One of the most powerful TED talks that I have ever watched

  I watch a number TED Talks for various reasons; to be inspired, educated and even to learn from the speakers styles.

The Social Media Illusion

  You may have seen my post last week, Going Behind the Scenes and what I learnt about illusion from my time working backstage in theatres. The same can be said about Social Media.

7 Keys of Confidence ~ Opening to possibilities

  We live in a culture where clarity and certainty is favoured over ambiguity and vagueness. Sounds innocent enough right? But what if that need for certainty was a block to your confidence? What if instead it created rigidity and limitations that prevent the growth of the feelings you most want? I discovered this for…
