Hi! from Tania

Hi there,

I hope you've been enjoying this festive season and have had some time now to relax too! Here are Jake and Holly hamming it up at our local Christmas Carols in the Park concert. I think Holly's ballet concert has given her a love of being on stage.

My beautiful vision for our Christmas lunch under a marquee on our front lawn had to be changed (due to the weather) to rearranging our furniture and hosting twenty-one people in our two front rooms. It was probably a blessing in disguise with the added luxury of airconditioning, rather than flies this year.

Wishing you a wonderful 2012 and fulfilment of your special goals and life's dreams!

Warm wishes,

Feature: 10 Ways to Raise Your Self-Esteem

Your self image is the relationship you have with yourself. Why is this the most important relationship you'll ever have?

According to Kris Cole, author of Crystal Clear Communication, the view we hold of ourselves - whether positive, negative or indifferent - guides everything we say and do. It plays a central role in our success, in our communications and in our lives.

Here are 10 things she recommends to do to help raise your self- esteem:

  1. Take responsibility: Instead of blaming others, take responsibility for being happy, achieving your goals and enjoying your life.
  2. Positive thoughts and feelings: Instead of focusing on your faults, think positive thoughts and share positive feelings that build your confidence and make you feel good, competent and self-sufficient.
  3. Associate with people who have high self-esteeem: Instead of hanging out with losers, associate with people who have high self-esteem and who make you feel good about yourself.
  4. Participate in activities you enjoy: Instead of sitting at home, get out and participate in activities you find enjoyable.
  5. Acknowledge yourself and celebrate your successes: Instead of being critical of yourself and others, look for something likeable in yourself and in everyone you know and meet. Instead of focusing on your failures, acknowledge your achievements and celebrate your successes.
  6. Focus on being the person you want to be: Instead of trying to change others, focus on being the person you want to be.
  7. Live in the present: Instead of living in the future or the past, live in the present.
  8. Nurture yourself: Instead of overeating, overdrinking and underexercising, take good care of yourself - you deserve it!
  9. Develop your talents and skills: Instead of saying 'I can't do this' or 'I don't know anything about this', read, attend seminars, learn - do whatever you can to continue to develop your talents and skills.
  10. Accept compliments with grace: Instead of saying 'Oh, it's nothing really,' accept others' compliments - say 'Thank you!' and enjoy praise without embarrassment.

Bring Your 2012 Goals and Dreams to Life!

As 2011 rapidly draws to a close, you might be starting to think about your goals and dreams for 2012.

I always take some time out between Christmas and New Year's Eve to review the year and to be grateful for the many experiences I've had, people I've met and lessons I've learnt. I also spend some time dreaming about what I'd like to do, see and achieve in the year ahead.

Parent Manifesto: Create a parenting approach for your family



There's that worry that instead of setting your kids up for life, you're stuffing them up.

You want to give your kids the best opportunities, raise them to be decent human beings, and maintain a loving home life. But raising children can be demanding, daunting and exhausting.

And when you're bombarded with conflicting and confusing parenting information, you feel judged by others, and you wonder if you're the only one who's not loving every moment, your confidence can evaporate.

You can create a loving home life, and you can worry less and enjoy parenting more. But only if you raise your kids your way. Create a parenting approach that's perfect for you and your family. You're the expert.

The Parent Manifesto helps you:

  • Stop feeling guilty or frustrated when other people's parenting approaches don't work for your family
  • Confidently create a stable and loving life for your family
  • Develop your own set of family guidelines to live by that fit with the unique way your family works
  • Strengthen your relationships with your partner, family and friends
  • Develop your ability to stay strong when things are not going so well.

Only $34.95. Order now! Includes F.REE delivery!

'For once, a book that empowers, encourages and leaves its readers (parents!) feeling positive about their parenting instead of deflated that they can't live up to all that's expected of them. Thank you for this book! I'm sure it's going to make a huge difference to a lot of people! Kristie Visser



Rich on dreams, poor on time and energy!


So many people I consult with report that they're just too tired.

Feeling more energetic is often all that is required to provide that little extra invigoration to clear the clutter in your way.

Adaptogens are a class of herbs considered by herbalists as a tonic and they have been used for thousands of years to help support stamina and endurance and reduce the effects of the many types of stress in our lives. No, they don't just work like a hit of caffeine, but provide a more steady and lasting pick-up in energy.

Other beneficial attributes of adaptogens include:

  • improved immune resistance
  • less anxiety
  • better focus and concentration; and
  • better motivation and productivity.

There are many well-researched adaptogenic herbs available today in many different forms.
