Book reviews

I’m going to write book reviews on various personal development books once a fortnight. I love, love, love learning about personal development because it fills me with so much inspiration and motivation. I receive tons of wisdom and knowledge through these books because many of the authors are seriously accomplished people, and therefore I get to learn from them without having to make the same mistakes. Moreover, I think it’s a brilliant way to develop focus, clarity and discipline.

Thinking Into Results

A couple of weeks ago I started Thinking Into Results, a personal development programme with the Proctor Gallager Institute. The institute is run by Bob Proctor, a renown personal development guru, and Sally Gallager, a business entrepreneur.

The main point of the programme is to begin thinking about life in new ways. It’s about breaking old habits and putting in place new ones so that you can improve yourself and expand your potential. Essentially, you’re thinking big and developing the self-discipline to change habitual behaviours.

Reading my old blog posts

I’ve been reading some of the entries from my beginner days on WordPress way back in early 2015. I created my blog to talk about my goals and share my journey with absolutely anyone who’d care to listen!

In my earlier posts I was mostly focussing on getting into drama school and preparing for a solid career as an actor. Four years later, so much has happened in my life and so much has changed: some downs, but many, many, many more ups. Thankfully.

I’m so proud to say that my fighting spirit hasn’t left me. I’m still advancing in my acting career and my self-belief has never been stronger. Continue reading

My Mastermind Group

I created a Mastermind Group recently which includes myself and two of my good friends who are also actors. The purpose of the group is for us to share tips and advice on the acting industry as well as stuff on motivation, money and personal development.

Our Mastermind Group has a WhatsApp conversation where we talk ideas, knowledge and share what we learn daily. We like to post motivational videos from YouTube, discuss new movies and plays, recommend articles and blog posts, and networking opportunities and events.

End of Day 2: Introduction to Life Coaching

My 2 day ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ with The Coaching Academy is now all done and I literally feel like my mind has opened up to a brand new way of thinking, living and being.

The Coaching Academy

The day was split into two parts. During the first half of the day we looked at personal beliefs and what effect they have on our behaviour. In general, beliefs can be categorised in two ways: they either prevent from taking action or they empower us to take action. Most astonishingly, for many of the beliefs that we hold, we aren’t even aware that we have them as they are so deep-rooted and ingrained in us; in short, they are subconscious beliefs that have never (or rarely) been challenged during our lifetime.

End of day 1: Introduction to Life Coaching

Simply put, today was absolutely amazing. I finished Day 1 of my ‘Introduction to Life Coaching’ and I feel extremely inspired and super, super excited for the future.

The seminar was run by The Coaching Academy who offer various programmes to train people to become life coaches within a specific field e.g. coaching for the youth, small business coaching or coaching within the corporate world.

I didn’t have many expectations prior to today. I came to the seminar with an open mind, hoping to gain some new techniques that could facilitate my own personal development and boost my motivation; and I definitely wasn’t expecting the day to be half as engaging or inspiring as it was.
