• Reflective Moments!

    Upon Reflection of 20-12

    As 2012 draws to a close, upon reflection what would you say were your highlights or your lows around your personal life, your business, your career, your relationship, your finances etc?

    -> Did you find yourself going through difficult times?

    -> Were you playing mediocre because you were too afraid to play fabulous?

    -> Did you lose your job or made redundant and finding this difficult to cope with?

    -> Were you having to ‘cut your coat, according to your size’?

    Nonetheless, it is disruptions, and the experiences that make us truly value, and appreciate the beauty of life more. Disruptions make us appreciate ourselves, and the things that we have taken for granted, before the disruptions. It is only when you have experienced losing your job, or experienced financial difficulties that you are able to identify with others, that have had a similar experience.

    I have learnt a great deal in 2012 about appreciation, and even go as far as saying that a disruption causes you to ‘STOP’ and appreciate the things that you would never have valued without the disruption.

    The experience caused by a disruption can bring about the spiritual dimension of life, our growth, and even the validation of the choices we have made. It is also our experiences that shapes our values and our character.

    The journey may seem tiresome, and in cases never ending, though upon reflection, when you look BACK on 2012, you will be able to see how far you have scaled, and acknowledge your accomplishments, despite the disruptions. Then look FORWARD to 2013, and how much more there is, of YOUR life journey to attain.

Client Testimonials

  • Once again thank you for the excellent training.

    I found the presentation of the high level workflow very helpful. It enabled me to understand the organisational structure, the core duties for each section, the authorising procedure and the work processes required to achieve desired outcomes. This diagrammatic overview is worth more than a 1000 words and helps provide a mental picture of the ‘grand design’.

    Being able to formulate these concepts in the way in which you did; displayed an ability to empathise with newcomers and empower them to effortlessly connect with the workflow more speedily. If I had not received your information at the time that I did; it would have taken longer for me to process overall procedures.

    Also highlighting key concepts to manage data processing prevented overload and helped me understand core tasks I need to master in order to establish a baseline of future success.

    Your assistance has been invaluable.

  • I attended the ‘How comfortable are you shrinking to fit’ through business/personal life’ Workshop. It was the jump start I needed. I knew I had lots of skills and experience but I lacked the motivation. I was stuck and shrinking by the minute. The workshop helped me to release any negative doubts and to fulfill my potential. I left the workshop excited about creating a life without limits’. Thank you Olive you are an inspiration.

  • Olive has an empathetic and encouraging coaching style. Olive has helped me become more self aware and to vocalise thoughts and put actions into place to help me move forward with my goals. I have enjoyed working with Olive as my coach.

  • Very powerful conversation there with Kamara. I loved it. Olive you have a very good voice for media & you instil confidence in the interviewee.

  • Before you even started your presentation, your positive energy was felt in the room. During the presentation, I felt I had went through a self discovery journey. Also, I have found answers to what was holding me back.
    After the presentation, I felt very happy and physically a lot lighter than before.

    The next morning, I woke up feeling very refresh and I was able to focus and get tasks done which would normally take me a couple of weeks to do, which it took me a couple of hours.

  • Olive has a very unique ability to address the key issues and was able to help me determine (for myself) what I needed to do in my life to achieve the goals I had set out at our initial session.

  • Olive was clear in making sure I considered and exercised all options and tools available to me to which could help with managing my time. After each session I was encouraged to go away and think about my options, write them down in conjunction with statements so that, not only my mind was conditioned to think more optimistically about tasks that lay ahead, but also I became active in making sure that outstanding tasks were completed.

  • The coaching has really helped me in achieving my goals. It has helped in putting my business in the right perspective. It has also helped me to stay focused, and to have a more positive attitude.

    Olive has really helped me to discover who I am. Now I can put things down on paper and take action, and to avoid procrastination as much as possible. Big thank you to you Olive for helping me discover myself.
