• Where are you now in the ‘Traffic Lights of Life’?
    Published on January,31, 2013 | Olive Guillais-Lazure

    Redis an indication that it is compulsory for you to STOP.  The truth is that if, you ignore the ‘Red’ light, it may be hazardous both for you and others.When you are forced to stop, there are times, when those negative irritants from the past, can build up in your mind, and leave you with a sceptical viewpoint about life or aspects of your life. Whatever the case, having to STOP at a ‘Red’ light is part of the many trails sent to test our endurance, and ability to remain focused on the journey ahead.As you prepare to change gears, the lights will change from the combination of Red/Amber to ‘Green’.


    Greenis an indication that it is time to forge forwards, and ‘get going’ again. When the ‘Green’ light is displayed, there is that sense of being in control – of that of the Driver and not the passenger. The need to ‘move forwards’ with much more vigour and ’drive’, than you previously displayed over the past week, month or even years ago. There will be those awkward moments, when you may have a hard time deciding whether or not, you should stop or continue.You recall those times, when you thought you were going much too fast, and couldn’t make it through. Well, times have changed now, and your past experiences has left you feeling much more certain, positive and less cautious to proceed. You have learnt to slow down, and observed that not moving when the lights are ‘Green’ could leave you feeling like giving up on life, and the desires of your heart, for which you have the ‘right of way’.


    Amber is an indication of your hesitancy. You would like to proceed at anytime, though doing so with caution each time. Opportunities have come your way, and although you continue to give way, you sit waiting for the right moment, when all is clear – afraid in taking any kind of risks. You keep telling yourself, that by you waiting, things will give way. Those awkward moments shall arise, when you have to decide to slow down, observe your surroundings, either coming to a STOP or to continue driving off cautiously yet again.

    So where are you now in your ‘Traffic Lights of Life’?

    Could 2013, be the time to change the ‘Traffic Lights’ of your life, from coming to a complete STOP and instead get ready to GO ahead, with the knowing that you too, have been given the ‘Right of Way’.

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.
