“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you are probably right”
Every so often I stumble across somebody with a unique alternative health or lifestyle approach that spins my wheels. Of course, in the clinic I use natural therapies to facilitate changes within the body to gain better health and maximise fertility. However, health isn’t limited to the physical and whilst chinese medicine certainly recgonises this, sometimes we need more than some acupuncture or herbal medicine to make our lives better.
A very important question I ask patients is, ‘are you happy with your job?’ or ‘are you a happy person?’ You see, if the answer is no, it’s time to find ways to change that and set the wheels in motion, stat. Why? Because it affects every inch of our being, our mind and our body and relevantly, our fertility. Chinese medicine recognises the intimate connection between the mind and reproductive organs. How many times have your spoken to somebody who fell pregnant after ‘letting go.’ It happens. But sometimes we don’t have the tools to let go or move outside the walls of life – this is not limited to fertility of course. Lara suggests that all day long we are making choices about what to do and what to think, however, a lot of the time we are not choosing consciously. The reality is, some of the time we choose our thoughts and actions whilst other times, they choose us and as a result some of our thoughts and actions lift us up whilst others bring us down. I’ve known Lara for some time now – a very clever and inspirational women who has the means to change lives. I know just how important happiness is for health and so I wanted her to share a little with you about what she is doing – lets face it, we all have areas in our lives that need a little (or a huge) overhaul – it’s a matter of allowing it to happen. Lara can show you how.
Lara – I’ll let you introduce yourself – exactly what do you do?
In simple terms I’m a Self-Leadership mentor. That includes my work as a business and human performance strategist, speaker, writer, workshop facilitator and self-leadership mentor. Self-Leadership is defined as: An empowered individual, who is self-aware, transformed in thinking and has the tools to create the results they want to achieve in life!
I facilitate workshops teaching Self-Leadership principles to individuals and business operators. The essence of my work centres on three core elements:
1. Expanding your mind;
2. Transforming your potential; and
3. Being the best you can be.
