#theleapstories / I'm pretty sure we all struggle with #ImposterSyndrome at some point. I think Cyan's strategy of having two manifestos to go when it rears its head is pretty handy. I'd love to know how do you deal with it...  #ofkin @envato #cyantaeed

#theleapstories #60 | A core aspect of taking a leap is self awareness about your beliefs. Because as Henry Ford is quoted as saying weather you think you can or think you cant youre right. So its a good bet to prime yourself with positivity. . But its not as easy as saying just think positive! or chin up buttercup!. Positive psychology research tells us that it takes focussing on the good in your life and mostly the small seemingly insignificant things that happen in everyday life. Looking…

Life only gets better by the choices we make. You can go low. You can be pulled down. You can be kept small. You can believe the naysayers. You can listen to your inner critic. You can relentlessly push your happiness to the other side of 'success'. But that's not where happy well thriving humans live. Cultivate your inner mentor surround yourself with your champions raise your voice your hand and your self esteem. Design a life that's good for you and your priorities curiosities and…

#theleapstories #23 / When you were growing up did you have someone who backed you? Who believed in you? Who told 'You Are Brave'?

#theleapstories #48 | Im always in awe of people who always knew what they wanted to do with their career from childhood and then went out and actually did it. I came close. I did the degree to get me there and then leapt in another direction. I parked that potential career because I wasnt sure how I would make it work and there was a recession. And now 20 years later I find myself on the edge of leaping back to dig back into those ideasI was curious about as an emerging adult but with a…

#theleapstories #65 | Over the many stories I've recorded in this series travel seems to be a common leaping ingredient - either as a way to escape the known and see life differently or as way to tap into different tastes textures and terrains. .

#theleapstories #64 | When I registered my business name nearly eight years ago I was drawing on the idea that I wanted to connect with people who cared about the same things I did and while they may not be direct next-of-kin in the truest sense they somehow felt like another family like kin.
