The Daily Habit is full of snappy and thought provoking questions. It forced me to question my intentions and interactions. A great reality check and reminder to slow down and soak it all in - before it’s gone!
The Daily Habit is all about creating little shifts in your everyday life. Now that I’m done I appreciate how far I have come in the last 70 days. I feel like I am a lot more kinder to myself and I now have two significant goals I am working towards. I used to be the sort of person who was so caught up in being busy that I never sat down to plan anything and I guess that showed in my life. Always doing something but going nowhere in particular. I feel a lot more ‘on’ purpose. Thanks Mel.
How can you behave in a way that makes you feel proud of who you are? This was by far the most profound and confronting question for me (from the daily habit). It made me face a few hard truths about myself - exactly what I needed it when I needed it most.
The Daily Habit is a friendly kick up the butt! A great way to stay focused on what’s important as you go about your day. It got me thinking about things and my people interactions in new ways. I feel a lot more thoughtful before I speak.
I become more mindful of my actions and intentions as I went through The Daily Habit. I loved having the daily prompts waiting for me in the morning. It helped set me up for a positive day.
If you need clarity on what you are doing and where you want to go, talk to Mel, immediately! It turns out I was wasting time and money, and focusing my energy in all the wrong places. It feels great to be empowered once more. I really enjoyed the process; it’s been insightful and rewarding.
For many years I have felt I should be doing more with my life than living this never ending hamster wheel of the corporate world. After reading Mel’s book, I realised I have been stuck with the mindset of probably many others that it’s far easier to continue doing what you know, rather than taking a risk, whether it be large or small to make a change for the better. Live your vision has put a lot of things into perspective for me. A worthwhile read! Mel was born to do this!
Reading ‘Live your vision’ has helped me dissect my situation and ‘fears’ into manageable chunks. It helped me manage my own expectations and fears about where I would like to go. My fears are unfounded and if they are valid, I became more aware of how to go about addressing them. The easy to read language also made it fun and interactive.
I was going around in circles and was desperate for a change but couldn’t find a way out of my funk. I found the coaching process quite challenging at first because I had to face up to myself but I knew I needed to do something different - finally! I felt more re-energised with every session and the more things became clearer, the more I knew what I needed to do. I quit my job, started a new career and have never looked back. Working with Mel was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
Thank you so much for writing this fabulous life-changing book. It was an easy, thought-provoking and motivating read. The Vision building process is brilliant and can be tailored to your requirements. I loved the simple practical activities and have already applied these with some of my colleagues at work and family...It has also instilled valuable behaviours into my young children around planning and prioritising the things in life that can truly bring happiness. I would highly recommend Live your vision as a very worthwhile quality life investment.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Live your vision. Not only was it straight to the point but it did in a casual and uplifting way! Reading the book gave me the insight into some simple but often overlooked aspects on the purpose of my life “what is my purpose of being and who should i really be living for...’
I was going through a period where I felt I needed to take a break from things and to refocus on the things that were important to me. I was fed up with work and took a year off to re-evaluate what I wanted to do in life. Halfway through the year, I felt I wasn’t quite achieving the things that I had initially set out to do. I had always been curious about life coaching and what it could do for me, and I felt that if there was any time to give it a go, this was the time.Signing up for some coaching sessions with Mel was a really big step in itself. I have never been one to openly share my thoughts and feelings to others. I had always felt that if I ever did need help, I was intuitive enough to work out what was bothering me.Despite my initial fears, Mel patiently guided me through each session with a comforting hand and made the whole process non-confronting and something I keenly looked forward to. Her ability to ask questions gently and directly helped me to speak my true thoughts and feelings. As we talked, I gained more and more clarity into what was important to me. Mel works without judgement or preconceived ideas about what the right answer to each question or situation might be. Instead, she guides you through a journey that allows you to progressively work these things out for yourself, but she is there every step of the way to help you get there. I always came out of each session feeling rejuvenated and refocused.Mel’s coaching has had a significant impact on me, in both my personal as well as my professional life. I’m proud of my newly discovered ability to think bigger and set achievable goals that are tailor-made to my lifestyle and values. I now actively celebrate successes and don’t take things for granted. I have learnt to get my thoughts out on paper, and into an achievable plan of action. My personal and professional life now feel aligned; and I am excited about the balance that I have restored back in my life.Thanks Mel for a wonderful 3 months! it has really opened up my eyes to my own potential, and I look forward to sharing with you what the future will bring!
I was already thinking about changing a lot of things but didn’t really know where to start. My sessions with Mel helped me to more clearly identify what I was wanting to change (eating and sleeping patterns, exercise, reducing some bad habits and Uni work), think about how I could break them down into smaller and more achievable goals, as well as notice some of the less helpful thinks I was telling myself that were stopping me making some progress in changing some of my behaviours (e.g. “I should do this…” “Because I have to” etc.). I couldn’t think of the ‘right’ answers to a simple question Mel asked me several times “what one thing would most help you to start achieving your goals?” and then the answer suddenly occurred to me. The sessions were very helpful.
