I did it! I Showed My Midlife Midriff!😎 

Shall I? Shan’t I? Have you ever wanted to wear a gorgeous outfit but you talked yourself out of it because you were concerned what others might think? Or wanted to share a video or record a Facebook Live – but worried what kind of reaction you would get? I know I have. Don’t let the negative self talk stop you from showing up and stealing your truth. Last week I was in sunny Cyprus with Andrew – and as you’ll remember one of my personal negative stories I’ve been telling myself for years, was that in my 50’s with scars, cellulite, a wobbly midlife midriff… I wasn’t comfortable to be seen in a bikini and so have hidden in one piece swimsuits. So on this holiday, I decided to call out that limiting belief for what it was and showed up poolside wearing my new bikinis. How did it feel? I felt very nervous when I took off my cover up. Did anyone gasp in horror? NO Did anyone even notice? NO Did the world stop turning? NO Did I survive? YES!! Did I feel good after a short while? YES really good!! I felt GREAT! And it felt totally empowering to breaking a limiting belief! Now, you may not bat an eyelid about wearing a bikini – and that’s great. But I wonder: Where are you holding yourself back and not showing up fully? I want to encourage you to be braver this week. How will you be more visible in your life and in your business? What’s the outcome you would love to have? Are you ‘walking your talk’? To help you feel braver, download, read and take action using the the second recent free workbook which I created for you ‘How To Overcome The Fear Of Being Visible’. Inside I’ll reveal to you: Why you fear being visible Coaching questions to ask yourself How to overcome the fear And how to receive empowering messages from your female ancestors Download your free workbook here. I’ve already had much positive feedback about the guide and workbook – it’s given some a much needed ‘nudge’, others have said it’s been ‘great advice’ and that they are now ‘taking action’ – and that it’s inspiring to see me ‘walking my talk’. Let me know how you intend to be braver this week? Tag me in any of your social media posts or email me to let me know!! I’ll be cheering you on and doing my best happy dance for you! Much love Ali xx

Feeling Invisible In Midlife

I mentioned a few weeks ago about the challenges that many midlife women say they face, which is beginning to feel like they are ‘invisible’.  I’ve had some really interesting emails back from ladies on my email list and some vary from the feeling of being ‘invisible’ – to the fear of being ‘visible’. I’ve put together a detailed guide for you – ‘From Invisibility In Midlife to Feeling Good & Standing Out!’ or for short ‘The Midlife Visibility Breakthrough’.  This is particularly for you, if you’re finding yourself feeling ‘invisible’ from time to time. You’ll find my guidance, questions to ask yourself and practical exercises to support you to regain your confidence and shine brightly in any situation. Click here to read and download your copy of the guide. When we are in the midst of the menopausal years with the various hormonal symptoms we experience in our bodies – and the big changes at home that often happen at this time of our lives, it’s no wonder you can forget how blooming amazing and valuable you are and instead feel like you’re melting into the background. I’d love to hear your feedback on ‘The Midlife Visibility Breakthrough’ – so please message me via email or send me a message on Facebook and let me know! Have a great week! Much love Ali xx        

Are You Highly Sensitive?

As a highly sensitive person (HSP) you may find yourself hiding out.  I don’t mean, behind the sofa – although I stopped watching Dr Who in the 1980’s when it got too scary.  I mean on social media platforms or live networking events. You’re may be more of an observer?  You like to see what’s going on, and have lots to share – but you can find yourself hanging back. I’ve been asking about this in our Global Fab Friends forum this past week.  And it seems to resonate. If you’re a hider and that’s a natural trait for you – own it.  Give yourself permission to accept that, it’s part of who you are.  And be kind to yourself, stop beating yourself up for not being someone you’re not!   I know this, because I find myself doing this occasionally too. There are times as an entrepreneur it’s absolutely ok to just be the observer – but when you want to promote your services you need to be seen, so that your prospects know it’s you they desire to work with.  Otherwise, you’ll be the best kept secret and that’s not good enough.  You know you have a voice to be heard and the mission you came to deliver. I have built a successful business being a ‘hider’ and as a highly sensitive person, and so can you. This week, notice your energy.  Are you controlling it – or is it controlling you? Take a step forward and choose, choose to show up, see how it feels.  Own your message and your voice and share it in a post or even on a video. Tiny steps begin to take you further down your path – you don’t have to cartwheels and being all rah-rah, down it!  And be proud of who you are and who you are becoming! And as always Expect a Miracle! Have a great week With love Ali x
