Well, hello!

It’s great to see you having a stalk of the site.

I have a heads up for you.

We’re right in the middle of re-vamping the website content to reflect our movement towards Authentic Personal Branding.

We’ll be launching Australia’s first Personal Branding program that strips away all the rules of who you think you should be and shows you how you can be the real you, consistently and confidently, from the inside and out.

There will be two; one for entrepreneurs that are the face of their brand and the other is for employees within an organisation. For both the ladies and the gents.

In the meantime, check out one of the Personal Branding pillars; our image development services and let’s team up to grow your success from there.

SERVICES

 

Head over to the Facebook page; that’s where it’s all happening at the moment and join in on the conversations:

And sign up to the letter-of-the-news above, if you’d like to be kept in the loop of the launch.

I’ll catch you on the Facebook page!

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

Anxiety is eye opening.

The mind pacing from past to future fears helps you realise that you are neglecting your present reality.

The paranoia reminds you of the destructive trickery of your own self-criticism when you believe it.

And the pressure that overwhelms you highlights all of the perfectionist expectations and tendencies that you need to let go of.

Anxiety is powerful.

The paralysis forces you to look at all that you have been avoiding.

The resistance to change reminds you that you need to allow yourself to grow, evolve and transform.

And the adrenaline that consumes you helps you leverage off the force of your emotions.

Anxiety is a teacher.

The racing of your mind opens up your world to the practice of mindfulness, self-care and gratitude.

The fear of repeating past mistakes helps you acknowledge that you have evolved from the person you were back then.

And the fear of the unknown reminds you that you are embarking on a new adventure, the one that you have been asking for.

Everything on your life’s to-do list is going to get done. Every bit of it.

You just need to stop for one moment to give your anxiety a chance to share its message with you.

That one realisation will bring with it the blanket of peace that your being is desperately crying out for. X

Even though you think it's moving slowly, you must trust in the pace of your progress.

Every situation you're questioning.

Every decision you're making.

Every dollar you're investing.

Is shaping you.

Every challenge you're facing.

Every mistake you're making.

Every thing you're learning.

Is preparing you.

Every time you get up and show up.

Every time you push through your self-criticism.

Every time you stand strong when a person is challenging you.

Is strengthening you.

You are on your way in the perfect way, at the perfect pace, for you.

You are exactly where you are meant to be right now.

Keep focused.

Keep your vision alive.

It will become your reality.

Every day is a day closer to the day you achieve it. X

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

There aren't any blocks that are preventing you from moving forward.

You've created illusionary ones because of the fear you are feeling as you cling so tightly to a branch that's keeping you in your comfort zone.

You think this branch is saving you from falling.

From repeating past mistakes.

From moving forward into the unknown.

But the reality is, the branch will erode in time. It will start to wear out, dry out and eventually break.

As will your current circumstances, the longer you sit in fear.

New trees are growing.

New life is forming.

Everything is evolving around you despite your fear of accepting it.

You have to let go.

You have to know that the branch isn't saving you from falling, your arms are.

You have to realise that the branch will break, but you have the ability to fly. X

Colette Werden with Colette Werden.

The destructive thoughts will come.

They always do.

No matter how disciplined, committed and positive you are, there will be moments that these thoughts will hit and threaten to throw your back up against the wall.

They will try to weaken you.

To diffuse your happy streak, crush your self-confidence and coax you into believing that you do not have what it takes.

This is normal.

But for someone as determined as you, giving into those thoughts isn't an option.

You will not live a life without destructive thoughts.

But you can live a life leveraging off those thoughts.

Laughing at them.

Using them as ammunition to keep going, to do better, to be greater.

Showing them that no matter how many times they come back, you will never give them life.

The destructive thoughts are weak without your belief in them.

They do not own you or define you.

You have all the power. X

This face describes our New York adventure so far.

Decadent champagne, locations and company.

I'm posting a load of content on Instagram Stories, thanks for playing along with your messages and comments of the videos!

Apart from a minor heart failure when I lost my phone for half an hour, we're having a great time. Business and pleasure is the perfect mix.

Our tour group arrives tomorrow - we'll get stuck into a very exciting itinerary - will share all with you on Instagram. X
