When was the last time you did something new?

Hello beautiful people!!

Today has been a great day, full of wonder, magic and connection. A day in which the vibration of love, gratitude and happiness were passing through my body in constant flow.

Today I took the first steps with mailchimp and grouping all my contacts, for the SEXY and JUICY newsletter that will be available to you in a couple of days! Also, a refreshing and grounding kundalini session, and a power nap around 13.00 completely restored my energies allowing me to cycle more than 15 miles! I’m also really proud by my first successful English class and the meeting with Steve and Wendy, members of the Uber Team Wandsworth  that from Monday will facilitate the transition and self discovery of hundreds of Inspiring Young People at the NCS (National Citizen service).

Thinking about what happened today, what I’m really grateful for is the pinky sky of London under which my bike ride on Gratitude(the name of my bike) turned to be the best ever!

Also I recognise the value of the meaningful chat with Steve and Wendy.

Around the end of the conversation, Steve, inspired from Albert Einstein, asked Us:

“When Was the Last time You did something New?”

I believe is challenging question to answer, because it has a double blade. Or One’s Life is so repetitive that one does the same things day after day (maybe complaining because of the monotony of it ). Or, on the other end, One’s Life is so rich and growing that is difficult to choose which one to pick.

Where are You on this scale?

What can You do today to make Your Life More JUICY and SEXY?

I prefer the SEXY side of it, so it is difficult to count all the new things I have learned or done in the last 5h…

But there is one thing I have learned, that I’d like to share with You.

One skill that is really making some moment of my life really funny and special.

What is it?

I’ve learned how to Bike Stand at the red traffic lights!!!!!!!! SEXY!!!!

Now, I embrace every red light with joy and fun (sometimes hoping for it). Every red light is now a new game, a new challenge!

My goal is to stand at 10 consecutive red light, always standing on my bike!!

I’ll make it!!!

Thank You for being with me also tonight and I wish joyful dreams!!

When it all began (part 1)

Hello!!

Today I’m inspired to talk to you about me, and in particular about the exciting journey that led me to work as a coach! I cannot say it has been all rose, flowers and joy… I had to pass through very challenging growing experiences, which now I’m grateful for. Experiences that led me to where now I am and who I am….

It all started 2 years ago, around September 2010, just after my 22nd birthday. At the moment I was living in Sheperd’s bush and working at Assaggi, a famous Italian restaurant in Notting Hill. I couldn’t complain about my income and my lifestyle too. I was travelling once a month visiting different European capitals, I had a very active sexual life, going to the gym everyday and my body was in perfect shape ( or I thought so). I was fairly happy, but after one year of the same routine I started getting bored, desiring something more from my life, something to look for, something that could stretch me. So I took the decision that I wanted more from the life I was living. I wanted to grow. Smoking pots and partying at night, wasn’t the life I was planning to live in the future, even though I was enjoying  it very much!

And as usual, when the student is ready, the right master appears. And funny enough, the right master was a website… Yes!! A Website!! http://www.piuchepuoi.it/ It is the main Italian personal development website full of free resources and online programmes. It took me a while to really grasp what was all about, but I had the feeling that everything that was written there was really important for my life if I wanted to bring it to a new level. Then I started, daily to spend my time diving into the free article and programmes. And it was there that I met 2 words, new to my vocabulary, that shaped my life, paving the street to where I am now. These 2 words were: Life Coach, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming).

And the more I was reading, the more my passion was growing. One day, while I was doing an excursion at the Waterstone Library of Notting Hill Gate, my sight was captured by a book entitled “The NLP Coach” written by Ian McDermot and Wendy Jago (Which I highly recommend as self-development book). As soon as the book touched my hands, I knew that I had to buy it, that there was something in there for me .

I was reading the book and absorbing the content any time I could. In particular during the long journeys in the tube. And one day…. One day that started like any other day, while reading in the carriage of the tube that was carrying me to Notting Hill, a gorgeous woman with his charming husband, broke my focus, asking me what I was reading. Princess D and Pradeep Mishra, that turned out playing an important role in my life 1 year later. They were both working as coaches and trainers on their company Alchemy Training. We started immediately connecting on a deeper level. Like we have been knowing each other for years. And was in that moment that she mentioned the name of an academy…. Called the Coaching Academy, that was hosting free 2 days events to explain the coaching principles…..

As soon as I got home I knew that the right next steps for me were to turn on the laptop, go to the website of the coaching academy and book myself for the free event.

And it was in that moment, that something magical happened…

Love and Light to You

The 1st day of a rising entrepreneur!

Hello dear followers!

It is fantastic to connect with you again!

Today is a great day, a day when a new rising entrepreneurial star is born!

Today Is my first day of self employment! It is the first step of the decision made a couple of weeks ago, where I committed myself that from that moment on, I’ll be my own boss, because I don’t need to have somebody to work for…. I can create what I want!!

Why I do it? I want to step into the possibilities of financial independence! I want to leave the life I’m dreaming, and invest my earning for my personal and for the human development. Once financially independent I can effortlessly contribute more to the society I want to co-create. A world where each individual has the power, the belief and the confidence to shine his own light, respecting the environment and the beauty of every Life.

How am I going to do it? I use the tools, the knowledge and the wisdom I have, to empower the light of each children, youths, adults. Like an alchemist, I facilitate the transformation and the growth of what is already good to something outstanding!

I’m so excited as I’m writing that a smile is now painted on my face!

I’d like now to share with you what I’ve learned through the day, what I’ve realised, what worked and what didn’t.

The first realisation was that I need to create a business plan, decide how many hours of my time and energy I’m going to invest weekly, which tools I’ll use, which media can help me in my mission and the strategies I’m going to adopt to make my business grow. Also after the seminar of tonight around marketing I realised that this a world I need to explore further and master.

The experience of working from home has been very meaningful. I felt immediately a sense of freedom and power that drove me through the day. And, on the other and, I felt also the burden of the increasing responsibility , that lead me to a feeling of overwhelm for all the necessary practicalities that will make my creation grow successfully. Also, looking at my bank account, the gremlin of “”OH MY GOD HOW AM I GOING TO PAY THE NEXT RENT” kicked in, which I calmed down with 10 min of EFT, creating in me a sense of power and abundance that replaced the negative feelings and the negative chatterbox.

Also I had to deal with a lack of time management, created from the frequent interruption created by checking Facebook, email, texts, phone calls and the frequent day dreaming.

But at the end of the day I managed to complete 7 of the 10 tasks that were important for me to achieve, with the aim to reach the target of 8 tomorrow.

Also the Kundalini Yoga session helped me to balance the drowsiness I’m experiencing in these days, due to the change of my sleeping pattern. One of my goal is to re-train myself to sleep 4,5h per night. Life is so juicy and there are so many experiences I want to enjoy, that I want more awaken time! And I’m aware that the tiredness I’m experiencing is part of the process, therefore I keep on going!!!!

At the end of this awaken time I can say that I feel tired, but happier and with the joy of my vision hold into my mind… I’M GONNA MAKE IT!! NO MATTER WHAT!!

I wish you all a good resting time and enlightening awakening!!

7 steps for Self Management

Ciao a tutti!!

I wish I’m finding you Well, Happy, Healthy and Abundant!!

(The following post has a lot of information and I decided to write in bold the key information )

Tonight’s post is about Self Management, a topic very broad that includes meaningful subgroups.

I’ll share with you what does it mean for me,  what I discovered about myself this afternoon, and a tool I used this afternoon to organise messy paperwork of 4 months of training, writing and reading.

Self Management: the art of focusing body and mind towards a specific task, controlling the useless information and achieving the aim in a pre-established time frame. i.e. The Art of Self Control.

The term Self Management is a big jigsaw, formed by 3 main pieces:

  1. Time Management: the ability to achieve in a determined time frame
  2. Mind Management: the ability to make friendship with the chatterbox
  3. Body Management: the ability to integrate sabotaging feelings

All the 3 main pieces are fundamental to complete the jigsaw of Self Management.

I’ll go in more details and I’ll share with you, in the next posts, the tools that has been more effective for me.

This afternoon, after a shining Kundalini Yoga class, and looking at the pile of sheets all over my room, I decide that was time to leave the visionary side of me for a while, stepping into the managerial one. With the aim of organising all the paper work and create an organised system that could support me in the future.

As soon as I sit down, surrounded by what seemed at the beginning a “Mission Impossible”, strong feelings of discomfort started arising in my chest, the same feelings and thoughts that in the past prevented me to manage my paperwork effectively. Maybe You have heard inside yourself that voice too: “I’ll do it tomorrow, for the moment I just want to relax…” “I can wait just 10 min more…” And then those 10 min, turned into tomorrow, days, weeks and months. Me and that voice are working really well together!!

This time was different, I decided take I was going to do it, no matter what.

  1. The first thing to do was to clear or at least lower the volume of the emotions and the beliefs that were leading me to a different direction.
  2. I worked on the feelings using EFT* for 30 min, and through muscle testing* I identified that I had, and probably still have the strong sabotaging belief that “I am a very disorganised person”.  Looking at my surroundings I wasn’t a surprise at all!!
  3. As soon as the feeling lowered the intensity, I installed the belief that I am an highly organised person, approaching the afternoon to come with a sense of joy, passion and ease, like it was the funniest task ever!
  4. I asked myself: “Which is the most effective and creative way in which I can store and organise all the paperwork?” 
  5. The answer that came to me was to divide all the sheets by category, without analysing them. Just separating them topic to topic.
  6. After it has been the time to identify which had to be reviewed.
  7. And finally store them in the appropriate folder.

So I sat on the floor, surround by the headers written in little sheets. I started placing every paper under the appropriate category, looking at which had to be reviewed and store them in their folder!

In 3 hours, all that seemed at the beginning a “Mission Impossible”, has been accomplished, and I’m so proud to my creative side for the tools that enabled me, with fun, to achieve my goal of the day!

I call this the 7  Self Management step model.

  1. Acknowledge the feeling.
  2. Recognise the correspondent limiting beliefs/ fears.
  3. Lower the Volume.
  4. Think specifically about what you want and ask the right question.
  5. Take inspiration. 
  6.  Use the right tool.  
  7. Celebrate!

I’ll post also the 7 step Overwhelm free tool (organise arrear paperwork).

I hope this will be useful for you has it has been for me!

Much Love to You all!!

May your life be always happy!!
