Success and Wellness tip on….


Are you mastering your life or is life mastering you? Many clients come to see me because they are being mastered by their circumstances. They are at the mercy of their careers, their family schedules or their conflicts. They have absolutely no time to stop and smell the roses. Often all dimensions of their lives are in deficit, with little room left for self-care. At this point in their life they are overly sensitive and easily irritated. My work with them usually includes attaining a level of self-mastery.

Self-mastery is the essence of living well. It is living with care, so that you have the inner strength to control your impulses, emotions and actions. It is being in tune with yourself and with your life, making time to think critically about your choices, taking inventory of your actions and assessing yourself and your life results against the goals you have outlined for yourself. If you don’t yet have goals, don’t worry. Together we can help you identify some clear goals to provide you with direction and motivation.

Six years ago, I created an integrated model approach to wellness success to help me find more balance and to help me align my wellness. I did not want to end up being widely successful and unwell or too busy to enjoy the important things in my life.

This Wellness System model has helped me live well and I have used it to help many clients find self- mastery and balance, so they can live, work and play well.


If you had to score yourself on self-mastery, where would you fall? Are you finding yourself easily flustered and irritated by the small stuff? Do you take time to reflect on your life and assess how well you are living? Do you have goals by which you measure your life successes?

Coaching Questions

  1. Are you happy with your level of self-mastery?
  2. Is there something you can do today to improve your self-mastery?
  3. Is there one thing you can stop doing today that will help you get a step closer to your life goals?

Remember you are in the driver’s seat of your life, so if you don’t like what’s happening you are the only one who can make the necessary changes. Please check in with me for a free consultation on how you can improve your self-mastery.

I would love to hear how you are building in wellness success plans that mirror your other areas of life success. Share with me on my blog.
