The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given!


I’ve learned a lot from people and personal experiences over the years, but one of the most important things I’ve learned is this…..


It takes the same amount of effort to be successful as it does to fail. Ultimate success is 90% in the mindset, and mindset is a choice; you get to choose wisely every day! 


Realising this changed everything for me. It made me see that EVERYTHING depends on our mindset.


And I realised our minds are the most powerful tool at our disposal. With over 60,000 thoughts per day running through this 3.5 lb organ, 80% of those thoughts are reoccurring thoughts that control your success ratio in life.


Our thought control our actions; our actions dictate our results, cause and effect.


“You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.” –

Marianne Williamson.



Our thoughts and beliefs determine our emotions and behaviours, and our emotions and behaviours dictate our actions and our outcomes.


Learning to use our thoughts and beliefs in a way that helps drive success can change our lives and our businesses.


It’s so liberating to know that when we show up in our business each day, we get to choose how we think about the day ahead and how we act.


It’s my why, the reason I set up The Power Within Training.


Think about it, we were all born with the capabilities of unlimited potential, yet as we go through life, we stop believing in our innate ability to be great at whatever we set our mind to.


As business leaders and career professionals, utilising the power of our minds and helping those we lead by using the power of their minds are critical factors to their success and our success.


It is how we adapt, develop and implement change within our business or organisation.


The effort we put into our endeavours is only one small part of the jigsaw (20-30%).


The rest comprises our thoughts and beliefs about how we see ourselves and others, the world, challenges and opportunities (60-70%) around us.

If you have inconsistent, negative or self-limiting thoughts, you get inconsistent, negative or self-limiting actions and inconsistent, negative or self-limiting results.


“Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”


William Shakespeare



Think about it……


Our mind can determine whether we feel positive or negative; if we see challenges or problems; whether we feel energetic or lacklustre if we feel inspired or stuck.


Situations will happen in business, but our response to them determines their impact, not the conditions themselves.


And the reality is that what we think will ultimately lead to what we get in life and business.


Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny


———-Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803 – 1882



So, are you harnessing the power of your mind?


Do you feel like you’re endlessly putting the work in, but the results aren’t quite coming, something is missing?


That missing element is almost certainly related to your mindset or motivational intelligence.


Whether it’s the way, you view yourself, the way you see your business, the world around you or your team.


Something in the way you think is holding you back.


However, the great news is that our mindset can always be changed, and our motivational intelligence (MQ) levels developed.


We can learn how to manage our thoughts in a way that drives us and our business forward to success…..


I am proof of this, and so are many of our clients.



The Power Within Training is all about motivational intelligence (MQ) and the power of our minds. We help leaders and emerging leaders develop a rock-solid mindset for success that will help transform their business results.



Whether our world-first Executive Diploma in Leading With Motivational Intelligence (MQ) or our Business Growth Academy, we’ll help you use the tools to harness the power of your mind and build your businesses for long-lasting success.
