Getting To Know Me – Colette Morris Q & A Session

So I was asked a series of questions by a Coach who wanted to know a bit more about the real Colette Morris, so here are the condensed answers.  Hoping this will give you a better insight into why I am the way I am, what led me here, and where I am going.  I would love to hear your comments  about this.

Q: What are you passionate about in life?

A:  Two things actually, Health and Wealth.

In my early thirties I went through a very stressful breakup, and my was in a high powered job at the time, which I shortly after became redundant.   This took its toll on my health, that is when I found out a lot about myself spiritually and mentally and started to look after my health.

 

I am passionate about changing peoples lives not only through better health initiatives, but also their outlook on wealth and lifestyle.

Q: How has your past influenced where you are now

A: As I mentioned before my circumstances suddenly changed, being once happily married 2 kids, great job, to having to manage on my own.  This changed my income flow drastically, so I had to find a way to replace the income that walked away.  This led me to the Network Marketing Industry  over 15 years ago and I have never looked back.  Not only did I earn a life changing income in the first few months of starting, but I looked at how and extra £100 or £250 a week can change someone’s lifestyle.

Q: How do you like to relax

A: I relax with a lovely glass of red and a good book. I also meditate every day.

 

Q: What is your personal mission?

A: To raise awareness of  individual self worth, pollution and its effects on health, creating a deeper sense of community engagement through positive thinking and healthy eating one household at a time.

Q: Do you have any causes or projects you care deeply about?

A: I have several causes that I care about, Dementia Care, Sight, and the entrepreneurial development of young children in developing countries.

I care about the environment we live in, there is too much pollution all around us, so if we can cut down use f chemicals, plastics and other pollutants on a personal level, this will all help moving forward.

I am working on a project at the moment, that involves the online distribution of organic, chemical free products that you can utilise in your home, such as cleaning products, nutritional supplements, skin care, makeup, essential oils and pet’s products.

Q: What is your favourite book?

A: There are too many books that I have read which have made an impact. But if I had to choose one, then it would have to be Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

 

Q: What advice would you give to your 21 year old self now

A:  Don’t stop learning. Do something each day that will make a difference to your life and that of others. Give thanks every day for the little things in life.  Do something exciting that you have never done each day!

Success Happens For Us Not To Us!

Listened to a motivational call today and it made me think…

If you have problems, don’t run away from them, life is teaching you lessons. If you didn’t have these problems or issues, you would not be able to cope with what other issues or problems comes to you. Life has a way of letting success happen FOR you, provided you take the steps to help yourself succeed.

Where you are, in your life right now? If you focus on the negatives, then more of that will follow. Whatever is happening in your life, is because of what you have been focussing on until now.

Most people don’t realise this and continue to moan, or be miserable or focus on the issue, rather than look outside of the issue to see what the lessons you are being taught by life. It is up to you to change things going forward.

You are able to get what you want in life, if you are able to manifest it. To be able to do this you need to have vision and objectives to help you focus. Don’t worry about HOW you will get there, just focus on the vision and the objective daily until whatever it is has manifested itself. The law of attraction works, you just have to have blind trusting faith in what ever it is you want that you will achieve this if you focus and believe.

Being grateful for the little things in life, will also help to bring your intention closer to you. Having a mindset of gratitude will make you see life in a more positive and focussed way.

Some people have a way about them, they critique even the smallest things, what they don’t realise is the negative vibes they are creating around themselves by doing this. This will only bring more negative vibes. For those that are around these people, if you begin to engage it will also bring you down to their level, and negativity will follow.

Life is far from perfect, so why look for perfection in everything you do? Nature is full of imperfect things, but they still create a vision of beauty.

Send out messages of gratitude daily and you will start to see changes in your life.

Success happens when you have vision and goals and take action to work towards them, success does not happen to us, it is something that is made up of hard work and years of effort.

Success happens FOR those who take action or steps to make it happen…

Mindset, Changes and Challenges

I am definitely all about sharing experiences.  It’s a way of helping others who are in a similar position to you.  We don’t know what is going on in each others lives, but by talking, it opens gateways.

Today I want to share how a shy mother of two young boys, found herself in the most daunting position in her life.  What was that you may ask? We all have ups and downs in life.  Each of us think we are all going through a unique situation, and are the only ones experiencing it.

News-Flash

You are not the only one going through changes in circumstance in your life! There are tons of self help books on every imaginable circumstance you can google……

I went from happily married mother with a lovely family to becoming a single parent with two young boys.  By the government standards my kids were in a family unit that did not stand a chance to progress in life, and even more so they were boys!!

My marriage broke down due to infidelity, and with that came mistrust.  Nothing new here. But to me it was my world crashing around me.

So, being my proud independent self, I didn’t want to be seen as a failure, even though I really felt like one, with a failed marriage behind me.  I won’t tell you here about what it did for my self esteem, that is another blog post!  My logical head kicked in, and I had to find a way to replace the salary that just walked out of the door.

So I had to find something that I could do while still doing a full time job…. I wanted to be around my kids, they needed me more now than ever being a single parent.

So I researched companies and things I could do online to work from home in the evenings when the kids were in bed.  That was the start of my Network Marketing Journey!!!

That was over 12  years ago now.  Working in the Network Marketing Industry has helped me to develop myself personally, I have had so many great mentors and teachers along the way such as the late great Jim Rohn, John C Maxwell (met them both in person), Tony Robbins, Eric Worre, Diane Hochman, Ray Higdon, Jordan Schultz, Abdul Waheed and many more.   This is a world I would never have entered if it were not for my circumstances of a failed marriage back then.  So I guess I should thank my lucky stars that things happened they way they did.

Often we do not realise that we are being held back from our path of greatness, life gets in the way and distracts us as to the reason that we are here.  Circumstance or fate whatever you wish to call it, brings you towards your path of greatness sometimes through tragedy, sometimes through ways which do not seem favourable at the time.

Destiny-QuoteI truly believe this.  Karma, the Universe, Law of Attraction, God, The Higher Being, what ever you refer to, you will be guided towards your greatness, but you have to learn how to listen, learn how to be guided, it is called your intuition.  Some of us are more intuned to this than others.  I will go through how you can improve your intuition through meditation in another blog post.

So, in closing my experience of developing one’s self, through reading recommended books such as

Jim Rohn – The Twelve Pillars

George Classon – The Richest Man in Babylon

Lynn Grabhorn – Excuse me Your Life is Waiting

Oprah Winfrey – What I know For Sure

More suggestions will be coming through in further blog posts, but these are the ones that helped improve my confidence, and set me on the path to where I am now!
