The Silent Warrior – Meet The Incredible Miss C

This is my personal truth. When Adriaan told me that he would not be able to do the Sky Run with me this year, I was more than just a little disappointed.  Not only did I lose my training partner 3 weeks before the event last year, which means I know how tough those long […]

The Silent Warrior – Moving Into The Pain

This is my personal truth. I hold her soft warm body gently in my arms.  Cleo looks up at me with her piercing emerald green eyes, filled with love, filled with trust.  Not understanding why the tears are silently running down my cheeks.  Not understanding why we are in this strange place and why they had put […]

The Silent Warrior – Finding Inspired Action

This is my personal truth. The cursed hows… When embarking on the journey of any goal, the first thing people tend to ask me, is how?  What do they need to do in order to achieve the goal?  In fact, it has been my experience that the majority of people will stop right here if they […]

The Silent Warrior – Out of the mouths of babes

This is my personal truth. When we learn to stay open to the input of the Universe, whilst staying focused on our goals, some pretty amazing things come our way.  This is how I found myself at the Suits and Sneakers event last Thursday night to be inspired to a new level of learning. As […]

The Silent Warrior – A letter of gratitude to you

This is my personal truth Dear Fellow Traveler I see you and I am in awe of you. I see you wake up some mornings, still exhausted.  Finding it so hard to remember your purpose, your drive.  Yet you keep going.  Your feet hit the floor, your legs carry you to the kitchen, you make […]

The Silent Warrior – Committing to the Destination

This is my personal truth. Commitment – The act of binding yourself (intellectually or emotionally) to a course of action. I have reached a stage in my life where I make very few commitments.  That is because I’ve made a decision along the way that my commitments are non-negotiable.  And that has a huge impact […]

The Silent Warrior – It’s Time For War!

There are few things as powerful as the right mantra!  Nothing changes your energy and focus as fast as saying the right words with feeling – charging up your body with electric energy and enabling you to access the deep regions of the brain where your true creativity and power lies. Join me for the […]

The Silent Warrior – Setting Course

This is my personal truth. There is no lack of knowledge in the world.  Anything that you could possibly want to know, you can find out with relative ease either through reading books, picking someone’s brain, or the most convenient option of the internet.  I find that most of the time there is in fact […]

Why on earth are you setting goals?

This is my personal truth. I find it fascinating how society keeps taking powerful tools and turning them into ways to keep the masses average.   One of the ways in which this is done is through information overload partnered by a lack of wisdom. Confused? Let me explain through example. Goals – we’ve all heard […]

The Silent Warrior – Finding your Big Why

This is my personal truth. Can you imagine going to war, preparing yourself to die, without understanding your purpose? Why would you keep fighting, even when you bleed, when the pain is ripping through your brain, when all seems lost and it would be so easy to just lie down and wait for it to […]
