Here are some of the most common questions that people ask me, while they’re deciding whether to join in with this programme.
“I don’t have enough time to do this!”
Not having enough time is the #1
excuse (sorry, truly legitimate reason!) I hear from people about why they can’t change their lives.
Firstly, we tackle this, head-on, in one of your bonus trainings.
Secondly, do you really think that the ‘future you’ on your 80th birthday will look back and say “Hell yeah! I’m so glad you didn’t bother changing your life because the ironing was so much more important!”???
“What if it doesn’t work for me?”
I know that this stuff works – and I know it will work for you, if you simply go and use it! But I also know how it feels to start a programme and feel unsure or confused – and that’s ok.
It’s one of the reasons why I share the bonus “How To Change Your Life – Kick Start” training with you, right when we get started with the main programme.
It’s the difference that makes the difference.
And, if your heart genuinely tells you this isn’t a good fit for you, once we’ve started, then that’s why I offer my “Love It!” guarantee.
How does How To Be Happy create lasting change?
We don’t mess around with the sticky plaster stuff (Band Aids, I think, in the USA?). We dive right in and deal with the underlying causes. And it doesn’t have to hurt and it doesn’t have to be scary.
“But I’m scared of changing! Won’t my life fall apart?”
I know that change can feel scary – believe me – I’ve been there.
That’s one of the reasons why it is so important to me that I only share the depth of techniques we’ll be using in the How To Be Happy course in an environment where you have the chance to get moral support, if you need it (via the private group forum) – and it’s why you’ll never find them just hanging around in a book. This stuff really works – and I want to make it as easy as possible for you – and that’s why it’s really important that we get to connect, rather than me leaving you on your own.
We have the private online community, where you can share your experiences (both great and otherwise!) and get moral support.
Isn’t this stuff just a load of ‘woo woo’?
My inner engineer chuckles over this one. She has lost count of the number of times she has thrown this question back at me. In fact, my original degree was a Masters in Mechanical Engineering and German and the first decade of my career was in senior engineering positions and then as Head of Market Research for an international brand – so I know about practical, strategic, insightful common sense solutions.
On the other hand, my inner ‘soul self’ also knows that there is more to life than purely observable science. And if I didn’t share the more subtle stuff with you, I’d be doing you a disservice. So rest assured, I’ll be bringing you everything that you need – but in a way that’s easy for you to take on board and enjoy, without having to pop off to your 29th Chakra for a month of japa meditation, unless you really want to. 🙂
“Do I have to take on a new religion or belief system?”
In fact, the primary focus of my work is to help people let go of the old beliefs that were holding them back – wherever these came from.
With everything I share with you, all I ask is that you try it on for size, with an open mind, and if it fits, great. Take it and use it to change your life. If it doesn’t, and you can’t tweak it to fit, that’s cool too.
“What will it feel like, as I work through the programme?”
The 6 weeks (and beyond!) will feel different for everyone, but there are some common themes.
Sometimes the module will be easy for you, because it’s just refining what you’re already doing.
Other times it might be more of a challenge, as you let go of an old behaviour or release an old block and take on new habits. Comfort zones will get stretched. You will be re-training your mind – both the conscious ‘Monkey Mind’ and also your ‘unconscious mind’ – the bit that’s really running the show.
Take all of this at your own speed. Dive in as deeply as you can – but know that the materials will still be there for you, if you want to repeat a module in the future to get even more from it.
By the end of the 3 months, if you have worked through the modules, you will feel happier, calmer, more open-hearted, less stressed, more grounded and centred and life will flow more easily.
“Do I have to join in with the private online community?”
No, of course you don’t! It’s entirely up to you!
However, I’ll be spending quite a lot of time hanging out there, so it’s a great way to get answers to your questions. Also sharing the journey is much more fun than just doing it on your own and you’ll find the community is full of lovely people, on a similar journey to you. So I do really recommend joining in.
It is a private closed group on Facebook (Google can’t see inside it), so your privacy is safe.
“I hate the word ‘happy’!”
I know what you mean 🙂 I hear this one quite often. It turns out that lots of us have got what I call ‘happiness baggage’.
Whatever the reason, the words ‘happy’ or ‘joy’ can rile some people. For others, concentrating on the feeling of lightening the area around your heart works better – but for some people that’s an empty word. Some people prefer phrases like, “I feel good about… such-and-such.” There are so many choices – what is key is connecting with the feeling in your heart, rather than the word in your head.
Why isn’t it free?
Firstly – I operate a Conscious Pricing policy, so I NEVER exclude anyone on the basis of abiltiy to pay. However, there DOES need to be an energy exchange, for this stuff to work.
I’ve often had people ask my why I don’t get myself a ‘day job’ and do this stuff for free in the evenings.
Well, I hate to break it to you, but this work IS my day job. I spend waaay too many hours each week at ‘work’ – either creating free articles or free videos or free courses or giving free mini-mentoring to my readers, via Facebook and website comments – and then I do my ‘homework’.
Staying at the top of my game means I am pretty much constantly learning and changing – and experimenting.
Over the past 25 years, I have invested many tens of thousands in formal courses, I have read 1,000+ personal development and business books, I have worked on myself for many, many thousands of hours and that doesn’t stop now, just because I’m teaching. In fact, teaching means I have to practice and refine my techniques even more, to make sure I’m dealing with my personal blocks and assumptions – to get ‘me’ out of the way and to let YOU take centre stage.
I took the leap to make inpsiring people to step into their Soul-Shoes, full time, over a decade ago. I could have spent the past decade continuing with the very highly-paid career I had in Market Research, but then none of what you know and love from Soul-Sized Living would have ever been created.
In the How To Be Happy course, I have distilled total gems from my last 25 years of studying and my past decade or more of teaching and mentoring – all combined in a gorgeously simple method for you to learn, grow and step into your Soul-Shoes.
I’m really hoping that you’re ok with me asking for an energy exchange for all of that.
I’m not sure if I want to do this? How can I decide?”
Only you can make this choice – I’m not going to try to persuade you. It has to resonate for you. And if you’re feeling unsure, here are two simple techniques you could try, to find out whether joining in with How To Be Happy is the intuitive next step for you:
- Try out the 80th birthday test and let me know which way you decide to go. Here’s a short video to walk you through the process.
- Flip a coin! Heads you join in. Tails you don’t.
Which side does it land on? How do you feel about going with that choice? Let your body show you the way.
And remember: you’ve got my Love It! Guarantee – so you’ve got nothing to lose and a lifetime of happiness to gain 🙂
By the way, if either of those ideas was too ‘woo woo’ for you, then the way I teach probably isn’t for you. Just wanted to warn you! xx
