Morning Walk in Glorious Takapuna

We have discovered since the plane trip that our body clocks have reset and we are waking up at 7am.  So we've decided to make the most of it by starting every day (that we can) with a 40 minute walk past the beach in Takapuna.  So far so good.

The Result Of Conscious Choices. The proof is in the pudding!

Hi there!

Monique from GET A LIFE here. Just wanted to share my new passport photos with you and yes - the proof really is in the pudding.  It's amazing for me to see the difference between the 2 photos and I got such a surprise today when I compared them!  I almost don't recognise the person I used to be and it's all a result of conscious choices I have made in my life!

The picture on the left was taken in 2007 when I was still going through the Depression experience and was weighing in at around the 82-84 kilo mark.  My diet consisted of Hamburgers, chips, chocolate, bread, biscuits and lots of comfort food - AND at least a couple of litres a day of Diet Coke.

The Millennials vs. The Baby Boomers

I found these 2 approaches to The Millennials vs. The Baby Boomers.  

Apparently The baby boomers stuffed up jobs, the planet, the global financial crisis, a couple of nasty wars and outsourcing of America's jobs and the shutdown of the American manufacturing industry while living on the pigs back and being quite prosperous.  All this means that their kids are having a rough time of it with climbing student loan debt, lack of job options and a lower overall rating of happiness in their lives.

Become The Coach Of Your Own Life

Hi there! It's Monique Bradley from GET A LIFE™.

GET A LIFE™ was designed by Pete Ward and myself after many people approached us asking why we were so happy and how we achieved it!  The answer was simple. We both made significant changes in our lives through conscious choices, examining the consequences and reviewing the effects of those choices.  The results have been amazing!  We've both lost weight, changed our appearances, moved away from work we didn't love and no longer served us and now help people become the COACH of their own lives - just like we did!

The mission statement behind GET A LIFE™ is based on a flow chart that looks like this one on the right:IMG 1104

7 Signs You're Dating The Right Person

Here's a great post from Sandy Weiner over at Huffington Post on the idea that if you are struggling with some compatibilities then maybe you need to re-evaluate what is going on in your life.

If you are constantly grated by their comments in public, maybe you have different eating habits or hobbies that keep you apart or simply you may find yourself spending more time apart than together, is that what you were looking for?

I thought it was a great read with some very valid options to consider such as Temperament, Intimacy, Communication Style, Financial and more....

The easiest way to wealth in my opinion is to know WHO YOU ARE and what makes you tick.

Greetings to you friends! Monique Bradley here from Get A Life and I am - according to Wealth Dynamics - A STAR.

Now people who know me well often go 'Duh' and roll their eyes as I've been a performer and entertainer since a very young age. However, being a performer or
brand ambassador for products is actually part of my 'Wealth Dynamics Profile' - meaning that if I focus on roles that suit my profile, it never feels like work and money flows easily.

Seems too good to be true huh? Actually, it's just good! The beauty of knowing WHO I am means I focus only on jobs that are now my field of expertise and I delegate the stuff which is not. Sure, I'm great at lots of things but some things come easier than others.

Serendipity and following the signs…

Im a believer in Serendipity and for those of you familiar with the Universal Law Of Attraction - Like attracts like.

Ever wondered about the science behind this statement?

According to Quantum Physics, on a molecular level we are all buzzing protons, neutrons and electrons that emit an electro magnetic charge. If the Law Of Attraction is correct, you attract what you are. Think about it. According to this law, the world around you is an outward reflection or a mirror of that which you are emitting. Do you like what you see OR would you like to make a change? The answer is simple - The change starts with you.

I thrive on floating from serendipitous moment to serendipitous moment as I endeavour to live constantly in a place of peace, joy and happiness and have the most amazing encounters. I saw it happen some months back where people suggested that I should meet a particular celebrity as we would get along famously, to which I replied 'When the time is right, our paths would cross…' And they did. Extraordinary circumstances where we happened to be in the same place at the same time, not just once but several times! Of course, I didn't just 'send it out there to the Universe' - I emitted the thought and took inspired action to be out and about to help Serendipity play it's part.

Another recent alliance happened as I have been working on my business in the field of transformational change. My goal is to help as many people as I can, educating them about the power of conscious choice and Joy Triggers. I was even considering going back to study, looking at a degree in counselling or psychology to really activate the teaching work I'm already doing using peoples language to decipher their inner story- and help them write a new one!  (Read more after the jump)

Healthy Insides - The Key To A Healthy Outside!

Hi there! It's Monique Bradley here!  Having grown up with a Father who was a homeopath and naturopath, I understand the value of everything we ingest as food, drinks and medicines.  Yes folks - having healthy insides, I believe is the key to having healthy outsides!  It's a no brainer really...I mean - look at all the data that has been released regarding the effects of processed foods, chemicals, colourings and additives that affect the behaviour of children for example!  It makes my mind swirl! 

Well it just so happens that another dear kindred of mine is trying to make a difference: Introducing Shannon Simpson - Creator of Nana Annes Home Remedies!!

Hi there!  It's Monique Bradley from GET A LIFE here.

In the immortal words of 80's band The Boomtown Rats 'Tell me why I don't like Mondays....'  As a person with a rather public profession, I never normally suffer from the effects of Monday-itis as my weekends are normally filled with work as a performer, working on an event, coaching, singing or writing. I live, eat, sleep, breathe my passion which gives me energy, drive and excitement to keep going!  I truly feel like I'm in flow all the time - I do what I love and I love what I do!  

While I still had events through the weekend, I took an obligatory rest period like a NORMAL person - however I question who defined normal? I noticed I got a bit be-jiggity as my active brain was saying 'go go go' but my physical body was saying 'rest' so I listened and rested. I do understand the value of rest but when I'm in flow, I personally just like to ride that wave!

Today I got up, feeling like I had achieved nothing and that it was a drag to get out of bed. The day was grey and my normal sunshine demeanour was summed up with a 'GRRR'.  WOW - where did I go?

Macarons At High Noon

The lovely Sunita Martin make amazing macarons, some of which are nut free by the way, and she delivered them to me at our High Tea and instructed me to taste test the goods.  Well who am I to turn down a good sugar rush?

I duly sampled and appraised the 6 flavours and found a firm favourite.

Challenge Accepted

Becoming A Winner Part 10 - Finding your life path and Andy Warhol.

Hi there!  It's Monique Bradley from GET A LIFE.

It has become increasingly more obvious to me as I'm working with my coaching and clarity clients that many people feel like they're not following their life path - hence, they feel like a big fat LOSER.....Know the feeling?  To be honest, I've known it well and considering I am an intuitive worker as well, there have been many times that I have consulted other intuitives, clairvoyants, mediums and the like outside of my own experience for clarity.  Some have been great......and some have been crack pots, giving me no actual advice or clarity other than reading my thoughts and confirming what I already know. Waste of time really when I could have just trusted MY OWN INNER GUIDANCE SYSTEM! (I just somehow got a little disconnected...)

Andy Warhol is a funny character. I have listened to my partner Pete quote him several times and delighted in the stories. Andy Warhol was a creative, eccentric genius espousing statements such as: 

“Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
