This is a follow-up to the last video about the importance of vulnerability - because vulnerability comes with baggage.

Stronger leaders, inspiring parents

Claire John on Sat 5 Oct

Vulnerability is something that’s pretty fundamental to our well-being, our ability to deeply connect and inspire others.  The problem is, we’re living in a world where being vulnerable and being real feels really dangerous.   

If you want to change, improve, grow...look for difference

Claire John on Thu 3 Oct

If you’re working towards some sort of personal change or towards a particular goal, whether that’s getting fit, improving mental health or even getting a new job there’s a simple concept that can shape the results you get.

Simple but game-changing.

Can we have obedient rebels?

Obedience versus independent thinking in our kids...does it have to be either-or?

Dropping expectations doesn't mean ignoring your needs!

Claire John on Thu 5 Sep

So, did I manage to let go of "I've got to make the most of it" and the expectations that come with holidays and doing something special? Yes and No.  Here's what I learnt and what I believe is the secret to success/

It's not fair!

Claire John on Fri 19 Jul

It's really easy to become fixated on what everyone else is doing, having and achieving rather than focusing on the good stuff in our own lives.  So how can we quit the evil habit of comparing and despairing so we're all a whole lot happier?

Why I'm ignoring my perfectionist tendencies
