When you wake up and see yourself on the Big Screen at GoPro.
I have visualised myself speaking on stage impacting the masses at GoPro, for a very long time.
Every morning I close my eyes and visualise my life as it will be, including that one year when I am backstage being greeted by Eric and Marina Worre, and then walking on stage and pouring everything I have inside of me to help others step into their power.
I have the most incredible sponsor and mentor.
She knows this.
And this is her way of showing me what’s possible.

Oh the "what ifs...." They suck the joy from our lives. They stop us from experiencing the present moment. 😕 It's so easy to worry about the future. 😄 But how about, instead, you imagine the best that could happen? The best case scenario? What would you feel? See? Do? Hear? Smell? 🔦 Changing what you put your focus on will change your experience of life.
Have a fantastilicious weekend! (Quote by Erin Hansen)
If only one person is vulnerable, and the other person sits on the sidelines, genuine connection can’t happen.
Vulnerability has to be two-sided in order for relationships to deepen.
Some of us are good sharers.
Some of us are good listeners.
And some of us can delicately balance the art of sharing and listening that leads to beautiful connections.
We may have grown up in an environment where we were encouraged to “perform” or perhaps were praised for being a “quiet” child.
Some of those childhood roles can actually prevent us from genuinely connecting once we enter adult relationships.
We want to cultivate the skills to become good at offering vulnerability and to also become good receivers of it.
We want to be able to hear our partner’s vulnerability and to be able to meet them with our own.
That’s why I don’t suggest to continue being vulnerable with people that don’t respond with their own.
It becomes a very unbalanced dynamic.
But what we can absolutely do in those moments is be a loving invitation for it and see how it is responded to.
Here are some suggestions:
In the earlier dating:
“I’ve shared some personal things with you. I’d really love to know a little more about you if you’re willing to share.”
During a long-term relationship:
“I’ve been a bit more vulnerable with you lately. I’m really enjoying it and it makes me feel closer to you. It would be wonderful if you’d share some of your inner process with me .. like what you’re thinking and feeling. I know that might feel strange for you .. but it would mean a lot to me.”
We can sometimes shift the dynamic of vulnerability if we have a willing participant.
We can share what we need to feel connected without shaming our partner.
Sometimes our partner doesn’t realize they aren’t sharing and really does want to feel closer.
And if we are the sharers, we need to make enough space for someone to give us parts of their inner world without taking over.
If we are the one who tends to be on the sidelines of vulnerability, we don’t need to always wait for an invitation.
Sometimes we need to dive in on our own and trust that we’ll know if we’re not welcome. #coachingwithsilvy
Wanting to be anything but second best requires an ability to recognise that even the best has flaws and faults.
Not every picture will always be perfect. Not every thing you do will always be great. Not every mood will always be special. Not every word will be saintly. Not every glance will be well received. Don’t be so hard on yourself for not having the perfect smile or best outfit, the best looks or the biggest talent in your eyes. Never hurt yourself being braver than you truly are trying to impress those that make you feel small. They will always be better than you in your minds eye, but will that make you feel better about yourself trying to out do them at something you will never appear to win at?
Be sure that you aren’t trying too hard to be someone you are not. You have character, you have you. No one ever truly admirers characterless perfection. Be certain you are the best at not obsessing about being the best. Be yourself, and you will always be the best at doing something that makes you truly the best at what you do best - and who you are - in the eyes of those that truly matter, and those that want to matter to you.
On that note: one or two? Personally, I think the chimney’s slightly too far to the left in the second picture for my liking. Unfortunately, I never managed to frame it as well as I had hoped. To be honest my artistic eye would normally insist on deleting it as annoyingly neither Pige nor the break in the clouds wanted to cooperate with me that day. Odd that. 🤷🏼♂️ Maybe I need to think about bribes? 🤔
