TOTAL SUCCESS: Achieving the unimagined

Dear <<First Name>>,

My newsletter for April is a little later than usual, but I wanted to wait and write after I had attended Total Success with Tony Robbins in Sydney. I knew I would learn a great deal and come away with some gems I would want to share with you. If you have not had the opportunity to experience Tony Robbins live then I highly recommend it, it was so amazing. Tony is the ultimate coach, he has such clarity and power in his messages, and the way he delivers is inspiring and motivating. In the photo above you see me there with my business and coach mentor Gayle, an amazing woman who I am so grateful to be working with who also inspires me to be the best coach I can be.

So what do I want to pass on from this experience to you? To be honest it is very difficult to express in a few sentences. There is a summary youtube video of the Melbourne event which gives you some idea if you are interested. Tony said that "the only thing that can hurt you is a limiting belief you have not questioned or investigated... your biography is not your destiny... smash your conditioning and decide you MUST have a magnificent life." His passion and messages are very similar to mine, and here are some other points to consider:
  • seek mentors and be inspired by those who have succeeded in what you want to achieve, learn from them but more importantly take massive action on what you have learnt
  • pay it forward and share your own learnings and experiences, remember that there are always others who can benefit from your gained wisdom too
  • strive to consistently ask yourself quality questions, for instance what could you be proud of, grateful for or excited by in your life? Nothing you achieve matters if you don't feel fulfilled, know what an extraordinary life truly means to you.
One of Tony's coaches talked about decision making and said "you can't do everything but you can do anything". When you wake up in the morning and start considering your day, ask important value based questions with the intention of using precious resources on what really matters, where am I going to allocate my time, what am I going to spend my financial resources on, and where is my focus? In moments of decision your destiny is shaped, we only make 50-60 decisions a day so make them worthy of your best life.

I invite you to consider who are your mentors, how do you give back, and what quality questions and decisions are you engaging on on a day to day basis?

I also wanted to update you on my running, I completed my first race in the 2016 Australian Running Festival, see my facebook post for photos and details. I am very excited that my daughter has suggested we do the race together next year, and has been enjoying running herself, this month we trained together for the schools cross-country. What a wonderful experience that has been, that's a note that's been added to the Gratitude Jar!

Love and light,

Diamond Belief Statements for April
For those of you who have completed PSYCH-K® training I had the idea to add a segment on diamond belief statements that I have balanced for myself this month, and if they resonate with you go ahead and balance for them for yourself! If you haven't completed PSYCH-K® training but you still love the idea of these belief statements being 100% true for you then just let me know, I can easily facilitate that for you.

One morning this month I spent some time focusing on my language, a favourite motto is "be impeccable with your word" and I have really noticed the benefit of these particular belief statements:
  • I own the power of the word
  • I only speak of that which I wish to be true for me
  • I only speak in positively affirming ways
  • Every thought, attitude and belief is empowering me to live the life I want.
I love this photo my sister took at the start of the Australian Running Festival. You can see me at the back celebrating a "woohoo" moment!

This photo depicts exactly how I feel when I have created the beliefs that empower and support the goals I want to achieve, and then find myself doing them through committing to action as a result. The feeling of inner pride when you achieve something you have been working towards is priceless and worth celebrating with excitement!

If you are like me, I love combining celebration with great food! The following healthy cake recipe is so awesome, worthy of great celebrations.

Grain-free Apple Spice Coffee Cake (SCD and Paleo)

AUTHOR: Danielle Walker -

For the cake

2-1/2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup honey, liquified
3 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 pound gala apples (peeled, cored, and coarsely chopped)
1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the cinnamon swirl

1 tablespoon cinnamon
1-1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
2 tablespoons honey

For the glaze

1 tablespoon coconut oil, softened but not melted
1/2 tablespoon unfiltered apple juice
1 tablespoon raw honey, in its solid state
2 tablespoons coconut cream (the solid fat that rises to the top of a can of coconut milk)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place a round piece of parchment paper at the bottom of a round cake pan, then lightly oil all sides with a little coconut oil.
  3. Toss together the apples and lemon juice. Set aside.
  4. Mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cardamom, and salt in a medium sized bowl.
  5. Mix the coconut oil, eggs, honey, and vanilla in another small bowl, then incorporate the wet into the dry ingredients.
  6. Fold in the apple mixture, then spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Use a spatula to spread it into an even layer. The batter will be pretty thick.
  7. Mix the cinnamon swirl ingredients in a small bowl, then drizzle around the cake. Use a toothpick or a skewer to drag the mixture around and make swirly patterns in the batter.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Cool on a wire rack, then use a knife to loosen the sides from the pan. Invert the cake onto the rack and peel off the parchment paper.
  10. Flip the cake so it’s right-side-up, and continue cooling either on the rack or by placing in the refrigerator.
  11. Mix together all of your glaze ingredients in a blender or small food processor. If it’s a little too runny, place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to thicken it up a bit.
  12. Drizzle over the cake, then serve immediately or store in the fridge for 1-2 days.
