I am being interviewed today on LBC Radio with John Stapleton discussing a new study that is fascinating but not really surprising – well not to me anyway…. that Mums who set high standards for their girls influence them the most and their girls achieve their true potential.

Achieving your true potential is personal, it’s unique and it can lead to your life’s purpose. Having goals, writing them down and taking small steps consistently towards them ( regardless of setbacks ) is what it takes and Mums often provide that nurturing, supportive, motivating force that leads to girls doing for themselves eventually.

This is why I wrote and recorded “Living The Dream” a CD to inspire and help young people focus on what they are good at, what they enjoy, what they’d like to do for a living and what sort of life they’d like to create.

Living The Dream

When teenagers start taking completely responsibility for their lives, they take a giant step from being a child to being an adult.

Like the rest of us, the more teenagers accept responsibility, the more they are in control of their lives and the more confident they feel, and deciding what they want and working to achieve it is a key component to being a responsible, happy and fulfilled adult.

In this CD I help teenagers to create the best sort of life that they will really love, get excited by, and truly enjoy. An incredibly positive, well lived life, full of wonderful opportunities and great memories.

A fantastic life that they can create easily and effortlessly just through relaxing regularly, listening to this toolkit often, and letting their imagination transform their life into enormous opportunities, great experiences, and magical moments – the life they truly deserve and can personally choose.

If you are struggling to communicate with your teenager regardless of whether they are a boy or a girl here’s my very popular “Navigating The Choppy Waters Of The Teenage Years” CD
