“How do you eat an elephant?”
It’s a strange phrase yet the answer is wise.
“One bite at a time.”
Everything starts with ONE step.
I remember my university days in Lismore which were full of fun.
One of my flatmates Trina had a busy schedule juggling full-time Uni and a part-time job, so her bedroom became a little out of hand and one day she had set her mind to do some cleaning and tidying in her room.
During the process, she ran upstairs full of excitement and announced…
“I know how to do it!! I have the answer! You’re NOT going to believe this!! Do you want to know how to clean up? Are you ready for this?!?
“SECTIONS!! You do it in SECTIONS!”
She explained how the thought of conquering the entire room was way too overwhelming so she cleverly figured out a step by step plan.
Trina continued, “I started in one corner and only focussed there and finished that part before I started a new SECTION.”
This light bulb moment was unforgettable for a few reasons. Firstly, because Trina was hilarious in general so this was a fun moment and profound discovery. She explained it in her usual gorgeous way and we were all so happy at the new found information.
As eighteen-year-olds, we were still figuring these things out whilst we lived away from home and it was a magnificent revelation that actually WORKED!
It was unforgettable because of how TRUE it was.
In your own life, remember whatever you are facing, you can always tackle it Trina – style, in sections, in steps, in bite-sized pieces. The whole mountain is too hard, too big and too much.
If you’d like to lose 50kgs, it’s too intense to think about. What if you start with one? Then another…
If you’d like to learn a repertoire of thirty songs yet keep forgetting lyrics, nail one. Then the second one…
If your garage is jam-packed with stuff and the thought of cleaning it out is unbearable, give it thirty minutes of attention. Then repeat. Then repeat…
You can kill procrastination by STARTING with one step, Trina style – in SECTIONS.
Don’t try and write the whole book in a day. Remember Trina cleaning her room? She was entirely successful with her wise method.
You can be too, and this applies across the board.
Debts to pay? Just START with one payment.
Move away from the debilitating “all or nothing” thinking because EVERY step counts.
My friend, don’t ever despise small beginnings.

Finally the YOU HAVE A VOICE ACADEMY signature course is beyond exciting. We will begin in MAY and this is a complete and total game changer. Full stop. Highly recommended! I cannot encourage you enough to register. A quick clarification: some people have shown confusion, thinking that you need to be a professional singer to do the course. The truth is, this course is not for everyone. It’s for anyone who would like to transform ALL areas of their life and achieve one main goal this year. It’s for anyone who knows there’s more and is finally willing to say YES to all that is possible.
It’s your time. Back yourself and win.
Understand that the POWER of a coach, a community and a curriculum is your secret weapon. You’ve got nothing to lose!
