Monique's Delicious Balls

Well, I'm not too prudish to openly admit that I love Balls. Now keep it clean Cherubs.....

Growing up in a foodie household (my mother is a Cooking Teacher and my dream was to grow up to be Alison Holst), I have a LOVE of food. However, I'm also domestically challenged.  It's taken me 3 months to work out how to poach eggs, so anything that's easy to make wins my vote.

I'm also a fan (having lost over half my body weight in excess fat, gaining part of it again, losing it again, gaining it, losing it....well you get the idea....) of trying to find healthy alternatives that serve my health, help me maintain a healthy weight and most importantly, TASTE GREAT! There's nothing worse than having to eat something that you KNOW is going to be good for you but tastes like the bottom of a rabbit hutch.

Success Story - The Power Of Conscious Choice - Avalons Story

AvalonThis is Avalon: an amazing singer, conservationist, house vice captain, great friend and kind hearted soul.

I first met Avalon in Browns Bay on Aucklands North Shore when I was singing on stage during their local market day. Singing is one of my passions - something I started at the age of 4 years old, began professional training at the age of 11 and have used as one of my JOY TRIGGERS. It's helped my confidence and self esteem and I always get a beautiful buzz when I perform a song that people love!

As I looked out into the crowd, I saw a beautiful young lady smiling - and I nearly had an out of body experience! I could have sworn it was me as a child looking up at ME on stage. I got chatting with Avalon and mum Tracie (also a talented singer) and they asked about singing lessons. At the time, I said no, however this sweet wee girl stuck in my mind and some weeks later, I was back in Browns Bay singing again. This time I decided to take her on board and see if we could develop her voice and confidence as a singer.

Success Story - The power of personal empowerment sessions!

Hi there! Monique Bradley here and I'm delighted to be sharing with you a fantastic success story.

This is the story of someone I've done a little bit of coaching with - his name is Jimin Hwang.

I met him at a local business association meeting in our local area. On chatting with him, I learnt that he was shy but had a desire to connect with people. Some weeks later, he published a post about his life growing up and was honest about the fact that he was born with physical developmental problems, which led to social alienation and bullying. As a teen, he felt like an outsider, ran away from home and basically did not want to live.

With the 'everydayness' of life bombarding us with stress and pressures, we often lose the connection to our inner guidance system that can helps guide us significantly on our journey. Whether we strike a friendship with that person we instantly had a bad hunch about, which turns into a nightmare or we take on a job that didn't quite fit right at the interview that turns into more stress than it's worth - well, we've all been there!

Connecting back to our intuitive response can be a big step in the right direction to taking a big step in the right direction! Instead of look for aproval externally, consider getting aproval INTERNALLY and see what happens!

Finding Happy Affirmation Cards are NOW available!

As an accompaniment to the GET A LIFE 'write your new story' process, Monique has been in production creating a range of powerful affirmation cards that are heavily loaded with the correct language choices to help activate and support change in your life.


Affirmations are positive statements or self-scripts that can condition the subconscious mind to help you develop a more positive perception of yourself. Affirmations can help you to change harmful behaviors or accomplish goals, and they can also help undo the damage caused by negative scripts, those things which we repeatedly tell ourselves (or which others repeatedly tell us) that contribute to a negative self-perception.

Finding Happy - Letting Go Of Grief

Hi there! Monique Bradley here with this weeks VLOG: Letting Go Of Grief.

This weeks topic is: 'Release. Have a good cry. Grief is a doorway to your deepest self.'

Many of the people I work alongside, coach or train are held back by an old self belief or some form of grief at the loss of a loved one, a decision that resulted in less than favourable consequences or a lost opportunity. I know from my own experience of losing my father when I was 18 that grief affects us in a variety of different ways. For me at the time my coping mechanism was comedy. I didn't know how to process people's messages of sympathy so would often reply with a comedic response to lighten their own depth of despair or to lighten mine.
