Positive mindset the key to success

Posted: 7am 03 Sep 2020

Anky Balfoort is passionate about helping people overcome struggles and challenges.

The Albany Creek life coach has been named as a finalist in the Leadership category of the AusMumpreneur Awards, presented by The Women’s Business School. The awards recognise women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.

“It was such a thrill to even be nominated, so being a finalist is very exciting,” Anky says.

She made the transition to life coaching about 15 years ago after working for many years in the corporate world, including in project and change management, launching Cohesive Coaching.

Positive mindset

“Life coaching is about helping people move forward and create a more positive mindset,” Anky explains.

“I’ve worked with high-flying executives, people who have been through psychiatric trauma, people from all walks of life.

“Some feel completely lost and without direction and don’t know where to start – I come to it from a very practical point of view.”

Take control

Anky says many people are feeling more anxious as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the loss of a sense of control can be extremely debilitating.

“A lot of people are feeling powerless,” she says.

“One thing I would suggest to people is to look for a different perspective, to become aware of the things they can influence and control.

“Starting to enjoy positive things and focusing on the positive can really help.

“It can be as simple as patting your dog or cat, or admiring a beautiful view.

“Then you have influence and that can help you feel more in control.”

The winners of the AusMumpreneur Awards are announced on September 9.
