    You can’t have confidence without risking looking like a fool

    1024 576 Lisa Steingold

    I was asked to speak at an event yesterday on “self confidence”. When asked to speak on the subject, I confess my heart sank somewhat. I don’t believe I possess such a luxury and I’m always loathe, if not vehemently against speaking, or writing, on topics I know nothing about…

    What’s your story? My virtual coffee with Mnotho Mtshali

    150 150 Lisa Steingold

    You know I have to say that listening to all the voices in my head can get somewhat tiring. In addition I have to say that it’s often someone else’s perspective on life that shifts my own or just opens my eyes to something new. There are a few people I “follow” on LinkedIn and in the real world who’s views have really piqued my interest. One of these such people is Mnotho Mtshali. Mnotho works for Unilever in their Southern Africa division and lived in London town when I spent time there too in 2018…

    The world is f’kd – or is it?

    1024 489 Lisa Steingold

    I titled this piece as such because it sometimes feels to me that the current general ‘sentiment’ (given my experience living in South Africa, the UK and Spain) is TWIF (the world is … – fill in the dots). Is it though? I’m not so sure….

    Don’t chase your dreams

    800 867 Lisa Steingold

    I do realise that what I’m about to say is contrary to much of the current #LiveYourBestLife social narrative. I also realise that each of us have to follow our own path so listen, or read, to what resonates with you and ditch the rest…

    You’ve changed

    929 765 Lisa Steingold

    I’ve got some (bad?) news for you; you’ve changed. Yup, you and I have changed.

    We’re not the same people we were two years ago, maybe even two months ago. I realised this when reading my latest brilliant read “The Fearless Monkey” by Dennis Heijn…

    What’s your time worth?

    800 450 Lisa Steingold

    I was thinking about Theresa May yesterday; not in the “I wonder if she wants to be my friend” kind of way but more in a “I wonder if it’s worth it” kind of way. Let me clarify from the outset of this post that I wish to make no reference to her political choices besides I think she’s had her fair share of grilling of late in the #Brexittales.

    Is age just a number and what do you want to eat?

    549 340 Lisa Steingold

    Who says that age is a number that defines us?
    I’ll put this all in some kind of context with another confession. I turned 40 in December. It’s not (yet) an event I’m embracing. In fact, internally there’s more a kind of absolute refusal to embrace the number much like a horse’s stubborn refusal to drink water despite being taken to the trough.

    Everything MUST go!

    1 1 Lisa Steingold

    I wrote this blog in my head this morning as I felt my thighs attempt to escape through my lycra yoga tights on what I’d call a waddle around my neighbourhood. It wasn’t a run because running is that thing that people who breeze me, with smiles on their faces do. It wasn’t a walk because the red flashing sign on my Garmin told me so. Nope it was a waddle. I wasn’t happy about it but it just had to be done because it falls into the category of an authentic intention in my life and authentic intentions must be followed…

    Why is life hard for me?

    150 150 Lisa Steingold

    In my last blog I wrote about the magic pill called truth and this week I’m going to expand a little more on the concept. Here’s a hard truth; life gets hard because we make it hard. Before you start writing foul mouthed mails to me, let me explain.

    The Magic Pill

    150 150 Lisa Steingold

    The Magic Pill Everyone wants a magic pill; myself included. My whole life I’ve been looking for “the magic pill” – the one that helps you create the life you want, grows your business, rids you of obstacles and that creates miracles. In the  past nine months of my life, the toughest I can remember,…
