26 pieces of wisdom that many people take a lifetime to learn

  1. It’s not life that’s tiring, it’s wanting life to be in a certain way but not having the confidence to change it that sucks away your energy.
  2. Life is short; time is precious.
  3. What you own is not who YOU are.
  4. Live for today, not for tomorrow.
  5. Being busy does NOT mean you are being productive.
  6. No matter how much you polish a window, the smear is always on the other side.
  7. No matter how carefully you close an icing sugar bag, it will still “puff” everywhere.
  8. Thinking and doing are two very different things.
  9. Change happens every second, like it or not.
  10. Failure is not when something doesn’t work out the way you wanted, it’s when you don’t even try.
  11. Some form of failure will always occur before you find success.
  12. Feeling sad after making a decision does not mean the decision was wrong.
  13. Overthinking kills happiness.
  14. Don’t constantly look back, there’s nothing there for you anymore.
  15. Self-awareness is having the understanding that there’s no opponent; you are only fighting against yourself.
  16. You are usually doing enough even if it doesn’t feel like it.
  17. Sometimes saying ‘goodbye’ doesn’t mean you don’t love something; it just means you love yourself more.
  18. People come and go, but the right ones stay.
  19. It’s not other people’s job to love you; it’s yours.
  20. Random acts of kindness make everyone feel better.
  21. You don’t have to wait for an apology to offer forgiveness.
  22. Words are powerful, use them wisely.
  23. Life lessons will keep on repeating themselves until you learn.
  24. If you try to hold on to the past and grab hold of the future, your hands will be too full to have either. To embrace tomorrow, you must let go of yesterday.
  25. Your only limitations are what is created in your mind.
  26. You will only ever live the life you create for yourself.

Your world starts and ends entirely inside your mind. No matter where you come from or where you end up – no matter how rich, famous, or successful you become – if you are not HAPPY, you will not enjoy your life.

I help clients move beyond the crossroads that has kept them trapped in a world that enclosed around them and they leave feeling liberated. They know which path to take next that will make them truly happy. Freed from limiting beliefs that have held them back from chasing their dreams, they have a step-by-step structured approach on how to reach their goals. More importantly, they have all the tools and mindset to make their dream goals into a reality. Imagine a life without limits – that’s what Mapleleaf Vision clients achieve.

I first worked with Will whilst I was a junior member of a teaching team. I worked closely with him for around three years and he became a true mentor to me. During this time Will helped encourage me to discover my own leadership style and he mapped out what it takes to be successful. I highly recommend Will for life and career coaching.

Will is a professional, natural leader who manages to make you feel at ease. He manages to be both emphatic and encouraging, whilst also managing to challenge you to find your own answers. Will’s approach is totally non-judgmental and the sessions are really focused on you and on what you want to achieve. Working with Will has allowed me to address challenges I was facing and he brought a wealth of resources and practical tools to help me set goals, clarify my values, and explore avenues right away. Even though I left teaching 5 years ago, I still seek out Will for his help and guidance and I appreciate his versatility as a thought partner, ally, and coach. Our sessions are always productive and efficiently run, which is perfect for someone who is juggling many priorities! Will brings great communication, professionalism and quality to his work and I highly recommend him as a life/business coach.

Will at Mapleleaf vision fitted me in for a last minute decision-making session that I needed to make ASAP re. a job offer / career change. He was friendly, professional, and really knew his stuff! He unpicked things that I could never have done on my own. I’m so grateful to him & will be highly recommending him to everyone! Where there is a ‘Will’, there’s a way! Thank you, Will. You truly have a gift.
