So many people think that their happiness is something that just happens to them and is outside of their control. This is very disempowering and also untrue. Your happiness is totally within your hands, and there are very specific strategies, tools and habits you can develop to become happier, healthier, more productive and successful in your life.
Happiness is not something ready made.
It comes from your own actions. – Dalai Lama
Of course there are many, many ways to increase your happiness and enjoyment of your life. Listen out for my top 3 simple and easy to implement strategies right here in this short 20 minute podcast episode.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. – Buddha
Here’s a quick summary of my tips…
Knowing your goal moment or your ideal perfect day are really important happiness strategies that help to align your unconscious mind with your desires and dreams. When you are aligned with your desires you will begin to notice possibilities and opportunities to create that ideal day and life.
Take your changes one at a time. Don’t overwhelm yourself with trying to change too much, just make one small change that you can stick to and build your belief that you can keep your promises to yourself. Start by thinking what that future ideal self would do and pick one habit to begin with.
Making choices with a mindset of self-love and gratitude is a massive and lasting happiness strategy. Being kind and compassionate with yourself will help you to be happier and more successful in all your endeavours. Ask yourself what is the most nourishing choice right now? Let your inner cheerleader cheer you on, or talk to yourself as you would a treasured friend.

I’ve passed the big 4-0! I’ve now ‘released’ 48kgs, since the birth of my son 2 years ago. To Kylie, Selina and all my GBQ sisters, you helped me to get out of my own way, so I could coach my inner critic and encourage my cheerleader. I am getting my pre-babies mojo back and am in a better headspace than when I was fighting fit! I feel like GBQ really delivered on the greatest gift, self-love and clarity, and has given me the confidence and conviction to continue my journey! Thank you.
With Kylie’s help I released the hopelessness & anger I was using as an excuse, and have stepped out of my shell with a vengeance! I’m now clear on what I want to do with my life and I’m taking steps towards making it a reality, and in doing so my entire eating habits have changed… the ‘hunger subsided’ & I’ve stuck to my better eating habits and gym workouts easily. It’s been amazing!
Working with Kylie has been life changing. Kylie helped me get back in touch with my own body, taught me how to nourish myself and get my glowing, gorgeous body. She helped me move from self-loathing to self-love. She taught me how to consciously turn down the critical voice and turn up my inner cheerleader. Without a doubt starting with your mindset is the first place to start on your weight loss journey. Lasting results for sure and totally life changing!
What I have gotten out of the course can’t be measured. I glow from the inside out! For the first time in years; I am happy because I am happy! I love myself – I can actually look in a mirror with no self loathing… I love the woman smiling back at me and not just because my body has changed on the outside – I have changed from the inside and it is a reflection!
Everything has really changed, I finally let the girl inside out. I feel like my life has really just started. I’ve had a massive increase in personal power (from zero), sense of possibility, happiness, resilience, CONFIDENCE! Reached my first weight loss goal, I have gone from a size 12 to an 8-10. I love myself and respect myself for the first time, I cannot express how much this has changed me. Thank you does not even cut it.
I have been struggling with my weight and feeling of not being good enough for as long as I can remember…This has changed for me now. I have had more awakenings and realisations and learnings than I thought possible in the past few months. This really is SOOOOO not about the weight. I TOTALLY get that now.
I have loads more energy… I’m eating so well and exercising when I can. With my 1st baby I couldn’t cope with the emotional roller-coaster that is pregnancy. I ate, and ate, and ate non-stop. My head is in such a great place at the moment. I owe it all to Kylie and your Goddess Body Quest program x
