Welcome to The Julia Matheson Blog:
the fear of failure
Failure is actually PART OF success. "We need to accept that we won't always make the right decisions, that we'll screw up royally sometimes - understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it's part of success."  - Arianna Huffington It sounds crazy I know, but when you look at all the wildly successful individuals in the world - Thomas Edison, Michael Jordan, Bill Gates -...

leaving a legacy
Every single one of us leaves a legacy. Your very existence has an impact on the world - whether you intend it or not. So, how do YOU want to be remembered? I was reminded of the notion of legacy powerfully last night, as my family attended the official opening of a building named in my late Aunty Sandra's honour. She had served most passionately for four decades at her workplace... Read More »
play to your strengths
You will excel only by maximising your strengths, never by fixing your weaknesses. You don't have to stick your head in the sand about what may need improving, but the point is not to FOCUS on it. Weakness fixing is damage control not development. Damage control can prevent failure, but it will never elevate you to excellence. Strengths work is often a foreign concept for a lot... Read More »
the expectation blame-game
Birthdays have a similar effect on me as New Years Eve. For me, they are these huge "time" reminders telling me that I'm another year older. My mind automatically goes into stocktake mode and wants to review and assess where I've been, where I am now and where I want to go. I am just coming off the back of my 34th Birthday (I actually forgot how old I was turning this year!), and it's... Read More »
can gratitude and desire co-exist?
Is it possible to have gratitude for what you have right now, while still wanting more? This was the topic of conversation in my business mastermind group this morning, and it sparked a hell of an interesting conversation! Does practicing gratitude for what you have, automatically lessen your desire for change, for goal attainment, for achievement in your life? In my eyes it doesn't, and... Read More »
climbing the corporate ladder?
Many of my clients come to me for the exact same reason - increasing their fulfilment at work. They want to find work that excites them, that gives them meaning, that feels GOOD - yet they aren't quite sure on what that looks like exactly. What are they passionate about? What are their biggest strengths? What unique skills, attributes and talents do they hold? What kind of lifestyle do... Read More »
crafting a life you want to come home to
I had such a great realisation last week. You see, most times when I'm away exploring the world, I never want to come back home. I want to keep going to the next place, the next sight, the next experience. The allure of endless travel always had such a strong pull, one that up until now I always felt sad to leave behind. But not this time. I was actually really excited to come home! This... Read More »
the path to passion is winding
The road to discovering your passion is never a straight one. There are pot holes, winding bends, sharp corners, delays and even u-turns. Winding up living on purpose, expressing your passions and loving the sh*t out of what you do is no accident. It is rooted in self discovery and personal development. If you're like most people, it takes dedication, work and sometimes what might feel... Read More »
be the lotus
I'll be real, I've been in a period of intense flatness these past few weeks. Feeling low in mood, un-motivated and quite down. I just haven't felt like myself. It's interesting that my first reaction to this was to push these feelings away, to move through them as quickly as possible so that I could get back to my "good ol self" (yeah, it doesn't work). I've been trying so hard to... Read More »
let that sh*t go
Autumn is a period of huge release and transformation. Not just externally out in mother nature, but also deep within us. It triggers us, challenges us, and sometime's causes a sh*t storm. . . who else is feeling that right now? I for one have been on an emotional rollercoaster, questioning so many things in my life and my work. It's been a period of deep reflection, asking myself what fits... Read More »

“Julia’s workshop at Fed Square allowed me to look at goal setting in a whole new light. I love her personal approach and the way she covers big topics in such an easy to understand and relatable way. The activities Julia lead us through helped me to gain perspective on what I wanted in my life and also how to obtain this. Above all else it was fun, insightful and so very meaningful.”

“I have taught coaching as an academic University teacher – Julia goes beyond anything in my textbook. It is the best money I ever spent. Her coaching is amazing, she is a wonderful active listener. There have been times when I have challenged Julia on how to deal with unexpected non-dreamed of situations that come up. This is where she excels. She knows how to deal with my future dreams and my current reality. I cannot recommend Julia enough. I’ll also say – I did the work. I never expected Julia to be a magic wand. I expected her to be a coach. She has been coach extraordinaire.”
