Welcome to The Julia Matheson Blog:
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 »
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 »
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 »
what’s your dream job?
What's your dream job? What would you be happy to do for FREE? Well, your dream job is that thing. But the best big? You get paid handsomely for it. You're probably thinking it's too good to be true, that having your dream job doesn't exist in the real world. But look around you, there are countless people doing jobs they absolutely LOVE, and getting paid really really well for it.... Read More »
back to black
I just got home from watching the Amy Winehouse Documentary tonight. I haven't been this moved by a documentary in a long time. An incredibly inspiring, and heart-breaking story of her rise and sudden tragic fall. I'm still trying to process it all . . .  I guess that's the reason why I am writing. My face is still wet with tears. This review from Vanity fair sums it up succinctly:... Read More »
authentic purpose
Why am I here? I have done a lot of thinking, refining, meditating, and brainstorming on this question over the years. All of which has led me here, to Love Your Life. Your life purpose is not generally something that can be worked out quickly - or is it? If you cant figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you straight to your purpose. - T.D.Jakes... Read More »
urban warrior
There's been much in the movies about female warriors. Women with bows, arrows and bravery. And thank god, it's a refreshing change from the typical damsel in distress characters we usually see. But what about off the silver screen in our everyday lives? How do we show courage and bravery in a world filled with such anxiety, fear and worry? We are human beings terrified of each other - what... Read More »
5 crucial conversation tools
Isn't it ironic that the most important conversations we have, are often the ones we totally screw up?! When the stakes are high, our ability to communicate decreases. Think about it, our emotions run high when it's a person, or a topic close to our hearts. Be it a difficult conversation with your best friend, a lover's quarrel with your partner, workplace tension, or voicing your opinion... Read More »
stop selling yourself short
I was very surprised when one of my clients told me today "You should charge people more". Have you ever had a paying customer tell you they want to pay more for your services? Wow talk about truth bomb. I love the honesty and realness about that conversation. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Why do we sell ourselves short?... Read More »
power from passion
I am high on life. It sounds corny I know, but it's true. I feel alive. My heart feels bigger and is brimming with gratitude. All because I truly LOVE what I do. I have just finished a group vision and goal coaching session. This is one of my biggest passions, and when expressed, a... Read More »

“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.”

Teresa Marchant

“This was one of the best decisions I’ve made. The coaching came during a challenging period and helped me to look beyond my current circumstances, redefine my sense of who I am and envision what I wanted in my future.  Julia helped me to identify and define my values which now guide all my decisions. I discovered my strengths and unique gifts that I have to contribute. Reclaiming these qualities gave me the opportunity to see myself in a completely different, more confident and self assured light.  I would highly recommend coaching with Julia. She is the best listener, life cheerleader and guide I’ve experienced.”
