The 16 essential skills you need to take control and gain confidence


Tired? Stressed? Feeling out of control and overwhelmed? This doesn’t have to be your new normal. This week, Deborah sits down with two of Australia’s leading life coaches, Shannah Kennedy and Lyndall Mitchell to discuss why these feelings exist in our lives today and how we can take control, rediscover ourselves and gain confidence.

Shannah and Lyndall have combined their skills, experience and passion for wellness into their first collaboration, Chaos to Calm. Take Control with Confidence where they bring together their essential list of life skills needed to make the “biggest difference.”

Shannah Kennedy is a leading business and life coach and bestselling author and Lyndall Mitchell is an award-winning entrepreneur and Australia’s go-to wellness expert. They met many years ago on their kid’s first day of prep and have been friends ever since.

Within Chaos to Calm, there are 16 essential skills covered and the coaches wrote a chapter each to develop the collaboration and compliment their different perspectives.

The coaches were then “brutally honest” when editing their counterpart’s chapter.

“We can tell each other what we don’t like,” they laugh.

“We both want the same thing. We are really passionate about educating people on the basics and doing the basics really well, “said Shannah.

Chapters include:
Mirror, mirror on the wall: get to know yourself
Shark vs seaweed: manage stress and anxiety
The miracle of breath: create space and clarity
Dare to dream: create your future map
Magnify your moments: master mindfulness

Both Shannah and Lyndall are regular contributors to Balance and provide a range of online learning programs so Deborah asked them how the book works with their Balance activity.

“Just supports it really. It’s a great way to deepen the process and have that experience for yourself,” said Lyndall.

In tomorrow’s post, Shannah and Lyndall discuss the importance of developing the skills necessary to leading a calm, fulfilling life.
