Has the Law of Abundance become a Law of Entitlement?

“‘Entitlement’ is not only the opposite of achievement; it undermines incentives to do all the hard work that leads to achievement.”             Thomas Sowell When I was lecturing at a UK university a few years ago a student came up to me at the first session of the semester and said, “Can I get a distinction […]

The Law of Attracting Abundance

Over the next few blogs we’ll be exploring the notion of abundance and our relationship to it. In the first instance let’s begin with what some see as the natural Law of Abundance.

What perceptual lens is creating your life – PART II

In life you interpret your experiences by processing events in order to give them meaning.  Do your cookies of interpretation belong to you or someone else? Our perceptions flow from the way we choose to feel about any life event, which means that our perceptions and feelings become one and the same. Scenario:  You’re all alone […]

Your life at this moment – a cookie thief lens

Events tend to turn out as we thought they would.  Not because of our great ability for insight but because our behaviour supports the achievement of the perceptions and views we hold. Imagine the scene.  A travel-weary woman sits just after midnight, in the grey dreariness of a busy airport, waiting for her delayed flight […]

Mining the nuggets of your life – Part II

Like a thermostat responding to environmental conditions, living life by skimming its surface will not help you become the best version of yourself and create the life you want. Unless, of course, skimming without really ever tasting the fullness of life is your conscious intention. Part of creating the life you want includes focused learning […]

Don’t you just hate it when someone says “Lighten Up – just chill, it’ll be OK!

Following along with the last blog’s theme of laughter and how beneficial it is to our mental, emotional and spiritual state this blog explores the art of lightening up. Some time ago there were a series of major upheavals to the a relative period of calm flow in my life.  Looking from the outside-in and often from the inside-out […]

Turn that Frown Upside-Down

Turn that Frown Upside-Down

Have you ever had ‘turn that frown upside-down’ said to you by some well-meaning individual when you were smack-dab in the middle of feeling anything but?  Or have you had someone tickle you, make a funny face, or tell you a joke in an attempt to make you laugh and break the current state you […]



Have you ever felt like a square peg in the round hole of life, or vice versa? Why is this phrase, and the often negative thoughts, feelings and connotations surrounding it, so embedded in our individual and collective psyche?  One answer to this question might be that it appeals to our sense that we somehow […]

Igniting Your Passion Through Clarity of Purpose & Focused Action

Connect with Ruth


“I recently heard Ruth speak to an audience of over 400 at a motivational event.

She is a compelling story teller, she held the audience in a state of suspension between laughing at the humorous parts and wondering what would come next in the dramatic bits.

Her speech was an inspiration and an experience. Her style is comfortable, conversational and positively provocative.

She entertains and enlightens her listeners while making them think and encouraging them to take action.”

Peter Wright, Director, Public Speakers Association

Peter Wright

Ruth is an inspiring speaker and great storyteller, who weaves a seamless message within her presentation. Her humour and down-to-earth messages kept the audience hanging onto her every word. Ruth’s message was funny, entertaining, real and inspirational. I wholeheartedly recommend her for both organizational and public keynote speaking forums

Paula Morand

Ruth's performance at momondays was well crafted, entertaining and engaging. Her message about choices really hit home with the audience. We'd have her back on the momondays stage anytime!

Ruth is a wonderful coach, mentor and facilitator. She has an uncanny ability to unlock insights into issues by guiding the people she works with to see and understand their worlds differently. She has a deeply human touch that is grounded in the realism of commercial experience and a sensitivity to the complexities of social and organisational affairs.

Ruth is a confident, inspiring and effervescent speaker. She strategically uses humour to create a relaxed environment while captivating the audience with her story of personal resilience. In a brief few minutes, Ruth left us wanting more and sent us forth with a refreshed gratitude and respect for the power of human kindness and perseverance. The plot twists of life really do occur for a reason and uncovering that reason is Ruth's passion.

As the owner of a marketing agency for speakers - and the host of momondays Barrie, I see a LOT of speakers... I can say without reservation that Ruth has a genuine talent for speaking. When she shared her story on the momondays stage in 2014, she had the audience laughing, thinking and on their feet. Ruth, you speak with a genuineness and humour that touches an audience. It was a pleasure!
