Welcome to a free source of articles (also known as blog entries) with the theme "A Better Life from Within".

When I began writing this blog it was all about how to get organized, and the site was originally called getmyselforganized.com. Being organized is still one of my favourite topics, and I believe that living an organized life free from clutter, reduces stress and gives us more freedom. We can all learn how to be better organized through developing simple habits and understanding ourselves.

Although my eBook Organized for Life describes what to do specifically to have your home, your time and your life running smoothly, my focus has always been more on the mindset factors, issues like motivation and procrastination, getting to the heart of the problem, looking at why we become disorganized in the first place and what to do about it.

That's because I'm not a professional organizer, I'm a Life Coach.

Now with over 100 free articles and over 20,000 subscribers, you'll find me talking about a wider range of topics centred around personal development, mindset, self improvement, motivation, and generally having "a better life from within".

I write my own content, there are no ads, and no membership fee. My income is derived from coaching and product sales. My newsletter is spam free, has no pushy sales pitch, and speaks from the heart. That's how I roll.

The theme of this site - A Better Life From Within - came to me because over the years it has become increasingly clear to me that in order to improve anything about our lives, our relationships, the world around us, we need to take responsibility for ourselves. So, I'm interested in improving happiness and quality of life by examining and understanding ourselves and learning to be in charge of our own behaviour, in ways that are for the highest good.

The idea of total responsibility for our own thoughts, feelings, decisions and actions is one many people struggle with or don't accept. It's so common to blame, think like a victim, be passive, and act out of habit, that it's one of the biggest obstacles to a better life for many people.
The state of the world we live in is affected by the ability of each of us to take responsibility for ourselves. We can all of us have a positive influence on others and the world around us by striving to become better ourselves.

I mention the idea of "the highest good", because how we choose to live is not just about ourselves. I feel comfortable with it as a guideline for making decisions. It's unconscious-friendly, unambiguous, and not inconsistent with any religious philosophy that I'm aware of. If something is good for me and not good for the universe, well it's not really good for me, is it? I live in the universe and am part of it. Just sayin'. I do believe we all have some way of knowing, deep down, what's right and wrong.

Anyway, so based on those lofty ideals, I aim to write useful articles to help and inspire you on your way to A Better Life From Within. You can subscribe to my newsletter to have each new article emailed to you, and you can follow on facebook etc.

Anshula Ohri, Toronto,

"Before I met Yvette I had many opportunities in front of me but I was feeling overwhelmed and I had no confidence in making the decisions.  I was feeling stuck and confusedd.  My career has progressed in a positive direction and I am now functioning better in physical and emotional health.  Thank you Yvette for your help.  This was one of the best decisions I have ever made."


Sarah Grudzien,
Melbourne, Australia

"The coaching with Yvette was very beneficial. In just a few weeks I had achieved so much. I am so thankful. I found Yvette to be very patient, professional and reassuring. I would definately recommend NLP now that I have seen the difference it has made to my life. I have left the past in the past and I am happier within myself."

Western Australia

"Your belief in me gave me the confidence to work out ways of improvement, knowing how important it is that these answers be found by me within me to enable them to be so powerful and successful. I loved the CD you sent as your voice is so easy to listen to and reassuring as it imparts great words of wisdom and strengthens the concepts taught within your life coaching sessions. These life skills are amazing!"

Lynne from Lowood,
Queensland, Australia

"I consider myself very fortunate having chosen Yvette for coaching.  It has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I started from a place where I was stuck in procrastination and everything seemed so overwhelming that I didn't really know where to start.  I love the freedom and empowerment I now feel.  Yvette's methods are personalised and very effective.  I have looked forward to every coaching sesssion."

Melbourne, Australia

"Yvette is a great coach who inspires you to overcome the obstacles that she finds in working with you.  She is highly motivated and has worked hard to increase her knowledge in many areas that in turn help her clients.  Yvette draws on her own real life experience adn studies to help those of us who have to juggle many responsibilities and mangage the conflicts in thinking that come from that.  I am looking forward to working with Yvette again in the near future"

Liz Jarvis, CSI Business Solutions, 
NSW, Australia

"Through my coaching experience with Yvette I was able to shift my awareness onto my value system as opposed to staring at my circumstances each day and feeling pulled in a hole.  It's powerful because I want meaning, I want to live up to my values and what's right and good for me!  So, I truly learned the value of letting go and receiving the abundance of knowledge for every situation that gives life, love and meaning to who I am and what I can do, with this fearless self awareness."

New York, USA

"Yvette.  Many thanks for a wonderful experience... Our sessions were productive, really interesting adn I so looked forward to them each week with anticipation of what I can learn about myself and my behaviours.  Every session seemed to flow right on topic of what was present in my relaity at the time and your effortless guiding of my strategies never ceased to amaze me.  I highly recommend you as a life coach and thank you again for the experience."

M Shears, 
Melbourne, Australia

"I really questioned my future career ambitions and thanks to Yvette I changed direction from something I felt I had to do, to something I know I will love to do.  I was stuck on this topic for quite some time and Yvette really helped me shed light on this.  I changed the MBA I signed up for and feel excited about my careeer and all the opportunities in the future."
