Welcome to this week’s broadcast of Jacquie Straight Up, the place to be if you want to live a kick-ass life of wealth and freedom. So as you can see, I’m coming to you today from inside my swimming pool! Summer is drawing to an end, and hopefully soon because it is really hot in the California Desert!

But I was just having a swim and thinking about something for myself today and then thought “Wow, this is something that I really want to share with everybody”. It’s a question again for you this week and it goes like this! What would you do if you knew that you could not fail? It’s an amazing thought to ponder. Think  of things like: would you start a business, would you write a book, would you introduce yourself to somebody, would you apply for a job that you thought was a real stretch, would you change your career, would you organize a really challenging adventure like climbing Kilimanjaro or running a marathon?

For this week’s Jacquie Straight Up, I have something on my mind right now that I want to share with you. And I want to ask you this question…. Is there something that you need to give yourself permission for? This came up for me today and it’s strange how very releasing it was when I found myself saying “I give myself permission to look at something a totally different way”. So If you’ve been doing something one way or if you have been fixated on something in your life going a certain way, what if you gave yourself permission to look at it differently? What if you gave yourself permission to do something differently to what everybody else is doing?

In this week’s video I am sharing with you the simple solution to feeling stuck, unhappy or stagnant in your life. When you’re in that place I get that it feels daunting but the solution is really simple. It’s the Bicycle principle! Quite simply, it means that it’s easier to make changes in your life when you are moving. And you may be asking but How? –  when I don’t know what to do or how to move or where to go? Hang on a second – I’m gonna address that in a minute but back to the bicycle principle for a minute, just like life, you can’t steer a bicycle unless you are moving so you’ve got to start moving somehow, somewhere in any direction at first in order for you to begin to steer.

Welcome to this week’s broadcast of Jacquie Straight Up, the place to be if you want to live a kick-ass life of wealth and freedom. I love the subject of this week’s video – it’s all about the power of HUGS!! There are some amazing stats about hugs that you may not know about – I was totally blown away when I started looking into this. Research shows that deep hugs are extremely effective at healing sickness, disease, loneliness, stress, anxiety and depression! It’s incredible! Here’s the thing, hugs instantly boost oxytocin levels – the “love” neurotransmitter that promotes feelings of contentment. When oxytocin is released into the body it lowers the heart rate and lowers stress levels and blood pressure.

Welcome to this week’s broadcast of Jacquie Straight Up, the place to be if you want to live a kick-ass life of wealth and freedom. In this week’s video, I want to share my heart and a miracle with you. My beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Spencer Somerville passed on rather unexpectedly on July 17th at the age of 15. We shared a bond like no other and were completely joined at the hip – so my heart broke that day. But as I have spoken about before, even the most devastating losses can be an opportunity for new beginnings. And that message was sent to me loud and clear following my precious pup’s death. He passed away on a Sunday and on Monday morning at 5 am I hiked up a local mountain.
