Colin Symington-Bailey | ACQ5 UK Independent Life Coach of the Year, 2018 & 2019
"I don’t think I really believed that I would be living the lifestyle I dreamt of, but the truth is that I am! With Colin’s support and positivity I now believe that I really can have what I want! I can’t thank Colin enough for the changes he’s helped me to make in my life.” Kate
If you keep doing what you’ve always done, then why should you be surprised when you continue to get what you’ve always gotten? (And isn’t that the essence of Einstein’s definition of insanity – “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result”?) Something needs to change...
We have all been conditioned – environmentally and genetically – to think the way that we do – and most of our “thinking” is subconscious, or habitual. (Your subconscious mind controls at least 90% of your behaviour.)
Would you like to learn how to change your habits – to shift your paradigms? Isn’t it time to upgrade your personal operating system?
I am personally mentored by Bob Proctor, the world’s greatest living teacher on the topics of human potential, success and prosperity. Bob – the star of “The Secret” – has distilled more than 58 years of studying personal growth and abundance, and he has shared it personally with me…
There is a definite formula for success. I have implemented it to change my life, and the lives of my clients…
And you can too…
Are You Ready To START?
There are two reasons that you are not living the life that you want to be living...
The first is clarity. Do you know exactly what it is that you desire?
You have a clear picture of what you don’t want... You don’t want to be unhealthy, unhappy, unfulfilled, for example… But what do you want? And how clear is that image in your mind? What, for example, does healthy, happy or fulfilled look like to you?
Consider satellite navigation...
The more detailed the co-ordinates that you enter, the closer that you will find yourself to your destination. Take Big Ben for example… If you were to type “London” into your hypothetical sat-nav, you would be searching for a needle in a 1,572km² haystack. (Type in “Westminster”, and you'd be a whole lot closer.) Type in SW1A 0AA, however, and you would be standing in the shadow of Big Ben... The greater the level of detail - or clarity - the easier it becomes to successfully navigate towards your desired "destination".
The second reason that you’re not living the life that you want to be living, is a lack of confidence. You may call it fear, but - armed with the shield of confidence - fear need not be an issue.
There is what psychologists call a “confidence-competence loop” – the more competent you become, the more confidence you develop. Here, however, is where the problem arises – it’s the lack of initial confidence that prevents you from taking the first step. As my mentor, Bob Proctor would say, “It’s the start that stops most people.”
However great your goal, “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. Reflect also on the thought that any goal worthy of you should both scare you and excite you...
Something needs to change! If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got. You have a choice to make, and - as Tony Robbins suggests - “it is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped". You can choose to reinforce your excuses, or you can make a decision, and start NOW, to take the first step towards the life of your dreams.
Make a decision. Shape your destiny. Cut through your excuses and design your new life.
Or don’t – the choice is yours…
- “I was having serious problems in my life, my work was causing me a great deal of stress and I felt helpless in being able to tackle the situation. The transformation has been dramatic, I am a far more confident and decisive person, I am more aware of my surroundings and how I can control my emotions in difficult situations. I have a new enthusiasm for life, and credit must go to Colin for helping that transformation to happen."
- “I now feel more focused. My confidence has ascended since I started the coaching, thanks to Colin, and I feel happy and in control with my new found confidence. I now believe in myself. I feel strong enough to accomplish my goal I had only dreamt about.”

Training, qualifications & experience
Einstein said that you cannot solve a problem with the same level of thinking that you used to create it. You can not heal in the environment which made you sick.
In order to experience a different level of thinking, it is essential that you entertain a certain level of vulnerability, and that you trust your coach implicitly to support you through your own uncharted territory - towards the life of your dreams.
Trust and vulnerability are the glue that bonds the coaching relationship together.
Coaching is definitely not "One Size Fits All" - it is crucial that you have the right coach for you. Would you enter into any relationship without first meeting the person? So why should coaching be any different? It is a relationship, after all....
