Why Don’t We Take More Action

Most of understand that our results are a direct reflection of our actions. If we plant the seeds of an apple, then at some point in the future, we are going to be picking apples from the tree in front of us. If we want cherries, then we needed to have planted cherry seeds instead. It makes no sense to plant apples then get upset when it turns out we actually wanted cherries in the end. So if we know that our actions lead to our outcomes in a cause-effect relationship, then why don’t we take more action? And more importantly, why don’t we take more action in the specific direction of our goals? I mean, we are all busy all the [...]

Be Extraordinary Talk On Fear

I recently gave a talk on fear for Be Extraordinary Talks, a London-based personal development MeetUp group. The talk was on the general topic of fear and how to get over it, which isn’t the ‘nicest’ of topics, and so I decided to attempt to address the topic with a more lighthearted approach. The title of the talk was “Modern Day Fears, Matt Damon & The Correct Use of 4-letter Words” and involved concepts from some of my other posts on Bravery and Getting Outside Your Comfort Zone, but also looked at historical elements of fear written about by Napoleon Hill in The Master Key To Riches.

33 Ways To Live A Better Life Every Day

Life is for living, and here are my top 33 ways to live a better life every day. How many will you experience today? Laugh Great abs and happy wrinkles are two by-products of laughing lots. Laughter helps the body heal itself and makes you feel great. Plus it’s contagious. Just don’t watch every single video of pandas sneezing on the Internet. Be Outdoors There is something inspiring and healing about nature. Walk through the trees. Hike in the mountains. Splash through the waves as they lap at your feet. See the sunrise or watch it fall below the horizon. Be Inspired Paintings, music, incredible physical or mental feats, nature, art, simple acts of kindness. There are countless ways to be inspired, [...]

Could This Be The Root Cause Of All Problems In Life?

Is it possible that the root cause of all problems in life could boil down to the same issue? I’ve been exposed to a lot of people’s problems over the years, both in my coaching and training sessions as well as of my own creation, and lately I’ve been noticing something of a trend. More and more of the problems seem to be caused by a lack of communication, not because the person doesn’t want to communicate, but because they are scared of how the other person will react to the communication. When something goes unsaid in a relationship, whether that be interpersonal, business or friendship, a void opens up. Whilst initially this may appear small, if it is not addressed it [...]

Why Can’t I Step Outside My Comfort Zone?

As I began writing this blog, I had a realisation of how much being a perfectionist has impacted my life over the years. Being a perfectionist stops you starting things, meaningful projects that can have a positive impact on your life and others. You don’t start things if they aren’t going to be perfect. And if you don’t start, you can never create anything of any value. Being a perfectionist is the ultimate vicious circle. I have to keep reminding myself of that fact. So what does being a perfectionist have to do with getting outside of your comfort zone? Perfectionists have three fears which are the barrier to any great project, and once you understand these fears and how they serve [...]

How To Know When It’s Finally Time To Quit

We have all been guilty of it. Staying in a job we hate, waking up each day in a loveless relationship or holding onto an investment waiting for it to swing. Eventually they come to an end, either through our own doing or as a result of external factors (getting fired, dumped or made bankrupt!), and when this happens and once the dust has settled, there is usually a sense of acceptance and calm that ensues. It is almost as if we know life is better now that those situations are not part of our lives but knowing the right time to quit is not easy to identify. So why don’t we quit these situations sooner? Why instead do we hang on [...]

Life’s Success Lessons Learned In The Gym

When I was younger, all I wanted to do was study the human body. I was a sports addict and wanted to discover how to push the boundaries of human physical performance. How could people keep breaking records in marathons, sprint events and weight lifting. My final degree mark reflected how I allocated my time between the library and the gym. However, when I went back to study my masters a few years later, it was psychology, not physiology, which grabbed my attention. I started learning about mental techniques and success lessons that could create the same results in minutes as months of training in the gym could accomplish. All of a sudden, the mind-body connection that everyone talks about was very [...]

Why You Should Set Impossible Goals

Right now, you should be working on at least one or more impossible goals. Whilst that advice might initially seem to lead to inevitable frustration and lifelong failure, if you think about it, all goals were at one time impossible. Everything you take for granted in your life was at one time impossible. Walking, tying your shoe laces and riding a bicycle were once things you aspired to be able to do, but at the time felt so far away. However, through persistence, observation, coaching and cute little nursery rhymes (something about bunny rabbit ears??) you were eventually able to master these skills. So why then, when we get older, do we decide not to take on impossible goals? […]

Why Being Whole Comes Before You Reach Your Goal

How many masks do you wear? I don’t mean physically, but more of a metaphor. Maybe you wear a particular mask to work and when you get home, you change it to be someone else. What mask do you wear in your relationship, with your family and friends, with your boss? We wear masks to hide what lies beneath, pretending to be something different to who we really are. We do this because we believe the people we encounter want to see something different than what we can offer, and so hiding behind a mask, we can play that part without risking the rejection of our own personal self. When I was younger, it seemed as though I had a different mask [...]

3 Types Of Courage

Aristotle once said “You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor”. We all know that we need courage to step up and make the most out of our lives, but what is courage? The dictionary defines courage as ‘the ability to do something that frightens one’, but surely there is more than one dimension of courage? Is the courage it takes to ride a roller coaster the same as it is to ask someone to dance? If you can jump out of an aircraft, can you also swim with sharks or speak in public? If you look at the different actions in life that require an element of bravery [...]
