It Came And Bit Him Where It Hurts!

By |July 11th, 2016|For Parents, Goal setting, Motivation, Success, Whole LIfe|

We had my son’s parent teacher interviews at school the other day.  He had 100% success rate but not the kind you really want.  His success?  He managed to have every one of his teachers say, “You’re a pleasure to have in the classroom BUT stop all your procrastinating and get your work handed in, [...]

The Equation To Happiness

By |June 30th, 2016|Goal setting, Happiness, Motivation, Success|

Do you think we ever truly make it there? By there I mean...our ultimate happy life. It seems to me that a lot of people are never happy with where they're at. They strive to achieve, to meet their goals, to improve their personal well-being and life, but do they ever stop long enough to realize they've actually made it [...]

Why Creativity Is So Important (and it’s not about art!)

By |May 24th, 2016|Creative, Goal setting, Happiness, Inspiring, Motivation, Success, Videos, Whole LIfe|

Thinking creatively does not always refer to creating works of art, e.g. painting, music or poetry. Thinking creatively helps you get out of tricky situations.  Thinking creatively empowers you to think outside the square and make the most of every opportunity that comes knocking on your door. It's not what you have but what you [...]

If You Don’t Think You’re Brave, Then Think Again

By |May 16th, 2016|Coping skills, Inspiring, Motivation, Success, Videos, Whole LIfe|

Do you know the difference between being fearless and being brave?  You might think they're the same thing but they certainly aren't. A 3-year old child could be described as fearless as he jumps off the roof dressed as Superman, believing he can fly!  But that's not very sensible, is it? Being fearless often means being reckless and [...]

Can you believe we're half way through April already?  Where is the year going? Before you know it we'll be planning Christmas and saying, "Can you believe it's another Xmas already?  Where did that year go!" So how are things for you ? Are you happy with where you're at? One of the things I find [...]

It Works Best This Way

By |March 24th, 2016|As I see it, Happiness, Motivation, Success, Whole LIfe|

You know what I find really interesting?  When someone is moaning about how life sucks and yet they are so set in their ways they refuse to open themselves up to new thinking.  Do you imagine that if you had all the answers then there’d be nothing to moan about?  Well, you would think so. [...]

If your life were a book and you were the author, how would you like the story to go? Sometimes life doesn't work out quite how we'd planned.  But is that any reason to give up or to accept any less than an amazing life?  Of course not. Amy Purdy found that out the hard [...]

How To Get Rid Of Negative Self-talk And Worry

By |August 6th, 2015|Emotions, Feeling Down, Happiness, Motivation, Success|

I was on a call this morning and something really got to me.  I think it’s so sad a lot of people don’t believe in themselves and accept less in their lives than they deserve. It seems that human nature has hard-wired us to stall and second-guess everything.  We pull back just when we should [...]
