Can You Move Mountains Just Because You Believe That Much?

Self Belief is a massive topic, covered by every self help book starting right back with the Bible. I tend to focus on one area where self belief really matters to the outcome of your effort and desire. And it needs to be in you when you make the decision to go from employed to working for yourself. Why? Because it’s such a huge leap for you to take. Employment offers a steady regular income…

What I learned about finance from T.Harv Ecker, Brian Tracy, and my Son

If only I had more money I could….. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard that, considered that and reflected on how different life would be today if only…. And I’m sure you’re the same. But when we look back on our life, on all the things we’ve done, all the stuff we’ve bought and those moments of impulse spending, we can see how much we have wasted by being unorganised, unplanned and extravagant,…

In Less Than 4 Weeks You Could Achieve Twice As Much In Half The Time

Right now, what is the number one thing that is preventing you from creating the business you need to support the lifestyle you want? That’s a question I have asked many people over the years and I usually get one of two answers: people either say ‘I need more time’, or ‘I need more money.’ Time. Hmm, how do we get more of that? Thinking back over the years; if I had all that time…

Don’t Let Guilt Stop You

Many times recently I’ve sat down to write to you, but nothing showed up! I had so much I wanted to write but with the keyboard in front of me, my mind went blank. It felt quite strange and it’s left me feeling a bit inadequate, useless even and quite sad that something that brings me such joy, communicating with you, has withered away somehow. One of the parts of my work that I love…

We don’t need to do this journey on our own

One of the first lessons I learned when I was promoted to a manager was that I could no longer do all the work that needed to get done by myself. I was no longer ‘doing the tasks’, I had taken on the responsibility of ‘making them happen’, which was a very difficult transition for me. The transition from worker to manager was made all the more harder because I moved from a department where…

Why should I even bother to make a plan?

It’s a question I often get asked and one I ask myself repeatedly too. The obvious answer would be that it keeps you on track, encourages you to continue to take steps towards what you are aiming for and it will keep you focussed on where you are going. Depending on your plan’s detail, it may provide you with daily/weekly/monthly tasks and it will probably have a clear outcome with a deadline for milestones. Sounds…

What Does Success Look Like For you; will your business get you there?

I’ve always found one of the hardest things to deal with is a blank piece of paper. I’ll sit looking at it with the intention of creating something: a picture of my dream, my future, my vision. My head fills with excitement as so many different options, choices and possibilities flood into my mind. And then more and more come flying in, I get more and more excited and then realise I’m getting a bit…

Do You Have A Grand Passion?

Passion comes from desire, a longing to work at something you are excited about, something you are good at and something you ache to always get back to. No-one else might consider it a big thing and it doesn’t matter because it’s a big thing for you. Passion is about emotion, feeling something within you ignited and set ablaze. Passion gives you a thirst or a hunger to act, to do and keep doing that…

Humbled by Hospitality

I never cease to be amazed how cultures differ, and how something quite normal in one is completely alien in another. Or maybe it’s not the cultures that differ, but more the thoughts of the people based on their life experiences in their part of the world. On a recent holiday in Sri Lanka we were honoured to be invited to the home of a Hindu family for dinner and we brought some small gifts…

Interruption? No, I just had to say this!

You know that feeling when someone is talking and it triggers something, a half remembered article you read, an event that happened sometime, maybe not even to you and it’s so relevant, so important that you just have to share it, right now? You’re so desperate to share your story you barely wait for a pause, the speaker taking a breath is enough for you to rush into the space and enlighten everyone with what…
