Success – Positive Giving

After interviewing a good friend and successful entrepreneur on my podcast Stories of Success, he sent me an article and a link to the positive encourager website, which I read with great interest. Success, so far looking at only a few definitions from my podcast’s guests, has to do with encouraging people positively during our time on this planet. I phrase this a certain way on purpose, this is for the greater good of human kind, and NOT about short term financial gains. It’s about the great unconscious (Carl Jung) and the bigger picture. It is about finding people’s strengths, develop practical strategies and achieve their picture of success. THEIR success, is what THEY want to achieve. To be loved, live in peace, achieve a career, or whatever it might be. The same, according to Mike Pegg, who is the man behind the positive encourager, can be applied to teams and organisations. So in that context, we are looking at superb work, forming good habits (see my book), to provide a good service, achieve goals, and finish those activities successfully? As I go through Mike’s website, and I encourage you to do the same if you are interested, I find

Thursday Flash (51 and last)

Flash…for one last time. After a year of publishing some hopefully interesting articles, it is time to think about a new concept for 2018. Maybe some more about consulting and coaching. So this week will be my last Thursday Flash. I hope you enjoyed reading it and had some takeaways from the weekly column. And, given this week’s selection, www.success.com is an amazing source for personal development. LOA and reasons you are or are not attracting success in your life – this article highlights what you need to do to make the LOA work. Now are you ready to take the next step in your life. If not, give me a shout, I can help you with some advice and support. And last but not least, if you are after success, and you read about the LOA, understand that success is something that must be attracted not pursued. Easier said than done. So look back at the year and realise how far you came. How much you achieved and what else there is to do. Understand which success you want to achieve and where you want to go. Please stay loyal and check out my regular Sunday Column or feel

Sunday Column (466)

We are expecting the coldest night this year…or by time of reading, we would have had it. Nice, finally winter, and again from tomorrow it should get warmer. Is that global warming? Is that the beginning of the end? Anyway, the cold days are lovely, particularly if you have time to spend it with the family in front of a fire, after attending the annual ‘Light Up Hassocks’, the annual pre Christmas fair. Some of you have noticed my more spiritual approach to things, my motivational quotes on Instagram. I have daily mantras, LOA (law of attraction) and believe the mindset is key to survival, future developments and success. Part of it is getting out of bed at 5 am – despite not working 9-5, I am still getting up at 5 am, go running or do my weights. It is getting harder, mainly because I challenge myself a bit more, but also because it is so cold. However, the effort is worth it, my circumference is back down to where it was a year ago, my weight is on track. I stopped counting calories and continue the journey. That’s what it is: a journey to weight loss, a healthier

Power of Intention

Instead of a Buddhist post I wanted to share a quote from The Secret. The Secret which is mostly about the Law of Attraction (LOA) – like attracts like. If you are nice to others, others are nice to you. If you are a good person to/in the universe, then the universe is good to you. A bit like Karma. You create your future with the power of your intention. Intention is simply the conscious act of determining your future now. Health, harmony in relationships, happiness, money, creativity, and love will come to you in the future, based on your intentions now. Intend every day and create your future life. Rhonda Byrne from The Secret. So this statement really drills on the LOA: if you have a strong intention to achieve something, if you put your mind to it, then you will be able to achieve it. You should not only think about it once, but you need to manifest what you want to achieve with all your senses. Put a picture in your head, imagine how you feel in the situation you want to achieve and how you might experience it. What would the smell be like? What would

Sunday Column (159)

This week passed very very quickly. Not only were the kiddies ill last weekend, I also had some stomach issues from Tuesday which made my travel to Milan rather unpleasant. But I spare you any details 😉 However, the most amazing and thoughtful moment came when flying over the Swiss Alps. Once flying into Milan, once when flying back out of Milan in the sunset. I always seem to get a bit sentimental. You look down on those huge mountains and realise how small you are as a person. How unimportant you are in the overall “earth eco system”. The view is a treat. It is terrific to see the sunset over the alps, the mountains covered in snow. Potentially areas where no one has ever set a foot before. And whilst I sit on the plane, thinking how small I am in relation to the mountains and the world, beating myself up for only being human, I think of my family. The huge responsibility I have for my kids. I am the “go to person” for them. The entertainer, the trainer, the coach, the person for comfort. They look up to me. In their little ecosystem I am number
