What I learnt from my marriage break up!

I have been absent for a while. It’s now been around six months since I created a post. I have gone from posting twice per week to posting nothing in six months. The reason is a simple and unfortunately common one, my marriage of eighteen years came to an abrupt end late last year. While the seeds of the eventual separation were sown many years ago, the last half of 2015 will not be remembered as one of my happiest. I am not going to go into any detail on why my marriage failed but I am going to write about what I have learnt about myself, and about long…

What are the three comfort zones killing your dreams?

Can you remember when you were a child or teenager and the dreams you had for your life? I bet they were big dreams, full of adventure and endless possibilities. You may have dreamt of being a movie director, an entrepreneur like Richard Branson or maybe a famous fashion designer. However over time something happened. Life got in the way. It may have been the high school teacher who told you to be realistic with your future career, or your parents who suggested you take that course because there are plenty of jobs in that area.

This may be a quiet part of your garden or an office you have transformed into your own private sanctuary. In our modern society many of us experience stress and…

What I discovered from having no phone or internet for 7 days!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to disconnect from all telecommunications and social media for a meaningful length of time? As the owner of a few business my IPad and IPhone travel with me wherever I go. It is not unusual for me to answer at least fifteen phone calls, over twenty texts and emails in a twenty four hour period. This has become to some extent business as usual.

Is your Ego hijacking your Ambition?

The definition of ambition is having a strong desire or passion to succeed. While most of our modern collective society rewards and celebrates individuals who are ambitious, what if ambition could actually be bad for us? Studies have shown that as a whole ambitious individuals are only slightly happier than non-ambitious individuals and tend to live slightly shorter lives. I am of the opinion that some ambition is a good thing. If we never had any passion or desire to succeed then nothing much in this world would ever get done! I have met plenty of individuals who are living on purpose and who are ambitious in a positive way…
