Hi Mark, I’m really thrilled that you agreed to do this interview today.

Buying and Selling ‘Secrets’ to Make Millions – the Big Illusion

There’s never a day goes by without me finding a good handful of emails in my inbox from people claiming to be able to reveal secrets to me that will completely turn my life around and make me very rich. I can always tell them a mile away. I’ve got a sort of radar for them and they get deleted immediately and blasted off into the cyber wasteland. It never ceases to bring a smile to my face. In fact, … Continue reading

Feeling the Oneness

I was blessed this evening to truly feel the oneness with everyone and everything. At a time when we are preparing for one of our sons to leave for a year in Australia, I felt such an incredible bonding amongst us. We went out together as a family to an Indian restaurant in our city, one which my son had been to before and wanted to visit with us all before he left. We ordered many dishes which we shared … Continue reading

How to Stop Barking Dogs Interrupting Your Recording Session…

For several days now I have had an item on my ‘to do’ list and because it is quite an intricate one, I have been saving it for the right time. Or so I told myself. I’ve been watching myself closely and recognising my avoidance tactics. And I’m really on the job now. This means that I’m not making things easy for myself any more. Today I was fully committed to getting started on a voice-over I had lined up. … Continue reading

When is it Resistance and When Do You Just Know?

Last week we had a very interesting turn of events. Not long after we moved to Bristol from Ireland and rented our Victorian house, the landlord proudly announced to us that he was putting the house on the market. This was after one of the steps on the top flight of stairs had broken through, pipes from the bathroom had leaked for a week through the hall ceiling into our vestibule over Christmas and New Year, and one of the … Continue reading

Some Challenge is Good but Overchallenge Brings Chaos

I am a firm believer that having challenge in our lives is healthy and helps us to stretch and grow. Without it everything would certainly become stagnant and we would just rest on our laurels taking everything for granted. It’s amazing how we tend to welcome and prefer those people, situations and things that are in agreement with who we are and what we do but walk away from or close our eyes to those we feel uncomfortable or even … Continue reading

What do You Really Value in Your Life? (Part two)

I talked to you in What do you really value in your life (part one) about how many people think they know what their values are but when you look at what they say and what they do, you get two completely different pictures. I looked at the example of someone saying they valued getting exercise. They think they highly value going to the gym but turning up once a week at the very most and often not even that, … Continue reading

What do You Really Value in Your Life? (Part One)

It’s amazing how many people talk about values but really aren’t totally clear on what they mean by that. When you value something,  you hold it in high esteem and will make the time and space to prioritise it no matter what. And it’s quite interesting to ask someone what they think they value in their life. They may tell you all sorts of things but when you begin to look at their life under the magnifying glass, you get … Continue reading

The Answer’s Already There in the Question

Were you aware that the minute you ask a question, you already have the answer? That it is already there in some form and all you have to do is change your perception to be able to see it fully? Otherwise you wouldn’t even be able to ask the question in the first place. How often have you found the solution to your question and then said that the answer was staring you in the face all along. Everything in … Continue reading

You Need More than Relaxation Exercises to Find the Balance

It’s a fact that very many people are unable to find the balance between their work life and the time they spend at home or recreation. And if things get a bit tight, it’s the work that wins the day and everything else has to just get squeezed in somehow. So what is it that drives us to prioritise the stressful job over spending quality time with kids or partners? Fear of losing the job, not earning money, not being … Continue reading
