Insane advice that coaches will give you #3,629,343

Yes, I am a coach, and I am going to let you inside the secrets of the coaching industry right now… because a lot of coaches will give you bad advice.

If you want to know what makes me credible to do this then please check my bio here.

A few days ago I was speaking to a friend of mine who has a successful tech career and is working on a new business idea. He has a coach who is helping him structure the business. The coach gave lots of good advice which I thought was great (get a...

This Drives Me Crazy

I see so many talented people…

Who are not doing anything with the gifts that they have been given by God.

Before I say anything else, if you are a  busy mum with 3 kids and are literally going from task to task and are in the ‘logistics’ phase of your life, please know that I am not talking about you. I am also not talking about the person with 2 jobs working really hard to make ends meet, or the person who is studying in the hope that they will be able to break the...

Gut Check Your Ambition

Uncategorized

One idea I learned at Sundance 2019 Mastermind with Dean Graziozi, Brendon Burchard and Ethan Willis.

Are you aiming high enough?

Is what you want to do in your life part of your DNA?

You have the tactics and the tools but something is missing?

If that is the case, for you one of the most important things you can do is to gut check your ambition. That means checking in on where you are with your soul and your intention for life.

When you have a strategy that shifts your soul and moves you to...

High Five #4 26/07/2019

Hi All!

Here is your weekly Friday High Five! And a list of what I’m enjoying or pondering.

What I’m reading — 

The life-saving power of mental health first aid in schools in The Independent. First published in 2018, it is still relevant today. The charity Young Minds may be able to assist if you need some help online or in the UK. They have some good resources. *Let me know if you have any further suggestions and I’ll add them to the post.*

Flourish + Thrive - Resilience

Resilience is one of my favourite things in positive psychology.

When you have resilience in your personal toolkit you have the ability to bounce back from adversity, to be able to deal with a major challenge in life and keep going, and to be able to continue living life. 

Definition: 

the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.

As with many things in positive psychology resilience is...

My Teachers - The Builder

My definition of teachers also includes coaches, mentors, and pretty much anybody that provides me with an opportunity to learn. For example, in the past few months I have come to realise that our builder is a great teacher for me. Let’s call him James. He is a kind and patient man who knows how to handle, and respond to older people when they are being overly concerned about things I would consider to be small. I have seen him do this with a number of other older adults. I think he...

It’s Too Darn Hot

At the time of writing the weather in London this week is going to be anything up to 37 degrees Celsius! For my American cousins that is almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit. And London is not set up for heat like this - I can handle Los Angeles heat but not London heat! Sadly, gone are the days when we had a good summer and a good winter, now the weather just seems to be a big blur except for the occasional blips of extreme weather...

So how does one cope in the London heat?  With no air...
