Sven-Göran Eriksson: ‘I should have taken a mental coach to the 2006 World Cup’. Is he right?

 

I was reading an article recently about Sven-Göran Eriksson (England's former manager) where he was asked about his regrets. One of them was the decision not to take a mental coach to the 2006 World Cup.

Are You Waiting For Destiny To Happen, Or Are You Working Towards It?

This question came around because I noticed in the comments and feedback that I've been receiving that things weren't or were happening in people's lives such as getting married or finding work, and that it's destiny and if it happens, it happens.

Predestination doesn't mean however that we should sit back and do nothing, and just accept that things will happen for us. We need to be proactive towards working for our...

How To Make Time For Yourself

 

 

A common question I get is "How can I make time for myself". It seems that despite all of our time-saving devices we still don't seem to have enough time.

I want you to live a purposeful life. Living on intention. Once you are living that kind of life it means that you are then in a position to help others. Even be a role model to them. However, you need to be on your 'A game' in order to be able to do that effectively.

Do You Have A Dream Or Plan?

 

Many people want to achieve things in their life, but what is the point in having a dream about achieving something, if you don't have a plan to get there.

I've been working on my health and fitness for a while but recently I took my foot of the pedal a bit. When I look at my journal record, it's blank! I haven't planned anything so it's no wonder that I've let things go a bit.
