Define your own reality

In these strange days of a global pandemic, with its lockdowns, distancing, isolation, panic-buying and more, never more has it been so important to hold onto one simple, yet powerful, message: your present circumstances are temporary; and they do not have to define your future reality, unless you allow them to. I heard Greg Hartle […]

Everyone needs someone

Whether it’s in your business, your family, your wider social circles, or in the adventure into your real life, without relationships – good, healthy, solid relationships – you, and your endeavours, will never reach the heights you dream of. And yet, especially when it comes to the adventure of your real life, all too often […]

Expand your horizons

The best is yet to come. There, I said it: no matter how good it may be, today is not the end game, not the final destination, not the pinnacle of all life has in store for you. No, the best is still ahead of you. But the fact that the best is yet to […]

Find your middle

Do you spend time wondering if you’re making the right decision, or if you’re in the right place, or if it’s the right time?  I do. Or, at least I did. You see, I’ve become convinced that there is no right decision, right place or right time.  Instead, there’s a ‘sweet spot’ – your ‘middle’. […]

First, help yourself

Live a Big Life is an adventure. It is an outworking of everything that sits at the core of who I am. It flows out of a burning desire to stir up a revolution that equips and empowers an entire generation to pursue the adventure into their real lives. But, as admirable as it may […]

Time is precious – you only have so much of it, and you never get back time that you lose, or waste. So, wasting time on things that don’t put a smile on your face – things that you aren’t passionate about – is something you want to avoid, if you can. Now, I’m a […]

Happiness on purpose…

… or, breaking free of the Hedonic Treadmill. Let me ask you a question: does it sometimes feel like finding happiness is about as easy as herding cats? You seem to find it and take hold of it, but then it slips right through your fingers, leaving you back in the doldrums and in search […]

Hope springs eternal

Hope is one of those strange concepts that, when spoken about, elicits a wide spectrum of reactions. Some see the idea of ‘hope’ as almost delusional – detached in some way from reality, and leading those who put their energy into it away from ‘real’ life – while some see hope as the very foundation […]

A wise man once said…

Wisdom is a lot of things. On the theoretical side of things, it might be seen as an exceptional level of human functioning – a state of mind and way of behaving that is all about excellence and displaying high levels of competence, and a balanced approach to the emotional, motivational and intellectual aspects of […]

Aim for the floor

What if you didn’t have to be the one – be the one to achieve it all, to make it to the top, to square the circle, or be the solution to the problem? What if your goal – your purpose – was not to aim for, reach, and then break through your ceiling? What […]
