Weird hack to increase motivation

Do you believe in time travel?

I do!

Not in a 'Back to the Future' sense of the word (although wouldn't that be cool), but I do believe in our ability to go back into our minds and memories and relive experiences from the past. 

Some of you will know that, when I'm not running this website and promoting my book, I work as a hypnotherapist. One of the techniques I trained in is called Time Line Therapy.

Is Setting up a Facebook 'Fan Page' a Waste of your Time?

Facebook Fan Page waste of time

I now have over 1000 'Likes' for my Facebook Fan Page - Yay!

Cue fist pump, celebrations and fireworks! 

While I'm being slightly sarcastic in my jubilation, I should pause for a moment to reflect on this minor achievement. 

Are you 'The Greatest' or a Failure?

Muhammad Ali screw the system

Last weekend, I went to the Muhammad Ali exhibition at the O2 in London. 

I left the venue buzzing. Not only was I dazzled by Ali's boxing prowess and career, I was awed by the strength he showed in standing up for what he believed in and touched by his humanity.

But I also left the venue in a deep state of thought. Many of Ali's quotes were plastered around the walls and most of them referenced his incredible self-belief. He went around telling people he was 'The Greatest' and this was even before he won a championship belt.

The 3 Questions you MUST ask before giving up on Something you Love

3 Questions before Giving Up

Today, I'm writing about giving up. Ostensibly, in relation to your dreams, but what I'm about to say is just as relevant to giving up on a quest to lose weight, a relationship or even a contest, as it is to a cherished life-long goal. 

The 16 Things I Learned Working 20 Hours a Week Building a Business in 2015 (while still having a regular job)

Successfully Building a Business

I did it!!!!

That picture you see is me celebrating achieving my New Year's resolution for 2015. At the start of the year, I set myself the goal of working on average 20 hours a week building my business, EVERY WEEK, for the whole year (while still working a regular job). 

I've got to be honest, it was tough. It required a huge amount of discipline and a surprising amount of planning too. In the process, I learned a lot, both about myself, and what it takes to achieve your goals and New Year's resolutions.

Why NEVER Trusting Authority is the key to a Happy and Free Life

Never trust authority

You've been lied to your entire life.

It's likely that everything you've been told by your parents, teachers, colleagues and friends about how the world works, and your role within it, is inaccurate hearsay designed to protect you from dangers that don't exist; or in the case of the government, media and religion, control you in order to support the agenda of a tiny global elite. 

The Ultimate 'unconventional' Daily Motivation Routine for Busy People

Unconventional Motivation Routine

Wake up 5am. (What!?!?)

Write down your goals for the day, meditate, repeat affirmations, do a cold plunge or jump in your cryotherapy unit, then exercise for 45 minutes to an hour. Finally, do some journaling or reading. (I'm sorry, has this morning routine just turned into exactly that - an entire morning).

10 Movies to Reaffirm your Right to Live Life on your Terms

10 movies life on your terms

Walking your own path can be hard. It can seem that you're all alone, taking on a world that doesn't give a sh#t about you or have room for your unique talents and personality. Sometimes you may wonder if you'll ever find a place to call your own or whether, ultimately, you'll just have to accept The System's path and to paraphrase Wayne Dyer, 'let the music die still in you.' 

I don't want this to happen to you. I want you to feel certain in yourself and certain in your desire to pursue a life greater than the one The System offers. 

What to do if you're not 'Normal'

Turing Not Normal

Have you ever been at work, school or a social gathering and not felt part of what's going on?

Have you ever switched on TV and sat astounded at the world you see in front of you?

Do you ever feel that other people just don't give a sh#t and generally won't make an effort with you? 

Do you find yourself gravitating towards, or pretty much forced into, spending a lot of time alone? 

The Lessons Learned from Sharing my Work with the World

sharing work world

The date is the 18th February 2012, and my index finger is hovering anxiously over the 'enter' key on my laptop. I'm about to do it. After four and a half years of writing, editing, rewriting, taking breaks and pulling my hair out, I'm about to self-publish my book on Amazon.

As soon as I press that key it's done. I've metaphorically stepped out of my bedroom and into the world around me with a big sign saying, 'This is what I believe in. This is what I'm capable of. This is my dream.'
