I was talking to one of my tennis students today about her interest in drama and singing. I suggested she might want to pursue it professionally when she left school or university. Her response was that it would never work. Apparently, to make a career as an actress you have to be incredibly lucky. She also mentioned that most people performing in West End shows are barely able to make a livin...

Take a look at the picture on your left. It's the latest, in a 15-year journey, of attempts I've made to advertise one of my businesses.  Fortunately, this one was for free. As a member of a Fitness4less gym, if you agree to offer other members a discount on your services, you can advertise your business on the notice board without any charge.  In case the advert isn't clear, this is my hypno...

In the film, Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey's character travels to a dimension beyond normal human consciousness. In this realm (far out in space), he attempts to communicate with his daughter to warn her about the impending doom planet earth is facing. However, because the means of communication are so limited, he can only relay this message through grains of dust arranged in Morse code.  ...

I used to be a big WWF fan. Back in the early 90's, my favourites were The Ultimate Warrior and Bret 'The Hitman' Hart. Although I don't watch it anymore, I occasionally listen to podcasts where the old wrestlers talk about what it was like back in the day and share behind the scenes stories. Something I didn't expect to hear, though, was advice on how to get known/become successful in any in...

Yet another failure! As I checked the sign ups to my newsletter, my heart sank. I'd heard good things about Facebook Ads. Authorities I respected said they were a great way to gain exposure and increase your following. Of course, you had to pay, but I didn't mind as long as I saw a return.  That was the problem, though, there were no returns. Despite paying close to £500 on filming a video, e...

Earlier in the year, I was speaking to a friend who works at prestigious multinational bank. He's young (about 23), and passed through their graduate training programme to land a top job. The starting salary was an impressive amount in the high five figures.  He wasn't happy though. A typical working day sees him wake at around 5.30am and, sometimes, return home at 9pm. Occasionally, he's also...

Are you looking for a radical way to shake up your life? Are you bored with the seemingly meaningless way of life The System offers? Would you like your life to be one big adventure? If you answered yes to any, or all, of these questions then I have the solution. It comes in the form of a 1999 film that introduced a revolutionary new character with a dark, yet liberating, life philosophy. I...

I was 4000 meters up in the Andean mountains when the realisation finally hit me. Attempting to ‘fit in’ just wasn’t going to work. The year was 2007 and I was walking the Inca Trail. Frustrated with the lack of adventure in my life and, in the hope that I might make some new friends, I signed up to an organised trip to Machu Picchu. What was supposed to be an adventure of a lifetime, thoug...

I want to share something personal with you. I want to talk about an experience that's gut wrenching, motivation sapping and, in the extreme, makes you want to give up on life. I am, of course, talking about those occasions when your heart gets broken. Today, I'm going to tell you about 3 times this happened to me and what I learned from the experience. However, only one of these heart breaks...

Did you know that you only have 5% conscious control over your daily actions and decisions? The other 95%, according to neuroscientists, is determined by your subconscious programming. This means that when you choose what to eat, perform in a presentation, compete in a contest, sleep at night and interact with loved ones, you have very little direct scope to influence the outcome. Instead, w...
