The 29th December 2016 will forever be a significant day. It was a Thursday, and every Thursday, I open Campaign Monitor (the email marketing company I use) and check how many new subscribers I get each week. I knew I was getting close. Two weeks prior, I had an article featured on Pick The Brain. This brought in the usual flow of 30 to 50 new subscribers and got me within 15 of hitting the m...

2016 is over. 2017 is upon us. It's a new year, full of possibilities and yet to be determined outcomes. As it begins, your thoughts may turn to what you're going to do differently this time around The Sun. You may even set yourself some New Year's Resolutions or goals. I'm no stranger to this impulse. I love challenging myself. Even more than that, I love the idea of experimenting with diff...

A couple of days ago, I read an article in the Sunday Times Magazine about depression (Entitled 'The Sad Lads'). It focused on 3 young men, all in their twenties who, inexplicably, started experiencing this condition. Their symptoms were debilitating. They lost relationships, couldn't leave the house, experienced suicidal thoughts and one, bizarrely (although I felt sorry for him), want...

I'm currently watching 'Beyond The Flood'. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio and focuses on the devastation being caused by climate change. For today, 30th October, it's free on a ton of different devices and on YouTube. My advice is to watch it.It's shocking, heartbreaking and disgusting. I don't know what to think about humanity. It honestly leaves me with a feeling of revulsion that we knowingly co...

Do you have any idea what you are truly capable of? Can you grasp the awesomeness of the life you could be living RIGHT NOW?You, yes YOU, were born with the potential to be great and have all the resources needed to be happy, loved and wealthy. What, then, causes the vast majority of us to lose sight of the bigger picture?

I was watching the film, The Gambler, on DVD about a week ago and there was a monologue in it that completely blew my mind. It was one of those pieces of dialogue, very similar in sentiment to the, 'our great war is a spiritual war, our great depression is our lives'  speech from Tyler Durden in Fight Club, that perfectly captures the sense of disillusionment that many of us feel with modern li...

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 Lin...

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. I remember when I started; getting 100 Likes seemed an impossibly huge number. Now (after a considerable amount of time), the page seems to be growing without putti...

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 referen...
