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...

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? What causes us to lose belief in ourselves, suppress our calli...

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...
