How to avoid a mediocre life


"Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do." Bruce Lee A couple of questions for you… How many of the things that you told yourself at the beginning of the year that you were going to do, have you followed through with so far? How long will you wait until something you "should" do becomes something you "must" do? What is really stopping you? In this video, I talk about the importance of taking action. You see… Knowledge is only potential power. The real, true power ...

15 powerful habits to embrace

1. Read every single day. The diet you feed your mind is just as important as what you feed your body. 2. Take care of your wellbeing. Both your mental and physical health. 3.

The biggest lessons that 2017 taught me

Around this time of the year, one of my favourite activities is reflecting back on what some of my biggest lessons in life, business and success have been for the year-to-date. So what have been some of the biggest lessons that 2017 has taught me? Here are a few highlights from what was a pretty long list… ​Regular self-evaluation is important in awakening our self-awareness as being unaware is like thinking tomorrow will be totally different while inwardly you remain the same.Meditation offers ...

How to market your business without spending a penny

​In 2013, the University of Tennessee looked into the failure rate of businesses across 11 different industries. Of the companies used in the study, they found that more than 50% failed after just 4 years, while the majority (71%) failed after their 10th year in business. In essence: your probability of running a successful business over the long-term is under 30%. The researchers identified a number of reasons for this, with one of them being due to wasted marketing budgets. Businesses spent to...

What stands between where you are and where you want to be

​If you've worked with me or heard me speak at an event, you'll know how much I love and are inspired by…… people who take action,… people who show commitment to becoming the best version of themselves,… and people who are consistent in the way they apply themselves and in the way they are willing to explore the unknown.The latter very much represents the fact that nearly everything meaningful in life is a marathon.We can let complacency, indecision and inaction steal years of our life from us, ...

One of the greatest determinants of success

​"Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least." – Goethe.In the late 1960s, a psychologist called Walter Mischel presented a challenge to around 650 four-year-old children over a period of several years.In what has since become known as the famous "marshmallow test", each was offered two options: to eat the one marshmallow sitting in front of them on the table immediately, or, have two marshmallows to eat if they were willing to wait until the researcher retu...

Read this before it’s too late…

​"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become." – Steve Jobs. Back in the summer of 2014, I had the pleasure of meeting Arianna Huffington in London as she spoke about the launch of her book Thrive. During this time, she stated something powerful that resonated with me, which was: "There may be no single thing that can teach us more about life than death." This is ...

A simple activity to leverage your subconscious & create laser-like focus

Sometimes we don’t know how we’re going to get to where we want to be. Sometimes we don’t know whether what we really want will actually materialise.

It is why new experiences and achievement beyond expectation, contribute to a richer life; a life filled with incredible stories for you to share and where you can live as the best version of yourself. When you let...

Why it’s important to be aware of your i/o ratio

What is an I/O ratio I hear you ask? Simply put, it’s the ratio of how much time you spend inside versus the outside. And for many of us living in the fast-paced nature of modern cities, this ratio tends to be skewed far too heavily to the inside. In fact, recent statistics seem to indicate that the average city dweller in western countries, will spend over 70% of their week inside, with the percentage considerably higher amongst children. What I found particularly fascinating, was this Harvard ...
