​"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.Sometimes we simply wonder whether the right opportunities and people will present themselves.Uncertainty, however, is a part of life. 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 unc...

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 He...

Hooked on simplicity

Growing up, my parents successfully got both my brother and I into the habit of helping out with the housework every week, decluttering our rooms every quarter, and giving away things we didn’t need anymore to charity at the end of each calendar year.At the time, I didn’t really see the point of all of this and preferred to spend my time doing something more rewarding, which primarily comprised of progressing to the next levels of the video games we owned and plonking ourselves in front of the T...

What will your life be a collection of?

One of the best things I love about meeting people are the stories they have to tell and the fact that there is always a lesson to learn from their experiences.Whether that’s getting an insider tip from the taxi driver picking me up from a foreign airport on the best place to experience some local cuisine or hearing the inspiring journey of how someone built a small side project into a money-making passive income stream!The content of what many people tend to share with others however, often rev...

What you learn by pushing your physical limits

I’ve a small confession to make.Running machines and I have never been the best of friends!In fact, I used to hate going on treadmills so much that even when they were free to use, I would wait to get on an alternative machine (say the rowing or cycle machines) to complete the cardio part of my workout.With that in mind, you can probably imagine how I felt when I first decided to sign myself up for a workout class at Barry’s Bootcamp.If you’ve never been to one of these classes before, half of a...

The power of the subconscious mind

Last week as I was reading an article from Simon Alexander Ong one comment really struck a chord with me. Simon said: "Go for a real life vision board over one made of cut-out pictures. Test-drive a sports car, rent designer clothing or book a viewing at that beautiful 7-bedroom house in the country. Not only will this show you what's possible, but it will provide inspiration and focus for your subconscious."The focus for the subconscious is not to be underestimated. It is scientifically proven ...

How doing this regularly can save you from the mundane

We all have our own specific routines for work and other habits that we do without having to think too much about them.What you do when you first wake up in the morning.How you commute to work. What you cook for dinner most days. What you do before going to bed. How you spend your Friday/Saturday evenings.While routine helps to bring structure to your day, you can inevitably get too comfortable with this way of living. You begin to feel secure with what you know and go out of...

The 7 habits of highly happy people

Ever since I began working with people to help them achieve incredible success in their personal and professional lives, I’ve been experimenting with ways on how I could lead a happier and more fulfilling life.I’m not saying that we should be happy all the time and smiling until our cheeks ache, but by committing to the practice of some basic habits on a regular basis, we can be happy most of the time.The most important thing I’ve learnt is that happiness doesn’t come ready-made off a shelf, but...

The magic of tracking

How did I put on so much weight? Why was I feeling like I was exhausted every minute of the day? And what did all that money get spent on? These were just some of the questions I kept asking myself on a monthly, if not weekly basis, during my mid-20s. It felt as if there were choices being made without my consent and that the pace of living in a big city like London was one of the many things to blame!If so, I was merely just existing day-to-day and week-to-week rather than feeling like I was li...
