No-one is Coming to Wave a Magic Wand

No matter how much we dream of the knight in shining armour whisking us off to the castle to live happily ever after, or the powerful leader who spots our talents and plucks us out of mundane corporate obscurity catapulting us into the dream career opportunity, or the fairy godmother who swooshes away our endless domestic drudgery in one sparkly…

Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges | Amy Cuddy

Amazing, life changing book. Incredible science asserting that our physical stance can actually trigger hormone release which impacts our physiology ie stand powerfully and tall and you'll release more testosterone making you actually feel and BE more assertive, powerful and impactful. I use her guidance every single day; in every meeting, before every presentation, every time I feel apprehension I…

Seize Technology for Business & Personal Growth, Oh Yes

Have you seen Ken Robinson’s Ted Talk on how schools are killing creativity? Robinson laments an antiquated ethos lingering in our education system which enforces learning by rote. His point is that this yields little value later ‘out in the big wide world’ for our children who will enter adult life in the most unpredictable and volatile time in history.…

Follow Your Heart

Today is boom time for ‘consciousness’, for ‘awakening’. We’re in an effervescent era of mindfulness exploration as we all grapple to breathe, be present and step out of the whirlwinds of our tumultuous, tech filled, stimulus assaulted lives. We’re all seeking utopian states of peace, joy and fulfilment, be they ephemeral or eternal. Much of the advice out there, amidst…

The Impact of Angry Parenting on Young Souls. Don’t Do It.

It’s absolutely true and fair to acknowledge that sometimes our kids drive us up the wall. They bicker, they disobey, they are mischievous, they answer back, they are defiant. So inevitably as parents sometimes the frustration levels trying to get this little person to conform and do it our way makes us bubble up into explosion. We shout, we yell,…

As A Man Thinketh | James Allen

This is a beautiful, timeless, short and sweet bible of sorts.  Written in 1903, the teachings are as valid and profound today as they were ground breaking when first popularised. Allen is the pioneer of popularist personal development literature. There are some gems to take heed of like... Circumstance does not make the man. It reveals him to himself.’  Oh…

Awaken The Giant Within | Tony Robbins

A timeless classic. One of Tony Robbins’ earliest manuscripts I believe this to be the foundation of modern self help teachings. It’s based on NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, and builds on this with Tony’s own freshly termed form of curative therapy Neuro Associative Conditioning. NAC is based on some simple steps. Decide what you really want and what’s preventing you…
