What if .. You run out of time

Time, as You know, can be your worst enemy And also can be Your best friend.

So it makes sense that the time that You have is used for best purpose, whatever that may be for you.

However, is that what You do?

Distractions are part & parcel of life. Let’s be honest about that.

Time gets wasted, I’ve done that.

But there comes a time .. [unintentional pun] .. when you realise how valuable your time really is.

Life IS Too short

Life IS Too short

What would Your life be like? .. without the continual excitement of ..

Setting & achieving Goals.

Enjoying Fun, doing work that You Love, spending quality time with family/friends & creating Adventure.

Continual is the key here. You may be currently only doing this in spits & spurts.

Which leaves the rest of your time largely idle.

A Suggestion ..  How about You make your time your priority and make the things that are important to you an absolute priority.

It is often said that “Now” is the best time to do anything.

It is often said because in a vast majority of cases it is TRUE.

Especially when it comes to maximising your time with invigorating action.

Doing what is important to & for You IS incredibly liberating.

I strongly suggest that You take this on board before it’s too late.

Life IS too short. Regret is a bitter pill to swallow.

Your Imagination .. is Your power source.

After all what is life without imagination?

Boring. Meaningless. These are two words that instantly come to mind.

And this power source of Yours feeds Your Creativity and Your mindset.Imagination WP Blog post

“Imagination is greater than knowledge”  said Einstein.

So imagine more. Flex those imagination muscles of Yours.

And while you are at it throw in some Big Dreams ..

and dream them often.

And from those dreams go and create stuff & believe in what You are creating.

Visualise this, visualise a life full of creativity, dreams and goals that are set from those dreams.

Your goals. Your dreams. Your creativity.

Touch it, feel it. Imagine it.

Life is TOO short for “Lack”

Very brief posting however straight to the point.

Carrying an excess baggage of “lacks” through life is going to weigh You down .. Heavily.

Spending Your time worrying about what You don’t have is personal growth suicide.

Life is Too short for that.

Embrace what You DO have & work with it to gradually fill Your ‘lack gaps’.

It may take time [it will] however You will also grow with the experience.Life is Too short blog post

Choice .. is it something that comes naturally to You?

Choice surrounds us each & every day.

Some people revel in making choices.

Some others simply try to avoid making choices.

Like it or not, everything that You think & do has a large element of choice involved.

You are a natural chooser.

But when the crunch comes & you have to make important choices, life changing maybe .. how do You think you will handle that?

Will You step up & nail that sucker?

Choose .. Decide

Choose .. Decide

Or will You look for an excuse to shy away from making [this choice]?

You can’t run & hide forever. Choices build strength. Your strength.

You won’t get every one right. But You must make them.

The more choices that You make, the better that You get [at making them].

Hone your skills. Your Choice skills.

Soon You will be making Choices that will see Your life expand immeasurably.

How about You DECIDE to do that Today?

Scare Your Boundaries

You know that Comfort zone of yours?

The one where you feel comfortable in, funnily enough.

No worries. No scary moments. No growth. No goals to aspire to.

We all have them. We’ve all been in one. No risk. No pressure.

But life moves on.

You head toward and in to your forties. Then into your fifties. Then ..

You have a pile of regret.Scare your boundaries

When You stay cocooned in your own comfortable space [for whatever reason] you do become immune to the opportunities around You.

Missed opportunities that is.

You run the very real chance of stagnating.

Now that’s a pretty harsh word that one “stagnating”.

However it’s also a harsh situation finding yourself @50 regretting your missed opportunities. [Even worse @ 60]

Oh Yes, You did finally realise that life was moving on but you weren’t moving with it.

It’s not too late to start scaring your boundaries but it’s much better you do so in your 30’s & 40’s and then live an expanded life rather than one in a bubble.

Are You ready to Scare Your Boundaries?

Maybe it’s time to light Your fire .. & keep it lit

Motivation is the beginning of something HUGE.

When you have Motivation, Life becomes easier.

However it’s not something that is always “at the ready”. Different things motivate different people.

Some people are simply unmotivated .. or so it seems.

Let’s just concentrate on the “unmotivated” for now.

Yes, I think that maybe You. Do I have your attention?Maybe it's time to light your fire Blog post

For the unmotivated, I’d like you to consider these 7 questions.

But please do it quickly. Life’s too short to stay unmotivated.

There’s also 1 answer that I believe can put All of these questions to rest.

But please, answer the questions firstly ..


What will my life look like tomorrow if I do nothing today?

Do I really want this day to repeat itself?

If I could do anything, what would that Be and would I do that today?

Can I look myself in the mirror and be proud?

What do my friends & family think of Me?

When I’m 60 what will I regret not doing earlier?

Is “there’s always tomorrow” my most common excuse?

The last question may give You a hint as to my One [1] answer.

Tomorrow is a chance to begin again. This is an oft used analogy.

For the unmotivated “tomorrow” just keeps coming. There is always another one so no pressure to change.

However you eventually run out of ‘tomorrows’ and suddenly you are that 60 year old sitting in the corner mulling over all of your regrets.

Is that the way you want it to be?

Can I be so bold as to suggest this? ..

Start Today as a new day .. and then consider each day onward as ‘new days’ rather than tomorrows.

Try that & see how You go.

You can motivate yourself. Your life deserves that at the very least.

What do I want for Xmas?

I like to keep things simple.

You know, uncomplicated, uncluttered, no hassles.

It doesn’t always work that way however I think you get what I’m saying.

Xmas/Christmas for right or wrong often becomes too complicated. Too busy. Major hassles.

Don’t get me wrong. I love the Xmas time of year.

But can’t we just get to enjoy time with family/friends without All the commercialism that goes with it?

Leave it as a time for reflection. A time for love [that should be all the time]. A time to really cherish your family/friends.

What do I want for Xmas- WP Blog post

Set Outstanding, Meaningful goals for 2016

What Do I want for Xmas? 


I want bigger, better goals for 2016. Nothing more, nothing less.

Each year I set out to raise the bar a little higher .. for myself .. And for my clients both existing and future.

Please, don’t just set New Years Resolutions.

Resolve to set outstanding goals instead. And resolve to stick to them until achieved. Goals with Meaning. Goals with Purpose.

Does this sound good to You? Go for it.

And if You do get a little stuck with this, get in touch with Me.

And before I go, please ..  enjoy a magic Xmas holiday season.
