Mid-Life Reboot

Many people in their forties to fifties say they spent the last 20-30 years sacrificing for their family, running the kids around and paying off their home loans.  They don’t regret it but feel they have not had time to fulfil their dreams. They feel their best years are behind them.  And that’s sad because […]

The Meaning Of Life

Hi guys, today I want to chat with you about the meaning of life. Now, that sounds deep.  I’ve been thinking about it lately.  I heard it said the other day, the meaning of life, what is it?  And simply, the meaning of life is life itself.  Experiencing and enjoying every moment of life.  When […]

Blame Is A Waste Of Time.

Blaming someone else or blaming yourself will get you nowhere. Many of us blame our past for how we are today and why we are not achieving our goals. We are not going to move forward by focusing on the past. Whilst I can learn from some things that happened in the past, if my […]

What to do when you’re in a rut

Emotional stress.

Setting goals You’ve got to set goals so that you’ve got something to measure against. If you don’t aim at something, guess what? You’ll hit it. You’ll hit nothing if you aim at nothing. You’ve got to set little milestones to reach. Setting and reaching milestones gives you a sense of achievement, a sense of […]
