Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my readers

Tags: , , , , , Health, Uncategorized

I love this time of the year as for me it incorporates a review of the previous year and all the achievements, learning and challenges followed by the excitement of all the new ventures, goals and challenges I will face in the coming 12 months.
2016 has greater links with the previous year than any of the recent New Year periods. During 2015, I spent my free time writing a new book all about the 20 years plus of living since the cancer diagnosis. The book takes the reader from the moment of terminal diagnosis through the operation, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and the many alternative therapies which have helped me to survive and thrive since. There are some very funny bits in the book and as you will imagine because of Read More

I was contacted by Sarah Maber a journalist as she was preparing an article for the Boots Health and Beauty magazine (November and December issue). The article is along the lines of how to reduce stress and delegate at Christmas and is called The More the Merrier!
Unfortunately, you cannot read the article on-line which means a trip to Boots to collect your copy. The good news is that the magazine is free.
In the article she says that you need to silence Read More

No Blogs Equals A New Book Is On The Way

I spent the summer writing a new book which I will be announcing later in the year. I am now finishing the final chapters and the editing will begin in earnest nearer the end of September.

The book is about my cancer journey and how I managed to survive, so far, 23 years after a terminal diagnosis. I was spurred on to write the book by David Vox, the Founder & President of Goaly.com, during an interview. He asked me what my plans were for the next 10 years and I said I was going to write another book; only this one was going to cover the cancer journey. He was so excited about the idea and asked me questions on what would be included and as I explained some of the content he became very animated – that is David’s style and it is very infectious. The end result of this interview is instead of the writing being in my 10 year plan it is now this year’s project!

I am really behind this saying from Ghandi because I know exactly what impact chasing wealth can have on one’s health. I also have intimate knowledge of the wealth of health! Being diagnosed with Cancer had the positive effect of enlightenment for me.

Don’t get me wrong! I love and adore wealth, only Read More

In the middle of last year I was contacted by the directors of a new venture for coaches and asked if I would like to be involved. The company are Goaly.com and they are setting up a company to make coaching strategies from the top coaches available via videos, to anyone around the world. They were filming in London in September and wanted me to contribute some of my successful coaching strategies.

David Vox, director interviewed me the morning of the filming just to get a feel for Read More

Autumn Appraisal

Tags: , , , , , , Personal Success

wooden-road As I march my way through autumn, I realise the year has galloped away with me and I have not achieved all the things I started out to achieve. Now normally I would start to beat myself up about this lack of commitment to goals and achieving them. After all said and done, as life coaches we promote the setting of and achieving of goals as the mainstay of our activities as coaches. So how come I am not getting upset Read More

What does good health mean to you?

In line with my own definition of good health, where am I now?

I realise this seems a strange thing to ask you to consider. The reason I ask is because we are all at different levels of health and for some of us good health would just mean being able to walk up the street without getting out of breath. For others it means being full of energy. You need to determine your own definition of health before you will know if you have it or not. Spend some time thinking about the answer and write it down in your note book.

You are what you eat!
There are many sayings about what we eat such as Read More

Time For Your Passions?

Time is your most important commodity. There, I have said it. You cannot afford to waste any time because it is not refundable. You cannot mortgage it or borrow it from someone else. You are given the same amount every day and, at the end of the day, it has gone.

Everyone has the same amount, it is what you do with it that is the important part. I am not suggesting that you currently waste time deliberately; it’s just that, as a business owner, you can easily become involved in the details and gradually create unhealthy processes, procedures and politics. These all absorb your time unproductively. Read More

The Easiest & Most Effective Relationship Tip In Difficult Situations

Tags: , , , , , , , Book Extracts, Tips

This is a great tip that I use when confronted with difficult situations. It is the simplest technique you will learn in the Personal Success Handbook and yet it is one of the most powerful ones. It is called Low ‘n’ slow, and all you need to do is to speak in a very low tone and at a slower pace.

If you lower you tone by one or two levels you will disarm the situation. Determine your level of speaking normally and mark the level out of 10, where 10 is shouting and 0 is not speaking. Practice going up and down the scale until you know what number you speak at normally. Now all you do is lower your voice one to two levels. For example if you find your normal voice tone is level six on your scale then during confrontation or conflict, lower your tone by two levels. Use the same technique for your speed of speaking, with level 10 being nearly garbled it is so fast and 0 is not speaking. Read More
