The tell-tale signs you’ve taken on too much

Recognise any of these? A meeting is cancelled and you’re relieved. You freeze and you’re not sure what to do next. Previously simple tasks feel complex. The quality of your work decreases. You don’t have time for your health. You keep forgetting things. You’re ALWAYS tired. You’re prone to headaches, muscle tension, picking up every […][...]

The 4 Sets

I believe there are four sets which are essential to personal success: Mindset Toolset Skillset Peopleset Mindset is the foundation – I would say that I’m a motivational speaker. But it is.

February 29th and I had to

It would be remiss of me to not write about a Leap Year when the 29th lands on one of my regular newsletter days. The next time a Leap Day is on a Thursday will be in 2052. I’ll be 85 and unsure if I’ll still be sending you a weekly message. Here are a […][...]

Do you PP?

I’ve found myself being a PP. Have you? A PP here. PP there. Here a P. There a P. You get it. It’s…   People Pleasing. And gosh, it’s tiring. Attempting to reply to every comment. Answer every question. Having a ‘yes’ attitude. Accepting too much. Taking on other people’s problems. The worst is when […][...]

Do you get nervous

Do you get nervous? A question that often comes my way, especially concerning my main job: Which is being on stage, facing crowds (that sometimes stretch into the thousands) and keeping them enthralled while I teach them the secrets of How to Be Brilliant. Talk about a keynote title that creates a rod for your […][...]

Sharpen Your Life

Happy New Year! I received an invitation to purchase the world’s greatest knife sharpener with a rather splendid tagline. Everyone wants sharp knives. No one wants to sharpen them. Until now. I was intrigued and sure enough a very cool knife sharpener was on offer. For £250! I hardly use knives, but I still wanted […][...]
