No-matter-how-busy-youI love reading and spend time with my head in a book every day without fail.

I take my trusty kindle with me wherever I go and set myself specific reading goals that have made a massive difference in my personal and spiritual development over the past few years.

In 2014, I have read some great books on a range of subjects and I want to give you my top 10 in the hope that you will benefit from them as well: Read the rest of this entry »

Dont fail before you startIt’s easy to come up with a range of excuses before you start taking action towards a goal.

“It’s too hard.”

“I don’t have the time.”

“It will never work.”

“I don’t have the talent.”

“I’ve tried and failed before, so why should I bother?”

Is-there-something-thatTrains are considered by some to be a wonderful, iconic, romantic form of transport (unless of course, they are packed with commuters on a stinking hot summer day in Melbourne, but I digress).

However, they aren’t very flexible or adaptable.

You can go backward or forwards, but the only way you can change direction is to move onto another set of tracks.

Sometimes, I meet people who live as if their life is a train journey.

Youre-stronger-than-youYou’re stronger than you think.

You can keep going when you feel like stopping.

You’re more resilient than you could imagine.

You’re more talented than you give yourself credit.

You can push yourself further than you did yesterday.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if your community was a nicer place to live?

Wouldn’t it be terrific if you were surrounded by more positivity?

Wouldn’t it be awesome if everyone you knew was continually learning and growing?

You can be the tide that lifts those around you.

Maybe-you-feel-as-thoughIt’s December and Christmas is quickly approaching, but the year ain’t over yet.

The year is coming to a close, but it ain’t over yet.

It could be late in the fourth quarter, facing a massive deficit, but it ain’t over yet.

You may feel as though your career is going nowhere, but it ain’t over yet.

The-two-most-importantMark Twain once said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.”

You’ve been born already, so that one’s done, but what about the other day?

Do you know why you were born?

Do you know what you are meant to do with your life?

Do you know what your unique skills are?

Of course, once you answer these questions, I have one more.

You-cant-fulfill-yourThere is a magnificent future waiting for you, but only if you’re willing to leave prior events behind.

You can’t take responsibility for your circumstances until you relieve those who have hurt you of their power over you.

You can’t fulfill your potential until you forgive your past.

You can’t be a victor tomorrow if you’re still acting like a victim from events that happened yesterday.

Good-bad-feelings-We-tryI was driving to a speaking engagement last weekend and was feeling nervous.

I had prepared thoroughly, practiced a few times and knew that it was the right message for the right audience.

The-sooner-we-find-outNo-one wants to be wrong.

But we often are.

So the sooner we find out the better.

No-one wants to be on the wrong path.

But it’s inevitable sometimes.

So the sooner we find out the better.
