Rules for 2018 #1


So another year has passed and another is well on the way, I do hope this year for you will not mirror the one just passed!

Here are 15 lifestyle choices that I think are necessary for 2018…

  1. If someone shuts you out, let them; and don’t ever return for more of the same.
  2. If someone treats you kind, with love or with affection, treasure them.
  3. Make an effort to do something you have never done before; life is for LIVING!
  4. Don’t spend more than you earn, money for most is hard to come by.
  5. Be nice, even to those who are not nice to you.
  6. Read, Read, and Read a little more, and travel, travel and travel a little more.
  7. Expose yourself to different cultures, different people, anything different in fact.
  8. Learn a language, learn to bake, learn to swim, learn to code, just learn.
  9. Be humble, be truthful, be authentic, and stop being an echo chamber.
  10. Indulge yourself with music, music, music and your kind of live MUSIC!
  11. Drink lots of water, lots of it daily, avoid too much sugar and too much salt.
  12. Enjoy great sex and more sex and more sex, we all love mind-blowing sex!
  13. Be around people who make you feel good about life, who will allow you to be you.
  14. Try and sleep well, relax the muscles in your face right now, yes now!
  15. Try not to sit down too much, try to use the stairs rather than the elevator, try walking more, or cycle instead of taking the car to go 400 meters up the road.

In the 2nd rules for 2018 post (and there will only be two for 2018), my next 15 point plan, will focus on what I now do best,

CAREER ADVICE!

There’s a dark shadow lurking…


I am not sure about you, but I feel we’re coming to a point, where many of us are wondering if we will have a future at all.

OK, don’t sound the alarm, I am an eternal optimist, but some of us are not.

Politically it’s crunch time – in the States, in the People’s Republic, in Europe, in Russia, in the Middle East and in North Korea; we can throw up the cards with each nation labelled on them, and see what happens when they land; but that of course means we are in the lap of the so called Gods. We can do something about it of course and not leave it to those in power to alter the course of our future.

Yes, our earth’s global future from which we are intrinsically hardwired to! That’s enough of the politics for now, but you get my drift and hopefully heed my call.

On to another matter, with the dark shadow lurking theme…

I will always judge people as I find them, I don’t care whether they’re women, men, black white, old, young, tall, short, fat or thin, I embrace all religions, my religion is pretty much agape love.

In my work, I help C-Suite professionals to make lasting progress in their careers.

When I consult, most are open, engaging and will show warm gratitude, while a handful will be so incredibly judgmental and stubborn; and when I am finished not a word of thanks is uttered, even though I have more knowledge and expertise than they do and have happily shoved them a little further along their career path.

So what makes the latter different from the former? It is difficult to define, but I sense and or know that some of these C-Suite professionals, don’t like or are unwilling to accept direction, perhaps due to their upbringing, perhaps recent experiences, perhaps just being covertly judgmental or have an inherent bad attitude. I sometimes wonder what goes on behind their closed doors at home.

Look, people are inclined to form irrational and emotional judgments, without getting the facts, and most as I have said before, will make emotional decisions, and you know what, emotional decisions are usually irrational, whether it is a word or an action, it will usually derive a negative outcome.

I have met tens of thousands of people across the decades from all over the world, and have always set out to leave a positive and memorable impression of who I am. Yet, there are those for whatever reason, fail to reciprocate my positive engaging energy; now that’s their dark shadow lurking deep in their higher being; we all have this damaging affliction.

The Pope recently remarked that the Lords Prayer should be altered, as the words ‘lead us not into temptation’ should be that of Satan. Well as we’ve all apparently been made in Gods own image, and as all of us have this dark shadow lurking, I feel that this ‘lead us not into temptation’, words are quite apt. Forgive me if I have caused offence.

We’re all fallible, or perhaps a better phrase is lightly damned – some more than others of course; and yet there are those of us who try to convey that we’re more perfect than others and make every attempt to hold other people down or make them feel inferior in some way. Anyone come to mind?!?!

Not nice at all.

So let’s use the ultimate POWER OF CHOICE!

So as we approach the Yuletide festivities, let’s reach out to others, smile, share some positivism; we’re all going through a challenging and unclear period in our lives, not least the burgeoning upcoming generation of youngsters.

Most of all, if you know someone good, don’t ever make emotional decisions and run the risk of losing them. All good people are precious, remember that!!

If you celebrate Christ’s Mass, love to you and yours, and don’t get too drunk or eat too much… OK, I am no Ebenezer Scrooge… Live n Love!

Rules for Life #42 It’s what you don’t do that shapes your life direction


Right now, many of us will know that if we had only taken that key action or decision, we would be living a totally different and superior life.

You know, life will always offer up golden opportunities, it’s whether we recognise them or, when we do, grasp them. Being proactive and affirmative in our actions is vitally important, but this is based usually on our desires, wishes and needs.

What our universe will from time to time present, are windows of exceptional opportunities that are not planned, not thought of, not considered and never imagined.

These are the golden nuggets that we must always try to identify and grasp; you will usually hear it in your silent mind or feel it in your bones.

Look, right now we all have something we want to do, something we may even need to do, but we’re conditioned to follow our daily pattern of behaviour… so we will turn on Netflix and binge, spend hours on social media, we will indulge in our often health damaging habits, we spend time admiring those very icons, that have grasped the universal opportunities served to them, instead of investing in ourselves.

Here’s the thing… affirmative action.

You know you want to make that call – So make it!

You want to be that expert – start as a beginner; all experts were beginners!

You want to see the world – plan, save and do it!

You want to be rich – learn from those who are; buy their biographies, replicate authentically, and work damn hard.

You want to speak a different language – study, practice and speak it!

Want to get back what you give – keep on giving, even when you don’t get it back immediately, give it time, it surely will – what goes around comes around.

Need to lose weight – be more active, eat less and be persistent until you achieve your target weight; seek help if necessary.

Need to find someone to love – stop what you’re doing, take a leap of faith, be brave and go somewhere, where you’ve never been before perhaps; you may potentially bump into that special someone who you had never expected to meet – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are a fine example; believe me, there’s someone out there for all of us.

Ultimately, be bold and take a risk!

I could go on and on… but I won’t, you get it right? 🙂

So when (and it is always when) our Mother Universe send you her gifts, don’t ever turn your back, embrace the moment, use the moment and shape your life!

Rules for Life #40… the value of #family


Our family is a rich and unlimited source of security, knowledge and love.

The family should form the foundation of our growth from childhood into becoming an influential, positive and effective adult.

Society has placed in some cases, insurmountable pressure on the family unit. The mother, father and siblings social group of the 21st century creaks alarmingly in the so-called developed world. It is being continually bombarded with negative energy that has forced many to turn their backs on their own family, and seek refuge in friends outside of their gene base who they regard as their ‘real’ family.

A tribe that administers security, knowledge and love is a tribe that can withstand all kinds of destabilising forces.

What was that statement in the Soul Food movie.., all those fingers rolled into one, can be a fist that can strike a mighty blow (sic).

A truly powerful statement.

Family is invaluable for all sorts of reasons, mainly because that’s where we learn what is what during our formative years, and these early impressions will be taken way into our adult life.

We must understand that through our family group, we have been given the responsibility and power baton to realise our true and inherent potential. It is from your duty to the family, that you should make every conceivable effort to become a more spiritually and cognitively aware being.

Having entered this plane of existence knowing and relying only on your inner-most senses, it is critical therefore that you cultivate the latent positive power through your family group, to fully enjoy the confidence to live a life that has been served to you by nature, in order to utilise these rarely used abilities.

Be aware that you have an invisible, yet tangible effect on your blood social unit; every negative decision taken on a family platform, will harm your power base.

Welcome and embrace the changes and evolution that exists within your genealogical group, and entice the influential members to recognise and champion the importance of the family unit.

Living your life knowing that your family base is rock solid, will empower your life inextricably.

Please harness its power!

I’m feeling fired up today, and I’m burning bright, feel my heat!

My parents had difficulty reading and writing, but I’m an author today; and sharing my observations, knowledge and reflections through the written word is my elixr.

I’m driven to motivate and inspire not only others, but my higher self. 

I will leave a positive legacy and memory prior to my spiritual transformation

Perception is more powerful than reality


Sometimes I often and do need to reflect on my personal journey, for reasons that some of you may share or in some tenuous way, understand.

As ever, on the top of my journey list are people; people who you think are friends or even family, but when you dig deeper, you begin to discover that they only have and use their own self-interest as leverage to move their lives forward, whilst using others as human vehicles.

Added to that journey list, are those that drop their external mask and what is revealed behind their crumbling mask is not the person you thought you knew, but a person who you don’t really know at all.

I recall a story, where a married Italian couple who were married for well over 60 years and was celebrating their wedding anniversary. The wife revealed to her husband who are both now well into their 80s, that she had a fling very early on in their marriage. This revelation so enraged her longtime, husband, lover, partner and friend, that he divorced her.

(As you know my mantra is never make emotional decisions)

She clearly felt that having lived together for so long over many decades, that such an honest confession would be weighed up against and understood by her husband, over what they have shared and nurtured over such a long time, well she was clearly wrong… and he believed that his wife was as faithful as the nose on his face!

The saddest thing is, that there was very little life left for them both. 

Perception is more powerful than reality right?

If I know anything in life is that anyone can infiltrate minds by creating a perception of credibility; scammers, cheaters, politicians, fake news…

It can be a very useful tool to have in our life journey tool bag, but use wisely.

However, when all is said and done, eventually the time will come when ‘the boy who cried wolf’, will not be taken seriously because, there’s was no WOLF!

As you know, people fascinate me, in every way possible – from toddlers who could not give a care in the world, who are stainless, openhearted and precious, to those who have seen all that the world has to offer, have forged judgmental opinions on this and that, and still have influence and much to say!

Yet ultimately, it is what lies deep in our hearts and not in our minds that will determine our destiny, the indelible influences during our formative years, what we choose to do and the consequences thereof, who we ride with through life, and that all important attitude to life effect.
