I talk to clients a lot about gut instincts, intuition or whatever else you want to call that feeling you get of deep knowing without being able to explain it.
And the reason why I talk about them so often is because too many people ignore them because they frequently don’t seem logical or rational.
In fact quite the opposite, they often seem nebulous, dumb or just plain bizarre.
The net result is when we
Today I welcome back my good friend Rob Collins who has written the kind of post that had me thinking, “Why the hell didn’t I write this?”
Then realizing I was out of alignment with his message I changed my viewpoint and thought, “What if I kill Rob and took the credit for myself, could I get away with it?”
Anyway, I haven’t killed him, largely because he’s 4,500 miles away, so you can read
You may be familiar with the Richard Branson book, ‘Screw it, let’s do it”
Apparently if Branson cannot make his mind up on a new business venture that’s what he usually ends up saying.
It’s typical Branson and you really can imagine him saying that and following it up with, “I’ll let you guys sort out the details I’m off to go kite boarding with a naked super model”.

Life has an amazing synchronicity about it some times. I was only thinking on Friday that I was struggling to make time to write a blog post this weekend when into my inbox dropped such an item.
That’s actually not that unusual as I get sent a fair few each work, but this one really had me thinking differently and that is exactly the kind of post I want to share with you guys.

It is widely attributed to the Buddha and even though he never said it I bet if he were around today he’d wish he had and would probably be claiming it to be his on Twitter.
It has been something that I have talked about recently whilst working with a client
With the amount of blogs, books, Life Coaches and motivational speakers all speaking about self development it would be easy to assume it’s a complicated topic.
It really isn’t though and most problems will fit into one (or more) of five categories.
Well four if I’m being totally honest, but I’m giving you a bonus category, just because I like you.
If you can nail these 4 or 5 areas of your life then
In my last post I made mention of a rather long and in some cases highly amusing thread on LinkedIn about the Law of Attraction.
Not only did it give me some great material for that post, but when somebody referred to Tony Robbins as a ‘Sage’ it took me on an entirely different train of thought.
In the self development industry the terms guru, sage and thought-leader are bandied around more freely than straws
I have been involved in a very strange debate around the Law of Attraction on a Life Coaches LinkedIn Group the last couple of weeks.
And when I say strange, I do mean strange, with the sorts of ludicrous claims and exaggerations that would make a boat load of drunken fishermen proud.
One person when questioned by yours truly about the Holocaust and whether that was caused by the Jews not applying the Law of
