Getting a Good Night’s Sleep
When was the last time you had a great night’s sleep? The fact is that very few people actually sleep well. Does that surprise you or did you think you were the only one who wakes up bleary-eyed and needing a few more hours in bed? We’re not talking about full-blown insomnia, where the sufferers usually need some form of medication to sedate them for the sake of their health and sanity. We’re referring to the more common varieties of disturbed or restless sleep that leave you feeling muzzy-headed and half-asleep in the mornings. And it’s more… Read more
Tame Your Stress Response
One of the questions that turns up in my E-Mail more often than others is the ever-popular topic of how to reduce the daily stress that characterises our modern, technoloigically-advanced lives. We just don’t seem to be able to handle our stress. Isn’t that strange? Just think about that for a moment. We’ve made extraordinary advances in our knowledge and understanding of so many fascinating areas of discovery. We have access to more knowledge than any other generation in the history of our species. We have virtually instantaneous communication with people all around the world. We’re linked by satellites, by fiber-optic cables, by microwave signals, all at the touch of a button on a handheld device. Yet, with all this extraordinary technological development, we’re still essentially the same creatures that were wandering around the plains of Africa for hundreds of thousands of years. The speed of our technological advances has not been matched by our capacity to adapt to the relentless pace of all these marvellous changes. And one of the consequences has been a disturbing rise in our stress levels… Read more
Quantity or A Quality Sleep
Do you feel that you’re stresed? Let me give you a clue. One of the most revealing signs of stress is an inability to sleep well. Whilst there are many causes for poor sleep that range from trapped nerves to restricted breathing to painful joints and muscles, a surprising number of people simply don’t sleep well because they’re stressed. It may be a question of quantity – not having enough hours of sleep for your mind and body to fully recover. Or it may be a question of the quality of your sleep. And how can you tell whether you’re getting enough in terms of both quantity and quality? It shows up in the way you feel when you wake up… Read more
Retire With Health: Is Health the New Wealth?
Whenever somebody mentions the word ‘retirement’, most of us conjure up images of rocking chairs, comfortable slippers and a slow descent into physical and mental decline. It’s a common enough image but it hardly does justice to the real potential of setting yourself free from the labour treadmill. There are plenty of examples of well-prepared individuals who have freed themselves from the necessity of slaving away at the grindstone every day to show us that retirement does not have to wait until we are well into our sixties. Retirement can happen much sooner than that and provide us with fabulous opportunities to live life to the full. It’s an intriguing possibility and one that fully deserves our attention… Read more
A New Beginning
I love the way we choose one day in the year to make our life-improving declarations – and then completely forget about our resolutions within a couple of weeks! We don’t seem to take these declarations very seriously. And then we slip back into the more familiar way of doing things, resume our old habits and nothing really improves. But you can learn to use the power of a declaration as a means of changing any aspect of your life that you feel isn’t working for you. The secret is to respect your word as if it were something sacred… Read more

Wealth Bestows Blessings

Choose The Right Habit and Achieve Success!
Would you be surprised to learn that around ninety percent of everything we do is a product of our habits? That`s right. Ninety percent. Humans might be pretty smart mammals but we naturally gravitate towards the easiest way of doing almost everything. That`s why habits are such an important part of our behaviours. If we can choose habits that support our goals and ambitions, we can almost automate the process of creating success for ourselves. It`s all about habits, my friend and, if you want to know if your habits are working for you, all you have to do is look at the results you`ve achieved so far in your life. This may seem like a harsh test but, if your goals have any meaning at all, they deserve the full and undiluted benefit of your daily actions. You just have to make sure that you`re using the right kind of actions and using them often enough to make a difference… Read more

Is there a secret to Your Success? Is there a hidden formula that reveals the keys to real abundance? The answer might just surprise you.
I’ve met and worked with an an extraordinary range of highly successful individuals, some of whom were generous enough to mentor me and share the principles that made them successful. The key to their exceptional achievements lay in the development of truly effective habits and behaviours, the kinds of behaviour that favour sustained success.
None of these remarkable individuals was born with these attributes. They had to learn them. And that’s a very important insight because if the principles of success can learned and applied to create remarkable levels of wealth and abundance, then these principles can be learned by anyone who really wants to improve the quality of their life. It’s as simple as that… Read more
Have you ever wondered how some people become really successful? Do you ever think to yourself that some people must be born lucky to achieve so much in their lives? It’s very tempting to explain other peoples’ achievements by imagining that they must somehow be different from the rest of us but the fact is that success is not an accident. Success is not some random event based on a fortunate alignment of the stars in an individual’s personal horoscope.
