I'm a great believer in luck. The harder I work, the luckier I get.
What makes successful athletes, leaders, artists, entrepreneurs and business owners is their consistent action towards a focused goal. It's their daily habits that they perform in order for them to keep moving towards their goal, irrespective of roadblocks along the way. What makes big change in your life is not doing big, bold things, leaping headfirst into a scenario, but rather small, disciplined actions that take you forward one step at a time.
I have had students come to my classes and proudly announce on their first day that they are going to be the best by the end of the year. And then they don't come back. This is because they are not willing to do the daily, consistent work of showing up and working hard at improving. They want instant gratification, they want a quick fix. And because they suddenly realise the amount of work involved, they give up and they don't even try.
Whatever you want to excel in requires work, commitment and discipline and in this video you will learn what the 1% rule is, or the Kaizen principle, and how to apply it in your life so you can live your life on your terms.
Life is a game and sometimes we get so caught up in the story that we forget that that's what it is - a story. When someone is talking to you they are telling you their story, based on their perceptions, their experiences and their current state.
When you separate yourself from someone else's story, it gives you an opportunity to be neutral and just notice what is going on with that person. You will learn so much about them that they are not even telling you. When you learn to really listen, you will notice that not only are you learning a lot about the other person, but you are learning about yourself.
You will notice your ability to listen to what's underneath. What is really bothering them, or making them excited? What are the predominant thoughts they are having? You will be able to asses very quickly where they are in life and how well they deal with people, situations and events. Their story is not about you, but when you get caught up in the story, then you make it about you.
If you learn to distance yourself, and I don't mean being aloof, I mean really listen without taking it personally, you will not only be able to offer a lot, but you will be more empowered.
Have you ever met someone who doesn't know when to stop talking?
They drone on and on, and just when you think you have a gap, they start again. It's not a two-way conversation, it's a monologue.
Besides being an absolute bore, there is a problem underneath. Maybe the person has no social skills, or maybe it's something else.
They are dying to connect and share, but they are so starved that they overdo it.
In this video I share with you why people feel the need to share, why you shouldn't and what happens when you don't.
We all know that feeling. You know you have something important to do, you might even want to be doing it, but for some reason you just cant' bring yourself around to doing it. You will rather play Candy Crush, watch 10 YouTube videos or sort out your drawers. Maybe even a root canal would be more exciting.
Procrastination is the opposite of productivity. It eats away your time, leaving you feeling like you have let yourself down at the end of the day.
Everyone knows that productive people get the job done. They don't procrastinate, they act today. Why? Because they know the trap of procrastination. It's the same as immediate gratification.
When you act on impulse because you are hungry or emotional, you land up eating the wrong foods, or saying the wrong things. We act on things that meet our survival needs, not on the things that meet our spiritual needs. The things that will ultimately fulfil you in the long run.
Productive people have got a deeper drive, because they have associated not doing the work with more pain than actually doing the work. It's all about mindset and focusing on long-term.
Watch my 6 minute video below on how to stop procrastinating so you can start finding true fulfillment in your life, instead of empty time-wasting.
Most people are unhappy about where they are in life. The problem is that they don't actually know what they want. They don't know what makes them happy, and what they enjoy. You already know that you will get whatever you wish for, but what if you don't know what it is you even like?
In this video I give you a practical way for you to connect with what you enjoy. With what lifts your energy up, and makes you feel good. When you connect with what makes you feel good, then your vibration is higher. If you remain in a high energy vibration, you will manifest whatever it is you want to you faster.
You wake up in a bad mood, and the next thing your car breaks down, you stub your toe, and your long-awaited appointment is cancelled. Everything annoys you, and it seems like life is out to get you.
Your emotional vibration attracts people, circumstances and events to you that are of the same emotional vibration. Your thoughts create your emotional state, so you if you want to change your life then all you need to do is to change your thoughts about it.
Most people focus on what they don't want, rather than on what will make them happy. They look at how miserable their work, their partner or their health makes them, thus creating more stress, more anger, more frustration. The problem is that you can't stop thoughts from coming into your head, and you may have programmed your mind for so long to think negatively that it doesn't know another way.
Watch my video to see how to change your thoughts by healing your unfinished business from the past, so that you can move forward in life to create whatever you want.
If you are working harder than ever, doing more, taking on more responsibility, but you just can't seem to get ahead, then clearly it's not because you are not working hard enough. The main underlying reason is your beliefs about your worth.
In this video I give you 7 reasons why you are not getting ahead, so that you can look deeper into what is keeping you stuck and so you can release it.
Anger is a powerful emotion. It gets you motivated to take action, but it can also be very destructive. When you are in the throes of anger, you can say or do things that you later regret.
Anger can literally kill you, because it affects your heart rhythm and elevates your stress through the roof. It does not serve you, nor anyone else when you act on it.
The actual job of anger is to let you know that something is wrong. Rather than acting out on the emotion, which can consume you, allow yourself to realise that it is just a feeling and it will run its course.
When you are able to think rationally, you will then be able to look at the situation and see what it is inside you that triggered it.
In this video I explain how anger works, and what it is telling you about yourself. If you listen to the message, rather than react to it, you will be happier and live longer.
We adapt our lives in order to belong. Ultimately, belonging ensures our safety and security in the world. The problem is that when you keep giving up who you are, and what is important to you, you become resentful, angry or depressed, and you lose your connection to self.
We have been trained since young to be polite, to not speak up about how we really feel, to have manners and to keep our opinions to ourselves. You have learnt through your experiences, that even if people don't say anything out loud, you can feel their opinions. And because you care so much about being liked you pretend to be someone you are not.
You can sustain this for a while, but you can't do it forever, and eventually you will grow tired and resentful. You might fight against the establishment, but the real cause is not them, it's you not wanting to make waves, and you wanting to be nice and liked at all costs.
The truth is that everybody judges, whether you like it or not. There is not a person on the planet who has not had a judgement about someone. Your mind has thoughts and they come and go, it's only when you choose to hang onto those thoughts about someone, or how you think they need to behave that you have a problem.
You cannot dictate to someone which thoughts they should have, just like you cannot know which thoughts you are going to have next.
In this video I explain to you why it doesn't matter what other people think of you, and why it's so important for you to be authentic.
If you are not living the life that you wanted to be living right now, then it's because you have negative beliefs about who you are and what you are capable of that are stopping you.
If you could heal those beliefs on your own then you would have by now. I can help you to stop wasting time being in a career that is unfulfilling or being in a relationship that is wearing you down.

There has been a lot of research into addictions, weight loss and scientific discoveries have been made about chemical processes in the brain, and role of the microbiome.
These are all bodily responses, but they don't explain why you feel the need to start in the first place.
When you look at your health and your well-being holistically, you will see that an addiction is a cover-up for something else that is missing in your life. In this video you will learn what is actually underlying your craving for sugar, coffee, cigarettes or whatever your vice is.
