When was the last time you did something that made you feel worse about yourself for having done it? You keep saying you’ll stop smoking, but you do it, and you always feel awful when you do. You can smell it on your fingers. Perhaps, you’re super-sensitive to caffeine like me, and yet you still […]

If you’ve been struggling, now is the time. To cast off the heavy shell, and show the world who you are. To make that dent we’ve all been waiting for. It is possible. I have seen it. To work on outstanding projects, with exceptional people, for substantial income. An influential, successful career working for yourself […]

You don’t want to start. Your heart goes faster. You and your thoughts move quicker. You start to pace. You’re in a mild panic. Because you panic, you want to take on many things at once. You look at the beginning, and you look at the end, and you try to start in the middle […]

I’m falling through wet cloud. Mist surrounds me, fills my skull; my heavy arms. Nothing on which to hold, just fear, and the dullness of doubt. Nothing tactile. So I distract myself from this chaos.

Let’s make a deal. By the end of this article, I want us both to be one hundred per cent crystal clear on one thing. You will know what that thing is, and precisely what to do every day from now on. In another article, I spoke of having an ‘Apex Goal’ — that one goal you […]

Do you want the absolute best for yourself? I know this has not always been true for me.

How might your life be if you truly loved every aspect of you? If you accepted yourself completely, including your ‘flaws’? Maybe you’d find it easier to relax; to be more playful. Maybe you would take more risks. You’d ruminate less. You feel more free. Life would have its challenges, but you might sense joy […]

There are those days when the fire inside only simmers. What brought you to life yesterday doesn’t strike you like it did today. Why? It could be for many reasons. You slept in, and now your whole day has slowed to your pace. You’re hungover. You ate junk food. Jacqueline didn’t reply to your texts. […]

Jean-Paul Sartre said that “hell is other people.” When I’m surrounded by people with whom I seem to have nothing in common, I’d be quick to agree. All my life, other people have brought me tremendous amounts of stress. They have confused me, irritated me, and stirred up visceral anger in me. When I was […]

You make great art. We can see that. You’re good. You’ve put thousands of hours into your craft. You’ve set up a coherent, and a strong portfolio of pieces; of articles; of videos. And yet you’re not picking up those clients. You’re not making those sales. Your art is rich, but you are not. You […]
