Are You Stuck In Your Stories?

Each of us tells stories about ourselves and our lives. We tell our stories to our friends, family, colleagues (and even strangers!), perhaps repeating them to ourselves daily… they are how we connect with others and our world, as well as how we justify or excuse things.

Are you a reader – experiencing your stories day after day, stumbling your way to the conclusion? Or are you the author – deciding how your stories flow and end, even when you can’t control their start?

Paul & Sam share deeply personal stories of their own, as they explore how story influences our lives and how we can rewrite our stories in spite of what happens to, or around, us.

The power of morning habits

We all have habits that we repeat on a daily basis. Some help us and get us going in the direction we want, while some (…unbeknownst to us…) prevent us from experiencing the happiness and fulfillment we truly deserve.

What you do in the first 20 minutes can set you up for a great day…or an unfulfilled day. Are you aware of your morning habits?

In this podcast Paul and Chris discuss how to create powerful morning habits and ways to overcome the negative habits that you no longer want. Both of which can have a dramatic influence on your daily success.

Right Here. Right Now.

WHEN life gets challenging, do you find yourself ruminating regretfully on the past – searching for reasons to justify present dissatisfactions? The anxiety producing “If only… you’d taken that job, married that person, moved countries, bought that flat, had different parents, gone to a different college, taken less drugs, taken more drugs, had more fun, travelled more, had children, not had children…Continue reading

Preparing for your own “Miracle on the Hudson River”

If you’re a follower of mainstream news, you undoubtably watched and read about the recent event in New York where US Airways Flight 1549 made an emergency landing on the water. It was an incredible situation — described by some as one of the most extraordinary accidents in the history of aviation — where all crew and passengers survived.

What lessons can we take from this extreme episode? Continue reading

Total Focus on the Present

Learning how to focus can help provide you with a more relaxed state of mind and more energy. When you are practiced at pushing out your worries about the past and your concerns about the future you become empowered to take action in the here and now.

Once you can tap into the Power of Now, you’ll be able to take control of your life.

Things you know you should be doing.. but aren’t!

Crazy I know, but we all do it! At times we find ourselves fighting  something that we already have the answer to, but for some reason we just aren’t putting that in to ACTION!

Paul and Sam face some home truths and admit their failings and what they are going to do to turn things around.

In this podcast we ask the question…..

What is it that you know you should be doing but for one reason or another, you just aren’t doing it!?

We’d really love to hear from you so why not post a comment below and tell us what that thing is! If you are really brave you can tell us what you are going to do about it.

Putting the “Happy” back in to your New Year!


We’ve all said it, so why then, when we do hit the new year, there doesn’t seem to be anything HAPPY about it!?

Learn how to put some spring back in to your 2009

Sam and Paul talk about breaking out of the Holiday season habits. Paul vows to reduce his game time in WoW (World of Warcraft) and Sam resolves things that she has been putting up with.

Now the parties are over it’s time to put some structure and routine back into your life.

Make 2009 Your Best Year Ever

Well, you made it. You made it through one more year. 2008 has come and gone and if you’re like most people these days, it probably went much much faster than you anticipated. In fact, the last two, three or five years probably went by much faster than you not only anticipated, but also wanted. Hmmm….how about the last nine years? Do you remember celebrating the dawn of the New Millenium? That was nine full years ago…hmmm..time flies doesn’t it?!

So here’s a thought….what would you do differently if you new that this year will also fly by faster than you thought, faster than you want? How long would you put off doing what you want to do? Continue reading
