Special Announcement – build rapid momentum today!

We are delighted to announce that we have created a FREE training presentation to give you a brand new, simple-to-follow, yet very powerful approach for taking more action, more consistently, more of the time. What we’re about to share will help you stay on-track and build rapid momentum for the rest of the year.

Show me the video!

If you want 2011 to be a year you can be proud of, then make sure you don’t miss this video – as it will only be available until midnight Fri 25th February (UK time)!

I want to watch it right now! I understand the free training presentation will be taken down at midnight on Fri 25, & I don’t want to miss out!

In this variation from the usual podcasts, Chris and Sam share why they are so excited about this never-presented-before content that has been created for you. After 2 years and over 80,000 downloads (plus blog posts too), we know it’s time to expand what we do and bring you even more insights, tools and value to help you achieve all you want to in 2011.

It’s free. It’s powerful.

It’s the turning point you’ve been seeking.

We look forward to having you join us for this incredibly powerful presentation!

Body Wisdom

Our bodies influence how we think and feel in a way that goes beyond “gut instinct”. There is much wisdom in our physical being, yet we often remain oblivious to it, or even worse, railroad over it regardless. So what does it cost us to ignore the messages that millions of our own cells are giving us?

Today, I’ve been out-of-sorts (or crabbit, as they call it up here!) all day, feeling lethargic and even a bit nauseous… not to mention having trouble concentrating. Why? Largely because I chose to ignore what my body was telling me during the last 24hrs. Continue reading

Teething Pains

Trying to do something new for the first time can be daunting, and even once you get started it can still feel downright difficult. Whether it is trying to turn your hand to a new skill at work, put a new habit in place or do what’s needed to adjust to change, it can be painful regardless of whether it is something you want to do or not.

Have you recently started something new, or been hesitating from taking the plunge?

Paul & Sam explore different ways of dealing with the teething pains of trying a new challenge, and how you can let them be helpful rather than harmful. Take your pick of perspective shifts to either motivate, strengthen or sign-post you along the way!

The Power of the First 1/10th

You may not have noticed, it probably passed like a ship in the night, but this week included a milestone day for all of us. That’s right…Monday February 7th was the 37th day of the year. An ordinary day by any standards but one that also marked the end of the first 10% of this year.

One-tenth of 2011 is now gone. How was it for you?

Are you off to a flying start like an Olympic sprinter? Are you really making an effort to do what you want to do? Having more fun, checking off your to-do list with a steady flow of energy and optimism?

Or are you still stuck in the starting blocks? Putting off what really matters to you or perhaps waiting for some issues to clear before starting on your goals for the year? Maybe just postponing real action until Continue reading

Give Yourself a Break, Commit to Less

(*Sorry if you have received this post twice, the first time the audio wasn’t attached then I some how managed to attach the wrong audio! Maybe I should give myself a break 🙂  Paul )

Do you often find yourself saying yes to an increased workload, when you should be saying “No”? Are you working evenings and weekends leaving no time for FUN, or hobbies or relaxing with your family and loved ones? How about asking for longer deadlines, or factoring in more realistic time schedules for your work? Covering Tip #25 from our book 80 Tips, Tricks and Perspective Shifts for Everyday Action, Gina and Chris share their own experiences of being overwhelmed and the repercussions of taking on more than they can chew. And how by committing to less, and incorporating more FUN into their lives, they are actually achieving more.

10 Power Questions to move you forward

Are you looking for new direction and new inspiration this year? Instead of asking others for advice, how about asking yourself these 10 power questions. They’ll give you insights and guidance towards creating the life that you really want.

1.  If tomorrow was your last day on Earth, what would you wish you’d done in your life (but haven’t).

2. Do you have a recurring vision or dream about a particular place, job, activity, people?

3. What do you feel you were put on this Earth to do?

4. What do you care deeply about?

5. Name 5 things you are really good at.

6. Ask 5 people what they think you’re good at.

7. If you had a week all to yourself without any responsibilities, what would you do?

8. What’s the most important decision you are facing right now? What stops you from making it?

9. If I told you that you had unlimited time and resources and that you could do anything you want in life, what would that be?

10. What are the first steps you can take towards doing the work or leading the life you’d love?

Inside your heart is a dream that may yet be unfulfilled. By focusing on what you love, rather than what you feel you should be doing will give you greater energy and insight. One easy way to start is to write non-stop for about 20 minutes, listing all the things you love doing. I did this recently and it was very revealing! Begin using your imagination to create, rather than clinging to a belief system that holds you back. Every single thing you see in the world today was created initially by someone’s imagination. As Lennon himself said: “Imagine…”
