DO you have any favourite songs where the words really mean something to you? – You already know that wherever you go in life, these songs will ALWAYS go with you.
Currently in the UK Music charts, there is a song called ‘7 Years’ by Lukas Graham. Within the song, it states powerful lyrics like “Make yourself some friends” and “Learning about life” and “I only see my goals, I don’t believe in failure.” The song also mentions two particular years of age; 11 and 7, which are to date the ages of my two children, Liam (11) and Lewis (7).
And once upon a time, now all but a distant memory ago, I was 7 years old, growing up in a mining village situated in County Durham called Horden Colliery ...
Throughout my childhood, probably from the age of 7 years, I spent countless hours playing in local parks, learning a Martial Art like Karate, playing in Castle Eden Dene, representing different school / club teams mainly in Sport and of course playing on my Commodore 64 computer.

RECENTLY, I was doing some Private Coaching with one of my clients. We had a conversation around seizing opportunities when they come to light of doing something bigger and better.
Personally, I really do believe that every challenge in our lives happens for a reason. And that if we can learn to trust our instinct and choose our thoughts carefully, we can figure out how to turn challenges into strengths. Short term pain, Long term gain!
For example, if someone offers you an opportunity and you are not sure whether you can do it, are you the type of person that would say "YES" then learn how to do it later because you might never get the same opportunity twice? - We all act in different ways.

WOULD YOU tell people to do things you haven't or wouldn't do yourself? - I think this is a really important question in the world of business, especially your own, because it touches upon the words 'alignment' and 'congruency'.
One principle I do believe here is that where we are now is based around all the decisions and emotions we have experienced in the past, which overtime has created a deeper 'gestalt' at the Unconscious level - 'This is the way it is, kind of thinking!
Personally, when I moved away from thinking about all the stuff I didn't want to have happen in my life and stopped looking over my shoulder at all the things that might go wrong or what others might think, my world changed as if by magic. And that is being openly and truthfully honest with you!
