Daily dose of inspiration when all seems lost. Mindset Focus

Some days are rough. Days when nothing goes right and you feel like you’re doing everything wrong. You know those days when you just want to go to bed and live under your covers for the rest of the day. But even on those days you’re doing great. Those hard days are filled with lessons ...

Enough putting your life on hold, start living your dreams now.

That idea that’s been stirring in your heart, it’s time to begin working on it. Don’t let all those questions that are filling your head distract you, just start. Why? Because you’ve sat on this brilliant idea for far too long. You’ve been telling yourself that things need to be perfect and they really don’t. ...

We all need a bit of inspiration

Have you ever felt the need to return to your favourite quote to remind yourself of why you're doing everything you do? The reason you must push on? Well, I do. It's in a way, a mechanism for keeping the path - concise, clear and focused. Over time, I've come across many quotes, but as a ...

Our Responsibility to the Oceans

It is absolutely frightening the degree of pollution in our oceans and it’s not going anywhere if more people don’t get involved, get educated on the subject and realize just how much the health of our oceans will impact the future of not just a select few, ...but of us all.

Feeling Stuck?

Feeling a bit stuck? Ask yourself what can you do to make someone's day better. Instead of focusing on yourself and your problems, look towards your nearest and dearest. Little things you do for the people that matter in your life can really add up and make a big difference. Try it – listen to ...

A growing trend on Instagram and why you need to recognise it when building your brand.

Today I came across sponsored content on Instagram like I had many times before, but this one really struck a nerve that I just had to share with you. Scrolling through the feed - it showcased a very clean, neatly curated selection of photos which highlighted“ a before and after snap of an Instagram PAGE ...

Is Handwriting really becomming a lost art? I’d hate to think so…

I've read a piece not too long ago where it was suggested that 'handwriting' is becoming a lost art. What do you think about that?  

You are as healthy as your habits, -here’s why…

To many the word 'health' refers to our immediate medical state, it is by definition: the state of being free from illness or injury. But apart from that, the way in which we maneuver our daily activities have only recently directed importance to the contribution of attaining long-term health. We've for many years associated the ...

To all the mothers out there who need a break.

Our Earth Moment:- All it takes, is your choice

I felt absolutely compelled to share this piece with my readers. It's not a familiar business piece, a lux travel review from one of my many destinations, but it's about my son and an act where he re-educated me. He re-educated me on a fundamental human principle that can get lost in the chaos of adulthood. ...

Doubt is a killer

I recently read a post by one of my favorite business writers on "doubt." Coincidentally, it was something that I kept thinking of a few days before and particularly how dangerous this creeper of thoughts can be to the success of any project let alone even getting it off the ground. Self-doubt, in my opinion, ...

Recognising New Frontiers

As the week nears vibrantly into the weekend I find it noteworthy to mention one person in particular that has quite unknowingly I suspect filled me with great inspiration over the last month.
