If you were to make a list of 22 barriers that are blocking you from getting everything you want in business and in life, what would be on your list? Losing weight? Increasing income? Improving love?

#1 International Bestseller The Expert Success Solution

Today is special.  I became a published author fulfilling a long-held goal.  Funny thing is, it happened by ‘accident’.  Just a year ago, I was invited to Las Vegas for Rick Frishman’s Author 101 event.  It was only two weeks away but something inside told me I should go and I did.  Liking spontaneity, I loved the fact it was only a few days away.  Again, I felt that flutter inside when the collaborative project was announced and knew it […] Read more »

The Carnival Is Over

Carnival

‘The Carnival Is Over’ was a 60s song by The Seekers and told a romantic story of  short-lived but life-changing romance.  Our carnival is over because of murder at the Carnival, which sounds more like an Agatha Christie title, doesn’t it?  Sadly, Gloucester Carnival really is over, cancelled because of the violent and purposeless murder of a vulnerable 50-year-old man. The Carnival runs for two weeks every Summer and this year, like every other, was due to climax with a […] Read more »

How’s Your Blind Spot?

Fitzgerald

Thoughts tumbled into my mind as I considered the book I’m writing, ‘Life Changing Seconds . . .’, making me  aware of how a little act of kindness or consideration can touch a heart and forever change a life and we’d never know.  How wonderful, the magnificent and hidden hand of the Universe silently at work. Then I thought about how often our self-absorption and personal insecurities may have blinded us to chances for change, little windows of potential light left behind […] Read more »

In Celebration Of Ourselves

stones

I’m amazed.  I’m thankful.  I’m grateful.  Are you? You see, I spent most of yesterday lying flat and thinking.  Lying flat because I’d had cerebral spinal fluid drained off to reduce the pressure within my skull.  Thankful because although the pressure was over 100% higher than it should have been, my body continued to function, maintaining my mental acuity.  (Here I admit to being told I’ve been a bit picky recently but, being Cancerian, I prefer to think it was […] Read more »

Angels In White Coats

NHSangels

Changes to the NHS are very topical at the moment and, sure, there’s much that needs to change.  If you were to be with me at 11.20am on Wednesday this week, you’d be in theatre watching the hands of an angel (and I’ve told her she has them, many times!), expertly guiding a needle between my vertebrae without touching my spinal cord, conducting a therapeutic lumbar puncture by draining off some cerebral spinal fluid.  I’ve been through this procedure so […] Read more »

Life Changing Seconds . . .

clock

Life changes in but a fleeting second, sending us either headlong into ecstacy or unimaginable pain.  It’s like that or we’d all be flatlining, no troughs and certainly no peaks.  Never has this been more clearly defined than in the life of Gary Barlow. Gary recently talked of moments of intense pleasure and excitement as he travelled the world gathering music and changing lives for the Queen’s Jubilee song.  Then of the anticipation seconds before meeting Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace for the first time.  Also […] Read more »
