Call off the search, you’re already home

Almost 10 months ago today, I set off from the UK to Australia to take my coaching business on the road, travel, and write. To say I got stuck on the ‘travelling’ part is an understatement, as I actually remained mostly in one place, but the lessons I’ve learnt have...

Keep Going No Matter What

It’s about holding your nerve, but it’s also about taking action. It’s about being willing to sit in the fire, but it’s also about having the courage to show up. It’s about being humble but it’s also about not being willing to settle for anything less in the long...

Only You Know

Sometimes we’ve got to close the door on what’s no longer working in order to let the new come in. Sometimes we’ve got to be brave enough to say no. Sometimes we’ve got to respect ourselves enough to know when something simply isn’t good enough, not because we’re...
