GO ON, BREAK THE RULES !
Running a workshop in Wales recently the issue of confidence cropped up.
How confident are you? Clearly it depends on the context.
Our location was an Arts Centre so I chose to explore more about confidence through creativity.
The beauty of being c...

In the play “Hamlet” by Shakespeare, there is a play within the main play.
Actors come and visit the palace to entertain the King, Queen, Prince Hamlet etc.
The Prince has written his own play as well and wants the actors to perform it also in front of the royal court.

Funny how just putting on the radio gets you to think differently.
This morning on Radio 4 there was a 15 minute discussion about how to achieve your goals and this notion of losing one's identity once they are achieved.
In the discussion were the Olympic rower Helen Glo...

Seinfeld, the American stand-up comedian, commented about our “greatest fears”.
He noticed that in a national poll, people were more fearful of public speaking than they were of dying.

SPONTANEITY AND THAT P45
Whether you like Theresa May or not, what happened to her at the Tory Party Conference, October 2017, collapsing set, coughing fit, P45 heckler – we could not wish on anyone.

How do you respond when you make mistakes?
If, when you make these mistakes, do you consider yourself a failure?
How does that make you feel?
But, if I said to you that all science, all science is based on the notion of failure. Does that make sense?
They just re frame it...

Sting certainly has a point.
Every breathe you take clearly counts. From birth to death.
Pumping my tired legs up a steep lane into my village after an hour's run, I needed that breath. Desperate to maintain some kind of form for my ageing body
I BREATHED & BREATHED...

While running through the woods this morning I caught myself concerned. Instead of appreciating where I was, the sights, the smells, the body working well, I was ruminating in my head. Concerns flooded in creating some anxiety and worry. A friend and colleague sent me this poem.
The Guest House by Rumi
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?

Yes we all are familiar with this phrase but do we all know what it means?
Well it's obvious. It comes from Charles Darwin and means the strongest and fittest of our species will survive.
Firstly, this phrase does NOT appear in the first 4 editions of the "Origi...
Break The Rules!
Are you authentic?
Goals and Identity
PUBLIC SPEAKING OR DYING ?

Are you a failure?
EVERY BREATHE YOU TAKE
Survival of the Fittest?
