Rattling the Stars

The theme of this week on my Facebook page is daring. Before I go and pick some quotes and images I want to share I often choose a theme to hang them all on, sometimes for a full week if it’s a rich seam. It’s not just thrown together around here you know! And one of my fave choices for this week of daring is: “You could rattle the stars,” she whispered. “You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”  ― Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass Thanks […]

Becoming an Impossibilist

Wednesday was Day 31 of 2018 and Day 31 of the project I am doing following Michael Neill’s book called Creating the Impossible, which is intended to take 90 days. Here’s my first significant update although I did write a bit about this on my blog earlier in January when I first got going. I decided I would make the broad context of my 90 days, my impossible project, about becoming A Proper Writer. This arose because at the beginning of January I was still rather high about the recent publication of what I regard as my first Proper Book: Your […]

Michael & Robert’s Coaching Questions 2017

There were two men, two close friends, who went out to lunch together in December 2017 to celebrate Christmas and friendship. They opted for one of those degustation menus with 12 courses. They promised that they would share the coaching questions they were asking each other with each pairing of wine and food but the questions ran out at #7. Draw your own conclusions! Since those two men were Michael Neill and Robert Holden, co-conspirators of one of the most fun and stimulating days out I’ve had in London thanks to (I think) Alternatives and which coincided with my birthday quite a […]

Creating the Impossible with Michael Neill

I’m on Day 9 of Creating the Impossible, Michael Neill’s new book which whispersynced its way into my life on 2nd January. Of course, being a bit of a neat accountant, I had to double up on two of those days as I couldn’t bear the thought of being on Day 9 on any day other than the 9th January, if you see what I mean? Ghastly. I’m happy to be reminded that creativity/creating means bringing something into the world which wasn’t there before. I know that. I’ve done that a gazillion times. I love doing that. I’m good at that. […]

Gurus: 31 Days of Abundance, Day Five

There’s been a wonderful abundance of inspirational gurus in my life, too many to mention. The three who I would try not to miss were they talking live in London are Wayne Dyer, Michael Neill & Martha Beck. Here’s why: I love to hear Dr Wayne talk, and boy can he talk! I’ve crammed into some very uncomfortable venues to hear his wisdom and streamed plenty more online. The book of his I have enjoyed most and found most useful in my life is Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting. From here I learned to go to sleep every […]

Begin With Yes: Steps, Readiness and Action

Chatting to a client yesterday afternoon on the topic of resistance and what hadn’t been done and why not, after our exploration I was able to offer a couple of tips. The first I attribute to Michael Neill as that’s where I think I learned it first. It’s about the next step. If you know what the next steps is but you have not taken it, then that’s not the next step. Think of a small child. They can manage little steps quite easily but they need a hand with the big steep ones. Break your next big step down […]

Review: The Inside Out Revolution by Michael Neill

Any day when a copy of a new book by Michael Neill arrives in the post is a good day and, frankly, an excuse to take the afternoon off, retire to somewhere comfy and immerse yourself in it. Michael’s a good writer, damn his eyes. His gift is to take something which has the potential to be complex and turn it into something accessible to his reader and to make that look easy, when it is anything but. In The Inside Out Revolution, Michael explores and expands upon the teachings of Sydney Banks and his Three Principles: Mind, Consciousness and […]

Slow Down, Be Happier and… Achieve More!

I took an hour last night to watch a video recording of Michael Neill talking at a Dan Bradbury marketing conference. Michael was clearly the antidote to the whole event and his talk was about slowing down and doing less as part of having a wonderful life. Co-incidentally, I wrote about slowing down only last week on Entrepreneur Soul. Then, mooching through my old newsletters, I was reminded that I have been trying to find the answers in doing less for some years now. Here’s something I wrote in 2006: “Coming to the end of my laid back month in […]

April 2010 as A Social Entrepreneur: Following Universal Nudges

I still desperately want to launch the new T1ME website by Easter, but that deadline comes and goes without achieving that result. On 6th April I have a very useful consultation with Philip Stanley, the MinuteCoach, and he says I won’t find it difficult to harness people to my vision.   He’s proved right over the ensuing couple of months.   I draw up a document to send to people I want to attract to work with me. Initially my thoughts are that I want one of each of the 8 Wealth Profiles on the team of Head Office visionaries but I am soon […]
