Words To Live By

The best way to predict the future is to
create it!

Abraham Lincoln

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a
tree without roots.

Marcus Garvey

“Act as though it was
impossible to fail”

Dorothea Brande

Self belief is a dangerous thing. If you have too much you become a danger to others as no one can stop you . If you have none you are a danger to yourself, because you will stop you!

Coaching and Mentoring

I coach because I know that everyone, and I mean everyone has potential that they can unlock, to live their best life

The reason I know this is that I am living proof.

Everyone needs a coach, the most successful people in the world have coaches, the best all had coaches Michael Jordan, Tiger woods, Usain Bolt. The day after I went on the resilience course that changed my life I went and got a mentor who turned into my coach. Over the years our relationship grew to the point where we were coaching each other.

If you believe this true to be about yourself, and you want to take the next step in your life, if you want to level up, lets work together contact me

We want to inspire more people to become readers, we want people to push reading up their priority list. And what better way to do this than with a club. As you will discover in many of the books we will be reading, creating accountability groups helps to make habits stick. Also as we learn we can support black businesses by purchasing our books from New Beacon books (where possible)

We know some of you are avid readers already what would be really good is for you to share your experiences, tips and tricks to getting through books and make the habit or reading stick.


Q) Do I have to have to read the entire book?

A) No, although ultimately the aim is to read a book a month it is perfectly fine not to have read it. Just come with an open mind to the meet up.

Q) Do I have to contribute (ask/answer questions)?

A) Although it would be great to hear from you, you are more than welcome to listen.

Q) What if my comments aren’t clever?

A) No questions are silly. Every comment is valid. This is a safe space to learn, grow, and explore.

Q) Do I have to have my camera on?

A) Although it would be better for interaction, no it is not compulsory to have your camera on.

Music can be an important tool in controlling your state. You release dopamine when you complete a task or even in anticipation of completing that task. Meeting your sales target, catching your train on time, or when you have your favourite ice cream or listening to your favourite song. The body has 4 “happy” hormones that are naturally released in our body, they are Dopamine, Endorphins, Serotonin, and Oxytocin. When these chemicals are released in our bodies we begin to feel happy and good about ourselves. Check out the Release D Reality spotify playlists to start your day right. There are as selection of playlists with different genres of uplifting and feel good music. If you want to know more sign up to the motivational news letter called Reality Check.
