Beware Of ‘The Bonk’

Are you familiar with 'The Bonk'?  Yes, your first thought may be that I've been hacked and this email will be littered with unsolicited dodgy porn (it isn't, so you can stop scrolling for it!)  No, The Bonk is that feeling you get during the afternoon when it feels like your gears are grinding to a halt and your energy levels are almost non-existent. You're running on fumes.  You get agitated.  You get snappy with people.  Motivation to do anything that requires even the slightest bit of concentration feels like a form of torture & even if i offered to train you personally 1-on-1 for free for an hour, you'd probably tell me

Nuisance Neighbour From Hell

A couple of years ago, I had this neighbour living next door. A major pain in the arse! She thought it was perfectly acceptable to play music at full blast, with all the windows open, keeping everyone in the apartment block up. Through the week it wasn't too bad. She had to work & get up early each morning & thankfully avoided partying on a school night. but come weekend.... the 'fun' would start. 'chav-tastic' music at ear bleeding volume (no wonder she couldn't hear the banging on the walls!) On one occasion, she had at least 40-50 people in the apartment and in the car park to the rear, leaning on other peoples cars, drinking, smoking

Mindset Makeover

So yesterday I explained how so many men fail to deliver the outcomes they're striving for, simply by focusing on the wrong aspect they should. Quick recap for those that missed it. Too many people focus on changing their behaviours, because behaviours are directly related to outcomes. The problem is, without fundamentally changing your mindset, which is what your behaviours are directly related to, you can't effect the changes to your outcomes. You're basically skipping a step, which is also, unfortunately, the most important step too. A Mindset Shift is required to get the process going, which usually comes about

What Is Your ‘Fire’?

I'm going to be pretty blunt with you, so those of a 'sensitive snowflake' nature, you may want to leave now. What does it take to get you fired up? I mean what does it really take to ignite the fire inside you and finally do something you keep telling yourself and others that you're going to do? It doesn't have to be about how you physically look or feel. Anything at all that you keep telling yourself you want to do, but never get round to actually accomplishing? What does it take to successfully reach your desired outcome? So

“King Kong Ain’t Got Nuthin’ On Me”

Last night I chilled out and watched 'Training Day', the awesome Denzil Washington film. I hadn't seen it for a while & I'd forgotten just how good Washington was in it. Unless you've been under a rock for years, you'll know the plot. Washington plays a dodgy narcotics cop that has upset the Russian Mob whilst on a trip to Vegas. He has to give them a $1-million before midnight to make things right, or he's a dead man. He ends up taking a clean-as-a-whistle rookie out with him for his first day or 'Training Day' whilst he's doing his dodgy stuff, getting the money together to

Serious Case Of Road Rage

Couple of days ago I was stuck in some pretty crap traffic caused by a lorry carrying hay bails that had caught fire. Fortunately I keep a good selection of audiobooks and podcasts on me so I was able to do some mindset study as I listened to a book called 'The Code Of The Extraordinary Mind' (Awesome book btw). Whilst I sat in the traffic, I noticed people in cars around me getting frustrated and aggressive, particularly when I was the the slip road near to where the road closure had taken place. I watched as cars mounted grass

The Pitch Is Strong With This One

So as The Legend Ric Flair would say... "WOOOOOOOOOO!" Yesterdays email right? Serious fire contained within! I did warn you though! After yesterday i received a couple of responses which included "FUCK YOU!" (Always a favourite!) "How The Fuck Do You Know..?" (Again, a personal fave) "Thanks for making me feel like shit for the rest of the day" (A new one to be honest) "I'm done, please take me off your list" (Instructions on how to unsubscribe sent in reply. Did they use them? HINT: You're probably reading this now!) So those of you that are still here, congratulations. Either you identified with some of the things

What Dollard, Dobb & Co Taught Me

When I was in college, I studied quite a few different subjects. Of course there was the standard Physical Education A Level you'd expect someone interested in sport and fitness to take. But alongside that, I studied sociology, psychology and also philosophy I loved social sciences, particularly psychology and the theory behind human behaviour. 'Why we think the things we do.' 'Do the things we do.' 'Or don't' on many occasions, 'Even when we know deep down we should!' I remember discussing the theory behind people that became aggressive because of frustration. It's actually called 'The Frustration/Aggression Hypothesis' and was proposed way back in 1930's by Dollard, Doob, Miller, Mower, and Sears. It goes some way to explain why some people get angry and confrontational when they are denied success

Bio What Now!?

Biofeedback

Creating 'Bespoke' Through 'Biofeedback.'     You may be wondering what it is, why it’s important and what the ’ does it have to do with you? All relevant questions I may add! The purpose of this short article is to help explain what it is & why it’s something I focus on throughout my coaching programmes.   For a truly successful transformation ‘THAT LASTS’, we need to look at ourselves as what we truly are, ‘Individual’. Yes, we have many characteristics that are similar and we react to many things in much the same way, but at the same time
