Earlier this week, I saw a post on Facebook from one of my clients, Juanita Jay Johnson (a coach, copywriter and content creator). I met Jay a few months ago at the Business Startup Show when she came and listened to a 45 minute talk I gave. It was a busy, noisy environment, but Jay heard something. I mean really heard something. It's a story of the instant awakening that's there for every person, including you, and all the people who matter to you. When I read her post on Facebook, I knew I had to share it with you.

Humanity is in ‘final exam’ as to whether or not it qualifies for continuance in Universe.”

Many of the biggest problems we face in our lives, and in society as a whole are the result of belief systems; habitual patterns of thought that often diverge wildly from reality, and can be profoundly limiting. In this article we’re going to explore the distinction between belief systems (BS) and facts. You’re also going to discover why aligning yourself with fact can be a massive leverage point for creating results.
People often ask me what the difference is between thoughts, thinking and the *principle* of Thought. A few months ago, I was answering a question from one of my Coach Training clients and came up with a metaphor to describe the principles behind clarity, and how they create our perception. You can listen to that audio below…
This week I’m on holiday, basking in the sun on the island of Rhodes, surrounded by the sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea. I’ve been working hard for the past couple of months, doing stuff I love (except when not), and now it’s time for a pause. Next week we’ll continue exploring The Secrets of Coaching with Clarity, but this week I want to do something a little different…
“Every outbreak across the globe today stems from a descendant of the medieval plague.”
To understand the costly and life-damaging phenomenon of workplace stress, it's useful to have a brief look at history. The bubonic plague was once the scourge of Europe, killing millions and destroying entire communities. For centuries, people were powerless to stop this devastating illness. Why? Because they didn’t understand what caused it. Today, we know that the bubonic plague is a bacterial infection, spread by fleas, but in medieval times, this fact was invisible to them. Medieval doctors believed it was caused by “poisoned air” (similarly, the word “malaria” literally means “bad air”, a hangover from early misunderstandings about how the illness was spread).

The later chapters of the manifesto will include a vision of our future as individuals, businesses, societies and as an entire species. Here's chapter 3…
