You are the only person who needs to know why you are doing what you are doing

A few years ago I decided that the time had come for me to changes jobs and to show my boss some respect I told them that I had job interviews to go to. Their response was not the best, they questioned why I was going for those jobs I was going for. I knew that I had over stayed in the job and the time had come for me to move on, I did not take a lot of notice to what my manager was saying because I knew he time had come for me to move on.

There is always a lesson in every unsuccessful adventure

Just like every event I have set up, everything is slow in the first few months, not a lot of tickets are sold but then it all moves very fast closer to the time. However…read more >

Focus on Being a Student of life

It was a cold Sunday morning In the valleys of Wales and my brother and I were being picked up by a priest we had never met before. That Sunday morning we went to a congregation that was deep in the valleys in a little welsh village called Brynaman. I did not know know Peter was going to play an important role in my life; he has since become one of great mentors in life.

Stop looking back, there is nothing there

A received an email from a young man who was struggling in his job, he was asking for me to give him some inspiration to move forward in his life.

A thankful heart is always going to be a joyful heart

In 2004 I was sent to a boarding school away from the comfortable town life, I was really looking forward to ir until I got there and realised that it was 24 kilometres away from the nearest town.

Don’t waste your opportunities

In my previous blog I told you about how my mum risked it all so that my brother and I can have it all, today I will tell you about how some of the young people who had this opportunity wasted it. The first thing that caught my attention was how much educational resources were available, you could go to the library and pick a book of your choice, you did not have to buy exercise books and you could get a paper round to earn yourself some money. My parents told us about the importance of using the educational…read more >
