The Lost Art of Being Yourself - what you need to do

It would seem in the modern world that we are always being told what to do. We have so many ‘experts’ who tell us that we need to do it ‘this’ way and if you do it ‘that’ way then you are totally wrong. It can be advice on your diet, your fitness, you golf, your relationships. I am not saying that all advice is wrong Far from it Listening to the experiences of other people who have been through similar situations to yourself can be hugely beneficial IF You take that information and...

Vin Harris - The Monk who drove a Ferrari EP39

We have had a common theme on this show over the past few months which has focused around the concept of ‘Attention’. The key principle being that your attention is either in a useful or useless place for the task you have in front of you. So often we are the victim of a mind wandering almost everywhere other than the place we want it to be. We accept that we should train our body but too little attention is paid to how we can train our attention and more importantly how we can react to...


EP38 Gary Nicol – The Lost Art of Putting

Build Your Tribe - the importance of others

‘You will by and large become what those closest to you EXPECT you to become’ was a phrase I heard a number of years ago from the great motivational speaker Tony Robbins. I couldn’t agree more. People around us have a HUGE impact on us but most of the time we don’t actually recognise it. The effect is going on below the surface. It is happening at an unconscious level. A lot of our behaviour just ‘mirrors’ what others close to us are doing. During this podcast we take a really good...
