The Desiderata of Dreamers.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence, so don’t let noisy neighbours spoil it.

When you walk in a room think of everyone as your friend, that’s the advice from my uncle Billy.
Also be aware of the ones who smile to your face and stick TWO FINGERS up behind your back.
Never compare yourself to any model in a fashion magazine, they don’t even look that way and are mostly airbrushed… always feel GOOD ENOUGH.
Never look at anyone’s FACEBOOK life and want to swap it for yours.

Enjoy magical moments that come into your life, and say THANK YOU EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Live YOUR LIFE, not anyone else’s. Exercise, eat well, and if you get the chance MAKE LOVE in many different ways.

Be yourself. Don’t put someone on a pedestal, remember we are all made of the good stuff, so I’m not better than anyone else, and no one is better than me.
Find a Mentor, Someone whose values match yours, a person who will only encourage you to do well.

Treat yourself you deserve it, but don’t do it if it’s to fill the void of a loss in your life. You may end up regretting it.
Sing out loud in the street and dance if you feel like it, yeah go on, dance and sing like you never have before.

When your wake-up call comes, listen, don’t be afraid, and remember it’s all part of living your LIFE PURPOSE.
Being able to forgive is one of the most humbling things you can do. As Oprah said, “You don’t have to have someone to dinner to be able to forgive”.

Never look down, there is nothing for you on the ground, looking down won’t help you reach for the stars when you’re trying to live your dream.

When you do get the chance for love, take your shoes and socks off and dip your toe in the water. If it doesn’t work out, don’t hold back, there are over 7.04 billion humans on the planet… so TRY, TRY again.

Philip Hesketh international speaker suggest you write your own Desiderata. I have and so could you.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

So DREAM BIG, MAKE LOVE and EAT HEALTHY…because IT IS a beautiful world.


Thank God for the Greeks.

Athlete Mo Farah.

From Friday the 27th of July until Sunday the 9th of September 2012 Great Britain shone brighter than it ever has. The energy in the air was different, people were happy, and even the weather brightened up. Countries who are usually at war spoke peacefully to each other and wished each other well. There was LOVE IN THE AIR!!

I haven’t watch television in a long time. I learnt how to do the MOBOT, I watched Sarah Attar and Wojan Shahrkhani Saudi Arabia’s first ever female athletes hold their heads high after all the abuse they received for attending the games. Britain’s Richard Whitehead became the first leg amputee to break the three-hour barrier for a marathon in the Paralympics and Irish sprinter Jason Smyth became the fastest Paralympian on the planet. Even Olympic torchbearers took to carrying their torches everywhere they went. Every day something amazing happened, the whole world joined together as a team, a family.

Do we need something as big as the Olympics and the Paralympics to keep the energy up or can we do it without???

Three of my best ever moments in my life was sharing a sandwich and a drink with an elderly relative of mine, passing work to an associate to help them in their business, volunteering my time for a local cancer charity. No I didn’t receive a Gold Medal for it, but I did receive a sense of satisfaction that I’d given someone a chance to shine.

We can create the ENERGY of the Olympics every single day if we really want to. Be an inspiration everyday. Think!!! Think, how can I be of service in all my relationships (friendships, business etc)?

Will it give you the GOLD MEDAL feeling?? Who knows, who can say, but being of service helps the world go round so let’s keep it spinning.


I’m Bringing SEXY Back!!

With 4 months left to go until we start to look at our New Year Resolutions, how far have you come with the ones you set at the beginning of 2012?

A great way to keep on top of your goals is to take a fresh look at them.

1: Update your goals by rewriting them. Think of the sexiest person alive. You have a dinner date with them in 1 hour, how quick would you be able to make it?
Write your goals with the passion and enthusiasm you would have for your date. If Tyson Beckford and Channing Tatum called me (yes I’m greedy), I’m not hanging around! Your goal will be your date of a lifetime.

2: What will it take for you to keep going with your goals? How will it make a difference in your life? How will what you want to achieve serve others?
I’ve recently looked at my goals as if I had six months to live (don’t panic I’m ok), from now until the end of the year I cross every day off my calendar. Seeing the days go by really makes you look at what little time you have left. This way I don’t put off what I have to do until tomorrow.
It definitely ups the Anti.

3: Track and monitor what you are doing. What are you doing to achieve your goals? Is there anything holding you back? Give yourself a review every 10 days and see how you can make the shift.
Do you have beliefs holding you back? Do you think you are worthy of your goal?

4: Share your goal with a trusted friend. Ask them to hold you accountable for your goals. Maybe they can help you create a strategy to complete what you want to achieve.

Having focus and direction is always a great place to start. I understand that life can get in the way at times when you’re on the road to success. Make your goal clear and put it where you can see it.

Read over them every day so you remind yourself about what you really want to achieve.

Keep focused, disciplined and be gentle with yourself… you’ll get there.
