Focus Act Succeed Blog Relaunch!

Focus Act Succeed Blog Relaunch!

Hi, It’s October already. October, the month of the Focus Act Succeed blog relaunch! It’s been a while since my last post in February, and a lot has changed since then, not least of which… is me. I’ve spent this last year working hard on myself, specifically, my brain, learning about what’s been going on in there, and how to be more in charge of it, instead of letting it be in charge of me. I’d seriously lost track of…

Poems of Love written in June 1942

Poems of Love written in June 1942

Poems of Love written in June 1942 I was sorting out drawers of stuff a week or so ago that I hadn’t looked at since we moved house back in 2006. I pulled out untouched old jewellery boxes and all my cheap tat, and some medium tat and some mystery might or might not be tat. Stuck to the bottom of my Gran’s red jewellery box, the one with turning ballerina and scary music, was an envelope. Very mysterious. Surprised…

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

A belated Happy New Year to one and all! How are things going for you so far? It’s been an interesting four weeks for me. When I compare where I was mentally at the end of November to where I am now, it’s like I’m looking at a different person. How did I get here? It went like this….

Who is Tony Robbins?

Who is Tony Robbins?

Who is Tony Robbins? You’ve heard people talking about cannabis being a gateway drug? Well, it’s maybe not the best analogy, but Tony Robbins had proved to be my gateway. Completely unbeknownst to him, he’s provided me with the lever that has allowed me to find a way into my own mind. So who is Tony Robbins? It went like this. Here’s me, headless chicken, running around waving my arms in the air. ( Word of advice, don’t ever Google…

Information Overload

Information Overload

Information overload There’s a fine line between lots of lovely research material and information overload. I say this with absolute certainty. I crossed that line. About two weeks ago I now suspect. Rather embarrassingly it took me until last night to work that out. And I had help. It’s amazing how the blindingly obvious sometimes isn’t!! As a reaction to the black pit of despair that I’d been wallowing in for a while, I have committed 100% to this process,…

What the hell is wrong with me?

What the hell is wrong with me?

What the hell is wrong with me? I know, I know, probably loads of things, probably nothing. It’s all about the discovery right? Taking charge, being actively involved in my thoughts so I can spend the rest of my life doing the things I want to do. So what the hell is wrong with me? Well bloody hell. I reached 50 this summer. But apart from the odd 5 minute skirmish with personal development, it coming out a battered looser…

I am enough!

I am enough!

I am enough. Try saying it. Go on, I dare you. I’d never said it before Monday. Now I can’t stop saying it. That’s one of the joys of the internet. Coming across gems like this. Okay, ignorance alert (mine, not yours!) I’ve never come across Marisa Peer before. Probably wouldn’t have if I hadn’t picked up a link from a book I was reading. (More about that in another post)

What did you want to be when you grew up?

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I’ve got a rubbish memory. Oh, I’m not an amnesiac or anything. But recalling events and placing them accurately in my timeline is a challenge. I’m okay with nailing down things in the last few days, maybe the last couple of weeks. But the past is…well, it’s the past. Last couple of weeks, recently, a few weeks/months/years ago, when I was little, when I was at college, when I lived in,before we were married…that’s as accurate as it gets. I…

This is how you change

This is how you change

This is how you change. Focus Act Succeed. Three words out of hundreds of thousands. Three words I’ve chosen to be the key to unlocking the rest of my life. That’s why I’ve started this site, to start unlocking my life. To find out what works and what doesn’t. What’s snake oil, what’s pure gold and what happens next. And if something works, why does it work? What’s the key? Because if it works for me, there’s no reason why…
