People pleasing has a bad reputation. It seems when things go wrong we easily blame it for lost direction. But is it so wrong? Every entertainer does it. Every entrepreneur thrives on it. Every athlete can’t pay their bills unless they do it. A surgeon would end in jail if they didn’t do it and […]

Here is the link to our podcast on this: CHANGE 1 CHANGE ALL Did you know that it is hard to feel sad and frown when you look up? Did you know that it’s hard to smile and feel happy when you look down? Did you know that it’s impossible to be unhappy and grateful […]

You should not beat yourself up about addiction. Nature is addicted to the sun. Worms are addicted to the earth. Birds are addicted to flight. It’s all just a part of nature’s magnificent plan. Human beings are. part of nature’s plan too. And so, we are naturally addicted to certain things: air to breathe, food […]


It’s good to remember that coaching is not just about solving a problem or problems – it is about prevention of new problems developing from old. In this video, without sound, I share some of the basics of Innerwealth coaching and how it works.

Distill Bruce Lee into four words and these are them. “Self-Confidence is everything. What is it? Another word for self-confidence is inspiration “when the inner voice speaks louder than the outer voices” But we are attracted to the outer. The opinion of a lover, the approval of children, the trust of a client, the affection […]

I am by trade, a change agent, an agent of change or, as my clients sometimes say, an angel of change, while others call me a spiritual pitbull. Quite a diverse range of terms, and there are others, more x rated. Our world is obsessed with change, hence I am forever occupied doing my work. […]

This is a video with its own sound effects and overlay text. I thought I’d give this a try and see how it goes. It’s more a meditation moment in time than an educational piece but, it’s a change.

It’s Sunday morning, 7am, I’m still in bed. It’s a rare thing, I’m usually up coaching someone or walking the beach doing podcasts, or at the least riding my bike. But today is different. The Taliban are attacking Afghanistan – again – America is pulling out – just like Vietnam – and millions will or […]

Two or more years ago, I recall standing in my garden crest fallen due to water restrictions preventing me from watering my dying grass. Not long after people complained that their houses were burning and the entire bush, it seemed, was alight with bushfire. I look back now in the midst of yet another extension […]

Dishes done with love do not keep us awake. Tea without caffeine is not a cause. Cooking lovingly will soothe us ready for sleep and time spent working before bed on things poetic or artistic don not keep us awake. What we do with love makes us sleep deeper no matter the importance of it. […]

My job is to understand you. Understand what you want. Understand where you have been. Understand why you are here. Understand what you do. Understand where you are going. And with that understanding, help you go there. Sometimes what you’ve done and where you are going, why you are here and who you define yourself […]

There can be lots to be angry about. Anger is a huge and essential part of nature. Anger, like everything in the universe is a gift to you. You can use anger. Anger is not a bad thing. Anger is both good and bad. Anger is simply anger until you judge it. Anger drives change. […]

Nature never apologises. Everything she does, she means to do. There are no accidents in nature. She intends everything that happens. Everything has a purpose. And, one such miracle is disappointment. We project our hopes onto a screen as a movie projects onto a television screen. We have a script, a light for energy, and […]

RALF WALDO EMERSON What is the Meaning of Self-Reliance? I read the other day some verses written by an eminent painter which were original and not conventional. The soul always hears an admonition in such lines, let the subject be what it may. The sentiment they instil is of more value than any thought they […]

Separated from nature I am whole. I feel whole at least. Four walls define me. I am wealthy because my bank defines me so. I am healthy, because I do nothing to interrupt my experience of it. I am good because I do nothing more than watch TV and eat. So easy is life when […]

It will come as a surprise to some readers, but not to those I coach, that nothing is missing in your life. That the universe you live in would never deprive you of what you want, that there are only magic moments, there is order in the chaos we call life. Nothing is missing, it […]

As covid mutates into Alpha and Delta, and the next variant starts to evolve in Indonesia, we have, before our eyes, an Olympic Games of the most competitive reflection, life itself. Naively we turn to medications that remain focussed on solving the first variant, and, in America, they now speak of three or even four […]

You might be sitting down thinking “what am I going to do when Covid restrictions lift and life gets back to “normal.” There are a few things you might need to avoid in making your choices. Most important is to avoid setting your sights on a moving target. It’s the equivalent of playing football when […]

There are three layers of thought: The First Layer  The Second Layer The Third The first layer results in stress and anxiety because it has no certainty of the future. It is purely emotional thinking and even those with the highest levels of EQ, will be stressed and experience anxiety. It is therefore the mission […]
