Not everything we believe to be true is true and not everything we believe to be untrue is an untrue, it all depends on perspective. What influences you? Who influences you? Who do you influence? I ask these questions because it’s important for us to realise the influences in our lives and how they dictate […]


Imagine that you woke up tomorrow morning and you find out that everything you wish for had come true. You are Bruce Almighty. Imagine it, and consider – what would you do? Remember that everything you wish for has consequences, so if you wish for world peace it could cause an economic effect in many […]

Does it take long

When we begin anything new we usually have the tendency to jump in head first and try and do as much as possible, wanting to see results straight away.
