From Aspiration To Celebration!

This is my first blog post of 2014 and so I thought I’d share one of my own achievements from last year as a way of demonstrating how with a clear vision, a positive mindset and the right kind of action, you too can achieve your goals this year. I have had a...

What’s your Plan?

If you’ve read my previous blog What are you ‘Doing’?, you’ll know that in addition to a strong vision and mindset, success is reliant on taking ‘Positive’ action.  Positive action is not just about activity, it’s about affirmative...

How Positive Is Your Mindset?

If you read my blog What’s Your Vision, you’ll know that when it comes to creating success in business, I place huge importance on having a purpose and an idea of where you are going. In addition to having a vision that motivates you to take action, you need to have a...

This week, during a monthly Success call with one of my team, I asked the question “What defines a leader”.  He answered that leadership is a natural ability that you are either born with or not. I thought this was very interesting. It is true that some people appear...

Life: A game of Snakes and Ladders

I’ve had some great comments, both public and private as a result of my ‘Where is your Success Ladder leaning?’ post – thank you to all of you, it’s great to know you’re reading! I’ve recently taken that same story out on ‘4Sight tour’ at 4Networking breakfast...

Where is your ‘Success Ladder’ leaning?
