Life is short, so...

Live

Make a Difference

 What gives your life meaning and purpose? What makes it the grand adventure it’s meant to be?           We  want to grow and develop; realize our ‘God-given potential’; become all we’re capable of being.

Is there anything that can be done about this? The answer is ‘Yes’! – there are resources, ideas, beliefs that can change your life and they are available now. I am first and foremost, a Christian. I spend my time speaking, writing and working with individuals, groups and organisations to bring about positive change through the application of Christian principles’

Life doesn’t have to be about becoming better than everyone else in our field but it ought first to be about bringing out the best in ourselves and then each other.   One thing is sure, none of us can afford the luxury of a negative thought life. Like attracts like; cynicism, fear of failure, despair and other similar negative emotions  breed more of the same. It’s a downward, destructive spiral but it can be reversed.
