How Doing This One Thing Can Make Life So Much Easier

So many of us are afraid of doing this one thing. Without it we get nowhere, or we get somewhere slowly; and the road was probably a treacherous one when it didn’t need to be that treacherous. We’re afraid to do this one thing because we’re afraid of how we might look in the eyesContinue reading “How Doing This One Thing Can Make Life So Much Easier”

When the Dream Becomes a Reality

I have mentioned before, in a previous post, how, when I signed along the dotted line of a recording contract, the dotted line I had envisioned for nine years, I was overcome by an unexpected numbness. I had caught up with my dream; it had caught up with me. We were intertwined, dancing together, andContinue reading “When the Dream Becomes a Reality”

Others Can’t Provide You with Self-Belief

I’ve already gone into some detail about what I did to finally get a recording contract. Like, for example, how I envisioned the end result, as if it had already come to pass, and how I shared my passion with the world. When people asked, “What do you want to do?” I would proudly answer,Continue reading “Others Can’t Provide You with Self-Belief”

Stubborn Persistance

Being stubborn might not be an attractive character trait, but it can prove invaluable to dreamers. I was often told, “If everything got handed to you on a plate, it would lose its value.” Being in hot pursuit of what we want, thinking about it on a regular basis, being unbelievably stubborn that we refuseContinue reading “Stubborn Persistance”

Don’t Overprotect Your Dreams

When we find the courage, the motivation and the inspiration to go for something, we need to protect these attributes from outer and inner influences. It’s so easy to let them slip through our fingers, and when that happens there’s a danger of us turning our backs on our dreams and aspirations for good.  WhenContinue reading “Don’t Overprotect Your Dreams”

The Way of Visualisation – Part 1

In a previous post, I mentioned how I had used visualisation to help my dream come true. (If you read that post then you will know I ended up not wanting the dream when I got it, but what I did worked, regardless.) I thought I would use this post (and future ones, as IContinue reading “The Way of Visualisation – Part 1”

Which Future Do You Really Want?

Be careful which future you you’re chasing. I was overly ambitious, and it was devastating to my health, both physical and mental. This was mainly when I was in my late teens and early twenties. The trouble was I thought I was certain I knew what I wanted. (Certainty brings rigidity, and if we’re rigidContinue reading “Which Future Do You Really Want?”

It’s Never Too Late to Start Living

I recently ran an adult class, here in Taipei, called Life and Death. I designed it with the sole intention of shedding more light on death. I’m not there to teach anything per se; I’m a student just like everybody else. I feel like I’m there to facilitate a discussion, guide it and direct it.Continue reading “It’s Never Too Late to Start Living”

A Message for You

“Don’t fall for the trick. You’re not alone. You never have been. You never will be. I know it’s easy for you to think you’re in a one-I show. Your pain feels so personal. So close. But I will say it again, You’re not alone. ‘Then show me,’ I hear you say. I do. IContinue reading “A Message for You”
