Am I Introvert, Extrovert or Both?
In this podcast I examine the issues of introversion and extroversion. They are so often misunderstood or used judgmentally. It's funny how when you're loud, people tell you to be quiet, but when you're quiet, people ask you what's your problem! Fact is, both are useful ways of being, in the appropriate context. We need both.

How to Change Your Life
Here I talk about changes in your life, how to make them happen in such a way that things turn out well for you. Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change. Change is a scary word because it means stepping outside the relatively safe or comfortable space we have managed to situate ourselves in. Socrates said that the secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Interview with Wallace Huey
An important milestone occurred 11 years ago when Wallace Huey, an Irish life coach, got in touch with me and suggested I add the dimension of a coaching Question & Answer to the weekly newsletter. This feature was a big success, and Wallace moved on to become a co-director of our company. Together we created Trans4mind Training and in this interview Wallace describes the benefits for participants, both at home and in the workplace, and how this contributes to Trans4mind's vision.
Loyalty & Inner Peace
The first topic is about staying true to a person, including behind their back. Loyalty is more than a word you pay lip-service too, it's a way of life. And then there's Inner Peace. Even in the midst of life's many storms, we have the capacity to stand in the center of our own peace. It's not always easy, but it's certainly possible.
Karma and Ideals
In this podcast I discuss Karma, an Indian word but actually a universal principle that most religions and philosophies address. It is simply living with the consequences of our actions, and hopefully learning and moving forward as a consequence. And in the context of our Karma, as we live our life, each of us develop ideals: what we stand for. So let's look further at these two concepts: Karma and Ideals.
Meaningful Relationships, Romance & Marriage
This podcast is about meaningful relationships, how we can turn such a connection into a romantic relationship, and how to further develop that into a successful marriage. And also, what can go wrong. Love is a paramount aspect of all our lives and so it's very important to get it right.
This podcast is about Humility. Humility does not mean that you think less of yourself. It means you think of yourself less, as Ken Blanchard said. It's about keeping an open mind, to learn from others, your experience and your own inner knowing - not having to be right all the time. Not a bad principle to start implementing in your life on January 1st, if you haven't already.

This podcast is about YOU - the unique magical being that is yourself, and come to that, the unique magical being that is each and every person. It's about moving to the point where we can sincerely show kindness and compassion to all people when we recognize them as divine and special beings, just like ourselves.

The Value of Loving Service
Serving others in a loving way can actually transform our own lives. In serving others we discover our essence, our truth, our love. To be of loving service we draw on our conscience, our religion and our values.

Shine Your Light
This podcast is about shining your light, the light of the love in your heart, and how that applies to the attitudes we adopt in our everyday living experience. Love is our spiritual source, it’s our essential nature, and it is our purpose to express it in loving service.
Becoming Happy - Interview with Errol A. Gibbs
Happiness is something that all of us want - naturally, since it’s a fundamental human need. But all too often being genuinely happy is a hard target to reach.

Well, we have an opportunity today to gain some key new insights about happiness, because I’m speaking to Errol A. Gibbs, author of Discovering Your Optimum Happiness Index. This book offers interactive strategies that guide us towards identifying and achieving our happiness goals.

The Holistic Approach to Personal Wellbeing
Health is more than diet and exercise... How you live, what you think, your attitude and how you respond to stress are equally important. We need an holistic approach, developing our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual abilities.

Discovering the Spiritual Path
Our spiritual nature is a wonderful aspect that we each have as a human being. Yes, every single one of us, even our dotty neighbor and especially our rebellious child. And it is the challenge we each have, to rediscover and express our true self in this life. Only then will we die content.
