We understand that you might not want to take our word for it, so how about Joseph McClendon III, one of Tony Robbins closest friends and peak performance coaches? As humans we’re programmed to trust people we know and figures of authority and they don’t come with much more authority than Joseph McClendon. So here is a great interview conducted by my friend and successful PR coach Maritza Duncan.
I was looking through some old pictures today. One of them is of a pretty young girl aged around 13. She is leaning back in the sunshine, laughing and she looks happy, as every 13 year old should.
I know that this girl had a hard time in the years that followed this photograph and ended up addicted to drugs, in jail and with serious long term health conditions to contend with as a result. I know that to this day she suffers because of the immediate repercussions and as a result of the prejudices of other people.
What first struck me as I looked at this picture, was that at the time it was taken, she had her whole life ahead of her. She could have been, had or done anything she wanted with the right tools and guidance and it made me feel sad for her and the things she has missed out on.
Then the real penny dropped. This girl is no different to any of us on any given day. The point we are at is a result of the sum of all our days, thoughts and actions to date. Where we go from here is up to us, we have the power to choose our future in every instant.
New Year is traditionally a time for thinking about rebirth and yet we can do this any day we wish. Why don’t you think today about where you want to be tomorrow, next week, next year? Don’t let the past be an excuse to avoid the brilliant future you could choose to have. Imagine being able to meet yourself as a child, wouldn’t you want to know that this child was going to have a wonderful life thanks to you? Whilst we are all a day older than we were yesterday, today is still the day it always was and will be. What better time to decide to start a bright new tomorrow than today?
Did you know it’s impossible to feel bad if you smile?
Even if your smile is merely a forced upward movement of the corner of your lips, you will feel better. Honest!
There are scientific reasons for it. The muscles that are moved when you smile, exert pressure on your brain, which triggers a release of the happy hormone, Serotonin, which in turn induces a chemical feeling of well being. It won’t solve all your problems, but feeling better has to be a good start surely! Next time you are in a temper, feeling frustrated or sad, give it a try. Put a big smile on your face, the bigger and sillier the better, and notice the feeling of well being that it brings with it. Catching sight of yourself doing it is often enough to make you laugh out loud, by which point you’ve really broken into the cycle of whatever you were feeling, only moments before.
The most important thing in this exercise, is the fact that you are putting yourself back in control of your emotions. Rather than allowing which ever negative emotion was over taking you to dictate your behaviour, you are interrupting the pattern and giving yourself enough time to decide, how you want to feel.

This is a real feel good video which has been watched by nearly 700,000 people. Hope it inspires you as it did me. It’s all in your thoughts !!
Have you heard of an American golfer, aged 14, called Zach Nash? Well, I hadn’t, and even if he continued his career and became top of his sport, it is quite possible I never would have given my disinterest in the sport. Until that is, he displayed a quality so rare these days that it is newsworthy all the way across the Atlantic – honesty.
This young man, won a junior PGA tournament in Wisconsin – I imagine that’s quite a big deal for him if my 12 year old is any gauge on competitiveness. Then he discovered that he had in fact played the tournament with an extra club in his bag and promptly sent his medal back, and disqualified himself for having had an unfair advantage. I can’t hand on heart say that I would do the same thing in his position and I suspect not many people would. Isn’t it nice to think though that there are still some people in this modern world for whom honesty is so important.
I might never hear of Zach Nash the golfer again, but you can be sure I will remember the story of the boy who was so honest he disqualified himself after winning the tournament!
