Hello there. Do you feel successful, yet not really content? As if it should be more rewarding? Many of us can devote years or decades to being successful, however that’s defined, only to feel disappointed when we finally achieve it.
Maybe success has been defined incorrectly? What’s the point having lots of money and fancy toys if you have nobody to play with?
What’s the point reaching the top of your industry if you’re not happy? Or if you’ve lost your health, or family, or have few friends, and/or no partner?
Does money buy happiness?
That’s the story we’ve been told time and time again. What’s the truth? Well, if we don’t have enough money for our needs, like food, transport and accommodation, then sure, more money does help! But beyond that?
Studies have shown that having a great deal more money doesn’t make any difference. Once you have a nice home and car, and enough for holidays now and then, more and more money just doesn’t make a difference.
Often, it just leads to more stress: managing and insuring assets. Worrying about losing them, keeping up with the Jonses. Having to replace them every year or two just to stay in fashion. Wondering if there’s any more to life.
More evidence comes from studies of lottery winners. Most end up broke, and a third end up bankrupt. That’s not quite what the adverts tell us!
What does success mean for you?
Not for the world, or Bill Gates, or Richard Branson, but you personally. Have you ever sat down and answered that question? It can be very illuminating.
I’ve been through this myself. I was climbing the ladder of success, and achieved a fair amount, but wasn’t really happy, and felt very stressed out.
So began a very long journey back into balance, where I don’t spend all my time on any particular area of life. This leaves me with enough time to pursue a career, pay the bills, and also stay fit and healthy, with life long friends.
The funny thing is that I’m happier now than I ever was before, despite living a much quieter life. I experience great joy and contentment every single day, yet I still have plenty of challenges to deal with. However, they’re much less stressful.
Does that sound like something you might appreciate? Are you ready?
If not now, then when?
I can Help
I’ve spent most of my life looking for the best ways to live, in areas like health, fitness, relationships, spirituality, stress, and emotions. Initially for my own selfish benefit, but later on, with a view to share what works with others.
I might not be a master in all of these areas, but I’m very comfortable and content with my life. Actually, I’ve never been happier. There are always ways to improve, but it’s nice to be happy right where I am. I don’t make myself unhappy because I don’t have the latest shiny object, or expensive toy.
In other words, when it comes to coaching, I actually walk my talk.
I like toys and gadgets as much as anybody, but I can be happy without them.
Speaking of coaching, I’m a trained Life Coach, having studied at Coach U a few years ago. I’ve also trained in a lot of other areas.
You can find out more about me and my qualifications on this page.
But this is not about me, it’s about you. Are you happy with your life? How has success worked out for you? Is it worth it? Would you like a more rewarding life?
If so, I can help you get there.

You can also mix and match, depending on timing.

p.s. it’s easy for me to say I’m a good coach! To read what clients have said about my coaching, visit the feedback page.
