A client recently called me up on a Monday morning and said 'Josh. I'm sat at my desk, I'm all geared up to make the most of this working week and yet...
Confidence is something that is much harder to see - at first anyway. It's nestled inside us, and even when it's hibernating and seemingly nowhere to be seen: it's there. The trick is nudging it awake and allowing it to be the driving force that gets us to do the things we want to do but feel a little (or a lot) afraid to do.
Your true strength and character is revealed in how you rise up from your battles. Triumph isn't given, it is earned from how you make your comeback into the spotlight and how you show the world that you are ready to return. It's in how you bring light and inspiration by giving your best, authentic self to your craft and audience fearlessly, despite the odds. And JoJo did just that.
Therefore, without any excuses, I should do my chores. Yet before I get to them, my mum has already taken over and would rather I studied. I only hope that she releases her book soon.
I hadn't appreciated the importance of precedents until recently. Picture a time you were lost in the countryside. In a choice of trails, which on...
We spend so much time thinking about what others can do for us - or what they aren't doing for us - that we end up strangling off our own energy in the process. Once you learn to give you start to get - physically, mentally, or emotionally.
Do you ever feel like it's groundhog day? i.e. you are doing the same old thing each and every day?!... Here are five easy steps to help you change things around a little...
This feeling of thinking you have made a difference is something special and indescribable and I therefore encourage everyone reading this to fight every injustice and try and make a difference because we all have the power to do so. I know it sounds cheesy but if you really want to change something big you can if you just try.
New age spiritual language has become a bog of well meaning terms that in effect mean whatever you need or want them to need, or, in fact, nothing. As much as we all want to be the light, find our truth and let it all go, whilst mantra-ing our ass down to the local yoga dojo, it's sometimes not that simple.
We've all fallen prey at some point to the excuse that there aren't enough hours in a day. There aren't enough days in a week, weeks in a month, months in a year and so forth. What would you say if I told you that I've found them?
The festive period is over and if you are like me, today is probably the first day of getting back into your normal routine. When I say normal routine, I mean waking up around the same time each day to go to work and repeating the same actions day in and day out.
This year, we want to reclaim New Year New You. While it used to be terrible nonsense peddled by magazines and diet companies for us to reinvent ourselves into shiny, thin people, we see it as a month of renewal and positive change. We want to embrace the idea of change but promote it in a sustainable way. After all, January didn't do anything wrong - we have.
"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" These words from Mary Oliver never fail to inspire me. When I think of my favourite responses to that question, the stories behind the following entrepreneurs would top the list...
Don't get me wrong - I wrote the book on positively, and live it every single day, but what I'm referring to are the hoards of sheep banging on about a quote someone quite brilliant said and then doing zero to back it up; you need action to achieve things, just pressing 'share' is not enough.
Finally, we've made it to the the end of 2015 - a long awaited year for so many of us working in international development. There have been negotiations aplenty, 17 new Global Goals and ambitious commitments.
Closure. That's what this final Team SCA blog post is going to be all about. Why? Well, earlier this month we had our very last outing as a team at the Getty Images Gallery in London, where they are currently showing a very special exhibition dedicated to our time in the Volvo Ocean Race.
