How many times have you heard the term 'follow your passion' or 'find your passion'? Probably a few. What you haven't heard is that you don't need to tie your passion to one activity or thing. You can choose to live your whole life with it.

The feeling of being trapped is a horrible feeling, when pushed into the corner we usually make irrational choices that further worsen the situation and prolong the suffering. If you're feeling trapped, with debts increasing and that light at the end of the tunnel is appearing further away then GET HELP! Remove any pride from your situation and reach out; you'll thank me if you do!

How to Stress Less - What Stresses You Out?

As an entrepreneur, therapist, husband, father of two and fitness fanatic, I think it's fair to say that I have a fairly pressure sensitive lifestyle, and fully understand the working pressures and difficulties that most men have when it comes to "attempting" to achieve a work-life-balance.

I spoke to Rou Reynolds (vocals) and Rob Rolfe (drums) on the night of their much anticipated return to the live scene. A homecoming show, on the eve of a stint of global touring hitting Russia, Eastern Europe and the United States before coming back to a huge slot on this year's Reading and Leeds main stage.

Do you ever find yourself struggling to determine what your passions are? Do you ever wonder if you actually have any passions at all? I know how you feel! A year and a half ago my response to the question 'what are your passions?' was a shoulder shrug and a moment of intense panic.

Mid-Twenties Career Crisis

Today's society despite what many believe does pressure many young people to get a job quick, almost without thinking or caring what it is, just so you can say you have one. Sometimes it can be hard to take a moment to consider what could be the most important direction for your future career path.

In a Digital World Are the 4 P's of Marketing Still Relevant?

Tony Fish | Posted 08.06.2014 | UK Tech
Tony Fish

I am neither brave nor stupid enough to suggest that this replace the traditional and time tested marketing mix thinking, but the old framework doesn't embrace for digital as the fundamental and does not allow in its teaching digital first.

How Do I Change Careers When I Don't Know Where to Start?

Adele Barlow | Posted 04.06.2014 | UK Lifestyle

"Too much research, not enough action". Yet another trend is isolation and turning your career change into a never-ending project as opposed to a reality. However, opportunities (especially those related to career change and entrepreneurship) most often come attached to people.

Imagine in your mind a mirror, and imagine that you are standing in front of it. Look into that mirror and see yourself as you are today.

The more I've become the kind of woman I want to be, both in and out of a relationship, the man in my life has become even more of the kind of man that I really appreciate...and he was pretty amazing to begin with!

Passion, Purpose & Invention

I gave a TED talk recently on the theme of 'Passion, Purpose and Invention' as part of the global TEDWomen event. Over the course of writing my talk and thinking about exactly how I found my particular passion, I kept coming back to the paradox of choice.

It's Okay Not to Be Passionate About Your Day Job

Adele Barlow | Posted 12.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Adele Barlow

It is hard - if not impossible - to (immediately) generate a generous salary from volunteering, starting a business, or a blog. I meet a lot of high achievers who suddenly morph into anti-careerists. As Marilyn Monroe said, "A career is wonderful thing, but you can't snuggle up to it on a cold night."

Nelson Mandela: A Hero for the Human Race

Marko Kasic | Posted 17.09.2013 | UK

I am not competent enough to speak about the legacy that will survive Mandela. Nor am I versed in the study of politics to fully appreciate just how extraordinary Mandela's achievements have been. I am qualified to call Mandela one of the most iconic figures of our time and perhaps the 20th century's foremost actor for egalitarianism and liberation.

The B-Team a Turning Point for Business? Not Without the 'Boom'!

Marko Kasic | Posted 21.08.2013 | UK

I sincerely hope the B-Team lets the Millennial Generation lead them and that it doesn't turn into procession of corporate compunction by born again incumbent leaders. The world doesn't need apologies; it needs a new perspective that defines success. It needs a 'Boom'.

Dr. Corey Allan

If there is one area that needs to be more openly discussed among married couples, it's this one... sex. It is easy to believe that no one else has difficulties with this subject. That other couples are having exciting, passionate, 'swinging from the chandeliers' sex every time. Fact is, you couldn't be further from the truth.

You Are What You Read?

Reading is, and always has been, absolutely integral to my life. Both my parents were librarians, and books were everywhere at home. English was my favourite subject at school - what a doss, you just read a book and then wrote about it - and, inevitably, I ended up going on to read English at university.

My Lovers sculpture emerged as a tribute to the transforming power of Love. I was moved to capture Love as a timeless and elemental force, the eternal pull of a tide drawing two people together.

The History of Inspiration

Inspiration is an eternal mystery, the fountain that overflows to send rivulets of ingenuity directly into the minds of the receptive. It is as though an arrow of fire is shot from an invisible bow, cutting through darkness to bring brilliance to its target.

Would the frequently toxic nature of that crowd/team relationship not be improved if the players were really playing for the shirt and the cap, and nothing else?

To the catwalk, where ponies on crack are clip-clopping up and down and down and up a plank of haute couture, where thighs are abolished, a grumpy bob and sunglasses on a stick is God and trends are carved into the tablet of seasonal commandments. London Fashion Week is here.

When you talk about your business and the products or services you are selling, how passionate are you? Does your face light up when talking about work? Are you smiling? Are you full of energy? Is your voice full of purpose?

Whilst it's great to have a really successful or famous person to look to for inspiration, it's taken me a while to realise how great it is to have inspiration so close to home.
