You've set yourself a challenge. You have taken advice and chosen a goal personal to you, something you have always wanted to achieve, and made sure it is challenging but achievable. Now it is time to deliver but, you have a history of letting your training demons take over and wreck your chances of success.
So perhaps a drama school that endeavours to train its students how to be an actor, should enlighten graduates as to just what is possible. Promotional work, corporate work, work that uses the skills they have learnt as actors to engage with the public. Somebody has to wear that Sponge Bob Square pants suit in the shopping mall on a Saturday afternoon. How much better for all concerned if it's somebody who can really make it look fun.
I was talking to one of the other facilitators at The Parent Practice, Juliet Richards, this week about going back to school.... As you do when the summer holidays haven't even begun! She said her teenagers will still need some help and 'encouragement' in September to get themselves organised, but it will be easier than it has been before. They're used to it, after all.
Ramadan demands that Muslims be positively active and dynamic in their community and wider society. As a people of faith we have a unilateral obligation to work for the good of all. We have the obligations of good-neighbourliness, of being concerned for others, to share their joys and feel their pains and to provide support and help wherever we can.
I'll be doing quite a few hours to help me prepare mentally and get used to the track before my debut. Because Le Mans is a street circuit, I've only been able to drive the rack in a simulator before, because it would be impossible to drive around in a racing car outside of testing or the race itself.
Training is often viewed as only applicable for learning new skills and so employers do not always deem it necessary for some roles. The reality is that training delivers so much more. Absolutely, it builds new skills and increases knowledge - however, it also helps to reinforce the confidence in individuals, helping them to recognise their own capabilities.
Getting superhero lean isn't easy. It isn't even moderately easy... but that's a good thing. If it was easy, everyone would have a next level six-pack and that would make you just another person in great shape. As the challenge is hard and the results take effort, few people will achieve their dream body.
