In this special interview I have the privilege of talking with Nathan Parker who recently lost one hand and severely damaged the other in a road accident. This would be hard enough for anyone to face but when your childhood dream has been to become a fighter pilot it means your whole life takes on a new reality.
During our discussion Nathan shares his incredible insights about mindset, focusing on what really matters and the importance of reaching out for support. There are so many great messages in this interview so download it now and let Nathan’s story inspire you to another level in your own life.

Knowing the origins of certain words is incredibly powerful.
Decision comes from the Latin word ‘decisio’ – which means ‘to cut off from’. Any serious decision in your life will always involve ‘cutting off’ from something.
The decision to get fit means cutting off from laziness and crap food.
The decision to have better relationships with more dynamic people means cutting off from the relationships that are holding you back.
In some ways it’s like the principle of ‘opportunity cost’ that you may remember from high school economics. A decision means saying ‘no’ to something else.
So here is the key question…. What do you need to cut off from in your life now?
What decision do you really need to make? Have you been avoiding the big decisions because they represent fear, uncertainty or loss in some way.
The price of a decision is the price of admission into the next level of your evolution.
Cmon…it’s time to move. Make that decision.

Blame is such a waste of your energy.
Justice is different. Justice is about recognising a genuine wrong and seeking things to be changed or restored. Blame is different.
In seminars and when working with people individually I make the point that when you use blame this happens:
1. You are probably right. The person, experience or situation is probably pretty awful.
2. But now what? Once you blame it changes nothing except that it keeps you up at night.
3. It massively disempowers you because now you have given someone else power over your outcomes and choices.
One of the absolute keys to personal growth is the letting go of blame. Once you release people or experience in the choice of forgiveness you are free to get on with your life.
C.S. Lewis once said that the great irony of hell is that gates are wide open.
He meant that when we end up in a personal hell of blame we could walk out at any time. The gates are always open.
Take your power back.
