Hey folks,

How is everyone doing? I hope you’re all well.

2 weeks left until my fitness/bodybuilding competition at the WBFF European Championships taking place on November 9th 2013.

You may find that the show is titled as:  European Fitness and Model Spectacular – London UK – November 9 – I can confirm to you all that this is the same show.

The last few weeks have been a real learning experience for me. What do I mean exactly?

Well, I’ve learnt that I need to improve on my breathing for one. Through sports massages, yoga and stretching, I’ve learnt how tight my body has become over the last few years through bodybuilding and a lack of work on my flexibility. I’ve drastically changed my physique through nutrition and different methods of training  that I’m not used to and it’s made me really think about how amazing our bodies are and how we can change them with just a thought and some persistent work.

It’s almost as if I was suppose to do this show to become more in tune with my body and help others become more in tune with their body.

I’m 4 weeks into my holistic massage course and the amount of knowledge I’ve learnt already is amazing. I have a burning desire to share with you all what I am learning as I know it will benefit you.

I posted the below on my Facebook page and want to share it with you all….


Sometimes I sit back and ask myself:

“David, why do you endure all this pain in gym and eat clean all the time, you should be out there with all the other young people your age partying and boozing”

Then my higher self kicks in and say’s:

“David, through consistent training and clean eating you have learnt the basic principles to make one successful in this life time – Discipline, Persistence, Will power, Determination and the hunger to keep going even when it feels like you aren’t hungry no more”

Within that though, I have learnt balance – The balance between enjoying life and not letting fitness take over.

Through accomplishing my goals, dreams and aspirations I will also show others that they too can accomplish whatever it is they want from life.

It doesn’t take hard work, it takes smart work. The moment you call something hard your subconscious mind kicks in and everything you’ve ever associated with hard in this life time will boot up (as if it is a program on auto pilot)

This is why you need to be careful with the words you use down to the thoughts you think!

Like I always say though, never believe the information I give you – Go out and research it so you can find the truth within what I’m saying for yourselves!

The start of something new…



Today I’m was just throwing some random thoughts out there and letting you into my crazy world.

I’ve been blogging for over a year now and it’s lead me to want to write a book. I never knew I had writer skills to be fair and the blog started as just a random website to people now emailing me for advice or telling me thank you for a blog I’ve written. Truth be told, that’s strange to me or weird in a way as I never knew I had it in me.

What’s happened recently is, I’ve been searching into what life is about, why we are here as humans and trying to find out who I am as an individual – Search and you shall find right…Well, I have been searching and let’s just say that at the age of 24 I have found my life’s purpose and I now I feel I have it in me to help other find theirs.

Life isn’t all about the materials goods but living in the western world you would think that is the case!

I haven’t even got started with the things I want to share with you guys on this blog, but life has happened and my priorities have needed adjusting –  But stick with me as I may be able to help you in someway, shape or form and if I do that, then I am living my true life’s purpose…

You are all light…It’s time we took our light and shined it upon all the darkness and negativity around us in the world today.

Love, Peace and Blessings as always

David Richards




Hello friends,

I hope this reaches you all in good spirit.

It doesn’t feel like it’s been a week since I wrote the last quote of the week, time really appears to be speeding up. Although the clocks are functioning as normal, could we be perceiving reality differently as a consequence of some type of consciousness shift?…That’s just me thinking deeply….ANYWAY…

Another Monday, another quote…

I’ve been feeling real motivated recently and filled with lot’s of positive energy and if my blog allows me to share this positivity with you guys via the “World Wide Web” not only is it my duty but also my pleasure…

“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence”

How many of you can truly say your living to the best of your ability? How often do you tackle a task with 100% effort.

You may be working towards something and expecting a 100% return but the reality is, if your only putting in 70%, you will get back a 70% return. You reap what you sow is a very true saying.

Let’s say fat loss for example. If you’re eating clean day in day out, but you’re not training consistently and getting adequate rest to recover, you won’t be seeing the results you are after. Why? Not because your eating isn’t right but because you’re not doing everything it takes to get there…You’re not giving it 100%.  Makes sense right?

Putting your all into something isn’t easy though and it does require you to have heart and a ton of effort.

I’d be lying if I said I gave 100% every time. However, I never kid myself if I don’t get the results I’m after (especially if I know I didn’t give it my all)

In a situation like this, we have no one to blame but ourselves and once we take responsibility for our actions we take responsibility and control of our life’s…Think about that for a moment!

It comes down to how hungry you are and how much you’re willing to eat your way through the hardship that comes with being successful. It doesn’t “Just Happen” over night and once you have accepted this, it makes your journey a whole lot easier because you are mentally prepared for whatever challenges you may face.

Once you realise that you have the power to achieve whatever it is you want out of life, your perception on reality changes dramatically and you perceive things like pain as your friend. I see pain as someone wanting to help me by making me stronger and never giving up. My pain keeps me going….

Personal excellence may be live right next door to you or a few doors down. Heck, it might not even live in your area…

All this is irrelevant though for as long as you have the will, the desire and the urge, the keys are rightfully yours and that door is waiting to be opened.

Have a wonderful week and keep smiling because you’re special 🙂
