Hey,

How’s it going my beautiful people and what a long time it’s been.

I know I’m 4 months late, but:

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015

I’ve had a hectic 2014 and it’s been one of the busiest and craziest years of my life. From slipping into cardiac arrest, to becoming a public speaker, to starting my own business and becoming self employed – All from the back of my two Bodybuilding shows and modelling shoot at the end of 2013.

2015 started of pretty wild also, but the storm is now calm and I am able to breathe and continue to focus on the things that I really love to do – What else is life about eh?

I’ve learned so many lesson over the past two years (where has time gone so quickly) and feel that I have grown as an individual that can deliver some new juicy content for you guys over the next few years to come…

Today I have no particular topic in mind, but just wanted to catch up with you all and make it known that I am still about and living well. Also to let you know what I’ve been up to as I’ve had hundreds of emails asking what I’ve been getting up to…

Well,

Something happened to me that I never thought was possible…

I TOOK ON TOO MANY GOALS TOO SOON

Now – Not ever in this life time did I think it would be possible for me to take on too much at one go, as I like to think of myself as a pretty balanced individual. But I made that mistake last year and will forever have the experience with me to help me through tougher or similar situations. (I don’t use the concept of mistakes any more, I simply view them as lessons learned)

Now in life, we all want to be successful, healthy and wealthy (I at least hope so anyway) and this leads us to setting goals, doing affirmations and incantations (an affirmation with emotion and reaction).

Life ain’t easy folks, and we must do all we can do to help us get through periods of tough times in our lives. Here’s a list of a few tools that I use to help me through periods of darkness in my life or to help get me through challenging goals. I hope you will also find them useful.

We Can Get Through Anything in Life – 5 Step Program

Don't Give Up

1) Self Talk – As I’ve wrote before, talking to yourself ISN’T a sign of madness. It’s simply an exercise which can be used when you find yourself down about something. Talk to yourself as you would to a loving child. Ask yourself why you’re feeling tense or uptight. You may find that the answer you receive helps you to ease the apprehension you are feeling at the time. I find this exercise also helps to bring me to a state of calmness if I am ever feeling anxious, tense or nervous about anything.

2) Writing Things Down – Writing things down whether using the “Diary” approach method or simply by just scribbling down your thoughts and emotions on a piece of paper is a good way to release anxious energy and a powerful tool if you don’t want to share your issue with anyone.

Writing yours goals on a piece of paper and having them up by your bed so you can see them everyday is also worth doing and highly recommended.

3) Speaking with People – The good ole days before smart phones, where people use to communicate with each other more face to face or actually speak on the phone LOL. Speaking with like minded people helps you to align yourself with that positivity energy needed to get you through that dark spell. Try to build a good circle of people around you that can be there to help you when you need them most.

4) Read Books/Articles – Remember guys, we now live in the DIGITAL AND INFORMATION age where access to information is only a click away (You got that smart phone right LOL)

On a serious note, there are so many books, ebooks, audio books and articles out there that you have no excuses not to better your life. Reading the right books and getting the right information will help you through anything.

A simple search on Google for:

“Self Development”

“Self Improvement”

“Achieving Goals”

“Law of Attraction”

“Motivation Quotes”

Will help you on your path to a better life…

We have a wealth of information out there waiting to help us, we just have to go out there and search for it.

Visualisation-quote-on-beach

5) Visualisation – Visualisation works simply by you envisioning yourself in the position you want to be in life right now. It’s that simple and rather a fun exercise (LOL, I’m sure we all do it sometimes – Better jobs, careers, loving relationships, holidays, new cars – It can be anything that put’s a smile to your face)

Once you’ve had some reflection time and you know where you want to be in life and you have a clear visual representation of this of this in your mind – GO OUT THERE AND GET IT!

AND DON’T LET NOTHING OR NO ONE STOP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY!

My philosophy is this –  We only live one life in these physical bodies of ours, so we might as well make the best of it and do as much as we can whilst we are here (Without taking on too much at once of course LOL)

And Remember

~Tough times don’t last, Tough people do~

It’s been great catching up with y’all 🙂

Stay Blessed and Much Love

Wassup Guys,

A new week, a new start (Although a new start can be made the moment you decide)

Life is short – Would you agree?

Once our time here on Earth is done, that’s it, it’s over…

Saying that, we need to stop looking at death as a bad thing as it is a natural part of life…

Would you agree?

Most of us at some point in our lives have lost loved ones – This could either be family or friends…

That being said – WE ARE STILL HERE ALIVE AND BREATHING…

We for whatever reason have been blessed with the opportunity to experience life on this physical plane while others have passed…

What does this mean exactly?

It means that (WE) collectively as a people and (YOU) as an individual are here for a reason/purpose – Whether you identify with it or not…

If you chose to believe that you are just here to exist and breathe – You have free will and good luck to you…

HOWEVER, if you wake up everyday going through the same old routine and questioning life…You are not alone…

We are all GREAT at something…

A lot of the time, whatever we are GREAT at, we don’t realise as it’s:

“SOMETHING THAT IS JUST NORMAL TO US”

Here’s the problem – We don’t identify with OUR greatness as WE don’t see it as being great…

At the age of 25 I have now found what I am good at and I consciously make the effort to embrace it and share it with the rest of the world…Please don’t take these words lightly…

I see greatness in people that don’t see GREATNESS in themselves…

That’s crazy because IMAGINE how much people out there will pass away never having shared their full potential with us?

Do you want to be one of those people?

Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Elvis Presley, Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Nikola Tesla

What do all these people have in common?

They all found their greatness and shared it with the rest of the world…
(Plus they have passed away but their GREATNESS still lives on)

Could you be the next great?

great

Only you can decide that my friend….

Find your greatness and share it with the rest of the world through being:

Motivated
Patient
Consistent
Bold

And having the courage not to care what others thinks about you. Learn to drop those inhibitions guys, they really do us NO good…

My names David and I love you all

PEACE

Hey Guys,

Just here to give you some mid week motivation.

We all know that the road to success or the road to reaching our goals is an on-going process.

People ask me all the time what keeps me motivated. Truth be told, I use MANY tools to keep me focused and I will continue to share them with you all throughout the year as I have done for the past 16 months.

There are many times where I find myself lacking motivation, we all go through it. This is why we must do what it takes to stay on track and to keep on pushing forward.

The only person directing your life is you…

The question is though:

What direction are you going???

OK, so it’s quite clear that without motivation we aren’t likely to get anything done – Would we all accept that as a reality?

Moving on, it’s easy to watch a 10 minute motivational video filled with explosive energy and get pumped up for a while feeling like it’s your time.

You know how it is, you watch the video and think:

“Yep, I’m gonna make it happen and no ones gonna stop me”

Only to find yourself next Monday morning lacking motivation again…

You find that the energy you were once holding onto after watching the video is slowly fading away – It happens!

This is why staying in the zone takes practice. It’s like anything in life really.

You don’t go to the gym once and get in shape. It takes a conscious decision on your part everyday to eat well, train smart and get adequate rest.

The same goes for working on your mind and improving your day to day life.

You have to try to remain conscious on improving yourself and all aspects of yourself!

Did you know that the the majority of the world use 95% of their sub conscious minds in their day to day everyday life?

Do you know what this really means when we’re discussing motivation and personal excellence?

Do you know what happens if you decide to flip it around and consciously use 95% of you conscious mind vs the 95% of your sub conscious mind that you’ve been using your WHOLE life?

Without deviating too much, I invite you all to watch a video by Bruce Lipton called:

Conscious vs the Subconscious

Youtube it for now but I will post it up on my videos page at some point this week.

I will leave it here as today is a short one and I have ALOT of stuff to sort out (The days when my weekends use to be free LOL)

Thank you guys so much for reading my material – I love writing anyway, but your kind words keep me aligned and focused on my life’s mission – Serving You 😀

Much Love & Stay Motivated

Hey Guys,

Seeing as it’s the last day of the year I thought I’d write a small post about some random stuff and kinda just go with the flow…

Where do I start? 

2013 has been one of the best years of my life. I started the year with no vision that I’d be where I am today. Life has a way to carry you down this stream if you learn to go with the flow. I’d set many goals at the start of 2013 and through setting out to achieve them, life has taken me down this path that I hadn’t anticipated.

I’ve learned a lot about myself as an individual by going through life and trying to learn from everyday experiences.

Image

This year I’ve travelled, achieved goals, met new friends, over come challenges, helped people who’ve come across my path and I am living everyday as if it’s my last – I am literally trying to squeeze as much joy out of life as I can. Imagine life was toothpaste in the tube about to run out – That’s the type of squeeze I’m talking about lol.

Image

I done it – I made it happen – So can you!

 

Image

Never give up!

I never started the year knowing that I’d compete in not one, but two bodybuilding/fitness shows standing in front of 1000’s of people. I never knew that I would experience my first professional studio photo shoot with a top photographer in the city of London. I never knew or saw any of this guys. I mean, I saw it in my mind and knew that I would make it happen one day but I never this year would be the year. It makes me think, none of us know where life is going to take us. We just gotta stay positive and keep trying. PERIOD!

Image

First Photo Shoot – Grown man Swag 😉

 

Life’s way too short not to enjoy. It’s too short to remain angry at someone because of something that happened in the past. It’s too short to harbour negative energy towards anyone because in turn all that will happen is it will affect your happiness. 

I mean think about it. If you’re in a state of mind where you’re constantly seeking to get revenge on someone, how happy in your life can you truly be?

I have learned to forgive all the people in my life who have hurt me in the past and who will hurt me in the future as I want to live in peace with myself and be happy. Deep down we all know that true happiness doesn’t arrive until we are at peace with ourselves.

Please do not confuse what I mean when I say forgiveness. I don’t mean forgiveness in the traditional sense as in “Forgive, forget and be friends again”, but forgiveness as in to forgive so you can be at peace of mind.

I look back at my life now and can see that I have truly become a man. Upon reflection, I can see that I have come a long way from where I use to be. I now recognise that my life has been one big lesson. Each day is really a school for learning. 

All the situations I’ve been in that I once called negative or bad have been stepping stones to make me the guy that I am today. 

Image

“Without negativity in my life, I wouldn’t aspire to be positive” 

I know this may sound crazy to some but I now appreciate negativity in my life. In fact, I appreciate all the polarities which fall under negativity.

Let me explain. When I’m angry, I learn to be remain calm. I don’t like getting or being angry, so I consciously focus my attention on remaining calm when I find myself in “negative” situations. Through mastering and learning to control all negative aspects of ourselves we become stronger individuals. I hope you now have a better understanding of what I mean when I say I welcome negativity in my life.

I now view life as a game. One big massive game. And within this massive game contains games within games (Inception).

Image

We all play the numbers game which requires everyday participation.

In fact, the numbers game takes up the majority of our lives. If you are not playing in this game, life will become very difficult for you.

If you hadn’t clocked on by now I’m talking about “Money“. In today’s reality we are all playing the numbers game and you have no choice but to play (unless you live out in the hills somewhere)

But I’ve realised something – Life isn’t actually all about money. You may think I’m contradicting myself, so again allow me to explain…

Image

On the bigger picture of life, we are all human. We all have the same God given needs and are made up of the same bio-logical structure. We all need love, food, shelter, health and air to breathe right…

From what I find truth in, life is all about creating. It’s about creating and sharing with the world what you are good at. Developing your natural born skills, loving others and doing your part to making the world a better place. However, this isn’t our reality…

 Instead, we live in a world where our reality has become “Survive Survive Survive”.

Image

We are all so busy trying to survive and live…So much so that we’re not getting the opportunity to truly live and enjoy life. You following me?

It’s not all bad though as within all of that I have also learned something else. We all have the power to shape our reality…

Who controls your thoughts? YOU

Thoughts are what make up your…? REALITY

Now, if your thoughts are what make up your reality and you control your thoughts then you can clearly understand that you are the one with the power. And we all know that with power comes responsibility…

WE ALL HAVE THE POWER TO SHAPE OUR REALITY

Image

When you make a comment such as:

“I’m depressed because this person hurt my feelings” OR

“I’ve had a bad day because my boss was being a bone head”

Do you realise you that you have given that person the power to control how you are feeling? You are consciously allowing them to shape your reality. No one deserves that sort of control over you but YOURSELF! Never forget that!

Looking back at life and thinking over 2013 I can truly see that I am living in a different reality to which I use to live. I don’t even feel like myself any more at times. That might sound bad but it’s actually a good thing.

I think what has happened is, I’ve realised my true potential and what I can achieve in this life time. But because I’ve created this self image of myself which is a portrait of all my lower aspects, I’ve identified myself with all those lower aspects and have been living my life thinking that “That is who I am” and “That is all I am” .

Image

When I speak to people about this subject, I see that we are all in it together. Many others have created this poisonous “Self Image” of themselves that have stemmed from hurtful past experiences which have built up and manifested into emotional blockages such as confidence issues, fear, worry of failure, lack of self worth, fear of rejection…We don’t believe in ourselves and I believe this is the root cause of it all.

We don’t see all the good things we have been doing in our lives. We don’t recognise all the wonderful things we have been doing for ourselves and others around us until someone points it out. Why?

Because we were “just” being “Ourselves”

What does your self image say about you?

Do you walk with confidence because you know your true worth or are you living a life filled with fear?

 

Do you know how special you are? If so, do you embrace it?

If not, ask yourself why exactly you are not special?

Listen to the answer you hear in your mind? The answer may be along the lines of a mistake you’ve made in the past.

Whatever it is, face it, analyse it, work with it and make peace with it. Don’t move into 2014 with any unnecessary emotional baggage. If you are carrying baggage, make 2014 the year to drop the load and live in peace. 

I could type forever but seeing as it’s New Years Eve I don’t want to bore you any longer lol.

Guys, I wish a you all a wonderful 2014.

Don’t be too down on yourself if you never made it happen like you wanted to in 2013. Just review what could have been better and make it right for 2014.

That’s the good thing about failure. You fail, You “learn”, You make it right and go for it again and again until you finally get right…

You will realise soon enough though that because of “failure” you learned to reach success and had it right all along…

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014

Yours Truly

Hello Hi,

Wassup peeps, how are we all doing this week 😀

As always, I hope everyone is well.

I wanted to share another video with you guys (plus some of you have been requesting some more motivational material)

This video in particular gave me chills and made me want to step my game up another notch!

Never tell yourself you are working at 100% even when you know your giving it all you have. I would go as far as 99.9% knowing that within that small space to get to 100% there is always area for improvement. We need to stay hungry if we want to be successful, and with adopting this mind set we will always strive for more. The moment you get comfortable is the moment you loose the hunger which is the main ingredient for success – Ponder upon that last line for a moment.

People ask me what I do to keep motivated and watching videos is my thing. I not only watch videos, I also:

* Write my goals down and stick them up all around my house where I can always see them

* Have a small book with my goals that I carry around with me to keep me in remembrance of what I am striving and aiming for

* Have pictures up of the material goods I am chasing in this life time. For example – BMW’s, houses in Miami, electrical goods

* Physique’s of guys pictures I aspire to look like (You may question my sexuality when seeing ripped guys on my bedroom wall but I can promise you I am straight lol)

* Visualise very clearly everyday upon waking and going to bed what it is I am trying to achieve. This method helps to programme the sub conscious mind (which we work off 95% of the time) but that’s another subject within itself.

* Self talk – One of the biggest myths is that talking to yourself makes you crazy. Talking to yourself helps you to put things into perspective. I find it also helps you to rationalize things when in difficult situations.

When you are lacking motivation, just talk to yourself to help you remember why you are making the sacrifices and going through all this work. Ask yourself questions like:

*Why am I doing this?
*What am I trying to achieve?
*How long do I plan to do this for?
*Is there a easier and more effective method that I can be using which is less time consuming?

This is what I mean when I say talking to yourself helps you to rationalize sensibly and put things into a clearer perspective.

Talking to yourself aloud (preferably by yourself lol) is even more powerful. Try it whilst looking in the mirror and let me know if the effect is magnetised in anyway.

We all need to help each other and share our wisdom as even though we live individual lives, we are all collectively living as one – I hope that didn’t go over your head lol.

Help the man next to you for one day you may need his help…

Anyways, after my show and dieting is all over I will have some more time to share my new knowledge with you all which will cover different aspects of life and finding our true life’s purpose, nutrition made easy for you, methods of training in and out the gym and just having fun with it all.

As always, thank you for reading and getting involved – I am truly grateful. It’s over whelming some of the feedback I get from you guys. I started out this blog site with no intentions or any prior knowing of what direction I wanted it to go.

Now I will use it as a platform to share my insights, philosophies and to give back what I have received from others 😀

I love you all and may this blog post reach you in good spirit.

Morning folks,

I started my Thursday morning with this motivation video I found on Youtube to get me pumped up for the day and I feel it can also get you going by adding some fuel to your already on going fire. Let me ask you some questions I pose to myself everyday:

1) Do you have any dreams?

2) Are you working towards something in life or are you waking up everyday and just breathing for the sake of it?

3) What is your life purpose and are you living that purpose?

4) Are you happy in life?

5) Do you have any goals in life and if so, what will it take for you to achieve them?

I believe that by asking ourselves these questions routinely everyday, we tap into what I call:

“Awareness”

This is awareness of ourselves, our actions and our thoughts.

Why we act the way we act, why we think the way we think and why we do what we do. Being conscious of the present moment will help to eliminate the ego and allow you to see a situation for what it is…But I’m coming off track now as always LOL.

Enjoy the video and have a great day guys 😀

Love and Blessings to you all

Since the last video I posted on Law of Attraction, it seems a lot of you are already clued up about the topic. However, there are those of you who came into that sort of information for the first time upon watching the video and it appears you want to learn more on the subject as it is quite interesting and leaves you with lot’s to think about 😀

Today I invite you all to listen to this short Mp3 clip taken from Earl Nightingales:

“The Strangest Secret”

Although short, the information contained within this Mp3 will hopefully open your eyes to another side of life – Another side of life which we deserve to know about…

I’m not here to discuss Law of Attraction with sceptics… I’m simply here to relay information which has helped me greatly within my life, my families life, my friends who are conscious, and a whole list of celebrities including Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan and Will Smith who in my opinion were/are the best at what they do and have generated a mass amount of wealth via their success.

For those who are interested in the subject and want more information or simply want to discuss the topic further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

REMEMBER – An Idea/Thought + Intention + Attention = Results

We all deserve to live a truly joyful and blissful life – Let’s get together and focus on making it happen!

Much Love and Peace to You ALL

NAMASTE

Hey Guys,

Just a quick one. As some of you are aware, I entered a 90 day body transformation competition at my gym back in January and won. They’ve now released the poster and I’m very happy with how it looks.

I was also raising money for kids with cancer as apart of the transformation and would like to thank everyone who donated money. I didn’t raise as much money as I’d like to be honest, but at least I tried and will continue trying (I feel it’s for a good cause)

Keep grinding and putting in the work and know with all of your heart that you will get there. You may not know how or when but just knowing and believing will see you through the hardship.

Stay Motivated, Be inspired!

I really believe that everyone has a talent, ability, or skill that he can mine to support himself and to succeed in life”

Sometimes we are so wrapped up in our day to day lives that we don’t realise our true talents, abilities and skills, to go out and take advantage of them.

Or you may be in a situation where you recognise your talent but don’t feel you can make a living from it, so you go through in life working for a salary never really utilizing your full potential.

I think this is a sad position to be in but when asking around and speaking with people, you find that most are in this situation. The system is created in such a way that, we work most of our life’s to end up with little to nothing.

We work a 9-5 which takes up the majority of our day, add travel on top of that and your looking at 9-10 hours of work, sometimes even more, but only getting paid for the 8 hours. And when we do get paid we have bills and taxes to folk out on.

So in the end we work hard all our life’s and aren’t really left with nothing, all for doing something we don’t enjoy.

How many of you truly wake up in the morning with passion, excitement and joy looking forward to work and your day ahead.

If you are in a position where you’re not happy with life because your not doing what you love, have a deep think about what you truly want from life.

I’d not advocating anyone leave their jobs spontaneously, but more to analyse your situation.

We are all special in our own way and have something to offer to the next man.

We just have to look deep within ourselves, follow our heart and intuition.

Before I go, apologies for the lack of updates this week. I’m pretty busy sorting out some things behind the scenes so please bare with  me.

Much Love to you all.

PEACE
