Brendon Burchard Experts Academy Video. Is it any good?

Brendon Burchard is the “Experts Expert”. What does that mean?

Well he helps people become experts in their field and make money from it.  The great thing about Brendon is that he actually walks the walk and focuses on helping people to make money rather than just money!

I want to say now that I have not seen this course so I can’t give you an honest review of the quality of the Experts Academy course.

That said, if it is anything like what he has given out for free then it will be well worth it.  Also a lot of peolpe say his stuff is excellent.  So if you are an author, trainer, coach etc or want to be then I would recommend at least getting his free stuff.  Seriously it is that good.  I have learnt a lot.

Here is a video he created.  I talk a bit before but the rest is from his video.  I couldn’t load it all because Brendon has done a 30 minute Video on Experts Academy and youtube won’t let me do one that long.  But you can get the basis of what he teaches and if you like it you can see the full video Brendon Burchard experts academy

Tony Robbins Video – Tiny changes means huge results

Tony Robbins gives some great advice about how a little but of effort each day can make a difference in your life.  It is only the small changes that can make a big difference.

In keeping with the theme of my posts this month, I thought this would be a great video.  If you haven’t already see the video I did on Personal Development in 10 minutes a day then take a look!

Do you like Tony Robbins?  Some don’t like his style but his message is always worth listening to.

Personal Development in San Diego

As I have already posted about the move to San Diego I won’t say much here….so here is my first video.  Not really about Personal Development but it is about San Diego.

What is it about admiring people who we shouldn’t

My friend and fellow blogger Diana from 4th Voice has written a wonderful article about admiring people who we shouldn’t.  And you know what, she is so right.  You can read her article Why do we Admire the Ridiculous?

Ok, so maybe Diana has a little thing about celebrities (Diana do we need to talk!?!?!?) but the concept in her article is absolutely correct.  You know as well as I do that the our communities need more real people to admire.  Our kids need people to look to, adults need that, we all do!

And more than anything we need to be those people.  That is one of the greatest lessons I have be taught.  That if I want to make a change then I need to change.

If I think there needs to be more people for other people to look up to in this world then I need to be that person.


No, just the facts.

We all need to step up and be the person we think others should be.  There is someone I know who is exactly the type of person who steps up.

He isn’t perfect as none of us are but he steps up and is a mentor to children and adults.  He doesn’t speak on stage, is not on radio or on TV but he is a hero to many.  He is my Martial Arts instructor from the UK.  Sean Connley.  You can see Sean’s website

I can tell you now you won’t find many people that have a bigger heart than Sean.

One of the authors that always talks about this is John Maxwell.  In most of his books he says that you need to lead yourself first and then lead others.  I find one of the best ways to do that is to try and help others.

Michael Jackson said it in his song – Man in the Mirror.  “If you want to make a change take a look in the mirror and make that change”

So, when you next think that someone should do this….maybe that someone is you.


Why you need to see this video if you care about health!

Yes it is serious.  I don’t always put on a serious “face” with this blog as I like to keep my Personal Development messages upbeat.  But I felt this topic needed a serious tone.  Slightly dramatic but that is what gets attention!

Anyway, as you may know I am involved in some projects to do with food production, what we eat and the sustainability of it.  You can see that here at

While looking at some videos on Youtube I came across the video from the Food matter people.  For a while now I have put a banner on this site linking to their site but I have never posted this video.  I watched it again and really felt that it is an important message to be spreading.

How we grow food, what we eat and what people think about that is key to our race working together and keeping healthy.  Changes happen slowly until they affect us.  This is happening right now.  As a Vegetarian/Vegan I think I eat very healthily….but actually there are things I need to change also.

We should all be getting behind the promotion of sustainable farming.  It is a problem we created and our children are going to have to manage.  Watch this video to find out more.

Wonderful Inspiring Personal Development Videos

I posted an inspiring personal development video this week and it got a lot of views.  So I thought I would do some more.

Over to youtube!  And then I searched online and found that Steve Aitchinson of Change Your Thoughts (A fellow British guy) has already made a great line up.

Steve blog is a great resource for Personal Development.  You can check out his blog here.

Steve’s posts is called 22 Free Personal Development Videos.  I haven’t watched them all yet but if Steve thinks they are good then I trust him.

As I said before part of your Personal Development plan includes inspirational things.  Anything that makes you feel inspired and ready to do more towards your goal.


Moved to San Diego! We did it!

Yes we did! (Not “yes we can” but I have to get into the mode of being in the USA).

After telling everyone we would move to San Diego we have done it.  I might add that lots of them didn’t believe we would do it.  I am not sure I did at times!  But having a Personal Development Plan is key!

Anyway, we are here and having a good time.  The weather has been on and off.  Raining a lot since I got here.

The locals say this is all the rain San Diego will get this year (but they said that yesterday also!).

I don’t believe them but it is nice of them to try to make me feel good.

So what now?

Well that is a great question! Well obviously I am sad to have left England.  My family and friends are there and I had business contacts.  However, those are not excuses to stay and they are not in my Personal Development plan either!

This has not been a mentally easy change but it also hasn’t been that hard.  Don’t get me wrong as I said I am sad to leave England but I am also really pumped about what San Diego will offer.  And that is how I have been looking at all of this.

When I was at the airport saying good bye to my parents it took all my strength to remember why I was doing this.  Nothing was going to stop me but I didn’t want it to be a unhappy thing.

I wanted the move to be happy!

Positive thinking helped.  Thinking about the adventure helped.  The possibility of meeting new people, taking on new challenges and learning cool new stuff (such as stopping at stop signs ALL the time – not so cool but I am learning it!).

For me this is a new adventure and I can make it as I want.  Kim is obviously very excited to be home.  She loves telling me how to drive (forgetting that I have been driving for 16 years), where to go, what things mean, how to pronounce places.  Have you been to Southern California?  Then you know what I mean.

I think this has actually been and will be a great lesson for me.  A lesson in believing in what I teach and tell people.  I say to people who need to change “Well you need to look at the positives in changing your life”  They know that is right but they are so fixed in their current life that any change is too hard.  For a while I have been in a steady thing.  Not really pushing past what I was doing.  My friends would say that isn’t true and that I have been really changing and doing lots of new stuff all the time but form my perspective it was all in my confort zone.

Ahh, the comfort zone.  How nice it is to be in it!

Or is it?  Well I don’t think so.

I think it is an really un nice place to be.  Why?  Well you are never really in “the comfort zone”.  You are either moving forward or back out of it.  So if you are not moving forward….you are moving back.

Do you want to be in reverse in your life?

No neither do it.  So don’t fall for that old trick.  There is no comfort zone.  There is just the place where you are about to move forward or back.  The comfort zone is not comfortable.  You just make do with what you have.

Can you be happy doing what you are doing?  Yes absolutely and that really is the goal.  Eckhart Tolle talks about this all the time.  Stop striving for the next great thing and just be.  Be at peace.

Ok more of that for another time.  This is about looking at positives.

So I would say to you.  If you are looking to make a change in your life and you are not sure if you should make that change then look at the positives of changing and not.  If the change has more positives to you then….well you have a decision to make.

That’s how I looked at this move.  There were a lot of positives to staying in England.  Friends, family and business but there were more exciting things in San Diego.

I can’t wait to make some great life changing positive things here in San Diego.

Here is a picture of Mission Bay that Kim took.  I will take some more pictures and post to this blog.

I am wishing you were all here to enjoy the sun (when it comes) and hope you have a great Halloween!
