The New Year has brought with it the usual tsunami of nauseatingly vacuous motivational quotes, banal self-help clichés and inane personal development truisms.
Yet despite this surge in advice from the well-intentioned but unlearned wounded healer community, when we look back at the end of 2018, it will be exactly the same as every other year in that,
• some people will have done the work – spiritual, mental and physical – to make things happen, and got the results they wanted,
• some people will have watched things happen, and
• some people will ask, “What the hell happened?”

A doctor on his morning walk, noticed a wrinkled old lady sitting on her front step smoking a cigar, with a huge smile on her face.
“I couldn’t help but notice how happy you look! What’s your secret?” asked the doctor.
“Every day I smoke ten cigars, drink a bottle of wine and eat pizzas and burgers. I’ve never done any exercise since the day I left school,” replied the old lady.
“That’s absolutely amazing! You must have inherited some great genes. May I ask how old you are?” asked the doctor.
“Thirty-four,” she replied.
Live big & love deep.
