The Happiness Formula
Tony Robbins is one of the leading lights in personal development. Here’s his insightful formula for happiness:
BP stands for Blueprint – this is how you think your life ‘should‘ look in one area or another. In your health, wealth, relationships etc. At this moment in your life.
LC stands for Life Conditions. Tony states that if our Life Conditions equal our Blueprint for how our life ‘should’ be then we are happy. If they do not match then we are not happy. If you find that your Life Conditions don’t match how you feel your life ‘should’ be right now – read on.
So, how can you change your situation if your Life Conditions do not match your Blueprint?
- 1. Change your Life Conditions, or
- 2. Change the Blueprint
Simple, but like a lot of simple things in life – not easy. The programming we’ve had throughout our lives can sometimes make it feel impossible to make the changes necessary. But all change is possible when it come to mindset.
If you’re not sure where to start, begin with considering a life coach.

Great Career advice – for any career
My wife pointed me to this excellent article on becoming a freelance journalist by George Monbiot. The clue is in the word ‘free‘. But even if you’re not trying to be a writer the words here will inspire and provoke thought with regards to your own hopes and dreams.
If you’re still under 30 you may still have hopes and dreams, if you’re over 40 you may be wondering where they went. Read the article and it might just remind you…

What little voice in your head fills you with doubt?
Once you identify it, trace back to where it originated. Was it a critical parent or teacher?
Was it the bullying voices of peers. Over protective friends or family?
Once you know the origin ask yourself if there is any evidence to prove it might be correct.
My guess is that whatever evidence there may have been in the past is not valid now. Spend some time finding evidence to the contrary. It will dilute that doubt.
Do you ever wonder why you just can’t get certain things done in your life. You know you want to but for some reason you always find something else to do instead.
Watch this short TED Talk – it may just throw some light on Why.
Slowing the pace down from time to time is a good catalyst for making changes in your life – last Friday I did just that along with my chum Jon, pooling down the Thames at 5mph. Lovely. :)

I’d helped RBWM with raising the £120k sponsorship for the Magna Carta Flotilla… now it was time to capture some pictures… first job, get up the River Thames to Cookham Friday afternoon…
This was my Saturday evening view… book your boat trip today >>>
There are rather a lot of pictures so let’s break this down into two blogs… first is our trip up The River Thames Datchet to Cookham… followed tomorrow by the Magna Carta images…
Pictures speak louder than words and I’d like to share them with you… videos can speak louder than pictures and there are a few of those… I had told the world I would share via MeerKat and @MagnaCarta1506 footage of the events, which I did but it means that the camera has gone into iPhone rather than iPad mode, so vertical which is a bit annoying… anyway, enjoy… I’ll add a few words…

When was the last time you stopped and really evaluated where you are headed and why?
It’s possible things have changed since you set yourself on your present course.
Maybe it’s time for a course correction, a deviation onto a slightly different path. Maybe an about turn altogether.
How will you know?
This is an excerpt from my book: “Do You Hate Your Job?” – I re-read it today because I am feeling some of these feelings at the moment and this helped. To get a free pdf copy of my book see instructions at the bottom…
“If you do decide to find a new job, new career or start up your own business know that there may well be fear and confusion along the way.
Learn to accept that, learn to understand that growing as a person is happening alongside this journey of following your passion, dream or goal. Sometimes you have to take the hit. If you want to go into events planning but don’t have the experience, why not get a job just helping other planners set their events up and learn how they do it from the ground up.
If you feel totally stuck or paralysed by fear or doubt – get calm. Sit still, breathe deeply and slowly and reconnect with your intuition, excitement, creativity and imagination. Trust yourself.
Accept that you won’t know all the answers, accept that you will have to take risks and above all accept that you may fail along the way. This is part of the journey. If it was easy everyone would do it – but they don’t. This is the road less travelled, this is the path to success, the difficult path but the one that leads to more fulfillment, contentedness, happiness, joy and ultimately life.
I did it, in fact I’m still doing it. Yes, I still have doubts and fears and I still find myself procrastinating from time to time. But at least now I’m aware of what’s going on and how to change it.
And remember to give yourself a break. It’s normal to be afraid, it’s normal to be unsure. Rather than chastise yourself for these negative feel- ings, acknowledge them. Sit with them for a while. Listen to what they’re trying to tell you. Then question if you agree with them or not.
Feelings are natural – accept them, allow them. If you want to know the strategies and tactics to change them… read on.”
