Who is your biggest inspiration?

I thought about this for a while, expecting a known ‘name’ to come into my head, but I had a clear message which came from my heart and soul that my biggest inspiration and the love of my life is my wife Gerry. She stuck by me in my ‘broke’ years, when I was down emotionally, financially, and spiritually. As I made the shift to become my TrueSelf, becoming very wealthy and very happy in the process, Gerry was patient and remained ever present. She is an Earth Angel and my very best friend, too.

What have you learnt about yourself as you’ve got older?

I’ve learned to trust my TrueSelf in a huge way because when I do, great things happen. Even when logic and ego try to defy my intuitive, inner guidance, I almost always go with the inner signaling. In fact, looking back and joining up those dots, I realise that my biggest breakthroughs in life and business have come when the ego and logic most tried to defy me.

If you had to give one piece of life-changing advice, what would it be?

Practice trusting your intuitive self regarding the small things in life; where to sit on a train, which direction to walk in, when to make that call, because this teaches us to trust the more important life signals, when they come through.

How do you make a good decision? 

No surprise! I check within (heart and gut) for about 10 seconds and then follow the messages from that place.

If you weren’t you, who would you be?

Martin Luther King Jr. He lived an audaciously honest life, daring to speak and live the truth that others would not.

Optimist or pessimist?

Occasional moments of doubt, but I’m an eternal optimist. I live only one day at a time, giving my best, expecting the best from that day only. I work to remain present because I know that it helps our gifts and talents to come through.

What is the key to a happy life?

Discovering one’s TrueSelf day-by-day and then living from that place, from that truth one day at a time, using DailyStandards™ set from within. This simple approach makes me happy every day, after 17 years of near depression
