On the late December day that Feeling Groovy was published I lit the log fire in my living room and gazed contentedly into the flames. It was one of the high points in my life. I had finally found a way to share my knowledge of how to make life an enjoyable experience.

Life is at its best when you feel “on top of the world.” It is my opinion that no thought, no activity, no amount of money can ever surpass the best feelings. The pinnacles in your life are the stand out feelings that you experience. The more you manage to make yourself feel wonderful, the higher will be your life experience.

In the 25+ years I have been a self-realisation coach I have come to understand that we are all driven primarily by our twin desires to feel “good” and to avoid feeling “bad.” We feel more acutely alive and animated when we experience heightened levels of positive feelings such as love, happiness, friendship, confidence and hope. The question is: “How do I get to experience these positive feelings all the time?”

Feeling Groovy is a book that endeavours to answer that question. It is is about the best ways to think and behave in order to induce and maintain the groovy feelings that will enhance your life. The book Feeling Groovy and this blog are intended to be your “go-to recipe” when your spirits need a lift.”

The aim of this blog is to get you to feel groovy all of the time so that you can live a life filled with meaning, fun and achievement. From now on, when anyone asks, “How are you?” You can reply, “I’m feeling groovy!” And you will notice that you do.

You are welcome here at any time.


How Could a Life Coach Help Me?

When something in your life is not working and you can’t find a solution – that’s the time to seek out a good life coach. See – How To Choose a Life Coach.

The issue that could make you seek out a life coach can be anything that’s bothering you. Here are just a few of the issues I deal with constantly:

  • career frustration – can’t earn enough, promotion blocked, poor work environment, no job satisfaction, over-work, want to change career,
  • lack of money
  • redundancy
  • relationship issues, can’t find the right person, can’t get away from the wrong person
  • lack of excitement/boredom
  • the feeling that there must be more to life, but what?

How Can a Life Coach Help?

The difficulty with trying to solve problems on your own is that you keep asking yourself the same questions. And because you keep asking the same questions, guess what, you keep coming up with the same answers.

The result is that you go round in circles and cannot break out – find new solutions.

A good life coach will use their experience to ask you new questions and help you find new, workable solutions.

A good life coach will not turn up with ready-made solutions to your challenges. They will help you to work out your own solutions. The big advantage of this way of working is that you find solutions that you know will work for you.

How Will I Know That the Solution is Any Good?

You will feel the energy and passion for what you are about to do.

My passion is in helping people to create the life they would love to live. The first step in this process is to Discover Your Passion.

The reason why I start with your passion is because it is passion that gives you the self-belief and the energy to create the life you want.

If you’ve ever had a passion for another human being you can remember how your energy levels soared when you though about them, how you couldn’t wait to be with them, how you could not do enough for them. So, you know the power of passion.

Yes, But Will I be Able to Achieve My Goals?

A good life coach is someone who has already achieved many of their own most important life goals. They will be mature and experienced in dealing with lifes vicissitudes. They will have a good track record of having helped others. They will know how to help you Create Your Own Independent Income, or build a successful career, or find the right person. They will have ongoing support programmes to make sure that you achieve what you have set your heart on.

Once you really set your heart on achieving something about which you are passionate it is essential that you succeed. It is not going too far to say that your life depends on it. This is because, as Abraham Maslow said: “to be happy we must become what we can become.” Note, he said “MUST become.”

Why Most People Fail

To be fair, most people don’t fail – they just fail to get started.

Change can feel scary. You might be saying to yourself, “Where I am now might not be everything I would love it to be, but at least I know where I am. I can manage the status quo, so why change anything?”

Look at it this way: imagine that you have reached retirement age. You are sitting in an old peoples home looking back over your life. What do you see? Is it just a picture of years and years of what you’ve got now? Or is it the picture that you sometimes imagine of how you’d love your life to be? A life filled with excitement, adventure, love, challenge, creativity, fulfilment, meaning and prosperity?

The difference between the two pictures is up to you – you are the painter of the picture of your life. What picture do you want to paint?
