Real Hero: Let Yourself Be Heard

For one more night this evening I will experience the feeling of being in the presence of greatness. I finish up a meditation course with Sister Stan this evening. Sister Stan set up one of the leading organisations tackling homelessness in Ireland, Focus Ireland. She has also established a centre of mindfulness and meditation in […]

Discoland: Creating Joy at Work

My brother-in-law put fellow Scot Gerry Cinnamon on my radar before Christmas. His one-man band music is so catchy (he should be on the Inspo 2020 soundtrack really). I saw a live show of his on Youtube last week. His one song Discoland caught the eye (in an ideal world he’d drop the unneeded reference […]

The Inspo Soundtrack to 2020.

Your Vision for 2020 (A Million Dreams – The Greatest Showman Soundtrack): To have a vision in 2020 is to give yourself something personal and meaningful to work towards. A personal vision is associated with greater levels of motivation, productivity and inspiration. Resilience (Outnumbered – Dermot Kennedy): 2020, like any other year, will bring you […]

Inspiration on a Small Scale

Inspo is about inspiring people. Last week’s post was about inspiring you to create your own ‘20/20 Vision’. At this time of year, there is a lot of inspiration being offered to you.  You’re probably reading words and phrases like ‘new you’, ‘transformation’, ‘big change’ etc. with regularity. Today’s post is an attempt to inspire […]

MSub60: What is 20/20 Vision?

I got to see Frozen II with my niece and Dad before Christmas. As well as being a great movie, it has a great song in it too, called Into the Unknown. We ourselves are heading into the unknown of a new year and new decade. I’d like to start this new year and new […]

Motivation in Under 60 Seconds: Gratitude for 2019.

2019, I am grateful to you for: Businesses seeing Inspo as a brand they want to work with; My bike, for getting me everywhere I need to go (which extended as far as Portlaoise this year); People being willing to trust me to deliver work for them in the ‘unknown’ space; Finding a (legitimate) way […]

Your Energy Levels: Listen to the Bell

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? Let the bells ring out for Christmas. And the bells are ringing out for Christmas Day. As the festive season kicks in the bells are beginning to ring out. Bells are synonymous with this time of the year. So too are bells synonymous with track athletics. A bell is […]

Communication: Can it be the difference?

It amazed me when he said it. The power of it. The simplicity. My biopsychology lecturer in closing off our final lecture said to us: The working of the human brain is dependant on communication. In essence, his message is; communicate well to the human brain and that brain will process the information well. Communicate […]

Can 3 Questions Change Your World?

What’s your biggest fear? What’s holding you back from living life to the fullest? From aged 5/6, I had a debilitating fear of drowning. The sight of swimming togs and deep water brought a raised heartbeat and sense of unholy panic. Aged 14, my family moved to a coastal town. The exposure to the fear […]
