Everything happens for a reason
I can't think of a saying that grates on me more. This could be a controversial post to make in this forum.

If the cards are broadly in your favour and live in the first world you may be lucky enough to be able to believe it, but for a significant proportion of humanity the deal is unfair and has no upside now or in the future.

Or am I missing something?

You're not missing anything, James.

For me one of the big shadows of the coaching profession is its attachment to this kind of statement, and its relentless focus on positivity - what Barbara Ehrenreich calls the cult of mandatory optimism.

I think it probably makes 'it' more accessible, more about personalities than Politics for many of us. I admit that I watched more of it this year, than ever before. Keen to get back to business now. Hoping the government will get on with the business that must take care of.

Coaching for ill health
Question?
What can any one share about coaching young people through ill health?
What do you think of the impact of coaching on children and user coming health issues. And what about the importance of language around a poorly young person.
Please share and respond in detail if you can. Thanks.

Formula 1
Love it or hate it!
How can you coach a champion - two part question: how can you coach some one to be a champion, and how do you coach a champion to remain at the top?
You can see how careers are managed and deals done, but what about the champion drivers, engineers or designers. How do you coach them?

The power of choice
I love the way my son got his school uniform out this morning, after couple fab Easter weeks off. He talked me through the blue jumper, his white polo shirt, black/grey socks, dark grey trousers, dark shoes...he shared with pride. then his little eyes sparkled, the smile grew, his nose twitched and he licked his lips and announced that he could wear any type and colour of pants he wanted, he rummaged through boxers and pants, in many colours and carefully chose a limey green pair!

The Marshmallow Test - Mastering Self Control
I'm currently reading this book. It set off my synchronicity alarm by being mentioned three times within a short period:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Marshmallow-Test-Mastering-Self-Control/dp/0316230871

One of the mentions suggested that a current equivalent was social media. How good are you at restricting the number of times you check Twitter or FB when you should be doing other things?

I'm enjoying the book so far. Very thought provoking.

Ironically, I came here to distract myself from a piece I am supposed to be writing.

Parenting and other vacuums
There are too many vacuums now - media, corporate ethics, etc. Government can and should play a role here by defining frameworks for regulation (eg banking, tax) that are much simpler and stop belly-aching about people avoiding tax or taking mad risks. To help align individual interest to community interest is Government's job - to set the framework within which we operate together. The fall of the traditional Civil Service has left this vacuum, then creaing other vacuums, and society suffers.

Ah...then you just did :)
You'll be swept up in a flying saucer as soon as you step outside your home. See you there! Weather? Where we going we have a completely new kind of 'weather'! You'll love it if you love me, or hate it if you hate me!
Have fun...

Think Positive Thoughts
This is what people don’t understand: It normally takes 21 days to change a habit. So if I was thinking in a negative way for a long time, it would take at least 21 days to change my mindset to think positively. Read More »

You are powerful
     In this article, I will talk about how you are more powerful than you ever thought possible.  Dr. Wayne Dyer wrote a book called, Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life.
