Whenever I talk about coaching elite sportsmen and women to others, they almost always refer to an idea of the final 2-3% of the mind needed in helping the athlete achieve a slightly greater level of potential and excellence. Not so. This idea of the final 2-3% is to devalue the effect on an athlete or anyone else for that matter that is serious … [Read more...]
The last 2-3% of the mind is everything
Jack Nicholson and his immortal line in the movie A Few Good Men, is the most remembered part of the film - "You can't handle the truth!" Few people have the courage to face the truth. This is a word that people demand on a daily basis. "What is the truth?" Or "How can we find out the truth?" We should be careful to ask such a … [Read more...]
Wolf blood – reclaiming our intelligence.
We now crave a return to the simplistic enjoyments of life. Real fires, walks in nature, exercise in nature, barefoot running and walking and time away from devices and gadgets that stifle the creation of space that holds the key to our own peace of mind. We are also driven back to real food that has been eaten for thousands of years and not … [Read more...]
The Narcissistic ego – learning to defend against it.
Modern society has become a breeding ground of the narcissist, someone who has an obsessive interest in or admiration in themselves. We've all met one or perhaps know one. Rather than a long detailed analysis of the narcissist, let's briefly look at the traits of what I have controversially called a mental health issue, before learning how to … [Read more...]
Seek death in life – The connection to our greatest power.
The day will inevitably come when we take our last breath. It is the greatest fear, death. We have no idea when this will happen but happen it most certainly will. All the personas and characters we play to neatly slot into our society will come to an end. For many there will be a sigh of great relief, as the great egoic display that has … [Read more...]
Fitness – mindfulness and survival
Fitness is survival. I am not necessarily referring to a life and death situation but a heightened experience of life that relies on physical stress inducing movement that leads to inner peace, less thought, greater mental strength and a more expansive, formidable mind. These are the basis of any survival. But, for it to work it must not be part of … [Read more...]

Klaus Kemper – 3 time Light Heavyweight Judo Champ.
This Summer I had the pleasure of spending a few days with Klaus Kemper, Germany's 3 time Light Heavyweight Judo Champion. A fine gentleman. We had great chats on the power of the mind, the building of character and the tough sport of Judo. Best remark: "When you think you have nothing left in you, you can often do the greatest things." I … [Read more...]

A society of mental dysfunction
As I observe the ever increasing mental health issues including all the terrible suicides and mass depression that accompany it, I have come to realise that we live in a sick society that desperately wants to be seen as one with a high degree of morality. To apply so much pressure to our children to fit in to our immoral conformity of judgement, … [Read more...]
