The Joy of Zoom

How are you adapting to life under ‘lockdown’? For many people, primarily those who do not normally work from home, it must be quite a challenge. Previously, being told to stay at home and do your own thing, especially if you’re being paid to do so, is the sort of situation a lot of us could […]

Embracing Bad News

I guess embracing bad news comes just a little easier when you realise that it isn’t just you that’s feeling the pressure the Covid-19 outbreak has brought to all of our lives. Everyone in the world is in the same place right now. Fearful? Quite probably. Frustrated? Again, yes. Confused? I’d say there’s a lot […]

Aspirations for All

I’ve recently been the guest speaker at an event organised by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive in my home city of Belfast.

Past, Present, Future

It is said Christmas is a time for giving. I’ve been doing a bit of that myself over the last couple of weeks or so, a bit of Christmas goodwill that was precipitated by my birthday at the beginning of this month. I decided to give away hundreds of copies of ‘The Stupid Footballer Is […]

Trust in the Process

I’ve always had faith that if you trust in the process everything will work out in the end. I’ve just been reading a great email. It was from a speaking agency wondering if I would be interested in delivering a Keynote Speech for a ‘blue chip’ company, one of the major players in the world […]

Making Things Happen

So, how’s your summer been? Has a beach featured? The occasional bar or two? My summer was all set to be a quiet one but I’m all about making things happen. One that might, in the end, have featured any of the above attractions. I didn’t have any work booked. So the temptation to take […]

Time for a Change

Do you watch Dragons Den? You’ll be familiar with James Caan then. He’s the man who, for me, is responsible for the greatest change when it comes to choosing how I live my life. “When everyone is turning right then you should turn left”. It’s a philosophy I’ve tried to follow as best I can. This […]

How to be a Mexican Fisherman

I’ve a wee parable about modern life for you to read this week. It’s called The Story Of The Mexican Fisherman. You can read it by clicking here. It’s a tale that has, admittedly, done the rounds. So you may be familiar with it. But, even if you are, what about the message behind it? […]

It’s All About Balance

For those who live outside the bubble of the game, the life of a professional footballer probably looks as close to perfection as possible. Especially for those players who are established at Premier League level. Now, before you think I’m going to contradict all of the above: don’t worry, I’m not. It can be a […]

Return of the Mac

Contrary to what people might have been thinking, I haven’t died. Not yet. In fact I’ve just returned from a two week Sports Psychology speaking tour of America. Fourteen days and fourteen seminars across seven states at some of their most respected Universities, Colleges and Soccer Clubs. It has been an absolute privilege. I ...
