We all get caught up, disorientated or lost from time to time. Our goals may seem so far away, our inner compass may be off point and our paths may seem hazy. Sometimes all it can take to bring us out of a funk is a little motivation. A few inspiring words or quotes, or the recognition of a historical figure that has paved the way before us.

We hope that this page has the positive effect required for those that need it most…

 

“No such thing as spare time,
No such thing as free time,
No such thing as down time,
All you got is Lifetime... Go!”
— Henry Rollins

From the film, The Grey, we get to see a man’s last stand against all the odds. His life to this point has been harsh and ground hm into the dirt. Although only allegorical, we must ask ourselves would we continue to fight against the severest adversity in times of desperation? Do we have enough meaning in our lives as a foundation to keep moving forward? You will only realise the answer when the reaper comes knocking, but by then it may be too late… So wouldn’t it be better to put meaning and purpose into most or everything you do? “It might even be time to sacrifice what you love best so that you can become who you might become, instead of staying who you are…” - Dr Jordan Peterson.

Don’t be an Askhole

Love this little quote, I’m sure we’ve all been one at some point in our lives - usually when it involves a decision with regards to the opposite sex. Some people stay in the askhole zone, probably without realising it or even because objective advice isn’t what they wanted to hear. You check yourself regularly to make sure you’re not an askhole…

For those that don’t know, this is Clint Eastwood in his first major film, A Fist full of Dollars, a spaghetti western so called as it was shot in Italy (as well as Spain). Sergio Leone directed the film which was the first of a trilogy of spaghetti westerns featuring Clint Eastwood as the Man with No Name (For a Few Dollars More and The Good The Bad and The Ugly being the sequels). Apart from the obvious expansive cinematic landscape shots, intense facial close ups and rawness of the sets, in comparison with polished Hollywood style cowboy films of that era, the big plus was Clint Eastwood’s understated acting, especially in this scene. In a previous scene, the gang of cowboys had taunted his character as he arrived in town and shot their guns at the feet of his horse making it gallop off. This scene is one of many great scenes that Clint Eastwood steals and one of my favourites. I just love the way he portrays a fearless loner in the face of adversity whist managing to maintain a glint of humour in how he delivers the line “I don’t think it’s nice you laughin’…”. It’s at that point, the gang realise he must be insane as their faces tell the story…

Silence in the age of Noise

“all those days that came and went, I didn’t realise that was life…” The unfortunate thing is to have wasted such a large portion of the chance you had to live a richer life. That you avoided exploring your potential, you allowed yourself to be distracted by noise.

Cities of the dead…

Don’t die before you’re dead… Set backs and hard times are acceptable, tapping out early is not. The world is a wonderful place if you look hard enough. Keep moving forward, keep dreaming, keep creating, keep learning, keep grafting and support those that need it most.

Don’t listen to the critics

If anything is worth doing, then it’s worth doing badly. Start now and accept failure as education because there is NEVER a more perfect time to start than NOW!

Why complicate things?

How to help yourself win at life? Mind your own bees wax sunshine! Focus on the self and be careful about the vibes you emit out into the universe…

Don’t listen to social media pressure…

Life is not a race my friend… Do not lower your morals or expectations to get ‘there’ early…
