Regret is a really interesting thing... We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But the most important thing to know is that you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles and you are not your regret. You’re living here in the present moment with the power to shape today, your future and your perspective. Here’s a short list of the things you will likely regret...Do you agree? What else would you add? Let me know what you’ve regretted the most 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 if you’ve read this caption drop a like on the post and the last 5 emoji’s in your most recent emojis. Mine: 👏🏽😂📸🌎🤯

LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE... Societal programming convinced me and a generation that our best life was a materialistic shallow one. I definitely fell for it for the first 24 years of my life. Realising what really matters, and having the strength to refuse to conform to a false narrative about what my best life should look like, or what car fit the narrative of a “best life”, took me some time. I’m moving in the right direction. From everything credible that I’ve read over the last few years, it’s clear that living intrinsically (for your own internal reasons) results in more happiness and fulfilment than living for external validation - so by the very nature of feeling the need to tell everyone what I’m doing, where I’m eating or about the great experience I’m having, maybe that will send me in the direction of a life lived for external approval and therefore a less fulfilling life. By this logic, those living their best life, shouldn’t feel the need to tell you they are - conversely, those feeling the most empty, probably will... food for thought. What do you think?

KINDNESS. Statistically comedians are more depressed than the general population - the thought that people that bring the most joy, smile the most and laugh the most, suffer too, and often suffer more, is naturally hard to understand. The cashier you meet this week, the Uber driver, your colleagues at work, the grumpy kid at school... you’ll unfortunately have no idea what all these people are going through, your words and actions can have a tremendous positive or negative impact. You haven’t got to believe in Karma to know that how people feel is contagious, and it’s in all of our interests to ensure that those around us in our homes, offices, cities and countries and feeling the kindness that we want to receive. It takes a great deal of strength, humility and compassion to be kind, especially when someone (through the pain that they’re feeling) is being rude, unkind, or negative to you. Just remember, negativity doesn’t fix negativity. As MLK said hate doesn’t drive out hate, only love can do that. Kindness is the answer. Lastly, studies have shown that the kinder and more generous you are to others, the happier you’ll be within yourself - in that regard, kindness isn’t just a selfless thing, it’s also hugely a hugely beneficial to you too.

Knowing what to replace, and having the discipline, strength and conviction to replace it, is a major major key. This speaks to the doctrine of marginal gains which is all about how small incremental improvements in any process, adds up to a significant improvement when they are all added together. If you make 100 1% changes in your life, your life will 100% change. I’ve always obsessed about the small marginal gains and the small details, I think people that work with me will tell you that. I do this because I know that ignoring lots of small problems creates one big problem, in the same way that ignoring one big problem creates a big problem. So here’s my advice, think about the small things in your life that you can change, what are the small replacements you can make? Focus on the things that you know are having a negative impact, but naturally your Brian tells you it’s not a “big enough issue to worry about right now”... go for that... fix that.... another fundamental truth of life is that the things that are easy to change... are also easy not to change.... it’s easy to brush your teeth everyday, so it’s also easy not to brush your teeth everyday. Replace lots of small bad habits, bad people, bad situations, and your life will see big change!! You have to believe in this, it’s a mindset that’s changed my life and can change the trajectory of yours in your relationships, work, finances, health, mental health and everything in-between! If you got this far in my caption first of all thank you! Leave a 🔁 (emoji that most represents replacing things) so I know who did 🙏🏽 What else are you replacing? Have you started replacing anything in your life? What was the impact? Let me hear your thoughts below 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

FREEDOM FROM TIMELINES = a happier way to live. Our sense of exploration and excitement is almost something that society asks us to hand back with age... I think this is so tragic. According to work studies, we feel deadened and ultimately depressed when we lose our freedom and our sense of personal control - yet for some reason society has conditioned us to give it up and replace it with inflexible commitments, the older we get. How about no. How about we stay curious, lost, exploring, risky and adventurous for now and forever. So much stagnation, mid-life crises and depressions seem to originate from focusing too much on what we “have to do” for too long, and not what we “want to do”. I guess my thought today is about protecting yourself from the dangerous pressure of timelines and expectations and focusing on adopting a young and free forever. This doesn’t mean don’t have kids (kids are amazing) this doesn’t mean don’t get married (that’s your call) it’s a mindset towards life that says “today is not too early, and today will never be too late, to do whatever I want to do, and become whoever I want to become - you decide your timeline, nobody else”. Agree? Thoughts to add? Let me know below or just leave a little ❤️ emoji if you read all of this 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽

Just because a situation doesn’t want to meet your standards, doesn’t make your standards invalid, too ambitious or too much. Your standards are the last thing you should be willing to change. Change the person, change the job, change the relationship. Don’t let toxicity, a manipulator or money convince you that you have to adjust your boundaries, lower your standards or accept less. Deep down you know your worth and something, someone and somewhere there’s an alternative option willing to honour it. Have faith, be patient and move on! 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 does this resonate?

This is from the “things getting older taught me” collection of my iPhone notes. Growing up I thought quantity was everything... more friends... more social media brags that I was ballin’ in clubs.... more flings with people that meant nothing... As I’ve started to value my time more and more and as I’ve started to understand the difference been fleeting short term pleasure and genuine fulfilment, I’ve realised that that quality in my life is everything. It’s ironic that those that chase “more” end up with “less”. It’s so important to double down on quality in your life... quality people... pets... partners... and experiences. The most amazing memories I have aren’t in nightclubs ordering champagne with strangers that I didn’t know or care about, they’re helping my family out, going to coachella with great friends, traveling to Thailand with my best friends and working towards goals and achieving them with my friends at work. Quality matters more. Please please remember that! Do you agree? Let me know your thoughts below 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 going to start putting some of your responses on my story xxx ❤️❤️

Do not get it twisted. Do not fall for it. Love, leadership and friends should never ever try to control or dominate you. Control and domination are a precursor of toxic situations that lead to mental health damage. If they love you, if they’re a good leader and if they’re a true friend they’ll give you freedom autonomy and trust. Agree? Have you been in a situation like this at work? In your relationships? I’m a friendship? Let me know if this resonates 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 I’ll respond to all ❤️

YOU CANT FOLLOW FAKE AND EXPECT TO FIND REAL ❌❌❌ One of my favourite books by @johann.hari beautifully details how our generation are being misled by junk / fake values - it talks about how if your life is influenced and driven by junk values, the chances are, according to Professor Tim Kassar, you’ll be more anxious, more depressed and you’ll experience less Joy. I’m going to keep it facts... in life, some of our guilty pleasures, that seem so harmless, are silently causing us tremendous mental harm. Following fake people, live their fake lives and push their fake junk values on to you, is not good for you, just like going to McDonald’s and eating burgers is not good for the body, allowing yourself to be influenced by the wrong people, is not good for your mind. One of the most important things I did last year was unfollowing and/or muting people across all my timelines that were subtly influencing my negatively... just like their subtle influence can quite literally ruin your life, their subtle absence has quite literally changed my life for the better. You should do this on your timelines but also in real life too. It’s hard to stop the damage a bad influence in your life can do to you, but it’s easy to prevent that person from ever having the opportunity to do so in the first place. Unfollow them, cut them, stop giving them your time and mind 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 REAL ONLY. Agree? Have you made any changes in your life? Let me know! Replying to everyone in the comments 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Negative situations are incredibly hard to move on from. Firstly, they have a gravitational pull of “comfort” that tries to pull you back to the unhappy “security” that you once knew. Secondly, the human mind, when full of the emotions caused by feeing out of comfort, has an incredible way of forgetting how unhappy, uncomfortable or unfulfilling your precious situation really was. Hindsight ends up glamorising a moment that once made us unhappy. All of this can lead to moments of weakness where we question ourselves.. we question if we were right to leave that relationship, that job, that stories situation. This post is just a reminder that things often get worse before they get better, that’s how growth works for all of us. Moments of weakness or regret are natural, any thing that once occupied large parts of your mind, life and comfort often get looked on with rose tinted glasses and the nature of all growth, means you first have to break something to grow, whether that be muscle, confidence, a negative relationship or your career. Keep going, have faith and continue to have the strength to believe in and prioritise your happiness over your history. ❤️❤️❤️ Share your thoughts and feelings below 👇🏽👇🏽 I’ll respond to all comments 🙏🏽🙏🏽

FULFILMENT OVER PLEASURE 🙏🏽 the older you get, the more you realise the importance of meaning and substance in everything you do and everyone you associate yourself with. When I was younger, my life heavily centred around getting money, getting laid and creating status. The older I’ve got, the more I’ve realised that all of those things are the opposite of happiness, they’re short term, they drain energy and most importantly time. A life of substance is a life of happiness. Also, shout out to pets... the underrated hero’s of the human experience. Do you agree? What makes you happy? Tell me what you’ve learnt? Also, pets... have you got one? What impact has your pet had on you, be honest!! I’ll reply to all comments 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

One of the ways we all cope with our problems, is by trying to make them someone else’s problem so someone else can carry the load with us. One of the ways we all deal with our own insecurities, fear and doubt... is by projecting those negative feelings on to others. We tear others down when we’re feeling down. This fundamental understanding explains why your boyfriend or girlfriend might call you things that you know they’re dealing with themselves, someone might belittle your dreams because they don’t believe in themselves, someone might try and control you because they’re lacking securing, power and self esteem themselves. Realising this helps limit the damage their words or actions do, but it DOES NOT JUSTIFY IT. YOU DO NOT DESERVE IT. YOU DO NOT HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO FIX OTHERS. Your 1st priority is making sure you’re happy and healthy. Your first job is self protection. Without that, there’s very little you can do to help others anyway. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments below? Have you experienced this before? What’s your story? I’ll reply to all 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽❤️

Self harm takes a variety of forms. Mental self harm is invisible, destructive and crippling. If you do anything listed above you are committing mental self-harm. “To love oneself,” wrote Oscar Wilde, “is the beginning of a life-long romance.” As is the tale of every love story, times will bring both sun and storm, testing our deepest intentions on how we relate to ourselves. Love comes easy on good days, when our self-esteem stands tall on our accomplishments. It’s when we fall that our self-directed goodwill often deserts us. Suddenly, we remember all our faults. Our internal monologue muds with harsh judgments. We blame and shame ourselves for our pain. We abandon ourselves and look to whoever (and whatever) would give us comfort. One way to winning back our own hearts and reclaiming our well-being is through self-compassion. Compassion begins with getting some distance from ourselves. Ask yourself: “What would I say to a dear friend in a situation like this and how would I say it?” You can train your mind to treat you, how you treat your closest friends. The key is creating that distance from the pain, and negativity to be able to have that best-friend perspective of yourself. Meditation is a great way to do this. Writing on paper how you’re feeling and then replying below as if it was your best friend is also a great way to build this habit. Let me know your thoughts and challenges below is there anything you’ve done that’s helped with mental self-harm? Please do share and engage with others below ❤️🙏🏽🙏🏽 I’ll reply to all comments as usual.

We are often thankful for good times, with good people. But in hindsight, I owe so so much of my personal development to hard times and bad people. Nobody wants to go through hard times and nobody wants to experience and have to deal with the damage that toxic people can have... but once you have, as hard as it may be, there always tends to be something, some strength, some wisdom and some lesson that only that situation could have taught you. You can be grateful for the lesson, even if you aren’t grateful to the person that taught you it. We are the sum total of the lessons we’ve learnt, and we’re the sum total of that which we have overcome. Have faith that if yesterday was hard, the lessons learnt will serve to make tomorrow better. ❤️ share your stories and thoughts with me and everyone else here? Agree?

By trying to control, that which we should not control, we always hurt the thing we’re trying to control. The person we love, the amount we’re respected and the past ... are all out of our control. If we try to control these things, we hurt them. Similarly, when we allow our self to be controlled by others, partners, money or opinions, we risk becoming depressed, trapped, and anxious. Things grow when they have freedom and space. Things die when they’re controlled and suffocated. Agree? Let me know what else you would add? Have you been controlled? have you been controlled by your thoughts? By overthinking? Let me know in the comments, I’ll reply to all of you, please make sure you help others in the comments too ❤️

To have a great relationship with someone else, sometimes you have to work on the relationship you have your yourself first. If you’re emotionally insecure, if you’re financial unstable, if you’re unfulfilled and unhappy then you are in need of something and thinking that one person can and should fulfill all of your needs, is dangerous and a tragically short-term way to think. The pressure that level of dependency will put on a relationship is both unfair and unsustainable. You will suffocate your partners independence and it's important to remember that needing a person too much comes from fear and insecurity, not from love, Because no matter how hard you search or how much you swipe, there is no type of love that can permanently fill the void in a person who does not love themselves already. There is no independence in dependency and the is no security in attaching yourself to a secure person. If you’re unhealthily dependent on someone you risk completely sacrificing your own sense of identify, and your self-worth will quickly become reliant on that relationship. Studies show that relationships where one partner is dependent on the other result in higher risks of depression, stress and conflict. Studies show that a dependent partner is more likely to tolerate an abusive relationship, and studies also show that when that relationship ends the feeling of grief that the dependent person can experiences, can be so overwhelming that they have a greater risk of falling into depression. We’re all jigsaw puzzles with missing parts. And you can find some of those missing pieces in close friends, in family, in your passions and in self, but It will never be one person’s responsibility to complete you.

WE ARE ALL GUILTY 🚨someone came up to me yesterday at an event and they said to me, that since they’ve started pursuing their passions and being themselves more, they’ve started to encounter resistance from someone close to them. Her question to me was “how do I deal with them?”. My answer: Once you’ve made it clear what you want and who you are, you have absolutely no obligation to fix the faults and issues in those around you that are causing them to want something less for you - stop believing that you have a responsibility to FIX other peoples faults... stop believing that their happiness and approval is your responsibility, that is absolutely their responsibility, it does not concern you, the only responsibility you have is a responsibility to protect your standard, your needs and your well-being. The same rational applies to your work, your relationships and you life generally. Spending your life trying to fix every toxic person and situation will come at the cost of your own happiness - and for the most part, it’s an impossible task. Self-protection, non-negotiable standards and learning to put yourself first for a change might just be the answer for you. A sudden move in this direction will cost you some of your current comfort, but it will earn you greater future happiness. Agree?

HONESTY is a long term game. Being honest isn't always easy, otherwise we'd all do it all the time, but for a variety of factors, sometimes, we all choose to dial back how we really feel. When it comes to what you want, it’s so unbelievably important to be honest with your friends, family, colleagues and partner. If you choose not to be honest about what you want, at best you will be misunderstood by the people that matter the most and at worst you will end up in a position that is far from what you desire. Being honest might cost you something, but the truth is, it will likely cost you something you don’t want anyway. The resistant and pain you might feel from being honest is a corrective shift, that shift puts you at the start of the path of what you do want. Don’t mourn the loss of something you didn’t want anyway, that was comfort and safety, not fulfilment and happiness. Have faith, strength and patience, and I promise you your new path will get you there ❤️❤️❤️ Let me know your thoughts and experiences with this. Has honesty or dishonesty ever helped or hurt you? I’ll be replying and reading your comments as always... if you see someone in the comments with a problem, please do offer some advice and support (I love seeing that) 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

READ 👉🏽👉🏽👉🏽 “you’ve changed” is typically considered an insult, it’s usually said by people that don’t want you to change, or who might fear that the “new” version of you, may not want to associate with the same old version of them, it’s typically a way to get you to stop changing, to fall back in line and to remain as you are. Behind all of that controlling sentiment lives one of the biggest compliments you can receive. Change often represents levelling up, demanding more from life, relationships, people and your career. Change can mean making brave decisions that a previous version of you, might not have had the courage to make, change can mean focus, clarity of mind and progress. I know I’ve changed, I’ve been trying to change, I’ve been trying to improve and optimise myself to be happier, more present, more focused on things that matter, to spend more quality time with quality people and to release more of my potential from behind other people’s opinions... I have changed, and I’m hoping to change even more in the future! Have you changed? ❤️ Talk to me in the comments, have you undergone a personal transition / change, did you lose people? Was it unwelcome? What are you focusing on changing in the future? I’ll reply to all of your thoughts xx

The older you get, the more you realise that the phrase “quality over quantity” applies to the people you associate with, call your friends, love and work with more than any other part of your life. The invisible influence good people can have on your life can be transformative, the invisible impact negative people can have on your life can be devastating. I would rather have 3 people around me that are loyal, supportive and that understand me, than 100 people who don’t, or that pretend to. Quality over quantity. Let me hear your stories, have you lost good people and regretted it? Have you cut out bad influences and felt the benefit? Let me know below 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Who f*cking made all these stupid rules?!!! Honestly, 95% of my DM’s are from people who are anxious, worried and overthinking, because they are falling behind on societies timeline of who they’re meant to be by now. These societal timelines serve to make to rush you, to cause short-term decision making and to make you unhappy. Take your time. Patience. Stop comparing yourself to strangers, friends and family. You are different, we all are, and there can be no societal timeline for meeting the *RIGHT* person, self development or finding the right career.

“BUT IF ACCEPTED...” 👈🏽👈🏽👈🏽 the key words in this post. Holding on to the thought of someone, holding on to the hope that they might change, holding on to the hope that a situation will change after years and years of their actions speaking louder than their words... is the definition of insanity and is a sure-fire way of wasting more and more of your precious life. I wrote this post, because I’m surrounded by people close to me who have lost someone that at one point was their world, and I’ve watched them struggle to move on, I’ve seen them convince themselves that there’s nothing better out there for them. However, the people that mean the world to me, came out of nowhere, often at the most unexpected time from the most unexpected place. These life changing people come out of nowhere. If you don’t believe in this, if you don’t have faith that the people you need in your life are on the way, there’s a real practical scientific risk that you might just miss them.... I really really mean this. In this context, being brave enough to look forward into the unknown, is the only way you move forward. ❤️❤️❤️ talk to me, does this resonate with you? What’s your story?

PRIORITIES. Understanding the importance of your own mental health is a matter of understanding your personal priorities. Your mental well-being is the foundation of all success, all happy relationships, all progress and also your mental health is deeply connected to your physical health. Without your mental health you don’t have anything, and in some tragic cases, poor mental health has cost people their lives. This is a matter of priorities, please please please prioritise you, even if it means someone else is let down. In the long run, being “selfish” is the most selfless thing any of us can do for our friends, families and colleagues. Do y’all agree? Tell me your stories? What have you learnt?

KEEP GOING ⛈🌨⛈. When I decided that I didn’t want to go to university at age 18, after attending just one lecture, I hit years of resistance, financial resistance, family resistance, friendship resistance and the resistance that trying to create a new life in a big scary unknown world, as a clueless broke 18 year old, presents you. That resistance was a symptom of positive change. It was me breaking free... breaking out... and breaking towards everything I knew I wanted. What I wanted mattered more to me than what I had, so the risk wasn’t leaving, the risk was NOT leaving. When I hit the resistance, when every bank told me I couldn’t open a business account because my credit was ruined, when I went hungry for weeks, it would have been so easy to return to university or home, and go back to the life working in call centres, while studying at a university that bored the life out of me - a life that that deep down I knew wasn’t meant for me... but I knew that my long term happiness mattered more than the short-term comfort and I was completely prepared to give up everything I was, for everything I wanted to be. So I persisted. It just so happens that at the end of every storm you often find nice things like rainbows... or peace, happiness and freedom, and that’s exactly what I found. Thank god I didn’t go back, thank god I weathered the storm and thank god I believed in and felt I deserved better.... whatever storm you’re riding out, whether it’s a mental storm, a relationship break up, a bad career spell, a family storm or other... don’t ever stop believing that there’s better, happier and more fulfilling, at the end of the storm. Neither me or you know exactly what that looks like for you or how long it will take, but I’m completely completely convinced it’s there, and I’m completely convinced that you’re stronger than you think you are and I’m completely convinced that your strength will get there. ❤️ Share your thoughts and stories below for others and let me know if you have any questions, if you liked this post just leave a ❤️ in the comments and tag someone that needs to read this 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Finally managed to put into words what I’ve been wanting to say for a long time. SELF AWARENESS IS KING 👑 . From the ancient Greek Aphorism “know thyself” to western psychology, the topic of self-awareness has been studied by philosophers and psychologists for the last century. We all know smart people who are rude, self-centred, egotistical and continually demonstrate the same character flaws time and time again. No matter how many books they read or how “smart” they get, the most important lessons - the consequences of their actions, go unlearnt. When we focus our attention on ourselves, we evaluate and compare our current behavior to our internal standards and values. We become self-conscious as objective evaluators of ourselves. When we do this we learn, we grow and we become. When we do this, we’re able to take information we’ve read and act upon it without the flaws in our character getting in the way. You need humility to grow, you need to reflect, analyse, critic yourself - that’s the required foundation for all progress. Agree? Let me know your thoughts and also let me know if you know someone who is smart but lacks self awareness 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

FUTURE > FACADE. Faking It drains the resources you need to make it, it’s shallow, short-term, unfullfiliing and see-through. And this where sacrifice comes in, Are you really willing to sacrifice who you are, for who you want to become. Are you willing to put in years of work with no guarantee of reward in order to learn. I don’t know your answer… but a few years from now, the world will. Do you agree? Let me know your thoughts and stories below 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Comment “AGREE” if you agree 👇🏽 The minute you start making choices for you, and not for strangers on Instagram, ‘friends’ or family; everything changes. Once upon a time I really really cared what people thought. In fact, two years ago, I wouldn’t have posted pictures of myself, because I was too obsessed with how I might look and what people may then think, what girls might think, what strangers might think. Once upon a time I would never have put my opinions into the world, because people might think I thought I was some kind of “life advice guru”... and when I did, they’d give me a hard time about it - we’re all good at seeing past the 99 positive comments at that 1 negative one... and I was too. now, although I thrive on feedback, my self-esteem doesn’t depend on it. I do not care. I will not allow my dreams or my ambitions to be trapped behind someone else’s negative irrelevant opinion. I’m going to do me until it’s all over. Not only has this mindset allowed me to achieve more but I’m completely happy in who I am and where I’m at. It turns out my fears of “what might happen if...” or “what might people say if...” were actually the thing I should have feared the most..that was the thing that would have held me back and made me unhappy, not someone’s irrelevant opinion. Liberate yourself. Trust me. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽What do you think? Are you guilty of this? Be honest. If you agree drop a like and a comment - replying to everyone as usual xxx

Our generation are up to 3x more impatient than the generation before us according to a Gallup poll. We have unrealistic timelines for our own personal success because we get to see all the rewards, we get to meet the person half our age moving at triple the speed, but we don’t see the decade of dedication that earned that. I’ll never forget seeing that video of 8 year old Justin Bieber busking alone outside - 10 years later, he’s an “overnight success” selling out the biggest stadiums in the world. I desperately believe in focus. There are two approaches I can take in my own life in order to get to where I want to go. Approach 1) I can find the apparently fastest, easiest way, to trick the world into giving me what I want ASAP. Or I can take approach 2) Focus on becoming the type of person that can give enough value, to earn the amount of value I want in return. The second approach is the definition of longevity. The second approach sometimes takes a decade, sometimes more. The second approach is the ONLY way. In the long term, the world has a strange way, of giving you exactly what you’ve given it - in the short term that can sometimes feel out of balance - and you should expect it to - you should always be giving more than you’re asking for - that’s the definition of being considered “valuable”. My focus is on becoming a more valuable person, that’s the focus I’ve had for the last 8 years and it’s the focus I’ll have for the next 8 years. What are your thoughts? Agree? Disagree?

Your mind can change your reality because your reality is your perception and your perception is your choice.

It’s a trap. The more you create your expectations from what you want, for you, for your own reasons, the happier you’ll be. The more your expectations are derived from what others APPEAR to have, the more unhappy you will be. Don’t believe the gram. What do you think? Can you relate? Share your thoughts below 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
