My guest on the programme is Ross McWilliam, and he is the man who changed a million lives. Ross is the master, at the mindset and self-belief stuff, and well worth a listen.
Like all of my guests, the journey for Ross was not a straight line. Failing his exams at 16, was a setback but he did not let that stop him. It was his desire to prove people wrong that drove him forward; he started what he calls an educational crusade with travel. Along the way, he worked in many roles including a fast food shop and managing a gym.
In his early 30s with a masters degree in physical education became a high school teacher and college lecture.
A career change opened the opportunity for public speaking, and by 2012 that he leapt into full time presenting and writing. Following his educational experience and background, he delivers talks to both children and teachers, children’s books on mindset followed. The big message for Ross is inner confidence and self-belief.
Ross McWilliam Mindset and Self-belief

During that time he has worked in over 1500 schools and businesses. He and is a regular guest on TV and Radio programmes, talking about mental health wellbeing and stress management.

What next Post COVID 19
Outside of the critical industries and health professions, lockdown life for many has been a surreal journey. Life has been on hold; however, the end is in sight, and it is time to be thinking about what next.
We are in for a journey that is for sure, as the threat passes the world will return to a new normal.
What Did You Discover?
Many people in China valued the lockdown; it is rare for families to spend extended times together. For them, it was a precious time.
It was an opportunity to discover more about ourselves. In the west, some found they needed less stuff and spent less money. It is amazing the UK banks reported that £6 billion of credit card debt was repaid.
Some people discovered they could work from home and lots of travels was not necessary.
Other now dread the prospect of returning to work and others are not sure what they will be returning to.
Maybe it is a time to change, have you been making plans or waiting?
Did You Take the Time to Get Stuff Done?
It is interesting given space and opportunity to do something, many people just sit in neutral. For some, they binge on Netflix or find other distraction.
If that was not you. Well done, but please read on.
NEW VIRTUAL EVENT
There is a new virtual event planned for July, It will be 5 days and we are going to nail this subject. It will be those that can implement over the coming months that will thrive is a post COVID world.
I want to hear from people on both sides of the coin, those who are good at being productive and from those who find it a challenge.
We all get the same hours in a day and some of us achieve so much more than others.
What is the story for you?
