...simple pleasures


“I have never been a millionaire.
But I have enjoyed a great meal,
a crackling fire, a glorious sunset,
a walk with a friend, a hug from a child,
a cup of soup, a kiss behind the ear.  
There are plenty of life’s tiny delights
for all of us.”
― Jack Anthony

...All Colours..

 
We are all flowers in the Great Spirit's garden. 
We share a common root, and the root is Mother Earth. 
 The garden is beautiful because it has different colours in it, 
and those colours represent different traditions and cultural backgrounds.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-changes...


When a big change occurs in your life it forces you to change direction. Sometimes the new path may not be easy, but you can be absolutely certain that there is magnificence for you on the new path. You can be absolutely certain that the new path contains things that you could not have experienced otherwise. When we look back at a negative event that occurred in the past, we often see how in fact it transformed our life. We see how that event directed us toward a life that we would not change for anything.  - The Secret

...our inner magic!


This is a great speech by JK Rowling in her 
Harvard Commencement Address.

It's full of amazing quotes.  Here are just three magical nuggets of wisdom...

‎"It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live
 so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, 
in which case you have failed by default."

"Those who choose not to empathize enable real monsters. 
For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves, 
we collude through our own apathy."

“We do not need magic to change the world, 
we carry all the power needed inside ourselves already: 
we have the power to imagine better.”

- JK Rowling

...losing your way.


Me x 3 at M8 Media...



You'd think us voice artists would be pretty used to the sound of our own voice, right? Usually, that's true but on Friday, I had the chance to do a voice project at M8 Media in Glasgow that tested me in a new way.  The task was to change just a few keys words to an on-camera corporate video I'd recorded a few months earlier by lip-syncing new audio with the on-camera presentation. I know some people are absolute pros at this but for me, it was a whole new experience!  It was a fun twist on a studio session, a creative challenge...and together with the awesome producers at M8 Media, we nailed it!

Thank you, guys! :)

...Ethical Success


"Ultimately the lessons are that winning at all costs is not winning at all. Winning is only winning when we do it ethically, honestly, humbly and with integrity. And if we want to feel proud of our success we need to start by ensuring we have an environment where people can speak up about ethical concerns. Such a culture might well have saved companies from Libor, phone hacking, PPI, horse meat and many other accidents and scandals."

Neil Crofts, Authentic Business Coach
