“I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can’t find anybody who can tell me what they want.” Mark Twain It’s a great quote from Mark Twain, isn’t it? Why is it that life seems at times so ridiculously simple and easy and yet a moment later or at other times, it can appear so elusive, frustrating, and complicated? I think the reason is that we have different parts of our brain operating at different times. Professor Steve Allen who authored the excellent Chimp Paradox, covers this notion wonderfully well by saying that we have three parts of our brain: t ..read more

“Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts.” (Sign hanging in Albert Einstein’s office at Princeton.) It’s that time of year when many of us tend to wrap up one year and plan for the next. This article covers: Why we do it Where it comes from My process of reviewing one year and planning the next. An invitation for you to join me in making next year a great one for you. Why we do it now, at the end, and beginning of each year: It turns out that New Year’s resolutions were first used by the Babylonians more than 4,000 years ago to please and win ..read more

3 Ways to overcome a negative mindset

Have you ever experienced ritual humiliation? As a young man aged 19, I was going through military training to become an officer the royal Military Academy Sandhurst. We were new cadets, and the first six weeks was all about breaking us down to build us up so we engaged in a lot in some mind-numbing activities like, ‘bulling’ boots – polishing to a glass-like shine – ironing, and cleaning lavatories with toothbrushes late into the night and being deprived of sleep so that they could test our decision-making, tenacity and resilience. One evening we were bulling boots and the instructor, a Colou ..read more

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Is this true?

Fear is the number one mojo blocker, no question. The acronym fear can stand for forget everything and run or false expectations appearing real! I think the latter is more useful! Take a moment to think about something you really want to do in your heart completely free self expressed anything is possible. Got something? Could be a conversation you wanna have a ticket you want to buy a thing you want to do dance riotous on the top of a hill in the wind and the rain. Now notice how quickly fear kicks in it’s too hard I’ve tried before what will people think I don’t have the money it’s not the r ..read more

5 Proactive tips to end suffering in silence
Simon Ekin
by Simon Ekin

I have it on good authority that what frustrates women most about us men is our ‘suffering in silence.’ We can all relate, I am sure. You know when something is up for someone, you can see it – the change in face, body, and tone of voice. And then we ask, “what’s up?” Answer: “Nothing.” Whilst I focus on working with men, I believe that we are ‘human first;’ for example, the trait of ‘suffering in silence’ is known to people, old and young. Why do we men particularly do this? I can only rely on my experience accurately, but I am sure some of what I say will resonate with you: I saw my dad do ..read more

Why it’s important to know your purpose. 
Simon Ekin

Notice your answer to this question: what is your purpose? If you asked me, I would probably give you a different answer each time, depending on what is going on with me and my life at the time, and that’s from someone who has done a lot of work and reflected on this. I would love to say, to save the world, end poverty or bring lasting peace (which it sometimes is!) but the reality is, it varies.  I might say: To make a difference. To help as many men as possible to get their Mojo back. To be happy. To leave the world a better place. I think the reality is that our purpose finds us, whe ..read more

How to find your purpose in 5 minutes.

Mike Tyson said, “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.” Such eloquence! What I think Uncle Mike is saying is that when push comes to shove we will respond from our emotions and ‘great (logical) plans’ go out the window.  How do we manage this? Make your purpose good clear, simple and memorable so that when you get ‘punched in the face’ you never forget it and you won’t want to either because it fuels you, and guides you when there is nothing else left. It’s like the image of the firefighters – when there’s a fire, that needs to be put out, you focus on it and put a ..read more

Why growing  your moustache might get you more romance (in men’s mental health month.)

“Kissing a man without a moustache is like eating a steak without salt and pepper.” My grandmother! I don’t like moustaches. They give me the creeps, which is why it’s a really good idea that I have one this November.  November is Men’s Health Awareness Month, with International Men’s Day, falling on the 19th November. You may have heard the term, ‘‘Movember’ – Moustache and November, combined – which was a charity founded in 2003 and happens yearly, now, in many countries around the world. Because the message is so distinct and well, funny, it seems to have become an anchor for awar ..read more

How to discover your ‘Why?’ – Through storytelling in forest…?

Why? why? why? …“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”  Antoine de Saint-Exupery Why do you do what you do? I think this is probably the most important question we can answer, or be conscious of, as we go about living our lives. As you may know, since 1999 I have, in varying stages of intensity, delivered over 1,000 talks to strangers on planes, trains, cafes, places of worship, gyms, and saunas.  But about 2 weeks ago my brother Jono aske ..read more
