There are no accidents in life ...

It's no accident that you stumbled across my website!

Something you may or may not even understand directed you here. What was it?

Do you want more from life? Do you know deep inside you can be doing more than you are? Do you feel something is missing? Do you have a desire but feel unsuited, ill-equipped or unqualified?

If that's you ... I know how you feel. If you're anything like I was ... you are ambitious, have a big vision but feel that you lack the skill, ability, contacts, experience, finances and know-how to make it happen.

I felt that way as a skinny, sooky little kid when I dreamed of playing professional football ... how did I do it?

I felt the same way as work-obsessed, time poor, ex-footballer,  non-reader and non-writer when I decided to write a book ... how did I become a best-selling author?

I learned that being successful is not what I thought it was about. It's not about ... time, talent, age, experience, background or any of the other things most people believe are required for amazing success. What I found was ... when you want something badly enough, you follow some simple principles, you act every day and decide to finish what you start ... you can do anything. No matter how unlikely it may seem.

Please look around my site, enjoy my blogs, attend my events and see what resonates with you. I would love to help you with your wellbeing, becoming a successful author or anything you want to achieve but feel that it's out of your reach.  Just know it's not out of reach and you can achieve ... your success will be no accident.

I joke that I am an Accidental Author, but the truth is, whilst some things are unlikely, there really are no accidents in life;

‘We create our destiny by dreaming bigger than most people would think reasonable, by believing in ourselves more than most people would think sensible, by making decisions that most people would think illogical and continuing to act way beyond the point that most people would have given up.'


Andrew's Blog ... the question is; can a footballer write and speak?

I don't know about you, but this doesn't look like an author and writer to me ... or most people!

Andrew loves writing and talking! This would sound strange to anyone who knew his background ... it certainly wouldn't suggest that a literary career would be on the cards. He was a typical footballer with a typical attitude towards reading & education ... a waste of hours between each opportunity to play sport! He truly is an accidental author, speaker, writer and blogger!

He is passionate about helping others and through writing he feels able to reach more people. His books, videos & blog posts are all about helping people see, believe and fulfil more of the amazing potential they have ... that means you too! There is incredible possibility & potential in every person and there is an amazing impact through the power of written word.

Please enjoy Andrew's blogs (video and written) and please feel free to add any comments you see appropriate. 

You will immediately find... Freedom through love!

Posted 10/11/2017

What is freedom? It is many things to many people. Most people consider freedom in a physical sense; free from prison, free from a toxic or abusive relationship, free from a job that is no fun, free from disease or free from some other undesirable situation. There is; financial freedom, personal freedom, physical freedom and many other types of freedom we may be working towards. Many of them seem, and are, difficult to achieve and a long way off. There is, however, one freedom available right now. It’s the most important freedom you can achieve, and, it will change your life forever.

Honestly, if it's not working... Flip your thinking!

Posted 10/7/2017

Have you ever heard the saying, Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.’? Well, I hate to say, based on that definition, and, including myself here, there are many insane people in the world! If you ever catch yourself saying things like; she’ll be right mate,’ ‘at least I’m doing something,’ ‘something is better than nothing’ orimagine what I’d be like if I wasn’t doing this,'  then, I want to encourage to stop doing what you’re doing. It’s clearly not giving the result you want, instead… flip your thinking!

Get rid of the noise and… Simplify, simplify, simplify!

Posted 9/30/2017

When it comes to simplicity, animals get it right. That’s not a negative or a criticism, it’s actually an amazing characteristic. If we, mere humans, behaved more like animals when it came to simplicity and focus, we would achieve much more in our lives. Our dog, Mr Big, is a prime example. He lives for one reason and one reason only… to eat! The only time he shows affection is when there’s a chance it will result in food for him! When he looks at me at meal time – which is twenty-four-seven for him – I can see in his eyes that there is nothing else happening to distract him from his task. He is focused on that one task, goal, aspiration or whatever you want to call it. We have a lot to learn from animals.

Reading will save you from... Dry bread and tea!

Posted 9/23/2017

The fact that you are reading this blog means that I am probably preaching to the converted this week. Personally, I have evolved from someone who never read – nor valued reading – to someone who started to see some benefits in reading, to someone who makes his living from the written word to where I am today. Today I am 100% passionate about and committed to the incredible power of the written word. I know that reading the right things each day will change your thinking, influence your actions and enhance your life. My goal of this weeks blog is for you to believe me.

Be the person who will just… Get on with the job!

Posted 9/16/2017

A while ago, I noticed that the vast majority of people I met and associated with spend much of their time complaining about one thing or another. They spent their lives focussed on what they don’t want, don’t have and don’t like. As soon as I became aware of this trend, I realised the negative impact it was having me, my attitude and my life. At that time, well over ten years ago now, I decided to change it. I actively sought out positive people and groups to associate with, and, my life has changed immeasurably as a result. When you are used to positivity, negativity stands out like a sore thumb!

The discomfort is temporary, so… Bust through to Freedom!

Posted 9/8/2017

What is it that really stops us living the best life we can live? When a life of freedom is available for all of us, why do so many people live without? They live without enough time, without enough money, without enough choices and without enough joy. I’m including myself in this as I am still not where I want to be. As amazing as my life currently is, I still don’t have the level of freedom I really want. I know what it is, I know what is required and I know what I need to do. So, why don’t I just do it? I’m guessing it’s the same reason why you don’t have the level of freedom and choice that you want. For me, it’s fear of price to be paid; the pain, sacrifice and discomfort I know I’ll have to go through to get it. But recently I have been inspired by a dog!

Keep it simple, otherwise you’ll just be… Thanked for the Chicken!

Posted 9/2/2017

There is one thing I have learned over the course of my life and one thing I continue to learn. That is the concept of keeping it simple. They say that any fool can make something complicated, but it takes a true genius to keep it simple. Think about your own life, what is it you enjoy the most? Is it time with family? Is it reading a book? Is it writing, playing golf or gardening? Is it looking a beautiful view or watching the sunset? Whatever it is, I’m guessing that it is pretty simple. Would I be right? So then, why is it we over-complicate and over-think things? We seem to go out of our way to make things harder than they need to be. This week, my message to you is keep it simple, or you will be thanked for the chicken.

You’re not governed by the marketplace, but by what you’re… Prepared to do!

Posted 8/25/2017

There are three types of people in the world, and, you and I fall into to one of these three categories. There are the people who make things happen. Then there are the people who watch things happen. Then the last group of people is definitely not where you want to be… these are the people who wonder what happened! We have possibly fallen into each category at some stage of our lives. I know I have. What’s important is; not where you’ve been, but where you end up! It’s all based on what you’re prepared to do.

You can’t run an 8-minute mile pace to achieve… A 4-minute mile!

Posted 8/18/2017

Are you a runner? Have you ever been a runner? Have you ever had to run? Have you ever been chased by a wild animal or a crazy person? Have you ever had to sprint to catch a train, tram or bus that was about to leave? If you are like me, running is painful, so I want to get it over and done with as quickly as possible! The slower my pace, the longer I have to suffer, and, the less benefits I will get from doing it in the first place.

Beware the tyranny of ‘OR’ and adopt… The genius of ‘AND’!

Posted 8/12/2017

Are you ready for abundance? Do you want more from life? Would you like to have more time, more money, more love, more health and more passion than you ever thought possible? It’s as simple as swapping over two little words. Just switch AND for OR and see what happens!

Jim Collins wrote a book called, Good to Great. I haven’t read the book, but a mentor of mine was talking about it in a presentation he was doing during the week. He was speaking to a group of people who were interested in diversifying their income, open to other financial options and wanting more in their lives. That is why I was there! As part of his introduction, he touched on the dilemma that most people in the twenty-first century are experiencing; not enough time and/or not enough money.
