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. 

Everything you do is being watched, and... creating a legacy!

I think the thing every parent wants most, is to raise happy, healthy and successful children. I’m not a parent, but I’m sure those reading this would agree with me. Many parents go about this task in different ways. They try explaining, disciplining and directing their children down the path that will lead them to a great life. I don’t have children, but I was one, and, I know that none of those strategies ever worked for me. I hated, and still hate, being told what to do. So, I would like to tell you how my mother impacted my life the most, and still does today more than ten years after she has passed. It had nothing to do with what she said to me, and everything to do with what I saw her do.

No-one is perfect, so be... Honest with yourself!

Posted 11/11/2017

We like to be seen as having it all together, don’t we? We hate to let other people see or know that there are areas of our life not working as we wish they would work. We often put on a front, don’t we? We often pretend to be something we are not, because we are worried about what other people will think of us. Do you relate to what I’m saying? Here’s the problem with this strategy, you are not perfect and neither am I. Respect and power come only when we can be transparent and honest with ourselves.

Wherever I go... There I am!

Posted 11/4/2017

SEX!! I wanted to get your attention early in this week's blog, because, it’s going to be potentially challenging for you to read, just as it is for me to write. I was confronted in the last week, and it’s really stopped me in my tracks and got me thinking about some pretty deep stuff. I was sitting with a guy, I’d met only once before, and, he was very direct and honest with me. As uncomfortable as it was, I was very grateful for his questions. The first time we met, he asked me about my vision and what I was working towards. Then when we met the second time, he challenged me, and said, You mentioned that you wanted to live in Italy with your wife, and, spend your time writing, her designing and loving the lifestyle. My question to you is, why aren't you there already?'Now, to be honest, my very first, split second reaction was to tell him it was none of his business. But I didn’t, I thought about for a second, and answered with, 'Good question!'I could have danced around it, try to run away from it, but, no matter which direction I went, I would still be there!

It may be time to choose from... A different menu!

Posted 10/27/2017

If you go to a Chinese restaurant and you are scanning the menu, you are probably not going to find pizza on it! If you are sitting in an Italian restaurant because that is what you are used to, but feel like something different, you are not going to find Tandoori chicken on that menu. This is all pretty obvious, isn’t it? My question is; what do you want and what menu of life are you choosing from?

It's not a problem... it's just life!

Posted 10/21/2017

They say that there are two certainties in life; death and taxes!  That is true, but there are more certainties than that. Here are a couple more; you are amazing, you can choose to be happy and you are one hundred percent responsible for what you achieve in life. There is one more I want to discuss in this week's blog, and that is… in your life there will be things that happen which are not what you would probably choose. They are often referred to as problems, but it’s just life!

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!
