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. 

In your busy life, as you strive for more... Don't miss the obvious!

Posted 2/24/2018

I’m continually amazed at the simplicity of success. I have spent a vast majority of my life trying to complicate things, because, that’s what I thought was required. What I’ve learned is that, the more complicated we make something, the more difficult achieving the desired result really is. I’m unsure of the actual source, but, I believe it may be Albert Einstein who said, Any fool can complicate things, it takes a genius to simplify them.’ Every day I’m learning that there is nothing complicated about achieving anything you want. The key seems to be the willingness to stop looking for the difficult and just be aware of the obvious.

Stop hoping, and... Start expecting!

Posted 2/17/2018

Have you ever been at the beach and fed the seagulls? Has there ever been any doubt those birds will want the food you are offering? Have you ever had to chase them, catch them and force the bread down their throats? Of course not, it was an expectation that they would come to you, right? What would happen if, even with the best intentions, you did chase them and try to force feed them? Well, as much as they may want the food you are offering, they would fly away from from you because you are scaring them. If you just sprinkle the bread on the ground and walk away, they will come to eat.

It's time to kill the... Monster in your head!

Posted 2/10/2018

In life, it’s easy to blame many things for the results we get. The reality is that, if you’re not getting what you want, it’s because of the monster in your head. It’s far too often we build some small task or challenge up into something so huge that we can paralyse ourselves from even attempting it. The thing that is stopping you, is not what you are worrying about. What’s stopping you is the monster in your head. Now is the time to slay that monster, or, it will continue to stop you, trick you and lead you down a path you don’t want to go.

Sometimes, you just need to... Do it with S.W.A.G!

Posted 2/3/2018

Someone who walks with swagger, has confidence and certainty about what they’re doing and where they’re heading. Most people do not walk with swagger! Most people walk with fear, doubt and uncertainty about what they want and how they will ever achieve it. That being the case, I don’t want to talk any more about swagger, but instead I want to discuss S.W.A.G. This blog is specifically for people who may not be feeling overly confident, could be overthinking things, are possibly talking themselves out of what they want and are probably frozen in a place of inactivity. If this is you, maybe it’s time for S.W.A.G!

Talent seems important, but... Effort counts twice!

Posted 1/27/2018

Talent is a buzz word these days. Talent acquisition, talent identification, talent management, talent this and talent that! We all have talents that are unique to us, and, others that are not. My question, and what I want to challenge in this week’s blog, is to determine whether talent is most important when it comes to achieving success in whatever you are striving for.

You've got to work hard to... Make it easy!

Posted 1/20/2018

We all want it easy, don’t we? Me too! We often look at the things we want, the life we wish to live, and, it will often include things like; travel, lying on a beach, sipping cocktails, eating amazing food, relaxing, laughing with people we love and doing stuff that’s really fun, and, easy. Would you agree? The problem is that easy is not easy. Therefore, many people who want so much for their life to be easy, fun and fabulous, aren’t necessarily prepared or willing to do what’s required to get it there.

There are times when you do need to... Sweat the small stuff!

Posted 1/13/2018

The book, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, was written by Richard Carlson and published over twenty years ago. It’s been an incredibly successful global best-selling book. I’ve read it, I loved it and I have implemented many of his suggestions into my own life, and, they have made a positive difference, for sure! I just want to make sure you can differentiate between the small stuff not to sweat, and, the small stuff you need to sweat!

Don't underestimate the... Power of daily habits

Posted 1/6/2018

It’s a week into the new year already and I’m sure you’ve been bombarded with; New Years resolution ideas & strategies, goal setting seminars & programs, new phone apps and online programs. Then there’s all the lose-weight fast, get-rich quick, explode your business and all the other clever products, services and ideas that flood the market place in January every year. It’s exhausting, overwhelming and terrifying, isn’t it! I’m here to tell you, it doesn’t need to be. It can, in fact, be exciting, energising and very manageable. The first thing you need to do is stop listening to anyone offering an easy, quick-fix approach to success. I hope you have sat and thought about what 2018 will look like for you. I hope you have set some goals and I hope you believe it’s possible. However, nothing will happen without a plan for action, and, positive daily habits.

A fresh year, and... A fresh beginning!

Posted 12/29/2017

If you are reading this blog, it’s either the last days of 2017 or the first in 2018. I don’t know how your year finished and I don’t know how you’re feeling about the new year. I would, however, love to encourage you to learn from 2017, let go of what you need to let go of, be proud of what you have achieved and look forward to 2018 with renewed enthusiasm. It’s a blank page, an open book and the possibilities are unlimited. My blog this week is going to be a little different than normal. Less fluff, as I tend to offer, and more of a tangible, valuable and strategic action plan to help you make 2018 your best year ever. So, are you ready to shake off the challenges of the previous year and launch into a new beginning for 2018?

Make no mistake... You are incredible!

Posted 12/23/2017

There are no mistakes. You are not here by accident. You didn’t just randomly appear on this earth, and, you are not a waste of space. You, my friend, are a very special and unique individual. You have talents, abilities and influence that no-one else has. You are here for a very important reason and, whether you know it, believe it or not, you are making a difference in people’s lives, even as you read this blog. I’m not sure how 2017 is finishing for you, but, I want to make sure you know – without any question of a doubt – that you are incredible and can launch into a new year with confidence, expectation and knowledge that it will be your best year yet. We are our own worst enemy, aren’t we? So, as you are processing what I’ve just said with your own self-critical spin, I want to ask you this, why not you and why not now?
