Nobody owes you a living…

by Dave Sabat 9 September 2013

The Bottom Line. FACE IT, nobody owes you a living. What you achieve, or fail to achieve in your lifetime, Is directly related to what you do, or fail to do. No one chooses his parents or childhood, But you can choose your own direction. Everyone has problems and obstacles to overcome, But that, too, […]

Not the usual New Year’s Resolution – No1

by Dave Sabat 29 December 2011

Listen, son: I am saying this as you lie asleep, one little paw crumpled under your cheek and the blond curls stickily wet on your damp forehead. I have stolen into your room alone. Just a few minutes ago, as I sat reading my paper in the library, a stifling wave of remorse swept over […]

Football Goalkeeper Motivation CD’s – Order Now to Enter The Free Prize Draw.

by Dave Sabat 5 December 2011

OK, let’s start from scratch. At the start of last season, professional football goalkeeper Richard Lee was way down the pecking order at Brentford FC in the goalie’s position but finished the season with a Player of the Season award and much praise for his cup heroics and his penalty saving skills. He subsequently cemented his […]

Derren Brown – Hero at 30,000 feet

by Dave Sabat 9 September 2010

Hm-mm, I watched this and must admit to mixed feelings. Derren Brown is someone who I find incredibly entertaining, his “tricks” using misdirection, showmanship etc. mostly leave me amazed and gobsmacked but as a fan I felt pretty let down. There were no “whoa” moments for me, none. Derren’s use of traditional hypnosis is obvious to […]

How strong are your emotional foundations?

by Dave Sabat 6 September 2010

Many people go through life justifying to themselves why they must do something or have to do something. It is always better to want to do something as opposed to thinking that we must do something, but our reasons for doing a certain thing very often are for others or the benefit of others. Whilst this can be […]

Attitude.

by Dave Sabat 28 July 2010

Attitude “The longer I live, the more I realise the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, […]

There aren’t many people that I pay attention to….

by Dave Sabat 22 July 2010

….because a lot of the self-help world seems to consist of paying someone else to show you how put your faith in something or someone else rather than take responsibility for your own actions and, most importantly, showing you how to take charge of your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Me? I’m one of the few […]

Persistence

by Dave Sabat 4 March 2010

A man meets a guru in the road. The man asks the guru, “Which way is success?” The robed, bearded sage speaks not, but points to a place off in the distance. The man, thrilled by the prospect of quick and easy success, rushes off in the appropriate direction. Suddenly, there comes a loud “SPLAT.” […]

Do it anyway.

by Dave Sabat 25 January 2010

I stumbled across this little piece on the Internet and it makes absolute sense to me. It is all about doing the right things because you want to, not because others see you do them. It is the difference between being superficial and being true to your own beliefs, it is the difference between telling […]

Motivation moment – how to stop your brain turning in to custard.

by Dave Sabat 18 May 2009

Because I have my kids over every other weekend, I usually only end up with one genuine chill-out day to myself in every fortnight, which is every other Sunday. I love having a lay in, getting a bundle of Sunday papers, having a pack of king prawns and a “I shouldn't really eat this sugar […]

Knowledge is Power – or is it?

by Dave Sabat 20 January 2009

There is an old saying that “Knowledge is Power” but is that really true? I don't think it is. I think that knowledge is potential power, and let me explain my definition of “power” in the context of this blog post. Power to me means results and outcomes over which I have control, I decide […]

Monday Motivation – the last one for now…

by Dave Sabat 28 July 2008

Recently I have taken a back step and done some work on myself, something that I should have done a while back. I get an immense amount of “job” satisfaction, if it can be called that, from helping people bring about positive changes in their lives but forgot to the same for myself. Although I practise […]

Monday Motivation – What’s your attitude like today…

by Dave Sabat 21 July 2008

Our attitude towards others, our work, our lifestyle & ourselves affects the outcome of any given moment. Whether we are likely to succeed or fail, love or hate, win or lose, be happy or sad, depends on our attitude. This short movie from Simple Truths is a nice little film designed to inspire you and change your […]

Monday Motivation – You have all the answers….

by Dave Sabat 14 July 2008

There was no Monday Motivation posting last week and that was deliberate. Last week, and this week, have the same theme. Whilst it is OK to seek guidance, advice, ideas, help, motivation, inspiration etc. from others, ultimately we are all responsible for motivating ourselves. Be happy, Dave. Please feel free to add a comment, add […]

Monday Motivation – Celebrate life more than death

by Dave Sabat 30 June 2008

On Saturday night I went to a family “do” where one of my relatives was celebrating his 80th birthday. It was a great evening and the birthday boy, Ron, gave some great performances on the drums with the band that he plays with. When the time came for him to say a few words, Ron […]

Monday Motivation – I wanted to change the world…

by Dave Sabat 23 June 2008

Sometimes a short story or a few words are all that is needed to kick start a different way of thinking. All of us go on many emotional and spiritual journeys throughout our lives and each one begins with a single step, or a single thought.   I Wanted To Change The World By Unknown […]

Monday Motivation – What is happiness?

by Dave Sabat 16 June 2008

Happiness means different things to different people. Rather than explain what I think happiness is, I'm going to list below some quotes from different people about happiness. We are all special, unique individuals and our own journey to understanding ourselves and reaching a state of inner peace will be completely different from someone else's path. […]
