  1. Be brave. Come alive.

    As we approach the unveiling of the Do What You Love e-course (back next Monday after two years, having undergone a major facelift!) I wanted to share a peek into the five weeks of class, by way of a series of fun doodles created by Melinda Walker of OneSquigglyLine.com, in response to the weekly videos shared in class, which were all professionally shot in HD on location here in Brighton.

    In Week Three ‘Be Brave. Come Alive.’, you’ll build up your bravery muscles — taking tiny risks + little steps to start doing what you love, just a little bit more. And in this week’s video I share a hilarious story about how I found myself in the arms of a billionaire…

  2. Excavate your story

    As we approach the unveiling of the Do What You Love e-course (back next Monday after two years, having undergone a major facelift!) I wanted to share a peek into the five weeks of class, by way of a series of fun doodles created by Melinda Walker of OneSquigglyLine.com, in response to the weekly videos shared in class, which were all professionally shot in HD on location here in Brighton.

    In Week Two of the five-week course ‘Excavate Your Story’, you’ll come to appreciate your unique experience and gifts, and find clues to “what’s possible” for your life + career…

  3. Choose your destination

    As we approach the unveiling of the Do What You Love e-course (back next Monday after two years, having undergone a major facelift!) I wanted to share a peek into the five weeks of class, by way of a series of fun doodles created by Melinda Walker of OneSquigglyLine.com, in response to the weekly videos shared in class, which were all professionally shot in HD on location here in Brighton.

    Week One of the five-week course is themed ‘Choose your destination’. In it you’ll embrace the idea that “doing what you love” isn’t selfish, but actually better for you, the people around you, and the entire world. The short film sees me out on a yacht, sharing the story of the moment that completely changed my life when I was 17 years old.

  4. What does your Real Wild Bio say? Communicate the real you with this new free resource

    RWB 550PX

    Can you imagine how different things would be if we had to apply for job vacancies with a document that showed who we really are, and what makes us extraordinary? Can you imagine if, instead of asking for a CV/resume, companies asked you to send in a Real Wild Bio*?

    This would be a quick run-down of all the important things in your life so far, showing what your world is like. Not a list of job titles, but of experiences you have had, things you have learnt, the difference you have made. It would be a demonstration of things that mean something real, and show how you came to be who you are today. It would show your triumphs, and how you have overcome tough times or failure. It would celebrate who you have become. It would be something that told what you are about, not what desk you used to sit at.

    Although it may still be some time before most companies ask for one of these, here at Do What You Love it is now part of our recruitment process.

    Use this opportunity to analyse your unique path, understand the story that has made you who you are today, and sell yourself better.

    In this guide (which is taken from the transformational online experience Do What You Love, which begins on Monday) we will walk you through the creation of your Real Wild Bio, which can be written or visual, perhaps as a series of photographs or pieces of art – whatever works for you.

    Find yourself somewhere quiet, get out your notebook and favourite pens, and get scribbling! Once you have captured all the juiciness that has gone on in your life so far, who knows what signs or fresh inspiration you might discover in there?


    button_realwildbiosCall for submissions:
    We are starting a new series on our blog showcasing the Real Wild Bios of extraordinary ordinary people. We would love to feature you! Once you have completed your Real Wild Bio, send in the summary from Step 5 and a photo or other visual representation of your timeline to learning@dowhatyouloveforlife.com with ‘Real Wild Bio’ in the subject of your email, along with your full name and any online links, and we may feature you!

    *The Real Wild Bio exercise is extracted from the Do What You Love e-course, a transformational online experience which will help you recalibrate and reprioritise to live a life you love. Class begins on April 28. Don’t miss it! Register here.

  5. What do you want more than anything?

    WHAT-DO-YOU-WANT-MORE-THAN-ANYTHING-550PX-LR

    Thank you for joining us for Zen for Ten. After our ten day mini chill, what have you come to realise about yourself?

    And now, what do you want more than anything?

    The courage to start a new career? The tie to pursue passions + hobbies? The freedom to travel + have big adventures? Or simply to “feel differently” about your life, just as it is? All of those wants — and so many others — stem from one big desire.

    “I want to do what I love.”

    And if that’s what you want? Then you’ve arrived in the best possible place you can be.

    If Zen for Ten awoke something in you, then the Do What You Love e-course (starting on April 28) will rock your world.

  6. Zen for Ten {Day 10} CHOOSE TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE

    day 10

    Ponder this

    Doing what you love is a way of life, an attitude, and a state of mind. It’s not about money or fame or selfish pleasure. It’s about sharing your gifts with the world in a way which serves others and makes you happy. And if you are doing what you love, it has a ripple effect on those around you.

    Choosing to do what you love could be the most important decision you ever make.

  7. Zen for Ten {Day 9} BE ALL OF YOU

    day 9

    Ponder this

    In our lives we play many roles – mother, wife, daughter, husband, father, son, friend, confidante, lover, teacher. But none of those alone is who you are.

    You are a unique combination of your genes, background, culture, experiences, environment, influences, memories, dreams, emotions, kindnesses, skills, strengths, attitudes and so many other things. And your unique personality is made up of many parts. It can sometimes seem strange that you love to party but like to be alone, or you are physically adventurous but terrified of talking in public.

    Some stages of our lives (and the people in them) nurture certain aspects of us, and other aspects get buried, forgotten about, hidden. The world needs you to be all of you – and for that you need to know yourself.

    To do what you love you need to do what feels right, do what feels good, and do what feels like YOU.

  8. Zen for Ten {Day 8} TRAVEL LIGHT

    day 8

    Ponder this

    All of us carry around a backpack full of emotional baggage from relationships, mistakes, bad experiences, painful memories. What if you could reflect on the things that have happened to you, but not hold onto them? What if you could move forward with a light step and happy heart? That is what travelling light is all about.

  9. Is this you? (Unveiling our brand new whiteboard animation…)

    When you were young everyone said, “Dream big, you can be anything you want when you grow up.”

    Maybe you believed those words. Maybe you had a dream. But then you got older, and responsibilities got in the way.

    Now you find yourself trapped in a life you don’t love, with jobs to do, and bills to pay, with not enough time to think, let alone dream.

    Is this you? Well it doesn’t have to be this way.

    Watch our short new whiteboard animation and get inspired:

  10. Zen for Ten {Day 7} WALK (BAREFOOT)

     day 7

    Ponder this

    Doing what you love is not a final destination. It is a way of life. And in order to experience a different way of life from the one you have, you will need to make a host of different changes. Exactly what they are will depend on your particular circumstances, and what ‘doing what you love’ means to you. But in every case, it is a journey where every single step counts. And the most important step of all is the first one. You have to BEGIN.

    The truth is you will be vulnerable as you set out to do what you love. You will have fears, both rational and irrational, and not everyone will support you. There will be tough times along the way, but there will also be joy and exhilaration. And you will be living. Every experience of being truly alive happens when you strip back the gloss, bring down the walls and open yourself up to what is happening. In that sense, the road to doing what you love is best walked barefoot, so you can feel every step.
