"Once upon a time I could not say I was happy. In fact, for most of my life I've wasted the opportunities I had to really enjoy my life, and all the incredible richness it held.
"Now, I love my work, my marriage is happy and my extended family are all happy, healthy and successful. I have wonderful friends and incredible clients.
"I'm still working towards new goals. I've found that, just like most other people, I am happiest when I am making progress towards my goals.
"The unhappiest people are those who have given up, are disappointed, who feel rudderless or overwhelmed by some part of their life.
"There is absolutely nothing I love more than helping people who can't see the way forward to create a bright and compelling future. And then live it from the 'now'.
"So if you are feeling a little lost in some area or your life - call me.
"If all you do is take that first step, I promise you will get a result from even that one meeting.
"Call me today."
