This is the main excerpt area. Great. This should hopefully pull in some different text at the top now.
Why do I do this?!
Simple, I have a passion for creating ideas and understanding psychology, and have tried to learn as much around those topics as possible whilst traveling around the world and being a design thinking consultant in tandem. I also am quite sick of a lot of the bullshit I see on the internet regarding self-help and people’s mindset brainwashing towards conditioning. I want to help people, to add value, and to let people decide for themselves whether the advice is useful or not. I hope it inspires people to search within themselves to challenge their comfort zones and I hope it will ignite their inner creative side, which is often very suppressed within people. Self-help is often seen as a logical standpoint too – just believe in yourself, and fake positive mantras towards making a positive mindset that can then achieve anything, or some ridiculous step-by-step program promising wealth from your new mindset. We all want to improve ourselves, our chance of survival and to ideally thrive in life, but we are also so incredibly conditioned to fall for schemes and scams on the internet these days, where there’s so much sales patter and fake lives being led in the pursuit of ‘freedom’, but that isn’t what freedom is at all or how to genuinely find it. It is never found by staying in your comfort zone and never through some mindset positive masking training. That is just short-lived adrenaline. Our lives are short and they go with people spending their whole lives focusing on trying to climb a mountain to survival, and missing the actual journey and joys of life around them whilst doing so, and seeing their minds become more and more conditioned to this trap race as I call it. The trap being that they focus so much on trying to climb a ladder to success, either through job traps for comfort or through finding schemes that will set them ‘free’ and heavily in passive income, and they fail to keep their creative side of their brain open the more they become influenced. They get sucked into social media and into trends and bandwagon effects that make them appear current or important but again they just get more sucked into the need for validation to feel important, rather than keeping their minds open to create and deliver some real value in life. Their minds close-up and become heavily conditioned to the bias around them, and the further they go into it the harder they find it to adapt their mind. Adaption is key for the freedom they crave in life but they fall into rabbit traps and don’t know how to adapt or change the more their mind is sold or influenced to an idea. They become followers rather than innovators. Their creativity shuts down through life as they follow sequential routines and patterns in life. This site is about waking people up to be real again, to open up their creativity and to help people overcome the conditioned fears and ingrained bias and to begin to think more openly and innovatively again. It challenges them to take action to open their minds to a fresh and real (rather than fake or follower) way of thinking. As a design thinker by trade for many years, having traveled and lived abroad for 10 years, and having left social media and the trappings of the fake internet world for many years whilst putting myself out of my comfort zone to research and test innovative thinking and creative intelligence without modern social influence, I want to help others to awake their minds and take a fresh look at their lives again, to enjoy their journey through life with creative input in each day, to think about solutions the world needs to solve forward-thinking problems (which will help them develop the freedom to think of solutions to their own personal issues too), and to come together to co-create and add more value to their own lives and others for real, living a richly-led life, and hopefully actually lead people to actively take steps towards making significant changes in their life, not in terms of material gains, not even in terms of material positive thinking masking, but in actual truth self-worth in their lives.

I have a simple vision in wanting to help people make their lives count, and I firmly believe opening and developing our creative, visionary side of our brains (we all have but are often stifled within us) as we challenge our comfort zones can help do that. The site explains the what, why and how’s, and provides useful articles, advice, and tools to help you shape your vision.
