1. Please tell me a bit about yourself?
I am the proud father of three great children who are all turning into super adults, in my leisure time I love to Golf, to travel and to practice Yoga.
2. What inspired you to start Knowledge is King?
21 years ago I went through a divorce and a challenging time in my life where I was looking for answers to a lot of personal questions, I found the answers mainly through DR Wayne Dyer who became a mentor to me through his books and CD’s, he still inspires me. So within a year of studying Wayne Dyers material I discovered Think And Grow Rich and again devoured it, listening to it every day, it inspired me to form Knowledge is King.
3. Can you summarize your view on the importance of mindset?
I truly believe that having a good mind set is the key to success in anything you do in life.
4. What is #success to you?
One of my favourite quotes is
“There is only one success – to be able to spend your life in your own way.”
by Christopher Morley…..I live by this most days .
5. What is your favourite self development book?
If I had a favourite Self Help Book it would be The Slight Edge By Jeff Olson as this kind of covers all aspects of life.
6. How has reading self development books changed your life?
I get excited by the possibility of a new book every time, knowing that if I only get one thing from it then it will be worth it, over the years and hundreds of good books I have become a much better person, books have changed my life multiple times and still continue to.
7. How long did it take you to compile the life changing quotes book?
I had collected quotes in all formats for nearly 14 years before deciding to compile “Life Changing Quotes” it only took a few months to put it into book format.
8. If you could go back and give yourself one piece of mindset advice what would it be and when?
If I could go back to leaving school I would have told myself the
“ If You Think You Can You Can”
this would have made a difference then, and also to
“ surround myself with positive people.”
9. What is your favourite quote?
One of my favourite quotes is
“The First Two Rules Of Personal Growth….
1. It will be difficult…….
2. It will be worth it…..”
10. If someone wanted to start their own self development journey what book would you recommend first?
For somebody just starting their self-development journey it would be to study [ not just read] Think And Grow Rich…..it’s all in there.
