S. Stop
T. Think
O. Orientate yourself
P. Plan

Do it everyday. Plan for today and you will conquer your goals of tomorrow.

I don’t as a rule like to keep going on about ‘me’ unless it’s relevant … this course is about you.

However, these rules have helped me to develop into the person I am today. I have an awesome passion for life which I desperately want to instill in you. I’ve had a wonderful time and done a lot of things, I’ve packed more into my something odd years than most do into a lifetime.

How many times have I heard: “You lucky so and so, I wish I could do what you do, I wish I could do the things you do.”

Without fail, I would simply answer: “COME ON THEN!”

Three little words that would change a life.

You know by now that I skippered beautiful yachts to beautiful places.

Why did I give up a life of freedom on the seas, why did I no longer wish to take millionaires to millionaire places, why did I give up partying on golden palm lined beaches as the umpteen million pound yacht swung lazily at anchor in jaded waters?

Why did I give up that life? … I didn’t!

Some years ago I decided wasn’t happy, I had to S.T.O.P.

I took a long hard look at where I was, what I was doing, and where I wanted to be. I realised that although, yes, I probably had a life most would wish for … it wasn’t mine!

Something was missing. Everything I did was for someone else. The boats I drove were someone else’s. The hotels were paid for by someone else. The apartments were someone else’s. The beautiful homes were other people’s.


S. I stopped.

T. I thought: ‘This is not my life.’

O. I orientated myself. I’m going to start living my life on my terms. The next time I sail into the Caribbean it will be on my yacht. I will have left my beautiful home, it will be my decision as to what beach we set up the BBQ on, and my choice as to whether we eat lobster or lamb … IT WILL BE MY LIFE!

P. I planned. I planned out my future and in doing so have mapped your future, your success, your life. I made plans that will ensure you get your life.

Your success is my success and the success of all those who join me on their journeys.

Is that what you want?


Those three little words that can change a life!!!
