Our perception of life is entirely responsible for how we experience it. 

And as many have heard before, happiness is meant to come from inside, and not from the outer world. Yet with so much confusion inside, and so many opinions out there - knowing what to do is not that simple. We struggle with ideas about careers, parenthood, travel, purpose, missing out, fears, pressures... the list doesn't stop.

You end up feeling like you're being pulled in all directions, with less and less idea of who you really are.

Fortunately for you and I, this human problem has been around for millennia and there is a solution.

Many great sages, philosophers and schools throughout history have brought complete and lasting freedom to those with struggling minds, and dissolved the apparent life-struggle that results. This course represents a fundamental collection of insights and wisdom that has been passed on through the ages, but distilled and translated for our modern problems and modern minds. 

Where has this come from...

Over the years, myself and many others have spent lifetimes chasing tails in search of answers to the very same questions:

  • Whats the point?
  • Do I have a purpose?
  • Isn't this life meant to be enjoyable?
  • How do I stop this non-stop suffering?
  • Is it too late to fix my life?
  • Did I waste it?

And so many more...

The answers cannot come from another complex system of learning new tricks or chasing your tail in the opposite direction. The answers come with some very simple lessons about the reality you are telling yourself is so bad. I can attest personally, that when found out that my perspective was at fault, life instantly became easy and the troubles simply fell away.

Turns out that I was the only problem in my life.

My experience with and transcendence of these problems lead me to become what I now define as a Perspective Coach. I work with people to help them understand exactly what stands between themselves and their happiness; so that it can be simply reclaimed allowing success to grow naturally. Therefore, in this course I present the ancient knowledge that has opened lives and minds throughout history, as it has for myself and countless others. Every day can be a new day, an opportunity: unique and exciting without fear and without hesitation. My only wish is for life to feel like this for you too.

I caution you however: some of this will make you reconsider everything you 'think' you know. 

If you are willing to take the leap, you will find the true perspective in life where you are out of your own way. This knowledge is so simple, you will almost want to reject it for its simplicity. Yet often the obvious things in life are the hardest to realise.

So what do you have to lose?

Perspective Coach

Having spent a great deal of time trying to figure out life, I have finally realised how to simply live it. Many years, traveling and living around the world, studying multiple degrees and courses, I eventually arrived right back at the start and realising my self as the only true source of happiness. 

As a coach, I help people to simply cut the nonsense that keeps them from living the life they want too. In almost every case, that 'nonsense' is coming from ourselves. My message perhaps seems cold on first impressions, and that is simply because the truth can hurt.

My messages simple and techniques simpler; yet they can be the difference between struggle and freedom in any life. If you're ready, it may be your truth too. 

The only question is: will you allow it for yourself?
