I am just a genuine guy from sunny Scotland | Welcome to a new friend: The BEST You Project

Creating a better you through lessons learned and Shared

I am just a genuine guy from sunny Scotland who is sharing some valuable lessons he’s learned in life. Feel free to take it or leave it. I’ve found over the year that a lot of people out there need a little help or a little guidance and all I am doing is trying to reach as many people as I can to help them improve how they view their own life and the world around them. I try to share useful tips and techniques that I’ve used myself and hope that many people use these to make the most of their lives.

Everyone has their troubles and challenges in life, some more than others. A lot of the time though people dwell on their problems and negativity rather than appreciating all the good things they have and having a positive outlook. Most of my blogs are just basic tips on how to appreciate what you have, to make happier about yourself and how to set yourself up for success.

Watch Me!

August 29, 2013

When someone says you can’t achieve something, that there is something that you’ll never manage to do … there are only two words you need to say back … “Watch Me!”.


I left school at the age of 16 with no higher qualifications and by the age of 19 I was in an extremely mundane dead-end job listening to all those people who said I couldn’t do something special with my life. Listening to all those people who made out I was stupid just because they had no ambition themselves.

Then one day I decided to prove them wrong, I decided to prove to myself and to the world that I was capable of much more. I handed in my notice and decided if I wanted to make something of myself I would have to go back to college.

Every time I told friends or family I was doing it the message back was resounding “what’s the point in that”, “what a waste of time” and “you’ll never get a degree”. It was deafening … but it didn’t stop me.

Sure a few people said well done and a few believed I could achieve great things and that was supportive, my mum being one of them but the overall consensus was “you’re wasting your time”.

But I kept going and day by day, month by month my self-belief grew. My confidence in my own abilities soared … and 4 years later I proved all the doubters wrong standing proudly with my degree and a world of self-made opportunities at my door.


15 years on from the day I announced I was quitting my job I am now a business executive living in a home I only once dreamed of having with 2 beautiful kids and an amazing wife.

Moral of the story – believe in yourself or nobody else can. Don’t listen to doubters and go out there and make things happen.

This is your life, don’t let others fears and judgements hold you back … you have the key and power to do whatever you choose so make your choices wisely and make them happen.

Show the world what you’re made of!

The BEST You Project – 5 Week Summer Challenge

July 5, 2013

If you are unhappy with your weight, size or even attitude then please feel free to take part in The BEST You Project’s 5 Week Summer Challenge. Open the attached file and join in the challenge.Best_You_Project_-_5Wk_Challenge

After having developed what can only be described as the start of a beer gut I decided to kick The BEST You Project into full swing with an opening 5 Week Summer Challenge which will focus on getting fit, eating healthy and staying motivated.

I have already roped in a crowd of friends from work to take part in the challenge with me (making it public makes it easier to stick to). The challenge is to start making the Best You possible by working each day towards reaching the weight you want to be, the size you want to be, and feeling happy and confident with a spring in your step.

The core message here is taking small, simple steps to slowly make the dream become reality. One day at a time, you don’t have to run a marathon on your first run. Do what you can each day and build it up day by day.

Your food intake can be slowly reduced, your exercise gradually increased, and your positivity and focus enhanced one day at a time. View the challenge in a positive manner and I firmly believe that anything is possible. It wont happen over night but as long as you celebrate your daily successes and all progress you make you will continue to be motivated to continue.
