How to Be Amazing is where ordinary people train to be heroes in their daily lives. It’s inspirational and motivational, but also educational - I teach you the Missing Curriculum, the things you never learned at school.
Things like how to be happy, how to be healthy, and how to succeed – where “success” means connecting positively to the people around you and achieving something in your life that’s meaningful to you.
(If the most meaningful thing to you is making a big steaming pile of money, then a) that’s sad, b) there are plenty of websites that will teach you about that, and c) this isn’t one of them.)
The big ideas
How to Be Amazing is about practice, not theory. And I hate jargon with a passion.
But there are a few basic ideas that everything else on the site is founded on, and rather than leave you to figure them out, I’m laying them out here.
Being a Hero
Being amazing is about being a hero. And being a hero is about wholeheartedness and clearsightedness and courage and hard work and perseverance and the ability to connect to other people (because connection is power). That’s how to be a hero.
Health is Personal Development
Looking after, and taking charge of, your own health isn’t just a smart investment for the future. It gives you more energy and freedom now. Plus, you feel great, and it’s a foundation to build more amazingness on. Health is personal development.
Challenge is Growth
You can wait for challenges, or you can go out and get your own. If you get your own, you’ll not only be amazing, you’ll also be better placed for challenges that happen along in the future. So seize challenges.
Work on the Work
When you think about being amazing, you naturally think about the product, the end goal. But the secret of achieving that goal is in how you pay attention to the process, or, as I like to say, work on the work.
