It’s true. No bull …..

by Sunil Bali, 22-05-16

I get sent a lot of quotes……most of which are nauseatingly cliched.

Here are a few, however, that do resonate with me:

  1. Sometimes the only transport available to you is a leap of faith.
  2. There are people so poor that all they have is money.
  3. The key to living well is to eat half as much, walk twice as much, laugh three times as much and love without measure.
  4. Your fortune is in direct proportion to the quality of energy that you express.
  5. Communication is the art of human connection – its the key to personal and professional success.
  6. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.
  7. Love is the bridge between you and everything.
  8. Fate whispers to the warrior “You cannot withstand the storm”, and the warrior whispers back, “I am the storm."
  9. If you are not wealthy, it means that some part of you is still struggling for complete expression.
  10. Life is an echo. What you give you get.



  1. I tried to sign up to a website the other day.
    I entered my password "cheese pie", but it said my password wasn’t stroganoff.
  2. A dyslexic man walks into a bra.
  3. Dyslexics of the world. Untie.
  4. Two cows standing next to each other in a field, Daisy says to Dolly,
    “I was artificially inseminated this morning."
    "I don’t believe you," said Dolly.
    “It’s true, no bull."

Steve Jobs, Peter Kay and heartbrake …..

by Sunil Bali, 15-05-16

Last week the comedian and actor Peter Kay received two BAFTA’s for his glorious TV series Car Share.

Kay also holds the world record for the most successful comedy tour of all time. His 113 date 2010 -11 stand up tour played to over 1.2 million people.

When it finished, Kay said that he had felt sick with nerves each and every one of the 113 nights.

Steve Jobs famously mocked his design team if he ever felt that they were holding back their creativity, for fear of having their work rejected and being criticised.

Jobs said that his vision and making a dent in the universe mattered more to him than his ego being stroked and fitting in.

Jobs had the courage to speak his truth and be himself at all times and at all costs.

Whilst from completely different backgrounds and with completely different roles, Steve Jobs and Peter Kay have a common talent.

They, like many of life’s great achievers, are acutely comfortable in their own skin and don’t go through life with their emotional handbrake on.

Whatever your stage, are you ready to step onto it?



Did you hear about the French chef who killed himself?

He lost his huile d’olive.

They don’t show …..

by Sunil Bali, 01-05-16

His team were losing 3-0 at half-time in the 2005 final of the world’s most prestigious club football competition, The Champions League.

His final words to his Liverpool team as they ran out for the second half were, “The record books don’t show the score at half-time.”

Liverpool roared back with three goals in six minutes to turn the game on its head, and went on to beat AC Milan on penalties. And manager Rafa Benitez booked his place in history.

The route to success lies in two words, persistence and resistance.

Persist in what must be done, and resist what doesn’t need to be done.

As someone once said, “The road to failure is actually the path of least persistence.”



An Englishman an Irishman and a Scotsman were in a pub, talking about their sons.

My son was born on St George’s Day," commented the English man. "So we decided to call him George"

“That’s a real coincidence," remarked the Scot. “My son was born on St Andrew’s Day, so we decided to call him Andrew.”

"That’s incredible, what a coincidence, “said the Irishman. “Exactly the same thing happened with my son Pancake.”
