Truth Ache …..

by Sunil Bali, 29-08-16

One of the fundamentals of Zen is that "All things exist to express what they are."

So your soul’s deepest desire is to experience life authentically as who you really are.

If you don’t live your truth and do what makes you happy, then you get truth ache.

This ache is a sign that you need to do more of what you love.

If you continue to repress who you truly are, then truth decay sets in which disrupts both your physical and emotional well-being.

The most important thing I learned as a psychotherapist, is that attaining happiness and fulfillment isn’t so much about getting better, as it is about letting go of everything that isn’t you.

If you celebrate your uniqueness, the world will too, because subconsciously it wants the same freedom.

Don’t sacrifice your sense of adventure on the altar of self-preservation because there’s a fine line between self-preservation and embalming.

Remember and rediscover who you were, before the world started to tell you what you were not.



I get sent a lot of jokes which whilst very funny, are too blue too publish.

I will however share this photo of a couple of topless strippers,

My doctor was quite a large man. He looked like the only thing he’d ever cured was pork.

I met an estate agent who didn’t know the abbreviation for ‘apartment’. I thought, "that’s apt".

My dad suggested that I register for a donor card. He’s a man after my own heart.


Live big & love deep.


The Truth …..

by Sunil Bali, 21-08-16

There has been a lot of nonsense spoken in the last two weeks about athletes being in the zone at the Olympics.

The truth is that we’re born in the zone.

Whether it was learning to walk or talk, you practiced tirelessly and didn’t get bogged down in failures for one simple reason: you didn’t think about them.

We get out the zone because we think too much.

The widely recognized formula for high performance is:

Performance = capacity – interference

And the primary source of interference is our own thinking.

Unconscious competence and performing to our full capacity requires an empty mind.

Think less, do more.

Do you mind …..

by Sunil Bali, 31-07-16

Leading performance psychologist and Chairman of the Human Performance Institute Dr. Jim Loehr said, "Your mindset puts a lid on what you can achieve, because your body hears everything your mind says and acts accordingly."

If you go to a restaurant you wouldn’t order your least favorite dish would you?

Yet when it comes to our thinking, we humans have a habit of choosing the most unsavory thought patterns that don’t support what we want to achieve.

If beating ourselves up worked, we would all have a six-pack, a fat wallet and a permanent grin.

When we align our thinking to our vision, move our mental cursor to what we want, and stay on the right page, the universe has a habit of falling into line and producing copious quantities of synchronicity, serendipity and success.

Thoughts can be like X-rays, choose the right ones and they’ll go through anything.


  1. I put an accumulator bet on 3 horses yesterday, Sunshine, Moonlight and Goodtimes, I didn’t win, I blame it on the bookie.
  2. I can hear music coming out of my printer.
    I think the papers jammin’ again.
  3. I was discussing death with my grandad last night.
    He said that when the time comes he wants to be cremated.
    Grandad then tells me I have the last 2 family plots in the cemetery.
    I have grave reservations.
  4. My wife crashed the car while listening to Adele in the radio.
    She was rolling in the jeep.

I’m away for a couple of weeks. Back on 14th August.

Until then …..


Live big & love deep.
