Your Force Field is comprised
of 4 key areas...


Wisdom is the scaffolding around which our Force Field is constructed. Education is where it all begins – irrespective of the setting – because it encourages right thinking and dictates our initial trajectory. 


We cannot plant good seeds in nutrient deficient soil and expect a positive outcome, nor can a great structure be erected on unsteady ground. There’s a good reason why a soil test is the mandatory first step taken by building contractors prior to digging foundations as it provides unequivocal feedback on the ‘lay of the land’. Without this education, the builder can tackle his new project with all the zeal he can muster, but still create something which is structurally unsound. 


Acquiring knowledge as a lifelong avocation can be expensive, but it’s nothing compared to the cost of ignorance.


The time spent assembling our philosophical priorities can be nullified if we enact our newfound wisdom with blunt instruments. The sharpened edge cuts more cleanly and effortlessly than the dull blade, and you can’t take down a tree with a hammer! 


In Weapons, we aim to refine a skill set that is supplementary to our evolved mindset. In some instances, these tools provide a protective barrier against the array of incoming ordnances we experience when venturing outside our comfort zone. At other times, our honed weaponry is activated combatively as we thrust and pierce our way forward towards our desired goals. Inevitably, we must tool up to move up!


It is a fact of life that poor attitudes, negative people or self-defeating behaviours are never far from our immediate experience, which makes identifying their arrival and dismantling their influence an essential part of any success strategy.


‘Warnings’ highlights some of the more common enemies of progress. It not only focuses on outside forces that can wreak havoc in our personal or professional lives but also includes internal affairs, where thought or emotional weaknesses can hinder us just as severely.


‘Ways’ reflects the application of our collective principles, philosophies and skills. It highlights the truism that we are not what we know or what other people think we are… we are in fact what we practise! ‘Ways’ also aims to seek a balance between inner peace and outer force. The siren call of let’s get it on represents this outer force and urges us to mix it up with life’s fears and advance on our enemies – both real and imaginary. At other times, our equivalent desire for inner peace reminds us that thoughtful acceptance, patience and non-resistance can also be the most effective strategy at times.
