A real life-transforming habit

Reading is life-transforming and can help us achieve our full potential and lead a richer life. Reading can transform your life because the more you read, the more you know. The more you read, the more you can imagine. The more you read, the better you understand other people and this can help enhance your relationships and consequently improve your life. When the message of a book is rightly phrased, it could pass your defences, enter your heart and explode silently and effectively within your mind and change you from the inside out. The Bible is generally accepted by Christians as God’s word to humankind. That being the case, one could say God chose to communicate his thoughts to humanity through a book. Millions are known to have been greatly inspired and transformed by it. A reader today; a leader tomorrow. ( W. Fusselman) I suggest that the only books that influence us are those for which we are ready and which have gone a little further down our particular path than we have gone

Life in your 50s – how to deal with it!

Trauma - and how mature adults deal with it By  Seth Emmanuel Experiences and perspectives on life - love and marriage, divorce, politics, cancer, and other incredibly fascinating topics. Have you ever wondered why the younger generations make so many mistakes in life? The logical conclusion is that they haven’t gained the wisdom and experiences of more mature adults. When we reach middle-age we have the benefit of hindsight, acquired patience and thoughtfulness. We make decisions and approach life’s traumas in a non-emotional, considered way and we are all too well aware of the consequences of bad decisions. We are too seasoned to repeat the mistakes of youth. Wrong! Regardless of age, it seems we approach traumas in the same irrational and emotional state of our youth. The author also offers insights to those “in the middle” on how to deal with the traumas of life.

Me and My Shadow "An immensely gripping read"

A review by Fiona Burkinshaw ( Personal Trainer and fitness coach) "There are many words to describe how I feel after reading Me and My Shadow, intrigued, shocked, emotional, inspired, but most of all proud. I am proud that I know Ray, and honoured that he turns up week in week out to my fitness classes. For the advice, his knowledge, and the time he has given me over the past few years. His enthusiasm to his sport is mind blowing, and whatever Ray puts his mind to, he achieves it with flying colours. From being this cocky ginger haired, Yorkshire lad who just wanted to “have a go at boxing”, to his recent 100km Sahara Desert race, Ray has, and always gives 110%. He is an absolute credit to anyone who knows him. This book gives a great insight into the “down to earth” Ray (we thought we knew)! Some of the stories are very funny, as well as inspirational. An immensely gripping read, a must buy. Thanks for everything Ray." Paperback | Waterstones | Amazon UK Ebook

"An incredible story of a desert runner" - Me and my Shadow by Ray Matthews

A review by Patrick De Jong ( Desert runner and Friend) " Throughout a lifetime, everyone has the opportunity to meet truly exceptional people. I have. But only very few times have I met someone who inspires, the way Ray does. He turns concepts around, demonstrating the relativity of the “biological clock” and what can and cannot be achieved by having the right mindset. Who decides what the right age is to achieve your dreams. How many times does society impose the things we should or should not do, and what is seen as “reasonable”, and what is expected of us. There is timing for everything. Ray demonstrates that destiny is in your hands, and not in the hands of what society expects of us. Even today, practicing for sport, or in my work, or family environment, I still think back to the phrases, or moments I was able to share with this incredible man, and friend. Ray truly is, an inspirational story himself. " Paperback | Waterstones | Amazon UK Ebook | K
