This is Michael Neill’s website where he shares his latest thinking on successful living. I’m a big advocate of his philosophy that success and happiness comes from ‘the inside out’, rather than from our ‘external’ events and circumstances: we might not be able to control what goes on or happens around us at times, but we always have the choice to have a different conversation with ourselves about how we react and the meanings we attach to them.
