The very first WAKE UP AND LIVE event will soon take place.

Wake up and live 25


Wake up and Live

Discover your True Potential to Achieve.

Do you want to be more successful?

Do you want a more enjoyable and rewarding life?

At his monthly WAKE UP AND LIVE events, Tony Brassington, through his business Mind and Achievement, will challenge you to shake up your thinking and encourage you to think differently about your potential to achieve the things you want in life than you ever did before. He will bring you to the realisation of your true potential and inspire you to set your mind to reach any achievement of your choosing over time.

Thought The life that we each live is a reflection of our thoughts. Thoughts are a creative force, but by holding tightly to thoughts and beliefs that are limiting, then life cannot exceed those limits. Is it time to shake up your thinking?

Potential to achieve Without a clear understanding of the true potential every human being has, how can you achieve your full potential?

Tony Brassington is an expert in the field of setting the mind for achievement. He is a successful author of several books, and an active public speaker and coach. Tony has also worked with a number of leading experts in the personal development industry.

As a bonus

There will also be a guest speaker at each event, speaking on a complementary topic.

Want to run workshops or seminars, but don’t know where to Start? The next step

Mind and Achievement Next Step cover 3D-3D

I have written another book and I have another workshop to offer. (Please note I only present this workshop once or twice a year.) The workshop is called ‘The Next Step Workshop’. Why did I write a book about filling workshops and seminars? I wrote this book because I saw a real need for a book like this. I believe too many of the books on this subject rush ahead too quickly, and skip over the most important parts of the process. Also, many people over the years have been asking me, “How do I run events like you do?” I’ve also observed far too many people missing the first, and ultimately, the most important steps of the journey. How can you hope to fill your events if you have not thoroughly identified your audience’s needs? And equally important, is to take the time to thoroughly identify your specialist skills and knowledge, in order to fulfil those needs.

When I put together my first ‘Next Step Workshop’, I thought about the time when I first started in this business, and the many people I have seen try to break into this industry since. Although there are many comprehensive books and seminars, all trying to sell the fairy-tale of becoming a great speaker and filling events with ease, most of the people I have seen taking this route usually do not get very far, even after reading a number of the big books on the subject or attending expensive training days. In the true spirit of my Mind and Achievement business, I am about achieving lasting results. I let others sell the fairy tale…. I deal in results!

The NEXT STEP workshop


Mind and Achievement banner 2

Last night, my NEXT STEP WORKSHOP had its first audience. The NEXT STEP is aimed at people who want to be professional speakers or run workshops, but can’t find their way forward toward realising that dream. I started off the presentation with my classic Parallel lines intro, from my Mind and Achievement course, which always goes down well and gets people thinking right from the start. All in all, it was a good event, with more to come soon.

Do you really want to achieve it?

Do you really want to succeed?

Do you really want to attract the best that life can offer?

Tony Brassington Mind and Achievement

Be honest with yourself. Are you ready for the task ahead, the task of achieving all your dreams and goals?

So many dive in, ill-prepared and meet with disappointment. Ultimately, they give up disheartened, never to try again.

Many people keep doing the same things over and over again in life, which leads to the same disappointing results as before. New Year’s Resolutions are an excellent example of this.

We are now in the second quarter of 2014. If you’re are like the average person, then your New Year’s Resolutions will have fallen by the wayside by now.

Below is an extract from my free report FROM MIND – TO ACHIEVEMENT which explains the real reason why so many fail to achieve their New Year’s Resolutions.

From mind to achievement 2

The real reason that most NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS fail.

There must be some people that successfully achieve their New Year’s resolutions each year, but famously the vast majority do not. New Year’s resolutions are as easy as running a long way up a steep hill, rowing upstream in a fast moving river, or holding the tide back. Why are they so hard to achieve? Every year we are given a wide variety of good reasons as to why so many people fail to achieve their New Year’s resolutions; many of these reasons are very valid too, but the REAL reason that will always make New Year’s resolutions hard work, is never mentioned at all.

We humans share our existence and experience of this planet with all the other forms of life on Earth. Now there are natural laws of nature that keep things in check, and we are as answerable to these laws as any other form of life on Earth.

Think of the four seasons –

They are always in that order, even if the spring starts in different months in some parts of the world.

First comes spring – a time of new growth and expansion.

Then summer – everything is in the full swing of life.

Autumn – it all starts to slow down and die back, as it becomes time to prepare for the winter that will surely come.

Winter – a resting period. For example a tree is resting; it’s not producing leaves or growing new roots or branches, as it waits for spring to bring forth new life again. An evergreen tree may be green in winter, but it is also at rest. Even the soil is at rest. The soil is waiting for spring to bring forth new life again. Many animals hibernate in the winter. Birds fly to warmer climates to return in the spring.

When do we set New Year’s resolutions? – WINTER! In the UK that’s a few days after the winter solstice, the shortest day in the year.

What do we want, in essence, from a New Year’s resolution? We want something NEW. We want GROWTH, a new ideal personal weight, a new goal achieved, a new ideal to live by, to give up smoking and have clean new air to breath. When do new things come in nature – SPRING TIME!

New Year’s resolutions are very hard to achieve, to the point of being almost impossible, because we are fighting against nature. Because we live amongst so much concrete, steel and tarmac we have lost sight of the seasons and our place within them. The Native American Indian believed that February and March were the worst months for energy. They called these months, THE WEAK MONTHS; yet, that is just when we are supposed to be going the extra mile with our New Year’s resolutions.

We must understand the natural laws of success if we are going to achieve what we set our minds on, and then we can achieve it with ease.

So the very best New Year’s resolution you can possibly set is –

From mind to achievement 2

Contained within those few paragraphs above is a big lesson for those who will accept it. The real point which I am making is not one about how to achieve your New Year’s Resolutions, rather –


Assuming you do want to get the best from life, then you must learn the rules of the game thoroughly before you start. New Year’s Resolutions are just one example of just how out of touch we have become with nature, as well as with the spiritual and universal laws which govern all things.

Do you really want to achieve it? Do you really want to attract the best that life can offer? Can you set your mind for achievement and reach it over time?

I can help you to find the missing parts of the puzzle, which may well have eluded you for some time and these missing pieces probably have been holding you back for a long time. I can show you a wide variety of tools, techniques and thought processes, all aimed at setting your mind for achievement.

In short, I can show you how to set your mind for achievement and reach it over time. When you thoroughly know the rules of the game, then you will feel as if you have won before you even start. Think what that is worth to you.

Tony Brassington I wish you

Is the glass half full or half empty?

Is the glass half full or half empty?…………..The real thing to realise is, that it is your glass, if you drink it dry and wait, expecting someone else to fill it for you and with something that you like; then you may be in for a long wait. At any time you can choose to refill your glass and with anything that you could possibly want to have in it. So the real question is – is it time for me to fill my glass?


Your mind is like a garden.


Your mind is like a garden,

Your thoughts are the seeds,

You can grow flowers,

Or you can grow weeds.

The Caged bird

The caged bird is a wonder to see and to hear. So wonderful it is to get up so close and to see first-hand its natural beauty; beauty that it would normally keep far from our sight, if it were in its natural and free environment. Also it is good thing for a person to care for a little creature and keep it in good health.

The caged bird is happy or at least appears to be. Water, food, warmth, it wants for nothing, no need to hunt or to gather; a life of apparent ease.

We all sometimes think about the caged bird, despite its every need been taken care of, surly the bird would want to be free if it had a choice. Birds are meant to soar and fly; the warmth of the sun, the birdsong of other birds must be so inviting. Some may even have become aware of the cage door and given some thought to escaping.

Are we in some ways very much like the caged bird? Mankind was made also to soar and the fly, yet in our own way. We were not meant to be caged, restricted and held back. We were not meant to only eat, drink, sleep and keep warm, but to actively engage with life. We were put on this earth to grow and expand in a vast variety of ways, skills, knowledge, character, experiences and to ever improve at helping and interacting with others for the greater good of all.

We are not caged birds; no one keeps our cage door closed other than ourselves. We are meant to soar and fly; so are you a caged bird?

Tony Brassington.
