Perhaps you’re already in the Tower you seek.

 

                                       A scene from The Legend of Vysallimore.

Perhaps you’re gazing at a place, a Tower, where you feel that life would be better. But perhaps you’re already in the Tower that offers you the most. Don’t always look over the fence at potentially greener grass.  The grass beneath your feet may be the lushest, greenest and most rewarding. And it’s there for you now. This Christmas, please count your Bessings.

Promises. Promises.

The illustration is from the chapter in The Legend of Vysallimore called: The Promise.

It represents a son’s promise to his father.

A promise is spoken trust, respect and personal character. Breaking a promise is an act of self destruction. As we move towards a New Year and New Year’s Resolutions, what promises will you be making and promising to keep?

The final page of The Legend of Vysallimore.

On the final page, you will find this verse: “The Red tower is still standing. But where the old Inn stood, There’s now a Holy Chapel, Whose name means triple good.”

That Holy Chapel does really exist. There’s a picture of it here. Triple good refers to its full name. The chapel is now called “The Chapel of the Thrice Blessed Virgin Mary.” Pope John Paul the Second has visited this sacred place.

Diamond Anniversary! Just done my 75th Brandhunger Day.

I feel it’s very important, and business critical, that companies put social responsibility at the heart of their mass communications.
It’s what I teach in my Brandhunger Days. Really good to see the strong financial results that are achieved after these sessions.

Message to parents. Please send this Dove Real Beauty short film to your daughters this Thanksgiving week.

I’ve been with a team that has made many great and famous Dove Real Beauty films. This one is my favorite. Dove Amy. You can find it on Youtube too. It always brings tears.
Over 50% of teen girls who stay at home to be on their computer are in fact hiding. Hiding because their body image and self confidence is low.
Please, this week, tell them are beautiful. Please send them Dove Amy.
