Will you change? by Bernardo Moya

For many of us happiness isn’t something we think about as we begin each day. It’s usually the case that events dictate our mood as we start each morning.

A little more empathy please by Bernardo Moya

The feeling I get is that we are all slowly becoming more insular, more self-absorbed and massively less empathetic to a degree that we seem not to care. Media coverage has made us quite impermeable, and we are ‘used to’ seeing people suffering with natural disasters, starvation, immigration and vulnerable people living on the streets. […]

The advantages of Evolution by Bernardo Moya

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation=”right-to-left”]In an article of the Harvard Business Review of Larry E.

Can you see the other side?

Are you too self-centered? Are you a ‘me-me’? We go through our day-to-day lives doing what we do, thinking what we think is right, or we focus on our thoughts and deeds. In neuro-linguistic programming it’s defined by the phrase, ‘the map is not the territory’ – in other words the way that we see […]

Are you too comfortable? by Bernardo Moya

We all prefer to live within our comfort zones, in every aspect of our lives. You will find that behind every comfort zone there are strong limiting beliefs that are restrictions about your abilities, which you are convinced are true. These limiting beliefs tend to keep you ‘safe’ with what your unconscious feels is appropriate […]

Making the decisions by Bernardo Moya

Making the decisions Life is passing us by, seemingly ever quicker, and this month my question is, ‘What kind of decisions are you making?’ Sometimes making the ‘right’ decision can easily lead us to paralysis.

The $1 million question: Why? by Bernardo Moya

I recently read Simon Sinek’s book, Start With Why. It’s a brilliant book aimed at business, but it has really made me think about myself, and my company, on a deeper level.

Better safe than sorry by Bernardo Moya

  For the past 11 years, the month of November has been christened with a new name – Movember. What started out as a humble gathering of 30 moustachioed men has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, and we at The Best You are unashamedly jumping on the bandwagon. Movember is a fantastic cause, one that […]

Feeling let down? by Bernardo Moya

  What does being let down really mean? It has many connotations, but the dictionary defines it as: 1. To make someone disappointed by not doing something that they are expecting you to do 2. To work less hard or make more mistakes than the people who you are working with This month I want […]

Let’s compliment a bit more by Bernardo Moya

  Living in a big, and at times stressful, city like London can make us less receptive to communicating and engaging with others. Add modern technology into the mix, and it’s a wonder we still communicate face to face at all. Recently I’ve been thinking: Do we compliment each other enough? I don’t think we […]

Are you living? by Bernardo Moya

  William Wallace said, “Every man dies, not every man really lives.” So my question to you this month is are you living? Or are you letting time pass by? We are all very different, in so many ways.   Some people focus on working and saving their money for a rainy day. Others focus […]

In the Summertime by Bernardo Moya

    Hallelujah, it’s finally arrived! Despite the fact that we didn’t have a very harsh winter this year, there is nothing quite like the joy that comes when spring turns to summer. It’s the time of the year when we can finally get outdoors and enjoy the sun, when it bothers coming to the […]

Get the help you need by Bernardo Moya

  In the immortal words of The Beatles, everybody occasionally “needs a little help from their friends.” The average person has 130 Facebook friends, but with all types of relationships – from romantic to platonic – migrating online, people are feeling more and more disconnected and alone. Whether it’s shopping, going to the movies, gaming, […]

Gifts really do keep on giving by Bernardo Moya

    What is it that makes gifts so special? First, think less of the gift itself and more the act of giving. Being generous makes both the donor and the receiver feel good – and that buzz encourages both to do more of the same with other people.   It shouldn’t be surprising that […]

Don’t be an education Dinosaur by Bernardo Moya

  Einstein didn’t excel as a student. Far from it. Teachers thought he was lazy, and he failed the non-science subjects he was taught. He was fortunate to have a spark for science ignited by an uncle who recognised and responded to young Albert’s curiosity. I’ve seen variations on that story time and time again […]

Time For A New Approach To Education? by Bernardo Moya

  If you do a bit of research, you’ll find the education system was designed to create obedient soldiers to do the bidding of their commanders. That was the specific reason for the creation of kindergarten in the 19Th century. It’s the 21St century, and we’re living with the consequences of that legacy. Schooling designed to create […]

Do people support you by Bernardo Moya

Life is Sweeter, with Less Sugar by Bernardo Moya

  There are things we take for granted, assuming somehow they’ve always been that way. Adding sugar to your coffee, tea, or breakfast cereal is one of them. At home, there’s a bowl of sugar. Out and about, sachets of it are found at every café. Actually, adding sugar to our diet has only been […]

Mind the avalanche by Bernardo Moya

  I came across a report by Institute for Public Policy Research that was brought to my attention by a friend, Ami Shapiro.  In the report they state: ‘Our belief is that deep, radical and urgent transformation is required in higher education as much as it is in school systems. Our fear is that, perhaps […]

Work at your worth by Bernardo Moya

  We all know the old saying that begins “give a man a fish…” that basically tells us that it’s not enough to do something good for someone. You’ve also got to think about exactly what it is you’re doing. The saying argues against short-termism and taking a view on the long-term outcome for the […]

Prevention is better than cure by Bernardo Moya

  The statistics are extraordinary. In the UK nearly one in five adults experience anxiety or depression, according to a recent survey by the Office of National Statistics. And of course, on the back of that, there’s also a rise in the level of prescribed drugs to treat it. But I wonder, is prescription the […]
