Cartoon strip – Knocked down – Get Back Up!

May 8, 2009

Had this in my In Box this morning, thought it was worth sharing with you.

The Most Natural Thing To Do When You Get Knocked Down Is To Get Up How we respond to failure and mistakes is one of the most important decisions we make every day. Failure doesn’t mean that nothing has been accomplished. There is always the opportunity to learn something. What is in you will always be bigger than whatever is around you.

We all experience failure and make mistakes. In fact, successful people always have more failure in their lives than average people do. You will find that throughout history all great people, at some point in their lives have failed. Only those who do not expect anything are never disappointed. Only those who never try, never fail. Anyone who is currently achieving anything in life is simultaneously risking failure. It is always better to fail in doing something than to excel in doing nothing. A flawed diamond is more valuable than a perfect brick. People who have no failures also have no victories.

Everybody gets knocked down, it’s how fast we get up that counts. There is a positive correlation between spiritual maturity and how quickly a person responds to his failures and mistakes. The greater the degree of spiritual maturity, the greater the ability to get back up and go on. The less the spiritual maturity, the longer the individual will continue to hang onto failures. Every person knows someone who, to this day, is still held back by mistakes he made years ago. God never sees any of us as failures; He only sees us as learners.

We have only failed when we do not learn from the experience. The decision is up to us. We can choose to turn a failure into a hitching post, or a guidepost.

Here is the key to being free from the stranglehold of past failures and mistakes: learn the lesson and forget the details. Gain from the experience, but do not roll over and over in your mind the minute details of it. Build on the experience, and get on with your life.

Remember: the call is higher than the fall.

The Power of Visualizing Your Goals

January 6, 2009


I came across this piece by Jill Koenig of

Before any revolution can occur in the outside world, it must first occur inside you. Your No.1 job in visualization is to believe and be ready to receive.

Every physical manifestation begins with a mental creation. Your ability to take your highest goals and continually hold them in your thoughts with passion, excitement and enthusiasm will cause them to become real.

I was looking around for a cartoon on ‘visualizing your goals’. I knew I’d done something some years ago.

This was one of a series I did for my local Business Link magazine years and years ago.


Visualizing won’t work the first time you use it – but if you keep doing it then things start to happen!

Cartoon strip – The College of Hard Knocks!

April 29, 2008


I was filling out an online form the other day and it asked what college/university I had attended. Well as a self-taught cartoonist I hadn’t attended any college after leaving school. So I just entered ‘The College Of Hard Knocks’ Chesterfield UK. They haven’t questioned this as yet!

It reminded me of a cartoon strip I drew a few years ago….
