Who am I?
I'm Chris Brock. I’m an award-winning photographer and writer. I’m also a qualified journalist, published author, an accredited life coach, and I’ve been a van driver, a carer for the disabled, an emergency telephone operator, a charity fundraiser and a magazine editor. I’ve been a market trader, a designer, a marathon runner, a public speaker, a videographer, a podcaster and a warehouse operative. I spent two days selling mortgages.
I’ve done lots of things, been to lots of places and I’ve learned a lot, and I've come to the conclusion that we can do whatever want – as long as it's built on a foundation of kindness and loving awareness.
I’m not a psychologist, I’m not a doctor, I’m not an academic. I’ve struggled with anxiety, low self-esteem, lack of confidence and depression throughout my life as I tried to figure out what it’s all about. For years I thought I was lacking something, but now I realise that we have all the answers we need to master the art of living, but we're looking in the wrong places with the wrong questions.
These days I am busy enjoying what life has to offer, and doing the things that interest me – as well as working with some of the World’s biggest organisations, such as Microsoft, Singapore Airlines and Ford. On my blog I write about generally positive things that I hope will help you find the same joy and contentment in life that I found once I began looking in the right places – with open eyes.
I’ve lived in New York and in London, but today I’m somewhere in the countryside halfway between the city and the sea. I like it here.
