Mike Armstrong Poem – How to Navigate the Wall…

#HowToNavigateTheWall #MikeArmstrongPoems

How to Navigate the Wall!

If you can’t get around the wall, don’t get upset and quit,

Stay Strong and in Control.

Work on a way that will fit!


If you can’t get around the Wall, try to get over the Wall,

Don’t let nothing stop you,

not even if you were to fall.


If you can get over the Wall, don’t quit because of your fall,

Just pick yourself up and stand tall.

You will learn to get over the Wall!


When trying to learn how to get over the Wall.

Gain new skills, don’t give up & don’t stall.

Use new skills, don’t give up, try them all!

Be determined to defeat that Wall,


Go under the wall if you can,

Just don’t give up, be a Man!

If that doesn’t work, then don’t be a jerk, drive through that Wall in a Van!

An Entrepreneur Poem – How to make a diamond 💎 by Mike Armstrong…

An Entrepreneur Poem – How to make a Diamond…

#Howtomakeadiamond

Diamonds are shaped in the Earth’s mantle, they take billions of years to form,

They start off as basic carbon, but under pressure they learn to perform,


Alone they would stay as Carbon, but by bonding they crystalise…

They take a transformation right before our very eyes.


So if you want to stay as Carbon, keep pressure far away,

Stay comfortable and relaxed, don’t try changing every day!


But if you want to sparkle, be coveted or desired!

Get busy all day building, work hard until your tired!


When you learn to adapt and change and handle all the pressure!

You’ll learn to bond with others and life will become much better.


So don’t delay but start today and build your pressure fund,

It won’t be long until your strong, a high class, solid diamond 💎

Positive Coronavirus News Roundup

#PositiveCoronavirusNews

Thom Gibbs & Harriet Barber

1 APRIL 2020 • 11:30 AM

The list of beloved cultural institutions this virus has seen off is appalling. Glastonbury, all West End productions, Fast and Furious 9, it’s enough to make you pick up a worthy book for the first time in a decade.

But there’s one hardy entity which is here to save us from pretending we understand Joyce. Give it up for the Eurovision Song Contest. 

Eurovision should be a relic. It’s highly kitsch, frequently gauche and an example of the continent working together in a post-borders spirit of friendship. All things to have fallen severely out of fashion in recent years.

But the show must go on, albeit in an online audience-free format. After postponing the traditional competition two weeks ago its organisers have now announced that there will be a new show airing on the original date for the final, Saturday 16 May.

Europe Shine A Light, bringing to mind one of our nation’s finest moments in the competition…

…will bring together all 41 (forty one! I challenge you to name more than 35 European countries) songs that were entered.

They’ll be performed in remote locations, with no competitive element, and the whole thing is optimistically expected to last around two hours.

Let’s hope the traditional spirit of Eurovision remains. We want curious performance choices, mostly dreadful music but the odd legitimately excellent banger, like this year’s entry from Iceland:

Perhaps something we can do without this time is laggy video communication over long distances. There’s quite enough of that currently in our lives.

Elsewhere, people are heeding the sounds of creaking from their larders and beginning to realise there’s only so much you can stockpile, so rationing is coming to an end in several supermarkets

An app will tell you if you come into contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus. If that sounds like a dystopian future where government tracking of the populance is not only wielded, but actively welcomed by the people, well, welcome to April 2020. 

Perhaps best of all, the current climate has dimmed the powers of one of the year’s most tedious days. It’s gone midday and I’m yet to see a laboured April Fools gag from a corporation.  

Here’s Harriet with the rest of today’s good news.

• NHS Nightingale has officially opened at the Excel centre in East London. The 4,000-bed hospital, which was built with the assistance of the Army, will help reduce pressure on existing services amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

• Social distancing is working. New research by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has estimated that before the lockdown was introduced in the UK one positive person would infect 2.6 other people – now they infect 0.62.

• The public and businesses have donated over £100,000 in just a few hours to a Donate-A-Ride scheme, which offers free trips to and from hospital to London’s frontline NHS workers.

• Japan’s Fujifilm has started clinical trials to test the effectiveness of its anti-flu drug Avigan in treating patients with coronavirus, after reports of promising results in China. Trials in China have suggested Avigan could play a role in shortening the recovery time for patients infected with coronavirus.

• A man with a 3D-printing hobby has created a production line for protective masks.  Sid Lovatt from North Yorkshire has been creating masks and visors after receiving requests from care homes, GP surgeries and his local hospital ward.

• Thailand is giving its public free mobile data for those in isolation to help people work from home and families stay connected.

• Boots UK is going to donate over 200,000 toiletries to vulnerable people and NHS workers to use between busy shifts. The donations will include hand cream, shower gel and toothpaste.

Gratitude – 10 Reasons to be Grateful for those who are currently Self Isolating – #PositiveCornovirusNews

For those who are self isolating and are depressed in down and need a pick me up, try practicing gratitude. Change your perspective on the situation and rather than looking at what you’ve lost from the current change of conditions in our external environment and think about what you have gained in your immediate, local to you external environment (the place where you are currently self isolating) and in your internal environment (“from your skin in” – a recent quote that I have learnt to describe the internal you).

If you can flip the perspective and look at the positive of any situation then you can vastly improve your mental health and increase your ability to handle external forces and situations.

Please find some of my reasons to be grateful in our current situation and other gratitudes that I think this current situation brings to most people who choose to see them and accept them!

No.1 I’m a live and kicking!

Any gratitude list needs this one as it’s the biggest reason to be grateful that you’ll ever have. It was a tiny miracle but somehow you were born and as your reading this your still alive and kicking so well done – keep up the good work. Life is full of Rich experiences so get stuck in and enjoy them!

No. 2. – Grateful For Being Locked In With Our Loved Ones

If you are locked in or self isolated then hopefully you are locked in and managing to spend more time, much more than usual , with the person or people that you love and trust most in the world and when can that be a bad thing?

If you are self isolating alone then you have access to lots of different ways of getting in touch, for Free with all of the special people in your life. See No 3..

No 3. Gratitude towards connected technology.

Getting in touch with friends and family nowadays for nothing (FREE) has never been easier so let’s be thankful for technology. Whether it’s Zoom (which seems all the rage at the moment) or old favourites like Messenger, WhatsApp or FaceTime and Skype or even old classics like the phone or texting (actually utilising your unlimited calls and texts) there is so many ways to get connected and what’s the excuse , look at all the extra time that you now have on your hands – see no 4.

4. Grateful for the obscene of a long commute to work via Rush Hour Traffic?

Having been self employed and mostly working from home for the past 8 years this is a big reason to be grateful for me. Who wants to be sat in traffic and losing 2 hours of their day that you’re never going to get back? See 7.

5. Grateful for the dress code.

I’m in charge of the dress code and can choose to wear what I like. Time to get out all the clothes that I don’t always get a chance to wear and design my own dress policy. plus I can wear loads of things that don’t need ironing and that another chore gone and some more gained time. See 7.

6. Grateful for flexibility!

Now that you are in charge of your own daily routine you can decide the rules. Get up at a time that suits you, work at a time that suits you, exercise at a time that suits you, lunch when you want and finish when you want. You are now the master of your own destiny and your setting the rules, so be flexible and adaptable to a way that suits you and your life and not to someone else’s way that you have been conditioned to confirm to.

7. Gratitude for the extra time.

Now that you’ve lost the daily commute and the ironing etc. you now have the time to exercise at home or do that extra hobby or interest that you could never really make time for. I often find it hard to make time to exercise but have been exercise regularly at home with the new found time saved and the hour given to me for daily exercise by Boris!

8. Personally I’m grateful for Online Zoom networking.

Having to turn up at real world networking something that I done regularly in the old world was time consuming and difficult to achieve too often so I used to go to an event 1 or 2 times a week but now there inline I have been doing 1 or 2 a day, and now I’m connecting with people from much further away than just South Wales.

9. Gratitude for values and appreciation!

I’m starting to realise what’s important in life and becoming a better human being and more appreciative of what we do have and that can’t be a bad thing. Hopefully these sorts of lessons will enrich human being and make them more appreciate of the important things in less and less focussed on the menial / shallow, unimportant, fake and self obsessive sh*t that sometime everyone gets obsessed with.

10. Plenty of time and free resources for learning and self improvement / self development.

There are no excuses, News the time to read a book, listen to an audio book or podcast or watch a load of you tube videos. Learn all the things you have ever wanted to know and all the skills you gave ever needed all at a touch of a button or in a book!

So in summary now is the time to take action and control of your life and your own destination. You (and I) have plefty of reasons to be grateful over the current situation so let take advantage our make it our time now!

“Never, Ever Give Up”

”Always Stay Motivated”

If you ever feel like Giving Up, with whatever it is, or you require some motivation, please feel free to call me.

I’m available on: 07960872549 in the UK (0044) and am always happy to chat!
