The Secret to Olympic Glory Revealed

One of my pet peeves is when people claim that a person’s success is due to luck. “Oh he’s lucky because __________”. My response is usually “chaaaaaab” [Bahraini slang for shut up] I heard someone mention how lucky an Olympic athlete was because he had a Gold medal! Lucky?! Come on! Of course some success, […]

Introducing Euromaus!

Why I Love Germany

Some people think I’m weird. They ask me “Suhail, why Germany?”. Even some Germans ask me that questions. Most GCC Arabs like to go to the South of France or Spain. Or even London, where they understand the language, but few people go to Germany. When they ask me where I stay in Germany I […]

Me in a German Circus!

Here’s some news from Germany. The other day my wife, my mother, my cousin Anna and I, took Selma and Laith to a circus. Zirkus Bromach was the name I think.

I was reading through a copy of Gulf Weekly when I came across an article about a group of young entrepreneurs who’ve started a DVD delivery service. Checkout I love it! The concept sounds great and I just signed up. I have no idea if it will work or if they will last (remember […]

I'm in Love – Don't Tell My Wife!

Okay, just kidding! Let me get right to the point before nasty rumours start spreading. I’m delighted to announce that we’re pregnant! Technically, only she’s pregnant, but I say “we” to be a supportive husband 🙂 And I’m already falling in love with the new baby. My wife and I took the kids to see […]

Some Surprising NLP Secrets

I’m a member of an organisation called EO (Entrepreneur Organisation), formerly known as YEO (Young Entrepreneur Organisation) – I guess it’s not called that anymore because a lot of the young entrepreneurs are getting older. Like many ideas, the name sounded good at the time 🙂 Anyway, every year we have a “Big Bang” event. […]

But I do think formal education is overrated – way overrated. I’m a fanatic student of human development and success, and one of the things I’ve discovered […]
