Man Gets Eaten by Dog just before he conquers the Solar System

My great mentor recently said to me “If I put you in a room with a vicious dog, the dog will eventually emerge from the room….and you won’t. Because alone we are weak”.

This really impacted me, as I reflected on how vulnerable we are in an ‘alone moment’. He continued in his counselling of me and said “yet we can take that very same man, and place him in a community of people who have decided to conquer the solar system”

This community, we call NASA. Together they hatch a plan, and as part of the journey they are about to embark on, they know there will be failures. Rockets may blow up, structures may fail, so they plan for the disaster, because they know its not all going to be ‘good’, ‘good’, ‘good’. He kept talking, “this group of people have conquered the solar system”. How did they do that he explained? Because together we are powerful but alone, we are weak.

Now I have to tell you that I thought LONG AND HARD before deciding to put up this video, as a weekly video. So, let me explain why I made the decision. As a coach and mentor to thousands over the years, I have come across a mass of people who have wandered into their futures, broke. They are broke because they took on the responsibilities alone, just like the man in the room with the dog.

However, in my years of coaching, I have come across a group who wandered into their futures, with enough money to live inspired, to travel when they want to, to eat when and where they chose, and to enjoy the catalogue of possibilities that the universe offers. I want you to come into that moment with me in this present time. Just allow your mind to wander with me as I bring you into the future, here we go…

Just imagine yourself 10 years from now. In that future, you haven’t created a nest egg, you are living week to week, pay check to pay check, or pension to pension. You didn’t plan when you should have and you didn’t act when you could have, and now its all too late. What does that feel like right now? Ok, so lets change that feeling, and let’s explore the POSSIBILITIES THAT ARE OPEN TO YOU RIGHT NOW.

Lets ‘go back to the future’, in this moment. It’s 10 years down the road. Your wealth is above average. You have spent the last 10 years planning AND ACTING in accordance. Your net worth has grown because you determined that you’d never allow yourself to be a ‘financial survivor’.

Now let me bring you back to today. In this moment, you have two choices and both will determine the quality of your future. Here are the choices:

1. You ignore acting outside the square, because stepping outside the square, and doing the things you are afraid of, is uncomfortable. So, you fall for that illusion, and you just keep dreaming as you wander into the field of ‘Wishes and Wants and Hopes’. You keep doing the same old same old, because reflecting on and acting on the future is uncomfortable. So, you do ‘no-thing’, expecting ‘some-thing’ to happen but it doesn’t. Then your future arrives, and so too does the discomfort.

2. The second choice means that you have to plan your future, reflect on the financial inevitably of you acting in accordance with the planning. You step outside your comfort zone. Its feels weird, uncomfortable, and often scary. But you know it’s right. Eventually you wander into your future, and everything is in order. You have literally built a mini empire. You can do what you want, go to where you want, and do it when you want. Now HOW DOES THIS FEEL, right now?

I want you to reflect now on what you can do to build your future. My suggestion…. reach out and send us an email asking us how you can start. We’ll get back to you, because we know it’s important to you. We know YOU are important.

Are your habits destroying you?

IF YOU LOVE YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW….Don’t read this!!!

An addiction is when the body does something that the mind doesn’t want to do. Come with me here…..It’s a Saturday evening and your mother-in-law is coming over for dinner. An hour before hand your partner asks you “Can you please be patient with my Mum tonight and not be mean to her?”. To which you declare to yourself silently; “Ok, tonight I won’t be mean to her, in fact I’m not even going to let her bother me”.

You see, it’s your mother-in-law who pushes your emotional buttons. It’s actually her fault that you become a monster. It’s her fault you are angry, not yours. You’re perfect right?

Thirty minutes before she arrives, you are thinking those nasty thoughts again. In fact, you are already in planning phase as you mentally rehearse the onslaught you will bestow on her if she once again comments on the way you are raising your children. Before she is even present in your house, you are already emotional.

This is called an ADDICTION. Your body is now reliving the experience biologically before she is even present. The woman could be in Guatemala City, and your body and mind are thinking and feeling as though she is right on front of. The body has gone against the wishes in your mind, and can’t be controlled.

So, we take her to the edge of the continental shelf (that is not an aisle in Woolworths). We embalm the poor woman in plastic, tie a blacksmiths anvil around her leg….and push the dear lady into the abyss of the ocean…never to be seen again. Problem solved right? The emotional button-pusher is gone forever. You can now breathe a sigh of relief.

WRONG. We got rid of the trigger, but not the ADDICTION. You can guarantee that within one week, your body will be screaming for the same chemical signature that your mother-in-law triggered. The mind will then respond and find another poor innocent victim for you to become emotional about. It might be your next-door neighbour, or even your Mother.

Do we take them back to the ‘shelf’? Repeat the cycle and before you know you are reading about a serial killer being blamed for random disappearances….AND IT’S YOU.

We have addictions for every long-term emotion. When we attempt to break free, we can’t. So, we are out of control. We are no longer in charge of our emotions, our feelings, nor our own lives……….

They Thought My Dad Was Crazy For Talking to a Machine… Then It Talked Back

They Thought My Dad Was Crazy For Talking to a Machine… Then It Talked Back

My dad was called crazy for talking to machines… who’s crazy now?

My father revolutionarily starting talking to machines over 40 years ago now, long before siri, Alexa and Google Home.

The only problem was the machines didn’t speak back and he looked completely crazy.

People couldn’t understand why someone would repeatedly ask a machine to do things for them. Machines can’t understand you, nor can they do anything except for what they’re programmed to do!

But these same people who thought my old man was crazy, were doing the exact same thing!

We are all constantly talking to the pre-programmed, pre-determined, “brain machine” in our head which works just as mechanically as the old printer my dad would talk to during his nightshift.

Our “brain machine” works by feeding off our old habits and past experiences. It’s constantly re-running scenarios from our childhood, over and over, times of failure and despair, causing us to subconsciously react to situations today with the same demeanour.

Guess what ended up happening to my dad?

Eventually he got the machine to start listening to him,  just as easily you can get your brain machine to start listening to you too.
