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.

Discomfort is the Measure of Success

Discomfort is the Measure of Success

Are you constantly avoiding all the difficult conversations in your life?

Most people make up excuses as to why they shouldn’t ask their boss for a pay rise or promotion, why they shouldn’t talk to that attractive man or woman, or why they shouldn’t be honest with their partner about how they feel.

Fact is, so much success and happiness is on the other side of an uncomfortable conversation, which we are too afraid to have.

In most cases, when people do embrace the discomfort, they tend to realise that the worse part wasn’t even the conversation, but the overthinking and avoidance of the conversation in the first place.

Stop making excuses, stop beating around the bush, and stop suffering from the resentment of not facing those difficult conversations.

The System Designed to Shut You Up – THE SCHOOL SYSTEM

The System Designed to Shut You Up – THE SCHOOL SYSTEM

The reason you’re not financially independent…

If you have been to school, be scared, be real scared. If you have kids in school, you’d better shake in your boots, wake up and crap yourself. You better do some serious ‘home schoolin’ real FAST.

A recent study showed that 80% of school leavers had lost their ‘creativity’ at the time they left school, as well as most of their confidence. Now the school system will scream aloud that, they are ‘doing a great job’, ‘kids today are smarter than they were years ago’. So if the school system is so effective, how come our kids are not learning to have an entrepreneurial mindset, to be great achievers no matter what their grades, to learn how to save, manage money, be wealth creators, pursue their dreams, lead, plan, set goals, have drive, be motivated. Most school leavers will tell you that getting a ‘9 to 5 job’, ‘working for the man’, ‘working your finger to the bone’ is GOOD. Thats crap!

That’s not good , that’s survival. Survival is bobbing up and down in the water, never quite drowning but never reaching the green fields and pasture. Now I know teachers, and I’ve had teachers, and they stick to the curriculum and in that regard they do it well. I get that. But for frig sake, shouldn’t we all wake up and see where the system is designed to keep you and your kids in survival mode.

Do you remember looking at your children when they were born and wanting nothing more, than for them to be great. Then we put them in school at 5 years old CAUSE THE SYSTEM TELLS US TO, and we leave them there for 13 years to become chant memorisers so they can memorise answers for exam sheets. No wonder they can’t change their ways and become wealth creators. They have been indoctrinated for 13 years. Try changing that, bet you wish you could.

This system is designed to keep you limited. AND IT WORKED SO WELL WE ALL MISSED IT. The system needs to be truthful with us. We should be greeted on our first day at school with “Hi little Johnny, welcome to school, I’m here to $%^&* you up”..
