Living a life that matters… WhatWillMatter
Archive for the 'Vision and Planning' Category
I know my recent blog posts have been lighthearted, because life is a balance between the serious achievement orientation that discipline requires and the creative, fun and adhoc contribution that humour provides. Taking life too seriously serves no purpose – it’s to be lived and enjoyed.
Success is in the journey – NOT the destination.
It’s easy to forget that…
If you could write to your younger self, using only two words, what would they be?

Every once in a while you witness something special – at this year’s Oscars, Matthew McConaughey wowed me with his acceptance speech for Best Actor. It is well worth the 3 minute investment.
I think his sources of inspiration are powerful and priceless:
- Have someone to look up to.
- Have someone to be proud of you.
- Have a hero to aspire to become – YOU in 10 years from now… WOW!
There are many life-defining moments, statements, incantations, words of wisdom and mantras.
#3 for me is priceless and timeless – embracing the concepts of gratitude and excellence from within.
That is an acceptance speech worthy of its own Oscar!
Every once in a while – take a moment to notice and revel in the beauty and majesty of the world, the earth, those around you…
Take a moment, breathe…
“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.”
This is one of those quotes that for me, recently, has been life changing – literally.
I have known and understood that YOUR perception is YOUR reality for a long time, but what and how that perception is warped and distorted has just recently come to light with the full appreciation of its influence. Several recent books have assessed and analysed this with fMRI and other analysis techniques to reveal the neurological evidence of how profound this new distinction is.
Not only is it based on how you are feeling right now, but it’s also been shown scientifically to be based on your personality predispositions which we have known for decades affects behaviour. What was not known is that perception is also distorted…
So that brings up the all-important question: Is it the distorted perception that creates the behaviour or is it the other way around?
Instinctively, I am in the perceiver camp – your perception affects your behaviour since I believe that you need to have a view of the world BEFORE you take action. That distorted, warped, modified, filtered perception is YOURS and ONLY yours.
Therein lies the challenge we all have – to reconcile our behaviour (our actions) within different and sometimes opposing (perceived) realities.
That being said, dealing with introspective insights like this is part of the journey we are all on. How you use and leverage them is what makes our Platinum Program unique and special. Imagine having access to this level of insight, self-reflection and awareness to truly craft the life(style) you want for yourself and your family…
It’s easier said than done, but with access to cutting edge research that is transforming how we see the world and ourselves, you will enter a journey of self-discovery that I promise will not only be enlightening, but equally rewarding – financially, emotionally, spiritually, professionally, socially and personally.
A holistic approach to life is no longer a “new age” approach. It is the only way to approach success and achievement.
I don’t know if you “do” New Year’s Resolutions, but I do… It’s one of a handful of strategies that changed my life – literally.
It’s a quick and easy thing to do, the challenge is to stick with it beyond February 1st!
Most people can’t even list 5 of their top 10 New Year’s Resolutions by the time Valentine’s Day comes around… Which reflects the poor results they get, however those that DO remember them achieve much more.
How much more?
Did you make New Year’s Resolutions last year?
How’d you go with them?
Can you even remember what they were?
Do you feel like time has gotten away from you, sometimes spinning out of control?
If you’re like most people, you do it as an annual ritual (if you think about it in time) and then once they are ‘done’, you quickly forget about them.
I’ve devised a simple and easy program to make sure you not only create your list of New Year’s Resolutions, but stick with them and achieve more of them.
