Seriously, play along with me for a few minutes.
What if you could go back in time?
- Would you approach, talk to or even dare to kiss that special girl or boy that captured your attention?
- Would you avoid that life-changing decision? Or would you MAKE that decision you originally avoided?
- Would you take or finish “that” degree that would have made “all” the difference in your career?
- Would you sell your stocks just before the markets crashed?
These are interesting questions and we know the saying – Hindsight is 20/20.
That being said, there are rare instances when principles can be “taught” in Real Time…
This is one such time.
If you KNEW the real estate and stock markets
were about to crash, would you prepare accordingly?
There are countless signs that the global economy is weak and near its breaking point. Even the Australian Economy which is one of the strongest and most robust, is fragile. A recent report shows Australians at record levels of debt, on the verge of credit default…
Here’s the thing – most people think it will happen to someone else… But this is going to happen to EVERYONE all at ONCE, indiscriminately – just like the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 and the Dot Com Crash of 2000.
This is a FREE BLOG and in as much as I believe in paying it forward, all I am willing to share (and date stamp) is that this is coming – it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN.
If you want to know WHAT to do to protect yourself, you need to become a client. Contact us, otherwise good luck and let me know how it all works out when this all plays itself out.
Note for future reference: Please look at the date this was published… which can also be confirmed as published on Twitter, Facebook and Linked In.
I know, don’t you wish you had (1) read this before it happened? and (2) if you did read it, that you had taken it more seriously?
Living a life that matters… WhatWillMatter
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.
