Make Selling Effortless

Whenever I mention the word selling to a new or small online business owner they usually cringe. This is because many new online business owners self-sabotage themselves in many different ways when it comes to selling their products or services.

Every person is in sales, whether we are business owners, employees, parents or even in your own personal relationships, you are in sales!

How can everyone be in sales you are thinking?

Because everyone sells themselves somehow. This could be a mother who is selling to her son that if he loads the dishwasher so he can then have treats, Or when you are married, you definitely sold yourself to the person you married, so much so, they made a life-long commitment to you!

So you have been pretty much selling yourself your whole life, but you just didn’t know you were.

When it comes to selling in your business it really is 80% psychology and 20% mechanic’s that lead to a building a foundation of raving followers that turn into paying clients. Your mindset plays a massive part in how you run your business and how you sell to people.

I have spent over 11 years studying behaviour science, and I became a qualified psychologist in May 2007, and I am also a certified Life Coach and Certified saleswomen who has been in business for 13 years. So when you place the knowledge you have of human emotion with selling, it opens up a completely new door of selling.

Gone are the days of cold calling and knocking on doors and making random calls to people’s homes or talk them to death for 3 hours online in hope to buy your product and services. Human beings work through emotion, and everything we do or buy is through how it makes us feel.

We buy from who we trust and know. We place this trust in that person, and then when the service does not live up to the standards it was marketed we then feel disappointed and upset. We feel cheated after parting with our hard earned cash to pay for them goods or services.

To sell successfully from your online business through social media is a skill which takes practice, but once you have mastered the skills and incorporate it into your life on a daily basis, it becomes effortless. You then begin to build a strong foundation of raving fans and you create a leadership influence within your following. This leadership influence leads you to attract people and opportunities that you would never have before experienced.

However, back up a moment, before we can get you to the success you want to be in sales we first have to get passed the self-sabotage that we always do when we are on our road to selling in the online world.

So why you are self-sabotaging yourself over selling?

You are self-sabotaging yourself over selling because you don’t have the belief inside of you that you can sell well, and this is then making you nervous in front of your potential clients. This is projecting out of you onto your prospective client and they sense your uncomfortable energy.

So the first thing we really need to take a look at is raising your confidence in sales and there is an easy way to do this. We just have to convince your subconscious mind that you are indeed worthy of the sales you make.

So how do we convince you that you are worthy? Well, this can be easily achieved by daily affirmations which can change the belief systems that we operate from.

What are Affirmations?

An affirmation is spoken or written statement that is read daily which can complete transform your thoughts and make your belief systems shift to a whole new level. When using affirmations you speak of already achieving the goals you desire. Which then shifts the mind to that level of achievement and so you start to believe you are what you want to be.

When your mind shifts to this level the laws of the universe work in harmony with these new thoughts and draws everything to you that you need to become what it is you desire.

So basically if you read a simple paragraph of say 3 to 4 lines twice a day. You start to become what it is you truly want to be and believing you can be it. Before your very eyes, you will start attracting the things and people to yourself in order to make your goal possible.

If you use the same affirmation for 90 days and ready it constantly throughout your day, you will start to really see a drastic change in your thoughts.

Now to begin with you may think how can reading a sentence every day make me sell better?

Well In order for affirmations to work you need to place them somewhere that you will read them at least twice a day. I place my affirmations right in front of my desk in my office and I have one placed in my bathroom near my sink. This way I read them twice daily when I brush my teeth. In the whole time it takes me to brush my teeth I am repeating this paragraph over and over again. You need to have fun with it and turn it into a little game for yourself and see how many times you can read the paragraph in the time it takes you to brush your teeth. Then place other affirmations in places where you spend a lot of time, this could be at your desk, or in your car.

You need to place the affirmations in a visible place so that when you look straight at them you can read them and repeat them several times. This then starts to create new belief systems within your sub-conscious mind.

I want to really start making you believe that it is possible for you to become a top salesperson in your industry. Sales people who are in the top 20% and top 10 % of sales are there because they believe they can achieve whatever selling goal is possible. The top 20% of salespeople are very clear on how much they are going to earn that month and how many clients they are going to attract to them because they have already trained their sub-conscious mind to go seek it.

In an exercise I am going to share in this blog with you, we are going to use an affirmation that is used by the top 20% of salespeople in the world that helps them believe they are in fact they are the best sales people in the world and helps raise their confidence by making themselves BELIEVE they are the best sales people so that they become complete crystal clear and start to train their mind to become a better earner.

Exercise:
To strengthen that belief system of yours, we first need to train your subconscious mind so that your beliefs system starts to really become the best at what you do. You can do these easily by using this affirmation on a daily basis and repeating it over and over again out loud to yourself many many times over a day.

I have given you two affirmations below to use daily to raise your self-confidence and belief that you can become fantastic in sales. Repeat these affirmations daily for 90 days and then see the difference within your self-confidence levels.

Affirmation 1:
“I am in the top 20% of the best sales people in the world”
Affirmation 2:
“I am amazing and I am successful at everything I do”

Keep repeating these affirmations to yourself daily, 20-30 times daily to train your mind to become a better salesperson. Take courses in marketing and qualify as a sales person to help you understand how to master selling skills. This, plus, training your mind will have an amazing effect on you sell in your business.

Try it yourself, and leave the fear of selling behind!

Have an awesome Tuesday, and make it your best day yet!

Let Go of the Guilt, You Deserve to be Paid!

Asking for payment can be so difficult when you are a new business owner. You feel guilty for asking for the money you have worked for and now asking the client to pay feels somewhat difficult and you feel guilty for taking the money from them.

Why do we feel like that? And how can we get around this so we feel better in the long run, and get paid on time? In this blog, I am going to really break down the feelings of that guilt and give you a few tips, plus some message guide templates that you can place in your messages/emails to clients if you need them.

Let’s start with the guilty feeling, why do we feel guilty when we ask for money?

All business owners feel nervous, anxious or not very confident of taking money from somebody at some stage in their lives. Especially if it’s a new program you are launching or you are a new coach on the scene. Yes, it can be nerve-wracking, but what you do need to consider is first writing your payment rules of what you will tolerate in business and what you won’t.

You really don’t want to come across to any potential client like a push over, so having them boundaries in place before you even take on your first client is going to lay the foundations of the service you provide. The guilty feeling is because you care and feel like you are taking away something from them and if you are hearing “I just can’t afford it” well this plays on your heart strings and you accept what they are saying to you.

1) You MUST start believing in yourself that you are indeed worth every penny that your service delivers. You provide a service and if that person is not going to pay you up front or in a payment plan with the first payment up front, then they really cannot be so serious about wanting your service or needing the change you provide. Move on to the next person that is serious and will pay you and save yourself pulling your hair out.

2) Pre-write all your “asking for payment” messages and emails and keep them in a word document so you can just copy and paste and send. If you are new to all of this online business stuff, then this will keep your doubt and guilt from winning. Creating emails/messages that are planned ahead of time, beats the guilt by you just copying and pasting and send without a 2nd thought.

What if you have no clue what to write in the first place?

1) There is many ways to communicate, the right way, and the wrong way. By doing it the right way, it’s more effective and will get the outcome you want.

2) Here are some templates to copy and paste and keep for yourself (YES! Really, take them!)

Template one:
Good morning (name of person), I hope you are very well this morning, thank you so much for placing your trust in me to help you with (whatever solution you give) I am so excited to get started with you. Please do let me know your email address to send out my invoice. I really look forward to our future journey together.

Have an amazing rest of your day!

Template Two:
Good morning (name of person),
I hope you are very well today, I am so looking forward to getting started with our project. So that we can start to move forward and make the magic in your life happen, please do let me know your email address to send out my invoice. I really look forward to our future journey together.

Have an amazing rest of your day!

Take both these templates and tweak to your heart desires and keep them placed on a word document and use them time and time again.

Asking is a skill, which takes practice and like a muscle in our bodies we have to build that muscle over time so that it becomes strong. Along with this asking skill needs to come the belief that you truly are worth the service you provide.

Lastly, let’s tackle when clients don’t pay you and keep making excuses not to pay you on payment plans, now what do you do?

This goes back to start of this blog and your rules, boundaries and placing strong foundations down, to begin with, and placing them all in your terms and agreements on your website, or in your contracts.

Let the rules be known before you set out to work together, that you will add late payment fees of anything from $49.99+ after 7 days of the payment not being paid, then a late payment every 5 days after that and when it gets to 28 days still without payment, then it goes straight to collections and you no longer deal with it. A collection company chases down the payment for you with a high risk of that client developing a black mark on their credit score.

You went into business to provide a service, a solution and to help people. If people are unable to stick to your boundaries then there is a lack of appreciation there from that person and you deserve better.

Stay strong, keep them feet of yours on the ground and know you are worth every penny you charge!

I hope this helps you today, have a wonderful Wednesday and make it your best day yet!

Much Love

Don’t Like Hearing The Truth? Then Don’t Speak to Me!

Every day and I mean every day! I receive messages from people all over the world.

So many people needing help, wanting to succeed and asking for my advice. How can I make this happen? how can I get through this? Can you help me? I am reaching out to you for help, I was wondering if you can help me?

And you know what 98% of these people don’t like? …My honesty! In fact, they despise it that much they come back at me with a defensive message or totally ignore me altogether. You see truth HURTS! It hurts so bad that we have to accept that the position we are in is not serving us very well at that moment in time.

Human beings have a tendency to 1) not ask for help and 2) When we do learn to ask we then have to learn to ACCEPT. Because what comes after asking maybe something we don’t wish to hear. When you ask, you receive, so working on them acceptance levels if you wish to ask in the first place is a MUST!

Don’t come to me if you are not prepared to hear the truth. There is most likely 100’s of people out there that will take your money off you, kiss your butt for doing so and place you on a program that will either become shelve-help or leave you still wondering why you have not got any further to your dreams 6 months later?

Not on my watch! I give you the blunt truth and say it how it is because I don’t have time to fanny dance around with people who are not serious about making a change in the world. If you want your butt wiping, then maybe am not the coach/teacher for you. I only work with truth warriors that are willing and prepared to work from their WHY with extreme passion and want for change and will implement what I teach them and they will gain results through applying what I teach them.

However, before I even consider working with anyone you first have to pass the first test to even get any further with me, and you want to know what that test is?

I watch how well you handle the truth in our first conversation. I watch how you react and see how well you accept the truth, to begin with, and that tells me everything. Your emotions and reactions tell me everything! How well you can accept and how well you communicate your help in the first place. When you are a trained psychologist and Life Coach, you cannot help BUT analyze human behavior science. There is always behavior patterns and after over 12 years of studying psychology, mindset and Life Coaching I have had many many years of understanding why people act the way they do.

Yet still one thing remains in behavior, and that is people are not great at accepting the truth. Have a think as you go forward on your journey today how you react when somebody tells you the truth about something?

Check in with yourself and become aware of how you are acting? Are you getting defensive as soon as the truth is told? Are you? Then maybe it’s time to work more on your acceptance levels.

Or,

Do you accept truth humbly and then thank the person for their advice and feedback? You do? Congratulations, you will go really far in this life for asking and being willing to accept, now it’s up to you to go away and implement that truth in order for you to gain results.

It all starts with truth, and if you can’t accept it, then please don’t ask me for it in the first place.

A deep and powerful thoughts for you to ponder over this Thursday,

Have a wonderful rest of your week, I can see the weekend and more house decorating from here….. Sighhhh 🙂

Big hugs,

Why I got It So WRONG! (and how to put it so right!)

Success is something that almost every person dreams about. Flashy cars, world travel, big house and piles of money in the bank. We want it all and we want it all NOW!

However, the road to success and true wealth is far from straight and easy. It takes a lot of work, tonnes of patience and a whole load of work on yourself to get there. Five years ago, when I set out on my self-discovery journey and had my eyes opened to The Law of Attraction by coming across my first ever positive thinking book, The Secret by Rhonda Byrnes, I thought this was it! I had found the formula to that mega-successful life and everyone who taught this in the book and the film said basically “Think positive thoughts and you will attract whatever you want”.

Ok, seems easy enough, right? WRONG! I had never been more wrong about anything in my life and The Secret was cleverly marketed as the platform it is so that you would go on to hire the coaches presented to us on that platform, that’s all it was.

Now, don’t get me wrong I am not here to bash Law of Attraction coaches or people who teach the laws of the universe. I simply want to host my new show Spiritual Success has a testament of my own life. What worked for me and what happened when I dug deeper down a rabbit hole so deep for nearly 6 years, that I came right back to where it all began with the spiritual being who created it all and wrote them laws in the first place.

Living by laws of the universe was NOT the answer to my broke bank account, bad habits and victimhood 6 years ago. It certainly wasn’t going to help me in any way possible. What was going to help me was changing my mindset daily and facing a whole lot of demons about myself and facing the truth? The day you can comfortably look at your reflection in the mirror and truly know that you have ridden your past demons, forgiven yourself and everybody who has hurt you and understand that you were created for a specific purpose and that every one of them experiences was supposed to make you into the person you are today, then you start to begin to understand that nobody is to blame for any of it.

Then when you have got to that point of accepting all of that, you then start to see that all along there were rules that you were supposed to live by. Rules that were left on this planet more than 4,000 years ago, only along that 4,000 years, people choose to ignore them or abuse them for their own power, which led to people living blindly while running on a hamster wheel of life and blaming everybody else and everything else for their circumstances.
I wanted to share with you what has worked for me for the past 15 months. What I experienced to begin with, which lead me what I am about to teach you and how learning it affected my life and how it felt like I was learning to walk again. I hope by fetching this show to you with my co-host Kim B.Smith, that it really helps guide you on your journey and teaches you also to walk again.

This first show is based on the tests we have in life, is life one big test?
*What do I need to do to succeed in life?
*How can I build wealth?
*How can I really get the lifestyle I desire?
*Why are all these things happening to me at once?

Find out on today’s show with myself and my co-host Kim Boudreau Smith on HOW you can get through that test and be promoted to where you want to be!

Please do feel free to comment below and share to help touch somebodies life today!
Them too, like you, may need to hear this message today!

Don’t Like Me? That’s ok, Because I Really Don’t Care If You Don’t

There is going to be times on your journey to living out your dreams that you will come into contact with people that will try to pull you down, tell you that you’re doing it all wrong, possibly tell you your full of yourself and ask “Who the heck to you think you are?”.

My friend, please don’t take any of this to heart and never believe what people say to you. Taking the journey to making your dreams become reality is HARD FRICKING WORK! That takes tonnes of passion, time and blood, sweat and tears.

It is the hardest road you will every walk and be the toughest thing you every achieve in life. You will have to face things that you don’t like about yourself and drop all victimhood, complaining, bitching, excuse making and tantrums to get it done. So, the last thing you need is to care that somebody does not like you for the way you do things.

One of the toughest things we have to accept on this journey is “What anybody thinks of you is none of your business”. Once you develop this belief in your mind and keep it growing, you will find worrying, anxiety and everything else will fade away the more you work on this belief to make it stronger.

So how can you do this?

Well, that is easy, you just repeat this sentence many many times over (out loud) during the day for the next 60 days and watch how your mind switches from worrying what everybody thinks about you, to not really giving two furry bunnies and not caring.

“What anybody thinks of you is none of my business”.

Keep reading it out loud to yourself and sow this seed into yourself daily. The only thing standing between you and worrying what others think about you right now is you repeating the sentence above and 60 days of speaking it.

Now, there is the other option of doing nothing, caring what everybody thinks about you and letting the toxic comments of others grind you down to nothing until you want to give up completely on your dreams.

Trust me I use to care too much about what people thought about me once upon a time and I suffered from it immensely until I started to work on my mindset and belief system and understand that with a little work and action each day with repeating such words as above, I could completely change my thought pattern completely and stop driving myself nuts with old beliefs.

Your mind is one amazing creation, and it can be changed and given a makeover with completely new beliefs, which then trigger new emotions and actions you never thought possible. Let’s start today with this one and create a 60-day challenge to not letting bad comments get to you.

Print out the sentence: “What anybody thinks of you is none of my business” and place it somewhere like your bathroom, or a place you spend most the time in a morning. While you are brushing your hair, teeth or grooming yourself in the morning. Keep your eyes on that sentence and repeat, repeat and repeat some more.

Let’s sow a new seed to you believing in yourself more and not caring what others think about you!

Have a wonderful Monday, let’s make the next 60 days mean something!

Much love and appreciation

Move So You Can Flourish

There comes a time on our self-discovery journey where we have to move to flourish. We have to re-locate to thrive at our best and surround ourselves with different sights, sounds and people to excel at our true capacity.

Where I live right now, I have lived here for 22 years and never asked to be moved here. I came to live her at the age of 15 years old when my mother divorced her 2nd husband and ran off with his best friend. Here I remained for 22 years and went on to have my children, build my first business and became a working single mother of two amazing children.

20 years later that reality has somewhat changed and now my children are adults and I am a grandmother to Rosie and our baby angel David. It is now time for me to relocate to flourish at my full capacity, to completely detach myself from everything and leave the town that I never asked to live in. When I say everything, I mean everything!

I am taking a few suitcases and boxes and either selling or giving away EVERYTHING! To re-start my life over with my partner Matthew and start to design the new home, in the new town just how WE had DREAMED. Not how somebody else wants it, not how it “just happened to be” and not because we ended up somewhere because of others.

This is mine and Matthew’s chance to create the life we have always wanted. With this big major shift in mind, there is a lot of emotions and there is a lot of processing for my mind to do. The doubtful questions have sprung in with their niggles of “Are you doing the right thing?”, and “What about the kids?” .. Blah blah blah and the other crap that the devil like to swirl around your brain to keep you stuck.

If there is one thing that losing a grandchild has taught me, is that life is extremely precious and we cannot take any of it for granted. What raising two amazing children has taught me, is that in my hour of need and confusing doubts going through my mind, they were there for me delivering the right words that I needed to hear.

“Mum, you only live once and if you don’t do this now, then you may live to regret it” ..BOOM! Wise young adults!

The two people I held on for so long, give me the confirmation I needed to spread my wings and fly. Fly to relocate so that I can flourish and build their legacy.

Now, you may be thinking that 22 years is a heck of a long time! Why didn’t she move earlier? That is because I didn’t live by strict spiritual principles like I do now. I didn’t start my self-discovery journey until nearly 6 years ago and I didn’t know the meaning of life then, and nor did I understand the mighty power we live under and how living by them spiritual rules the right way can change your life forever.

For many many years, I kept getting them wrong, so I remained stuck. Stuck because I was getting placed right back at square one and not truly understanding why? Oh, how amazing clarity is and understanding how to do it all the right way.

And how do you know you are doing it the right way? Because your life starts to transform before your very eyes and extremely quickly. You start to understand how you have played the game of life wrong for so long and you learn to walk all over again. Play by the rules and you get rewarded, break them and you get punished and placed back at the square where you are broke, sick, frustrated, funding an expensive hobby not a business, and falling apart from a huge blow life.

Peter 5:6

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,

The above sentence changed my life in December 2015 and it completely explains why my life is so completely different today. It explains why I am about to move 200 miles away to a beautiful town and flourish has I build my legacy for generations to come.

I had to humble myself under the mighty power of God, live by his rules and understand what happens when I don’t. Then at the appropriate time, not my time, the time that I had to serve true as a true servant to him and his people, HE would then rise me up. Not my sister, not my brother, not my aunt… HIM!

So, now the decision has been made, the true servant (me) has risen and now it’s time for me to move so I can flourish! If you read this blog and think “She has gone nuts”, then that is completely fine, because I use to be that way, until I learnt the true understanding of living by powerful spiritual principles that WORK!

I will keep you updated on my move and look forward to sharing my amazing life transforming journey with you.

Have an awesome Tuesday, 

Much Love

Today Another Dream Becomes Reality!

Today another dream became reality for one of my previous clients.

Today Angela held in her hands the book that she had published! The masterpiece that she had taken from a blank word document to becoming a physical product that is now REAL!

15036246_1585386401770442_3428601406656841396_n

Writing and producing a book is a massive journey for any author to go through!

Why?

It’s because a book is not just words on paper, it’s an emotional journey too! So many don’t cross the finishing line to holding their book in their hands because they feel they are not worthy to complete it. Or so many give up 3 chapters in and leave it another 10 years to start again.

When the book is finished and complete it still doesn’t end there because you then have to market it to your followers so they will buy it. All authors who have taken this journey with me know only too well what it really takes to create a book and make it a success, and that it involves action taking.

It also involves kicking your gremlins and the old hag in the attic (the ego) to the kerb many times over to reach your overall goal of a completed book. So, today I wanted to give a MASSIVE awesome shout out to Angela and say congratulations for making your dream become reality and leaving a footprint in the sand for the next generation to be inspired.

I am proud of you to have come this far and even more honoured that you chose me to be your teacher to make it happen. Take this day to reflect on how far you have actually come and the journey you entailed on the way. After today life will never be the same again, because now you know “how” to focus your attention on making something huge a reality!

Much love to you my darling and I wish you the most success with this book and every book you bring to life in the future.

Respect The Money You Have & It Will Multiple!

The past 12 months have really opened my eyes up to a lot of things and one of them is money. How to truly respect it, deal with it wisely, save, invest and help those in need with it.

Who the money really belongs to? And who decides how much we have? Based on the everyday decisions we make.

Like 90% of the minds on this planet I never really truly understood the spiritual side of cash , that was until I really started focusing on it 12 months ago and starting to understand that there are certain laws to use and if we use them so wisely, our fortune will multiple even when others are in the dry season.

What do I mean?

Ok, let’s take one simple law that I learnt this year and of which has reaped its rewards for myself for sure. That law is to understand there is a season of plenty and a season of famine. How you work with your money over both of these seasons will determine how much or less you gain in the time of future famine.

To put it a more visual way, think about harvest time when farmers of all kinds sow their seeds for harvest and the harvest goes into bloom, then the crop is harvested and stored over the famine time (winter) to keep people feed through the winter time.

Well, this is the same thing if you are not saving money for the famine time and not noticing the seasons within each year of your business and not stocking up for your winter, guess what happens? You starve!

The amount of money and possessions that are in your possessions right now is the amount that your higher power thinks you are trusted with. No less, no more. (whether that is God, Universe, or Angels from your own personal perception) to me it’s God.

He owns the money and he decides if we are worthy of it by how we treat the money we have. He decides the dry season of your business to see if you are wise enough to stock up your harvest for the winter time. If you are wise enough to understand this, then you will be rewarded with so much more, even when other’s are famine.

If you are in a season of plenty right now and reaping a lot of business, my suggestion would be to store your harvest away for the dry season so that you can be trusted with the money you have and this will lead to you reaping so much more when others are in famine.

Your business will explode more in the dry seasons if you can stay true to the spiritual laws around money. It will happen before your very eyes and the rewards are astounding! All because you took the time to learn and understand the true spiritual laws of money and why it’s taken away, or given to us.

Money is like oxygen and without we can’t breath (eat, live in a home, do anything) so it’s a big need, so wouldn’t it be wise to understand the laws of the biggest need in your life?

So that you never have to struggle again?

Just a thought to leave you with on this Tuesday morning….

Have a wonderful rest of your week, and remember to start stock up your harvest, because winter is coming.

2016-10-24-13-27-43

Until next time

The Next 4 Weeks Are Crucial

Hey, there I hope you are well and having a fantastic week so far. You may have noticed I have not been around or highly visual on Facebook as I usually am but with little over 4 weeks to go before my Christmas vacation starts and 3 major projects to create and wrap up, my time is spent in my women den closed off from the virtual/outside world to enable these projects to come alive and be released by Christmas.

I decided this year to take 3 weeks out and really enjoy a long Christmas break before it is full steam ahead with the magazine launch in January 2017. That plus some huge in-person events that I will be hosting in London and New York City over the course of 2017.

Rest and time out are vital if you have huge things coming up in the new year. It’s really important to keep grounded and keep your feet on the ground and enjoy time away from social media doing simple and ordinary things. It’s even more important to stay focused and keep on the schedule leading up to this time so that you don’t have miss out on the time you had booked off in the first place.

This time of year is always a very active time for me and my team. With many authors wanting to have a best-selling book before Christmas, or others that are booking themselves in for a January appointment so they can take 2017 by storm, it is always a time of year that needs major focus and organisation (The UK spelling) so that we complete everything on time.

Which means I spend less time on social media and more time leading and managing the projects at hand. This year we are tying up 2016 with a loud and proud BANG! On December 7th, 2016 I launch my last EVER anthology book! Yes, you read that right! My last EVER compilation book. From here on out I will only be consulting these projects and teaching others how to make it happen for themselves. Of course, I will always write books, but from now on they will be solo-authored books only. I have very much enjoyed my journey of creating a best-selling book series and placing together this last business book with my partner Kim B. Smith, but now it’s time to teach others “how” to build their own success with books, just like I did.

The No B.S Truth What it Takes to Build a Successful Business seemed like the best way to go out with a BANG! To help so many business owners in the world by cutting the crap and telling them what it really takes to succeed online.

Plus, to top the year off nicely we are also working on this amazing powerful project:

Of which, will fetch awareness of mental health issues and how attempted suicide really effects people and their families. With suffering from mental health issues myself along my own journey and a failed suicide attempted in my mid 20’s I felt a huge emotional connection to working on this project. It is a real pleassure to help fetch this book to life and to have written it’s foreword for the compiler Kristie Knights.

Tying these projects up and making them reality before Christmas is vital so that we can make room for the birth of The Missing Piece Magazine which launches on Jan 17th, 2017!

The Missing Piece Magazine is an interactive digital self-discovery magazine where you will be opened up to powerful information and exercises to accompany you on your self-discovery journey. The Missing Piece Magazine also helps online business owners, coaches, and mentors to be positioned in front of  ‘highly’ targeted audience by presenting themselves and their knowledge our network coverage per month.

So, get ready for a life-changing month, every month!

With all this awesomeness coming up, you can now see why the next 4 weeks are major vital for this creative mind to stay focused and on track to have all this completed in time. I hope you make the most of your 4 weeks and have the Christmas break you deserve too.

I best get back to work before the sun goes down, 4 weeks and counting, tick follows tock follows tick etc…

Speak to you soon,

Sometimes That Slap in The Face is What We Need!

You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances,

the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.
~John Rohn
(America’s foremost business philosopher)

As well as using gratitude to require what it is we want in life. We do also have to perform different beliefs to work in harmony with the law of reaping and sowing; one of these many beliefs is taking full responsibility for your own life.

It’s Time to Quit the Excuses!

How many times have these ‘road blocks’ fought their way into your head?

“Success is great for someone else, but it’s just not for me…”

“Finding success is simply too hard for me…”

“I’m swamped as it is and don’t have any extra time…”

“I can’t afford to invest in myself right now; I have bills to pay…”

“The way things are isn’t so bad – I don’t have to have a vacation”

“It’s always been this way, it always will be…”

“No one in my family is successful; it’s just not in my genes…”

“I tried that before and it didn’t work…” “I’m not smart or talented like those successful people…”

“My situation is different; it won’t work…”

The old adage “Who you spend time with is who you become” isn’t just isn’t just a phrase, it’s a reality, and these “Insiders” are who you want to spend your time with as you’re travelling companions!

Excuses are well-planned lies!

  • Don’t be one of the 98% that blames outside circumstances on everything
     98% of the population do nothing but complain & make excuses
     98% of the population don’t realise life is a CHOICE
     98% of the population reject the TRUTH
     98% don’t realise you create or allow things to happen

To start the journey to a new way of life you have to take FULL responsibility for your life.

From this day forward you have to stop making excuses, blaming and complaining. To begin with, this will not be easy to accept and may feel like quite a slap in the face. Believe me, I know only too well myself, and what a huge step it is to overcome. BUT once you do it, then it will change your life forever.
We spend most of our lifetime complaining and finding excuses and blaming outside ourselves rather than realising it’s our response that predicts the outcomes of our situations, to begin with. You have to give up making excuses. For instance blaming the weather, blaming your partner, blaming the traffic that made you late for work, blaming the economy that you’re skint and then blaming everyone else for the overall quality of YOUR life.

The quality of the life you are experiencing is a result of how you are responding to the events that happen in your life;

Your Situation + Your Reaction = Your Outcome

You will notice that I have written YOUR SITUATION plus YOUR REACTION equals YOUR OUTCOME. This formula means that the situation you are in and the reaction that you have to your situation will equal your outcome.
So what people usually do is when they don’t get the outcome they want in life. You will find that they blame the event on outside circumstances. There is nothing you can do about external events. The world is just how the world is, but what YOU can do is change your reaction to a situation which will change the outcome.
If you are in a situation where somebody or something is annoying you then you should address that situation. Rather than complaining in a different area of your life about this problem. More than often you will find that people will go to work and complain about their partners, and then come home in the evenings and complain about their work colleagues and boss.
What is getting solved by doing this?…………….NOTHING!
Rather than talking about the situation with the person where the problem lies, we choose not to do so, and this then leads us to complain rather than get something done about the problem. Just by changing our reaction to the situation would equal a totally different outcome for you.
We could change the situations at work by telling our employers where we are not happy and the same at home with your partner. We can change our relationships by communicating with our people better, and just by letting them know how we feel.
Just remember you’re complaining….BUT you are the one that is allowing it to happen!
Changing our reactions to situations can completely change our lives. I know this from experiencing domestic violence, by me changing my reaction to the situation (ending the relationship) resulted in my escape from the abusive relationship.
This formula also needs to be used in reactions. When peoples say things to us we tend to show are emotions by reacting before thinking. Please remember this very important rule.
It’s not what people say to you it’s how you react once they have said it. If you learn to be a whole lot calmer and learn not to lose your temper. Then you will start to think before you speak and with doing this you will also receive a different outcome of your situation.

For Example:
Q. If Jenny responded angrily to a comment. Who would be the one left hurt?
A. Jenny would

Q. If Jenny had responded calmly and answered in a calm fashion. Who would be left calm and unhurt?

A. Jenny would
So you see two totally different outcomes by Jenny changing her response. The first response would have caused Jenny’s self-esteem to become lower and left her feelings hurt. Whereas the second response would have increased her self-esteem and made her feel more confident. One out of three people has high self-esteem and the other two people suffer low self-esteem. The two people with low self-esteem will react in an angry fashion to events in their lives. Whereas people with high self-esteem, react a lot calmer and most likely answer with a very educated answer. When you have low self-esteem it stops you producing the results to become more successful.
To heighten your self-esteem you need to push past that feeling of fear that you have. We all have had that feeling of fear when we are not daring to do something because we are scared of rejection and scared of what will be said to us by others. If you push past this fear and do it anyway you will begin to realise that your self-esteem starts to increase on a whole new level.

  • This small exercise is designed for you to accept more responsibility in your life, just by asking yourself some simple questions.In the following main areas of your life, how will you take more responsibility?
    How will you take more responsibility for your health?
    How will you take more responsibility in your relationships?

I hope this little exercise helps you forward on your journey to your big goals!

With love & understanding
