10mins a day and you could change your life…

BIG GOAL ---- little goal…

Consider this - the last goal you achieved – were you desperate or did you really desire it.

Most people set goals that are so huge they give up before things come to fruition. Is there something you wished to achieve but haven’t? What happened?

Now this thing doesn’t even have to be a huge dream, it could be something really simple. The thing is – simple or huge is different for all of us. My simple could be your huge – or vice versa.

Moving house for me isn’t a big deal.. pack up your stuff, cart it around, unpack it. Yet a friend of mine absolutely dreads house- wont move - its such a bit deal. My simple – her huge.

Yet for both of us the process is the same… look for somewhere you like, find it, move out of one place and into the other..

What makes that process achievable for me – and not her?


How come some people can be millionaires – others not?

The process is the same for us all. Make the most of opportunities – work and take some calculated risks.


Here’s the thing – if you gave up on a dream – you probably didn’t want it bad enough. Or the need wasn’t bad enough.

Isnt it funny how we can achieve the things we want out of desperation – yet not desire. Don’t you think it odd that when you are faced with an uncomfortable situation – you can find a solution – you do whatever you have to do to survive and achieve change. I bet if there was something you had to do – get a job to pay bills, move because of an unpleasant situation – you would find a way. You would enlist whatever help you needed, and you would make it happen.

Yet to make a million dollars, buy your dream house, take that vacation – the means eludes you.

Was the dream really that big that you had to give it away. How badly did you want what you gave up?


Ive been reassessing my life lately and it occurred to me that I have achieved everything that I have set out to do. Every time.. so why then do I find making millions, getting rich and living a life of freedom – so unachievable.

Look at your life - have you achieved the things you set out to. … anything… go camping, find a job, get married, have kids, get a loan, - pay off a loan, buy a house, move house/town, buy your first car, take a trip, master a sport, or simply just learn a sport, enrol in a course, get your license, meet new people, get your ears pierced.


So how do people get or do the things they want?

Think about a time when you achieved or fulfilled a dream, goal or plan.

What steps did you take?
What help did you have?
How did you feel when you succeeded.?

So there you go - you already have the skills and ability to achieve whatever you want… you know what to do.. Go do it.

Yet some things take a little more time than others. Some plans are just a bit bigger than getting out of bed today.
Does anyone plan to get rich, own more than one investment house, sit around all day?

JUST TAKE 10 minutes a day - create the dream, work out the process – look for the tools to achieve it, change what has to be changed and do it.

10mins a day and you could change your life…

How badly do you want it or need it. What steps do you need to take, who might be able to help you.

If you really truly believe you want it – or need it… you know you are capable of
