It’s time to draw a line in the sand, friend.

It’s time to stop pretending you don’t want real success, solid income and excellent health.

Your excuses are lies, and they keep you down.

I’m not the most successful, though I’ve done well and have everything I need right now. There is much I am learning about accelerating my progress.

Yes, success is subjective, but much of it we can all agree on.

Here are some ways I am maximising my odds for continued and expanded success in my life right now:

Working with someone who’s done it.

What are you looking to do? What has someone achieved that you’d love?

Find them, talk to them and find a way to absorb their knowledge, experiences and insight. What if someone could give you the steps and accountability you needed to get there faster, and save potentially years of frustration?

What would that be worth to you?

Right now, I’m working with a business coach who has sold millions in online courses. I want to do the same, so I am paying him to help with my next launch.

Invest in yourself, even if it feels like a painful stretch. It should. If it hurts, you’ll work twice as hard to make sure you earn that money back.

Building my personal brand.

Simon Sinek said:

‘People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.’

(I’d also add — they buy based on who you are too).

The context of you as a human being on a mission that gives context to your products and services is a long-term asset.

Many overlook its significance.

But the larger, more engaging, and more meaningful your brand is, the easier it will be to make an impact with your knowledge and earn money from your skills.

I use personal stories, observations and lessons to demonstrate my humanity and authority on several topics.
