When was the last time?

Actually, when was the last time that you made yourself a priority in terms of following your heartfelt dreams? I mean, really digging in deep and allowing those long forgotten dreams to come to the surface?

Take the Time to Dream

We are good at not prioritising the best for ourselves when it comes to planning & working towards the future. All too often we allow the plans & dreams of others to dictate how our life plays out before us.

But why do we allow this to happen? There may be many reasons including family of origin traits, previous disappointments, pressure from love ones or simply being told at a very young age that certain things are not possible for people like us.

I don’t know what it is for you, however, I do know what the answer is! Simply put, you need to do 3 things in order to make the changes you ‘believe’ you desire in life.

  1. Take the time to dream again, I mean, really dream.
  2. Create a plan to follow, beginning right away and
  3. Execute that plan every single day

OK, this list sounds simple enough and yet, I am willing to wager not 3% of you reading this post understand where to start or what action to take. And to be honest, that is understandable for some of the reasons I mentioned earlier.

So how do we make a change that sticks, make a step in the right direction? This is where the services of a qualified coach come into play. A coach quite simply can take you from where you are today to where you desire to be tomorrow.

Step into your Future!

Your future self is waiting for you to take that next right step 🙂

Strange Practices of People Who Never Succeed

Over the years, I’ve observed a lot of people who have not achieved what they want in life. These people often have a lot in common. I thought it might benefit YOU to have a list of things NOT to do. So, following is what seems to be a mental “To Do” list for non-achievers:


1. Don’t listen to anyone who has had actual success.

2. Take advice from everybody you know who has never achieved a dream.

3. Plan, plan, plan, and plan some more. Get everything 100% right. Then check it a few more times before you actually DO something.

4. Blame others for your failure to achieve what you want.

5. Take time every day to remind yourself what a loser you are.

6. Repeat the same mistakes over and over.

7. Keep going in the same direction that has never gotten you where you want to go.

8. Don’t do anything to replace those limiting, negative thoughts you’ve always had.

9. Keep spending time around those people who assure you you’ll never be successful.

10. Insist that you are right, no matter what the outcome of any action, because being wrong is worse than failure.

Is there anything on this list that YOU ever do?

If so, how can you change it?

See The Big Picture!

We all get in a position at times in our lives where it’s hard to see the forest for the trees. That’s why it’s an important daily habit to step back and look at the big picture.

Self-improvement is continual, gradual, daily change. The problem is, it takes daily focus – which most people tend to lose.

When there’s an unexpected crisis, THEN it’s easy to focus. You handle the danger on the spot. But when a bad situation develops little by little, day after day, we’re often not really aware of the problem until it’s too late.

If that situation sounds familiar to you, then it’s REALLY important that you see the big picture. Life demands your focus. If you aren’t in the daily habit of focusing, then life will send some pain your way to get your attention.


It’s a lot less stressful to make life changes on your own schedule, avoiding that crisis. When you look at the big picture and see changes you’d like to make, you can start making them gradually, which is much more pleasant than having life force those changes on you.

Sometimes, even gradual change can be difficult because of the way others see you. If that is the case, then THAT is a good place to start. Think through a plan that will put you in a position where other peoples’ preconceived notions don’t matter to you – so that all that really matters is what YOU think. Then work that plan on a daily basis. Make it a habit, and make it reality.

Self-improvement is something we all need to do, every day. Avoiding it doesn’t work. Instead, step back. Look at the big picture. Which life problem area stands out? Is it something you really want to change? OK. Start. Make a plan and work your plan every day. EVERY day!

Before you know it, you will be a different person. You’ll be especially proud of the changes you made in yourself. And this will make you a happier person.

To Your Success,

ILN Video Challenge – Day 71/100 Lay Firm Foundations

It is so important in life that we all lay firm foundations.

This is important not only in business, but in your personal and spiritual life too.

Imagine what would happen to a house whose foundations were not solid? I think we all know the outcome in times of difficulty.

Same is true for you personally, and also in your business as well. This is my take on the subject, enjoy 🙂

Soory I didnt finish that video off at all. had a few “technology challenges” late last night 🙂

As always, I would appreciate you leaving me a comment below.

Have an awesome day and go lay some firm foundations!!
