Our struggles in life give us scars, but they also give us growth, strength, faith, and a passion for life to break through all barriers so when we make it to our destiny, we can look back and embrace who we've become. 

I am who I am, and I've yet to become who I will be

Own your own life


The meaning of life is to give life meaning.

When we own our lives, we accept what we've inherited and the experiences we hold in our memories. 

We also claim our right to create new conditions if we're not happy with what's come before. 

We assume responsibility for changing what does not suit us. 

We acknowledge our own special talents and skills, and truly comprehend our right to enjoy the journey. 

In short, we embrace the meaning and purpose, the mystery and the beauty of our lives.

Do you feel that you own your life at the moment?

I think of life itself now as a wonderful play that I've written for myself... and so my purpose is to have the utmost fun playing my part.

Every man dies, but not every man lives...

3 levels of prosperity

I am looking forward to 16th May 2017.

"Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons."
-- Woody Allen

To become more prosperous, we need to change on at least two levels. 

First, we must ensure our financial affairs are in order. 

We need an income that at least covers our expenses. 

And we need a foundation of habits, tools and skills so we achieve some financial stability in our day-to-day experience.

Second, we must become aware of the beliefs we hold around money and prosperity. 

If we unconsciously believe we are lacking in some way, then no matter what we do, we will unconsciously sabotage our own efforts to improve our finances.

And third, it's helpful to understand the spiritual principles that govern our level of abundance. 

Once we know those principles, we can work effectively within them to attract abundance to us.

"If you're prosperous in soul, you'll be prosperous in whole."
-- Mark Victor Hansen

Self actualisation

"Every human action, whether it has become positive or negative, must depend on motivation."
-- Dalai Lama

Monitoring what motivates me has helped me see how I am growing. 
I do things for different reasons now than I did 10 years ago. 
As we pay ongoing attention to our motives, we can see how both our conscious and unconscious attitudes are changing.

Here are some ways that our motives can shift with rising consciousness:
  • I desire
  • I want to collect things
  • I want to know
  • I want to serve
  • I want to be
What are your motives as you participate in life?

"There are three kinds of people and three kinds of richness:
  • people who want to have, to collect
  • people who want action, work and labor
  • people who want to be
"The real richness is in be-ness. People can take all that you have, all that you collected. People can stop your labor, or an accident can stop you. When you are, you never lose what you are."
-- Torkom Saraydarian

"You are what you think. You are what you go for. You are what you do!"
-- Bob Richards

"A good intention clothes itself with power."
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our process is clear. First 'know yourself' - your personality and direction in life. Then 'create a plan'. Next 'heal yourself and what holds you back. Then you can expand and 'grow yourself'

2017 focus

1. Block Distractions

When you sit down to work, don’t play.

Work from an environment conducive to focus. Remove all distracting stimuli .

Disable email notifications.

Use an app like SelfControl to block out distracting sites.

Neil has his assistant lock his phone away when he gets to work.

You should too.

2. Stay Calm (and healthy)

Plenty of research our there concludes that staying calm is the key to achieving clarity and making important decisions.

Stress lowers our immune system and has a negative effect on the prefrontal cortex --- the part of the brain controls our ability to be rational.

Basically – stress makes you behave irrationally, perform at lower levels, and make bad decisions.

This is why nearly every top performer has some kind of meditation ritual…

3. Keep Your Goals In Mind

With every decision you make, think about the big picture and your five-year plan

Thinking about your long term goals and future puts meaning behind everything decision you make now, in the present.

Just ask yourself:

Where is this action leading?

Is it taking me closer to my vision?

Or am I “reacting” out of fear or distraction?

Get clarity + take action
