Goals & Visualisation
I am going to cover my ideal day & my Goals & Visualisation as I was instructed to do so by my Six Figure Mentors. I awake naturally well rested at 6ish. we're staying in a luxurious coastal private villa in Indonesia, surrounded by thick tropical gardens. My wife Anna, & our two daughters Mikayla and Keisha are still asleep. I venture to the roof which is well elevated above the breaking surf below. I spend 45 minutes stretching and doing yoga. The room is open aired, & spoilt by 365 degree views of mountains in the distance, waterfalls and lush jungle with walling crystal clear waves consistently roll in below me. I end this session with 10 minutes of meditation and visualisation.
I head downstairs and meander from the elevated villa through lush manicured gardens towards the stand alone gym at the rear of the one acre property. I slide open concertina wooden doors to the beach in front & workout for 45 minutes. A quick dip in the ocean cools me down and gets me invigorated for the day ahead. Then back up to the villa for a shower, I sneak into our bed and enjoy 20 mins of motivational audio to get in the right mindset for the day. The family are starting to wake up so we venture out to the verandah & enjoy cooked breakfast and fresh fruit with friendly service on hand. After breakfast I spend the next 30 minutes checking emails and responding to anything important. The rest of the morning we spend quality time at the villa as a family enjoying games, reading and listening to music. Around 12pm a healthy picky style lunch is bought out. Once we finish I head down to the garage and start up my Indian Scout 1133cc Cruiser style motorcycle. I ride through the balmy air to a beach near by and meet the media team to put together content. We work on still images and audio visual content & we have fun with it. We shoot a Facebook live and answer questions focusing on giving value and keeping it light yet honest. At the end we fly a drone and get some location shots to use at other times as well, which I love the creative side of.
After a couple of hours I ride back to the villa then as a family we go out shopping and enjoy an ice cream. Once back at the villa I jump online for an hour and call our 'Not For Profit Foundation' Manager to see how our various charityvprojects are progressing, before wrapping up the arvo with a sunset surf. I shower in our private outdoor ensuite then put on fresh clothes made of light fabric. Anna & I sit together on the verandah and enjoy a drink and cheeses for about 30 mins.
Anna, Kayla, Keisha and I sit down to a seafood dinner with like minded friends we host at the villa. We enjoy each other's company & all have a good laugh. The guests leave at a reasonable hour. Anna & I finish the evening talking and connecting. We meditate together then enjoy intimacy before retiring and ending my ideal day.
Define your work ethic?
I can not fault my work ethic. I am now in my late 30's and have spent my working life jumping from job to job, looking for greener pastures. I have worked as a 'Cray/Lobster fishing Deckie' working 7 days a week for 7 months, starting at 5am. I have done night shift packing bricks into a jig on an assembly line at a fast pace. Worked for a month on week off 'swing' in roof spaces banging ducting air conditioning together in a climate that is 40c plus every single day wearing full length safety clothing and breathing masks. I fixed residential ceilings and installed itchy batt insulation for years. Mixed mud for plasterers and eventually plastered walls myself, both render and white walling. I have worked as a real estate investment coach (Relationship Mgr) phoning leads when not in workshops/meetings with clients. Worked 60 hour weeks as a used car salesman. Worked on the mines (12h hour days) again in remote 40c + temperatures as a Reverse Circulation Drillers Offsider.
If it is a shitty testing job, I have done it. I am not afraid of hard work. My downfall has been searching for the golden bullet. I have worked online for the past 12 months and had little success. One positive is I am now aware I can find a solution and learn anything despite not being trained in using technology. I am consistent. Even when on holidays I still work on having a presence online. I have no doubt at all that I have the work ethic needed to persevere and take massive action.
What is your WHY? What drives & motivates you?
My why is family. They have never whinged or expressed frustration with doing it tough. Although I have worked my ass off over the years we have only ever 'just got through' There is always more month at the end of the money. A massive driver for me is being able to take the family out without having to add up the cost as we go, in case we 'go over' what we have budgeted for the night. Also being able to take my lovely fiance out for say a seafood dinner and not share a meal because we love that style of food but need to watch the pennies. Having security to not stress if we have an issue with our car or a major unexpected bill come in that we are able to sort it without shuffling funds or waiting for 2 weeks until our next payday. Another driver is not building someone else's dreams, but putting time and effort into our future. When working as a Relationship Manager with property investors we would delve into their goals and use scare tactics to secure a commitment from them in regards to investing. We would make them aware of the fact that most of us aren't prepared for an illness or loss of job. Or the fact that most us have enough super to live the life we desire for about 6-8 years, not the 25+ we may last. When leveraged to the hilt with no back up plan, we are a slave to 'The Man'. I will have the peace of mind that if I am made redundant or if a family member needs my care I am able to support myself and family for a long long time. I strive to have a diverse range of residual/passive income. I will invest in property for both income and long term growth. One driver is to acquire commercial properties with nice long secure leases being paid. My fiance started a community based mobile App to warn fellow water users of sharks or closed beaches. I will start other projects such as this. Where the work is put in and once produced has the ability to feed income well after completion. Time freedom is probably the main driver for marketers and I am no different. To have the geographical freedom to work from ANYWHERE is something constantly on my mind. Life is very short, I feel strongly about being in a region of the world warm and appealing to enjoying the outdoors daily. whether it be exercising, playing sport, surfing, dining outdoors on a balmy night or any number of things. Even little things like having a private ensuite situated outdoors is an experience that has stayed with me since experiencing it at a flash hotel on the Gilli Islands in Indonesia. I will start a foundation or legacy to help the under privileged, with a focus on children. I feel strongly that far too many kids are living a hell on earth. Over 80,000 children go missing every year in India alone.
I do not want to struggle my life away, I want the life I truly believe my family and I deserve.
Starting any business has its risks. As you start your business, what best describes your frame of mind/mindset? Answering this will require complete transparency.
Multiple Choice Answer; Commitment- Pledging and obligating myself- Engaging my efforts long enough to see results.
I have fumbled about online for over 12 months now. I realise the importance of having guidance in most areas of our lives. Especially in starting an online business. I liken it to a young man or woman saying they will become a skilled electrician then NOT becoming an apprentice, but simply trying to 'work it out' themselves. This path would be ludicrous and to expect to gain the skills needed by not having guidance would be virtually impossible, and if it did happen I would guess it would take 100 times as long. I have chosen commitment because the desire to live a laptop lifestyle has consumed my being, it is something I think about a majority of my time awake, and perhaps asleep. I will not have it any other way. I will fire my boss within 18 months and my majority of income and focus will be on SFM/DEA's systems.
My Ideal Week.
Would entail a mix of producing daily vlogs and once during that week a substantial piece of video content that's part of a series 90 mins long and full of value. My assistant would do dictation for my written blogs perhaps 4 days a week upload and manage for me. I will meet with my team once a week & keep it fun and lively.
I will liaise with my investment broker about how our properties are performing and what investments are available. I will have contact with a project manager curating our charity projects both in remote Australia & overseas. Anna the kids and I will fly to Sydney for her latest movie premiere. We will stay 2 nights in a 5 star hotel overlooking Sydney Harbour with friendly staff available 24/7. We will charter a staffed yacht to cruise around the harbour. Also enjoy an afternoon shopping and exploring the city.
As a surprise for the family instead of an Uber to the airport to fly home the Concierge leads us up to the roof of the hotel. A large helicopter is waiting for us. We all chuckle with excitement and disbelief as the motors fire up & I feel a sense of major gratitude knowing the family are about to experience something most people would not is simply mind blowing. We enjoy flying low and at height over the city and beaches of Sydney for over an hour before heading to the airport once we are there we go through a private customs within the helicopter company. Then the family & I jump in a chartered vehicle which chauffeurs us to the flight.
My week is scheduled into 2/3 leisure 1/3 business, most is automated. The tasks that I am active in I thoroughly enjoy.
I am physically active 6 days a week and thoroughly enjoy a variety of fresh foods prepared on the spot and in bulk for convenience. Family time will dominate my leisure time.
