Special Announcement

Special AnnouncementCan you believe it? We’re in the final month of the year… with less than 30 days to go until 2014 is upon us it’s time to start thinking ahead and focusing on the bigger goals and plans for next year.

Today, I’ve got a special announcement for you that is going to rock your world. It’s something that I know is going to propel you into 2014 with success like you’ve never had before.

But before I get into that, I want to recap on some points from last week’s survey.


The lack of doing passionate things

What I found in last week’s survey quite surprised me.

There was a strong theme of people not doing the things that they are passionate about on a regular basis. For some, this included the work that they do, for others, it could have been the hobby or side interest that they want to pursue more of.

The key thing is that this is all within your ability to change.

There was a key link between the lack of time and being able to do the things you love. However, I would argue that this is simply an outcome of where your priorities and your values lie. If you prioritised your passion, you would be doing that passion compared with doing something you do not love.

There is always time for doing things you are passionate about. It’s about choosing how you spend your time.

What I have lined up for you is something that will enable you to understand exactly where your current priorities lie and help you to prioritise the things that matter most to you in your life so you can start to make a difference and earn an income from doing what you love.

More on that below! 🙂


The lack of focus, discipline and commitment with goals

When I asked the question “what do you think you will need to double your success within the next 12 months?” the number one response was focus.

Not only that, but #2 was motivation, #3 was passion and #4 was support.

When it comes to the goals that you set yourself in life, having all 4 of these elements is absolutely crucial to success.

When you set New Year resolutions or goals for 2014, are you going to stay focused on them? Are they going to motivate you? Do you feel passion towards achieving them and do you have support in reaching your goals?

These are all questions that you need to ask yourself.

The trouble is, most people set goals or New Year resolutions that aren’t actually that important to them… they think it’s important to them because it’s what society expects of them. For example, losing weight is a common New Year resolution. However, for some, losing weight is not nearly as important as spending time out with friends at restaurants or relaxing by the beach as opposed to going to the gym. If your goal is aligned to a lower value of yours, you will always find it harder to stay committed and focused on achieving your goal.

In saying that, when you do set goals that are aligned to your highest values you become unstoppable.

Well, you’re in luck! What I’m about to announce to you is the one thing you need to ensure you stay focused, motivated, have the passion and the support needed in reaching your goals.

Are you ready to make 2014 your best year yet?

Let’s get it started…

I’m seriously excited to be able to announce this to you today!

This is something that has been on my mind for a while now and the recent survey results absolutely cemented that this is something that needs to be done for you, right now. And what better time than to tee it up with the launch of the New Year to ensure that 2014 is your best year yet!

Launch Your Life Academy


What is the Launch Your Life Academy?

The Launch Your Life Academy will be limited to a number of passionate people looking to create their best life, pursue their passions and achieve success.

    The lack of doing passionate things, could very well sum up so many reasons why we do (or don’t do) certain things everyday. Passion is at a premium these days… but it sure doesn’t have to be. Great post + I really like your site too//.

    1. Completely agree, Robb.

      The biggest reason (generally) why passion is at a premium is because of the huge demands workplaces are now putting on staff, increasing workload, increasing hours and leaving less time to do what you love.

      I still believe it all comes down to a choice… every one will ALWAYS have the ability to choose where they work and how they spend their time. Easier said than done, I know, but the choice is always there.
