Whatever you're going through right now is part of YOUR GLORIOUS STORY, and it serves a very important purpose.

Your EPIC STRUGGLE, whatever it might be for you, was given to you for a reason. And it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to OVERCOME YOUR STRUGGLE, and then show others how to do the same.

 

When I realized that ... I made some massive shifts.

 

I felt as if I was on some crusade to PROVE that what I was wanting to do, COULD BE DONE!

 

And all I was ever trying to do was REPLACE MY INCOME FROM MY JOB ... 

... from home ...

... from my laptop.

 

That's all ... nothing too crazy!

 

What I didn't realize was the amount of sh!t I would go through to do that.

 

I didn't realize I'd need to deal with mindset issues ...

... marital issues ...

... family issues ...

... friend issues.

 

Part of me thought this would be a cake walk.

 

But it wasn't.

 

I had to go through the sh!t to get to the sugar!

 

But here's the empowering thing.

 

Because I DID, others feel empowered to do the same.

 

Check out Denise Bond for example.

Her and her husband have embarked on an EPIC JOURNEY to turn their lives around in 365 days, and they're documenting every day by video.

 

Now, I didn't inspire Denise to do this. She was already on the path when she found me.

 

What I did do however, is PROVE that it CAN be done.

 

Therefore, if I can do it, so can she.

 

And THAT my friends is who your story is for.

 

It's for every brave soul who dares to follow in your footsteps.

 

THAT's who you're doing this for.

 

YES! It's for your family!
YES! It's for your freedom!


But ULTIMATELY, it's for everyone YOU INSPIRED, because you made it!

 

So never forget that ...

... your story is not your own.

There have been two very distinct moments in my life where I was brutally reminded that money is not my motivator.


FIRST MOMENT:

When I worked as an Art Auctioneer on Cruise Ships, there were years where we made “stupid” money. The type of money that allows you to spend 1,000 Euros on dinner without blinking.

And I’ll never forget one day walking down a long corridor to the auction room, all dolled up to the nine’s, jewelry dripping from everywhere, hair and makeup perfect, looking as if I had it all together …

… but inside feeling as if I was falling apart.

I swear that each foot felt as if it were encased in concrete boots.

And I asked myself, on that long walk down the corridor …

 

“Why am I so MISERABLE???”

 

I was literally empty inside.

Answer: Because I was serving no-one but myself.
 

SECOND MOMENT:

In Empower Network, when we first started out, I believed that when we hit a “MAGIC” milestone in earnings, I would “FEEL” a certain way.

I remember watching our back office like a hawk, just waiting for the moment when I would see a certain number appear.

And I’ll never forget the incredible disappointment I felt …

… when I felt …

… nothing.

Making that magic number meant nothing.

Why?

Because money is not the motivator.

We all get into this industry to make money, yes, I’m not discounting that for one minute.

But when making money is the only motivator …

… guess what?

You’re going to feel empty inside.

Why?

Because you’re serving no-one but yourself.

You wanna know what gets me PUMPED?

Getting PM’s from people who say things like …

… “because of your hangout last week I’m making a commitment to change my life”

And finding out that someone who is a complete introvert has decided to make videos for the first time in his life!

And hearing the sheer thrill of a brand new person making their first $7 online.

 

THAT’S WHAT GETS ME PUMPED!!!

 

So I just want to close on this note ...if you choose to be in this business to genuinely serve others, your cup will runneth over with abundance.

And I’m not talking financial abundance.

That will come as a natural bi-product of serving.

I’m talking of something so much deeper.

I’m talking about a deep sense of purpose that what you’re doing MATTERS.

 

I hope this post brings you some sort of clarity.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this subject in the comments below.
 

HUGS & LOVE,

e!

 

 

 

This post is so insightful I wanted to share it with you ... 

Where Did It Go??

I often find myself sitting and wondering... Where Did It Go?? When did that happen?? And Why did it happen??...

...Got you Thinking, Got you Confused??

Great!! Its means your curious and maybe now this will really resonate and sink in for you...

...I'm talking about our Self Belief.  I'm talking about our Confidence.  I'm talking about our Fearless nature we were ALL born with, but for some reason lost it somewhere along our path we call LIFE...

... Now like I was saying we were all born with an absolute FEARLESS nature. A Drive to want to learn and grow and give everything a go.  Learning how to open our eyes, use our hands, learn to chew and swallow, from lying, to sitting, to up on the kness crawling.  Then came that massive step of getting up off the ground standing on our own two feet, to walking, then running. Once we got to here there was no stopping us...

...So again I ask, Where Did It Go?? We once had no concept of Failure, Boundries were put before us to overcome them.  The only thing we knew was that there was only one answer to life and that was Visualise, Commit to Yourself, Believe it is possible and you can do it, NEVER QUIT!!

Thinking outside the box, pushing yourself to your absolute limit was supported, applauded, praised and thats why we continued to do it and succeed in EVERYTHING we wanted to achieve...

... Dreaming about the future, Playing make believe, Striving for what we really wanted in life was applauded, encouraged and supported...

...But then we grew up.  Judgement, Conservativeness, Main Stream Thinking, Small Minded Mentality started to cloud our perception. The need to Fit In, Fall In Line. We had learnt and taught ourselves all the basics to life. Encouraged to do so on our own so we could do it for ourselves. Build that Self Confidence, that Can Do Attitude. Once we learnt that all of a sudden it was replaced with, Fall in line, Don't stand out, Don't draw attention to yourself, head down, bum up, work hard for the rest of your life and get no where, because thats what you do in a normal society and we must fit in...

...We are then, Five, Ten Fifteen years later, Crummy Job, No Job, Family we can't support, a house we can't afford, no time for anything other than our work, where we are working to make some other persons dreams come true. Working for our money instead of it working for us. Surviving instead of Living...

...So instead of asking Where Did It Go?? Today I want to ask YOU What are YOU going to do to Get It Back??

I challenge you today to look in the mirror and ask yourself, Am I truly Happy?? Is this Really What I Want for My Life?? I challenge you to again Start Dreaming and Start Thinking Outside the Box. Be that Stand Out Original Amazing Person you were Born to Be!!

 

WE WERE BORN TO STAND OUT... 

LIVE YOUR DREAMS...

DRIVE YOUR OWN BUS...

BE YOUR OWN BOSS...

TAKE OWNERSHIP OF YOUR LIFE...

LIVE THE LIFE OF YOUR DREAMS...

Opportunities like this don't come along everyday.  Don't let it pass you by...

I'm offering you the opportunity to change your life...

As I went to bed last night I quickly checked my PM's ... don't know why. Normally I don't. And I saw this message from a team member:

"Have you heard the news?"

Without opening it I knew Amy was gone.

I sat on the edge of my bed and sobbed ... deep heart wrenching sobs from I don't know where.

It's been a long time since I've felt such aching pain ...

... and today I'm simply left with a feeling of numbness and anger. I'm numb because someone who lit up our days will not be around anymore to shine her light ... and I'm angry because she had only just started to step into her power and speak her vision. 

Every single one of you has a calling ...

... something you were put on this earth to do that no-one else can do quite like you. 


Amy had only just started to step into her vision ...

and I'm angry because she was taken too soon. 


Which brings me to the purpose of this post today ...

... what vision do you have that you're putting off stepping into, because of excuses you're making like ...

"It's not the right time ..."
"I don't know enough about my subject ... "
'Who's going to listen to me anyway? ... "
"Who do I think I am to dare to have this vision? ..."

The other day I wrote this on my Facebook wall ... 

STAND UP FOR SOMETHING!

For the love of all things meaningful ... 

... stand up for something you BELIEVE in ... 

...and NEVER stand down from that.

 

If you have a bold vision ... now is the time to speak it into existence.

Don't wait to be perfect.

Don't wait until you know all the answers.

Don't wait until you've figured it all out.

Just start to speak your vision ... and the Universe will start bending to see your vision come to fruition.

Here's Amy's vision ... and I pray that we as a team and as a community will do our bit in seeing her vision come to fruition.

For the love of all things meaningful ...

... whatever vision it is that you have in your heart ...

... start acting on it today.

Start Acting On It Today!

Love and miss you so much already Amy ...

HUGS & LOVE darling ...

... HUGS & LOVE.

 

 

On this very day, the happiest day of our lives ... we had no idea that our Fairy tale life was about to turn into the darkest years of our lives.



It's a funny thing when you say your vows and you hear the words ... 

... "in good times and bad ..." 

... you naively believe that you'll have a few good years first before you have to tackle the bad ones.

Well ... we weren't one of the lucky ones.

We were married in 2008 ... right before the world imploded financially.

We spent the next 3 years madly scrambling trying to make sense of what was happening in our industry.

By 2011 we were at breaking point ... emotionally, mentally ... and now for me, physically.

I developed an auto-immune disease, most probably from the poor nutrition available to me in our work environment, but more probably from stress, fear and uncertainty.

If you know our story you'll know that our breaking point was opening a commission check for $9.38 for 50 hours work that then had to be divided in two. 



Everyone has a breaking point ...

... where they just snap from the pain ...

... where they decide they simply can't take it any longer ...

... where they choose to take matters into their own hands and say something to the effect of ...

"F#%k this Sh!t ... I'm outta here!"

That check was our breaking point.

And we literally said ... 

"F#%k this Sh!t ... I'm outta here!"

Sometimes you have to make a drastic change in your life, get way out of your comfort zone and risk all you have ...

... to get what you really want in life.

I'm not going to tell you that the next two years of our lives were easy ...

... they weren't.

In fact the added stress of changing our lives so dramatically nearly drove us to the divorce courts.

But we hung in there.

And now ...

... six years on ...

... the darkness has cleared ...

... and we live in the light.

We don't have an overly flamboyant lifestyle ...

... but the lifestyle we now live contains one of the most precious commodities we never could have had in our previous life.

We have TIME FREEDOM.

We have the freedom to do ...

... WHAT we want ...

... WHEN we want ...

... with WHO we want.

There's no-one pulling our strings any more.

And if I had to do it all over again ...

... I would.

Because the victory of making it to the other side is so worth the struggle.

So here is my message to you today ...

... no matter what part of the struggle you find yourself in ...

... just know that there are others who have been where you are right now ...

... and they made it.

And they are standing on the other side of where you're at ...

... reaching out ...

... to help you across.

You're not alone.

You're never alone.

Not when you're walking the entrepreneur's journey.

You're never alone.
