Easy Button VS. Reality Button

Easy Button VS. Reality Button

 Hello,

 I have to tell you honestly: I’d prefer sticking to what works in getting to $10K plus  months…

 Ever remodeled a room in your house? Like the kitchen for example? It usually gets messy,  dusty, downright chaotic in the early stages of the remodel, doesn’t it?

 Yet, we EXPECT THAT to happen. We know it’s a part of the process. We willingly signed up  for this…

 After weeks or months of slapping up paint samples on the walls, adding in counters and  cabinets and the like. Then… You stand back, looking at your masterpiece.

 It may even draw you to tears as you’re looking at the finished product. It was aaaaaaaall  worth it.

 True, it would’ve been nice to just hit an EASY BUTTON, and – wham bam! … The kitchen  remodel is complete. Doesn’t happen like that, does it?

 Stuff happens. Unexpected things creep up. That’s reality. And I don’t know about you, but  I like to deal with REALITY.

 Now, many people hop online and want an easy button for every piece of getting an  amazing business like this up and off the ground. I get it. Easy always, sounds awesome.  Yet it’s not REALITY. Makes sense?

 But…

 If you can come into this game viewing it like a Kitchen Remodel… that you KNOW can get  messy from time to time. And you know it’s 100% worth it because of the end result you’re  after.

 What the “remodel” will look and feel like to you when you’re seeing those results flowing  into your life?

 Then… you can begin.

 You’ll start. You’ll adjust when you need to. Because it’s WORTH IT. Because you signed up  for this. I’m feeling you’re the type of person that can handle the truth and doesn’t mind a  little messy to get to a lot of awesome.

 I can’t 100% say how easy or hard this will be for you… But only having to focus on #1  thing sure makes things a lot easier and simpler to me…

 Interested? ===> YES! Show me the details!

It’s time to get stuff done!

It’s time to get stuff done!

It’s time to get things done! Sharing the thoughts of my friend Catriona Pollard, something that I know we can all relate to!…  Michael
Laptop-Lifestyle Michael-Thornley

 

“I have been in several situations lately where I have been asked how I manage to get so much done.

The truth is there was a time a few weeks back where I came into the office and said to my most trusted team member that I wasn’t coping. I had said yes to too many things – speaking gigs, gallery openings, exhibitions, mentoring, business operations tasks, writing, organising a trip overseas… and I could go on and on.

I was dealing with so much stress that I was waking up at 3am every morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. Which was good in one way as it meant I had more time to get stuff done. But obviously, not healthy.

Lists are my saviour

Jo, who has worked with me for a long time and knows how my brain works, said “Let me get my notepad”. She sat with me and I told her everything I had to do. Three pages of items later, she put them in order, and even typed up an action plan (similar to how we do client work).

I slept through to 5am that night…because I had some order to the chaos and a plan of attack. And you know what…I’ve nearly ticked everything off my list! Such a great feeling.

 

Ditch faffing

You know faffing…taking ages to make a decision or finish things off. I enjoy being highly focused, and often set myself false deadlines to eliminate faffing. Although, I find myself faffing about certain things…my inbox is currently sitting at 3,792 unread emails.

 

Use your time wisely

My business is run with military precision. We have procedures for everything. It’s structured in a way so time isn’t wasted. Also I maximise my effort and time. For example, all of the articles I write aren’t just used once in an email to you. They are used multiple times across every social media platform, sent to journalists, uploaded to news sites and then they are used in an ongoing basis as evergreen blog content.

I like to be busy.

I’m happier when I’m doing and achieving stuff. But I also need to have downtime, whether that’s catching up with the people that make me feel good, spending the afternoon at the day spa or walking in the bush. My mantra during these times is be still and let the beauty emerge.

Here’s to seeing you in the spotlight.”

Personal income leveled out in 2015, 2016… 2017?

Personal income leveled out in 2015, 2016… 2017? 

Personal income. This raises the income thermostat, STAT!

I think the majority of the masses deal with this… If you’re ACCLIMATED to living paycheck to paycheck, then no matter how much you make, you will keep living paycheck to paycheck. If you’re income is under $77K a year, it’ll hover around that income mark on average. If you’re accustomed to having $5k in savings, you’ll probably keep about just that in your savings account…

You ever experienced this?

If we want to INCREASE our INCOME, we need to set the income thermostat higher to where our ideal income is our new standard. Making sense?

Here’s what will help…

Wealth is an ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. NOT an acquirement.

It’s an AWARENESS that you can fill-up on DAILY. Do you not have a wealth, or abundance, or MORE Oxygen than you need right now?Is there not a wealth or abundance of SUNLIGHT at your disposal every day? See…

It’s all about this awareness of the wealth all around you, and recognizing that wealth doesn’t equal money, and money doesn’t equal wealth!

The big AHA in today’s note from all this? Wealth Is Not A By-Product Of Money. Money Is A By-Product Of Wealth.

Once you truly GET this, and you see that income isn’t in any way connected to your IDETITY, then the goal of actually producing ANY INCOME you DESIRE becomes a game. Fun. Yes… A GAME! YES, FUN!

Different from the way most people are living, huh?

And there’s no more FUN way to play this game than to see BIG SALES popping in to your accounts every week.

Not sure if this is for you or not?

Some are having fun, rolling in an average of up to $5k to $10K months. Others are having a blast bringing in up to $100K a month…

What’s your target? Ready for some fun?

===> Yes! I’m ready to take my current wealth around me and have FUN rolling in the income I DESIRE RIGHT NOW!

Cloc Musical Theatre Review – Les Miserables

 Cloc Musical Theatre Review

‘Cloc Musical Theatre’ Production of Les Miserables-
A Review by Michael E Thornley

My partner Kim and I had the pleasure of attending the Cloc Theatre Companies production of Les Miserables on 23rd May 2017.

It was in fact my first time at seeing Les Miserable live in a theatre production. And I must say that my introduction to Musical Theatre’s adaptation of Victor Hugo’s historical novel ‘Les Miserables’ by the Cloc Musical Theatre was a delight to all my senses.

It is set in early 19th Century France … the story of  Jean Valjean, a French peasant and his quest for redemption after serving nineteen years in jail for having stolen a loaf of bread for his sister’s starving child.

Valjean then decides to break his parole and start his life again after a kindly bishop inspires him by a tremendous act of mercy and belief in him. Yet he is relentlessly tracked down by a police inspector named Javert.

Along the way, Valjean and a variety of characters are swept into yet another Revolutionary period in France, where a group of young idealists make their last stand at a street barricade.

Whilst the Cloc theatre Company may be classified as a ‘Non Professional ‘ Musical Company, they attract many gifted and talented performers and production staff. And I share them all with you here.

Thus I would personally recommend that you do yourself the honour of experiencing a live production of ‘Les Miserables‘ wherever you may be situated around the world.

So for those of you living in Melbourne, Victoria Australia, make a booking NOW for ‘any’ production presented by the Cloc Musical Theatre Company! Their venue, the National Theatre in St.Kilda simply adds its charm to the ambiance of the performances.

I look forward to attending another production by the Cloc Theatre Company in the very near future.

$1000 paydays can be easy or hard… (which will you pick?)

$1000 paydays can be easy or hard… (which will you pick?) 

This provides income breakthroughs!

  Hi
If you’ve been online searching for opportunities, trying a few things out… And if it’s been   longer than 30-60 days…

  You could begin to feel like this business is like pushing a square 1-ton stone uphill…

  …Blindfolded.

  …On a rainy day.

  …Feet slipping every step.

You feeling me?

  Here’s a simple yet powerful Q I’d love for you to explore: Why Not Start A Different      Business Model That’s Like Pushing A Round Tire Downhill?! 

  The uphill slog was trying to eke out $300 and up paydays with low $7 to
$97 commission sales…

  700 bucks a month or so isn’t BAD. Yet it’s not “freedom money”. Especially when it’s not    consistent income I can bank on. Plus I had the added stress of having the entire funnel    ALL ON ME to set-up and run and provide support and maintenance over…

  Once I discovered how to generate up to $1k, $5k, $10k commissions,    WITHOUT having to do too much, that changed the entire game! Simple shifts like this,  once made, can make all the difference between struggle and the much EASIER path to  success.

 Ready to trade in the uphill push for another path?

 ===> Yes! I’m ready to shift to high ticket commissions and take the easier path to life  changing commissions…

 PS. Once you’re through the 21 Steps, you’ll see how easy and fun this lucrative  business model can be for you! Sure, you still have to “push” even downhill to make this  work, but it’s soooo much easier than trying to grind uphill. 😊

Why Intelligent People Can’t find Happiness

Why Intelligent People Can’t find Happiness

Posted by |

I am sharing the following post from the Minds Journal Editorial. I can really associate  with what is said and knew I was brilliant! 😉 hahaha

Well if we can’t laugh at ourselves and all that! So enjoy the article and I am sure you too will see how ‘Intelligent’ you are too 😉

Cheers,

“Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.” -Ernest Hemimgway

“The presence of a faithful and loving partner, a great family life and a successful career may not be enough to prevent an intelligent soul to feel grief and melancholy.

Here are six most likely reasons why happiness seems to elude highly intelligent people:

  1. They are the victim of over analysis

Many people with high level of intelligence lean towards over-thinking and keep analyzing everything that occurs in their life, their surroundings and beyond. Too much thinking can be exhausting at times, especially when your thoughts lead you to conclusions which vex and frustrate you. They weigh you down, but you can’t help but think and think, no matter how draining the experience is.

Their ability to analyze things is great. But, it is also true that we don’t need to pay attention to everything, and crowd our minds with unsavory thoughts. ‘Ignorance is bliss,’ this saying holds good for people like you who can see right through anybody and identify their true motives. Undoubtedly, the world seems a disappointing place occupied by wrong people. Not to mention the feelings that affect you upon the reflection on philosophical problems, global affairs and the eternal questions of life that have no answers. If you learn to ignore, you can feel lighthearted, cheerful and happy.

 

  1. They want to match everything with their high standards

People with high IQ are always sure of what they want and anything less than their expectations fail to satisfy them, and this makes it more difficult for them to be happy. This stands true for everything, whether it is career, relationships or anything else that matters in life.

It’s a fact of life that we never get all what we want. But, this practical knowledge is not present in those who have brilliant theoretical minds. They have little practical intelligence and maintain idealistic views of the world that really doesn’t help them in coping with the ways of the world. So, when they find the reality is contrary to their expectations, they feel greatly disappointed.

  1. Intelligent people judge themselves too hard

One of the reasons of unhappiness also crops from their tendency to be extremely hard on themselves. It is not only about their successes and failures, but everything that is about them. Their deep thinking nature minutely analyses their behavior and actions and compares them against highest standards. Even though it is done unintentionally, this tendency offers them enough reason to blame themselves for no reason.

 An act committed years ago can suddenly haunt their mind and remind them how they        had failed to do things rightly. This disturbs their mind and messes up their mood. After        that, they can hardly spend the day cheerfully or manage a relaxing sleep at night.          These types of flashbacks into past mistakes are frequent in intelligent people. Guilt and    discontent fill their mind. These negative emotions are enough to erase happiness from one’s life.

 

  1. They aim for bigger things

    They cannot be satisfied with what they have in life because their high IQ gives them the power to imagine bigger things. And they are always looking for a bigger purpose, a meaning and a pattern. Some of them are driven too far away by their intense imagination, making it impossible for them to enjoy the good things they have in their life. Ordinary life is too boring for them and that is why they search for exceptionalism, which of course doesn’t exist in reality.

    Do you think this planet is not your real abode or you should live in a different era? It is nothing new about intelligent, deep thinking individuals. With such thoughts swarming your mind, you can hardly hope to be happy when you cannot accept the world and even the time you are living in.

  2.  No one to appreciate them or have a meaningful conversation

    We all yearn to be truly understood, but intelligent people can hardly find someone who can understand them. When we have understanding people around us, half of the stress in our lives ceases to exist. It is very comforting to have a meaningful conversation with a like-minded person. They understand your views and ideas on everything spanning from personal life, philosophy, to global affairs and other complex questions. Most intelligent people feel misunderstood and lonely, as usually no one appreciates the depth with which they can see and analyze things.

    Science has proved that smart people don’t need to socialize as much as the people with average IQ, to be happy. Nevertheless, smart people feel the need to meet people, interact and have an enjoyable conversation. They are more interested in talking about meaningful and fascinating things rather than talk on subjects like food, weather or weekend plans. The truth is, it is difficult to come by a person who can indulge in a deep conversation. This is the result of the materialist and consumerist society we live in.

     

    1. Smart people often develop psychological issues.

    Many studies have found a connection between highly intelligent minds and psychiatric disorders like bipolar disorders and social anxiety. Is it possible that these disorders are side effect of a brilliant mind? This cannot be confirmed as there are so many hidden mysteries of human mind and science, yet to be revealed.

    It is not that all intelligent people suffer from severe mental disorders. But even the ones who don’t, are susceptible to existential depression which usually results from over-thinking. If you keep on thinking and analyzing everything deeply, there comes a time when you start thinking about life and death. Your mind begins to search for the meaning of your existence and that is when you begin to re-evaluate your own life. This saddens you, but for no apparent reason.”

McDonalds – Mr Kroc’s wisdom

Hey,

When Ray Kroc started building the McDonald’s empire in 1956, he never thought of himself as being in the hamburger business.

To him, it was not the hamburgers which were his product; it was the systems he created that would sell
the hamburgers.

These systems (or what you might call the ‘business blueprint’) consisted of detailed procedures, duplicatable processes, and
accompanying training that made running the McDonalds business as easy as possible.

That doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed success with a McDonalds franchise, but it does mean you have a much higher likelihood of
succeeding than if you try to start a hamburger business yourself from scratch.

Today, if you want to buy a McDonalds you’re looking at an investment of close to $1m or more, depending on where it’s located.

And so far, a lot of people have bought in.

Did you know there’s over 30,000 McDonalds outlets around the world today? (at close to $1m each, you do the math on that)

Many are in America, but they’re also all over Asia, Europe, Australia…

In fact, the famous Golden arches logo is more recognized across the planet than the symbol of christ!

When you think about it, McDonalds as a company are in the high-ticket sales business.

Each time they sell a unit, they’re bringing in close to 7 figures.

In the online marketing world, you can also be in the high-ticket sales business.

And you should be too.

It’s far easier to find a few high-paying customers to create an annual 6 figure per year income, than trying to sell dirt cheap products for
$10 or less to the masses.

Personally, I’d rather make $10,000 from making one sale online, instead of trying to find 1,000 people who will pay $10 for an ebook for the same amount of money.

Now is it harder to get a $10,000 sale than a $10 sale?

Of course it is.

But is it 1,000 times harder?

Not even close.

As long as you have the right system and training in place, getting paid up to $10,000 on each deal you do is very doable.

And if you’d like to learn how, watch this short video:

Once you get started, you’ll be assigned your own personal coach who’ll show you everything you need to know.
