Why “how-to” doesn’t put food on the table ! He’s bought a few courses, yet he’s just watching others doing it and getting all the results…
There’s a big crowd of people online called Sedated Success Spectators. They have the tendency to Buy. To watch others. And to do nothing themselves… Searching high and dry for the perfect “HOW-TO” miracle that’ll hand them the result they’re after.
The reality of WHAT is: you never lack the how-to. Most are lacking the ACTIVE, functional WANT-TO. Achievement is about movement, not rumination.
A boy doesn’t want to clean his room. You wouldn’t give him a How To Clean Your Room manual. The problem is the WANT-TO.
If someone came up to you and said they’d give you $1 million if you’d add 100 people to your email list in the next 30 days… Or if you’d put up one FB Ad to drive leads to your website… Or if you’d create an irresistible offer and tell at least 25 people about it… Think you could do it? For a million bucks?
I think we’d all find a way, right?
So it’s all about want-to. Do we want it bad enough? Will we CHOOSE to take action? Or will we choose to remain on the sidelines? It always boils down to the choices we make, and the actions we can take.
Asking yourself that million-dollar question whenever you’re stuck on doing something can REALLY help put things into perspective! Either I choose to get it done. Or I choose not to. And it’s these choices that puts us in the exact spot we’re currently at in our lives.
We choose. We decide. Isn’t life grand?
Not sure if you’d be open to a system that can bring you in steady paychecks up to $1k to $10K and higher?
It’s already paid out millions in commissions to teachers, retirees, students, folks from all walks of life. So it WORKS and works WELL. But you’ll have to CHOOSE whether to invest, go through the system, and let it work for you or not…
As always, the ball’s in your court! Do not delay any longer…. Act Now !
‘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 Companiesproduction 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.

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.
If you want to read the story of how a young man went from broke farm boy to running a $100 million Internet company in five years, then you need to get your own copy of Limitless. The book will show you:
How to create a substantial income in your spare time working from home
Why you don’t need to create or ship products, deal with customers, setup websites, hire staff, or start merchant accounts
You’ll learn how to apply The HTAM Method even if you have ZERO experience online and have never owned a business
Specific examples of people from their teens to their 80s who have made money with this
Why this is “borderless” and “ageless”
For a limited time, you can get the book for free! All Matt is asking for is you to cover the shipping cost of the book to your door. This free book offer is good between now and May 30th. After then, you can buy it at Amazon or your local book store. However, why pay for it when you can get your own copy for free? I got my copy.
“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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”

Grant Dodwell’s Australian National Theatre Live brings Emerald City into cinemas.
Recently on my Gypsy Traveller Tour of Eastern Australia, I had the good fortune to be invited to the screening of Grant Dodwell’s Australian National Theatre Live production of ‘Emerald City’ in Nambour, Queensland.
Emerald City is a 1987 play by Australian playwright David Williamson, a satire about two entertainment industries: film and publishing.
“This very 1980’s social comedy — about a successful writer who moves from rainy, serious Melbourne to sunny, hedonistic Sydney and falls in love with the tantalizing appeal of a house by the water — still works.”
The Australian National Theatre Live ‘ANT’ is bringing the ‘Live’ theatre experience to a number of areas in Australia that may not have ready access to live plays at the major theatre companies.
The majority of these theatre companies are capital city based and with the vast distances that occur in Australia, ANT saw an opportunity to provide the next best thing to an actual live performance. That is to film a live performance in such a way that the audience can absorb the inclusive ambiance that live theatre creates. In other words you feel that you are part of the play and that you are actually an integral component of the ‘set’ and not simply seated as an observer.
Having experienced ‘live theatre’ on many occasions I can honestly say that this concept works! Well done Grant and the team! I wish you all every success.
So do yourself a favour, if you have the opportunity ensue that you see the Australian National Theatre Live’s film production of the Aussie classic play ‘Emerald City’ by playwright David Williamson.
My boss tried to kill me (and what I did to him next)
True story: Back in 2007, I was flying a routine logistics mission with my commanding officer who, like me, was a combat-decorated and very seasoned aviator.
The mission was simple: fly from sunny San Diego to Fresno, California.
When we took off out of San Diego, it was the typical postcard weather: sunny, light breeze off the ocean, gorgeous.
When we approached Fresno an hour later…dense fog. For miles. And it was our turn to land.
My commanding officer (“Skipper” as we called him) was flying the approach while I sat in the right seat and backed him up by placing my hands gently on the controls.
As we descended, we plunged straight into the dense fog and entered the disorienting world of instrument flight; the Skipper was laser focused on the instruments as I kept a watchful eye out the window for the moment we broke through the fog.
And then, it happened. The most terrifying moment of my entire flight career.
I felt the Skipper pull a little too much power, and the aircraft sank at an alarming rate of decent. As we fell out of the fog, my heart slammed to a stop as I looked up to see…a tree.
Instinctively, I yelled, “WAVE OFF!” and shoved the throttles full forward. Skipper pulled back on the controls and the airplane roared to the sky…missing the ground by mere feet.
We came within a fraction of a second of slamming into the ground, and leaving behind widows, orphans and a smoking hole in the ground.
There was no time to discuss, not time to negotiate and no time to consider options. We survived a near catastrophe because of a very important behavior: I questioned my boss’s authority.
And yes, he openly encouraged that. That’s what exceptional Leaders do.
Of course, there’s a “right” way and a host of ineffective ways to do it. And I discuss this in-depth on today’s episode of The High-Altitude Mentorship Show™ podcast:
Look, this is an important trait for High-Performers, especially in today’s “sheeple” society, where most people blindly follow celebrities, politicians and self-appointed “experts”.
Just because the “gurus” and “thought leaders” are pumping others full of sentiment and “follow your bliss” propaganda doesn’t mean you have eat what they’re shoveling.
Think critically. Wake up. Keep your head on a swivel. And question these “experts” always.
Including (and especially) me.
It may never come down to a life-and-death decision, but questioning authority will at the very least keep you from falling asleep at the wheel, blindly following flimsy rhetoric and prevent you from creating a “smoking hole” in the ground of your business, career or life.
You have my permission to question authority (not that you needed it). Now we’ll see what you do with it.

The economy has changed forever.
The days of working for a company for 35 years and retiring with a pension are over.
For some, this is scary.
For others, it’s exciting.
It all depends on your viewpoint.
You see, every major “shift” in our economy presents new opportunities to profit.
Did you know? …
More millionaires were created in the Great Depression than any other time in American history because it was an ideal time to start a new business.
Real estate was cheap and assets could be bought at fire sale prices.
Today, our world economy has shifted again … this time as a result of the Internet and globalization.
Those who see this can become millionaires just like those who saw opportunity in the Great Depression.
I first noticed this shift 7 years ago, but I didn’t know how to profit from it … yet.
I spent the next 2 years working long hours (and spending everything I had) but I finally broke through and “cracked the code.”
It was the beginning of my “HTAM Method” that would go on to help generate over $100 million in the next 5 years.
Since then, I’ve shared this idea with thousands of people all over the world who have made a combined total of over $51 million with it.
And after 5 years, I’m finally ready to put it all down in a book called …
Founder of MOBE

Yes, this is about money. But it’s also about freedom … personal freedom.
Your copy of Limitless is free.
So are the audio recordings, the first 2 chapters, and the HTAM Quickstart Training.
All I ask is that you cover a small shipping & handling fee of $9.95 (slightly higher postage outside USA).
A paltry sum…
Considering that you can make $1000s from just ONE lesson in one chapter in Limitless… this is a STEAL.
There’s just one catch…
I may decide to start charging for this book at anytime, so act now to get this for FREE while you still can.

” Growing up on a farm in the Australian outback, he learned the value of hard work at a young age, and was exposed to what went into building a business – and the idea that there were no hand-outs in life.
By the time he was in college, he had already started dozens of small businesses – from selling Kangaroo furs, to farming marron, to mowing lawns, he was willing to try anything!
During those late college years, he came across a home business opportunity on the internet.
Knowing nothing about online marketing, he became obsessed with figuring it out… but 9 months later, with over $40,000 invested and having dropped out of college, had still not made a single sale.
He kept persisting, and, slowly results started to show up.
In mid-2011, Matt created ‘MOBE’as the solution to the biggest problems the industry was facing. The company and community has continued to grow ever since.
Now an 8-figure / year business with over 60 staff, and over 10,000 active partners, the company puts on live masterminds all around the world for serious entrepreneurs.
Over 370,000 entrepreneurs subscribe to the MOBE list and have benefited from MOBE’straining and systems.”
