Baby Boomers Unite – plan for your future and support each other to ‘Achieve Your Dreams’.

There’s a big difference between making money and accumulating wealth. Said in another way: It’s not what you make, it’s what you keep. And what you do with the money you keep—how you treat it and how much you respect it—makes a world of difference.

Don’t believe it? Consider that nearly 70 percent of lottery winners go broke within seven years, according to the book “Money for Nothing: One Man’s Journey Through the Dark Side of Lottery Millions.”

As an example, a person wins a lottery and blows the winnings on opportunistic friends and family, half-baked investment opportunities and extravagant living. While another, like Elon Musk, sells a business for a nice profit, reinvests the bulk of the proceeds in a new business and, over time, becomes a billionaire.

The same applies to people who earn high salaries. Some retire early and sail the world; others struggle to keep the toys they’ve acquired while stretching to make ends meet. Wealth accumulation isn’t so much about making money; it’s about the attitudes and behaviors people indulge in while acquiring it, as well as the decisions they make when managing it.’

Limitless  ( Free Book ) is a personal account of my journey from a small farm in Australia to the helm of a $100 million company.

In this book, you’ll learn the secret to my success (The HTAM Method), and how other people have leveraged it to earn a documented $51 million to date.

 Within 5 minutes of ordering your physical copy of Limitless, you’ll get instant online access to the first 2 chapters, the audio recordings, and the HTAM Quickstart Training.

 

Dear Friend,
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.

Now

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 …

Limitless MOBE free-book

Best wishes,

Limitless Matt-Lloyd-Signature

Matt Lloyd

Founder of MOBE

P.S. Remember, in this book you’ll learn how to use my HTAM Method to create a substantial income in your spare time. Regular people in over 37 countries have made over $51 million in the last 5 years with this … and you can join them.

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.

Limitless MOBE Free-book

 

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.”

Rhino’s – On the brink of extinction

Rhino-species

                                                       Rhino’s – On the brink of extinction

MORE THAN 5,000 RHINOS HAVE BEEN POACHED IN SOUTH AFRICA SINCE 2010. ONE RHINO IS KILLED EVERY 6 HOURS. RHINOS WILL BE EXTINCT IN THE WILD BY 2024, IF WE DO NOT ACT NOW.

As many of my friends know I have been a conservationist all my life. No not a ‘greeny‘ as such but a realist in that sometimes ‘mankind’ MUST assist in the conservation of all that Mother Earth nurtures.

More often than not is is because of ‘Mankind’ that species are threatened or become extinct.  However we also have the power to try and rectify the atrocities caused by archaic beliefs or simply from greed and some weird ego play these modern day so called sporting  ‘hunters’ have.

Rhino’s (Rhinoceros) the world over have been hunted and poached for their horns or forced to the verge of extinction by increasing demand on their habitats.

I for one support captive breeding in order to save the species and there are many movements that are working hard yet need our support to achieve this.  Withing the Order of the Southern Cross Organisation of which I founded in 2010, we have a Conservation arm- CSO-OSC Conservation of Species  group committed to the education and awareness of ‘mankinds’ effect on all living things.
OSC-CSO                                                       CSO-OSC Conservation of Species
And I personally support the International efforts to create breeding populations of all 5 species and subspecies to assist in the protection of those remaining in the wild.
In addition, I encourage the education of certain traditional cultures surrounding the NON aphrodisiac properties in the keratin of a horn and the reduction of poverty in the  ‘poaching’ communities of Africa.

Traveling Leads to More Sex, Weight Loss, and Feeling Younger, Study Says

Sometimes studies try to tell people what they don’t want to hear for example, oversleeping may kill you, or your excessive reality TV diet is making you more of a narcissist. This is not one of those studies. According to the following UK study traveling benefits people by helping them lose weight, have more sex, and feel younger.

Everyone can agree traveling is a good thing. Next to a feel-good Live Laugh Love craft painting you may have at least once seen this shaming cliche quote: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Forget that quote because traveling isn’t always possible, but if you can travel here’s some of the benefits to look forward to.

According to Uproxx, Expedia surveyed 31 million travelers who’ve been on vacation in the past year. 81 percent of travelers reported feeling better after taking a vacation. Some of the reasons why? People reported traveling helped them lose weight, gain confidence, and have more sex, maybe even in that order.

Vacation means relaxation time, which helps alter your mood. Psychologist Dr. Linda Papadopoulos, who Uproxx reports helped with the study, explains, “You’re free to do as much or as little as you like, which in turn makes you feel more relaxed. This can help reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol…As stress and anxiety decreases, mood increases—bringing many, often unexpected, positive benefits in how we perceive ourselves, motivation and productivity, and our general outlook on life.”

Over one million travelers reported losing weight while traveling. Going out on adventures will do that to a person, especially if it requires more physical activity than a person is accustomed to in their daily lives. Take my friend who just went to California and almost died when she found she had to hike up to the famous Hollywood sign.

“Exposure to a healthy amount of sunshine is also believed to increase the brain’s release of the hormone serotonin,” said Dr. Papadopoulos. “Which is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused.”

Speaking of physical activity, one million of the study’s participants said traveling helped their sex drive.

Happy traveling!

Sort through the Chickens to find the Eagles!

eagle-flying sort-through-chickens-fly-with-eagles” Sort through the Chickens to find the Eagles! Do you want to scratch around like chickens or soar with the Eagles?”

I love this analogy and this is true in life as in business. Many are simply happy and content with living their same old same old routine and that is fine. Whilst others wish to experience more in life and push out and motivate themselves to improve their lives…. that is fine too.

However, we will find that some of these chickens are envious of the eagles and so they mock the young eaglets as they try to fly. Yet when the Eagles do finally fly, the chickens become jealous of the freedom that the eagles have achieved in soaring high.

We all need to reassess our life’s plan at time. So ask yourself this question “am I happy with where my life is heading to or indeed where I have arrived at this particular moment in time? If so great 🙂 ……..  If not then ask yourself this “‘ What can I DO to make the necessary changes to get back on my life’s pathway. Remember, this is YOUR pathway.

To achieve this journey you need to remove those negative jealous chickens and surround yourself with other eaglets and eagles. Follow and learn from those that have achieved the life that you wish to have. Make a commitment to yourself to ‘Achieve Your Dreams’. There are very few things in life that are impossible to achieve. I agree that it is unlikely that I will ever be President of the United States or the Pope. However with all due respect to those that are elected to these most important public offices, I have no desire to be either of these roles, even if I could. This is NOT my life plan. But it is theirs and I admire and respect those that achieve their ultimate goal.

I have worked hard and long to get the lifestyle I wish. Yes I have made a great many sacrifices in both time and money. This is all part of the adventure! Yet with receiving some support along the way from those that at least believed in me, even if they do not necessarily agree with my method of achieving my lifestyle,  I am now well on my way to achieving my dreams!

YOU can do it too. Look around you. Who or what is not serving you and hindering you. If it is a thought in your own mind that is stopping you from achieving your goals, then work through it! Push out of your comfort zone, push away those that are planting these negative seeds and take a chance! If you don’t take chances in life then you will never achieve your full potential. Take a small step now…. then another and you will see that it is not that bad afterall. Yes it can be a daunting  but ‘just do it!.

Work-Family Balance Issues? Try These 9 Tips

Today’s guest post courtesy of Matt Llyod CEO MOBE.

Michael Ellis Thornley
Writer and Entrepreneur
work-family-balance-issues-try-these-9-tips

“It’s not surprising that women and men alike say balancing work life with family life is an ongoing challenge. Juggling kids, a spouse and a career aren’t as easy as carving out time for each; it’s more like playing a 3-D chess game, which requires skill, advanced strategies and integrated thinking.

Instead of moving chess pieces on multiple boards, however, balancing the demands of work and family—especially for entrepreneurs—requires careful coordination, organization, communication and delegation. The good news is; it can be done. To help you attain a richer, more rewarding and balanced life, here are nine tips for balancing work and family:

1.  Rally your troops.

If your goal is to find balance, you’ll need to integrate your needs, along with those of your kids, spouse, career and friends, into a whole. But don’t do it alone. Get help from family, friends, neighbors and others when you need additional support. If you prepare for the unexpected by putting a solid contingency plan in place, you’ll find those last-minute emergencies to be a little less jarring. The key is to allow yourself to ask for and receive help.

2.  No bad feelings.

Everyone has been subjected to programming, and one of the ways people become conditioned over time is to feel guilty when problems arise. If you want to balance the ever-changing demands of work with your family responsibilities, start by saying bye-bye to guilt. It does no good because it keeps you rooted in what went wrong instead of what needs to happen to make it right—and it will only delay your progress toward attaining balance.

3.  Know when enough is enough and spread the word.

In a perfect world, you might not need to set boundaries … but here on Earth, you do. The limits you set are the only thing that could protect you from the actions of others. By defining what’s acceptable to you, you can determine how to manage your time, space and emotional availability.

Establishing clear boundaries makes the extent of your responsibilities clear. It also signals others regarding the types of demands you’re willing to accept. If you don’t set boundaries, you’ll find it much harder to say no. Remember, these are reasonable boundaries that you’re implementing for the well-being of your loved ones, and they’re necessary to balance the demands of work and family.

4.  Whose standards? Your standards.

The key to living a richer, more rewarding life is to set your own standards. That means ditching any illusions of perfectionism. Aim for small compromises that don’t undercut the interests of your spouse, kids, boss, friends or close family members. As long as you’re comfortable with the standards you’re setting for your work and home life—and your family’s needs and boss’ expectations are being met—you’re golden.

5.  Find Your “Alone Zone.”

With so many demands placed upon you, it’s easy to lose sight of your own needs. So, go for a walk, soak in the tub or find some other way to unwind, de-stress and ease the tension. Carving out a little “me time” will do wonders for your state of mind and overall health, and it will also benefit your family and co-workers.

6.  Everything should be in its place.

To effectively balance work and family, you’ll need to get organized. Start by setting your priorities, and be prepared to delegate. Remember that lists are your friend (and they’re re-usable!). Be sure to make room for an easy-to-reach calendar, so you can map out everyone’s activities.

7.  Stretch to stay flexible.

When you decided to have kids, you basically traded your what is for a giant what could be. So, embrace it. Cut yourself some slack when you miss an occasional goal or deadline. Just don’t get too comfortable, and be prepared to assume responsibility for any must-have projects or tasks that need to be completed, whether for work or home.

Staying flexible like this is one way to reduce the stress that comes with juggling multiple responsibilities. Another is to stretch your idea of success to allow for changes to your original game plan. Sometimes you have to revise your goals to allow for different-but-just-as-challenging ones. And that’s okay.

8.  Enjoy time with your family.

Your family is your greatest source of love and strength. By setting aside time to do things together, you’ll be investing directly in the people through whom all of your successes have relevance. So, commit to being with them and enjoying that time together. Create family traditions, play together and develop relationships with your spouse and children that will fuel your achievements in other areas of your life.

9.  Integrate for balance.

To find harmony in your life, you’ll need to integrate your work, family and friends into a unified whole. There’s no one way to do this—it depends on what you deem acceptable—so strive for balance and maintain perspective when the road gets bumpy. It’s all about finding ways to blend the needs of your loved ones with the requirements of your career.

Managing kids, a spouse and a career is never easy, especially for entrepreneurs. But you can attain a richer, more rewarding and balanced life if you develop a creative way to balance your family responsibilities with the demands of your career. Keeping these nine tips in mind should help.

Commitment and Consistency

commitment
What are the two biggest challenges people face in life that prevent them from being a success?

Commitment and consistency.

Most people dabble in this…… They “commit” to something at the beginning, when it’s new and exciting, yet that “commitment” soon wears off. It’s not long before they’ve “changed their mind” or come up with some excuse or reason to “commit” to something else.

This is the downfall of many, as they continually jump from one thing to the next. On top of that, they lack any form of consistency. They don’t show up. As the saying goes, “80% of success is just showing up”, yet many people can’t even do that.

Commitment and Consistency applies to both one’s business and personal life. It is fine to investigate and conduct research into a ‘project’ but ‘start it’ ‘try it’ and ‘give it’ all you have! Indeed in many instances the ‘project’ may not work but a valuable lesson has been learnt to empower you and guide you to a better path. However if you have not totally ‘committed’ yourself to the task then how can you possibly achieve success?

A secret to success is to be humble enough to ask for help from those that are already experts in the field. Swallow your pride and be guided by a suitable mentor. Why try to re-invent the wheel when the solution is already mapped out for you. Just add your own ‘ingredients’ to enhance the recipe to success to make it your own.

‘Just do it’….NIKE

Go forth and prosper!

Your habits determine your future

52e2b9122dd505633cf453bc
Guest blog with Kristen Owens
Your habits determine your future.
Is that encouraging for you to hear?  For me, it is a wakeup call to allow me to look into my life and assess where I am and what I need to shift.
You have one life and you have choice to shift whatever is needed to get you closer to where you want to go.
Successful people have successful habits, unsuccessful people don’t!
Without any condemnation or judgement, this is a simple statement to assess where you are now and what we can do to change.
You see, your brain likes to keep you safe. You’ve survived safe and you will again. This is the reason why it can be ever so difficult to ingrain that new habit into place. You’re used to doing that old thing and now you’re asking your brain to do something that is unfamiliar and to it, it is like risking your life cause you never know what will be on other side.
What if you could acknowledge the fear you have and then remember your commitment around your goal, access the courage from that place and do it afraid or do it even if it’s hard?
What then would be the outcome?
Would you have died?  Fainted? Or maybe you will have a new respect for yourself, a new found confidence and a sense of accomplishment that you can do this.
Make a list of habits that keep you unproductive. Really think about it because your habits determine your quality of life.  These bad habits or obstacles to your goals act as a springboard to your future success, because your habits determine your success.
If you don’t know what’s holding you back how do you know what new habits to create for more productive habits?  You won’t and you can’t.
I encourage to ask others around you what habits do they think hold you back.  Many times we don’t see what others see in us.
Once you’ve determined what bad habits you have then determine a success habit to adopt. Once you have these two then create a 3 step action plan.  This plan is where you will determine 3 steps you can put into place immediately to begin to change that habit.
If it is around growing your wealth and you have a habit of not paying yourself first, saving money and increasing your fees to be paid what you’re worth.  You may choose to begin to work with a money coach or a coach to improve relationship with money. You also decide to track your income you make and what you save.
This is just an example of steps that will help you to reach your goal and improve your habits. You may not see immediate changes but if you are consistent and disciplined you will see after 30 days, 90 days, 6 months and year the difference it made.  Patience is key!
I would love to hear what #success habits you plan to adopt to taking you closer to what you want.  You  can do that in my private facebook group here.
If you want some help with an action step, tool, strategy to get you on right track I would be happy to jump on a quick call too help you out. Reply to this email and type ‘chat please’.
Have a fab week!
