Beware the company you keep & the counsel you seek

“You’ll be exactly the same person five years from now except for two things: the people you meet and the books you read.” American speaker, Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones, delivered this nugget from a stage in Sydney 25 years ago. The takeaway was clear — if I wanted a great life, I had to meet better people…

It isn’t too late to reinvent your life

Am I too late? Has life passed me by? Is it wrong to want a better life? What the hell is wrong with me? These are the questions I struggled with this time two years ago.   I’d become a cliche; sitting there on the toilet at 2:00 am, thumbing my phone for answers: “How to…

The One Person to Listen to When Investing

If you’re anywhere near my age (I’m going to be 50 very soon), you know you need to be investing a sizeable portion of your income. Not should be. Need to be.  There are plenty of reasons for this, not least of which is the uncertainty around how much money you’ll need when you’re done working. But there’s another…

You can have everything…just not at the same time

If you’re a parent, you know only too well how impetuous kids can be. Especially teenagers! They want everything, at the same time, and they want it now.   Sadly, many adults behave the same way. In today’s Internet-connected society, we’re bombarded with something like 5,000 marketing messages every day. It’s little wonder we’re dopamine…

If you rely on motivation, you will probably fail

The personal development industry is worth over $11 billion a year.  Being better than we were last year is a profound psychological need that drives individuals, spurs innovation and pushes the human race to greater achievements every single day. We all want to grow; to provide more for ourselves and those we care about. We…

The Generosity Myth

“If you can’t be generous when you have nothing, you’ll not be generous when you have everything.” The moment these words shot out from the stage, I knew I’d always remember them.  Charlie ‘Tremendous’ Jones was firing off gems that night back in the late ’80’s. They were delivered during my embarrassing dalliance with an MLM company (an…

Eight Signs You’re not a Real Property Investor

A lot of people think they’re property investors, but they’re kidding themselves. Instead, they’re playing at being investors. I see this a lot with the self-employed, too.  They like to think they’re in business, but again, their processes, their mindset and their inability to scale their operations show they’re just ‘playing pretend’. Anyone who’s taken…

I’m too busy surviving to get ahead!

How many of us feel like this? I feel like this almost every day!  Once you hit your middle years, the demands on your time, your brain power and your energy are overwhelming. You start to value your time above just about everything. If you run a business, you know what I mean more than…

Your problem is you think you have time

Like is full of paradoxes. We’re told to treat every day as our last and live in the moment but on the other, “There’s no time like the present; time waits for no man.”   So let me explain what I mean and why it’s so important to recognise the threat behind those fateful words –…

The Subtle Trap of Lifestyle Purchases

The Subtle Trap of Lifestyle Purchases

Australia is one of the wealthiest nations on earth. Our standard of living truly reflects the maxim, ‘The Lucky Country’. So it’s easy to justify the way we indulge ourselves in material pleasures. We’re huge consumers.  I’ve always loved toys. Motorbikes, cars, four-wheel-drives, audio gear, photography gear, camping gear, gadgets – all of them! I…
