One Minute Tip:

When You Have to Make an Important Decision, Don’t Leave It (Entirely) to Chance

The Situation: You’ve done all the analysis and narrowed your options to two courses of action. Both have strengths and weaknesses, risks and rewards. You can’t make up your mind.

The Solution: Flip a coin or put each option on one side of an index card and flip it.

The Secret: Pay attention to how you feel about the winner. Are you relieved? Disappointed? That feeling represents your intuition — which has been overwhelmed by all the heavy analysis you’ve been doing.

Action to Take: Follow your intuition, not chance.

Tips for your Happiness:

Three Keys to Greatness by Jim Rohn

Ten years ago I went into the studio and recorded a 56-minute video for teenagers called “Three Keys To Greatness.” Although my focus was for teenagers, the principles I shared certainly apply to adults as well.

Recently I was asked to list these three things using one to two sentences for each. Now for your benefit here they are again.

1) Setting Goals. I call it the view of the future. Most people, including kids, will pay the price if they can see the promise of the future. So we need to help our kids see a well-defined future, so they will be motivated to pay the price today to attain the rewards of tomorrow. Goals help them do this.

2) Personal Development. Simply making consistent investments in our self-education and knowledge banks pays major dividends throughout our lives. I suggest having a minimum amount of time set aside for reading books, listening to audiocassettes, attending seminars, keeping a journal and spending time with other successful people. Charlie “Tremendous” Jones says you will be in five years the sum total of the books you read and the people you are around.

3) Financial Planning. I call it the 70/30 plan. After receiving your paycheck or paying yourself, simply setting aside 10% for saving, 10% for investing and 10% for giving, and over time this will guarantee financial independence for a teenager.

If a young person, or for that matter an adult, focused on doing these three simple things over a long period of time I believe they will be assured success!

To Your Success,
Jim Rohn

Tips for your Health:

Healthy, Fun, Cookbook ideas to inspire you!

How many times have you heard your kids or spouse ask you, “what’s for dinner?”

I tell you at our house it has become a running joke.

So if you’re like me, you can’t get enough quick and easy recipes to try. That’s why I’ve set up a special page where you can download a selection of great cookbooks just for being a valued subscriber.

There is a selection of free e-books to print up for a massive choice of recipes. Or just find one you are interested in, then mouse click, drag, copy and paste into a Word doc and just print the recipes you want as you go…

Here’s that special link – scroll down to the Healthy Cooking Recipes section

Tips for your Prosperity:

Making your answering message work for you

Voicemail can be a useful tool to present a professional image of your business. But have you thought of using it as a marketing tool as well?

Instead of the usual, “I’m not here at the moment but leave a message…..” why not record a message which emphasises what you do.

For example,

“Sorry, I’m not in at the moment because I’m with a client showing them how they can boost their profits but if you leave …..”

Or, “Sorry, I’m not in at the moment because I’m with a client talking about totally revamping their web site, but if you leave…. .”

Corny? Perhaps! But you’ll no doubt agree that said in the right tone of voice it’s much more interesting, reinforces your credibility and shows you are busy!


Are you underachieving, overworked, unfulfilled, or trapped in the wrong career? Is your income sufficient to meet your needs and desires? Are you settling for second best? Want to put your best foot forward and take the most constructive actions to achieve everything you want?

Your association with money determines whether you attract it or not.

Broke people usually have a negative energy and connotation surrounding money. They obsess about how they are unable to do things that require money.

Wealthy people have a very positive association with money. They view it in terms of the freedom, enjoyment and pleasure it brings them.

Having a negative association of money repels it from you, while a positive association attracts it to you.

Make sure that you are quite clear in your mind about how your life will be different when you achieve your financial goals. If you haven’t foreseen the improvement and embraced all the benefits and “things” that the extra money will be bringing into your life and your new life standards – you can’t manifest it into your reality.
Telling yourself that you intend to “become a millionaire”, but “nothing will change me” because you will still drive the same car, wear the same clothes, and live in the same house – is self defeating.


How do you FEEL about being or becoming truly PROSPEROUS in your everyday life?

Are you programmed against rich people? Money is Bad. Rich people are evil. It is spiritual to be poor. They may be rich, but that doesn’t make them happy. Rich women are vain, vapid and superficial. Rich men are workaholics who don’t care about their family, only making money.

Our media is very effective in programming us from childhood about how we should feel about wealth and wealthy people. Consider the TV shows Dallas and Dynasty. When did you last see anything on TV that showed people as Wealthy, who were also healthy, thin, happy, loving, contributing, and well balanced people you would like as friends or partners…..

Why do we then soak up the image of money not bringing wellbeing?

If you are overweight and out of shape, it’s good to know that those who are very thin aren’t necessarily happy. Because let’s face it, that would really be too much. If we knew that they were thin AND happy – that might be more than we can bear!

And if we know that rich people are poor parents – we can feel noble for being broke. If we learn that wealthy people are vain, stupid and cheat on their spouses – then we can justify why we never opened that business, when after that promotion, or acted on our dream.

“We may be poor, but at least we are honest”. Translation to your subconscious mind: Rich people are crooks.

Is it any wonder that you grow up hating rich people and subconsciously not wanting to be like them?

…Once this is ingrained in you, the guilt starts.

“You paid how much for that! ? ! Isn’t that a bit much?”

You start to feel guilty when you buy nice things. If you have great health, or a wonderful relationship, you start to downplay them around friends that don’t have them.

You hide your light under a bushel, because you want to fit in. You may start degrading yourself with self-depreciating humor around them.

Did any of the guilt you have or had in the past come from the idea that if you are getting something good – it means someone else is getting something bad? That’s what (a lot of people think).

It is based on the supposition that money is FINITE.

Money – like love, substance and other resources – is INFINITE.

All these resources can be infinitely replenished, simply by you manifesting more.

….Why is it that normally apathetic people get irate at the thought of anyone who prospers from their own ingenuity?

…. Maybe they are so deeply ingrained in poverty-consciousness, that they resent people who are wealthy. They become envious of people who are succeeding.

…..If you think this is untrue, I’d like you to close your eyes in a moment and imagine that it is New Year’s day and your home is filled with your family and friends. In a moment of inspiration, you silence everyone and announce that it is your intent, for this New Year, to become a billionaire!
In the overwhelming silence or amusement that follows, how will you feel? Do you immediately recant and say you were just kidding to let everyone off the hook? How do you FEEL, right NOW, just thinking about it?


Home is where we learn to watch television.

Have you ever seen a TV commercial for a $100,000 necklace? For your own private jet? Rolls Royce?

Actually you don’t see too many advertisements for anything remotely prosperous.

Mainly it’s the latest $1.99 meal at McDonalds…….Beer and cola commercials abound. The irony is that the masses have their reality reflected back at them and it’s all lack-conscious, low-end stuff. It’s what they wear, what they see, what they eat.

(Are you asking yourself – )

If we’re successful, won’t our friends and family think we’re bad people. They think other rich people are bad – why not us.

If I tell my friends my hopes and dreams, will they ridicule me? Will they snicker and say stuff behind my back? What if I try really hard and fail, will everyone laugh?

If my house if bigger than my parents, will they harbor resentment? Will they stop loving me?

Analyze WHY others think the way they do – and think differently!
