I’ve been wanting to write this post for a little while and I’ve briefly touched on it in the past with my story about sacrifice, but I think it’s time to really focus on the truth about chasing your goals and being 100% in. I’ve been speaking to a couple of people over the past week about this topic and it’s been really interesting to find their perspective on the subject and here’s mine. Social Life You cannot expect to reach your goals if you continue to have a social life. There I said it. If you think for one second…

What’s the most important thing you’ve ever learnt? Think really hard. It could be what you learnt in school, although I highly doubt it. Or is it how to start up a business? Maybe it’s how to stick to a plan and avoid procrastination. I’ve learnt a lot of lessons this year. Hard one’s. Like the need to get rid of toxic people and the importance of learning to say ‘no’ – even if it’s your family! But these don’t even come close to what I think is the number one thing that everyone needs to learn. So here it…

I’ve spent a shit load of wasted time staring at to-do lists trying to figure out what to do next. I put absolutely every single little thing on my list, some weeks it has over 50 things on it. Some things have been on there for months, some a couple of days. There’s a lot of stuff on there but I know exactly what to do next. I spend time on prioritising my to-do list. I never used to do this. I used to do the most attractive activities first and basically miss out on huge opportunities due to putting…

Possibly one of the most regular things that came out of my mouth growing up – “I hate books!” I had no interest in them and why would I? I grew up with computers, Playstations, Ipods, all the fun stuff. They had moving images, they flashed and they made sounds. Books! Books were boring. I had to pay attention. They didn’t make cool noises and no one ever spoke about the recent books they read. I now know how stupid this was of me. The amount of stuff I’ve learnt just from reading books would be close to the amount…

When used properly, a mentor can help you fast track to your goal. I’ve never understood the importance of a mentor until recently. I always had people I could go to with questions but I never utilized the opportunity. Now, I know the importance of having someone you can go to with questions or to bounce ideas off. I used to be the kind of person who never understood why it was so important to go to university, and to be honest, I still don’t. I believe that everything can be taught while on the job. I believe you need…

Reading books is one of the most important things you need to be doing when chasing your goals. Books are where you will gain most of your knowledge. They give you the ability to learn from other people’s experiences and in turn allow you to alter your way of life to ensure you keep moving forward. I used to be the kind of person who would openly tell people how much ‘I hate reading’ I just didn’t see the point. I would have preferred watching TV over reading. If this sounds like you, you need to change. Every time you…

If you have a goal, it’s time to start pursing it. No more excuses, no more putting it off, right now, make the decision to start.     It took me 3 years to go from wanting to do something bigger, to actually starting a business and pursuing my goal for something more. It took me 3 whole years to reach the stage of turning my goal into a burning desire. If I had started when I decided on my goal I would be 3 years further than where I am now. That’s the reality, the longer you wait to…

There are no ‘get rich quick schemes’ and there are no short cuts. You have to work hard and for a long period of time, if you want to reach your goals.   At the beginning of your journey to success, no matter how good your plan is, you won’t see results over night. It’s going to be a long, hard, grueling process that’s going to throw you from wall to wall, constantly. Doesn’t sound very inviting, does it? Well, it’s not supposed to be easy, that’s why it’s called a goal. It’s not something you have immediate access to,…

Complaining never fixes anything. It might be an obvious statement, but yet so many people use complaining as an alternative to acting. No matter how much you complain, the issue will never be resolved. Complaining is something you need to conquer. Complaining about challenges in your life will only guarantee that nothing will be resolved. It shows that a person is not willing to make a change, that they’re not willing to go that extra mile. If you truly want to chase your goals eliminating the need to complain is essential. By removing the need to complain, you will be…

Nothing easy is worth doing and nothing worth doing is easy. At 24 years of age, I’ve failed so many times in my life I’ve lost count. It doesn’t matter how many times you fail or how hard you fail. What does matter is how many times you get back up. You only have to get up 1 more time then you fail in order to achieve your goals.     There’s 2 ways to approach failure.   The first is letting failure defeat you. This is common in schools. You accept failure to the point that it becomes a…
