Feeling "average"?

You are reading this post because you are
already part of a privileged group.

Give it a second and allow the thought to settle…

Step 1 – Realize

  • You are in control of your life…
  • You control your future…
  • You can make this one of the best times of your life…

Step 2 – Thankful and Gratitude

  • Find the many things that you have to be grateful for.
  • Give thanks to God, the Universe, your mother… (It does not matter to whom)
  • Appreciate the not so obvious gifts (loving partner, parents, children…)

Step 3 – Breathe

Step 4 – Realise that you will be able to overcome the challenges you face.

Step 5 – Allow a deep calm to permeate your soul.

Step 6 – See the future.

Step 7 – Keep the good things, select the things you want to change, find a way to do it slowly…

  • Look after yourself
  • Look after your loved-ones
  • Look after your possessions
  • Look after your business / job / income stream

You have time… (It is right now)

Your future can look like this
