NEW MAGIC Hundred Community

I've literally just started a MAGIC Hundred community page at where all of my readers can come on over and create a supportive environment in which to achieve our goals.

Looks like a great way to keep on track with the New Year coming... and it's free!

Pop on over to

Be The First Out Of The Gate In January!

Hi There

You know, it's exactly 2 weeks to 2008!

It shouldn't matter that New Year is approaching, after all, in many respects, it's just another day but, well, for most of us it's an opportunity to start afresh on our quest toward achieving our goals and moving our lives onto the next level.

You're probably looking forward to a fresh start too, right?

But before you do, before you're ready to 'quit' 2007 and move on to a fresh year and a fresh set of goals I want you to do something for me.

Actually, I want you to do something FOR YOU!

Something that will propel your goals onward and upward in 2008 and make them so much more likely to be achieved.

Actually, I want you to do 2 things and I really, really hope you'll take the time to do them both.


Because if you do them, I can guarantee without a shadow of a doubt that the results you'll gain from pursuing your goals in 2008 and beyond will be far faster and far greater than you could possibly imagine.

What do I want you to do?

Well, like I said, it's 2 things.

First, I want you to create a VICTORY JOURNAL.

Don't know what a victory journal is?

It's very simple, it's a journal of all the small victories that you've achieved throughout 2007.

You could log the places you've been, the things you've learned, the projects you've completed, the things you've bought, the experiences you've had, in fact, you can log ANYTHING that has made you feel good throughout the year.

Anything that has made you feel like a winner.

Anything that felt like a victory, hence; victory journal!

Why is this important?

Well, because sometimes on our journey toward achieving our goals, we let the process of achievement become a bit of a chore, a task that must be completed, something to be gotten 'out of the way'.

Whe we do this, we barely register the goal as a success, we rarely allow ourselves to feel like winners and we rarely acknowledge the small victory we've just had.

And that's a shame because we turn a really powerful and life-changing event (accomplishing our goals actually changes our lives) into a chore on a to-do list and we miss the chance to savour the feeling of being a winner.

And so we enter the New Year thinking 'I hope I do better this year' and ignore the many great things that happened for us in the last one.


Create that Victory Journal!

Write down a list of all the really great accomplishments of 2007.

In fact, write a list of ANY accomplishments of 2007!

I promise you, once you create a victory journal of your own and actually see what you've accomplished, you'll be so much more motivated to move toward your new goals in 2008.

Feel free to post 'em here on this blog or set up a blog of your own.

Of course, you could also just use good old pen and paper too : )

But write the list ok?

I said there were two things...

Seconds, with the victories fresh in your mind, I want you to start your goals list for 2008 TODAY!

Seriously, dare to be different and plan your 2008 goals well in advance of the New Year.

Better still, start a new MAGIC Hundred as of Jan 1st but have it ready-written so that you can come 'out of the gate' in the best way possible when the bells ring in 2008.

Make your goals specific, make them exciting, make them detailed and then set about making them real!

Two simple steps, but I guarantee you, if you employ them both, you'll be stunned at how many goals you achieve within the first 100 days of 2008.

Truth, joy and love


P.S - The MAGIC Hundred Coaching Program starts January!

Action By Action

Yesterday I told you about the quote from Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius.

I've got to tell you, he really was a smart man.

He also said "You have to assemble your life action by action. And be satisfied if each one achieves its goal, as far as it can. No one can keep that from happening.- But there are external obstacles...... but if you accept the obstacle and work with what you're given, an alternative will present itself - another piece of what you're trying to assemble.Action by action"

Isn't that what the MAGIC Hundred is about?

Assembling your life action by action?

And sure, you've hit some obstacles and things have gotten in your way but you carried on right?

You kept working at the goal and new alternatives have been shown to you haven't they?

Sure, they're not ALL what you hoped for but think; how much further along the journey are you now compared when you started?

And it all happened action by action!

The one limit you SHOULD pay attention to

I was just reading through my 'Meditations' by the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius looking for some words of wisdom to share with you and to inspire you toward taking action toward your goals.

As I was reading through I read a lot of great messages, a lot of powerful and inspiring quotations that, at any other time, would create a ripple of emotion, a feeling in my gut that 'this is IT', this is the right message to share today... but today they just didn't feel 'right'.

It's not just that they didn't sound nice or the words were meaningless.

They were the very same words I've read a hundred times and recieved great insight and wisdom from, but today I 'just knew' that the words were the wrong ones...

Just as I was about to give up and look to somewhere else for the inspiration for todays message a passage caught my eye.

It said "Remember how long you've been putting this off, how many extensions the gods gave you, and you didn't use them.

At some point you have to recognise what world it is that you belong to; what power rules it and from what source you spring; that there is a limit to the time assigned you, and if you don't use it to free yourself it will be gone and never return"


Really makes you think doesn't it?

How long have we, all of us, been putting things off?

How many chances and 'go arounds' have we had that we didn't take?

How many times has our true path been shown to us, only for us to turn away and say 'not yet' or 'I'm not ready' or 'there's still time'?

Imagine if from this day forward we took all of the opportunities that came up.

Imagine if, instead of 'not yet' we said 'Now!'

Imagine if, instead of 'I'm not ready' you said 'When can I start?'

Imagine if, instead of 'There's still time' you said 'There's no time like the present'


Do you think that the subtle changes in these three sentances would change your life very much?

Try it today, put it into practice with you POWER questions and see what difference it makes.

Start now! : )

You NEED This Story Today!

A young boy sat in the living room with his father occasionally trying to get his Dad's notice for a game he was playing, a drawing he'd done at school or to tell some tale or other about the adventures he'd had at play that day.

This evening, like most in that house, the father simply said 'not now son, I'm busy. Let me read the paper in peace. I'll play with you when I'm done'.

The boy, like most evening, waited patiently and yet... nothing.

Finally, the boy said 'Daddy, can I ask you a question?' to which the father said 'oh, alright, if it'll get me five minutes of peace!'

"How much do you earn an hour?"

The father was outraged.

"What kind of question is that? It's none of your business!... why do you want to know?"

The boy looked sheepish but said "oh, nothing. It's ok" and turned back to his toys.

The father sat incredulous in the chair but finally said "Ok, if you must know, I earn £20 an hour and I work very hard for it"

With a half smile the boy said "Thankyou daddy, I'm glad you told me" and rushed off to his room leaving the puzzled father alone with the paper.

About a minute later the boy came back in and said "Daddy... can I borrow £10?"

"What?? You ask me how much I earn and then ask to borrow money? Go to your room for your cheek!" and he sent the boy off to bed.

The father sat there feeling first angry, then annoyed and finally outright puzzled about what the boy had asked.

"What is he up to?" he thought.

After a little while, he went in to the bedroom where the boy lay sleeping and watched his little chest rise and fall with each breath.

As he leaned over to kiss the boy goodnight, the little fellow opened his eyes and said "Sorry daddy, I didn't mean to make you angry"

"That's ok" the father replied and, feeling bad for snappping at him earlier reached into his pocket and handed the boy the £10 he'd asked for.

The boy's face lit up and he cried "Thankyou, thankyou".

'Obviously this is important thought the father', "What are you going to buy?" he asked?

With that, the little boy reached under his pillow and pulled out 2 crumpled £5 notes that he'd obviously been hoarding for something special.

"Well Daddy, now I have £20... I was kind of wondering..." he stammered, now shy "... can I buy an hour of your time just for the two of us?


Why this story and why today?

That's what you're wondering right?

Well, 2 reasons.

First, because time is the most precious commodity we have and yet we all have a tendency to fritter it away wastefully on those unimportant trivialities that seem to find their way into our lives yet at the same time, hoard it in the most miserly fashion from those who we claim to love.

I wanted to remind you of that today so that you can remember what you're doing this whole thing for (by whole thing I mean this program, your business, your career)... it's to have more fun, enjoy life and spend it with those you love.

So give them a call today.

Tell them that you love them and show it by doing something special.

Second, I wanted to illustrate that just because someone is asking for something from you, it doesn't always mean that your act of giving will weaken you.

Very often the simple act of freely giving what you CAN afford to give (no matter how small) is enough to set in motion a chain of events that you can never have predicted.

Try it today.

You can start by giving away the story above.

Send it on to as many people as you can and see what kind of a ripple you can create. (Then send me an email telling me what happened)

Magic Hundred Coaching Program 2008

A few days ago I sent my readers some information about the 2008 MAGIC Hundred Coaching Program and just wanted to check that you got it and that, well, you understood what it was about.

I say this because, along with receiving a bunch of applications for the program, I received a huge barrage of questions or comments about it that made it clear that many people just didn't know what the program was about or how it would work and, importantly, what would be the end-result of attending it.


My fault entirely and I apologise.

You see, I've always believed that that the main responsibility in communication lies with the speaker and not the listener and clearly, I didn't communicate the program well enough, or to enough people judging by the questions many were asking.

Especially the MAIN one I was asked by now fewer than 1800 people...

"How is this any different to anything else that's out there?"

A good question, and one I should have answered much better than I did.

Well, let me try and answer it now...

Perhaps I can start by telling you upfront what it's NOT about.

It's NOT one of those teleconference thingy's where a bunch of people get together to listen to someone read from a success book.

I've been part of several of these and, whilst they're interesting and temporarily uplifting, they never seemed to do anything other than give me a 'quick fix' of belief followed by a large dose of doubt once the call was over.

Besides, I've always been a voracious reader anyway and don't need to spend thousands of dollars to have someone read to me online when I can do it myself for less than 20.

It's NOT one of those 'I'll show you mine if you show me yours' kind's of program where everyone airs their dirty laundry in public whilst the rest of the group listens, sypathises and then tries to make you feel better by telling you how much worse their lives have been.

I've done one of these too and felt that although some people seemed to benefit from it, that I just came off of the calls with a temporary 'emotion dump' but that nothing had changed and was unlikely to change either.

It's NOT one of those online 'Ra-Ra' sessions where everyone says how great their week's been, how great life's been and what a great week and life they've got ahead of them if they only go on thinking positive thoughts.

I know from firsthand experience that those these sessions can be great fun, highly motivating and genuinely leave you feeling better than before you joined the call, but that, all too often, the 'high' is temporary and that the 'positive thinking' doesn't take you any closer to your actual goal... you just feel ok about not getting there yet.

Now don't get me wrong.

I'm not knocking these types of programs (Well, maybe I am, but just a little), but it seems to me that there's only ever one reason to join a program like this, and that's to bring about the results you're looking for.

After all, no-one Google's 'Wanted, expensive coaching program where I sit on the phone every week, read a book and hope for the best' do they?

You know they don't. They're looking for the same thing that you and I are looking for... RESULTS!

And that's what the MAGIC Hundred coaching program is about. In fact, it's the ONLY thing it's about!

During the six months of coaching, I'll be guiding you through a step-by-step, action-required, results-guaranteed coaching program where, with me as your coach you'll be trained, encouraged, supported and yes, even pushed, pulled and dragged kicking and screaming if needs be, toward your goals.

In fact, I will do anything and everything it takes to see you cross the finish line with your goals and dreams intact.

That's my job as a coach. In fact, that's the job of ANY coach... to help their team win.

But it won't be easy, there will be a LOT of work, not just reading and thinking about your goals.

There will be specific 'homework' for you to complete and specific action-steps for you to take and a lot of them will stretch you in ways that'll make you uncomfortable at first, and I'll insist that you go ahead and do 'em anyway.

But I tell you this, it whilst it'll be tough at times, it will NEVER be as difficult as you think is right now. It'll never be impossible or outside of your grasp entirely. It'll never be something you can lose at if you really don't want to.

But here's the rub.

You've got to WANT to win.

Sounds obvious but so many people really don't want to win. They want to get by. They want to keep what they've got. They want to avoid risk entirely.

So, is the MAGIC Hundred Coaching program right for you?

I don't know, I really don't. That's a decision that only you can make and I'm certainly not trying to 'sell' the program to anyone.

You have to WANT to do it otherwise you'll become a budren to me, the other members of your team and, ultimately, yourself.

However, if your interest has been picqued by this message then pop on over to and find out a bit more about the program.

In any event, I hope this message has cleared up any questions you may have had about the program and I wish you every success and happiness.


P.S - Both As A Man Thinketh and The new MAGIC Hundred are getting their finishing touches. I'll be sending them out to you real soon with my compliments.
