Do THIS To Bring Your Goals To Life Faster!

"It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan."

- Eleanor Roosevelt, first lady

How much time do you spend wishing that things in your life were different?

That you could do more?

That you could have more?

That you could be more?

It's so easy to think that these things are outside of our grasp and that success will always elude us, but history tells a very different story.

It tells us that people who have taken their dreams and put them on paper in the form of a plan have increased their likelihood of attaining them by anything from 500 - 5000%!

How would you like that kind of return on the investment of YOUR dreams?

Then write them down and bring them into the world. You see, as long as they remain in your head, it is, to the world at least, as if they don't exist.

Writing them down is the first step on the road to making a dream into a reality... So do it now!

Truth, Joy and Love

You don't have to believe that writing your goals down brings them any closer to you. Just suspend disbelief and see what happens!

Dax Moy Attacked By Snake In Thailand

Ok, maybe not the complete truth...

But it made you look, right? : )

The truth is that poor old 'snakey' was road kill and I thought it would make a good photo opp (Hey, I never said that I was one of those goals people that spends every day in a suit at convention centers did I?)

But there is a reason I wanted to use that pic today and get you to this page.

It's to remind you to put a bit of adventure into your life whenever you can.

Seek out new and unusual experiences.

Try new things.

Add colour to your life in as many weird and wonderful ways that you can WHEN you can.

You see, a great life is one full of stories and those stories come from your experiences, from your adventures.

After all, there's not much of a life story to tell when you say "Woke up at 7, showered, had breakfast, went to work, came home, watched TV , went to bed" is there?

Far more of a story when you say "Yep, I'm the idiot in the picture with a snake in his mouth" or
"Yep that's me by the Pyramids in Egypt"

Or "Yep, that's with the giant Buddha in Thailand"

Yep, life's about your stories.

So go get some!

Pick one new thing to experience this week.

A theatre show, a dance lesson, a parachute jump, a bungee jump, go camping.

You can do ANYTHING you want but just do something you wouldn't normally do.

Get a new story this week and come back here and share it.


Truth, joy and love

Ready For this 7 Day Media Fast?

Hey Guys

I've been having a hard time getting online as the internet connection here at the villa in Thailand is pretty strange at times. In fact, I've been kept offline all day today...

Anyway, I'm here now and that's the main thing, right?

Today's message is a pretty simple one.

It's about turning back time and hitting the reset switch on your life for a while.

You see, whilst I've been running my mastermind retreat over here, I've been thinking a lot about how so many of our problems are made by ourselves and our reactions to the world around us. It's almost as if we bulid our realities based upon what others tell us is going on.

Swine flu? Ow, be careful!

Recession? Better tighten the purse strings!

You get my drift.

It's almost like we have to play a part in a big game that we never even decided to join, right?

Well, what if you just dropped out for a while? Just a little bit?

What if you didn't read any newspapers, watch any news or listen to any radio for a week?

What effect do you think that would have?

Better still, what if during that same week you only read books that were related to your childhood like Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches or anything else that sprang to mind? (Yes, I love Roald Dahl - I read thses stores to my son Connor every night)

Do you think that after just 7 days you'd feel different about the world?

I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt on my part that you would. I know because I do : )

Becoming a kid again is pretty cool.

It allows you to shake off the heaviness of being an adult and return to the life of imagination and wonder that you used to believe in so much when you were young.

You should try it for yourself.

Go on, I dare ya!

Give this 7 day return to childhood a go and report how it makes you feel. It certainly can't hurt, right? : )

Truth, joy and love

P.S - Post what books you're going to start with... I'd love to know : )

Slumdog Secrets To Goal Achievement

During last night’s flight to Bangkok I watched the movie everyone’s been talking about recently…

Slumdog Millionaire.

You may have heard about it? : )

Now, I’m not big on reviews for movies. I always teach my family not to make their decisions in life about ANYTHING based on whether others or not like, dislike the movies, books or trips that they want to take.

I always tell them to experience it for themselves and make up their own minds.

Good advice, yes?

Well, I’ve gotta tell you, I can see why everyone was raving about Slumdog. It’s a seriously excellent film… if you watch it for more than entertainment, that is.

Don’t get me wrong, as entertainment it’s still a great movie, but the real value comes from the lesson that the main character teaches throughout the movie.

It’s invaluable in fact.

In case you haven’t seen it, Jamal, the lead character is an orphaned slum kid who grew up on the streets with his brother and did what he needed to do to survive, including thievery and conning the unsuspecting tourist and the like.

The film shows him winning the unlikely 20,000,000 rupees on the show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and includes scenes of torture at the hands of the police when they suspect him of winning the sum as part of some great scam.

It seems to them that this uneducated ‘slumdog’ couldn’t possibly know the answers to the show’s toughest questions so he must be cheating yet, as they replay question after question on video he tells the tale of how he came to know the answers to each one.

He learned them through the experience s of actual events that happened to him as he was growing up.

Each event he experienced created an association to some snippet of trivia that the most educated would struggle to remember, yet that this young ghetto boy knew off by heart because he had actually lived the answers.

THERE’S the secret to gaining true knowledge and that’s what I wanted to share today. Read all the books you want. I encourage it fully. It’s important that you do. But nothing, NOTHING in your life becomes true education, true learning without actually experiencing it for yourself.

Until you translate what you see or hear into action of your own, it’s all just information, just data. A series of random numbers and letters on paper. It’s of no real value.

Act on it though and, wow! Everything changes!

Learn one new thing today then bring it to life by acting on it and see for yourself why they say ‘knowledge is power’.

Truth, joy and love

Dax Moy

P.S – You are what you DO!

It doesn't matter how many books you read, youtube videos you watch or even, dare I say it, at some point you have to DO stuff.

Stop watching from the sidelines when you could be playing the game yourself!

Stop The Bleeding For Goal Achievement Success

Well, were now just 4 days out from the start of the next MAGIC Hundred 100 day challenge and, whilst the late nights I'm putting in to get it all finished in time are pretty tiring, I must say, I'm really much more excited than tired and REALLY looking forward to getting started : )

In fact, I've been so excited that most nights over the last 10 days or so that I've only been averaging about 4-5 hours sleep... oops!

But hey, that's the price that must be paid for success on this project, right? If I want it to work out the way I want it to, then I simply must pay that price or it won't happen. There's a lesson there...

I guess that's what makes the MAGIC Hundred so effective too. You know EXACTLY how long you'll be playing the game so you know EXACTLY how to manage your time, your energy and your passion for the duration. It's like running a race. If you know at the start that it's 10km then you can set out at the right pace to run the race through to its completion as quick as you're capable of.

If, on the other hand, I simply told you to put your running shoes on, opened the door and shouted 'RUN!' then you wouldn't have a clue what pace to run at, how long you were expected to run for or even, what the purpose of the run was would you?

It would make it very difficult to stay motivated and inspired if you never knew where the finish line was and you'd simply get frustrated, burned out and fed up of the whole thing.

You'd quit.

And that's what MOST people do with their goals.

They set out with a head full of goals and a bunch of excitement and positive thoughts about what they'll accomplish 'this time' yet, in pretty short order they grind to a halt and quit.

The MAGIC Hundred is different though. Because you know the 'race' is being run for just 100 days you can give it your all and, because you are, you get more done faster than ever before. Just knowing the exact date that you'll be crossing the finish line makes a massive difference.

I love the simplicity of this approach! (Yes, I know I'm the author of the program but I can still love it!) : )

In fact, you'll find that the whole of the program is FILLED with six-year-old-simple exercises throughout, meaning that you won't have to worry about trying to figure out a bunch of well meaning yet totally confusing theory and success philosophy and instead just focus on DOING the things that will bring your goals to life.

Good huh? : )

Of course, if you've l already been through the program, you know the power of this but still, with all the new material I've added, I've made it simpler than ever which means you'll be getting your results even faster.

For example, here's just one example of a new little exercise that I've added to the program. It's super-simple yet I've found that for myself and others who I've coached through it has made a difference within days and even hours of going through the process.

Perhaps you'll find the same.

Download my STOP THE BLEEDING Workbook for FREE right here, right now and go through it today. Then post me a comment to let me know how you found it.

I'd love to hear about your experience with it... please! : )

4 Days and counting....

This Star Of 'The Secret' said WHAT About The MAGIC Hundred?

Bob Proctor Of the Secret Loves Dax Moy's MAGIC Hundred Goal Achievement Program!

Hey There!

It's almost midnight here in the UK and I'm still busy, busy, busy working on adding the finishing touches to the all new 'souped up' version of The MAGIC Hundred Goal Achievement Program.


You know, when I first wrote the original program, I thought it was a pretty complete and thorough program already and, judging by the feedback I got for it, so did thousands of others.

In fact, even Success guru and start of the hit law of attraction movie 'The Secret' was so impressed by it that he raved about it to his own subscriber list and helped me turn it into an amazing success story in its own right, grossing $107,000 in the first 7 days after its release.

Here's what he said...

""Dax Moy has truly impressed me, he did something which is pure

Dax has approached Financial Success much like a professional Astronomer. He charted every move he made while he was multiplying his own income, which has enabled him to transfer this valuable information to you and others.

Make certain you apply these suggestions exactly as Dax Moy has them laid out. Get the Law of Attraction working for you like Dax and I have it working for us."

Bob Proctor - The World's Leading Motivational Speaker and Success Strategist and Star Of 'The Secret'


With a testimonial like that, the MAGIC Hundred certainly didn't need a rewrite, yet over the last 2 years I've learned so much more about achieving goals rapidly that I just felt compelled to write add what I've learned to the program and share it with my readers both old and new.

So I have and I am! : )

In fact, this time round I've added even more strategies for achieving financial, educational, adventure, relationship and contribution goals faster than ever.


In addition, I've added new audios, videos, teleseminars and, of course, a new series of daily messages to motivate, inspire, keep you on track and, if necessary, kick you in the pants to make sure you stay on track and get stuff done for the
full 100 days so that it will be impossible for you to fail.

It's going to an amazing 100 day journey, and I'm sure you're going to love every minute of it so make sure you don't miss the official start of the next 100 day challenge at midnight on Sunday.

In the meantime, watch this video just 1 more time. You know you want to : )

P.S - If you already own a copy of the program you'll be receiving the new copy for free with my compliments at midnight on Sunday. if you DON'T then pick up a copy any time between now and then to ensure that you're in line and ready to go come Monday morning.

Think Your Goals Are Too Big? Watch This!

Getting lots of emails at the moment from people who've been reading the free chapter of Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich that I gave away on the blog on tuesday. People are telling me that they love the book already, even though they've only had a taster.


I've also had a lot of people tell me that they really do want to believe in all this 'goals stuff' but that they're afraid to dream big and stretch themselves to achieve their goals because the goals seem so unrealistically huge compared to where they're at right now.

I understand.

Goals can seem that way at times.

That's why it's important to just stand back and gain a 'big picture' perspective on life sometimes.

Here's what I mean...

See, whatever goals you've got in mind are tiny compared to what's been achieved in the universe so far. The biggest thing you could possibly imagine achieving is but a speck.

So think as big as you like.

Think as big as you CAN!

Then get to work!

Truth, joy and love

P.S - Only 11 days left til the next MAGIC Hundred Challenge Begins... I'm Excited! : )

Here's Think And Grow Rich... With My Compliments

Well, most of you seemed to guess right, despite my red herring on the date : )

The book that started the whole chain reaction of all of my subsequent success was Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

I can't tell you more strongly how influential the book was at putting on the journey toward developing the mindset of an action-taker and subsequently for putting me on the path to reading, studying and taking action on the many goals that I've gone on to achieve over the last 8 years.

It's a truly amazing read.

Which is why I want to give a copy of the book as a gift. Well, the first chapter at least as this sets the stage for developing the mindset of a winner. The mindset you'll need to develop if YOU want to achieve the goals and dreams you've been thinking about for ages but, well, never gotten around to.

think and grow rich from Dax Moy

All you have to do is pop on over to my think and grow rich download page and grab it now. Don't worry, you won't have to opt in to any lists or anything, just grab the first chapter of this amazing success classic with my compliments by way of thanks for being reader of my blog and putting up with my mad ramblings : )

Just promise me one thing ok?

Promise me you'll actually READ IT!

You see, it's no accident that practically every seriously successful person you've ever heard of has a copy of this book on their bookshelf. But they didn't get successful from owning the book alone. The had to read it and then ACT upon what they read.

It's only the action that brings these timeless principles to life, but we'll be talking more about that in the days ahead, but for now just pop on over, grab the book, read it and pay attention.

Remember, this might be one of those critical moments in your life, just like it was for me. You never know, which is why you have to pay attention, right? : )

I Never Knew This Would Happen... It Could Happen To You Too!

I've been re-writing a few sections of The MAGIC Hundred today in order to update a few of the chapters with things I've learned since I originally launched the program in January 2007.

As I was writing away, it dawned on me how much my life has changed in the 2 short years since the program was released and how a simple decision at one moment in time can DRASTICALLY alter the hundreds, thousands and even MILLIONS of moments that follow.

You probably know what I'm talking about as it's happened to all of us, but I've got to tell you, when I started out with my 'little idea' all those years ago (even before I wrote the program) I had no idea where it would eventually lead me. No idea at all!

I mean, when I left the regular army about 8 or 9 years ago I had nothing.

No qualifications (I'd left school at 16 without taking my exams), no money (I was completely broke) and no obvious means to get either. To make matters worse, I had a young wife, 3 young kids and another one on the way, and nothing remotely approaching the slightest hint of how I was going to support them, let alone give them the things that every father and husband wants to provide for their family.

We were living in high crime council accommodation on a housing estate in North London (in what in the U.S would be known as 'projects') and claiming social security benefits in order to pay the bills and get by and dreaming of ways to improve upon our situation so that we could give our kids some of the better things in life.

I took many temporary jobs including bodyguarding, roadsweeping and even working in sewers in order to get the little bit of extra cash we needed and supplemented my income with my Reserve Forces pay from my territorial army unit weekends, camps and courses, but as fast as I was able to earn a little money it seemed to be eaten up on bills of every conceivable type so that, no matter how hard I worked, we were never able to get ahead.

It was frustrating to say the least but, like most people, it was a frustration i just had to learn to tolerate. After all, my bills had to be paid, right?

Then one day after an army weekend, I noticed one of the other guys in my patrol was reading a book in the back of the truck on the way home. He was coming to the end of it and as he finally turned the last page he glanced up and noticed me looking in his direction. Seeing I was bored he offered me the book, which I gratefully took and in that moment... started a chain reaction of events that would totally transform my life!

I'm not exaggerating.

I read that book all the way home, persuaded my patrol-mate to lend it to me until later in the week and took it home and read, and read and read.

Now, what was surprising to me was that this wasn't a new book. It was old. REALLY old, like 1920's, yet as I read through it I felt as though it had been written specifically with me in mind as it described many of the very things that I had been going through and, more importantly, why.

It told me to hold a major definite purpose uppermost in my mind, pursue it with all vigor and not to quit on it until I accomplished what I'd set out to accomplish.

So I did!

I'd always had an interest in fitness and having boxed, done martial arts and been a soldier, knew that I was naturally gifted in this area as well as passionate. I'd seen ads posted for gym instructor jobs but when I enquired they told me to go get a civilian qualification and they'd consider employing me. Trouble is, I didn't even have the £325 I needed for the YMCA gym instructor course, but the book said that I shouldn't let that put me off, so I set about getting a bunch of temporary jobs to raise the cash.

Eventually I did the course, got qualified and went back to the gym where they told me they only had work for me for 2 hours a week in the shifts that no-one else wanted and that the pay was a measly £5 an hour. I took the job and again, changed the course of my life.

In short, that job led to me becoming a personal trainer, becoming a trainer led me to owning my own studios, owing my own studios led to me working directly with people like Bob Proctor and Joe Vitale from The Secret and working with those guys led to me writing the MAGIC Hundred Goal Achievement Program which sold over $107,000 in the first 7 days of launch and that has led to me traveling the world, speaking at international events and teaching my own rapid goal achievement philosophy to thousands and thousands of people.

Since making that first teeny-tiny decision to read that book instead of going to sleep like my patrol-mates, literally EVERYTHING about my life has changed and I find myself in the weird and rather unlikely position of being some kind of 'goals guru' to people from all around the world who I've never even met and earning more money than I ever thought I'd earn whilst traveling the world and having all kinds of adventures.

It's very strange indeed!

Nice, but strange : )

I now live the kind of life that I'd only dreamed about before with travel all over the world to jungles, deserts and arctic wastelands as well as luxury hotels, secluded islands and all manner of other places that I'd only ever seen in books before I started on this amazing journey that my life has become.

But looking back at how I got to this point in my life and the opportunities I now have before me, I can honestly say it all started with reading that one book. It's as though that one decision was like setting a compass bearing just slightly off course to the original path I'd been on at the time, yet which over the weeks, months and years has moved far off the original course to deliver me to the place I'm at now.

I guess you're wondering 'What's this got to do with me?' right?

Well, nothing I guess...


You see, just as my own life has been created by each of the decisions I've made along the way, so has yours.

Everything you've experienced so far is the result of the decisions you've made (or failed to make) up to this point.

That's a fact.

The good news is that that means you can also decide where you want to go, what you want to do and who you want to be just by the simple and straightforward act of making a decision right now. I mean LITERALLY right now!

Just choose to act on something you've been putting off, something you've been 'thinking about' or something that's been tickling away at the edge of your mind and you too could find yourself living the life of your dreams in some not-too-distant future.

I mean it.

It happened to me so why not you?

Make a decision TODAY my friend.

Set a new course!

Truth, joy and love

Dax Moy

P.S - I almost forgot, I bet you want to know what that book was that started off my magnificent adventure, right?

Put your best guess below and I'll tell you tomorrow : )

(I know, nasty huh?) : )

Ready For the Next 100 Days Of Goal Achievement?

You know, today marks day 102 of 2009 meaning that a full MAGIC Hundred cycle has just been completed and another one is about to begin.

How did you do?

Did you go all out and achieve most of your MAGIC Hundred list or did life get in the way, just like it always does?

Don't get me wrong, I'm not judging you here, it's just a question and, like you, I've had my fair share of life getting in the way too. In fact, life got in the way befor midnight on New Year's Eve for me, BEFORE I even started my first MAGIC Hundred of the year!

It's true!

I spent half the day on New Years Eve writing out my MAGIC Hundred list only to be hit by a firework and get myself a pretty nasty full depth burn to my foot. Not great but even more of a pain was the fact that my list was VERY physical this year.

VERY physical!

It involved ultra distance racing across deserts, bungee jumping, performing all manner of weird and wonderful physical acts using my body as a tool and yet, here I was, before my MAGIC Hundred had even begun and ALREADY my goals were in jeopardy.

In fact, as the hundred days went on it became painfully obvious (literally) that many of my goals were not going to happen this time around.

So what did I do?

Well, I'll tell you what I didn't do.

I didn't quit, I didn't consider myself a failure, I didn't think that my goals were over.

I simply re-prioritised.

I pursued those goals that I COULD act upon and, to be quite honest, I've surpassed many that I would never have accomplished if I'd have been pursuing the mainly physical goals I'd set for myself.

I now have 3 new businesses online all making me money, I've got some great trips under my belt and new ones about to take place and I have a great deal of projects that have come to fruition during my MAGIC Hundred journey.

Oh yes, and I also achieved one of my MAJOR adventure goals of visiting the pyramids in Egypt with my family!

And that's only the FIRST hundred days of 2009!

I'm so excited by what the NEXT hundred days will hold, I can tell you!

That's why I'm asking how YOU did.

You see, the great thing about The MAGIC Hundred is that you get to 'play' it over and over and over again, as many times as you want, and each time you get to experience more and more and more of what you want.

And I'm beginning MY next MAGIC Hundred on Monday 27th April, just 15 days away and this time I'm enhancing it in ways I've never shared before with tons of new strategies and systems to help my readers achieve results even faster.

I'm also going to run the entire program as more of a 'challenge' with daily blog updates from all of my readers as they go through the program, providing a kind of accountability and support network for the full 100 days to ensure that we get the kind of results I know are possible from the program.

Wanna play? : )

If you're ALREADY A MAGIC Hundred user then all I'll be sending you an email very shortly with instructions on how to rejoin the next challenge for free.

If you're not, then you'll need to pick up a copy of the full program from my site at

Dead Fly Secrets To Successful Goal Achievement


"How A DEAD FLY Taught Me The Secrets Goal Achievement Success"

Not that long ago, I was sitting in the reception of one of my personal training studios. It was a nice day so we had the studio door open to let in some `real' air and freshen up the place a little.

As I sat there watching people come in and out for their training sessions I noticed a large, black fly had flown in and after buzzing around for a few minutes and finding nothing of interest, it decided to leave.

It flew right past my head and with a `thump', hit the plate glass window before bouncing off and falling to the floor in a daze.

After a few seconds of circling around on the floor it took off again and took what I can only describe as a 'run-up' (fly­up?) at the window in a greater attempt to get through the barrier that was keeping it from its goal of the outside world.

With an even louder `thump' the fly went down again and spent more time on the floor.

Well, to cut a long story short, that fly got up again and again and again and pounded at that window with all of its might for over 10 minutes before I had to get up and take care of a customer.

About 30 minutes later I sat back down in the same spot having totally forgotten about the fly and went back to my `people watching' when, out of the corner of my eye I saw the fly laying at the base of the window on its back, legs in the air.

It was dead.

Now, usually the death of a fly is not worthy of remembrance but this one I will always remember because its death taught me one of the greatest success lessons I've ever learned and I continue to reap the benefits of its teaching to this day.

(In fact, just before posting this message today I realised that I'd forgotten the lesson I'd been taught and realised why I'd been feeling a little stressed and frustrated today)

What Did It Teach Me?

That Working HARDER Simply Doesn't Work!

You see, in theory, that little fly was doing everything right. (According to the goal setting experts anyway)

It had a clearly defined goal − To get out.

It had passion − It risked and eventually paid with its life.

It was willing to work as hard as necessary to bring about its goal.

In fact, that little bug kind of reminded me of Me!

Actually, not only did it remind me of me, but of many, great people
that I'd met who knew what they wanted, had passion and were willing to work as hard as necessary to achieve their goals but who were, over and over again bashing their heads in on the same invisible barrier that did for that fly.

And whilst it may not have ended in physical death for the trainer (I hope not!), nearly always it ends in the death of their hopes and dreams which, to me at least, is pretty much the same thing.

No, at that very moment it was clear to me that working harder would only ever
take me so far but that, if I were willing to do what the fly and so many other people were unwilling to do, I could achieve far more than I was that time.

All I Had To Do Was...

Change My Strategy!

You see, that's where that little fly had gone wrong and, truth be told, where I had gone wrong so many times, (including this morning!) is that it doggedly stuck to the same strategy even once it had failed to work.

Instead of flying 5 feet over to the open door to its freedom and whatever life awaited it beyond that invisible barrier, it continued to bang its head off of the window and, despite the fact that it was giving it everything it had and despite being so close to reaching its goal... failed miserably.

Just 5 feet in another direction would have made all the difference.

I'm sure you get the moral of the story but let me spell it out for you just in case...

If you think that working harder is going to get you what you want, you're probably wrong (unless you're really lazy already). If that were true then builders, scaffolders and any number of manual workers would be millionaires, right?

Hard work can only ever get you so far.

You've got to work smart.

You've got to look for a strategy that works and USE it rather than dogmatically sticking to one that you've become accustomed to or, like that fly, you'll end up on your back, legs in the air with nothing to show for all your time, all your efforts, all your money.

Only YOU know if your strategy is right or not.

If you're consistently achieving more, earning more and having more of the lifestyle that you always dreamed of then your strategy works. Keep using it and yes, in this case, work harder at perfecting it.

If, on the other hand, you're struggling with your income, your expenses, your time, your relationships and your health then there's no ifs or buts about it, your strategy is plain wrong.

Stop trying to make it work on muscle alone. Working harder won't get you what you want. Quit what doesn't work and start over.

So, c'mon then, what's NOT working for you? Identifying it is the starting step to change, so spill the beans : )

I have learned...

I was recently asked in another community that I run, what has my experience of life, success and failure taught me so far.

Here's my answer!

Experience has taught me...

...that the person DOING stuff will always outperform the person reading about and studying stuff.

...that excitement isn't enough to guarantee success. We all get excited about our decisions at the start but that soon fades.

...that passion for what you do is an important factor but still doesn't guarantee success. Passions can and do change during your life. Think of all the boyfriends/girlfriends you loved when you were growing up. Think about the sports you loved to play. You were passionate about them then but do you still feel the same way now?

...that PURPOSE is the most important factor in guaranteeing success. If you have a big enough purpose you can and will overcome everything before you.

...that your background (regardless of whether you consider it good or bad) is irrelevant to determining the potential of the person staring at you from the mirror right now. You have in every moment of your life the same potential as everyone else to steer a new course, learn a new skill, start a new project, the only difference between you and the successful people you admire most is that they've already done it.

...that success loves speed.

...that those who limit their actions based upon their current circumstances are likely to remain that way forever.

...that everyone wants an extraordinary life but few are willing to do anything extra to the ordinary actions that most people engage in.

...that the things we fear most can only be overcome by action. Thinking 'what if' changes nothing.

...that you should earn money to live the life you dream of not live to earn money.

...that money is a tool. Use it that way!

...that you can always get back any money you've 'lost' but you can't say the same about time.

...that we are only as valuable in monetary terms as the service we render to others. Want to earn more? Give more service, then more, then more.

...that you can't out-give the universe. Try it and you always get more back... with interest!

...that marketing is nothing more than building relationships.

...that good relationships (including family and friendships) are more important than anything else you could ever acquire in life.

...that telling the truth will make you far happier and more successful than telling lies or exaggerating.

...that if in doubt, you should give more.

..that even when you think you've given everything, you still have more to give. So give it!

...that it's faster and more profitable to learn from others who have already achieved what you want than going it alone.

...that failure is both likely and probable. Deal with it.

...that every failure, even the painful ones, is teaching you something you need to learn. So learn and get to succeeding already!

...that quitting is only failure when you still want the thing you're quitting on. At any other time, quitting is the SMART course of action.

...that true success comes from knowing what you want and then pursuing it without getting caught up in the 'thick of thin things'.

...that you won't realise how good you are at what you do until everybody else has noticed.

...that when you 'make it' some people will love you, some will hate you and the vast majority won't even know you exist. No change from where you are right now really : )

...that everything I've written here could be wrong but, like you, I'm still learning and can re-invent myself tomorrow and make good on my failings : )

When Should You Start Your Goals?

Well, I promised I'd be back 'tomorrow' and it's been a week.

A family emergency got in the way and I've been offline all week but I'm finally back with another (hopefully) thought provoking message to help you achieve your goals faster : )

Today I want to answer one of the MAJOR questions I always seem to receive about achieving goals.

"When Should I Begin?"

Believe it or not, it's a really common question!

People are of the belief that there is some special 'buildup' they have to go through in order to achieve what they want or that they have to 'prepare' or 'get ready' or have all their ducks in a row before they can finally go after what they want.

They tell themselves they'll start to pursue their goals...

...next week
...next year
...when the kids get out of school
...when the kids go back to school
...when there is more time
...when things settle down
...when there are less bills
...when there is more money
...when the moment it right

And all the while they delay the pursuit of those things that would make them happiest because of... something. Some 'reason' for why they couldn't possibly go after their goals right here, right now.

So here's my answer.

(I think you know it already) : )

Start right here, right now with whatever resources you have at your disposal to build the life that you most dream about having.

You see, you can carry on dreaming about the things you want or you can do something about them.

You can let the daily routine of your current life run the show or you can make the changes you want to see.

You can keep putting off and delaying your happiness until 'someday' or you can begin doing the things you know you are capable of doing TODAY!

The choice is yours.

You have the power to choose.

You see, it's all too easy to fall into the same old routine of saying to yourself 'someday I'll do it but right now I just have too much on my plate'.The truth is, you will ALWAYS have tons of things to do, tons of people to see, tons of places to go, chores to be done and bills to be paid.

That's life for us all, right?

But if you don't at least START building the life of your dreams, regardless of how busy, tired, stressed, broke you are then you stand zero chance of ever getting there don't you?

So start today my friends.

Start today.

You don't have to do much. You don't have to change the world in an afternoon. Just change one thing. Do one thing different to how you did it yesterday and you've begun to move your life on a different course. This is the REAL 'secret' of goal achievement.

It's taking action.

But you knew this already, right? : )

Was The Secret Wrong About Goal Achievement?

Have you seen the movie The Secret?

If you have you'll know that it practically became the goal-achievement 'bible' overnight due to it's very simple, yet very powerful message about how you can be, do and have practically anything in life that you want as long as you do one or two key things.

They are:

1. Think about what you want on a regular basis
2. Think about it positively

That was it really. That was the 'secret' of The Secret!

Now, I'm not knocking this at all, far from it. First off, most people (myself included) can be really unfocused and unclear about what they want and spending any time focusing has got to be really beneficial, right?

And thinking positive, well, that's just obvious isn't it? After all, going through life with a dark cloud over your head is not really going to help you feel good about even STARTING your goals, let alone achieving them is it?

So I've no real problems with the advice that The Secret shares, it makes sense and, truth be told, thousands of people have already gone on to achieve great things as a result of following this simple advice, but again, there are a lot of people who couldn't seem to make it work for them and are now dismissive of the who goal achievement 'thing'.

Maybe you're one of them?

I certainly used to be.

I had already tried the whole positive thinking thing and holding my goals uppermost in my thoughts but still, the bills piled up and the same old hassles that were always in my life before were still there so I did what most people would do. I gave up the whole goal-setting thing as a waste of time and, for a time at least, focused on plain old fashioned hard work.

And it was just that.

HARD work!

Sure, I got results after a fashion but the work I put in always seemed to be greater than the results I'd get back. I know you know that feeling!

Then one day in the shower it hit me.

Most of what I'd been told about goal achievement was wrong!

In fact, I suddenly realised that although it was a nice sentiment, thoughts DON'T become things, but rather, they can become things if they're used correctly, but that thoughts themselves are pretty powerless.

I figured that that if thoughts really did automatically become things
then most teenage boys would materialise pretty young girls into their bedrooms. After all, this is what's on their minds most of the time, right? : )

Sounds funny, I know, but if you think about it, it's true. After all, if thinking clearly of something that's important to you, holding it in your mind and thinking about it a lot works to bring goals to life, then it should work, right?

The MAGIC Hundred Goal Achievement Program

And as to thinking positive...

I'd always been told that thinking positive was a critical step to making your goals come to life, but again I realised that this couldn't really be true. After all, if being positive made your goals come to life you should be able to sit in the middle of a busy road, smile and say 'I won't get hit, I won't get hit, I won't get hit" and sure enough, all the trucks will completely miss you.

Not a strategy that I think I'd like to try : )

The MAGIC Hundred Goal Achievement Program

It all makes sense doesn't it?

The idea that you can't just put on a happy face, think about your goals and have them come to life?

I think so anyway : )

So what's the real 'secret' to goal achievement?

Well, I guess it's simply that there isn't one. Not as in one hidden thing that once exposed will bring your goals to life. It's more a case of having a strategy that is proven to work rather than relying on hope or wishful thinking.

What's the strategy?

It's coming... I promise!

I'll tell you tomorrow : )

The Myth Of The Balanced Life... And How It Stops You From Achieving Your Goals

the magic hundred - the fastest goal achievement program on the planet
The Questions I've been receiving lately about how to achieve more of your goals even faster have been great!

So many excellent questions have been asked that I'm sure I'll be answering them for ages to come : )

Today's question is excellent...

"Dax, thanks so much for sharing your time and insights. My big question is how you create a sustainable life/routines/etc. where you're moving towards your goals without burning out. I've been following your program and "failing forward" but it happens in fits and starts."


My Answer...

Hey Charlie

I love this question!

I think it’s so important to understand how life ‘fits’ into our goals as most people give themselves a really hard time in this area.

I think it stems from the ‘work/life balance’ myth that says we’re supposed to strive for balance in all areas of our lives.
I couldn’t disagree more!

You see, when you try an balance work with home, income with outgoings, letting your hair down with following the big plans you’ve laid out for yourself, you are, in effect, pulling opposite ends of the same rope and, well, going nowhere.
Life, I believe, is not so much about balance. It’s about integration.

Just like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle must fit together in order to reveal the whole picture, so too do aspects of our own lives have to integrate and fit with the other pieces of our ‘life puzzle’.

The best way to do that, regardless of what you’ve been told, is not to seek balance but to allow different parts of who you are to have their ‘time in the sun’ so to speak.

I like to think of us as all being slightly schizophrenic. Weird, I know, but it serves to help me to understand this better.
Let me use myself a an example;

I’m a Dad.
I’m husband.
I’m a son.
I’m a brother.
I’m a writer.
I’m an entrepreneur.
I’m a fitness coach.
I’m an inspirational speaker.
I’m a journalist.
I’m an athlete.
I’m an adventurer.
And I’m so much more besides!

(So are you!!)

Now, it’s pretty easy to see how each of my personalities has different needs. My needs as a father are different to my needs as a husband and different again to my needs as an entrepreneur. If I try to ‘balance’ these instead of integrate them I make zero improvement in any area as each one has a different set of needs.

The dad in me needs to be home to do more with my kids, the entrepreneur needs me to travel more, work longer hours, write, speak and more.

If I balance the 2, then my work doesn’t grow and my family quality improves only slightly (if at all).

However, if I follow the integration idea then I ‘allow’ myself the freedom to put my life out of balance for specific periods of time to achieve certain goals. For example, I work harder than normal and for longer hours than normal for 6 weeks whilst bringing a new project to life. The new project brings me greater income and that new income is spent on…

…my family, with whom I now take a month off to travel the world and see interesting things.

Can you see how the integration model allows for more results in your life?

Understanding that the imbalance is where the results come from is the key to success, I believe, and should not only actively pursue an imbalanced life, but go further and try to create the imbalances of our own choosing.

The beauty of this is that you never burn out. You have new targets and new inspirations and new goals to work on all the time and you’re using the imbalances in a positive, constructive and guilt-free way.

Everybody wins : )

Finding The Inspiration To Achieve Your Goals

It looks like this 'ask Dax' series is proving pretty popular. I'm getting so many emails in my inbox at the moment that I'm really jammed up. So I'm giving priority to mails that are posted here on the blog. (This is a polite way of saying 'thank you so much for trusting me with your question but please, can you not fill my email inbox up as I literally can't read any of my mails) : )

Today's question comes from David and it's a very common one that I hear way way too often.

Read on...


My biggest problem is believing change is possible and that all the positive words have real substance. I'm in my 50s and have been through a lot. When in my late teens I got hooked on motivational books and have read lots of them: Napoleon Hill, Zig Zigler, Brian Tracy, etc etc etc. I did Tony Robbins 30 day Personal Power program, etc. etc. etc. After getting all pumped up I really believed I could conquer anything I would set my mind on.

I have tried many times to act on my dreams but have been knocked down so many times I have lost count. I truly hate what my life has been. I'm just struggling to survive. Now that I am past my prime please tell me how I can believe I will ever have anything other than what fate has given me. Where can I find the energy, the focus, the drive to achieve something new?

I apologize that it's not just 2 short questions, but that's where I'm at. It's just not connecting this time. How can I believe in dreams once again?"


My Answer...

Hi David,

thanks so much for your question. It's an interesting on and one that I think many of my readers will be glad you asked.

First off, it's interesting to hear you talk of all the books you've read as these are amongst MY favourite books and programs too and have definitely shaped my life over the years. I recognise that feeling of being 'pumped up' by reading something motivating and the feeling of 'YES! I CAN DO IT!'

I also recognise the 'deflated' feeling that we often get after reading material like this too. After thinking of all the possibilities and then looking at the actual nuts and bolts realities of our lives, it can often feel like we're even worse off than before... if we let ourselves.

You see, as great as any book or motivational program or seminar is, all they can really offer is motivation and nothing more.

Motivation is an extrinsic factor, meaning that it comes from outside of us and relies on someone giving us the support, the information or simply the feel-good-factor to get up and get on. There's nothing wrong with this, of course, but motivation in and of itself is weak and cannot be relied upon for success.

After all, if it requires the physical presence of someone/something else to make you want to take action, then whenever that person or thing is not there for you... you won't!

So motivation is weak.

Inspiration, on the other hand, is something entirely different.

Inspiration is intrinsic. It comes from within. It's the purpose, power and passion that YOU have already, brought to the fore and focused with laser-like precision onto your goals. With inspiration, you never need to worry about whether or not others believe in you, whether or not you've failed in the past or whether or not there's someone to guide and support you.

When you're inspired, none of this matters.

YOU become the energy source for your goals.

This is REALLY empowering as it now puts YOU in the driving seat of your life again.

So, how do you get inspired?

It's easier than you think!

First, be greatful.

Seriously, take stock of what's gone well for you in life. The experiences you've had, the people you've met, the places you've travelled, the things you've done. Be thankful for it all.

It's important to do this because inspiration seldom (if ever) occurs when you're feeling bitter, resentful and negative about life and yet, seems to find its way to us easily when we feel positive, happy and upbeat.

So literally write a list of everything you have to be thankful of.


Second, focus on what you want. What you REALLY want in your life.

The things you want to be, the things you want to do, the things you want to have?

Write them ALL down. Every single thing that comes to mind. The big, the small, the realistic and the ridiculous.

You see, inspiration isn't a logical thing. It's a heart thing. A feeling. An emotion.

So writing your goals down is about how they will make you feel if they came true. How they would change how you feel about life and yourself.

Interestingly, you don't even have to accomplish them to make yourself inspired. The very act of acknowledging them and starting the ball rolling on seeking them out is enough to start your own inspiration.

Third, play 'What If?'

'What if' is a great game!

What if you got that job?

What if you made that money?

What if you bought that house?

What if you started that company?

What if you wrote that book?

What if you started that charity?

What if is amazing. It opens you up to possibilities that weren't there before and, in doing so, inspires you.

The great thing about what if is that you can stretch it out as far as you like and gain more and more inspiration from it.

What if you started that new business, earned that million dollars a year bought that new house, bought the holiday home in Fiji, retired by 40 and wrote that book? What would like be like then? : )

If you can extrapolate and imagine even a little, you have the power to become inspired and to achieve amazing things. All you have to do is identify the first step and build up from there and you're already changing your life, right?

Finally, for this answer anyway, give back... in advance!

If you know what your 'what if' strategy looks like and you know what you'd like your life to turn out like then you must have a fair idea what you'd do when you finally 'make it' in life. Hopefully that success also means some element of giving back, helping others, contributing, even if only in some small way.

It's only right when you think about it; if you've been allowed to take from the 'pot of life' then it's right and proper that you should put a little back for others too.

So look, instead of waiting for success to happen to you before you give back, try to invent ways to give back in advance.

I've always tried to find ways to give away my knowledge, skills and abilities in the areas of motivation, inspiration and yes, perspiration (my 'day job' is a fitness professional, personal trainer and lecturer in sport and exercise) and have numerous newsletter, blogs, communities, audio recordings, reports and public seminars that I do for for free as part of my own giving back strategy.

Funny thing is though, the more I give away, the more success I seem to attract. I sell more books, audios and mentoring programs BECAUSE I'm putting back into the pot.

How could YOU put back into the pot? Not only is it the 'right thing' to do, but it's profitable too.

The thing is David, (and all) fate has 'given' you nothing. But it hasn't taken from you either.

You're never too young or too old to start pursuing your goals and dreams but the thing is, don't rely on motivation to make them happen. Grab motivation when you can, but don't rely on it.

Instead, use the steps I've laid out above to find inspiration in your life and you'll never have to worry about IF you'll be successful, it'll just be a matter of when : )

I hope this has helped.

Truth, joy and love

How To Fail... and Still Win!


I asked for your biggest 2 questions to do with motivation, success or goal setting and I certainly got a bunch. Not just here but through private messages and emails.

Honestly, I'm stunned at the amount of questions I received here...

Anyway, let's get down to it shall we?

I'm going to try and answer 1-2 questions a day so bear with me whilst I work through them all ok?

The first questions are from Marilyn...

"Hi, Dax:

1. How do I stay focused on my goals if I end up keeping some of them a secret because of a significant other who is very negative and ridiculing? I think I know the answer but I guess I needed a second opinion, Doc. :-)

2. I too have had a Dickensian childhood and was able to overcome a lot of it using only my own inner strength with no support (long story). Having said that, how do I keep from beating myself up when I make a mistake towards one of my steps for a goal or even just keep my get-there-now-itis under control? I know I have the strength and control but sometimes I get a little bit of a war going on - like 1 side is hang in there your almost there, the other - you're too this - too that - not practical - that sort of nonsense.

Thanks a lot Dax for any suggestions."

My Answers

Well Marilyn, as for question 1 and staying focused in the face of ridicule I think you have to do several things.

First, remind yourself that this is about YOU. Not your kids, your husband, your work colleagues or anyone else. You.

You see, you can't do things for other people. You can't do things because of other people and you certainly can't NOT do things because of other people. Not if you hope to be happy anyway.

Abraham Lincoln once said 'you cannot help the poor by becoming one yourself' and I agree. And this goes for much more than money. If you have no belief in yourself, you can't help others to believe. if you have no joy in your life, you cannot help others to find joy in their.

You simply cannot give what you yourself do not have in abundance.

Where am I going with this?


Your job is not to 'win over' or gain the support of your partner. It's nice when that happens but one shouldn't rely on it. Your job is to begin, small at first, then in larger and larger amount, to gain an abundant store of successes in your life. Likewise joy. Likewise happiness. Likewise love.

Find these things wherever you can and build YOUR life to be the shape that YOU want it to be.

Let no-one stop you.

No one.

If sharing your dreams brings you ridicule then don't share them with those that would ridicule you. Share them with like-minded people only. You can find them forums and communities like www.daxmoy.ning.com and others. Find that small spark of your dreams and kindle a small flame from them, then help it grow by sharing them with those who are also pursuing theirs.

In short, get strong. Create a store of your successes. Don't stop.

The truth is, not all people share your dreams. They have their own. It's a shame though when some people, especially those who claim to love and care for us, feel the need to trample on ours.

It hurts. That's natural. We're human.

But still, don't stop.

Never stop.

Your dreams are the reason you're here : )

As for your second question, you WILL make mistakes.

Knowing this should free you.

See, if you KNOW you're going to make mistakes, you can stop worrying about 'whether', 'if' and 'when' and simply pursue you goals and dreams anyway, 'safe' in the knowledge that at some time in the future, you WILL screw up.

Now, isn't that a weight off your mind : )

Instead of looking at mistakes as 'screw ups' or failures, and feeling negative about them, ask yourself "Did I fail forward?"

By this, I mean, ask yourself "Even though I failed in relation to the target I set, am I closer to my goal now than I was before I started out on this goal?" If the answer is yes, then you should seek as many opportunities to fail as possible, take more action, take more 'risks' for every 'trip', every stumble, every fall is bringing you ever closer to your ultimate goal.

It's a lot faster than playing it safe and NOT setting out at all for fear of failure, right?

I always tell people that ask me (and I mean it) that I'm the biggest failure I know.

And I don't feel negative about it. In fact, I feel positive!

You see, I've failed more things than anyone else I've ever met personally, but only because I attempt more things than anyone else I've ever met personally : )

Yet, with each failure, I learn more, my abilities grow, my confidence grows and I add to my skills and knowledge. In short, I fail forward.

Stop fearing failure Marilyn (and everyone) and simply pursue what you want in the knowledge that, at some point, you'll fall flat on your face.

At that point, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start over.

Ask Your Questions!

I've a question for you.

If you could ask me anything you wanted to know about
achieving your goals, no matter how big or small, what would
you ask?

What if you could ask me any TWO questions... On ANYTHING related
to the success you most dream of?

That's what I'm offering all of my readers today.

Just post your 2 questions about goal achievement or success in the comments section below and I'll do my best to answer them in the coming days.

Gon on, post away! : )

The Creed Review... and a challenge!

Last year I published my personal creed. The rules I try to live my life by, my beliefs, my aspirations. The standards I try to uphold for myself in all things at all times.

Of course, I often fail to reach my standards.

I get upset.

I get angry.

I think ill of people or judge them.

If we're honest, we all do, right?

But my creed is what I use to measure how far off track I am and, ultimately, what will quickly and surely bring me back into line with my purpose, vision and goals.

I've taught the personal creed exercise to hundreds of people and all of them have agreed that having and referring to their creed statements on a regular basis has made a HUGE difference in their lives.

I've placed mine below again for your review but also added a few others from friends of mine who have completed the process too.

Use them to give you inspiration to create your own.

A video would be great as you can put your own music to it and even use it as a form of meditation/inspiration, but a written one works well too.

Create your creed statement today and I promise you you'll start to see some very real success manifest in your life... and fast!

Give it a go!

Truth, joy and love

The Warrior, The Mountain and The Monk

For some reason I felt compelled to write this story today. I hope you
enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it : ) - Dax

The warrior sat on a mound of stones atop the great mountain, his head in his hands and his chest still heaving with the exertion of the last stage of his climb.

His black hair, now flecked with grey, clung to his face just as his clothing stuck to his body from the combination of the perspiration that resulted from his recent efforts as well as the ever-present fog that had dogged his steps since he first began his ascent of the sacred mountain many days before.

Chain mail once as bright and shiny as a mirror was now caked in grime and dirt as well as patches of bright orange rust from the lack of the cleaning and oiling to which it was accustomed and his sword, whilst still serviceable showed signs that it had not been cared for for several days.

The warrior laughed inwardly as he thought about how his old swordmaster used to punish him for even the slightest speck of dust on his uniform and more severely still when his arms and armour were not properly cared for. He still recalled the long hours spent marching drill as punishment or, worse yet, cleaning out the latrines when his transgressions against the warriors code were deemed great.

If the swordmaster could see him now...

Thinking of the old man suddenly reminded the warrior of his quest and of the struggles and deprivations he'd endured and, suddenly as it had come, the faint smile that had creased face for the briefest instant was lost and replaced by the frown that had taken up residence a long time hence.

It hadn't always been this way, he reminded himself.

When he had set out on this quest those long years ago, he and his companions, warriors all, had been driven by an almost child-like excitement and sense of fun and adventure that seemed to give them boundless energy and focus. But that excitement had soon worn off.

Within a matter of weeks, three of his companions had been lost to rivers whose banks had swelled with the great flood and two more, fearful of the wrath of the water Gods, chose to return home, justifying their leaving by stating that it was better to live in a castle than die in the wilderness.

"Cowards" he said aloud to himself, still scornful and angry at the memory of their abandoning the quest so soon.

The warrior had remained steadfast and said to the others "We will continue with our quest for if we turn back then our friends have died for naught". His companions, in full agreement, rode on.

Months passed and three more companions were lost, this time to bandits and brigands who had lain in ambush to take by force that which they could not earn by honest labour. They had been routed by the warrior and his men yet still, the cost of victory had been a high one.

Two of his men said "We will go no further. We will return the bodies of the fallen to their loved ones back home and be thankful that our folly has allowed us to come so far and experience so much without harm to ourselves" and with that, they turned and left.

The warrior looked at his remaining men, now so few in number and said "We shall persevere, for to have come so far and risked so much and paid such a dear price, it makes no sense to abandon our quest and return home". His companions, in full agreement, rode on.

A year passed and at last they came upon a prosperous city where the streets were paved with gold and the people were dressed in cloth of the finest weave. Three more men the warrior lost to the quest when they decided to stay and build new lives for themselves in this paradise far from home and unlike any they had ever dreamed of.

"We will stay and raise families here" they said "for back home we were merely warriors at our lords pleasure, yet here we shall live like kings"

The warrior spoke then saying "True, as kings in riches and wealth ye shall be, yet knowing that you abandoned your true quest, I fear that you shall never know the true riches afforded only to those who finish what they start"

"We few shall continue, for we know that what lies before us is of greater value than all we have seen thus far combined" and saying so, the warrior and his remaining companions rode on.

A decade passed and the warrior now found himself utterly alone. His last companions had long since abandoned their quest and returned home leaving him to face the remainder of the journey and the hardship it entailed in silent misery.

Now, sitting atop this fog enshrouded mountain peak in total solitude, cold, wet, hungry and broken in both body and spirit the warrior considered his long quest and asked himself "Was it all worth it?"

And inside his own head the answer came, loud and clear.


The silent response echoed off the walls of his own mind until suddenly and completely unbidden the warrior found tears streaming from eyes swollen with moisture, followed by a raising of his broad shoulders into what he would eventually come to recognise as a sob, something he had not done since since he was a young child at his mothers knee.

"What a fool I have been" he declared to himself, then louder, shouting at the mountain that had finally broken his spirit and his heart. "WHAT A DAMNED FOOL I'VE BEEN!"

As he heard his curses echo through the valley below he became aware of a movement and then the briefest flash of orange presented itself a short distance away and beneath him on the stone strewn track, yet to this battle hardened warrior who had survived numerous violent encounters since leaving home, it was enough to bring every fibre of his being to full alertness.

As he reached for the sword at his belt and old yet kindly voice rang out of the fog. "Stay your hand my son, for we have come not to fight but to rejoice at your arrival for it has been long in coming"

Taken aback by the curious comment the warrior froze, his hand scant inches from the weapon, and peered into the thick impenetrable fog for a hint as to where the speaker may be. Another flash of orange, a blur of movement and mere seconds later there stood before him a group of orange clad monks with smiles that spread from ear to ear and a countenance that could only be described as joyful.

At the fore stood a monk, far older than the others with brown, weather beaten and parchment-thin skin that was wrinkled beyond belief yet sporting a smile that was bigger and warmer than any that the warrior could remember having seen in his entire life. Striding purposefully up to the warrior who was a full two heads taller than he, the old man took him in an embrace of genuine joy and care and said in a voice warm yet powerful and strong at the same time "Welcome to the sacred mountain, my son. We have been expecting you"

The warrior said nothing, yet, suddenly self conscious of the tears still running down his cheeks, raised a hand to wipe them away in a manner that, he hoped, would serve to disguise his moment of weakness.

Taking a small step backward yet remaining in physical contact with the tall warrior, the old man placed his hand on the bigger man's shoulder and stared into his eyes with a gaze that was at once gentler and yet more powerful than anything he had ever experienced before and immediately the warrior was aware that he stood in the presence of one who had peered into the soul of the world and had found enlightenment and peace as a result.

"Today is a joyous day, my son, and yet you stand here with tears of grief and sadness running down your face and shouting words of anger at the world. Your bitterness, anger and resentment shows clear to all who have eyes to see, yet now, after all these years, you stand at the threshold of your quest's completion.

Why does your heart ache so?"

The warrior closed his eyes, inhaled deeply then let out a sigh so deep and wearisome that even the smiles of the old man and his younger companions seemed to falter a little.

At last he spoke and, as he did so, he told of his journey and that of his companions, of the struggles they had faced, of the losses they had endured and of the pain, suffering, humiliation and feelings of despair that, finally and alone, only he was left to endure.

"And during all this" he said "I kept myself true to my quest because I believed that the soul of the world would reveal itself and bestow upon me its blessed bounty of peace, happiness and wisdom."

"I was a fool" he said "for now, here atop this highest of all mountains I see that no such prize exists and that this peak is nothing more than granite, flint and cold stone. I have wasted my life in search of a treasure that does not exist and seen good friends die as a result of my folly" The last he said quietly, almost a whisper as though he were too ashamed to say the words aloud.

The old man laughed a merry laugh and, with smiling eyes twinkling with good humor said to the warrior "My son, you have travelled long, you have travelled far and you have experienced much since you have left your home. Some of it you have called good, some you have called bad and much of it far more difficult and testing than you ever imagined it would be when you set out with your youthful excitement so many years ago.

You have learned much, my son, but though your eyes have gazed upon much that few men will ever see, you have yet to recognise the power, purpose or potential of any of it.

In focusing only on reaching this holy place you have missed many of the wonders and miracles that the soul of the world was trying to show you, choosing instead to fill your heart with bitterness and regret for what life has delivered unto you"

"Ha!" said the warrior contemptuously "You seem a kindly and good intentioned old man but you are wrong!"

"Long have I been on this path and much have I seen, it's true, but hardly any would qualify as wonders and miracles and much, as I have already told you, would be better described as disaster and tragedy" Then quietly, almost to himself he added "I see no miracle in watching good friends die or give up in despair"

"My son," said the old man, smiling once again "you see no miracles because you have not truly looked for them and yet, still, the miracles were present all along"

"Was it not a miracle that the soul of the world saw fit to bless you with friends who believed in you and trusted you to share in your adventure, even if only for a short time?"

"Was it not a miracle that you were strong enough and skilled enough to swim the swollen rivers that carried the spirit of your brothers home to the kingdom of the mothers and fathers and a miracle again that, in doing so, you learned never to repeat their mistakes when faced with nature's awesome power several times throughout your quest?"

"The warrior looked up, shocked "How..."

Holding up a wrinkled hand for silence, the old monk continued "Were you not in the presence of a miracle when your strength and skill with a blade saved the lives of your companions and yourself during more battles than you can remember and yet another still that you were present at the passing of those you loved, easing them in their passage to the next world?"

"Could you not sense the soul of the world at work when your closest friends, those who you thought had abandoned you, were blessed with the sure and certain knowledge that their own quests were over and that, at last, they could rest and enjoy life's plentiful bounty?"

"And, if not a miracle, how can you describe how your last remaining companions finally discovered that their own quests would be complete only once they arrived safely back home and in the arms of the families that love them?"

"But... this mountain" stammered the warrior, now less sure of himself and his experiences as he had been mere moments before "It is supposed to be a place of miracle and wonder yet I see none. Where are the miracles here, old man? For I see only rock and shale and this blasted fog, yet nothing to explain why I should have been called to walk this long, lonely path for these long years and why I needed to endure so much to get here "

The old man smiled an indulgent smile, placed his hand back upon the warrior's shoulder and said patiently, as if talking to a child "The miracles you have sought have been there for you to see from the very moment you stepped foot onto the mountain yet you were so caught up in your woes that you could not recognise them to register their presence"

"IMPOSSIBLE!" protested the warrior "I passed no wonders. I saw nothing special!"

"You never saw the field of dreams?" asked the old man "The yellow gold flowers there are beautiful, and you could have rested there a while and spoken to your lost companions and learned that they were happy and safe with the mothers and father but, you saw it not because your head was hung with grief and your mind clouded with dark thoughts over your loss"

The old man waved a hand and the fog shimmered then disappeared revealing a bright golden field at the foot of the mountain far below, and right next to the very path that the warrior had trodden.

His eyes widened and he went as if about to speak, but the old man continued "You never saw the pool of healing? Its warm, crystal clear waters could have served to rejuvenate you in both body and mind yet your eyes were cast to the floor and you were cursing the very stones under your feet for an imagined conspiracy to trip you and so you walked right on by and never noticed a thing"

Once again, he waved his hand and once again the fog parted parted to reveal a turquoise pool of stunning beauty situated halfway up the mountain and within a mere arm's length from the path he had climbed.

"And here, atop this great peak at the roof of the world, did you not see the mirror of wisdom? Had you but looked you would have found a way to learn secrets known only to the soul of the world and found a way to ever lasting peace. Yet instead, you placed your attentions in the past and chose to pick at the scabs of wounds that should have long since healed and, in doing so, missed it entirely."

One last time the old man waved his hand and the dense fog that shrouded the mountain top faded, slowly at first and then faster until finally it was gone altogether.

The warrior looked around the mountaintop on what was now a beautiful, sunny and warm summers day and saw, to his amazement, that not 3 yards from where he stood was a simple yet elegant mirror that stood twice as tall as and shwing a reflection of the rugged peak itself.

"How could I have missed so much?" said the now bemused warrior as he took in the majestic views from his high vantage point.

The old man smiled "It is the nature of men" he said "to see every obstacle they encounter as something set to rob them of what they seek when, in reality, each obstacle is nothing more than a a chance to decide upon the true value of what you are seeking. If worth much you will breach the obstacle, if little, why then, you will turn back.

It is not good. It is not bad. It just is."

The warrior felt truth in the old man's words and suddenly, as if a giant hand had reached into the very core of his being, a tremendous weight was lifted from his heart.

The old man continued "It is the nature of men to see each struggle that they engage in as a battle that someone else must lose in order that they may win when, in truth, the struggle is nothing more than conditioning to strengthen us for what we must yet endure.

As you have had to exercise your arm and shoulders every day in order to wield your great sword with strength and skill in combat, so too have you been given the opportunity to gain the strength of body, mind and spirit required to reach this sacred place"

The warrior smiled as he thought of all the struggles that had been visited upon him and yet how much stronger he was now than he had been at the start of this great quest. He realised that whilst he had chosen to focus on his suffering for so long, that joy had never been very far from him and he he had only to have bothered to look to have seen it with his own eyes.

"I've been a fool"
he said with a smile and, as he did so, he felt that great hand reach inside once more and he physically staggered as the burden of sadness that he had carried for so long was finally lifted from him.

Realising what the warrior was going through and experiencing, the old man smiled and continued with his lesson "It is the nature of men to experience fear upon thinking of what may or may not become in the future and to experience resentment when that future does not turn out as planned or hoped for. Yet with each fear comes the opportunity to demonstrate faith and belief in what may yet come to be and with each resentment the opportunity to demonstrate gratitude for the gifts already bestowed.

This is the way of love"
said the old man, still smiling.

"Love" repeated the warrior and, as he did so, he recognised yet more truth coming from the old man. "No, not from" he corrected himself "through" for it was clear now that the soul of the world was speaking with him now through the spirit and body of the old man before him.

Suddenly thankful of the opportunity to experience and overcome each and every fear that had visited upon him since leaving home, the warrior became aware of its opposite; a deep and powerful love of life and a thankfulness that threatened to overwhelm him completely with tears of the purest joy.

And at last, as the final burden of fear left him, the warrior, after years of journeying, fighting, struggling and heartache found his miracle...

...and realised, just as the old man had said, it had been with him all the time had he but looked for it.

He turned to the old man with fresh tears rolling down his cheeks and a smile of the greatest joy and saw that the old man was now bowing from the waist with his hands pressed together before his face.

"Rak Due Kwam Jing Jai" said the abbot of the temple of the soul of the world to the warrior in a reverent tone that intimated something of significance was being said.

"I'm sorry, I don't understand" replied the warrior.

"It is the name of the miracle that you have sought for so long and that which you have just experienced" said the old man.

"It means 'truth, joy and love' and with it you now possess the answer to every question you could ever ask and the solution to every problem you could ever face"

The warrior turned to face the great mirror that stood behind him and peered at a reflection years younger than the one he had seen that morning in the reflection of the stream as he bathed. Trying his mouth around the words the abbot had uttered just moments before, the warrior said aloud "Rak Due Kwam Jing Jai" and as he did so he finally understood... everything!

At that moment the man, now no longer a warrior, for he had no need to be, did something that he hadn't done for more than ten long years.

He laughed.

A deep, hearty, joyous laugh full of love and gratitude.

And the soul of the world smiled.

For my family, who I love with all my heart and also for
anyone who needs reminding that their quest is about
more than climbing the mountain.

Enjoy the journey!

Truth, joy and love
