Why do we accept failure so easily?
Very few people are honest enough to openly talk about what
they want. Social pressure and long held beliefs tell us that wanting more is
greedy, but there is a silent underground of achievers out there who do talk
about wanting more, and within this faction there are two camps. Those that ‘do’, and those that ‘talk!’
Those that do, not only achieve toward their goals, but many
also do their best within reason to inspire and motivate those who talk to come
across to the doing camp!
Failing is easy. Failing is comfortable and more often than not this is how the conversation goes!
People are not equal! It may seem incorrect to say but we’re not. Adding to that all clients are also … not equal! Clients learn in different ways, and also have different motivations which have drastic impacts on their individual outcomes.
However in this case—client equality and their motivations really don’t matter, because in this post we’re really looking at when most learning occurs, not how!

The gross value
Previously I asked the question of how much it takes to
retire early. This same question also is how much it takes to become
There were a range of answers all the way from a retirement
pension that only provides $24,268.40 per year, through to a real case where
the money target was $384,000 per year.
Using average figures along with a multiplier of 2.5 I
rounded up to come up with a number of $150,000 per year net.
So what does $150,000 look like?
What is retirement?
When most people think of retirement the first thing people tend to think about is the freedom that comes with not having to go to work each and every day. Taking this further the vast majority of people ‘want’ to retire early, but very few dare to explore the options available to make the dream a reality, until time is heavily against them.
But retirement usually has a few common factors namely, having enough money available to support their quality of life without needing to work for more.
