The dictionary defines Passion as an intense emotion, a compelling enthusiasm and thus it follows almost naturally that it also becomes Enjoyment too.

A friend asked me the other day when we were chatting about the 2 years I spent in Les Mis in London, how did we manage to perform the same thing night after night indeed 8 times a week.

And bottom line, it came down to Passion & Enjoyment….combined with a degree of professionalism too. Certainly, in those days (1990/91) Les Mis was attracting full houses as it probably still does in London at the marginally smaller  Queens Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue.

Twenty Five years ago….Thirty years since it opened…!!!

And interestingly, from the front of house front of the theatre, we can see ‘Dream the Dream’…

And that has huge resonance here too.

Dream YOUR Dream, pursue it with Passion & Enjoyment. And if you’re fortunate, you achieve something in life that few people do !!!

Which leads onto the question….

Is your life full of PASSION ????

Loved ones aside (though not exempt of course), do you have a passion for your work, career, day to day activity ???

And if not WHY NOT ??? If you do not leap out of bed to face every day then….???

I know the routine of 9-5 Monday – Friday but even when I was in that scene, I did it all with a PASSION.

Anything less and it’s DRUDGERY !!!

It’s why I’m thrilled to have been led in the direction of

SFM (Six Figure Mentors) & DEA (Digital Experts Academy).

The training is second to none. It’s with people who have been there done it, or ARE THERE, DOING IT more especially. 1,000+ like minded people all around the world who are changing their lives every day, from helping others to change their lives similarly, to writing blogs like this and sending email to new friends and associates, to building their own Online Businesses and earning HUGE amounts of commissions in the doing.

You might think that to join SFM and/or DEA is a large amount of money….with monthly subscriptions too…but I‘ve yet to meet or come across any member who thinks this. Because and not only because, once a member, there is SO MUCH MORE to be discovered in what we call the ‘Back Office’.

There is additional – & extensive – training that will keep you occupied for days if not weeks.

Every night of the week there are further training webinars – depending on where you are & what time zone you maybe in, will dictate what time for you.

Webinars on Marketing by founding members who know the drill, who are earning millions in the process. It’s all there for the taking and for what is served up, the monthly subscription is nothing at all….and especially so considering the many income streams that can result given your interest and motivation and desire to work it.

There are countless websites on the Net and many are scams. Many are legitimate for increasing your knowledge & income but, by far, this is the best. Digital marketing any item or product of your choosing – or simply being an affiliate marketer for SFM / DEA.

We’re here to assist you to a life changing activity.

Just call when you’re ready…..!!!

I guess if you’re reading this then it maybe applicable to you too given that you’ve watched or are watching the 7 videos from Stuart Ross &/or Jay Kubassek.

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Dvorak

Beethoven

Anne-Sophie Mutter

Marilyn Horne

Glenda Jackson

Do any of the above tick your boxes ???

Friday last I attended the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall for a concert with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Guest Soloist – Anne-Sophie Mutter – violin virtuoso….and last night listened to the direct broadcast on Classic FM as THAT is how great the concert was and became almost essential over anything else on offer….my football team having bowed out last week !!!

“Our Fate lies not in the Stars, but in ourselves.”

– Shakespeare –

This, one of Ms Mutter’s comments early in and the interview recorded back in 2014 upon her second visit to Australia. It strikes as a good life ethic.

Her program was all Dvorak, opening with the short but beautiful Romance in F minor Op 11., followed by the Concerto in A minor Op 53 – 3 movements – Allegro ma non troppo, Adagio ma non troppo, Allegro giocoso, ma non troppo. I list the titles of the 3 movements of the Symphony because as, effectively a non musician, they amuse me. Because they mean to be played fast, but not too fast, Slow but not too slow, Playful but not too playful…I mean seriously YOU work it out !!! But it does follow In Search of Excellence !!

But I guess that’s for the Conductor and orchestra members to work out. And work out they did as did Ms Mutter. All to extraordinary and rapturous applause thereafter. As a workout, playing the violin for just on an hour full on, must have been a workout in itself as I remarked in the Interval, my arms were aching from applause of 5 or so minutes much less playing a violin for 60 minutes full on.

Now I must tell you I am no aficionado – I just like classical music and especially as played at this concert.

The second half was Beethoven’s EROICA or Symphony No 3 in E flat Op 55. It was magnificent !! Conductor was a young Czech ‘athlete’ who looked & moved like an expert on the podium and without a score in front of him which I guess only underlined his brilliance (and excellence) – any conductor worth his baton probably knows the EROICA from memory anyway. And like Ms Mutter, was not unpleasant on the eye. His reading of the Beethoven was (I found) terrific, all of which was somewhat allegro ma non troppo.

And thus today I pondered on that Shakespeare quote and my enjoyment of the concert. And took me back to years earlier and some of the higher moments I’ve experienced.

When I was in Les Mis (West End) 1990/91 I had the good fortune to meet and become friends with the amazing Marilyn Horne (read more about her) per favour Mario Frangoulis, the Enjolras and at the time the Maria Callas scholarship holder, brought me to his dressing room to meet La Horne. Her career dubs her as a Prima Donna, to meet her is to experience anything but a Prima Donna. But then I’ve found the GREAT ones have no need for Prima donnerish behaviour nor attitudes….as with Anne-Sophie Mutter if you’re able to access the interview mentioned above. It was back in the early 90’s (1990’s) that I met MH and had several moments thereafter with the great lady. On the occasion of her solo recital at the Royal Opera House when I attended with two mates at the time, and rang in advance to put myself on her ‘guest list’ to allow a visit after the performance. I told my friends Come On let’s go back and ask to meet with Ms Horne and they scoffed but followed.

At the Stage Door, an immense and authoritative stage door man demanded “Can I help you ??” and, having checked the list, and with a huge change in attitude invited us through the door to be escorted through the labyrinth of corridors to La Horne’s dressing room where we joined a queue of approx 30 people waiting. We stood for all of a minute when a lady exited from the dressing room asking for me and when I identified myself we were immediately escorted in….to the chagrin of those ahead in the queue. Ms Horne was so welcoming, she signed all 3 programs, laughed and chatted for several minutes until I begged her excuses as she had many awaiting to greet her. As we walked from the Stage Door to Covent Garden tube, my 2 mates were punching me profusely for having not let on but with full appreciation for the experience.

STARS OF STAGE & SCREEN

And then to rewind many years to shortly after I’d arrived In London and before I got into my first West End musical, I’d taken a job as a receptionist in a Harley Street Medical Clinic of several floors and many medical specialists, one of whom – a Doctor Wilkinson I recall – had a contract with an Insurance Company to medically certify Stars to the film industry prior commencement of their contracts. Charlton Heston, Virginia McKenna, Dirk Bogarde and Glenda Jackson were amongst many I met. With Glenda Jackson, Oscar winner etc etc but as normal as normal can be, she actually spoke into a recording I was making for a friend in Australia to put in the mail….he was bowled over when he received it and heard her very unmistakable voice saying HI GORDON with a couple of minutes of idle chat as well. Prima Donna by profession not by nature.

And so In Search of Excellence….

There are so many cliches, sayings, statements from all sorts of areas reference success, motivation and indeed, continuity. And I suggest that, like me, you – the reader are in tune with the motivation of life in a continual search for excellence, for learning more, for moving forward, for never giving up….

I guess also, it’s why we’re into SFM as a stage of that progression forward, of further development, of assisting others, and being, along with them, better individuals.

The outstanding University of Personal Development.

I believe I might be right.

GREECE, THE GLOBAL ECONOMY & US

GREECE, THE GLOBAL ECONOMY AND US .

JULY, 2015.

By Rex Taylor

I’ve been reading some interesting information surrounding the impending disaster with Greece and the effects that may/will have on the Global Economy and, in particular the Australian scenario. (And let me tell you right from the outset, I’m no financial guru. I’m just your average ‘Joe’ albeit retired.)

It comes from a book by Jim Rickards (google his name) wherein he makes the following observations (and predictions).

You may or may not recall the last Global Financial Crisis at a time when Australia escaped recession & losses predominantly as the Govt of the day enacted an injection to the economy by giving every household an amount of cash to be spent to stimulate the economy. And by all accounts at the time, the formula worked, notwithstanding one or two minor glitches.

The difference between then & now is that Australia was in the middle of the Mining Boom, an abundance of natural resources and was, it is said, a destination for capital.

However, the mining boom is now over, the price of iron ore has halved, resulting in less revenue for the Australian Government etc., and globally, coal is on the way out. And there seems no real fiscal management happening in Australia to protect the economy. Compared you might argue with some of the Scandinavian countries – but that may be the subject of another blog.

Looking at the USA, the four biggest banks on Wall Street are now over 30% larger than in 2007 — and the five largest American banks hold more than HALF of the total banking assets in the United States. That means they’re even more interconnected. Meaning if one fails, the rest will fail too like a series of dominos. Further, the US government has racked up an enormous debt — over US$18 trillion — DOUBLE the amount of debt that was present before the 2008 fiasco. (lifted straight from a review by Jim Rickards)

This man Jim Rickards seems to have a track record second to none and much of the above comes from a preview of his book THE BIG DROP. (again Google it)

“Doom & Gloom? Perhaps . . .”

My point in writing about all this is the need to have a personal insurance or escape plan to prevent from becoming a victim of the predicted impending global financial crisis.

None of us can predict how another Global Financial Crisis may affect us personally. If you are an employee, will your employer & company survive? And if not, should you become a victim and thrown onto the unemployment sector, how will you then maintain your own personal standard of living, mortgage, car payments, education expenses etc etc etc.

Self Employed . . .

To protect ourselves, is the reason we’ve become seriously involved with digital marketing and have started our own online business. With some of the best training available, coaches & mentors who’ve been there, done it, and joining some of the best, like-minded people  that we’ve come across, the organisation we subscribe to is hugely credible, oozes integrity and provides exactly the platform that ensures our safety from external forces that may inflict damage and heartbreak upon millions globally – sooner or later.

If any of the above has ticked your boxes, get in touch for the way to go.

I’M TOO OLD FOR THIS, IT’S TOO TECHNICAL

I’M TOO OLD FOR THIS, IT’S TOO TECHNICAL

I’m Too Old, It’s Too Technical, I Don’t Have Enough Time?

27

JUNE, 2015.

By Rex Taylor

“I’m too OLD”

It’s time again for me to address some of the more regular comments I receive from many of you and indeed in the last few days.

Hey, you’re on Facebook, How old are you ???

I’m 71 not out (yet) and retired but what does ‘retired’ mean.  I don’t garden, nor do I play golf, belong to a pensioners club/association nor other similar mundane (to me) activities. My (younger) partner & I have joined Six Figure Mentors/ Digital Experts Academy and love it all. It’s stimulating, invigorating and – bottom line – very rewarding. Rewarding not only financially rewarding but more particularly rewarding as we’re constantly leading others to improve their own lives in whatever area they choose. (You might be getting the idea that I’m not your normal 71 yo !!! albeit I am a GrandFather. WTH)

Our Global community numbers approximately 1,000 like minded people (& growing daily), all of whom have differing reasons and motivations for pursuing these ‘studies’.

We followed my daughter (35yo) who became involved about 12 months ago and she has just retired from her full time job as she now earns sufficient from her activities here.

And back to us, we’re happily involved because we wish to travel lots more after 6 weeks last year in Europe with four of those in Italy and there are many more places we wish to see.

So does that address the ‘too old’ scenario? And at 71, I’m certainly not alone in our global community.

“It’s all too technical”

And again I say, you’re on Facebook and really it doesn’t get much more technical than that. Seriously !! And in this day and age of the Internet, whatever you cannot do, one only has to ‘google’ the question, to get the answer. That’s ONE way. The other way is that in the Back Office of the SFM, there is a ton of training and assistance to handle just about everything that one needs to be successful….and being successful with SFM (Six Figure Mentors) means BEING SUCCESSFUL. And it logically follows that with such success, any technical inadequacy if it does surface may be delegated to another person to do it for you….even teach you how to !! There are many websites where people advertise their skills for a nominal fee. “fiverr” is one such site. And more particularly, WE are here to assist at any time something arises to stop progress.

Thus, I hope I’ve covered the ‘too technical’ objection.

“I don’t have enough time”

Now this is more difficult for me to address as I’m retired and still I don’t seem to have enough time to do all I want to. So I cannot speak from a position of authority but I can only try !! And more especially draw on the experiences of those I’m familiar with in our community.

Let me start with my daughter whom we followed into SFM. She lives London (we live in Sydney) and just a week ago ‘retired’ from her full-time employment to devote herself fully to SFM. But over the last 12 months she has made the time to get herself to this happy position. I’ve actually not asked her, but only assume that she’s devoted possibly 2 hours daily to do her learning, her marketing, & her extra courses of study. It’s probably a fair comment to suggest that she became very focussed as she saw the possibilities of how to change her life….and so she has been successful. I would add that, having retired last week, she immediately flew off to NYC to contribute to a new Platinum Group….a more senior level of Digital Experts Academy.

Two more of our community whom I’ve mentioned previously, two brothers, saw the potential, took out a personal loan, left their full time jobs and just a few weeks ago posted that they’ve just hit $200,000 in commissions, all in just over 6 months. Certainly they are two leaders in the community.

Yet another, a housewife and Mother of 2 small children, also saw the potential, devoted herself to the task, made the time, and now she has retired her husband from his full-time employment. They have changed their lives, work less, enjoy it more, devote their lives and time to themselves and their children. This magical Lady does not disclose her earnings but does she have to, given what she DOES disclose !! If she has retired her husband from his full time employment, you work it out.

And as a final PS if you like. Our global community of like minded individuals are the most supportive lot I’ve come across anywhere. And I’ve tried a few things in my time, Network Marketing, Multi Level Marketing etc. It’s marvellous to be part of this group.

“To Fail is hardly an option”

Indeed to join at any level, the attitude if not from your personal coaches then from members everywhere, is that you will not be allowed to fail….it is simply that good.

How would you feel if in 12 months time (or less) you might be reporting similar changes to your circumstances, spending each and every day with your spouse or partner, travelling to parts of the world unknown, upgrading your car to your dream car etc etc etc. The possibilities are endless.

And so to conclude, the starting point to change is to spend $29.95 which is fully refundable within 30 days, if you decide that what you see is not for you. (It’s the price of a bottle of Vodka!!)

Someone said “success comes with experience and belief, not age”

Last month, few college graduates have seen what Doreetha Daniels has seen.

At 99 years old, Doreetha Daniels has lived through a number of watershed moments in American history, including the Great Depression, World War II, the Civil Rights movement, the moon landing and the rise of the Digital Age….and also just graduated from College of the Canyons (COC) in Santa Clarita, Calif., with an associate degree in social sciences (News an hour ago). Daniels said she wanted to finish her education to better herself. But her journey, which started in spring 2009, has been wrought with personal difficulties — from multiple strokes to sight and hearing issues to the revocation of her driver’s license.

What a woman!!!!

I googled for more answer…

So then I googled ‘aged graduate’ to learn more and found many more inspiring stories….

And the thought struck home despite the ups & downs of our world, despite the doom and gloom of politics etc., there is much in our world to be inspired about…or if you like…there is much in our world about which to be inspired.

We’ve just got to know a neighbor from the other end of our street, (100 meters away – it’s a short street) she’s possibly late 70’s, lives alone in a small terrace and we called upon her (by invitation) as she had an issue with her Mac laptop. Henry being the ace IT man that he is, resolved the issue to her delight. But back to L as she will be named. Lives in a small 2 up 2 down terrace, jammed pack full of her life’s collection, and I mean jammed full. It’s in a state of total chaos (to the observer) because L is building her own bookshelves….she’s building her own book shelves (& they’re looking great)….Inspirational. As well as that, compiling her life’s work in Typography into a publication…some 1,000+ page designs, motifs, trade marks, corporate logos etc. also Inspirational.

Came The Six Figure Mentor

There are two guys recently entered our existence who are seriously inspirational. Stuart Ross (UK) & Jay Kubassek (USA). Together they head up probably the best global training for online digital marketing – acknowledged by some of the best. Their training and leadership is changing our lives – and many others too.

Helping others primarily through increase in earnings. Assisted by great Mentors who just about guarantee your success. Inspirational !!!  This was our reason for joining the SFM / DEA community because we never give up as they have never given up on us.

If any of the above inspires YOU, then get in touch because you are the type of person we wish to work with.

Any age, any colour, alone or with your partner – all you need is a PC and access to the Internet.
