I hope you know which Suits I’m talking about, yeah…the USA Network Suits.

Oh boy, isn’t it good if every time we just click our fingers and everything we want in life sort of appear in front of our faces in a blink of an eye?

Just like the magicians with their poker cards, “click” and “cha ching”, you know…

Only if that is a reality…hey it can be a very realistic thing – anything we want, but not the-click-our-fingers part and boom it’s there. So, that’s what I want to converse about, how we can go about and get whatever we want. Learning from TV series Suits, literally.

Sure, it sounds like impractically within reach for certain things that we want, but it’s not impossible right?

We all have goals, well I assume that you do. The thing is, it’s the first step to getting what you want. Yes…you can dream, but you have got to wake up. As in my one of favorite Harvey Specter quotes about goals “I don’t have dreams, I have goals”. Without goals, you’re like a Tesla P100D Model S without wheels, a thoroughbred horse cooped up in a stable, a conductor without baton, or a violinist without bow. Ok, in other words, your direction is limited and severely you limit yourself by not having goals.

[Warning: Before we dive in, you might find this shocking and these are only from my perspective point of view]

I want what I want and from the series Harvey gets what he wants. Though this is real life, but need I remind you there are many things we can learn from movies, novels, songs, even TV series like Suits, and of course from my own personal experience. So, here’s an opportunity to learn from the best (I mean Suits lol).

HAVE GOALS

Put it this way, let’s suppose you want to build a superbly engineered and architectural design house overlooking the ocean and you know you’re going to do it, but though without a clear vision, direction, plan and goals you won’t be able to achieve it – PERIOD! Not just your dream house, I can assure you will have a little hope of acquiring whatever else you think will bring you joy in life. Heard of “ideas don’t work, unless you do”? Ok, you have a brilliant idea to build your dream house, but it’s not going to build itself…is it?

Setting up your goal is a powerful implementation. Why? First I know it gives me focus towards getting what I want, and it shapes my dreams for instance. Also gives me the capability to hone in on the exact actions I need to perform to achieve what I freaking want. Not to mention that setting goals provides long-term vision in our lives. So, have goals, set them up in your mind, and write them down – and that bucket lists people call it, that’s your goal.

BREAK DOWN YOUR GOALS

Some people don’t even have goals in the first place, you do…so you’re flipping killing it. You can have them as long as an Amazon river…who cares. Now the fun part, imagine achieving them? And feeling utterly and completely chuffed; good huh? So, the best way to achieve that is to start small and baby steps your big goals. Remember, you can have your goals as big as you want, like the mount Fuji, but what good does it do if it’s too big to achieve. Break them down – make it a bite-size.

BELIEVE YOU CAN

Believe – big word I know, but hey believe you can have it all you want. Be a high achiever, and convinced you can meet or surpass your goals, and beat the odds. Winners, they don’t make excuses. When you have goals you’re awesome, but don’t be one of those low achievers where they equally certain they don’t have what it takes. A result? This might sound rude, tail behind their back and walk away. Often avoid setting goals in the first place.

BE DIRECT & GO FOR IT

People usually are used to others cutting to the chase and it’s good to feel powerful, because it shows that you don’t care about anything than achieve your solid goals. If you’ve got your sights set on something, don’t beat around the bush or waste a second – just remember your play the man not the odds and go for it.

LEAD WITH THE CARROT

At some point we will need some help and when we do…it’s good to have something to give rather than showing up empty-handed. I’m not saying you should give something, but it’s good to do that and make people appreciate. If you don’t know, well you should – people are always more likely to do things for you if you give them an incentive like saying “stick it with a carrot”. Got it? Aha.

BUT DON’T BE AFRAID TO USE THE STICK

This where the shit gets real (pardon my language). You need help, you’ve asked with sincerity, add to that you didn’t come empty-handed, but still…you were refused! What would you do? I certainly don’t give in. Find a way to get what you want, don’t be afraid of a ‘NO’ and use your stick instead. The takeaway? When rewards don’t work, sometimes you need to resort to intimidation perhaps.

DO THE DAMN WORK

You want to write your next New York Times Best Selling novel, want an Audi R8 Coupé or whatever it is you desire…if you don’t to the work, I swear to the ocean and the sky that you won’t even get near your goals, not even a little taste of it. Simple here, do not be a slacker! Yeah, we all work smart these days, but do I have to tell you that hard work pays off? I didn’t think so. Think of how hard Jeff Bezos or Gary Vaynerchuk works, or other successful people around the globe. Take their advice and implement.

ALWAYS KEEP SOMETHING UP YOUR SLEEVE

Prepare for the worse! It’s not just about the cards you have in your hand; it’s about how you play them. Sometimes things don’t go your way and you fail, but yourself ‘that’s ok’. Perhaps we should say, we didn’t get what we want. Don’t be afraid to fail, if you never fail or don’t have failure it means you simply don’t try hard enough. Success isn’t a highway.

CONFIDENCE IS YOUR GOLDEN KEY

This is when I said, you need to come right back up with your head held high and walk like a prince wearing Prada (even if most of us don’t wear Prada – I certainly don’t). Don’t stuck in your comfort zone forever – when it’s time for you to walk with pride, don’t forget to wear it too. Confidence is the best outfit you can wear, rock it up peeps.

IT’S ALL ABOUT PEOPLE CLOSE TO YOU

Last but certainly not least, networking. Have many friends as you can, better still family who you can trust and rely on. Yes, entrepreneur or successful people spend a lot of time alone, but they’re not a loner. Don’t be a hermit and celebrate your success, even small. When you achieve your goals, even smaller goals they are the people you want to share it with.

It’s one of the show where you can sit on the couch after dinner with a glass of Rosé or Chardonnay and certainly entertain, laugh, empower and more to that is what you can learn from it. As for those who never have watched Suits, no spoiler but take it from me, it’s the best series I’ve watched.

Cheers,

Henry.

HOW TO GO ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE GOALS & SCORE

HOW TO GO ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE GOALS & SCORE

FEB, 2017.

By Henry Belanun

My main driving force is, “I have dreams, but more importantly, I have goals”. Sure, in 2017 with all the New Year resolutions and goal setting you have going on, do you actually know where to start? I have to admit, if you asked me 2 years ago, f*cked if I know. And admit it, you’ve got goals the length of the Mississippi River (Not that I’m from Mississippi). Financial goals, career goals, health goals…and heck, the most important for me has to be lifestyle goals – it can be a never-ending-list.

Before we get into the how-to, let’s analyze the problem quickly. Many of us have limited beliefs about what we can actually achieve in our lives. And this is where mind-set ‘resetting and rebooting’ becomes relevant. I want to provoke and evoke in you, in case no one has ever told you, that you can have it all! Simple as that, no bullshit!

First of all, I’m no expert myself…yet!!! (But I’m learning from THEM). It’s like a puzzle or a dance, deciding between sipping on a mouth-watering glass of gin and tonic come 5pm, or sitting down nailing my creative goals that have been brewing. Sometimes I just want to zone out rather than tune in.

But, I remind myself, if you truly want something in and for your life, believe you can have it all and just go for it, be unstoppable. And here are my simple steps.

1.     BELIEVE you can!

My gut tells me I can!!!

I dive into my heart and tell myself that I can have that nice Tesla Model S – 100D (in PEARL WHITE), travel around the globe if and whenever I want to, a beautiful house by the ocean, with a multi-million-dollar business.

Whatever it is that you truly, deeply desire, just let your awesome mind and heart know that you want it all, and let it sink into your sub-conscious you are going to get it no matter what. Like I said before, “believe you can have it all” …

I start afresh daily.

I grab myself a small diary, notepad, journal or piece of paper, list down today’s goals, be organized, prep the night before then minimize as much distraction. (signed off the 2016 diary and put it away).

 

2.     Your Baby Steps – Break the BIG goals down to a set of SMALLER goals.

The best thing I know about having goals is…achieving them and feeling completely chuffed, knowing you’ve made it. Best way to do this is to ‘baby step’ your goals.

Please, don’t misjudge me, what I mean by that is set your goals as high as you possibly can, but start striking the smallest goals you have listed…and break your big goals into a set of smaller goals.

The reason why many people possibly miss their goals is because their goals might have been slightly out of reach, stakes were too high or the pressure was too much to cope with. Perhaps, if you’re like me, you wanted to be a millionaire first year out of college, (not a big deal), but then you realized you still needed a bit of growing up to do or someone to help you stand.

But now, I’m on my way, and getting close…I believe…and of course I’m happy & reckon I’m doing pretty well for 26 yo man. (It sounds arrogant…I’m NOT…just CONFIDENT). But I BELIEVE!!!

Here is what you can do, shift the goalposts a little, bend the rules, cut yourself some slack, but don’t be a slacker. Some people don’t even have goals, so you’re freaking awesome and killing it…and well ahead of the game!!!

 

3.     Get real, get bigger, GROW SLOWLY but no missing the opportunities.

Remember when I said “many have missed their goals?”

When you set your goals make sure to be realistic, don’t be ridiculous. By ridiculous I mean you aim to be Ryan Gosling’s best friend when you turned 30, write a New York Times bestseller next month, have a million-dollar business coming next month or have a mansion overlooking the city of Sydney at age 26 (unless you’re born rich) etc. etc. (Mind you, you CAN argue that these ARE achievable…if you wish)

So be real, be sensible and allow time to help yourself get bigger.

Now you get the idea and you’re ready to tackle the bigger goals you have.

This might be something you’ve had floating around in the back of your mind for years, maybe your new business idea, maybe you are ready for your ‘time-to-shine’.

All of those will help you achieve your biggest goal. Break it down and take a close look at all the little things you need to do to achieve these goals, and set up a loose timeline, in a flexible way. It is meant to be fun and booming.

Shine a light, show your true colors, do a handstand (or two) – and go.

 

4.     Be a MASTER PLANNER !!

You see, whether it’s a building, or your business, company, or a brand you are working on, you need a plan…a solid plan. Remember how good it felt to reach a goal no matter how small? When you have a solid plan, no matter how big your goals are, you are actually half way towards achieving them. Always set yourself small milestones along the way from your plan by breaking it into a bite-sized goals, and every time you hit that milestone, celebrate YOUR success!

And please don’t stress out if you don’t succeed. Just take a look into what/when/why you missed it, and move your mini-deadline and think about how you can fix it, and how good it’s going to feel when you do finally tick that box.

 

5.     Have breathing space

Sometimes running a business and any type of business can be hard and for some people, especially an online business can be tricky when it comes to technology and also can be overwhelming, but that is not a problem with the SFM (Six Figure Mentors). They guide you down the right track – the Community and the support is always there to help you unravel any technical issues you run into, so your focus can remain constantly on growing your online business.

I have to admit, sometimes I do feel overwhelmed myself, or under-inspired. When that happens, I step away from my computer for a couple of hours or a day.

My point is, give yourself a break – slack and grace for a breather will pay serious dividends once you clear your head. When you come back, you feel highly refreshed, calm and ready to tackle whatever it is you’ve set yourself, BOOM!

 

6.     Follow your god damn ‘GUT’

It works for me when people tell/question me ‘how are you going to do it’ OR they don’t agree with me OR they think my opinion sucks OR it is not good enough’ – and my gut tells me, “Go for it!”. The best medicine ever is to conquer from within, to trust your instinct.

But don’t try to control the outcome of how you are going to achieve your goals, it’s like trying to stop a wave from crashing, it’s almost impossible. What you should be controlling is your choices that you can make.

 

7.     Celebrate

It is my favourite thing to do and I’m pretty sure it’s yours too. Your day will come, when your goal that felt so far off is finally in your hand, looking right at you, winking at the same time and you got it.

So, it’s time for you to acknowledge your achievement and remind yourself that you ARE amazing, and of course to celebrate a little, or go wild. If you bought a house, throw a party, if you bought a car, drift the hell up and if it’s your project or business you’ve conquered, you deserve to enjoy the feeling of standing on top of it, you’re the boss.

I celebrate every now and then, no matter big or small, big ROI, hit my extra miles in my evening run, or goals yet to come. Thanks to the system (SFM Business System) that has helped me and my business to create my kind of lifestyle. A lifestyle that gives me freedom to do what I want to and what I love, while still operating and building my own empire, at the same time living a life that is limitless for me (never say never).

So that’s what I wanted to share with you, because I believe it will help you tremendously in this roller coaster journey we call life.

Whether your goal is to earn more money, gain more time freedom, take your business to a whole new level, or to create a lifestyle by your very own design, the SFM business system will give you access to anything beyond your wildest dreams.

Now that you’re a pro at establishing your creative goals and seeing them through, dive into it and get cracking!

WHY PASSION IS AN IMPORTANT KEY TO SUCCESS IN YOUR BUSINESS

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…..!!!

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.

Rex.
