Travelling To New Zealand – The First Leg LHR to Abu Dhabi.


 

My Dear Beloved Reader,

The title is not exactly true as the very first leg was lugging the luggage that she who must be obeyed has insisted is “absolutely necessary” down the stairs, across the hallway and into our venerated vehicle. It’s been a bitterly cold day with the temperature hovering around 7C and for the benefit of my American friends that’s 46F. I was pleased to leave this:

which happened last night and provided a slightly amusing skating rink this morning. I digress. We had an uneventful but slightly damp journey to London Heathrow Airport and having emptied the luggage onto a variety of carts I entrusted our velocipede into the capable hands of the valet parking team at terminal 4.

Braving the elements we travailed the one hundred feet or so into the terminal and then commenced the half-mile route march to the Etihad First Class check-in area.

Having completed the formalities we were duly ticketed by a very pleasant young lady and duly directed to the Fast Track path, where she who must be obeyed successfully held everyone up:

This lounge has a somewhat subdued lighting scheme which I suppose is to encourage a restful atmosphere but don’t let the photograph above fool you. A few minutes after it was taken the lounge became quite busy. There is a self-serve buffet bar with an adequate array of food and our waitress was very pleasant. Great coffee!

It wasn’t too long before the appointed hour arrived and we made our way to gate 10 and duly boarded and shown to our seats by lovely Aida who together with her colleagues looked after us in an exceptional manner.

Here’s a short video of our experience boarding the flight to Abu Dhabi;

The First Class cabin was really spacious as you can see from our video

and Diana was very pleased with the extensive menu,

that was prepared, with obvious passion by our in-flight chef “Chi-Chi”.

We were very well looked after by Aida and her colleagues and we soon sat down for a lovely dinner.

To start with we had Meditteranean Mezze which was delicious

and I for one had no worries whatsoever with the calorific content! This was followed by a delicious

loin of lamb. The pudding was so good we scoffed it before we could photograph it. Then we had

our beds made. This was not a seat that recined to a “flat bed” but a proper bed and

fullsizeoutput_f5b5

we still had our enormous seats.

We’ve now continued our journey and I’m writing this in the Air New Zealnd lounge awaiting our flight to Auckland so, until my next post…….Toodleoo!

Now let’s get on!


I do not write “political” posts. Politics in my opinion is a private issue.

Many years ago I decided to take responsibility for my own future and I decided to build a financial wall around myself and my family. I decided to build it tall and thick so, it would become an impenetrable barrier to outside forces that were beyond my control.

To be blunt and rude I’m sick and tired of reading posts about stuff that the authors have no real control over. Votes have been cast. Decisions have been made.

Now is the time to put all of that behind all of us and start working to build your own and your families future.

Now is the time to take responsibility for your own life.

Now is the time to go to work and build your own future without blame or praise.

Now is the time for high intensity in your personal endeavour.

This one skill/discipline has been of paramount importance to our success. I’m sure that if you adopt this and make it part of you, then you will not regret it for one single second! Don’t forget to leave your comments, questions and feedback in the comments section below.

Make Three Lists – Lifestyle 101


When starting a new business, it might help to make three lists:

A list of everything that has to be true for this to be a good project (things you can look up, research or otherwise prove).

A list of all the skills you don’t have that would be important for this business to work (things you can learn).

And a list of everything you’re afraid of, or things that are essential and that are out of your control….

On paper, it’s a lot easier to find the real truth, make a plan and act upon it. Use your journal.

Watch out for my next video chapter in Lifestyle 101 coming very soon!

How to get the best from our live broadcasts.

I know that we have a lot of new friends who have never seen one of our broadcasts and I am aware that a few people have had problems accessing them. So, I thought I would write a short brief so you can have the best possible viewing experience. Let’s take this Sunday’s upcoming broadcast on May 10 at 7pm British time. You will get a much richer viewing experience using a desktop or a laptop rather than a tablet or smartphone. You can watch them with these devices but it’s not as good.

The first thing to do is click on the link below as soon as you have read this brief. If you have already signed up for a free account with Google + you will be taken to our “Event” page and you will see three buttons in a box entitled “Are You Going To Watch” and then select “Yes”, “No” or “Maybe”.

If you are not a member of Google + I strongly recommend that you join and not only will you have a much better viewing experience but you will be able to ask questions during the live broadcast. If you’re not a member go to the Google home page and just look at the top of the screen and you will see a button with “Join Google +”. Click on the button and follow the simple online instructions and it takes about two minutes to create an account. You only have to do this once. Just remember your password!

However, you decide to view the broadcast, just click on the link a few minutes before the start time  and you will be taken to the event page and you will see a screen with a play button in a circle (looks a bit like an arrowhead). Click on the button and you will see an announcement that the broadcast will start in x minutes and will count down. Then, at the start time, as if by magic, I will appear in living colour! Don’t forget to tune in and we will have some fun!

Are you worth the money?


Dear Beloved Reader,

At the risk of causing great offence I thought I would share with you  a home truth. Making money is a serious business!

When I started my career n network marketing, thirty years ago, I was fortunate to meet a man called James Rohn. Jim made a statement that “rarely does income exceed personal development” and went onto explain why. Rather than go into deep explanations let me say this. We have all seen or heard  of people inheriting or winning fantastic wealth and in a relative short period of time ending up where they started from. The reason, I beleive, is that they lacked the skills to be wealthy. From my own personal experience, when I was just thirty years of age I had engaged in an enterprise and made serious money. Then, I’m ashamed to say, with a few simple errors of judgement I lost the money and ended up in debt.

Mr. Rohn started me on the course of personal development and looking back on my career I can honestly say that being a student of personal development, coupled with high activity has made me and my family wealthy.

This then begs the question, why do some people become finacially successful and others don’t? In my opinion there are a variety of reasons why people do not fulfil their true potential. Too many to discuss in this short blog. Some, fail to invest in their own future by spending time filling their minds with useless clutter or worse, material of an unsavoury nature. We nourish the body by giving it good food, plenty of water to stay hydrated but the mind needs food as well. So, let me ask you some questions:

  1. What are you reading at the moment that will help in your quest for fulfilment?
  2. What are you listening to that will satisfy your soul?
  3. Who are you spending time with and listening to? The Law of Association is one of natures most powerful laws.

If you’re in with the party crowd all the time, chances are you’re having a good time right now but where are your plans for your future?

Making money is a serious business. Mr. Rohn compared it to beng a farmer. You prepare the soil. You plant the seed. You defend the newborn plants against the noxious weeds and finally you reap the harvest.

So, dear reader, best get good at planting or be ready to make excuses at harvest time!

Until my next post……….Toodleoo!
