‘It is in the ring where one is bloodied and bruised, but it is also in that same ring where the victor is applauded. I will press on!’
Success was never designed for the frail of heart nor the timid. It is something that most of us will have to fight for with all of our might. And once you’ve got it, you may still need to fight to keep it. Success is not for the weak. It is for the brave. It is for the dreamer. It is for the believer. Success demands blood, sweat and tears, because it knows that success won easily often leads to success easily lost. However, success won through the heat of battle will make your victory sweet and your success appreciated. Do not despise the fight. For from the darkness will arise the light.
REASON # 6 – You believe that you should enjoy
life whilst you can.
So you might get run over by a car tomorrow…but the
chances are you won’t.
Thanks to advances in healthcare, you could well be
retired longer than you worked for. Never let your
borrowings grow old with you; pay them off as soon as you
What is the biggest cause of arguments between married
What is the biggest cause of the poor getting poorer and
the rich getting richer? Abuse of money.
Have you noticed that the most addictive substances are
those that have to be replaced again and again?
I would put money firmly in the same category. The
people who want more money the most…go out of their
way to dispose of it and get the thrill as quickly as
Rich and successful people look after their money.
They nurture it, so that it reproduces and grows. Poor
people waste it.
If you spent $3 every working day on a coffee instead
of putting the money towards paying off a credit card
…then you would be almost $6,500 worse off after 5
Just for having a coffee!
I hope that these steps have helped you realise that
it’s the little things that make a difference!

Here’s an email I received from one of my subscribers to my ‘Weekly Motivator’…
Richard as a small business owner who is doing it tough atm…I just have to tell you how much your cartoons mean. It’s amazing what they say about when you are ready for the lesson in life it will show up….again and again till you get it. OK sometimes in the shape of a piece of 4×4 across the back of the head (lol) but this is brilliant. Thanks for making me smile this morning through the stress the day has presented. Cheers Allison

Here’s a report that I read and some of the points really ‘hit home’, so I decided I’d have some fun and illustrate it with cartoons. Hope you enjoy it too!?
“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum
Inside this report you will find out why there are still as
many people struggling through life as there used to be,
despite more and more self-help books being sold than ever
The answer lies, not in the content of the books, or the
quality of the authors, but in the person who reads them.
By their very nature, self-help books can’t give you what
you want. The path to success is completely different for
everybody…so one size never fits all.
Don’t you wonder why 97% of the population will never
So lets get started and find out…
REASON #1 – You never act on the information you read in
Reading the latest book by your favourite self-help author
may be interesting, even enlightening, but it is money
wasted if you just read the book, and do nothing else.
It seems that a lot of people want to champion the fact that
they have read “hundreds” of self-help books. For all the
good it has done them, they might as well have read hundreds
You can get something out of every self-help book you read
…if you actually do something with the information rather
than just read it. By their very nature, these books should
be treated as life “User Guides” and dipped into at regular
intervals for inspiration.
If you do read a book from cover-to-cover make sure that you
have made notes about those “Ah ha” moments that you should
have had if the book has lived up to it’s promises.
The best thing of all to do is to summarize the book
yourself…by understanding the information on your own
terms you will be more able to focus on what you can apply
in real life.
REASON # 2 – You can never imagine yourself as a success.
[FONT-0] It's really that simple – to succeed you need to fail more!
"Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that?s where you will find success."
