The only way to get the life you dream of is action

Everyone wants success, whether they admit it or not. I have yet to come across a single person who is living a fulfilled life by choosing to settle.

Life’s too short to live only for the weekends and holidays. To only enjoy some of your life and be just okay with the rest; that’s definitely not living your best life.

The problem is that it’s easier to dream about, talk about, or even bluff success than it is to actually achieve it. But real success is created by your actions, not your words. The only way to get the life you dream of is action.

So, ignore the cynics, the people who have given up on their own dreams. Instead, take massive and determined action to achieve your goals and don’t slow down for anyone and anything.

The view is worth the climb.

Dignity

I have served my country as a Soldier, as a Police Officer, and now as an entrepreneur; creating wealth, jobs and paying taxes.

If I see someone cleaning the streets, but doing so diligently, then they have my admiration and respect as much as any CEO of some huge company.

I don’t care about your job title, your pay grade or your qualifications.

Being a great mum, for example, has no qualifications but in my mind that is the ultimate in purpose.

It is in the striving for excellence, the mastering of your trade and the pride you take in your job, whatever that may be, that makes me respect you.

So, whatever role or job you do in life, if you do it with purpose, you do it with dignity.


Inspiration

Too many companies don’t pay their staff well enough or look after them properly.

This leads to having to manage the uninspired and unmotivated.

Great companies don’t hire skilled people and then motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them.

Always give motivated people ambitious goals to achieve and then ensure they have the tools and financial incentives to achieve them.

That’s how you create a company to be proud of.
