The Last Man On Earth

last man on earth

If you think your online business just won’t work for you, take a look at where I live and let me tell you about feeling like the last man on earth…
I moved to a remote Scottish island to marry and raise a family. I left a high-flying city job and the picture above is a real photo of my MAIN STREET…
True!
These cottages used to be quarrymen’s cottages until a massive tidal wave hit the island 100 years ago and flooded the slate quarries and ended a booming industry overnight.
And although it is a very beautiful island, when I first arrived there were days when I DID feel like the last man on Earth!
And sometimes I still do – even today, we have virtually no cell phone reception (so no SMS messaging), and our broadband speed is from the Stone Age.
But still, I’ve carved out a successful career online with my coaching and marketing business, Win With Robin and also as the thriller author Alex Breck
And I have heard so many online clients complain that THEY TOO feel like the only people on the planet – like every time they visit their sites —
==> all they hear is the sound of crickets…
Lack of Traffic is the Number One problem for most online sites, right?
Well, not for you anymore!

Not once you have finally conquered Solo Ads!

Stop feeling like the last man on earth (or woman)

Imagine working 30 minutes a day, and seeing between $20 to $2,000 being deposited into your bank account — every single day?
What if you could put FOCUSED action into your business and finally get the income you so desire?
So all I ask is that you check out my Solo Ad training site and see what it could do for you.
I used to hate the idea of Solo Ads having been burned in the past. Now I love them! They are the principal reason 2017 has been my BEST YEAR EVER.

Not convinced?

Well please accept my invitation for a rocking webinar which will show you exactly how I broke through to find success and finally becoming free of the hamster wheel
When you attend live, you’re going to see and discover…
 ==> Just how simple it can be to make money online – even if you live on a remote Scottish island just like me…
 
 ==> How the step-by-step process means even a complete beginner can do it starting from scratch…
Go on! Take a second, head over there right now to claim your spot on my webinar. 
It’s free but that doesn’t mean it’s not rammed with VALUE.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

4 Reasons Why An Online Business Is Still Your Best Bet…

Is An Online Business Still The Best Bet? Here Are 4 Solid Reasons Why.

Online Business set to explode

Hi there… so one of the questions I get asked the most is this:

 

“So Robin, what’s the big fuss about an

Online Business, and why should I

take starting one so seriously?”

Well.. this is an enormous question, to be honest.

But today, I’m going to break it down simply for you.

The 4 Reasons Why You Should Seriously Consider Starting An Online Business:

1. It’s where the future is…

It shouldn’t take long for you to realize that the Internet has already changed everything. People can connect in more ways than they’ve EVER been able to, and people
can buy from anywhere in the world, at any time. And to make things even sweeter for Online Business, it is projected that the overall “population” of the Internet
will grow to over 20 billion users by 2018.

Online Business

 

 

And there are still millions who’ve NEVER used the Internet!

 

 

 

 

By owning an Online Business, you’ll be positioning yourself in front of an absolutely massive influx of potential prospects, customers, and in the end, loyal fans.

One of the biggest and most defining characteristics of successful Entrepreneurs is the fact that they can see an opportunity and take immediate action.

So, ask yourself this: Do you think that having a medium through which you’ll be able to tap into over 20 BILLION customers over the next couple of years is an opportunity, or not?

I Thought so…Gold is an excellent online business

 

…And that should be enough to get you to start an Online Business TODAY.

2. Virtually risk-free income streams…

Here’s the deal: … once you start to figure this thing out

And once you start to figure this thing out just a little bit… and begin to build one of these Online Business things, you can add virtually never-ending streams of income, with little or no risk.

Yesterday my inbox was rammed with hundreds of new prospects hungry to find out how to find traffic online.

Online Business leads

 

You might have been one of them!

Many of them upgraded to higher priced items.

I ran a campaign through my PLS lead spittin’ machine.

The cost of the advert was less than the value of my sales.

This is what we call a self-liquidating offer.

 

The lesson is that once you have one of these – Online Business provides you with the means to add virtually risk-free streams of income on command, whenever you
want.

Now I don’t know about you… but I like multiple streams of effortless income.

That is why they are effectively risk-free.

And then when you decide that you wanna start earning the big bucks… you can put on your big boy/girl pants and position yourself to earn $3,000 to $5,500 per sale and more besides.

Get say 2-3 of those a month… and guess what.. you’ve reached the elusive level of being a “6 Figure Earner”.

3. It levels the playing field…

Honestly, I think this has got to be my single favourite thing about Online Business. There’s no other model where you can get started for a few thousand dollars (at the very most), and have the ability to earn 6, or even 7 figures a year.

online business level playing field

Think about it: If you’re the ambitious Entrepreneur and you want to start a brick and mortar business, get ready to sink tens of thousands of dollars into a business that unfortunately, might very well fail (90% of all startups do after-all).

Been there and done that, sadly.

If you’re a little bit more strategic and decide you want to tap into a franchise (85% of which succeed), get ready to have to throw down a quarter of a million dollars to get
started.

And we wonder why the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. It should be obvious.

With an Online Franchise Model Business such as THIS ONE… you can get started at the highest level for a couple of thousand dollars, and actually, have MORE earning
potential than that Subway or McDonalds would that you’d pay over 200X more for.

It’s a no-brainer for me…

But, let me sweeten it with my BONUS so that it’s a no-brainer for you too. Join me in SAN and I will coach you for free until you make back your membership in sales.

4.  It requires intellectual capital more than anything…

Okay, now it’s time to buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride from here on in… So be warned.

You’ve been warned.

online business map

This 4th reason is something that the winners in our Online Marketplace totally LOVE, and that the losers absolutely despise, or instead just completely deny being true.

But here’s the deal: The only thing you have to do in order to run a profitable Online Business is to learn and master one or two skills that you don’t already have. It
really, honestly, isn’t that hard.

Use one of these as your sales machine, and then focus your energy on learning and mastering ONE method of traffic generation.

Whether it be Solo Ads, Facebook PPC, PPV, you decide… the important thing is that you focus on one, and then commit to MASTERING that ONE FORM of traffic generation.

The fact that your own intellectual capital (the skills and information you have attained) is the ONLY THING standing in between you and your dream life should
feel incredibly empowering… And to the winners, it does.

The losers, on the other hand, will find excuses as to why they can’t learn that form of traffic, why they can’t get positioned correctly, or why they can’t find the time to
invest in learning the skills. They’ll look for things to blame when they encounter small set-backs, and quit early. It’s true – I’ve heard every excuse under the stars.

online business excuses

Remember, the only way you fail is to quit… and the only way to succeed is to increase your own intellectual capital.

The best advice I could give you would be to start working on your own personal skills and NEVER QUIT. It took me a good couple of years minimum of PAIN, STRUGGLE, and FRUSTRATION to finally have my breakthrough. The most important thing to remember is that if your business success is the number one priority in your life, your success is not a matter of “if”, but more of a matter “when.”

Keep Smiling!

Online Marketing Tip #37 – Speed vs. Cadence

Speed versus Cadence

online marketing

Those who know me well will already be aware that I’m a cycling fanatic and when I’m not writing, coaching or with my family then out on my bike is where I’ll be!

Luckily, I live in a beautiful remote area with lots of traffic-free roads and lots and lots of hills.

The photo above is of me cycling down a mountain road on the West Coast of Scotland when I’d just clocked my fastest speed on a bike of 51 mph!

Now I know online marketing can be a tough (and lonely) old business and consequently, it can be stressful.

Many of you will de-stress by meditating or doing yoga, but for me, I relax best AND come up with my best ideas when I’m pedalling hard along a gorgeous coastal pathway.

You all know the slogan, “Success Loves Speed” right?

The basic idea is that if you work hard on a project initially, you’ll get to grips with it more quickly, building up a head of steam and then this momentum will be evident to others in the online space so you’ll find massive success more quickly.

Plus, it makes a great story when you can say, “I made $xxx in my first 14 days with my ‘wonder product,” right?

So, there I was cycling away and checking my onboard computer for my speed, distance and so on. The toughest thing for me is maintaining my CADENCE.

And this made me think about online marketing.

Now, cadence is the rate at which my pedals go round. NOT how fast I’m going.

If I select an easier gear ratio, then my feet will ‘spin’ faster.

In cycling, the aim is to find your optimum cadence and stick to it no matter if you’re going uphill or downhill, within reason.

When you hit that optimum then everything works better – your ‘system’ is working to its maximum efficiency.

But if you pick a gear that’s too easy and so your feet are flying round in a blur but your bike isn’t really moving very fast at all then you will never get anywhere.

In online marketing, I see people doing this all the time!

They ACT busy.

Running around doing unimportant activities in a rush all the time to appear successful.

But they avoid the tough jobs which are the ones that actually get the leads, conversions and sales.

They fiddle with their website header graphics, update their profiles on Social Media.

To the outside world, they are a blur of activity.

But their system is inefficient – if they even have one at all.

They don’t build their lists.

They forget to follow up.

They spend hours trying to ‘attract’ prospects using ‘free’ traffic methods.

I can offer you a way around ALL of that.

It’s a proven system.

You will move with real speed yet it will seem more effortless than anything you’ve tried before.

No more uphill slog.

Because you’ll have a system.

>> Click here to find out more  <<

But don’t take too long. I need fast action-takers and you know how it is – success loves speed!

Will a $1 trial make you take action faster? What about 100% refunds PLUS $100 cash just for wasting your time? You got it!

Keep Smiling!

The Income Potential Is Gigantic

So, I am a PRO level member of The Super Affiliate Network!

Income potential with The Super Affiliate Network

What’s YOUR Income Potential these days?

Those of you who know me will get that I’m always open to new ways to make money online, principally so I can help my clients find the best solution for themselves. For example, I’m friendly with lots of MLM’s and network marketer although I am not in an MLM myself.

But every so often I find something that’s just too good to pass up on. In particular, that just has to be The Super Affiliate Network.

I think of this group as being like Elite Marketing Pro but without all the unnecessary baggage and with an amazingly friendly and knowledgeable community to support the newbie entrepreneurs. The income potential is awesome because you are taught immediately how to make money online.

I made sales in my first couple of days.

The best thing about The Super Affiliate Network for me was Misha Wilson taught me how to finally crack the enigma of Solo Ads.

I’d tried Solo Ads via EMP in the past but had got my fingers well and truly burned. Like PPV and Facebook Ads, this can be one of the quickest ways to be parted from your money with nothing to show for it! To say that I was reluctant to ever touch Solo Ads again would be the understatement of the year.

But Misha has a whole area of his business devoted to Solo Ads, and when I employed his tactics I got a whole bunch of sales from my very first run!

Now I’m a PRO Level member and let’s be honest here, who doesn’t LOVE getting $1,000 commissions?

That’s only the half of it. The income potential is unlimited and the commissions go way beyond anything I’ve ever seen.

income potential with super affiliate network

So, you’re probably thinking – what’s the catch?

I don’t blame you, either! So often I used to watch those awful ‘free’ webinars that would promise the earth, only to find at the end they were flogging some awful idea which costs thousands of dollars.

But the good news is you can get started with The Super Affiliate Network for the price of a cheap coffee! That’s what I did when I made several hundred dollars in my first week. That’s got to be too good to pass on, right?

Keep Smiling!

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

Don’t Beat Yourself Up

 

dont beat yourself up

In the online business game, it’s easy to become disheartened.

All day you see posts from people who’ve found ‘the secret’ to making gazillions online.

They’ll be telling you how they only have to work an hour a day.

Yet they seem to get so much done.

And here’s you – still broke and struggling.

Still chasing every new ‘bright and shiny object.’

No wonder you beat yourself up!

So here’s a great video from my new best friend Misha Wilson where he shares one important lesson which will transform your business.

It’s called Stay Focused But Stop Beating Yourself Up.

If you haven’t heard of Misha, rest assured he knows what he’s talking about.

He currently makes several million dollars a year easy and he’s not hit thirty yet!

And his marketing resources have helped me have my best year ever (without working half as hard. Yes! It’s true…).

And I don’t beat myself up about not working so hard. Why would I?

Because it doesn’t have to be like that.
The opportunity will be there either way and the choice is up to you – you get to decide!

Keep Smiling!

Don’t Let Presumption Be The Thief Of Opportunity

Presumption Can Be The Thief Of Opportunity

Wow! I’ve been SO busy so far this 2017 – just had my BEST start to the year EVER!

opportunity

 

Presumption can be the thief of opportunity. It’s YOU who gets to decide.

This phrase is an all time classic and it brings to mind the quote from Henry Ford:

‘Whether you think you can, or think you can’t –

you’re right.’

So, if Ford’s quote is such a classic, why would I feel the need to expand on it?

Ah, that’s a good question – I’m glad you asked..!

Well, it’s the photo that gave me the idea.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I live on a wee island off the West Coast of Scotland.

The photo above is of another Scottish island, very much smaller, and a famous landmark.

The rocky outcrop is called Ailsa Craig and if you’ve heard of the Winter Olympic sport of Curling, you might be interested to know that all the curling stones used are made from granite taken from Ailsa Craig.

Now, looking at the picture, imagine if way back in the past you were wondering about the business possibilities over on that great stone lump.
To take advantage of any opportunity, you’d have to get over to it first.

You might look at the view and see the dangerous looking rocks in the way, and therefore presume that you couldn’t possibly do it.
Or, you might look over to the left of the view, and see the gaps in the rocks, and therefore presume you COULD do it!

It’s the same opportunity – nothing has changed, but what has changed is the presumption, and it’s changed everything when it comes to taking advantage of the opportunity.

So you can see where I got the initial motivation for this post but let’s move away from big old granite rocks in the sea, and look at YOUR opportunities.

Actually, to start off with, you might be reading this thinking that you don’t have any opportunities, and that would be wrong, because opportunity is all around us.

opportunityIf you can read this, then you have access to the internet and a level of education that offers you the chance to do amazing things.

So, it could be that it’s not the presumption of your ability to take the opportunity that’s the problem, it’s your presumption about the perceived lack of opportunity itself in the first place!

This concept of presumption is such a key one, it’s the bedrock of self-improvement and personal responsibility, it’s why some call ‘attitude’ one of the 4 magic words beginning with ‘A’!

For this post today though, let’s continue with the idea of looking at what happens when you DO see an opportunity…

You might think you won’t take it because of a number of reasons:

  • you’re not good enough
  • you’ll fail as usual
  • people will laugh at you

Maybe you’ll take on other people’s presumptions about you as real, and let them override your own presumptions about yourself!
(That might sound crazy, but believe me, it’s so common with coaching clients of mine that I think it’s a horribly real factor in people not fulfilling their potential)

As a result, you might take no action, get no results, and the opportunity passes you by.

It’s called ‘Analysis Paralysis…’

OR…

You might presume that you can do it, even if it’s difficult, you might presume that if you’re not good enough you’ll learn and work at it.

opportunityYou might presume that while failure is a possibility, so is success.

You might take another famous quote to heart, that of Thomas Edison, who said that he hadn’t failed, he had just found 10,000 ways that wouldn’t work.

You might presume that if others laugh at you, then that’s their problem, not yours.

If you go down the road of that set of presumptions, you’ll start to take action, you’ll start to move forward and best of all, you’ll start getting results, probably tweaking as you go.

Then not only does opportunity move closer towards you, it becomes a part of you.

opportunity

The gateway of opportunity opens up to you, and as you go through you’ll find things move on the other side.

Habit and momentum kicks in, you find yourself surrounded by people who can help you, and further opportunities come your way.

All because you presumed that ‘you could.’

Sounds exciting? That’s good, because let me tell you IT IS exciting!

Sound too simple? Well, while the concept is simple, I understand that taking it on in real life is not always simple.

I understand that the negative presumptions can be deeply ingrained, built up over many, many years.
And yes, while I fully understand that, it still doesn’t take away from the fact that a presumption is just that, a presumption…

Remember the acronym FEAR?

  • False
  • Expectation
  • Appearing
  • Real

It’s a use of energy to fire up the imagination to project an outcome into the future.
The positive outcome presumption is still no more than a projection of the imagination, there are no guarantees, but if we’re going to presume, why not presume the best?

Why not presume that things will fall our way once we take action?

opportunity

We can’t be absolutely sure of the outcome if we do take action, but that’s true in life all over. What we can be sure of though, is that if we presume the negative to a point where we take no action, the results will be in line with no action, and in the vast majority of cases, that means no results.

So that’s what I mean about the idea of presumption being a thief of opportunity.

It might be language a touch too flowery for Ford’s liking, but I like the emotion it brings because when it comes down to it, it’s our emotions and passions that can push us to let opportunities slip by simply because we choose to presume in the negative.

But it doesn’t have to be like that.
The opportunity will be there either way and as I said right at the start, the choice is up to you – you get to decide!

Keep Smiling!

Life Isn’t Always Rainbows and Unicorns

Life Isn’t Always Rainbows and Unicorns

 

rainbows and unicorns

Life isn’t always rainbows and unicorns so when it is, savour the moment!

 

The photo showing the colour spectrum brought the phrase to mind after I was talking with a good marketing friend who’d just had some particularly undeserved bad luck.

It’s a phrase I think is relevant for times when people use it to dismiss the concepts of self-improvement and personal development.

People often dismiss those concepts as ‘airy fairy,’ ‘happy clappy’ or ‘wishy washy,’ when they don’t work out so good in real life – dismissed with the ‘evidence’ that real life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns.

Now, I can see why the ‘happy clappy’ image of the industry can put people off – you know the sort of thing – you’ll probably be picturing a presenter on stage, shouting wildly at the audience, probably getting them to hug 5 strangers around them.

Not everyone likes that kind of approach, and as it happens I’m not a massive fan of it personally.
But I can see how it breaks down some mental barriers and relaxes some people though.

Then the ‘wishy washy’ dismissal comes with the idea of ‘visualisation’ and ‘law of attraction‘.

People can view those concepts as something that ‘hippies’ do, spending their time bringing what they want into their lives simply by imagining it!

Hmm…

If that’s the attitude someone has of the field of personal development, it’s not surprising that it’s mentally put away in the ‘airy fairy nonsense’ box in the brain, categorised as not relevant to the day to day necessities of going out to earn a living.

Well, that’s why I say life really isn’t always rainbows and unicorns…!

When a tap floods your bathroom and the ceiling collapses, when a tyre on the car goes flat, when a train or plane is delayed, when someone is horrible to you for no reason – things like that happen in life.

No-one in the self-improvement field is saying they don’t!

What they ARE saying though, and obviously I’m saying it now, is that although unpleasant things will happen in life, so will the good stuff!

The hardships can be dealt with, and the good stuff can be enjoyed.
Dealing with the hardships can be made easier by the attitude we take into them, and this can be as simple as just accepting that ‘life’ happens – it will not be, and cannot be, perfect all the time.

The good stuff, therefore, must also be accepted and enjoyed in a similar way, they are two sides of the same coin.

There’s an important point to take further here – the balance can be tipped towards the good stuff.
Eliminating all the bad stuff cannot be done, and it’s foolish to try, but a lot of it CAN be eliminated.

If it’s a sudden unexpected nuisance then there might not be much we can do, but if it’s an ongoing, long term annoyance, then it’s possible you can do something about it.

What would you prefer instead? What have others done to achieve that alternative? What are YOU going to do about it?

And when it comes to earning a living, this can be decades of drudgery for a lot of people, but why?
Why does it have to be that way?

There is so much opportunity in the world today, and if you’re able to read this article, that opportunity is all around you right now.

 

It may involve hard work, in fact you can EXPECT it to be hard work, but that’s par for the course, and dealing with that is part of the attitude shift that might be needed.

So, in your life, what would you consider to be YOUR rainbows and unicorns?

Do you make enough room in your life to fully enjoy and appreciate them?

Do you allow yourself to enjoy them?

The hardships will come along, and the hardships will go, just as the good times will, so when it’s good, savour the moment!

 

I am an award-winning coach who loves to help clients overcome key challenges such as change management. Let me help you banish your fears so you can rock the rest of the year!

I hope you found some value in this post. If so please share the love.

Keep Smiling!

Self Doubt Is Normal But Can Be Destructive

Self Doubt Is Normal, But Can Be Destructive

Ditch Self Doubt and Believe

As a Success Coach, I would say that self doubt is one of the most common problems faced by my clients when they first come to me.

Even the most confident person you can think of has more than an occasional bout of self doubt. The trick is to accept it for what it is but then get on with the business of being successful.

That’s how most successful entrepreneurs beat the scourge of self doubt.Consistent self doubt is as crippling as clinical depression and you may soon find yourself in a paralysing rut that’s difficult to extract yourself from.

As a rookie – or even a seasoned entrepreneur, you have a lot riding on your ability to stay focused. Your ultimate level of success and satisfaction with your chosen career depends on it.

It’s imperative that you develop the resilience to overcome self doubt you’re sure to experience and replace that negativity with other thoughts designed to build your confidence rather than bringing you down.

self doubt - don't give in to it

Self doubt can cause indecision and procrastination – both lethal detriments to your ultimate success. Yet, every challenge you face in your quest as an online entrepreneur brings with it recurrent doubts from the depths of your subconscious that may prevent you from overcoming the challenges and achieving your goals unless you can get a grip on them and see them for what they are – lies.

The higher you climb on the ladder of success, the more self doubt you’re likely to have.

So, what can you do to alleviate some of these obstacles and direct your energy in a more productive manner?

It begins in your mind and progresses to taking action as you learn you really are capable of facing and overcoming any challenges that come your way.

Firstly, you should know and be comforted that you’re not the only person (successful or not) who has suffered from self doubt along the way.

Acknowledging that others have felt as you do and gone on to become successful in spite of self doubt can alleviate your worries and help you get past the feelings more quickly. If you haven’t already set some personal and business goals for yourself, do it immediately.

It’s part of the plan that you’ll use as your map to the magic kingdom of success. It’s perfectly okay to set lofty, long-term goals. Just make sure you set attainable, short-term goals, too – so you can experience success in small increments along the way.

Short term goals are especially important because they provide continuous realisation that you are moving along quite nicely and are well on your way to meeting those long term goals. It lets you bask in the sunshine of the smaller wins, while waiting for the big payoff at the end.

Use the principle of S.M.A.R.T. goal setting;

Strategic – Measurable – Achievable – Realistic – Time Based

Some things will happen along the road to success which are beyond your control. It’s important that you accept this and avoid blaming yourself. In all of our lives, a little rain must fall. Be prepared in every way you can and press onward to your goals.

Success Without Risk

success without risk

Q: Does success come without risk?
A: No.

Ha! That answer doesn’t mess about, does it? Short, and to the point.
In fact, it couldn’t be any shorter, and although I obviously think it’s the right answer, I also think it’s worthwhile expanding on the reasons why.

To look further, I think we need to take two angles to come at it –
Firstly – what do we mean by ‘success’, and
Secondly –  to address the argument some people might make, that they can come up with lots of cases where some people certainly do have success without risk.

So, how do we define ‘success’?

Is it a certain level of career progression?

Is it fame and/or fortune?

How about a marriage and family?

Maybe a massive house or a flash car?

Of course it varies from person to person, and while it may seem easy to equate success to money, there are many other ways to describe it.

Have you heard of Earl Nightingale? He was the author of The Strangest Secret amongst many other books. His insights into success have transformed the lives of many people so much so that he’s been called ‘The Dean of Personal Development.’ One his most famous quotes is;

“success is the progressive realisation of a worthy idea.”

But you might say that if I’m leaving the definition of success down to the individual, it’s impossible for me to assess all the possible risks that might be involved.
Now, while that’s strictly speaking true, I also think it’s possible to say in the context of the original question, that the ‘risk’ can be narrowed down to the risk of it not working.

Going wrong.

Failure.

Following on from that, the consequences of failure, which generally involve loss of some sort – maybe loss of money, or maybe loss of other opportunities resulting from your commitment to the original goal.

In my experience, to get to a goal will always involve action, and since the results of action can’t always be guaranteed, there will be risk of failure.
The harder the goal, the more competition or the tighter the space at the top of the field, then the risk of failure only increases!

At the time of writing this post we’re into the first week of the Olympic Games. I’m a huge road cycling fanatic and so far the Olympics has been a brutal event for some of the top racers. Not many competitors will ever get an Olympic gold medal.

So, if you look at industries like sport, or acting or music for example, for every one person who achieves ‘success’ there will be hundreds and hundreds of ‘failures.’

Or are they..?

If we look back at Earl Nightingale’s definition of success, anyone pursuing a career in those tight fields is following their passions, chasing their dreams, and acting in a way in line with what makes them feel alive.

In addition to my online success coaching, I’m also a British Cycling Coach and I’ve known many aspiring cyclists who’ve never made it onto our news programs. But I would definitely ascribe Nightingale’s definition of success to most if not all of them. In fact I’ve known hundreds of clients whose lives have been enriched by following their life-long passions, no matter what the eventual results were on paper.

In that case they could be described as a success whatever the result, because they have taken on the risks, and one thing’s for sure – they won’t be the ones looking back and wondering ‘what if?’

I did mention earlier that it’s worth looking at the argument that some people do achieve success without risk – mostly because they are following the same path as their parents, so all the relevant doors are already wide open for them, and they can simply saunter through.

I disagree!

I have a couple of problems with that view! Yes, of course, if you’re born to a wealthy family like a certain Mr Trump perhaps, or a famous parent, then doors will indeed be open for you, but that brings its’ own pressures, and sometimes the risks for those offspring can actually be greater because they have had a bar set so high by others, a process in which they played no part.

The other problem I have with that view of ‘easy success for the lucky ones’ is that in those cases, they still have to take action to achieve ‘success’, and that action will still bring consequences that can bring success OR failure.

Action still required

So, is the route to success easier for some, with less risk? Possibly, but that’s applicable to a minority, if at all.

No, I think it’s better to focus on the majority, which most likely includes my humble self, and most likely includes you too!

Going after success will carry risk, I feel clear about that, and while it’s also clear that it’s up to the individual to decide whether the risk/reward ratio is worth it, my view is that taking the risk will almost always lead to a more fulfilled life, an enrichment of the soul, while not taking the risk leads to the opposite – a life unfulfilled, a soul that will be left wondering what might have been.

success

So, examine the risks by all means, then prepare for them as best you can, start taking action and focus on the success rather than the risk.

It can not only change your life, it can ‘transform’ it!
