ONE OF MY FAVOURITE inspirational quotes in life is "You get what you focus on, so make sure you focus on what you want." And this is so true, not just in life today, but in your whole life.
Wherever you are right now in your life is a result of your past thinking and all those decisions you have made to date, whether they are good or not so good. The key question here is - "Are you fulfilled with where you are now?"
The difference that really does make the difference here, is what we would describe in NLP terms as: CAUSE (Results) and EFFECT (Reasons).
An example of this would be, if I give you two invisible t-shirts, one which said "VICTIM", and the other that said "VICTOR". With this in mind, you might think these t-shirts are actually 100% invisible all the time. However after a while or maybe under a different light, these t-shirts do become visable, so that other people can see the actual word in big letters across your chest that aligns your actual behaviour.
Why not find out how the INVISABLE turns VISABLE ...

AND THEN IT JUST HAPPENED ... but it was forty-five minutes and a little bit extra before it actual did. Really think about how this real life drama can be used in different areas of your life ...
It was late May back in 99, when Pierluigi Collina, the popular Italian referee, blew his whistle to end the first forty-five minutes on one of the biggest sporting events on the planet. This years Champions League Final was being played between two very successful clubs, Bayern Munich and Manchester United.
Munich took an early lead in the game and never looked in any real danger at all – they were cruising, coasting and confident.
Now, imagine this situation that you are wearing Sir Alex Ferguson’s shoes, the Manager of Manchester United, as you stride towards the dressing room, knowing you have around 10 minutes to draw up on all your motivational skills to inspire your team from an un-inspired, un-United display.
WHAT would you do in this situation? - You could:

THERE are two kinds of people in my world - VALLEY people and MOUNTAIN people - But which one are you?
VALLEY people seek the calm and comfortable ground of shelter, safety and security. They may talk about change, but don’t want to be involved in it, especially if this means breaking a routine of whats worked okay up till now. Their concept of achievement is ‘not losing’ so playing for a draw to them is all thats needed. Their concept of fitness, is being fit to survive. They are the people you meet whose sentences start with, ‘I would have …’ , ‘I could have … , or ‘I should have …’. They are the almost people who have many explanations for not making it themselves and only one for those who have - luck. They talk about the risk of losing and yet, they are losers - they just don’t know it.
MOUNTAIN people have decided that valley life is not for them, and seek to test ambition on the toughest of climbs. They know that there is a rich satisfaction in reaching the top and the fight that's needed to get there. They live for the test of change and enjoy resilience required to bounce back from the bumps and bruises that come with the mountain territory. They not only talk about change, they deliver it.
