Goals and wishes ... "Yawn, Heard
it all before" ...
You ain't heard my take on it because if you had, you wouldn't
be where you are now would you?
Now read and follow ...
Goal setting will become your number one
skill. Once you have mastered goal setting everything else
A goal that is not written down
is simply a wish!
Once you commit it to paper
something magical happens, that wish is no longer a spark
of electricity pinging around your head, it materializes,
it slowly starts to become reality.
A goal written down is a 'to do', an action
- something that will stare you in the face and bug you
until it can be crossed off your '2do list'.
Goals are desires, write them down and
they become your map of achievement. Thoughts become words,
words become actions, actions produce
the life you want.
The time has come to decorate your front
The obvious approach would be to spend
hours trawling through books and magazines. Then discuss
plans with family and friends, also look at other rooms
to get ideas for the masterpiece. Choose colour's, matching
furniture, covers, drapery and plan what you want the finished
space to look like.
Imagine, for this example, I’ve
poked you in the eyes with a sharpened stick. You’ve
spent a few weeks in hospital, had a couple of unsuccessful
operations and have been sent home with a white cane. Before
I stabbed your eyes out you'd noticed that your living
room needed decorating ... nothing's changed, the room
still needs to be decorated!
You're weren't quite sure what you wanted
before my assault and as you've got no eyes you can’t
look at books or other people's ideas; you can’t
colour co-ordinate because you can’t see. What the
hell, you decide to crack on regardless. You manage to
get yourself down to the local DIY store, fumble around
and eventually stumble upon the paint department. You buy
the first tins that come to hand and ask the young assistant
to deliver to your house those bits of furniture you bashed
into and that felt quite nice on your way round.
You spend the next couple of months doing
up the room (it takes you a while because I gave you a
nasty poke in the eyes, remember?). Splash goes the paint,
up goes the wallpaper and in goes the furniture and carpet.
And you finally give yourself a big pat on the back for
a job well done.
Three months later you get call from the
hospital. Thanks to advances in technology a 'miracle operation'
has been perfected and your sight can be restored. You
have the op. and suddenly you can see again. Gingerly,
after some recuperation, you leave the ward. Eventually,
you get home, make a cup of tea and proceed to the living
room you so carefully refurbished ... blind.
‘WHAT THE HELL!!!’
Can you imagine the mess???
Ridiculous story, right? Who in their
right mind would decorate a room blind???
Well, why do 95% of people
make one of the biggest
financial decisions of their lives with their eyes wide shut?
Why do so many people
set up in business or plan their future, blind?
The room you decorated didn’t
stand a chance because you couldn’t see what you
were doing and had no idea what it was going to turn
out like. It was only when your sight returned
could you see the mayhem you’d created. If you
have no idea how the room is going to turn out, how do
you expect to get what you want?
If you take the children on a day out
to the zoo in an unknown town you follow a map to ensure
you arrive there on time and have a super day. You wouldn’t
ever consider saying to the missus, "pack the
bags, strap in the kids, were going for a drive around
the country for a day or so until we come across a zoo!" ... Would
If you have no idea where you are going
then how are you going to get there?
Let’s put that right. Starting today,
we are going to begin to map your road to Total
Personal and Financial Freedom.
we are going to lay the foundations
for the rest of your life:
Are you short of time at the moment, tired,
hungry or is it too noisy to concentrate?
If you can’t give this section
100% commitment, then stop reading - I MEAN IT, STOP
Come back when you feel refreshed and
relaxed, come back when the kids have stopped screaming
or your spouse isn’t about to walk through the door.
We are about to start on that journey to wealth and freedom.
Now I've received the odd whine along
the lines of: "I haven't got a printer, it doesn't
work, I'm out of ink" ... Bla fucking Bla ...
Get a printer, get some ink, get to a friend's computer
or Internet Cafe and get it printed ... Just get it printed
off because if this is a problem now there really is no
hope whatsoever for your future.

You may feel you
may want to skip this section; you may think that
taking part in a gimmicky little exercise like 'goal
setting' is a waste of time. You may think you don’t
need this. If that’s your attitude then either
change it now or cancel your membership. Read no further,
throw away or delete this module. You have no need for
it. You contemplated Omniscience because
you assumed you have the right mind set.
If you are unable to change your indifference
towards what I ask you to do at this stage, no matter how
insignificant or trivial it may seem, we are wasting each
other's time. Everything we do together in this course
has a premeditated impact on your life. Each little thing
we do now will eventually ensure you build that fortress
The Roman Empire was built one
brick at a time.
They built much of it on the foundations
left by older civilizations; they studied and reinvented
ancient systems and adopted many ... never, I repeat never,
did they dismiss a theory or practice of the populace they
conquered until it had been thoroughly considered.
Goal setting may have been written about
in the past and you may well have practiced it ... you
most certainly haven't thoroughly thought it out in the
context of what I'm teaching today.
Things that seem totally pointless have
a very real and important reason for being included. Do
as I ask and then review the results at the end. Don’t
pass judgment until we’ve finished. If you’ve
done an exercise like this before - DO IT AGAIN!
Now have you got your pen?
Answer each and every section. Do not
write down what you would settle for. Do not write down
what you think you will be able to afford in twelve months. Write
down what you want! If money were no object, if
I gave you a blank cheque, what would you buy? Carte blanche.
down to the next section ONLY WHEN YOU'VE COMPLETED
Go back and read what you’ve just
I said go back and read what you’ve
just written, I know you didn’t ... THIS IS YOUR
GOAL SHEET - KEEP IT SOMEWHERE SAFE!
Those are your goals and planned
achievements, a tangible, real place ... where you are
going and what you will acquire. Nothing,
I mean nothing is going to stop you from having all the
things you have fantasized about. Believe me, you are
more than capable of having all this and more, nothing
can stop you now - ABSOLOUTELY NOTHING.
Never again will you settle for second
best, mediocrity. Why settle for
linen when you can have silk???
Whhoooaaa! You have changed a
Now you know exactly what you want.
Now you know exactly where you are going. Every time
things aren’t going well and you are feeling
down turn to your goal sheet.
Your goal sheet is your
blueprint for the rest of your life.
If you aren’t achieving things at
the pace you require come back to it, remind yourself what
it is you are working towards. THESE PAGES
ARE WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT.
Take a postcard and write down your goals;
keep it with you at all times and whip it out when you
need reassurance! (The card!!!)
You have changed because you know you
will never be content with what you have at present.
You know you will never be truly happy
in the house you have now and driving the car you drive.
You aren’t content now. If you were then all the
questions you have just been asked to fill in would be
blank. You would have no goals because you’d have
now, whatever you could wish for!!! You will never
feel truly fulfilled, content until you have what you have
just spent the last twenty minutes writing about.
There's not a high performance individual
on Earth that has achieved all their goals; they have goals
because that is what makes them tick; it's the very being
And those goals don't always have to be
about money, it's simply a fact of life that cash brings
many of the things that make up a fulfilled life ... but
not always the case!
Old William Gates (Microsoft), heard of
His goals at the outset of his monumental business
career would have been totally materialistic. After having
amassed more wealth than many countries his goals have
become more philanthropic; he is becoming fulfilled by
giving away some of his assets ... but you can rest assured,
he won't donate them all! (unless he goes a bit do-dally!)
You now have a very clear picture in your
mind of what you are going to have and where you are going.
You are no longer trying to decorate a room with your eyes
poked out. You know exactly what that room will look like
when it’s finished and you are not going to stop
until it’s just the way you want it - the way you
had planned it today.
Every single person will have a different
set of answers, yet all members of Omniscience
on their way to acquiring the answers they gave in their
goal sheets. Just by writing down and having a clear picture
in your head of what you want will give you a better chance
than anything I know of getting it.
Now fill in the next sentence.
I will have achieved exactly what
I have written down by the year
Simply by typing that in you've cemented
a 'due by' date. You now have a clear picture of
where you are going and when you are going to get there.
At any time along that road you can test
to see if you are on target. If you’re not, then
you simply have to make adjustments don’t you???
This isn't a race,
the goals are just that and if it were just a simple case
of setting them down with a due by date then we'd all be
living the life of Riley (whoever he was!)
One thing I will say is, that now you
have started your journey, your present standard of living
will fade away into insignificance. All those silly little
things that niggle and upset you today will be of no importance
in a few weeks time.
Stop worrying - 85% of
the things you worry
about never happen anyway!
Start to feel happy.You
are taking the right steps.
Next time you look in the mirror, smile
at yourself. You can smile because you know things are
going to be OK, you’ll make
sure of that. There is nothing on this planet that
could block your path to success. You are as powerful as
any other human on this Earth.
There is no one better than you.
Achievers aren’t super-humans put together in a laboratory
and filled with success genes - NO! They are ordinary people
just like you. They are not special. Their only secret
is that they believe in what they are doing and know exactly
where they are going. They don’t
stop failing until they triumph.
From today so will you!!!!
The only thing that
can stop you is YOU, and that’s not going
to happen is it?
There will be many times when you will
feel frustrated. Achieving your goals will not be easy.
In fact, it will be incredibly hard, and there will be
many occasions when you will feel so low you will wonder
if it’s all worth it. Only you will be able to
answer that and with your crystal clear goals embedded,
you will pick yourself up, you will go on to
bigger things and better places you old cockroach you!
When I get frustrated (which is more often
than even I would like) I just take a step back. I go
for a quiet walk in the forest near my home or the beach
near my Mediterranean villa and try to get a grip. I look
at where I started and where I am now. I have achieved
so much and come so far in a relatively short time. I could
be very happy with my current lifestyle, but because I
know where I am going I won’t
settle for second best - although
second best for me is a pretty nice place to be.

ARE GOING TO BE BIGGER THAN
YOU EVER DREAMED YOU COULD BE
In this module we are setting the foundations
upon which you will build your own empire. This is the
spring-board from which you will soar.
How to Cross an Ocean
I spent many years skippering yachts for
a living, and I’ll never forget the first time I
crossed the Atlantic. To cross an ocean you need plan the
journey before you start. You have to
chart every step in minute detail and then monitor your
progress. If you don’t, you die - simple
You start a crossing of any body of water
with a chart laid out on the boat’s chart table.
The difference this time was that on the right of the paper
was Africa, on the left was America, and in between a distance
of around 3,000 miles as the crow flies. On past shorter
sailings I had marked my position, as you do, and at the
end of each day I could see the progress. I would see a
significant difference from where I was yesterday to where
I would be today. Not with a chart the size
of the Atlantic!
Days and days went by when I could barely
mark my new position because it was so close to where I
was the previous day. At one point, I was totally becalmed
for a week. I moved about a 100 miles, mostly backwards!
and that’s depressing when you know there's another
2,500 to go.
Eventually, I got moving again and enjoyed
a truly exhilarating sail across The Pond as it's affectionately
known. Finally, I reached St Lucia just before Christmas
day and reveled in happy times pigging out on chicken,
women and rum punch!!!
I have kept the chart of that first crossing
and looking at it now I still remember how depressed I
felt when a day's traveling was such a small distance marked
on the chart. However, if you look at that map today there
is a long, zig, zag line which starts at Grand Canaria
on the right and finishes at the Caribbean to the left.
through those days when the distances seemed so immense,
the whole crossing would never have been made ... it
was an intrinsic element of the passage.
This is the only way you are going to
achieve your goals ... One small
step at a time.
Barring a huge lottowin
and discounting Lady Luck, you will not wake up tomorrow
and discover you are rich!
Accumulating wealth or success
for that matter is precisely that, a slow build
up - an accumulation. You will barely notice it happening.
unless you’re extraordinarily successful, see huge
advances in your standard of living. One day, some time
in the future, when you’ve got to where you want
to be, you’ll look back and remember where you
were today. It
will be easy to recall because today is the day your
And just to throw another spanner in the
works, you might never get to 'a place' because I've found
just as you get there you edge the finish just a little
further away ... but that's for when your ending your current
cheat time and space to transcend an ocean;
you can’t set off in a boat that is only capable
of 10 knots and expect to be on the other side in a
couple of days ... there are laws of physics governing
it as sure as the rules of success dictate that you
won't get rich, wealthy and free without the action
(even if that action is buying a lotto ticket or nurturing
that rich relative or little old wealthy lady you do
the shopping for).
You can’t set off on your mission
today, skip all the trials and tribulations of achieving
and tomorrow have super-success. You need to break the
transit down into small fragments. If you want to cycle
across a continent you can only do it by turning the peddles
at a rate that can be coped with. Peddle too fast and you
burn out, fall off the bike, bounce down the black stuff,
and end up with road rash!
Even then you're not done. You have the opportunity and
choice to get back on that bike and do a Lance Armstrong
... or sit feeling sorry for yourself, nursing the grazes
in the gutter watching those that paced themselves cycle
You have your goals and a timescale. You
now need to break them down into manageable portions. Achieve
each goal one at a time and eventually they will culminate
into the big, winning picture.
For each element of your new life make
a plan of action. For example, you want to be driving a
Porsche by the end of the year. Take a postcard and write
it down. The make, model, colour and the date by when you
want to take delivery. Now pin this somewhere prominent,
stick it under a fridge magnet so that you can see it every
day. This piece of paper is your chart, the map which shows
the way. The car is the destination and the date is when
you expect to arrive. Each day check your progress. If
you are off course then readjust and alter your direction.
You need to do this with each facet of
your vision. Read your set of goals aloud, every day until
they are accomplished. Then, and only then, can you bin
that particular chart and write out a new set of goals.
Those individual, little achievements
are the pixels which create a masterpiece.
DO NOT MOVE
ONTO THE NEXT GOAL UNTIL YOU HAVE ACHIEVED THE CURRENT
See it through. Remember, an ocean crossing,
a great passage, is made up of many trials and tests of
character on many levels. If you fail to complete just
one you’ll fail ... and probably die!
The huge seas, fatigue and isolation will
intimidate and it'll soon dawn on you that there's no one
out there to be dependent upon ... There's just little
old YOU ... and it's no different during your success voyage!
If you don’t arrive at your destination
on time, change the timescale. You can’t step off
the boat until she’s safely tied up to dry land can
"A GOAL THAT IS NOT WRITTEN DOWN
AND ACTED UPON IS JUST A WISH."
