Be Kind To Strangers, Lest They Be Angels In Disguise

Have you ever met a person, and your families automatically click? Well that happened to us almost seven years ago. We moved to a new country and met a family who we all think are very special.

This weekend we experienced a wonderful event. One of the nieces of this family was married to a lovely young man. The bride looked lovely. The wedding was magical. But that wasn’t it. . . . . . When the family stops the photographer and stresses that you and your wife have to be in the family photo! That is lovely.

I hope they read this message as they begin their journey together. There MC made a statement that I would like to share “May your saddest days ahead be only as sad as the happiest memories of your past”.

Thank you to the Dekort and Smallwood family union.

So when you meet someone new, remember – Be kind to strangers; lest they be angels in disguise!


Your Goal and Your Timing……… Are both right?


So, here we are again. You are in pursuit of the thing you hold most dear. You think you have done everything right.

Written your goal——————————-CHECK

Set your deadline——————————CHECK

Asked for help (devine guidance) ———CHECK

Worked your plan——————————CHECK.

However despite the above, you don’t achieve the goal.


Is your goal wrong or is your clock in need of attention?

Think about the variables.


Work ethic.


If  your goal is important to you, RESET YOUR CLOCK AND GO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

Maybey your clock had stopped. change the battery and go again.

SHORT POST – How ALL Resolutions Can Be Acheived


It’s that time of year when we make resolutions. But STOP! Look back. What did you NOT achieve last year? Why? Correct that, do it again and you have a greater chance of success!!!

It’s so simple but true.

What Does That Thing You Want Look Like?

What are you looking for

A wise man without a map will get lost in any country. Where as a fool with a GPS will not!

Seems that more and more people are ‘looking for something…..’. Whether it be a new job, partner, opportunity or whatever. Then a question hit me : Do you know precisely, what this thing looks like”? If you do not know precisely, then how will you know when it is right in front of you?
Take a time as you go through your day to ponder this thought. The clarity that it will give you will act as a map. It will give you a clear destination. From that, you can decide which route you are going to take to get there.

Success is a journey; not a destination.

As always- if any part of this resonates with you please pass it on. Empower someone
To grow into the person they should be.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.


Who holds you accountable?

I have been thinking about this for a few weeks. I read a quote which read:

“If you want something that you have never had; It stands to reason, that you must do something that you have never done”!

The above got me thinking. If you were going to run an important race, you would get a coach, or personal trainer, right?. Helping you you to do the thing that you have never done, so you can have that which you have not achieved.

The trainer in the example above is holding you accountable to yourself. Looking out for you, ensuring you are staying on track (pardon the pun), to reach your target.

In other aspects of you life you have a Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal (or a BHAG). This is something that, at the end of your life, you want to be able to say I DID IT! So, the question is this: If your goal is so important to you, who holds you accountable?

I am growing a network marketing business. The reason I’m doing this is to be able to be able to see my Grand children (when the day comes). Whenever and wherever they are! The thought of one of them calling for me and I couldn’t get there, wakes me up in a cold sweat!

To achieve my goal, I need to help people. As a direct result, the more I help, the bigger my business grows. Now, with the subject of this blog in mind, I have decided to change from goal setting to goal achieving. I have asked those around me to hold me accountable.

  • I have set a goal.
  • Written it down (On our fridge).
  • Told my Daughter and my Wife, the goal I have set.
  • Rolled up my sleeves.

The people around me love me and will push me to achieve that which I haven’t done. Look around you. Set a goal. Write it down. Tell someone who wants the best for you. report back to them.

I will feed back at the end of the week, how I did with my goal.

As always, I didn’t put this post out there fore it to sit on a server somewhere. If anything in it inspires you, please use it to empower someone else.


This is what succes looks like

This is what succes looks like

As we look back on the efforts of the Saddledome I would not be me if I didn’t take a moment to thank those who helped me get to where I am.

The man in the picture is Mr. Bob Andrews. He helped me to read a program (schedule in Canada). The picture is of him runnun a marathon. We are used to people telling us things can’t be done. Proove them wrong Bob.

Others that should be mentioned.are:
My brother Kevin, my family, Roger Norman, Alan Savage, Mile Batchelor, Gerry Dunne, colin Venn, Dave Cordrey. Nick Darling, Leroy HansonMike Ellis, John Merrideth and Ken Beckingham. If I ‘ve mised anyone, it was not intentional.

In life, take time to look where you’ve come. Or how will you know you’re going in the right direction?
