For four years, I was dreamless.
I lived through the pain of knowing my parents were dying and then watching them go one at a time. My father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and given 6 months to live. He managed to hold on for 9 months. During that period, I did what I could to spend time with my parents. About 6 months after my father passed, my mom was diagnosed with lymphoma, something she had beaten twice before in her life. But this time, without her husband of 51 years, she did not have the fight left in her to survive. Roughly 18 months after the diagnosis and almost exactly 2 years after my father died, mom left to be with him.
Time seemed to fly by after that.
I still did not have a dream. Sleeping was also difficult.
My wife didn’t say anything, but I doubt she was happy with my lethargic self. I was content to live off of the money we had inherited from my parents’ passing. Then one day, she said she wished she could visit her grandchildren in Illinois during the summer, and that started me thinking. It would be nice to live in Florida during the cold months and live in Illinois during the spring and summer.
We started looking at houses in Illinois. First, we looked at less expensive ones. But that didn’t satisfy us. We looked at nicer ones. Suddenly, my mind went from satisfied to wanting more. I knew that if I blew the entire inheritance on a big house in Illinois, we would have to go back to work in order to keep our lifestyle up. That perked me right up. I knew what we had to do.
The dream is all about the future. It can be the near future, like next summer. Or it can be a few years down the road. It doesn’t matter. It has to motivate you to action!
That is the number one way to tell if you have a dream or are living in present day hell. Are you motivated to action?
If you have a dream, and you are ready to take the next steps to achieve that dream, let me know by filling out the contact form below, and Yvonne & I will show you what we are doing to get that big house and increase our lifestyle.

You, your family, and the World needs you to step into your greatness:
Are you living a life of quiet desperation?
Tom Beal shares some thoughts on kicking your life up a notch!
The numbers are absolutely terrifying…
Nearly 96% of ALL entrepreneurs are destined to fail online.
(Even when they know EVERYTHING about internet marketing)
Do you know why? The answer is here:
This could be happening to YOU!
You could be doing everything right: A unique product, a great
website, decent traffic and even a good social media presence.
But still be missing the single most critical element for success.
A winning mindset.
Fears, limiting beliefs and devastating patterns of self-sabotage
could be holding you back and killing your success. Have you
ever felt their cold and merciless grasp?
Well it gets worse…
Because of how subtle they are and because of how deeply
ingrained they get in our brains, they’re pretty hard to identify.
And harder to overcome… Without the right help.
But not all hope is lost. My friend Jeanette Bailey (psychologist
gone rebel) has just released a brand new program called
“NLP Ninja” – designed to destroy bad mental patterns and
reprogram your brain with an unbreakable winner mentality.
Seriously, go take a look:
To your success,
Micheal & Yvonne – WSOInsiders.com
PS – You really owe it yourself and your future success to
overcome your roadblocks now!

Today, people are chained like never before. Financial headaches are stressing people out. Taxes make our efforts seem to be in vain as the government aims a little higher for our hard earned cash. Identity theft is running rampant and computer viruses can compromise what you believed to be a safe computer with the click of a mouse. With this type of stress beating down everyone, it is a wonder that anyone can make it.
Fortunately, we have a solution.
We have a way to help you earn more and give less to the government.
We have a way to help you save a bunch of money on things you buy every day.
We have a way to help you track your finances and set your budgets.
We have a way to protect your identity.
We have a way to protect your computer.
The best part is that we have a way to do this and still help you earn a residual income.
Want to know more? My team is preparing for a huge webinar where we are going to tell you exactly what we are doing to blow the doors off of the stress producing problems we face – we are going to reveal these chain breaking methods very soon.
If you want to know more, simply fill out the form below and we will let you know when the webinar is going to be.
When you start earning money, the first thing that hits you is the tax bill. It never fails!
I have heard horror stories of marketers who have done very well, only to be hit with a tax liability of $152,321.12 the following April because they forgot to get an accountant on the staff who could help them save some of that. It is not only the rich who have to deal with taxes, entrepreneurs (even those just starting out) need to know what kind of tax strategies they should pursue to reduce those expensive surprises at the end of the year.
A new app is now going to help entrepreneurs with this problem, by helping them track their expenses and mileage when they are on business calls. If you want to know more about it, sign up for more information at http://cashwakeupnow.com/taxes and we’ll show you how you can earn a significant income and how you can keep a larger piece of it out of the hands of the taxman!
As the NFL football season fast approaches, we see in the news how each team is planning for a run for the Super Bowl. Even teams that were 3-13 last year are talking the championship talk. How many head coaches would get raises for saying that they are hoping for a .500 season?
Having the vision of winning the championship is what makes a team come together. A coach has to share the vision with enough conviction that the players all buy in to the same vision as if it were their own. This is not as easy as it sounds and it is why many head coaches become motivational speakers after they retire.
The daily details are important, of course, but without that target on the horizon, a team has little chance of capitalizing on the good decisions made during the preparatory stages. When the adversity becomes unmanageable, having that unified front all striving for the same end can mean the difference between a team that gives up and one that pulls through.
Set your goals, but do not forget to create the vision that will make those goals the stepping stones to achieving that vision. Your daily decisions will be much more productive if you have found your vision. Even your dreams will fall into place with your vision once you have internalized it. That is when you seem to become unstoppable!
So if you are finding that your struggles are making it harder than you believed possible to achieve your goals, it may mean you forgot to internalize your vision. While this is something that is unique to each person, and not easy to describe, the process must be gone through in order to create your own success. Take the time to write your ambitions, your dreams, your cravings and then see what ultimately is at the center of all of those things. Our dreams and visions are really already inside us, but until we actually sort them out from the chaos within ourselves, we are not going to get where we think we want to go.
Some great books to help you with this are Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, Napoleon Hill’s Think And Grow Rich and David J. Schwartz’ The Magic of Thinking Big. As a powerful add on, you will also want to use The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Personal Workbook to go along with your reading.
Take your vision development seriously, because it is the one thing that will change your effectiveness and productivity more than all the goal setting alone can do. If you are already working hard and seeing limited results, it may just mean your vision is in need of correction. Schedule some time to hone your vision, and see your productivity soar as your time is spent on activities that take you toward your dreams and vision, instead of on things that hold you back.
