Books, Vegas, Travel, A $7000 event and what my doctor told me

In the blink of an eye, 1/12 of the new year is gone. It seems like a moment ago we were all celebrating the turning of the season, the blank canvas that promises all that the previous year did not deliver.

What did you learn in January?

What actions did you take that were new, pushed your boundaries and challenged your being? Did you challenge your thinking and your daily habits?

What books did you read?

Here’s what  my January looked like. Some great wins and a few ‘yep need to fix that’ realisations.


  • Consumed 4 books

  • Elevation by Stephen King – Fiction

  • Brief Answers to Big Questions by Stephen Hawking – Non Fiction

  • The Greatest Secret in the World by Og Mandino – Non Fiction

  • The 3 Secret Cities by Matthew Reilly – Fiction

Have to definitely recommend both the non fiction books. The level of thinking of Stephen Hawking is frankly extraordinary. And Og Mandino (author of the Greatest Salesman in the World) shares some amazing principles in his book (The Greatest Secret in the World). The fiction books were a great escape. I might go so far as to say Elevation might be King’s best work in the last 5 year. It’ short, powerful and very though provoking. A feel-good book by King if you can believe that.

Purchased 3 books to read

  • Prosperity by Charles Filmore

  • The Healing Letters of Myrtle Filmore by Myrtle Filmore

  • Millionaire Success Habits by Dean Graziosi

The Filmore’s were the founders of the Unity church and teach the principles of prosperity. Looking forward to finishing these (yep – started them).


  • Enrolled in a 4 day $7,000 course in Las Vegas

  • Completed the written segment of my Masters in Metaphysics

  • Focussed on sales and funnel building

  • Completed 2 zoom calls with my coach (at 2am)

Very excited to attend Tribal with my coach Randy Gage. And I’m one step closer to my Masters in Metaphysics. Now I just need to write a 5000 word thesis, and a 10,000 word thesis for the PHD. I’ll get there.


  • Booked a 3-week holiday with my wonderful wife

So looking forward to taking my beautiful lady away for a well deserved break. Some sun, shopping and lazy beach time.


  • Prepped for my Wizard Arises event in February

  • Began preparation for The Wizard Unleashed event in October

Ok, here’s the plug. If you’re feeling held back by something and want to move forward in your life, if you feel you have something to offer to the world but feel you can’t, you may want to look into this event. That is all.


  • My doctor told me I’m not a good patient because my cholesterol levels have not changed in 3 years. Oooops. Yep, definitely some improvements needed here.

Time to switch the diet up I’m thinking.

This month was also an incredibly sad time for the family as we said goodbye to a dear friend who passed away on the 9th. What did I learn from this? – The experiences we have every day are what we will ultimately remember and be grateful for. I want to increase my experiences. I encourage you to do the same.

Why do I write this?

Mostly for me — to capture what my month was like. I know that these events will fade into the blur of 2019 if I don’t capture them whilst they are fresh. And you know what, I don’t want to look back on 2019 and say… “what happened again?”

So, what was your month like? Share your thoughts below. I’d love to know.

Until next time.
