Whether we like it or not, it is common for us all to get sucked in the hypnotic way of life. We accept, without question, the drudgery of a 9-5 routine which brings us a mediocre life. Add Instant Gratification to the mix (home with 4 bedrooms x 2 bathrooms, two cars, massive mortgage and you know where I am going with this) and we are setting ourselves up for a stressful, broke and unrewarding life



I too, was broke, unhappy and forever worrying about money. How I dislike this empty, anxious feeling that kept me in an attitude of scarcity. What could I do to help myself? I wanted this emptiness gone forever, as I’m sure you do too!

I joined Wealthy Affiliates, an online business opportunity. Yes, it takes guts, with all the naysayers that continually knock these opportunities without ever trying them. I feel sorry for these people. The only way to know is to actually “have a go” and form you own opinion.


From my research and experience, I now know Wealthy Affiliates is an authentic and trustworthy Company. This is half the battle won! There are the scammers out there who suggest we can be a millionaire overnight. No, it takes hard work.

Wealthy Affiliates offer a free start to try before you buy. This is proof of their integrity and I took advantage, joined for free and thoroughly reviewed what was on offer.

This enabled me to have a look at the platform and do the following:

  • Read the main feed for the strong supportive Community and notice how questions are answered or people are referred to a related training link to help them
  • Start the training to experience the walk-through video of each lesson, followed by the text. I love the video, because I could pause (to do the action) and restart at will. I am a visual learner. Are you?
  • Familiarise myself with the navigation around the site. This was a bonus for me! I often find myself frustrated when on a new site and can’t get to where I want to go. Grrrrr!
  • Ask my own questions in the 1-on-1 Live Help for 7 days.
  • And much more


Wealthy Affiliates is not a get-rich-quick platform, nor is it for people who expect results for doing very little. In Wealthy Affiliates, you have to stay focused, work hard, commit yourself and play “all in”. If you can honestly see yourself doing this, then this is a good fit for you. If not, read no further.

When I first started in ernest, I had so much to learn. Us baby boomers were not brought up with digital skills and this was to be my first challenge. I can remember, in the beginning, being so frustrated at every turn and it would take me a day to get a task done. Now I can do these things in five minutes! Woohoo!


There is a tidal wave of people taking to the online business model to escape the humdrum job and the bricks and mortarTIRED OF BEING BROKE business which were the only options we had. These old ways of life put our retirement out to age 65+ and now we are being asked to work until we are 70.

The economy, being the way it is, is causing many bricks and mortar businesses to close. They have given all they have got, often put mortgages on their homes in order to start or keep their businesses afloat and more. What heartache they face when they have to shut up shop. I feel for these people. There is a better way.

Often College Graduates with degrees are finding it hard to get placements.


My determined curiosity drove me to find out what all the fuss was truly about. I needed to find out for my own satisfaction. I dabbled with selling my artworks online and through Facebook and they both flopped. What I was learning here, was what not to do!! HA HA! I was under the delusion that if I put them up online flocks of people would buy. No, it doesn’t work that way.

I was not easily swayed from my decision to somehow work online and have a laptop business that I could take anywhere. This was going to happen for me and I would find a way.

I kept looking, looking, looking and finally found Wealthy Affiliates. The beautiful part about it was I didn’t have to re-invent the wheel. Meaning, try to learn “the how, when where and why” on my own. It was all there for me, where to start, the how to do it, when to do it and where to do it etc. Thrown in I have a like-minded strong supportive Community to help me through my challenges day in and day out.

It is time, Ladies and Gentlemen to treat yourselves to a chance to embrace and conquer a rewarding life. The one we all deserve!



I had the guts to take the plunge, prove the naysayers haven’t ever given it a go and therefore speak unqualified words, and I now know I am on my way to leaving the emptiness and scarcity behind me.

Do you have the guts, grit and fortitude to help yourself? Don’t let it suck you back in.

Cheers, Jill


After being brought to my knees financially, I had to do something! I researched many many online business opportunities and found THE one! I went from being an emotional wreck to an abundant vibrant woman. The happiest I have been in my life!


I joined Wealthy Affiliates for FREE! Firstly, from experience I can assure you that Wealthy Affiliates is an authentic and trustworthy Company. That’s half the battle won!

Anyone can join for free and TRY BEFORE YOU BUY! YES you can even start the training to get a feel for it’s value. WhereBlossoming Again else can you do this?  Amazing when you think about it. When I first joined, the number one challenge, for me, was to master the navigation around the site. I am a vibrant senior however my tech savvy skills are not so hot!

I conquered the navigation and was amazed at all Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. Just by reading the questions and answers, the encouragement posts in the main community feed assured me I was in the right place for like-minded people. The community truly has our backs all the way to the top!

Among the community are entrepreneurs and now Wealthy Affiliate millionaires that are willing to share the actions they took to help us get off the ground and grow our business. Where else would we get mentoring at this level for free?

We can join for FREE, (literally try before we buy) check out the inside and when ready to grab this opportunity with both hands, we become Premium Members at a cost of $US19 for the first month and then $US49.00 per month. We can pay annually and save.


In order to get our businesses off the ground in Wealthy Affiliates, we need to prepare our mindsets to be mentally and emotionally strong. There is little point in joining if we are not prepared to develop a winning and dedicated mindset. Trying half heartedly will not get us there.

Mental StrongholdHang out on my website which is a personal diary of my journey to personal development and happiness.  In my articles I describe Overcoming Obstacles, Belief Systems which hold us back, How To Love Life More and and a wealth of free training to prepare our mindsets for an amazing journey.  A good place to start with Ideas For Professional Development

I have been with Wealthy Affiliates for 5 months and honestly have made but a pittance! Do you know what, being a 70 year old, I needed that time to grab a hold of the technical stuff (I am still challenged frequently), to learn strategies, sales and marketing skills, get my head around social media and create a 5-year plan with yearly, monthly, weekly and daily goals.

In 5 short months I am now prepared, have the mental and emotional toughness required and finally my ship is afloat and tied up at the financial gain wharf. The $’s are starting to follow me.

Wealthy Affiliates is not a get-rich-quick platform nor is it for those that believe all they have to do is build a website and the people will come. This is a lie.

To succeed in WA we have to work harder than we have in our lives, be consistent, persistent, focused and play “all in.”  If we are not prepared to totally commit and focus, then this is probably not a good fit for us.


Unrivaled training that will take us from knowing nothing (just like me) to building our very own website, writing compelling content, how to build a following (traffic) social media strategies, and even how to rank No1 on Page 1 in Google Searches.

What staggered me, and still does, is the free software packages we are given like Search Engine Optimisation, Plugins for Headers and Footers, Keyword Search and many more. We are given the Lite Version, and of course there is a charge to upgrade to the Pro Version. Do you know what? I am still using the Lite Versions and finding them more than adequate!

We even have access to the Founders, Kyle and Carson to help us out! Our questions are answered in the main Community Feed so that we all can benefit from the answers. Cool eh?

Check the list of all the benefits here!


Surprisingly age is not a factor in Wealthy Affiliates. In my opinion, the 18-25COMMUNITY
year olds, that already have digital and technical skills that are way superior to the baby boomers, could turn there lives into a dream run. There is a tidal wave of people taking to the online business machine to help them opt out of 9-5pm boring jobs that bring them little but a mediocre life. Imagine our young ones putting in a focused effort for only 2-5 years, maybe 8 years or however long it takes, (as opposed to a lifetime 9-5pm job) to achieve financial freedom and an early retirement. Cool and achievable!!

The only other option is to follow the old way, work for someone else (which fulfills there desires) and leaves the workers out in the cold. Those that complete University Degrees often have difficulty finding placements. Am I right? Doctors, lawyers and skilled others start their own bricks and mortar businesses and are locked into rent leases, overheads and wages etc. before there is a single $ for them. Why do we do this to ourselves?

I believe self education (learning the modern) is fast becoming the new norm.

As for the 25-80 year olds (YES we have 80 year old members) the same opportunity is beckoning. I am a SENIOR baby boomer and even I have been able to embrace the technical aspects of modern online business. Hey, for me it ain’t a dream run, however with mental toughness I’m doing it! Furthermore, I’m loving conquering it! Why not you? Wealthy Affiliates is truly for everyone, anyone who has the ballsiness to go for it, have patience and claim modern business mindsets that bring more wealth and more happiness.

What are you hesitating for?  Today is the day! JOIN FOR FREE AND TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!


I challenge you to deeply research the modern ways of life, to become self educated and arm yourselves with the tools that will take you out of the mediocre (forever in debt) lifestyle to a healthy, wealthy and happier lifestyle.

Cheers now, Jill

We need to break out of our hypnotic rhythm! Our stagnation, complacency, boring repetition and even laziness is robbing us of our lives. Robbing us of the very essence of dynamic focused energy.


DAYS, MONTHS, YEARSWe look around at our friends, family and most of the population in our country and see everyone letting life slip by.  What enables this?  Inaction!  Why wouldn’t I, everyone else was. One day I said:

“Not me! I’ve had enough of watching my life dripping away, drip by drip, draining me until there is nothing left. I feel dead, even though I am breathing and walking around, I might just as well be dead and gone.”


Basically, get off our butts and take action. Inside of all of us is a “go-getter, a mover and shaker”.  Inside of all of us is massive enthusiasm, dynamic energy that is laying dormant. Why is it laying dormant? Because we don’t give ourselves anything to be excited about, to be passionate about, to want to achieve before we die.

Firstly, we need to reignite our movers and shakers, our go-getters, and I am reaching out to you today, to help you overcome obstacles that are keeping us in stagnation, boring repetition and keeping us stuck in a mediocre life. Mediocrity brings us misery, financial anxiety, stress and keeps us “wanting”, needy and our fires have gone out. Do you agree?


Together, we have identified stagnation, complacency, boring repetition and laziness depletes our energy. To claim back our dormant movers and shakers, our go-getters we need to give our passion free rein. Do you remember moments in your lives where you felt invincible? Perhaps you hit six after six in cricket, you saved someone’s life, you won the Fairest and Best Award, your secret family recipe for a fruit cake is adored by many, you are a brilliant dog trainer, horse jumper, canary breeder etc. etc. The moments when we feel invincible have us soaring with the eagles. Agreed?

Our passions are taking us to these heights. Once we have the invincible feeling back in our lives, then we can take action and put our newfound dynamic self, our enthusiasm, vibrancy and abundant energy back into play and we feel like we can move mountains.

We have reclaimed our dormant go-getters, our movers and shakers, embraced them once more and we begin to see opportunities around us. We now have choices and can choose paths that stoke our fires and put excitement in our day.


When we are enthusiastic and excited about an event (music concert), a happening (wedding), a project or a hobby we areTAKE ACTION working on, we can’t wait to take action. Why, because we are so keen, ready and firing. This driving force is our passion and amazingly we ignore it most of the time.

I put this challenge to you. Look and find something we are passionate about, can’t get enough of, will skip a meal because we are so engrossed and an hour feels like five minutes when we are engaged in it.

Do you feel you have abundant energy, focus and willingly put in massive action because you enjoy it so much. Even if we are faced with an obstacle that is stopping us doing it, we will find a way around it, to make it work because we are so focused on achieving the end game.


Overwhelm comes about because we are swamped with too many things to do and we make it worse by feeling we will never have enough time to do it all. We put ourselves under impossible pressure to get it done by ………….. Fill in the blank. This, my friends, happened to me today. I have three major projects on the go at the same time, all of which I am not familiar with, that I must get done in order to get where I am passionate about going.

I was rescued by a video I watched. Dean regularly works out at a gym and hates waking at 5am, driving several kilometers to get to the gym and once there, often has to wait in the queue to use a piece of equipment. These are all excuses that challenge him every day to give gym a miss. Guess what fires him to go? How good he feels at the end of the session: physically, mentally, health he has given to his body and that uplifted feeling of I did it!

I totally relate to the “feeling so good” once I have conquered anything I wanted to achieve. Do you? It is all about focusing on the good feeling and going through the action to get it.

In my case, where I have three fiercely challenging things going at once he suggested breaking it down to small steps. Every step achieved will bring that “great feeling” reward and give me the courage to tackle the next step. You get where I’m going with this eh?

I needed to take the “time pressure” I had imposed on myself off as well. That was easy to do. I simply accept it will take as long as it takes, I will have conquered a massive learning curve (will feel elated with myself, that “I did it feeling”) and every step will be closer to my end game. Woo Hoo!!!


These actions actually make me “Captain Of My Mind, Master Of My Soul” which is The Invictus Games Motto. Achieve this motto and we can naturally take massive action and make amazing things happen in our lives. Furthermore, this is HOW TO LOVE LIFE MORE! Let’s go to it and bring it home eh?

Great sharing with you once more and I invite you to join the conversation by sharing your experiences. This way we can help each other out and grow together.

Cheers now, Jill


My experience of the Law of Attraction and hypnosis downloads. These modern new concepts are authentic however, will have us fleeing back to our comfort zones unless we open our minds to our explorers. Be brave, embrace the new and reap the benefits.


My first experience was the movie called “The Secret”, which claims that the Law of Attraction holds up with metaphysicalDOES LAW ATTRACTION WORK research and this is explained in the movie. The metaphysical is a topic worth exploring as it brings body, mind and spirit out into the light and this knowledge is well worth having.

I watched the movie with an open mind, was prepared to learn more about our brains and science, then decided to get my feet wet and give it a try. How can we accumulate knowledge without getting out of our comfort zones, having a go and making our own informed decision?


Most people interpret The Law of Attraction will bring us what we desire by simply visualising and thinking our way to instant gratification. I was guilty of this for a while. It wasn’t long before common sense prevailed and I realised it would take magic to turn my life from rags to riches overnight.

Norman Vincent Peal’s book “Think and Grow Rich” requires effort, action and consistency to change our mindsets from a negative one to a positive one to reap the rewards.

With my feet back down on the ground I embraced the Law Of Attraction’s techniques to make a start on my journey to riches.


DOES LAW ATTRACTION WORKThe knowledge gained prepared me to get my abundant mindset in front of me by way of a vision board. A vision/goal board is pictures of our goals we want to achieve. My pictures are of a 20-25 meter lap pool, my “Mercmobile”, African Big 5 Safari, The Blue Train, and more. Preparing a vision board is not unusual and I strongly suggest we create one.

Seeing my dreams in front of me everyday gives them power and they become more real and achievable as my brain takes them on board by repetition.


There are three different funnels to the Law of Attraction featuring three individuals, namely Kathryn Hurst, Bob Doyle and Joe Vitale. I have purchased product from all three. I noticed Kathryn’s take is metaphysically informative and discusses her experience to discovering the LOA. Bob Doyle’s take is “feet on the ground” consequently he is readily acceptable without the mysterious and Joe Vitale is a bit of both.

I strongly suggest purchasing The Manifesting Movie as a start because it has the new updated version of “The Secret” (a better version), The No B/s Manual, two hypnosis downloads and a Cheat Sheet. In my opinion it gives a strong grounding as to what to expect from LOA products.

Working with the Manifesting Movie products will give us a taste of hypnosis, grounding and a simple 5 step formulae to use every day, where possible.


DOES LAW ATTRACTION WORKThe brilliance of these modern concepts for personal/professional development is, no matter what we may think of them originally, once we start using them they have our mindsets focused on healthy, positive and possible better outcomes for our lives. There is no difference to “I don’t like exercising but I will do it because my health will benefit from it”. You get where I’m going with this. Often we don’t like something, but we do it anyway, because it is good for our well being.


It is said in the movie how “what you need suddenly appears in your life”.  This is absolute truth and has occurred over and over for me personally.  People have shown up, I’ve been drawn toward new ideas, things, that have taken me further along my path. In fact, dare I say, I have manifested my next step over and over.  I have had many small but significant successes along the way.  Having just reminded myself of the “help” I have received makes me grateful.  It truly is amazing how things unfold.


It is helpful to know where we are now as it is encouraging and sheer joy to realise our progress in say 3 months, 6 months and even 12 months time. Take Action here and find out where you are on your journey.


Something I would like to share with you. I love the hypnosis tracks in this package. Listening gives me the opportunity to take a break, relax and rest for half an hour each day. The benefits to my body and mind of having some simple relaxed down time is extraordinary. I always come away from it feeling recharged and energised with no tension in my body. How would you like to feel this way?

The tracks themselves are simply repetitive positive instruction e.g.” take massive action and make amazing things happen”. I laugh to myself when I regurgitate these words in my everyday conversation. Want to put a smile on your face? Experience this! So much fun.

One of the most common issue with people these days is weight loss.  Take action to try a sample for free!.


My life, my happiness and my well being has benefited enormously by focusing on the positive healthy trainings available in these modern self help programs.

It has been fun chatting with you, and again, I love writing about this stuff because it reaffirms how helpful these programs have been for me personally.

Right now, I deserve some relaxed downtime so I’m off to have a break and listen to positive jargon. Woo Hoo! Cheers now Jill


Precise and fresh ideas for Professional and Personal Development. Modern concepts that will take your authority to another level, open your eyes to simple techniques. Soar like en eagle, leave the turkeys behind. Let’s cover some action steps to get out of the mediocre mindset and into a successful winning mindset.

The ideas presented here will probably not be what you expected. Read to the end and be surprised like I was when I discovered them. I wasted over half of my life in a mediocre mindset and regrettably I can’t get that back.


The practice of instant gratification has the masses jumping into unnecessary debt and gimme gimme mindsets. The normIDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT says it is okay to take a $700,000+ mortgage over a 4 bedroom, 2-3 bathrooms, 2 garages home with all the bells and whistles like swimming pool, big screen TV, the latest floor coverings and furniture. In my opinion this is not okay.

This action immediately locks people into a mediocre lifestyle working a boring lifelong job (Just Over Broke) usually working for a boss to repay the mortgage. Is this action a healthy wise decision? No, it is not, however the social norms approves and encourages this behaviour.

At this point in my rhetoric, I would suggest the brave, courageous people who realise their mistake, would sell the big mansion and downsize to a basic smaller version and immediately reduce their mortgage by half. Sound radical? No, take the emotion out of it and it is plain common sense isn’t it? Start small and build up. I ask you, why live with the mistake? There’s no time like the now to start again. Are you a brave liberated adult or stuck in instant gratification?


Liberated adults make their own wise decisions and choices which often goes against the social norms. You might ask how do I become a liberated adult? How about standing back and witnessing some of the misleading garbage that we are fed, complacently accept and follow like sheep? Question your behaviour and create your own unique path in life and follow in the footsteps of the entrepreneurs. Look at what they do, how they do it and so on. The blueprint is right in front of our eyes. It is time to see it.

The abundantly wealthy people in this life make their own decisions, think outside the box and create their lives. Once we take the first step to be our own mentor, be totally responsible for our life path and where it is going to take us, we open up a world of opportunity.


Our comfort zones are as restricting and strangulating as some of the social norms. Wallowing around in our comfort zones keeps us stagnating, leading a mediocre life along with the masses and oh so cosy. I’ll just do what everyone else is doing. The liberated adult is buried underneath all the brainwashing and childhood conditioning, doing what Mum and Dad and all of our friends and peers are doing. Believe me, if you listen, your will hear your liberated adult screaming for a life of exhilarating action, excitement, curiosity and passion. Get me out of here!


IDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTResolve to take charge and actually fully live our lives. Our lives can be purpose driven, meaningful and happier, in a heartbeat, if we take actions to make amazing things happen. Instead we accept our mediocre mindsets and follow like sheep. Do we know what would happen if we discovered what we are passionate about and uncovered a dormant talent? I can share with you, once I discovered my passion which led to my talent, my life is full of exhilaration, enthusiasm and meaning.

What are you passionate about? It will be something you absolutely love, can’t get enough of, become totally absorbed with and don’t notice the hours drift by. I get so absorbed doing what I love that I often have to force myself to take a break and eat.

Buried in this passion we will discover we have a natural talent that is eagerly waiting to be exposed, explored and used. This talent will take us out of a mediocre lifestyle and into an entrepreneur mindset. Hey, success is around the corner, so to speak, however not instant. We need to live our talent, breathe it and dedicate ourselves to growing it. Opportunity abounds when we are focused on this one thing, our talent.

We then need to develop ideas about how we can use our talent to provide a lifestyle which brings up how are we going to market it, where to market it etc. etc.


The modern way to market anything these days is online. Do you have your own website or do you need a website? I needed a website and after doing my due diligence, researching and reading I discovered Wealthy Affiliates. We can join for free and check out the training, the “hand holding” community and build two websites hosted by Wealthy Affiliate. I had zilch IT expertise and made a start.

After 3 months I had learned mobs and now I have a solid foundation and am ready to soar. This can be you! You have my IDEAS FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTreassurance that you will be in the best of hands and success is a few months away. Wealthy Affiliates is not a scam, nor is it a “get rich quick” platform. I have to work harder than I ever have, however, the only way I can fail is to give up.

“How can you fly with the eagles when you are mixing with turkeys?” One of the key factors with a new business is to surround ourselves with like-minded people. I knew I was mixing with the turkeys and thought how can I surround myself with people who already have, or are working on successful winning mindset. Wealthy Affiliates have a 2 million strong community that is doing just that. Among them are entrepreneurs and millionaires who have nailed it and willing share their experience and guidance to keep us newbies on the right path. I ask you, what more do you need?

More on Wealthy Affiliates. I strongly recommend you join for free and actually do your own due diligence. The platform is there for you to explore in all aspects and make your own liberated adult decision.


Once again, I have enjoyed chatting with you and sharing my journey to a winning mindset. Embrace these ideas, join me and let’s claim an abundant happy lifestyle. Cheers Jill
