How well are you playing the game of life?

Life is a game just like a game of soccer.  You don’t give up in the middle of the game just because you are losing. You play till the end. After the game you go and practice and practice so you do better the next game and have a chance of winning!

Here are some suggestions to play your game of life better, whether it be in the fields of health, wealth, relationships, sport, spiritual and physical well being etc.

  • Invest in your self and learn the skills of the game you want to play.
  • Speak to people who are experienced in the game you want to play and who you can learn from.
  • Stay away from negative people
  • Take baby steps and don’t give up
  • Be patient and enjoy the game

Here are some examples of games I have played and are playing at the moment.

  • Opening new businesses
  • Investing
  • Windsurfing
  • Climbing Kilimanjaro
  • Kite Boarding
  • Speaking in public
  • Paragliding
  • Mentoring
  • Writing books
  • Teaching others how to become rich – my most rewarding game

Quote……“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going” Jim Rohn

Please be careful of unrealistic promises and get rich quick schemes…

I have just read about 195,000 people who have lost money in another scam.

Take responsibility for your own money because no one cares more about your money than you do.

 Invest in yourself and educate yourself so you are able to make your own informed decisions about investments.Here is a very simple formula that works:

  • Pay yourself first every month
  • Spend less than you earn
  • Invest in property
  • Economise at all times
  • Be patient

I want to share something with you that changed my life

As you know I’m a property investor, professional speaker and author.

 In 2005 I bought 100 properties in a year with no money. Many people wanted to know how I did it?

 I wanted to share my success secrets with everyone but I had a problem.

 I had a fear of speaking in public!

 In January 2006 I received an e mail about a public speaking course. Believing in the “law of attraction” I signed up for the course.

 Not only did I get rid of the fear of speaking in public but many other things such as kiteboarding & paragliding which are extreme sports.

 In a nutshell the course changed my life…

 The lady who gave the course Jackie Psannis ( ) is going to be running another course soon

 Don’t miss out on this opportunity!

 P.S. There is no risk as Jackie has a full money back guarantee policy. If you are not totally satisfied she will refund you in full.

Contact Jackie and find out more about her course…..E Mail:    Call:  Jackie 082 – 874 59985

Gordon you deserve to win because you are prepared to help so many along the way.  I always wished I had a mentor while I was in the corporate market, now at this stage of my life, you come along giving me prods to keep going in my home business. God bless, Hester

I was slipping into such a negative dark space. I couldn’t even see the wood from the trees.  A simple task that someone asked me to do seemed like they had asked me to climb Kilimanjaro. My life had no direction. I am now proactive, I have more quality focused time with my kids, I know exactly what I want to do with my life and where I am going. Brenda is my Guru! – S Jackson

I have learnt not to get embarrassed over money matters. Before I would ignore it and just think… oh what the heck, it’s embarrassing to argue over money or possessions. I have learnt to save money and look after it as well, which before I actually didn’t care less. I would just spend it. Ricardo

Brenda takes one right back to basics with a really simple and quick methodology. By applying what she taught me after each weekly session, there was suddenly order in my life. I now feel calm, centered, inspired, I laugh more and have more fun. I wake up each day grateful to be living this brilliant experience called Life!  Brenda is dedicated, trustworthy, honest, reliable, efficient and compassionate. She works from the heart with complete passion for what she is doing and the people she is helping. By working with her, you are in the best hands you could be for whatever it is you wish to change – yes – wishes do come true!”. Sibylle Fourie

I received this email which I highly recommend you read… 

- The Cab Ride -

I arrived at the address and honked the horn.
After waiting a few minutes I walked to the door and knocked. 

‘Just a minute’, answered a frail, elderly voice. I could hear something being dragged across the floor.

After a long pause, the door opened. 
A small woman in her 90’s stood before me. 
She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940’s movie.

By her side was a small nylon suitcase. 
The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years. 
All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no clocks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters. 
In the corner was a cardboard box filled with photos and glassware.

‘Would you carry my bag out to the car?’ she said. 
I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.

She kept thanking me for my kindness.. 
‘It’s nothing’, I told her.. ‘I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.’

‘Oh, you’re such a good boy, she said. 
When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, ‘Could you drive through downtown?’

‘It’s not the shortest way,’ I answered quickly.

‘Oh, I don’t mind,’ she said. ‘I’m in no hurry. I’m on my way to a hospice.

I looked in the rear-view mirror. 
Her eyes were glistening. 
’I don’t have any family left,’ she continued in a soft voice.
‘The doctor says I don’t have very long.’ 
I quietly reached over and shut off the meter..

‘What route would you like me to take?’ I asked.

For the next two hours, we drove through the city. 
She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.

We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds 
She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl.

Sometimes she’d ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, ‘I’m tired.. Let’s go now’.

We drove in silence to the address she had given me. 
It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up. 
They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.

I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door. 
The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

‘How much do I owe you?’
She asked, reaching into her purse.

‘Nothing,’ I said

‘You have to make a living,’ she answered.

‘There are other passengers,’ I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug.
She held onto me tightly.

‘You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,’ she said.
‘Thank you.’

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light.. Behind me, a door shut. 
It was the sound of the closing of a life..

I didn’t pick up any more passengers that shift.
I drove aimlessly lost in thought.
For the rest of that day, I could hardly talk.
What if that woman had gotten an angry driver, or one who was impatient to end his shift?
What if I had refused to take the run, or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review,
I don’t think that I have done anything more important in my life.

We’re conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.

But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.


At the bottom of this great story was a request to forward this – I deleted that request because if you have read to this point, you won’t have to be asked to pass it along you just will…

Thank you, my friend…

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

One of the best books I own and read  over and over  is “The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind” by Dr Joseph Murphy.

I bought the book in 1995 when I was going through financial difficulties.

Reading the book and working on my subconscious mind I managed to retire in 1998. 

In 2006 I followed my passion and started teaching others my success secrets so they could also retire.  

I personally do not believe in retiring! I am  going to give you some very interesting facts about “retirement” in a future article.   

Now back to an extract form Joseph Murphy’s book:

“You have a mind, and you should learn how to use it. There are two levels of your mind – the conscious or rational level, and the subconscious or irrational level. Continue reading »

This is a blog post from one of The Streetwise Millionaire Mentors – Brenda van Straaten

All too often we repeat an action or a pattern of behaviour, over and over and over again, always expecting a different result.

 We do this in relationships, in business, with our finances, our lifestyle, our health, etc.

 We often live so unconsciously that we don’t even know we’re repeating the same mistakes.

 Alternatively, we know we are, but we allow our bad habits to run us, rather than grooving in good habits!

 And it’s our bad habits that lead to making the wrong choices.


 If we’re not getting what we want we either don’t have the correct knowledge or we’re simply not doing what we need to do. 

We’re therefore not doing the right actions or we’re making the wrong choices based on bad habits or wrong knowledge.

Become aware of what choices you’re making and the actions you’re taking.

Note how these choices make you feel.

 It’s easy to choose to do something, and it’s easy to choose not to do something.

 When you make the right choices you do the right actions and when you do the right actions you grow, you experience:

  • An increase in self-respect – feeling good about who you are, your behaviour and your actions
  • An increase in self-confidence – believing and trusting more in yourself and your abilities
  • An increase in energy
  • An increase in the willingness to get more done
  • An increase in interest and involvement in people, projects, life
  • An overall sense of more life and living!

 Humorous, but also a lesson to be learnt:

Blonde walks into Absa in Johannesburg and asks for the loans dept. She says she’s going to Europe on business for three weeks and needs to borrow R10, 000. The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce. The car is parked on the street in front of the bank, she has the papers and everything checked out.

Absa agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The bank manager and its staff all enjoy a good laugh at the blonde for using a R5, 000,000 Rolls as collateral against a R10, 000 loan. 

An employee of the bank then proceeds to drive the Rolls into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there. 

Two weeks later, the blonde returns, repays the R10, 000 and the interest, which comes to R141.66

The bank manager says, “Miss, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. 

While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire.

What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow R10, 000?”   Continue reading »

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, When 24 Hours in a day is not enough, Remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee. 

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. 

He then asked the students, if the jar was full? They agreed that it was. 

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. 

He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. 

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’ 

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. Read to the end of this story by clicking on more… Continue reading »

Did you know that the more productive you are the happier you will be ?

If you are feeling low, depressed or not yourself  – get busy and do things that are bringing you closer to your goals.

Get busy and into present time. 

I have mentioned in previous Wealth Tips that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel or have any special talents, luck, money or even an education to be successful.

Just copy other successful people and do what they do !

It’s that simple.

I read an article titled “One Amazing Woman” by Glenda Thompson in a publication called Business in Durban about Margaret Hirsch of Hirsch’s Appliance stores. Read more about this amazing women…. Continue reading »
