Short Term Distractions vs Long Term Results

Before I get into the good stuff, I have something that I want to quickly run past you.

You see, if you mess this part up (it’s a before-you-start mindset) — then no matter what I share with you or what system you use, you’ll not achieve any long-term results.

Elise vs Libby is a concept I came up with to help demonstrate the two camps or categories (or models) that most of us as human beings operate in.

Although Elise and Libby are not real “flesh and blood” people per se — their traits are absolutely real and based on real people.

You’re currently one of ’em.

Which one? … well, you’ll need to read the rest of this page to discover that.

But know this one of them struggles get results. The other one makes it look easy.

Meet Elise:


Hi there!…. I’m Elise. ( 33 ). I run my own business. I’m a wedding and child photographer.

Well, I say “business”, But I’ve really been “playing at” having a business since 2015…That’s what? Three years I guess. Things haven’t picked up the way I thought they would. I have a hard time getting clients.

But I’ve upgraded my kit, I’m revamping my brand, and I ’ve got some courses and retreats booked.

It was kind of hard to get the money for things. But I know to get results, I need to take “inspired” and massive action – even though everything in me is screaming out in fear. 

Anyway, I’m also trying to get some side projects up and running. I’m trying to see how I can make money with those as well.

Things are a bit chaotic at the moment. I want to change things up. I feel like there is a lot of stuff coming at me.

Sometimes, I feel like I’m on a train ride I don’t remember paying a ticket for. And I also can’t seem to get off because the train doesn’t stop.

There’s so much pressure all the time.

I need someone to give me all the steps so I can go ahead and do the work.

Anyway, I’ve got lots of stuff to do at the moment. I gotta go…


Meet Libby:


Hey…I’m Libby. (37). I’m currently managing my family’s business. Nothing big – a small school and some rental properties.

Like Elise, I did the business thing for a while. I used to be a marketing coach.

But I decided to take some time off from the whole thing. I was just tired, burnt out and dealing with depression.

I wanted a different approach to making money and living life.

I was tired of running on the hamster wheel and chasing the money.

Constantly doubting myself and looking for “magic” solutions.

It’s exhausting.

Nowadays I’m focused on looking inwards and getting more connected with self.

Don’t get me wrong, I do want to have my own thing. I do want to make money but now, I see it as one part of the bigger picture.

And the truth is, every time money and things have come into my life, I’ve noticed that it wasn’t because I took loads of action. It was because I let go of the strings and tried not to control everything.

The more I ease into this way of looking at myself and life, the more paths begin to open up. A path WILL always open up for me. There are many ways to get to where I want to go. I see evidence of it every day.

Speak soon,


Here’s How Elise approaches creating lasting change in her life.


Life is outside in for Elise.

She’s always feeling the pressure.
She’s looks for fast solutions to ease it..

With a mindset of “fast solutions,“ she keeps getting distracted.
She buys into products and ideas that promise fast results or predict a lot of pain if she doesn’t take action.

You know the products I’m talking about…
They usually have a lot of hype, hoopla and “easy button” and “all in one” promises.

With what little money she has, she buys these products.

She just wants to know the steps she needs to take to get to her destination and wants guarantees that they will give her results.

She starts with good intentions.
She takes fast action and implements the technique – and 90% of people screw up at this point.

There’s a lot going on in their minds.

They think they’re not getting results fast enough. They get distracted with the next “bright shiny” technique and product.

And the vicious cycle continues.

Perhaps 10% of people will actually do something and take action like Elise.

They may achieve some results.

It won’t be anything long-term. But there will be a short-term relief.

But at the first sign of a problem, she finds herself back to the start of the process.

She’s been on the lookout for the next shiny-object / technique. Because the last one didn’t really do the job.


Here’s the thing:

When you’re constantly riding the wave of the voice in your mind – you know the one – the playground bully that is always judging every single move you take;

You’ll always feel the need to keep looking for fast and easy solutions and results that are not sustainable.


Buying into “easy button” solutions is what got you here in the first place.

I know this because I used to be like Elise a few years ago.

I wanted to improve my life but felt trapped in the never-ending cycle of trying to stretch the money I had till it hurt.

I was buying every cheap product that promised “fast results”.

Then I discovered manifesting and “think and grow rich”.

I was “investing” in high-end coaching programs.

I didn’t know where the money was going to come from, but I was going to “manifest” it even though I was under so much pressure and couldn’t trust myself and my decisions.

I always felt restless and tired.


Most times, I was reluctant to face my day. My key mode of survival became AVOIDANCE.

When I was not engaged in a whirlwind of activity, I avoided having to engage in any way.

I was spinning my wheels. What I had didn’t feel like a real business.


And at the same time, I had so many other side projects.
And all were tied together by my anxiety, worry and fear.

Of course, I didn’t get any results. I was fried. Burnt out, heavily in debt and looking for a safe place to land.

And after a year of doing nothing, the penny dropped.

I had absolutely nothing to lose by going in a different direction.

The Libby Role

Here’s how I took on the Libby role. And approached my journey into creating lasting change….

inside out thinking

Libby is 100% focused on looking inwards and she doesn’t really care HOW the solutions come. She only knows that they WILL come.

Even before she’s experienced a change in herself and situation…

She trusts herself, her innate wisdom and her journey.
She looks to build on it until it becomes a habit.

It’s ALL about her innate wisdom and the clarity that she gets from it.


She focuses on understanding the core principles that create the experience.

Because everything in this universe always rests on core elements or principles.

She knows that understanding these principles are what allow her to create her OWN path with ease.


Healthy creation starts with a CLEAR MIND.

Her understanding of how the human experience is created is what helps her get a clear mind. Because they move her away from fear and uncertainty of the process.

With a clear mind, her innate wisdom and clarity appear.
Pressure, anxiety and stress are less.


It’s quieter in her mind.

Insights and “aha” moments appear.

Things begin to flow.

Her perspective on what she intends to create begins to change or sharpen.

Inspired action rises up. And she creates lasting results with ease.


When she encounters an issue — and there’ll be a few of them — she sees them more as opportunities to clarify her position.

Her insights from her place of clear mind mean that there are no roadblocks.

“Problems” are always only ever temporary.
There’s always a workaround and a solution.

When you're able to SEE the principles behind our experience as human beings, "shiny-object" products and "magic-bullet" solutions become irrelevant and invisible.


Because you’ll CREATE your reality, rather than respond to what you THINK is happening to you.

You will in effect be living from inside out rather than the other way around.

It’s not about techniques or steps or taking “massive action”.

It’s more about WHO you are and your alignment to that space within you where fresh ideas and solutions are ALWAYS presenting themselves to you moment by moment.


People that see these basic elements of what form our experiences as human beings can’t fail to create speedy results.


Because our problems don’t come from outside.

We can only get accurate and speedy results to the point where we understand that simple fact.


Stress and difficulties come from how we use our thinking.

Through a clear mind, our innate wisdom can and WILL guide us to create and manifest with ease.

But only if we allow it.

Stopping. Giving up. Looking for the next “magic bullet” solution the minute you hit a problem or experience resistance…

Only results in you earning nothing.


Looking at life from inside out means you’re creating YOUR own roadmap. One that is custom designed for YOU by you moment by moment.

You’ll never run out steps or ideas of what to do. Your clear mind will ALWAYS open you up to my innate wisdom.

This is how you win Big.
