An Ugly Visitor with a Message

At our quirky, country house last week, we had an unusual visitor. He slowly sauntered down our drive-way on Tuesday morning to bring me an animal totem message.

He’s MASSIVE, right? And so ugly that he is beautiful!

And the message?


I often daydream about Quantum Shifts and BIG, immediate, leaps forward.

The whole personal development world seems to be “lit ablaze” by Internet marketing and facebook posts that shout about:

10x-ing your results
Quantum Shifts
Creating 7 and 8 figure businesses (oh and doing it in only 6 months!)
Instant Manifestation.
How I went from broke to a gazillionaire in 4 weeks!

And actually, it’s bullshit that I need to de-frag from.

Perhaps you do too?

This “instant results” culture makes anything less than a quantum shift feel like you are failing, doing something wrong and ends up in severe self-judgment and self-criticism.

Now, I’m not saying that transformation is not possible.

I see transformation all the time in my own life and the lives of hundreds of my students.

However, transformation most often doesn’t occur like a big, blasting firework in the sky. It is more subtle, slow and yet super profound.

One thing I’m getting clearer and clearer about is the POWER of the Micro-Movement.

And that’s why this Tortoise came walking into my life, to remind me to:

Take one, small step at a time.   

Just the next, small, forward movement.

Small, gentle, easy and ideally fun and inspiring steps!

And in a year’s time, 2 years, 5 years you’ll look back and say WOW… my life has shifted so much.

Your HINDSIGHT will show you the incredible shift you’ve made, but you won’t necessarily experience those in the moment.

The present will probably feel instead like teeny-tiny moves forward.

On my Private Money Magic Community last week  – one of the participants shared this:

“Yesterday, I sat with my financial advisor, as I do regularly, to touch base with my overall portfolio as many things changed in the last 3 months that meant a massive review.

Let me share some numbers and all of this is due to setting a strategy, keeping to it, reviewing it, and constantly being in Money Magic Energy. When I first started Money Magic in September 2016 my expected monthly income (in today’s terms) at retirement, based on retirement savings only, was approximately 20% of my current earnings (after tax). As of today, it is over 100% of my current earnings (after tax).

Why? There are numerous reasons and I’ll share over time, but the biggest is complete and utter commitment to the journey with money and being so actively involved with Miss Money. She has rewarded my focus, my strategy, my commitment to this relationship…She is just going “Ka-Ching! Ka-Ching!” for me.

P.S. these figures are retirement savings only and excludes my tax-free savings, my rental income from my house and share portfolio – that’s allocated for 1) medical expenses and 2) holidays.”

Having watched this student’s journey over 3 years, I know that she took the small steps and did the micro-movements.   Step-by-small-step.

And yet now only 3 years later, her entire retirement is fully funded. Wow! Incredible result, right?

But the key to her result was the TORTOISE.

Slowly, step-by-step she committed and took the daily, weekly and monthly actions.

All of these cumulatively added up to the significant result.

For the remainder of 2019, instead of stressing and racing about like the “hare” I’m channeling the tortoise.  I invite you to join me…

P.S. Great News… I’m running a 1 Day “Reflect to Reset” Retreat at my Quirky, Country House in the Cape.
