My July 2014 Monthly Goals Report

my july 2014 monthly goals report

Every month, I write a detailed monthly report about the progress that I’m making towards the goals and resolutions that I publicly stated on my blog earlier in the year.  This is my July 2014 Monthly Goals Report, which goes over each goal that I set and the progress that I’ve made on them so far.

Since sharing my Monthly Goals Reports since January, I received such an amazing response from people on my blog.   People have been sharing with me how much I’ve inspired them or how helpful it’s been for them by me openly sharing my progress.  It’s my hope that you can take away something from this report that will help inspire you to achieve your own goals.

My Goals Breakdown

I’m now going to go into each goal that I committed to for 2014 in detail and share exactly where I’m at with it.  Also, be sure to check out the original 2014 goals and resolution video blog and my previous Monthly Goal Reports to compare my progress.

Health & Fitness

1. I will easily be 160 lbs at 6% body fat and compete in the WBFF on July 26, 2014.

stefan pylarinos wbff 2014Result:  Goal Achieved – 151 lbs at 6% body fat and competed in WBFF on July 26, 2014!

Previous Month: 150 lbs at 6% body fat

I’m happy to say that I have achieved this goal for 2014!  I competed at the WBFF (World Beauty Fitness & Fashion) on July 26, 2014 and got up on stage with my new physique!  Months of hard work in the gym and dieting paid off.  While I am 9 lbs lighter than I expected to be, I’m making it my goal for the remainder of the year to gain lean muscle, while staying lean.

I’ve also published 2 video blogs that share my exact weight loss diet plan and my weight loss workout plan in detail, if you’re curious to know what I did to achieve this goal.

I’ve included some pictures below so you can see my progress over the months.

2. I will easily complete a 7-10 day cleanse using The Total Wellness Cleanse by December 31, 2014.

Result: No progress made yet

Currently planning on doing this cleanse during October 2014.

Finances

3. I will easily be making $30,000/month consistently by December 31, 2014.

Result: $49,521.23

Previous Month: $61,075.09

While I didn’t earn as much as I did during June, I did have another fantastic month earning $49,521.23.  I’m very happy that my progress with this goal has been steady and continued to climb.  My income is very well diversified at the moment and the consistency has been steady.

Below, I break down the different sources of my online income so that you can see where it’s coming from.  I don’t share specifics about particular websites due to the protection of certain creative endeavours I’m involved in.

Clickbank: $25,010.07

My Clickbank earnings include my Kindle Money Mastery course, 6 other Clickbank products that I sell (which I keep private) and affiliate earnings.  Income here dropped after the launch of my course of How To Write A Book In Less Than 24 Hours during May.  My Kindle Money Mastery course has been growing every month and I’ve been taking a lot of action to making it one of the best courses out there for helping people make money online.  I’m very proud of the progress I’ve been making with it.  I also continue to make passive income from several products that I sell on Clickbank that I started 4 years ago that continue to make me money on autopilot.  And finally, a large portion of the income is also from affiliate earnings that I get from this blog and other websites that I have also.

Kindle Publishing: $8,212.48

My Kindle publishing earnings include all the royalties that were deposited into my bank account for June from all 100+ Kindle e-books that I sell on Amazon.  My earnings from Kindle has been steady and consistent, which has been cool.  I have some books that fluctuate in earnings and I’ve been implementing a new strategy for Kindle publishing, but primarily using my Kindle books to funnel into backend businesses that I have.  I’ve realized I can begin making MORE money on the backend from my Kindle books than I will on the front end, which has been very appealing to me.  I’ve begun teaching this new strategy in my Full Disclosure members area for Kindle Money Mastery.

ShareASale$137.48

This is more affiliate commissions that I earned from promoting some products on my blog.

Coaching: $6,543.12

This is earnings from 1-on-1 coaching that I do with my clients, as well as the Project Life Mastery Mastermind Group that I offer for people that want to work with me.  While coaching isn’t a passive income stream by any means, it is something that I enjoy doing and get a lot of fulfillment from.  I love working with people and seeing the success they have by applying what I teach them.  I have many long-term clients that pay me every month and I continue to help them build their businesses and make money online.

Other: $8,667.88

This is all a bunch of other income that wasn’t worthwhile separating into new sections, but it includes payments from a few affiliate promotions that I did during July, as well as earnings from Udemy and Fiverr.

Rental Income: $950

This income isn’t internet related, but I still included it since I wanted to add up my gross income for June.  I have an investment property that I rent out every month – I don’t make any passive income from it, it just covers my mortgage.

I was amazed to see such a increase in my income during June, especially since I feel I didn’t work that much.  One of the biggest reasons for the increase was I got paid out for some affiliate promotions I did a few months before.  But, this is the power of passive income.  I’ve developed systems that all run on autopilot that continue to make me consistent passive income every month.  I also continue to focus on adding value to others and contributing, but for the most part, most of my video blogs are all automated too!  It’s exciting to see how things will continue to increase for me by the end of the year.

4. I will easily have saved at least $100,000 by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I achieved this goal in May, which was much earlier than I expected.  I wanted to have saved at least $100,000 of liquid cash that I could have in my company, not including from the investments that I make every month.  Every month, I focus on investing much of the money that I earn into stocks, mutual funds, saving for real estate properties, as well as back into my business.  I always believed that it’s not how much you make, but how much you KEEP.  Learning how to manage money has been an important priority over the years that has allowed me to build my net worth to where it is today.

Business

5. I will easily have published at least 100 videos blogs on Project Life Mastery by December 31, 2014.

Result: 55 video blogs

Previous Month: 46 video blogs

During July I published 9 video blogs and 2 guest posts on ProjectLifeMastery.com, with the total video blogs for this year being 55.  Here they are below:

I cranked things up with the video blogs during July, publishing 9!  It was nice to take a break from some other projects so that I could really focus on this more.  I’ve been receiving some great feedback on all the content that I’ve been putting out lately, which is encouraging.

6. I will easily launch my new money-making course by May 1, 2014.

Result: No progress made yet

Haven’t had a chance to focus on this too much right now.  Currently don’t want to switch gears too much from Kindle, as I’m getting a lot of momentum in that space.  I did launch a new course on How To Write A Book In Less Than 24 Hours on May 1st, but I don’t count this as part of this goal, as I was originally planning to launch something outside of the Kindle publishing arena.  Will likely begin to focus on this more in a few months.

7. I will easily launch my new Kindle service by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I ended up achieving this goal during February and launched my Done-For-You Kindle Ready Book Packages, which sold out in one hour!  I made 10 packages available that each consisted of a professionally written Kindle book consisting of over 5,000 words in a profitable niche, a quality e-cover with stock photos, as well as a description for the book.  I was absolutely blown away by how fast it sold out, as I didn’t even launch it to my entire e-mail list – only my Kindle Money Mastery members.  Since there was such a big demand for this, I decided to launch this again during June and it also sold out in a matter of hours!

8. I will easily launch my own Kindle software by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

I’m super excited about this project as I have a team of software developers and designers working on it.  This is my first software that I’m developing and there’s been a bit of a learning curve with it.  I’m investing a lot of time and money into this, but I know it will pay off in the long-run and help a lot of people (while solving my problems too).  Things couldn’t be moving along better here – hoping to get this launched in the coming months.  It’s currently in testing mode.

9. I will easily launch my new coaching program by March 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

Launching my new coaching program was a big achievement for me during March.  I decided that I’d take on more clients this coming year and put together some coaching packages that would allow me to help people make money online.  While my rates for working with me 1-on-1 are fairly expensive as my time is limited, I decided to also put together a Group Coaching Mastermind for those that are unable to afford to work with me 1-on-1.  This has allowed me to form a mastermind group and work with people in a group setting, which so far has been excellent.  If you want to find out about my new coaching program, click here.

10. I will easily complete Autoresponder Madness and implement what I learned into my business by March 1, 2014.

Result: Delayed, in progress

This project has been delayed much longer than I expected, as I realized that I need to finish some other projects that are more urgent and are required for me to complete this course.  I’ll definitely be getting around to this goal later, as it’s still a high priority for me and it’s actually one of my favourite online marketing courses ever.

11. I will easily launch the new design for Project Life Mastery by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress, expected for August 2014

The design is finally ready to be launched this month!  It took me ages of working with designers with this, but I’m finally happy with the result.  It will still be a work in progress, as I’m planning on continuously making improvements to it.  I’m excited to share it and make it public!

12. I will easily write and launch a new Kindle e-book by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

Yes!  Another goal achieved for this year already.  I wrote, launched and released my latest book called Kindle Marketing Secrets – 33 Ways To Promote Your Kindle Book And Get More Sales.  So far, I’ve received an awesome response from it and people have been loving it.  It’s also selling really well and is something that will continue to make me passive income for years to come, as well as promote my Kindle Money Mastery course.

13. I will easily launch my own physical product on Amazon by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

This is a new goal that I’ve set for myself since signing up for the Amazing Selling Machine.  The goal is to launch my own physical product on Amazon to sell, which will likely be a supplement (still brainstorming).  Some progress has been made on this, but it will likely be delayed and focused on more later in the year as I’ve decided to put some projects on hold during summertime.

Lifestyle

14. I will easily move into the Sheraton Wall Centre penthouse on the 48th floor in downtown Vancouver by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I moved into the penthouse at the Sheraton Wall Centre on the 48th floor overlooking beautiful Vancouver on February 1st.  It’s a $1.7 million dollar penthouse and it’s still surreal.  Just a few years ago I was broke and struggling, living in my friends living room… and now I’m living in a penthouse!  Very awesome.  🙂  I’ve now furnished the place (which was a lot of work), and now I’m still furnishing it with smaller items.  I’ll have to do a video blog and give a tour of the place once everything is set up.

15. I will easily own and be driving a Corvette Stingray by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

stefan corvette stingray

This was a goal that I achieved during March.  Soon after doing my February Monthly Goals Report, I started researching the Corvette Stingray and just wanted to see what was available in Vancouver.  I soon learned that there was only a small limited supply of these cars made available in Canada, as each dealership is only given one and they recently arrived here.  Every place that I contacted no longer had it available, except for one.  I ended up buying the next day the only 2014 Corvette Stingray that was left in British Columbia.  Was it meant to be?  I think so!

Very excited to have achieved this goal.   It was much earlier than I expected, but I was able to take decisive action on it and I don’t regret it one bit.  I’ve included a picture of me below with it. 🙂

16. I will easily spend a weekend in California by August 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I achieved this goal in June!  The plan was to originally go to Las Vegas for a weekend, but I changed it to go to San Jose, California with my sister to the Tony Robbins Unleash The Power Within event.  It was my 6th or 7th time going (I can’t keep track) and it was a remarkable experience to share with my sister.  We had a blast!

17. I will easily spend 2.5 weeks in Bali, Indonesia by February 1, 2014.

stefan baliResult: Goal Achieved!

I spent most of January in Bali, Indonesia and had a blast.  I travelled with my friend Mike and I recorded a lot of videos while there.  It’s absolutely beautiful there and I highly recommend to go if you get a chance!

18. I will easily travel to San Diego for the Traffic and Conversion Summit by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

frank kern traffic and conversion summitAfter Bali, I ended up going to Los Angeles and then to San Diego for the Traffic and Conversion Summit.  It was an amazing event – over 2,000 people attended.  I was able to hangout with some friends from a mastermind group I’m apart of and meet some internet marketers that are making millions online.  It was very inspirational and now I’ve got a lot to apply to my businesses for 2014 that will take things to a whole new level.  I did a video blog on what I learned from the event here.

19. I will easily take a 1-week vacation and travel somewhere by December 31, 2014.

stefan pylarinos rio de janeiroResult: Goal Achieved!

I achieved this goal by traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on July 30th for 2.5 weeks.  I’m currently in Rio de Janeiro as I’m creating this blog post right now and I’m loving it here!  My girlfriend is here volunteering and so I decided to come visit her for part of her trip.  Another one of the benefits of living the internet lifestyle!

Social & Relationship

20. I will easily go out and socialize and have fun at least 3 times per week by December 31, 2014.

Result: Been going out 3 times per week

I’ve kept this goal going and stepped it up more during July.  I wanted to take more time off and enjoy myself more during the summer.  Most of my time was spent with friends, family, and with my girlfriend.  I’ve learned more and more how important it is to really enjoy life fully and that life is about magic moments.

21. I will easily have a fun get together and party once a month at my penthouse by December 31, 2014.

Result: Didn’t plan anything

During July, I decided that I wouldn’t plan anything as I wanted to be focused on my fitness competition.  I didn’t want to party, eat out, or drink alcohol – I needed to be focused.  So nothing happened here with this goal.

Habits & Personal Development

22. I will easily meditate 30 days in a row for 20 minutes at a time by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

I’ve gotten re-focused on this goal lately and have been on a roll of meditating on and off for the last few weeks.  One thing that has helped me with this has been reading the book The Willpower Instinct, as it talks a lot about the benefits of meditation.

23. I will easily go 30 days without biting my nails by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

This goal was very easy for me to achieve once I committed myself to it.  I was biting my nails for so long out of habit and once I just decided to be conscious of it and focus on changing it, it was fairly easy.  I had a few times where my fingers would come up to my mouth, but I’d quickly stop myself.

24. I will easily go through Tony Robbins Personal Power II by February 1, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I completed this goal during January.  It was my 4th time going through this awesome program.  My mastermind group wanted to go through it together as a group, which I agreed to.  I find that every time I go through programs again and again, I continue to get more out of it.  This is a powerful program and it helped me with many of my goals also.

25. I will easily read at least 12 books by December 31, 2014.

Result: Read 9 books

I’ve read 9 books so far during 2014.  I’m currently reading The Power Of Habit – Why We Do What We Do In Life And Business.

Here’s a list of books that I’ve read so far this year:

26. I will easily respond to friends and family members within 24 hours for 30 days straight by December 31, 2014.

Result: Goal Achieved!

I achieved this goal in January and did a great job with it, but I feel that I need to focus on it a bit more again.  Since being back in Vancouver, I’ve been having a lot of people wanting to hangout with me or talk to me, which has been very overwhelming.  On top of it, I continue to receive hundreds of e-mails and messages everyday through my blog and Facebook which I’d like to minimize.  I’ve found that the more successful I’ve become, the MORE people want to hangout with me and be around me.  High quality problem, I know… My plan is to create some new systems to better communicate with others and have my support team handle as much as they can as well.

27. I will easily perform 1 act of contribution every month (volunteer, feeding families, donating to charities) by December 31, 2014.

Result: In progress

During July I increased my level of contribution!  I made some charitable donations that I’m proud of supporting a few causes of some friends.  I’ve also continued to make contributions using Kiva.org.  I also made a donation to HappyChild, helping children in Brazil.  Beyond that, I’ve focused on making small contributions on a daily basis and living with contribution as my #1 human need.

Final Lessons Learned In July

July was another fantastic month!  The biggest goal that I’m most proud of was finally achieving my goal of competing in the WBFF fitness competition.  This goal required a massive amount of my time, focus and energy.  While I’m happy with the result and relieved it’s over with, I left the event more inspired than ever to improve my physique.  My goal moving forward is to add some more lean muscle mass, while staying lean.

This leads me to one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned in July, which is:  the moment you achieve a goal, you better immediately set the next one.

Often times, once we achieve one of our goals, our standards begin to drop.  I’ve noticed that in the past when I competed in the WBFF back in 2012.  After achieving that goal, I ended up lowering my standards with my diet and ended up gaining too much fat along with the muscle mass that I was aiming to put on.  The fact was, I didn’t have a compelling enough goal immediately after achieving it, or a strong enough why.

This time around, I’ve learned that I always need to have goals and make sure my WHY is strong enough so that I keep my standards high.  The training NEVER stops if you want an extraordinary life!

Another lesson that I’m always reminded of is CELEBRATING your success.  We don’t celebrate enough and we’re often way too hard on ourselves.  I’ve noticed this with me in the past and I continue to work on celebrating all the little successes, as well as the big ones.

I also want to reiterate another lesson that I’ve mentioned before, which is focusing on less.

Finally, the biggest lesson for the month was experienced the day before my trip to Brazil…

The last week before my trip to Brazil I simply had way too much going on.  It was a stressful week, as I had photo shoots planned, filming planned, coaching and a fitness competition that I had to prepare for.  On top of that, I needed to pack and prepare for my trip to Brazil.  I miraculously pulled it off, which just proved to myself what I’m capable of.  However, all of the stress and overwhelm wasn’t necessary for me.

I had a powerful experience the day before I left to Brazil, which was I realized that I am required to have a travel VISA to enter Brazil.  Normally getting a VISA for Brazil would take 2 weeks, but I showed up at the Consulate of Brazil in Vancouver and I was able to convince them.  I desperately persuaded them to get me a travel VISA within a matter of hours, as I already had my flight and hotels booked for the next day.

Even though the person said “No, it’s impossible to get one that fast”, I still persisted and told them that there HAD to be a way to get the VISA in an emergency situation like this.  Thankfully, someone at the office helped me out and I’m forever grateful to them for that.

The lesson learned here is to first and foremost, always make sure you’re prepared and ANTICIPATE the potential challenges that can happen.  Second, there is a lot of power in having faith, prayer, persistence, and taking massive action.  This entire experienced reinforced all of those important elements of life.

It also reminded me the power of COMMITMENT – if you are truly committed, you can always find the way.  In my case, I could have given up when the person told me it was “impossible”, but I would not take no for an answer and my commitment is what made it happen.

Thankfully, everything worked out and I safely made it to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 🙂

These are some of the biggest lessons that I stand out for me during July.  Overall, I enjoyed putting this Monthly Goals Report together and I look forward to doing one again for August.  I’ve found that this public commitment has been pushing me to stay motivated and accountable as well, which is helping me to get more done also.  Thanks for reading!

    Hi Stefan, I’m a longtime reader, fist time commenter. As always, I am impressed with the great progress you’ve made on on your 2014 goals!

    First, I want to first let you know how much value Project Life Mastery has added to my life. Your work has been a great source of inspiration and motivation for me and continues to keep me working to improve my life on a daily basis.

    I realize you’re busy traveling right now, but I thought I would let you know in case it is helpful that Oprah & Deepak Chopra have a new free 21-day meditation series (20 minutes a day) beginning on Monday, August 11th that I’m going to be taking part in. When I registered, I remembered reading that you had a meditation goal. I just thought I would pass that along in case you hadn’t heard about it. You can register via either of their websites. A 21-day series would put you very near your 30-day goal. I find guided meditation much easier as a beginner.

    Thank you for all your hard work!

    Jennifer, http://heythirties.wordpress.com/

    • Hey Jennifer, thanks for the comment and I’m glad I’ve been able to add value to you! I really appreciate you sharing that with me – is there a place I can find out more about it? I’m a fan of Oprah and Deepak Chopra, so this might be perfect for me! I’ve been doing a 10-minute meditation almost everyday which I’ll be sharing more of in my new morning ritual video too. It’s been working well for me and I plan on working my way up to doing more and more.

  • Great stuff Stefan!

    This is an achievement in itself…

    “Other: $8,667.88 This is all a bunch of other income that wasn’t worthwhile separating into new sections”

    My goal is to be able to write off almost 9k that wasn’t worth messing about with! lol

    Millionaire Fastlane was a great book, would love to get your feedback on what was actually worth the read from your list above, perhaps something as simple as 1-5 asterisks after the title.

    Love the goal setting mindset, what do you recommend product-wise to help with this? I’m kinda hit and miss at the moment, some hard core focus is a definite “need” for me.

    Would be cool to chat with you at some point on Kindle strategy Stefan, I also have some author reviews starting to materialize at my site. (Von money done, Derek Doepker & Steve Scott on the way.) Gave your book a positive shout in mine by the way! (Not going to bang on about it here, but get it on ya list! 😉 )

    Chris Naish.

    Edit: Forgot to mention… If your looking for testers on that software… 😉

    Edit2: Got a broken link on your autoresponder madness there buddy.

    • Thanks Chris! All of the books that I’ve read this year have been beneficial to me and worthwhile reading. It really depends on what your focus is currently in your life and what could benefit you the most. If it’s finances, then there’s books that would benefit you differently than for me.

      The 100 Day Challenge is the best goal setting program I’ve been through. Been through it multiple times, I think it re-launches in October.

      Sure thing, let me know what questions you have about Kindle, I’ll do my best to help! Are you a member of my Kindle Money Mastery course and Full Disclosure? I teach all of my latest, most advanced Kindle strategies in there.

      • I’m not a member Stefan, I will look at it sometime soon however.

        My own book is actually all about teaching authors how to make money on Amazon, I’m pretty knowledgeable in this area, but you can never learn too much so you’ll definitely see me inside at some point.

        With rrgards to the questions, I’d have to email them to you Stefan. Would it be best to do it via your contact page or perhaps you could email me? (I’m assuming you can get my email address via Disqus. :-s)

        This 100 day challenge sounds interesting, going to look that up after this comment.

        • Sent it to my support team by clicking the Contact button at the top, then they’ll forward it to me.

          • Done! Look forward to reading your replies Stefan! 🙂

  • Ron McLeod

    Hi Stefan. I’m glad you are enjoying Brasil. I do too. I am in Salvador- actually at our beach home 30 minutes from the SSA airport. I’m just going through my Date with Destiny workbook again. I really get a lot of value from Project Life Mastery & I’m grateful you are doing it. I started when I was looking for a review of Date with Destiny which you made. I am going to the Leaders Boot Camp in San Diego and to UPW with my family in Dallas, Texas. Thanks for everything & enjoy Rio it is a beautiful city!

    • Awesome Ron, I’ll be at Leadership Academy in San Diego and UPW in Dallas too! Be sure to say hi if you see me there.

  • You are a huge inspiration Stefan. Thank you.

  • Methmal

  • Hey there Stefan,

    Congratulations on another stellar month. Yes, even though you didn’t make as much money as last month, I still consider it stellar because you’ve been breaking goals and achieving them as well. To me that’s very impressive! Keep up the good work and…

    Keep inspiring!
    Warren

  • Darrell

    Hey Stefan, congrats for the awesome progress on your goals and for
    constantly inspiring us. You get so much stuff done that it would be
    really nice to get a glimpse of how you spend a typical day. Even if you
    let us know in brief it would be really helpful. Thanks in advance and
    keep up the amazing work… God bless!!

    • Thanks Darren! I’ll consider doing something like that. Already have so many video blogs lined up to be published.

  • Matt Clark

    Congrats for your success Stefan!..Just found your site recently and have enjoyed reading about your income reports and health/fitness..Very inspiring. I also would be interested in reading if you publish a post about your investment strategy i.e. stocks, real estate, etc. Thanks again, and congrats on another great month!

    • Thanks Matt! I’ll definitely consider doing something like that down the road.

  • Again great progress Stefan! In retrospect – it’s really cool to see how much progress you’ve been able to make the last couple of years. Very inspiring to see how your thoughts and actions have shaped your life.

    Recently I realized I asked to many questions during the coaching call and saw that I was taking more than I was giving. Even with the video I made I don’t think it was enough for what you bring to the table man haha 🙂

    I’ll be sharing more of your content in the future and am going to pick up your life mastery book.

    Anyway, thanks again for everything man. This blog has had a huuge impact on my life.

    Hi Stefan

    Congrats on your fitness goal for the WBFF. I too
    have set a fitness goal. I entered a winter transformational challenge
    at the local gym. It runs from 1 June to 31 August 2014.

    My
    starting weight was 86KG/189lbs and 30% BF. Midpoint (6 weeks) I was
    80KG/176lbs and 18.9%BF. My goal weight is 75KG/165lbs and 8% BF.
    Ultimate fitness goal is to win the challenge on 1 September 2014.

    I
    have struggled with success in biz and have never known why. It just
    seemed that the success seemed to have eluded me constantly. Then I
    examined my belief systems (Tony Robbins/T Harv Eker). I concluded that
    since reading the Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding by Arnold S a decade ago,
    I cemented the belief that success in every other aspect of one’s life
    only comes after success in a physical/fitness aspect. Hence with Arnold
    champion bodybuilder – top actor – politician. He has always been an
    inspirational story to me that I often speak of (starting off in Austria
    and using the mind as the most powerful tool to gain success). As such,
    I now realize that I must satisfy this belief and achieve the fitness
    success that I believe is the start of all round life success.

    I
    have not had success with IM either in the past. But, your KMM is
    something that I understand and believe in so I purchased it as well as
    the FDM.

    I look forward to my success with KMM as I truly believe that this is the turning pint that I was looking for.

    I can truly relate to your beliefs and library and the mentors that you have chosen for self development!

    Well done on the service that you add to people’s life with this blog and to the success that you have achieved!!

    Regards,

    Reven

    • Thanks Reven! Excellent job identifying that as your limiting belief, but understand that you can have success in your life regardless of your physical condition – that is just a made-up belief that you’ve created. Good luck and continue taking action, I believe in you!

    Hello!
    My name is Sarah Zubair. I’m 19 year old, and am doing everything I can to create success that revolves around the things that make me happy. I’m in college right now, and have three years left to go. Would you consider making a video directed towards young people and what they should do to jump start their lives? Perhaps even sharing mistakes you’ve made that have ultimately helped you grow into the person you are today?
    All the best.
    Sarah.

    • Hey Sarah, welcome to the blog! At 19, you definitely have a head start amongst most people. I’ll consider doing a video blog on it, but the biggest thing I’d say is doing what you’re doing right now: focus on growing and becoming the best you can be. I was blessed to have discovered self-help when I was 17 years old and I am where I am today because I have consistently focused on reading, learning and growing everyday. Amazing things happen if you commit yourself to personal development at a young age.

    Hey Stefan! I recently started publishing books on kindle within the last two months. I am a bit concerned about the potential effect that the new Amazon Unlimited program will have on my prospective income. Can you please do a video detailing your opinion on Amazon Unlimited. Do you think that it is a benefit to publishing ebook authors? COuld you also please explain your answer on the benefits or lack there of in the Unlimited program? I sincerely hope that you make a video answering my questions, and addressing my concerns. Stay blessed!
