When you look back over your life, what would be the high points?

I want to take you back in time. I want to tell you about a simple statement that rocked my world and packed a power-full punch for everyone in the room.
The words were spoken so quietly, so softly, they would have been easy to miss – and yet, everyone stopped, sat up and took notice.
It was a few years ago now. I was with a group of people in a side room at a business expo. Beyond the hustle and bustle of the show, I was leading a group of business owners and execs on a ‘Make It Happen’ Masterclass.
It was all about setting goals, creating clear intentions – making an action plan for the future each person in the room wanted to create.
Picture it: some in the room were suited and booted, perfect hair and designer labels, some were in smart separates, a few were more casually dressed, but still absolutely in business mode.
There was a ripple of business ego and oneupmanship – you know that feeling that sometimes creeps up at corporate gatherings? That subtle, insecurity-driven boasting that has people citing big numbers and casually dropping their ‘successes’ into the conversation?
It came to one of the most pivotal points of the masterclass – the moment at which each individual was asked to share what they wanted to achieve, what they wanted their future to look like.
And that’s when it happened…
While others were getting themselves tied up over the elusive ‘it’ they were seeking and running the usual conditioned responses about “financial freedom”, “security” and needing to have “enough”, one lady quietly mentioned that she used to work in palliative care, and not once had she heard anyone nearing the end of life say they wished they’d made more money.
Everybody stopped speaking, a few pens dropped onto the table top and then, silence.
What’s really important?
The lady took a breath, then continued.
She said, when she’d worked with people nearing the end of life, they told her they wished they’d spent more time with their families, got outdoors more, maybe kissed their crush back in their school days, even married the ‘other’ one.
Never, she said, had she ever heard someone in their final hours say they wished they’d spent extra time in the office, floated on the stock market, bought more companies or made more money.
It’s true, isn’t it?
People might look back and say they wish they’d spent more time with the kids, told people they loved them, enjoyed more of the outdoors, never said those angry words… but when it really matters, when we’re looking back over our lives, will we really be wishing we’d spent more of our time building our cash reserves?
What’s REALLY important to you?
I want you to take a moment, right now.
I want you to think about what’s *really* important for you.
If time was running out for you, what would you want to do with the moments you had left?
When you look back over your life, what would be the high points?
Would there be any regrets?
When you’ve had those realisations, coming back to the now, what do you need to change?
Stop. Breathe. Realise.
Take time to smell the flowers AS WELL AS the coffee.
Tell that person you love them.
Relax.
Check in with your authentic self – what do you really want from life?
There’s no point in stockpiling cash if it takes you away from all the *really* important things.
Family. Friends. Loved ones. The great outdoors. Fun. Spirituality. Helping and encouraging others. Adventure. Whatever it is that floats your boat.
Sure – have ambitions.
Sure – have an amazing intention to aim for. Have several. But please, please, know WHY you’re doing it and let it be about more than dollars.
Until next time,

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The pandemic is becoming permanent, even as it ends. Why? Because we did not pass the cabal’s election laws. Had we allowed the cabal to make fraud the norm in every state, then they would have been able to throw future elections even without a pandemic. We did not pass those laws so now the pandemic is permanent…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

At the moment, Socialists hold the reins of power in their hands, and in doing so, they have weaponized the DoJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security significantly enough to change the Patriot Acts definition of who constitutes domestic terrorists. For the Democrat Party, control is essential, and seeing the light of an oncoming train, they are desperately attempting to rearrange…

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

This case is not about whether vaccines are effective, useful, or a good idea. It’s about whether this federal executive branch agency has the power to force millions of people working for or with a Medicare or Medicaid provider to undergo an invasive, irrevocable, forced medical treatment, a COVID shot. It’s a bureaucratic power move that is unprecedented…

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

The “Defeat the Mandates” march called for an end to vaccine mandates nationwide. Dr. Peter McCullough applauded the doctors and health care workers who stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and those throughout the nation that fought the good fight against medical tyranny. “We never had a full-throated endorsement from our government agencies, the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA, nor the White House task force,”…

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Since Biden has come to office, almost every nation that used to depend upon America for their security is realizing how wrong they have been and are now either arming themselves with more weapons or re-aligning with China and Russia, even if temporary. What is brewing in the Middle East – as I have been repeatedly warning – is a Nuclear confrontation because…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself. But why stop with the Biden’s? Speaker Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr. has been linked to at least five businesses under investigation for alleged fraud…

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system. While both of these developments are not declaring an end to mass vaccination, they are setting the framework to announce a…

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The former corporation of Senomyx, once headquartered out of La Jolla, California, allegedly used aborted Fetal cells in its food and beverage products while in collaboration with some of the world’s largest leading food and beverage corporations. It’s up to us as individuals to do our own research and question everything about anything, right down to the ingredients in the fragrances and beauty products we purchase…

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Putin was severely stung by the collapse of the Soviet Union and what he perceived as gloating on the part of American politicians and others in the West. Putin set it as his primary goal to get payback for what he viewed as the insults that were levied against Mother Russia. I recall at the time commenting that we needed to tone it down…

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s sudden change of direction leaves one to wonder if he is genuine in his thoughts and motives. Has he finally figured out that masking, isolation, jabs, and distancing never availed us any good? Probably not. Johnson has endured increasing pressure to resign due to his cultic mandates. Being freed from vaccine passports, mask mandates, classroom restrictions, isolation…
