April 2015

“Work is only work if you would rather be doing something else.”

I have not worked a day in the last forty years.


In 1974 I made a conscious decision that I would spend the rest of my life doing only the things that truly gave my life meaning and fulfilment. Every day I am told that I am lucky and that I have lost touch with reality … after all some people actually have to earn a living.

I have never understood the concept that earning a living needs to be hard work and/or something that makes me unhappy. I have travelled the world teaching the things that have given me my amazing lifestyle and I have somehow managed to earn a pretty good living.

So what’s the secret!

Well it wouldn’t be a secret if I told; would it!

But what I will do is share some of the principles that have made my life so amazing.

Firstly, I realised that my life is a personal responsibility, not a collective one. That above all I had to be true to myself and do the things that made me happy, feel fulfilled and made me grow into the person that was worthy of my dreams and aspirations.

Second; I had to find the things in life that I was passionate about and build my future around them. That was easy, I live in an amazing world that is full of wonderful possibilities, but I realised that the things I do naturally and easily were not what I was looking for, they would only lead to boredom, frustration disillusionment even if I became really good at them. I had to find the things that were exiting because they challenged every perception of me; Things that would expose me to other possibilities; that would introduce me to an ‘other that the obvious’ me; and force my physiological growth and personal development.

Thirdly; I had to learn not to be controlled and paralysed by my fears. Every day I had to do something I was afraid of, until I had mastered fear.

Then I had to find a way of bringing all these things together in a way that would become a valuable service to people, because I realised that people would give me all the money I wished to earn provided I was serving then in a way that would be helping them make their dreams come true. And TAG Consciousness was born.

Slowly over the years I realised that hard work was an urban legend that had nothing to do with success, that hard work was the effect of a cause … a cause that was not appropriate for the desired outcome … that wisdom was the ability to ferret out the perfect input for the desired outcome … and I seemed to be getting wiser every day. Life had just become an amazing adventure in love … and it’s such an easy way to live!

On the 18th April 2015 I will be doing my ‘Unleashing Entrepreneurial Potential’ one day workshop where I will be sharing the simple amazing truths that have allowed me to be successfully self-employed and given me complete financial security, happiness and peace of mind. Please come and join me.

Always keep working towards your greatest possibilities.

Live Passionately.
