I must apologize I haven’t stayed in as close contact with you as I would have liked. We’ve had a super busy last quarter with the launch of the Genius Test, ilab incubator programs and finishing my new book which will be released in mid 2014. You’ll be hearing more from us in the coming months.
Happy holidays and wishing you a very prosperous New Year! Are you ready 2014 to be your best year yet?
“Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon… must inevitably come to pass.”

5 Steps to make 2014 your best year yet
Here’s a 20 minutes exercise that can transform the way you step in to the new year.
This exercise isn’t about your actions (like a New Year Resolution) or your business (like a business plan) or on yourself (like a personal plan). It is about the year itself: 2014
Remember 1984? It was George Orwell’s book about an oppressed future ruled by a “Big Brother”. We’re now 30 years in the future. It’s 2014. If this was a book, and you are the one who gets to write it, what will 2014 be remembered for?
This exercise puts you in the drivers seat, with 5 Questions that create the synopsis on the back cover of the book, 2014. Take a sheet of paper, and write out your answer to the following 5 questions.
The quality of your questions determine the quality of your quest.
If 2014 was an epic quest, where you get to invent the adventure, what are your answers to the following five questions?
1. Why? Why is 2014 a mission worth making?
Why are you most excited about the coming year and the big mission you will be starting or accomplishing? Why will others be equally excited to join you?
2. What? What are the chapters in the journey?
What are the main challenges and adventures in the year ahead? What are the journeys to embark on and the obstacles to overcome?
3. Who? Who are the main characters in the story?
Who are your fellow adventurers, who are already with you or who will join the mission? Who will your mission benefit, and who will enjoy the results of your success?
4. When? When do the key moments take place?
When are the key scenes in the story? When new journeys begin, when obstacles are overcome and when old chapters end?
5. How? How will the book be written?
Will it be written as an adventure, a hero’s journey, a love story? Will it be written as a comedy, a soap opera or a horror story? You get to choose the genre!
Give it a go and see what comes up. We are often so focused at the content of what we want to do, have or be, we miss the context of the story in which we live out our lives. Set the story first, and much of the rest often takes care of itself.
I’ve included below my own answers to these five questions, both as an example and to share what I’m most excited about in the year ahead.
Remember, 2014 will be a historic year whether we are a part of it or not. We weren’t a part of 1914, but it made history 100 years ago as the beginning of the 1st World War. We are a part of 2014, and so each have a say as to what it is remembered for 100 years from now.
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
~ Abraham Lincoln
Have a fabulous year ahead,
I’ve answered my five questions above for my own journey in 2014. I hope by sharing it, you will be inspired to join me and be a part of it!
In 2014 we’ll be growing Entrepreneurs Institute to connect entrepreneurs and changemakers in US, Europe and Asia. It’s 100 years since WW1 began, and we began a century of separation and competition. Let’s make this next 100 years the century of connection and collaboration.
Our three biggest adventures will be: the US launch of my book, the Millionaire Master Plan, published by Hachette; the launch of our online learning platform, GeniusU; and the opening of our second Entrepreneur Resort in Hawaii. These all serve the same purpose, to support entrepreneurs in connecting and collaborating globally.
We have a strong team on our journey, with Shah Hamzah leading my crystal circle mentoring, Penny Wee managing our global partners, Suraj Naik growing our online platforms and assessments, and Simone Holt running our Entrepreneur Resorts.
Wendy Keller is leading the US launch of Millionaire Master Plan, John Abbott will be heading up our Mentors Circle and Sandra Morrell is joining us as General Manager of Entrepreneurs Institute.
We are translating all our main products and services, including Wealth Dynamics and the Genius Test, into different languages this year. If you would to join us as a country partner, affiliate or practitioner we would love to hear from you!
The big dates for this year are our Fast Forward Australia Tour in March, our Fast Forward Asia Tour in June, our Crystal Quest to France, England & Scotland in July, the launch of the Millionaire Master Plan in US in August and our Fast Forward Europe Tour in September. Hope to see you at one of our events in 2014…
What kind of story will 2014 be? A magic adventure story, with plenty of interesting characters, magic moments and surprises along the way. We’re living in a time of big challenges and even bigger opportunities. I hope our adventure links with yours and we get a chance to connect in person this year.
