Motivating People From Where They Are – FPUK.co – Andrew Chenery

depressed pic

Hi Friend,  How is your new week shaping up? I am so proud of you for being a person who wants more out of their life and is working to achieve your goals and better yourself.

You might be doing great but when you look around, are you starting to see others give up? They set this goal and now they’re already going back to old habits?

Clients have asked me before, “Andrew how do I motivate others to succeed, as well?” It can be frustrating to see those you are close to start things and then give up! I’ve run into this with my kids a lot, my wife and even in myself.

To answer your question, let me share a story. You may or may not know this, but I went through a bad period of being stressed, depressed and entertaining dark thoughts. It lasted for 9 solid months before finally getting so sick and tired of being sick and tired, I decided to do something about it.

If you had tried to motivate me anytime during those months, I wouldn’t have listened. Mainly because I was busy having a pity party and enjoyed blaming everyone else. I just wasn’t ready.

A lot of people say they want success, say they want to lose weight, make more money, get a better job. But they really don’t! And that is okay. We are all at different points in our journey.

You can try to push people out of their ruts, but they might be having fun in there. I wasn’t ready to listen until month 10 of being in that place. Who knows how long it will take others to be ready to listen or actually pull themselves out of the hole!

So what are you supposed to do in this situation?

The only thing you can do… love people where they happen to be in their life. Support them right where they are, realizing they might be at a different place than you in their life journey. When you are there for them, you will learn what motivates them and can just encourage that particular hot-button area!

It puts stress on your relationships when you to try to force others to succeed. And if you push, you will push them away. It shows you don’t support them in their struggles. It shows them your agenda is more important than theirs.

Are you ready to encourage and love others where they are right now?  Leave me your comments and don’t forget to Like and Share this message. If you’re looking for more tips to decrease stress, better your relationships and uncover new strategies for success, join us by subscribing to this blog.

Thats it for today – I hope you have an amazing day

Breaking Into Financial Freedom

2015/01/img_0812.jpg
Hey Friend,
Are you hoping to hit the jackpot this year? Be it a promotion, increase in sales or striking gold, maybe you hope this is your lucky year for a huge financial breakthrough!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the reality is, in 2015 you will fall into one of these three categories. Take a minute to look over them and decide which one best describes your financial plan this year.

1. You will stay exactly where you are, which if you are like the majority of people, is living payday-to-payday and stressed about the crushing weight of your debt.

2. You will get worse. Maybe something will happen this year and you’ll lose some income, or you will just continue to go further and further into debt.

3. You will start (or will get closer to) becoming financially independent. You will say enough is enough. You will STOP going into debt, and take a step in the opposite direction!

If your financial plan was to get lucky this year, guess what… that is not a plan! Think about the bigger picture for just a minute. You may be someone who buys lottery tickets each week, or you could be someone who has never bought a single ticket in your entire life. Either way, don’t count yourself out just yet…

Because this is something that goes much deeper than a simple lottery ticket or this idea that you will get “lucky.” There is a mindset behind that lottery ticket that leads to financial failure. Ancient wisdom says he who chases fantasies, has poverty waiting for him.

What is a fantasy, and how does it lead to poverty? Well, the belief you will somehow get lucky and have all of your problems solved, is a total fantasy. The belief you will get something for nothing is a fantasy. It is a fantasy to think you can go to work and do just enough to not get fired, and then expect to get promoted or get a huge bonus. It’s a fantasy to think you can keep eating out 4 times a week, going shopping, and stopping at Starbucks every morning and still expect to become debt-free.

This is what we call the “lottery mentality,” and it will never lead to long-term success. If you pursue this mentality, you will always end up disappointed.
Many years ago, someone told me, “If you want to be successful, then find out what everyone else is doing and do the opposite.” So let’s look at the other side of this “lucky” coin…

It’s safe to say most people are living under this lottery mentality in one way or another. That is, they hope to get something for nothing. But, if want to get something out, you have to put something in.

If you want to annihilate your debt, should you sit and pray and sit and pray and watch and hope and wait for it to suddenly disappear? Heck no! That’s stupid! If you want to annihilate your debt and still have money to do what you want, you have to start with the basic principles of handling money! That’s not chasing a fantasy… that’s pursuing skills and producing results! The bottom line is, if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll have what you’ve always had. Do not put your hope in a fantasy, because it will never lead to success. Choose today to get equipped and to take action in the direction of your goals.
I hope this motivated you to get out from under that giant weight of debt and financial pressure pushing you down and stressing you out! Leave me your comments and Like and Share this message with your friends and family.
This is your life and you are totally in control of it – make it count.

For now have an awesome day.

Andrew 🙂

Understanding Depression – FPUK.co

depressed pic

Have you ever been plagued by depression? Yes, “plagued,” because it affects nearly 1 in 4 adults in the UK alone! Not to mention the number of adolescents who must deal with depression daily.

What does depression look like for you? You can’t concentrate at work, you’re exhausted, feeling hopeless, empty or alone? A lot of people suffer from depression, but it is rarely acknowledged or treated.

You can numb it out with medications without ever dealing with the actual root of it. Unfortunately, unless you get down to real cause, your problem will not just go away!

I’ve spoken with several people who had dealt with depression for decades. And even after 10-20 years worth of antidepressants it didn’t solve their problems!

One woman in particular, Barbara, mentioned that her mother called her lazy when she was growing up! She didn’t even know she was coping with depression until many years later.

If you’re a parent, this is important! Depression can seem like laziness or some sort of choice, but it could really be your children dealing with a much larger problem.

The only thing that is going to solve your depression or your child’s, is going back to the root of the issue and throwing out that nasty rubbish. For some people, it’s their parents’ divorce, a bad relationship break-up, abuse, or some type of unforgiveness that has sewn a rotting, stinking seed of depression in your life.

And do you know how that seed gets fed? This is important for those of you who are not struggling with depression, but could be close to that full-out battle. You feed that seed by focusing on it. How you think, determines what you speak, and what you speak then determines how you live (or don’t live). What you feed will flourish and what you neglect will die.

If you’ve been speaking death over your life, your dreams, your actions or even over your kids – that needs to stop!

Are you ready to move past the hopelessness? Let me know in the comments and be sure to share today’s message with your friend’s and family by hitting Like and Share.

Thats its for now – have an amazing blessed day whatever you do.
You have one life – make it count.

Network Marketing Explained – FPUK.co

20131206-110527.jpg

Hi Friends

What is Network Marketing?

Network marketing is something that allows you to create a lifestyle, that will bring you more income than the highest paid professional you know.
Its something that allows you to do what you want, when you want, in the fashion that you want to do it in.
That sounds great but what are we doing?
Basically when a company starts up, they need to get the word out about their product or service, so typically they have a certain percentage of their advertising budget thats set aside for billboards, radio, TV, newspapers, magazines, national sports events etc. What we are doing is simply taking that advertising money and instead of doing all those things or stuff that we don’t believe works, they pay it to us, to people that are out in the field, that are using those products or services that can give a recommendation to our friends or family, and do you know what ?…. they pay us very very well, in fact let me tell you about a few of my friends that have been paid very very well to do exactly that.
My friend Karol used to be a Pizza delivery driver, he came from another country, to find his dream, he didn’t know a lot of english, didn’t have a lot of connections, but because of this industry he was able to now have that lifestyle – to do what he wanted to do, now hes able to send money back home to his family, and actually help and he’s got an amazing – amazing lifestyle because of it.
Or Anneeta, she moved here with her family and after 3 years her husband died while abroad in a car crash and she was left with 3 young children and no income, they had no life insurance and she got nothing, but after starting in network marketing, part time to start with she soon started earning a small income to afford food and rent and then she was able to earn enough to have the children looked after allowing her a few more hours doing her business, and now she has a large team, all making serious money, and she is now making more money than her husband used to make in his full time job, and she is able to reduce how many hours she does to spend valuable time with her children – raising them up in a lifestyle she and her husband had dreamed about when they moved to the UK.
So heres my question to you?
I don’t know why you’re reading this, I don’t know if your a college student, maybe your up to your eye balls in debt, and you don’t know how to pay that back, and you really don’t know if your going to have a job for much longer, I don’t know if you’re looking at retiring, and you don’t know if thats ever going to happen, or I don’t know if your friend told you about network marketing, but whatever the case may be, this industry is an amazing industry, we have a system that allows you to do certain steps that will produce predictable results, and what we’ve seen is that through that system there’s been thousands & thousands of people that have been able to walk through it and accomplish their dreams and goals.
So heres what I know, I know that if you have a dream in your heart, and you’re willing to do something about it, if you believe that there’s maybe more to something than the daily grind of doing forty hours a week, for forty years of your life, to end up on forty percent of what didn’t look good to start with, then I say lets partner up, let me take you by the hand, and lets do this together, it happened to me and can happen to you.
Whatever your channel to achieve this, you need to make sure that it produces residual income, income that you get paid forever for doing something once, no return visits needed, and this business can give you just that.
If you’d like to talk more about this opportunity, to work along side your full time job part time, earning additional spare money or you need to start now full time in your spare time then call me today on 01394 549364 or click here to watch the company video giving more info and what its all about.
Thats its for now – have an amazing blessed day whatever you do.
You have one life – make it count.

Do you have a Lottery Mentality? FPUK.co

20140612-134223-49343037.jpg
Hi friends,

When we were laying on the beach recently in Egypt after snorkelling off the coral drop off, I had an overwhelming sense of thankfulness to the people who got us started in this business, who showed us the opportunity, who believed in us and who were there when we had questions that needed answering, who kicked us back into action when we went quiet. Now we are so thankful for that start.
Knowing that if we work hard for 5-7 years we can then enjoy the fruit of our labour and have no pension worries or our children’s future.

But what is your plan to top up your pension shortfall, what is your plan B if you like, will the £135 a week which I’m told is the current state pension, be enough for you to enjoy your pensionable, enjoyable old age? To do and have the things you’ve dreamed of doing and having when you retire?

It’s a known statistic that 55-60% of people believe the lottery will be their plan B for when they need it!
We always hear the headlines of the humble couple who have won the lottery, but that’s only 1-2 people. It was recently calculated that if you gave each lottery Loser – NOT Winner just 30 seconds on TV it would take 9 years to get through all the losers from just 1 lottery draw – scary fact.

So my question is what would you like to start doing today to change your destiny? If you’d like to take a look at what we do – we’d be happy to show you how simple this business is, anyone can do it and it works – it’s not selling it just showing.

If you’d like more info please email us at FinancialPeaceUK@gmail.com or call us on 01394549364 / 07930464461

Otherwise have an amazing day and stay blessed 🙂

How to Raise Your Children – Andrew Chenery

hands
Hi Friends,

What do you think about influence? Maybe you don’t think you have any in your position or in your life. But the truth is, every decision you make has a huge effect on the people around you… especially your children. Every time you degrade yourself in the mirror, gossip about your boss or talk about what foods you like, you are influencing their future.

Whether you are making a conscious effort or not to set the best possible example for your children, they are always watching you. And they WILL follow your example.

Your children see more than you realise and they catch on so quickly. Your habits will soon become their habits. The way you react in circumstances shows them how to react. How you eat will show them how to eat. That’s pretty powerful stuff!

Consider the example you are setting for your children in these areas of your life:

Relationships
Think about how you react when you are angry or upset. Are you putting forth the example of someone who is in control of their own spirit? If you have a “10” reaction to a “2” offense, your child is watching that and mentally filing it for future reference! How do they view marriage when they see your interactions with your spouse? You are setting the ultimate example for all their present and future relationships and marriage.

Work Ethic 
You also shape their work ethic. Are you constantly complaining about your job and boss at the dinner table? Do you complain about Mondays and live for the weekend? You have to treat your job like the privilege it is! Having a job in todays climate is a blessing. Treat it like one, instead of making your child fear the day they have to start working. Unless, of course, you want them to sleep in your home well into their 30s.

Body Image
Do you spend too much time front of the mirror making negative comments about your body? Most women pass their body issues onto their daughters. If you obsess over food, they will as well.

And for the men – what example are you setting? Do you push yourself at the gym or just plop in front of the TV and watch your gut grow? These habits have an equally major effect on your son.

Money
One of the harshest habits to impact your child’s future would be your spending habits. Simple things like buying more food shopping when there are tons of food already in the house, eating out frequently or complaining about having “nothing to eat” while staring at a fridge full of leftovers, are all things they will pick up on!

The actions you see in your children today are more than likely things you taught them when they were young. But it isn’t too late to sit down with your children, apologize for the example you have set and start moving forward. It’s okay to be honest with your children about your finances, relationships or whatever else is going on in your life.

We all have poor habits, make poor choices on occasion and unintentionally pass on things we never would have imagined to our children. In your life have you ever stopped and realised, “Whoops, I’m being my Dad” after uttering a similar phrase he always used?

Look, parenting doesn’t come with an instruction manual. A lot of things you pick up as you go, but you also don’t have to go blindly.

Tell me about some “Whoops” moments you’ve had while raising your children. I KNOW you have them!

Thats it for today, move toward the positive and raise a generation to be proud of.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Activate that circle of influence today and please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email. Please retweet this.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

Build Your Circle Of Friends – FPUK.co

ripple fpuk.co

Hi Friends,
Back from honeymoon now – Sorry its been a while since I last posted, but 1 month ago yesterday we got married and then took time out in Egypt to relax and although I took my trusted iPad planning to continue my blogging whilst there, wisdom and relaxation took over.
But while we were there we met and built our circle of friends, talking about life around the pool or while on the beach we met so many people, some happy as they escaped reality and their stress back home and some like us that enjoy life and all it gives us. But today I want to continue talking about friends and the ripple effect it causes building true friendships.

What would you say if I told you you are wasting one of your biggest assets? You’d probably want to know what it was! You see, every human has a circle of influence. In fact, the average person knows 2,000 people by the time they are 20 years old.

That means every day you have the power to influence thousands of people just by stating an opinion, sharing life experiences and recommending other businesses.

You can choose to ignore your circle of influence, like the majority of people do. Or you can utilise this resource to build your business, find a job, look for a date or expose your product or service.

I imagine you’re reminded of a few slimy “friends” you once had on Facebook who wouldn’t stop pushing their business in your face until you were so exhausted you finally “unfriended” them. But that isn’t what I mean. You can utilise your influence without resorting to shameless self-promotion.

What I am talking about is creating a mutually-beneficial relationship. How many times have you heard an acquaintance, friend or family member express a need for something? They’re looking for a hair stylist, they just put their house on the market… etc.

What you do is become a connector. Help your friends fill their needs! Know someone who is recruiting and another person that is looking for a job? Refer your friend.

I’m a firm believer that what you hand out, you will get back. So when you give referrals, who do you think is the first name they will think of when referring within their circle of influence? Becoming a resource for your friends not only increases your value, but it’s essentially setting up free advertising for yourself. Not only that, but you are helping the people in your life and strengthening those relationships.

Marketers are always trying to get to your list. Think of it this way – Abercrombie isn’t about getting YOU to buy their clothes. They are about getting you to advertise for them. That’s why they put their label on the outside. You are advertising their clothes to your circle of influence. So if these marketers find your list so valuable, why don’t YOU use your own list???

Building a list and using the resources that are right in front of you will open so many doors and opportunities: jobs, loyal clients, better relationships and more! You should be consistently building and adding to your list of resources.

Start asking “Who do I know?” You’d be surprised by the number of people you actually know and the possible resources you are wasting.

Thats it for today, build your list, talk to 5 more people and ask for a business card or phone number, and of course give your out too.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Activate that circle of influence today and please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email. Please retweet this.

This is your life – make it count.

Forgiving Increases Relationships – FPUK.co

Forgive

Hi Friends,

As the countdown to our wedding day ticks by (3 days 7 hours 53 minutes ) theres different thoughts coming to me in increasing and building stronger relationships, and as requested, after our honeymoon I’ll be doing a series on relationships.

Recently I spent some time talking about forgiveness being linked to happiness, but this topic is so important and so vital to your success I wanted to expand on it a little bit more.

When you harbour unforgiveness it actually does MORE than just keep you stuck. It’s the root of low self-esteem, criticism, distrust, sleepless nights, anxiety and having a short fuse. It is also the root of all addictions! And those addictions can take many forms: working too much, shopping, food, porn, TV, drugs and alcohol.

When you hold on to bitterness you leave yourself open to all these other horrible distractions. Unforgiveness is the ultimate gateway drug! It’s the root of every evil that keeps us from moving forward in a healthy, happy, rewarding and clean lifestyle.

The way I see it, your past is the baggage you just carry around and unforgiveness is just plain old rubbish. It smells… it stinks and even worse, everyone else you meet gets a big whiff of it when you walk by. When you’re burdened, you reek.

Whether you realize it or not, your rubbish has control over your life. It affects your relationships, your job performance and your physical health!

Forgiveness is a choice – maybe not an easy one, but it is still 100% your choice! It isn’t about letting others off the hook, but it does require you to accept the fact you have no control over the situation.

You can’t control other people, you can only control your response to them and their actions. In other words, if you’re waiting around for other people to apologize, don’t bother. Those who have wronged you might never admit their fault or ask for your forgiveness. It isn’t about what they deserve, it’s about choosing to not let them have a hold on you.

Don’t let their mistakes have that control over your life or your happiness! And I’ve heard it before, “Andrew, it isn’t that easy.” You’re right, it isn’t that easy. For most people it’s a process. Move away from your role as a victim and release the control and power others have on your life.

What is your choice today? Are you going to hang on to the bitterness and keep carrying your rubbish around with you? Or are finally going to take your rubbish out to the driveway for the dustmen?

If you’re interested in spring cleaning, let the rubbish in your life be the first thing you get rid of in this new spring season. Leave me your comments on today’s message and take that 5 extra seconds to Like and Share it. You never know who in your circle of influence really needs to hear this!

If you’d like to know more about how to perform forgiveness drop me a line at the contact details below and I’d love to have a chat about how the process works.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email.

Have Money Work Harder Than You – FPUK.co

sales

Hi Friends,

I was talking to a new friend yesterday who is struggling to make ends meet but wants and needs to make a difference to their lives, and she truly believed that by having more jobs and working all the hours that come it would make a difference. But their health was deteriorating to a point that they had to take sick days from each of the jobs on a regular basis, I explained that working smarter rather than harder was the real answer, having money work for her rather than working harder for money.

I’m about to share a huge secret with you today. Did you realise most people honestly believe that the means to real financial independence is through a higher salary or working every hour that comes? How about you?

Are you working for someone else in a 9 to 5 Rat-Race, just trying to continue up the corporate ladder to a point where you can finally “get ahead” financially? Or, are you chasing the great “Dream” of starting your own business on the side maybe to follow your passion, or as a way to generate extra income or just to be able to jump off that 9 to 5 Rat-Race?

Trust me, working full-time and starting your own business is a recipe for disaster as you work ’round the clock and only see slow, tiny steps forward on the path to increase your wealth!

Well, here’s the secret… very few millionaires make their money from a salary! And you can bet those CEOs at the top of the corporate food chain make tremendous sacrifices of their time and in their relationships to earn that 7-figure salary.

So, you’ve got to be asking yourself, “Where are all these millionaires getting this money if not from big-name jobs and salaries?” This is about so much more than making money, this is about creating genuine wealth. If we both stopped working today, we would still have a steady money flow for years to come. Why? Because we have multiple streams of residual income!

Now, you might think that investing is too risky. And it’s never too soon or too late to start.

In our house, we aren’t in the business of giving our children a free ride or life handed to them on a silver platter. They have to know the power of earning their own money and what it can do for them.

So, Friends you’ve got to ask yourself, “If a 11-17 year-olds can find the means to start investing, then what’s holding me back?” Or you could say, “Hey, I wonder how they do that?” If they could do it, then you most certainly can! Look into it yourself! You might learn a few things — starting right here:

Ask yourself why you want to start a business.

Is it to be your own boss?

Create a legacy for your children?

Attain financial independence?

Creating time freedom?

Maybe it’s all of the above. But identifying your specific motives helps to establish a true vision for your goal. And there is no right or wrong answer! It really is okay to just be in it for the money!
Start investing NOW. If you ever want your bottom line to increase, you’ve got to start investing now. And I do mean NOW — you can’t wait for that “when you have the money” or “when the economy gets better” excuses! Set aside money each payday, whether it is £5, £50, £500 or more… just do it and earmark it strictly for investments. It will make the “big risk” seem a lot less scary. Initially build yourself your emergency fund that isn’t touched unless it for an emergency and I mean emergency, and if you need to dip into for the emergency then replace that money as soon as is possible then continue putting money into savings again not tone touched. Then when you make money from those initial small investments, turn that money around for more and new investments.
Continue to put money in savings. Remember wealth isn’t just about how much you earn, it is often about how much you KEEP. Realize that most savings accounts are just money saved to use later.
Increasing your bottom line is simple, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It requires an investment from you! That investment could be your time, your training or your skill sets.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email. Please retweet this.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

How To Find True Happiness – FPUK.co

Happiness Green Road Sign with Dramatic Clouds and Sky.

Hi Friends,

This time next week our wedding weekend will have passed and I will be a married man, in fact according to an app on my iPhone in 5 days 8 hours and 38 minutes, but do you know since my fiancee said “Yes” I have had peace and joy in my heart every single day. But thats added a depth of happiness on top of my daily peace I experience each and every day.

It pleases me that each day of my life, I experience feelings of happiness. I focus on finding joy at some time of the day. My reality is wonderful because I experience so many things that bring me happiness.

In the morning, I wake up with feelings of refreshment and wonder. I think about what my day might bring. Perhaps I can see an old friend today. Maybe this is the day that the love of my life surprises me with something special. As the sun rises, my joy is just beginning.

Most days when I head to visit a client I will take the coast road to see the ocean, the continuous waves and movement of the sea for me is a relaxing and calming experience, what is yours?

Although some things that make me happy are fleeting, I know I have many reasons to be happy. I make an effort to keep those reasons in my mind each day.

The love of my partner, the pleasure of watching my children grow, the fascination of my work, and the unknown elements to come in life all make me feel happy.

My enjoyment of the day keeps my spirits high. I smile to myself because I feel gratitude for my life and this day. The joy I feel at this moment reminds me of all the love I have in my life.

Today, I recognize the many reasons that enable me to experience daily happiness. Every day brings another chance to feel joy and remind myself of the love and happiness in my life. And I am thankful.

Life leaves bitter and sweet tastes in the mouth. It’s easy to find yourself on the lawn of negativity, drinking from a glass half empty on grass that definitely isn’t as green as your neighbours’. Then, in the space of a day or so, everything can seem like sunshine and lollipops again.

Your feelings may well be in constant flux, but God wants to give us a steady, deeper joy, that’s not based on surface level happiness or sadness. Thinking negatively about ourselves or our situation doesn’t improve things, even if we think that we’re just being ‘realistic’. It’s not delusional to focus on being positive. Words have power in our lives and so does our thought life. Don’t feed your heart with the wrong stuff.

Do you imagine God looking down on us negatively? Rick Warren wrote this, ‘God is love. He didn’t need us. But he wanted us. And that is the most amazing thing.’ God has bound Himself to you – that’s not something that changes from day to day, even if we feel far from Him. Whatever negative spin you can put on your lot in life, God says He intends ‘to prosper you and not to harm you… to give you hope and a future.’ (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV) Live in this deeper joy.

What now?

Self-Reflection Questions:

What are some sources of my happiness?
Do I allow myself to feel daily joy?
How can I increase my awareness of what makes me happy, thereby increasing my feelings of happiness?

Living with an attitude of gratitude helps start this process for many people. I want you to “Thank every single person who has ever told you that you can’t because they are just another reason why you will” succeed in whatever you put your efforts into achieving.

I encourage you today to get these principles working in your favour. Don’t leave your success to chance — follow the laws and create your dream life!

Please take a minute to pass this message along to your friends, family and colleagues today. You never know who desperately needs this guidance and direction for their lives, so share this on your social media sites, print it out and pass it around or simply forward this email.

This is your life – make it count.

Stay Blessed

Andrew 🙂
