I Miss My Mom's Unconditional Love

I have just returned home from visiting my dad & catching up with my family and 2 lovely little grandaughters in N.S.W. where I grew up & did my schooling.

Memories Flooded Back
When I visited my dad who still lives in the old fibro 3 bedroom housing commission home , where my 4 sisters & younger brother all grew up . I was the eldest of the 6 children and had a bond with my mother that was like no other & both mom & I were born on the very same date, being the 30th january and it was also her 18th birthday.
Mom passed away 3 yrs ago now and I think I miss her more each day , as she was the foundation I built my life on , she taught me all the principles in life I live by today and am so proud of what I stand for.

Her name was Dawn May & she used to go without many things , including food at times just so the 6 of us never did without , our family never had much money yet both mom & dad loved us kids unconditionally. I could continue this story of my wonderful mother and her lessons of life and turn it into a book which I hope to eventually. Just for now I am going to share something my mom gave to me about 1 yr. before her death which I only found the other day while unpacking from storage some letters and books, perhaps this will help you understand my mom Dawn & why the memories came flooding back.

It Is All Up To You Son , To Make Your Dreams Come True
If you believe in your dreams, and work hard and long towards making them part of your reality, then more than likely you'll acheive whatever dreams you want to come true.
When you believe in something and focus your time and talents towards fulfilling that belief, then as time passes, you will be continually travelling in the right direction. If you have a positive attitude about your life, you have almost everything that you'll ever need.

Hope, faith and believing in good things will lead you on the right path to happiness and success. Challenges will come into your life, but the way that you perceive them will determine how positive or negative they will be in relationship to your life .
If you accept a certain amount of dissapointment, and strive to replace it with optimism and hope, then it will be a strengthening element in your life.

The simple keys to life are those, that you yourself must turn. They are the ones that tell you to expect happiness as well as change, and to make the most out of every day. Be ready to make your dreams come true, because son it is all up to you. -Dena Dilaconi is good...... and my mom made sure of that. I LOVE & MISS YOU MOM

Meet My Best Mate

To day is a special day for me and all of you , for today I want to dedicate this post to my best mate and wife of 36 yrs and introduce her to you all . I am sure you have heard the saying that behind every man there is a successfull woman , well her name is Sandra ( nanny ) as the grandkids & her friends call her.
I could write an encyclopedia about how wonderful she is and still not manage to explain how much of a difference she has made to peoples lives over the 36 years I have been with her. She gave life to our 4 children and now continues to fuss over them and they are all grown with their own families. Our 10 grandchildren absolutely adore Nanny and their smiles when they see her would often put a lump in my throat .
These days are the great days , as we now are the greatest of mates and I am not here to say we never had any challenges in the past, infact some of the drama's we were put through over the years would have destroyed others & I would rather not go there , other than to say Sandra was always there to support whoever needed it .
We have been married 36 yrs and we were remarried after 20yrs when we re-did our vowes with a complete wedding service , ceremony & another certificate. We often joke to friends that we have both been married twice , then tell them it was to the same person.
I mentioned in my last post that she is the person who keeps me from wandering off track, and I am more than gratefull for her guidance and support over the years as I was quite a wild young man up until I was tamed at the age of around 28 . For it was around that time that her never ending love for me showed me that I was one of the luckiest men alive and it was then that I began to truly fall deeply in love with my sweetheart . Sandra is not only my wife & best mate , she is my soul mate and life.
Thank you so much Sandra for just being Sandra ( Nanny ) & I love you dearly. you all know Sandra & why life is so good........... Come Join Us

My MINDSET Matters

What a difference your thoughts can make to your life was one of the first things I discovered as I progressed with my 21st century education . Now I look back over the last 6 months & realise where I have come amazes me especially knowing that all I did to start was chamge the way I thought about things .

When you hear that word MINDSET all it is saying is that your thoughts create what you constantly think about or focus on. I used to focus on what most people do , not having enough money, what if I lose my job , I can't afford it, no one ever helps me , the government is overtaxing us & thats what I kept getting , because it was all I kept thinking about and focusing on .

Now can you see why in excess of 90% of people are struggling in life , it is the way 90% of the population thinks , they are caught up in this doom & gloom perception of the world. All they have to do is re-focus and change their perceptions of what is and in a short time their lifes situation begins to change. I had heard all this preached to me on many occasions at seminars and from other successfull people and thought to myself that it was all bull s***t , then after bashing my head on brick walls in search of a better way for years I started to listen .
I still have a long way to go to acheive my lifes ambitions & goals , the things I have strived for for years are now in view and I know it is only time now for them to come to fruition.
All I did differently was to change my thinking work on my personal development , then focus on what I want to acheive in life & I have goal posters & vision boards all over my house now even in the dunny.
You need to decide now if what I am saying about the power of your MINDSET is really bull s**t or not , Trust me I am now a converted true believer. The things that have been set up and the opportunities that have come our way in the past 6 months are all in line with what my goals are , also one thing I have on my vision board directly above my computer has already come true .
Another thing that I now understand is the power of the universe and how it all works , & I am now more at peace with myself than I have ever been and where I saw life as a constant struggle in the past I now look forward to every day with the passion of helping others discover the same path.
Well guy's I will introduce you to my best mate & Wife of 36 yrs in my next post, so you can see who keeps me on the straight and narrow when I wander. Her name is Sandra and she is just Beautiful . Please leave me a comment and I will catch you all next post. is good.............. Come Join Me

Getting a 21st century education

One of the main things that Jamie consistently emphasised was mindset and at first I had trouble grasping , what he meant exactly by mindset. He goes on to explain that the main reason people aren't wealthy in todays economy is a direct connection to their mindset & the way they perceive things. Let me explain as best I can to what he means by all this, he says that that the 80/20 rule applies and that 80% is mindset while the other 20% is strategy.
Most people want to be financially free and what holds them back is they put their emphasis on th 20% of the wealth equation then neglect the 80% ,which is the mindset. In other words they are saying show me the money don't worry about this mindset stuff, I've heard it all before comon show me the money. You need to change your perception of the way things are , a good example to explain this is.........every decision you have made in the past has gotten you to where you are today !! OK so if you are not happy where you are financially or otherwise today , then it is obvious you need to make changes to the way you perceive things and make your decisions, it is that black & white.

The definition of INSANITY is doing the same thing over & over again the same old way, then expecting adifferent result.

I do speak with authority on this now as I was one who at first said , look just show me the money, also at 57 yrs old I also came to the realisation that if hard work made you rich then I should be a millionaire retired. As I was still working 60 hrs a week at 57yrs old something was horribly wrong.
Yes guy's are you grasping what mindset is about now, so the penny dropped for me I had to develop a different way of thinking to get a different result. Now this was going to involve personal development and an alteration to the way I perceived things. I hope I am not losing anyone with this mindset stuff as it is the key and in my next post I would like to take you a little further down this track and explain some of the results I am getting.

Take care leave a comment and we will see you back for the continuation. is good........ Come Join Me

Getting a 21st century education

Welcome back to how the FISHERMAN started his 21st century education , and thank you for your interest in a 57 yr old grandfather of 10. So this will show you all the power of Google ads when used & placed properly , by being placed next to where I was looking (real estate ) I managed to get inquisitive enough to click on one that said fill out your name & email and we will forward you our FREE!! DVD.
The keyword was FREE , as you know we all respond to something for free & not only that they said it was valued at $97 and I could also download an e-book for FREE as well, man what a bargain I had to get this even if I didn't need it & yes you know exactly what I am talking about don't you??........... Anyhow moving on , about a week later the video turned up and I had actually forgotten all about it and had to think for a while what it was & who had sent this.

This DVD was by Jamie McIntyre & the ebook was called What I Didn't Learn AT School But Wish I Had . That night I sat down to watch my new dvd to see what these guy's were spruking al about , you see I was very very sceptical as like alot of others I had tried various things over the years & was thinking this was just another one . Thank god I was still open minded enough to at least watch it and give Jamie McIntyre a fair hearing, I finished watching it and then replayed it imediately .

What I had just seen made so much sence I could not believe that a man could work all his life to try & get ahead, while all the time this kind of education was out there & not being offered to me. Like what Jamie says in his e-book What I Didn't Learn At School But Wish I Had it still rings in my head today and I feel now it is a crime that the Education system fails to incorporate this into schools.

Now friends lets leave it at that for today as with the next post I want to give an outline of some of the things Jamie points out and teaches , for these are the things that have changed my life and have me on one heck of a journey. Please leave me a comment as it helps me to know who else is still working & making some one else wealthy. is good........... come join me

Getting a 21st century education

This is where we pickup on the Fisherman going shopping for a computer to turn his life around. Well Harvey Norman it was & I had no Idea of what I needed , so when the guy in the shop said can I help you sir I came straight back with , yes I want a computer mate. He said fine we have a large range here what exactly were you wanting to do with it ? well mate I want to be able to surf the internet & find cashflow properties to make me wealthy and then I can retire. Hmmmm! this guy said and how much do you want to pay ? as little as possible, I replied & how much are they anyhow?

I won't drag this hillarious story out , as it went on for quite a while I just wanted to point out to you all my elabourite knowlege of computers. Any how I ended up parting with $1,180-00 (rip off) and taking my nice new Acer lap top computer home.

Thank god for my darling wifes knowlege of computers, I almost drove her mad trying to learn how to use this thing. She perservered god love her & managed after about 2 days to get me logging onto the net , which made me happy. now all I had to do was find real estate which would give me cashflow positive properties to rent, just like Robert Kiyosaki taught in his book. Boy was I in for a shock, after about 3 days & nights on the computer gatting blurry eyed and looking at 36,365,872,487,005 real estate listings. I finally decided this was not for me & Real Estate was not as easy as they made out.

Little did I know those 3 days on the computer, totally frustrated and a little agitated grrrrur!! was about to change the whole course of my life and for this I will be forever gratefull. Can you half guess what I did while I was surfing the net?? thats write I became inquisitive as to what all these little white ads were that kept saying become wealthy, retire young, get rich over night , financial freedom, you know all about Google ads & I never.

Well folks drop in on my next post and I want to share this further with you all, and meantime take care leave some comments & will see you soon. is good..... come join me
