It might not seem like it right now, but the day will come when you will be right where you always wanted to be.

You will be standing in that place that you dreamt about, cried about, prayed about, fought for and worked so hard for.

The tough days, the long nights, the days when you had nothing left to give, no one believed in you, the bank accounts were empty and you just wanted to give up will all be a distant memory.

The day will come!

Keep believing, keep working, keep creating, stay positive, stay focused and remember the greatest power exists within you!

It's time for some good news!
~
You're only ever lacking in three areas and guess what?
~
You can turn those 3 things around relatively easily and quickly!
~
It's easy to get caught up thinking, that you're miles behind, that you can't find your flow or mojo or that you're just lazy and unmotivated.
~
The good news is you are only a few decisions, actions and a few days away from finding your mojo again!
~
The first place to look when you lose your mojo is your energy levels.
~
What are you eating & drinking? Are you eating lean, green and light? If you aren't already, cut your intake down and focus on hydrating your body with water and eating fresh organic food...being light on your feet and energizing your body is step #1.
~
Also take a look at your exercise regime, are you exercising for energy or are you burning your body out at the gym?
Make sure you are getting good consistent rest every night and don't forget to spend some time alone in nature connecting with your inner most self!
~
The second place to look is your production levels or more so your lack of production!
~
Are you producing enough work or activity to get the results you want?
That's usually the real cause of most of your problems.... a lack of work, effort and momentum. In many cases a lack of production stems from a lack of energy - but hey, we're working on that right?
~
The third place to look when you're floundering is your confidence levels, but don't panic, we all lose our confidence from time to time.
~
When you lose your confidence and your sense of certainty everything else will be impacted especially your performance.
~
The best way to get your confidence back is to go back to basics for a few days and try and build some momentum and get your flow back that way.
~
You lose your confidence when you lose your self belief, so do the simple things you know you can do well... then you'll start to believe in your ability again!
~
It's time to get your mojo back and get back in the game and remember next time when you get stuck you only have to make adjustments in these three areas and most likely they will only be small tweaks and changes that need to be implemented.
~
Go get it!

The truth is you will be forced to work for someone else and continue to sell your time on this earth at a whole sale rate to the marketplace if you don't start working on your ideas in your spare time!
~
If you're not up early working on your ideas before you go to work every morning and working on your key projects after work and investing your time on your business plan on the weekends then maybe you are not serious about success and becoming financially free.
~
The secret to getting ahead is to get started and for most of you quitting your job right now is not something you can afford to do but what you can do right now is start working on your ideas and the projects that you are passionate about and that will move you towards your dreams and goals!
~
You will always be stuck in a job if you don't have a plan for your life and if you're not working on your own unique ideas outside of your 9 - 5 job....now you know so I don't want to hear any excuses about why you can't start!
~
Get to work and make the most of this weekend!

It will be alright.
~
Don't ask me how I know, but I do.
~
Whatever you may be going through right now, whatever challenges or setback you might be facing, Just know that it will be alright.
~
I know it will be alright, because it is always alright. Even in the worst of times and even in your darkest and saddest of hours, the sun will still rise and the stars will still appear at night.
~
I know it will be alright, because whatever you are going through is part of the natural flow of life. There will be days when it rains and you face the fiercest of storms and there will be days, when you feel the warmth of the sun and the gentle breeze of hope on your face.
~
I know it will be alright, because beyond all the pain, the helplessness and the frustration your true destiny and purpose eagerly awaits for your arrival.
~
The journey of life presents us with many challenges, not to hurt us or inflict pain, but rather to guide us towards what is true and right for our unique soul.
~
Trust. That's all I'm asking you to do, trust that you are being gently guided towards your greatest purpose and calling.
~
I know how hard it might seem right now, to believe in such a fairy tale. But one thing I've learnt about the universe and my existence is that I have always been guided by something greater than myself and if I just keep listening to my soul and the beat of my heart, then eventually and in time everything will work out in my favour.
~
It will be alright. That much I know, because everything you are going through right now is preparing you for your greatest moment and the responsibility that comes with great power.
~
Cry if you must, but just know deep within your heart that it will be alright.

We all make choices.
~
Some good, some bad... but we all make choices & decisions in our lives and the truth is the hardest part of making any choice is dealing with the consequences.
~
Often it's easy to deal with the consequences and the side effects of your choices when you make the right move but it can be devastating to say the least when your choices and actions prove to be the worst thing you could have done.
~
I know we've all been there before where we just wish we could have said something else or acted differently in the heat of moment or wish that we hadn't second guessed ourselves... but, that's just part of life and I guess that's how we learn those valuable life lessons, that stay with us forever.
~
But if you're going to keep moving forward in your life, you're going to have to learn to live with the actions, choices and decisions you make.
~
The thing that holds so many of us back is our failure to accept and live with the choices we have made, that often leads to feelings of guilt, regret and the inability to forgive ourselves... which is the toughest prison you can lock yourself away in.
~
So how do we live with the choices we make?
~
You have to learn to make conscious and calculated decisions for yourself and your life. That means you have to have the ability to consider things in advance and make choices which move you closer to your vision and life purpose.
~
You also have to learn to accept that life as we know it requires us to sacrifice, that means something must die in order for something else to live. Not being able to accept that sacrifice is a necessity for your growth is often the reason why we live in limbo for many years, hoping for an outcome which is ultimately impossible because we have failed to breathe life into any single thing and tried to keep many things alive, rather than being brave enough to let go of the things which no longer serve us or our greater purpose.
~
Finally, you have to have a vision and an ideal for your life that constantly guides you and helps you to determine what choices and sacrifices you are prepared to make in order for you to keep moving forward.
~
Forgive yourself and stay true to your vision.

Nothing in this world will move you and touch your soul and empower you more than being able to give!
~
There is no greater feeling than being able to give everything you have and know in your heart that you have more to give and more to share....that is the true meaning of abundance in your life!
~
I know that you may not feel that you have much to give but trust me you have so much to offer this world!
~
You have so much to give and the moment you decide to be generous and share all that you have is the moment that you stop living in scarcity & lack & fear and start living in absolute abundance and freedom.
~
It is often said that "the secret to living is giving" and truth be told it isn't just another throw away line or quote.
~
Simply put the more you give of yourself, the more energy you create and the more energy you create, the greater the flow of abundance you will be able to manifest in your own life and the lives of others.
~
Believe in yourself and believe in your own ability to give more and share more than you could ever imagine, because that is the key to unlocking everything your heart truly desires.

Are you guys using your Blueprint life planner every day?

Every morning when I wake up I invest around 20 minutes reviewing, updating and working on my Blueprint for success.

I also still use my daily plan worksheets and go through the process every day, as it helps me to be more focused and perform at my highest level.

When I created The Blueprint, I designed it so it was a tool that I could use every single day to stay focused, get things done and perform at my highest level.

I made sure The Blueprint was easy to read and more importantly easy to use and implement into my day to day life. All I really have to do is print out the work sheets I need as I go along!

The exact same blueprint that I use in my daily routine is the same blueprint all my coaching clients use before they can progress to the next level and it's the exact same tool that thousands of people all over the world have used to transform themselves and their lives.

To download The Blueprint and get started straight away visit Before5am.com or simply click on the link in my profile above 👉 @before5am it will help you immensely to get back your power and move towards your dreams!

Your friend,
Joe Duncan

If you want to break free and start living the life you truly want to live you are going to have to resolve your inner conflicts!

The reason you aren't getting ahead in life and aren't doing the things you wish you were doing is in a large part due to your own internal conflicts.

You can always tell you have inner conflicts when your CHOICES, DECISIONS and ACTIONS aren't aligned with your GOALS and who you want to be as a person and what you want to achieve. This usually leads to frustration, anger & pain.

Most people say they want a nice house, a big income or profits from a business and financial freedom but their choices and actions are never aligned with that goal. They are ultimately dealing with inner conflicts and until you resolve them, you will always be in no mans land!

The only way to resolve your inner conflicts is to DECIDE what it is you want the most. To know exactly what your greatest value and priority is in YOUR heart and mind and only you can make that decision for yourself and you can only come to that conclusion by spending time with yourself.

Once you DECIDE what it's going to be and how it's going to look and who you are going to be. Then you have to COMMIT everything to being the person who can achieve that outcome and be the person who makes CHOICES, DECISIONS and ACTIONS that are in line with your greatest value, priority and outcome!

Keep in mind that the TRUE POWER of a committed DECISION is to cut off the other possibilities and other things you want and it should focus you in on the one thing you want the most and value the most. Anything is possible for you, but not everything is possible for you!

Now is the time to resolve your inner conflicts. Decide what it is you want and commit to achieving it. Stop wasting your time, energy and money on things that you don't truly want and don't value.

That is the biggest thing holding you back right now and it is up to you to resolve your own inner conflicts.

No one can do it for you!

So you've already managed to climb out of bed, start your day and get to work and guess what... you're not feeling as energized, motivated and focused as you usually are!
~
Let's fix that up right now before you waste a whole day and your chance to get a few big things done.
~
1. Hydrate your body!
No, not with coffee or supplements or whatever you guys take now days...with good old fashioned water and maybe throw in a lemon if you're not a big water drinker!
~
Being dehydrated and not drinking enough water can often lead to you losing your edge and not feeling as energized and it's always good to make sure you are flushing your system with lots of water. So now you have an excuse for all those extended bath room breaks you take through out the day...
~
2. Get moving! I know I say it almost every day but motion creates emotion! So get moving... stand up and make your calls, get animated, go outside for a brisk walk around the block every hour and do whatever you can to change your state by moving around.
~
I always find going for quick walk, with my headphones in and a few of my favourite songs playing always helps me to feel a bit more energized and motivated.
~
3. Focus your mind. So much of our energy and performance level is dictated to us by our focus and what we allow our mind to focus on. So here is a quick exercise you can try at your desk or work station right now.
~
Grab a blank sheet of paper and a pen. Close your eyes for 2 minutes, clear your mind and think about nothing.... be still for that moment in time. When you open your eyes again I just want you to stare at that blank sheet for a minute, that blank sheet of paper represents a fresh start and a blank canvas!
~
Now, I want you to write down the 3 things you are absolutely going accomplish today - not a list of 27 things or your to do list. Just 3 simple things you are going to do next.
~
That's it! Those 3 things will give you clarity and as they say "clarity is power" and it's absolutely true when it comes to feeling more energized. Get those 3 things done and you'll build some momentum and want to keep pushing on!
~
I hope that helps you to feel a bit more energized during your day!

When your alarm goes off in the morning, you've got to jump out of bed and get excited about tackling the hard things and doing the things you don't really want to do...

You've got to see just how far you can push yourself every single day and that starts by shifting your mindset and focus and making it fun & enjoyable in your own mind to do the hard things and to challenge yourself.

You've spent enough time in your life looking for the easy way out, trying to do less than your best and avoiding the hard things which will ultimately make you better and allow you to become more.

You can't expect to grow, become stronger and be better when all your focus is on trying to find easy street.

You simply won't grow, improve or make any real progress by doing less than you can and trying to find the easy way out all the time.

You've got to train your mind to believe that doing the hard things, doing the mundane things and running exceptional routines and habits are fun and enjoyable.

The truth is it should be fun because any time you push yourself, display your power through self control and discipline and do the hard things you move a little closer to becoming the best version of yourself.

Make it your mission to always do more than you can and not avoid the hard things that you have to do.

The days of pulling up the covers when your alarm clock goes off are over, get up and get excited about doing the tough stuff and make it fun and enjoyable to push yourself and challenge yourself every day!

I thought I would put together a quick checklist for you guys, to help you with building your personal brand.
~
If you're not sure what I'm talking about check out my last post about investing 50% of your time building your personal brand.
~
I want you all to get into the habit of putting yourself out there and creating a name for yourself in whatever industry or sector you are in or would like to be in.
~
Grab your calendar and note pad and let's get to work with mapping out the simple things you can do each month to build your brand.
~
Contact 10 new people via email, direct message, letter or by picking up that thing you're holding now and making a phone call. Get comfortable with introducing yourself and get used to reaching out and finding a way to connect with people in you're industry or people who have a similar passion or vision.
~
Set up 8 meetings for the month ahead. That's only 2 a week. It can be a lunch meeting or a simple 20 minute coffee just to catch up and stay connected. It can be old colleagues, competitors, a person you admire or someone new to your contact list.
~
Get online and create 3 posts every day that cover your expertise, life experience or your unique ideas that you want to share with the world. Hopefully you guys are by now only using social media to make connections, share your ideas and build your brand. That's all it should be used for...
~
Finally, have a look at the month ahead and see what trade shows, expo's or events you could attend to build your brand and make new connections. It might be a charity golf day or an opportunity to help out in your local community. You want to try and attend 1 event every week at the very least.
~
Well, that's only 4 things Joe?
It's true maths was never my strong suit but my final point is more like a daily exercise.
~
You always want to be interested in other people but it's just as important to become an interesting person, who knows a few cool things... so every day, I want you to invest 20 minutes learning something new that you can share with others about your industry or sector.
~
That's it guys, hopefully that gives you the confidence to take action and start building your brand.

I know you guys have heard me say it so many times before, but I need you guys to really get it today.
~
I know you're working hard, I know you're doing the best that you can do and you're doing your job.
~
But, most of you are only doing part of your job. You're rocking up to work and meeting your targets and performance indicators, but are you building your personal brand and increasing your exposure so you become a dominant and irreplaceable force in your industry or sector?
~
Your job isn't simply to perform your task and do the things that bring in the money each week. That's 50% of your job, that's what you are paid to do.
~
I can assure you most of you are neglecting the other 50% and that's why you will always be at the mercy of someone else's decisions or the market or outside factors.
~
One of the big reasons I wake up @before5am is because by midday, I want to have all my work complete and done for the day, so I am free to network, meet people, grow my brand and position myself for the next opportunity.
~
You need to put yourself out there, it doesn't matter the industry or sector you are in or want to be in... you've got to get known.
~
You've got to use every resource to your advantage, create a blog, write and distribute articles, get on social media and take meetings at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
~
From now on, I want each and every one of you to consider building your personal brand a necessity that is part of your day to day lifestyle.
~
Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing people who are passionate about their business or career who simply can't get ahead or breakthrough because they haven't done the work to build their personal brand over the years.
~
If no one knows who you are and what you stand for and the value you can deliver to the lives of others then you're doing something seriously wrong.
~
So get to work. 50% of your time should be invested in growing your brand and getting known, you are an amazing talent with great ideas and you can absolutely change the world... but if no one has ever heard of you then you won't even be able to change your own life.
~
Don't be shy, be brave enough to be bold and put yourself out there.
