Section 1: Start Here

Introduction video outlining;

* what it is all about

* why you should listen to this and then apply what you learn.

* what it is based upon (200+ research interviews with top achievers)

* why "smart" goals do NOT work.

* how I used the process to achieve BIG !

... and a 21 page booklet to support the course


Video 2 helps those who might not be 100% certain as to what their goals might be.

How to start taking action even if you do not know what to do.

Taking the pressure off yourself to achieve success every single time because nobody is perfect, and top achievers sometimes "fail their way" to success.

Listing your ideas, prioritising and removing the "blocks" to your success.


Purpose is not a goal........ NOT A GOAL !!!

It is not a "thing" to be achieved. Instead, consider a purpose as a reason "WHY" you must achieve a goal, a reason or cause that you rally behind that drives you to achieve your goal.

Hear how and why the super successful and highly effective top achievers know "why" they do what they do.

Do you have a reason why you "MUST" achiever your massive goal?

Hear about Lynn and her amazing and inspiring story of how a purpose overcomes huge adversity.

* find a purpose

* bust your excuses

... RESOURCES include a free bonus audio to help you understand how to create an unstoppable purpose and a resource sheet to help you "BUST" your excuses


Building a support network to help you achieve your goal is what top achievers do!

They will help you brainstorm (ideas creation) your opportunity and challenges, giving you ideas you might otherwise NEVER have considered.

Hear why most people have an agenda for you.

Learn about the power of a mastermind group.

* positive people with different skill sets to your own.

* meet on a regular basis

* what mastermind groups are based upon

* how to run your own group to super charge your success

* give and receive support AND accountability

.... Resources include an audio on how to set up and run your own mastermind group (worth £10 by itself) and a resource sheet on how to run a "mastermind" session for yourself


Once you have a list of the "to-do" tasks for your massive goal, you prioritise each task into an order of importance.

Draw a pyramid planner with twice the number of blocks in as you have tasks to do on your list (to allow space to write in things that at first you may not have thought of).

Draw, write or stick the most important or hardest, most challenging tasks in the bottom blocks and rows of the pyramid..... the foundation blocks.

Place the less important or less urgent tasks further up the pyramid.

Whilst your time, energy, motivation and resources are at their highest take action on the hardest tasks first.

.... Resources include

A) an example of an 11yr old girls pyramid that enabled her to start her own business.

B) an example of a charity fundraising pyramid that raised £288K sterling in just one event.

C) an example of a pyramid that organised a large trek in Peru for business leaders.

slide 1 - a blank pyramid template

slide 2 - examples of placing the important tasks (using an image to represent the task) in the bottom foundation rows and blocks.

slide 3 - example of crossing off your tasks as you complete the most important tasks first


This is the Real Gold Dust on the course giving the top tips that top achievers do to set and achieve goals.

Y - have a purpose.

X know - find out what you do not know or understand.

Look Into - get a mentor or coach at the highest level.

Plan - have a pyramid plan.

Comet - COMMIT to your goal .... tell everyone.

1/3 of 1% - 5 mins a day (or hour) being the best you can be on taking action on your goal will have huge results over time.

Fun - make the journey or process FUN!!!!!!

Mastermind chair - have a buddy group or "mastermind group"

.... and a superb free audio resource of an interview by the great Peter Thomson grilling me on the key principles of massive goals. (worth £20 by itself)


Planning time into your diary to allow action to be taken.

Work backwards from your goal.

Set an alarm to get up 1hr early to take action on the goal.



Sometimes we have to do tasks or work to achieve our massive goals that we do not actually enjoy.

Hear about how a best selling children's author overcame challenges to achieve his goals.

"eat the sprout"


"Never..... ever.... ever.... give in !" - Sir Winston Churchill.

Let your purpose inspire you to keep pushing through your down times and minor set backs or failures to achieve BIG !

Hear about student Terrance Spiers who achieved massive goals by overcoming adversity and mediocrity.

Hear about Andrew Cope who overcame procrastination to become a global best selling childrens author.

.... resource pictures of Terrance


let your purpose define your daily activity.

brainstorm your massive goals with a mastermind group.

prioritise the tasks into the pyramid.

every block should be achievable but the goal MASSIVE !

find out what you do not know - get a mentor "look into".

make it fun using the 1/3 of 1% rule.

TAKE ACTION !!!...... do the grunt work.

Graham Alexander - "where ever you go, there you are.... so get happy then go after your goal otherwise.... where ever you go.... THERE YOU ARE !"


WELL DONE !!!!!!!

you have now set yourself a MASSIVE GOAL!!!!

oh.... and if you haven't yet because you are scared... how about using the pyramid in your daily "to-do" lists to hugely improve your productivity and effectiveness.
