There is a seven hour wait for my next flight, the
one that will bring me home.
I’m in a quiet corner of Zurich airport, the day
has gradually eased into evening, I have found a
comfortable work space and it is surprisingly
quiet and peaceful.
It’s been an astounding few days away, full of
learning, networking and some really big insights.
I have so many people, plans, ideas and stories
going through my head. It’s very exciting.
I wonder about what to do next, and what to write
about now! I’m anxious to get home and get
I have just returned from Brendan Buchard’s
‘Expert’s Academy’. Aside from the great
training, high-energy atmosphere and interesting
guest speakers, it was wonderful to interact with
such a large group of like-minded, determined,
creative and ambitious people.
Everyone I met was interesting, motivated and
energetic about their particular field, and each
person was more different than the next!
One of the guest speakers was Brian Tracey, it was
a real treat to see this man live, a real
inspiration. I wrote down a ton of notes and some
things that he said really resonated with me.
But one thing that really stuck in my mind was
when he said ‘you become what you think about most
of the time’.
You become what you think about most of the
What are you thinking about most of the time?
What do you think about first when you wake up in
What do you think about as you are travelling to
What’s in your mind at the end of the day?
I have always believed that if you can dream it,
you can do it.
But the idea that consistent thought will manifest
itself in your reality is something that sounds so
true and yet has never quite occurred to me in
this way before.
When I think about it there are so many examples.
I have been blessed to meet and work with many
people who have made a decision and kept a goal in
mind until it was in their consistent thoughts.
The result? They became what they had dreamed of.
A few hours ago as I walked through Zurich airport
I met a couple who had been at the Experts
Academy. I don’t even know their names but they
told me their beautiful story of transformation.
The young man had been working in a corporate
environment; he described it as frenetic, stressed
and out of control, it was all he thought about
and it was paying a severe toll in his life. He
was following his father’s footsteps. Then seven
years ago his father died of a heart attack.
He decided that he didn’t want to live his life
this way anymore and began to think about what he
could do. He thought about the field of exercise
and nutrition as it had been an interest of his.
And that consistent thought was what he became.
He vastly improved his physique and his health,
has made a business and lifestyle out of it and it
has transformed his life and that of his family.
So I ask you again, what are you thinking about
most of the time?
What are the stories you are telling yourself to
keep you in this way of thinking? Are they serving
I’d love to hear about a thought that would help
you transform your life (leave a comment below!)
And as you start to think it ‘about most of the
time’, know that you will become it!
