All our goals and dreams are needing specialized knowledge to achieve them.

There are two couples who are friends, Jane and Bill and Anna and Dean. Both have a young family, Bill and Dean both work nights and shift work. They are home after the kids are in bed, often eating dinner before leaving for work. Both families want to have the fathers at home at night and spending more time with the kids. Reading the kids stories, feeding, eating dinner as a family and putting the kids to bed.

Bill has been working towards this goal by doing network marketing for many years, he has also been at the gym and taking care of his own health first thing in the morning. Even though he gets home after 9 at night he gets up early and works on building the business to allow him to travel the world with the family, spend more time with the family and give them a better life. Every day Bill is dreaming of a better life for Jane, his step daughter, his son and his family. Dreaming of spending more time with the family and what life can be.

He talks with mentors how to change his life, does personal development and builds the friendships he can with other parents. Whist Dean sleeps in, he sits around or plays golf with his mates daily and does little about changing his situation.

Years later Bill sees Dean after his family has just returned from a holiday, Dean calls him lucky, Bill says that Dean can do the same to Dean its too much. We need the knowledge of those before us, we can turn to mentors, friends and the internet for support on that area and building that dream that we truly want to achieve as a person.

Thank You to my amazing friends and family Linda and Michael Dlouhy and Ken Klemm, for Your ongoing guidance, love, support and encouragement, teaching all of us to live the life of our dreams, thank You also to my amazing wife Jenny for helping me to become a better person and to be that awesome amazing father and husband.

A huge hug to all, I appreciate You all,
