Hi, we’re Greg and Fiona Scott, The Laptop Lifestyle Experts, authors of Living a Laptop Lifestyle, and creators of Live a Laptop Lifestyle digital training platform.

Having harnessed the internet to replace our comfortable corporate salaries over the last 5 years, we’ve now chosen to help and inspire people like us, to create their own lifestyle of design by leveraging the internet.

In the past 10 months alone, we’ve mentored and motivated over a thousand people of all ages, from all corners of the globe, build and scale up their own online businesses in order to live life on their terms.

Our personal mission is to re-educate 1,000 laptop lifestylers (our words) to earn an online income, enabling them to answer to nobody, holiday when they want, work how long they want, and be present with their family. Is that what you want?

We’ve re-educated a range of people, from those who generate their first $1 online, through to people who earn tens of thousands of dollars online each month. In short, we help people to unleash their inner entrepreneur to unlock infinite income.

And the diverse group of people we’ve mentored include young couples like Jan and Alicia who recently made their first sale online, through to serial entrepreneurs, Shawn and Kelly, who made $40k in their first 3 months.

So if you’re looking to change your life, and you’re willing to put in extra effort and energy to do so, simply enter your name and email address in the box on the right to get access to our complementary digital marketing video training series – to discover if an online business is a good fit for you.

We had the privilege of listening into the Digital Lifestyle Blueprint webinar with Jay Kubassek this week.

What is the Digital Lifestyle Blueprint exactly? . . . In a nutshell, it provides the answers to ALL these searching questions:

  • Where did I come from?
  • Where am I going?
  • How am I going to get there?
  • Who’s going to help me?
  • What if I can’t make it?
  • How do I know if I’m on the right path?

digital lifestyle blueprint

Stop and contemplate those questions for a minute.

And consider the FACT, your current way of thinking has only got you to where you are today (ouch!).

We’re not saying your current way of thinking is wrong – because – IT IS WHAT IT IS. It can’t be changed, because it’s history. You have to agree with that?

However . . .

To change your circumstances, and NOT ACCEPT the status quo any longer, it’s fair to say you must CHANGE your thinking.

In order to have more time, more money, more freedom . . .

. . . You need to change tack. You need a new strategy. You need to think differently!

Now we’re not telling you this because we have all the answers for you – because we don’t.

We’re telling you this because, it’s our first hand experience.

Back in 2009, when we were both laid off at the same time – we realised how stressed we were, how under-appreciated we were at work, how bored we were –  and that we couldn’t go on living life like that.

Our A-ha! moment didn’t happen in a moment. It wasn’t an epiphany. It actually took about 3 months of realisation to work out there was a better way for us.

Our intention here is to plant the seed of hope for you . . .

To help you grow the realisation what you’re doing right now is not entirely right for you, and your decision to change doesn’t have to be made overnight, but it has to be carefully nurtured.

So to help you in that respect, to help fertilise your thought processes, we’re sharing Jay’s Top 10 Personal Logic Success Statements for you to peruse, ponder and percolate.

The Top 10 Personal Success Statements Of All Time

personal success statement

1.            I THINK and ACT as if I am ALREADY SUCCESSFUL – It’s too late to fail and I assume I’ll succeed

We’ve talked about this already here

People think we’re “SUCCESSFUL” already . . . but, deep down inside, we’re not where we want to be . . . YET!

So we figured, if we ACT like we’re successful, sooner or later we’ll BE the success we want to be, and in the meantime, we’ll FEEL like we’re successful.

Seeing as these practices don’t cost anything, except discipline and time well spent, it’s pretty much a win-win, if you ask us.

2.            I am limited by nothing more than the KNOWLEDGE I LACK, NOT by my circumstances or who I am . . . therefore I am committed to investing whatever it takes in myself.

This boils down to resourcefulness. Most people think they need to have ready resources, or ALL the necessary knowledge before they can make change happen, but that’s not the case. They simply need to be resourceful. To have the open-mindedness to learn, to commit, and to perservere.

Think of your knowledge as a bank account. You can’t make a withdrawal from an account that isn’t funded, can you?

3.            I will never outperform my self-esteem. (Whether it’s love, money, health etc – we settle for exactly what we intrinsically believe we are worth/deserve)

We wrote about this in our book. With regards to income, how much you earn right now is what you think you’re worth. Because you’ve settled for that. Because it’s a standard you’ve set for yourself. But, that’s also why you only earn what you do, because that’s your standard.

So if you want to quadruple your current income, you can’t do that with a standard that’s labelled with how much you currently earn. It won’t work. Your standard has to be raised. So you have to change your thinking, change your beliefs, and change your self-worth label.

4.            READY, AIM, FIRE – I am strategic – I always start with the end in mind. People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan.

Most people think this is the boring bit, so they skip over it, with the notional thought they’ll come back and doing it properly (we’re speaking from experience here – guilty!). In fact, this is the pivotal bit – it’s the part where you prove to yourself you’re taking your business seriously. Not treating it like a hobby, or dabbling, or trying!

Successful businesses and successful entrepreneurs have business plans. They have a strategy. And they have goals.

5.            I know that busy-ness is often a form of laziness. I am proactive and productive.

We live in a fast-paced world. We demand fast results. And we all only have 24 hours in the day. Each moment of precious time (you can’t get it back once it’s wasted, right?) must be handled with care.

EVERYBODY says they’re busy – but most are tricking themselves about being productively busy. Don’t fool yourself. Work smart. Busy yourself with money producing tasks.

6.            Birds of a feather flock together. Therefore I choose my friends and influences carefully.

Surround yourself by people who will stretch you, inspire you, and earn more than you – rather than those who equal you, demoralise you, and earn the same as you.

7.            I am willing to question everything I know. I know that I don’t know what I don’t know.

Don’t accept the status quo. Just because something has been done a certain way for years or for decades, doesn’t mean it’s right today in the 21st Century.

Also, be happy to build knowledge and invest in yourself at your own pace. Our coaching experience has taught us that some people grasp issues and principles quicker than others – so it’s vitally important not to compare your progress with anyone else – only compare yourself to the version of you one month or one year ago.

8.            I understand that remuneration (the money I earn) is compensation for service rendered. Therefore, I seek to get paid for the value (products, services etc) I deliver.

You earn from the value you deliver. The more value you deliver to help a person solve a problem, and the more people you help, the more you earn.

A big blocker most people face is they don’t give themselves credit for how much they know. And because they know how to do something they assume everyone else knows it too. Which is completely wrong!

Learn how to package your knowledge in a way to best help others, albeit by way of an affiliate product, then you’ll earn what you’re worth.

9.            The outcome is more important than the process. If there is a way, I will find it. I am resourceful and creative.

The process will involve making mistakes and failing your way forward. Note: the word ‘failure’ is only used by employees. Entrepreneurs test out mistakes in order to learn. However, if an entrepreneur makes the same mistake a third time – that’s dumb.

The important focus is the result, and not the steps taken to get there.

10.          I know that I get more of whatever I focus on . . . I know my strengths and my weaknesses. Therefore, instead of focusing on my weaknesses, I focus on my strengths.

As Tony Robbins always says: “Where focus goes, energy flows”. Given that growing any business is a roller coaster ride, it’s essential to focus on the positive aspects i.e.: your strengths.

Nobody is great at everything. It pays to outsource the dreary, repetitive stuff, and the stuff you don’t like doing, and the stuff you’re no good at doing. That’s why we work together, because our strengths and weaknesses are complimentary.

So, what’s your next step?

We hope you enjoyed this post and learned something from it.

What we’re out to achieve here is the questions to you need to be asking yourself and the statements you need to be making to yourself so you can make that Digital Lifestyle a reality and change your lifes for ever.

So we encourage you to think about that and think about the effort required to build an online business in the perspective of grinding away at a job earning money to line other people’s pockets!!

Decide to educate yourself on leveraging the internet so can take control of your own live/time/freedom.

As Mahatma Gandhi said:

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Learning about working online, being an affiliate marketer and running an online business is a life long skill.

We learned all we know from Six Figure Mentors – and we love the authenticity and integrity of their training and education.

What’s more, we love their business system as it removes the hurdles from the steeplechase – so you don’t need to be a techie.

So if you’re serious about building a profitable online business, now is the best time to start. Get educated and start living and earning as you’re meant to.

Meet Our Millionaire Mentor, Author, Speaker and Coach – Stuart Ross here!

Both being 60’s babies, we were born in an era where:

  • we walked to school by ourselves
  • we raced up the street to ride on the back of the dust cart for a couple of blocks
  • our mothers drank and smoked when they were pregnant with us
  • meals were always meat, potatoes and two veg served on the dot at 5.30pm
  • Fiona wore crocheted tops, paisley trews, and seersucker dresses
  • Greg’s entire family of nine, and one dog, would pile into the Holden Kingswood station wagon and with NO seat belts and drive across New Zealand

Life was fun.

Life was simple.

BUT . . . there was never any expectation or encouragement to change :(

Success was defined as: Getting a Trade. Getting married and having a family!

Any talk of doing anything different was met with indifference.

We were lied to about what was truly possible in this big wide world of ours.

The reality is – that’s how our parents were bought up too, and they just wanted the best for us (what parent doesn’t). But all they knew was how they’d been brought up – so those old ways were impressed on us too.

Looking back – we both took that ‘limitation’ or ‘lack of encouragement to change‘ as a challenge. A challenge to break the mold. A challenge to not live life the way our parents had in mind for us.

Maybe you’re the same?

Or maybe, you’re still looking for the real success formula – the one your Mother lied to you about?

Do You Want To Be Successful?

Do you want your lifestyle of design?

Do you have what it takes?

Now, at this point, you’re thinking, I don’t have a snowball’s chance-in-hell of being successful because I’m:

not most likely to succedd

BUT . . .

The GOOD NEWS IS . . .

. .  . you can still do great without all those things. Because they’re not what’s needed to be successful.

Maybe your Mother lied to you about these things too?

Ours didn’t – most of those qualities simply weren’t encouraged in our families as we were growing up. They were for ‘other people‘!!!

Just Get A Trade. Get A Job. That’s all. That was the blueprint for life back then.

BUT . . . it doesn’t work that way now!

>>> Fast Forward To Today

Today, people think we’re “SUCCESSFUL” already . . .but, deep down inside, we’re not where we want to be . . . YET!

So we figured, if we ACT like we’re successful, sooner or later we’ll BE successful, and in the meantime, we’ll FEEL like we’re successful.

Seeing as these practices don’t cost anything, except some discipline and some time well spent, it’s pretty much a win-win, if you ask us.

SO, it begs the questions:

What Really Leads To Success Now?

And what do you need to do to ACT like being successful?

Happily we have the research done by Richard St John to help us out.

Richard battled self-doubt and ‘got over himself’ to interview over 500 successful people from all fields of expertise (including 4 Nobel Prize Winners). He interviewed them all face to face, over the course of 10 years, and asked each person the same question:

Click to watch Richard’s video below, to see for yourself all the interestingly successful people he interviewed, and the A-Z of careers they work in:

So you too can learn directly from people like Bill Gates, Martha Stewart, Richard Branson, Larry Page, James Cameron, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Rupert Murdoch, Quincy Jones, Russell Crowe, Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington to name but a few.

The crunch work was in analysing all their answers and comments to reveal the common factors all these successful people attributed their success to.

But it was well worth the effort because Richard came up with The 8 To Be Great – or in other words:

The 8 Success Characteristics Your Mother Lied to You About

passion

Love what you do, and be passionate about why you do what you do. Passion is not something you’re born with, it’s something you learn and develop. Don’t do something because everyone else is doing it or because a friend or family member wants you to do it. Make sure it’s something that makes you leap out of bed each morning.

work

Work really hard. In fact, don’t just work really hard, work smart – which means stay focused on the profit generating tasks, and use your 24 hours each day wisely to accomplish the steps that will take you closer to your goal. Take responsibility for your actions, as the buck stops with you.

focus

Focus on one thing at a time (one project, reading one book, one traffic generation method, one task at hand) and not everything all at once. As the old proverb rings true: if you’re a jack of all trades, you’re a master of none. In the online world, this is super tricky, as there’s too much hype and shiny objects that keep trying to tempt you. Stay committed to whatever you start and:

Follow One Course Until Successful

push

Keep pushing yourself to work smarter, stay focused, and stay motivated. You will mess up along the way (it’s human – we’re wired to learn from our mistakes), so expect failures, and push yourself to learn from them, rather than beat yourself up over them.

ideas

Always strive to come up with good ideas like this chap does. Leave your mind open for solutions to percolate through. Trust yourself, trust your judgement, and trust your intuition. When you do have a good idea that makes you giddy with excitement, repeatedly ask yourself the question: “So what that means is . . .” until you’re fully investigated all possible outcomes of your new idea.

improve

Continue to improve yourself and everything you do forever. Make sure you do something each day to better yourself, whether it be reading, writing, meditating, training, or practicing. Make a conscious decision to constantly and deliberately improve your mind, skills and overall ability.

serve

Serve others something of value because success isn’t just about ‘me, me, me’. It’s extremely rewarding to help others, and very satisfying to share in their A-ha! Moments, but the biggest bonus in serving others is the financial reward that naturally follows.

persist

Persist, because there is no overnight success. Keep on keeping on, and never give up. It’s like being on a roller coaster, you’re strapped in for the ride, and there’s no getting off. Up days follow down days, but you keep pushing on.

These are the 8 traits you need to have for success

These are the 8 core characteristics your Mother never told you to embody and practice day in and day out to be a success at whatever you turn your hand to.

These 8 traits exist in the 500+ successful people who Richard St John interviewed.

Start personifying those 8 success characteristics today, then add on the skills that are specific to your career or to your area of expertise. Skills like Creativity, Management, Computer Literacy, Communication, Analytical, and Technical abilities.

So now you know what it takes to be successful, and you’re ready to cultivate those 8 particular characteristics, get ready to flex your entrepreneurial mind and muscle.
