When I first started looking for a step-by-step plan to get rich, I was sadly disappointed that there was no-one who was prepared to tell me ‘do this, do that, get rich’.
I couldn’t understand why not? After all there were plenty of people online who were rich, or at least were telling me they were wealthy beyond dreams.
What I came to realize, after years of following this, that and the other training programs, is that most people who are claiming that they have the ‘secret’ to getting rich online only give you part of the answer.
The reason why they do this is obvious, in retrospect. By giving you part of the method, these canny marketers can then follow up with more and more ‘partial’ trainings that, hopefully, build up the complete picture.
One big problem then occurs – we call it ‘information overload’.
You end up with a hard drive littered with ‘partial’ training programs, possibly from different people, and your brain goes all fuzzy when it tries to put them all together.
And the result? You end up doing nothing.
Information overload means that, no matter how much ‘training’ you receive, you are incapable of actually making any progress because it just all seems too complicated.
Step-by-step means exactly that. You take the first step then, once you’ve crossed the starting line, take the next step, always following a clear path to your goal.
Of course, you have to set your goal in the first place. And, no, it’s not just ‘get rich’. Your initial goal has to be something definable and that you can envisage achieving.
Without a clearly defined goal, you could spend a lifetime planning how to ‘get rich’, but never, actually, take the steps to get there.
It’s highly important that each section of your step-by-step plan to get rich is something you really believe is achievable. It’s no use dreaming of becoming a billionaire if you don’t know how to make your first million. Or, indeed your first 100 grand.
And few of us really believe, in our heart of hearts, that we can make a 100 grand that easily.
So set your initial sights lower. Plan to make $10,000 first of all. Or even set your target as $1000 if you’ve never made even a dollar online before.
Then, when you’ve achieved that first target, and proved to yourself (and your friends and relations) that your step-by-step plan to get rich really works, you can set the next higher target – scale the system up and follow the path to your dream income.
None of this is difficult, providing you start with a step-by-step plan and a defined and, more importantly, believable goal.
That goal, and that plan, will be different for everybody. Because we’re not all the same. Which is why the marketers peddling their ‘partial’ get-rich-quick schemes cannot possibly give you the solution all-in-one.
And that’s why, if you’ve already tried to earn money online, you’ve failed to make it.
So your step-by-step plan to get rich must be tailored to you. It must take into account your current abilities, your short-term (as well as long-term) goal and your mindset.
By ‘mindset’ I’m not talking mamby-pamby nonsense about Law of Attraction or anything like that (there is some validity to the Law of Attraction, but it’s not what you and nearly everybody else thinks it is).
It IS so important that your mind is in the right place, both at the beginning of your training as well as how you develop confidence throughout your training. Without confidence, you won’t feel like going forward and are more likely to give up too easily – which is almost certainly why you have failed before.
It doesn’t take much to instill confidence – just a helping hand. Which is where coaching comes in.
Now, I know you may well be thinking ‘but, Peter, I can’t afford coaching’. But what if I could show you how you can get one-on-one coaching PLUS the training you need for a few tens of dollars a month – would that interest you?
It should do. I’ve a few places opening up for this opportunity right now. So hop on a call with me (it’s free) and let’s discuss your current situation, where you want to be in a year’s time and formulate a step-by-step plan to get you there.

It is mid-January and the days are, finally, getting noticeably longer – which is a relief for those of us suffering from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or, as I often refer to it, Seasonally Afflicted Depression! Whenever spring approaches I’m so happy to be getting over SAD.
For years I suffered from SAD and didn’t realize it. Thankfully it doesn’t affect me so much these days, but my symptoms started as a growing depression as the year reached towards its close and a definite feeling that my life wasn’t worth living shortly after Christmas.
I first noticed it as an affectation. As the days get shorter and the nights draw in, when you wake up in the morning and it is still dark, a lot of the joy of life seems to leave you. Yes, this feeling is ameliorated by the weeks leading up to Christmas and the excitement of the season.
But after the Christmas festivities are over and everything still seems black, when you go to work in the dark and return home in the blackness of night, depressive mood swings can catch you out.
It’s been better since I have been spending more time in sub-tropical climes. For example in Shenzhen, China, which I visit often, the day length changes only by an hour or so between summer and winter, regulating the day length, and my mood, to a pattern which helps me cope better when I return to the UK.
The real key to getting over SAD, though, is to formulate a response to your depressive thoughts. This can be action based or an emotional response.
Whenever I’m feeling in the slightest depressed, actually getting off my arse and doing something spurs me into a more positive frame of mind. Actually accomplishing what I set out to do and ticking it off my to-do list helps lift my spirits.
Another way is to actually realize that you are better off than a lot of other people in the world. It might not seem like it, when depression raises its ugly head, but most of us live in a virtual paradise. The very fact that you have a roof over your head, water to drink and food to eat, and have no natural predators stalking you, means you’re better off than the majority of other living things on this planet.
Take a look around you. It might seem that the birds in the sky are soaring through the air in apparent freedom – ‘as free as a bird’. In reality, though, they are forever looking around, fearful of being preyed upon and always searching for that next peck of food.
And don’t forget that their lives are tragically short compared to ours. Even if you look at the lives of other humans on this planet, a huge proportion of them are struggling to find food, water and, often, somewhere to rest at night. Look back in history only one hundred years and you’ll soon see that life was more difficult, and uncertain, for your ancestors.
I find it helps to reflect on the relative peace in our current lifestyle, compared to the struggle of other living beings, and what we have to look forward to.
And if you don’t have anything to look forward to, why not change that outlook? Start making plans to better your situation. Don’t let depression drag you down but keep your head up and fixed on a brighter future. Just as the days will get longer and the sun will come out, so your life can be changed for the better if only you will set yourself achievable goals.
Need help doing that? Let’s discuss it over a friendly chat. Schedule a call with me by clicking here and, together, we can put together an action plan for your brighter and better future. I look forward to helping you in getting over SAD – together we can crack it.
Do you know that the six richest people in the world now own more wealth than the bottom 50% of the world’s population? And here’s another breath-taking statistic – the wealthiest 1% of the population collectively have more money than the other 99%.
Because of the widening gap between rich and poor, the wealthy are able to spend billions on ridiculous extravagances.
For example Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder, is spending $42 million on the construction of a clock designed to run for 10,000 years. The Sultan of Brunei owns 500 Rolls Royce limousines. Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, owns a collection of fully restored World War II fighter planes.
And, of course, the wealthy know how to become wealthier by making shrewd investments. Paul Allen bought the Seattle Seahawks for $200 million in 1997 – today this NFL team is worth a reputed $994 million.
What about you? If you had wealth beyond measure, with what extravagance would you indulge yourself? I’m sure you could think of something – your own island, like Richard Branson or a luxury super-yacht with gym, two swimming pools, hot tubs, disco club and luxurious apartments like Roman Abramovich.
This is, for most of us, the stuff of dreams. How about turning some of those dreams into reality?
I’m not suggesting that you can become a billionaire overnight but, with a sensible investment in yourself and your future, you can realise enough income to enjoy many of life’s luxuries.
Set your goals just a little lower, say for a new home or that expensive car you’ve always wanted, and all the things that you’ve set your heart on can become a reality.
Actually it’s remarkably simple and, each and every day, thousands of people are taking steps to invest in themselves and their future.
I’m talking about starting your own online business. It’s easier than you imagine and costs very little to get started – far less than any bricks and mortar business.
I’ve done it, I have trained others to do it and now you can do it too. All you have to do is schedule a call with me and I will map out an action plan for you. Or, if you want to know more in advance, download my new book ‘It’s Not Rocket Science’

What does that mean, really?
So many of us, and we’re only human with all the usual human frailties, promise to take action. And we always promise ourselves that we will do it tomorrow.
It’s an easy excuse “I’ll do it tomorrow”. Yet how many times does tomorrow come and you haven’t done what you promised to do?
It’s not just you. Don’t beat yourself up about it. I am as guilty as everyone else of putting things off until tomorrow.
Over the years I’ve watched people who are action takers – people who get things done, successful people that everyone else admires.
How different is that to the majority of the population who wander, aimlessly, from one thing to another, always putting off the disagreeable things (or what they imagine to be disagreeable) to tomorrow.
And isn’t it funny how anything that appears to be ‘work’ also seems to be something that you don’t want to do, right now? And that it always falls into the category – ‘I’ll do that tomorrow’.
Remember, ‘tomorrow never comes’
It’s always today. So, if you really want to do something, if you actually want to move closer to your personal goals, take action now.
You can’t take action yesterday, so take action NOW!
Become one of the action takers – become one of those people who get things done. It’s simple – all you have to do is take action NOW!
