Breakaway From Being Average


Coast through life and stay within the tolerance bands of being average and its guaranteed throughout your working like, you are going to contribute to making someone else successful.

I wrote this short book about the concept of time and if digested correctly becomes a wakeup call, so I recommend you read the section that breaks down the average persons day. – Enjoy 

Can you image the average person reads one book per year, so the rest of the time must be spent flicking through social media, watching Netflix or watching someone on YouTube that is trying to convince you they are making £1000 a day affiliate marketing, working from home.

This is 2019 and we live in an age now where you can learn anything at anytime thanks to the internet running through your smartphone that you can’t help picking up every 5 minutes just to see if something has changed in your Facebook or Instagram page.

When I was studying for a degree, I had to use this building called a library (now called the world wide web) and then spend hours researching books, then writing information down because you couldn’t take books out of the library as you could always guarantee someone had it reserved at the time you wanted it.

Fast forward to current day and you can access information on demand anytime you like so you have the capability to learn anything if you have the mindset to focus. So being average and wasting life in front of a television or using your thumb to flick through pages of crap on Facebook daily just on the off chance you might have missed something, seems to be how a large percentages of people like drifting through life, then they moan about not having enough money each month to cover those bills.

Do the research on people like Elon Musk who is mostly self-taught and look at the number of books he read and absorbed throughout his childhood and even today he continues to read and gain knowledge. Look at the top 1% and what sacrifices they made to achieve success.

The book I wrote a while back proves most people have at least 3 hours spare each evening where they decide its best spent, feet up in front of the TV watching some crap while time drifts by. Imagine if you took those 3 hours and looked at it over a one week period, then you have potentially wasted 21 hours of your existence on this planet.

If you dedicated those 21 hours to gaining knowledge or doing a course, its highly likely you will achieve some level of success. Those 21 hours over the space of one year gives you 1,092 hours each year to focus on improving you.

Time is the one thing you will never get back

You should be looking at yourself as an asset and everything you learn has the potential to improve the net worth of that asset, then take it up a level and set goals with defined objectives so you map out the path to success. The message in all of this is time is the one thing you can never get back once it’s gone so whatever you waste now, you are going to pay for in later years.

What are our true limits and do we know how to achieve them


Do you really know your limits 


Is it really possible to go beyond your limits and exceed the pain barrier ?

History is shown great people have done just that and as an example, two names come to mind right away.

  • Elon Musk
  • David Goggin’s

If we start with David Goggins

David used to be an elite Navy Seal who competed in Ultra Marathons on a regular basis for a charity that was close to his heart. Ultra Marathons are 100 mile plus races where only the fittest people on the planet compete. You hear runners who compete in your average 26-mile race talk about the brick wall and having to block out pain around mile 15. David was running over a 100 miles competing in races sometimes back to back. So if he hit this brick wall early, you can be sure he smashed the wall apart and if his mind was telling him that’s it stop I’m done, he calculated that he still had 60% reserve in the tank so he wasn’t going to listen to the voice in the brain telling him to stop.


I am not going to go in-depth on David and his achievements as you can read all about them via google but I wanted to use this as an example to prove its possible to push yourself beyond the limits you believe you are capable of.


Elon Musk

Elon IS CEO of a successful car company (Tesla) and runs Spacex that has proposed the development of Mars transportation infrastructure in order to facilitate the eventual colonization of Mars. He also has a large-scale solar business, plus numerous other business ventures currently running alongside.

You cannot even imagine what type of energy and mental focus it takes to control those businesses of that magnitude.  Elon has continually pushed past the limits his brain was telling him he was capable of and in doing so entered a new level of energy he tapped into continuously.


I am just using David and Elon as an example of what’s possible when you force through the barriers set purposely by your brain. We believe in long periods of rest time and constantly say to ourselves “I need to rest” so you drop onto the sofa and search through Netflix Which is a form of self-soothing. You complain you don’t have enough money throughout the year for holidays. You are always trying to make ends meet.

Consider reading this short book on time and you will understand why after reading it.

I have been studying people’s perception of time over the last ten years and what it means to be governed by the 24-hour clock. When you look at it in detail you will see we all start off and then end up at the same finish line, called death. It’s what we do in between that will define you as a person. This short book helps you to understand time in a new way that will lead to you doing a complete re-boot of the brain. Take back control of time before its too late

It will show you a different side into time and will quite possibly shock you


I believe every one of us is capable of going beyond our limits but the question is are we willing to go into those dark places in order to achieve success, if not enjoy that film you are watching on Netflix and have a great day.
