“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” – Anatole France
Good morning peeps, meditation done.
Quote for the Day:
“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.”
Today I have just finished two business plans for two incredibly exciting projects I have been working on, one in London and one on a country estate.
This all came about whilst having a meeting with Brent Richards about this time last year.
Brent is an award-winning architect, designer and creative strategist and innovation consultant, with extensive experience with a broad range of UK & international sectors.
Brent asked me,
“But what would you do if money was no object?”
“Well if money was no object obviously I would like my own centre, that would be my dream.”
He looked at me and smiled,
“Well that’s what you should do then, that is your dream, your vision and people will buy into you and your passion.”
He then went onto say,
“And where would you have your centre your club?”
I thought long and hard and then said,
“Well, I would love a centre in the country with lots of space, greenery and perhaps a small holding to grow crops and horses and cattle so the centre would be self sufficient, but there again I would probably need to open in London if I want to be a global brand.”
“Where about in London, would you like your centre or club to be?”
I immediately replied,
“Near a Royal Park or next to the river.”
“Anything else?” He quizzed
“Well I have always dreamed of having a place in an exotic location, a tropical island, somewhere hot.”
“OK.” He said calmly “You will need to put together a team of people that you can train and share your beliefs and philosophy. Let’s start planning.”
He paused briefly and then said,
“It makes sense to start with London to establish the brand. How much do you think it would cost?
“Off the top of my head, having no idea about the costs involved, I would guess about £10 Million?”
“That sounds about right?” Concluded Brent
So we began planning and it was amazing the more people I spoke to about the idea, no one told me I was crazy, they all said your idea and vision is fabulous, I can see that working and these were all people I really respected for their incredible achievements and considerable business savvy.
Now here I am a year later, with every little detail of my vision religiously scrutinised, costed, analysed by experts in their fields, re-costed with adjustments made with regards to the expert’s feedback and analysis.
Interestingly after all the detailed analysis the final investment figure depending on whether you lease or buy the property is £8 Million to lease or £10 Million to buy, which is near enough exactly the same as my initial thought at the beginning without any research.
Now the plan has been painstakingly completed I just need to raise £8 Million pounds simple l write with a wry smile on my face.
“Sharing your goals with other positive people will help bring them about faster. Get your goals out there and attract people into your life that will help you make them a reality.”
Well, I have found the right people to share my goals with – YOU!
If you have a spare £8 Million lying about give me a shout or if you would like to know more about achieving your own goals, to improve all aspects of your life, by learning more about yoga, breathing and meditation, why not join me on my very first yoga retreat in Morocco at the five – star luxurious Mazagan Beach and Golf Resort from the 10th to 17th of December.
