Transcript – from Fearless Motion.

I want to share a very important story with you today. 

It’s a story I think everyone should hear.

Before he died, a father said to his son;

“Here is a watch your grandfather gave me… It is almost 200 years old. Before I give it to you, go to the jewellery store in the city. Tell them that I want to sell it, and see how much they offer you.”

The son went to the jewellery store, came back to his father, and said; “They offered $100 because it is so old.”

The father said; “Well, try the pawnshop.”

The son went to the pawnshop, came back to his father, and said; “The pawnshop offered only $20 because it has a scratch”

The father asked his son to go to the museum and show them the watch.

The son quietly questioned his father’s judgement, but still, willing to act on his last wishes he went to the museum, when he came back he said to his father, “The curator offered $375,000 for this very rare piece to be included in their precious antique collection.”

The father responded;

“I wanted to show you that the right place will value you in the right way. Don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry because you are not valued. Never stay in a place where someone doesn’t see your value or you don’t feel appreciated.”

If you don’t know your value, you will always settle for far less than you deserve.

People who don’t know their value settle for less than they are worth. In relationships. When it comes to their profession… or their job… or their friendships… They know they are worth more, but they settle for someone else’s definition of their worth.

You see… that is the difference between MOST PEOPLE and the few.

 That is the difference between people who LOVE the life they have created for themselves and those who CAN’T STAND the life they are living.


MOST people will allow just about anyone to influence their perception of themselves… But people who love their life refuse to accept the opinions of small minded people.

They refuse to be put in a BOX. They will not be defined by anyone but themselves.

 They know their value is set by themselves, by their own thoughts about who they are, NOT someone else’s opinion of what they are worth.

Don’t let them put a price on you! You set your own price!

 And don’t go giving discounts to other people so you can fit in or be liked… People pleasers never end up happy in the end. Put yourself FIRST.

You must build your self-worth by the WORK you do every day… on yourself.

You build it by the way that you show up EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Day in, day out, no excuses, no shortcuts, just a relentless dedication to be the best that they can be.

If you have someone in your life that tries to diminish your abilities in ANY WAY… The time has come to move those people along.

It’s time to awaken that part of you that DEMANDS MORE FOR YOUR LIFE.

Because ONLY YOU KNOW what you are truly capable of.

It’s time to wake up and SHOCK THE WORLD!

Shock those that doubted you with a disturbing level of determination.

Shock those that doubted you with a commitment to excellence that cannot be matched by those of weak heart.

Shock those that doubted you with the actions you take today as you draw a line in the sand and commit to becoming the person NO ONE thought you could be.

Because ONLY YOU KNOW what you are TRULY capable of.

In this world you only have to earn the respect of one person… that person is YOU.

You determine the level you demand of yourself.

It’s time to DEMAND MORE!

It’s time to prove once and for all, WHO. YOU ARE.

WHO you will become!

And what you will never settle for again.

Raise your standards. RISE UP to a higher level… and let NO ONE question YOUR INTEGRITY again.

DAY BY DAY. BRICK BY BRICK. You start NOW. You build the foundations through the SELF-WORK you put in every, single, day.

 Build yourself up, to become an unbreakable force… an unstoppable machine

Fueled by the results you get, from the work you put in today, and every day… from this day until your last.

NO MORE will you settle for the opinions of others.

NO MORE will you settle for someone else’s opinion of YOUR VALUE. NOW YOU determine YOUR VALUE.

Through YOUR self-work, YOUR self-education and YOUR self-determination of YOUR OWN destiny.

The destiny that is in YOUR HANDS.

You know what you have to do!

The time for change IS NOW!

TODAY is the day.

When it comes to your own SELF-WORTH…


Know your worth… and NEVER, EVER settle for anything less..


What does it mean to be committed to learning and why is it important?

Simply put .... the more we know the more we grow (there's a seussism in there somewhere).

And just like there's a catch in the wonderous Dr Seuss experience, there's also a catch in learning new stuff too.

Because the more we grow the more we realise what we don't know.

There are no three ways about it. You can't cheat your way to wisdom. You can't cheat your way into learning new insights, skills, knowledge and experiences. There's no magic pill you take and then wake up with the smarts. You need to do the (pleasurable) work by .....

investing your time, and then time will generously repay you with 'ta-das' and 'f^ck me ... is that so' moments of intrinsic joy. I like those feelings. I like those feelings A LOT.

So I continually learn. My learnings turn into experiments vis-à-vis learning.

Here's what I do .... I:

  • read books (Amazon surely loves me by now);

  • read newly published journals and white pages (Google Scholar is terrific for this);

  • hang out at the community library, and Bond University library, and devour the contents of textbooks;

  • read web blogs which lead me to another and another (god love a backlink);

  • attend online trainings at the Australian Marketing Institute;

  • show up to webinars; and

  • follow academics and Marketing experts on Linkedin; plus I

  • follow a scattering of people I admire on Twitter.

"If Twitter is fast food eaten in your car, then Medium is a slow meal enjoyed at a table full of scientists, business leaders, poets, and social commentators." (

I love my books the most though, and there's a Predictably Irrational reason why I do.

Ownership increases perceived value to us: When we own something, we immediately grow attached to it. And this, in turn, increases how much we value it.

.... but that being said, I spend a good half an hour most mornings with my coffee and the Writers I love on Medium. There's a paywall for Medium, but the AUD7 per month subscription is one 'luxury' I would trade in any day for the vortex that is Netflix.

This morning, instead of heading into Medium, I read an article in Entrepreneur - "How Becoming a Lifelong Learner Is a Must If You Want to Achieve and Maintain Success" ....

And I'm quoting this straight out of the blog post:

"Every day you commit to learning, growing and developing yourself adds value to who you are and what you have to offer. "

I'm currently creating online courses to teach aspiring entrepreneurs how to start their very own business ... and how to ... fast-track their way into laying a strong foundation to create highly profitable successful brands.

Do you see where I'm going with this post ........ If I don't continually learn and grow, I will fail in my efforts to help my target audience, my potential students:

Aspiring entrepreneurs (perhaps single people) aged 45 years and well into their 50s, who are tired of giving giving giving their expertise to a job only to make their boss rich, and they're also tired of giving giving giving to make everyone else in their lives happy.

It's time for them to take their skills, experience, expertise & passion .... and their genius business idea and start building their very own fulfilling career.

The thing is (and it is a thing), there is a real fear for people who are thinking about being their own boss.

That fear is "what if I fail?".

Why are people scared to start their own business?

  • judgement from peers and family;

  • feelings of loneliness;

  • lack of tech skills because all those kids know how to do all that; and

  • a lack of money or losing all their money.

The online courses I'm creating will 100% ease these fears and get these people to that happy place in the near future where they're, finally, doing something for themselves.

Over the past couple of years I have joined many Facebook networking groups to study the behaviour of aspiring entrepreneurs. It's been enlightening and fascinating, and ....

Honestly, I'm so over the feelings of sadness (honestly, I've cried) when I read how people have been ripped off by scammers who call themselves marketers.

Unwittingly, aspiring entrepreneurs click on sponsored ads in Facebook that go down a sales funnel created by fakers showing off their flashy-sports cars and their stories of success ... only to lieu these aspiring entrepreneurs into paying for business models that don't work. Enough is enough!

You will see, if you explore my website and my Linkedin profile, I have a Master of Marketing and am a Certified Practising Marketer with the Australian Marketing Institute .... therefore,

I just want these aspiring entrepreneurs to learn the the right way, in the correct logical steps, how to build a brand that rocks their world.

Their brand will be something for themselves, so they feel accomplished and wonderful .... but I can't really hijack people away from FB groups (that's a big no no) so I will need to target them via FB sponsored ads...

.... but I have no idea how to set up and launch FB Ads :(

Ya'd think with my extensive post-grad education and 20 years of professional experience I would have launched a thousand Facebooks ads by now to promote the brands I've worked with in the past.

But nope I haven't.

There's never been a need to do FB ads because I grow brands online in an authentic and transparent way ....

However ....

I want to fast-track 'my learning' on how to promote my courses to my target market.

This week I signed up for an online Masterclass on how to do FB ads.

The Masterclass is being created by Jessica Tutton. If you're keen to join her next Masterclass .... Here's a nice little link to her website.

"The fact is, becoming a lifelong learner is a must if you want to achieve and maintain success in our ever-changing world." (Entrepreneur)

It will be worth your time. Promise.

Location: Brisbane Convention Centre

Who Was There: My darling Mum, supportive perfect child and all those super smart people

What Did I Wear: A heavy gown and mortarboard

What Did I Do: I walked on stage in front of my peers and doffed my mortarboard at the Chancellor

What Did I Hear: "Master of Marketing with Distinction awarded to Karley Beadman"

What Did I Feel: It made me feel so proud of myself because I achieved something remarkable

This just goes to show that anyone at any time in their lives, no matter how old (and I'm way old), can do the extraordinary.

Boom! I did it.
