5 BEN Net Questions for Steve.

My Short Answer!
Personally:
The Gold Coast has a lifestyle edge to it, so getting out of bed to join the vibe is easy, but the real clincher that makes everything worthwhile, is my fantastic my family – I really struck it lucky on that score!
Professionally:
I find it so inspirational that everyday I get to work and share my personal Vision, Purpose and Contribution Value.

My longer Answer is beating Terminal Cancer Changes everything?
See below “I should be dead yet here I am”

I develop Online Business Communities.
Smart Centralised Community Hubs built exclusively around the Villagers Needs and Aspirations.
We then insert the “Biz Villagers” into these very engaging Communities.

A little deeper
It has been my experience in developing out sporting communities, that has contributed to our current “Connection Experience” options. We are now operating across a much wider range of sectors than originally planned. The common denominator that has grown from all this, is the “Bottom Up Villager Model” which is at the heart of almost all business endeavour.

The 3 Critical Drivers
1. CENTRALISE
2. 
CONNECT
3. 
PATHWAYS

This is Access not Advertising.
Connection Experiences create the opportunity for Business to become ‘Biz-Villagers’ and part of the Village Vibe. 

Vital Ingredients

Village Vibe Revenues

The Villager & Village

The Aspirational Strive

Our Primary Function is simple
1. Centralise it:
Collect, Centralise and Simplify all the fragmented information and resources into a Centralised Hub Platform
2. Connection Experiences:
Establish the ‘Needs’ and ‘Aspiration’ drivers of the “Villagers” then create specific “Connection Experiences” to meet and exceed.
3. Pathways:
Establish the current and potential ‘Villagers’ touch points then begin connecting the dots by creating organic online pathways between them..

Our Primary Aspirations
1. Find the next level of the Connection Experience and it’s Vibe.
2. Find the next level for the connected Pathways that deliver the Connection Experiences
3. Increase the Village Vibe footprint and its Village to Village relationships.

I have a strong sense of ‘Willingness’ and ‘Contribution Value.’ I also have a strong emphasis on my ‘Vision’ and ‘Purpose’ which keeps me on ‘Direction’ and in good ‘Momentum’

My Personal “Pocket Template”
This keeps me Purposeful & on Direction.

This is more than an inert list – It’s my genome, my DNA and I believe has saved my life on several occasions.
1. Be a little unrealistic often – it feeds my dreams and stimulates my visions and purpose.
2. Do one thing at a time
3. Be Remarkable at it
4. Be Resourceful with it
5. Add Value to it or don’t do it
6. Surround it all with amazing people who can turn it all into its fullest reality – Leverage the talents of those better than I.

I have 2 types of Ideal Client

  2. CONNECTION EXPERIENCES
    Most businesses need to create a cleaner and more attractive online Connection Experience with stronger Contribution Value attributes.
  3. PATHWAYS
    The need to create clearer online pathways between their Business Hub and offerings and the target market /Villager that needs them

To Partner or Aquire an online environment I have a 5 step process.
There are a lot of existing businesses that could easily fit our partnering criteria.

What really gets me out of bed every morning ?
I shouldn’t be here – Yet I am !!!!
A Broken Neck, bad and delicate  break right on the spinal cord  – Paralysed for 8 months
Fatal Aneurysm Main Hepatic Artery  that I survived by absolute luck + more absolute luck  + a very talented surgeon that brought me back.
Terminal Cancer with only weeks to live – This is the real deal Unsurvivable & Incurable Cancer. A Liver and Pancreatic Combo.

This stuff changes a person 
I have changed, how could I not? – I was pushed to the edge, but I did’t go over, I now live my Life on the edge, and from this edge I now see all kinds of things that I could never have seen from the crowded centre.

So What gets me up Personally every morning?
The fact that I can !

I get to take that next step and the one beyond that until the magic of life’s momentum reaches out and embraces my efforts

My story @ “My Walk with Cholangio the Beast”

My Personal Page steveholmes.net.au

So what gets me out of bed every morning ‘Professionally’ ?
Having the opportunity of my very own unique Vision and Purpose, and its Contribution Value is a hugely motivating driver. Getting out of bed  every morning fresh with aspirations of exceeding at something, something that is remarkable, resourceful and  that adds value, is special. Being able to share this professionally is even more special and uplifting – there is nothing better than seeing others benefit from my own brand of Contribution Value.

These words all boil down to and conspire in keeping me on “Direction” with strong ‘Momentum’ every day.

I have a saying . . . “With Vision and Momentum is with life – without them is without life!”


If David could defeat the undefeatable Goliath, then I a simple  “Cholangio Warrior” could defeat Cholangio the Beast one blow at a time

The following are excerpts from”Thoughts are Things – Powerful Things” @ www.steveholmes.net.au

TAT: Thoughts are Things – Powerful Things
Spontaneous bursts of pure energy that flash into and across my mind at lightening speed. I reach out and capture them, to give them some life before their time has passed – I Capture them on paper – or my Iphone!

THOUGHTS AND THINKING HAVE THEIR VERY OWN UNIQUE RELATIONSHIP
This is an UNDERSTANDING and a PROCESS. To really comprehend this is Power in itself!

Its quite possibly Enlightenment ?

“Understanding this, has certainly got me out of the dog house more than a few times in recent years, and equally it has allowed me to tune in and create my own opportunities and momentum” 

A huge reality crash
My reality came crashing down on me – My life as I knew it, had completely come to a STOP! I had time to reflect and look inward. Problem was that when I looked inward all I could see was a lot of 
 Thought Garbage clogging up my ole grey matter.  Hmmm something needed to be done and I really needed something to get me focused and back on track, I need to get my thinking freedom back and it needed to be at my best to have a chance of overcoming the battle that I was now drawn into. I had to gain Vision with purposeful thinking.

So I began a big almost indiscriminate dumping, filing and reorganising of “MY THOUGHTS” – I began digging myself out of this Garbage Like Pile of Thoughts -Looking to uncover “ME” 

I dumped everything into a loose arrangement of  headings which I called “Chapters of Me.” Once I felt I had dumped it all, I then began simplifying and refiling to make it lighter and easier on me. I started to see “ME” and my Contribution Value in life – it gave me the injection of willingness and purpose to get back up and move forward.

“Tick Tiny Goals and Walk on Water”
These words filled my need to recognise that nothing in life is to small or insignificant, nor should anything be cast aside as impossible. Everything is possible if you let it have a chance! This thinking became a huge factor in my climb for survival. I allowed my mind to Walk on Water to explore my horizons and possibilities without limitation. To go freely to a special place to create to feel, and to believe in things beyond my current realities. A place or space in my mind like Alice’s Looking Glass

Adhering to a core culture of Ticking Tiny Goals and Walking on Water and consistently being a little unrealistic often, has effectively broken down the dangerous limitations of convenience. The convenience of settling for existing Beliefs and Stats that undermines and steals so much, and in my case that meant life (literally). To Walk on Water really has lifted me up to new realities, to see what could be, its keeps me a vibrant and fresh – it inspires! I have so much more potential to discover and realise.

Tough & Smart Versus Willingness
There were no guarantees, or promises. All I had left was an unconditional Willingness to get back up and take that next step and the one after that until I succeeded – when there were no options, there was no fear, just focus.

Learning on the Fly + Willingness Beyond Reach.
‘Cholangio the Beast’ you busted through my front door in the dark of night, you wrestled me to the ground repeatedly raping me to within seconds of my last breath, ‘Cholangio’ you left me for dead, cold and beaten, but I did not die, I still breath – Cholangio I discovered something that you could not take from me, something you and your cancer could not see, I discovered my edge, and that my ‘Willingness’ was beyond your reach. 

Thank you Cholangio, I now see so much more!
I was pushed to my edge, but I did not go over. Out on my edge was scary, but I now see many more things than I had ever seen from the crowed comfortable centre that you stole me from. 

My ‘Willingness’ became my life raft – My ‘Edge’ became my navigator – together they revived me, transporting me up and beyond the reach of Cholangio to a place that offers hope and inspiration to those who follow.

Get back up, Get back up, Get back up.
There is no manual for this type of stuff, nor will it be pretty. How hard or tough is now irrelevant, just get back up Steve, and do it now without conditions!
“Rise and Rise again until Lambs become Lions” From the movie Robin Hood – A favourite saying that stuck to me and keep me on ‘Purpose’  -I did got back up again !

Here is a clip I discovered in my dark days that helped.
