The $200,000 Packet Of Tim Tams
I’m sitting back in Brisbane airport, waiting for my departure to head back to Perth, Western Australia.
It has a sense of de ja vu, as it was almost sixteen weeks ago that I sat in the international lounge, trembling with nerves as I took action on an idea, inspired by a magazine article.
The article I read was about Kyle McDonald’s “One Red Paperclip” story, a Canadian who in 2005/2006 traded up one single red paperclip for items “bigger and better” until he reached his goal for a house. He was successful, and 14 trades and one year from beginning his journey in North America, he held the keys to his new home in Canada.
The power of an idea!
I felt inspired because it was January 3rd 2011 when I read this story. It was only four days earlier, on New Year’s Eve, that I made the commitment to travel forward in 2011 with an adventurous way to teach “Lifestyle Design Principles” and how to create the life of your dreams using ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking.
For the last three years I have been enjoying my time to myself (and mostly traveling the world), as I’ve created a lifestyle of freedom with passive income streams and living my life on my terms. All based on these principles.
Kyle McDonald’s strategy was perfect. I wanted to do it. But on a global level.
I started the “Global Trading Game” in January (after reading an article on his story) – beginning my journey in Australia with a $3.75 packet of Tim Tams bought at the airport. I’ve since traveled around the world, and traded now in 5 different countries, with Trade 6 recently exchanged for a $46,994 “Wealth Creation” Package.
My end goal is to trade up for a position on Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic plane to experience sub-orbital space, as well as collectively raising US$1,000,000 for Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Unite charity.
A seat on Virgin Galactic has the value of $200,000. That’s my goal. I’m 25% of the way there, and achieved in as short a time as 15 weeks! I’m constantly in awe, and marvelling at the success of how quickly this game has evolved, and now is almost running on it’s own!
I’m about to board, and take flight… so I’ll update more again soon.
