Success Advice From The Thrillionaire Nik Halik

written by John Chow on May 3, 2013


Nik Halik is an Australian financial entrepreneur, motivational speaker and crazy ass adventurer. He’s climbed the highest mountains, drove to the bottom of the Titanic for lunch, and is funding his own way to the International Space Station ($30 million for a round trip).

I caught up with Nik in Fiji for lunch. We had a nice talk and I even got him to reveal his best success tips on video. You can watch the clip below. After lunch, we went jet skiing, where I found out that Nik jet skis like a mad man. Even the jet ski instructors thought he was crazy! Jet skiing with Nik is great, but I’m going to say no if he invites me to jump from 40,000 to land on top of a mountain.

Hi everyone,

it is simple and very powerful advice.
We always must plan. Planning is king. And we must do everything to achieve our plans. So don’t be just dreamer but we must plan and act.

If we stick to our goals and go step by step we will live a successful life.

Thank you.


Great DVD:

See you on top.

What a dynamic individual. Great advice too…..disconnect yourself from the system…great advice!

Disconnecting from the system is essentially the same as the Bible teaching of being ye in the world but not of it. It also reminds me of Morpheus teaching Neo to free his mind from the matrix… Great short yet insightful and inspiring video!

Interesting thanks, what a guy! Think I’ll read up more about him.

Shame you didn’t film the Jet skiing …. or did you?

I got videos of us on the jet skis. It’s not edited yet.

Waiting for it, that would be interesting.

John, guess there is always someone rich, more powerful than we imagine. Interestingly, those who seem to have made it big, are later superseded by even bigger guys.
So we need to be practical and think, hey what can we personally do to make the best of our own life.
Most of us will never be Warren Buffets ‘s, nor Nik Halik’s for that matter.
Jet skiing might be a lot easier.
Thanks for sending us your report from Fiji, enjoy your break.

Pretty hard to earn at least 10% from what you make. Pff….

Best regards from I. C. Daniel

Nik Halik is a cool dude and a good motivational figure to look to.

I guess the secret to success will be to create our own future, don’t depend on anybody else for our happiness or money!
