About Pádraic

Welcome to my website. I’m Pádraic Ó Máille.

My goal is to make you richer.

Richer mentally. Richer physically. Richer financially.

Why bother, you may well ask?

Well in Ireland alone, with a population of only 4 million, 400,000 people are on
anti-depressants, with the number projected to rise to 600,000 by 2020.

In America, as many as 50% of the population are obese.

Globally, 70% of the population want to be in business for themselves,
blissfully unaware that 80% of those who start a business will be insolvent
within five years.

There you have it. The three critical challenges of our times. As John Gray so
eloquently put it ‘In our minds we’re accumulating stress. In our bodies we’re accumulating fat. And in our businesses we’re accumulating debt’.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

What if I were to reveal to you a mindset, a formula, a habit – that can transform
your attitude, your vitality and your finances!
I will. It’s called SMACHT.

SMACHT is the ancient Irish word for discipline. And when you think about,
every great achievement you ever accomplished was preceded by discipline.

Every baby that ever fell dozens of times before they eventually walked displayed
SMACHT. Every marathon runner who ever completed a marathon had the SMACHT to train and prepare for the event. Every business person who ever created a successful business oozed SMACHT in the light of the countless inevitable obstacles.

You can achieve every goal you ever aspire to if you have sufficient SMACHT to
follow it through. As Jim Rohn said ‘Discipline is the bridge between aspiration and accomplishment’.

Why then, if the solution to all our significant woes seems so simple do so many
people fail to lead happy, healthy and wealthy lives?

The reason is that we get discouraged by the thought of ‘perpetual discipline’. We
mistakenly confuse short term pain with perpetual pain.

The great secret in SMACHT is that you only ever have to persist with discipline
until it becomes habit. Once you have internalised good habits into your neurocircuitry
you will carry them out effortlessly and automatically without any association with

That’s why we created SMACHT. SMACHT is a lot more than a word.

It’s a philosophy – a way of working and living.

It’s a series of training courses that motivate, educate and hold you accountable.

It’s a community of business people who have successfully transformed their
businesses and lives and who are more than willing to motivate you to do the same.

It’s, although I say it myself, a seriously uplifting free blog that you can use to
accomplish greatness on a weekly basis.
