Your Pathway To Prosperity Step #1

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

 ”Walking the Red Carpet To The Lifestyle You Deserve”.

Welcome to this post in The Ten Steps To Wealth series which is concentrating on the 11 steps I took before succeeding on my journey from dead flat broke to financial freedom with multiple millions…

I worked on each step… one per day for one hour per day, so that I could erase the hardship money mind conditioned into me during childhood and replace it with a new enterprise money mind…

The Pathway To Prosperity… is a brief description of each step so I hope you enjoy them. Even better, If you’re willing to employ them, I hope you get the same results I have.

The idea that we live in an age where it’s increasingly important to build your levels of prosperity and resilience cannot be understated.

It’s only by taking control of the outcomes that are important to you, that you can look forward to a time of great excitement and hope. The alternative is to leave your future in the hands of politicians and government decision makers. It’s something I fear most people will do.

But not you I hope!

Greetings… My name is Paul counsel

If you’ve read anything of my story, you’ll know that at the age of 40…

I had several part time jobs that didn’t pay well…

And I was dead flat broke

However… By my 44th birthday I was a millionaire… and I now teach people how to achieve similar results.

Even though I became financially successful, it’s important to understand that my success didn’t come overnight… it came about because I worked on it daily for about an hour…

I worked on “one” step at a time and when I had finished the 11 steps I went back to the beginning and refined everything I had done over and over again.

I know you can achieve similar outcomes because I’ve seen so many people do it before you… I’ve been supporting and mentoring people for nearly 16 years now so I know it’s possible.

If you leave your future in the hands of politicians and government decision makers… you just have to keep accepting what turns up… so I hope you don’t follow this strategy.

Each step on the Pathway To Prosperity is designed to give you quick access to a torrent of possibility and joy in your life.

Below is a brief summary of step #1 along the Pathway To Prosperity… the step by step process to more time… more money… & more choice…

Step # 1 begins with Walking the Red Carpet to the lifestyle you deserve… is where you need to start.

Prosperity begins by shifting your thinking into what’s truly possible. The eleven steps lay out the most effective pathway to take in order to save you enormous amounts of money, and wasted time.

No longer will you feel confused or uncertain about being able to get the results you want at your deepest levels of possibility.

Napoleon Hill said, “If you are one of those people who believe hard work and honesty alone bring riches, perish the thought, because it’s not true. “Riches, when they come in huge quantities, are never the result of hard work. Riches come, if they come at all, in response to definite demands based upon the operation of definite principles, and not by chance or luck.”

So let’s start this first step with a definite principle… “Prosperity must be created in your mind first before it can be created in reality”.

What if you could produce your own Hollywood block buster prosperity movie… what would it look like?

What if you could write the script and play the starring role in economic and personal freedom instead of the consumption role that most people play from day to day.

Society teaches you to be a worker and, through its financial education, it locks you into three “money” mindsets of earn, spend and borrow. When you do what society teaches you, you’re locked into patterns of never having enough time, money or freedom.

What if you could exit your old money movie and walk the red carpet into a prosperity lifestyle purposely designed exactly the way you want it? Well you can… you can start by designing your new mind movie script mentioned above.

This is exactly what the Pathway To Prosperity is all about.

If you want to experience economic and personal freedom you must develop an inner mind movie that allows you to achieve economic and personal freedom.

This means changing your current money code.

If you can’t do this, you’re in danger of remaining with the status quo’s mind blocks. Mark Twain said it best, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”

In order to walk the Pathway To Prosperity, you must design your way onto it.

Over the next day or so,  take half an hour to write or draw a two minute mind movie of the sorts of prosperity you want to experience.

Detail your movie with six scenes… what life is like now… a chance meeting… the things you learned… the results you achieve… what you now share with others…  and how this makes you feel…

Detail each scene with as much emotion as you can without overcrowding it.

When I watch your movie, I need to be crystal clear on what you’re experiencing.

Stay tuned for the next post in The Ten Steps To Wealth series which concentrates on Prosperity Step #2

See you there

The Importance Of Mentoring

Saturday, August 24th, 2013

“Experience Productive Benefits, Recurring Value And Increasing Profits… Through One On One Personalised Mentoring Aimed At Delivering Important Outcomes.”

The great family therapist Virginia Satir, once said to the co-creator of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Richard Bandler, “You know, Richard, most people think the will to survive is the strongest instinct in human beings, but it isn’t. The strongest instinct is to keep things familiar” (Source: Make Your Life Great.)

Evolutionary speaking, our brain has a design principle that makes extraordinary change or success difficult for most people. Our brain is designed to act on what it observes, rather than what it doesn’t observe. It acts on reoccurring thoughts rather than new possibilities.

The brain’s design preference for acting on what is already familiar to it, is the single most important factor in why you often can’t effectively solve the challenges you’re facing.

Your reoccurring reality is the result of what your brain notices. But the solutions you need to the challenges you face are always found outside what your brain consistently notices.

It’s why the world’s greatest teams and most successful individuals in any given context engage coaches and mentors. They know that success is found outside what their brain habitually notices… Outside their “familiars”.

The word familiar comes from the 14th C Old French word famelier meaning “intimate, very friendly, on a family footing,” and from the Latin word familiaris which means “domestic, of a household” and “familiar, intimate, and friendly”.

Solutions are often located outside your particular frame of reference… ‘Outside’ what is already familiar to you. They’re found in information and strategies that your brain normally doesn’t notice and this is where mentors become extremely valuable to the outcomes you seek.

Extraordinary success is not something that requires seemingly super human qualities. Nor is it something that is beyond the reach of anyone who wants to tap into their true potential. Simply stated, extraordinary success is achieved through a process of turning creative ideas into sustained behaviours.

Most people generate ideas and dreams but what’s often missing is sustained determination and an ability to remain focused on attending to the behaviours and actions necessary for the realisation of those dreams.

Unquestionably, the common benefits enjoyed by all mentoring clients are that they feel safe to explore territory, strategies, opportunities and information outside their existing familiars.

This leads to exponential increases in self confidence, self ability, self efficacy, self awareness and personal control. In turn, this saves you time, money and costly mistakes.

The ultimate purpose of mentorship is to develop your (as yet) unrealised potential so that life is experienced as a daring adventure of expansion and sustainable achievement. It helps get your results off “pause” and back on “fast forward”.

It’s the Consumption Code that’s most familiar in terms of money results and it’s what keeps dragging you back into your familiars. Freedom, especially in the form of financial freedom, is only possible from productive Enterprise Code change.

Love for you to share your thoughts on this.

Mastery External Feedback

Friday, July 12th, 2013

“Liberate What’s Holding You Back… With The Money Mastery Blueprint”

When undertaking a journey of change, especially when you’re trying to improve your results around money, the importance of using Mastery External Feedback is an absolute must and cannot be overstated.

Just click on the video for a few ideas in this regard.

The older I get the more intolerant I become of sameness. I use to accept it once and just get on with my business but now I no longer accept it. If I have to shake people out of sameness and into freedom, then I’ll do it

I know that this is your time to feel… to grow… to be free.

So have you made your decision to finally start breathing so that you can live your life fully?

Have you finally got to that point where you’re no longer prepared to wait for people, especially those who are so stuck they’re just holding you back?

If you’re holding yourself back, or you’re allowing others to hold you back, you can’t love, live or breath… you can’t feel alive, you can only feel numb because numb allows you to survive… but not grow.

Some time ago, I decided to take control of who I share my energy and time with. I no longer wanted to allow people into my inner sanctum that didn’t contribute to growth. It’s a simple test. Do they tend to drain my ENERGY or do they tend to give me ENERGY?

Great people ENERGISE… it’s as simple as that. So from now on, start seeking out people that energise you and give you hope and love and connection and ideas and vitality. Pull the plug on anything that drains you if you are in a position to do so.

In a ‘time stressed’, ‘plugged in’ and overloaded world of mediocrity, where do people connect with more energising thoughts, along with fertile, challenging and coherent narratives?

Where do people access expanding ideas and supportive environments aimed at stretching and growing the realisation of greater potential?

My dream is a simple one. It’s of a world where people truly live, truly share and truly matter. It’s a world where people experience freedom from the pressures of financial stress… a world where people are their own masters so they can play more and work less.

How about we all get together and develop an environment that ignites innovation, imagination and creativity and fires up the entrepreneurial genius in us all?

You can see what I’m doing about building such a community through my Money Mastery Blueprint.

But first I’ve got to get you to the point of financial freedom so that you have the “space” to grow, transform and move forward.

Why Not Financial Freedom?

Friday, March 15th, 2013

“Why Keep Putting Up With Financial Distress When Financial Freedom Is Now More Available Than Ever Before?”

It only ever takes a decision to change.

In my mind, a true decision is only ever made when you no longer fear the consequences of that decision. If you fear the consequences, you’ll never make a true decision.

What you’re left with is a want, or need, or desire, or wish, or an aspiration but if you never make a decision to go after what you want… you’ll never get it.

While needs, desires, wishes, ants and aspirations remain in place… so to will financial distress.

Read this remarkable story of how a time starved couple with seven children made a “decision” to go after the lifestyle they wanted so that they could have the freedom they wanted.

It’s an inspiring story of never letting go of your ultimate dream. Read it here…

“The Importance Of Focus”

If you’ve been working your way through The Ten Steps To Wealth eCourse, I hope things are starting to come together for you, BUT… I also realise there’s so much to learn isn’t there.

The secret to success is “not to give up” and I know this is easier said than done.

I was speaking to a person who I’ve been mentoring for a month or so now and it was an interesting conversation.

He’s someone who has been up in the millions of dollars of earnings but has always achieved these results via the “corporate” arena.

A year or so ago, he was so fed up with the back stabbing, the unfeeling ruthlessness and the lack of real care for clients that he decided to sever his ties with the corporate world and start out on his own entrepreneurial pathway.

Along with thousands of work from home moms, online marketers and people who want to make more money in an entrepreneurial way, he found the challenge of moving away from a structured environment a little daunting at first.

His current challenge is that he’s now finding a host of opportunities, demands, requests for help and distractions that are competing for his attention. As a result, he hasn’t progressed very far on his own entrepreneurial pathway… and now he’s starting to worry a bit about his cash flow, or lack of it I should say.

Anyway, he’s reached out for a bit of support now and it won’t be long before we transform his money results into results he’s happy with.

The conversation we were having was centred on the notion of “Self Efficacy” and I explained that the secret to success that most people miss, it’s also the secret that “THE SECRET” missed…

It’s the secret to all manifestation, all productiveness, all Olympic medals, all winning teams, all stellar relationships, all forms of economic and personal freedom, all political wins and I could go on and on…

In its simplest form, the secret to getting more of what you want and less of what you don’t want is “Attention to Intention“.

This is a critical point and one that’s often missed because “circumstance” seems to always have you focused in different directions.

There is heaps of scientific research on this which I won’t bore you with but suffice to say that relative to your intention, everything else is a distraction… The more distraction there is, the less you get of what you truly want.

Once you’ve been through The Ten Steps Program, the most critical lesson I’d like you to get from everything you’ve read is the regaining of your ‘attending qualities to intention’.

Once you’re pretty clear on what these qualities are, I want to help you build higher levels of “Self Efficacy”.

I’m going to write more about Self Efficacy in a different post but if you’d like to do some further reading on this topic, you can click to a Self Efficacy article on…

Don’t worry too much about the jargon… we’ll work our way through so that it makes real sense.

Until then, stay on track and I hope you enjoy the rest of the articles on The Ten Steps To Wealth.

Don’t forget to send in questions if you have any

Update: Lots of people sent in questions for answering during our live Q&A session and here is a response from Wendy… “Paul yes the answers made sense.  I can see that setting smaller goals and succeeding with these will help build my confidence in being successful. I appreciated the feedback on working with suppliers and will give that a go. It was generally just a fantastic hour, as I found the information on the other questions useful too.”

The next Q&A is coming up shortly so if you have questions you would like answers to, send them in through The Ten Steps To Wealth website. You’ll be given instructions as soon as you register.
