Mastery External Feedback

“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.

How Many Times Will It Take?

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

“How Many Times Will It Take You To Develop The Courage To Be Free?”

How many times have you said to yourself something like you wanted more time, more money and more freedom… but never acted on it?

Have you ever thought about the  courage it takes to gain access to more time and more freedom?

Have you ever thought about the courage it takes to give up the psychological and emotional dialogue you use to keep yourself locked in your comfort zone?

Courage means you have to give up your doubt, your disbelief, your lack of confidence, your distrust, your scepticism, your excuses, your shame, your blame, your denial and all the other crutches that keep you from realising the very things you say you want… but never go after.

When you have the courage to turn your wants into “musts”… you become unstoppable.

85% of millionaires are “self made” through courage.

If you begin your journey with courage, myself, and others like me, will be there to support you every step of the way.

But we cannot give you our courage because we used it on our own journeys. But we can give you our strength and our support.

Do you have the courage to be free?

Read this inspiring story of a husband and wife team who developed the courage to be free.

Is Your Potential Greater Than You’re Allowing?

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

“Potential = More Time… Better Profits… Greater Freedom”

Patty Hansen tells the story of two seeds that lay side-by-side in the fertile, spring soil. The first seed said, “I want to grow! I want to send down my roots deep into the soil beneath me and thrust my sprouts through the earth’s crust before me… I want to unfurl my tender buds like banners to announce the arrival of spring… I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the blessing of the morning dew on my petals!” And so it grew.

The second seed said, “I’m afraid. If I send my roots into the ground below, I don’t know what I’ll encounter in the dark. If I push my way through the hard soil above me I may damage my delicate sprouts… What if I let my buds open and a snail tries to eat them? And if I were to open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. No, it’s much better for me to wait until it’s safe.” And so it waited.

“A chook came scratching around for food in the early spring ground. It found the waiting seed and promptly ate it. Those of us who refuse to risk and grow get swallowed up by life.”

The Ten Steps To Wealth maintains that at some point youmay have expressed a desire to be wealthy and financially free. But is it really wealth you want, or has it more to do with experiencing the products of wealth?

In other words,  is it the “freedom of lifestyle” that independent wealth can provide you with?

If you’re like most people, you’ll be feeling a desire to better support those who are important to you. it might also be a desire to live a life of choice, a desire to feel secure, a desire to experience peace of mind, a desire to live according to your own sense of time, a desire to be free of the everyday constraints, especially those of jobs. You might also express a desire to feel a sense of achievement and a desire to experience greater happiness.

While you might desire these things, chances are that you will not experience them to any degree unless you undertake the necessary changes to make these experiences a reality for you. If you’re like most people, your programming and conditioning will continue to lead you in a different direction.

The mechanics of wealth are relatively simple, however becoming wealthy is a skill that needs to be developed over time.While most people know what they should be doing, the point is that they don’t do it.

They don’t grow to feel the warmth of the sun so much as they stay with in the confines of comfort zones and remain below ground… below thier potential.

From an early age, society teaches you to surrender your potential to a life of financial freedom so that you can successfully follow the “conditioned life” that society wants you to experience.

Perhaps you’re surviving more comfortably than others but have you really achieved the potential you were born with? Those who achieve their potential know and live the freedom of abundance. But those who don’t, constantly live with the stresses of not being able to get off the “work/stress, not enough time, not enough money treadmill”.

If you are one of those people who always wanted to be wealthy but were a little afraid of doing something about it, then here’s your chance to make a brand new start by enrolling in my complimentary The Ten Steps To Wealth eCourse!

It’s a New Year, a new decade, a new century. Make it a new beginning. Make a conscious decision to stop living beneath your true potential.

Make a conscious decision to stop surrendering yourself to conventional wisdom. Make a conscious decision to stop doing as you have always done.  Make a conscious decision to start doing something about the experiences you want rather than just wishing for them.

Make a conscious decision to change your future and achieve a life of financial independence, security, freedom and choice! Make a conscious decision to plant yourself in a fertile environment of learning and mentoring so that you can reach up and grow.

Don’t wake up in ten years time and think of what might have been. You’re now at the beginning of an exciting journey towards reclaiming your lost potential.

So stand up and reclaim it… Reclaim your confidence, reclaim your present, reclaim the potential you were born with and reclaim your future.

Victor Frankl maintains that the greatest distinction between humans and animals is the freedom to choose. As humans, “We are totally responsible for our own lives. Our behaviour is a function of our decisions, not our conditions. We have the initiative and the responsibility to make things happen.”

 That’s it really, wealth is about making things happen!

Enjoy your journey on The Ten Steps To Wealth and I’ll be there to support you all the way. Click Here

The Money Mastery Process

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

The Money Mastery Process makes you aware of the self defeating behaviours and conditioned reflexes you may unconsciously be anchored to and how you might begin collapsing self imposed limits to success, prosperity and financial freedom. It’s especially important to advance your skills during times of economic contraction and to learn what you must learn in order to gain more security and confidence in the uncertain times ahead.

Through the use of classical conditioning, the famous Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov came to understand conditioned reflexes as he experimented with feeding dogs at the same time as he rang a bell. Pavlov sounded a bell as the animals began to salivate at the sight of food. After repeated parings of the bell and the food, Pavlov was able to bring forth salivation in the dogs just by ringing the bell alone.

In the same way, emotional, physical or mental conditioned reflexes form through responses to repeated stimuli that trigger certain reflex behaviours, thoughts or emotions in you.

In other words, if something triggers you often enough, over time, you’ll tend to respond to what’s triggering you in the same way. This is what is meant by an anchor, you’re now anchored to conditioned reflexes to certain triggering stimuli.

Over time, your conditioned reflexes hold you in one place, the place of sameness for example.

It’s important to understand the concept of anchoring and classical conditioning from the stand point of your future and whether or not you can break from your past. When thinking about the time, effort and energy necessary for getting out of your comfort zone and moving towards achievement, the internal reference point for most people will be an automatic mix of reflexive feelings and habits.

All habits feel normal and when you use them as reference points, anything outside what feels normal will feel abnormal. Using anything that feels normal as an internal reference point will not get you the results you’re looking for because by definition anything outside normal will go against what you’re internally anchored to.

When you have strong limits in place, self limiting behaviour feels normal and, because it feels normal, it’s difficult to change.

To enjoy more economic freedom and Money Mastery, its necessary to consider the reflexive anchors you may be conditioned to and how they might be holding you back from achieving the very things you wish for yourself.

If you’d like to make a start on dissolving your conditioned reflexes, the free online eCourse titles The Ten Steps To Wealth is a terrific place to start. Hope to see you there.

How To Avoid The Dangers Of The Slow Motion Suicide Of An Economy Being FED To The Termites…

Your wealth is being crippled by inflation and the GREED of those who are drunk on power and profits.

Something really SCARY is happening and now millions of people all around the world are starting to wake up to the economic and personal DANGERS of 2012 and beyond. Daniel Akst notes that, “Half of all deaths in America come from overeating, smoking, drinking too much, failing to exercise and other deadly behaviours that we indulge against our own better judgment. Why are we on a campaign of slow- motion suicide?”

Over the past decade, few people have been able to resist borrowing for houses, borrowing for cars, borrowing for holidays, borrowing for education and borrowing for basically anything they can consume. As a result, not only is the idea of retirement becoming a thing of the past, it’s now a pipe dream for millions of people.

Oscar Wilde said, “I can resist everything except temptation.” Now, the consequences of borrowing’s temptations are coming back to bite with vengeance. Today, the spend rate in all areas of government and the population is so high that if Americans were taxed 100% of every dollar they earned, the American Government still couldn’t balance their budget.

Currently, 43% of Americans have less than $10,000 for retirement and the figures are not that much different for Australians. When the greatest economy in the world collapses, in a few years from now, retirement will NOT be an option.

In 1970, Walt Kelly, through his cartoon character Pogo, said, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” Not only have we become the enemy for each other, we’ve allowed our political and economic leaders to get away with what has been described as one of the world’s greatest charades of all time. And because of this, we now have to pay more for our utilities, more for petrol, more for food, more in taxes and more for our daily bread. All this while bureaucrats, politicians and bankers celebrate huge pay increases and bonuses.

Right now, the economy is like a financial house that’s full or termites and the only response from Governments all over the world is to print more money so they can wallpaper over the damage and pretend it’s not there. The more money that’s printed, the more money the Government is confiscating from your purse, your bank account, your child, your labour, your retirement and your future. Every new dollar of fiat currency that’s printed causes inflation and inflation merely prolongs problems, it doesn’t fix them.

The only way to survive the coming crunch decade is through education, learning and new skills development… You can begin with The Ten Steps To Wealth through the following link.

The Money Mastery Process

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

Many people learn the Money Mastery Process because they want to be more personally in control of how they generate their income and not be so dependent on jobs and the demands of others. They also want to generate more passive income rather than continue to rely on active income through the exchange of labour.

So they take the next step in their learning curve, become an active player and learn the finer points of the Money Mastery Process.

If you want to change the way you earn your income so that what comes into your life enters more through passive means than active means, learning to do things differently can quickly change things around for you. Active income is connected to job servitude and financial habits that are lacking in alternate knowledge.

In the normal course of events, active income has you working between 154 and 172 days per year before you start putting the first dollar in your own pocket. Then, if you’re like most people you work for the rest of the year just trying to keep your head above the financial high tide mark but you never achieve financial freedom.

If you are no better off at the end of the year than you are at the beginning of the year, imagine how much better off you would be if you concentrated your efforts on learning how to control things for yourself rather than remain controlled by a system which encourages surrendered potential.

We can learn so much from nature if only we choose to look and learn. Nature shows us that there’s a season for planting, a season for growing, a season for harvesting and a season for sitting back and enjoying the fruits of your labour. Nature does not plant, grow, harvest and rest all in the same season. And yet that’s what most people are taught to do.

The system says, “Speed up the seasons and get it all over and done with in the space of seven days. Let’s plant, grow, harvest and rest during Monday to Sunday so that you can start the whole process over again and get nowhere.”

You go to work and plant Monday and Tuesday, grow what you’ve sewn on Wednesday, and Thursday harvest your crop on Friday and sit back and spend your harvest on Saturday and Sunday. You then repeat this cycle over and over again until one workweek turns into one work month, which turns into one work year.

You then have your annual holidays where you hope and wish for things to be better next year. But next year didn’t turn out to be any better than last year. Why is this? Most people don’t live an effective life of sixty, seventy or eighty years. They live a one year life which gets repeated sixty, seventy or eighty times.

If this repetitive trap of continually chasing your economic tail resembles the cycle you currently find yourself, remember that it’s conventional wisdom that has encouraged you to undertake this process. If you wish to progress from here and become a player so that you can control your own destination then every opportunity for you to do so is already available. All you have to do is commit yourself to a learning process so that you can start making more informed financial decisions. Engage in the Money Mastery Process today if financial freedom and independence is important to you.
