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.

The Psychology of Wealth

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

The Psychology of Wealth is always interested in the power of the mind to create an individual’s reality.

The power of your subconscious is said to be a million times more powerful than your conscious mind. While this ratio may differ according to different research, there is absolutely no doubting that a huge ratio exists.

I’ve seen too many instances where the subconscious mind gets blamed for underachievement because of all the conditioned programs it keeps running. But the power of the subconscious mind is fantastic news because you can use it to shape extraordinary achievement just as well as it can shape underachievement.

Within the subconscious mind is an automatic successing mechanism that’s reflexive and habitual. It keeps you safe from harm and it’s been guiding the survival and development of the human species for hundreds of thousands of years. You can learn to shape this very same successing mechanism in a way that has you automatically becoming more productive and achievement oriented over the next year or so.

The first principle of whatever you want over the next twelve months is “to think it into existence first”. And I’m pretty sure that this is a major point of breakdown for most people. If you don’t first create a mental reality of what you want, there is simply nothing for physical reality to catch up to. Physical reality moves slower than mental reality so if you don’t have an unconflicted belief or an unconflicted image in your mind’s reality, the physical reality of what you want can never materialise.

Whatever is important for you in 2012, thinking it into existence is the critical first step. For this to happen, you must begin to think differently about yourself. If not, through the power of your subconscious success mechanism, old programs, or “automatic default feedback mechanisms”, keep running the show.

If you’re interested in learning more, I’m giving a complimentary webinar on this topic next week to people enrolled in the Ten Steps To Wealth Program.  Encourage prosperity to visit you in multiples by starting your complimentary online eCourse at Make sure you start off 2012 with new enthusiasm for both economic and personal freedom.

I’ll be sending out an email with time and date to those on the program in a couple of days, so don’t miss out simply because you’re not registered. Remember that success has more to do with the money mastery process and the Psychology of Wealth than it has to do with the mediums of wealth.

The Psychology of Wealth

The Psychology of Wealth says that at every choice intersection there are always one of two choices to be made. The great humanist psychologist Abraham Maslow perhaps said it best when he identified that you can either take a step forward into growth or a step back into safety. So what do you normally do at choice intersections?

If you are serious about generating a financially free future for yourself, then it is mandatory to get your wealth psychology working for you instead of against you. To become financially free, you must get your money mind working for you by wrestling it away from the trappings of conditioning and enculturation. Money Mastery requires that you step forward into growth and while this will initially be uncomfortable, you must trust yourself and you must trust your learning.

At this very moment you only have one of two choices to make. Are you going to allow past conditioning, i.e. the words ‘I can’t’, deny you access to wealth? Or are you going to regain the potential to wealth you were born with? In both the long-term and short term, the choice you make determines your outcome. Are you going to continue to believe in and wish for wealth and yet do nothing about it? Sad but most people never consciously demand wealth for themselves, they unconsciously demand sameness and predictability.

Your choices are either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to growth. While you might have to get a few things organised first, but ultimately, the money mastery process helps you understand that there is no maybe, there is no later, there is no third choice. At this moment nothing else matters. It’s either yes or no and you will either join the many who surrender their opportunities to financial freedom, or you join the few who succeed at living their preferred lifestyles!

Please understand your potential is much greater than the words ‘I can’t’. When you learn, you turn ‘I can’t’ into ‘I can’, the psychology of wealth guarantees it.

When I meet people for the first time, the conversation generally works its way around to the question, “And what do you do?” Because the answer to such a question is usually couched in terms of describing your task, I politely reveal a little of what I do. As soon as I mention the concept of wealth creation the majority of people go into a state of denial as scepticism, cynicism, fear and doubt pour forth. By this time, I am pretty much just observing their process because they do not want to hear. Their emotions are too strong and their opinions too firmly set for any conversation to be useful. The processes of conventional wisdom encourage emotions of scepticism, cynicism, fear and doubt and there is an abundant supply of these in the language of most people. They are the very emotions of surrendered potential. There is no courage in scepticism, cynicism, fear and doubt.

There is only a contracting life of sameness, missing out and always having to settle for less. When you get the Psychology of Wealth working for you, you become unstopable.

The Psychology of Wealth

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

The Psychology of Wealth not only looks at people’s relationships with money and money mastery, it also looks at people’s relationships to time. Let me explain.

Most people think they have plenty of time in which to create wealth and financial freedom for themselves. However, unless you start immediately, you might be in danger of making a grave misjudgment. Let’s say you are 40 years of age right now: if you’re not 40, just work it off your age and I’m sure you’ll see what I mean. If you’re approximately 40, it’s only natural to assume you have another forty years left to get your financial house in order. Forty years, or 2080 weeks, seems like a generous amount of time, and so there will be a tendency towards thinking you have plenty. Let’s consider that you wish to stop working at age sixty. If this is the case you now only have twenty years, or 1040 weeks, left. But wait, there’s more!

If you are not constructively making effective financial changes at the moment you must subtract a third of your remaining years because they represent the amount of time you would normally spend sleeping. Unless you can make money in your sleep, you now only have thirteen and a third years of free time, or 696.8 weeks left in which to create wealth and financial freedom for yourself.

As most people like to play or relax on weekends and holidays, for now I will assume you are the same. Accordingly you must subtract a further third of the years between forty and retirement at age sixty because you have allocated this time to play and rest. Now you have the equivalent of six years and seven months or 350.48 weeks of free time left in which to switch on your wealth psychology, create wealth or gain money mastery.

Let’s assume you have a job but have not started on your wealth quest and you are not planning to immediately move in that direction. You must now subtract the amount of time you spend in your job going nowhere. If you work eight hours a day, five days a week for forty-eight weeks of the year, you need to subtract the equivalent of another four and a third years or 228.5 weeks, which means you now only have two and a third years, or 121.9 weeks of free time left in which to create your wealth. Normally this time is sandwiched between getting out of bed and preparing for work, driving to and from work or recovering after work. Ask yourself if you effectively use this time reading, attending courses and acquiring wealth knowledge. If not, then the 121.9 weeks of unallocated time is being used ineffectively and you are consuming it without positive effect.

Just as there is no mystery in being a financial underachiever, there is no mystery in the lack of effective use of time.

Intuitively people know they are running out of time, but they seldom ever take the next step and seriously learn what they need to learn in order for their desires to become their realities. If this is you, ask yourself what is holding you back; what is hindering you from learning? What thoughts are preventing you from taking control of your financial future? See if you can find some answers because they are vitally important if you are to overcome your present obstacles to financial freedom. The Psychology of Wealth is all about you and your journey to wealth, money mastery and the financial freedom you dream of: The Psychology of Wealth

The Money Mastery Process

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

The Money Mastery Process states that when you’re just starting out on your journey everything can seem a bit overwhelming. I found that the most important place for to start was to hold the space open with compassion for yourself and not try to force anything. If you hold compassion for you and for where you’ve been and what you’ve experienced, then you give yourself the best possible opportunity to allow your natural creativity to come through. Creativity needs space to percolate through all the clutter of daily living and negative self talk.

At the same time, the other thing you can do is to realise that because of life circumstances etc, we tend to place limits on ourselves with our belief systems and ideas of self worth and self esteem and it’s these limits that create our barriers to progress.

When I started out, everything was so confusing. Prior to deciding to be different, I had been a potter making pottery for 15 years. What did I know about finances? What did I know about personal development, or money mastery, or wealth creation, or business, or cash flow, or much else other than clay, pottery and kilns – basically nothing!!

So I started out by taking my time because I realised I was on a journey that involved reshaping my entire life and I didn’t want to rush anything or allow confusion of the lack of know how to get in my way. My logic was that if I tried to build a new future on my personal foundations as a potter, then I was not going to get very far. So I read and read and built a new foundation of understanding and knowledge before I launched into life changing enterprises.

So step one: place compassion into the space for you. Step two: allow your creative clarity to percolate to the surface, don’t force it. Step three: read three books for me please. 1: The Art of Fearless Living – Guy Finley. 2: Fifth Wave Leadership – Morris R. Shechtman. 3: The Big Leap. Gay Hendricks. The Money Mastery Process first requires the development of new thinking and new understanding before it can fully switch on as an effective process for you: The Money Mastery Process.

The Psychology of Wealth

The Psychology of Wealth: speaking of comfort zones, writer, poet, and contemporary thinker David La Chapelle describes the edges of comfort zones as ‘zones of turmoil’ where new possibilities explode in many dimensions. Any form of change brings with it a move from the certain to the uncertain; from the known to the unknown and the journey towards wealth creation is no different. It is why it’s often referred to as a hero’s journey because it involves moving from familiar to unfamiliar territory where old constructs and perceptions of accuracy begin to fall apart. And this is where courage is needed because when we seriously begin to change the conditions of our experiences, different outcomes occur. Old patterns and strategies simply stop working.

The edge of comfort zones is unfamiliar territory, it’s unknown and it’s scary. Comfort is familiar and familiarity leads to certainty, one of the most powerful of human motivators. People who are strongly motivated by certainty always default to the familiar. They resist change by maintaining old patterns. Familiarity is certainty and certainty generates feelings of reassurance, pleasure, dependability, resoluteness, endurance, satisfaction and knowing what is happening. It is the breakdown of familiarity and certainty that most people fear the most because it affects habitual patterns of reassurance located deep within their psyche.

In any process of change it takes courage to leave the familiar and travel towards the unknown, especially if the unknown involves opportunities for real financial freedom.

If you have a high need for certainty there is little possibility of change taking place because, by definition, change is an uncertain activity and it destabilises the way people choose to organise their lives. Any talk of major change will be seen as a threat, an attack on the familiar, and will be met with strong resistance. Certainty is about doing the same things over and over again because it is comforting and, whilst one might complain about their financial results, at least they are familiar and they can keep reproducing them.

There is no mystery in comfort, there are no adventures, no challenges beyond survival, no requirements beyond the known, no variety beyond misfortune, no newness beyond consistency, no progress beyond immediate gratification, and no demands beyond the daily immersion in ‘sameness’. Comfort zones generally represent the death of learning because learning takes you into mysterious places; it takes you to the edge of your known and is suggestive of undetermined outcomes. Although uncertainty leads to variety, uncertainty is scary for those who prefer sameness because it requires the successful navigation of the unfamiliar. Some people resist change at all costs: The Psychology of Wealth.
