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

Your Pathway To Prosperity

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

“How To Achieve Prosperity And Have More Fun, Excitement, Free Time And Financial Independence. Discover… The Pathway To Prosperity”

Not so many years ago, I was far from anything that could be described as financially thriving. In fact, I was dead flat broke, spent more nights in a car than a house and couldn’t see any way out of my predicament.

When I finally reached a point of enough’s enough… I decided to create the rest of my life experience from a state of freedom rather than a state of incarceration.

So I set out on a journey to discover The Pathway To Prosperity.

It can be yours to if you want it…

A few years after I started this journey, I successfully transformed myself from being a dead flat broke potter to living the sort of prosperity and good fortune that I wish everyone could experience.

In this next series of blog posts, I’ll describe the steps I took to turn my misfortune into good fortune.

But before I do this, let me say something about the nature of society and how it prevents you from living a prosperous lifestyle.

You could be forgiven for thinking that mechanisms within society have single minded focus on economic prosperity. There’s nothing intrinsically wrong with this but… it often competes negatively with other aspects of prosperity such as health, happiness, thriving, and flourishing in your chosen lifestyle.

In today’s economic climate, ever increasing costs require you to give up more and more life hours for yourself so that you can offer them to work and its labour demands.

At the same time, the subtle but ever present mass marketing demands require you to spend more and more of your hard earned money on consumption goods that depreciate in value.

Prosperity is described as a state of flourishing, thriving, and good fortune; a state that encompasses financial freedom, happiness, fulfilment and optimal wellness.

The more hours you’re forced to give up, the more you’re driven away from your lifestyle preferences. This results in more stress but less flourishing, thriving, prosperity and good fortune.

The timeliness of Pathway To Prosperity is no coincidence. With the increased stressors of modern living, achieving more prosperity in your lifestyle is an absolute must do if more happiness is important.

You can begin with a simple change in mindset… that’s what I did. And the moment I did this, I took my first step towards an extraordinary life.

That’s the key…

If you’re like most people you’ve been conditioned to attempt to create freedom and prosperity from the position of servitude to large amounts of debt.

This is lunacy and it never works. Witness the millions of unhappy people who never experience more time… more money… or even get close to more freedom.

Instead of thriving and experiencing good fortune, they experience, less time… less money… and less freedom.

If you’d like to turn these outcomes upside down, this is exactly what the Pathway To Prosperity will show you how to do.

Finally, you can say goodbye to your old results and achieve prosperity and freedom. I know this to be true because I’ve witnessed thousands of people achieve similar results for themselves.

Does it take time? Sure it does. But you never need to do more than just one step at a time. All you need is a strong determination to succeed and I’ll give you the map that I and so many others have used for ourselves.

The sad thing is that most people are closer to freedom and prosperity than they realise but, because they’re so busy, they never give themselves enough time to see these possibilities for themselves.

They’ve become so trapped in their “daily routines” that they can’t see the wood through the trees.

The Pathway To Prosperity is my proven curriculum of 11 steps that I’ve been teaching people in one form or another since 2003. Each step is underpinned on incredibly powerful information revealed by cutting edge discoveries into the neuroscience and psychology of abundance and prosperity.

They encourage you to achieve extraordinary results in every area of your life… 

The Pathway To Prosperity is designed to ensure you end the tug-of-war between your desire for more and your restrictions of time and choice. Just choose an important outcome you want for yourself and allow me to support you in attaining that outcome.

Each step acts powerfully in every aspect of life you choose:

  • from weight loss to more connected relationships
  • from being lost in a sea of sameness to finding your true purpose in life
  • from experiences of isolation to finding a group of like minded people to connect with
  • from the servitude of debt to lucrative finances and cash flow
  • from societal servitude to the freedom of physical and emotional resilience

Over the next series of blogs, I’ll post a synopsis of each of the 11 proven steps along the Pathway To Prosperity.

By taking deliberate action on each one, what you’ll begin to experience on a daily basis will directly result from the processes you learn.

Each of the steps are exactly the same steps I took to recondition my mind so that I could transform myself from being a dead flat broke potter to someone who now enjoys financial prosperity along with good fortune and a flourishing and thriving lifestyle.

Now it’s your turn to move from a life of struggle to an inspiring, creative, abundant and productive life of freedom.

I’ll post each of the steps in subsequent posts

What Is Success And How Is It Achieved?

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

“Does Hard Work Lead To Success?”

At a recent Teen Award Ceremony in the US, actor Ashton Kutcher started a short speech by saying, “First of all, I don’t have a career without you guys.  I don’t get to do anything without you guys.”

The acknowledgement of the other half of  “success” was an interesting opening comment I thought.

The “other half” it seems, is something that’s often missing in any description of what success is.

Kutcher went on to say that in his experience “opportunity” looks like hard work. He then described a number of low skill jobs he worked in during his late teens and early twenties… noting especially that he had never had a job in his life that he was “better than”.

Yet how many people do you know who do the exact opposite? The most graphic of these are people who prefer the dole rather than taking on jobs they perceive they’re better than. Of course this is not an across the board thing as many people would take on any job if only they could get one.

The point I’m making though is that when people ask me how to become wealthy, depending on their current circumstances in life, I often start by saying… “Get a job”. Any job. The reason behing me saying this is because they could then use the “money” to undertake the next stage of their learning. The replies that shock me the most come from an attitude implying that they are much bigger than just any job.

When I was starting out on my journey to financial freedom, I worked four part time jobs. At one job I was paid $15 per day wrecking houses. (But the real value in this job was what I learned. It allowed me renovate houses and acquire second hand materials which I could then renovate and reuse. This enabled me to create my first $100,000 in asset value within 6 months).

The reason for 4 part time jobs, instead of one secure full time job, was so that I could work more hours and more days which meant that I earned more money than one full time job. I could then apply this money to learning the important lessons I needed to learn. In fifteen years of teaching people how to become wealthy, I’ve never met anyone who was willing to start this way. That they are still not financially successful is telling.

Another idea Kutcher promoted in his talk was the idea of being “sexy” which he described as “being smart… thoughtful and generous”.

A third offering came as a result of remembering something Steve Jobs often talked about. Jobs observed that as we grow up, enculturation teaches us that the world is the way it is and that we should live our lives inside this world. We’re told to follow the rules, not get into trouble, get a good education, get a good job, make some money, become a good consumer, get married, have a family and so on as the rest of the story goes.

The point he was making is that life is much bigger than Enculturation’s Plan for the masses. The idea that life doesn’t have to look like a life on the “work/stress, not enough time, not enough money treadmill” is foreign to most people. Instead of building a life experienced around the idea of financial freedom,  generation after generation fall into the trap of having a life based on the consumption code and servitude, rather than purposefully building a life based on the enterprise code and freedom.

While I’m not sure how much of his own wisdom Kutcher was sharing, as opposed to the wisdom of Steve Jobs given the film he’s just made… none the less, it’s hard to fault the wisdom itself.

While hard work may indeed lead to success, it is not the cause of success itself. One of the reasons for this is that success, in any endeavour, does not follow the “cause and effect” principle. Success is actually an “emergent”. No matter how hard you try, something else has to provide the spark…

The concept of “emergence” has been around since the time of Aristotle but the term emergent was coined in 1875 by pioneer psychologist G. H. Lewes who said that… “Every resultant is either a sum or a difference of co-operant forces; their sum, when their directions are the same — their difference, when their directions are contrary.”

As an emergent, success unfolds as a result of a series of effective moment-by-moment decisions made from a large number of options available every time you need to make a choice.

Instead of every day placing themselves in positions where an emergent process can happen, most people continue to place themselves into positions where servitude, predictability, and sameness always happen.

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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxkw5bMovDA

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.

Entrepreneurial success

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

“Success And The Emergence Of The Entrepreneur”

I’ve always looked upon entrepreneurial success as an “emergent” experience rather than something that follows the law of “cause and effect”.

The concept of “emergence” has been around since the time of Aristotle but the term emergent was coined in 1875 by pioneer psychologist G. H. Lewes who said that… “Every resultant is either a sum or a difference of co-operant forces; their sum, when their directions are the same — their difference, when their directions are contrary.”

As an emergent, entrepreneurialism unfolds as a result of a series of effective moment-by-moment decisions made from a large number of options available every time you have to make a choice.

It’s the spark of bringing together “operant forces” that most people miss in their attempt to become a successful entrepreneur.

Success emerges from the purposeful application of episodic rather than semantic knowledge. It emerges as you learn from each new step and each new learning experience.

The better your results, the broader your perspectives and the more value you bring to the experience of being an entrepreneur and the experiences you deliver to pleased customers.

Having one customer sing your praises to the “right” person could literally triple your business over night. If every day you plan for this to happen, one day it will.

As an emergent, entrepreneurial success is achieved through the continual refinement of experiences gained over time.

When you refine these experiences in the presence of mastery external feedback, your journey to achievement is that much more likely.

That’s why the most successful people in the world seek out the best mentors and coaches they can find.

You’ll never see a world class golfer without a caddy by their side, nor a world class athlete without a coach, or world class boxers without corner people, or world class business people without mentors.

Sometimes, becoming a successful entrepreneur means getting into the energy orbit of people who already have the type of success you desire for yourself. And while this doesn’t “guarantee” your success, it’s the fastest way to “spark” your success.
