Success For Life
Friday, April 23 2021

One of my biggest student "pet peeve" questions I get is this one:

"What should I do -- what should I invest in -- to make fast money?"

My answer?

"I don't know!  How the hell should I know what you should do?"  I know what I want to do and what interests ME...but I know NONE of those things about anybody else.

It's this lack of responsibility of taking life by the horns and making decisions that really gets under my skin.

And it's only going to get worse with our next generation.

I think everybody who knows me knows that I have a 12-year-old daughter.  I'm pretty strict on her and I expect her to maintain a much greater level of responsibility than most people would for a 12-year-old.

Why do I do this?

Because in order for you to be "great" at anything, you only have to be 10% better than everyone else.

Considering the sea of near-deadbeats that are coming up through grade school, junior high and high school right now...even taking responsibility to be on time to school is 10% greater than what most kids would attempt to do on their own.

Pretty sad.

Unfortunately, my generation -- the Gen Xers -- are teaching Gen Ys some pretty freakin' bad habits that will ultimately bite them in the ass one day.  Some of these Gen Xers think that being "more relaxed" and "laid back" with their kids (than their parents obviously were with them) is better somehow.

Well...better in the sense that if they want a pot-smoking video-game-playing loser dwelling in their basement at the age of 53, then I guess these Gen Xers are on the right path.

Except I don't want that with my daughter.

My parents were hippies from the 60s.  I grew up as a vegetarian with a religion called Kriya Yoga.  They wanted to be so far from "status quo" as possible that it's surprising I have any bearings in the world of capitalism.  (I guess a cat always lands on her feet!)

I think the only thing that gave me a radar for entrepreneurialism was my dad who always kept hustling.  He was always a small business owner, did fairly well for a middle-class breadwinner, and was always working.

And that's exactly what my daughter gets to see.

Just yesterday she said, "Mom, thank you for working so hard for me."

Yes!  It's sinking in!!

The best thing about all of these little things I have her do is not that she does them perfectly each time (because she does) but that she understands a sense of responsibility and commitment to "processes" in general.

I feel like most people have difficulty in finding their way through life financially (and in many other ways).  You can't blame your parents...even if it's really their fault.  You now have to take responsibility yourself.  Time to put your big kid pants on and grow up.

Just like I teach my daughter the psychology behind taking care of herself, I teach my students the exact same valuable lessons they can immediately use to change their lives.

Your only "hump" to get over is your mind and whether you'll pull the trigger (or not).  That's the part I cannot do for you.  All I can do is give you the strategies and techniques in the most precise step-by-step fashion and it's up to you to follow it.

As you know, I've recently finished my Key West Retreat where I did a two-day Money Funnel Traffic Workshop that was pretty powerful.

And now I'm doing something else that's EVEN MORE POWERFUL AND PROFITABLE than that!

It's amazing what you discover as you trek along in this journey we call a "lifetime on earth." While most of this journey can seem frustrating, once you get the hang of a couple of "secret techniques" to alter your future, you can understand how to maneuver a better life experience for yourself.

One of the most powerful strategies I've learned...then learned again recently is the power of letting go.

Many of you know that I went through a painful divorce years.  It was not a marriage I wanted to let go of at all.  In fact, it's the only divorce that I didn't want.  But I felt that I had to get out of the situation before it consumed me emotionally.  So, off to divorce court I went.

And it was the fastest divorce I ever had.  Six months went by like a long weekend at the beach.

Then it was over.  Just like that.  And I thought that I'd feel better.

Except I didn't.  I felt the same sense of sadness that I had felt all along.

(Hey, I know I'm an expert when it comes to making money but I'm still working on mastering this relationship thing.  We all have sh** we need to learn...otherwise, why are we still here?)

Then I realized something.  And this something didn't make me happy either.

You see, I realized that I was the problem all along.  I was creating obstacles that weren't there.  I was seeing things the way I wanted to see them.  And it was easy for me to point the finger at everyone else analyzing what was wrong with their decisions (or lack thereof) but I never stopped to look at myself and how I was the problem.

Now, let me outline something magical that happened the moment I was able to just throw in the towel and let it all go.

Yes, that's right.  I literally threw in the towel.  I gave up on the marriage.  I gave up on the business we had together.  I walked away from all of it.  In my mind, it was time to move on.

The moment I truly let it all go was the moment that everything started working out.  The obstacles and walls I created in the situation suddenly dissolved.  Instead of me being a part of swimming in a muddy pond where I couldn't see what was going on as I was helplessly thrashing about, I suddenly became someone that was looking over the situation as if I was in a tree overhead with no emotional attachment or confusion about the situation.  I saw everything completely clearly for the first time in almost 4 years.

And when you can see a situation as if you're just someone observing, two critical things happen:

1)  You find immediate solutions that you failed to see before.

2)  Since you're not emotionally intertwined in the situation, your obstacles begin to melt away immediately.

When you get "on top" of a situation rather than being distraughtly intertwined in the problem/issue, everything changes.  And it changes instantly.

Unfortunately, moving from the perspective of being "in" the problem vs. "on top" of the problem is purely a mental shift that sometimes takes years to occur.

But it doesn't have to.

I did one single thing to make this shift that I could have done in a day instead of waiting for it to "happen" over the course of almost 4 years.

What was that "single thing"?

No, it wasn't just letting go...although that was part of it.

The single thing was taking a step back.  That's right.  I took a huge step back.  (Of course, you have to let go of the emotional attachment of the situation by not caring what happens anymore in order to effectively step back.)

Taking a step back requires you to take a mental and emotional "vacation."  This can mean going up into the mountains or taking a trip to the beach, even for a day.  Commit to not thinking about the "problem/issue" you have at hand and focus only on yourself, how you'd like your life to be like, and how you'd like to feel.  Or just try to think about nothing.  That's even better.  (And the best option: throw in the towel and then take time off.)

Once you return back to your life, you will probably see the situation from a different perspective.  Especially if you decided to walk away from it...and throw in the towel.  This disconnects you from the emotional involvement and opens your world up to new possibilities.

So, back to me being the problem:  I was the entire problem.  I was holding onto emotions that only became a part of my reality because I told myself they had to be part of my reality. It didn't help that other people told me that I should be feeling a certain way about my situation which when, coincidentally, I was fine with until people flooded me with their useless opinions.

Disappointment, stress, anger, anxiety and depression come from one thing and one thing only: your reality doesn't match what you think your reality should be.  However, if you believed that your reality matches what you think your reality should be, that means you're happy and content.

My problem was that my reality wasn't matching what I though my reality should be (i.e. my husband should live in the same household as me vs. living in another state) when, at an earlier time, I was completely fine with it.  I allowed a number of people to convince me that my marriage was "wrong" and "abnormal" which shifted my thoughts about it, thus making me unhappy based on my reality not matching my altered view of what I thought my reality should be.

It took me filing for divorce, going through the painful process, and having the divorce finalized for me to understand that I was the problem.

And then I was reminded of the power of letting go.  Once I threw in the towel on everything, I was instantly put "on top" of the situation (without any emotional attachment) and not only have a renewed energy toward everything but I also was flooded with new solutions to me dilemma.

But most powerful of all, blocks that were actually there that I had no control over suddenly melted away.  Things I could not get to work, things I could not get people to agree to, and different solutions I tried putting in place without success suddenly worked like gangbusters! Like magic!!

When you push too hard in any direction, especially to the point of excessive frustration and tears, you will have a hell of a time making anything work and you won't keep your sanity either.  It also means that something is wrong or that the timing is off.

And it means you need to take a step back, relax, and let it go.

When you do, magic will happen in ways that you'll never imagine.  Not only will you have this sense of peace beyond anything you've ever experienced but all the obstacles that were there will suddenly melt away or you'll be shown the true path you were supposed to be on all along.

And that's the secret I wanted to share.

I have my 5-week online Manifestation Mentorship Group starting tomorrow.  This is some of the stuff I'll be helping you with in your own life and I'll be by your side during the entire 5-week process in changing your own personal life INCLUDING WEALTH MANIFESTATION with these powerful strategies that took me a lifetime to learn.

I continue to remain in awe at the changes that are quickly unfolding almost daily; these changes span between economic and spiritual on a worldwide level.  It's both scary and revitalizing.  If you understand what's going on, you can use it as a tool to become wealthy while elevating yourself to a new spiritual level all at once.  Now is the time for you to decide that you want to do something with all of this...or ignore it and live life as "business as usual."  Unfortunately, in a couple of years from now, you'll wake up and realize there's nothing "as usual" about the world at all and...double-unfortunately, you'll have missed out by then.  My job is to bring these changes to you as they come so you can take advantage of them.

So, let's get down to business...shall we?

The economic changes that are being thrown in my direction everyday is happening at such a break-neck speed that it's like being in a 3-D OmniMax Theater wizzing through the colorful universe at 10,000 miles per hour.

The Mayan Indians could have been right about the world ending last year.  I think what really happened was that the world as we knew it ended in December 2012.

And thank God!

I read somewhere years ago (and I don't remember what exactly I read or where) about how the "end of the world" was really an end of a phase.  All ends mean new beginnings.

And that's what I'm excited about.

So what "ended" exactly?

The never-ending phase of shysters, snake oil salesmen, and shifty-eyed cons have lost footing.  Now they're all sliding down a mountain, preparing for their rapid demise.

  • Can you imagine a country with an honest lawyer who really wants to help you and your cause/fight (rather than helping their bank account get bigger)?  Can you imagine an end to frivolous lawsuits like the McDonald's hot pickle debacle where people use big companies as a selfish means of cha-ching for themselves?
  • Can you imagine living in a world where doctors want to see you get healthy, especially using well-intended (and possibly "alternative") medicines in an effort for you to have optimal health rather than pushing Big Pharma drugs that, in the long term, could hurt you?
  • Can you imagine living in a place that matches the picturesque way of what we wanted to pretend we were in the 1950s...yet we really become that wholesome, honorable, respectable, and innocent as we wished we were at that time?

I know it's hard to imagine now, especially with everything happening in the news which seems like a daily horror show.

Yet now...everything is seemingly coming apart at the seams.  You're probably wondering why there's so much disastrous news.

Sometimes you have to pull everything apart, creating a mess, before you can put everything in some kind of perfect order.  I think that's what's happening in the universe right now.

Over the years of mentoring and teaching students, I've found that many of them want to skip over the spiritual aspects of creating wealth and just get to the creating wealth part.  Yet many do not realize that the spiritual aspects are just as important as the action steps needed in the wealth-building process.

It's like baking a cake.

If you have to choose between two cake-baking necessities -- ingredients or the oven -- which would you choose?

Well, let's see...

If you have 100% of the ingredients to bake a cake but no oven, you'll have no cake in the end.

If you have an oven and no cake ingredients, you'll still have no cake.

The success action steps would be like having the cake ingredients with the full instructions on how the "process" of making your cake goes.

The oven is the "unseen" spiritual part of the success process that "heats" things up and actually makes the process work.

Again, as you can see, both are required if you're going to become a multi-millionaire.

Since you know this, why skip the spiritual part?  Do you feel like it's a waste of time?  Does it "trip you up" because you don't quite understand the mechanics of it?

One of the things I've been getting a huge amount of emails about is this basic premise from my students:

"I'm doing all the steps to invest and build a business yet I feel like I'm beating my head against the wall because nothing is happening for me."

And there's a reason for that.

It's not enough to have the knowledge, create the action plan, and do the steps.  It's like having the ingredients but no oven to bake with.

And we both know that, in the end, you won't get your "cake" that way.

With so much going on in the universe, things are changing at a warp speed.  The good news is that, unlike the old days when it took lengthy periods of time to "move" the universe in your direction, now things are happening in mere days and sometimes in mere hours.

But you have to know what you want, you have to know the order in which all the "things" that are needed for your want have to occur, and you have to be focused in a specific process to make that happen.

Last year I did a multi-day email blast series that thousands of you were instantly drawn to and wanted to know more about.

Here we are more than 8 months later and I've been finally able to put all the details down on paper for you.

I want you to watch this mind-blowing video that can tell you exactly how to change your life and get what you want in ways that no one...and I mean no one...has ever told you about before.

CLICK HERE to watch the video right now!

I think you'll start to understand: (1) why things haven't been "working out" in your life as planned lately, and most importantly (2) exactly what you need to be doing to finally catapult yourself into the successful dream-like life that you've always been after.

A few weeks ago I was walking through Home Depot in the gardening section and I saw this fountain that I just had to have.  It fits into all the feng shui "rules" and it was just so lovely that I had to get it.  And what do you know...they had only one left in stock which had my name on it.

I got rid of my other fountain in my prosperity corner at home and I set up this new fountain. Click here if you want to take a look at this exact fountain that Home Depot has that I set up in my prosperity corner at home.

Then I got a new money tree for that corner.  It's very small, like those ones that you see in the front area of the grocery store by the floral department.  Usually they're in a dish-looking thing with permanently glued-in pebbles.

Once I set up the fountain, I did notice an instant change in energy in the mere fact that it made me much happier.  (It's a nice-size fountain so it really makes a presence.)  Then, in the days that followed, our business really started to explode.  I had a whole new slew of money-making opportunities that pretty much dropped into my lap while automatically coming up with a flow of new ideas that I never thought about before.

Many of my students know how much I believe in the power of feng shui and how altering the energy in your house can make some substantial positive changes in your personal and business life virtually instantly.  And many of you know of my story about how -- more than a dozen years ago -- I went bankrupt and had to start over from scratch with nothing...and how my life completely changed from bankrupt and deeply in debt to back to multi-millionaire status...and in about 6 months!

Yes, you heard that correctly.  It took about 6 months.

I started the entire process with this book called Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life by Karen Rauch Carter.  I'll admit that I only focused on the prosperity corner of my house. And all I did was clean out my closet (which was in the prosperity corner, put some purple construction paper in there, and made my own treasure chest (to represent prosperity) out of a small chest from a craft store that I painted purple and added a bunch of fake jewels to.  (I still have that same treasure chest in my prosperity corner.)

Everything changed after that.  I went from bankrupt (as I indicated before) to building a house after claiming my multi-millionaire status...again.  And in about 6 months.

Now, was it just the feng shui that was responsible for the success?

No.  Not entirely.  I did work at my success plan, although not particularly hard.

The feng shui part makes things easy, like greased lightning.  It drops the success in your lap without much effort, gives you more ideas about attaining wealth, and makes everything super easy to do.

You tell me, which would you rather experience?

Walking through mud tied to a two-ton log, gaining almost no distance in life until you pass out or just give up?

Or having someone give you cloud-like "magical" pair of flying running shoes where all you have to do is stand up and start leaning forward then you'll start flying through life with barely any effort on your part, getting everything you ever wanted without a hitch?  (Yes, you did have to "stand up" and "lean forward" which implies some effort from you.)

So, when I mentioned my change of energy, I forgot to include the other things I did to make this happen (which was setting up the fountain and including a new money tree in my prosperity corner).

Think this is all New Age-ey clap-trap?  Fine.  Then stay broke.

The only reason I implemented any of these feng shui strategies was because I was in a situation of desperation and, maybe like you, I didn't believe in any of it until I saw first hand the power of changing your environment which changes the energy which ultimately changes everything!

Now, let's get to the part that I was talking about where you have to stand up and start leaning forward...

If you want to have ANY kind of success and wealth in your life, there's ONE critical thing you must do FIRST!

And if you're wondering what the hell that one thing is, I suggest you click here to get the gist of it. 

This is the part where you can choose to stand up and start to lean forward...and finally get the things in your life you've always wanted WITHOUT constantly sabotaging yourself.  CLICK HERE to watch a powerful video that I shot just for you!

See you at the top!
