Prosperity Step #8

Prosperity Step #8… “Anything That Is Worthwhile Doing, Is Worth Starting Now… Regardless of whether you’re “ready” or not!

Welcome to The Ten Steps To Wealth

This series of posts is based on the 11 steps I took to become financially free. Together, they form The Pathway To Prosperity.

This step is about developing an ability to seize the moment and start your journey now.

Don’t wait for another moment… don’t keep procrastinating, or resisting, or waiting for things to be “perfect”.

And don’t over think what you need to do or what might happen. Because this will just keep you locked within the results you have today.

It’s far more productive to learn from trial and error processes than it is from resistance and perfectionism which literally get you nowhere.

There’s a tendency in society to insulate ourselves in order to create a buffer between ourselves and the joys and happiness we experience so we don’t lose what we have. We love to render ourselves safe… in case what we have is taken away.

But when we do this, we no longer feel the freedom we once had as a child.

Price Pritchett knew of this tendency when he wrote, “Getting ready is actually, quite frankly, a stalling tactic, an act of anxiety, a con game you’re working on yourself. You’re already able to escape to a higher plain of performance. If you wait until you get it perfect, you’ll never get it at all.”

In step #7, I mentioned that the ultimate example of determined focus is to look for the circumstances you want and if you can’t find them, then make them.

I also mentioned that the critical task I face as a mentor… it’s getting people to focus on the outcomes they want instead of the daily distractions that pull them in all sorts of non-productive directions.

In life, you meet people who are happy to be “spectators” of what goes on. They follow socially engineered pathways of living and never question the status quo. They play safe, but never really engage.

Others take on more of a “tourist” role. They go where people have gone before and follow well worn pathways to predetermined destinations.

Unbeknown to most people, that’s exactly what social engineering does. It teaches them how to earn money, then spend money, then borrow money. And every year, people cycle through waves of earn… spend… and borrow… without ever realising how little they progress.

A third group could be described as “explorers” who are curious and set courses that take them into new territory. They’re the ones who have the courage to discover their way forward before the territory is fully mapped.

Success and prosperity depend on your ability to explore.

There are two ways to move forward on your journey of making more money or creating financial freedom…

The first is to develop curiosity and become an explorer if you want to achieve all you’re yet to experience. It’s all about making a start and discovering the territory ahead of you.

In essence, it’s about starting before you’re ready and then learning all you need to learn as you go.

Now this concept might clash with your subconscious conditioning, but in truth we do it most all the time.

Whenever we attempt to learn a new skill we often start before we know what to do.

The second way is probably more certain. It’s engaging a mentor… a guide if you like…

It’s learning directly from someone who has made the journey of financial freedom many times before. Someone who has a track record of successfully teaching others how to make more money and increase their cash flow.

The way I currently support explorers is through my weekly live mentoring Q&A sessions.

Sadly though, instead of engaging mentors, one of the biggest mistakes that’s often made is following the advice of others before you work out whether or not that advice is effective.

Quite often, following the advice of “non-qualified others” has disastrous consequences because we’re not following explorers or mentors… we’re following the advice of spectators and tourists who are struggling to find their own way.

One thing to bear in mind is that as soon as you make a fully committed decision to have prosperity in your life, you immediately strike out in that direction.

This necessitates leaving behind those who are talking but not acting.

When I was starting out, a sense I developed quite quickly was a ‘sense of urgency’ for getting important things done.

Even though I didn’t really know what to do, I spent my time practicing the acquisition of new skills.

So make sure your focus is effective and purposefully directed.

The time to start the acquisition of new skills is now, don’t wait until you are ready.

If you want to earn $100,000, passively you can only learn by doing because it’s the only way to convert information into useful experience.

Achievers are self directed, have effective self-images, dream big, control their time, work at getting important things done and nurture harmonious lives.

You have exactly the same potential to similarly shape your results.

Prosperity Step #7

Prosperity Step #7… “Sensory Conditioning And The Hidden Secrets Of Mastery

Welcome to The Ten Steps To Wealth

This series of posts is based on the 11 steps I took to become financially free. Together, they form The Pathway To Prosperity.

This step is about developing an ability to see only the destination you’re interested in so that potential obstacles begin to fade from view.

George Bernard Shaw summed up this ability in the following words, “People are always blaming circumstance for what they are. I do not believe in circumstance. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want and if they can’t find them, they make them.

And that’s essentially what you must learn to do. It’s the ultimate example of determined focus directed towards the important outcomes you want and not the distractions you find along the way.

This is by far the most often repeated task I face as a mentor… it’s getting people to refocus on their outcomes instead of the daily distractions that suck them into all sorts of non productive behaviours.

Underachievers live in an external world of stimulus and reaction. Their “story” is an account of the life circumstances that have prevented them from achieving more.

Achievers don’t have a story, they create the reality they want. They’re guided by strong internal processes. They have a great sense of clarity and they respond to obstacles rather than react to them.

The real secret to achievement is learning to develop a yes bias that allows you to respond effectively to circumstance.

People tend to be their own biggest obstacles. As a result, they spend most of their time battling fires on different fronts and moving from one drama to another.

To enjoy prosperity you need to respond to resistance rather than react to it. When faced with obstacles, you need to see them as opportunities to grow.

Napoleon Hill reminds us that in every disaster there are seeds of an equivalent opportunity or more.

When confronted with obstacles, prosperous people understand that they’re simply lessons waiting to be learned along the Pathway To Prosperity.

In Mans Search For Meaning, we read the story of Victor Frankl a Viennese psychiatrist imprisoned in a German concentration camp.

As you read his story, it’s difficult to comprehend that anyone could have been tortured more than he.

They took everything from him but somewhere along the way he realised he had something they could never take from him and that was his ability to choose what things meant to him.

We’re all blessed with similar powers… Yet most people choose to surrender their power by continuing to live in mental prisons of their own thinking.

What would you do differently if you were to realise that your current results are in perfect harmony with the way you think… would you begin to change the way you think?

While people may have dreams of greener pastures, luxurious holidays and firing their bosses, the thought of doing anything about those dreams freezes people into inaction.

As a result they keep looking at where the grass is greener but they do it from behind their self imposed barriers.

To get past these self imposed limitations, you often need the support of a mentor. That’s what I found and it’s one of the things that helped me achieve the results I wanted faster than I could have otherwise done by myself.

When you work with a mentor or a mentorship group in a step by step mentoring program, two things happen… firstly, you move away from the intrusion of distraction and secondly, you feel more supported to move towards the results you want at a faster pace.

When the time is right for you… it’s time for a change.

Prosperity Step #6

Prosperity Step #6… “Manifestation And How To Make Abstract Ideas Manifest.”

Welcome to The Ten Steps To Wealth… series of posts on The Pathway To Prosperity.

If you’ve been reading the previous posts, you’ll have come to understand that each of the prosperity steps represent the processes I used to recondition my money mind from one that ended up being a penniless potter at the age of 40 to becoming a multimillionaire a few years later.

Essentially, this step is all about how to move ideas from non-physical reality to physical reality.

So let’s begin with this observation from James Allen. “You have everything you need: a miraculous body, a phenomenal brain, and a vast and powerful subconscious mind. Now it’s just a matter of focusing them in the right direction.” (As You Think)

Turning dreams into reality is a creative ‘process’ which requires an understanding of the steps involved. It’s also important to understand how your mind works in conjunction with your subconscious mind.

Being unsuccessful is just as easy as being ‘successful’. One is no harder to do than the other. Both are habits of mind. Both are learned states and both are achieved through mind.

Success is achieved by working with successful people while the lack of success is achieved by working with unsuccessful people. In either case, both successful and unsuccessful people work as mentors that help shape your reality.

While most people don’t think of unsuccessful people as being mentors, the fact of the matter is that they are extremely powerful mentors who subconsciously enroll people into their lack of success mentorship programs.

It’s just that the attitudes, beliefs, values, thoughts, behaviours, and ideas they offer are not thought of as being mentoring, nor are they called mentors… but they are.

Their mentorship programs are why the majority of adults never achieve a fraction of their true potential nor rise to a level where they can achieve financial freedom and independence.

The sixth step along the Pathway To Prosperity is all about getting into the right mentoring environment for the outcomes you want. And then exercising the mental muscle called imagination. It’s only through this intellectual facility that you can build dreams into reality with crystal clarity.

If your vision is not clear, it simply means you are in the wrong group of mentors and you have not exercised your imagination enough. So the idea is to relax and allow the image you want to build over time.

The more you exercise your imagination, the stronger it becomes.

Moving an idea into physical form is just a movement of one form of energy to another… from abstraction to reality.

“You will become as great as your dominant aspiration… if you cherish a vision in your heart, you will realize it.” (As You Think)

The biggest challenge to moving ideas from one reality to another is that most people act on reflex… or non-conscious determination. Unfortunately, it’s powerful non-conscious mentors who keep non-conscious determination in place for most people.

Achievement of “next level” results means turning non-conscious determination into non-conscious intentionality by practicing what you want everyday.

If you asked Bill Gates, Sir Edmund Hillary, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, John Saunders, Nelson Mandela, Alexander Graham Bell, The Wright Brothers, Neil Armstrong, Roger Bannister or Sam Walton how they achieved their dreams

They’d all give you the same answer… They all started by creating a vision. They saw things in their mind that had never been done before.

Then they gave to the mill the grist it needed to move their ideas from dreams to reality. (Non-conscious intentionality)

They started with ideas then built a vision through the use of their imagination. The emotional leverage they got on their vision became their driving force.

Your challenge is to move out of negative environments and into more fertile environments that help you build your vision for yourself everyday. The more emotional leverage you get on yourself and your dreams, the faster they happen.

Through the use of emotional leverage, people who achieve great things are able to resist the intrusion of negative people and dream thieves.

Today we have little trouble believing that man can walk on the moon.

We have little trouble believing that we can fly at over 700 kph, that we can climb the highest peak on earth… or that we can communicate around the world via the click of a mouse.

So why is it that most people have difficulty believing that they can achieve their dreams? One answer is that they follow the advice of the majority mentor group who can only lead them to “less ” rather than “more”.

When you work with a mentor or mentorship group who has the exact lifestyle you want for yourself, two things happen… you move away from the intrusion of negative people and you move towards the results you want at a faster pace.

When the time is right for you… it’s time for a change.

Prosperity Step #5

Prosperity Step #5… “Victory, Success And The Conquest Of Anti-Forces.”

Anti-Forces equal resistance… They’re like headwinds that keep pushing you back.

Welcome to The Ten Steps To Wealth blog site. Make sure you read the previous four steps because they’re all connected. Each post describes one step in a series of 11 that I took to enjoy multimillionaire freedom in a relatively short period of time.

If you practice each step, I’m sure you can achieve similar results.

Anti-Forces are the challenges you’ll face from family, friends, work colleagues, society, peer pressure, negative media, naysayers and generally from people who don’t know how to support your journey towards economic and personal freedom.

This is exactly what happened to me as I started out. In the first few years, I kept bumping into people and situations that would take the wind out of my sails… and it was really hard to understand why. While I was full of dreams, I kept meeting resistance from friends and people who said they were well meaning.

It just didn’t make sense… all I was getting were obstacles rather than support. One day, I finally understood the reasons why.

Resistance to your goals and dreams comes from people who are not ambitious for themselves. It comes from people who have never achieved the dreams you want. If you shine more than them, it makes them uncomfortable because it shows up their lack of desire and their own limitations.

So if you want to achieve financial freedom… you must find a way to overcome these anti-forces. And the best way to do this, is to find a mentor.

If you look closely at high achievers in any field of endeavour, you will find a supportive mentor somewhere in the background.

Real support comes from a place of love, no matter what. So if you have that special “unconditional” relationship in your life… you’re going to fly.

But if you don’t, don’t worry… there is another way. You can get real support from people who have actually achieved the outcomes you want. As Steve Jobs said, “You can’t connect the dots moving forward… You can only connect the dots looking back.”

That’s why successful people in your area of interest and desire are the best people to support you. Because they’ve achieved the results you want, they can connect the dots for you. People who have not achieved these outcomes, cannot connect those dots… and unless they’re coming from love, they can’t really support you.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that, “What lies before you and what lies behind you are tiny matters compared with what lies within you.”

Pushing past the anti-forces takes courage because for most of your journey you’re going to feel alone. In fact, the biggest challenge to becoming financially free is trying to do everything yourself.

It rarely ever works because enculturation encourages you to follow a different pathway. One that takes you down the treadmill towards endless work/pay cycles of earn, spend and borrow!

Look around and you’ll see generations of people stuck in this pattern, but you’ll see very few people who ever become free as a result of it.

The fastest way for you to become successful is to get yourself into the energy orbit of a mentor who is already financially free because they can support you and they can connect the dots looking back.

Mentorship is a process of moving forward to your goals. It’s provided by mentors and mentoring sessions designed to support , encourage , guide and teach you how to achieve your outcomes.

Alternatively, you’ll find yourself remaining stuck in anti-forces that guarantee conformity and never lead to prosperity.

James Allen said, “People are anxious to improve their circumstances but unwilling to improve themselves. They therefore remain bound. To change your life you have to change your life.”

You must learn to develop different habits of thought. If you don’t, you’ll remain bound within the results of collective agreements.

Freedom comes from the renewal of your mind. It comes when you change your mental habits.

Mental prisons remain in place through anti-forces that enculturation encourage you to experience. If there’s no change in mental habits, there can be no change in financial results.

SO don’t let this happen to you, don’t remain stuck and don’t remain bound. Your future is worth so much more than that isn’t it?

Dissolving the limitations that keep you repeating the same habits… is the next step on your journey towards economic and personal freedom.

Prosperity Step #4

Prosperity Step #4… “Assisted Passage To Your Ultimate Prosperity Destination – Part 2.”

Welcome to The Ten Steps To Wealth blog site. This series of posts on the pathway to prosperity is #4 so make sure you see the previous three because they’re all connected and they describe the series of 11 steps I took to unlearn my old conditioned ways around money so that I could learn new ways. The end result was financial freedom in a relatively short period of time.

If you follow the same steps and really practice them, I’m sure you can achieve similar results. The only reason you wouldn’t is because you’re allowing yourself to be distracted in some way.

Distraction means “broken focus” and whenever you allow “broken focus” to become part of your life, you can never achieve the prosperity goals you set for yourself.

These 11 steps are not the actual money making steps I took… they’re the steps I used to recondition my money mind. The actual money making steps are available in the books I’ve written to give you a complete blueprint of dead flat broke to multimillionaire. If you’d like to read a copy, you can find them here http://www.paulcounsel.com.au/products/index.php

Assisted Passage Pt 2 is all about why most people can glimpse their potential prosperity yet still fall short of their dreams.

If this describes you, these experiences happen because you’ve yet to make the necessary changes in the most powerful part of your mind.

Those who succeed are those who apply the necessary energy to change their subconscious responses to the world around them…

Renowned scientists, such as Bruce Lipton, have spent many years attempting to change people’s understanding of what controls the expression of their lives.

The #1 controlling factor in health, happiness, fulfilment and financial effectiveness is belief.

It’s the subconscious beliefs programmed into your mind through the processes of enculturation that limit you. What would your results be if your subconscious beliefs matched your conscious desires?

The #2 controlling factor is that very few beliefs are ever changed by an intellectual understanding of them.Most people understand that limiting beliefs hold them back but they don’t do the necessary emotional or psychological work to change their beliefs.

Beliefs do one of two things. They either reinforce limitation or they accelerate success. There’s no shades of grey here.

“To pursue wealth, real, independent wealth, you have to discharge yourself from a number of things… and not just the obvious things such as debt and unnecessary expenses.” Barry Goss

And, because of broken focus, that’s the one thing that most people can’t do. They can’t discharge themselves from ineffective thinking and old habit patterns.

Distraction is basically anything that breaks focus and anything that’s used to numb your mind and emotions. This is where most people go when they’re stressed or overwhelmed.

It’s the easiest thing to do, it’s ineffective in terms of the prosperity results you want, but it’s easy. The more time you spend in distraction… the more time you spend away from what you want.

So why do it? Why keep allowing yourself to be distracted?

When you keep allowing yourself to be distracted, you’re not really happy but you’re not unhappy enough to make some serious changes. Living in distraction depletes your time and diminishes your potential.

Distraction = You can’t control the outcomes you want until you tap an energy that allows you to live above the distractions you’re allowing yourself to experience.

To gain the freedom you desire, you must bring structure and order to your thinking.

The secret to gaining prosperity faster than you otherwise might is to engage your imagination to help build and reinforce an image of what you want so that it becomes clear in your mind’s eye.

Do not sway from this task and work on it everyday to make it stronger. The stronger it becomes, the more you’ll begin authoring the thoughts, behaviours and beliefs of prosperity.

An author can only complete a book by focusing on the actions of authoring…

If you fail to focus on the outcomes you want, the more you’ll be authoring from limiting beliefs, distraction and fragmented thinking.

Your life then becomes the book you authored… limiting beliefs, distraction, drama and poor financial results.

You’re worth much more than this aren’t you? Or are you?

Prosperity Step #3

Prosperity Step #3…”Assisted Passage To Your Ultimate Prosperity Destination – Part 1.”

Welcome to this post on The Ten Steps To Wealth blog site.

This post on the notion of gaining access to Assisted Passage on your journey along the pathway to prosperity has to do with the steps involved in accessing and experiencing prosperity.

Part one defines the differences between a competitive mindset… encouraged by societal conditioning, and a creative mindset… encouraged by all the timeless great sages.

It concentrates on using your creative mindset and tapping into the universal energy fields of causality, or first cause because it’s your gateway to prosperity and financial freedom.

In order to play the starring role in your new life script… (your homework from prosperity step #1) it’s important to understand some of the workings of your mind. When you do, you can learn to tap into the true powers available to you.

In The Science of Getting Rich, Wallace D Wattles said, “You don’t get rich by doing certain things, you get rich by doing things in a certain way.” (1903)

So what is this “certain way” and why do so many people get it so wrong?

It’s important to concentrate on “things in a certain way”. You can be doing all the right things, but if you’re not doing them in a certain way, you may never become successful. Like any formula, it’s no good having all the right ingredients but putting them together in the wrong order.

The pathway towards your goals can sometimes be challenging and sometimes confusing. Therefore it’s extremely important that your reasons for achieving are stronger than the excuses that prevent your growth.

If your reasons are not strong enough, if your beliefs are lacking and if doubts overcome you… you risk failing to achieve your outcomes.

Within your brain is the activity we call mind. Some minds can be described as competitive while others can be described as creative. 

People who lack freedom and remain incarcerated operate from what’s known as a competitive mindset. People who achieve economic from personal freedom operate from what’s described as a creative mind.

People who operate from a competitive mind are always trying to be “right” which means that they’re always at effect. They’re held back by internal limits. They’re trapped in an unconscious version of “right way” thinking, and while they’re not often conscious of it, they’re forever dealing with inner judgement, limitation and sacrifice.

They’re struggling with unseen energies because they believe in a limited supply model of prosperity.

A competitive mindset can never encourage the flow of… “doing things in a certain way”.

To attract the prosperity you want, you must tap your higher creative powers.

There are no reason for limits other than those imposed by Consumption Code Living. Outside this code of living, there are no limits to the enjoyment you can experience.

Those who operate through a creative mind realise that their power to create is truly unlimited. They realise that it’s possible to exponentially increase effectiveness by tapping into higher order faculties of mind.

Creative mindscaping is fertile. Through it, you can gain exposure to your unrealised potential because this potential already exists within, around and through you.

Everything in the manmade world was made manifest through thinking and higher order mind faculties. You must become skilled in the non-physical world in order to manifest a new reality in the physical world.

Here’s a short testimonial from one of the past graduates of The Pathway To Prosperity. Paul… “On my goal board I have I QUIT MY JOB right in the centre so that is the first thing I see each day. All my life I have never put much thought into the process of how we obtain things that we really want. Now I think about it, we all have a goal board in our minds. The difference between the one in our heads and the one on my wall is the one on the wall stays in focus.” Scott

Remaining focused through a creative mind is the second most powerful thing you can do to achieve prosperity. The first most powerful thing you can do is to become as focused as a laser beam. This means attending to your intention on a daily basis.

In the expanded webinar versions of these 11 steps coming up soon… I’ll show you how to do this.
