Why You’re Not Rich Yet (this might hurt)

Screen Shot 2013-08-19 at 6.24.34 PMLately I’ve been coming across a bunch of great articles teaching insights into the ways wealthy people think. I love this sort of stuff; stats about how much time wealthy people spend on personal development and education while the poor spend their free time on reality TV and the like.

Some of my favourite comparisons from a recent article I read –

80% of wealthy are focused on accomplishing some single goal. Only 12% of the poor do this.

63% of wealthy listen to audio books during commute to work vs. 5% for poor people.

81% of wealthy maintain a to-do list vs. 19% for poor.

67% of wealthy write down their goals vs. 17% for poor

88% of wealthy read 30 minutes or more each day for education or career reasons vs 2% for poor.

6% of wealthy say what’s on their mind vs. 69% for poor.

67% of wealthy watch 1 hour or less of TV. every day vs. 23% for poor

6% of wealthy watch reality TV vs. 78% for poor.

44% of wealthy wake up 3 hours before work starts vs.3% for poor.

74% of wealthy teach good daily success habits to their children vs. 1% for poor.

84% of wealthy believe good habits create opportunity luck vs. 4% for poor.

76% of wealthy believe bad habits create detrimental luck vs. 9% for poor.

86% of wealthy believe in life-long educational self-improvement vs. 5% for poor.

86% of wealthy love to read vs. 26% for poor.

Okay I just ended up copying out nearly the whole article 🙂 seriously I love that sort of stuff though; it fascinates me.

What shocks me, and the reason I’m writing this post, is the responses that are given to these sort of articles in the comments or on Facebook. I could cut and paste some examples in but essentially it’s some sort of combination of the following –

It’s all very well for rich people.

Well I didn’t come from money I have to work for a living!

I have to work 80, 100 etc hours per week so my boss can go on holidays.

Wealthy people have the capital to be able to do what they want and turn their ideas into a business.

Who would want to be rich anyway, rich people sacrifice time with their family and friends just to get ahead.

I’ve seen a different variation of these sort of comments on the Facebook posts of my business coach. She shares actual figures about how much her clients are making – needless to say some pretty impressive sh*t. Sadly, instead of asking how they too could become one of her clients or get results like that most people bitch and moan about how they don’t believe it, it’s all a scam, or that she should ‘prove it’.

Prove it?

Why in God’s good name should anybody prove to YOU that they or their clients are capable of success?

How about you get off your butt and start proving to yourself that you actually want more money, a more fulfilling life, to leave a greater impact and DO something about it.

How about you stop using time, uncertainty, lack of capital as an excuse for not creating a new life for yourself and your family?

How about you stop pretending that YOUR wealth and success is anybody’s choice, fault or influence but your own?

Show me somebody who uses time, lack of money, lack of know-how, having to ask permission from their partner, or ‘wanting proof that other people’s success is real’ as an excuse and I’ll show you somebody who will still be spinning their wheels and wondering why other people are luckier than them a year from now.

You want success, wealth, to live a life that is truly soul-fulfilling and gives you the freedom to be, do and have whatever you want?

Then freaking well make it happen.

YOU freaking well make it happen.

Oh but I don’t know if I can …

But what if it doesn’t work …

My last idea failed …

I don’t have _______ that you/he/she has …

Okay then. Back to the 9-5 or whatever your life is now but don’t come whining about how unfair it is that you don’t have exactly the life you want if you’re not actually willing to make it happen regardless of your current circumstance or possible bevy of reasons not to.

Maybe I’m living with my head in the clouds but honestly I did not realise just how negative the typical mentality is when it comes to money and success. I guess I’ve done a good job of surrounding myself with the right people, with finding ‘my people’ so to speak; those who will reinforce and support the beliefs I’ve always had about my ability to succeed and become wealthy.

Like the belief that anybody with drive and the willingness to keep putting one foot in front of another can ‘make it’.

That becoming wealthy gives you MORE time with your loved ones and also greater ability to help others and give back.

That you can turn an idea and your determination into a million dollar+ business with less than $100 down if you really want to.

That nobody limits you except for yourself.

And that you are the product of not only how you spend your time but also of the thoughts you allow to live in your head.

The sad thing is that each person out there who believes wealth is a side-effect of luck or only for a select few or in some way makes you a bad or selfish person will live with that experience as reality.

And anybody who believes that they can change their circumstances and that it’s up to them to prove it to themselves and to do it will live with THAT experience as reality, and enjoy the benefits.

If you’re not rich it’s not because you don’t have what it takes.

It’s not because of lack of time, or money or know-how or proof or because you have to ask somebody else’s permission to follow your dreams and they don’t think it’s realistic.

It’s because deep down YOU don’t think it’s realistic. For you.

And you’re not willing to prove yourself wrong.

Or are you?

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’m excited to announce my Flow-Led Millionaire Private Client Mastermind Days are back, happening this August (PM me for full deets!) 

Warning! This Mastermind will require you to get TF over your hang-ups around:

* Automated income

* Being seen more, and more boldly

* Adding layers upon layers upon layers of more SELLING

* Ruthless repurposing and re-selling

* Structure, systems, process

* Building a cash machine which pays you on repeat regardless of whether YOU are grinding your fingers to the bone to get it working!

Requirements:

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!

You’re not afraid of doing the damn work (duh),

but you also know that there’s a simpler way, a more flow way, a more YOU way.

And you’re ready to get down to the nitty gritty of that now, and then roll it out like the take no prisoners mofo you are.

All with me – secret counsel to the worlds most elite game-changers, leaders, and revolutionaries – supporting you to know exactly what to do,

and exactly how to do it,

so you make MORE money,

reach MORE (of the right people),

the YOU way,

having more fun and flow than you ever dreamed possible,

and finally knowing you’re all in on you,

Now!

What you get out of this time together is simple:

* Identified opportunities for money-makin’ – minimum 3, up to 10+ (this is normal in these conversations with me)

* Specific to you simple soulmate audience growth strategy, which you can roll out right away, and will often involve only ‘tweaks’ rather than having to DO anything dramatically extra

* Confidence and inner tools as well as practical steps for improving / adding to / setting up (depending where you’re at) your automated income / funnels 

* Personalised (to your personality / style / lifestyle / skillset) action plan for implementing

* Tweaks you can add in right away to increase sales on existing processes

* Daily / weekly ‘hustle flow plan’ individualised to you

All in all here’s what it comes down to:

>>> You will walk out with a complete action plan tailored to your business, very detailed and also very SIMPLE, with also a complete understanding of what you need to do and HOW to do it, to take you to the next major income level, and beyond.

This will include your next three offers (MINIMUM), up-sells, or funnel ad-ins, FULLY CREATED IN THE TIME TOGETHER!

Plus:

1:1 follow on support to help you implement and follow through.

I love doing this INTENSIVE deep dive work where we pull everything apart all at once, and then nail down the EXACT action steps for each person to take to get more paying customers and clients, who are soul-aligned, coming in NOW, who are also buying more things, because you’ve got all your damn shit in place!

This immersive day together is limited to 5-7 people per event.
