Picture is an abstract from the daily Telegraph in November 2014.
I started life in a council flat, not even a house and not owned! I left school at age 16 with no qualifications, literally no qualifications. Yet, I went on to amass my Wealth. Today I am fortunate enough to be in the top 5% of the highest earners in the UK and top 10% Wealthiest in the UK. I didn’t get there by luck, trust me! I don’t tell you this to boast, I’m not that easily pleased! I tell you to give some validity to the advice contained in the previous blogs, this blog and the preceding blogs to follow.
I mention validity because some of my material is sometimes attacked for being zany, or basic, or school level stuff or just so simple. Fortunately I am thick skinned, very thick skinned so I am not adversely effected by the comments but I mention it because it is very informative indeed.
The same people who make these comments, are usually either very rich and are simply unable to relate to other people who have very little money or, people themselves who are very poor, and are looking / waiting for the ‘secret’ information they are sure must exist and letting everything else pass them by.
I hope – I plea – to you – reading this right now – please don’t be one of the masses who don’t, be one of the few who do. Be different. Be the ‘lucky’ one not one of the unlucky.
The following is the premise of all that I do in this field, this Profession and as an extension in my life through to my Charity and all other businesses and ventures :
To provide SOLUTIONS to the PROBLEMS people face in their every day Emotional, Financial and Physical Life by showing people Simple yet Effective Strategies to transit from their current problems to a place of Empowerment.
A place where people are FREED from limitation and constraints and EMPOWERED to make Changes to their Lives. To TRULY live Happy Fulfilled lives. To take back the Control they were born with.
The information in all these blogs is valuable. Use it, apply it and reap the rewards life wants to give you, as my Brand and Logo say : DREAM…CHANGE…REWARD.
In the first blog we looked at why to condition, In blog 2 we looked at Beliefs and how to break the ones that limit you, in part 3 we looked at using your own imagination to re-condition yourself. In this blog we will look at 3 other options you can consider to use.
Give Your Money Away
Not as blunt as it sounds you hope! No, you’ll be glad to hear. This is a tool I have personally used / actioned for as long as I can remember and I believe it is worthy of attention. The first mention of this technique was in a very famous book by Napoleon Hill, it was called ‘Think and grow rich’. A mega good book to read in it’s entirety if your interest is Wealth attainment. It has been quoted and written about since its publication a thousand times so this isn’t new nor something I have created, only to say I believe it has contributed to my financial success so I would like to briefly outline it here.
Other than the moral tick in the box of giving to others, in this case money to poorer people who maybe don’t even have enough food or shelter etc…there are other reasons / benefits to ‘giving away a resource’ you already have – again in this case money.
Remember what I said in the previous blog – that our unconscious mind does not reason logically, that is accepts input as ‘real’ regardless of whether it is acutely real, well if you follow this idea – it will lead you to a statement that is quite amazing -IF you give away some of your money on a regular basis – what your are in effect saying to your unconscious mind is – there IS MORE THAN ENOUGH!
If you are giving money to those that need it on a regular basis your unconscious will eventually believe that there must be enough – once this becomes REALTY in the unconscious – this will manifest itself in the physical world in ways you can’t yet foretell nor understand. Again it does not mean give today and next week you will find £50,000 in your bank account! It means your unconscious – once it links this up – will begin to adjust your settings, meaning your Values and Beliefs which, will vary the behaviors and actions you take in life, they will be subtle or moderate and they will be effortless rather then an ‘effort’. Your unconscious will be guiding your thoughts and thus actions into creating a situation where more money turns up in your life. I know this sounds a bit weird, but none the less it is true – true based on the testament of a great number of people including myself and a lot of the very rich.
You may be asking how long does this take to see a return so to speak and how much am I suppose to give for this to work.
The answers are grey / subjective. It’s like saying how long is a piece of string – well actually there is a logical / mathematical answer to that one, which is from one end to the middle, x 2! So with this context it too can be answered with a clever answer of ‘the more out – the more back’ but it isn’t that simple to predict – it depends on too many variables to answer definitely. Suffice to say the longer you do this ( days / weeks ) the more likely it will get conditioned. Likewise the larger the amounts the quicker your unconscious, and conscious! will take note.
Easier to stomach giving a little over a longer time than a lot quickly!
The point is to start, and to judge by results not theory or FEAR.
As a golden rule the book suggests 10%. I personally found that hard to swallow so I started with 5%. This does NOT mean take 5% of all your money and give it away it means take x% amount of your weekly income for example and give that away on a regular basis. Even if you took just £10 and gave it away regularly that would have a positive effect, especially at first as your not accustomed to doing this nor is your unconscious so it is the ACT itself that will have the greater impact and the amount the lesser impact.
Who you give it to does not overly matter – that is your personal preference. Give to whoever you feels needs that money – make it’s value exceed the amount. To give you an example of what I use to do in the early days – I would put £10 or more in an envelope with a note saying something like: this is from someone who deeply cares about you and hopes this small gift helps a little. Please accept it and know that strangers do care. I would then seal it and post it directly through the letter box of an elderly frail person I knew lived near by – I did not them personally, only knew of them. This was the early days of my Charity S.O.U.P that had not been set up yet. This year was 2001.
There are moral implications – to the advantage for giving for you and for the recipient, but that is not the reason for doing it, the outcome, the intent is based on how to create a larger amount of financial wealth in your life, and this method will contribute to that.
Scramble / Scratch
Another approach to change the present conditioning in your nervous system is to scramble the sensations – linked to something. Example, you have a memory and it has stuck in your mind for ages, you remember seeing your mum and dad argue over money, either on a single intense occasion or on numerous occasions. Those memories serve as negative conditioning that the unconscious takes to mean quite simply, MONEY = PAIN. Get it?
So one direct way to eradicate and remove that negativity is to work on the unconscious level by taking the particular memory and basically, ‘change it’. The unconscious works on ‘unique’ factors so taking the memory and changing it NOT logically but illogically will get the unconscious attention quickly.
Putting it all together goes something like this…
First read this – then DO this:
Stay standing, in fact stand tall and strong, feel good – whether that is confident or proud or happy or whatever you want to feel but it needs to be a positive feeling, In this state with your eyes closed, think in your mind of the memory from beginning to end. Once. Then ( here’s the easy and fun part ) play the memory from the beginning with changes that are ludicrous such as – all you hear is a rock track / NOT your mum and dad, see everything in gold and blue only! get the idea? make changes to that memory that are absurd and illogical. See diamonds falling like snow all through the memory! Hear ‘old McDonald had a farm e i e i o’ Add things – put ants crawling on the floor but they are the size of a cat and wearing a cap saying Life’s a ball’.
I know this is very weird. The parameters are simple – make it as bonkers as possible. Take logic OUT of the equation and do the process repeatedly in one go at least a dozen times, more is better, of going from the beginning to the end and then from the end – backwards – to the beginning. Backwards meaning see everything happen in reverse! remember to do this at speed as well, as fast as possible, faster than usual. The speed is important. Why? because your unconscious doesn’t – can’t, learn slowly!
If your memory is something different that’s okay, whatever the memory is – doesn’t matter, the content is mostly irrelevant, the only relevance is that it is relating to a negative / painful / limiting memory to do with money in some way.
Recap – play the memory / experience while in a strong physical and emotional real state, back and forth at least a dozen times at super speed and change as much of the sounds and imagery as possible in ways that are NOT logical.
Then think of the memory once your done, and notice what happens AUTOMATICALLY. If you see and hear – automatically – the new stuff then you have scratched the old memory beyond it being able to going back as it was, the measure is how you FEEL when you then THINK of the memory. If you feel better or at least neutral then you have successfully scrambled it and it is NO LONGER limiting you. Well done, now go and do this with as many outdated memory’s as you want and can!
Make Money a Study
You will like this one – it’s normal! although a little boring for some, what is it? It is ‘studying / learning’ That’s right plain and simple study time. Look, the conditioning techniques I have presented in these last 2 blogs are either ways to eliminate negative associations to money in your nervous system – or – ways to enhance the positive feelings to money you have flowing around in your body, you are numbing the pain and intensifying the pleasure so that your brain gets VERY CLEAR that money and having more of it is purely pleasurable and not how it used to be which was either more pain or just very mixed.
With that being said you still need to understand things about money that are logical and intellectual based otherwise what would you actually DO with more money if it came in to your life – most people laugh at me when that I ask them that question but they are the same people that run out of answers after just 30 seconds!
Let me give a familiar example to hammer home the point. Ryan and Lucy are having a baby and Lucy is in Labour right now. She just gave birth to a baby boy they have called Shawn. They take Shawn home and walk through the door and as they enter they realise the have NOT got anything ready! no cot, no nappies, no baby food, no clothing, no intercom, no nothing!
Can you imagine that happening! hardly not. What does a normal person do when they know a baby is coming – they prepare – they get the milk bottles ready – not just a few but 8! they buy baby music for the stereo they paint and plaster the baby’s bedroom with endless giraffes cute monkeys and fish, they buy 100 cuddly toys etc… etc… etc…
Which of the two examples works best would you say ( especially for the baby! )
As you have heard before ‘if you fail to prepare – you are preparing to fail.’
One normal simple and effective way to condition your brain to associate good strong positive feelings to money is to learn about it. If you find all the other options just not your cup of tea then fine, what about this one? What do I mean by study? NO I do not mean spend hours and hours reading boring books and charts until you have red eyes and a headache! I also want to say do not study about money that is not going to be useful to you – don’t put more overloading unused information that you will never need in your computer.
Study things that are relevant and practical. For example back to my 30 second of questions – I ask 100 people if you had £50,000 fall in to your lap tomorrow – which bank / account would you put it in to get the BEST return local to you? only 2 have the answer! 98 people are desperate for something YET have no idea what to do with it short term.
Get it? Am I making sense? Do you want me to continue blabbering on and on or are you getting all this.
Studying the bank accounts that have the best return can take 5 minutes on the net so what possible excuse is there! What else could you learn in the area of money? what about the taxation system – I know sounds scary. I agree and to let you know I’m no expert on the taxation system BUT in another 5 little minutes on the net you could easily find out 1 or 2 things you never knew, do that each day and in a month, at 5 minutes a day only, you would end up with 30 – 60 snippets of possibly useful info on money and how to save paying unnecessary tax. Strategy is everything.
The point of ‘doing’ this act of studying is to get the info yes because the person with the most info is informed – to make the best decision based on choice available! as opposed to someone who wants – but knows nothing else! but also, again you are feeding your unconscious with an association that says to your brain I am COMFORTABLE around money, I am EXCITED about money, get it!
Okay then I won’t ramble on any more you’ll be pleased to know. I’m going to go and eat now as I got carried away writing too much as usual. See you in the next blog.
