Welcome to Lesson 4.
This was really a lesson I learned over the year, that really became clear September-November.
One of my biggest passions is identifying the thought patterns that DON’T allow new students to succeed with out investment strategy. Because 92% of people who put real money in, succeed, so why don’t others do it? It fascinates me, the strategy is solid, so I’m lucky that I get to focus on what makes people successful, rather than adjusting the strategy.
I really observe the questions of our students on the weekly Q&A calls, especially after every major intake of students we have, and the energy for attracting results in investing was completely off. They were saying things like:
“How long will it take for this to work?”
“Will I be able to make the returns your best students make?
“What pitfalls do I have to watch out for?”
“Are you sure this can work for me?”
“What if it doesn’t work?”
All of these questions are SO common with everyone involved in the “wealth creation” or “investment education” industry. It really highlights a very powerful belief system that itself is designed to lose.
Did you know, the average success rate in our industry is 3-7%. Yet Gold For Life has a 92% success rate (documented in our latest student survey). Why? Because everyone else doesn’t know how to train people to EXPECT success. I learned & developed this understanding after many chats with my friend Andy Shaw and reading a lot of Wayne Dyer books.
Let me ask you a question: Would you get into a car and drive it if you KNEW that you would have a car crash and the chance of reaching your destination was only 30%?
So why do that with success, money and everything else you want?
People buy programs and take steps believing that their chance of success is low. So therefore, they create that reality. They want to “manifest” success.
The most successful people we’ve had on our program this year are those who came in knowing that 2.2% per month consistently was just a given. It had to happen, that was already confirmed, all they had to think about was how to get a higher return?
Why do you put money into an investment thinking that there’s a chance it will fail? Because the level of certainty that you’re experiencing about the result you want to create is low.
Think about it, if you KNEW 100% that any investment you were getting into would be a success, how would you act? What questions would you ask?
Do you think Donald Trump buys a building or a golf course thinking that there’s a chance it might fail? No.
You want to get so crystal clear (from Lesson 3) on your intention/purpose that you are constantly living in it. So that when you come to face it in “reality” you actually have a sense of reenactment rather than “manifestation”.
The problem with the word “manifestation” is that people are using it wrongly. And remember, it’s never the word, its the energy behind the word that will determine the outcome.
Especially with money, if you don’t believe it already exists, every negative persons views about how much money you’re worth, the economy and the fact that money is hard to make WILL get to you, it’s just everywhere. Constantly.
This fascinated me so I started studying it, and I realized that the word “Manifestation” in current modern teachings is represented as “getting something you don’t currently have”. But the true definition of the word manifestation is to display or show something that already exists.
This really became apparent when looking at the words our successful investors were using vs the words of the people not successful. Like me, the successful investors when asked about their next months returns would say things like “I’ll make 2.3% next month” or “I expect to be making about 2.2% next month”.
The unsuccessful ones would say things like – “I’m hoping to get 2.2%” or “I’m trying to aim for 2.2%.
Just say the two different types of phrases in your mind to yourself and feel the difference. One is a certainty, the other is bullshit.
The successful students were in effect reenacting the receipt of those results as they manifested throughout the month. They KNEW it was happening, it was even already visited and in the history books.
The problem with using the word “manifestation” as it exists in it’s currently bad taught manner is that people are constantly living in the future. Just say it now, I manifest a million pounds”. Doesn’t it even FEEL like its an event taking place in the future?
Guess what, it’s the energy behind the word, not the word. All the great teachers have said this.
When I learned this, and realised it and paid attention to it consciously, magical things started happening. Almost as if we were being pulled into the future, like the very cells of nature were transforming around me.
So, my first test of this was to actually brutally destroy any of my students who used bad language like that, change the word first, force them to use a different word, which inspired an energy that I would coach into them. By the way, if you join the coaching programs, you, without knowing, give me permission to destroy your self esteem, future and everything, aslong as it helps you get what you want :-).
I’m a coach, not a member of the psychological support department.
Anyway, crazy things started happening, our success rate jumped from around 40% to over 92%. Just because every week, I’m on the calls, realigning the energy, realigning the expectancy.
So, manifestation is really garbage, BECAUSE of the way it’s taught and received now.
You must know beyond a shadow of a doubt that your next action is going to succeed and drive you further to your purpose before you actually take the action. Live from an energy of re-enactment, not from an energy of manifestation.
If you want to test this, try this: close your eyes and visualise what you want to MANIFEST in 2013.
It feels like it’s in the future right? or will be manifested OVER 2013? i.e. it’s not happened.
Now, close your eyes and go to the end of 2013 and RE-ENACT what showed up in 2013.
Feels like it’s DONE.
Everyday, you want to live in that re-enactment.
Buying a property? Live in the profit of that property.
Doing Day-Trading? Live in the profit of that trading
Investing in Gold For Life? LIVE in the profits Gold For Life have made you in 2013. And now act. Then it becomes simple, pick the one with the most proof of success. In-fact that’s all you’ll be able to see, the bullshit will disappear, as if by magic.
Then its simple, once you’re living in the reenactment, every opportunity you analyse will either feel right or feel wrong. Go with the one that feels right.
This is a big lesson I learned, everything I now do is an action that through the process of knowing what I want and then living in the re-enactment of it. So I hardly make any wrong or wasted decisions anymore.
If there is no decision to make, no action to take, I do nothing, this has already happened, I’m already on the Forbes 400 list, so why would I want to experiment, might aswell just do the same thing I did when I did it the first time around 😉
Lesson 5 tomorrow.
