A LOT of Gold For Life Members read/watch/learn from Personal Development & Spiritual education. It is OF-COURSE a very good thing to continue to develop yourself and improve the quality of your life through education about life. I do it myself.
But, it is also VERY common for people who are earning lots of money, to start reading personal development or spiritual education and suddenly experience a sudden, deep, drop in the amount of money they can make.
I went through this myself a few years back and want to explain WHY it happens, I’ve only been able to articulate this very recently and I think it’s profound.
It will explain to you, if you’ve experienced similar why it happened, and more importantly, how to continue Personal & Spiritual Development and never have it happen again.
Ready? Because this is going to take a deep look at the foundation of your character.
One thing that amazes me is why do so many people succeed with Gold For Life, a documented 92% success rate, but why. Especially when we have people from both sides of the spectrum, those who touch anything and it turns to gold (no pun intended) and those who have failed in everything they’ve tried, use Gold For Life, and it works, finally.
This is because the way the Gold For Life program is set up, we make people step out of their current conditioning, whatever it is, and just apply the rules that work, without thinking, and if they apply the rules, it works. So the normal frustration of learning 40 different variables is removed to just 1, that is, can you follow the rules.
Now this is valuable, but I didn’t know how valuable until I had this realisation about Personal & Spiritual education on ability to create wealth.
We’ve got to take this all the way back to why anyone wants to create money. Usually, there is a reason, a motivation, a belief or a value that the person holds so close and powerful to them that it motivates them to go forth and create wealth.
Creating wealth isn’t easy, there are road-blocks, situations come up, circumstances happen, all of this can and could stop you. In-fact 99%+ of people in the world WILL die with less than $1,000,000 to their name. That means, A LOT of people stop in their tracks because of these road-blocks. And there aren’t that many different road-blocks…
So the question isn’t ability. It’s our perception of the world that stops us or pushes us, our perception is created via our beliefs or knowing about the world around us.
Unfortunately, most of us are motivated to make money to avoid some sort of pain. Tell me if you relate to this in the comments, but for most people, they want to make money to avoid the hardships of life, live a better life than their parents, give their children a life they didn’t have, show their friends they could do it & win, prove to the world that they are worthy enough to win, defeat their competition & generally prove themselves to the world around them etc. Really to shield themselves from the hardships that not having money causes.
Correct? Why do YOU want to create wealth?
What this means is that your want to avoid that pain of the consequence is creating your drive, your motivation, your willingness to act & find ways to create wealth.
When you start reading Personal & Spiritual Development books & education, the heart of that industry is to relieve pain.
So you read the books, do the exercises, go to the seminars, work through what’s causing pain, remove it, feel absolutely awesome.
RESULT! Yes? Well… Maybe.
Money isn’t everything, and happiness is way more important than money, but a wise man once told me, “it’s never the thing that’s the problem, it’s the way you look at the thing.”
What that means is, for most people, your sole motivation to go and create wealth, was stemming from the pain that you’re holding. When you go and read personal/spiritual development education, you remove that pain, subsequently removing the VERY thing that you were using to motivate/inspire and drive you to create the wealth.
You removed your driving force.
Imagine, your driving force for making money was to help the family and people around you because on some level you felt worthless that you couldn’t at a time you had no money. You went to a Personal Development program, removed that pain, subsequently removing the need to want to help, and the domino effect is that your drive to make money, just disappeared.
It’s never the thing that’s the problem, it’s the way you look at the thing.
You saw that pain as real, hard to deal with pain, but your brain had manipulated it and used it to create what it needed to get you to act & succeed.
Do you see how this works now?
I’m not saying you have to be hurting and sad all your life to get rich, in-fact I think the wealthiest people on the planet are those who are creating wealth from a perspective of service & happiness.
The real problem isn’t getting rid of that pain, it’s replacing it with another motivator to KEEP YOU CREATING THE MONEY.
I was recently with Andy Shaw for a couple days, who a lot of you know is a friend of mine and he’s also the author of A Bug Free Mind. I was observing/speaking at his workshop about Designing Your Life, especially since I was the person who forced Andy to actually run it after he helped me create the design for my perfect partner in May 2012. I wanted to see my manifestation come to life and help the 42 people in the room! Was very satisfying :D!
What I like about what Andy calls designing is that rather than creating an attachment to the wealth, which is created from the perception of pain eg “I’ve got to have that, I need it in my life to plug xyz hole”, it teaches people to create a design that comes from within you, and creates a pull towards it, from the perception of happiness.
When you design your life from within you, not from what you’ve experienced from outside you, you automatically get pulled to it, rather than pushed to it.
Once you eliminate the push, which as we’ve seen above, can be taken from you with a little Personal/Spiritual development and removal of the “pain”. And replace it with a pull, you find yourself happy & wealthier.
If you DON’T do this, you are making the choice between Happiness & Money.
The problem is, because most Personal/Spiritual Development programs are not holistic ie they don’t deal with the “whole you”, once they’ve helped you erase the pain, they are by definition a success. But you as an individual need to keep an eye on the effects of that for the rest of your life.
This is why with Gold For Life, we sort of step outside of this, and make it automatic for our students, wealth is certain, following the rules is the goal. We remove the pressure, remove the need, remove the attachment… and it just works.
This is a very important part of human psychology that you can seriously mess with, if you’re not working with the right people. Most importantly, just not observing what’s happening to you as a person as you change one part of you that seems “right” to change.
So, all I’m saying is BE CAREFUL. This has happened to me, and several other successful people. I don’t want it to happen to you. Look at what motivates you to create money, and cherish it, be grateful for it.
Thank you & share the post if you found it valuable!
