Do You Deserve Success?

Think about that question for a moment: do you deserve success? While it's a simple 'yes' or 'no' question, it's one that will really illuminate the reason why your bank account looks the way it does.

In fact do this: stop reading right now and say this aloud: I deserve to be rich.

What feelings came up for you? Did you feel confident? Did you feel authentic? Did you feel like you were speaking the truth?

Or did you feel like a phoney? Did you feel like you were saying something that wasn't true?

Most people want success. They desire success. They wish for it. They imagine it. But, they don't really feel like they deserve it. And, as a result, they fail.

Get that. Really get that.

Maxwell Maltz, in his book PsychoCybernetics made the statement that you "can never outperform your own self-image". Your self-image is like a goal-seeking mechanism. Like a heat-seeking missile. And, quite simply, if you don't believe you deserve success....then you can't have it. No matter what else you're doing right, you will sabotage your own results.

See, it's a pretty simple concept: you are where you are right now because of your best thinking. Period.

Look at your bank account.
Your physical health.
Your marriage.
Your parenting.
Your relationships.
Your wallet.

Everything in your life is a reflection of your self-image. And solving anything but your self-image is just trying to put a band-aid on the symptoms. You're not getting to the root of your problem.

And this is a core area of the Beyond Freedom Home Study Course. When you start using the principles taught in the study guide as well as the CD series and the DVD....you start understanding the shifts in thinking that are required to change the results you've been getting.

And as a result, you start attracting more of what you want out of life....and less of what you don't want!

Do you deserve wealth? You BET you do! So, when will you start acquiring it?

Success Is Easy -- Don't Let Anyone Tell You Differently

Success is easy. Don't let anyone tell you any differently.

When I understood that I didn't have to be "good at this business" to make tons of money, my perspective on everything changed. Oh, sure you need certain skills. You need to be able to communicate.

But, ultimately, the reason people succeed is because of who they are BEing. Not how slick they are.

How many times have you heard that you have to work hard to be successful? Let me share a secret with you: the people who told you that are the ones who have experienced life as hard. They want you to experience it the same way so you could join them and they wouldn't feel lonely in their difficulty.

Let me be clear: the people who sell you on the struggle of life are those who -- by virtue of that struggle -- know little about how to make it. It's best not to take them as your advisors.

The idea that success is difficult or that it requires hard work is nonsense. If you are struggling, it's simply because you're not doing it right. You're lacking awareness. And once you become aware of what's causing your struggle and how to resolve it -- poof! -- suddenly it's very easy!

Think about this for yourself. Haven't you seen this a million times in your own life? Remember how hard it was to ride a bike as a child.....and then you became "aware" of what was required.....then, within a single day, you were racing your friends around the block and practicing wheelies. See, it wasn't really hard. You just weren't aware.

Look at the guy who types with the "hunt-and-peck" method. He's typing 7 words a minute. If he would invest a bit of time in his own awareness, he could type 70 words a minute without any effort at all. It's easy!

"Easy". It's not a bad word as some in our industry like to imply. It's a good word. The only thing that makes something hard is a lack of awareness. And it's true in every area of life...even making money from home.

But it's not surprising that we struggle, is it? There are some groups and individuals who have a vested interest in playing to the lowest common denominator. After all, aren't some of you already disagreeing with this little post on a message board? What would things be like if a politician stood up on national television and said, "Hey, this country is really pretty abundant. It's really pretty easy to make a lot of money. In fact, anyone not making $100,000 per year is going to be fined for lack of effort!"

That speech would go over like a diaper in the punchbowl.

And, from an emotional standpoint, people have a vested interest in setting their sights low. That way you don't have to do too much to get patted on the back. And if you fail....well, you didn't fail by much either.

Meanwhile, a smaller group of people understand that any challenges or frustrations they have are their own creation. A reflection of their own mindset. A result of their own lack of awareness. So, their solution is simple: they just focus on becoming more aware. Because, once the awareness is in place.....it's easy.

It's a good word.

So, don't buy into the attitude that says "Success is difficult and requires a lot of hard work". If you accept that as your belief, you'll most certainly experience that.

Why not adopt the attitude that success is easy and that you are JUST the kind of person who can start today and knock the cover off the ball? Because that's the real truth. That's who you REALLY are.

So, why not drop the story of struggle and hard work and start being who you really are?

Success is easy. Don't let anyone tell you differently.

The Simplest, Easiest Success Secret On The Planet

Someone asked me the other day what would be the simplest, most powerful concept that they could use to achieve their goals.

My answer was fairly simple.

"When confronted with a decision, always choose the goal that will put you closer to your goal, no matter how uncomfortable or how nervous it makes you."

No one hits their goal by going the other way.
