Do you remember your first paycheck?

My buddy Art posted this the other day. It's classic. See what you think:

Profits are always better than wages. Never forget that. And if you've been getting too much of this reaction lately, then maybe it's time for you to check out Liberty League and find out how others are earning more in a month than many Americans earn in a year.

To your success!

Getting Ready To Kick Off the 2007 Summit Conference

Jessica, Easton and I just arrived in Sydney, Australia this morning to kick off the all-new Summit Conference.

Well, I say "morning"...but with the radical time change, my body isn't quite sure what time it is.

At this moment I'm writing this from my hotel suite at the Intercontinental Hotel at 6:32pm but my body thinks that it's 3:32 in the morning and is wondering "What the heck are you doing up?"

But, a bit of sleepiness aside -- Sydney is a marvelous place. We spent the day getting settled into our suite -- (great views of both the opera house and the Sydney Harbor bridge( -- and then we walked down to the harbor, did a little shopping, had some fish and chips while browsing the shops and came back to the hotel for Easton to take a nap.

We've got several days before the official event starts. This year's event will feature Bob Proctor from the movie "The Secret", Lynn McTaggart, author of "The Intention Experiment" and a firewalk right out in the Australian Outback. It's going to be an amazing experience for a sold-out crowd.

If you'd like to keep up with our day-to-day activities, visit our Australia trip site by clicking here.

And if you'd like to find out more about Liberty League and how we actually earn MORE on these trips than it costs to attend...then definitely get the details at or

" there a residual income?"

I was talking to a fellow the other day who's looking for a home business. He was working in retail but he didn't care for the work and wasn't earning much money. He worked at one of the larger department stores in a mall.

As it turns out, he'd heard of Liberty League and had attended a presentation call about a year earlier but never got started. I told him that I had no conversation for him on why he should look again....but that, simply, if he was interested in "getting out of what he's into" that this has certainly been a good financial choice for me. (A massive understatement, to say the least.)

And here was his response. "Well, I liked the idea when I looked at it a year ago. But, I guess I just didn't see the residual. Is there a residual income in Liberty League?" I told him there was and that he could certainly get a fresh perspective by attending another presentation call which he did.

But, here are two things that come to mind for me on this topic.

Firstly, here's a guy who is so completely brainwashed about "residual income" that he's made it his main focus for saying 'yes' or 'no'. Did you notice that? He knew that Liberty League was a business where he could make a six-figure income....but he didn't get started because "he didn't see the residual".

Now,....I'm not the smartest person in the world. But, I'm not sure how that makes sense. He'd rather work in a job he hated, earning less than $40,000 a year.....than to earn six-figures in a business because he thinks that there is no residual?

This brings me to my second point.

His question about the residual is a smokescreen. It wasn't real. It was simply the first excuse he found that would give him permission to stay in his comfort zone and not change his life. By finding an excuse that would let him NOT get started....he gets to stay in his box...not make any dramatic changes...and doesn't have to take responsibility for doing something that is different from the masses.

He gets to be "safe". Average. Ordinary. Like everyone else. And the excuse he chose to justify that decision was that he didn't think that Liberty League had a residual aspect. He might as well have complained that he didn't think the packaging of the product looked good.

You see, residual income IS important. It's what allows you to get paid over and over for work that you've done once. And in Liberty League, we earn ongoing, residual profits of $1,000, $1,500 and more.

Additionally, we earn also have the ability to earn more passive income in ONE WEEK than many people in MLM will earn in, say, a year. (I recently had a $19,000 week. Only $1,000 of it had anything to do with my own, personal effort.)

So, is residual income important? Absolutely! But is it the most important factor when selecting a way to create wealth from home? Not to me.

I love the residual income that Liberty League provides. But, if you'll ask me if I like the residuals better than the ability to earn a multiple six-figure income in my first 6-12 months, then I'd say 'no'.

Fortunately, we don't have to choose. Liberty League has both. And when my friend figures out that it's possible for him to earn a great income now AND build a residual income for down the road....then he might finally be willing to get outside his comfort zone and stop living small just to satisfy the people around him.

For more details on Liberty League's pay plan and the passive/residual me at 205-267-1033 and I'll be happy to get you some details.

The Number or, "How To Know What You're Worth"

Want to know what you're worth from a financial standpoint? Really. Do you?

It's very simple.

Grab a pencil. And some paper.

And on that piece of paper, write down how much money you want to earn this year.

Go ahead. I'll be here when you get finished.

Got it? Great.

Look at that number. That number -- to the penny -- represents EXACTLY what you believe you're worth. Not a penny more and not a penny less.

Now, someone might argue, "Tony, that's not what I'm worth. I'm worth a lot more than that. That's just the number that I think is realistic based on what I do and what I can reasonably expect in the next 12 months."

And your way of thinking is valid to an extent. But, here's what many people don't understand: it's actually that way of thinking that is creating your present results.

In other words, until you are willing to see yourself as earning, say, a multiple six-figure income....then you won't be able to see the opportunities that will allow you to achieve that.

I'll give you an example. Today I spoke with a gentleman who was looking to start a business that he said would pay him about $150 a day . So, when I told him that he views himself as worth $150 a day....he was offended. It made him uncomfortable.

But it's still true. This person is capable of earning thousands of dollars a day. I can see that. But he can't see that of himself. And until he does....then the most he will be able to earn is $150 a day.

On the other hand, if he could adopt the Million Dollar Mindset that this blog is devoted to....then he could very easily start creating opportunities that would pay him far more. But until then....God Himself cannot give him more than he's willing to accept.

Incidentally, I regularly partner with individuals and partners to show them how to create a multiple six-figure income in 6-12 months. But, I'm very selective about who I work with.

So, when this gentleman told me that he wanted only $150 a day...he disqualified himself. He knows better than I what he's worth. He sees himself as worth $55,000 a year. And I want to work with people who see themselves worth a minimum of three times that. So, without even realizing it, his mindset cost him $100,000 today.

And let me be clear: this is not a judgment of someone being good, bad, right or wrong. There are plenty of wonderful husbands, fathers, mothers, wives, sons, daughters, etc. who are wonderful people. And they are wonderful people no matter what their financial thermostat is set for.

But in terms of MONEY....their sense of self-worth is tied directly to what they are willing to settle for. And until they are willing to raise the bar for what they will settle for....then they will only get what they believe they're worth.

Bottom line: if a person with a $50,000 mindset takes an opportunity that will pay $1,000,000......that person will take that million-dollar opportunity and go make $50,000 with it. They will literally leave $950,000 on the table simply because they cannot accept it mentally. And until they accept it mentally, they cannot accept it in reality.

But here's the best part: whatever number you've got on your paper right now, you can change it. You can erase it or scratch it out and raise your bar right simply choosing to see yourself as worth what you really deserve.

Questions to consider:

What number is on your paper right now?
What do you really see yourself worth?
What are you willing to settle for?
What would it take for you to see yourself worth ten times more?

Life is a choice -- choose well.

The Box, or "Why You're Not Already Wealthy"

Everyone lives in a box. Your perception of "how things are" is your box.

Own a house? It's in your box. Got kids? They're in your box. Earning $43,565 at a job you don't like? That job is in the box. So is the $43,565.

Here's what else: if you believe you have to work hard to be successful...that hard work is in your box, too. If you think that you're not wealthy because of your lack of education...that lack of wealth is in the box. Along with your lack of a college degree.

It's all in there. Everything you have and accept as "how things are" is in the box.

Now, here's what's also true...

Everything you want from life that you don't already outside your box. And the "odds" -- in terms of the percentage of people who make the choice -- the "odds" are that you will never get to have what you want simply because your wants aren't powerful enough to overcome your insecurity of being outside the box.

Get that. Because that's the only thing keeping you from getting what you want: the insecurity, the fear or the anxiety of doing the things that will bring those goals INTO your box. Thus, success is simply a choice.

So, why aren't you wealthy already? Simple: because you haven't chosen to BE that person. You're busy staying in your box.

In fact, maybe you've decided not to be wealthy. You might think, "Tony who would decide not to be wealthy?" Well, you probably didn't say "I've decided not to be wealthy"....but if you're not wealthy it's because you have made the choices that do NOT lead to wealth. And it's really the same thing.

You are where you are because -- either through action or inaction -- this is really where you wanted to be.

In fact, some of you are reading this right now and you're appalled that someone should say such a thing. That someone would suggest that your "not being wealthy" has been a choice on your part.

You might even have a lot of "monkey chatter" going in your head right now listing all the perfectly good reasons why not being wealthy is not your choosing.

And here's the catch: the reasons you give yourself for why you're not rich is the stand that you've taken against becoming wealthy. If you are not wealthy, you will be defending your decision to remain in your current state EVEN AS YOU READ THIS. If you don't believe it...stop right now and listen to your mind chatter.

Fortunately, the solution is quite simple. Understand that you cannot get to where you want to go with the same quality of thinking that created your present situation. Change your thinking and decisions and you change your life.

Make your box bigger. Wonderful things are waiting.
