What level of this chart are YOU on?

FACT: most of the people you see every day are engaged in "survival-thinking". Only a handful are engaged in "success-thinking".

If you're not familiar with Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (pictured here), take a look at the bottom two levels. These are the areas that -- according to Maslow -- give you ZERO positive emotional payoff if you achieve them. But they DO give you a very NEGATIVE emotional payoff if you DON'T achieve them.

This is where most people operate. They spend all their mental resources thinking about food, shelter, clothing, and paying the bills.

They focus on how they're going to get from this payday to next payday. In many cases they're "robbing Peter to pay Paul"; that is, they're running late on their mortgage so they can pay their insurance.

And make no mistake about it: these aren't just people living below the poverty line. Some of these people are making $50,000 a year.

In fact, if you were to poll 1,000 people who earn only $25,000 a year, I'd guess that most of them would think that their life would be problem-free if they earned $50,000.

But it wouldn't. Why? Because they're so accustomed to "doing without" that they don't even have some of the bills that they SHOULD have. Like health insurance. And life insurance. And putting aside a portion of their earnings into investments.

So, when the $25,000 earner gets to $50,000 they often find that they're STILL not living the lifestyle they wanted. They're just operating at a higher level of survival.

Liberty League International is all about helping people achieve the top THREE levels of Maslow's hierarchy of needs; look at the chart. These are the areas where you not only have the basics of life handled....but you're finally able to focus on things that DO give you a huge emotional payoff.

You can spend time with your family.
You can focus on your art.
You can visit the exotic locations on the planet.
You actually have time to sit down with your child and watch them draw a picture.
You can sample the best quality foods, fabrics, clothing and experiences.
You can hire people to make your life easier (a lawn man, a nanny, a personal chef, a trainer, etc.)

So, let me tell you something you already know: you don't live this way on $25,000 a year. Or even $50,000 a year. And usually not on $100,000 a year.

Don't get me wrong. Everyone has to start somewhere. And any new step on that ladder is a step in the right direction. But, when you join Liberty League International and you find how simple it is to achieve a $25,000 per MONTH'll begin to find that the life you've wanted has been waiting for you all the time.

Where are YOU spending your time? On the bottom two levels of Maslow's chart?

Are you ready to create the kind of freedom and income that will allow you to tap into the top levels?

It all begins with a choice. Contact me for details and I'll be glad to share with you a very special mastermind group I'm putting together within Liberty League International that will assist you in achieving your goals.

I'll look forward to speaking with you!
