** Quick side note before you dive into this post…
I’ve been getting a lot of emails from people wanting to know when I’m going to open up the Fitness Marketing Manifesto.
I don’t have plans to open it up anytime soon, but when I do I’ll be sure to let you know ☺
Okay, the first time I heard the words “financial constipation” was from a guy who makes half a billion a year. I was sitting across from him in a very HIGH LEVEL mastermind program called the 25K group. (bet you can guess why they call it that).
Anyhow, I can’t tell you who he is, or for that matter who any of the other high level movers and shakers in the 25K mastermind are – but I can tell you that you many have heard of or seen some of these business elites on TV.
But this post isn’t about them. It’s about the four reasons why most people repel success.
1. Financial constipation…
Say that out loud to yourself. The word picture is clear, isn’t it?
I don’t know a single successful cheap person. I know of a bunch of frugal successful people… but that’s different.
Frugal is being smart with your money. For example: the wealthy or successful don’t buy boats and wave runners. Nope. We rent them, enjoy them, and give’em back. That’s being frugal… smart with your money.
Being cheap or financially constipated means you don’t invest the money needed to further your education in wealth creation.
for example; the financially constipated don’t go to seminars – they feel it’s too expensive. Instead they miss out on the information and the opportunity to network with others who can help double and even triple their income.
They’re too cheap to buy info products. Instead they waste time, money and effort trying to ‘figure it out’ on their own.
They don’t get coaching or mentoring from others who have been there, done that and know how to get there faster. Instead they jump from opportunity to opportunity losing more money because they don’t understand the difference between an investment and an expense.
Like I said… that’s the fastest way to repel success.
Here are three other ways to repel success.
2. Buy things and don’t apply them
This one is CRAZY. I know so many people who buy info products on how to get rich or whatever and never even crack the darn book or DVD case open.
Then there’s the dude who buys the info product, reads it and stops there. Sure he knows the information… but that it.
Knowing information is not the same as learning. See, learning is a CHANGE IN BEHAVIOR. Easy, right?
3. The thoughts that occupy your mind
What you feed your subconscious mind is what it will manifest.
You’re brain doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s imagined (I should know I was part of a study funded by NASA about 13 years ago that proved it).
If you spend all day focusing on how you don’t want more bills, and that you can’t handle more bills then your subconscious mind finds ways to get more bills. That’s what occupied your mind most.
Other mental cancers that force you to repel success are thoughts of doubt, fear and negative self-talk… again they force your subconscious to manifest the thoughts that you think about and feel the most.
4. The people you surround yourself and associate with.
If you haven’t read my hatters and crabs post yet you should. Basically, your level of wealth and success is determined by the level of wealth and success of the five people you hang out with the most.
The good new is that there are the ONLY four reasons why people repel success. That means if any of these apply to you (even if all four do)… just reverse them.
