Create #61: Money – the Lie Revealed
5 Free tickets to the LA Conference
I was just told they’ve decided to give the speakers 5 free tickets. I’d love to meet some of you.
Criteria: You must be 100% definite that you can and will go to the whole conference. And post on my wall at facebook how it will help you and your business:
How to Build Profound Connections With Your Client
Have you ever felt an instantaneous connection with a prospect? A connection so powerful that you instantly knew that this person would be your client?
How would you like to learn how to create those moments intentionally? You can, by learning the art of deep and profound connections. Learn more in the free video below:
Note: I thought this was a timely issue, so I have reprinted from Create #7
Summary: It’s probably not what you’re after at all (and you think it is).
When you’re clear on WHY, and HOW MUCH, getting money can be easier, and much more fun. Focus on the REASON for money! What lifestyle do you want? How much is enough?
Suppose you got clear today that your ultimate lifestyle would be to sail around the world visiting exotic ports. Would you work 20-30 years to make that a reality? What about having it right now, and skipping the 20-30 years of work? Would it be smarter to quit your job and get a job on a luxury yacht traveling the world? Is money as necessary as we were told growing up?
Have you fallen for the Trap?
We’re trained and conditioned that making money and accumulating wealth is the game. Many backpackers have learned a different one.
It is possible to live for NOW enjoying everything there is to enjoy now, rather than in the future. But what about the future you ask????!!
Well, tomorrow never comes. You’re always here.
The trap to watch is saving hard; working hard for a lifestyle that you could have RIGHT NOW if you chose! I realised that what I would do if I had a lot of money, is to live in New York for six months of each year, and on Sydney Harbour the rest of the year. Summer all year round! When I realized I don’t have to wait for this, I can have it right now, I stopped thinking someday my life will be complete.
So write down your ideal lifestyle – the one you’re working so hard for.
The one you would have if you won the lottery next week.
Do you already have these things now? If YES then you have NOTHING to do! Your life is perfect, start realising it!
Can you have these right now? If YES then it’s time to have them.
No waiting. Live for now!
If NO, then what’s standing in the way? If you need more money, then follow this process:
a) write down the reason you need more money
b) how much is needed for that and by when (the numbers)?
c) how will I get there (income expenses = savings).
Decrease expenses game? Increase income game?
Get clear on your ultimate lifestyle or goal. See if you can have it without money, and right now! If money really is necessary, get clear on HOW MUCH is needed. Only THEN, once clear on WHY and HOW MUCH, are you in a position to get that money, and to enjoy getting it!
Beware of sacrificing everything now, for a future that is unclear, may not make you happy anyway, and which you may not even live to see!
1) Write down your ideal lifestyle or goal.
2) Is there a way to have this right now, without waiting for more money?
3) If you get stuck, share your goal or lifestyle want at the blog. Maybe someone else has an idea that you hadn’t thought of.

I did www.mypartnershipseminar.com for the second time last weekend and it blew my mind – again. The very next day I had my first conversation with a potential sponsor – Microsoft. I’m now ready to approach 20 sponsors and another 20 non profits – ramp it up baby!
Life continues to be idyllic in my new rooftop office in Mill Valley, and I experienced my first “family constellation” – intense!
