Fostering Succes!

Today was my first action step towards success! I got myself into a school and presented real-world information to highschool students!

I took Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, by T. Harv Eker, and presented bits of content to about 60 Business/ Accounting students. I engaged the students using many different activities including revealing beliefs and setting goals. The content revolved around the inner and outer principles of success and why your mindset either sets you up for success or for no success. For a first time trainer I am proud of my accomplishment, but I realize I have a lot to learn and there are so many more students out there who want to hear this information.

I was hesitant to present the information because it's 'not my forte', but as I went through the presentations I became an expert on exactly what I was presenting. I had experienced this before; you learn more when you teach. I WAS TALKING ABOUT INVESTMENTS AND NETWORTH!! These are two words that did not even exist in my vocabulary 3 months ago! The best part was, I knew what I was talking about! Stuff just came flying out of my mouth and caught their attention. I never had anticipated that my goal of reaching and empowering students would begin with financial content, but thank you universe for providing me with the opportunity! Like I stated earlier, this is just the first step. What's next I don't know, but if it's anything like this "BRING IT ON!"

Never Work Again?!

I know it sounds like a joke, but 'anything is possible' right? I can honestly say after attending this course I now have a plethora of tools to put to use to find, create and earn passive income!

The concept is bizzare; putting in a little work and getting paid for it for the rest of your life if you'd like. How many of you think that vending machine owners are in their own little worlds? Well they are! They in their own little worlds living with the multi multi multi millionaires!!!!!

And you thought that people worked hard for their money!! Well they may have in the beginning, but now they just hire other people to do it for them. Why do you think Donald Trump has The Apprentice....TO HIRE SOMEONE ELSE TO DO IT FOR HIM!

I have recently begun my journey with personal development. I am growing myself daily to make sure I become the best I can be, to make sure that I am serving a purpose for the world we live in, to make sure that I can change thousands of lives. So I don't have a normal job, I'm not making much money (if any :)), but I'm putting together amazing things for children in schools, for parents and teachers. I mean, I'm now in the transportation business. I'm transporting people from where they are now to their absolute magnificent selves. And that I can count on to take me where I want to be financially, socially, emotionally and spiritually!

As I grow, I am more aware of those who are not, those who are living in the 'cookie-cutter' world of go to school, get a degree, get a job, get married, have kids, retire....Mirriam-Webster defines retire as 'withdraw from action'. Gee, and here I thought retirement was supposed to be full of action and excitement! I mean after all you no longer have to work!!!

At this Never Work Again course I just took, I noticed that some of the attendants had registered their son or daughters. So I strolled up to one of these youngsters and introduced myself. HE WAS 12!!! At a conference where the average age was probably 40! When he goes back to school he'll be speaking an entirely different language than his peers and his teachers!!!! WOW! This is what I love to see! Kids who are growing at a rate faster than adults, sponging up as much information as possible and taking it home and applying it! I plan to keep in touch to see how he's doing with his next endeavours, but I wouldn't hesitate to say that he'll have over $50,000 in passive income by this time next year from persuing one avenue of passive income. Now let me ask you this. Does he fit the standard 'cookie-cutter' lifestyle? NO!!! Do you?
