I Have A Millionaire Mind! I am, four months into my journey with Peak Potentials and I can honestly say that I am no longer the same person I was when I began. I have been continually amazed at what Peak Potentials has done for me and how I view my world as well as the surrounding world, but this weekend at Millionaire Mind I was, once again, absolutely blown away!

Everything happens for a reason, right? Well, I know there is a reason I entered this company on a back end course and that essentially I have been working backwards through the courses. I had to see the possibilities before I saw the process. Man, the Universe knows me well! This was truly a unique experience for me though. Having been to 4 courses prior to the 'entry' course I got to witness first hand the transformation of people who are for the first time experiencing the possibilities life has to offer. It was SO exciting watching others get excited about the material, about the courses about life!!!!! And of course having been to other courses I was promoting them all! :) Why wouldn't I share the amazing experiences I had???

Millionaire Mind cemented the financial process for me. It got me very clear on HOW to get things started. When I have a big enough WHY for what I want to do then the how was simply shown to me! As well, MMI (millionaire mind intensive) cleared out all the crap people had fed me over the years about money. I didn't know then what I know now and so for a time their methods served a purpose in my keep me broke! The real zinger is that a great deal of people will retire with enough savings to last them for 10 does that mean the plan is to die before your money runs out?

I've never been a fan of working, of trading time for money. I'm gonna stick with a 3-5 year plan of working my butt off and working SMART so that I never have to work again...unless I choose to. Which I probably will because I will love my business so much I will want to expand internationally, but honestly....stick it to the man!!! I'm creating my wealth, not waiting 50 years for it to come to me!!!!

I've tried to share this with so many people and so many of them have simply brushed it aside or been downright negative and rude about it or they've been really pumped about it, given me their word and then bailed. Ya know, the part that makes me really sad is that every one of them has potential to be so rich, they all have wicked creative ideas, but are too fricken scared of them to do anything about it!

People have told me I've been brainwashed, but I'd much rather be brainwashed for success and wealth than stay brainwashed by society to work hard only to retire with nothing or very little! It kills me to think that people still believe the mainstream...where has it gotten them? I know where it got me! $40,000 in debt! There is nothing in the mainstream media or any formal education institute that can teach me anything about what I have learned in the last four months in such a short period of time!

So! Having vented all my frustration with 'mainstream' ways of being I think I'll leave on a lighter note. From this point forward there is no looking back, there is no procrastinating (if you have been to an MMI you will know the process I am talking about!). I am going to change the face of education as we know it. My goal is implement a 'real world' curriculum in schools with one facet being money management. Students graduating Gr. 12 will know more about money management, business strategies and investing than someone who has graduated from university! Ok, so that's a big job and I'll be asking for help along the way, and it will happen, no matter how long!

As I'm sitting here writing that I'm also snapping the rubber band on my wrist as my little voice is telling me "You're a friggen idiot for sharing that on the internet, now you have to do it because people are going to be watching for it." Damn right they are and now I have an entire audience to make sure that I do!!! And that, my friends, is a Millionaire Mind!!! (and maybe a Warrior... :))

Airport Adventures!

Well, after another amazing, life changing week spent with Peak Potentials and all their amazing students...I might say my new family, I have really taken a new perspective on my role on this planet.

These courses allow me to spend a lot of time in airports and I can't help but observe the many people that are lifelessly breathing. I like to call them the 'living dead'. So as part of an assignment, more a 'pay it forward' than anything, I have decided to revolutionize the way I travel.

It began on my return from Los Angeles in LAX. A young guy in his twenties was walking by with his carry on, hiding under his hood with the typical straight faced stoic look that so many people have at the airport. Well, thinking he was a good looking lad and that I'd probably not run into him again, he ended up in front of me in the security line. After an attempt to politely ask a question to a security guard he was answered with a short, curt remark rather than anything of relevance to what he asked. Of course I laughed...typical TSA.

So I commented, "Gee that was a pleasant answer." and he replied "Ya I love airports...everyone is just so happy." The smile came as did the energy and excitement that someone had talked to him. We had a bit in common! I had found a live one! So after starting a bit of a ruckus in security, snickering jokes back and forth and getting the TSA people to shoot us questioning stares we got out and headed to the duty free. I just want to add in the black gentleman who always happens to be at security when I am there. He actually yells at passengers before they walk through the metal detector!!! I'm really not sure what it accomplishes other than makes him look like an a$$, but hey, different strokes for different folks. Anyhow, why I was following him I am not sure, but he was fun, smiley and had about as much time as I did to kill before his flight.

He bought cologne, after I decided which kind would smell the best on him. We chatted up until the final boarding call for my flight and I left him with a handshake and a smile as well as a mission to wake the living dead in the airports he was going to be in. I was off to Detroit and he back to New Zealand. I cannot wait to fly again for I really never know who I might awaken!!! What fun!

Dreams of a Millionaire

When we were kids, we all said "I want to be RICH when I grow up!" I know I did because I was tired of always hearing "We can't afford that." I was going to make sure I could afford anything and everything I desired. Somewhere down the line we stopped really wanting it because the downers in our life told us to get real; is it because society promotes steady paychecks and dead end jobs; or is it because we really didn't know any better and forgot about that deepest desire to live a life of freedom?

Well, I know my desire to become rich has been re-ignited because I can see the possibility of endless riches for doing what I love. Isn't that perfect, doing something you love and making heaps of money with it? Sounds easy enough and it is SIMPLE, not easy. It takes hard work and lots of brain power to turn it something great for you and your family to have forever...that legacy.

But why have people put rich people on the naughty list? Why do people squawk at me when I talk about learning to earn more money (not even mentioning millions)? Why, in a time of crisis, a time of recession is everyone in denial about how far their money will truly go? And they say that I've been brainwashed...ya brainwashed to see the opportunities to make money while you scoff and turn your head as if you were the one with all the knowledge in the world and nothing to show for it! I guess the saying is right, 'the rich get richer and the poor get poorer'. It's not a matter of taxes, paychecks, lifestyle, it's all in the mindset of the money maker. Rich people know how to make money from nothing and poor people know how to not make money. (I use rich and poor to make a point, the mentality of rich people is just different)

So what do I do? Do I continue to engage in toxic conversations and debate the financial consciousness of our world? Do I forget the past and it's people and move forward to make new, more productive relationships with the more financially conscious? To be honest, it's about more than the money. It's about my health, my sanity, my success, my ability to grow. How long can one hold onto the grips of the past before it just drags them back into the gutters so many call 'just the way of life'. What will happen to my life as I know it now? Will my friends still be my friends when I have climbed to the peak of my success? How many bridges will I have burned along the way? The mind loves the comfort, while the heart yearns for change, for adventure, for a new world. Is it my ultimate goal to have friends and live 'the way of life' or is my ultimate goal to be the biggest success I can be, bring in the riches of love, life, money, health and happiness all while doing what I love to do?

I realize that people fear their own greatness, but it's that fear that will continue to bring them whatever it is that they are not happy with now. To my success and your success! May your heart guide you in the direction of purpose, passion and fulfillment. This world is ours for the taking, it's ours to change for the better and it's ours to reap the benefits, riches and happiness!
