Today I have quite a platform, teaching people around the world about manifesting prosperity. When I made $11,000 a year, people didn’t seem very interested in my thoughts on success. Which was a good thing.
I often speak for free at jails and high schools, particularly to “at risk” teens. And invariably the result is the same…
They hear they have a speaker, and they sit back, bored, rolling their eyes, or locked up with legs and arms folded. Then the introducer says I’m a multi-millionaire, or drive a Bentley and Vipers, or something similar. All of a sudden, the energy picks up; the kids uncross, lean forward and look to me with anticipation about what I’m going to say.
Those kids wouldn’t even look twice at me if I drove a Camry. And don’t think most adults are that different. Which is as it should be.
You often hear me talk about the manifestations of my success. That isn’t to brag or gloat, but to get the attention of a certain percentage of people that need that wake up call.
One of the things I tell people often at my prosperity seminars is, “Stop taking financial advice from broke people!” So I think it’s important for people to know that I really am wealthy.
There are a lot of people going around to New Thought churches teaching prosperity workshops driving a beat up Ford Focus or Geo Metro. They say things like, “Well I haven’t manifested prosperity in the material sense, but I’m so prosperous in health, relationships, etc.” Sorry kids, that dog don’t hunt.
There are many elements to prosperity and money is certainly one of them. When you evaluate advice from someone, it very important that you also evaluate the results they have attained practicing that advice. The mentors you choose are really important. That’s where we’ll pick up tomorrow. In the meantime, please check in with your thoughts.
