Want to know the biggest prosperity insight I ever learned? I learned a lot of them! But the most important insight I learned was NOT:
The greatest breakthrough for me was learning how to create true wealth. Which might sound strange to you, but it was the key. Because starting out poor and ignorant, I always assumed that if I could become a millionaire, all my money problems would disappear. So I learned how to earn millions of dollars. Not a lousy million or two, but multiples of that. And I pissed away enough of it to buy a small third world country, always figuring I could generate more.
But at some point, you tire of the game, the constant chase, the need to do it all over again every year. Sometimes you just want to heat up a Tombstone pizza, crack open a frosty cold Dr Pepper, and sit on the balcony watching a thunderstorm. Or take off for a couple of years and do a sabbatical. Or write a six-figure check to a charity without having to think about it.
While you do need to understand the value of money, and break out of poverty consciousness, and learn how to unleash leverage – those things will only take you to the point of generating cash, not building wealth. Building wealth is what gives you security, peace of mind, and lifestyle choices. More importantly, the opportunity to transcend success and achieve significance.
I tell you all this because you should know about a special livestream I’ll be conducting. The title is 10 Truths for Creating Wealth. It’s being presented by my friends at Cashflow Options PTY LTD in Australia. They’re offering the program to traders, but the principles I’ll be discussing apply to everyone who wants to build financial security.
And if you are in the first 1,000 people to register, the program is free.
Really. Just hop over here and reserve your spot. Then I’ll see you on the 28th or 29th, depending on what side of the international dateline you’re hanging out on!
