Personal Power II is a 30-day audio program by Tony Robbins. I’ve been re-listening to certain days of Personal Power recently. Below are my notes for day 27 and 28, on, “How to Condition Yourself for Wealth.”
1. Negative associations to money
2. Most people never make HAVING AN ABUNDANCE OF MONEY AN ABSOLUTE MUST.
-Make it a priority to get massive abundance. Get a figure that you decide to commit to.
-The one thing that wealthy people all have in common is that they have a specific amount that they must be at, and they may very only a little amount. It becomes a MUST to be at a certain amount of money.
-You need to decide on a specific amount of money that you MUST have.
-Take the amount of money that would be considered abundant a NECESSITY in your life.
3. Never ever developing an effective strategy on how to build wealth in the first place.
-Strategy to attract wealth – that initial income
-Get your money to make you more money
-Strategies on how to share money so it gives you tremendous joy: link pleasure to making money and giving people things! Share that joy!
-Use modeling. Get role models. Find people who are effective and successful and find out exactly what they do on an ongoing basis that brings them success… AND IT IS A LOT SIMPLER THAN YOU THINK.
-Less than 12 months you can reach the 1 million dollar mark.
-Become like an investigator, study wealth, find where it goes, and make wealth your pet.
-Make developing money and earning wealth a value in your life.
4. Failure to consistently follow your plan once its setup.
-Some people dont get themselves to follow through every single day.
-People don’t work the plan – they never follow through
5. Relying on experts.
-Reply on yourself. Get to the point where you can make your own financial decisions.
-Become an expert in taxes. The tax laws are changing. Make sure you know what is going on there.
6. Financial Complacency
-Avoid becoming so comfortable that you stop paying attention.
-Those who do well with what they have will be given more
-You don’t have enough to not invest.
-If you don’t use what is given to you, you will lose it.
-If you don’t actively try to make more wealth, you are going to lose it.
-Consistent focus on creating, maintaining, and building wealth.
7.Allowing financial crisis to turn into financial ruin.
-There will be major learning experiences… Experience is the result of bad judgment.
-There are things you cannot control. When those things come, no matter how bad they are, you need to not let it be the end. If you let that happen it will be death rattle.
-The past does not equal the future. You must be able to bounce back.
-Take financial crisis and turn it into financial opportunity.
-Learning and taking action in a new direction that makes sense. It is in your grasp.
How to Accumulate Wealth ACTION STEPS:
1. Ask yourself if there are any beliefs that are holding you back
2. Make absolute wealth an absolute must
3. Find someone who you can learn from. Call, email, get in touch with someone who can help, and do this TODAY.
4. Practice this. Once you have the plan, get yourself to follow through consistently. Do a little bit each day. What we do builds upon the day before.
5. What do you need to learn about taxes, etc. And actually make a list of the things you dont understand and go find someone who can give you those answers.
6.Write yourself a sentence or two that will act as a financial vigil. Pay attention to your finances consistently. Don’t get comfortable.
7. Develop a belief within yourself that no matter what happens financially, YOU ARE MUCH BIGGER THAN ANYTHING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU FINANCIALLY.
8. Do something for someone else. Volunteer, donate, take some action and give back to your community.
Part 2: Sabotaging Our Own Financial Success
1. We do everything we do to avoid pain or gain pleasure.
-This situation that we are getting involved in, acquiring wealth, means more pain than pleasure is true for anyone who is living in financial lack.
-When people do really well financially and they are around their friends, 10K/month, and they were uncomfortable and judge you. Then your brain started to link up that having a lot of money meant rejection and pain.
-We MUST CHANGE our neuro-associations about money. Change our core beliefs. Earning money is purely a positive experience in our lives. For most people having an abundance of money is UNKNOWN. And the UNKNOWN is REALLY SCARY. People sabotage themselves because they are not ready to have money. They do not have the kinds of beliefs to allow to acquire that kind of money, and expand that money.
-We need to condition ourselves to acquire money. Condition your mind and emotions for money.
2.Way to get wealthy today is to free yourself of the illusion that you aren’t wealthy already. You own many government buildings, you have access to libraries, highways, etc. You didn’t have to hunt your breakfast, build your home, etc. You are wealthy. Like attracts like. If you think you are broke, you attract that. You are wealthy, and it is right to expand on that. If you are intelligent, is it right to expand and want to become smarter? Is it right to want a deeper relationship with the people you already know? If you could have more, should you? Absolutely.
You are creating a road to your dreams, and by creating that road you are allowing other people to get there are well.
How do we change our beliefs? Link pain to inaction, and lack. Not being able to have the lifestyle and freedom of choice. Things in your life. So painful, embarrassing. Get to the place where you have HAD IT. You are not willing to go through with it anymore.
4 Step Process
1. Write down all of the pain that you currently experience because you don’t have financial abundance. Being comforable = deathrattle in finance.
What are you missing out on?
-Not spending time with your family because you have to work a job
-Saying “someday” all the time.
-Not having the clothing to attract a mate
-Not having the money to help someone in your family
-Not having the money to fund the projects you want to try
-You cant send your kids to college because you don’t have financial abundance.
-Being forced to live in a neighborhood that doesn’t share your values because you dont have financial abundance.
-Not being able to have the relationships you really want because you don’t have financial abundance.
-Not having enough money to visit family.
-you have to tell everyone how much something costs when you buy it
-being told to cancel subscriptions because money is flying out of the house
-feeling like I have to justify why I bought something
-Feeling cautious before I buy something)
2. Write down anything you think of that you associate to money
examples: security, wider social latitude, peace of mind
3. Things you heard about money when you were growing up
no one will ever love you if you dont have money
we dont have money
you have to tell everyone how much something costs when you buy it
being told to cancel subscriptions because money is flying out of the house
feeling like I have to justify why I bought something
Feeling cautious before I buy something
4. List all the benefits if money was no longer a question in your life.
I would immediately buy all the things I wish I had
I would gain more confidence about my self-worth
I would feel free
I would contribute more
I would feel more happiness as I give more to others
I would feel accomplished
I would never worry about money again
I would be stress-free
I would have free time
I would have freedom to live wherever I wanted
I would be able to do whatever I wanted wherever I wanted with whoever I wanted as much as I wanted
I would no longer feel the pain of buying something expensive.
I could read more, and spend more time with people I care about
I could learn more skills
Just enjoy what I love most
Give without concern for the future
Go through limiting beliefs and change the belief. Attach a new belief to it.
Money Doesn’t Grow On Trees → That’s right it, because it grows out of the ideas that I generate everyday and follow through on that create good for myself and other people. (Say that over and over until you begin to link it)
Its too expensive → It used to be too expensive, but now its an investment in my joy.
Earning money is hard → So is being poor.
no one will ever love you if you dont have money → People may not love me even if I do have money
we dont have money → We don’t have enough stuff to buy with all our money
you have to tell everyone how much something costs when you buy it → so that you can laugh at how little it effects your financial situation.
being told to cancel subscriptions because money is flying out of the house → So we can purchase even more expensive subscriptions
feeling like I have to justify why I bought something → Feeling like I have to buy the most expensive items when I buy something
Feeling cautious before I buy something → Feeling carefree before I buy something
Money is nothing but a measure of the value I create for other people.
Every single day live in an attitude of gratitude for the wealth I already have. See a sense of possibility and abundance that is my life. That will create the level of abundance we want.
Focus on how to give more to others than you expect to get back.
1. Decide exactly what you want in terms of financial abundance. More than enough.
-Whatever you focus on consistently you will get. If you focus on massive abundance every day, you will get it!
2. Daily condition your mind for wealth so your brain is looking for opportunities for wealth.
-Say incantations over and over and over again running with all the intensity and feeling you can generate. Creating a level of certainty that wealth was a part of every cell in your body.
3. Get some role models(That’s how you will know what to do). Write down what you love most in the world, do it massively(reach tons of people), and make sure that in your doing it, it creates massive value for other people.
4. Experience yourself as a giver on a daily basis. Your believing in your gut that you deserve everything in your life.
-You deserve it because you are alive.
-You deserve it because you are a giver.
-Give away 10% of what you earn.
10 Day Challenge.
Condition your mind for financial possibility.
Everyday, write 3 ideas on how to make money, through a service, a business, or an invention.
-How many ideas do you need for financial abundance? Usually only 1!
