How can Personal Development Make Me Rich?

If you would like to make more money and be more successful in your life, then this may be the most important article that you ever read.
If you are already rich and you would like to go to the next level, then this will be the most important article that you ever read.

Would you like to double your income in 12 months or less?

Are you prepared to do what it takes to double or triple your income?

Let’s Talk MONEY

It is almost considered bad manners to talk about money. Talking about money has become like swearing in public – It is just not done.

However, if we do not speak about money openly, then how will we ever solve the puzzle of having more and everyone wants more…

We use money to get more of these things and it gives you the total freedom to enjoy them all.  
Making money is much more than having a job or owning a business. Money goes beyond buying and selling, profit and loss and margins etc… It is about your capacity to make money. To see a gap in the market and take it.

It’s about taking calculated risks and receiving the big reward.Are you willing to do what it takes to succeed, or are you willing to die broke?

Are YOU going to die Broke?

This is an important question to ask, no matter what your situation is.
This question needs to be answered honestly.

I know that you do not want to face this question or even answer it. There is a part of you that will deny the question and completely avoid the answer. Because, most of us answer this question with HOPE and no amount of hope will ever fix this problem. You will need to do something.

Unless you born into the royal family or have your own hedge fund, you will need to do something to prevent yourself from going broke and being a burden on your children, your family and the nation. The statistics are just too overwhelming to ignore.

A great question to ask now, is: How do I turn hope into CERTAINTY?

Well the answer to this question and many others are here.


You do not make the amount of money that you want to make because you are not ready to make that amount of money. You are not the type of person who takes advantage of the big opportunities.
It is not that opportunities do not exist, it is because you do not take advantage of these opportunities.
Question: Are you ready to take those opportunities?
The world uses money to keep score.

Money gives us a way to measure what something is worth.

Money is a way to quantify your work and the value that you bring to the market place.

The more that you increase your VALUE, the more you are WORTH and the more money you will get in return.

You do not get paid for problems, you get paid for solutions.

Your income will rise and fall to the degree that you get this.

The more problems that you can solve, the more you will get paid.

You do not go to the doctor to make you sick, do you? No. You go to the doctor because you have something ailing you and you want him to make you better.  You have a problem and he has the solution. The doctor gets paid very well for this, because, when you are sick, his solution is WORTH a lot to you. This makes him very VALUABLE to anyone with an illness.

The same is true for you: You do not get paid for problems, you get paid for solutions.

The Rich simply solve more problems than the poor.

The Wealthy have figured out how to turn these solutions into a consistent supply of value which they convert into money.

How many problems do you solve?

You see, you get paid for the VALUE that you bring to the market place.

Best money I have ever spend on myself. An experience with no price tag on it.
I am using the tools from these workshops in my everyday life.

So, how do I increase My VALUE in the market place?

The answer is very simple:

Increase your problem solving abilities. You will also need to improve your negotiation abilities, increase your focus and ultimately, boost your confidence. Of course there is a lot more to this which I cover in other articles.

This is much easier said than done, because we all think that we know how to solve all of our problems even in the face that we do not have everything that we want.

Or better yet, we think that we have no problems and simply we deny the evidence…

This is more common than you think and it is not your fault, because this is not taught in school.

There is no degree for this – Have you ever heard of a degree in “Problem Solving”? Neither have I…

School did not teach you how to raise your value. School did not teach you how to increase your self-esteem, your self-respect or your self-confidence and for sure school did not teach you how to increase your self-worth. So, how is it even possible to be successful?

Well, school did teach you some important things, like how to read and write and you gained some experience of what it takes to get yourself to the next level. School did not teach you how to own a company, but it did teach you enough to get a job. Now, this does not mean that you cannot be successful by having a job, oh no, we all have a job to do, even the CEO and even the tea lady. Large corporations are willing to pay big money for the most valuable skills, knowledge and expertise, but it is only those who go beyond this who become really successful. Only those with the hunger, the thirst and the drive to do more and be more will rise to the top. Some say that they are lucky, but luck has very little to do with this. For the successful, luck is the gap between preparation and execution. It is only when you take your own destiny into your own hands and do something about your situation, then you will be successful. Often times it is the unexpected that brings the greatest reward.

Your limiting beliefs are keeping you stuck

Your limiting beliefs are keeping you from your success.

Without you being aware of your limiting beliefs you will never solve this problem. You will be stuck forever. Your limiting beliefs are invisible to you and you cannot do anything with what you cannot identify.

I’m sure that you can feel it. You know that “something” is holding you back, but what? You can feel it, but you cannot put your finger on it. You do not know what it is, because you might think that it is something outside of you. You might think that it is your boss, your job, your spouse, the company or the economic situation or whatever? Maybe you just need that one special technique, that one special insight that magic button that you can press and everything will be solved? These are just your limiting belief talking… Your limiting beliefs are stopping you from doubling or tripling your income. I experienced this personally, in my own life and businesses. For the longest time I thought that this was just rubbish and I ignored this to my own disadvantage and loss.

Limiting beliefs come from limited experience and this limits your options.

I repeat: This limits your options…

It is time to set yourself free to have the success that you know you deserve.

It is time to stop making a living and start making a life.

If you want to get rid of your limiting beliefs you will need to gain more experience. You will need to put yourself to the test and commit to your success. You will need to experience more and become more flexible.

To make more money and have a better life, you will need to gain another very important skill– Requisite Variety.

Requisite Variety

Requisite Variety is your level of Flexibility. It is your diversity of options in a given situation.

Requisite Variety is a key skill to have in Business and in your life.

In fact this is crucial for you to get what you want in all areas of your life.

The more flexibility you have the harder you can negotiate for a position, a promotion, or an investment. This skill is used to strengthen your business relationships and your intimate relationships. The most successful people in the world have this skill.

Without this Requisite Variety or Flexibility, even those who, by chance do become successful, often fall and lose it all. The ones without this flexibility, suffer and fail to ever make it back again.

The more VARIETY you have, the more OPTIONS you have.

The more FLEXIBLE you are the more problems you can SOLVE.

The more problems you can SOLVE, the more VALUABLE you are.


We do not pay for problems, we pay for solutions…

What is the value that you bring to your market place?

If the situation requires you to be flexible, but you are not, you will suffer. If you are rigid or inflexible, you will not bend, you will break. This presses a button for many people and when I share this with them, I often get the response of: “I’ll show them” or “I’m too tough to break”. This usually ends very badly, for both parties and this results more in war than in peace. Neither side gets what they want.  In fact both sides end up losing and suffer the loss.

If this is you, then it will be very tough to deal with when you do not get what you want.

This shows up as a “breakup” of a relationship. The “breakdown” of negotiations, the “break” of a company and a “break” in society, because of the lack of this flexibility. Because of your lack to solve these problems.

To give you an example of Requisite Variety:

If you are running late for an appointment and you know 10 different ways to get there, you could make it on time. If the main route is blocked, you have many different options to take so that you will be on time.

If you do not know many different ways to get to your appointment and you are stuck on that one main route to your destination, you are stuck there until the traffic clears. If this main route is blocked or slow you will be late for your appointment and you may even miss your appointment completely.

How many opportunities could you miss, if you do not get this part of your life handled, who knows?

There is an opportunity for you right here, right now.

It is an opportunity for you to go to the next level.

Don’t be late for this appointment, it is too important.

Grab your spot on the next workshop. Don’t miss out.

This could be the most important appointment of your life.

The time for this is not later, the time is NOW.

I love every minute of it..this process really changes your life for the better and you will never look back..the love and support and new friends you make is priceless...thanks everyone...

The Harlequin Experience

Can you see how Personal Development is the path to your flexibility and diversity?

Can you see how Self-Mastery is your path to total freedom?

If you cannot see this yet, then you are more stuck than you realise.

If you cannot see how your personal development can make you rich, then you are trapped. You are trapped in your own rigid thinking and there will be a break down… I have seen this, so many times.
If you are smart, you will connect the dots and see what this can do for you.

The Harlequin Experience is special, because it is not just personal development.

The Harlequin Experience is Deep Inner Transformation.

It is Premium Personal Development. It is the Number One Personal Development Programme in South Africa.

This Programme tests you and shows you how to be flexible. It opens your mind to brand new possibilities. It shows you what you may be missing and gives you what you need to fill the gap. Through the workshop you will discover so many ways to create value that you have never considered before that it will leave you speechless. You get step by step, HOW TO charts to navigate through the difficulty, with individual coaching and Q&A for maximum results.

You will get a stack of brand new ideas and opportunities with so many options and possibilities, it will blow your mind.

The Harlequin Experience is a complete Self-Mastery Programme.

The lack of money is not because of the lack of opportunities or resources. It is because of the lack of being resourceful and not seiszing the opportunity.

I see this so often when my clients do the following:

It is not about resources, it is all about being resourceful.

To become the type of person who makes more money, you have to work on yourself.

Then, when you’re ready to make more money, you will.

Some bonus material for you. I have included a few lessons from “Being a Millionaire”.
These are habits of highly successful peak performers and these are the components to their success.

Some bonus material for you. I have included a few lessons from “Being a Millionaire”. These are habits of highly successful peak performers and these are the components to their success.

Habit number 3 of “Being a Millionaire” is:

#3.Be Proactive

This means having the ability to control or create a situation rather than just responding to it AFTER the event has happened. This basically means that you need to be a forward thinker. Having the ability to think about what is coming and then anticipate the future is critical. When it comes to money, this skill is priceless. How many very large organisations have gone under because they did not anticipate the future? How many organisations have been devoured by small start-ups because they did not adapt early enough and they thought that they were too big to fail?

Humans do the same thing in their lives, we do not move, we do not look to the future, we are not proactive. We wait. We wait for someone else to fix the problem, we wait until the problem or the situation it is too unbearable, then we do something.
My suggestion is do not wait. If you do the work upfront you will never worry about money again.

This is how the big corporations and highly successful, rich entrepreneurs make their BILLIONS.
They are proactive, they anticipate what the world markets will want and need in the near future and they go about making it for us.
I personally witnessed the innovation of 3G mobile technology, Five Years before it was released to the public. Five Years before it became common knowledge. I wonder what is going on now that we will only know about it another five years’ time.

The world is moving so fast. There will be jobs in five years that do not even exist at the moment. It is said that the majority of university attendees are studying for jobs that will not exist anymore once they graduate.

Being Proactive is a skill that you can use everywhere, in your business, your relationships and your health.

Imagine having the ability to predict an argument with your spouse days before it occurs and then avoiding it?
Imagine being able to predict a turn in the market and adjust course in your job or business to avoid being retrenched, fired or having the company go belly up?

This is defiantly a skill that I learned through personal development and a skill that you will learn through The Harlequin Experience. In a way, your future depends on it.

A message from the rich and famous

Unless you have been in a cave somewhere, you would have heard about the following famous people who have made a fortune investing, innovating and just being amazing role models for their personal development efforts.

Warren Buffet is not someone whom I associate with personal development, however what I discovered illustrates what this article is all about: Personal Development can make you Rich.

Warren Buffet is one of the most successful investors of all time. He is an investor, not a personal development guru. Warren is currently worth $75 Billion.

Let’s put that into words for effect: Seventy Five Billion Dollars. Now convert that to Rands…

Even if you are already rich, this is a lot of money…

Now let’s hear what Warren has to say about investment: “The best investment that I ever made was not in a stock, not in a business, not in an idea or a financial asset. The best investment that I ever made was in a class. A personal development workshop.”

Anthony Robbins is a brilliant example of this.

There was a time where Anthony was down and out and he was starving. It’s true. He had no money to buy food and he had to go to his local supermarket and walk around eating food inside the supermarket. No one wanted to take him to lunch when he needed it the most. When Robbins was 17 and earning $40 a week, he spent $35 (almost a week’s wage) for a three-hour seminar with personal development coach Jim Rohn.

The workshop taught Robbins that the most important work that he could ever do, in his life, was to work on himself.

Quote from Tony Robbins: “Jim Rohn made me stop focusing on what was outside of my control… And taught me to how to focus instead on what I could control,” Robbins writes in his book “Money: Master the Game.” “I discovered that I could improve myself; I could find a way to serve, a way to do more, and a way to become better, a way to add value.”

Tony Robbins went from working as a janitor to being a multi-millionaire selling what he used to become successful – personal development. If you are still a doubter, watch any of his live or reality shows where he changes someone’s life in front of your eyes. – This stuff just works.

Robbins tells Tim Ferriss (another famous development author): He heard Buffett say that “investing in yourself is the most important investment you’ll ever make in your life.” And Robbins agrees.

All of these legendary businessmen (Tony, Warren, Tim, Richard, Jim, Earl, and Marry-Anne, Jack, John and so on and so on) they all say the same thing. “Investing in your personal development is the best investment that you can ever make.” “There’s no financial investment that’ll ever match it, because if you develop more skill more ability, more insight, more capacity, that’s what’s going to really provide economic freedom. … It is the personal development skill sets that really make it all happen.”

Do not take my word for it, take theirs…They clearly know what they are talking about.
Personal development gave me what I needed to get out of the corporate world and “retire” at 28.

I am a walking, living, breathing product of what I do.

I am not saying this to be the example or to brag. No, I do not want you to be like me, I want you to be you, the best version of you. I am simply saying this, because I know that humans want proof and that you may be sceptical and you should be. There is a lot of rubbish out there. It has become common practice to sell snake oil, full of empty promises. They talk a big game, but all you get is smoke and mirrors. There are some personal development programmes which do cause damage and I have had to repair a lot of that damage.

In the back of your mind you are looking for proof. You are looking for certainty. You want to know it this is real and you are looking for evidence. You want to know if I care about you and if this will work for you? I care more than you know. I want you to succeed, I want you to be happy. I want your life to work for you.

This programme works, this system and methodology works. It works to the degree that you use it. It has worked for me and it will work for you. It works for every single person who uses it. If it does not, then I insist that you get your investment back. I’ll even give you 200% back.

Personal development is a sure fire way to increase your advantage.
There are so many more ways for you to make a lot more money and double or even triple your income.
If you would like to get deeper into this, you can book a consult with me and I’ll take you through all the ways that you can improve your skills and make a lot more money.

Hit the “Book a Consult” button which will send me an email and the office will contact you to make your appointment.
If you do not get your financial life in order and soon, the reality is that you may never get a chance to retire or even sit back and enjoy the fruits of your lifelong labour.
I am very sure that every street beggar did not start out with their life goal to stand at a busy intersection, in the blistering sun, waiting for someone to take pity on them and give them a hand out. This is an appalling situation for anyone to be in and it can be prevented.

If you do get your financial life in order you will be able to do the most important things in your life. You will have the freedom to do whatever you want, to go where ever you would like to and be associated with the kinds of people that you would like to be around.

Money is Important

Making money is such an important factor in modern life.
It gives you the ability to do more and have more.
Without money it is very hard to achieve certain goals in your life.
There is a belief out there that money is not spiritual. I tell what, there is nothing spiritual about being poor and some of the richest people on the planet are spiritual leaders, do not tell me that money is not important.

Money is not the be all and end all to everything, no it is not, but let us not make the mistake that money is not important.
Money actually gives you the resources to contribute, it gives you the ability to become a leader.

Money carries a message and my message to you is: I want you to make a lot of money, I want you to contribute. I want our entire country to become rich and never have a recession again.

If you do not get this area of your life handled you will not be able to achieve the things you want to achieve and be around the people you would like to be associated with.
If you do not have money, you will not have the influence that you desire.
You will not have the power to change certain things in your life.
Without money you will not have all the physical possessions that you want.
Without money you will simply not have the certainty and significance that you so desperately crave.

When you have a lot of money you have certainty and you have liberty.
In other words, you have the ability to buy whatever it is that you want to buy, without even thinking about it.
Money can help you get into the right situations, the right places and get around the right people.
With money you gain status and with this comes the significance of being able to affect the world around you and you can provide for your family and loved ones.

There are many advantages to being rich.
When you have a lot of money, be prepared to receive better homes, cars, clothes, food, and friends. You will receive much power when you commit to your wealth.
Money is being printed for you constantly, right now. Make sure you take hold of yours today. Money is the tool that allows you to become more of who you are.
Stop “coping”, stop “surviving” and start “thriving”.

Being Rich Begins with your Mind-Set

Being rich is really a state of mind, more than it is a Rand or Dollar amount. Because based on your mind-set you will either be rich or poor, now do not fool yourself with this, justifying that you do not want money does not make you rich, it actually keeps you poor – Stop that.

Have you ever wondered why you are not making as much money as you would like to?
Have you ever being overlooked for a promotion?
Have you ever felt anxiety about a job or a position?
Have you ever walked into an interview and felt the pressure of being questioned?
Have you ever felt under pressure in an enclosed space?
Has the pressure to perform in your job ever had you work extra-long hours?
Have you ever experienced your manager or boss being unfair and felt like they are blaming you for everything that has gone wrong?
Have you ever been the boss and felt like you were not respected and that you were being undermined and stabbed in the back? Why?

If you have experienced any of the above statements, then you will need to look into personal development to solve these dreaded diseases. Because all of these feelings are not due to the job, your boss, the money or any external factors. They are due to your internal state and representations of what they all mean to you.

These feelings are not dissolved with degrees or a job title. The irony is that these feelings do not go away, even when you are rich or are financially free.
These feelings are evaporate with high Self-Confidence, high Self-esteem and high Self-Respect. This comes with knowing who you are and what your value is.
Look at the most successful players from around the world, they all have these qualities and they would not trade them for all the money in the world, because with these qualities they can re-make their fortunes, without them, they could not.

Often times I have conversations with some very smart people who have amazing ideas to generate income. Some of these ideas are worth hundreds of millions, but they fail to launch because they lack the self-confidence to execute and claim their financial freedom.
If you really want to take your life and your income to another level, you need to get your internal world handled.


There are so many ways that The Harlequin Experience can make you more money. I could write a very thick book on them. I know that you are hungry for more, so, here is another one.

Be competitive with previous versions of yourself

Be in competition with yourself. That’s right, with yourself.
Do you think that Usain bolt would have ever broken the 100 metre sprint record if he was not in competition with himself? The same can be said for Michael Jordan, Elon Musk and Bill Gates etc… They do not stop. For them it is a game of constant improvement. They know that if they slow down or stop, that they will be overtaken and dropped from the race. There comes a time where there is no other competition left, beside themselves. This is also true for you. Be competitive with yourself.

Spend at least a third of your time with people who are better than you, who are smarter than you, who have what you want. Associate yourself with the people who have solved the problem that you have and will have in the future. This will ensure that you solve those problems upfront and avoid the crashes in the future.
This will really set you apart from the crowd.
Of course there are things to do in the physical world and there is so much more. At least you have realised that your highest leverage is in your head. In your thoughts.
The most famous book on this is Napoleon Hill’s “Think and grow rich” and he’s message is clear.
The more you can think and act on that thinking (acting on it is the key) the more you will be successful.
The more you think about ways to improve, the more you will improve. The more you learn, the more you can learn.
Learning produces ideas and good ideas are like rabbits, they multiply.

The inevitable statement: THE MORE YOU LEARN, THE MORE YOU EARN.

You need a method, a system, a strategy.

We all need a HOW.
Talking about the concepts and the philosophy is great, but how do you do it?
You need to get down to the nitty-gritty.
You need to get to the doing and we all need a HOW TO.

For the context of this article, The Harlequin Experience is the best “HOW TO”.
It is more than a how to, it is a direct experience and practice of these concepts.

When it comes to personal development The Harlequin Experience is the best System, Strategy and Method that I have encountered. It has been around for 29 years and over time it has been refined and improved.
I have introduced the latest Learning and Teaching technologies. That’s right this has now become a scientific method and is being regarded as a technology. I incorporate all four learning systems with the combination of information and experience, so that you can apply the information right away, even before you leave the course room. I am astounded at our results each and every time.
After every single workshop, the feedback that we get goes beyond all of our expectations.
We are constantly blown away be our members. Hearing their stories of how they have used the skills that they gained through the process is amazing. From healing their relationship, being a better father, mother, parent, healing an illness and ending their life long depression all the way to being a better boss, employee and business owner etc…

If this experience could save your company or your job, would that be worth it?
Would you pay R10 an hour to get a R1000 worth of value in return? Of course you would, any clever or smart person would.

I truly wish the best for you and our country. I want you to succeed. We are so confidant in the results that we produce that we are willing to make you the most outrageous and best guarantee in the industry. We have created various package options to best suit you, packed with bonuses and complete with our 200% money back guarantee. That’s right, if this is not worth the amount of your admission, then we will double your money. You will still get all the bonuses etc… and you will get the experience for FREE. It is a no brainer, you can’t lose.

T’s and C’s apply.

Doing this Experience is ABSOLUTELY worth it and there is no no Regrets!  I Feel free again.  I feel Ruan again.  Yes the simple, crazy and unique person that I was and still am, just came back to the surface.  We live in a world that is trying to control us.  In our work, In our relationships, In our private life, in our everyday life.  We need to take charge of those elements.  I am not saying do irresponsible things.  We still have responsibilities yes.  Take charge.  Make change.  Set your Mind right.  Not everything will go your way truth be told, the thing is...  What are you going to do to make it better and to make it to the best you can?
The Harlequin Experience
If there is one thing I've learned over the years, it's that it only takes one moment to change your life forever. To change your perspective, colour your thinking and force you to re-evaluate everything that you think you know.  To ask yourself tough questions like Do you know who you are? Do you know how your past experiences shape you? Is this how you want to live? The Harlequin experience was that moment for me. Up to then I've never experienced so much love and support from complete strangers whose only goal was to see me succeed. These days life is hard and wonderful and completely authentic. I wouldn't have it any other way.
