I am using the tools from these workshops in my everyday life.
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?
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?
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.
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.
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 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 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.
THE MORE VALUABLE YOU ARE, THE MORE YOU WILL GET PAID.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
