The Cold Hard Reality of Money, How to Acquire It, How to Make It Multiply, How to Keep Everyone Else’s Fingers Off of Yours…
In the United States, the top 1% earn almost as much as the other 99% together.
Is that “fair?”
I’ve been reading propaganda out of Berkley saying that it’s not. ….That if the government put a much bigger tax on land, etc., that the “poor” would have a more equitable share of income.
What is Fair?
Income is something you earn…”wealth redistribution” ONLY causes disasters…there have never been exceptions.
(You can’t steal from someone without consequences to the thief and the victim.)
Social Security, Medicare, Medicade and other income redistribution plans are just that.
The government can play Robin Hood, but on a macro or micro level you can’t change behavior of those that refuse to work more than 8 hours each day, or want balance, or want anything more than they do than work.
So today, and for the next several weeks, please, play a game with me. I need your help for this scenario:
Imagine 10 competent, able people competing in a REALLY BIG reality TV show home. Men, women, parents, single folk. You and me are two of them. We all walk in the door having been obligated to quit our previous job.
Part One: The Career Choice Stage
There are 30 different jobs to choose from. 10 of them are sales jobs. Others include jobs as medical doctor, government worker, and so forth. We all get to leave the house to go to work but must return after we are done working. Some of us have babies and children in the house. Some of us have spouses. Some don’t…all the families live in this BIG house….
You and I are smart enough to know that there are only a couple of kind of jobs that are “secure” and have a chance to pay enough to cover the bills, taxes, and build some kind of a squirrel’s nest for when disaster strikes the family. (Financial planners who have never been through hell call this the “six month rainy day fund.” These morons have never experienced what disaster is. They have no idea those “six month rainy day funds” dry up REALLY fast and do no good for the next three years after the Dad dies. Maybe they’ll start prepping people to save for 3-5 year rainy day funds after reading this…
I don’t know about you but I grew up with the “knowledge” that the orphanage was a viable option if Dad (step dad) didn’t live a few more years. I’ve seen people who were in tougher conditions but not many with less money.
So, for you and me….
Let’s see there is…
Everyone else, of course, chose jobs that don’t produce a profit for the companies that will be paying their salaries.
That puts them at grave risk.
You and I are in sales, we have essentially little or no risk, although we do wake up “unemployed” every day, and we have a 10-12 hour day.
Nevertheless, our incomes are totally dependent on our work. So, if we produce 18x and we get paid proportionately.
So off we go into our world.
At the end of one year, you and I have earned $100,000. So did the guy who was qualified to be a doctor. The other seven chose jobs that weren’t income producers and they all earned about $40,000 per year. They had balance. They got to spend more time with their families than we did. Nothin’ wrong with that.
There is no doubt: Family matters more than anything.
After five years, we salespeople got better at our jobs and built our business portfolios and are now earning 300,000 per year. Still lots of hours by most people’s standards. Maybe up to 70 per week. Relationships at home are a bit tense compared to our balanced friends but we’re hanging in there.
Everyone else, except the doc who is now making 150,000 annually is still making about 40,000 per year. They have balance. They get to spend a lot of time with their families. They wanted a “life” and are living that desired outcome.
Five years later, you and I were consistent at our jobs. Our portfolios of business had grown to about $1,000,000 in commissions each. The doc is making about 200,000 annually and the seven people who chose the “balanced life jobs” are now making about 50,000 annually.
They think they are making more than they used to make…they are wrong. They are making less after inflation. But they don’t get that. They will be blissfully ignorant….for awhile.
Now that’s 8 people in the “room” that have a combined income of $600,000 annually.
2 people in the room have a total income of $2,000,000 annually.
You and I are earning about a million annually. The two of us earn about 82% of the money even though we only make up 20% of the population.
Obviously our dream is now opening up. It’s now OUR turn to love and live… We now choose to live the life we have always desired…
But even in this world, we don’t live in a vaccuum…
Now one of the ten in the room decides that this is “not fair.”
Guess what happens now?
A Change in the ‘Rules’
“There is no good reason that two people should earn 82% of the income. None. It’s wrong. It’s inequitable. And there is only one thing to do and that is increase the taxes on those who have money.”
You and I look at each other like this guy has lost his mind. He chose his job. He had his life of balance. He got his life desires.
And now he wants to become a politician and redistribute/tax (steal) your money and mine.
He argues, “Each year the wealthier get wealthier and the poor get poorer.”
You and I look at each other, “Duh, you don’t do diddly except balance yourself all day.”
“Therefore we will now VOTE to tax the two people at 40% while our 8 taxes will stay at 15% of our income because we live and struggle from day to day.”
An election is held.
You know a democratic election where the MAJORITY RULES…
You and I didn’t run for office, because we are getting ready to invest our life’s earnings and live off the interest and dividends with our family.
But hold on….you and I have lots of unexpected big time problems coming…
Because life just changed.
The majority took a vote…
We now will be literally paying for the other 7/8 people to party.
“Just like Robert Reich, President Clinton’s former Advisor said today, it’s not fair that income distribution is spreading.” you tell me…
You and I laugh.
You moron. Your “redistributed income” is paid for by my stress and exhaustion while you sit whining about someone in China….. And our Mr. Politician buddy here now has decided that he’s older, has no savings, partied his whole life, had lots of quality balance and family time…that you and I do NOT get to have those same things…well he’s decided that all of those personal life choices are water under the bridge…
So the plan is that the 7/8 will steal the 40% while you and I sleep and they will then go party on that. This is “wealth redistribution.”
Now think about it…If YOU do this and don’t “work” for the government it’s 10 years in the slammer…BUT if you work for the government it’s called “tax” and because the “majority voted” it’s OK.
Except it’s not OK. The 7/8 now learn it’s OK to party today and steal tomorrow. Their children learn that, they live that. A few will break away from the theft mentality but only a few.
The Game of Free Choice (and Playing Along)
Every person had FREE CHOICE to choose their job and their lifestyle 10 years ago.
They chose to party, have balance and have a total family life. Very reasonable choice. Nothing wrong with that choice. No judgment.
But now Mr. Politician convinces those that balanced, that where the 10 of us has come to – is inequitable.
Damn right it’s inequitable.
We lost out on 10 years of partying, familying and balancing. And now we get to play while the other 8 get to bust their butts and pay for the roads, national insecurity, welfare, art in the White House and other such necessities….right?
The majority is broke because of their decisions. And the majority has determined that although everything that happened to them was their choice, now it is time to make something happen to you and I…leaving you and I NO CHOICE.
“Allow us to steal from you voluntarily submitting or we’ll have you tossed in the whosgow.”
Now. This isn’t the way it was set up from day one.
From day one we lived in a free society. A society of choice. A society where women decided what to do with their bodies and where you and I decided to bust our butts to secure our future for our families.
But you and I were foolish about one thing…
In a tone reminiscent of Bill Murray in that magnificent 1981 movie, Stripes, we were STUPID enough to believe that the rules wouldn’t change.
And the new tax now goes from 15% to 40% on all people in the room earning over 100,000 annually.
The doctor is REALLY torked. He’s what’s known as “middle class.” The guy worked 55 hours per week. Worked hard. Lots of stress and now he’s got to kickout 40% of his income to the road and National Insecurity, and Spend at Will Fund.
He never dreamed he’d be the scam-ee.
So now you and I are earning a million annually and sending 400,000 each to “the fund.” That’s $800,000 between the two of us.
The doc has to kick out about $80,000 leaving him 120,000 for his work, almost as little as he had when he started 10 years ago (and less when inflation is considered).
He’s REALLY upset because he already has to kick out insane amounts of liability insurance, but again it was his choice. But it wasn’t his choice to have almost HALF of all of those hours stolen from him and given to someone who was balancing doing tai chi and hanging with the family at picnics.
His plan like yours and mine was to work while you are young and can produce most efficiently and rest when the work is done.
So, the 800,000+ goes over to the 7 in a BIG kettle and they get 100,000 plus in money per person.
But there’s more.
Adding to the Kettle
Mr. Politician decides to become a banker and suggests that we (all 10 of us) borrow TONS of money from our own bank. (It sounds convoluted and illegal but this is how it works.) Now obviously there is NO MONEY in the bank so we have to borrow little Billy’s Monopoly money…and the 10 do and IT goes in the kettle too.
So he borrows 500,000 dollars PER PERSON of the 10 (This is real by the way….2007…) and GUESS where that money is going to come from when it’s time to pay it back?
It’s starting to look like the 7 knew what they were doing. Party, balance and have the two pay for it when the decade passes…
But that’s only because the 7 think short-term.
Those 7 are in for an utter disaster that they can’t see coming.
The 2 see the tsunami coming and they go swap their remaining pieces of paper (money) for gold and stuff like gold.
That’s part of the Money Secret Part Two, where those who steal or benefit from theft experience what John Lennon called Instant Karma (except slower)….next week
The Millionaire Mind: Complete Wealth Package
The Psychology of Wealth: How the Unconscious Mind keeps you from money.
Whether you want to help others build wealth or do it for yourself, you’re going to need the information in this new and exciting program. The answer is NOT out there. It is not some metaphyical concept. It is real. The unconscious mind (the part of you that most often determines what you do in life) is not wired to accumulate wealth. This Psychology of Wealth Accumulation will show you how to change that…to re-structure your thinking for a lifetime of abundance.
Fact: The same part of the brain the keeps people from losing weight keeps people from great wealth!
I’m going to take you through your unconscious mind and and make sure every change you need to make takes place. I’m going to take you through a process whereby any doubts you have about wealth accumulation are either restructured to be used as leverage to accumulate wealth or as a tool to prepare for future challenges related to money.
Accumulating wealth is going to become a mind game that you win every time.
How you think at the conscious and unconscious level will determine how much you will accumulate. My job is to get you to instantly respond to money and how it is directed… in very specific ways. Once you can do this, it is remarkably easy to accumulate it.
Wealth is an elusive thing for most people. People start on programs to make money, and, much like losing weight, they fail within weeks. Here is a fact: There are critical factors involved and you will discover them all.
When you think about it…there are probably more get-rich programs available than just about any “self development” theme. This is NOT one of them. I’ve seen very few ways to get “rich” quickly that were legal…or even ethical.
I think one of the most important turning points of my life was when I discovered that I had (at the unconscious level) self-sabotaged myself. I had used and heard that term many times. Never did it really sink in that with some powerful processing, I could isolate those causes and “unhook them.” Once I was able to do this, accumulating wealth was just about as basic as accumulating dust. BUT none of it would have ever happened had I not ventured deep inside to discover just what was holding me back. This is what you are going to be able to do, by yourself in the privacy of your own home.
This program is unique in approach and more importantly, it works. This is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme nor is it a savings program. It is about changing subconscious conditioning in less than one month and literally accumulating wealth.
Learn the golden key to the thinking process that makes wealth accumulation possible.
There are 12 fears that run your life decisions and behaviors as they relate to wealth accumulation. You’re going to learn how to see these fears and begin to unplug them. Without uprooting the causes of making the wrong decisions at the right moments…people are going to continue making them … forever.
Kevin Hogan shows you how to go back, deep into your past, and find the critical sensitizing experiences that have dramatically shaped your life as far as making and accumulating money. (There is an enormous distinction between making money and accumulating it. It is quite easy to make money. It is substantially more difficult to accumulate it…a critical distinction that we make in the Psychology of Wealth Accumulation!)
This program will literally show you how to build a bridge from self sabotage to prosperity!
Discover counter intentions and how to change them to parallel systems of achievement. Less than 4% of people are been equipped to deal with all six of the psychological paradoxes that cause people to fail in growing wealth. The reason is simple. Most of these paradoxes are “new.” For the most part, they didn’t exist when you were a child. They do now. The roots of some of these paradoxes lie within the evolution of how you “experience work,” how you have built the beliefs about your life and your work and how deeply your programming about change has been ingrained into the depths of your mind. Now you will discover how to defeat all six paradoxes that are operating in your mind and finally move forward on your quest to accumulate wealth.
You will have the complete formula to accomplish reframing and begin adding the dollars to your treasure chests. And I’m going to walk you through the entire process.
