Ready For A Change? Think Differently!

Please clear your mind of any preconceived ideas you have about anything.  Your ability to do this is the key to your success. You need to be ready to think differently. Why? Because:

If you keep doing what you've always been doing, then you'll keep getting what you've always been getting!

Open your mind! The way you've been 'trained' to think is your biggest enemy if you want wealth, personal power and freedom.

Why should you challenge the "norm"? Why don't we just accept things the way they are?
Well, where would we be now if the great people of the past had chosen to just accept things? Suppose the Wright brothers had chosen to just accept the fact that man was incapable of flying? Suppose Edison had listened to all the many skeptics who laughed at his invention of light from electricity? Suppose the great naval pioneers had just accepted the popular belief that the world was flat??

Worried about not being like everyone else? Well, if you think like everyone else does, you'll have what everyone else has, which is years of hard work and lifetime of debt!

If you want to be wealthy, you have to think like someone who is wealthy, and that means thinking differently without caring about what the rest of the world thinks about it. That's what this first level is about.

The wealthiest people in the world became so for the simple reason they were prepared to think "out of the box". Throw me the name of anyone who made themselves wealthy by their own means, and

Secrets of Success

A great injustice has been done. Lies have been told. Five secrets have been covered up by a minority through centuries of myth. A web of untruths has been spun and the masses have been caught up in it.

Why have a minority kept these five things a secret?

Put yourself in their shoes. If one day you stumbled across an undiscovered diamond mine, would you stand outside it waving a banner saying "FREE DIAMONDS HERE"?

No, I thought not. But it goes much deeper than that and far more sinister.

Corporations, the media and the politicians have been keeping you in the dark for many years, each with different motives to further their cause. They have systematically spun falsehoods to keep the majority of the population living from month to month.

Why should they do this? Let's look at each one's motives in turn.

The Media

Our beloved media?! Surely these people are the messengers of truth and have the interests of the population at heart, don't they? Err.......no.

The 'scoop' of the century will never be published. Why?

Because the only thing the media is concerned with is selling newspapers!

They are businesses and therefore by definition their sole purpose is to make a profit. To believe otherwise is extremely naive. By the way, the media covers a wide range of areas, from the internet to TV. They're all the same thing.

We like to think the media exposes any and all secrets out there. Yeah, right! The media is a major part of your problem!

The Media would be flat-broke without the truckload of money they receive from other large corporate advertisers who have a lot to lose from the public becoming wise!

Every day, corporations sponsor the nightly news. Is the media going to bite the hand that feeds it?!

You have to understand that the vast majority of the population is not as brave as you are. You have become a student of this course to learn the truth in order to create wealth. But the majority of people are afraid and would become angry and confused if they were told about The Five Secrets.

In other words, a newspaper that told people what they didn't want to hear would not sell any copies!

No, what the public wants is snappy slogans and 'sound-bites'. They don't want to know about the things I am telling you because it would unsettle them and would mean that they might actually have to wake up and do something. It's much easier to have someone else make your mind up for you. I'm relieved that you clearly do not fit into this category. As Jim Rohn once said: "Nourish your mind like you would your body. A mind cannot survive on junk food." Amen.

You will not see a television documentary about The Five Secrets for the same reasons. It would not make enjoyable entertainment because people would prefer to be spoon-fed a constant diet of topics that tear them away them from reality so they can bury their heads and live in denial and justifiable poverty.

The media keep the population in a constant state of panic and guilt by reporting on the latest 'hot issue' and many times the facts are completely distorted to

The Five Secrets

The Five Secrets

I am extremely excited for you! Why? Because I know that by the end of this course, you will be one of the few people in this country that is awake. As the rest of the population bumbles through life aimlessly, you will be free of the grindstone and happy. You will become fearless and free to a point you could never have imagined.

Through this journey, you will discover the best kept secrets of all time. That's no small claim is it? However, I have no qualms in making it because these secrets have been deliberately kept from you and are stopping you from leading a life of freedom.

Don't you think it's strange how most people have only just enough money to live from month to month? This is no accident.

It's like driving down a tunnel with no sign of light at the other end. The only thing that keeps people going is the fact that one day they hope to retire with a pension to support them through the remaining years of their lives. Depressing or what!

I've always had an inquisitive mind. Throughout my school years I was constantly in trouble for daring to question why to everything, and fortunately, it didn't matter how often teachers told me to just accept things, I didn't stop asking questions later on life.

This is how I discovered the fact five secrets have been kept from the population to deliberately ensure that they stay at the grindstone forever. A bold statement, but it is the truth. The revealing of this truth is the key to your financial survival in the coming years.

By the way, 'The Five Secrets' is just a name I have given this concealed information. To different bodies of people, they will have different names for it, or maybe no name at all. The point I'm making is that there is not a secret document hidden in the vaults of The White House marked 'The Five Secrets'! But they exist all the same.

Incidentally, I am a published author accredited with international book sales from Iceland to Singapore (

Myths and Secrets of Wealth

Knowledge is worthless unless you act upon it. If I told you what the lottery numbers were for next Saturday, what would you do? Why you'd run to the closest convenience store to buy a ticket!

This is exactly the same principle here. I will gladly tell you what The Five Secrets are but they are worthless and meaningless unless you learn how to use them. By the time you graduate you will understand how to use The Five Secrets to gain immense personal wealth and freedom.

I must admit to being very hesitant about disclosing the secrets to you so early in the proceedings, but I understand that there are some skeptics out there so I decided otherwise. The reason I hesitated is that the secrets will not have much meaning to you as a new student until you are further into the course.

Please resist the temptation to draw your own conclusions from what you are about to read. We have already discovered that to blurt out a pre-programmed response through complete dogma would be an act of one of the sheep!

To help you to avoid this temptation allow me to show you what the classic sheep responses (myths) are to reading The Five Secrets:

Myth 1)   "Well if it's that easy why isn't everyone doing it?!"

I wish I had a buck for each time I've heard this ridiculous question. It's ridiculous because it's completely hypothetical. The wealthy will always be a minority and they will always be so because the majority are too busy making silly excuses for inaction like this one!

Do you see? The masses are so busy being skeptical about opportunities they miss all the opportunities that come their way. And so they become even more skeptical about the next opportunity and the whole thing becomes a downward spiral.

The question is do you want to be one of the financially free?

Myth 2)   "Oh I already know that!"

Please! You may think so, but if that is the case, why are you not already wealthy? If you're hoping to skim through looking to pick morsels out here and there you will not gain anything.
Myth 3)   "That won't work- you can't beat the system!"
The only way you are qualified to say this would be if you had already tried to use the knowledge I will be giving you in the true sense and knew what the outcome was. As you do not yet know what the true sense is (because I have not yet told you) it logically follows that you are not qualified to say this.

The argument of a skeptic is often destroyed immediately by the use of logic. Beat the system? If you call the system something that forces us all to go to work in some form or another every day then you're wrong. Myself and many others are a living testimony to the contrary!

Myth 4)   "My friends say this is a waste of time."
Are your friends all wealthy? Have they used the information I'll be giving you here before? No? Then how on earth are they qualified to state this garbage?

There are two types of people in this world: Eagles and Chickens. Eagles are fearless and chickens live up to their name and live by fear. An eagle's first step to living the life of an eagle is to face all fears. And an eagle's number one fear is: What will my chicken friends think if I start to live differently?

The skepticism of others close to you is something I cannot help you with so it is best that you don't tell anyone what you are studying, their skepticism is contagious and threatens to condemn you to mediocrity.

The sooner the eagle flies the coop, the sooner the eagle lives the life of power and freedom he was born for!

Remember, the system is designed to keep the vast majority at the grindstone through lack of education. So it stands to reason that the majority of people you mix with will think all this to be a waste of time (read: "I can't be bothered to change my life and you're unsettling me by making an effort to change yours"). A wise man once told me to always mix with people who are more successful than you are. He was right.
Myth 5)   "Money doesn't make you happy"
Oh, people lap this one up, which is why so many films and stories try to portray this image. So often we're told this myth by storywriters; how poor people are so much happier than rich people and how money corrupts people. Story lines like these have subconsciously conditioned you into feeling some sort of guilt or hesitation about becoming wealthy. True, money isn't everything- happiness is everything and money plays a part in happiness by taking the pressure off, allowing you to leave a job you dislike and follow your dreams. That's happiness.

The purpose of your life is to find the purpose of your life, and financial freedom is your key to this goal.  

So often people (who are stuck in the rat-race) say to me: "Oh, I don't care about money." Say what?! So you spend the vast majority of your irreplaceable life working for money and then tell me you don't care about money?!

That's more than a contradiction. That's insanity!

Myth 6)   "Rich people have had to be dishonest to get there- I haven't got much money but at least I got it honestly"
This self-righteous falsehood is said very often by people who have mostly never even met truly wealthy people. I have on the other hand met many such people, and they are all simply very hard working and dedicated (myself included!). Indeed, to become successful, honesty and integrity are of utmost importance especially when it comes to customer service and business. They are prepared to make calculated risks but know that it would be foolish to short-change anyone.

Of course, there are some dishonest rich people just like there are some dishonest poor people, but this is just one more myth poor people want to believe to make themselves feel better about being poor. It comes back to facing the truth.
