Bonus Day - The Story
that is worth reflecting on...
Good morning ladies!
As I promised, after each and every seminar I will share a story with you that is not only entertaining but extremely educational. So here is MY GIFT for you today:
This fascinating story will teach you about the importance of believing in ourselves! Sit back and enjoy the anecdote.
“Shoot for the MOON. Even if you miss, you will land among the STARS.”
- Les Brown
There was a business executive who was deep in debt, and could see no way out. Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment. He sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy. Suddenly, an old man appeared before him.
‘I can see that something is troubling you,’ he said.
After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, ‘I believe I can help you.’
He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand, saying, ‘Take this money. Meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back all that time.’
Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.
The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!
‘I can erase my money worries in an instant!’ he realized.
But instead, the executive decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there might give him the strength to work out a way to save his business, he thought. With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.
Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the executive was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.
‘I’m so glad I caught him!’ she cried. ‘I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.’
And she led the old man away by the arm.
The astonished executive just stood there, stunned. All year long, he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him. Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined, that had turned his life around. It was his newfound self-confidence that gave him the power to achieve anything he went after.”
CALL TO ACTION:

THE MAIN IDEA HERE IS TO KEEP ON WRITING UNTIL THE TIME IS UP, EVEN IF YOU FEEL THAT THERE IS NOTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD IN REGARDS TO THE SUBJECT. WHEN YOU FEEL THAT YOU ARE STUCK AND YOUR MIND BECOMES BLANK, THAT’S WHAT YOU NEED TO PUT ON THE PAPER UNTIL SOMETHING COMES TO YOUR MIND. BY WRITING WITH YOUR HAND, YOU MAKE THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR BRAIN WORK AND ALSO CHALLENGE YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND TO REVEAL IMPORTANT THINGS REGARDING THE TASK IN HAND THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN HIDDEN UNTIL THAT POINT.

You have now learned about how you can change your money blueprint, you also understand how powerful your subconscious mind is and how to rewire your thoughts if needed. You now know how you can break the time and money link and you also have a better understanding on how to create passive income. I shared a fantastic money management system with you that is so simple that even a 10 year old can do it – but that will no doubt change your life for the better. I guarantee you that if you start taking actions from today and follow everything we covered in this program, you will move much faster towards becoming financially free.
You need to understand that life is the most amazing rollercoaster you could ever be on. Now, the decision is in your hands. You could choose to be a spectator who does nothing but looks at others jealously; or you could jump on this fantastic rollercoaster – and start whooping with excitement.
So from now on, let’s live each day to the fullest, with clear awareness of what is important, and how fragile life can be. We all have dreams of where we would like to be, or what we would like to do. But more often than not, these dreams never see the daylight, simply because we don’t actively pursue them. Please, don’t let your dreams remain on the shelf. Bring them to life today. As you all know now, it is never too late to be who you are meant to be.
Life shortens with each passing day!
What are you waiting for? Start living today!
My very last advice to you is to learn to enjoy the Money Game!
After all, it is all a game, just like Monopoly. First you need to understand the rules, learn as much as you can about the chosen area, be creative, learn from your mistakes, but most importantly have fun.
I know I’ve already given you my quote for the day, but let me say goodbye with one of my favourite quotes of all:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness which scares us.
We ask ourselves – who are we to be brilliant, beautiful, talented and fabulous? But honestly, who are you not to be so?”
– Marianne Williamson
