“Jerry makes plenty of money,” his wife Judith said when I called. “He doesn’t need your class. What he needs is more time to enjoy the money he makes.”
I had met Jerry when we appeared together on Paul and Sarah Edwards’ radio show. He was happily making large sums of money in his public relations business, but reacted strongly when I mentioned that my workshop was called Financial Stress Reduction. “I’d really love to keep making money but reduce the stress,” he said. “Call me and let’s talk about it.”
I called as instructed, and that’s when Judith let me know the real problem: Jerry’s work hours (24/7), his time off for fun (zero), his time with family (minimal) and her frustration with this situation (huge). I commiserated with her, then let her know that my class was not just about making money, but about having lots of time off to enjoy it as well. “Sign us up!” she exclaimed, and enrolled the two of them in the next course on the spot.
At the beginning of the class, they spoke of the goal they had put on their “Intended Results” list—to take a month off to travel in France with another couple. It seemed unreachable then. Jerry’s fear of losing clients was a palpable force keeping him chained to his telephone at all hours. But as they did the work of the course, they came to see that when they practiced positive thinking about money, sent out ships consistently, and counted the money to keep score, they could relax. The system worked and could be relied upon. Customers could understand—and admire—a commitment to family and balance. They could be alerted to the fact of an impending vacation and get their work in early. Reciprocal deals could be made with other professionals to handle emergencies in Jerry’s absence. As Jerry’s fear decreased each week, he began to relax.
He started smiling more often—and so did Judith.
They had a wonderful time in France.
Are you stressed about money - no matter how much you make?
Do you feel like you’re working 24/7 for the worst boss you ever had (and maybe that's you)?
Wish you could just figure out how to ensure that new clients will keep showing up and PAY YOU WHAT YOU’RE WORTH? And that you felt free and confident enough to TAKE TIME OFF TO PLAY AND TRAVEL?
I have the solution.
We’re all on the scale somewhere between nothing and everything—some of us are drowning near Zero and some of us are riding the crest of the Zillionaire wave. Why is that? What is it that makes some people stay at the bottom and others rise to the top of the scale? Or fall off the scale? Why do a lot of wealthy people have no spirit and a lot of spiritual people are broke?
All the information on how to be rich and successful is out there…isn’t it?
So why aren’t we rich already? Smarter? More successful? Healthier?
Because all the information in the world won’t help you unless you put it into the right action plan that works – and then work that plan. But how do you keep yourself on track when you hit your “issue” – the glitch in your programming that stops you from achieving your goals?
