Financial Independence is a Thought Process

Americans have suffered from an epidemic of financial victimization due to a directed misdirection in our thinking process. Thomas Edison said: Five percent of people think. Ten percent think that they think; and the other 85% would rather die than think.

Leonard Read who was one of the great thinkers in the Austrian economic theory said: Many people believe they are thinking when, actually, they are only rearranging their prejudices.

Throughout history mankind has constantly sought to improve the standard of living. This has led to many incorrect thought patterns that have been promulgated and passed along. Some of these thoughts have been intentionally developed to mislead the masses in order to perpetrate an economic victimization of the society at large.

With all of this knowledge at our finger tips Americans remain in an economic cycle of scarcity and want. In the richest nation in the history of mankind we still somehow have the highest rate of financial illiteracy in the universe. How can that possibly be? It’s all in the thoughts we have allowed to penetrate and permeate our mind with.

In an open society such as we are blessed with the concept of opportunity is abundant. There is and never has nor ever will be a shortage of opportunity in the wealthiest nation in the universe. Yet with this absolute fact, a universal law; we still live in a society where only 5% of the population achieve unusual success. Of course many, many have asked the simple question of why and always the answer has remained the same the simple truth that we become what we think about. Aristotle told us: We become what we repeatedly do, excellence therefore is not an act, it a habit.

In the bible Jesus told us that “As a man believeth so it is done unto him” There is much more evidence to be found in all the great philosophers, religious leaders, military leaders, politicians and teachers all of whom have discussed the universal law of cause and effect. It is in this law that exists the truth of how our minds determine who and what we become and how we accomplish the dreams, desires and goals we set for ourselves.

Nowhere is this more evident than in our financial lives. While 5% achieve unusual success, the other 95% somehow wallow in financial independence and a lack of belief in financial independence. Non-belief is the direct path to financial dependence. Just take a look at how the vast majority of Americans are raised to think about money.

We all started in grammar school and whether that was public or private we were indoctrinated into a thought process of hard work being the foundation to any future success. It would all come through hard work and effort and as we all had the opportunity to determine our futures it would be hard work and effort that separated us from the crowd. That was further directed into a belief that we should complete an education, get a job/career and then spend our time in that commitment until we RETIRE and then move onto a life of leisure and relaxation. This was sold to us as the American dream. Now, we never questioned who the true beneficiary in that American dream was. We were perfectly happy to accept the lessons or lack thereof on the reality of money. Can you remember any discussion of financial literacy throughout the first 12 years of a so called education? You can’t, and that is because there was no such lessons to be taught. Even when entering college, unless you became a finance major you still received no financial literacy education. I hate to expand on the reasons why, but one can safely assume that it wasn’t an oversight, it was a designed educational determination.

The history of money is a well worthwhile education and those who complete this education are the ones most prepared to rise into the top 5%. That could easily be a top 20% stat if more people would simply come to the direct awareness of how to think as opposed to what to think. By changing how you think all the difference can be made for the exponential growth into financial independence.

The first step is to become aware of the how the process works. Once that is accomplished one need only use the strategies and tactics that formulate the process.

The Advocacy Network provides the awareness, financial literacy education and the personal help that drives people to financial independence. This is a development of a thought process which continually makes smart decisions about money. The 5% reality is living proof of a massive lack of proper thinking. The 95% get stuck in the sad cycle of conformity and they are not conforming those who are successful but conforming to the masses who are unwittingly locked into financial dependence.

You can step outside the boundaries and become financially independent much easier than you realize. There are financial solutions which will rip you out of the fabric of fiscal conformity which dooms us to financial dependence. We have a foundation of financial solutions which establish financial independence. If you continue to do the same things over and over while expecting different results you sadly are suffering from a form of insanity. It’s a common form of insanity which the 95% always suffer from and have sadly been mired in denial about.

Let’s discuss how to break out and eliminate all forms of financial victimization, while opening your opportunities for financial independence. It’s not complicated and truly much easier than you would ever think possible.

Self-Talk Your Way to Failure

Recently I reviewed some studies that say 77% of self-talk is negative. That’s a bit stunning when you consider how important self-talk is to one’s daily being. The entire concept of self-talk is what becomes fired into our sub-conscious mind. The reality of thought and action comes directly from the messages in our sub-conscious.

Earl Nightingale said: What we plant in our sub-conscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.

The powering of our subconscious mind comes from our self-talk and once programmed the subconscious will work overtime to manifest what it believes you desire. It has no concept of real or imagined, good or bad, right or wrong. It only knows what you told it you want and its mission in life is to give you exactly what you want.

Over many years I have benefitted from keen awareness of this so called secret. It’s not a very well-kept secret but is clearly protected because so few people choose to become aware of it. Even when aware most people don’t believe in it, they remain skeptical and choose to continue doing the same things over and over all the time expecting different results.

Now, I decided to ask myself “how does self-talk create victims?” As such it dawned upon me that victimization wasn’t simply an action it was a habit. And as all habits are prone to do it is ingrained. Financial victimization is epidemic in our nation. Proof of this is all around you. Consider the reality that we are the richest nation on the planet (no other nation is remotely close), in fact many studies have said that we possibly control over 80-90% of the world’s wealth. On the other hand we also have the highest rate of financial illiteracy in the world. How can this be? Is it somehow possible that Americans are just luckier than any others in the world? I can attest to the fact that it has nothing whatsoever to do with luck.

The primary essence of success is a mindset that understands failure and the great powers in many failures. There is no success without failure. Sadly many have joined a conformity that is perpetrated upon the premise that failure is bad and should be avoided at all costs. This is commonly referred to as mediocrity and our society is mired in it.

The great American dream was always promulgated upon the opportunity to attain substantial wealth based upon the dreams and desires one creates in their mind’s eye. This has always and still does exist, yet the shades have been pulled down to eliminate the light of abundance and opportunity. It is replaced with a pursuit of security. The pursuit of security begins with a small handout, it could be a government subsidy or a form of continued employment. Either way it becomes a yoke which often burdens one with a lack of opportunity. No one reaches financial independence through the pursuit of security, just doesn’t happen. The two are diametrically opposed. Entrepreneurial spirit is one of risk taking and it also is one of pure sacrifice and commitment. The cavemen originally showed this personal initiative and provide us with the ability to survive. It is commonly referred to as the flight or fight syndrome. The stark reality is that 5% of the population is financially independent and the other 95% chooses to flee when the fear of success lights upon them. Their self-talk directly condemns them to the fear of failure and as such they never cross the divide of failure and success.

This can be changed, but it takes personal integrity and great risk tolerance. No running when fear of loss knocks on the door. No avoiding failure when it appears. It requires changing the thoughts one allows to linger in the mind and also a pure self-confidence in all one undertakes.

Presently there is a massive financial epidemic which is directly the largest form of financial victimization in our society. This epidemic is known as Reverse Compound Interest Syndrome and all are suffering from it. Our mission at the Advocacy Network is to fully eliminate financial victimization is all its forms. We accomplish this through promoting awareness, providing financial literacy education and lastly helping as many people as possible achieve financial independence.

Let’s work together to change lives and provide the truth of the American dream once again.

Debt By the Numbers

I was hoping to shed some light for all on just how ridiculous and unfortunately destructive debt really is. Today at this moment (and I say that because each moment the number changes by $100’s of thousands) the US debt is 20 trillion + numerically that looks like this 20,000,000,000,000 how about that number? Does it seem ridiculous to you? It should, as we commonly refer to in the financial arena this is telephone numbers x 100. But let me help define it a bit differently as most people are not really accustomed to the language of numbers.
Let’s say we paid $1,000 a second against this 20T debt, that would be $60,000 per minute and $3.6M per hour. Daily it would be $86,400,000 per day as in $86.4M per day. In a year that is 31,536,000,000 or $31.5 Billion which would equate to $3.1T over 100 years. A century folks. That means that to pay off the $20T would take approx. 650 years at the rate of $1,000 per second. And that is without figuring for interest on the debt. Possibly 1,000 years with interest payments.
I really hope this puts some perspective on just how destructive debt truly is. Of course none of us individually has any numbers like this but sadly our numbers while much smaller are still just as deadly. For the average person in our society there is no chance for financial independence and that has nothing to do with lack of opportunity, education or network of influential friends or family. No, the real problem is the vast majority of Americans have been sold a bill of goods. They have been victimized and have unfortunately gladly embraced this victimization. I refer to it as the Reverse Compound Interest Syndrome. This has caused an epidemic of financial victimization under which the victims have lost all rights, chances or opportunities for financial independence. The direct causation is debt which carries with it the curse of interest payments. It’s not the debt that causes the victimization, it’s the interest that ends all hope of financial independence. Those agencies, organizations, institutions and corporations that lend you money and then earn money on that money by charging you interest are enjoying the magic of compound interest on YOUR money.
Please take a moment and think clearly. As long as you are paying interest you are losing the ability for that money to earn money for YOU and YOUR family. The longer you continue to pay this interest the LONGER YOU lose the opportunity to become FINANCIALLY INDEPENDENT.
Time to take back control of YOUR money and benefit from the MAGIC of COMPOUND INTEREST.
The national statistics on personal debt show the following:
Mortgage Debt $8+ Trillion
Auto Loans $1.1+ Trillion
Credit card debt $850+ Billion
Student Loans $1.3+ Trillion
Anyone think there might be a problem?
How sweet would it be to have a solution that speeds up the terms of interest payments, puts that savings back in your hands, and sticks it to the Banks, Merchants and Credit Card companies at the same time?
the Advocacy Network can provide this very solution. YOU can save $100’s of thousands in interest payments that presently are leaving you bankrupted from any financial independence. We have a software program that will re-allocate and redistribute your monthly payments to maximize your interest payment savings, in fact the average savings has been in excess of $108,000. The savings can be redirected into programs or investments that will compound and propel you to financial independence.
Time to STOP giving away the earnings your money can create for YOU. Presently you like the vast majority of Americans are stuck in the Reverse Compound Interest Syndrome and the Banks, Merchants and credit card companies are depending on you to stay in this condition. The Advocacy Network has the solution and we will put you in the driver’s seat for your financial independence. Let’s talk and show you how easily YOU can take back control of your money and stick it to the banks.
