Have the headlines got you spooked?
Let me introduce you to my 2 Laws for Financial Success…In Spite of Fear (yours and everyone else’s!)…(drum roll please!)…expressly for the faint-hearted and other victims of the current fear mongering.
1. Stanny’s Law of Resistance—the amount of resistance you experience in any endeavor is directly correlated to the amount of power and pleasure available on the other side.
2. Stanny’s Law of a Lousy Economy—no matter how bad the economy, there will always be people who are prospering.
The following email demonstrates these laws in action. The writer, a seminar graduate, ended up in the hospital after the first day of a 2 day seminar! Even though she was in utter fear and the economy sucked big-time, she tenaciously respected Stanny’s Laws! Look what happened:
I took your Overcoming Under Earning Workshop last fall. I am the woman who spent the night (after the first day) hooked to an IV in the emergency room. My body was physically rebelling the changes that were taking place in me emotionally in your workshop! As crazy as it seemed, I forced myself back for the second day… knowing I had every excuse not to launch deeper into more of my financial mud pit.
Thank goodness I did… I am very happy to report that despite the economic upheaval of our Country I am better than ever.!!!! Since I saw you I have made some real tangible changes. First off, I got the courage to go back to court and get a child support adjustment… this was something that I had been avoiding for 9 years… results a 233% increase!!!! Long overdue, obviously.
Even better than that, I finally know my financial future is completely in my hands… and that is incredibly empowering. I now know that I control my financial future. (I feel excited just writing this, and even more excited living it!!! ) I am working “smarter not harder“.
I have adjusted my business focus to accommodate the economic environment. I now do what I had been doing full time, part time, and am working more full time with my internet brokerage company. The shift in focus has given me great financial success, as a matter of fact by staying on the course I am on now, I am estimated to triple my best income ever within 12 months!!! Wow, didn’t even know what leverage was about a few years ago.
Just wanted to send you my success story and express my thanks for you, and the door that you helped me open in my life!
The moral of this story: never ever let fear or resistance stop you from going for the gold… regardless of what’s happening ‘out there’ or going on ‘in here’ (i.e. your head). Resistance is simply a clear indication of what you need to do next!!
