The physical brain is the most complex and amazing organ in the human body. It does all kinds of amazing things for you, like regulating your breathing, maintaining your bodily functions, and generally - keeping you alive. Your mind, however, does things to you – like keeping you stuck! The reason for this is simple – you don’t know how it works. Just like with investing, relationships, money or business, if you don’t know how things work – it will likely get you into trouble. At the very least you will be learning things the hard way! If you have made the choice to become wealthy, you have to know more about how your mind works - logically, physically and biologically. Understanding how your mind works will allow you to use your mind to serve you, instead of you serving it. How your brain works.

As the infamous Jim Rohn used to say: "You don't get paid for having a job. You get paid for the value you are adding at your job." If you got paid just for having a job, all you would have to do was to show up. But that is certainly not the case, and definitely not sustainable...

You have to contribute something in exchange for money.
Imagine you allowed a thief into your house. You gave them a key and free access to everything. You also show them where the valuables are and give them the chains to lock you up. How long do you think it will take before you will live in an empty house? Not very long. If you don’t know how credit cards work, they can become the thieves in your wallet.

Are you currently concerned about your credit card debt? Do you feel like you are drowning in credit card debt? This lesson will assist you to take back control; to send that thief on his way; to unlock the chains and to eliminate credit card debt forever.

You should ask them. You should answer them. They will help you to forge a better, wealthy lifestyle.
Do you need a wealth coach? Can you benefit from a free wealth coach? Is it possible that your garden be your wealth coach?! In my studies of wealth I was surprised at how many millionaires maintain their own gardens. They mow the lawn, trim the hedges, plant flowers and remove weeds. Why - I thought, would someone who has so much money not just pay for someone to do their own garden? So I tried it out for myself. Since 2010 I have been mowing the lawn, trimming the hedges, planting flowers and removing those pesky little weeds. As it turns out, I discovered not only why they do it, but I also discovered some more of the secrets to wealth. Gardening coaches you about time, value, value for money, the time-value of money, people, health, money and wealth! All this from a garden? You bet! Here's what I learned:
