I have started an inner circle, a club, a group, call it what you will, and people are joining it so they can get emails, webinars and powerful audios and ebooks all on the subject of creating wealth.
It has been set up to help people make money.
It's based on the excitement I feel for my new book, Wealth Warrior.

The TRUTH is we CAN create great wealth, and the LIE is that we are powerless and unskilled in the area of money.......

When I wrote The 17 Lies, I was writing about clients I had.
It was really interesting to me that clients (coaching clients) I had, who sat down to work with me, really wanted to have a better life and wanted to make more money and wanted to succeed more or have better relationships-whatever their project was.
But the first thing we had to get out of the way is how they were disconnected from reality.
In other words, when they weren't really living in the real world---and I mean the real world in a positive, wonderful, kind way---when they weren't appreciating how the world was lining up to really help them with their project.
When they weren't appreciating how the world was actually lined up to help them with their wealth project, we would have to take away the lies that disconnected them from the real world.
In other words, they were telling themselves things that weren't true and because they weren't true, they were very confused and out of alignment with what was possible.
So, for example, let's say I tell myself that Mexico is to the north of me and here I am in Arizona and I want to go to Mexico and I tell myself Mexico is up north, to get to Mexico I need to head north and I start driving that direction.
Now that's not really true that Mexico is north of me and because it's not true, all the things I try to do are going to fail.
In other words, my goal of getting to Mexico is not going to work out for me because my basic belief that it's to the north is incorrect. I keep telling myself it's to the north, but it's incorrect.
I had clients who kept telling themselves things that weren't really true.
And because they were doing this, they were disconnected from their real power, their real strength, and their real resources.
So my first job in coaching people was to help them see how the world really worked and how they were lying to themselves.
I use the word 'lie' because it's the opposite of the truth, but "lie" kind of suggests that you are doing this deliberately, trying to sabotage yourself, afraid of success and all that.
That's not really true, it's just confusion; and I used the word 'lie' because it was really dramatic (you know, you try to write a book that has some drama so it will sell). Fortunately for me this book has sold quite well and I've been very happy with it and so many people over the years have come back to me either through e-mail or letters or calling (leaving a message) telling me this book has meant a lot to them because they found in reading it that they themselves were telling these lies.
The beautiful thing about these lies is once you can really see them, they are no longer your internal belief system so they no longer run you-they no longer drive your life with all this mis-perception.
Notice what happens when you believe (for example) that Canada is to the south of you. You now head south hoping to get to Canada and (oh my goodness) you're not in Canada at all.
So this is why the lies must be dealt with.
These 17 lies were the ones that my clients told me the most often and the ones I really had to work with because I found them in my own life. In other words, these were lies (these 17) that kept my own life totally stuck for many years, spinning my wheels---confused, not succeeding, not achieving, and certainly not knowing how to create wealth.
I mean for years and years I had no clue.
I had no strength in that area, I didn't know how to apply my imagination to it, so I was really lost when it came to making money. And this all got turned around (fortunately for me) and what I would like to do now is turn it around for anyone willing to join my Wealth Warrior group and receive the teaching. Not just teaching. Inspiration too. And motivation. And wake up calls.
Lie # 1 is: It's who you know.
In other words, all power is outside of me, only other people can grant me success; and knowing the right people or knowing enough people is the key to me being successful.
This is a carryover from childhood where we are programmed to see that our guardians- whoever they are, the two parents, or two guardians, the adults running our lives when we are kids-----that these people have all the power and in order to get what I want whether it's food, or money for candy, or baseball cards, or money for video games-whatever it is, I have to please these people outside of me.
So I'm now conditioned going into adulthood to believe it's just who you know.
When I coach people they've got all these things going on that are designed to have them know more people.
They've got marketing things going on, they've got branding and niche things going on, and they've got all sort of ways to get out there and network and meet more people, and they think somehow if they meet enough of the right people, that alone will put them in a better position to make money.
This really is not true.
Because your success when it comes to creating wealth is not about who you know.
It's about what you do. How you serve. That's the key to your success.
So, if you create something wonderful and beautiful---whether it's an iPad or a bestselling book or a bakery shop or a service coaching people---anything in the world, it's what you do.
It's how you serve that brings you wealth because these people---the people who you thought were the most important in the world---will tell other people about you.
So it's not just who you know.
All this obsession with getting other people to be impressed with me, and won over by me, and thinking it's a numbers' game, is folly. That's not really it. What I want to do instead is serve people so well that they tell people and those other people come for my product or my service.
And that's the key to creating wealth.
Therefore I've got to get this thing called IT'S WHO YOU KNOW out of my system because I waste so much time, connecting, connecting, connecting on Facebook, e-mail (whatever is the latest-by the time this blog comes out there will be new things and Facebook will sound laughable like My Space or 8-track tapes).
I don't care, the principle will always be the same.
It's not who you know, it's what you can do; and not only what you can do, but what you DO do. What you actually do each day to serve other people. That's the key to creating wealth.
