Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life
Dr. Robert Anthony
I would like begin these lessons by asking you an
important question: Do you know WHY you are reading this right now?
Your answer your might be "I came across your website on a search engine", or "A friend told me about your program", or it might be any other number of "LOGICAL" reasons.
The important thing this: It doesn't matter if there is a LOGICAL explanation or not. The fact that you are reading this means that there is something that you are seeking, but you haven't discovered how to manifest it in your life yet. It may have something to do with your business, your finances, your health, your relationships - or even something intangible, like peace of mind.
But until you understand what I am about to reveal, which is HOW things come in and out of your life, you will never be able to CONSCIOUSLY create the life you desire.
On the other hand, once you know the Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life, you will FINALLY be able to achieve your dreams and goals, one after the other, in a rapid, easy, stress free manner.
I am sure I don't have to tell you that your mind is your most powerful tool for achieving anything you want in life. However, since everyone has a mind, why don't they use it to create the lives they desire?
Why is it that most people use the power of their mind to work AGAINST them, instead of FOR them? You are going to find out in just a few minutes.
FIRST OF ALL, I AM GOING TO PREDICT YOUR FUTURE!
That's right. I am not a psychic, but I am going to start off by predicting your future with 100% accuracy!
How can I possibly do that?
It's very simple. I KNOW something about you - something that will allow me to predict your future with 100% accuracy.
Here it is: "If you keep THINKING what you are thinking, you will keep DOING what you are doing, and you will keep GETTING what you are getting.
In other words, what you are experiencing NOW and what you will experience in the FUTURE is the result of your previous thoughts. Your future is predetermined by your thoughts in this moment. So, if you want to change your future, you must change what you are thinking about in this
If I can convince you to do that, I predict you will have an absolutely fantastic, successful, exciting and happy future.
THE POWER OF FOCUS!
We are going to talk a lot about THE POWER OF FOCUS
throughout these lessons.
How you feel about life and anything in particular, depends on WHERE YOU FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION.
Ask yourself this question, "What do I focus on most of the time?" If you are like most people, you will discover something very interesting about yourself. You will discover that you spend more time focusing on what you DON'T want than what you DO want.
Why is this important?
Because you can't expect to have what you WANT if you
focuson the OPPOSITE of what you want. Put simply,
you will create and attract MORE of whatever you focus on.
Have you ever made this statement?
"I feel anxious, worried and stressed out, but I don't know why."
From what you have just learned, it is easy to figure out "why". It is impossible to feel sad, tense, worried or stressed out and not know why.
If you are feeling anxious, sad, tense, worried or stressed out it is because you are focusing on thoughts that create anxious, worried and stressful feelings. In other words, you are focusing on what you DON’T want, which is to feel anxious, sad, tense, worried or stressed out.
Said another way, bad thoughts can never produce good
results and good thoughts can never produce bad results.
Anytime you feel stressed, worried, fearful or have any other negative feeling, it is because you are doing two things:
1. You are focusing on what you DON’T want to happen.
2. You are focusing on the future, not the present moment.
It is impossible to feel stress, worry, fear or any other negative emotion if you are living in the present moment. The ONLY way you can feel negative emotion is to focus on what MIGHT happen, or what you DON'T WANT TO HAPPEN, in the next moment, next hour, next day, next week,next year, etc.
So your assignment for this first lesson is to monitor your thoughts. From now on I would like you to become the observer" of your thoughts. Don't judge. Just observe. Observe what you focus on and think about most of the time.
Are you focused on the past? What happened and how you wish it were different? Are you worried about the future? The next minute, the next day, next week, etc?
Start right now. Take a look at what you focus on most of the time. As you do this, please keep in mind: What you think about today, in this moment, will become your future.
Once you understand this, you can accurately predict your future. Simply put, If you keep thinking what you are thinking, you will keep getting what you are getting. But if you shift your thought patterns and focus on what you WANT, instead of what you DON’T WANT, you can begin to create a new and exciting future.
I will explain this in detail as we go into the next lessons, but for now please observe your thoughts and become aware of what you think about most of the time.
Most people want a better life. In an attempt to change their life for the better, they often purchase personal development books and courses and attend personal development seminars. In this lesson I want to talk about why most personal development attempts fail.
My guess is that this is not the first personal development information you have been exposed to. I will even go out on a limb and say that you have probably tried numerous personal development books, tapes/CDs, systems, methods, or techniques that did not produce the results you expected.
Why do most personal development programs fail? The
answer to this will enable you to rise above the majority of people who are trying to hopelessly to improve their lives.
Most personal development programs fail because:
1. We Fear Change
Face this fact; no matter what type of personal development strategy you are using, at some point you are going to have to make a CHANGE. It could be a small change, or a big change, but you are going to have to get out of your “comfort zone”.
Our sub-conscious “conditioned mind” does not like change. In fact, it is designed to resist change and to keep us where we are. The reason for this is the sub-conscious is primarily a survival mechanism. Its primary function is survival. It perceives any type of change as a threat to our survival. Unless we can bypass our survival mechanism,
all our personal development attempts will fail.
2. We Want Instant Results
Today people are conditioned by media advertising to expect “instant results.” Hence they want it NOW and expect to see results immediately in one session, one day, one week, one chapter of a book, etc. They give most personal development techniques and practices one chance, and if they do not get
immediate results, they get discouraged and give up.
Immediate results are always possible, but sometimes we need additional time to align our energy with our desires. If we do not align our energy properly, we will not reach our goal.
The need for instant results or instant gratification often keeps people from taking the time to align their energy, so it actually takes them LONGER to reach their goals.
3. We Give Up Too Soon.
Most people give up too soon. Part of this is due to the need for instant results and instant gratification. However, one of the reasons we give up too soon is we look at temporary setbacks as proof we cannot reach our goal. When this happens we blame ourselves and/or the personal development program, book, audio, seminar, etc. for our inability to achieve out goal and we give up too soon.
In order for any personal development program to work, you must not give up, even when it “looks” like it is not working.
4. We are “TRYING” instead of “DOING”
Most people “try” to get what they want. The problem is every time you “try”, you are setting yourself up for failure. In reality you can't try to do anything. You either DO it or you DON'T. So there is really not such thing as “trying”.
Your mind may resist this concept, but it is true. You may say. “I tried this or that and I eventually succeeded.” You succeeded when you stopped trying and started doing. You did what you needed to do to achieve your goal. So the lesson here is that you cannot succeed as long as you are “trying”. However, once you stop "trying" and start "doing" you can begin to expect results.
When people “try” personal development programs, they
immediately set themselves up for failure. Trying has
built-in failure because if we try something and don’t succeed, we can always say, “Well, at least I tried”. But that does not get you what you want. The problem is that you can only have two things in life- reasons or results. In other words, you either have what you want or you have reasons why you don’t have what you want, but there in nothing in between.
My point here is that the success or failure with any
personal improvement strategy (or anything else in life) is based on DOING, not TRYING to DO!
Those who “try” are guaranteed to fail. Those that DO
(follow through until they get the result they desire) are the people who achieve their great dreams and desires.
5. We Focus on WHAT Instead of WHY.
Most people fail at personal development efforts because they focus on WHAT they have to do to get what they want instead of focusing on WHY they want it. If you lose focus on WHY you want what you want, and instead you focus on WHAT needs to be done, you will lose your motivation and give up when the going gets tough.
Unless you constantly focus on the WHY - the benefits or what you will gain when you reach your goal - you will not be able to make the changes you desire and you will give up as soon as you run into obstacles that seem overwhelming.
What I am asking you to do is to decide how serious you are about having what you want. WHY do you want what you want? Forget about what you have to DO to get it. That will take care of itself. If you are not clear on WHY you want what you want (the benefits you will gain when your reach your
goal) and are not serious following through until you
achieve it, then don't waste your time reading the rest of these lessons. Instead, sit back in your recliner, turn on the TV, open a can of beer, scratch the back of your head, and just keep doing what you have been doing and I guarantee you that you will keep getting what you have been getting!
But if you are excited about making a major change in your life, if you are really ready to attract what you desire, and you are not going to give up until you reach your goal, then something wonderful is going to happen in your life.
We are still laying the foundation to using The Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life. If you haven't figured it out yet, I am setting you up not to fail. In fact, if you apply what you are learning, it will be impossible for you to fail!
Next, I want to discuss how you can dramatically improve the results of any personal development program. It doesn't matter if you use my material or any other program, book or strategy.
In order to succeed at any personal development program, you must to do the following:
1. Decide on what you want.
This is called your INTENTION. Write down what you want on a piece of paper. If you want it, you can have it.
Start with one intention and work on that and then you can go to the next, etc. Always focus on a positive outcome. Never say, “I DON'T WANT this”, such as “I don't want to be broke”. Instead, focus on what you WANT, such as “I want to attract more money into my life”.
As you do this I want you to focus on a THREE LETTER WORD that will guarantee your success. We talked about this in the last lesson, but I want to emphasize it again in this lesson. The three letter word is WHY.
You must be clear on WHY you want your goal or desire, or WHY you want to fulfill a certain dream. Always, always, always (should I say that again?) keep your focus on WHY you are doing what you are doing. A-L-W-A-Y-S! Otherwise you will give up when the slightest obstacle stands in your way or it doesn't seem like things are “working” for you.
This is why 99% of people fail at any attempt to improve their life. They are not clear on WHY they want what they want. They are not clear on the BENEFITS. The WHY is always more important than the HOW. In other words, WHY you want something will motivate you to achieve it. Worrying or trying to figure HOW you are going to get it only pushes it
further away. So always focus on the WHY.
Your sub-conscious mind must be convinced that what you desire is what you really want. Not what you think you “should” want, or what others want for you, but what you TRULY want. If your sub-conscious mind perceives any change as a “have to”, “should” or “must”, such as “I have to do this”, “I should do this”, or “I must do this”, it will resist the change. That will cause you to give up too easily before you reach your goal.
As soon as you encounter the first obstacle that comes along, your sub-conscious will give you all the logical reasons why you should quit. If you focus on WHY you want what you want you will not give up easily, but will be motivated to keep moving toward your goal, even if you have a temporary setback.
2. Commit yourself 100% to follow through UNTIL you get a result.
Read it again! I didn't say IF you get a result. I said UNTIL you get a result. There is a huge difference. Keep in mind, there is only one way to fail, and that is to quit.
3. Suspend your disbelief
Do not prejudge whether or not the personal development program, book or strategy you are using will work. Suspend your disbelief that it will NOT work for you. Keep in mind that it has worked for others and it WILL work for you.
One the most common obstacles I run into with clients is that they think, “I know this has worked for others, but in my case it is different.” In fact, I have never worked with a client who didn't think that in their case it was “different”.
Trust me, you circumstances may be different, but the
underlying problem for everyone is always the same.
4. Don't judge results too quickly.
Often people will have quick results when making a change because they are ready for the change and they have aligned their energy. (more on that later). You could be one of them, but you need to allow some time for adjustment.
Don't measure your results in hours, days, weeks, etc. ANY improvement is a forward movement. Use even the smallest improvement as a building block to take the next step forward. You will continue to move forward as long as you focus on what you want instead of what you don't want. (Review Lesson 1)
Remember when you learned to ride a bike? It was relatively difficult at first to keep your balance. Then you got rolling and it seemed so easy. In the beginning we are often out of balance. Sometimes it takes a little while to regain our balance.
5. Measure your progress from where you started.
There are two groups of people. The first group measures their progress against some kind of an ideal goal. The second group measures their progress against where they started. Measuring your progress against some idealgoal is kind of like trying to travel to the horizon. You can never get there because no matter how you move toward it, the
horizon always recedes, so it always seems to be an equal distance away from where you start.
People that have that strategy in deciding whether or not they are making progress are always frustrated because it always seems to them that they are making no progress.
The second group of people are those that note where they were when they started. When they look back, it is obvious that they have made progress. Once I get this concept across to people, they will often say, “My God I have been doing that my whole life and I have been frustrated about everything that I have done. Now I suddenly realize that I
have been making all kinds of progress in lots of areas of my life and I didn't even see it”.
We need to measure our progress from where we start. If you measure your progress on the horizon (your ideal goal) you will always be frustrated.
6. Focus on the next step.
Always focus on what you have to do NOW - IN THIS MOMENT. Forget about what you may have to do in the future. Just keep your point of focus on what you want to accomplish IN THIS MOMENT.
Usually when you start to see progress you have this
impulse to want to rush things. You want things to change “right now: This pushes you and drives you to “force” things to happen. But, as you will learn, less effort creates more results.
7. Do What You Know
I am sure you know people who have studied personal
development books and programs most of their lives and have not made any SIGNIFICANT changes. They read, study and attend personal development seminars and nothing, or very little, seems to change. Why is this so?
Simply because they are personal development “junkies”. Like any junkie they need a “fix”. But the problem is that even though it is a positive fix, they are still addicts. They are addicted to the illusion that the more they study
and learn, the more their life will improve. If they can just find that one book, one program, one strategy they are looking for, their lives will turn around.
Of course, they never find it because they are addicted to COLLECTING INFORMATION. They read all the books and listen to the tapes and CDs and study, but they don't move forward. The keep running in place, only now they have more information.
Here's why more information will not change your life.
It is not enough to KNOW what to do - you must to DO what you know. Read it again!
In other words, MORE INFORMATION is not the answer. Even the information you are learning in these lessons will not change your life. I promise you that when you finish these lessons you will KNOW what to do. However, the goal for these lessons is to get you to DO what you KNOW.
I am not saying that learning new techniques and strategies is not helpful. I buy hundreds of books and attend dozens of seminars, but I know that the INFORMATION will not change my life. The change comes when I APPLY the information UNTIL I GET THE RESULT I desire. In other words, when I DO what I KNOW.
My intention for the first three lessons is to set you up not to fail. In other words, failure is not an option if you will DO what you KNOW. (Actually apply what you are learning). If that is the case, then you are ready for the next step. You are ready for The Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life.
It will be a real eye-opener!
But please take a moment to review the last 3 lessons. It will take you less than 15 minutes. I know, I know, your sooooooo busy! But do you really want to move forward in your life, or do you just want to collect more information?
It's worth repeating again. It is not enough to KNOW what to do - you must DO what you know.
In the last three lessons we talked about how your thoughts create your future. This not a new idea. If you have studied any personal development material I am sure you have heard all this before. However, up until now you may have had difficulty BELIEVING this is true. Also, you really had no idea of WHY and HOW this is true.
So, when you take a look at what is happening in your life, you may have difficulty making the connection between your THOUGHTS and what is actually happening. It seems like the two are separate. So, let's try to connect the dots.
Neither success nor failure happens by accident. The
assumption of almost every person I have ever met who
continues to fail in almost everything they do, is that they believe something or someone OUTSIDE of them is responsible for their present circumstances.
The question that must be answered is WHO or WHAT is
responsible for us NOT having what we want? Our parents? Our background? Our education? God? Destiny?
Here's how it works.
Nothing OUTSIDE of you is responsible for not having what you want, even though it may appear that way.
Here is the REAL problem. You experience what you
experience in your life because you are in TRANCE and you don't even know it!
You see, we all live in a trance. As a hypnotist for many years, I have learned that trances are powerful. They are real. And, we are ALL in them. What I finally realized was that when people came to me, they were ALREADY in a trance. My job was not to put them into a trace, but to
change their trance.
You're in a trance right now. So am I. As long as we
BELIEVE the trance we are in, we will continue to live in that trance. When we wake up from our trance, we'll just be in ANOTHER trance and live that. Unfortunately the trance most people are in keeps them from understanding how life
actually works. (how they get what they get in life) They think they know how life works, but they are in the wrong trance.
Everything that happens to us is because of our beliefs or the trance we live in. For example, if you hold on to the belief that you are a victim of your circumstances, or that whatever happens to you is purely random or predestined, you will keep creating that same reality. This also becomes
your "reason", or more accurately your excuse why others can have what you want, but it can never happen for you.
I am sure you will agree that we live in a universe that is governed by a series of physical laws. Take gravity for example. We have no idea how gravity works, but we see evidence of it working every day. So it is not a matter of whether we BELIEVE it or not, the Law of Gravity works every moment of our existence.
There are many other laws like the Law of Gravity that that run without our conscious attention or belief. I want to discuss ONE law in particular that is as certain as gravity and that ABSOLUTELY determines the outcome of your life. This law determines whether you have money, health,
positive relationships, success or anything else in your life. It also determines whether you live a life that is full of worry, fear and stress, or a life that is carefree and happy.
This law is called The Law of Attraction. Without
understanding how this law affects your life, your life will continue to appear chaotic and uncertain. Worse yet, you will spend the rest of your life REACTING to everything and everyone around you - being pushed one way and then another, like a cork floating on the ocean.
The things you react to in your everyday life are a direct result of what you think, feel and believe. Unfortunately the majority of people will argue that it is the other way around. That things just “HAPPEN” to us and this is what causes us to feel the way we feel. And all we can do is to
try to make the best out of what's HAPPENING because we really don't have control over the events in our lives.
The majority of people live their life this way. They lead lives of “quiet desperation,” just accepting things as they are, living their lives HOPING for the best, while ACCEPTING the worse.
However, you do not have to be among this sad majority. In fact, you can walk away any time you want, once you understand the Law of Attraction and how it works.
Despite the fact that this law has been around before the beginning of time, most people who pride themselves as being “logical thinkers” will discredit it. They'll say that it's nonsense and it is not based on science or “reality”.
As we know, for centuries we thought the earth was flat. But THINKING something is true or false does not make it so. What REALLY matters are RESULTS we experience when we live by those thoughts.
Let's take a moment and talk about the Law of Attraction and see if we can put it into perspective. You have heard the saying that “like attracts like”. That is absolutely true. Why? Because everything in our universe is made of
Science has proven that like energy attracts like energy. Everything on this planet - in this universe - including our thoughts, are made up of energy. If you don't believe this is true - that everything is made up of energy - then let me ask you this question. What do you think YOU'RE made
You may say, “Flesh and bones”. Okay, then the next logical question is, what are your flesh and bones made up of? Cells? Okay, then what are your cells made up of? Molecules. Okay, what are molecules made up of?
If I keep asking the question, eventually the answer must bring it back to the basic substance of which we are all made up of. When you run out of the physical stuff, you are left with only one thing: Energy! You cannot deny that we are made of energy. Quantum science has already proven that this is true.
Here is something important for you to know about energy. All energy has specific magnetic proprieties. To put it in simple terms, we are basically magnets. As magnets, we are attracting things all day long, even if we are unaware of
This magnetic energy is also VIBRATING at different
frequencies, and those frequencies determine the magnetic properties of the energy that we are vibrating. Essentially what we are saying is this: How we align our energy is the key to making a MAJOR change in our life and attracting ANYTHING we desire.
Maybe this is easy for you to understand and accept. On the other hand, maybe your logical mind has trouble accepting that this is real. You may even be thinking that this is a bunch of metaphysical nonsense. It doesn't matter.
Just stay with me here, because tomorrow I am going to reveal the Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life. You will learn how and why this concept is the key to creating the life you have always desired.
We learned in the last lesson that we are magnetic human beings that are made of vibrating energy and that energy is attracting other people, circumstances and conditions into our lives.
If that is true (and I can assure you that it is) then how can we use this information to change our lives for the better? It's very simple. If we could learn how to change our personal magnets, (for lack of a better term!), then all we have to do is to CHOOSE what we want to magnetize into our lives.
Once we learn how to do that, we are free forever from anything or anyone determining the outcome of our life. That brings us to The Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life.
I won't keep you in suspense any longer. The Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life is this -
TO CREATE ANYTHING WE DESIRE, ALL WE HAVE TO DO
IS CHANGE OUR VIBRATIONAL THOUGHT FREQUENCY TO
MATCH WHAT WE WANT TO CREATE IN OUR LIVES
Let's explore this further. You see, just WANTING something and even BELIEVING you can have it on a CONSCIOUS level is not enough. The reason we don't have what we want is because we have negative energy systems within us that have been running our lives for years.
These energy systems are so deeply ingrained into our
sub-conscious that we have no idea that they are even
there. So, we have good intentions, we are positive, we try to live a good life, but we keep getting whacked in the head at every turn!
At times it seems like everything and everyone is against us. It's as though we are alone against the world. And so our life becomes one of surviving rather than living. Does this describe anyone you know?
Since we are magnets that attract what we focus on, the only way we can truly live the life we desire is we must uncover those thoughts that are working AGAINST us instead of FOR us.
Why is this so important?
Because it is those thoughts that determine what we CAN and CAN NOT attract and experience in our lives. It is our “opposing” thoughts that keep our magnetic point of attraction, or our vibrational energy, going in the WRONG direction.
Once you understand The Million Dollar Secret That Can Change Your Life it's easy to see why positive thinking doesn't work. You can be as positive as you want, but if your SUB-CONSCIOUS magnetic point of attraction is going in the OPPOSITE direction, you will continue to attract (magnetize) more of what you DON'T want even though your are a “good” person and a positive thinker.
This also answers the question why bad things happen to good people. Think about it! You can be a “good” person, but if your vibrational energy is going in the wrong direction on a sub-conscious or unconscious level, then you will experience the “bad” things that you don't want.
It is important to understand that it is not our thinking that creates our circumstances, but the emotion that is attached to our thoughts. The universe responds to the FEELING and EMOTION of our thoughts - not the thoughts themselves. This is what activates the energy and produces the things we experience in our lives.
Energy will always find it's vibrational match. Therefore, we must make sure that we are conscious of the energy we are sending out and adjust or correct that energy in the moment it occurs so that it doesn't leave our energy system and unconsciously create what we don't want.
Let's use a practical example and apply this to a subject that most of us are interested in - MONEY. I am sure no matter how much money you have, you would like MORE of it, RIGHT? But take a look at what you are actually vibrating or the energy you are sending out about money.
Perhaps you are saying, “I want more money”. That's fine, but at a deep sub-conscious or unconscious level you may have a powerful opposing energy system that is saying:
“It would love to be rich, but there is no way I am ever going to become wealthy. Or...
“I would love to be rich, but I'll settle for just paying my bills.” Or…
“I would love to be rich, but don't DESERVE to have more money than my family.” Or…
“With this economy and my job circumstances there is no way I will ever be wealthy.” Or…
“With all the debts and responsibilities I have, there is no way I can every get out of this unless I win the lottery.”
If these or similar thoughts are your sub-conscious belief, what do you suppose is going to happen? It's very simple. You are saying one thing - "I want to have more money" but at the same time, you are sending out energy that is in direct opposition to what you want. The end result is you don't have what you want.
The problem is that those opposing beliefs, which are all individual energy systems, need to be modified in such a way that your conscious mind is in alignment with what going on at a sub-conscious level. Because once you align both your conscious and sub-conscious there is literally NO LIMIT to what you can be, do or have.
And here is some more good news. You don't have to “work hard” or effort to get what you want. That is just another belief system. If you believe it's a “dog eat dog world” and you have to “work hard” and effort to get what you want, guess what? You probably guessed it. If you BELIEVE it, you will LIVE it.
What I want to tell you is that any difficulties you are experiencing will change as quickly as you can change the negative or opposing energy systems that keeps attracting the results you are experiencing right now.
But understand this - If you think about, focus on and talk about “what is” you will attract more of “what is”. If you find things in your life you don’t l
