Success For Life
Thursday, August 14 2014
Yesterday I went on and on about my warehouse move and how the energy has shifted everything which is a major reason for my sudden yet effortless success I've been having over the past couple of months.
But...I didn't mention a couple of things that I also changed which is partially responsible for my success.
In late June I was walking through Home Depot in the gardening section and I saw this fountain that I just had to have.  It fits into all the feng shui "rules" and it was just so lovely that I had to get it.  And what do you know...they had only one left in stock which had my name on it.
I got rid of my other fountain in my prosperity corner at home and I set up this new fountain.  Click here if you want to take a look at this exact fountain that Home Depot has that I set up in my prosperity corner at home.

Then I got a new money tree for that corner.  It's very small, like those ones that you see in the front area of the grocery store by the floral department.  Usually they're in a dish-looking thing with permanently glued-in pebbles.
Once I set up the fountain, I did notice an instant change in energy in the mere fact that it made me much happier.  (It's a nice-size fountain so it really makes a presence.)  Then, in the days that followed, our business really started to explode.  I had a whole new slew of money-making opportunities that pretty much dropped into my lap while automatically coming up with a flow of new ideas that I never thought about before.
Many of my students know how much I believe in the power of feng shui and how altering the energy in your house can make some substantial positive changes in your personal and business life virtually instantly.  And many of you know of my story about how -- more than a dozen years ago -- I went bankrupt and had to start over from scratch with nothing...and how my life completely changed from bankrupt and deeply in debt to back to multi-millionaire status...and in about 6 months!
Yes, you heard that correctly.  It took about 6 months.
I started the entire process with this book called Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life by Karen Rauch Carter.  I'll admit that I only focused on the prosperity corner of my house. And all I did was clean out my closet (which was in the prosperity corner, put some purple construction paper in there, and made my own treasure chest (to represent prosperity) out of a small chest from a craft store that I painted purple and added a bunch of fake jewels to.  (I still have that same treasure chest in my prosperity corner.)
Everything changed after that.  I went from bankrupt (as I indicated before) to building a house after claiming my multi-millionaire status...again.  And in about 6 months.
Now, was it just the feng shui that was responsible for the success?
No.  Not entirely.  I did work at my success plan, although not particularly hard.
The feng shui part makes things easy, like greased lightning.  It drops the success in your lap without much effort, gives you more ideas about attaining wealth, and makes everything super easy to do.
You tell me, which would you rather experience?
Walking through mud tied to a two-ton log, gaining almost no distance in life until you pass out or just give up?
Or having someone give you cloud-like "magical" pair of flying running shoes where all you have to do is stand up and start leaning forward then you'll start flying through life with barely any effort on your part, getting everything you ever wanted without a hitch?  (Yes, you did have to "stand up" and "lean forward" which implies some effort from you.)
So, when I mentioned my change of energy, I forgot to include the other things I did to make this happen (which was setting up the fountain and including a new money tree in my prosperity corner).
Think this is all New Age-ey clap-trap?  Fine.  Then stay broke.
The only reason I implemented any of these feng shui strategies was because I was in a situation of desperation and, maybe like you, I didn't believe in any of it until I saw first handthe power of changing your environment which changes the energy which ultimately changes everything!
Now, let's get to the part that I was talking about where you have to stand up and start leaning forward...
Years ago when I first got started in real estate investing, I started out as a real estate flipper.  I did very well until I found myself paying more taxes to the IRS than I thought I should be.  It was in the early 2000s when Dr. Raj told me about funneling some of these funds into apartment building real estate.
But by then it was a little too late because I was experiencing my major financial calamities at that time.
Ultimately those "financial calamities" turned out to be a blessing in disguise because it taught me how to start my apartment building investing career with no cash and no credit; quite simply, because I had no cash or credit to start with.
Since then I've been "mixing" flipping with funneling some of those proceeds into buy-and-hold passive income property deals as to not get beaten and raped by our American taxation system.
One thing I mentioned a couple of years ago is that the window of opportunity will be closing for flipping properties.  In fact, the window has already closed on certain major cities in the United States.
But something happened that I wasn't able to predict.  Our real estate market paused.  That's right.  It paused.  We stopped going up. What started off as a quickly growing buyer's market suddenly when horses get spooked off or something.  I don't know what happened.
This means that there is good news for you because this "pause" has allowed for opportunity to still be there when, in reality, it should have been completely gone this time last year in every city in the United States.
There's double good news for you.
Years ago when I got started with flipping, I had to raise the funds to acquire my first property.  It wasn't a lot.  I literally had to come up with something around $3,000 if I recall which was scraped together between credit cards and cash I happened to have in my bank account.  This was back in 1995 when I did my first flip deal.  Since it was a HUD on an FHA loan, I lucked out with having almost no down payment.
But that was a different era...hell, it was technically even a different century.  A lot has changed since then, both positive and negative.
What we didn't have back then was something called "deferred" wet funds.
When I have students asking me in today's day and age how to start with no cash and no credit, I can tell them the secrets strategies that I didn't even have access to use back in the day.
And if you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about, I suggest you click here to get the gist of it.
This is the part where you can choose to stand up and start to lean forward.  This real estate investing strategy is the easiest, quickest, and most profitable one I've ever worked with since I started my long-ago road as a professional real estate investor.  I seriously suggest you look into it if you want to take advantage of the opportunities that are left before our economy goes back into the full swing of things...which is right around the corner!
See you at the top!
Your mentor,
Monica Main
