I haven’t picked up a fashion magazine in years (I know, weird, huh?) and the other day I was at the airport and was looking for some light n’ frothy reading, and a fashion magazine packed with airbrushed and spray-tanned celebrities wearing $1,000 shoes and $25,000 dresses seemed to fit the bill.
As I was reading it, the not-so-subtle message came across loud and clear: having more money is the key to a better life - and you can’t be beautiful, fit and living the life of your dreams unless you are outrageously, over-the-top wealthy.

As a woman who has made multiple 6 figures for years now (and who was raised by a single mother on a secretary’s salary) I can tell you: Wealth and Money are two different things altogether.
Johnny and I have experienced the humbling lows of making barely enough to pay our rent month to month, to the highs now of making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. I am grateful for these experiences. We have learned a lot and now we’re helping unplug others from The Matrix world’s version of “Wealth” to the Real World of True Wealth (a very attainable place to be, by the way).
How? Okay, you know this “unplugging” process is more than an article like this can cover.
But for now, here’s a
4 Step List of Attitudes that Keep You Stuck in a Rut
(and how to GET UNSTUCK)

1. You truly feel that you have seen it all and done it all and know it all. A change in life experience starts with a change in mind, which happens when you realize you may just not know it all. But you have to come to that realization on your own. Sure, you’ve come a long way, baby… but if you’re not Jesus Christ, Buddha or some other enlightened being, there’s still some learning to do! This is why we have been studying Dr. John Gray’s Mars/Venus teachings (and why he’s the featured speaker at our course) in his books and workshops- to keep learning. Open your mind, remove any lingering “know-it-all” vibes that may be coming from you, and put on your beautiful “Life Long Learner” hat!
2. Become or stay addicted to drama, struggle, and suffering. If you are competing for “worst life circumstances” awards and feel that is “just the way life is “, you just will not fit in where lives are being changed (like at our trainings, which are for people looking to make changes in their lives for the better). Get about the business, the dedicated, focused, business of changing your life, not complaining about your life. It is true that sometimes bad things do happen to very good people, but our strategies, tools, and mindset shifts are focused on “yes, that happened…now what?” Stay focused on asking yourself this question… it keeps you moving forward, rather than stuck in the past.
