My name is Stuart Zadel, CEO of Zadel Property Education, and welcome to the first part of The Keys to Financial Abundance Series.
Hello and welcome! Happy New year to you! This is Stuart Zadel coming to you from the virtual studios of Zadel Property Education with this month’s Success Tip.
Over the break, I’ve been thinking about the reason we exist in our business. Many people come to us to discover financial abundance in life. They want to be millionaires or multi-millionaires.
But what they really want is a financial surplus. It doesn’t matter how much as long as it’s surplus. I’ve been thinking, what is it that makes some people wealthy and financially abundant and some people not? And you know what? I believe there are three things that separate those that create a financial abundance and surplus versus those that don’t. And we’re going to get to the first part of that in today’s video in a moment.
But I firmly believe that you could take me to anywhere in this country to a unemployment line or anyone that’s down and out on their luck or something like that. And if I was able to identify these three characteristics that I’m going to talk to you about, I believe that person can become financially abundant and develop surpluses in their life. I don’t care who they are, I don’t care what situation they are in life. If they’ve got these three things that I’m about to talk to you about or one of them today, I believe they can create financial abundance.
Now, I’ve never met anyone without these three things that has created a financial abundance off their own efforts. So, we’ll get into that right now but remember, all three are required or ‘she’s a no go.’
WHAT ARE YOU AFTER?
So, first one, what is it we’re after? We’re after financial abundance. That’s financial abundance or you could say surplus. Whatever that means to you. So, I’m going to suggest to you, there are a number of people out there and they’re on a scale. And we’re going to draw a scale here across the page and we’re going to put 0 and 10 on the other. The scale we’re talking about now is the desirability scale – your level of desire.
So, if you ever read the book: “Think and Grow Rich”, you’ll know the first chapter. The first principle of success that Napoleon Hill talks about is that of desire. Of the 13 principles in that book, it is the single one principle that I can’t give you. That Napoleon Hill can’t give you. It’s got to be an inside job. It has to come internally from you and be expressed on the outside because no one can do it for you. You’ll be like an athlete. You want to run on a marathon, you can have a coach, you can have all the tools, you can have all the right information but nobody can run it for you. You’ve got to run your own race.
WHAT DO YOU DESIRE?
Now, one end here is you’ve got desire. We’re going to call this a level 10 desire and obviously you’ve got nine results along the way all the way here. And down on the other end, you have total disinterest. What’s the opposite of desire? Un-desire? I don’t know. I’m going to use the word apathetic. We’re going to use the word apathy and stick it in there. So, on a scale of 1-10, here is your question for the first key to being financially abundant or surplus is that you’ve got to want it. You’ve got to desire it and you’ve got to desire with a certain level of desire.
WHERE DO YOU FIT ON THE DESIRE SCALE?
So, what I would like you to do is think about on a scale of 0-10 right now, where do you fit on that desire scale? Are you a 0 or a 1? Not really interested. Well, congratulations. You’re going to get your level of desire. Or are you somewhere up here towards the top of the scale?
Now, I’ve been asking this question and doing this assignment. If you were in my live events – nearly I’m 9 years now and often we do get a number of people in the room that are 5 or below and for them, none of the systems in the world right is going to help them if they don’t have that in-depth level of desire. Some are around the middle like 6 or 7. But a high percentage are of course in the 8, 9 or 10 and they will succeed to their great desire that they have.
Now, here is the interesting thing, don’t get disheartened. If you don’t have the level of desire you think you need right now, don’t be disheartened. Why? Because first is, there are two more pieces to this puzzle that I’m going to talk to you about and secondly, your desire can be increased.
HOW DO YOU INCREASE YOUR DESIRE?
How do you increase your desire? Well, the way you increase your desire is you give attention to the thing that you want. If it is financial abundance or a surplus that you’re looking for, you start to concentrate on that. You start to concentrate on that, you study it – you look for it.
You see what that means, you see the lifestyle that it brings, and it’s that physical status. The car you drive, the clothes you wear, the house you live in. That certainly one part and I think a very superficial part of wealth. But let’s face it: it’s the main one that drives people. I think there is so much different one in terms of the emotional state. Your state of relax, your state of calm, knowing that you have a financial abundance or a financial surplus that takes care of life’s needs and unexpected emergencies that might come up.
So, you can develop your level of desire by hanging around people like-minded people. And the more you hang around them, the more you say it, the more you do it, the more you will be inspired and the more your desire will increase.
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
So this is your first tip for the year. Remember one and three, we’re going to put all three together on a scale here and we need to see where you fit on the scale here with these three key components.
Now, this applies not just to someone that‘s just getting started. This applies to those who are already doing well, to those who are already in business, those who are already into property or doing renovations or development or someone in the middle as well. These three things will equally apply.
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you will think about this over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for part 2.
