How Much Is Your Success REALLY Worth To You?

I ask this question a lot to the people who come to my seminars or simply to anyone who stops me to ask about how they can really succeed in life. You see, a lot of people say that they want to succeed financially in life, but you know what? They’re really just kidding themselves.

They’re just blowing hot air!

What this people really mean is that you WOULD LIKE to succeed, they WISH to succeed, or to they HOPE to succeed.

This means that success for them is not a must at all! If success comes to their doorstep – great!. But if not, they’ll still just carry on with their mediocre lives.

How do I know this for sure?

Simple. I ask them to INVEST in their education. I tell them if they really want to become financially successful, they must learn the skills that will enable to get them there.

It’s just like learning to drive a car. You can’t expect to hurtle 100kmh down the expressway without first learning the skill of driving, right?

It’s common sense!

But you know what I hear all the time?

So when I tell these people that they need to invest in their own financial education to become financially successful, who know what I hear most of the time?

I hear EXCUSES. Excuses like…

* ‘Oh, I don’t have the time to learn all that’
* ‘I wish I could, but I can’t afford that program’
* ‘I’m too tied up at my job at the moment, maybe when I’m freer’
* ‘That’s way too expensive, no way I’m going to pay for that’
* ‘I don’t need all this information, just tell me the SECRET’

Hello folks… There is NO secret!

The ‘secret’ has been hiding in front of you in plain sight for you to see all along.

The REAL secret is this: If you want to become rich and successful, you just have to follow the people who are already rich and successful. Learn their mindset, their habits, the way they manage money, how they make investing decisions. Learn their attitude towards success and failure. In short, you must BECOME like them.

How serious are you really?

You see, if you are REALLY (I mean REALLY) serious about your personal financial, then you will do whatever it takes to get there!

You won’t be giving YOURSELF excuses about why you can’t do certain things. Instead you’ll be asking yourself questions on how you can become financially successful. All the time!

Am I making sense here or what?

Don’t kid yourself any longer…

If you aren’t 100% serious about your financial success, then just STOP kidding yourself and go live a normal life. There’s nothing absolutely wrong with that, if that’s what you truly want!

BUT if you serious about becoming rich and successful, then just stop all the excuses and start taking ACTION. You need to take NEW action to create NEW results. So if you have never made $15,000 a month before, this means you need to take new action to make that happen. Doing the same old thing will just get you the same old paycheck.

Here’s how you can start!

The very first step you need to take is to invest in your education and increase your financial intelligence. Because if you don’t do this step, then you’ll just be taking all the WRONG action, and that could be financially catastrophic.

Don’t play around with your money. Do the smart thing and learn in the ways of the rich and successful FIRST, so then you can start taking the RIGHT action to achieve your financial goals.

It’s just like driving a car…

That’s right… being financially successful is just like learning to drive a car. You need to learn how to do it first BEFORE you actually you start hitting the gas. Because if you don’t, you’re going to crash.

So if you are the type of person who is willing to make your goals happen, then click on the link below to find out more on how you can get started on the fast track to financial success:


I’ll see you at the top,

    Hi Adam

    Honestly, I was quite pessimistic about your whole Wealth Academy (WA) – I am still. Nevertheless, I invested in your WA programme which will take place next month. Meanwhile, as a beginner in this, I was wondering what I should do to start the ball rolling instead of waiting besides of course reading your WA pre-reading materials and your books such as Secrets of Millionaire Investors. I opened an account with Optionsxpress and started doing some virtual trading but I have very little knowledge of what I was actually doing or heading. Yes I made and lose some “money”, so what! I want to learn from my mistakes for the losses so that I will not repeat but do not really know how to analyse. I wanted to consistently make money for those I won but again don’t know how. I also I tried to look at potential stocks to invest in but does not where to start from. I wanted to know the entrance and exit criteria of each stock but again don’t know how. I wanted to know alot lot more. Do you consider this serious enough to become financially successful? What should I do now? Some advise from you will be good. So rest be assured I will make my 4 days of workshop with you next month beneficial to myself by arming myself with all the questions and more importantly the “MUST be financially successful” attitute. Hope to hear from you.

    Hi Adam….I’ve been following your posts closely now. Actually I’ve bought your Secrets of Self-made Millionaires some time ago but have yet to finish the course (only at the 3rd CD to be honest) yes…. family and work …they are occupying the most of my time. Yes…I know they are excuses you may say…but they are real nonetheless….But no worries…I will get there some day…. that…..I’m determined even it will take me the longer route. Hope you’ll continue to be my inspiration in this journey.

    Hi Adam. I am intrested in your senimar. I am currently sec4 and having O’level this year. I’ve difficulties in English thus I came here to look for help. My friends recommended that your senimars change a big difference on them. They managed to memorise hundreds of vocabulary words in one shot time.

    I was curious how they manage to memorise hundreds of vocabulary words? And what actions do I need to take inorder to score well for my subjects.

    Any opinions? Thankyo 😉

    Hi, regarding this financial topic.

    There is a show on Channel 8, on Saturday 9.30pm. It’s talking about financial. I wonder if everything is similar (as in terms of the methods, the way of saving money, the way of making money, the investing)

    I watched the first episode who this lady is financially freed/stable (whatever to be called). she buys stocks and shares.she is only 25 years old with condo and car. (maybe some of you might have watched that and know who I am referring to) Making money grow money?

    there are many other ways, we can save on things that is not necessary to buy, the food we eat can be home cooked food and not those expensive food.. Whatever we eat, will pootpoot out. so if I spend $2.00 vs $200.00, I think it is worth to pootpoot $2.00 than $200.00.. haha.. (eee.. yucks. ok that’s so horrible)

    I don’t know if I’m blowing hot air, but already I have spent almost $10.000
    in educational material and being coned by sybergangters, and can’t repay my credit card debts. I know many of you guys have very good intentions, but when it come to help someone who is really in need for some sort of “technicalities” if this person has no money left, there is no help available.
    Can you explain that, because I don’t understand

    P.S. I’m talking about other guys, I haven’t met you yet, so I’ not about you.

    I’ve never attended any seminar b4…& I wud like 2 know, wats d difference btw buying all ur books + cd & attending ur seminars directly? I’ve a fren who attended other seminars & he says, its not necessary to buy books, coz all d materials & books will be given in all seminars. is it true?

    Hi TQ

    Trying to learn investing or NLP from just reading books is like trying to learn Karate by reading a textbook on it and going for a tournament. You are not likely to succeed. Although the book can give you the knowledge and theory, but you will not have a live coach there to guide you in actually experiencing the techniques and applying what you have learnt! Yes, when you sign up for the program, the package comes with all the books and audio CDs.
