I recall years ago reading this quote from Mike Todd, film producer. “I’ve never been poor, only broke. Being poor is a frame of mind, being broke is a temporary situation.”
Have you ever felt like you just can’t seem to get ahead financially? You’re gainfully employed, paying your bills, but what about building an education fund for the kids, spending money on fun and recreation, taking vacations, or having no guilt about buying shoes that cost as much as a whole week’s groceries?
I just read this statistic; only 39% of Americans have enough savings to cover a $1,000 emergency.
Whether it’s a broken water heater, an unexpected medical bill, or a car repair, emergencies happen to everyone. But a startling number of Americans are unprepared to cope with them, money-wise.
Discouraged? No need to be. I’ve been studying this for a long time for myself. We teach what we want to learn. There is hope and it starts with a shift in your mindset.
Here’s a quote from T. Harv Eker, an author businessman and motivational speaker.
“There is a secret psychology of money. Most people don’t know about it. That’s why most people never become financially successful. A lack of money is not the problem; it is merely a symptom of what’s going on inside of you.”
Several years ago I became a Specialty Certified Mentor Coach for New Money Story® provided by David Krueger, MD who wrote the book, The Secret Language of Money. This book has been translated into 10 languages. It seems that people from other cultures want to learn the secrets too.
Subsequent to getting certified and developing group coaching courses around helping clients create a thriving life story, I developed and trademarked a mindset assessment called Prosperity IQ (P-IQ)®. Just as Mike Todd and T. Harv Eker have stated, being broke is a state of mind. This assessment is to help you gauge your state of mind around prosperity at the point of taking it, which covers four major areas of life. I define prosperity as embracing a healthy, flourishing, influential, and successful life. Why not you?

Take the assessment. It will only be complimentary for the month of June 2019.
