Did you know that financial success is according to Brain Science predicted by your brain and not by you? When I heard this first I was surprised.
There will be a high number of people arguing about that, but Neuro Science and Brain studies have confirmed that you and your brain’s connect and will determine if you are financially successful or not.
There are enough people in this world who are trapped in their world of having a day in and day out financial problems. They never seem to be able to come out of it.
What are Financial Problems?
We all been there, or at least I have been there. Going through the worry of paying bills and just getting around with little or no money left. I did not like it, and I was always looking for a way to make more money. Today I know it was a process for me to take my happiness into my own hands.
We all know people who work very hard and never come out of there hamster wheel working their but’s of and in the end they have the same financial problems over and over again. I have done the Free Webinar and I was surprised how logically some things are and how easy it is to change your mindset. Share my blog if you know people who struggle in their daily life.
In this blog, I will talk to you about Brain and Science. How to overcome the Chit Chat in your head that is holding you back, and how you can solve your problems once and for all. No more sleepless nights. I believe you want to have a good sleep right?
I always have been interested in Science and how our brain works. But when I came across that article from John Assaraf on how your brain predicts the financial success of yours, I was impressed. Actually to be honest I was shocked.
John even created based on his research and experience a course on how to rewire your Brain. The course is called “The winning game of money.” If you are interested click here. It comes with a free Webinar.
Thousand now has overcome their limiting beliefs, who never thought they could do it.
One question people always ask is why do
they get stuck earning the same amount of income? Year in and year out no
matter how hard they work trying to make more money.
To most people, this is pretty frustrating, and Brain Science now has the answers that explain this problem of working harder and only achieving incrementally better results, if any at all.
I know I been there for years I had a great job loved it but somehow, I felt like no matter what I do I can not cross that income mark to make six figures or even seven figures.
One of the first things I realized is that part of my brain that predicts my income and lifestyle.
I measured my achievement with the hard work and because I had a limited time of hours available I did limit myself. I was the cause which was holding me back — my limiting beliefs.
Science has come a long way and based on the latest Brain Science research the Brain plays a vital role in your Financial achievements.
You see, the part of your brain called front striatal pathway is responsible for your hidden self-image that unconsciously drives your behaviour. In most cases, it can be even stronger than your decisions and conscious desire to earn more income.
Many scientists believe that this small yet powerful pathway in your brain is the reason why most people who win millions of dollars in the lottery tend to sabotage their success and lose all the money in a very short timeframe.
Let me explain this a bit deeper, stay and you will be surprised.
It’s very hard for a person to consistently earn more income than the amount that is locked in their unconscious brain where their hidden self-image and income set-point resides.
The reason so many people get stuck earning the same income over and over again is not that they are not smart enough, or they don’t have the talent or the skill. The reason is that several parts of their unconscious brain have been trained and conditioned to expect a certain amount of income and a comfort zone year in and year out.
Does that start to make sense to you yet?
The Hypothalamus in your brain is
like a thermostat.
Any amount of income that differs from the income set point in their brain will trigger an alarm within the brain that maintains homeostasis. This part of the brain is called the hypothalamus.
Just like a thermostat, the hypothalamus will bring them back to their original income and financial set point and their comfort zone by regulating their thoughts, their emotions and their behaviours.
Once they learn to adjust their hidden brain self – image and their brains financial set point, it becomes easier to earn more income and maintain it.
Do you want to know a few tricks to increase your income? Let me show you a few brain tricks to augment your brain and your self- image.
Try it out nothing to lose. The only thing you can gain is more income. It depends on you how determined you are.
For the most part without you knowing it, this frontal striatal pathway has been developing in your brain your whole life. All of the teachings from your parents, school teachers, friends, siblings and your personal experiences have shaped your life and the way you are and think.
The more you reinforce certain beliefs about yourself the stronger your self-image becomes.
Now I know that you have a conscious idea of how much income you want to earn?
I also know that you have a strong hidden unconscious self -image and a financial setting that quietly sits in the backdrop and unconsciously pulls all of the strings and causing you to maintain whatever level of financial achievement has been programmed into this part of your brain.
The latest brain research shows that any change in the brain is interpreted as stressful.
Yes, even if it is a good change the brain gets stressed because it is not familiar with that.
FMRI Functioning magnetic resistant images studies
Most brain FMRI (functioning magnetic resistant’s imaging studies) have shown that when people have to make a significant change in their life triggers the activation fear centre. The emotional centre of your brain the amygdala causes most people,
a. either to freeze, b. fight the change c. or run away.
Why? …Is your brain doing this?
Explained simply…you are stepping out of your comfort zone and your mind will do anything to get you back into the comfort zone. Thoughts, Emotions and Feelings that you are familiar with.
Re-train your brain or say Re-wire your brain?
How can you retrain your frontal striatal pathway so that your unconscious hidden self- image matches the conscious image and the desire you have in earning more income and living the life you dream.
Brain science suggests that small changes thoughts or behaviours will not activate your fear centres or the fear-driven amygdala.
Visualization of your bigger financial
goals will activate in the brain the nucleus acumens and insula.
These two parts of your brains drive your motivational centre, and they will trigger your feel-good neurotransmitter so you will feel motivated and take action on your goals.
Lets us play a game here. Are you ready?
Imagine this you are sitting at a café or a restaurant of your choice and a famous producer comes up to you and says this …
Hi I am XYZ and I just noticed you from
across the room I am producing a new Hollywood movie and I think that you would
be the perfect person to play a role in the movie.
If you like the script and you agree to be
in the movie, I agree to pay you 5 Million dollars. Now the chances are that
you would be a little bit shocked, a little excited, or even a little bit
So play along and lets see where this goes together.
Let’s assume after a couple of weeks of test and discussions you agree to accept this challenge, and you agree to do your very best to play this role. You sign the agreement, and he hands you the script, and now you have decided to become that role.
So what do you do first?
If you want to nail the part and have people believe you when you act and the filming is on, I imagine that you practise reading the role, performing the role, and you imagine playing the part over and over again in your mind until it felt and you felt comfortable.
Imagine through the practice of the role in your mind and your behaviour you would start to integrate with the role from the script that you are acting, and you would begin to become the role.
It would become more and more familiar to you over time right. Do you enjoy that play role so far?
Now it is all the time when you try to get a new role integrated into your brain. When you are working with your self-image and you add knowledge skills and ability. Your Goal and your vision become one.
Your frontal striatal pathway has this new
image integrated with your old self-image and you have changed from the inside
With this said what you should do every day for the next 5 to 7 days just to get started on activating this part of your brain.
Sit quietly for just 5 minutes and start to see yourself already achieving the financial goals you have for yourself.
First, you see it in your mind’s eyes, role play with yourself and use your imagination that is where it all begins. Plant the seed for the better.
Ask yourself what I am wearing?
Who is with me?
How am I feeling?
What are you doing?
What is the entire emotion that you are experiencing?
See how easily you can overcome your financial problems.
You have to understand the more detailed you are the easier it will be for you to retrain the unconscious self-image of your self.
What I suggest is that you will remember this practice. It is the art of practising until it feels like normal.
It is the same as learning the alphabet or riding a bike, or learning how to drive a car.
Become the Actor of your Life you desire.
Learning how to become the script requires, focus attention and spaced repetition that it really sinks in, so does create the new self-image that you want.
If you enjoyed this and you want to learn more of the real brain science in achieving greater financial goals and financial success that shutter your financial glass ceiling and what you are capable of earning.

It open my eyes on how much chit chat is in my brain and often times I am not very nice to myself. I did criticize myself a lot without realizing it.
I am in no way perfect, but I have my brain under control and I tell my brain and mind what to do not the other way around.
Do you know why people have trouble coming out of their financial problems? Because they rehearse in their mind over and over again the scenario what they will do when they can not pay their bills.
They imagine all in detail what they say and play the conversations in their head. They identify themselves with that role, and it becomes so familiar that they attract the things they don’t want.
Why not change it and learn how to turn the negative into a positive thought and achieve the life of your dreams.

How to declutter my life … make room for the future
Clutter and stress
Not many people are aware of it, but it is a fact that clutter cause stress. Sherrie Bourg Carter Psy.D. Shows that clutter raises the cortisol levels and it causes stress besides draining your energy. The surroundings become stagnant and so are you. A home with a lot of little Nik naks can feel over a period of time overwhelming, those little things called Nik nak can trigger good or bad emotions in us. Say a flower vase you got from your friend, in reality, you don’t like it but for the friendship, you leave near the side table.
Clutter comes in different ways there is clutter that inspires you and there is clutter that de-inspires you is a toleration of clutter. We are oblivious to the fact that we live in a society that collects and stores things. Do you know why we are doing it because through the media and daily life we are “made to think” it is never enough we need more, and more is better? And that is a problem.
Do you know comfort shopping? I mean when you felt down did you go shopping because it made you feel good, and it took of your mind of things that didn’t go so well.. you bought things because it gave you the happy feeling. When you think about it now you seldom or never use it. When the attraction is gone then it becomes clutter or just another thing.. clothes, shoes, gadgets, objects, bags, etc. in the closet that takes up space.
We accumulate so much clutter over the years that we accept it into our lives and adapt it to become normal. You adjust yourself to that environment.
#How to declutter my Life …Make room for your future
I have made it a habit to declutter my home and my environments around meevery year. It feels so good. Honestly, sometimes it shifts a project to completion what came to a standstill.. or a small lottery win comes my way.
I am always amazed when someone declutters their space, and they come back to me with lots of positive changes that happen in their life. People often explain to me that they feel a surge of power and significant things start to shift. It is like new energy awakes under the clutter. It is finally free to evolve.
A bad relationship begins to improve, new opportunities open up, promotion at work, new and inspiring energy in their life, sometimes a windfall of money, new friendships are formed, more motivation and energy.
I hope with this blog to offer you a simple and easy way to detox your living space and clear some or all the clutter from your life.
#How different cluttered areas in your home show you where you have a problem or in your subconscious mind feel uncomfortable about it.
Did you know that different areas in your home are associated with the habit of cluttering? Those are underlying problems, mixed feelings and emotions as well as mental states? ( Don’t worry you are not weird we all have it and do it)
I love this saying ” Live your Life by design and do not Live your Life by default”
Clutter in different areas of your home can show you where you can improve yourself and your life. Each Room signifies for us a different underlying mental state.
#Go Room by Room and the underlying mental statement what your mind wants to tell you.
The Living Room .. how to declutter my life
Having a cluttered Living room shows that you are not honest with yourself and the world. You have problems expressing yourself. You do not show your real potential to the world. You live to the expectations of others. A living room is used in general for entertainment and to avoid that friends and family stay too long and push you into an action phase you don’t like the room to feel comfortable and relaxed.
Clutter in the Dining Room:
Dining room in the house where family meets and takes there meal together. Having a cluttered dining room means there is no communication between family members. Everyone is doing their things. There is no joy, and friction often appears. Everyone is for him or his self. A cluttered dining room can also cause never-ending arguments between family members or partners. If you are single means problems in relationships with others.
How to declutter my life … The Kitchen
Is the heart of a home. When a kitchen is cluttered, it means that you do not give yourself space to breathe.
You might have a hard time looking after yourself said this means you put others first before your needs. It also means that you do not give yourself the love you deserve.
Maybe you observed this as a child from your parents. As the kitchen is a place where you cook food and store food when cluttered, it can lead to emotional eating or stress eating. It also means you believe deep down you do not deserve a healthy and happy lifestyle.
What does a cluttered Bedroom say about you?
When a bedroom is cluttered the first thing comes to mind that you might feel stuck and there are underlying relationship problems.
You might wake up in the mornings and feel you did not sleep as the clutter is draining your energy, make you feel tired, lethargic and inflexible.
Sometimes things are unclear, and you become obsessive about certain things. When sharing the room with a partner, there are underlying intimacy issues involved or difficulties of open up to each other.
A distance between the partner and yourself. The bedroom is a place to relax, and it should be decorated as relaxing as possible. A place where you can go to rest and recharge your battery. A right balance of yin and yang. Clutter in here can make you feel tired, lethargic and confused. I am also talking about electronics. TV, Computer, Mobilephoneetc. should not be in a bedroom.
The Bathroom how to declutter my Life
When a bathroom is cluttered, that is a sign that we haven’t let go of our past. We want to hold on to our history as this is a comforting feeling and we don’t want to move out of our comfort zone. It also says that the person who clutters the bathroom has low self-esteem, and is not happy with themselves.
The bathroom is a room where we clean our-self, take a shower or a relaxing bath. A time to find peace and the most creative inspiration come under the shower. A cluttered bathroom bribes you of your inspirational motivation and creativity. The best ideas come under the shower.
A cluttered Hallway…
Every Hallway that has clutter will stop the energy from flowing through to the other rooms. It becomes stagnant. What in other terms means you are blocking your power and somehow in your subconscious mind you are afraid of letting new things into your life. It is like a wall of comfort build around you.
Motivation will slowly die like a flower without water, and it can also mean you are stuck in a job or relationship you do not like but you don’t want to change either.
You move into a position where you accept it, and you start slowly to surrender.
Clutter or a mess in the Basement…
A basement when cluttered it always shows back to someone who is carrying much weight on their shoulders.
Those people think they have the whole world on their shoulders. There are family conflicts where a person doesn’t want to deal with, relationship problems with old friends, feeling guilty for something or someone.
Having a cluttered basement shows that there are problems from the childhood, past carried with you and you are afraid to let go. You lived so long with that clutter that it has integrated into your aura. It sucks so slowly the energy out of you. Sometimes you don’t feel at home, and you want to break out. Be free …
How to declutter my Life …The Closet
Have you heart about the skeletons in the closet. That is precisely what your clutter means. Most of the items are attached to you in an emotional and sentimental sense. It also means you are hiding the truth and don’t want to face reality or a situation.
A closet is used to store items and specific items after a while has to go, but somehow we hold on to our shoes, our cloth, our souvenirs, the little Nik Nak we collected over the years.
A cluttered closet will negatively impact our ability to acknowledge the future and moving on to a new era in your life. It is like we are the right foot in the future, but with the left foot, you are still in the past. You can not make the transition to a new life. Your collections are holding us back.
If you buy one new piece you should recycle two pieces.
Cluttering the Garage a nightmare for most owners of a car …
Clutter in general in the garage means difficulty in moving forward. A Garage is a place for cars and transportation, and that means the moving in and out of a garage should be as comfortable and as easy as possible.
If the garage is cluttered, it just says you are not ready to move on to another stage in life. If you want to change job or wait for a promotion mentally, that means yes you want to do it, but physically you are not ready to leave your comfort zone. It could also cause social anxiety. Moving forward will not be possible. Two steps forward and 3 steps backwards.
How to declutter my life … The Balcony
Clutter on a balcony suggests that you are not a very social person. You like to hide behind the scenes and let other people take the credit for your work. The balcony is an opening, and when you clutter the extension of your home, it just means our social life is taking a downturn.
You love to be alone it can also cause depression so be aware when the clutter is overtaking the whole balcony space.
Getting rid of your unused items that create clutter is not easy. It is so much more than just recycling the items … there are emotions involved and it takes time to let go. There are sentimental pictures the gifts from a friend, the memories from a lost love. It is an emotional process.
Everyone is cluttering from time to time specific areas of the home. We do it all, and if you pay attention you might see the problems turning up, and it will help you to solve them more comfortable and with a conscious mind.
Releasing the clutter on a subconscious level and a conscious level will shift your mental state and the energy around you. It uplifts your spirit, and you feel lighter in many ways.
It is a fact that the stress created by Information overload and physical clutter with the endless choices required day by day can cause or trigger health issues like generalised panic attacks, depression, overeating or anxiety.
When you start decluttering your home and life, one significant factor is,
work quickly when sorting things otherwise you get distracted. When you read through things, you might get stuck and lose focus. Go room by room or cupboard by cupboard. Take action and declutter your life today. Let go of those unconscious fearsand emotions live your life.
I have created an e- planner with a worksheet on how I start my declutter process. It helps me to keep going and stay focused. It helps me a lot. Download it here
Is Education the key to Success, or is Motivation the key to success? What is the key to success?
I watched a video by Jim Bunch and he talks about the 9 environments. I thought this is so good that I like to share the summary of the video. I believe he is a great motivational speaker and this video made so much sense to me. When do you ask” What is the key to success in life?” The answer lies in the 9 environments…
Why is it that so many people come to the seminar they want to change their life, they buy the books, the course, the tapes, the CD they do all , they are powered up for 2 to 3 days excited and pumped up they have the feeling and want to change the world, they think they found the key to success but what is it that it always happen…
They go back to their life, and the environment takes over they go back to there same old pattern old habits. Then they start again searching for the so-called “What is the key to success”?
Do you know why this is happening?
Why can people not change? Is it because they want to use willpower to change their lives. Willpower alone will not work. Life is made out of different ingredients and you need to consider them all. That is called the nine environments, you need to leverage each of your environments to succeed.
Your Environment the key to success or failure
As humans, we do have a direct relationship with our environment.
You need to consider your environment if you want to change your health, your wealth, your financial situation, your relationship, your success in the long term.
The environment you live in influences and directs your success or failure.
Get the example of a fish who lives in a dirty fishbowl with dirty water how likely is this fish healthy?
Well, a fish is depending on his environment for life. If the water is clean and filled with all the nutrients and minerals he needs his environment is healthy the fish will be healthy if the environment and the water is dirty the fish will be not healthy and his lifespan will be short.
If the environment we are living in is inspiring us we are healthy, wealthy and happy. In other words, they energize us. If the environment we are living in is expiring us means it will drain our energy we are miserable, sick and unhappy. In short, you could say a short time before we have a burnout.
What it means, an expiring environment draining and literally sapping the juice out of you. Your battery is going to be dead soon and if you do not recharge your battery ( means taking a break) you are in a critical condition of a shutdown.
That will also keep us away from reaching our goals and dreams.
Without any power or energy, we are not able to achieve new heights. We are happy just to get by. The longer we live in an environment like that we accept it as normal and we make this our new reality.
Where is the Connection to the Environment? Do you know…
It is YOU … Memetics…
You are in the middle and you are connected and people that are healthy, wealthy, and happy are very conscious about what they let in into their environment.
1. The Memetics is that the key to success?
Memetics is your Memes your concept your ideas and your beliefs. The idea about this is your information, knowledge and ideas you receive, all this will influence you. These are things and ideas that are passed on to you through different channels. As this is passed down to you from your parents, and the people in your life we become a by-product of that influence from that environment.
It is like food intake you are what you eat, the same goes for the environment. Your environment reflects who you are. If you have a lot of friends that are rich and successful the chances that you are successful and rich is there. If most of your friends struggle you might be struggling too.
There is a nice saying around it says “stand guard at the door of your mind”
Can you understand the meaning?
You have to be conscious and aware of what is being programmed into your mind.
Ask yourself when you see the news in the media, watch TV, meet your friends your parents and your family are they inspiring or expiring. If someone would ask you what would you do differently than your parents what would that be?
There are some things you would change but in general, you have adopted from the age 0-7 most of the beliefs from your parents, the media and the tv. All this has been programmed into you.
All the media, the TV, the radio, the print, the social media, it is not the best environment to get healthy wealthy and happy.
It influences you on a certain level. Just looks at kids when they see the advertising on TV some they know the add and repeat what the add is saying. A lot of Advertising triggers exactly the buttons in the consumer to buy the product.
Just go shopping after you watched in your subconscious mind the adverts for say some general product. Next time you go in the supermarket and you come across that product you will buy it.
Can you relate to this …
Most of us wash their hands after we touch the money…
Why? because we are told money is dirty.
Do you remember to get told that if you want to succeed in Life you need to work hard? Only hard work will make you succeed.
The reality is there is no hard work involved in success. It comes and goes with your mindset and environment. “You are what you think”
I like this saying from John Assaraf…

2 people born on the same day same hour the same country but in different cities, should have according to Destiny the same outcome. Right?
Wrong, it depends on the influence of the environment parents, teacher, friends, social network on how that person is shaped with values and characteristics. One might be poor and unsuccessful and the other rich and successful.
Inspiring or Expiring
Take a few seconds and think. Is the environment you live in, inspiring you or is it expiring you.
Is it pulling you out and push you to do more, or is it pulling you in to hold you back? Is the information you get bombarded with each day positive or negative?
I think most people agree that 70% to 80 % of information out there is not inspiring it is actually not helping you at all, most of this information is manipulating you to behave like they want you to behave. ( For example: If I don’t go to this event with my parents they are upset so I might well go. But I hate to go.)
So what can you do about it, you can actually start being more conscious of what you let in into your environment.
There is a reason why they call it TV programming.
If you start to listen to self-improvement videos or audios and do not adjust your outer environment it will pull you back in the same pattern as before. You need to change both the inner environment that is you / your mind and the environment you live and interact with. ( outer environment)
The same goes the other way around. If you change the outer environment but not your mind eventually you will go back to old habits.
The stronger the environment is, either the inner or the outer it will always pull you back into your old behaviours.
We do it each year the first 3 to 4 month of the beginning of the year we have all our good intentions set.
We go and work out lose weight, stop smoking, watch less tv, go more out, have a better relationship, the list goes on and we change some of our routines but eventually before the 4th month comes around we are already back to the old behaviours. Our old environment once again pulled us back. And The Winner Is Your Environment.
Remember the environment is pulling you either forward or pulling you backwards. If you make a change you need to change all. The roadmap to success is in your hand.

Body, Overall health, Your Primary Energy Source, Nutrition, Excercise, Personal care, Health Team, Internal Systems,
Every one of us has a body, different shapes and different forms. Some are happy with their body and some are not. Some are successful and happy, and some are unhappy and frustrated.
So where do we get our energy from…
a. Most of your energy you get from high-quality positive food. If you eat healthy and good clean food you have a healthy body. ( that is your vehicle)
If you eat junk food or microwave food your body will eventually tell you ok that is it, I have enough.
b. The same goes for your mind if you keep a clean mindset and clear thoughts you will be most of the time a positive person.
We all slip and we have low and heights with moods and that is totally ok, just be aware of it. When you catch yourself drifting than take a few deep breaths to come back to a positive state of mind. ( I know it is not always easy and someday impossible I get it )
Think of a Car
Think of your car …you will make sure you fill in the right gasoline, as if you fill in the wrong gasoline the car will go slower and is not running on full power, and eventually the motor will be damaged and the car breaks down. The same logic goes for your body.
After years of mistreating your body, you start to have less energy and eventually fall sick.
Your body is an environment for you, and it has nine other environments around it.
If you are with positive people your day will be filled with great and positive ideas and energy.
If you surround yourself with people who complain and are negative all the time you will eventually become like them. It does not matter how strong and positive you are, slowly you will change with the environment. ( you adapt and that is part of nature)
The nutrition, the exercise, the people, your surroundings that are all Influencers who will affect your health, and your energy.

what and who is stronger when at 10 pm at night you feel hungry and you walk over to your refrigerator to get something to eat especially if you have your favourite food there.
Most of the time the environment wins. “Do you remember the saying the will is strong but the flesh is weak.
Your inner self is your inner architecture. It is your core of you.
“Rich and successful people do not live their life by default, they live their life by design.”
They get life coaches, mentors and make assessments of who they truly are. They find out what is their strength, the weakness they have, the talents they have and the gifts they have been given.
They discover themselves and then design the environment according to there strength, weakness, gifts and talents. The environment is constantly pulling them forward and is not holding them back.
They understand who they are and that makes them what they are. If they need to get things done what is not within their gifts and talents they delegate them to other people.
Keep in mind you will achieve your goals efficiently, effortless and on time when you stop relying on your self to complete your goals and start partnering with your environments.
4.Spiritual Environment is this the answer to success?
A Spiritual Connection to a higher power.
A lot of people get confused between the spiritual environment and religion. Religion means by definition two or more people gathered and share a common belief.
They have a common belief about this thing called spiritual. There are 17 major religions. They have all have a variation in their beliefs but share one thing in common that is the connection to a higher power.
You have to ask yourself do I have environments that Ankers me and or connect me.
Or do I have environments that disconnect me with myself? A good example is social media, even we have more connection now out there but a lot of people feel more disconnected than ever before. There is no more face to face interaction.
When you look at how you stay connected, how do you stay in that sense of flow with the universe ( alignment with the universe) ask yourself is it by prayer or meditation, do you need physical things to connect you like beads, rosary, or singing bowls, or do you have symbols or signs in your home and office to remind you to stay connected. ( religious symbols, like the cross, a Buddha statue, a picture of your god, etc.)
This is all ok. But why do we need to remind us to stay connected? We lost the connection, we have so many things to be grateful for and that reminds us that we are connected. We don’t realize that we breathe Air we take it for granted. If we pollute the Air we only harm our selves. Same goes for water, we take it for granted and if we destroy the resources we kill our selves. We take it for granted and we are not grateful to mother nature.
With well-designed environments, you should feel the flow and harmony, and you should save time, energy and valuable resources by doing your environments properly.
5. Environment is Nature
Nature is life, plants, animals, the outdoors, the geography and the seasons. This is my favourite environment. People who live in a country with 4 seasons do not see much sun and in the winter month, and life can get quite depressing.
A lot of people in seasonal countries have a seasonal affective disorder that happens to humans “us “ who have a body but do not get enough light.
We need light sunlight to give us energy it converts in our body into vitamin D.
Vitamin D is a Mood enhancer and people in a country with lots of sunshine are in general more happy and alive than people with less sunshine.
If you live in a country where you can not go outside for 3 to 4 month a year because you do not like snow or the cold weather does it impact you and your environment? Does it impact your body, yes absolutely.
Let me tell you something you can design environment, you can change the environment, you can influence the environment, and you can leave the environment. Lots of people leave an environment due it does not suit them for a couple of months in a year you can live in a different environment throughout the year.
Why do people live in different environments because they know that the environment is energizing them and it works with them? They know it influences their mind, body, spirit and soul. (They know what is the key to success. )
Not everyone likes the snow and not everyone likes the beach so when we recap this we can add, shift or change environments if it makes us feel better.
6. The next environment we are talking about is your physical environment
This environment is the one we start to change first as it is the easiest to change.
Anything you can see around you is your physical environment. Your car, Your desk, your chair, your carpet, your computer ….
If this physical environment is designed properly, you are focused and efficient.
Your performance is higher. But if you live in a physical environment that is cluttered it will create a scattered mind and you are less efficient. Your performance is lower as this environment will drain you.
One of the easiest environment to upgrade is the physical environment. If you want to start right now then start with the physical environment. Get rid of things that bother you each time you look at it.
There should be no TV and electronics in the bedroom the bedroom is for rest. Electronics do have EMF ( Electromagnetic fields ) and they can keep you awake at night or enhance a broken sleeping pattern.
Those electronics are activating you and do not let you relax. ( the EMF corresponds with your brainwaves and keeps them active instead of letting them slow down.)
On the flip side if you walk around your house with a list and write down all the little things that distract or annoy you, believe it or not, but those things take your focus away, and you will be surprised when those things are fixed how much more energy you have. ( Don’t believe me do it and try it out)
Those things you tolerate each day we call them toleration, and believe it or not but those things they actually keep you from tolerating at your best.
When you do that you actually realize how much those things have you grown roots with them, those things are your past and are holding you back to move on to greater things. ( look at your cloth how many pants have you not worn for a year because they are to lose or to tight, but you keep them there just in case)
7. The next Environment ” your finances”
A lot of people take interest in that but remember you need to improve and design all the environments not only one.
This environment is about your finances and when you have a company or building one you need a team, to be successful. If you struggle in one environment it will take off the focus of the other environment it is like a domino that will go through all the environments in a circle.
Have you seen people struggling in a relationship? What does it do to there finances? It takes the focus off, ( we all say they can’t think about that one now) It impacts your focus the same goes vice versa. How many relationships are being destroyed because there is a struggle in the financial environment?
You have to stop for a moment and ask your self…
Do I do finances by default or by design, you might be surprised that it will trigger something. Ask yourself is it possible to upgrade and redesign my environment to accelerate my success.
It is not only possible it is highly likely that your financial environment will improve. If you upgrade your environment you will upgrade your life.

8. The next environment is Networking is that the key to success
The Internet, your social media networks, your clubs, groups, and your friends and associations. They all define who you are and how successful you will be. Very successful people understand that winning is the by-product of a well-designed network.
Instead of following the networks you randomly bump into, take one step back and think what are the best networks for me this year to improve my thinking, improve my finances, improve my health, my relationships and my business.
A lot of people just join a network because someone else you know is already there and joined the network so you just follow. Facebook makes it easy it shows you how many friends you know in this group. Look at a network as an environment that either inspires or expires you.
If the network inspires me I will participate but if it expires me than it is not a network I want to join. I have a friend and I removed her from my feed as she posted all the negative stuff, I do not want to see that so I decided to remove my friend.
Remember your NETWORTH is often related to your Network. In other words, Money has species recognition, what does that mean?
People who drive Ferraris hang out with people who drive Ferraris, people who build companies hang out with people who build companies.
People who whine, complain and grump they hang out with people who allow them to whine, complain and grump the whole day.
If you are hanging out with people who are successful the odds are that you are successful, if you are hanging out with people who have bad habits, or they are the psychic vampires who drains everyone or they are constantly complaining about life and money it does not matter how strong you are, over time you adjust to that environment and it will drain you or better say it expires you. It means it will pull you backwards.
9. The last environment is your relationships
I left this one for last as this are your Family, friends, your Colleagues, your neighbours, people with whom you connect daily, staff, team members, mentors, coaches, pets, and this is one of the most difficult and hardest for people to change.
Because everybody you are in a relationship with has an environment and most people don’t want to change their environment.
They think they are comfortable but the truth is they are not comfortable they are in reality very uncomfortable but they are very familiar with there environments. That is why they don’t want to change.
So my challenges to you are this, don’t focus on this one first… focus on the physical environment, spiritual, memetics, nature, upgrade your body and so on, you will find that over time the challenges you had in your relationship environment will start to dissipate.
Only then you will realize that changing your relationship environment is actually pretty easy.
Invest a little bit less time with people who are toxic, ( there are a lot of people in a toxic relationship) spent more time with people who inspire, uplift, who are positive and motivate you.
A long time ago I left our little town and went overseas. I started to work for a person who became my mentor for one whole year for free. We went from city to city and from country to country and what I did not realize was that I started to change because my environment changed.
Years after that I went back home to our town and I have great friends their amazing people but they are doing the same thing over and over and they have not changed. They do the same what everyone else does.
Why because their environment did not change? A person the body cannot change when the environment is not changing.
Picture and design your environment to be a constant source of wealth and Ultimate Wealth and Inspiration. That is the key to success.
Are you willing to change your environment to be a constant source of inspiration, ultimate wealth and success?
You see if your environment is not growing and evolving as you grow and evolve you will be living in a state of drag. You will be living with low energy, resistant’s, slow movement rather than living in a state of inspiration.
By designing your environment there is a constant source of Inspiration, you will find your daily habits, your actions, your goals are actually easier to detain and you no longer need to rely on willpower to get the job done. Isn’t that refreshing?
So let’s get started and take inventory of all the nine environments and ask your self this four questions?
Four Questions you need to ask yourself.
Why is this in my environment? ( when you walk around ask yourself why I have this desk, lights, lampshade, pictures on the wall and so on? ) and if it is not inspiring you than get rid of it. When you go into your living room, bedroom etc, ask your self is it designed to inspire me in health, wealth and happiness or it expires you.
What prompted my choice to invite this thing, person objects etc into my life? Was it a conscious choice or was it a gift, or was it an unconscious choice or a momentary choice. ( For example how many of you still have the same outfit as 20 years ago, and you keep it because it might fit one day or holds memories? This thing is holding you back and keeps you in your past. )
Is this serving me to win my ultimate game? Is this serving me to create happiness, health and wealth? If not then maybe it is time to get rid of it. Say goodbye to it.
Ask yourself do I now understand what is the key to success in life?
Once you start to live life by design instead of living life by default, once you accept and learn to upgrade these nine environments,
I promise you will have
you achieve your goals easier,
and you have way more fun with life.
The good news is the moment you start one and you get this energy boost, it will be easier to do the 2ndone the 3rdone you might even get addicted to it. I challenge you to this and get started right now with one thing, not in 10 minutes or one hour start right now to do one thing.
It can be anything, delete emails from your inbox, get rid of some paper that is hanging around you never got around to put it into the shredder or bin, empty a draw that needs reorganising, or turn of the social media for two hours to focus on a project whatever it is… do it now.
Remember everything is an environment and it either pulls you forward and inspires you or it expires you what means it drains you and is holding you back to achieve your goals.
I hope I made you understand “what is the key to success in life. ”

Have you ever thought to use Feng Shui for the Office?
Did you know that in the Asian Countries Feng Shui is widely spread and used? Some of the bigger and very successful companies have their own Feng Shui Masters on a corporate consulting salary.
I have done this for more than 25 years, and I have to admit, I would not sit in an office what I can not arrange the way I want it. I even Feng Shui my Home Office. I even have a Feng Shui Garden. I still remember my first Feng Shui arrangement I did for myself.
I bought all the charms and lucky items I am supposed to have. I had to use cash as those days no credit card. I am sure the lady in that Feng Shui Shop had the time of her Life she knew I had no idea and found always another item for me. Have to say she knew how to sell, as she sucked me right in. When I brought back all the things and took the book and the notes I wrote down from the lady in the Feng Shui Shop, Boy… I thought my god my apartment looks like a Chinese lucky charm shop.
That when I decided there must be another way around it. Then I met Lilian Too and Yap Cheng Hai in Vietnam they came there to do Feng Shui to the Floating Hotel a famous Hotel at that time. I was quite interested in how they solved the problem of the Hotel not making enough money and boy I was impressed. Long story short that when I started to study Feng Shui.
Q:People ask me many times, is it true that when you do Feng Shui in your office, you are more productive?
A: Yes you are, as in plain simple there are directions where you are more productive as they do support you, then there are directions what are less productive because they drain your energy.
Feng shui is a Chinese art which is based on the belief that the way you arrange things within a building, and within the rooms of that building, can affect aspects of your life such as how happy and successful you are. (source Collins dictionary)
My definition is simple, and it is Wind and Water but what means Wind and Water? For me, in simple Terms, it means living in “Harmonie with Nature” or go with the flow.
I practice Feng Shui since 1989. I have studied with some of the respected best Masters from Taiwan, Hongkong and my loved and respected Monk Tai.
What is Feng Shui not?
Feng Shui is not a religion.
Feng Shui has nothing to do with superstition.
Feng Shui is not a Cult.
Feng Shui is also not plastering your office with lucky symbols and objects.
What are the guidelines for Feng Shui at the Office?
Rule over the thumb you can say anything that is feeling weird or awkward to you is not Feng Shui that will drain your energy. Feng Shui means energy and the energy should flow harmoniously and should enhance your energy not drain your energy.
In Europe, people follow the farmer’s calendar or the 100 years calendar for all thoughts of things, like for haircuts, for planting, doing daily tasks it is used widely. My Mother is still using it.
You can feel the energy you are sometimes just not aware of it.
Energy also called Chi comes in many forms.
The word energy derives from the Ancient Greek: ἐνέργεια, translit.energeia, lit. ‘activity, operation’, which possibly appears for the first time in the work of Aristotle in the 4th century BC. In contrast to the modern definition, energeia was a qualitative philosophical concept, broad enough to include ideas such as happiness and pleasure. (source; Wikipedia)
What is Negative Energy also called Shar Chi?
Imagine you enter a room where two people have a heated discussion and or fighting in one room, the moment you enter the room you feel the tense energy. I am sure you have experienced that before. That is Shar CHI.
What is Positive Energy also called Chi?
Imagine you are on the beach putting your feet into the water, and the waves touch your feet and legs. The smell of the ocean and the peace and sound of the waves gives you total freedom you feel good.
Alternatively, just getting a raise lifts up your energy when you receive your salary slip. That is CHI.
Most of the time we are not aware of the positive or negative energy we only talk about a good feeling and a bad feeling.
Did you know that being successful also plays a big part in overcoming your fears, worries and negative thoughts?
Learn how to use your #brain—your most powerful tool—to actually make your biggest #dreams come true
A few simple Feng Shui Tips for your office.
Make sure you never sit with your back to the door. ( that will activate the energy for backstabbing and unpleasant surprises. in short, things happen, and you are not aware off only in the last moments before it hits you )
Sit as far as possible away from the entrance with this you can assure your self a “command” position. Do you know why, when you are sitting and looking at the door that is where the energy comes in as well as people? In this case, people symbolize the meaning of flow and money.
One of my Sifu told me ones do not sit facing the window as robbers go out the window, what means people will take your money, take advantage of you or cheat you.
It is essential that you sit with your back to the wall if that is not possible and you are sitting against a window make sure you have a tall building outside the window if that is not possible use a picture with a mountain to symbolise the support. (This is when you can not avoid it. )
Your office chair should have a tall backrest to keep you supported by your superiors.
Do you know that everyone has a Sheng Shi Direction what means Money Direction? Do you want to know your Money direction?
Never sit in line with the door. The energy good or bad what enters will hit you and eventually will hurt you unconsciously. ( shoulder and neck problem)
Very important for entrepreneurs, whatever room you are using to work, do not face away from the door your business symbolically comes through the door so sit facing the door as you can welcome and see ahead of the excellent business opportunity
Please consider this advise and do not arrange your workspace so that you can see the stairs, closets, elevators, escalators, toilets, kitchen, and storage rooms.
Do not look straight into a corridor the energy will hit you like an arrow.
Place an aquarium or tabletop fountain either in the East, North, or Southeast. ( consider that it should not bother you, it should be joy looking at it)
Keep any water fountain or aquarium clean. When you use a water fountain or Aquarium make sure it is not behind you. Water in Feng Shui is prosperous but when placed in the wrong place it can be the opposite.
If you work mainly on your computer, then with your computer you should face your right direction and that is your money direction. Not everyone has the same money direction that depends on your date of birth and time of the birth hour, as well as the place you are born.
Place a safe made out of metal in the northwest area of your office to enhance financial abundance and financial prosperity.
If you don’t know your prosperous directions to use, and the bad directions to avoid, sign up for our calculation sheet. You can also send me an email with your birthdate, birth hour and place of birth and I will calculate it for you. Consider avoiding to have big tall mirrors in your Office as they can reflect negative energy from clients to other people in the room.
Keep your desk clean and tidy. Otherwise, you feel overwhelmed and will stress out. ( Energy can not flow and will get stuck between you and your office)
Sometimes we can not always do Feng Shui as we sit in an office with other people, but there is always a way how to feng shui at the office. Do it around your space.
Use Feng Shui Colours for your Office. Have the right Balance of light and dark colours. When you use objects to decorate your office, consider the five elements and keep them in yin and yang balance. ( soft and hard surfaces, smooth and rough textures in window treatments, furniture and flooring. )
You can also use Feng Shui plants, that said those are plants who can help to remove the EMF ( Electro Magnetic Fields) in the office. Feng Shui Plants like the Golden Pothos, as it removes chemicals from the air, like formaldehyde and carbon monoxide.
It is essential that you have the right balance of yin and yang when decorating your workspace. ( When you enter your office, you should have a good feeling)
If you love music, then listen to your favourite radio station as that will lift up your mood. ( I constantly work with the radio on it inspires me)
A big NO NO is putting files from your office on the floor. Treat them with respect as they represent your past, present and future business. It is your income. Treat it with respect.
Keep the cables and cords of your equipment well hidden. ( they symbolise the connection and communication if they are messy than the conversations and contact getting lost and falsely understood with clients and staff.
Feng Shui at the office, try to clean the clutter in your office but when you do so, don’t forget to do it with intention. Try to establish some rules with the colleague to keep certain areas clean.
Feng Shui is a simple art and when followed correctly it is a very powerful tool to enhance your work and efficiency. If someone tells you that this is Feng Shui but you feel uncomfortable then don’t do it. I love Feng Shui as it is living in Harmonie with nature and yourself.
Do you catch yourself having sometimes conversations with yourself?
Do you talk to yourself from time to time, make sure that you talk positively with yourself. We often play a conversation in our mind especially if we are angry, did you realize you are not doing yourself a favour with that.
I always wondered how all the world’s top performers use to wipe their brain clean of ANY and ALL negative thought patterns? I discovered this and I am impressed. Navy seals use it while training and preparing for dangerous missions.
