Neural Network for Financial Success

Neural Network for Financial Success

As an “entrevestor,” it saddened me to walk into a restaurant one day and I could not find a single customer in it.

By the time I finished my meal, not a single person has yet to step into the restaurant.

What was disheartening was that it served reasonably good food and at an affordable price.

While settling the bill, I couldn’t help but offer some feedback to the boss.

In a courteous way, I shared with her how to attract more customers, provide better services, and improve bottom lines.

Throughout the discussion, I was happy she was all smiles and appreciative of my kind gesture and contribution.

I’m sharing this story because there’s a moral to this story that can inspire many people, including investors and entrepreneurs on their wealth-creation journey.

In the process of helping many people, I help them discover that the biggest enemy to achieving financial success lies between their ears.

Most people have not conditioned their minds,
programmed their brains, and wired their
‘neural network’ for financial success.

While growing up, their parents did not teach them how to be rich and wealthy.

In schools, not many teachers are focused on being financially intelligent.

Few are able to impart financially literacy knowledge and skills to their students.

Perhaps, that’s why financial literacy education is not a major part of academic curriculum.

In most workplaces, employers are not inclined to help their staff improve their financial literacy levels.

They’re concerned about increasing unnecessary expectations and losing their employees.

To make matters worse, there are very few programmes that can help ordinary persons improve their financial positions and achievements.

Just as importantly, not many people are willing to pay the price, make necessary sacrifices, and discipline themselves to learn, improve and achieve better financial results.

As a result, most people have not honed their reticular activating system (RAS) to enhance their financial success.

The RAS is a part of the brain’s attention centre. It’s responsible for regulating transitions between sleep and wakefulness, including levels of consciousness.

In addition, it’s also the gatekeeper of thoughts, emotions and external influences.

As a switching centre, the RAS processes a constant bombardment of a lot of information that are received through all the five senses.

It sieves out crucial information to be transmitted to the conscious mind so as to coordinate integrated responses to external stimuli.

As a result, the RAS plays an important part in activating the right focus, motivation, and action to achieve financial goals.

Having taught many people about vital functions of the RAS, I can only count a few people who are aware of the RAS and are sharpening their RAS to achieve financial freedom.

Besides teaching my students different strategies and techniques to develop the RAS in order to create, grow, spend and protect wealth wisely, I also encourage my students to carry out an ongoing series of fun work.

I use “fun work” instead of words like homework, exercises or practices. These value-added activities strengthen their RAS.

I taught them that wherever they are, they should always explore ways to help improve the people and environment around them.

That is why, I am always writing many letters to the government, mass media, and companies to give them suggestions on improving the economy and society.

By doing so, I’m also sharpening my RAS to improve my financial investment and entrepreneurial initiatives.

Whatever my students are doing – whether they are reading, talking with another party, or looking at anything, they should be operationally-ready to find ways to improve their financial assets and positions.

Whenever my students come across a profit-making enterprise, project or activity and even if they are not involved in it, they should challenge themselves to come out with ways to strengthen the business, increase number of customers and sales volume, and improve profits.

By doing so, they learn to focus on wealth-creation.

They also learn to be more curious about money, and to research and reflect more deeply into the art and science of improving financial bottom lines.

As they carry out these fun works, they develop their RAS to help them make the world a better home.

They also learn how to raise more financial resources to serve a higher calling and fulfill a worthier cause.

Please look within and around you right now.

How can you do more and do better for yourself, others and the environment?

How can you earn more money to help you live a more meaningful, exciting and fulfilling life?

How can you capitalise on tomorrow’s financial challenges and start resolving them from today?

How can you leverage on tomorrow’s financial opportunities and start profiting from them from today?

As you constantly ask yourself these questions and act on the responses, you can sharpen your RAS and put yourself on the right track to become rich and wealthy.Go4It!

I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
