Why Prosperity And Abundance Techniques Fail — Part 3

I’m going to continue my discussion of why the attract abundance and prosperity and how to attract money techniques fail in this post, then we’re going to shift gears for a while and come back to the discussion in the future.

Like the Phase 1 dynamic I discussed in the last post, this next reason is HUGELY responsible for why so many of the techniques fail to work — at all or reliably.

attract abundance and prosperityI’m talking about the gigantic difference between ideas and concepts … and Experience (with a capital E).

So many people, including me in my younger years, believe if we understand something, that gives us power that can lead to transformation in and of itself.

For example, we believe if we understand we’re really Spiritual Beings having a physical experience, that somehow helps us experience the Infinite Abundance that’s our natural state.

It doesn’t.

As another example, we think if we understand we’re all One, we’re all part of one Consciousness, that somehow helps us experience that Oneness. It doesn’t.

As another example, many Players who are aware of The Teachings believe if they understand that everything in the physical world is ultimately an illusion, a hologram, that gives them power to change things.

It doesn’t.

Ideas and concepts can be tricky. Knowing about them, understanding them, sometimes seems to be Experience, feels like Experience, but it’s not.

Ideas, concepts, intellect, logic and understanding cannot attract abundance and prosperity or attract money …

Intellect, logic and understanding of ideas and concepts that accurately point to Truth are often an important and valuable first step, but something must happen to turn those ideas and concepts into actual EXPERIENCE or nothing changes.

For those of you aware of The Teachings, that “something” is knocking out the cloud cover, or seriously undermining its structural integrity.

That’s what leads to True Transformation.

That’s what I found a way to do — turn ideas and concepts into actual Experiences Of Truth — for myself and others — how turn ideas and concepts into True abundance and prosperity and the ability to Truly attract money.

Much more to come. Stay tuned.

Why Prosperity And Abundance Techniques Fail — Part 1

In a recent post, I asked you to take an honest look at prosperity and abundance techniques and to see that the world and very few individual lives have actually changed after all the time, money, effort and energy invested in them.

Today I’m going to start a discussion of the “Big Why” behind that obvious fact. I say “obvious fact,” because it IS what you see if you look closely, objectively, and with brutal honesty. Many people will not or cannot do that, of course, because they’re mesmerized by lies, illusions and stories, and have an investment in certain beliefs being true.

We’ll start with the 4 most obvious reasons why the manifesting abundance and develop an abundance mentality techniques fail, and then continue the discussion in future posts by diving into the less obvious reasons, which are actually far more important for us to discuss.

The 4 most obvious reasons why prosperity and abundance techniques fail …

Reason #1: People Don’t “Do” Anything

This is one of those “Duh … of course” reasons, and yet it’s rampant in the world, or what I now call “Story Space.”

That is, people listen to an audio, watch a video, attend an event, read a book, discover techniques, but never apply them. There are zillions of reasons why they don’t apply the techniques, but they don’t, and therefore, nothing changes.

Reason #2: People “Do” Something In A Half-Assed Way Or Change The “Recipe”

This is rampant “out there” in Story Space too. Someone will discover a technique that has 5 steps, for example, and intentionally (or carelessly) skip the 4th step, only doing steps 1, 2, 3 and 5.

Or they look at the 5 steps, decide they “know better” than the expert they learned from, and alter one or more of the steps. They therefore change the “recipe” and are then surprised (interestingly enough) when the “cake” doesn’t turn out correctly, or as “tasty” as they hoped.

Or, they take the new technique, and another technique they like or believe in or have an investment in, and try to cobble them together to create a new “super technique.” By doing that, however, they again change the “recipe,” and the cake rarely turns out well, even though many will insist the super technique is better.

There are many variations on this theme. You get the idea. You’ve probably done it yourself. I know I did in Phase 1.

Reason #3: People Are Profoundly Impatient And Give Up Too Soon

People who “sell” things are fond of making Big Promises about how fast a result can be produced using their magic bullet technique (which, by the way, I never do). As a result, many people are taught or conditioned to become what I call “profoundly impatient.”

They want results “yesterday,” and if they don’t get them as fast as they’d like, as fast as they were promised, or as fast as someone else claimed to get the result, they abandon the technique and move on to the latest fad or flavor “super technique” of the day.

I could write a thousand blog posts about this one reason alone, but you get the idea. Again, it’s likely you’ve fallen prey to this. I know I did, over and over, in Phase 1.

Reason #4: People Trust The Mind When They Shouldn’tprosperity and abundance

Most self-help, personal development, and success systems tell you to begin by setting goals. By “setting goals,” they mean getting clear on what you want, getting very specific on what you want, and getting clear on when you want it.

You ask yourself questions, fill out forms, write freely on paper, create Vision Boards, whatever. That’s the magic formula.

But here’s the thing. Where do the goals come from? Where do the precise details come from? Where does the preferred timing come from?

The mind.

And what is the mind filled with? Mostly lies, illusions and stories that aren’t True.

Therefore, what we pump through the super techniques is likely to be filled with lies, illusions, stories and distortion.

Therefore, for reasons I’ll discuss in future posts, we don’t get what we want, we don’t enjoy it if we do get what we want (or our overall quality of life doesn’t really change), or we get what we want, temporarily, but the change doesn’t last.

If All The Prosperity And Abundance Techniques Are So Magical, Why Hasn’t The World Changed?

Millions of people bought copies of a book called The Secret that claimed to offer a magic formula for creating prosperity and abundance and “attracting” whatever you want.

Millions of other books have been sold claiming to offer magic formulas for developing an abundance mentality, how to attract money, prosperity thinking, wealth consciousness, on and on.

On top of all those books, zillions of DVDs, CDs, ebooks, online courses, videos and audios have been shared also claiming to offer magic formulas.

All told, millions of people have spent God knows how much time, money and energy applying the magic formulas for manifesting abundance.

And this isn’t just happening now. It has been going on throughout all of recorded history.

prosperity consciousness

So here are two million dollar questions for you …

  1. Is the world a more prosperous and abundant place as a result of all that time, money, energy and effort?
  2. Is the average person who applied the magic formulas (including you) experiencing more prosperity and abundance on a consistent basis?

The truth?


Oh sure, there are lots of stories about people who applied the magic formulas and experienced more prosperity and abundance, but …

Some are true, many aren’t true, and the vast majority experienced temporary increases in abundance that didn’t last.

And don’t even get me started on whether their overall quality of life improved, even if their net worth or bank account did (although I will “get started” in a future blog post).

The bottom line is, after all the millions of dollars, hours, and energies invested, with few real exceptions, the world hasn’t changed at all, and very few individual lives have either.

Not one bit.

In fact, many would say the current “recession” is one of the worst on record, and others fear the worst is yet to come.

So here’s the next million dollar question …


If the formulas are so powerful and magical, why hasn’t the world, your life, and the lives of millions of others throughout the world changed?

There’s gotta be a reason.

Stay tuned to this blog and I’ll reveal the answer, step by step, over time, one piece at a time.
