Why Would You Work on Personal Transformation If You Can Barely Put Food on the Table?
Today, 43 million Americans rely off food stamps to get by. Only a handful of people still have any real savings. People with a good job wonder if it's going to last.
In such dire circumstances why would any one in their right mind want to invest money in a personal transformation program? Shouldn't survival come first?
Survival! That's priority number one for the Inner Critic.
Real survival thinking, however, is far-seeing. We aren't cavemen fighting the elements with no idea whether we'll have something to eat tomorrow.
Families living off food stamps could find themselves starving if the government was forced to shut down or the currency collapsed. People living paycheck to paycheck would only need one medical emergency to send them spiraling into disaster.
I pray your situation isn't that extreme. But we only have to look past the underreported unemployment numbers to know this is where the developed world is heading.
And we can go on blaming the economy, the government, pollution, globalization, Wall Street and WalMart.
But it won't help much.
We have to take responsibility for our own lives.
So it's a paradox... Becoming a member of Liberate Your Life is the very thing that enables financially challenged people to achieve the mental clarity necessary to become abundant. On the other hand, it's pretty much near impossible to justify to your Inner Critic to buy a personal development product when you're charging your groceries to your credit cart.
Now, of course, most people need not sacrifice food to become a member of Liberate Your Life. Instead they could cut out cable TV for a month. Skip taking your family to a restaurant or movie one weekend could also pay for the whole program. Or perhaps there are books, DVDs, furniture or other items around your home that you're not using that you could sell on eBay or have a yard sale.
The Inner Critic, however, can even be even more clever in arguing why you can't afford Liberate Your Life....
Let's say you cut the cable. Your Inner Critic will immediately tell you that you're just thinking about yourself and ignoring your family's dire need to watch commercial TV. Your family may even say its okay and that they'll borrow videos at the library (and maybe even a book) but underneath your Inner Critic makes you feel like you're a bad parent or spouse.
Even if you think your family would shun you for diverting funds from HBO to make yours and their life better... it really comes down to a "distorted sense of survival." As a child we needed our family to survive. As caveman we needed a tribe to stay alive.
You don't want to lose your tribe.
In essence, your Inner Critic is telling you that if you join Liberate Your Life your family will abandon you because you spent money they wanted to use for something else. Without your family you will not be able to meet your own needs. And you will die.
None of this is conscious.
But it's pretty effective subconscious trickery on the part of your Inner Critic.
That's why only an elite group of people join programs like Liberate Your Life.
Obviously, if you're struggling to put food on the table, joining a $7,000, 7-day "heal-your-inner-child" workshop that requires a $1200 plane ticket, $1400 in hotel fees and $700 in restaurant bills is simply insane.
But for most people who are able to afford an internet connection, the fee involved in being a member of Liberate Your Life is hardly insurmountable.
Sure, your Inner Critic may not like me pointing this out. I've just torn down its number one excuse for keeping you from making some massive improvements in your life.
But I'm not here to help out your Inner Critic. That's the job of the mainstream media. I'm here to help you. And if your Inner Critic doesn't like it – all the better.
Looking at it consciously, we both know that your family isn't going to leave you over a small investment like Liberate Your Life.
But anyone who avoids transforming their subconscious will forever be a slave to their habits, moods and negative beliefs – which are detrimental to living an abundant and truly meaningful life in the 21st century.
Join Liberate Your Life if you haven't already. You can ask for your money back at anytime. If you do all the exercises in Liberate Your Life I guarantee that you will have the clarity and inner fortitude to liberate yourself from all of life's stresses – financial or otherwise (or I'll give you double your money back).
How about that for a worst-case scenario? Even if you use the program completely and decide it's not for you, you get TWICE as much money as you spent on the program. There's not even a stock, bond or other investment that will literally guarantee you a minimum 100% return on your money. So even if your Inner Critic says you don't have the money, get the program, do the program, and then get double your money back in 6 months.
