Black-and-white photo showing two hands holding coins Have you finally reached the end of your rope? Have you had enough of eating instant noodles 3 times a day? Are you fed up with watching others live the good life while you’re left stuck in your ever-deepening rut of lack and self-loathing? Are you tired of poverty?

Then you’re reading the right article.

Here I will offer you knowledge which has helped me go from living in lack to being in plenty. You will find resources and tools which will help you change your inner state from one which perpetuates poverty to one which manifests wealth in all its forms.

Sound too good to be true? Well, it isn’t. It has worked for me, so it will work for you. As long as you do the work consistently and keep going no matter what, you will see results.

So let’s get to it.

Poverty Is The Result Of An Inner Condition

“Poverty is the consequence of an inner condition, not an outer situation.”

That is a quote by Robin Sharma, which I read in the book “The 5AM Club”. It reflects a deep spiritual principle, a universal law, which goes: as within, so without.

Our regular state of being expresses itself in the material world.


We get what we are, not what we want.

Ever heard of the Law of Attraction? The law gets a lot of hate from “technical people” (I was one of them). But it absolutely works. We attract what we are.

How is it that happy, healthy, successful people always seem to attract other people like themselves, while miserable, sick and poor people attract others like themselves?

How is it that some people seem to flow from one great opportunity to the next with minimal resistance from the world, while others struggle just to get by?

Why does the world seem to be divided between the “haves” and the “have-nots”? And how come that divide is growing? What to do the “haves” have that the “have-nots” don’t have? We’re all human beings, after all. We all have the power to create the change we want in life. How come some can do it while others never seem to be able to change their destiny?

The answer lies in our inner condition. Those of us who go through life in scarcity; believing life is a struggle, that money is hard to make, that wealthy people became wealthy through luck, will always make choices which make those beliefs true.

Those of us who live in abundance; believing life is a joyful adventure, that money comes easily, and that wealth can be made from nothing, will always make choices which make those beliefs true.

As within, so without.

Victims Believe Their Poverty Is The World’s Fault

I grew up in Mexico City. It’s a tough place to live. You see scarcity everywhere. Beggars populate the streets and children run around asking for money, looking up at you with big eyes dripping with poor misery, manipulating you into handing out cash.

I grew up believing people were poor because of circumstances beyond their control. Since I believed that, I also accepted that my poverty was beyond my control. Unsurprisingly, I was poor for a while.

I was a victim; I believed I had no power to change my situation. Just like the people who begged for money on the streets of Mexico City. I had surrendered my creative power. It was no surprise that I was poor!

Our external world is an expression of our internal world.

Our beliefs become expressed in the real world, through our choices.

I will not deny that many, many people live through terrible childhoods which leave them traumatized. Trauma is real and widespread in our world. Trauma turns us into victims.

But we can heal our trauma. We are human beings, our bodies and minds have the capacity to heal. Victims allow their trauma to dictate their choices. Creators heal their trauma and make new choices.

Victims surrender their destiny to their environment. They believe there’s nothing they can do to help themselves, so they cross their arms and complain.

But that’s FALSE. Everyone has the power to change their choices. To say otherwise is to believe we have no free will.

We have free will. We have the power to make new, abundant, empowering choices, in any realm of life.

Is it hard? Yes

Does it take time, sometimes years, to change? Yes

But what would you rather do with your time alive?

Pick Your Difficulty

We get to pick our difficulty.

Being wealthy is hard. So is being poor. What difficulty do you choose?

Being healthy is hard. So is being unhealthy. What difficulty do you choose?

Being free is hard. So is being a prisoner of your circumstances. Again, what difficulty do you choose?

Will you make the choices which change your inner condition to one of rich abundance? Or will you surrender the power to create the life you want to your circumstances?

How Does Our Inner Condition Develop?

Our inner condition is the result of our programming. We are all programmed, from the moment we’re born. The deepest programming happens in the first few years of our life.

Who and what does the programming? Our parents, our extended family, our friends, the media we consume, our teachers… every stimulus from our environment programs us to have certain beliefs.

Why do you think Ferrari and Lamborghini do not advertise on television? Because the people who can afford Ferraris and Lamborghinis are not watching television.

Television advertises things like McDonalds, Wal Mart, cheap insurance, cheap entertainment, cheap everything. So what does television program you to be?

Cheap. Cheap with yourself and cheap with life. It’s no wonder so many people are poor, they dedicate their attention to figuring out how to “save more” rather than “create more” and thus “earn more”.

We are conditioned by our environment.

Until we choose otherwise.

Growing up in Mexico City made me believe poverty was the result of an outer condition. I’ve had to work tremendously hard to deprogram myself from those beliefs.

I chose new beliefs. Only after I did was I able to see how my childhood in Mexico City had set me up to believe life was a struggle and money was hard to make.

But I did it. And if I can do it so can you.

What Can You Do About It?

I’ll be candid. Changing our inner state takes time and work. It’s hard. It’s the hardest thing anyone can ever do. It leads to explosive confrontations with our inner-shadows which demand our full courage to emerge victorious.

You let go of old relationships which were a product of your old beliefs.

You feel like you’re lost, as you travel down new and unexplored territory.

You wonder whether you’re being foolish, if you shouldn’t return to the haven of the known; familiar chains are more comfortable than unfamiliar freedom.

It’s through these difficulties that our heroic selves are unleashed. There is a hero within each of us. In many of us that hero has been buried under a mountain of fears, but there the hero remains, waiting to be set free.

Mural of David Bowie

As an example, look at David Bowie. David Bowie was an unchained hero. He went from being a working class kid from Brixton, to internationally acclaimed extraterrestrial rock star.

Where most hide their weirdness, Bowie embraced it. Think he wasn’t ridiculed for it? Of course he was! That was David Bowie’s environment, telling him to stay where he was, to conform with living life the way he was “supposed” to.

Do you think David Bowie wasn’t afraid? He was.

But his fear didn’t stop him from expressing that fabulous, star-drenched inner hero of his.

And look at what he achieved.

The World Can Be Yours, If You Do The Work

Human beings are supremely powerful. Make no mistake about that. Look at what our species has accomplished! We went from being scared, little apes on the African Savannah, to being the putting robots son Mars and probing the mysteries of the universe.

Through creativity and cooperation we engineered the world into one of comfort.

But that comfort comes with a cost which most of us don’t appreciate. It keeps us stuck. To grow means to be uncomfortable. Once you internalize that fact, you begin to see how most people are kept stuck in poverty/sickness by the intoxicating allure of comfort.

Your discomfort is where your hero lives. Every time you face your discomfort, you release that inner hero just a little more. You can face discomfort by:

  • Making your bed
  • Waking up early to exercise
  • Buying fewer sweets to cut down on sugar intake
  • Learning something new
  • Talking to more people
  • Writing down what scares you

Once you’ve faced discomfort enough times, you will look back at your old self and see someone who is unrecognizable. Because that person is no longer you. You have changed your internal state.

And what happens when your internal state is different? Your external state changes.

Changes to what? You choose! That’s the brilliance of being human! We get to choose how we change!

There Is No Quick Fix

I do not offer quick fixes. I do not offer “get-rich-quick” schemes or anything like that.

I offer discomfort, sweat and sacrifice. We must sacrifice our comfort on the altar of greatness, if we are to live a magnificent life.

And we must sacrifice daily for months. And we must keep doing it, without seeing results, for months.

Is it hard? It’s the hardest thing you’ll ever do. It’ll be lonely. You’ll feel like you’re going crazy. You’ll want to quit and return to your familiar comfort, even if that means being poor.

But that’s how real power is born. Not the external power that comes from a fancy title or a corner office. It’s internal power.

It’s the kind of power that allows you to sit back and know, in your heart of hearts, that you got this.

Like a lion. Do lions ever look stressed? They don’t. They walk around like they own the Savannah. Lions know they got this show down cold!

Look at that lion swagger.

We can all become lions. I did it. You can too. There is a process to it. It’s scientific and spiritual. I had to figure this out through trial and error, by reading a ton and trying new things.

But you don’t have to do that.

I can show you the process.

You have to be committed.

Failing is encouraged, it means you’re growing. What separates the victors from the rest is that failure doesn’t stop them. You can fall, as long as you get back up, you’re still in the game.
