Get Rick Quick Schemes - Pay dayIn all my years of working with entrepreneurs and solopreneurs get rich quick schemes can cost you and your business to go belly-up. Let’s face it Rome was not built in a day and your desire for instant success is not good for your health and happiness.

There are many myths that contribute to this mistaken thinking and I am going to share a personal experience with you which will expose the truth about get rich quick schemes.

Here’s the myth that triggered this revelation: Stress causes you to go bankrupt

Wayne: Cecil, is it the stress that causes bankruptcy?

Cecil: No, the stress has nothing to do with bankruptcy. I’ll say that emphatically. It has nothing to do with stress.
The reason why I personally went bankrupt was because I thought I could speed things up.

I could make my millions faster than everyone else. “What are these other guys talking about? Who cares? Let’s make it fast.”

I lived the life after graduating. I was in the fast lane.

I did everything so fast and so quick. I got everything I wanted.

I made the money I wanted to make and had the investments. But I lost it all.

I discovered that in life there is a process. Think of birth. It takes about nine months to deliver. If you think of investing, it takes a process. You can’t force it. You can’t make it happen faster.

That’s the way most people are living. Everybody wants to do things quicker and faster. When I went bankrupt, I actually pushed the button. I was driving in the fast lane at 200% faster than I was supposed to drive. I wanted it yesterday.

Life is not like that. It’s a process. You need to follow and go with the process. If you plant a crop, there’s a harvest. You have to take the time before you harvest it. That’s what it’s all about.

In the context of investing and making the “almighty dollar”, I was under the false pretence that I could do it faster than anybody else. I paid the consequence.

However, I learned my lesson.

I also found my blessing through this journey.

That’s why in the last 14 years I have created the 3 step Empty Your Cup® Process to teach entrepreneurs and solopreneurs how to relax, slow down and either eliminate or manage chronic pain so that you can experience profound peace, power and work life balance.
