Liberate your life (with our help).
We review 4 related topics below:
– ATTITUDE (the core)
– health (the foundation)
What do we manage?
for investors: brokerage accounts
for business owners: websites and online marketing (including PPC, email, videos, social media)
We offer customized consulting and management services to investors and business owners. The core distinction of our process is that we target a series of breakthroughs that will systematically liberate you from whatever has been limiting you.
We begin with whatever priority is most relevant for you. Four issues that either limit you or liberate you are attitude, health, wealth, and time.

For people who are at the most advanced stage (with an abundance of free time plus stable health and finances), we focus exclusively on the issue of attitude. For us, attitude is not a vague concept. It refers to the specific habits in the use of language. Change your language and you change how you relate to life. Why? Because you interpret life through the filter of language.
In other words, you use language to organize your life. Of all the different possible ways that you could use language to organize your life, those are all of the attitudes that are available to you.
Your attitude is key to what you notice, to how you relate to what you notice, to the experience produced by how you relate to what you notice, and to your behavioral responses to your experience. So, by exploring new practices in the use of language, you can change your experience of your circumstances even without changing your circumstances. You do not respond to your circumstances directly, but only to your subjective experience of them. So, by changing your experience, your response automatically changes. Whren your response changes, your results change. When your results change, that means you produce new circumstances.
Adopting even just one new attitude will liberate you from being stuck in a single attitude. How many different attitudes do you want to explore? That depends on how liberated you are motivated to be!
How much time does it take to change your attitude? That depends on a few things.
For one thing, it can be useful to know how your current attitude(s) can be useful. What outcomes do they promote?
Until you recognize the value of your current attitude(s), it can be hard to admit that a particular attitude is not you. It is something you do. It is a tool that you can use. It is simply a persona (or a role).
When people say “I am not that kind of person,” that is an attitude of anxious defensiveness (which has been layered on top of some other attitude which they are identifying as “the kind of person” that they are). What kind of person was I? I had an attitude… eventually just the same basic attitude all over the place. What was my attitude? “I am stuck” was a big part of it. “The reason that I can’t is because…” was another familiar version of the same attitude. We could call it “the victim attitude.”
Like me, you can easily stop being “the kind of person who only has one attitude.” You can be a person who is liberated from just having one attitude. How did I stop being stuck in one attitude? I realized that I never had been stuck in an attitude. I realized that there are many possible attitudes and any one attitude is something that I could practice… or stop practicing.
How did I stop? That is kind of like asking “after I started clapping, how did I stop clapping?” An attitude is something that I do. For me, it took quite a while to realize that. The more that I interacted with people who recognized that my “victim attitude” was just one habitual way of using language, the faster I recognized how habitual it was for me. I was inattentive to how I was using language. I was habitually organizing my life in a way that produced the experience of “being victimized” (as in despair / desperation / depression).
I noticed the contrasts between how I habitually used language and how some people that I admired used language. I liked their way better. I also liked the results that they produced better.
VICTIMS OF TIME AND MASTERS OF TIME
What is the main difference between a victimized attitude to time and a liberated attitude to time? A victim never had enough time. Time (according to a victim) is *always* victimizing the victim (again, not just occasionally or temporarily, but spoken as an eternal truth).
A liberated person is much more hesitant to say yes to invitations and requests. They will be cautious about habitual activities and wasting time. They will even be cautious about starting activities under stress. They address stress first, get clear on their priorities, and then look for more efficient, more intelligent ways to produce relevant results, thus saving enormous amounts of time that “victims” waste.
They are relaxed about presumptions and expectations. They regularly review presumptions and verify them. If presumptions do not match with reality, they do not argue with reality or attempt to reform it. They update their presumption to match their direct observations. If they ever do get offended (because of a violated expectation or presumption), they do not “feed a grudge.” If someone else did not behave in accord with their priorities or preferences, the liberated person changes their own patterns of action.
Generally, the main underlying issue that causes anyone to be stressed about time is a concern for a lack of money. People who say that they do not have enough time often mean that they do not have enough money and they “just need more time to get more money.”
Or, someone may not know how to use their time well to access wealth (or money). Or, someone may know what they need to do, but lack a certain competence. To develop competence takes time. For some people, they need to access more money so that they have the time to develop relevant competencies. So, the issue of wealth is closely connected to the issue of time.
Some people seem to use wealth up in their own personal habit of self-sabotage. How do you never have enough money? Use up your cash as quickly as you collect it.
How do you stop that pattern? You could select certain expenses as priorities and then address those expenses first. You might pay those expenses. You might get an extension to pay them late. You might even take actions to eliminate those expenses. However, you do not pay anything else until you are comfortable with how you will be handling your priority expenses.
So, you prioritize. You organize. You seek relevant assistance (even assistance with prioritizing and getting organized).
We offer you budget consultations as well as two specific services related to managing wealth: prudent management of investment accounts and marketing services for business owners. (To learn about those now, click here.) If you have a skill that you could use to convert time in to money, then you could be a business owner soon (even if you are not currently selling any services or items).
By the way, we will not assist every small business with marketing. Some will choose not to spend what we charge. So, you may have to ask for help from people you already know or seek help from other people that you do not know yet.
Of course, there are some business which are so profitable or so easy to market that we will market them for a portion of the revenues (with no out-of-pocket cost to the business owner). However, even in that case, we value our time highly. We are selective. We want to convert time in to fast, reliable, large streams of revenue (cash flow).
As for your specific attitudes about money (and about how different currencies are created and how public demand for specific currencies rise and fall), we have some free content that you might find fascinating and… liberating. Certain statements about monye are typical for people who identify themselves as “victims” of economic realities and financial systems. You might be willing to examine a few of your favorite statements about wealth and test them for accuracy (and relevance). If so, access our free content on wealth attitudes by clicking here.
We value having liberation in regard to our own attitudes, to having an abundance of time, to having an abundance of money, and, finally, to having an abundance of health. For me, the biggest practical excuse behind not earning more money was a severe restriction to my health.
In particular, I suddenly lost the ability to walk. Physical immobility can be a major problem within many occupational fields.
However, eventually I recovered quickly. Over the course of many years, my attitude about health has changed radically.
For instance, it is weird to say “I presented myself as a victim of my health.” That is almost like saying “my leg is a victim of my leg.”
But I did extend my attitude of victimhood to the health care profession. I did relate to certain groups as victimizing me. They provided inaccurate information. They promoted unsafe practices (or expensive and ineffective practices). They even ridiculed the scientific method at the same time as invoking the supposed authority of the word “science.”
Just because a concept is memorized in a science class and then validated as “correct” on a written test does not in any way establish the scientific merit of the idea. Just because a publication uses the word science does not establish validity. Even if the publication is from a government, using the label “science” (or “pseudoscience”) does not make quackery valid or credible science invalid.
