L. Michael Hall, Ph.D.
Wealth Creation was one of the first modeling projects that I got involved with after I learned NLP and as I was developing Neuro-Semantics. I got interested in the strategy of how first-generation rich people become financially independent so that they can stop working for money, and let money work for them, thereby freeing them up so that they can pursue their passions and dreams. I wanted to be one of those people.
At first I thought I might find some really incredible and magical secrets that no one had told me about or that the rich were keeping to themselves. But after interviewing some self-made millionaires and then exploring the vast research literature of this subject, I came to what I still think is an astonishing realization— the actual processes for creating wealth is not Rocket Science, it is not even unusual, or uncommon. Actually, we all have the ability to create wealth. And, everybody I have met to this date knows all kinds of things that they could do that would improve their financial well-being. Everybody knows things to do. But not everybody acts on what they know.
This means that ultimately it is not what you know that will turn you into a wealth creator, but what you do about what you know. If you learn everything about wealth creation, and you don’t close the knowing-doing gap, all your knowledge will not make a difference. This, of course, is where Neuro-Semantics does its magic. Neuro-Semantics is the human science that enables you to get yourself to do what you already know, hence the Mind-to-Muscle pattern.
I also discovered that there are some really strange semantics involved around wealth, money, and finances. This refers to the meanings that you give to wealth, being wealthy, becoming wealthy, and living from a state of wealth. For some people, these words evoke feelings of guilt, confusion, inadequacy, undeserving and so they can’t get there because they are wired (within their matrix of frames) against such. Others have the opposite response. In them, wealth is equated strictly with money and so over-loaded with importance, that their sense of wealth is impoverished because it is not holistic.
The most astonishing discovery I made, however, is that wealth is an inside-out job. You have to get rich inside yourself before you can actualize it in terms of money, stuff, and resources. That is, you don’t get financially rich in order to be personally, psychologically, and relationally rich. That has it all backwards. First you get rich in all of the ways that really count— mentally and emotionally within yourself as a person. Then when you are rich inside, you have become a wealth creator (first for yourself) and then you’ll be able to know how to create wealth for others and that’s the pathway to financial independence.
The Training Workshop on Wealth Creation
In 2006, I renamed the Wealth Creation training, Inside-Out Wealth to reflect the discoveries I had been making in the ongoing modeling project. Over the years the training went under several titles, Games Wealth People Play and Mastering your Wealth Matrix. Today there are several Neuro-Semantic Trainers who present this training.
So, if you are tired of working for money and want to begin a process so that money works for you, so that you can then live for your dreams having the financial independence so that you choose how and where to devote your life’s energy, then consider attending the Neuro-Semantic Wealth Creation training. In that training you will discover and learn —
