Wiring Your Neural Network For Financial Success

As an “entrevestor,” it saddened me to walk into a restaurant today and not find a single customer in it.

By the time I finished my meal, not a single person has yet to step into the restaurant.

What was disheartening was that it served reasonably good food and at an affordable price.

While settling the bill, I couldn’t help but offer some feedback to the boss.

In a courteous way, I shared with her how to attract more customers, provide better services, and improve bottom lines.

Throughout the discussion, I was happy she was all smiles and appreciative of my kind gesture and contribution.

I’m sharing this story because there’s a moral to this story that can inspire many people, including investors and entrepreneurs on their wealth-creation journey.

In the process of helping many people, I help them discover that the biggest enemy to achieving financial success lies between their ears.

Most people have not conditioned their minds, programmed their brains, and wired their neural network for financial success.

While growing up, their parents did not teach them how to be rich and wealthy.

In schools, not many teachers are focused on being financially intelligent. Few are able to impart financially literacy knowledge and skills to their students.

Perhaps, that’s why financial literacy education is not a major part of academic curriculum.

In most workplaces, employers are not inclined to help their staff improve their financial literacy levels. They’re concern about increasing unnecessary expectations and losing their employees.

To make matters worst, there are very few programmes that can help ordinary persons improve their financial positions and achievements.

Just as importantly, not many people are willing to pay the price, make necessary sacrifices, and discipline themselves to learn, improve and achieve better financial results.

As a result, most people have not honed their reticular activating system (RAS) to enhance their financial success.

The RAS is a part of the brain’s attention centre. It’s responsible for regulating transitions between sleep and wakefulness, including levels of consciousness.

In addition, it’s also the gatekeeper of thoughts, emotions and external influences.

As a switching centre, the RAS processes a constant bombardment of a lot of information that are received through all five senses.

It sieves out crucial information to be transmitted to the conscious mind so as to
coordinate integrated responses to external stimuli.

As a result, the RAS plays an important part in activating the right focus, motivation, and action to achieve financial goals.

Having taught many people about vital functions of the RAS, I can count only a few people who are aware about the RAS and are sharpening their RAS to achieve financial freedom.

Besides teaching my students different strategies and techniques to develop the RAS in order to create, grow, spend and protect wealth wisely, I also encourage my students to carry out an ongoing series of fun work.

(I hate to use words like homework, exercises or practices).

I taught them that wherever they are, they should always explore ways to help improve the people and environment around them.

(Now you know why and how I shoot out so many letters so as to do my part in improving enterprises, communities, the economy and society).

Whenever my students come across a profit-making enterprise, project or activity and even if they are not involved in it, they should challenge themselves to come out with ways to strengthen the business, increase number of customers and sales, and improve profits.

By doing so, they learn to focus on wealth-creation.

They also learn to be more curious about money, and research and reflect more deeply into the art and science of improving financial positions and assets.

As they carry out these fun works, they develop their RAS to help them make the world a better home.

They also learn how to raise more financial resources to serve a higher calling and fulfill a worthier cause.

In conclusion, please look within and around you right now.

How can you do more and do better for yourself, others and the environment?

How can you earn more money to help you live a more meaningful, exciting and fulfilling life?

They are also meant to motivate those who are struggling in life and help them find handlers to overcome their conflicts and challenges. It is my ardent hope that we will form networks and alliances of like-minded people who will put to right many of the wrongs in our midst. Together, we will leverage on each other's resources and create a synergistic impact in making our world a better home. These articles are written as part of regular reflection about the vicissitudes of life. They are at best work in progress and at worst, grumblings, grouses, and gripings of a finite old man. I have deliberately decided NOT to delete many of the articles and pointers that I may not agree with or are outrightly wrong. This is to keep a record of how my personal ideas, beliefs, and values have evolved over time. In addition, I hope to encourage readers by letting them know that I also make mistakes and am struggling with many of the complexity and complication in life. As long as we hang on to hope and work on finding a solution, there will be light at the end of whatever tunnel we are in. I do not pretend to know everything or for that matter, anything of substance. In fact, the more I study, learn, and think about the vast wisdom and knowledge out there, the more I realised how little I know about life and the ways of life. Hence, I have always ended my article by asking readers to continue to teach me. For I, too, am a sojourner in the exploration of truth and the adventure of finding meaning, purpose, and significance for my existence. I am proud of and make no apology for being a Christian, albeit not the most exemplary one. I believe our Creator can lead and guide us to be the best that we can ever be. I bear full responsibility for the shortcoming and error in my life, including my words. The fault is entirely mine and not due to anyone else. Readers have and can exercise the power of choice. They can discard what will not work for them and adopt those that can propel them further and faster in the pursuit of better performance, outcomes, and fulfillment. If I have disappointed or hurt you in any way, form, or manner, I would like to apologise to you. Please do not hold them against me or whoever or whatever is related to me. There are much to pray about, learn, and do. And I'll work on them with a sense of urgency. I hold on to the belief that 'Anything worth doing is worth doing with passion and excellence'. I'll endeavour to live by it. Life is short. There's no dress rehearsal and neither can we turn back the clock to change the drama of life. Therefore, by the grace and power of our Creator, let's live a full life and live it to the fullest. May God bless you abundantly on the journey of life. Your online servant, Patrick Liew I hope this message will find a place in your heart. By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.
