TREAT LYON WROTE THIS BOOK
The Author says:
I wrote The Real Money Secrets Book as a partial spoof, partial information
source. I struggled with money for years and years - either mismanaging
it, or simply never having enough. So I did a very intensive
search for how to get it, how to manage it, how to think about
it, how to sell, how to serve. I became aware of the staggering
preponderance of books, articles, tapes and cds about getting
or making more money.
One day not too long ago, the sheer volume
of publications, and the very serious attitude almost all of
them took suddenly struck me as very funny, very sad. I had to
admit that I had gotten snagged by a very powerful hook: the
Make More Money and you Will Be Happier lie.
Realizing this was a bit
of a shock. I didn't like it. But then it all just seemed sillier
I started to think of all
the myths around money. Images and puns came flying into my head.
It was inevitable - I had to share my odd humor, give the whole
thing a little goose. I'm saying, "Hey! Let's take it easy,
I wrote the book for fun.
Simply fun. I'm so corny I go look at the book and start to laugh
all over again. I'm so delighted with how silly the drawings
are, and some of the concepts - running around a table? You're
kidding, right? Right! I love to laugh!
I think paying $5,000 for a seminar to find out how
to make money is just as silly. Hello! You already have
the money! Take that 5,000 and go invest it or go to a
joint venture training seminar (if you're into internet
marketing, here is the end-all, be-all membership
to get. There's more powerful, useful, doable information on
this site than you can access in a month)!
What is it we
We want to feel good. We
want to feel loved, appreciated, acknowledged. Be ourselves;
In the richest country
in the world, so many of us have gottten sucked into the money
chase. Money won't ever make us feel good. We think money provides
power, safety, security and comfort, the ability to express ourselves
and to live as we want. The irony is, we have to develop our
unique selves first in order to be able to receive the energy
In truth, it
isn't at all about money.
Money is ultimately a
result, a by-product of a way of being. The money search
is not about money, it's not about products, power, or even freedom.
It's about who we are and how we think, feel and act.
The Real Money Secrets
you through a light glimpse of some of the many things I've been
told about how to get money, and includes some of the marvelous
things that have worked for me.
As an add-on, in the back of the book I have
a few pages of some fantastic resources for people who have a
grasp of what it is they're really seeking.
Our desire for money must
be rerouted to a desire for the ability to become more aware
of who we are and what we're personally doing on the planet.
I believe that we must be willing to take risks, make unique
choices, take total responsibility for our own lives before money
will come to us and stay.
The Real Money Secrets
Book was also
a challenge to myself: I decided that I wanted to experience
the efficacy of the much-touted concept of do-what-you-love-love-what-you-do-and-the-money-will-follow
theory in Real Life.
In my weekly session with Lynn Ward, my wonderful supportive
coach, I mentioned that I wanted to be free to do who I am:
do what I do best and do from a place of light and love and fun
The universe listened and plopped that chance right
into my lap: I was laid off from my very part-time job!
I was faced with two choices - go back into my old habitual Omigod-what-am-I-going-to-do
mindset, or change my internal dialogue, saying to myself, Omigod-I'm-DOING-it,
go for it! It was a no-brainer.
I could now amp up the
time I could spend
on making the finshing touches on the book that I had been slowly
writing and compliling over the last few weeks.
creating the pdf,
and setting up the website for The Real Money Secrets Book was a much bigger task than I had
originally thougt it was, but the whole process has been a really
valuable experience, especially since:
The money did, indeed,
start - and continues - to flow! The
day I finished the book, I got a check for $475 out of the blue
from a sale I had no idea was in the works.
It really does work!
