Markus Rothkranz and the Prosperity Secret
The secret of prosperity
I don't know about you but I get so tired of waiting for so many things. Usually I find myself in this situation because I am dependent on other people, dependent on them for money.
I so often find myself in the crazy and frustrating situation of having no way of doing things I want to do simply because I haven't got enough to pay for whatever it is. I can even find myself unable to pay my rent on time because I am waiting for money to come through and I hate being like this! It is stressful and worrying not having the basic financial resources you need.
The main reason for my problems is that I am always waiting for other people and so have no control over my own life to that extent. A video by Markus Rothkranz has just come my way that has really made me realise this. It is entitled The Prosperity Secret.
Who is Markus Rothkranz?
For those of you who don't know who Markus Rothkranz is he is an amazing man of many talents. He is an artist, an author, a film-maker, a producer, a public speaker and an expert on raw foods and a healthy lifestyle.
Markus is also a man who was once in a terrible state of ill-health and so despaired with life that he gave away all he had and went into the desert stark naked. He really didn't even know if he would come back alive. His experiences there transformed him to such an extent that afterwards he went from having nothing to getting enough in the way of finances to be driving a Ferrari within just 90 days. He also got the 2.5 million he needed to make his own motion picture To The Ends of Time in 1996. It starred Joss Ackland.
Since his personal experience of 40 days in the desert, Markus changed his lifestyle and gave up all his old and unhealthy way of living. He switched to raw foods and is looking younger now than he was over 20 years ago.
Markus is leading a campaign to heal the world, one person at a time, and he tells us how to do so. Markus recommends a return to eating the free wild foods that Mother Nature has provided and to stop eating dead foods. He is a role model for anyone who wants to look good, stay healthy and be full of energy.
Of course being really fit is a form of prosperity in itself but the video The Prosperity Secret is about making financial wealth to enable you to live how you want.
At the beginning of the video Markus says: "If you're unhappy with your life especially in the money department, you've just go to hear my story." I know I am unhappy with mine and that countless other people out there will be too.
Markus has many guest speakers on his video and they all share one thing in common. All of them are fabulously wealthy but started off with nothing. All of his guests offer advice and talk about their lives.
The Kinks - Tired of Waiting
Tired of Waiting
The Kinks had a hit with their song Tired of Waiting in which lead singer Ray Davies sings:"I'm so tired, tired of waiting, tired of waiting for you." This is something everyone has experienced, having to wait for other people.
In The Prosperity Secret, Markus Rothkranz gives this advice: "Stop waiting for other people to come through for you."
That rang bells for me because that is exactly what I find myself so often doing. Right now I am waiting for a payment from a magazine publisher whom I did some work for, waiting for another magazine to give me a yes or no on an article proposal I sent in, waiting for a book publisher to say whether they are interested in publishing me, and waiting for a friend to sort out some photos we need for a feature idea I have had accepted by a publication.
These are just some of the many things I am currently waiting for progress with. Each one involves money. Each one involves waiting for another person.
One of Markus's guest speakers is the multi-millionaire Marshall Sylver. He explains that he had been homeless twice and had lived with no electricity and no phone. Now he lives in a mansion and has his own jet and is listed in Wikipedia as a motivational speaker, author, and performance hypnotist. He points out: "The hand is not won by the person who is dealt the best cards. The hand is always won by the person who plays their hand the best."
This is just a sample of the wisdom and tips found in this inspiring video. It has inspired me to take action and to stop waiting for every one else!
