The dreams of millions of baby-boomers have gone up in smoke right before their eyes. Maybe you’re one of them?
That’s why we plan to soon launch a new FREE service for you called ‘Retirement Repo’ dedicated to innovative ways of taking back that dream by force. You’ll still get this newsletter and this will be in addition if you want it.
So with that to look forward to, it’s worth considering the word ‘retirement’ and what it means to you. It’s one of the most favorite words in America but it means different things to different people.
The dictionary defines it as essentially giving up work, but I think that leaves a lot to be added because any fool can give up work; you have to be able to live comfortably without working in the true sense of working: doing a job you effectively hate for a paycheck.
Retirement is to be able to live comfortably, freely and without lifting a finger.
Sound about right?
But that’s still a pretty vague statement. I mean, how is that achieved?
So let’s go a little further. Here’s how you know you can retire:
The point at which a virtually guaranteed investment income meets your outgoings is the point you can retire.
I think you’ll agree with this.
So, if we’re going to accomplish retirement, we have a two-pronged attack: outgoings and effortless, guaranteed income.
Maybe your dreams of retirement are way closer after all? If we could find ways to slash your outgoings WITHOUT drastically affecting the quality of your life, the goalposts instantly move closer!
Maybe your retirement plans had been based on receiving 4% from dividends on bonds and blue-chip stocks? But what if you could find a way to get the same security but enjoy 8% dividends? Again, those goalposts just shifted closer.
So by revisiting your retirement plan in this way, you can snatch back that dream and enjoy it today, not tomorrow. That’s what our new publication will be about.
In our signature monthly course, The League of Power, we explain this planning in more detail and right from the first, free-trial lesson, we show you such a way of slashing your outgoings. You see, a lot of the bills you pay either needn’t be paid at all or can be reduced with a phone call!
But let’s rewind. Why did all this bad stuff happen in the first place? Because people bought into a fantasy!
Money flows to those who deal in realities, not fantasies. Those who think objectively, not subjectively.
The wealthiest people in the world became so for the simple reason they were prepared to think ‘out of the box’. Throw me the name of anyone who made themselves wealthy by their own means, and I’ll explain it’s because they thought differently to most people. In fact, they thought the OPPOSITE way to most people.
This is why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. It’s why the wealthy will always be the few; because most people simply don’t have the guts to think and do differently from the herd.
I cannot emphasize enough how this simple axiom can either work for you or against you!
It’s all about seeing through the web of illusions you’ve been spun since you were born. Once you see the truth, the path to wealth becomes clear.
Something too many people didn’t understand on the path to this crisis is that they truly believed in constants. But, one of the few certainties in life is that tomorrow will not be like today…
Imagine it’s 1945. If I told you then that Japan and Germany would soon become the world’s economic power houses behind USA, you’d have laughed at me.
Wall Street are no different, but of course, it suits them this way: the belief that things will always be the same…
Regardless of what the glossy brochures say, Wall Street exists for a single reason: to relieve you of your hard-earned cash. They make money when you ‘invest’ it with them; they pay you a paltry few percent while they take your money and try to make HUNDREDS OF PERCENT investing in other things… and often fail.
It was a long bull market that started in 1982. In order to get you to pay them as much of your money as possible over this period, they made you believe that stocks (and property) can only go one way: UP.
League of Power members can make money when things go down as well as up.
Any fool can make a modest profit in good times- the trick is doing it during a recession. Even better, making vast sums of money because of a recession. You would shudder at the truth behind the stock market- and how mercilessly the few truly wealthy milk it for every penny. People haven’t the foggiest idea who really controls markets and how to profit hugely from that knowledge.
The sheep hand over their hard-earned money to the sharks on Wall Street and go back to sleep. The sharks lose their money and the sheep get angry and swear never to go near markets again, declaring the whole thing a big scam. Everyone dumps stocks making them cheap and savvy buyers step in.
If this applies to YOU, you’ll be turned off by my talk of making money from markets. Can you see why I’m trying to beat your sheep-conditioning out of you??
People (and the ‘pros’!) invest like a shoal of fish; they flit from one thing to another as a herd, driving prices for whatever up and down constantly with amazing repetition.
Property is no different really. Until recently, everyone thought they were a real estate tycoon. But as we now know, they didn’t know what they were doing. Many have got their fingers burnt and plenty more will follow. Many a fortune has been made from property by the shrewd (with zero capital sometimes!), but many a fortune has been lost by the stupid.
Which group would you like to belong to?
Just like the sheep have lost interest in stocks, they are now losing interest in real estate and the savvy money will come back in.
All asset classes move in ‘invisible’ cycles. The sheep (and this includes most ‘pros’) jump on to a certain asset class at precisely the point at which the class is about to fall through the floor. My aim is to clean up on each part of the cycle and keep you informed every step of the way.
For financial survival and prosperity, choose reality.
Until next time,
