After posting about Steve Navra’s Optimising Investment Structures course earlier, I got home to find a brochure for Anthony Robbin’s Wealth Mastery.
I registered and attended Wealth Mastery in 1998 or 1999. I admire Tony Robbins very much, the man is extremely talented as a motivator, influencer and coach. There was also a good discount for me at the time. Coupled with a money back guarantee, I had nothing to lose by going.
Let me say, I loved it. But… during the first half of the seminar there wasn’t anything I didn’t already know. Sure, I wasn’t applying it all and found that fact very motivating. So I asked for a refund before the appropriate time. That gave me a lesson in self-confidence in asking for what I wanted.
“No, I don’t want to attend another event,” I said, “I’d like a refund. I am not getting what I want.”
“Yes, I do actually understand the content,” I said, “I have a B.Ec. and used to work for a money market trader. I’d like a refund. I am not getting what I want.”
When dealing with a skilled influencer, my only advice is to stick to your message and repeat it.
Many people who go, love Wealth Mastery. I loved it and didn’t finish it. But many people I talk to cannot immediately apply the principles. They spend time networking with other graduates until they reach a comfort level that lets them impliment some of the ideas. I know a few graduates who haven’t made an investment after a few years — they can’t find the right strategy.
This could easy become a post about unnecessary, expensive seminars. But I know graduates who made fortunes after attending. They basically found a strategy that worked for them and stuck to it.
That is the real lesson. Find a strategy that works and stick to it. Continue your education as you gain experience. Revise and refine the strategy as you reap the rewards.
The cost of the seminar is not indicative of it’s value. Spend what it takes to find your strategy.
But it does make Steve Navra’s course at $286 worth a look.
