Progress: Double Your Way to a Million

Dave Mauder asked if I'm going to post my progress on the Double Your Way to a Million program and since I've been getting quite a bit of requests on the program, I think it would be good to do a follow up....

Well, it's been a couple months now since I started and now I am at step #9. It's interesting - now that I am doing this, I've noticed all the money on the ground that I used to never pay attention to! The majority of the money I've come across has been found in random places. I still haven't tried asking people for money, not even 5 cents, but I'm sure it would be a faster way to the next step. I'm just not the type of person to ask for help from other people - especially when it comes to money. Perhaps this could be practice for me.

I would be interested in knowing if anybody out there has attempted to double their way to a million - leave your comments here ;) For those of you interested in knowing more about the program, click here...

Maria, it's good to see you are at stage 9. I'm pushing stage 9 and my log is there for everyone to see on the Double Your Way To A Million Blog, dedicated to this project.

You made an interesting point. You wrote....

"I'm just not the type of person to ask for help from other people -especially when it comes to money."

This is usually why most people start of fast, then get stuck around stage 9.

At this stage other methods need to be used. Finding, or asking someone for a penny or two aren't now enough to make it to the next step.

It seems most people are ashamed of asking for money, for various reasons. But to progress, someone somewhere has to give you money.

We know there is no shortage of money in the world. And Prosperity isn't doled out in limited quantities from a limited source. But is attracted from an unlimited source.

And asking is not the same as begging. Begging is when you want something for nothing.

You wrote.."especially when it come to money."

Ask yourself what it is about money which made you say 'especially?'

This way of thinking is very common. Which is why in many 'bizops' you see things written like - 'No Selling, No face to face contact, No Meetings'... etc.

All desigened to allay people's fears of asking for money.

I'm going to be addressing this subject on my blog soon. Being able to put our finger on what it is exactly which is stopping us is the key to doing something about it.

I think my issue is that in the past I used to always ask people for money and now I just want to be able to do something by myself without outside help. I think it's different when you're asking friends and family for money versus a bank or other private lender for help. The former is what I have a problem with. Maybe it's my ego getting in the way - thinking that these people will think less of me because I'm asking them for help.

I realize now that it's not a healthy way to think because life is really about helping each other grow.

I don't see it as asking people for help.

At least not when you get to stages 8 or 9 and onwards.

After this it is about offering a fair exchange of value - by either finding or creating it.

Family and friends, while they may or may not want to be involved, are only a tiny amount of people.

We have the world out there.

"The Science Of Getting Rich" by W. Wattles has a primary principal which is to always give more in 'use value' than you receive in 'cash value' for your products or services.

This is something I'm working on.

Wow, up to stage 9. That's fantastic!

I'm on stage 4 at the moment. I had no problem with asking for money for the first few pence, however like yourself, I wouldn't want to ask once I get to a few quid.

I'm trying not to think of future stages (as per the rules) but I think the idea would be to sell a service or a product at a profit. Maybe something you've done for free for family or friends in the past you could make a small charge for, explaining it's a experiment you're trying.

Good luck. I hope you get to stage 28 :)

I didnt start off at 1 cent cos such domination has ceased circulation in Singapore. As such, I started from 5 cent. Asking people for help is not shameful to me. I have been in sales. However, I am curious as I am stuck from X2 80 cents to $1.60. What can I buy with 80 cents?! Can someone pls advise?

Maria Palma said...

Hi Clarence,

I'm on step 10 now and up until now I've found all my money on the ground or asked for it.

Perhaps you could sell something that you already have instead of buying something with the 80 cents...
