How I turned an old second hand TV, a couch and a fridge into a multi million dollar business.
I'm not going to sugar coat it.
It was tough for me in the beginning.
Yes, those early days of building my Prosperity Of Life business were difficult. I remember being so overwhelmed one day I crawled into the closet in my one bedroom apartment, closed the door and balled my eyes out. 😭
Thirty minutes later....I resurfaced, washed my face and got back to building my business.
Let's do this! 💪
What else was I going to do?
"The major difficulty I had to manage was my emotional state. My self doubt. The negative monkey chatter that was all so consuming at the time."
The Rachel I am today is certainly not the one that got started with Prosperity Of Life all those years ago.
I was so vulnerable and lacking in confidence back then. Mainly due to my weakened financial state. I'd never been so broke. I was 32 years old, with a failed marriage on the record, not a single asset to my name and $50,000 in credit card debt.
It was such a big decision for me to pull the trigger and get started here with Prosperity Of Life. I felt like I couldn't afford to make yet another mistake.
I literally had to scape the money together by selling what little furniture I had left at my apartment. The TV, the couch and the fridge....all went. 💨
What are you prepared to give up or sacrifice in order to create the future that you say you want?
I was prepared to do ANYTHING....so long as it was legal and ethical....nothing was off the table.
When you realise that you were in a stronger position financially as a sixteen year old kid fresh out of school, working as a waitress, than you are as a so called business professional at thirty two....well.....let's just say it's a humbling and confidence robbing moment.
Little did I know just 7 short months after pulling the trigger and starting my business with Prosperity Of Life I would find myself making $100,000 per month and would go on to reach the status of self made millionaire inside of 18 months.
But this business has given me so much more than just the financial rewards. I never knew that an environment for such high level growth and development existed.
If I've learned one thing over the years it's the importance of getting clear on what you want. Don't think small. Think big.
Take the time to craft and design your future and then spend some time every single day going after it.
If you don't take the time to plan your life....then as Jim Rohn wisely said....you'll fall into someone else's plan.....and guess what they have planned for you? Not much! 😁
Are you interested to know the the number one strategy I implemented in order to build my Prosperity Of Life business to greater levels of success than I imagined?
The best bit is....it didn't cost me anything....it was a free strategy and one that made all the difference in the world.
If I can do it, I think anyone can.
THE ART OF COMPARTMENTALISING YOUR CURRENT SITUATION & HOLDING A FIRM VISION OF THE FUTURE YOU WANT TO CREATE
Master this skill and you can create ANYTHING you want in ANY circumstances.
I shared with you how much debt I was in when I found my Prosperity Of Life business. It was all consuming. Sleepless nights.....the whole bit.
If you've ever been in a situation of too much month at the end of the money, then you can relate. It's highly stressful.
I knew from the Personal Development principles I was learning that if I continued to focus on the debt, I would simply attract more debt.
SPEND YOUR TIME FOCUSSING ON WHAT YOU WANT, NOT ON WHAT YOU DON'T WANT.
Easy for you to say I thought.
I've got a draw full of bills I can't pay. Rent is past due and my phone, my life-line to building my Prosperity Of Life business is just about to be disconnected.
And you want me to just not think about my current circumstances and spend my time focussing on what I want?
Easier said than done.....but OKAY......let me give it a crack. 🤷♀️
I had to put some go to strategies in place to help me to take control of my thoughts.
The debt was there and my job was to NOT allow it to consume my thoughts. My job was to focus on the future success I was in the process of creating.
MY SEVEN STRATEGIES TO CONTROL YOUR THOUGHTS & REDIRECT YOUR MIND
# 1 - AFFIRMATIONS - I came up with an affirmation....."I'm a multiple 7 figure income earner, assisting people from all over the world to improve their lives and their financial situation".
I repeated this affirmation so many times throughout the day and night that it was the very first thing I would think of in the morning when I woke up.
Whenever the thoughts of my debt crept in I would replace those thoughts by repeating my affirmation.
# 2 - PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT EVERY DAY - I listen to Personal Development every single day. Without question. No TV, not even movies. I just fed my mind with positive and inspiring material. I embodied the conversation of success.
These days I do enjoy a movie from time to time, but I still have a daily practise of plugging into Personal Development.
# 3 - DAILY VISUALISATION - I visualise and consciously channeled my thoughts multiple times throughout the day.
My strategy for this was crafting my vision. I wrote a story of the future life I wanted to experience. It was very detailed.....I was healthy and happy, arm in arm with my sole mate (even though I was single at the time), I included the family vacay's, the car I was driving, the house I was living in, the friends, the shopping experiences, the business activity....everything was bundled into the ideal day in a life of Rachel.
Whenever the thoughts of debt and fear crept in I would push them out and focus my mind on the picture I had formed of my future.
It was difficult in the beginning as my mind wanted to wander and entertain the debt. But I just gently pushed it aside and redirected my mind power to visualising abundance. Visualising the house, the car, the experiences with friends and family that I wanted to see in my future.
# 4 - DAILY EXERCISE - I also exercise multiple times a day to raise my vibration. A brisk 10 minute walk here, a 30 minute walk there....a run on the beach....whenever I had a spare minute I was moving.....I wouldn't allow myself to sit around feeling sorry for myself. It was controlled and constant motion.
# 5 - PLENTY OF SLEEP - 7-8 hours of blissful sleep every night. The body and mind needs rest to perform at a hight level.
#6 - DAILY WRITING OF GOALS - I wrote down my goals every day. Multiple times throughout the day. As my thoughts would wonder to the debit. I would pull out my goal card and re-write my goals.
#7 - DAILY GRATITUDE - I would start my day with gratitude. Writing down 10 things that I'm grateful for in my present life and 10 things I'm grateful for that were yet to come.
All of these strategies empowered me to re-direct my focus. These strategies allowed me to get onto a new frequency....a new vibration. I was no longer consumed with thoughts of lack and debt, I was consumed with thoughts of success and abundance.
It made all the difference in the world and I noticed things shifting almost immediately.
Within six months I had paid off all of my debt. What a fantastic feeling.
I traded my means of transportation at the time....a $500 scooter....for a black Porsche. Exactly like the one I'd been visualising.
I traded the back of the plane for the front flat beds. #bliss
A couple of years later I fell in love with the most amazing man in the world and we're now married with the most beautiful little girl.
We live in our dream home and as a family enjoy first class vacations right around the world with family and friends.
I still implement these powerful mind power strategies every day and I've tapped into a level of joy and happiness that I honestly never thought to be possible.
It doesn't mean I don't have challenges. Of course they pop up from time to time. But I have the skills and the confidence to deal with them.
THE REWARDS ARE PLENTIFUL
What gives me the most joy in business these days is seeing other Prosperity Of Life distributors carving out their own success. There is no better feeling in the world than seeing someone else's life change for the better.

I'm so grateful that I had the courage to say yes to the opportunity that is Prosperity Of Life. As I type this post it's been a 15 year journey so far and I look forward to many more memories created in the future.
What are you most grateful for as it relates to your Prosperity Of Life journey?
