Start the conversation
It's 2 o'clock in the morning as I write, and the winds are howling outside, making it near impossible to sleep. Somehow that's strangely appropriate on election night, especially if you understand the implications of what I want to share with you right now.
But be warned. This isn't for everybody…
…just investors who want to make gobs of money.
Profits Trounce Politics Every Time
If you're one of millions of Americans who are worried sick that we're on the brink of political, economic, and financial chaos based on last night's outcome, you're not alone. I feel the angst, too.
This election was one of the most contentious in recorded history. Clinton and Trump pulled out all the stops in an incredible orgy of mudslinging, gossip-mongering, and just plain old nastiness that has given pause to almost every investor I've talked to.
Most people view this as a negative influence simply because it's tearing the country apart, but I think it'll prove to be one of the most significant opportunities of our lifetime.
Chaos always is.
Obviously, I don't want you to miss that – no, scratch that. I won't let you miss the huge profit potential being created as voting comes down to the wire.
Let me explain.
Prepare for Change, but Don't Fear It
Millions of investors are scared stiff when there's change in the air. Longing for the "good old days," they fear deviating from what they know because that means they'll have to change their ways.
Yet, that's actually not true.
The only change they'll have to make is in what they think they know.
That's where the big profits are hiding, and where 99 out of 100 investors go off the rails.
I joke with audiences around the world that, "We're all born with common sense. It's just 'bred' out of us as adults."
Chances are good that you already know this instinctively. I usually see a sea of heads nodding from stage when the irony of what I've just said dawns on them.
Again, you're not alone. What's more, there is a logical explanation.
Humans are much more prone to stop reaching for the stars as we get older because we've convinced ourselves that we "know better."
We can't help it – it's simply human nature. It's in our DNA.
Yet, what we want to be doing is flipping that around – at least when it comes to our money, anyway.
That's because history shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that the biggest opportunities are always created during periods of huge chaos. War, famine, political strife, financial crisis… it doesn't matter.
The key is learning to recognize that the angst that comes with each of these things is actually the signal you're looking for when it comes to lining up the huge profit potential you deserve, but which most investors will never have.
Fortunately, this isn't as difficult as you would think if you remember three "Total Wealth Principles" we talk about frequently:
- Capital is a creative force that's constantly flowing forward
- Money flows like water to where it's treated best
- Success constantly replaces failure, and there's expansion each time it does
Now it's time for the fun part, and why I couldn't wait to share this with you.
