The Only Thing Money Can’t Buy


“Your self-worth is 100% correlated with your net-worth and if your net-worth holds more value than your self-worth, then your net-worth will begin to deteriorate to the level of your self-worth.”

- Jared Yellin


On top of the world...only to implode!

Insane bank account...only to decline!

Unreal net worth...only to see it deteriorate!


There are unfortunately far too many stories of the extremely successful athletes, entrepreneurs, executives, etc. losing it all due to self-sabotage at the hands of a series of poor decisions.


WHY IMPLODE?

WHY DECLINE?

WHY DETERIORATE?


It’s painful to observe because from the outside looking in you can see this happening, but from the inside looking out you are blinded by your lack of self-worth.


And many people with the highest net-worth will live in incomprehensible pain because only their bank account is overflowing, not their self-love account.


Bad marriages...

Estranged kids...

Flaky friends...


But here’s what I find fascinating as well…


Most people associate the rapid decline with a successful person imploding...


Multi-million who loses it all including their marriage, family, health, money, life etc.


But what happens to be even more common, possibly even at levels of a pandemic just never discussed, is the completely non-existent acceleration for those who do not feel worthy of success.


People who have zero self-worth and as a result never…


Find love…

Find happiness…

Find success…

Find money…

Find anything…


What they see in the mirror is lack, failure, disgust, limitations, and they are absolutely unable to overcome these beliefs.



Whether It’s A Decline Or Zero Acceleration - Your Self-Worth Is Everything!


Picture it like this…



The top left and bottom left quadrant represent the lack of self worth, which means either a decline or a non-existent acceleration, both disastrous because both lead to a life riddled with pain and discomfort.


The top right is the optimal of all optimal, because this is where your self worth and net worth are aligned and your earning and impact potential is unstoppable.


Finally on the bottom right resides a happy person, but typically this quadrant is for people who have a sense of falling short because they have not been able to tip the scale in the economic area of their lives which prevents them from having the type of impact they ultimately desire.


The big takeaway from this chart is two things...


FIRST, your self-worth is everything...period!

SECOND, your net-worth matters...YES!


Your worth as a human will absolutely be derived from yourself…


Who you see in the mirror…

Who you think about all day…

Who you live your life with…

Who is inside of your body, mind, and spirit…


If there is even a morsel of disgust, pain, emptiness, lack, etc. then your quality of life will indeed suffer.


BUT what I don’t want you to overlook is the importance of your net-worth as well.


Money is NOT the root or source or foundation of evil.


When your SELF-WORTH is optimal then your NET-WORTH is impactful.


MANY MANY introspective people battle with making money and I want to help you realize the importance of BOTH…


SELF + NET = OPTIMAL


But your NET can’t BUY your SELF…

AND

Your SELF can’t accelerate your NET…


But these independent variables have just the right overlap which is now going to be where your breakthrough is derived from…



The Overlap of NET + SELF


Step one is always to work on you…


  1. What is holding you back?

  2. When did this begin?

  3. What does your life look like once you overcome this limitation?

  4. What are you unable to do that you will be able to do when your self-worth is optimal?

  5. What is a new story you can tell yourself that will help you continuously see the REAL you?


There are dozens of additional questions that you can answer to help you love thyself, but this is a perfect starting point.


Now for the overlap…


Step two is to work on what produces meaningful and impactful economic results…

  1. How much money do you need in order to have the type of impact and lifestyle you desire?

  2. What is the amount you must earn each year and for how long to begin having this type of impact and lifestyle?

  3. What could you do that would cut the time in half?

  4. What daily reminders will you deploy in order to remain aware of how worthy you are to achieve this net-worth?

  5. What is a new story you can tell yourself that will help you continuously see the REAL you?


You will notice that question five for NET and SELF are the same because from my experience the story we tell ourselves is the story we will actualize.


If your story is one of lack, pain, discomfort, disgust, and a whole host of additional negative assessments of yourself - that is what you will actualize.


If your story is one of abundance, excitement, impact, love and a whole host of additional positive assessments of yourself - that is what you will actualize.


BUT here’s the key of all keys…


You CAN be FREAKIN SELF + NET RICH!


And I encourage you to GO FOR IT!


My personal self-worth is unstoppable and my personal net-worth is also unstoppable which means the following…


I LOVE ME

+

I HAVE THE RESOURCES TO DO WHATEVER I DESIRE (impact, pleasure, adventure, etc.)!


But it started with SELF and it has accelerated with NET…


I invite you to go on this journey with YOU because the outcome is what I call…


HAVE IT ALL…


And this is what you deserve...PERIOD!


Live with Intention,
