Because money didn't come with instructions - until now!
Isn't it fascinating how the one thing we ALL use - and need, does not come with any instructions? There are very few courses about money. Not in schools. Not in universities. Not online... Yet we all use it every day in some way or another.
Hi my name is Christo van Zyl. I made my first million before I turned 30 - and then lost it all. I discovered my father and grandfather were millionaires also! Yet, they left no book, no course and no instructions on how to make money, keep money, grow money - or how money works...
I have spent more than 13 years learning every single thing about money I could find my hands on. I read books, I listened to audio, I interrogated my life, my fathers and grandfathers' lives. I even worked for several millionaires to find out what they know about money.
What I discovered was profound - and simple! I have documented these in my own 224 page manual, and tried and tested every single principle for more than 10 years now. I had to prove for myself that they work - and they did.
10 years ago I had massive debt, no income, no place to stay and no job!!! Today I own 2 properties, have 2 vehicles paid off, have investments, savings, amazing technology (which I love) and have paid for travels to more than 18 countries!
I want you to experience the same!

This is a quick jump to the Island of Koh Lipe in Thailand. I wanted to share a little bit of my story with you and give you an idea of what you can expect in this course.
Before getting started, we should cover some rules and guidelines:

- It is OK to make (financial) mistakes. Just don't repeat them (too much). Learn quickly, grow quicker.

Wealth is not money. It is also not just money. Wealth is a lot more than just money. In this lesson you will discover the true definition of wealth, and why this is important.
Everything in the Secrets to Wealth is covered in the Wealth Matrix. Each of the elements contribute towards your money and your wealth. If you want to become wealthy, this will be one of the tools you can use on a daily basis to improve your situation, which will affect you money, which will help you to create wealth!
Most people tend to focus on the money, but the real power lies in the choices you make, and specifically, the choices you make with the money which you already have. This video will give you a detailed explanation why choices are a fundamental component of wealth which you can apply immediately.
Your CHOICES affect your money. Each choices that you make can either cost you money or make you money. Even when you make a choice, there are more choices to make. This will give you a practical example. It is important to know that your money is affected by the choices that you make.
In order to become wealthy, you would often need to change some of your beliefs. There are two easy ways which are described in this lesson. The first one is to question the beliefs, and the second is to give you mind new/more relevant/current/future facts to store as the truth.
This is just a bit of a break from the learning here. It will give you some insight into my life, what my values are and also, I add it as proof that what I am teaching you is the result of what I have tested. I hope that you will enjoy it and that perhaps, it will open up the value of travel for you to put on your list. Enjoy and best regards, Christo
Values are things that are important to you. It is important to know that because your thoughts, time and money goes into them. They are the things you have already spent time and money on, and will continue to do - UNLESS you change what is important to you.
** VERY IMPORTANT: Do not continue to the next lesson unless you have WRITTEN DOWN ALL the things that are important to you. The next lesson and your ability to create wealth is dependent on this exercise, and it is the most powerful if done the first time.
** Important: This lesson requires you to have your values written down. It is very important that you have done that BEFORE you start this video, because it will give you the insights about your money, which you can then change.
When you know your values you understand where your money has gone. If you chose to become wealthy, you will have to CHANGE your values - the things that have been important to you. Only once you do this consciously will your mind assist you with your journey to become wealthy. This lesson will show you why, and how.
Your choices and actions are instructions from your mind, but, your mind will only get you to choose things or do things if they are either 1) Important (Values) or 2) Possible (Beliefs). In addition, some of your thoughts will impact your behavior also, so there are two rules: What you think about, comes about, and, thoughts become things. This lessons will show you why, and how.
Fundamentally, your mind makes decisions (choices) based on 2 key drivers - to gain pleasure or to avoid pain. If you know this, it can help you to understand why your mind has selected a certain option in the past. You can also use this to make different choices for your future. This lesson will give you an example and show you why.
There is a big difference in the way poor people think vs. how wealthy people think.
- Thoughts are scattered
- Thoughts are random
- Are dis-empowering and/or negative.
- Think about things not being possible
- Think about things which are not important
- Thoughts are specific
- Thoughts are focused on solving a problem
- Are empowering and positive
- Think about things as-if they are possible
- Think mainly about things that are important to them.
You need to train your brain to think the way that wealthy people think. This lesson gives you some pointers on how to do that.
One of the major reasons why people fail to create wealth is because they believe that it somehow is the duty of others to make them wealthy. Nothing can be further from the truth or less empowering. The secret naturally is that you are solely responsible for everything in your life. The sooner you accept that inevitable truth the sooner you will make progress. This lesson will show you why.
Now that you know you are responsible, it also becomes your duty to become more valuable. The higher your value, the higher people are willing to pay you, and it therefore affects your money. You can become more valuable by reading more, doing more, learning more and a variety of other things. This lesson will show you why this is so very very very important!
