It's true. Tell me Shannon, what's the difference between you and Bill Gates?

RE: Shannon's BAMM 2.0 Journal
You point to Bill Gates as proof that luck is why someone becomes wealthy, but it really has nothing to do with it. In those cases where it appears to be luck (which are the minority, by the way) there are other things in play that are not luck. The vast majority of people who become wealthy do so because they have the right personality traits. Those traits are naturally occurring for some, and can be developed for others. But to attribute wealthy to luck is laughably inaccurate.

Bill gates had an opportunity presented to him, and he took full advantage of it. He used his knowledge, his natural skills and his contacts to achieve a goal. That's not luck. That's taking full advantage of an opportunity and using one's natural skills, contacts and knowledge to do so.

Bill Gates is wealthy because his personality is prone to wealth. He has the traits that make a self made millionaire, and in his case, billionaire. If it was luck, it would be random. He would have randomly succeeded or failed at each step of the way to millionaire and then billionaire. He did not; his failures were predictable, just as his successes were, if you know what you're looking at. And he is a billionaire because his successes were vastly in excess of his failures, and that is not a random chance happening; that is him making what happened, happen.

Luck does not exist. All things happen for a reason. Just because you cannot see why they happen does not make them random.

If you look at the most wealthiest people in history they all happened to have been born in the same era.

They're are a lot of people who have the same personality traits as Bill Gates who are not millionaires, there are a lot of people who are smarter than Bill Gates who aren't as successful. If you know Bill Gate's story you know he was exposed to computers at a very early age when access to them was scarce even for universities. From there it was his years of practice and passion, or obsession for computers that led to his success.

There's something in sociology called the Matthew effect, or "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer", it shows that people get to where they are because of accumulative advantage. It really has nothing to do with personality traits specifically, maybe entitlement.

You act like people are scheming to be wealthy, most of the time they just happen to be passionate about something that's profitable.

RE: Shannon's BAMM 2.0 Journal
Not scheming. My research - more than a decade of it - showed a definite series of personality traits and response prioritization that was repeatable in people who become very wealthy because they made themselves so. It doesn't matter how smart you are, or when you're born, it matters what traits you have developed and what you do with what you have.

If my goal was to raise ants, I might become a millionaire still, though it's very unlikely. But if my goal is to become a millionaire, and then I steadily work at developing myself in that direction and actively making choices and seeking opportunities that naturally increase my probability of doing so, the probability naturally and common-sensically goes much much higher.

There's always the chance that for some reason, regardless of a person's life and choices and efforts they will become or will not become a millionaire. But those people who constitute the vast majority of millionaires are self made millionaires. They were not born into it. They didn't have it land in their lap. They consciously chose it and then made it happen, intentionally, deliberately, and usually with a lot of focused effort toward that goal specifically over a period of between 1 and 4 decades. The Internet is making it easier and faster for sure, but the majority who I found did things like saving their money and putting it into some sort of financial vehicle that would make it grow, cutting coupons, eliminating waste, choosing their activities with productivity toward the goal in mind, and so forth.

Then there were those who used an advanced degree to get a good job, and made that good job (such as doctor, lawyer, etc.) pay for the business venture they wanted to start. The man who owns North American Natural Resources did this. He started out as a lawyer and then leveraged that to pay for the company he started to harvest the natural methane from the local dump, convert it to electricity and then sell the energy to the electric company. If memory serves, he made himself a millionaire within 7 years.

There are those guys and gals who come up with a great idea and then they pursue it until it gets to market, where it explodes. The guys behind the ingenious FlowHive did this.

But in every case, they made themselves wealthy because they picked a goal that ended in becoming a millionaire, and pursued it steadily and faithfully. They made a plan to become wealthy, and then worked their plan step by step. And in every case, they had to have a large majority at least of the 29 qualities that showed up again and again in the personalities of self made millionaires, including self confidence, courage to take risks, knowledge of their specialty, drive to succeed regardless of what anyone else said or did, refusal to quit when they met with failure or setbacks, believing in themselves and their dreams, goals and efforts regardless of everything else, wise use of time, resources and money to achieve their goal, strategic planning, perseverance, patience, focus on the goal, ability to break large goals into smaller ones and then accomplish them step by step, and so forth.

Most people who are millionaires are self made millionaires, and most of them are people you've never heard of. Their wealth has nothing to do with luck or being born into it, or winning the lottery. It has to do with having or developing the right personality traits, beliefs and attitudes, and then using those and their dreams, plans and resources in deliberate ways to achieve their deliberate goal of becoming financially wealthy.

I know a guy who is a perfect candidate for multi-millionaire, and he could have achieved that over a decade ago if he had taken my advice. He has every single thing it takes, except the most important one: he does not believe he can do it, and so he never took action to try. He's a natural born salesman, and could sell ice to an Eskimo ice salesman, I kid you not. So good he used to turn wrong number phone calls into same day sex with lingere models and things like that. But he never really believed in himself, and so instead of taking my advice he decided to do the "safe" thing and became a police detective. Now he has a steady job, steady paycheck, and no real future concerning any sort of wealth. At any time he could change his mind and start achieving that, but his mind is locked. So locked, in fact, that he's watched me build this business for 12 years and still refuses to accept that subliminals work.

If Bill Gates decided to work at Radio Shack instead of do what he did, would he be a billionaire? Or become a car salesman, or any of a thousand other things? Probably not. He became one because he had the right personality and he chose to do so. It wasn't luck. He recognized that he was sitting on a surfboard right before a tidal wave hit, and he started paddling in the right direction and then stood up at the right time. He surfed the wave, instead of letting it go by.

A lot of millionaires and billionaires do this very same thing. So where does luck come into it? Was it luck for Carnegie? Was it luck for Tesla? Or Edison? Or Rockefeller? No, it was the right personality with the right attitude and beliefs focused on the right goal and using what resources they had in the right ways.

Well put Shannon. That is what BAMM does. It develops those traits Shannon talked about in addition to other things to turn you into the kind of person that becomes a multi millionaire and billionaire. BAMM through storms or sunshine is making me this person albeit gradually in a much shorter time frame. Not a get rich quick program.

Well I’m glad we can have a conversation without someone exploding. When I hear personality I think the way someone interacts with the people around them, and the way they choose to. I think when it comes to anything successful it just has to do with passion, passion for something that will make impact and is therefore profitable, and then the “personality”, if you want to call it that comes afterward. We are largely defined by the things we focus on, I believe that, but I don’t believe in focussing on personality traits, especially when worrying what others think usually hinders the potential for success, don’t you think?

Yes I make mistakes that I don't ever make excuses for; like leaving girls that love me and constantly seducing hoes.

There's no need to explode. Smile I know that there will always be people who disagree with me, and sometimes you just have to agree to disagree.

Here I am defining personality traits in different terms than you are, apparently.

Passion and drive are indeed an integral part of becoming wealthy without "luck" or being born into it. But is not passion and drive a personality trait? Some people have it, some people don't, and it can be developed.

Let's do this. Instead of personality traits, let's just state what they are. Consider:

Quote:self confidence, courage to take risks, knowledge of their specialty, drive to succeed regardless of what anyone else said or did, refusal to quit when they met with failure or setbacks, believing in themselves and their dreams, goals and efforts regardless of everything else, wise use of time, resources and money to achieve their goal, strategic planning, perseverance, patience, focus on the goal, ability to break large goals into smaller ones and then accomplish them step by step

All of these - whatever you want to call them - and more are necessary for a person to have, use and benefit from in concert in order to successfully make themselves wealthy at the millionaire level or above.

Quote:but I don’t believe in focussing on personality traits, especially when worrying what others think usually hinders the potential for success, don’t you think?

One of the traits, qualities, whatever you want to call it that makes a self made millionaire is that they do not worry what others think of them, their goals, their dreams and their actions and choices. They have their goal, they map out a path to it, and then they take that path step by step. Unless what others think is going to directly damage their ability to achieve that goal, they don't let themselves be affected by it; and if it will, then they will either remove themselves from those who would potentially derail them that way, or adjust their path to accommodate.

For instance, I have to care what my customers and potential customers think of what I do, and how I do it. If my customers and potential customers do not like and trust me, they are not likely to buy from me, and I will be much less likely to succeed. So I work that fact into the plan and make it part of how I make myself wealthy: any good business owner knows that your customer must like and trust you and/or your brand/products/whatever for the business to succeed, if the business is structured to sell products or services to customers. So the common sense way forward is to build your business model to make your customers and potential customers happy, and keep them that way.

But when I encounter someone who hears what I do and laughs at me because they don't believe subliminals work, or becomes derisive or attacks me for thinking I can become a self made millionaire, I just chalk it up to a difference of opinion and move on. I don't allow the negativity of others to affect me in my journey to succeed in making myself wealthy because that is the path to failure, not success, and I'm not working on this for the last decade and a half to fail.

Every self made millionaire I ever met has the same point of view and opinion and they are successful in large part because of that fact. Nobody can tear me down without my permission, and if I give them my permission, I fail to achieve my goal. So why would I give them my permission to tear me down? I choose to succeed, and the naysayers can enjoy themselves doing their thing, but I'm going to keep working toward my goal steadily and surely, and eventually I will achieve it. And I no longer care what the naysayers think once I achieve my goal, because I'm not doing it to impress someone, or prove something or be right... I'm doing it because I want that end goal for my own security and for the expanded good I can then do in the world, and thereby make my life worth having lived.

So people like Bill Gates (who I admire as a businessman, but disagree with on certain aspects of how to become wealthy) are not going to be worried what other people think of them. In fact that very trait, quality, whatever we're calling it is one of the biggest reasons Bill Gates succeeded, and one of the biggest reasons I admire him: regardless of what anyone else thinks, says or does, he is his own biggest fan and supporter, and he always bets on himself. He was one of the people who taught that to me, even though I have never met the man.

I just think denial is the root of all failure and stupidity. You might as well know what you're up against.

I just think denial is the root of all failure and stupidity. You might as well know what you're up against.

So if I understand you correctly, you believe that I am in denial and wasting my time with my efforts, and you're attempting to show me that.

But I have to say that a belief in or expectation of failure is the surest way to fail. Is it possible that I might fail to become a millionaire in spite of my efforts? Sure. Is it a certainty? Not unless I adopt your beliefs!

I can bet and win, 100% of the time, that you will never become a millionaire with such faulty, negative, failure based beliefs. You have defeated yourself before you ever began. I can bet on myself becoming a millionaire and have a much better chance of winning now than I would if I ever did choose to limit myself the way you have.

On top of that, I would have to say that the book you suggest is at best questionable in it's logic and conclusions, and at worst preposterously in error logically.

I am not a millionaire yet, and I have not yet needed to answer that question for myself. I will have to ask some of my more financially savvy friends.

I know that when I become wealthy I will be setting up a situation in which my wealth is transferred from generation to generation within my family, and that would be a good answer for you to this question probably. But so far what I know is that the old money families typically use a variety of investments and they use the power of compound interest over a long period of time. For instance, when a child is born, they may receive a $10,000 account from the grandmother which is left to mature over 20 years or 30 years before it is accessible to the child, and it grows by compound interest over that time.

I'll find out more.

RE: Shannon's BAMM 2.0 Journal
With your breakthroughs in 6g technology, what are the possibilities of using it with BAMM? Will the football program be in 6g as opposed to 5.5g. In the distant future, could a fully 12 stage 6g BAMM be possible. I don't intend to be pushy and mark demands . I'm just curious about the possibilities of 6g

At this point, a football would be less useful than a complete rebuild, and I hate to say that because of the amount of work it would entail, but it's true. That is given the advances in build technique I have developed since this program was begun, and they are in no small part attributable to using BAMM IMO. That said, I don't see myself having time to really worry about it much for a long time.

RE: Shannon's BAMM 2.0 Journal
Okay. Will the listening time limit still be 1-4 hours for multistage, single stage, or BAMM. BAMM in 5g still knocks me out occasionally. I can't imagine the energy BAMM 6g would consume from the user and the creator as well. Me thinks man is not meant to make BAMM 6g. Tis only for the gods. Hahaha

I just think denial is the root of all failure and stupidity. You might as well know what you're up against.

So if I understand you correctly, you believe that I am in denial and wasting my time with my efforts, and you're attempting to show me that.

But I have to say that a belief in or expectation of failure is the surest way to fail. Is it possible that I might fail to become a millionaire in spite of my efforts? Sure. Is it a certainty? Not unless I adopt your beliefs!

I can bet and win, 100% of the time, that you will never become a millionaire with such faulty, negative, failure based beliefs. You have defeated yourself before you ever began. I can bet on myself becoming a millionaire and have a much better chance of winning now than I would if I ever did choose to limit myself the way you have.

On top of that, I would have to say that the book you suggest is at best questionable in it's logic and conclusions, and at worst preposterously in error logically.

So we will agree to disagree.

Shannon, you're very defensive for someone who has all the answers. All I'm saying is maybe you're focusing on the wrong things, how can there ever be progress if ego is always in the way?

Sometimes there are different perspectives that you have to take into account, there are a million different ways of thinking, ways of doing things etc. You're honestly being very conservative right now. All I said was, you should read this book... How is learning about a different perspective failure based thinking or laughably inaccurate? Lol, you're not the only person who's done research.

Take this into account: If there is a starving child in africa, what are their chances of becoming a millionaire compared to a child growing up in silicon valley and is surrounded by successful entrepreneurs? You're saying that all the african child needs is the "right personality traits" and voila and they will eventually become millionaires.

That's like swimming against a tide, and saying eventually I'll get to the other side.

You have a program called luck magnifier no? Sometimes the stepping stones are more important than just swimming against a tide lol. I used luck magnifier and manifested things in less then 2 days, while some people are waiting months to manifest the same things, due to personality traits training. Man all thats doing is keeping you grounded in one way of thinking and one perspective, successful personality traits come from life experience not the other way around.

You're spending alot of energy and time developing these programs which means you honestly believe what you're doing, but sometimes you're closed-mindedness scares me, especially when you're leading so many people in such a profound way. Put your ego aside and just have a real conversation. Open and scientific, right? Sometimes that requires taking other perspectives into account and thinking outside the box. You'd be much more successful if you stopped trying to be a leader and be more of a scientist.

Yes I make mistakes that I don't ever make excuses for; like leaving girls that love me and constantly seducing hoes.

I flow like the 5 series, in various areas, and blow holes in weak *****s theory.

RE: Shannon's BAMM 2.0 Journal
Well, I read the book, and I find a lot of faulty logic in it.

I'm not sure I follow you on the closed mindedness, or what you mean by being a scientist instead of a leader. Whether or not you or I like it or want it, I am both, and I must continue to be both. Believe me, I would love to disappear for a while and pop back up with the finished product, having spent all my time just doing R&D. But I have a forum full of people who need my input, because without it there are misunderstandings that grow over time.

As to my own BAMM journey, I spent the two weeks I was sick using MIR instead of BAMM, and I could definitely see a difference by the end. I justify doing that by the realization that MIR kept me from having to go to the hospital and spend probably several hundred or perhaps thousands more on medical bills. So in a strange sort of way, it was helping me achieve my goal.

What told me that I was needing to go back was a combination of lowered motivation and the realization that my ego was no longer being expressed or dealt with reasonably. I have been back on BAMM since I guess the 3rd or 4th of January, 2016, and both of these are benefitting greatly. It is also helping to guide me in other ways.

BAMM is also helping me stay the course when I feel like what I'm trying to do is hopeless. For instance, the whole thing with AP code, BAMM helped me conclude that that is of secondary importance to actually making new stuff, and so I put that down for the time being to focus on making new stuff. The AP situation was becoming a useless blockage.

There is also the feeling that I will never get to my goal with the 6G prototype. It's amazingly powerful now, and yet somehow it doesn't seem like that's enough. I see the light at the end of the tunnel, and yet somehow it still seems hopeless because every time I think I have the one that's going to finally break through that glass ceiling, I don't. It's baby steps every time in terms of outwardly obvious.

The power of this thing is incredible, but it's not outwardly obvious yet. The end goal is that it needs to be not just effective, but that it needs to achieve a specific goal in a very obvious way and in a really short amount of time. Right now it's working, but it isn't working to spec. Each iteration gets me closer, but it's always baby steps, and quite frankly I feel like I am getting tired of working on this when it's been over a year and a half now and I am still only making baby steps. No matter how close I get, it always seems just out of reach. BAMM is helping me remain focused, regardless of these feelings. I know I'll get there, but I need to put it down for a while and come back to it. Problem is, I can't do that because it's too complex, and I would not be able to remember everything I need to know to keep working on it if I did.

But, all this is from the perspective of baby steps. If I was to demonstrate this thing to someone who has never seen anything but 5G, one of two things would happen. Either they would be unable to see it doing anything (basically because that glass ceiling hasn't yet been broken), or they would be shock-and-awed, if they could see and comprehend what it is actually doing. The goal for the final is 20 minutes. Right now I have it operating at about 1.5 hours for the tests I am able to do, and I am not sure that is where it really is operating, because various things may be pushing the time back artificially and I simply don't have the funding to clear those away during testing just yet. Perhaps that is for the best, as it will only push me further in achieving the goal.

Whatever the case is, as exhausted as I feel right now, I know the end result is coming, and I know it will arrive. I am pretty sure I know when, at this point, too, but it is still something of a waiting game at the moment.

Perseverance is one of the key attributes of all self made millionaires.

But regardless of everything, I can feel change coming nd I know things will begin shifting shortly. Until then, there is more work to be done.

I wonder if it will be one particular title that makes me achieve this goal.
