A few years ago I went to an event where Tony Robbins was one of the keynote speakers. I had remembered my dad listening to him in our home gym when I was growing up and really enjoyed his messages.
In real life listening to Tony Robbins is a totally different experience. He is energetic and captivating and connects the dots between our psychology, physiology and our success/happiness.
One of the most impactful messages that has stuck with me is when we talked about the 6 Human Needs.
If you haven’t heard about these I would recommend you look it up and listen to his explanation and stories about each one of them.
The image below shows the 6 Human needs but it doesn’t do justice to how he goes through all of these.
My mission with clients has always been to help them get the financial certainty and variety needs out of the way so that they can focus on growth and contribution.
However, if you leave all of your assets in the speculative market (i.e. stocks/bonds/real estate/crypto etc.) you will gain all the variety you can handle with the ups and downs of the market, but you won’t ever get the certainty that my clients obtain from taking a piece of their assets and deploying them in strategies that bring certainty.
Michael Finke, Ph.D. (actually he is a double Ph.D.) is a professor at The American College of Financial Services. He is quoted to say…
“Certainty provides confidence. This is one of the reasons that retirees who’ve incorporated guaranteed income into their retirement planning report higher levels of satisfaction.”
Whether you are in your earning years or in your retirement years, blending certainty into your plan will help you enjoy more success and fulfillment. You will then find that you can get out of yourself and start to focus on how you can bless the lives of others.
We are experiencing a lot of volatility in the markets and are up against quite a lot right now. If we can help you create more certainty in your financial future please reach out and participate in our Continuous Cash Flow process.
