Hi Guys, my name is Brad Cusworth, welcome to my blog!

I have developed this blog to offer a wide range of Free Resources to assist you in creating the life that you desire.  I am fortunate enough to be able to work from the comfort of my own home and all I need is a laptop and an internet connection.  I am so grateful for the life that I have created and it has been an amazing journey full of extreme highs and lows.  By sharing my story, I hope that I can inspire you to break free from your current fears and limitations and create the life that you desire.  Hopefully you can also learn from my mistakes and save yourself a lot of time and money in the process!

My investing journey started about 5 years ago when I read a book from Jamie McIntyre called ‘what I didn’t learn at school but wish I had’. This book opened my eyes up to a whole new world of possibilities.  I always questioned the system when I was growing up and I knew there had to be a better way.  Jamie’s book inspired me to start thinking outside the square and I invested in his homestudy program to further my education as a budding entrepreneur.

Up until this point I had followed the traditional path of school -> university -> jobI studied at University for 3 years and completed a Bachelor of Human Movement Science.  I started working in a gym as a casual Fitness Instructor and then moved on to become a Personal Trainer and Assistant Manager of a large Recreation Centre in Melbourne.  I loved working in the fitness industry and training people but the only way to move up the ladder to a higher paying salary was to move into management.  I ended up working in a small office chained to my desk and dealing with staffing issues.  I lost my passion for the industry and was determined to get out.

I completed the entire home study program in November 2005 and WOW, what an amazing journey it has been since then!  A rollercoaster ride of extreme emotions.  Fear, greed, confidence, despair, arrogance, depression, anger, frustration, exhilaration ….. the list could go on and on.  It has not been an easy journey by any means but it has been the most amazing 4 years of my entire life and I would not take back a single second.

Jamie’s course led on to doing Nik Halik’s stock market trading courses and after completing them in early 2006 I was convinced that I was going to be a multi millionaire within 12 months!  I had planned out everything from the car I was going to buy, to the mansion by the ocean and also a first class trip around the world!

I started trading options and organised my work around trading.  Every day I would start at 6:30am, work until 2:30pm, come home, trade for 1 ½ hours and then go back to work from 4:00 – 6:30.  I decided that I was going to retire within 6 months and all of my dreams were going to become reality!

I was so confident at one stage that I actually went to a bank and enquired about a $50,000 unsecured Personal Loan so I could quit work immediately and trade full time!  Thank god that I didn’t because over the next 12 months I lost over $50,000 on the markets due to a number of factors.  Stupidity, Greed, Fear and Ignorance were among them!

In early 2007 I was absolutely devastated.  I had lost my entire trading bank and felt like I was back at square one after thousands of hours of studying charts, reading books and getting educated.

One day I woke up to myself and I had one of those light bulb moments.  I remembered one of the first things that Jamie taught me ‘More than 80% of investing is mindset’. I was spending zero time on my mindset and 100% of the time on strategies.  This was another massive turning point in my life.

I also remembered that Jamie said to donate at least 10% of profits to charity I always said to myself that I would donate money to charity after I had made it.  Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way!  We must first give in order to receive.  Immediately I went out and sponsored 3 children from World Vision even though I was broke and struggling to pay the bills.  I thought I would just have to find the money somewhere.  I started volunteering my time at 3 day seminars, answered questions on forums and focused more on others instead of focusing purely on myself.

I started reading books such as ‘Think and Grow Rich’, ‘The Richest Man in Babylon’, ‘One Minute Millionaire’, ‘Secrets of the Millionaire Mind’, etc.  I started attending seminars about Personal Development, Mindset and NLP.  I studied the laws of the universe starting with the Law of Attraction (from the Secret), What the Bleep, etc.  I started writing out my goals, reading affirmations, making up a vision board.  Every morning and every night I visualised the future that I wanted to experience in the finest of detail.

Gradually things started to change in my life.  I started to see things in a different light.  I started meeting new people and I started to see new opportunities.  My entire life started to change and I knew I was getting closer and closer to my goals even though my bank account didn’t show it (yet!).

In November 2007 I volunteered at a property seminar in Melbourne and I met an amazing guy who introduced me to a new online business.  3 weeks later I found myself in Cancun, Mexico at a Millionaires Wealth Conference which was associated with my new business.  I met some truly amazing people.  Many of them were earning six figure incomes per month online!

I arrived back in Melbourne in late December more fired up than ever before.  From early January I decided to really focus on this new business and by January 31st I decided to take a giant leap of faith and handed in my resignation at work.  I gave them 4 weeks notice and my official last day in the rat race was the 29th February 2008.  I will never forget the day that I handed in that letter.  I was terrified as I knew that my financial security and future was now in my own hands.  I no longer had a pay check to look forward to every 2 weeks!

My destiny was now entirely up to me and it was such an empowering feeling.  I walked out of my Managers office feeling on top of the world! After making that decision to hand in my resignation I then went on to earn my previous yearly salary in a single month during February.  I knew that I had to take massive action as I only had 4 weeks of security left.  You can imagine how I was feeling at the end of February when I walked out of my office, closed the door and knew that I would never have to work for anyone else again for the rest of my life. What an amazing feeling, I will never forget it!

The next 12 months lead me on another rollercaoster ride of emotions!  I was so happy to be out of the ‘rat race’ that I stopped working on my business, took an extreme adventure holiday to New Zealand and started spending far too much money!  I was living the high life and I started sabotaging my results.  My Internet Business ended up falling over and my cashflow was dramatically reduced.  Yet another lesson in this amazing journey we call life!!!

I had spent the past 5 years studying Personal Development and Spirituality from some of the great teachers including Bob Proctor, Tony Robbins, John Demartini, Chris Howard and Esther Hicks.  These teachers all had an incredible impact on my mindset but I always felt like something was missing. Even though I achieved some great results I seemed to fall back into old habits and patterns and kept repeating the same mistakes over and over again.  I tried to follow ‘The Secret’ and focused my attention on what I wanted out of life.  I thought positive thoughts and tried to block out negative ones.  The problem was that my subconscious mind was not in alignment with my goals and this often lead to self sabotage.  I had some deep seated limiting beliefs from my childhood that were preventing me from taking the next step on my journey.  I am sure many of you can relate to what I am talking about!  My life was a rollercoaster of massive success followed by self sabotage and failure.

A common pattern that we often struggle with is linking happiness with something that is achieved in the future. We convince ourselves that we will be happy when we get a pay rise, a new house, a new car,when we travel around the world, when we have kids, when the kids move out, when we retire, etc, etc.  I was stuck in this trap of wishing my life away and hoping that the future would lead to happiness.  The problem is that the future never arrives.  It’s like a dog chasing it’s tail!

The truth is that we need to learn to live in the present moment and make a decision to be happy now!

The problem with most Personal Development courses is that they stack hundreds of positive beliefs and affirmations on top of a dodgy foundation of limiting beliefs.  It is like trying to build a million dollar mansion on rotten stumps.  Sooner or later it will fall to pieces!

In May 2009 I was introduced to an amazing program called Avatar and I was completely blown away!   Avatar provides us with the tools to find our own answers and build a solid foundation. We learn how to take full responsibilty for our current reality.  Success in life is not possible when our subconscious blueprint is programmed for failure. We must understand this blueprint before we can change our lives.

Avatar enabled me to overcome limiting beliefs that had been holding me back for years. I discovered how to replace these Limiting Beliefs with Empowering Creations. I now have a wide range of tools to overcome all of life’s challenges and obstacles.  I have reconnected with who I really am and can now operate from intuition and feel rather than being controlled by the mind!  I believe we all have the power to create our own reality.  Avatar teaches us how to find the answers.

The answers lie within ourselves!

I now believe that the key to true happiness comes from service to others and making a difference.  Happiness is not found in material items or posessions.

We are all here to make a difference and have a positive impact on the lives of others.  Avatar has helped me to peel back the layers of limiting beliefs and I now feel empowered to create my own reality without limitation.

I have created this blog to assist you on your personal journey.  Hopefully you can learn from many of my mistakes and avoid the same traps that I fell into time and time again!  Investment strategies are not the answer, material possessions are not the answer and money is not the answer.

Ask yourself the following questions:

What can you do to make a difference in the world today?  Who can you support to move forward?  What are you grateful for in the present moment?  What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

When you operate from a place of service to others and making a difference you will create more money and happiness than you ever imagined was possible!

My adivce to everyone on this journey is to invest in a program like Avatar to ensure that your beliefs are in perfect alignment with what you want to achieve.  Our beliefs create our reality.  Limiting beliefs will continue to sabotage your results over and over again.  Avatar is the only program I have found that successfully discreates limiting beliefs and replaces them with empowering creations.

I believe the ego driven world of competition, materialism and selfishness is now falling down.  We are all awakening to a higher level of human consciousness and aNew Earthis coming.

I am so excited about the future and I look forward to sharing this amazing journey with you!

To Your Success!

Brad Cusworth
