This Simple “Litmus Test”
Predicts Your Future Wealth…
We’re going to have some fun today.
In just a minute I’m going to share a simple 10 second test that will predict your future wealth.
This isn’t mentalism or phony crystal ball stuff.
It has successfully predicted people’s future wealth with breathtaking accuracy.
I know, because long before I joined the EVG research team, I had a reputation among my friends as a financial “psychic” just by using this simple tactic.
Here’s the story …
A Long, Long Time Ago…
During my early post-college days, most of my friends thought I had super-powers…
Because I accurately predicted how successful each of them would be in their first jobs out of school.
In fact, I was 92.8% accurate (13 out of 14 correct predictions).
But that wasn’t enough for me.
I told them I could also predict who among us would become wealthy and successful in life, and who would remain poor.
25 years later, those predictions are Nostradamus-like in accuracy.
How did I do it?
I’ll explain in a minute, but first I want you to realize I employed science rather than ESP to pull off this trick.
THAT’S why it was so accurate for them … and can be for you, too.
Ok, so here’s what I did it:
I’d simply schedule a visit to their homes and ask for a tour.
As we moved around the house, I’d comment on their furnishings, ask about pictures and wall hangings.
I’d even discuss the color of their bathroom towels, the thread count of their bedding or the style of their window treatments.
Odd little things like that.
It was all just a clever distraction.
I was really only looking for TWO KEY ITEMS.
Because the truth was…
Only Two Key Items In Their Home
Predicted Their Financial Future
After the tour, I’d sit down with my friends and give them my prophetic prediction.
It was interesting to watch their faces…
Expectant hope melting into discouraged disappointment if I told them they’d stay poor.
Or a jubilant burst of smiles if I told them they’d be rich.
My reputation grew as time went on.
They all tried to figure out how I did it.
Some thought they knew and tried to fool me.
Since everyone knew I was a health nut, they’d purposely have fresh organic food in their fridge when I visited.
Or make sure their exercise gear was in plain site.
One gal scrubbed her kitchen so clean a germaphobe would have enjoyed licking food off the floor.
One guy even spent half his paycheck to fill his apartment with live, oxygenating plants…
All in an attempt to “stack the deck” in their favor when I came to visit…
Hoping one of those “fixes” would magically change their future fortune.
All those things probably improved their lives.
But they told me NOTHING about their future prosperity.
And the real “fix” to ensure prosperity in their lives was MUCH simpler.
Like I said, I was only looking for two key items.
If one of those items were “big” and the other “small,” I KNEW they’d be successful.
And probably rich.
If they had it wrong, I could EASILY foretell financial mediocrity.
Did you figure it out yet?
Have you guessed the two items I was looking for?
The answer is simple.
All I was looking for was the size of their library vs. the size of their TV.
If their library was bigger than their TV, I could easily predict wealth and success in their future.
This was especially true if their library was heavily stocked with non-fiction titles.
You know, “how to” books and courses on subjects like time management, investing, business systems, relationship building, networking…
And so on and so forth.
Because invariably, the richest people I know (who make 6, 7 and 8 figures per year) …
All have small TVs…
And HUGE libraries.
The richest of the rich have NO TV set at all!
I have to admit … this was hardly an original idea of mine.
I first heard it in the early 1980’s from Jim Rohn, one of the pioneers of motivational speaking (he inspired Tony Robbins!)
“Poor people have big TVs.
Rich people have big libraries”
I love that quote.
And as I discovered, it’s more than a pithy phrase.
It’s an actual a litmus test that will accurately predict your future wealth.
This isn’t some new-fangled “new-age” phenomenon either.
It’s as old as mankind.
Confucius said it this way 25 hundred years ago…
“No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.”
But it is the truth.
Here’s Why This Test
Doesn’t Work any More…
This little trick has been eerily accurate for me over the last several decades to successfully predict the future wealth of my friends.
But I have a confession to make.
My “super powers” have been fading over the past few years.
It has nothing to do with the economy … or kryptonite. Not even Obamacare (haha … couldn’t resist!)
It has more to do with these two handy little devices called a laptop and a “kindle.”
You see, it’s now possible for my friends to have an entire library of inspirational and how-to goodies tucked away in a tiny hand-held device without anyone being able to “see” it.
So don’t get me wrong.
The actual test itself is still valid. You can (and should) apply it to yourself.
It’s just that my “tour someone’s house” method doesn’t always work anymore!
The best thing for YOU: it’s now easier than ever to follow Confucius’ advice.
Just fill your electronic device with nonfiction goodness. And use it.
It’s the surest (and historically proven) path to future prosperity.
How to Use this Test to Improve Your Life and Prosperity
So here’s the simple test for yourself.
Is your TV bigger than your non-fiction library?
Do you spend more time watching mindless prime-time programming than you do on cultivating your brain with life-changing information?
This isn’t about judging you.
There’s always a time and a place for entertainment.
But overdosing on frivolity can be more ruinous than most people realize.
The middle class is typically strung out on their “TV fix” every weekday night. Like mesmerized zombies.
Meanwhile the wealthy are learning new ways to be more productive…
How to eat healthier.
And honing skills to improve their value to society (and make more money in the process).
Is it any wonder the rich keep getting richer?
And the middle class stays mired in mediocrity?
Here’s What to Do
If You Failed the Test…
Even if you fail the TV test, you can easily reverse the results.
Start by grabbing some great non-fiction books. We have a big list of recommendations in the Elevation Group membership site.
Replace just one of your favorite TV programs with a half-hour or hour of reading.
At first it’ll feel like you’re missing out on something big. You’re not.
Soon you’ll eagerly look forward to your “learning time.”
And I guarantee you won’t miss that silly sitcom or reality show (that isn’t even reality at all).
Seriously. Which activity do you think will have a bigger impact on your future life and prosperity?
If you want the prosperity of the rich, you know the right choice.
And if you ever need some “meaty” non-fiction reading or learning, we’ve got plenty for you to chew on in The Elevation Group.
An EVG membership is the only place you’ll find the investment strategies of the ultra-rich made accessible to anyone who wants to improve their prosperity.
It’s available to anyone who sees the wisdom of Confucius …
And wants to grow in wisdom … and prosperity.
