The Prosperity Game Journal Part 3

Part 3 of The Prosperity Game Mastermind Partners.

The Prosperity Game continues. The idea is to receive imaginary checks in your email box every day. The first check is for $250.00 and goes up from there. This journal continues starting with $128,000.  When I started, I didn’t realize that 2 weeks would need 4 posts. I want to document all the stages until I receive the last check.  Do you think I finished the game? You will see on the next and final post. This post is my continuing journal of my experience. If you missed:

The rules are:

and announce to the group
Where your money came from? and
How do you choose to allocate it?

Remember, assume your debts are paid…

The Prosperity Game

$128,000

This is unreal! I received several deposits in my bank account totaling $128,000 today! My business is taking off and I am generating a substantial amount every day!

I made $81,000 for 9 MOBE Licensee, Platinum and Titanium Sales. I landed a huge graphic design job and earned $10,000, sold one Solo Package for $15,750, 7 EN sales@$1625 totaling $11,375, and 3 EN Sales@$1625 totaling $4875. I also received $5000 for the last 3 months for online coaching.

After watching Dan’s video, I really wanted to make a contribution which would be significant, meaningful, and make a difference for a lot of people in need. I earned my American Farmer Degree in the Future Farmers of America which is the highest degree attainable in the organization. I am so grateful for what the National FFA has done for me and thousands of young people in America. As any organization, they need contributions to continue doing their great work. “FFA continues to be blessed with wonderful corporate sponsors. But now, more than ever, FFA needs our individual support, a chance to give back to the organization that gave us each individually so much!” Some of their programs include various humanity efforts such as feeding hungry children in America and globally. They also work with a Nashville-based Soles4Souls, which since 2005 has secured  more than 17 million new and gently used shoes for people throughout the world.

So I contributed $100,000 to the organization. All the money contributed will be matched by a gift program called the Leadership Matching Challenge. They will match dollar for dollar up to $100,000 so that means my $100.000 will be a whopping $200.000 for a cause that is dear to my heart.  It feels wonderful to have the capability to give back. The Prosperity Game

This part of the game has created an emotion I don’t think I’ve ever felt before.

The remaining $28,000 is going back into my business to buy leads and advertising.

At first I was planning to buy livestock projects to help some of the kids in the community, but I wanted to go bigger. That will be my next project to help out on a local scale.

$256,000

The money is flowing! Today I received a total of $256,000. I was able to generate a bucket load of sales from the $28,000 I put back into buying leads. I reinvested $12,000 in leads which brought in 240 sales @ $1000 totaling $240,000 I used the remaining 16,000 for banner advertising. I bought 4 banner ads on 4 high traffic sights @$4,000 each to run for 6 months. I also made 9 EN Sales $1625 totaling $14,625. Then I picked up $1375 for a small graphics project which included designing 3 small banner ads for a clients website.

This is so exciting! I’m going to buy my daughter an art gallery downtown. When I first arrived here, she took me to a building she showed me as her dream art gallery. I’m going to make her dream come true. I’ve decided to use the $256,000 for a down payment on the property.

This part of the game is challenging because I’m working with high numbers. I was at the store today getting gas and as I was paying, I noticed a sign advertising the lottery and there was a picture of a man holding a big check for $200,000 and I thought to myself, if this guy hasn’t done any type of mental preparation, he’s going to go out and spend all of his money and he will probably be back at square one. Playing this game is teaching me it’s not all about spending money. A lot of thought and decision making goes into playing it well.

A couple of quick notes I noticed this morning. I hesitated opening my email because even though I knew my check would probably double, it is something I had to deal with. I asked myself, “Why did I hesitate?” Maybe I have a little bit of fear about abundance. It never crossed my mind that would be an issue. After I opened it, I needed time to think about how I generated it and how I would spend it. In the process, I feel today I finally accepted the “big numbers” and got over the fear. I can see how my belief system has held me back from dreaming bigger. I’m looking forward to the next level because today I thought of so many new possibilities of being prosperous, which a few days ago, I struggled. I also think I am starting to understand what prosperity is. I love this game!

$512,000

What an exciting day! I brought in $512,000! Since I started the game, my list has grown to over 150,000 subscribers! I was able to sell 2 Solo Packages for $49,000 ($98,000) because my list can deliver! I received two calls from two people who are looking for coaching. I set an appointment with them tomorrow to see if they want to participate in my program.

MOBE is doing extremely well. I brought in $391,000 from 301 sales@$1000 = $301,000 and 10 sales@$9000.00 = $90,000 (Platinum and Titanium) in one day!

EN brought in 11 sales@1625 = $17,875 plus 1 sale@5125=$5125 ($23,000).

I reinvested $100.000 to generate more leads in my business and it will give me the boost I need to keep the sales coming in. I also bought $60,000 of fresh leads for my list. I’m using a portion of that money to run a full blown campaign to promote MPP.

I paid another $200,000 for my daughter’s art gallery which covers $456,000 of the $700,000. It’s a beautiful building located on a corner downtown. It’s perfect for an art gallery and this community prides itself in presenting incredible artwork to visitors from all over the world.

I’m investing $100,000 in gold and silver coins. I already have a collection of silver, so I’m delighted to buy some gold and build my collection.

Since I made that generous donation to the National FFA Organization, I’ve been receiving several donation requests from groups in my community. I donated $65,000 locally to the Children’s Miracle Network. I love the feeling of being able to make such a very nice contribution. It will help a lot of children. The people of the foundation were thrilled and very appreciative.:)

My business is doing so well! I’m in the market for a waterfront home on the lake. As I was searching for my dream home, some of my mind chatter went like this. “It’s a beautiful house, but there’s so much to clean…look at all the windows…looks like too much space…do I really need a kitchen that big?…do I really want that much of a house? I started searching for smaller, less expensive homes. Then I thought, “expand and just go for it and find what you like….get rid of the boundaries..don’t worry about cleaning (I can hire someone to upkeep if that is an issue)…another mental hurdle.

This morning I didn’t hesitate opening The Prosperity Game email.

I’m getting better at handling the large numbers and I noticed that I feel better when I write out the amounts…such as $456.000 rather than $456,000. It may be a way to “control” the numbers. I want to pencil everything out so I understand how the money is generated and believe it is possible. Obviously more money has to be reinvested into my business to increase profits and keep the momentum. It’s the same concept on a smaller scale. The numbers are just bigger…

This game makes me feel tingly inside….:)

The Prosperity Game is an excellent way to expand your mindset about money and teaches you what you really feel about prosperity. The group helps with accountability and I’m learning a lot about my thought processes and other peoples views.

The Mastermind Partner Program will be playing The Prosperity Game, in March, so if you are interested in participating in a future game, connect with me. The Prosperity Game is free.

The Prosperity Game uses Wikipedia definition: Prosperity is the state of flourishing, thriving, good fortune and / or successful social status. Prosperity often encompasses wealth but also includes others factors which are independent of wealth to varying degrees, such as happiness and health.

  1. Raena,
    I was on the edge of my seat waiting for part 3 and see how you are doing. Well, seems to me like you are learning how to deal with bigger numbers wisely. That’s what I enjoy about this game. It makes it “real” in your mind.

    Your emotional response giving money to The National FFA Organization, really hit your heart and inner soul. That’s the NLP I like to see. After all, your subconscious may be fighting you, but you have won! You now have the mental preparation and emotional preparation for those higher numbers that WILL come into your life.

    Putting that down payment on a property for your daughter must have been a high! That is something every mom would like to do for their daughter.

    Having that butterfly feeling in your stomach when opening up the mail to receive money is so great! Now you know where to invest it so it grows. Most people on this good old planet are not used to having large sums of money. So what happens, they lose it fast because they are not prepared. They spend it foolishly. Hey, how many people in Hollywood go bankrupt. We are shocked when we hear that aren’t we. Well, I guess they were not prepared for the large sums of money coming in.

    This is like NLP and the Law of Attraction all rolled up into one. Plus learning economics and how it really works.

    I think that when people are not prepared like this in business, it is only a concept, not an actual plan. They will get their first large chunk of money and spend it on themselves, rather than spreading it out and using it wisely so it can grow.

    Many blessings to you my friend. Now you will know what to do when those checks are the real thing.

      Hi Donna,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the post. The game got really fun when you can give huge amounts of money to others! It is a matter of really opening your mind to all the possibilities. Yes, getting the house, and car was fun. I especially loved thinking about buying property for my daughter. The game worked in waves. I’d hit a bump, then get over it. When the big numbers came in, it wasn’t so easy at times. You are right. Most people don’t have large sums of money to deal with and it wasn’t like I thought it would be. There must be a strategy, or becoming broke really fast is definitely a reality. I’ve heard the same story over and over about people who win the lottery or celebrities who become broke.

      The most rewarding part of the game is taking the concept then applying it by going through the motions of figuring out how it was created and how to spend it. The giving part is awesome! Thanks for your thoughtful comments.

    Wow Raena, I was excited about this post too. I knew the numbers would continue to get bigger and I know you’ve come a long way since starting this so I was curious to see how you really did.

    You are still having some hesitation in places but you’re getting there. See, you’re talking this through and figuring out along the way why you’re thinking what you are and what you need to do to move past that. I’m so excited for you and I love learning how you made the money and how your spent it.

    I know for a fact my way of thinking about prosperity was exactly like yours was. I guess I was raised so budget conscious that it’s second nature to me. This will definitely be an interesting game to play when it comes back around next month. I’m actually kind of nervous about it because I’ve seen the work you’ve done although I know it’s something I need to go through as well.

    Job well done Raena, job well done!

      Hi Adrienne,

      I’m so glad that you are willing to play the game. It has been interesting. Some new opportunities have sprung up and I really believe it is because I changed my thinking. I think the game was more difficult during the first quarter, and it got easier once I was able to switch my way of thinking and get through some of the hesitations and in some cases, barriers. There is nothing wrong with being budget conscious. Actually it took some thought and planning to allocate some of the money as the numbers got bigger. When I started, I didn’t know it would turn out that way. So even with larger sums of money, there is a budget, but it’s a lot bigger! Don’t be nervous! I think you will benefit. The important thing is once you commit to the two weeks, you must stick with it all the way through. Knowing you, I have no doubts!

  4. Raena, I was feeling your excitement every time you shared this experience with us in our Mastermind Group every week. Your energy and smile were so contagious.

    I too have found when talking with you, Donna Merrill, Barbara Charles, Adrienne Smith, Sylviane Nuccio, and Sue Price that I some times I fall into the trap of feeling that I don’t deserve some thing and have a tendency to feel a need to explain myself. This Prosperity game would have been a great experience for me.

    Thank you for sharing this journal with us and your ah ha moments.

      Hi Michael,

      The “deserve” issue is huge. I think most of us in the group had to deal with it during the game at some point. All of us deserve to acquire whatever we want. If you feel you don’t “deserve,” this game will help you get through that barrier. I think it is so important because it is one of the key factors that hold a lot of people back and not being able to receive. Thank you for your comment!

    Hi Raena

    Wow I like Donna and Adrienne was eagerly looking forward to part three. Thanks so much for sharing your journey here with us.

    I can see how you are now playing a so much bigger game.

    I saw a documentary with Melinda Gates (Bill’s wife) recently. As I am sure you know she heads up their charity business. She was so passionate about their calling to stop world hunger. I am sure when he started Microsoft that was not his reason but it is interesting when people get all the “things” they can use or imagine they needhow a bigger purpose takes over.

    Loving sharing your journey with you Raena.

      Hi Sue,

      Well, the last and final part is next. You will see that at that point, there is a shift. We move from our tiny little world and slowly start looking at the bigger picture. It is a step by step process. When I believed I could really contribute in a big way, there was no better feeling. It gave me a stronger sense of purpose, peace and joy. The vision possibilities becomes more tangible when allocating specific amounts of money. When I was making the decision to give, it took time and research rather than a statement in my head like, “I want to contribute to help world hunger.” The game helps you get specific with real numbers. Thanks for you comment Sue. I really appreciate it!

  6. Okay, I confess I was a total skeptic at first, but I’m so excited for you Raena! You also really got me thinking about the whole mental attitude thing and how we can so easily block prosperity. In fact, last month I lowered the price of one of my books because – we’ll others in the same category were selling at the lower price, and after all “who am I?!” Fortunately, I eventually knocked myself out of that mental frame of mind, bumped the price back up and ended up selling MORE at the higher price! Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

      Hi Marquita,

      I admit that I didn’t realize the benefits I would receive by playing this game. It was exciting because it was new and I had no idea where it would take me. Thanks for sharing your experience with your book. My daughter is an artist and she was selling her art work during a weekend art fair. She was among other artists and as the weekend winded down, one of the other artist’s lowered her prices in hopes that she could sell more. My daughter had the option to do that, but was taught that other people will buy “your perceived value.” When the price is lowered, the value goes down, which does not necessarily lead to selling more. She was able to sell her artwork without lowering the value. When you increased the price of your book, it gave it more value. If you price it a little over everyone else’s in the category, somehow it is perceived as the best one by the people with the mindset you want to attract. Congratulations on your book, and thanks!

    I admire your willingness to learn and try new things, putting it “out there” too, where others can see your thinking about the process, or in this case, the game.

    I have seen someone else go through this. You say there is a FB group for those participating. I wonder how open they are with people taking different points of view regarding the uses of wealth and reactions to wealth, or alternatively whether there is a kind of tribe view of what is right, what is “positive,” and so on.

  8. Gene Call says:

    Raena Lynn—I appreciate a concept at the center of this approach. We all get so self absorbed. One of my all time favorite books was one that got a lot of attention a few years back called Purpose Driven Life. The opening line was “It’s not about you.” We need to understand that the design of the universe means that we meet our needs by meeting the needs of others! Thanks for the post!

      Hi Gene,

      When the game started, I admit, it was all about me. I was focused on petty expenses and bills. As the game progressed, and my wants were taken care of, it was so wonderful to move beyond and reach out to others. There was one point in the game when I donated $100,000 for the National Future Farmers Organization, I actually got emotional and cried because it felt so good to be able to give back to others in such a big way. What sweetened the deal, is the organization matched my funds. At that point in the game, I didn’t know that I was going to have another opportunity to give on a global scale. My choice to donate over $1 million was to Heifer International…another euphoric emotion. At that point, when I was able to dabble in a little philanthropy, it satisfied my need for purpose. Your book suggestion “Purpose Driven Life” sounds like something I want to read. Thank you and thanks for stopping by.

  9. Woo Hoo Raena! What a unique approach to coming into energetic alignment with your goals and desires. What I especially appreciate is the focus on “practicing”. May you continuously move your life in the direction of what brings you true joy and fulfillment.

    Thank you for sharing your journey Raena. It brought such a smile to my face reading about your contribution to an organization in need. Very happy that you are enjoying life and helping others. That has been my goal for several years! Life became so much more joyful when I came to the point where others beyond family and friends became just as important.

  11. Hi Raena,

    Gosh it seems that I’m really behind on your blog posts, but I am so busy that I need a reminder, and I don’t see your post links anywhere to remind me 🙂 Promise I will get better.

    This is really an exciting game that really makes you FEEL what it is to bring up large sums of money. I bet your vibrations have gone to the roof with this game/exercise. And I see that you’ve already seen some results. You go girl!

    I will check your other posts as well, Raena.

      Hi Sylviane,

      Hey, no need to apologize. We are all so busy. I’m glad to see you made it. It’s been a great ride, and now I need to make it happen in reality. I know some of my sales in the game were huge, but I believe it’s possible. I suppose the major impact was opening my mind to possibilities I didn’t see before. I didn’t know when I started the game that it would take 4 posts to share all of it. I wanted to share from start to finish. I think most people who read them were inspired and it got them thinking about their own money perceptions and what prosperity really means. Thanks for your comments!

    Excellent. 🙂

    The amount of time and energy you put into playing a game about money can make a huge difference in how you feel about money. Our lives are all about how we feel, we tell ourselves that it’s not that way, but in fact it is.

    There is no separation of our personal lives from our business or from our emotions, all these things are tied together, and that feeling of success is something you are going to have in your heart for a long time. And that will make it infinitely easier to bring more and more success into your life until you will wonder how you ever thought any other way.

      Hi Michael,

      You are full of infinite wisdom! I always learn something new from your comments. I believe that playing the game has made a huge impact on my perspective about money. I’m grateful I did it because I knew I had a couple of hangups that needed to be changed. The prosperity game gave me a chance to find out where I had stuck beliefs. Actually doing the calculations, writing them out, and being accountable made the game very effective. Thanks for your visit!

    The example you are setting demonstrate how we can through focus and imagination use our amazing brain to channel our thoughts towards positive outcomes.

    Thank you so much for sharing this!
