Today I want to share with you something that’s known as the “money grab”…. and it’s one of my all-time favorite activities to do in order to increase wealth consciousness.
CAUTION: You’ll look like a fool to onlookers.
If you’re one of my good friends, I’ve most likely made you do the money grab. I actually made my brother do it one of the days we were hiking in St. John, US Virgin Islands, earlier this year.. except it was extremely hot and the “grabs” were for a breeze to come off the water and cool us down.
The money grab is a very simple activity. It doesn’t require anything. Except well… to be awake.
The whole idea is simple. Think about the amount of transactions that happen every single minute around the world. People are at the grocery store buying milk, people are buying clothes on different websites, people are buying… well, you get it.
The money from these purchases isn’t being shipped in one of those crazy armored cars that’s loaded with money (like in those cool bank robber movies). That would be insane.
Imagine if for every $5 purchase someone made on their phone, an armored vehicle came and picked up the money to move it to someone else’s account. That would be a funny scene… although crazy expensive in day-to-day life. the good news is that with technology, this money is constantly flowing through around.
This activity allows you to sort of tap into it. Now i’m not saying doing this is going to instantly put money in your pocket… or that you’re stealing money from these transactions. You’re simply raising your level of awareness to it happening.. So whenever your bank account is at a number that is pisses you off, remember that the money is constantly flowing around you… you just have to find a way to step into it.

Let me know below if you’ve ever done the “money grabs” and what you thought about it!
Want to know something weird?
I enjoy brainwashing myself and others..
No, no… it’s not in that “evil, schemey, bad” way either. I enjoy positively brainwashing myself and others!
Does that sound a little out there or weird?
If so… you’ll probably love this video.
(This was a difference day/activity, but a good show of what the setup looked like)
Basically, my belief is that if you want to become more successful, you should learn about the habits of successful people. One particular habit that I came across was using mantra’s, and being deliberate about what you want in life.
When we’re young, we aren’t taught this type of stuff in school. To be specific about what you want and to create the reality you want to live in.
Right now, wherever you are in your life and business, you’re at the level you’re at because of everything you have done up until this point in time. The good news for those of you who aren’t 100% happy with your current levels of success, is that now you can be deliberate about where you want to be.
It’s not going to be easy…
Especially when you start off with declaring “I Am Wealth. I Am Abundance. I Am Joy.”
Honestly, you’ll raise a lot of red flags inside your brain. It’ll be like “nah, dude…. you’re not wealth. You’ve only got $200 in your checking account” or “Nah dudette… you aren’t abundant. You don’t even have enough to take care of yourself, how can you possibly be abundance?”
Want to know something cool about when this happens? You’ll see and witness it first-hand. Your gut might feel a little weird, or your energy level might drop. That’s perfectly normal. We’re not expected to know that we are the badasses that we are.
One thing to do is to keep at it. Keep writing out “I Am Wealth. I Am Abundance. I Am Joy.” because, as humans we will eventually give in to something if we hear it enough times.
Another thing to remember is that when you first started at anything in your life… you most likely weren’t very good at it, right? I mean when we learned how to ride bikes it’s not like we magically just had perfect balance and could ride the bike. We fell off… over and over and over again. But, did your past self give up because of a few scrapes or bruises?
Hell no! You got back up and did it.. It could be that your friend already knew how to ride a bike and you didn’t want to miss out. It could be that your parents promised to get you ice cream if you could ride your bike to a certain spot (that got me riding my bike)
Think about a couple other times in your life when you absolutely sucked at something. I’m sure there’s many times, because I know for me there have been countless times. We aren’t naturally just great at everything. We’re not robots.
(Except you, Google… I see you there reading my blog posts)
Okay. So back to the task at hand. Get your notebook and start writing out those statements. Get the book mentioned in the video here.
I AM WEALTH.
I AM ABUNDANCE.
I AM JOY.
The life where you actually realize that YOU ARE WEALTH, YOU ARE ABUNDANCE and YOU ARE JOY.
Because… right now, those feelings and thoughts are creating the future you. The one that you’re damn proud of. The you that can do anything and everything you set your mind to.
and if you still don’t quite feel that way, write down your affirmations another 100 times. This is all about the process. We’re undoing years of self-talk and replacing it with positive self-talk. It will take work. It will take effort. But it will be worth it.
Today I want to share with you an excerpt from the book Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Using the link here, you can purchase a copy of the book on Amazon. I highly recommend picking up a physical copy of this book. However, if you sign up for my newsletter here, or in the form below, you can get a free copy of the digital book.
1) Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money.” Be definite as to the amount.
2) Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire. (There is no such reality as “something for nothing.”)
3) Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire.
4) Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.
5) Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.
6) Read your written statement aloud, twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. As you read – see and feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money.
It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe, and follow the instructions in the sixth paragraph. You may complain that it is impossible for you to “see yourself in possession of money” before you actually have it.
Here is where a burning desire will come to your aid. If you truly desire money so keenly that you desire is an obsession, you will have no difficulty in convincing yourself that you will acquire it. The object is to want money, and to become so determined to have it that you convince yourself you will have it.
The process that is listed above seems to simple, which is why so many people don’t follow through with it. Instead of putting in the time to write out their own specific goals and follow these 6 steps, they’ll just keep doing things the way they always have done things.
But, if you want to truly change your life it’s recommended to put aside the ego and follow the steps laid out for us by people who have done what they are teaching. People like Napoleon Hill who dedicated his life to understanding how to become wealthy.
My challenge for you is to actually follow through with this activity, and to give it a minimum of 30 days with doing step 6. It’s going to be hard. You’re not going to want to do it and you might feel like a weirdo when you’re doing it. But, put aside your self-talk and give this a shot. I’m willing to bet that your life will never be the same after that 30 days.
Now what I want you to do is comment below “I’m in” if you’re going to give this a shot. If you say “I’m in”, you are committing to trying this for at least 30 days. This is a public accountability check for you and once you commit, you should follow through with it.
Here’s a video from Napoleon Hill
We can all admit that some days are better than others. Some days we just wake up on the wrong side of the bed, maybe a little hungover or just feeling “off”…
Most of the time we just accept that this is the way today is going to be. BUT, it doesn’t have to be that way.
In fact, you can drastically change your state in minutes with this simple trick.
In this video you’ll learn about the “Chris is Awesome” folder and how you can create the same thing in your life to have a little “mindset hack” to immediately change your mood.
After watching this video, you’ll create your own “Chris is Awesome” folder for yourself and start filling it with awesome stuff you’ve done over the past few years.
You can put pictures of cool things you’ve done, messages that people have sent you thanking you for things, you can even put pictures of things you’ve always wanted in the folder. It’s up to you!
The goal of the folder is to make it nearly impossible for you to continue having a bad day after you’ve gone through it.
So what are you waiting for? Start creating your “Chris is Awesome” folder today!

Location: sitting in the Suite de Catalani Hotel in Napoli, Italy
Time: 12:03 pm
So yesterday Sam and I went to explore Pompeii…
Pompeii is a vast archaeological site in southern Italy’s Campania region, near the coast of the Bay of Naples. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The preserved site features excavated ruins of streets and houses that visitors can freely explore. via Wikipedia
To be honest with you, I wasn’t that excited to visit Pompeii. I guess I just didn’t know anything about the city, the eruption, the history… nada.
Plus, the fact that Sam and I have been traveling pretty much non-stop the last month and a half, it’s been pretty overwhelming.
Good ole History class at my high school never caught my interest. It just never was too interesting to me. Probably the lack of enthusiasm. Maybe the evolution of Augmented Reality will change that for future generations, making the cities/history come alive in real time just like a traditional tour guide can do.
(honestly, that’s a great idea to set up for anyone building AR businesses)
However… in my travels I’ve noticed that history can be pretty epic. In fact, it can be super interesting if you find someone who’s truly passionate about the subject to guide you.
Our guide, Maria , was definitely the right person for exploring Pompeii.
Right now we’re staying up in Napoli (aka Naples), so it was a pretty short trip compared to going from Rome to Pompeii. In fact, it’s pretty simple if you follow this guide on how to get from Naples to Pompei.
The Pompei Scavi station…
Upon entering into Pompeii, you have a view from the outside that is just an introduction into how massive this place actually is…
It is estimated that from 1,500 to 2,000 people died in Pompeii during the 79 AD eruption; most scholars believe that the number of inhabitants of the city was somewhere between 6,000 to 20,000; therefore most Pompeians survived the pyroclastic clouds, possibly because, alerted from the early signs of the eruption, they escaped by foot, probably heading south (the Vesuvius in north of Pompeii).
Here’s a glimpse into present day and what it was said to have looked like…
A person laying down, possibly asleep
This appears to be a person covering their face and/or praying before they were completely covered…
Shoutout to Minaal the best travel bag available! I love both of mine 🙂
It’s incredible the details that were preserved in many of the houses/restaurants… for instance check out the walls here
A look into a bath house from the time period… the Pompeiians had 3 separate rooms for the process.
A hot room, a warm room and a cold room, with plumbing running water to each of them.
The rooms were lifted so that a fire could spread heat below the floor of the bath as shown below…
One thing to keep in mind while you’re walking through the streets there or if you’re just looking at these pictures is that… this was all covered by the earth. Not just a few feet either.
The majority of Pompeii was covered in 4-6m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice.
Something I found to be incredible is that they had lead pipes moving water from place to place around the city… along with public fountains where the normal people were able to get fresh water…
what’s unreal is that the little groove, where Sam’s hand is, has normal everyday wear and tear from the townspeople using this very fountain back before 79AD… the little face was where the water would flow out.
You can’t really see it in this picture, but you can actually see grooves in the road where the carts would transport goods.
Actually, here’s another interesting find… these little stepping stones were used to cross from one side of the street to the other in order to keep people’s shoes clean. The roads often had water in them.

It’s so impressive that during the excavation these pillars continued to stand.
Thanks for reading!
