You study hard, get into a good college, graduate with a decent degree, find a well-paying job in a multinational corporation, and work really hard. Then you can retire happy with a truckload full of cash!

I mean, that's the formula for success and earning big bucks, right? Or so most of us were told.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not asking you to drop out of university or do anything drastic like quit your job (unless you choose to). I'm all for education and a high-profile career - if you're pursuing it for the right reasons.

What I'm saying is, making money needn't be as hard as you think. In fact, I'm going to share with you three powerful money-making secrets...

1. Break all the rules - and ditch your limiting beliefs while you're at it. It's common knowledge that some of the richest and most successful people never even graduated from college. Bill Gates, Michael Dell and Steve Jobs made their fortunes without a college degree to their name.

People often ask what these men did to amass the kind of fortune that the rest of us can only dream about. Then again, an even better question to ask is this: What didn't they do?

That's right! None of them followed The Rat Race-to-Riches Formula. Why? Because it doesn't work!

Now, you've probably been told what you can and cannot do all your life. I'm pretty sure Bill, Michael and Steve faced the same problem, too. But they chose not to listen nor believe what other people told them to. They believed in striking out on their own in the face of doubt and discouragement from the people around them.

You see sometimes, in order to get where you want to go, you need to become a rebel of sorts. You don't have to wait for people to give you their permission for you to go pursue your passions and lead the kind of life you want.

So, have the courage to break a few rules and start living the kind of life you dream of. When you are happy doing what you love and vibrating to a higher frequency, you'll start to attract wealth and abundance quickly and easily.

2.Invest in your financial knowledge and personal development.
As motivational speaker Jim Rohn, author of books like The Art of Exceptional Living, so eloquently puts it: "Work harder on yourself than you do on your job."
You should take time to attend personal development seminars, read self-help books and listen to audio programs to improve yourself. The world is always changing and you need to keep up if you don't want to be left behind. When you start to mirror the mindset of successful people, the money will start to flow straight into your bank account.
Case in point: I just signed up for an Income Booster 3-day course which cost $2,000 and I'm happier than when I bought diamonds. Why? Because I know that I will triple my income after it :)

3. Ask for what you want. It's all so simple. You want a raise? Ask for it! A discount? Ask for it! More money in your life? ASK FOR IT! I'm serious!

My business venture with eight top Internet gurus happened because I opened my mouth and asked them. Of course, putting together a proposal with value before you approach people will help heaps.

The Law of Attraction works - but the problem with most people is that they don't feel that they deserve the right to ask for what they want. In such cases, the power of the Law of Attraction usually fizzles out.

The minute you commit to these three powerful moves, true wealth starts coming your way. Of course, you still have to work hard. But, as I said, it won't be that hard when you've already got the right mindset.
