I had the good pleasure of interviewing John Assaraf, one of the featured experts in “The Secret” on a live telephone conference!
Take-Aways from Q&A with John Assaraf
- The popular belief is that new behaviors take 30 days to be developed. John disagrees and suggests that new habits take 56 to 90 days.
- John is a fan of speed and velocity but he also advocates that doubling, tripling, or quadrupling your income takes time and effort. You can’t change your mindset quickly. Millions of people start with enthusiasm and then they quit because they don’t have the support and structure to push through the mental hurdle of doing something outside of the mind’s habitual pattern.
- In order to have the ability to achieve great success, you need to be inspired by why you’re doing what you’re doing. Too many people are motivated by the bigger house, faster car, thinner waistline but those sources of motivation are not big enough. You need to look more closely at your values that are aligned with who you really are.
- There are 9 or 10 major departments to building a business: finance, marketing, operations, etc…. As an entrepreneur, you need to define what your vision is for each of those areas, determine who’s going to be responsible for creating success for each, and who’s going to do the work. A lot of entrepreneurs try to do all of it. Looking at each area allows you to see where you need to hire someone else with greater expertise or partner with others. You can’t do it all. RACI charts are similar to the model that John mentioned in the call. It’s a tool for looking at all the areas of responsibility and defining what roles and responsibilities are being accomplished by whom. Here’s the chart John uses and here’s the RACI template we’ve used here at Noomii.
- For every negative thought, you need to replace it with 5 positive thoughts. This is based on research done by Barb Fredrickson (who I wrote about in this post about how to show appreciation). I don’t think what John stated is representing the research exactly right but the take-away is no less valuable. An optimal positivity to negativity ratio is 5:1. If you suspect that your ratio is less than that, you want to find ways to retrain your brain to think positive thoughts.
There are more insights and I invite you to listen to the whole thing.

Winning the Game of Money: NeuroTraining System!
John mentioned a program that he has created called Winning the Game of Money. What I like most about it is the disclaimer that makes it clear that it is not a get-rich-quick-scheme. You need to be committed to creating your own success and you need to get off your butt and do something about it:
“Income examples are representative of some of the most successful participants in Praxis Now, LLC programs. Some individuals purchasing a program may experience little or no increase in their income. Client testimonials are not a guarantee that you will be happier, healthier, more successful, or more wealthy. Individual results will vary greatly according to your input, determination, hard work, and ability to follow directions.”
In other words, this program is not for any fool to follow. You need to be ready to make some changes.
Here are more details about the program from his website:
There is an outer game to making more money and there is an “Inner Game” that you have to win first. Scarcity and financial hardship can easily become a reality in your life, regardless of external factors, like whether the economy is up or down; and internal variables, including your own conscious or unconscious self doubts and fears.
The truth is that financial abundance is available to you, as it is to everyone. And it’s not about working harder.To create real and lasting change in your financial life, you must first change your subconscious patterns and limiting beliefs, which in turn will change your perceptions, emotions and daily habits around making and keeping money. This is how you transform your financial destiny — and your life — from the inside out!
No other program in the world today does this as well, as fast, and as easily as Winning the Game of Money. Based on decades of painstaking brain research, this evidence-based program combines the most effective techniques from the most current scientific methods, including:
- Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)
- Guided and Self-Hypnosis
- Embedded Positive Suggestions
- Brain Entrainment
- Sound Wave Patterns
- 3-D / Surround-SoundTechnology
- Precision Affirmations
- Subliminal Messages
- Emotional FreedomTechnique
- Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing
- Guided Visualization Sessions
- Meditation and Mindfulness
Alone, each of these are powerful methodologies. We have scientifically engineered all of them into a multi-layered, nine-level, synergistic audio-based brain retraining system that is the most powerful program in the world. It enables you to achieve a successful business that is congruent with your values, and the life you have always desired and deserved.
Winning the Game of Money is a tiered, nine-level, proprietary system that accesses the part of the implicit brain that keeps people stuck. It will enable you to get unstuck and get you focused on releasing the thoughts and negative behaviors that are keeping you stuck right now. In just a short timeframe you’ll develop the thought patterns and actions of highly successful people.
This is a progressive program that will transform your financial results and life. All it takes is 30 minutes per day of “Innercise” using this program for 90 days, and Winning the Game of Money will change your life forever. Imagine doing, being and having everything you’ve always dreamed of and making that a reality right now Or… you could continue to live with scarcity and limitations, and wonder what might have been had you taken action and actually reprogrammed your brain to effortlessly attract wealth.
Are you interested? Or are you truly committed to taking control of your financial destiny?
