When the family of footballer Emiliano Sala needed money to search for his body after the plane in which he was travelling to his new club Cardiff City went down in the English Channel, they launched a fundraising campaign which raised £300,000 Euros in a few days.
The money came very quickly out of nowhere, which illustrates that despite what some people say, money around everywhere.
In fact, there is over a trillion Dollars circulating right now. This does not include the hundreds of billions in pension funds, venture capital and hedge all looking for places to invest.
Here are a few more examples;
John Lennons wife once asked him for a Swimming pool and he said "okay I’ll write you one".
When the ISKCON Hari Krishna movement approached George Harrison, for help to fund a new centre in the UK in the early 1970’s, he donated money for a property and wrote the album All Things Must Pass to help raise the money for the movement. One of the massive hits from that triple album was My Sweet Lord, which featured the chant Hari Krishna and went on to sell 7 million copies, outstripping sales by his former Beatle colleagues after the band split. The property Bhaktiavedanta Manor in Hertfordshire is still there today. I have visited the manor many times and walked in the commemorative garden opened by his widow Olivia.
I read a story once of a Guru in India who needed millions of dollars to fund a new temple and centre. He was asked, where is the money going to come from? He replied, “from where ever it is now “.
People with this level of mindset realise that when you have a project or a goal money is no object. The money is out there and you just have to find it, attracted, manifest it, ask for it or whatever you want to call it.
I remember once in the 1990s when property prices were at rock bottom, confidence was at almost an all-time low and experts were predicting that it would take 20 years for the market to recover. I knew in my gut that this was nonsense and had an idea to buy a certain type of property which could easily be split up into rooms. At the time, the houses in East London was selling for £65,000. I knew that the three bedroom properties could easily be split into five rentable rooms as I was arranging mortgages for a client of mine who is making a fortune doing just that. The problem was, I was broke! I had no cash and lending was super tight.
I put together a plan and approached two of three people who just couldn’t see it the way I did. Disheartened and disillusioned, I gave up. I still have that for page plan somewhere, but that’s all it is a piece of paper with some ideas that never came to fruition. I often pass that street, with the houses now so far close to half £1 million and wonder “what if”!
If I had the sort of mindset that I have now I would’ve easily raised the money with a couple of phone calls.
By contrast, a famous financier and ‘corporate raider’, Jim Slater, who was an early mentor to billionaire Sir James Goldsmith had been made bankrupt when his investment fund collapsed.
Within a few years, he had bounced back and made a fortune for him and his city friends by converting warehouses along the river Thames into expensive apartments.
You could argue that it was” alright for him” as he had all his mates in the city. But you could also say that he had the vision and foresight and the correct mindset to get back on top. He also thought big and had a much bigger vision. He went for a large, profitable project which would attract the sort of wealthy investors who shared his vision.
Billionaires and multimillionaires truly believe that if they lost everything today they would soon be rich again. Don’t forget, only a few years ago Donald Trump’s business empire was in Chapter 11 bankruptcy and people were saying he was finished.
