Million Dollar Experiment: Personal Development for Smart People
Since the polyphasic sleep experiment has gone so well, I figured it would be nice to try another interesting experiment in a different area of life. This one will be financial in nature. I’m... More > going to see if I can manifest $1 million by using the intention-manifestation model.
Consequently, I’ve decided to try a new experiment to see if I can attract a large sum of money into my life. I arbitrarily opted for $1 million, since that’s a significant enough sum that I’ll definitely notice it. So basically I’m going to attempt to become a millionaire. And most of all, I’m going to attempt it by using the intention-manifestation model to make it more fun and challenging. This means I’ll allow myself to be guided by intuition as opposed to rigidly planning out every detail. I’m also not planning to directly spend any of my existing cash to get it, except through reinvesting cash that comes by way of the experiment.
Total Manifested = $5,677,075.71

Passive Income - Personal Development for Smart People
Passive income is money that comes to you even when you’re not actively working, such as royalties, investment income, and revenue from automated business systems.
I started earning passive... More > income in the 1990s by creating, selling, and licensing computer games. Once those deals and systems were established, I continued to earn money from those products year after year.
This approach soon became a habit. It took me many years to figure out how to make a living this way, and I went bankrupt along the way, but eventually I learned what I needed to learn. It works, and I definitely appreciate the benefits of it.
The truth is that it’s much, much easier to earn passive income today than it was when I first began on this path. Earning passive income is not difficult. The how-to part — the actual doing of it — is fairly straightforward.
This book is composed of the articles from Steve Pavlina's website. It contains Passive Income Series articles.
