When Croz Crossley was in his early 40s, he left behind his business in the UK and went to Australia with the aim of teaching them how to do business.
His original plan of investing in property hadn’t worked out after his cousin told him he needed a license. It later turned out that was nothing but an urban myth, but he’d trusted what he’d been told and lost money as a result.
Instead, he used his money to buy a business, which unfortunately went under with all his money. However, once he’d sold everything he owned, he ended up with $250,000. He may have thought he was broke in comparison, but to everyone else, he still had a lot of money.
That’s when he found a book called The Science of Getting Rich, written by Wallace Wattle in 1910. For the first time in his life, he thought he’d follow directions and do as he was told. He quickly got himself back in a position which was better than he’d been before he lost everything.
Using the lessons he learned then, he’s spent more than 20 years sharing with people what he did and enabling them to make changes for themselves.
He doesn’t hold back, so are you ready to be ‘Crozzed’?
It was after The Science of Getting Rich positively changed Croz’s life that he started to put on workshops telling people about what he’d done. And that was over 20 years ago, and he’s been doing it ever since.
In that time he’s also been involved in many businesses. They’ve earned him an extensive knowledge of both business failures and successes.
After 28 years down under, he came back to the UK with the intention of retiring. Then he met Brad Burton 18 months ago, who he coached and mentored through his success. And Croz is now back in the game.
He motivates people differently to other coaches and mentors. He actually gives his clients the tools to motivate themselves.
Croz shared a video on Facebook a few weeks ago of someone shortly after they’d been in a coaching session with him. Despite looking like he’s endured 10 rounds in the ring, he is motivated to make that change, after being ‘Crozzed’.
He works on the mental image of what they can and want to achieve. Once you know that, and have faith and belief in your ability, the motivation comes naturally.
So if you’re going to ask the questions, you have to expect to hear the answer, whether or not you’re going to like it.
Croz calls himself the ‘Mindset Technician’, and that’s because he has to know what someone wants, and then give them the tools in the correct manner.
When Croz talks to people, he likes to be able to see them. That way, he can tell if they’re lying, accepting of the information, and a lot more besides. And that enables him to be able to get into their head.
Even in a workshop of around 20 people, he is able to figure out each person’s abilities and where they are positioned. Everyone needs to hear the same information, but they can’t all be given it in the same way, so he has to tailor the way he gives it in order to fit the individual.
Programmed For Success
Every one of us is programmed for successes from the moment we’re born. The trouble is, we then spend the next 20 years of our lives ruining it.
As we start to walk, gates are put up to stop us from roaming free, and when we start talking we get told off for asking too many questions. And it goes on like this.
When we actually get to a position to make decisions when we’re older, we go into our subconscious for help. By that time, it’s full of incorrect advice we’ve been given about what we can and can’t do.
Our subconscious filter then gives us the wrong answers, and we begin to doubt our own abilities. To overcome that, we need to have the correct information fed in to clean up all the negative thoughts.
Before Roger Bannister ran a mile in under four minutes, it had been thought impossible that the human body was capable of it. He did it in 1954, and within two years, seven other people had achieved it. He had removed the negative belief everyone had.
Our minds are full of incorrect information which can be removed by having proof it is wrong.
Croz recommends that we need to start believing that anything is possible again like we did when we were younger and more innocent. That way, we then stop stopping ourselves from trying.
Procrastination is often not doing something in case it becomes true, or it doesn’t work. We talk ourselves into stopping as we’re afraid of what the result might be. And that’s all due to the incorrect information we’ve been fed.
To get things done, you shouldn’t surround yourself with naysayers. Most people say you shouldn’t do something because they’d be afraid to do it themselves.
However, most successful businessmen and women are eager to share their advice, but the problem is that no-one is willing to ask them. The quickest way to success is to find someone who has already done it and then listen to them.
Actually listen to them and take their advice.
We use phones and cars without worrying about how they work. So when someone gives you advice, and you know it works, don’t get yourself bogged down just because you can’t understand how.
When you have a clear vision of what you want to achieve and have faith in it, you need no further motivation.
Establish everything about where you are now. You’ll then start to realise that you’re actually already in a good place. We’re very good at blocking out all the good things and simply focusing on everything which is bad. And that means we already have everything we need to progress forward and succeed.
Then with everything removed from the past which you’ve been carrying with you, the hazy vision of your future suddenly becomes a lot clearer.
When you know where you’re going, you’re always in the right place at the right time. The only reason we’re ever not is because we don’t know where we’re going.
Opportunities are always there. The trouble is we don’t see them when we don’t know we need them.
So Croz has three words of advice:
When you’re in a relaxed state, things sort themselves out. When you’re not stressed, things are a lot less difficult. People who are not relaxed are the people who are always hustling.
You make better decisions when you’re calm, and you will allow the right things to come to you. When you’re chasing after something, it often runs away.
And if you’re in trouble and stressed out, there are two questions which you should ask yourself:
- Have I done everything I can?
- Is there anything else I can do?
If you answer yes to the first and no to the second, then it isn’t actually a problem. There is nothing you can do about it, so just relax and stop worrying, because it won’t change the outcome.
Croz has also rewritten the Science of Getting Rich so it is in plain English. And he’ll email you a digital copy of it for free if you send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘SOGRIPE’.
