"When somebody comes to me and their prosperity is blocked, there's two really big issues that I just see over and over and over, and this is. It's either they're holding on to something they should be releasing, or it's a worthiness issue. They have subconscious, subliminal programming and they don't think they're worthy. So they subconsciously self sabotage themselves." — Randy Gage

[00:00:00] Curt Mercadante: So when it comes to, you know, there's prosperity, right? It's a big word. It can be a loaded word. And some folks here might be thinking, or, or people listening, watching. Well, you know what I did I a Jocko and Robin Sharma say, Get up at 4:00 AM and I did that and I'm still not prosperous. And you know, Berg said, give more.
[00:00:22] And Randy Gage said, Tithe more. And I did it. I gave 10% to my church and I'm still not rich yet. And I followed this tactic and this thing and whatever. Cause I watch 18 podcasts and I share all their quotes on social media and the more I share their quotes, I'm still not prosperous. Where, why do you see is the number one reason someone's not prosperous and where is the fine line and balance?
[00:00:47] Like tactics and skills and the things that, not that you don't write about tactics and skills, but the things that you mostly write about.
[00:00:56] Randy Gage: Yeah. I think the problem is people [00:01:00] are think it's about tactic and skills, but it's not about tactic and skills. When somebody comes to me in their prosperity is blocked.
[00:01:10] There's two really big issues that I just see over and over and over, and this is. Uh, you know, 30 some years that I'm doing seminars and writing books and working with people, uh, and it's either they're holding on to something they should be releasing is a huge one, maybe 40% of the time, 60% of the time it's a worthiness.
[00:01:41] They have subconscious, subliminal programming and they don't think they're worthy. So they unconsciously, subconsciously self sabotage themselves. So every time they, when they find that right, perfect, [00:02:00] you know, dream match, they blow up the relationship. When they're got the great job, they find a way to get fired.
[00:02:10] When they find an amazing business, offer an incredible, uh, solution to the world that should make them very wealthy, they'll end up destroying the business because, and they have no idea they're doing that. They're doing it because they have this subliminal program that says, Money is bad or rich people are evil, or you're not supposed to be happy in this lifetime.
[00:02:35] You should be happy in the afterlife. If you pay enough penance in this lifetime, you are gonna get the real reward in your afterlife. And, um, So they're not allowing them, and they could do all the strategies, all the tactics in the world. There's each time they do that, that tactic takes 'em closer to where they wanna [00:03:00] be, but then they blow it up because they're closer to where they wanna be.
[00:03:04] And then they say, Okay, so something was wrong with the tactic. No, it wasn't something wrong with the tactic. It was wrong with what you did when the tactic or the strategy or the skill you developed actually started working. Hmm, interesting.
[00:03:24] Curt Mercadante: Yeah, it's. And one thing I think you, what I didn't, that you said was so important was they don't even know they're doing it.
[00:03:33] And often they'll blame it on everyone else but the themselves, right? Oh, it was just, the boss was stupid that, that partner I had, it just, it wasn't right for me. Or it's like the old Seinfeld episode where, uh, she ate one period a time instead of scooping the peas. So he ditches her and he blows up the relationship and it's like, that's why you broke up with her.
[00:03:54] She scooped the piece. Yeah. Um, ,
[00:03:58] Randy Gage: I haven't seen that one, [00:04:00] but yeah, it, it's just, it's, there's so many people that as soon as they start to become healthy, happy, and prosperous, they imposter syndrome kicks in or their worthiness issue kick. And so they sabotage it and they have no idea how they, why they sabotage it.
[00:04:21] And they could be doing it with alcohol. They could be doing it with hard drugs. They could be doing it with, you know, when you say, Yeah, but no, it's true. I actually have a crappy boss. Okay, great. Well, who the fuck applied for that job? Who asked for that job? That was you. You know? Well, my wife is so dysfunctional and she Okay.
[00:04:42] Who asked her to marry you? Wasn't that you? If. Checking the timeline here, you know, so you can't put that on the external factors. There really are. There are some things, Okay. I, I took off from Mexico City yesterday [00:05:00] as the earthquake was hitting, right? I turned to the guy and next to me as we were taxing down the runway, and I said, I'm pretty sure there's an earthquake happening right now.
[00:05:10] By the way, this plane is behaving on the runway. He's like, Really? I, I, I think so. You know, I've been in a few earthquakes. I, you know, and then when I land, my driver who had taken me to the airport, had sent me the thing, Hey, Mr. Randy, we just had an earthquake and he sent me the, you know, the thing of the.
[00:05:33] Chart with the graph and the si, you know, the strength of the quake and all of that. Um, that happens. There's earthquakes, there's tsunamis, there's uh, Hurricane Fiona just, you know, hit the Dominican and Puerto Rico and it's heading for, you know, other places. We all, there are those random acts that happen.
[00:05:55] You really could have a meteorite land on your [00:06:00] Bentley Continental gp. They have to land somewhere and your Bentley just might be the place. But if we're being honest, that happens. The things you have no control over, that you didn't manifest are, you know, the things you can't control are like three out of every million.
[00:06:24] And all of the rest are somehow the result of choices that you've made, behavior that you've done, actions you've taken somewhere along the way.
