Jesse Elder has developed a pretty big audience that are into self-development and a lot of spiritual / mindset principles.
The idea that the reason why many people are struggling financially is all in their mind, they don’t have the right frequency to attract wealth.
I’m sure you’ve heard this concept of law of attraction before.
There’s some truth to the fact that our mind can block us from reaching our potential, often times it shows up in very real ways when we self-sabotage ourselves.
I see it all the time within our local lead generation students, some do really well with the program while others struggle and it all has to do with you and what’s going on between your ears.
On the other hand, I believe its misguided to assume that with the right mindset you’ll be automatically rich.
No I’ve found that it doesn’t quite work that way either.
For me Dan Lok, a great business mentor, nails it with this video. You need Mindset & Skills.
Jesse Elder definitely has great mindset types of products.
But for me just as Dan Lok stated it wasn’t meditation or affirmation or frequency, that caused me to take massive action and change my life for good, becoming a self-employed entrepreneur at age 25.
It was all about desperation.
Dan Lok was desperate to change things for the better because he saw his mom crying due to financial problems and he made a promise to himself that he was never going to see that look on his mother’s face ever again. This desperation drove him to succeed in life.
I also had that desperation at age 24 after 3 years of working at a corporate job, I got a standard raise of 5% and after taxes it came out to be only $60 more on my monthly paycheck. Shit was rough, as I was only making $35K per year.
Now in 2018, I’m making $50K per month with an online lead generation business.
In this blog post, I chronicle my real life path to financial freedom and how much mindset stuff played a roll, and taking a look at Jesse Elder’s success and dissecting certain things that you can model so you too can begin making money online and live the life you desire.

My Experience with Mindset Products
I don’t fully buy into the notion that if you simply fix your thinking that you’ll begin to naturally attract wealth into your life.
I started getting into personal development and mindset material in 2011, in the beginning, I was jazzed up with the notion that I can achieve anything that I can imagine in my mind and so I started journaling my goals all the time, and I kept it up for years.
I was putting in so much effort pretending to the live the life even though my bank account was showing zero and I didn’t have the types of relationship I desired. I was trying my best to fake it till you make it.
Then over time maybe a course of 2-3 years, the initial zest I had for this new age methods waned and I pretty much gave up completely on the “think and grow rich” principle.
I was simply not seeing the results.
In fact, IMO I wasted way too much time working on my mindset. Which doesn’t work.
Law of Attraction Didn’t Work, I Needed to Go Get Skills
After years of failing at being able to produce any tangible results in the real world with all the law of attraction, frequency, mind over matter teachings.
I graduated from college in 2012, got a corporate 9 to 5 job.
And after 3 years there I was pretty much burnt out. I was not getting paid whole lot and the monotonous tasks were becoming unbearable.
Out of sheer desperation (not inspiration) I began researching online about how to make money and I stumbled upon this lead generation coaching program, which made the most sense to me.
I took a leap of faith, paid for the program and started learning a new skill.
A skill of online lead generation which I use to help small businesses get more customers.
That was the missing link.
A mentor that was going to show me step by step, a skill & how to build a scalable business with it.
Just 6 months later, I had developed an online income of $3000 per month and I was able to quit my 9 to 5 job.
I still remember walking into my boss’s office to put in my 2-week notice as if it was yesterday, easily one of the most exhilarating day of my life to date.
My life has never been the same since.
I’m now an online entrepreneur that makes multiple 6-figure income and I get to do whatever I want, whenever I want, with whoever I want.
I can say that I’m thinking on a whole different level than I used to before, but not because I did meditations and read affirmations over and over again, this time it felt like an authentic change because I actually put in the work to develop a skill this time.
And skills give you financial confidence.
Just like how a professional athlete gets paid top dollars for having world-class skills, and that gives them confidence in all areas of life.
Entrepreneurship is like the same exact thing.
You gotta actually go out there, take massive action, get a mentor and learn some skills.
Your income is a direct reflection of how much value you’re able to bring to the marketplace.
This value is determined by your skills.
Why Investing In Your High-Income Skills Is Your #1 Priority If You Wanna Get Rich
So many people get stuck worrying about themselves.
“Oh I need to find my passion and life purpose first, before I start any business”
“That business opportunity sounds good, but I don’t think I have the passion for it”
I used to think this way too, but thankfully my mentor Dan snapped me out of this type of faulty thinking that keeps many people broke and incapable.
Instead of worrying about your passions all the time, you need to begin shifting your focus on other people and how can you serve them.
What skills do I need to develop to bring value to other people?
You have to begin modeling after success.
If you want more money in your life, you need to study what other financially successful people are doing.
For example, Jesse Elder is making his money teaching about mindset principles.
He’s not just sitting there meditating and making money, no at the heart of how he’s able to generate revenue, is he’s got legit skills.
- Public Speaking
- Being able to influence people with a video to get them to join his group, or buy products from him (sales skills)
- developing coherent courses based on what he has learned working as a life a coach and building his own business
- Facebook ads skills
- Copywriting skills
- Online marketing skills – funnels, webinars, email marketing
- Website building
- Personal Branding
What you’ll notice about successful online entrepreneurs is that they have solid A+ Marketing skills.
Actually, marketing is the #1 important skill for any entrepreneurs though.
Jesse Elder’s Mentor Academy courses actually give you the framework and blueprint to how he was able to develop his $30K per month coaching business.
But not everyone’s in the position to become a coach.
I’m sure Jesse’s mindset programs would help some people that may have mental blocks about money.
I think we all do to some degree.
But I feel its misguided to think that if you’re someone with zero skills, that doing mindset practices is gonna make you wealthy. Because I’ve been there done it myself and didn’t see any tangible results for years.
Until I got desperate and actively pursued learning actual skills to make money. Check out another video by Dan Lok, where he explains this so clearly. The importance of first developing high-income skills if you want to get financially successful.
If I could do things over again, I would have spent much less time on working on my mindset and more time trying to find a mentor that was gonna show me the skills to make money online.
Jesse Elder does have a solid course on creating your own coaching program which is great but what if you don’t have any skills to be coaching other people?
I personally feel a coach needs at least several years mastering their craft for themselves before looking to jump into the coaching industry.
Well, most people are broke or not making any money online because they have no skills to do so.
The last thing they oght to be doing is trying to become a coach.
This is why I recommend taking up a course like lead generation/local marketing to learn a real skill that’ll allow you to build your first 6 figure online business first, so that you can free yourself from the shackles of a job. Then you can use all that free time to either continue to build online businesses or pursue your passions whatever that may be.
Instead of focusing your passions to be a money maker for you, focus on getting that money first, then the skills you gain a long the way to making that first $10K per month income is gonna serve you a lifetime, & it’ll fuel your passions and give you the freedom to live free.
Speaking from experience, this lead generation coaching program is what did it for me. Teaches you high-income skills & a system to build a scalable business with it.
