Why You Should NEVER Watch Games You Bet On!

A couple years ago, when Zen was giving me the details of the Zen Money Method for the very first time, he taught me an important lesson. I had been following the system for a couple weeks, I was really getting the hang of it  and everything seemed to be going smoothly – there was only one problem…

I was getting too involved with the games I had live bets on and, as a result, it was consuming me.

Even though I was winning consistently and following the method, I wasn’t following the first principle we have with the method – LETTING GO and DETACHING YOURSELF FROM THE OUTCOME. When Zen found out that I had been religiously following all the games I was betting on, he gave me a lesson I’ll never forget. Zen told me that the only way to truly allow abundance into your life and make money easily is to let go of your desire for wealth and trust that the Universe will provide it  for you in time. He said that I shouldn’t watch the games I’m betting on because I am a “Zen Money Millionaire” not a “Sports Enthusiast”. He then informed me to continue with the method but not watch any of the games I was betting on and, instead, take the time to relax, lay back and enjoy my life – doing anything that brings me joy.

I spent the next 6 days shifting my focus from watching every minute of every game to taking it easy and relaxing on the couch.  I went for walks in the park, I ate ice cream, I watched movies, I went on a couple dates and I finally got around to doing some spring cleaning. The funny part about it was that even though I had live bets going, I wasn’t in the same mind state as before. I wasn’t stressed out anymore, I wasn’t constantly wondering what the score was, I wasn’t thinking all the time.  I was truly at peace and it got to a point where it really didn’t matter what happened in the game  – I honestly didn’t care.

I was just about to go grab a nice heaping cup of hot chocolate at the Starbucks down the street when Zen gave me a call out of the blue. He let me know that we just won the latest bet (see Zen Money HandBook for a more in-depth understanding of what this means) and that I just made $400. I was sitting there appreciating the good news and that’s when it hit me – I had let go this whole time, I wasn’t striving and trying hard to do anything, instead I just let go and waited for the money to find me. This is the way life should be – Minimal Effort, Maximum Results and Constant Enjoyment – and that’s exactly what the Zen Money Method has given me.

Since this huge breakthrough for me, I haven’t been watching any of the games I bet on. Now I just check my e-mail or the forum for the latest Zen Money picks, set up my bets and then go on doing whatever it is that I please. It usually surprises me when I log in to my account and see a huge pile of winnings just waiting there for me but I’m getting used to it. You can too, just let Zen know that you’d like to be a member by e-mailing him at zenmoneyadmin@gmail.com or Sign Up here.
