The First Dancer - How to be the first among equals and attract unlimited opportunities
Valu Ventures Inc.
March 17, 2016
How is it that some people wait an entire life to have the right opportunities, while others create opportunities for success out of thin air? What can we do today to create opportunities for success?

These are the questions everyone ponders over but is not able to get satisfying answers to.

The First Dancer is directed to the common person--too busy to notice the abundance that engulfs him or her. Paradoxically, the first dancer is not an angelic enlightened soul, basking in the sun of timeless ancient wisdom. He is you, and he is me. He is each one of us. He is the common person negligent of the music that encapsulates his senses, too embarrassed to dance to the tune of abundance, lest he be called out.

The First Dancer will help you:

1. Develop the success mindset--a mental framework necessary to achieve success in life
2. Reinvent yourself to attract unlimited opportunities
3. Create a bias for action to become financially successful
4. Go above and beyond success to achieve excellence; to rise above the pursuit of happiness and attain contentment
