The last night I was in Shanghai, just before returning
to the U.S., I went for a foot massage with my brother-
We had just eaten at a Lebanese restaurant a few doors
down and were raving about the food to the others in
the room. Although all of them worked a mere three
doors away from this restaurant – NOT a single person
knew where it was. Nor had they heard about it.
My brother-in-law wondered how this could be. I
replied, “It’s real simple. None of them have any
interest in this type of food – so they never see it
or hear about it. It’s not part of their reality. But
IF they wanted to eat this type of food, they’d
discover the place right away.”
When I was a personal trainer I had a prominent set
of billboard sized-signs sitting right at a traffic light
– right next to my gym. On the sign I had the words:
“Come Train With Me.”
Over and over I had men and women enter my gym
AFTER they made the decision to finally get fit and
hire a personal trainer to help them.
I cannot begin to count how many of these people
told me, “You know, I live in the area. I drive this
way every single day. Yet I never saw your gym
or your signs until I set a goal to get in shape.”
Yet that is how your mind works. Your brain has
a goal seeking function and it tends to ignore
what isn’t relevant to the goals you have in life.
Ever buy a new car and noticed how it’s ‘everywhere’
AFTER you’ve bought it. It’s a pretty common experience.
So is thinking about someone – then having him or her
A couple days ago I sent you an email on “The Best Advice
A great many people actually thought I was thinking of them
whilst I wrote that email. They truly thought I was answering
one of their questions.
And I was – but it also happens to be true that the question I
was answering is so basic and fundamental to being a human
being that a LOT of people will think, “He’s talking to ME.”
Yes, I am talking to YOU – if you’re open to the message. If not,
I don’t even exist.
This is why it’s so important to have goals, why it’s important
to have a series of questions that direct you toward the people,
places and information that can help you achieve your goals.
Each day when you get up, think about what you want and keep
your mind off what you don’t want. Learn to obliterate your fears,
worries and doubts. It’s not hard to do if you’ll get around those
who are doing it.
Last night I sat with a young man who wants to make a career change.
It involves moving from one area of the country to the other. I believe
the move will help catapult him to the next level of success. But all
he sees are the potential negatives, the things he fears.
He asked me how he could get rid of his fears. I spent less than five
minutes showing him what to do and his face went from uptight
and stressed out to relaxed, calm and confident. What I taught him
was simple and easy to do – yet he had never heard of it before and
I doubt anyone else has either because I made up the technique.
At any rate, this man is immensely talented. He can walk through walls
if he makes up his mind to do so. There is nothing and no one standing
in his way. Yet before last night he was holding himself back.
Because he was afraid.
With his fears obliterated, though, he is truly a different person. He
walks different, talks different, looks different. He even breathes a
completely different way.
He will carry something special into all he does and others will feel
it. When he’s free from fear he’ll be in a Zero Resistance Mindset and
this is the sort of mindset that attracts success.
Fear on the other hand repels success. Fear repels career moves for
the better. It repels businesss and cash. And the key to turning this
around is NOT learning the latest whiz bang marketing or business
technique. All knowledge helps – including knowing how to market
yourself – but the fact remains that you will avoid promoting yourself
and doing whatever it takes even if you KNOW what to do – IF you
are living in a resistant or repellant mode.
You owe it to yourself to learn how to attract more and resist less.
P.S. At my Zero Resistance Internet Marketing seminar I’m going to
show you how to eliminate all the things you do that repel and
create resistance. You’re going to learn the mindset and the
mechanics of what creates a winner. Come be a part of this
