Earlier today I got up and checked a few emails.
As my eyes are still very sensitive to sunlight – or any
light, for that matter – I only go through a few and let
Carol handle the rest.
Well, today I got an update on how we’re doing this
month. To say I was delighted would be an understate-
I’ve been flat on my back for a good part of this month.
I’ve written and done next to nothing – and the business
continues to flourish.
Last week, a number of people wrote to tell me that the
business I am in has hit the “true wealth” stage.
In case you think these people were only talking about
finances, think again. Here’s what they meant:
1. While in Finland I suffered a detached retina. A simple
phone call to George Thurber, M.D. – a member of my
MasterMind, helped line up the finest surgeon in NYC.
2. I immediately booked first class tickets back to the U.S.
for myself and Eddie Baran, who was watching out for me.
I paid for both tickets.
3. We arrived in NYC and immediately went by Lincoln town
car to Dr. Fine’s office at Columbia Hospital. It was nearly
7 PM when we arrived. He was there, alone with another
surgeon, waiting for me. No one else was in the clinic.
4. Baseed on what Dr. Thurber relayed to Dr. Fine I was
already scheduled for surgery on Saturday at 10 a.m. After
a brief exam it turned out I DID need the surgery, and fast.
5. Ed and I left the clinic and I booked two hotel rooms, right
on Times Square. The price of the rooms did not figure into
my thinking – nor did I worry about missing work.
6. On Saturday, once again, I was the only person in the clinic.
And I was the only person scheduled for surgery.
7. On Sunday I returned to have my patch removed and to be
examined. Again, I was the only patient.
8. Meanwhile, thousands of people throughout the world sent
their heartfelt requests for a successful surgery and speedy
Everything listed above BEGAN and happened because of the
business I have on the Internet. Dr. Thurber, for example, came
to me thru the Internet – has attended my seminars and is a
member of my MasterMind. He is also a very accomplished Lasik
surgeon in Mississippi who has done over 4000 operations without
a single person losing a line of vision.
Since this happened I’ve often thought about the fact that a good
many people would not have been given the care and treatment I
have been given; nor could they afford it. If they were staying in a
$500 per night room on Times Square in NYC, trying to recover
from major eye surgery, chances are excellent that they’d be
worrying about moohlah while also trying to heal.
It’s very hard to heal when you’re lying around in fear about lost
work, missed opportunities, bills not being paid, and so on.
I’m fortunate to be in the position I am in and believe me, I’m
extraordinarily grateful. At the same time there is a reason I’m
in the financial situation I am in and it has more to do with being
willing to take a risk, being willing to learn something new, being
willing to be laughed at and spoofed, being willing to set aside FEAR
and march toward what I truly desire – than anything else.
Yesterday Carol forwarded me an email from a man who attended
my seminar last October and is coming back this year. Here’s what
he had to say:
“I’ve sat down a couple of times today to send you an email and
stopped shortbecause I didn’t want to bug you, however,
something is compelling me to share this with you. It took
me totally by surprise.
I had an interesting yet highly unusual conversation with my
wife last night that I will briefly summarize. We were out on
the porch just taking in nature & relaxing and started to
compare our upcoming schedules. I mentioned the dates of
the October conference to her and she said “that’s great, I’m
aware of how much you’ve been looking forward to that
seminar and at least this year I will know much better what
I asked her to explain.
She told me that she had never mentioned it before but when
I returned from last year’s show I was “a completely different
I asked her how so and she said that I was still the same loving
husband and father, still the great provider, and still a silly
knucklehead kid, but I was doing everything in my life at a whole
new intensity and on a whole different level.
In amazement I asked her why she had not shared this with
me before and she said that she was SCARED. She said that
she had never seen anyone change so much in such a short
period of time and that initially she was wondering if I had
done the right thing by attending. But when she got to know
the “new me” and she caught on to the new vibration level
the fear she felt went away. She also said the new vibration
level is one of the most fun and exciting feelings that she
has ever experienced.
Amazing, I knew the event had changed me on the inside,
but I sure didn’t realize that it was so obvious from the
outside. Maybe Matthew needs a warning pamphlet for
spouses and family members of the attendees. Heh heh.”
See you in October,
South Bend, IN
What Steve is referring to in terms of “vibration” should not
be overlooked. Raising your level of vibration is fundamental
to your upward and onward success. You cannot achieve
goals further up the ladder without also going up the same
Those who attend my seminars immediately sense a change
in the energy of the room as soon as I enter. And this change
continues to grow and grow all week long as I speak and pour
my heart and soul into what it takes to become successful on
the Internet – and in life.
By simply listening to an audio or watching a video clip of me
speaking, those who are open to change and growth will note
their batteries being charged. Perhaps you will expereince
something stirring inside you as well when you go watch the
clip we have up at http://www.knockoutmarketing.com
This seminar will be filled to capacity very soon. Make sure
you don’t miss out.

P.S. This seminar will not repeat. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event.
It’s not everyday that you can bring in the celebrity speakers I have
selected. And it’s not everyday that you can say, “The Zen Master of
the Internet changed my life.” You will say this if and when you attend
my seminar in October.
