it’s the biggest LIE in business… (photo plus $50 coupon inside)
A couple of weeks ago my older son and I went to the Gov’t Mule concert here in Tampa. We saw them five years ago and had a blast, and their recent show was no different.
After the show, we went out back behind the club where the band was playing, to meet with the band members. Warren Haynes, the lead guitarist, singer, and primary songwriter for Mule, was out back signing autographs and talking with his fans.
Here’s a photo of Warren signing my poster and answering a question I had about one of his guitars:
Warren Haynes is not only an outstanding songwriter and guitarist, but he’s incredibly successful. He’s got a tremendous work ethic and plays in two other very well-known bands besides Mule, plus he has a successful career as a solo musician. In fact, he’s probably the hardest working man in rock and roll, today.
Nevertheless, in spite of having a crazy schedule with huge demands on his time, Warren’s a warm and sincere person. He actually sits and speaks with anyone who wants to talk with him, and he engages his fans with back and forth dialog. His heart is as big as his catalog of songs, and then some.
I thought about how Warren shatters the myth about success that many people incorrectly have. They mistakenly believe that successful people achieved their success by being rude, or by stepping on others.
And in fact, these were the messages I received when I was younger. Sadly, buying into them at a young age made it very difficult for me to succeed, early on. In fact, it caused me to sabotage my success more often than not, because I had all these undeserving feelings going on inside of me at the time.
It wasn’t until I realized a couple of cold, hard facts about my thinking, that I was able to sort of “break free.” I realized:
One, the people who told me these things, in fact, knew as much about success as I know about the history of the Balkan war. Lesson learned: if you’re going to listen to someone about something, make sure they have some relevant knowledge and experience about whatever it is they’re talking about.
Uninformed opinions are worthless. But wisdom, on the other hand… is priceless.
Broke people who don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of, can’t advise you about success or money, any more than a man can tell you what it feels like to deliver a baby.
And two, I began seeking out successful people and I started interacting with them, and learning their own personal stories. And you know what? Lots of the people I started meeting, didn’t have a story too different from mine!
They all started out in one place, and through incredibly hard work, planning and learning from other smart people… they ultimately got to where they were.
As I say inside “How To Make Maximum Money With Minimum Customers,” – “who you were yesterday, has nothing to do with who you are today… or who you’re going to be tomorrow — unless… you choose it to.”
The truth is, most people who are financially successful are just like Warren Haynes — very generous and sincere. And the real reason “money comes to money” is because people who already have money are generally willing to consistently work a hell of a lot harder for it.
Success (and failure) isn’t some kind of pre-ordained “karma.” You become a money magnet when you attract lots of qualified leads and provide good value, period.
Money usually follows hard work, clever strategy, and well thought out plans that focus on matching an existing marketplace to an existing product or service.
Anyway, being around Warren Haynes got me thinking about all this. And since last month marked 11 years I’ve been working for myself, I figured timing was right for me to give you a great deal on one of my “personal stories of success” programs, so here’s the scoop:
If you’ve already ordered my new book, “How To Make Maximum Money With Minimum Customers,” or if you order it between now and this Friday, you’ll also get $50 off my “How To Make Your Dreams Come True” program.
This program shares my story about how I got involved in direct response marketing… how I essentially leveraged one single sales letter I wrote and turned it into a small fortune… and it also gives you a step-by-step copywriting critique and breakdown of the actual 40-page sales letter, itself. There’s also a bonus 48-minute CD included, called “Excuse Busters,” which shatters the myths about virtually any excuse you can ever come up with, as a reason for you not doing something. And believe me, before I got my act together, I used all of ’em.
This program regularly sells for $127 so you’re getting it at almost half price.
And here’s how to take advantage of this offer.
If you’ve already ordered my book, then go to the “How To Make Your Dreams Come True” page and put it inside the shopping cart. Once you get to the actual cart, enter “dreams50” (without the quotes) in the Special Code box in the upper right-hand corner, and you’ll save $50 off this program.
If you haven’t ordered my book yet, then go to the “How To Make Maximum Money With Minimum Customers” page and put it inside the shopping cart. Next, follow the procedures for Step One as I just mentioned, and you’re good to go.
If you want to order by phone, contact my office at 813-333-2463.
All orders will ship out via priority mail, immediately.
And in any case, remember that success isn’t something other people achieve because of some kind of “pre-ordained destiny.” It’s a destiny YOU get to create, once you’re ready to seriously commit to it, and… once you finally believe you deserve it.
