Giving peace a chance
Hello my friend:
Today our newest Client Support Specialist, Melanie, is
bringing her husband into the office to meet everyone.
Because he wasn't able to make our company-wide Christmas
He was in Afghanistan.
Two more of OUR finest, Meghan and Wenona have brothers
who are in the armed forces. Meghan's brother recently
came home from Iraq, and Wenona's brother is still there.
We pray every day for his safe return.
The things they've seen...
It reminds me again why I don't spend a lot of time
watching or reading the news. If people aren't shooting,
stabbing or beating each other, they're in some way
backstabbing in efforts to sabotage the reputations and
opportunities of others.
All's fair, ya know.
Now I see that Israel is striking back heavy against
Palestine, and the talking heads on CNN are reporting on
this never-ending circle of revenge attacks.
In one round-robin discussion, one bobble head finally
said something that cut right through to the core of it.
He quoted a leader of Hamas who said that peace is not
possible because Isreal is an affront to God, and they must
Well. That about sums it all up, doesn't it?
Peace? Not in 100 lifetimes.
It can only end badly for everyone involved.
But this is no different than what goes on here and
everywhere every day. It's just not as bloody.
When disputes are created and continued because one side
cannot see or appreciate the other person's side (point of
view)... when you see someone else as wrong, and you
believe that they must suffer greatly in some way for their
views or actions, then the only thing that can happen is
hatred, fighting, injury, revenge, war.
And that always ends badly.
Every day, hundreds and thousands of times in every city,
town and burg around the world are examples of anger and
rage out of control, taken to unnecessary levels.
Granted, there are indeed, situations where anger and even
rage are appropriate and understandable.
But often, in a typical day, it's not.
Built from lack of patience, unrealistic expectations,
frustration builds quickly and... instantly, decisions are
made that show the worst side of a person.
We developed the thought and behavior modification
program, 'Anger Management Now!'
- http://www.thinkrightnow.com/a/anger.asp in 2007
response to hundreds of requests.
It reminds me of beauty pageants where contestants
routinely say that during their "reign," they want to help
Well, that is what I want, too.
Someone asked me today if people will ever stop blowing
each other up in wars and gang fights, etc.
My answer was no, it won't... but that we can help to
reduce it one person at a time on an individual level. And
like the ripple effect of a single butterfly's wings
flapping, the collective effect will be tremendous over time.
'Anger Management Now!' like all TRN programs, is built on
quickly changing your moment by moment thoughts, core
beliefs and attitudes using the same kind of inner self
talk each of us has going on in our heads all our waking
and many of our sleeping hours... because when you change
the discussion going on in your head, you can change your
emotions and your behaviors with little or no effort at all.
I've talked with people who have had such an addiction to
anger patterns that their entire lives were basically
defined by their anger.
All gone or greatly diminished in a few weeks or months
using Anger Management Now.
Highly effective. Because through Lozanov's suggestopedic
accelerated learning structure, it alters the ongoing
conversation in your mind. This allows people to change
even life-long belief systems and attitude patterns
remarkably fast... even ones that not long before they'd
"get up and fight for."
Suddenly not important to them.
Some of the many areas of concentration in Anger
Management Now are:
- Expressing dissatisfaction without becoming angry
- No more trying to change the unchangeable
- Being sensitive to the feelings of others
- Respecting cultural and religious differences of other
- Settling disputes without even raising your voice
- Seeing all your challenges as within your capabilities
- Disagreeing without becoming angry
- Always staying in control of your emotions
- Forgiving yourself and others for mistakes
- Channeling anger in positive and constructive ways
- Quickly letting go of negative, harmful emotions
Here is a letter from Heather telling of her experiences
with 'Anger Management Now!'
I originally ordered this program for my husband Mark, but
would like to tell you my story.
I have been using your products for almost 2 years now and
own quite a few on the list. This program (Anger Management
has been the root core program that has helped me the most.
I have had anger issues since I was a child-or for as long
as I can remember. I was always a people pleaser who felt
like I needed to be the perfect person. I felt I was not
allowed to get angry. So, as a child I would hit and throw
things out of immaturity as well as not knowing any other
healthy way to let my feelings out.
As an adult I stopped the hitting and throwing but still
felt such rage inside of me when someone or something
didn't go the way I thought it was supposed to.
I also developed Panic attacks and anxiety (for which I also
have the Think Right Now programs) because of my unresolved
I started listening to the "Anger Management Now"
- http://www.thinkrightnow.com/a/anger.asp program
everyday on my headphones and I cannot describe how many
positive changes I have seen in myself.
I now feel in control of my emotions and things don't seem
so bad anymore. Whenever I feel anger creeping in I pop in
the CDs and literally within minutes my mood has changed
and is more even.
I feel less anxiety and panic because I am not holding in
all the angry emotions I once did. I also listen to your
CD's every single night and I would not miss one day!
I cannot believe how much of a better person I have become
due to your products. They are simple yet ingenious! You
really have filled a need that the world has been lacking
for so long.
I was once house bound with fear and anger and now I own a
successful business. I even enjoy being with others again
(which I haven't for so long). It has also helped me in
raising my children because my patience level is where it
needs to be in order to be an effective parent. The anger
has left and I am a much better person because of it!
Thanks for all that you do, Mike!
Your friend you've never met!
Heather V, IN
MB: Well, I think the "never met" part will have to change
soon, Heather. When you can quickly let go of negative
emotions, it's much harder to get mad about anything. So
clear thinking and solutions can come to you fast. Less
So that is part of our mission here at Think Right Now...
less anger one person at a time. And since everyone's
circle of influence is so great, those "one persons" will
have a much more positive impact on their world and
ultimately, the whole world, in the years and decades to
Give peace a chance.
PS: Remember, 'Releasing Fear Of Failure Now'
is 30% off right now. But the price is going back up in
the next couple days. My advice... get it now and save.
