I was scared out of my mind
Hello my friend:
I love to hear people talk about New Year's resolutions.
I used to get excited for them as they told me what they
would always do from now on, or never do again.
Now I just raise my eyebrows. Because goals are nice.
But achieving something that is in direct opposition to a
lifetime of habits requires more than seeing January 1st on
the calendar. It requires a completely new mind.
You see, like many teenagers since the dawn of time, when
I was 18, I dreamed of fortune, of travel, of making it big
in so many ways. It was going to be a piece of cake
because I had dreams and goals.
And then reality set in...
It was not going to be easy. I was denied my dreams
constantly. Making it in this world was tough, I
concluded. So I changed my goals... to survival. Here's
The summer after graduation, I tried selling Kirby vacuum
cleaners. I sold one... to my aunt and uncle. Whenever I
got in front of someone, all I could think about what
they were thinking of me. Was I saying the right thing?
Did they like me? I could not imagine anyone would invest
that much money to keep their carpets clean. I was so
scared, I often could not speak.
I went to college after that summer. I flunked out.
Studying and sitting in the library seemed too difficult.
I was afraid that if I spent all that time with my nose
buried in books, I'd miss out on the fun stuff that seemed
to be going on all around me.
I did get a degree, but took a $5.00/hr job in a sign shop
after graduating. I was afraid of going after better
paying jobs, so I took a job that looked easy... and got
fired about a year later. Bosses scared me. Daily
responsibility scared me. All I knew was that they were
looking at everything I did, looking for fault... and they
found a lot of them in my work. I was constantly worried
about how I was doing. It was too much pressure.
So I tried painting houses. But I had to "sell" home
owners on my house painting services. That did not work.
All I thought about when talking with a home owner was how
scared I was... I only got two jobs before I hung up my
brushes for good.
Direct sales came next. Same ole...
100% commission. Zero income. If it weren't for the
support of friends, I would have starved. And as it was,
not being able to pay them rent, I had to move into my van.
I was 24 years old and I had never done anything well. I
was afraid of everything, it seemed. Heck, I was even
scared of women who came on to ME!
I didn't learn until many years later that a lot of people
experience life like this. Afraid. Depressed. With no
feelings of hope of ever being any different, acting any
different, of having a better life.
I'd probably be dead now if I hadn't found the book Super
Learning and started learning about Lozanov's accelerated
learning method, Suggestopedia.
I wondered what would happen if I used the same technique
Lozanov was using to teach people thousands of foreign
phrases and math problems to learn and insert the thought
processes of the top salespeople and business people into
my mind and memory.
They seemed fearless. Failure was just something those
people move beyond on the way to achieving their dreams.
In magazine interviews and in their books and speeches,
you could tell there was no fear, just big goals,
confidence, and expectation of success at everything they
Well, as you know, that's what I did. And it worked.
From living in a van, and scared to even ask someone to
let me paint their home for ridiculously low prices, I
became the most successful sales executive in 4 completely
different industries. I've sold many millions of dollars
in products all around the world.
Because I programmed my mind to eliminate fear.
Just to be great at selling in one industry, it takes
total commitment and often years of learning and practice.
So imagine doing it in four!
Now, don't misunderstand. I'm not saying that I'm the
greatest. In the last 21 years, I have achieved more than
I ever dreamed, but it's not because I'm so smart...
It's the technology.
It's because I got and continue to get the training that
relatively few people get.
The simple format used to reprogram the mind to eliminate
the fear of failing works for everyone because everyone's
brain works the same way. Everyone's brain accesses
memories essentially the same way. We all use our brains
to imagine, remember, visualize, hear, smell, taste, and
That is why it works for everyone that uses it.
The problem with most people is not that they don't have
the ability to get whatever they want... it's that very few
people ever get the kind of coaching, teaching,
encouragement, pushing, inspiration, or approval that links
up in our minds that they can do remarkable things.
So... they live their lives trying not to look stupid.
Now, I'm not trying to push the desire for fame on anyone,
but think about the people you love on TV or in movies,
sports heroes, major business successes.
If they were afraid of looking stupid, afraid of being
criticized, afraid of losing what they now have, they would
not be where they are now. You would never have heard of
them. They'd be like everyone else. Afraid to risk.
Not long ago, we researched and developed an Accelerated
Success Conditioning Program we call Releasing Fear Of
If you have not yet, I invite you to learn about it.
Many people who use our other Think Right Now programs
have gained confidence and reduced fear with those other
TRN programs. But Releasing Fear Of Failure Now! is
Because it focuses entirely on wiping out fear of
failure... the single biggest reason for people living way
below their potential.
No one wants to be embarrassed, to look foolish, to be
criticized. But 99.8% of the world's population are
controlled by the fear of these things to such an extent
that they will not move beyond some pretty small comfort
So you stay small.
Our research tells us that this is a biggie...
Fear of the implications of failing (or not measuring up
to some unrealistic image of what being successful is
supposed to be) is one of the biggest, if not THE biggest
killer of success, achievement and joy in every area of life.
