| Dear Mike,
I have used the Think Right Now, I Love Exercising program for two years now. When I first started listening to the tape, I listened every day. I played the tape in my car on the way to work, and whenever I was in the car. I stopped listening to the radio. Each day, the soft voice of the speaker encouraged me to want to exercise.
I exercise at least four times a week, and sometimes five. When I find my tape most effective is when I have come off of vacation or some other activity that has gotten me out of alignment with my normal exercise habits. When the weather changes too, I sometimes get out of the "groove" of being committed. When I find myself drifting into this sedentary state of mind, I pop my cassette into my car tape deck and within a week, I am back to exercising and enjoying it.
I have found that for me, exercising may be a "job" for the rest of my life. I enjoy the benefits it provides but it is still work for me. By listening to my "Think Right Now" program, I get encouraged, I forgive myself, and I can always start over. The warm, convincing voice of the audio speaker helps me get rebuilt spiritually. I appreciate someone encouraging me to forget my past, forgive myself, and start over fresh. And the most exciting thing about this is, "she is always there for me".
Thank you Mike!
May God bless you and your staff,
I just want to add my praise of Think Right Now to the mountains of it I know you've already received. Before I ordered the "I Love Exercising Now" program I was having real trouble fitting exercise into my life. This was becoming increasingly frustrating as about four years ago I used to work out four times a week without fail. At that time I made great fitness and weight loss strides. However, due to job changes and moving house I was no longer near enough to a gym to fit it easily into the day. Although I tried to incorporate a brisk 30 min walk into each day it just never felt like a proper workout. I knew the only workable option this time was to get up an hour earlier each morning and workout to a Tae-Bo video. But I could never persuade myself to do this.
I started to listening to the "I Love Exercising Now" program and within two weeks and without warning I found myself getting up one Monday morning an hour earlier than usual with the sole purpose of doing a 50 minute workout. Since then I've been working out every second morning including weekends.
The many benefits of this routine far outweigh forgoing the extra hour in bed. My energy levels have greatly increased (for some reason I'm much more aware of this now than when I was doing 8 minute miles on the treadmill four years ago)
I've noticed that disruptions to my exercise routine no longer put me off my stride. If something happens to prevent me working out on my usual days I easily transfer the workout to other days. In the past once something upset my four times a week schedule I would use this as an excuse not to workout for the rest of that week. It's now coming up to 12 weeks since I started with the new routine and I haven't yet missed a beat. I'm still working out early mornings, getting fitter and feeling great!
Thank you Mike,

I've been listening to your programs, "Eating For Excellent Health Now", "I Love Exercising Now" and "Setting and Achieving Goals Now".
It is amazing what has happened to me and I feel it can only be directly attributed to your programs. The first dramatic change happened at the end of September, which was totally out of character for me. I saw an ad in the newspaper about a 5K race. I never considered running in a race like this since I thought they were for others. For some reason out of the clear blue sky, I wanted to run in this race even though I had never run before. I wanted to try. I talked to my son about it and he said that he would run with me.
I need to explain at this point that my weight was over 260 pounds and all my hobbies were sedentary. I was telling everyone else around me that they could do anything they wanted to do but I found that I was telling myself that I couldn't do anything.
The morning of the race I had visions that I would be carried off the field on a stretcher but I was determined to go forward anyway since I wanted to start living my life and be healthy. My son, Daniel ran beside me every step of the way. I felt better at the end of the race than at the beginning. I kept trying to run as much as possible.
I'll recap some of the highlights that have happened since this race because it's been amazing!
I have run in four 5K races so far coming in last place in three of them. Even though I have come in last, I feel like a winner. The last race that I have run in, I was able to run most of the way.
I have walked in 6 Volkswalks during this time, which is a brand new activity for me. All these Volkswalks were 10K. I started a walking club here in Alsea and purchased blue ribbons. A blue ribbon is handed out to anyone who finishes 30 miles.
My New Year's resolution was to finish the Portland Marathon this October 5th. My daughter has agreed to walk and run in this marathon with me. My son in Seattle has agreed to run this marathon too. In fact, for Christmas to encourage my efforts, my two sons gave me running shoes, a watch that calculates time and distance, and a book on training for a marathon. I joined Fitness Over 50 in January and have been attending consistently.
My life has changed. I was worried about my health when I ordered your tapes. I kept telling myself that I couldn't do anything or accomplish my goals, which is strange since I didn't see other people not being able to accomplish their goals. I'm a smart person and have the capacity to do amazing things but I got in a rut where I just didn't feel I could change my life. I know that your programs have made a big difference in my life and I know these programs would make a big difference in the lives of so many people who also feel they can't accomplish their goals. I've been telling others for years that everyone, unless brain damaged, has unlimited potential and can accomplish any goal they want to work for.
I'm grateful to Heavenly Father that I found your programs because these tapes have helped me.

Order I Love Exercising Now!
When I first saw the title, "I Love Exercising" under your list of programs, I laughed.
"Yeah right," I thought. I was never a "natural" exerciser. I felt cheated because I never experienced the endorphin rush or exercise high people always talk about. Exercising was just something that hurt and took a lot of time and was less interesting than just about anything on the planet. I bought the program and began using it.
I now think nothing of exercising several times a week. Now I have a habit of getting myself moving first thing in the morning when my brain isn't engaged enough for writing novels or stories anyway.
My breakthrough: This morning I awoke to the rooster calling. The first thought I had was that after I took care of the animals and had a protein shake, I would get on the rebounder, and then do a thigh workout and a little belly dancing. And I was doing it willingly. Before, if I didn't find something more interesting to distract me, I might have forced myself to do something, but without any enthusiasm. Now I am glad to say that I feel good when I exercise. Starting the day with movement makes me feel like I've given my self a massage from the inside. I feel like I've cleaned out any internal junk. I'm energetic and ready for the day.
When I realized that my first thought was about what exercise I wanted to start my day with, it brought a tear to my eye. I never imagined it would be possible for me to actually look forward to exercise.
Thank you for the wonderful Think Right Now programs.

I hit rock bottom when I looked into the mirror and saw this 27 year old with poor physical conditioning, excessive body fat, and a terrible self image. It was so bad that I found myself withdrawing from any event where you had to take your shirt off or required physical activity. It was almost like a snowball, the more out of shape I got, the less I wanted to do sports for fear of ridicule and embarrassment and the worse I felt. I tried to take the first few steps by playing basketball with a friend but that just made me feel worse about my health. I was out of breath, slow, and breaking a sweat in the first 2 minutes of play. I was so disappointed in myself that I realized that just getting into the gym or just getting out of the house would not help the underlying problem. My underlying problem was motivation.
I was not convinced deep down inside that I would be able to pull myself out of this rut-- a rut which had lasted since 1998 when I graduated from college with an attractive body and good physical conditioning. After entering the work force, I began drinking beer after work with colleagues, flying on business and eating at all the best restaurants on the company's dime. I was in hotel after hotel for 2 weeks at a time and found no time, energy, or desire to exercise. 8 years later, I was looking at myself and seeing the wear and tear that this busy life had had on my youthfulness and began to think about how this would affect me 10-20-30-40 years from now.
I was already familiar with nutrition and exercise routines; in fact I was an expert! I had read so much about it that I could write a term paper from memory, but still I was overweight, I was not using my $40 a month gym membership and I was getting fatter each day. The reality check was going from a size 32 waist to a 40 waist in 4 years!!
I went to a clothing store in a nice mall in Miami to buy some jeans for the office. I began sweating as the store clerks told me that they only carry up to size 38. I was officially "fat." I decided that I was either going to feel sorry for myself or do something about it. For Christmas 2005, I bought a size 40 waist jean and the same style jean in size 36. I have hung the size 36 jean behind my bedroom door so that I can be reminded that this is where I need to go in the next few months. This motivated me somewhat but it was nothing compared to the unstoppable avalanche of motivation I received from Mike's "I Love Exercising Now!" program.
Since Christmas after using Mike's program, I have seen a revolution in my mind and spirit that is comparable to an avalanche or a wildfire. I began listening to the program as a way to "ease" into my sleep at night since the first track makes you very relaxed and then by the first few minutes of the second track I am sound asleep by the very soothing voice of the program. I found that previously I had a lot of negative self-talk that was affecting me such as "I am too slow, I am too fat to begin a program, I will do it later," etc.
Mike's program takes all those negative self-talk phrases, squashes them like a bug, and gives me positive, motivational phrases that lift me up. Sometimes during the day, I find myself repeating those same positive phrases to myself and it gives me a sense of security that deep down inside I WILL exercise that day and that NOTHING will stop me. As a matter of fact, I have begun rejecting other pleasurable activities during the week such as watching TV and eating heavy dinners and now I choose exercise as the most pleasurable activity of all.
I know that it has only been a month, but only after beginning to exercise for one month, I am a tiger mentally and a baby tiger physically. In fact, I have felt more self confidence in my job, I am no longer scared to play basketball with friends, and I feel motivated to try new sports over the weekend such as kite surfing (something I would have never done last year!). Also since my self esteem has gone up significantly, I have found more love and more energy to give to my wonderful family. I no longer spend time on the couch during my Saturday mornings but I want to wake up early. I'm relaxed, energized, and ready to go out and try something new that day.
I know I was not dangerously obese to begin with, but I think that there are many people out there that are in the middle zone of "comfort fat" which can turn into something very dangerous if left un-attended. I was 5'10, 230lbs during my last doctor's visit and my
doctor told me I was "fine!" We are becoming more and more accepting of our fate and less aggressive in doing something about it!
The best investment I could make in achieving my new life was to buy "I Love Exercising NOW!" The body truly can achieve what the mind can conceive.
Mike: thank you, thank you, thank you.

Order I Love Exercising Now!
I am a 52 year old male and bought three programs. I have only actually started "I Love Exercising Now!" and I am definitely impressed with the results. I just lost 15 lbs on a diet, but on top of that I wanted to get back into shape and exercising is not something that I really enjoy doing. My girlfriend has been trying to get me to exercise (walk/run) with her for quite a while, but I just have not. I found that I started exercising pretty slowly, 1/2 hour a day walking and have slowly increased it now to 1 1 /2 hours combination of walking and running, plus doing calisthenics and body toning. I guess the thing that is really amazing is when I first started to notice that the program is working. I had been exercising for a few days and thought that I should take a break, but found that I could not skip a day of exercising. It was like brushing my teeth; I could not skip it. The program gives you the desire to get it done and do it. So far I'm impressed and looking forward to using the other programs in the future. Thank you very much!

A little over a month and a half ago, I bought "Eating For Excellent Health Now!" and "I Love Exercising Now!" and I began playing them daily, alternating the two programs, and after about two weeks of listening I started eating better and going for walks pretty much every other day. Since that time, about 3 weeks, I have lost 9 pounds, and I continue to eat healthier and find ways to add exercise to my day. Thank you!
I use the "I Love Exercising Now!" program. It took a couple of weeks to get going, but once it did it was pretty much unstoppable. It's an amazing product. Once that started to take hold and had results for me I ordered "Eating For Excellent Health Now" and "I Am Healed Now!" and both of those have had a very good impact in my life. I'm very, very happy to have found this line of products. Mike, thank you for making such a great difference in my life and I look forward to any new products that you might be turning out there.
I was a bit skeptical upon first getting the program to help with weight loss, but after relaxing and listening for a few times I began to see the benefit. I was able to institute more exercise into my life and that's been helping manage my weight better. I'm continuing to listen and to exercise.

Dear Mike & Co.
I started listening to your "I Love Exercising Now!" program about three weeks ago. Several years ago, I gained over 40 pounds. As I got heavier and heavier I got lazier and lazier. I had always been fairly active and now I was lying around doing nothing. I knew that I should be exercising, but I couldn't get myself off the couch. It just seemed too overwhelming.
I listen to "I Love Exercising Now!" while I'm getting ready to go to work (instead of the radio) and as I fall asleep at night I leave my CD player on repeat. I know that the messages are getting into my head, because sometime the people in my dreams are saying the phrases from the program.
About three days after I started listening to "I Love Exercising Now!" my work needed someone to walk to the store to get some supplies. I jumped up and said, "I'll go!" I couldn't believe it was me saying that, but I almost COULDN'T WAIT to get out and take a brisk walk.
Since then I have been walking almost daily. I have also started hiking in our local hills. I have more energy during the day and I'm sleeping better at night (I used to wake up two or three times and now I am sleeping right through!) I'm excited again about using my body, and I've actually started to like my body again. I look forward to doing things that I didn't have the energy to do before.
I even hold myself differently when I walk now. Two people at my office have said to me, "you look good, what are you doing?" This is in only three weeks! Just imagine the dynamo I'll be in three months!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't thank you enough for sharing this remarkable technology with us. Keep 'em coming!

I just wanted to tell you that I am having an incredible result from listening to your programs. I listened to "I Love Exercising Now!" 2 or 3 times. I am 66 years old and have never liked "exercise" and have never done any regularly. I have battled depression. About 10 days ago I emerged from an intense 9 month bout that created physical deterioration in various areas of my body. I did nothing for 9 months but sit or lay down on the couch and watch 15 hours a day of TV. I was paranoid and rarely went out. I showered once a week when my husband was off from work and could walk me down the very steep steps in our house. I talked to very few people, made no outgoing calls nor did I answer incoming calls. I wasn't eating or sleeping. Then a friend recommended your programs. In 2 or 3 nights of listening (I smiled the entire 1st hour when I heard the affirmations) I began exercising and I have gone from the biggest of couch potatoes to one who is creatively finding ways to integrate fun exercise into my life every day.
Thank you so much for the amazing genius that put this system together. Last night I put on "I Am Healed Now!" I feel healed already and feel blessed to have found you.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears. Well, you are the best teacher and I am eternally grateful to you.
Love and blessings being sent your way.

This stuff is absolutely LIFE CHANGING! Thanks for dedicating yourself to such a worthy endeavor!
I also have and listen to the Think Right Now audio programs and they have changed my life. The most noticeable change is that THIS has helped me (at long last) change my beliefs to where I NOW LOVE TO EXERCISE! The old "negatives" that always went with exercise are gone, for the most part!
Ending Depression and Anxiety are also great!
I have recommended this program to others without reservation!
Thank you mike, great idea! it is hard to find really good 60 tempo music. I play your "I love Exercising Now" program while driving to work. I remain calm through out my long night shift. It makes it easy to do affirmations at work when playing program is inappropriate!
This stuff is absolutely LIFE CHANGING! I know I do need to hear and read it again and again, in order for more of it fully "sink in"...

My story actually started last year when I had reached over 200lbs and my clothing size was up another notch. Going up and down the stairs here at work was exhausting, life was exhausting. I started bicycle rides which really let me know how out of shape I really was, but I was falling in love with the riding. In August I did my first 7 day, long distance ride, boy was that a learning experience.
During October I decided to get my act together, rode every day, invested in a Bow flex, changed my eating habits, by early this spring I was into a size 8, never been there in my life.
The busy season started at work less time to do my training so it slowly but surely fell by the wayside of my life. I continued doing my long rides, but less and less training as the months rolled by. After my riding vacation in August everything just stopped, no matter what I did I just could not seem to get myself motivated and back on track. Slowly but surely my weight started creeping up, when my size 10 jeans started getting tight I knew I was heading for trouble.
I could not get myself going, I had lots of time as we were into the slow winter part of the year at work, I was becoming really pissed at myself but even that didn't change anything, it was crazy. I knew what I needed to do, but it was like hitting a wall every time I set my mind to get things started again.
Then I followed a link to your Think Right Now site, I knew self-hypnosis work as I had used it many years ago to stop smoking. I figured what the heck, can't hurt might help and purchased "I Love Exercising Now.", also took advantage of the buy 3 get one free offer and got "Financial Abundance Now!, Setting and Achieving Goals, and Supreme Confidence Now!". I decided to start with the Exercising and the Confidence programs, felt they were a good combination. I listen them at night falling asleep and I would listen to them as I was cleaning rooms at work, also would hook up to them if I was resting in the afternoon. I listened every chance I had.
It will be 30 days tomorrow and I am reborn, my workout is back on track and I am feeling really good about a whole lot of things in my life. I have to tell you about one of the other happenings. When I started the tapes I was also in the midst of having to write the new budget for next year at work, I have never done anything like that before, it was getting me really up-tight. I kept putting it off day after day, then about a week into the tapes, with only 2 days left till the deadline for having it in, I sat down and just said I can do this, and I did. Mine was the first budget turned in at the main office; I was ahead of all the other departments. Not only that but I have now got a plan in place so that next year at budget time, mine will be done before they even ask for it. I am not even worried about it getting me crazy ever again. I feel like I can do just about anything and that feels good. Your programs helped change a lot more then my workout slump, and I am so grateful for the changes.
Thanks for your help in my life. Keep up this great work.

I am writing to share my experience with you about the "Instant Workout Power" (Inner Power series) and "I Love Exercising Now" (Think Right Now series) programs.
I began playing these programs in a disciplined way right about mid-August, in preparation for beginning a program of weight training in September. Results came quite fast. In fact, I became so motivated (surprising me tremendously, believe me) that I naturally began a swimming program as well almost right after the first couple of listening, almost two weeks before I was scheduled to begin weight training!
My history with exercise in the past has been erratic. Never have I been able to stick with a program for more than 1-2 weeks. Mostly, I would wind up giving in to the feelings of "dread" I would have after awhile, using excuses like "it would be OK to miss just one workout, that I wasn't up to the exertion today", etc., which would then of course expand to 2 or more missed workouts until I was no longer working out at all. Lots of self generated negative reinforcement here. Exercise, I felt, was "hard" and "unpleasant." This would result in feelings of guilt because I didn't have the resolve to stay with it when it was difficult and of course, my physical stamina and overall health suffered. But that changed after listening to these two programs.
First of all, my feelings about my workouts changed. I found myself quite naturally using the cue/trigger, smiling to myself and saying "It's time to workout". Instead of dreading my workouts, I began to look forward to them and actually was motivated enough to learn more about, plan out, and track my workouts. I bought and read a book about both swimming and weight training. I set up routines which were smart and where I monitored my progress on spreadsheets I custom designed for myself to measure my progress. My feelings went from dread about the "exertion" I was about to undergo to feelings of power and looking forward to the positive results I was about to experience. Instead of thinking "gee, I have only accomplished the first 3 of 12 exercises", I would transform this thought to something like "this is great, I have already finished the first 3 exercises and look forward to the rest, isn't that great?" So my focus shifted to the overall positive results I was experiencing and I found that I gave greater focus and effort to my exercises while I was actually doing them, thereby increasing their effectiveness.
What are my results?
I started off barely being able to swim 36 meters without stopping and could at a max swim 10 laps in a session and would have to stop, and that was using breast stroke. Now I swim crawl stroke (which takes more energy) and can go 3500 meters in a session, can swim 360 meters without stopping, and have cut the time it takes me to do this in half (although I am still not going to be breaking any speed records here). In weight lifting, I have just about tripled the amount of weight I can lift on each exercise and for the session as a whole. Also, looking in the mirror I can already see significant changes in my neck, shoulder, arms, chest and torso/stomach area (which has changed enough to allow me to buy pants 2 sizes smaller). Now, instead of dreading my workouts, I look forward to them and if I have to miss one because of something that comes up, I actually find myself thinking in advance of ways I can either make it up or find a way where I can just delay, not skip, a workout I had planned on. I have never done that before.
Since I workout in the mornings, after I got back from the gym, I would immediately listen to the full "I Love Exercising Now" affirmations while planning my day and reading the news, using headphones to limit distractions. I used the "Instant Workout Power" program right before bedtime, finding that this helped motivate me to get up right away and workout the next morning. I did this for 60 days straight and was so impressed with the results that I have since purchased several additional programs as well. Now, I play both programs perhaps once every two weeks, which strengthens the reinforcement while I continue to use the triggering cues both before and during my workouts.
At this time I am still working out on the same schedule, still making progress!
Throughout the years, I have had the opportunity to try many other motivation type programs. Some were not very effective, while some were pretty good. I don't think I have ever experienced more positive and more effective results than I have from your programs.

Order I Love Exercising Now!
I have been a "chocoholic" for as long as I can remember and a carbohydrate addict. I literally found myself going through withdrawals from carbohydrates (complete with headaches). Because of this, it didn't seem to matter how much I exercised (which wasn't all that often because it wasn't at all enjoyable) I couldn't drop any weight.
I started using your Think Right Now software, selecting the Eating Well, Exercising Regularly and Losing weight statements. When I received the statements that went along with the "I Love Exercising Now" program, I added them as well. I even programmed a few statements of my own (knowing my addiction). Those statements were: I dissolve all cravings for chocolate and other unhealthy sweets and I willingly release all unnecessary fat from my body forever.
Well, a miracle happened (I'm sure you hear that often)! I have not had a bite of chocolate since I started using the software. I have not WANTED any sweets AT ALL. I've been eating fruit and vegetables for snacks and desserts (when I wanted them). Now, you may not understand how big that is for me, but let me share with you that before using TRN, if someone would offer me a fruit, I would respond by saying, "No thanks, I strictly stay away from healthy food." Can you believe what I was programming into my mind? So, eating fruits and vegetables instead of chocolate (or other sweets) is truly a miracle for me.
I have exercised EVERY day (except Sundays) and have enjoyed it immensely. I can't wait to get up in the morning to exercise. I WANT to exercise...I am not forcing myself to do it. I can already see a difference in the way my clothes fit and my husband has commented that my efforts are really starting to pay off! I have dropped 4 pounds in the last week, but more importantly, I feel stronger and my clothes are becoming too big...and this is after just two weeks! Wait until you see me in a few months!
I'm telling EVERYONE I know about Think Right Now programs and encouraging them to buy the software. I am a believer in miracles, and TRN has confirmed that miracles DO happen.
Thank you, Mike!

I have been reading your newsletter daily for some time now with all of your success stories and I thought it was about time I shared my story with you. Firstly I will start off by saying I cherish the day I stumbled across your website while surfing the Internet. The automatic changes in my attitude and life direction have been amazing. I will bring us back 7 months ago - I had a problem with drugs. The main problem was with the abuse of anabolic steroids and I believe that all of the other problems grew off this one (4 year long) bad habit. I put so much worth on my physical appearance that I was abusing my mind and body, and worse the people around me including the ones I loved. It all came to a crashing halt when I was so emotionally shattered that I sold everything I owned and ran off to Amsterdam. After a week of drugs taking and a month of starvation I was deported. Shortly after my return, I came across Think Right Now and the webpage convinced me to give it a go. I ordered I Love Exercising Now.
At first I was a bit skeptical that the program was designed only for those looking to lose weight but after a week of listening to the tape every night I realised I was back in the gym every day, automatically without fail! I really enjoyed lifting weights naturally, and I had not been worried about my appearance or dreaming of a quick fix. My health was my first priority and persistence and patience seemed to be so natural.
Two months later I was doing so well with 'I Love Exercising Now' I had to grab hold of your new title 'Unstoppable Motivation Now' - The results were INSTANT and before I knew it I my new goals were my life blood, my attitude and direction now seems so clear. I Will Not Fail!! All from just listening to, sorry not even listening to - just playing these tapes my life has taken such a turn for the better.
I'm physically and mentally in the best shape I have ever been, and I have the pass on my most sincere and gracious THANK YOU to Mr Mike Brescia and the team at ThinkRightNow.com.
Thank you for allowing me to share my story with you. As Mike would say 'I love you all'.

Good Evening Mike,
Yes, I did finish the book "Today is your day to win". I can honestly say that it was "awesome". Your book has been an inspiration to me. It has made a very positive contribution to my state of "being". I want to share with you some details of my "story" but I do request that you only use my first name and state where I live (in the event that you choose to use any of this feedback).
I am a mother of 3 (ages 17, 14, 12), a wife and a full-time employee for a fortune 500 company. In Sept. 2004, I made a personal decision to leave the other fortune 500 company where I had been employed for about 17 years. (I'm probably aging myself now...). I had what I thought was a wonderful opportunity to join a very small but growth oriented family owned business. You know the type...they make wonderful promises to get you in the door & then.
Since it was a small company, I believed that I could make a difference for them and they would in turn recognize and reward me for my contributions. I worked very hard for them...frequently worked late, came in early or worked on a weekend. As the husband & wife who owned the company lived & worked 6,000 miles away (Oct - May) & included a 5-6 hr time difference my work ethic was not "visible to them". Well, as you can imagine, being rewarded & appreciated for my extra efforts was not how this situation played out.
Last August, upon return from a week long vacation, the owners told me that they had elected to eliminate my position. They asked me...did I want to quit or did I want to be laid off? Of course I elected the 2nd option. However, I was devastated and humiliated! Although I was not happy working for them, it was one of the worst experiences my life. I had been working non-stop since I was a teenager. To have been let go by an Employer felt like the ultimate failure!
My point...it was a very "dark" time for me. I was depressed and my self-esteem was "rock bottom". It was at that point that I found your website and purchased the following programs in either October or November 2005:
Unstoppable Motivation Now!
Real Self Esteem Now!
Freedom from Depression Now!
I love Exercising Now!
Dissolving Panic & Anxiety Now!
My husband asked me why I purchased so many at once & I told him that it cost less than a 45 minute session with a therapist so it was worth a try. He reluctantly agreed & said, "I hope it helps". Mike, your programs and your book have helped me so much. I look forward to getting your e-mail messages and I thank you for all the good work that you are doing on behalf of so many. It is through these notes that I have gained courage to
take the next "right step". Your journey is inspirational & you communicate in such a positive & open style. I admire you and your wife Sherry for the positive results and success you have achieved through your hard-work and lifestyle changes.
I listen to the programs with headphones while going to sleep. I also rotate the CD's in my car. The following things have happened since I got the CD's and started receiving the daily e-mail notes of "Today is your day to win".
- I am happy again and I smile often
- I am a positive person
- I have more self-esteem
- I take myself less seriously
- I am exercising regularly
- I have lost 35 lbs.
- I am employed full-time and working again for a large corporation.
- My co-workers appreciate my sense of humor and my contributions.
We work hard and laugh frequently.
In conclusion....Mike, I am just another SUCCESS STORY! Thanks again for all you do!

I just wanted to tell you that I am having an incredible result from kustebubg to your tapes. I listened to the one for loving exercise 2 or 3 times. I am 66 years old and have never liked "exercise" and have never done any regularly. About 10 days ago I emerged from an extremely intense depression that created physical deterioration in lots of areas of my body. When I was 64 I had a depression that lasted for 8 months and then I had 4 months of a very out-of-balance "happy" time and then the recent 9 month depression that just ended.
I did nothing for 9 months but sit or lie down on the couch and watch 15 hours a day of TV. I was paranoid and rarely went out, I showered once a week when my husband was off from work and could walk me down the very steep steps in our house. I talked to very few people, made no out going calls nor did me access incoming calls. I wasn't eating or sleeping which produced a messed up body with all kinds of things having symptoms. My vision changed so that I went from needing reading glasses wearing glasses 24/7. I wasn't sleeping so I was doing crossword puzzles and watching TV. I learned a lot during that time but I don't wish it on any one because it wasn't pretty.
In two or three nights of listening (I smiled the entire 1st hour when I heard the affirmations) ( I love the meditation very much too ) I began exercising and I have gone from the biggest of couch potatoes to one who is creatively finding ways to integrate exercise into my life in fun ways.
Thank you so much for your amazing genius that put this system together. After 3 days of handling the exercise situation last night I put on the I Am Healed one. I feel healed already and feel blessed to have found you. You know when the student is ready, the teacher appears. Well you are the best teacher and I am eternally grateful to you.
Love and blessings being sent your way.
I have ordered five of your programs "Freedom From Depression Now", "Setting and Achieving Goals", "I love Exercising Now", "Eating For Excellent Health Now" and "Real Self Esteem Now" and I am thrilled to tell you how amazed I am at what a difference they have made. I noticed a change in the first few days. Over the years I felt that if only my thinking would change I would be able to accomplish some of the things I have always wanted to. I was always labeled as LAZY and I bought into that and believed it for many years. I am just now realizing that I'm not really lazy but was just living out of a mind set which I couldn't seem to change. Thank you, Thank you! I am now setting goals and I'm on the road to achieving them.
This e-mail is proof of the change because before I would have procrastinated and never got around to writing it. I actually cleaned my closet out yesterday and have signed up at a gym to start an exercise program. As I close I must tell you no one has ever in my lifetime told me not to overdo anything... in fact it's kind of a joke around my house that Mom will never overdo anything... but yesterday my husband actually said and he was dead serious, "Honey, don't try and do too much". When it dawned on us what he had just said we both had a good laugh.
Thanks again! I now understand the scripture in the Bible that says, "As a Man Thinks, So Is He".
Hello Think Right Now,
I just wanted to say that I am very impressed with your Think Right Now for Windows; "Dissolving Panic & Anxiety Now"; "I Love Exercising Now!" and "Setting & Achieving Goals Now!" programs. When I first bought your product I had had decades (20+ years) of pain and ill-health due to anxiety. Your programs cured me (along with a very peculiar diet I am doing-the Primal Diet). I had tried subliminal self-hypnosis tapes before and they were useless. Once I realized your tapes were inspired by Lozanov I was a lot more convinced of the science behind it, especially when I read that they were not subliminal.
Anyway I have always been a skeptic for most of my life regarding non-mainstream stuff and I only turned to you out of desperation, really. I was VERY surprised indeed to find that they actually worked. One thing though, you did not specify clearly how long one should use the tapes. I realize that each person has different needs etc., but still. Anyway, I used your tapes for 11 months every single day before going to sleep and felt a lot better but still seemed to be not quite "on the ball". Once I started using the programs only a few times a week, my concentration levels soared and I am now cured. I guess I just needed to give my brain a bit of a rest. I realize you are not exactly a charity, but you certainly seem to be doing a lot of good for us fellow humans.

I own "I Love Exercising Now!"; "Eating for Excellent Health Now!"; "Real Self-Esteem Now!"; "Supreme Confidence Now!"; "Dissolving Panic & Anxiety Now!"; "Setting & Achieving Goals Now!"; "Unstoppable Motivation Now!"; "Instant Diet Power"; "Instant Workout Power"; "Win Friends & Influence People Now!" and Think Right Now! for Windows. I listen to one of the programs every night. I have "Supreme Confidence Now!" and "Unstoppable Motivation Now!" in my car and Think Right Now! for Windows at work on the computer with the info from all of the above on it.
Where do I begin??? Looking at the list above you'd think I was a mess to start with, but I think it was curiosity that sold me on the first program. I knew from education and my own studies the power of affirmations and repetition. I would wake up in the morning feeling different. My life got better and better. I kept buying more programs. But how was it better? Well, I found myself answering people with lines from different programs or, more importantly, talking to myself with lines I had heard.
I can do anything I put my mind to.
I'm worthy of praise and rewards.
If I can dream it, I can do it.
And I started to believe it. So I tried new things and little by little I found myself getting excited about getting up the next day. I was happy all the time. People would comment about how "together" I was. When my son's girlfriend was having some problems she said she wanted to be more like me so I had you send her "Real Self Esteem Now!" and "Dissolving Panic & Anxiety Now!" Anyways it is hard to be specific because it seems to come so easy. I smile more. I look at situations and know I can make a positive impact. I've lost weight. I joined a gym and a wonderful yoga class.
I am happy with my life and I don't know what more any program could do. When I tell people how I listen every night, they seem skeptical. But people were skeptical of the telephone and television too at one time!

I love your newsletter. You always seem to hit the nail on the head as far as my own life issues have gone, it was actually uncanny. I have bought several of your Think Right Now programs ("I Love Exercising Now"; "Eating for Excellent Health Now"; "Setting and Achieving Goals Now" and "Real Self Esteem Now") and the new 60 beat music CD's which I listen to while I am studying. I admire your life principles, and I try to incorporate the idea of asking myself ..."what can I do for this person?" into every day.
Love your newsletter and your other products! Keep doing it!!
Thank you with much love and light,
