Profits in Turmoil

by | Oct 12, 2010 | Archives

How to make profits in turmoil was the focus of our International Investing and Business seminar that ended yesterday… here in the Blue Ridge.

business-opportunity

Delegates came out to our farm on Sunday for lunch and private discussions with our speakers.

During the seminar delegates studied how to adapt to today’s rapid economic change by “investing in turmoil”.

During the conference we looked at specific investments including those in my portfolio, how that portfolio has adapted over the past two years and saw how the recent economic turmoil and US dollar crash increased it by 12.94% in just the last month.

We also looked at over 60 investments that can profit in turmoil and a dollar drop now.

Here are seven of these shares we reviewed in extra depth.

We also looked at economic philosophy and concepts outlined by Confucius who said:

The superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may come. When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of ruin. When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come. Thus his person is not endangered, and his States and all their clans are preserved.” Confucius

In these times of transition… when chaos seems to be the order… when sound bites and spin seem to rule…. rather than truth, law and order… where can we go… who can we look to for guidance?

One ray of wisdom and truth that has survived the tests of time are the quotes of  Confucious.

Here are seven of his thoughts that spotlight a wise course of action for good health and everlasting wealth… always have and always will.

“Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.”

“I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”

“It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.”

“He who will not economize will have to agonize.”

“They must often change who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.”

Let’s focus on two Confucian reflections of truth.

“Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without.”

“When music and courtesy are better understood and appreciated, there will be no war.”

Thousands of years ago Confucius recognized the awesome power of music to create balance… restore harmony and make profit from turmoil.

Merri and I believe this as well… which is why we have increasingly devoted our time to our Super Thinking courses where we let music help students improve their ability to absorb, retain, use and recall information….PLUS learn how to communicate in Spanish in four days.

Doing well in turmoil requires the ability to adapt and this requires three things, understanding, communications and inspiration.

We learn these skills at our Super Thinking Plus Spanish course in Mt. Dora, Florida.  Here are delegates intent on absorbing Spanish.  Many are learning before they head for Ecuador.

The importance of knowing Spanish goes beyond Ecuador.  Spanish is the second largest language in the world. Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives south of or around you. Yet our language system did not teach us how to communicate with or understand this culture.

Learning Spanish is valuable and important.  Now there is way, to enjoy a long weekend in as you learn Spanish at a very affordable price.

The 40 delegates at the last course enjoying a coffee break.  Delegates help each other learn.  They came from all over the world…  The USA, Canada, Europe…even South Africa. Sri Lanka & China.

To learn in the sun is fun! Enjoy the sun and solve one of the biggest communications problems that faces a great deal of the English speaking civilization.

By simply changing your music inside and out you unlock universal power.

Merri was trained in the system by the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Giorgi Lozanov, who altered the face of education using music in teaching, so she could use music to help you learn.

Super Thinking teaches the first step in listening to music to gain power.

You can attend this course on its own or as part of our Super Thinking + Spanish Course that uses music to help you learn Spanish in just four days.

In times of transition… as we are living now, chaos is the order.  Turn that chaos into order… better health… everlasting wealth and happiness with the secrets of power in music.

Here is some more wisdom from Confucious.

“Be not ashamed of mistakes and thus make them crimes.

“Ignorance is the night of the mind, but a night without moon and star.

“Men’s natures are alike, it is their habits that carry them far apart.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.

“Respect yourself and others will respect you.

“Study the past if you would define the future.

“To be able under all circumstances to practice five things constitutes perfect virtue; these five things are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness.

“To see what is right and not to do it is want of courage.

“What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others.

“When anger rises, think of the consequences.

“When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.

“Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

“Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.

“Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.

“By nature, men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart.

“Fine words and an insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue.

“Have no friends not equal to yourself.

“He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north polar star, which keeps its place and all the stars turn towards it.

“He who speaks without modesty will find it difficult to make his words good.

“He with whom neither slander that gradually soaks into the mind, nor statements that startle like a wound in the flesh, are successful may be called intelligent indeed.

“Hold faithfulness and sincerity as first principles.

“I am not one who was born in the possession of knowledge; I am one who is fond of antiquity, and earnest in seeking it there.

The great violinist Yehudi Menuhin talked of the power of music in another way.

violin

As in music… so in life.

Yehudi Menuhin expressed the power of music in his book “Theme and Variations” this way: Music creates order out of chaos; for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity of the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous.  Thus a confusion surrenders to order and noise to music, and as we through music attain that greater universal order which rests upon fundamental relationships of geometrical and mathematical proportion, direction is supplied to mere repetitious time, power to the multiplication of elements, and purpose to random association.

In times of transition… as we are living now, chaos is the order.  Turn that chaos into order… better health… everlasting wealth and happiness with the secrets of power in music.

Learn Spanish in Three Days

Why You Can Learn Spanish in Three Days

You can learn Spanish in a day, or a week, month or any time frame that works for you.

I’m Gary Scott.  Over fifty years ago I started a business that has helped hundreds of thousands of subscribers learn about investing in Hong Kong (1960s and 1970s), Switzerland, London, Isle of Man (1970s and 1980s) and across Europe. My wife Merri and I took thousands on investing tours to these countries.

In the 1990s we began taking investors to Panama, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.  That’s when we realized an incredible need for an easy, super fast way to learn Spanish.  Our delegates were business people with hard schedules and tight deadlines.  They did not have months, or even weeks to learn a second language.

Plus, even though these delegates were successful international business people, most did not have degrees in grammar.  When it came to sentence structure, punctuation rules, parts of speech, morphology and especially derivation of verbs, they were at a loss. They wanted good basic ways to communicate in Spanish that worked and sounded eloquent, right now, without having to become educated in grammar.

Fortunately there is a scientific method of learning (called Super Learning) that was created and refined by a Soviet educational master, Georgi Lozanov.   Lozanov transformed the entire Soviet Union’s educational system to such a degree that this third world nation beat the USA into space.

My wife Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside the Soviet Union who were taught this system by Lozanov himself in the early 1970s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for decades so we used it to create a Super Spanish course that has helped thousands of subscribers learn Spanish in three days and less.

This course is now available online.

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way, but the scientific Super Learning method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books creates educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music to create Relaxed Concentration in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Soviet educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

You gain six valuable ONLINE Baroque Relaxed Concentration Sessions in the online course that is delivered via the internet.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently. 

For example action is accion.

Education-educacion.

Manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read these four sentences? 

Ask yourself.  “How many words do you know that end in ION”.

You now know all these Spanish words that you will never forget.

How long would it have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

The third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

In an incredibly short time you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving.  The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.

The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know.   This eliminates the need to memorize 99% of Spanish words.

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.   The normal three day in person course fee is $499 ($749 for a couple).

The ONLINE course is available at the highly reduced price of $149, but in this special offer we are knocking another $70 from the price so you can start now for only $79.

Here are some testimonials from the course.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!” Nadine Taylor
