For this assistance I have two videos here that can change your life in a most positive way.
The first video shows that you can refuse to accept the tyranny of reason that modern education tries to impose. Let me explain.
Our Super Spanish program has been growing nicely because so many people are like me… incapable of conjugating verbs or understanding past present and plu perfect tenses (and whatever!) etc.
It seems quite ironic… earning a good living and fulfilled life… as a writer since I failed at grammar and could never diagram a sentence in school. I still get confused about things other than a rumor that you can’t end sentences with certain parts of speech and Winston’s Churchill’s comment about that…. “This is the sort of English up with which I will not put.”
Even funnier is the fact that I teach Spanish when my two years of high school Latin were total abysmal failures. The minute a teacher says something like… “Latin verbs have four main patterns of conjugation. As in a number of other languages, most Latin verbs have an active voice and a passive voice. There also exist deponent and semi-deponent Latin verbs (verbs with a passive form but active meaning), as well as defective verbs (verbs with a perfect form but present meaning)”… my mind has totally freaked out. Semi deponent what?
If you have a passion… pursue it! The heck with what education says we can and cannot do. I love to write and have always enjoyed the process so I just sat down and did it… the English teachers be damned. Do not let anyone tell you why you cannot turn your passion into profit. You do not have to accept the tyranny of their reason.
Writing and speaking languages are experiential not educational processes. The way to get good at them is to then create first… study second.
I receive many emails like this one a reader sent last week: Gary, I have taken 3 Spanish classes here in Cuenca, and a private teacher for 3 months. Not to mention the Pimsler program, and I lived in Mexico for a year as a kid. But i still can’t speak well enough to be confident. I believe it is because everyone teaches the same way. I have also taken and dropped out of 4 college Spanish classes within the 1st month. (doesn’t look good on my transcript, and i am a 3.8 student and on the honor roll – that was just last semester in the US). There is nothing worse than trying hard to learn something when it isn’t taught correctly. Thank you.
Most Spanish courses teach you Spanish grammar. Super Thinking + Spanish teaches communication.
Super Thinking courses teach how to be smarter so you can absorb, retain and recall information. Second, the course teaches how to communicate in Spanish. You can start talking from the very first day and making sentences. Studies have shown that talking is the ONLY way to perfect speaking Spanish. Speaking a language like writing is not like memorizing a poem. These skills are learned in the same way as riding bikes. The process to perfection is experiential not educational. You learn by doing… not studying.
You can do it. We have abilities far beyond what we are taught in school. We do not have to let the tyranny of reason deny us our destiny. Here is proof.
When, in the state of relaxed concentration, we tap into the higher intelligence that we all possess. An example of the human ability is shown in this 3 minute video on relaxed concentration.
This video sent to me by our pronunciation coach, Don Childs, shows a modern day samurai, Isao Machii who can have a pellet fired at him from 70 ft away and draw his sword and cut the pellet into two pieces on the fly.
A scientist in the video explains “This is about processing on an entirely different sensory level, he is not visually processing it, this is a different level of anticipatory processing”.
A normal person would take 3 tenths of a second to process the sound of the gun and by the time that he started to draw the sword, the pellet would have past them.
Watch this video and look at the samurai’s face. He is in a state of complete awareness and knows what the path of the pellet will be in the future and acts to intercept it. He becomes pure action. He is tuned in at the universal level… just as our delegates do in Super Spanish.
If you missed last week’s message here is a ten minute video of Don Childs with me showing how to get started creating Spanish sentences right now.
Because the Super Spanish course really works, attendance has grown to the point that we can afford to provide some full scholarships. This is why I need your help.
Last week we invited readers to apply for a full scholarship to a Super Thinking + Spanish course. We explained that you… our readers, would choose who is awarded this opportunity to attend a course at no charge.
Six applications arrived and all appear deserving… but we only have space for one. Would you help us and vote for the scholarship applicant you feel is most deserving and or will accomplish the most.
Please read the applications below and send your vote by simply writing “Applicant # -” with the applicant number of your choice. Please email this to Cheri at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello! I was SO excited to read about the possibility of getting a full scholarship to a Super Thinking/ Spanish Course. The course I am most interested in is November 2-3-4 in Florida. I have a very limited income, but with a full scholarship and my sister watching my son, I will be able to pay for transportation to Florida as well as other small expenses that might not be covered.
Here’s my story (short version):
I am hoping to move with my son to Ecuador within the next 2 years and thus far know very little spanish. I am even more excited to learn the Lozanov system!! It will change my life dramatically to be able to think clearly, learn efficiently, and be able to retain more information! I am a single mother of a wonderful 9.5 year old boy who deserves my best, but I’ve been struggling with depression for 12 or so years, and living with a “heavy fog” on my brain, making it extremely difficult to concentrate, remember, and manage stress. I have not been taking depression medication as I feel meds only mask or numb the problem. I truly believe that with new super-thinking strategies, I will overcome my depression and really feel motivated and alive again! It’s time to use all of my great creative ideas for good cause! I wish to impact the world, at least small communities, in an exciting positive way and I believe in giving back whenever and where ever I can! Please please please consider me for a scholarship! Thank you for your time!
I would like to apply for your scholarship program for the March, Mt Dora Super thinking/ Spanish workshop. I am a missionary working for a small, non-denominational organization called Issa International. I have been on a medical sabbatical for over a year with a blood clot on my brain. I have just this month been released by the doctors to go back to work. I work in Tanzania, Cuba and Ecuador. Knowing how to speak Spanish at least conversationally would greatly enhance my work. I have always relied on translators in my work (except for Tanzania because I speak Swahili). But I now work more in the Spanish speaking countries and our budget has taken a serious downturn during my illness. It would help me get back on my feet if I could attend a workshop and return to the field a Spanish conversant. Thank you for considering my application. God’s blessings on you both.
Since my return in 2009 from a year working abroad in India, I have been lost. I had spent everything on a B.F.A. in graphic design and realized I did not want a career in advertising. I could not blindly create while so many starve, pollution grows and more and more trees are cut down.
Scraping by on $400-$800 a month, I have finally found what I can to do. I am selling my car, saving every ounce and heading to Costa Rica in January 2013 to gain a Permaculture Design Certificate. “Permaculture is an ecological design system for sustainability in all aspects of human endeavor. It teaches us how build natural homes, grow our own food, restore diminished landscapes and ecosystems, catch rainwater, build communities and much more.”
If I am able to take your course, I will gain the confidence in helping humanity transistion into peaceful co-existence with nature. I am excited for the future and hope we can share our reality. My timing is still flexible and I can be present in November, December or January. Thank you for providing this opportunity while I hope to hear from you.
Thank you for creating the Super Thinking scholarship. In 2010, I started import/export business in Japan. Before I could add language training and publishing, the earthquake wiped out my market. I faced bankruptcy. Thanks to my language and teaching abilities, I survived, but the debt is significant.
My previous business experience resulted in a two-year contract with a global company. Unfortunately, the internal politics make new projects very difficult. Contract extension may not happen. Either way, I have half a year to prepare an exit strategy or face bankruptcy again.
I use five languages (Polish, Japanese, English, Czech and Russian) and understand written text in another 10. I am half way through developing an online English course for Japanese who are hopeless with languages. I need a special approach like Super Thinking (ST) to make them successful.
There is a big problem in Japan with jobs for new college graduates. Using ST, language training and my international experience, I will be able to assist them in becoming global players.
I want to develop a method to learn 5 languages simultaneously. Based on ST English => Spanish method, I want to add Italian and Brazilian or/and French; maybe Romanian. This would start in Japan, Singapore and Poland.
The next step would be Slavic, Asian and German languages to find language groups I could work with using ST. All this will be supported by publishing and international business consulting projects mainly in Japan and Europe, though with Spanish, the South American market might be very interesting.
Wow! Thanks for posting this Gary! I am also a disabled veteran, suffering from bi-polar disorder, post traumatic syndrome, and loss of hearing in both of my ears. I wear hearing aides, “appliances” as they like to call them. Not what I imagined I would be wearing at 43! My husband and I are both Realtors here in Alabama, I am a stay at home mom and keep my license because after being diagnosed 13 years ago it was my first big accomplishment! We have a sixteen year old at home still, the last in a line of seven, and look forward for him going to college at the University of Alabama where he will study to be an engineer. He wants to travel the world and build for less fortunate countries and the people who reside there. My husband and I both know that what ever social security (if there is any!) and my disability check from Social Security will not allow us to maintain the house we now live, much less pay the bills. We are really studying Equador, and have not only my mom and step-dad, but a few friends that have also expressed interest in Equador! I would appreiciate any insight on how we may get down there for a visit, without costing us an arm and a leg! I am passing on the email that you sent to my husband to see if we can attend one of your classes in Florida! God bless, and hope to see you soon!
The most important one to me right now is the Super Thinking and Spanish. The others close behind.
My problem is qualifying for the scholarship program you just started. (I believe the Law of Attraction works.) I am a Korean Vet with no physical handicaps but I did have a heart attack and a TSA in 2006. I am 83 years young and have quite a variety of interests. I am a widower twice and live alone. With gas prices and real estate taxes on my home; there isn”t much left over with a social security of $955 per month.
However, I would like to attend the course in Jan. 2013 in Mt. Dora, Fl. I can drive there from here easily. Sincerely.
Please send your vote to to Cheri at email@example.com showing “Applicant # -” with the applicant number of your choice.

The Huge 2020 RiskHere is a huge risk that could explode in 2020.
I hope I am wrong… but the numbers are clear.
According to Treasurydirect.com, (1) as of December 26, 2020 the total US public debt was 23 trillion and 845 billion dollars.
This is not a theoretical problem for the future. This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with. This is a problem in the here and now for you and me.
Rising interest rates create a massive problem for every American.
Look at how the interest costs alone have risen to over a half trillion dollars a year.
The bad news is that the (US federal debt) is getting bigger….harder to miss. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in 2010 (the debt then was a bit over 14 trillion) that, under law at that time, debt held by the public would exceed $16 trillion by 2020, reaching nearly 70 percent of GDP.
The $7 Trillion Error.
They sure goofed on that. Here we are… only in 2020 and debt has shot past 23 trillion.
How could the CBO be so wrong?
The CBO screwed up because they could never imagine that the Fed would push interest rates so low… and keep them there. The interest rates are so low that the government has been able to borrow more than imagined and still afford the interest.
For example, US Federal government interest last year amounted to around $573 billion. Yet in 2008 on debt of only $9 trillion + the interest that year was $451 billion +.
Interest payments in 2017 were 27% higher than they were in 2008. Yet the debt is over 250% higher.
Very low interest rates have helped the government borrow. Low interest has also helped the US stocks reach all time high prices.
The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.
Rising interest rates, will create an almost unimaginable debt crisis. If government interest doubles it is like the $23+ trillion national debt rising to 46 trillion! Unless there are some huge tax increase the interest payments are not sustainable.
Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit in your savings despite America’s deficits, debt and currency risk.
Fortunately there are secrets that will allow a few to live much better, free of debt and worry despite the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power. My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.
Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2020.
The first fact behind this secret is that things are really good in the western world. Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has ever enjoyed, anywhere, ever. To enjoy a fair share of this wealth, all we have to do is understand human nature and learn how to invest in the new economy, as it changes and becomes new, again and again.
Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years. Each has allowed us to always stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer. We are in another transition right now and want to share why and what to do so you can stay ahead and live a richer, independent life through 2020 and beyond.
A falling US dollar is one of the greatest risks we have to our independence, safety, health, and wealth, but also brings a window of huge profit as I explain below. Though the greenback has been strong for a number of years, its strength is in serious jeopardy. The growing federal deficits increase the national debt and this with rising interest rates propels a growing debt service.
While the Dow Jones Industrial Average passed a record high, the U.S. national debt passed the $20 trillion mark.
The problem is that the Dow will come back down. National debt will not fall.
The double shock of money fleeing Wall Street and US debt skyrocketing, will destroy the purchasing power of the greenback.
Go to the store even now. Statistics say inflation is low, but buy some bread or, heaven forbid, some fresh vegetables like peppers or fruit. Look at the cost of your prescription or hospital bills. Do something simple like have your car serviced at an auto dealer. Look at the dollars you spend and you’ll see what I mean.
The loss of the dollar’s purchasing power erodes our independence, our freedom and our savings and wealth as well.
At the same time, low interest rates by big banks and higher health care costs soak up the ever diminishing income and savings we have left. According to a Gallup poll, the most unpopular three institutions in America are big corporations & Wall Street banks, HMOs and Congress.
Yet there is little we can do because these institutions are in control.
Over the last 50 years the average income for 90 percent of the American population fell. Our health system is restricted by a Kafka-esque maze of legislation and insurance regulations that delay, frustrate, and thwart attempts by patients and doctors from proper medical care. Big banks and corporations restrict our freedom of choice. The business customer relationships are no longer transactions between free equals.
Banks can trap us in indebtedness at every age from student loans to mortgages to health care costs. They pay almost nothing on our savings. They hide unexpected fees and payments in complex and unreadable documents. Banks and big corporations routinely conceal vital information in small print and then cheat. Weak regulations and lax enforcement leave consumers with few ways to fight back. Many of these businesses ranging from cable TV to phone and internet service to health insurance have virtual monopolies that along with deceptive marketing destroys any form of free market.
These same companies control the credit-scoring agencies so if we don’t pay unfair fees, our credit scores will plunge and we could lose the ability to borrow money, rent an apartment, even to get a job. Many consumers are forced to accept “arbitration clauses” in lieu of legal rights. The alternative is to lose banking, power, and communication services.
Big business has also usurped our privacy. Internet companies sell our personal data. Personal information is pulled from WiFi and iPhones track and store our movements. The government can access this information, sometimes without subpoenas. There’s a lot that we don’t know, often withheld under the guise of “National Security.”
The glow on Western democratic capitalism has dimmed… or so it seems. The US, leading the way, is still a superpower with economic, innovation and military might, but the institutions that should serve the people have become flawed or broken.
America’s infrastructure is in shambles. The nation’s bridges are crumbling, many water systems are filled with toxins, yet instead of spending more to fix this, we build more prisons. The 2.2 million people currently in jail is a 500 percent increase over the past thirty years. 60% of the inmates belong to ethnic groups. Not just non-white ethnic groups are suffering. Annual death rates are falling for every group except for middle-aged white Americans. Death rates are rising among this group driven by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse, alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.
America’s middle class is shrinking. Nearly half of America’s income goes to upper-income households now. In 1970 only 29 percent went to this group. How can we regain our freedom, our happiness and our well being in such a world?
What can we do?
Gain a better, freer life is to combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle.
Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles. Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:
#1: Global micro business income.
#2: Low cost, natural health.
#3: Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead
Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits. They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.
28 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits. The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.
Join us for all of 2020 NOW.
The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together. Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life. There is little we can do to change this big picture. However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.
We start with better lower cost health care.
Club membership begins by sharing ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”. Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”. Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen. Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.
Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health. One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.
Often, what patients catch in the hospital can be worse than what sent them there. Governments and health care agencies agree – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.” An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know. About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.
Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals. This is why charge masters are so often secret. There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.
I have created three natural health reports are about:
Each report is available for $19.95. However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.
Club members also receive seven workshops and courses on how earn everywhere with at home micro businesses. We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”. The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free. These courses and reports are:
- “International Business Made EZ”
- “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
- Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
- The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
- The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
- Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
- The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”
This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free. You save $299 more.
Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi). The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit. Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.
Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies. These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad. The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear. Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.
Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio. There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.
The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).
There are seven layers of tactics in the Pi strategy.
Pi Tactic #1: Determine purpose and good value.
Pi Tactic #2: Diversify 70% to 80% of portfolio equally in good value developed markets.
Pi Tactic #3: Invest 20% to 30% equally in good value emerging markets.
Pi Tactic #4: Use trending algorithms to buy sell or hold these markets.
Pi Tactic #5: Add spice speculating with ideal conditions.
Pi Tactic #6: Add spice speculating with leverage.
Pi Tactic #7: Add spice speculating with forex potential.
The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:
#1: Current book to price
#2: Cash flow to price
#3: Earnings to price
#4: Average dividend yield
#5: Return on equity
#6: Cash flow return
#7: Market history
We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.
This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets. I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.
This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy. The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs. This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use. Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.
The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat. Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund. Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required. The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices. Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.
Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.
The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $2299.
Profit from the US dollar’s fall.
In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich. Some of my readers made enough to retire. Others picked up 50% currency gains. Then the cycle ended. Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview. He said: Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!
Club members receive a report about opportunity in the current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago. The dollar rose along with Wall Street. Profits came quickly over three years. Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51% in just two years. A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.
This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago. The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.” This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments. I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.
The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000). There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.
This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.
Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Platinum Dip 2019” free.
With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events. The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV). The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.
Now there is a new distortion ready to ripen in the year ahead.
These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.
I prepared a special report “Platinum Dip 2019”. The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged precious metal speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times. The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.
The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Platinum Dip 2018” offers enormous profit potential in 2018.
The report “Platinum Dip 2019” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.
The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.
There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do. There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.
There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income. Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier. Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”.
Learn about these specific places. More important learn what makes them special. Discover seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar places of opportunity.
The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire. (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not!)
The report is very specific because it describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.
Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning locally and globally.
This report is available online for $39.99 but International Club members receive it free.
