For around four decades “turn your passion into profit” has been a mantra we have promoted, first in our printed material and then at our website.
Following your passions can be easier said than done. Following our passions to seek and live our purpose is a very spiritual process, but that spirit is housed in these fragile bodies we have chosen and that physical part of us lives in a very material world. We have to balance these physical needs with our purpose.
Unleashing our passions is like letting a pack of blood hounds off on a scent. When they go dashing in different directions, its confusing to know which hound to follow. So where do we start?
There is a seven step process we can all use whether we have our own careers, a business or even if we are retired (PIEC investing is especially good for retired folks who have found the supposed good life flat or financially short).
The first step is to get a clear idea or vision of our dream. This is sometimes harder to achieve than it seems. We are so deluged with false ideals from Washington, Wall Street, Madison Avenue, etc. that we have to stop and really take stock.
There is a very practical economic reason to look inwards for wealth. Warren Buffet recommends that we only invest in what we understand. What can we understand better than ourselves?
This inner search will lead us to an ideal that begins the second step which is gaining enthusiasm. How can we be anything but enthusiastic about finally fulfilling our deepest dreams? The enthusiasm leads to the third step; gaining an education.
We need to find out everything we can about our idea. To succeed we must become real experts in the product or service we offer.
Fourth, this educational process allows us to develop an intelligent, focused business plan we can act upon and the action is the fifth step which brings us the experience. Experience gives us the sixth step, a financial loss or profit. Remember we always profit in increased knowledge which creates the seventh step, more ideas. Then the entire cycle starts all over again: Idea, Enthusiasm, Education, Action, Experience, Financial Profit and New Ideas.
This seven step cycle may take days, weeks, months or years, but the moment you begin you’ll start moving into an avenue of affluence where you love your work so though money isn’t your main goal it comes more easily.
There are a couple of ways to execute these seven steps.
One way is to seek. Explore many paths.
The seekers ramble along, following their passions, looking for the one.
Another approach. Be a striver. Fixate more on passions you feel most certain, focus, strive and make them happen.
Strivers stalk their passion like a tiger after its prey.
Merri and I were always seekers, doing many things that peaked our curiosity and remaining alert for feelings that expanded and grew strong, sweeter, more exciting in our heart.
We have been blessed and privileged as partners to spot, confirm and encourage one another’s passions with a glance.
However not everyone is given such a precious gift and the static created from our backgrounds, our history and experience, plus cultural and economic pressures, can dim the light of our passions.
Here’s some points that when kept in mind that can help us follow our passion despite the many filters blocking the light.
#1: Do it for love.
#2: Follow your heart not your wallet.
#3: Do it on the side if your finances cannot allow full time.
#4: Don’t let the tyranny of reason stop you.
Here is a great example. Do and be what you always dreamed. Do not let anyone tell you what you cannot do. For example, what if you said you wanted to be a lingerie fashion model at age 62. Many would say “you’re crazy” right?

This article shows how we can do anything your choose when it says: Clothing giant American Apparel has bucked the overarching trend for fresh faced young models in fashion campaigns, by using a 62-year-old model in their lingerie advert.
An image of Jacky O’Shaughnessy dressed only in lace underwear was posted on its Facebook and Instagram pages accompanied with the tagline: “Sexy has no expiration date.”
Ms O’Shaughnessy began modelling for the brand after being scouted in a New York restaurant in 2011. She appeared in their Advanced Basics campaign, her first ever modelling shoot, which she described as “lots of fun”.
Speaking to Fashionista.com, she said: “You know, I’ve read so many times that modeling is vapid at best. I found it to be engaging and creative. It requires energy and an ability to communicate without words.
This is the first era of mankind when the value of our experience is worth much more than the cost of getting it! Age is no longer a reason to not have a pinnacle career.
That’s the way to get ahead!
Create more income opportunity. Reduce stress. Improve your health. Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.
You can improve your IQ in just weeks.
You might well ask… How is this possible?
Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.
A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1) show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brain. The article says:
Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.
Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.
Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.
British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later. 9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.
The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age.
MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.
There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes. New tasks stimulate the brain most. Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.
Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.
Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life. Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.
Improve the brain through music… without lessons.
Here’s the Super Thinking story…
The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.
Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated. The music creates the three C’s: Calm, Clarity and Coherence.
This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.
Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!
At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.
This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons. An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.
Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.
Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.
We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ. Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!
Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.
Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.
Here’s a huge bonus. Super Thinking also relieves stress. Super Thinking is fun.
You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything: health… earning… education… investing.
Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second. This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.
If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information. The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!
Share our years of experience.
For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain). Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound. Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.
The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing. Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit. Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.
For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.
She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range. My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”
Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.
Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.
Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish! I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you. I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.
Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes. I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra. I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life. I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.
Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.
However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.
That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form. Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.
Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.
The workshop is divided into two parts. Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use. We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.
Part two is a longer portion on theory.
Part one is enough.
Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!
You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ. But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.
You might ask…”Will it work for me”?
The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.
I guarantee it. Order the Super Thinking Workshop. Use it for two months. If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.
Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me, I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”. I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted. I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow. Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!
Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money. Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense. Learn Super Thinking now with no risk. Begin to increase your intelligence today.
