A reader responded to last Tuesday’s message “Ride the Wild Horse” with this note.
Great email today Gary. Would love to read part two that starts with the tent where you left off. I’m sure there is weeks of writing to bring us up to today.
Have a wonderful day!
I’m answering that reader in this series.
We bought the Blue Ridge farm and the Coleman tent. Last Thursday in the message “Life is Good” I explained how we then also bought a 950+ acre hacienda Rosapamba deep in the Andes.
Our business rose 52%. During this downturn when many investors lost half their savings or more… our wealth was up… without any special attempt to make this so.
This leads me to remind you of the mantra Merri and have expressed and lived by for decades, “Turn Your Passion Into Profit“.
Here’s another response to the message, “Ride the Wild Horse“.
Loved your letter today Gary. My wife and I have made decisions to follow our dreams and while those decisions have led to interesting outcomes they usually didn’t turn out so well financially.
The point is, you do not have to sacrifice material abundance to have fulfillment in life.
When we rode the wild horse, was the increase in our business and income Luck?
Perhaps… except this was not the first time… by closing our eyes and following how we felt… rather than what we saw or what society dictated was “reasonable”, we have stumbled on pots of gold while trying to do something else.
Hunches are more than wild imagination.
Hunches are a form of communication that go beyond what our brain can sort out in finite terms. A seed of belief about leaving our comfy gentrified Naples existence was planted, those many years ago, that has grown as we have cultivated it with trial, error and experience.
For example, after we moved (for winters) to Ecuador, we started conducting real estate tours and course on how to Speak Spanish in three days.
On day while conducting an Ecuador real estate tour, we were in a small village, Cotacachi, and took the tour group for lunch at a small colonial hotel, Meson de las Flores.
I was inspecting the third floor suite when the tour guide mentioned that the hotel was for sale. “Oh crap” was my immediate thought. “We’re going to have to buy this hotel”.
Merri was downstairs. I don’t know how she discovered the buying opportunity, but up she came and we met as I was coming down towards the second floor landing. She looked up. I looked down. “Yeah I know”, I said. I’m not sure we even had to say, “we are buying this hotel”, but we both knew and we did.
That turned out to be immensely fulfilling and a financial success.
Here’s Merri in our hotel helping delegates on a real estate tour.
We conducted our “Super Spanish” courses in this conference room in the Cotacachi museum that was attached to the hotel.
Later, we bought a block of condos after exchanging a 15 second glance. Again and again we have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars based on “illogical” hunches.
These investments were made based on hunches and good business sense.
We did not just jump into buying the farm or the hotel or the condos without looking at the math.
The hunches led us to the logic. We did our due diligence once we had the hunch. Did we take a risk? Yes! All investments contain risk. Getting out of bed in the morning has a risk, depending on what one might consider a risk. Could we lose money, “yes” we realized. Yet if we had not acted what would have been the risk of not living a full life?
Could we make money? “Yes”, we also realized and believing that the universe works on trial and error, we took the path.
We did not borrow. We did not go “all in”, we used sane, reasonable calculations to examine the consequences of our actions based on the hunch.
So the next time you need a miracle…do not deny that one can happen. The next time you have done your due diligence and some small niggling idea reaches you, act on it. This does not mean you should stop working nor that you should quit using due diligence. The idea is to fuse the intellect and intuition, not abandon nor honor one over the other. They work best as a team!
Nor does it mean you should go out and risk all on a hunch.
Start small… all things should start small and grow.
Nor does it mean you will not have to work. Often the hunches have led us to incredible amounts of labor.
You possess connections to infinite knowledge. Your mind cannot grapple this because the act of defining defeats the very thing you are connected to. However, if you let go and let your intuition lead you, you too may have some wonderful surprises and luck that after awhile will not be surprising at all!
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.
