Is it really true that the economy is going downhill? That we are all doomed and need to stock up and be careful with our money, and not expect too much out of life right now? How does this situation affect us as internet marketers?
This is what Joe Vitale, the guy who wrote books such as Hypnotic Marketing and acted in the movie “The Secret” had to say recently on this topic:
I just recorded my new audio program in Chicago. I’ll tell you about it soon but want to share something with you first.
I was interviewed about the program while there. The host asked, “Joe, with the economy in the tank and sinking, what are we to do?”
“How do you know it’s sinking?” I asked.
But I didn’t give the host a chance to reply.
I went on saying –
“The only reason you think it’s terrible out there is because you are being programmed to think so by the mainstream media.”
The host stared at me as I went on my soapbox and continued –
“The media is trained to find bad news and broadcast it to you. The more they do it and you believe it, the worst the world looks. It then becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. You live from the new paradigm of scarcity and the media, doing its job, broadcasts it. You don’t even see it happening. It feels real.”
I then turned direction and said –
“But what if there was a different channel to watch or listen to? What if there was an Abundance Network and all it broadcast were stories of people succeeding, accomplishing, attracting and achieving?”
I continued with –
“We all know that there are people doing well in the world right now. If this alternative media broadcast their positive news, you would soon be programmed to see the world as an abundant place. You would then create a self-fulfilling prophecy of abundance. THAT would then feel real.”
My host barely had time to stutter before I kept going with –
“Look. Both types of world exist right now — the lousy economy one as well as the abundant economy one. The trick is, which are you going to
let program you? Which do you want to live in?”
I’m not aware of an Abundance Network yet. But until something like it exists what are you to do?
Here’s my suggestion –
Reprogram your mind.
Take charge of it.
Feed it the positive and you’ll see and then attract the positive.
You’ll “tune in” to the Abundance Network in your own mind.
And then you can thumb your nose at the doomsayers out there.
You can become immune to them.
At this point he went on to advertise the Milagro Manifestation Method, but the point is that you can choose your perspective, and that when you choose to see the world as a good place full of potential, then you will increase you chances of success.
Joe gives away a free book – Attract Money Now – which begins with his story of how he ended up broke and living on the streets. He achieved his success in a “bad” economic climate and is now a multi millionaire, so if he can make it, so can you and I!
