Don’t Envy Me – Join Me Part II

By: Dan Kennedy on: December 20th, 2010 4 Comments

Let’s continue our discussion about jealousy and envy and how to instantly overcome both.

I’m using the information marketing business as metaphor and example. We could just as easily be talking about schucking everything, moving to the Bahamas and opening a resort. Or becoming a bestselling author. Or losing 50 pounds. Or making an extra million dollars this year.

My point is, simply, if someone can do it, why not you?

Dr. Paul Searby went from barely making a good living as a dentist, working 40 to 50 hours a week, to making more money in a month than he did all year, working two days a week in the information business. I know Paul well and, no disrespect intended, there’s no innate or genetic edge, no personal attribute that you might lack. Yes, he’s studied and worked hard for a handful of years, made himself a good copywriter, had a couple false starts before hitting it big. But that’s nothing you can’t do

If he can, why not you too?

Bill Glazer went into the family retail business and successfully ran menswear stores before coming into the information marketing business “cold”. Only a few years later, he went on to having a multi-million dollar a year info-business enjoying continuous, rapid growth, encompassing online and offline marketing, niche and mainstream markets. He had no relevant experience.

If he can, why not you too?

Jeff Kaller was a short order cook, Ron LeGrand a car mechanic. Ron’s info-businesses produced over 25-million dollars last year. He even bought his own private jet.

Jerry Jones was merely putting out a newsletter for dentists; to having a high-priced coaching program, a complete ‘do it for them’ direct-mail company. (He’s also doing huge real estate deals.)

You know Yanik Silver as an internet marketer. But he’s quickly built an amazing coaching/services business, providing marketing to cosmetic surgeons — a program that sells for $96,000.00 per person.

No, he’s never been a surgeon.

If they can, why not you? I developed the most successful marketing newsletter business on earth.

I’m a high school grad, I’ve been bankrupt, I’ve zero professional credentials. If I can, why not you?

This is how you MUST think. About everything. There’s no reason not to. Do NOT disqualify yourself. From anything.

    I think what you’re saying is that not only can anyone be an information marketer who makes thousands a year… you can be one who earns millions each year. Good reminder.

    You may remember Frank Kern’s email about 2 months ago focused on getting testimonials. That’s powerful stuff, and you’re quite right, the more people we read about (especially those who are like us) who succeed while overcoming the “think small” mental barriers, the closer it moves us forward.

    You know what, you are absolutely correct. You are your worst enemy and should overcome all fears and doubting thoughts.

    Thanks Dan
