Last night Dan Kennedy gave an incredible presentation here at the Glazier-Kennedy Info Summit in St. Louis.
What made the evening really special is the fact that Dan doesn’t do much public speaking these days.
He’s taken somewhat of an early retirement, which means that fans like me don’t get to see him nearly as often as we used to.
And that being the case, it’s a “big deal” when we get the opportunity to spend the evening with him.
One of the things he talked about was his early years in business, and how he had everything going against him.
One of the biggest things was the fact that he had this major stuttering problem.
It was so bad, that almost everyone told him that he would never make it in the public speaking world.
But guess who’s having the last laugh now. And he’s laughing all the way to the bank.
Dan Kennedy has become a HUGE success in business, and is revered by countless people like myself.
Hearing his story immediately reminded me of when I first started in business.
I too had many nay-sayers who told me that I didn’t have what it takes.
Who told me not to waste my time.
Who told me I’d never be a success in business.
In fact, there was this one guy in particular who REALLY used to get under my skin.
He was an acquaintance of an old room mate, and every time he came over to our house, he’d make these snide comments.
“So Kev, have you made your first millyun yet”?
“Looks like those seminar promoters sure do know how to suck the munee out of your wallet”.
Like I said, this guy really used to get on my nerves.
But – I’d just bite my tongue and ignore him.
Then, on November 11th of 2006, I finally got my sweet revenge.
That Saturday was a big day for me, and I remember it well.
That was the day that I bought my new Hummer.
I’d got up early that morning so I could head down to the dealership near Seattle.
It just so happened that Robert, my old room mate, called me as I was heading down the freeway.
He called to see what I was up to for the day, and when I told him that I was on my way to buy a new Hummer, it surprised him to say the least.
He says, “That is so awesome Kevin. You really deserve it. When you head back this way, stop by my place so I can check out your new rig”.
So, that afternoon, on the way home from the dealership, I stopped by Robert’s house.
And when I pull up, guess who’s standing in the driveway with him?
Yep, you guessed it.
That jerk who used to give me such a hard time.
And let me tell you, seeing the look on his face when I pulled up in the new Hummer was priceless.
His jaw hit the ground.
And you know what else?
I didn’t say a word to him, and he didn’t say a word to me.
But it sure did feel good to know that I finally shut this guy up.
Maybe you’ve had a similar experience.
Maybe you’ve got someone, or even multiple someone’s who get under your skin.
Who don’t have faith in you.
Who don’t want to see you succeed.
And if that’s the case, here’s what you need to do.
Do the same thing I did. Don’t give them the satisfaction. Just keep your mouth shut.
Keep doing what you need to do.
Keep associating with like-minded, forward-thinking people who care about you, and can help you reach your goals.
And when the time is right, you’ll get your sweet revenge – just like I did.
If the thought of this sounds REALLY good to you, then keep an eye out for the email I’ll be sending you next Monday.
You’re gonna LOVE it.
Dedicated to your success,
