Monsters VS. Aliens

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

This week is Spring Break, so all the kids are out of school. That means that Kaitlynn (our 15-year old daughter) is home all week, and the last thing she wants to do is sit around the house.

So, needless to say – I’m not going to be spending much time at work for the next few days.

Instead, I’ll be taking time out to spend with Kaitlynn.

We kicked the Spring Break festivities off yesterday by going to see “Monsters VS. Aliens”.

This isn’t a movie that I’d normally go see in the theater, but hey, when you’ve got kids, anything is fair game.

And truth is, the movie was pretty entertaining.

Whenever I watch a movie, I’m always looking for the underlying stories, or the underlying lessons – and yes, “Monsters VS. Aliens” had many.

The biggest one was this:

We can insure our future success – in ANY endeavor – by recalling our past successes.

In the movie, one of the characters brought this lesson to light.

As she was recounting a recent incident, and how well she’d done, she simultaneously related it to her future by saying, “Because I accomplished that, I can do ANYTHING”.

I can recall when I started my first business venture back in 1996, I said something very similar to myself, and it went like this…

“Because I just spent 7 years working in the most dangerous job in the world, as an Alaska Fisherman, running my own business will be EASY in comparison”.

But, when you think about it, the two have absolutely nothing in common.

Fishing in Alaska has nothing to do with running a business.

The skills required for each are entirely different.

But…

In MY mind, there was NO difference.

Because I accomplished the former, I could accomplish the later as well.

This is a POWERFUL concept, and few people ever pick up on it.

Personally, I owe my mentor, Mr. Matt Furey, for taking the time to drill this concept into my noggin so I can get maximum benefit from it.

Most folks continually look at their past failures, and say to themselves, “Because I failed at that, I’m going to fail at this too”.

I could easily do the same thing – but I choose not to.

I’ve had many failures in my life.

For example, I failed Geometry in high school.

As a result, I could easily say to myself, “Because you failed Geometry, you’re going to fail in business”.

Fact is, if I wanted to believe such a thing, there’s an endless list of failures I could draw from, in order to prove my point.

But I refuse to do that.

Instead, I choose to recall my successes.

I recall my successes, and use them as proof that I can accomplish anything else I set out to do.

It’s simply a matter of making the decision to do so.

I can tell you that recalling your successes is MUCH more productive.

It makes you feel better.

It virtually guarantees your future success in anything you undertake.

And… it gives you a GREAT sense of power.

Try it and you’ll see what I mean.

Take a moment right now and recall a previous success that you’ve had.

Now bring that feeling forward to a project that you’re working on right now – and tell yourself, “Because I was successful in the past, I will be successful NOW”.

See…

I told you.

This is a POWERFUL tool, and now, you can use it any time you choose.

I trust that you will.

Dedicated to your success,
Kevin Thompson

P.S. I’ve got a MAJOR announcement to make in the next week or so. Can’t tell you the exact date yet, but I’ll keep you posted as we move forward.

Funny Baby Tips Video

Safe Baby Handling Tips

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

A couple weeks ago I took Lisa for an extended weekend vacation to Leavenworth, Washington and we stayed at this incredible resort called Run of the River.

If you want to see it for yourself, a quick Google search will take you right to their website.

Anyways…

While we were in Leavenworth, we spent a day browsing the local shops.

One of the things we found during this little adventure was a book called “Safe Baby Handling Tips”.

Now, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of this book, or seen it for yourself, but I’ve got to tell you, this thing is HILLARIOUS.

And rather than simply tell you about it, I’ve decided to make a video so I can SHOW it to you.

I’ll post the video online, either tomorrow or Monday – and I’ll send you another email when it’s ready.

If you want a good laugh, this is a video you won’t want to miss.

Also…

In case you missed yesterday’s email – the one where I introduced you to my friend Joshua Shafran and his “Thin Air Millyunaire” concept, you can still check it out by Going Here.

That email caused quite a buzz, and when you go to the link above, you’ll understand why.

Well, that’s it for now.

I’ll be sure to let you know when I’ve got the “Baby Tips Video” ready for you to see.

Dedicated to your success,
Kevin Thompson

P.S. I’ve been working on another big project as well and can’t wait to let you see what I’ve been up to.

The Game Has Changed

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

I was recently talking with one of my mentors, and we were doing some goal-setting for this year.

During the course of our conversation, he noticed that virtually NONE of my goals were related to money, or creating more income.

Instead, I had goals like:

Use my business to change the lives of 40,000 people this year.

Provide my clients with far more value than they expected to receive.

Continue to have fun and enjoy my business to the fullest.

Meet and make lasting friendships with more movers and shakers in the business world.

After seeing this, he says, “Kevin, I understand where you’re coming from, because I have the same kinds of goals for my own business, but you’re still not leveraging your BIGGEST asset”.

“And what’s that”?, I asked.

“Well”, he goes on, “You’ve got to the point in your life where you’re now associated with some of the most successful and influential people in the business world.

You need to start introducing your members to these people”.

After hearing this, I knew he was right.

Here’s why:

In June of last year, I joined Joe Polish’s Mastermind Group.

As you know, I’m already in Matt Furey’s group and travel to Tampa four times a year to participate in his mastermind meetings.

Adding more travel to my schedule didn’t overly excite me, but Joe and I go back a long ways.

He’s the one who helped me turn my original business (the cleaning company) around, so I already knew the value that he brings to the table.

The interesting thing about Joe’s group isn’t so much the investment.

Yes, at 25 Grand, it’s a substantial investment. But unlike most groups I’ve been a part of, Joe doesn’t allow you to make monthly payments on the fee.

In order to be in the group, you’ve got to give him the 25 Grand – up front.

Now… you might think that’s crazy, but Joe’s got a method to his madness.

He doesn’t want anyone in the group who can’t afford to write a check that large.

And I have to admit, even though I’ve known Joe for a long time now – I seriously wondered if it would be worth the investment. Isn’t it funny how our mind thinks that way at times?

Anyways, here it is, less than a year later, and I’m no longer having those thoughts.

Since being a member of Joe’s group, I’ve had the pleasure to meet some of the most incredible, forward thinking people on the planet.

My income has increased as a result of being in this group.

My lifestyle has improved.

The relationship I have with friends, family and business contacts has been taken to a whole new level.

And most importantly – the way I now “think” is entirely different.

If you read my emails regularly, you’ve noticed a HUGE change in the way I communicate with you.

You’ve been the direct beneficiary of the mastermind groups I’m in, the people I’ve met and the way of “thinking” that has come from it.

And now – I’m about to take things to an even HIGER level for you.

I recently had a phone conversation with a gentleman I met in Joe’s group. I won’t tell you his name, but if I were to do so, you’d immediately know who he is.

During this conversation he was asking me some VERY personal questions about my business.

You see, the two of us were getting ready to work on a big project together, and he needed to get an idea of how we should best approach things.

One of the questions he asked was, “How much money did you make last year”?

When I gave him the answer, his response shocked me

Upon hearing the figure he said, “Well Kev, the good news is, you’ve got MASSIVE room for improvement”.

Talk about an eye-opener. Truth is, I did quite well last year, especially when you consider the economic climate. Yet here’s this guy telling me that I’ve got massive room for improvement.

Let me ask you something – when was the last time someone told you that.

Have you ever shared with someone the success you were having (as you think to yourself that you’re doing REALLY well) and had them respond by saying, “The good news is, you’ve got massive room for improvement”?

My guess is that you’ve never had such an experience. Or, if you did, it shocked you, just as it shocked me.

Yet I’m hear to tell you, in my world, this is becoming common place.

And now – I’m going to give you a “back stage pass” to this incredible world of movers and shakers.

But, before I do, I need to make sure that the two of us are on the same wave length.

I need to make sure that we’ve got a connection.

I need to make sure that we’re “thinking” in the same manner.

So… let me tell you what I’ve discovered about these ultra successful business owners that I’ve had the privilege of spending so much time with. The same people I’m about to introduce YOU to.

More importantly, allow me to give you a glimpse into how they “think”

They’re firmly convinced that they’re operating on a different level than the majority of the population. Now, this is not to say that they think they’re better than anyone else. They simply believe that they possess information and contacts that the majority of people do not possess, and as a result, they have a HUGE advantage.

They believe that they’re on a mission to use their businesses to help as many people as they possibly can. Their #1 goal is NOT making money. They already have nice incomes, their families are provided for – and now, their gratification comes from helping others. And, it doesn’t matter what their business sells.

They believe that money is attracted – NOT made. Talk about a shift in mindset. And the truth is, I’ve come to believe the same thing. Being a part of Matt Furey’s Mastermind Group, he began teaching me this concept several years ago. It was a little bit challenging for me to accept at first, but now I’ve proven it to be true. In fact, I could tell you countless stories of how money has been attracted into my life.

They believe that they’re in control of their own destiny. And as a result, they don’t spend time thinking about the recession that the media keeps telling us about. Now don’t get me wrong, they realize that things are going on around us, but they also understand that they possess specialized knowledge and systems for selling and doing business. These systems are proven and produce profitable results… EVEN during a recession.

They’re tied into a network of people and have access to legitimately useful “how to” information on what’s working NOW for others in the group. The relationship with these peers causes them to believe that they can do anything, and accomplish anything, regardless of outside circumstances. And why wouldn’t it. When you’re continually surrounded by peers who are having such success, it motivates you, and lets you know that you can do the same. Especially when you have the help of these peers.

At this point, I’m sure you understand why I want to introduce you to these incredible friends of mine.

More importantly, I’m sure you understand why it’s in YOUR best interest to meet them.

So…

Keep an eye on your inbox, because the game has now changed.

From this point forward, you’re going to be meeting and rubbing shoulders with the movers and shakers of the business world.

I look forward to introducing you to them.

Dedicated to your success,
Kevin Thompson

Hotel Conversations

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

If you’ve been with me for any period of time, you’ve heard me talk about Matt Furey on many occasions.

Many of you have asked what it’s like to spend time with a guy like Matt. Problem is – I still haven’t found words that can accurately describe it.

In fact, one of my long-time clients, David Gruttadaurio recently joined Matt’s group and attended his first Mastermind Meeting in January of this year.

When the meeting came to an end, David and I were talking in the lobby of the hotel, and I asked him, “So, what did you think of your first weekend with Matt”?

He said, “Kevin, you’ve been talking about Matt for years now, and in that time, I’ve watched as your business has grown like crazy.

Yet every time I asked you about his Mastermind Group, and what it was like – I felt like you never gave me a straight answer.

To be honest, I thought you were holding out on me.

But…

After experiencing it for myself, I now understand why you had such a difficult time answering my question.

How can we possibly explain what happened here this weekend?

It can’t be done.

There’s no way to put it into words.

The only way that a person can understand, is to spend time with Matt themselves”.

And let me tell you, David was right.

Simply telling you that the time I spend with Matt is “incredible” doesn’t do this question justice.

So…

After giving this a lot of thought (and asking Matt for a personal favor), I’ve finally come up with the perfect answer.

To find out what it is, Go Here.

How Could This Happen

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Eric Guttmann recently sent me an email, and he had one heck of a story to share.

Here it is:

Dear Kevin,Thanks for including me on today’s training call.So far it has been a hell of a ride, with most of the time me wondering what the hell I am doing. HA! :) Something interesting happened and I believe that you touched upon it in today’s call.When you prepare for better things and take bold steps in that direction stuff happens.I recently learned that I will be filling an O-5 billet at Commander Fourth Fleet in Mayport, FL.OK, here’s the big deal about that… I AM AN O-3!How in the word did I end up in a billet TWO pay grades above my own?To put that in perspective, in my last tour as an O-3 I was flying missions over Iraq and over the world.

The O-5 in my squadron was THE SKIPPER.

That’s right he was responsible for all squadron aircraft all over the world.Needless to say I am going to have to bust my butt to grow into the big shoes I am going to fill.Yet there is a part of me that believes that if I had not taken the steps to get my info-publishing career off the ground perhaps I would be looking at another set of orders.The Law of Attraction is NOTHING without the Law of Practice.We attract opportunities and events commensurate with our level of development and the person we have become. Thanks for being a part of that process.Very respectfully, Eric Guttmann

Let me tell you, Eric is right.

We DO “attract” opportunities.

We also “attract” munee, relationships, success and every other good thing into our life.

And contrary to popular belief, we can do this at will.

My mentor, Mr. Matt Furey, taught me this principle some time ago, and once he did – my life was forever changed.

If you’re ready to unlock your own “Super Human Success” so you can have the same kind of experiences in your own life, Go Here right now.

It’s The Environment… Baby

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

If you’ve been reading my emails over the last few days you know that the “Super Human Success” event with Matt Furey is taking place very soon.

You also know that this is a FIRST.

Matt has never done anything like this before.

If you want to join us, you must go here ASAP
http://www.AutomaticIncomeSystem.com/matt.html

Last Saturday night, Lisa and I went out for dinner with some friends we hadn’t seen in some time.

While at dinner, they were commenting on what a happy baby Brock was.

What made this remark so interesting was the fact that we had just returned home from an all day trip.

We’d got up that morning, and decided to take a trip over to Leavenworth, Washington – which is about a 2-hour drive, each way.

We left our home that morning around 8am, and returned home about 5:30 in the evening – just in time to meet our friends for dinner.

Needless to say, it was a long day, and most children Brock’s age wouldn’t have faired very well on such a trip.

Yet Brock had a great time, and even at the end of the day, he was all smiles.

Go here and see for yourself
http://www.AutomaticIncomeSystem.com/environment.html

That evening, on the way home from dinner, Lisa and I were talking about the comment our friends had made – the one about Brock being such a happy baby.

And that’s the truth. He’s IS a very happy baby.

The reason for this is due to his environment.

He’s surrounded by parents and family who love him.

He’s encouraged to explore his world, and discover new things.

He’s praised on a regular basis.

It’s no surprise that he is the way he is.

He’s got an environment that’s incredibly positive.

When I look back on my own life, my parents raised me the same way.

But…

Once I got out on my own, and was exposed to a different environment, things began to change.

And they changed for the worse.

Maybe you can relate.

You see – when we’re constantly bombarded by negative comments from friends, family, and co-workers, we soon begin to believe what they say.

We make the mistake of taking their words as gospel, and when we do, it has a devastating effect on our belief system.

But…

When we surround ourselves with forward thinking people who want to see us at our best, the result is completely different.

We accomplish things that we once thought impossible.

We effortlessly attract munee into our life.

Relationships with those closest to us improve, almost as if by magic.

I realize – if you’ve never experienced this for yourself, what I’m saying may be difficult to believe.

But…

If you have had such experiences in the past, you already know that what I’m saying is 100% true.

Either way, you now have the opportunity to put my words to the test.

On Thursday – March 12th, you have the opportunity to meet my mentor – Mr. Matt Furey.

This is a one-time event, and make no doubt about it – your life will be changed, and it will be changed in an INSTANT.

Go here now, and put me to the test

P.S. Outside of his coaching groups, Matt is rarely available for events like this. And on those rare occasions that he does have an opening, his daily fee runs between $10,000.00 – $25,000.00. Needless to say, this is your opportunity of a lifetime, so don’t miss it

Accosted At The Post Office

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Before we get started, let me remind you that the “Super Human Success” event with Matt Furey is just around the corner.

If you want to join us, you must Go Here ASAP.

Last Thursday afternoon I had to take some packages to the post office, and as I was walking toward the front door, an over-zealous guy nearly bowls me over.

He steps directly into my path, forcing me to come to a stop, and then says, “Let me tell you my plan for saving the economy”.

I reply, “Can’t you see that I have an arm full of packages”?

After hearing this, he decides to step aside – at least momentarily.

But, in doing so, he says, “I’ll talk with you on your way out”.

And make no doubt about it, as soon as I went to exit the post office, this guy was all over me.

He was determined to give me his opinion on the economy, and let me know what we should do about it.

As I listened to him talk, I could tell that he was coming from a complete state of fear.

And the problem is, when you’re operating from a state of fear, nothing good can possibly come from it.

I oughta know, cause at one point in my life, I was constantly in a state of fear.

And now…

Thanks to the media, lots of people are fearful right now.

In fact, many folks have buried their heads in the sand, hoping that everything will just “blow over”.

The sooner – the better.

Yet my take on this is completely different.

I’m not burying my head in the sand.

I’m not waiting for things to “blow over”.

I’m not expecting our government to provide for my family.

No SIREE.

Instead, I’ve taken matters into my own hands.

Over the last 12-18 months, due to everything that’s been going on in the economy, I decided that I had to change my game strategy.

That’s what successful people do.

We don’t keep doing things the way we have in the past, and then blame the economy (or the government) because the game has changed.

And that’s exactly what’s happened.

The game has changed.

And those of us still playing to win, have had to change our game strategy in order to keep on winning.

Here’s a perfect example:

As you know, I’m in Matt Furey’s Mastermind Group, and have been since 2004.

Last year, another guy in the group was having some serious challenges because of the economy.

His business had taken a SERIOUS hit, and now he was only making a fraction of what he used to be making.

Needless to say, his world was crashing in on top of him, and as a result, it was next to impossible for him to think clearly and come up with a new game plan.

He was slipping into a state of fear, and truth is, faced with the same situation, I can’t say that I would’ve reacted any differently.

Fortunately, I have Matt to turn to when things like this happen, and so did he.

Matt was able to look at his situation objectively and tell him precisely what to do.

With Matt’s help, they laid out a new game plan, and now he’s right back on top.

Yes, you heard me right.

It’s just as if he barely missed a beat.

But…

I can also assure you, if it weren’t for Matt, things wouldn’t have worked out so well.

And let me tell you, I’ve had similar experiences with Matt.

Without him, I would not be the person I am today.

And now, for the first time ever, you have the opportunity to meet my mentor for yourself.

Matt has agreed to host a private seminar for YOU, and it’s happening on Thursday – March 12th.

There’s no charge to participate, but you do need to register by Going Here.

If you’re ready to discover YOUR Super Human Success, this is an event that you won’t want to miss.

Dedicated to your success,
Kevin Thompson

When Nothing Goes Right

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Ever have one of those days when nothing seems to go right?

Heck, I’ve had days, months and even years where nothing seemed to go right.

When I started my first business, back in 1996, I did nothing but struggle to eek out a living for the first year.

No matter what I did, I couldn’t figure out how to make a profit in that business.

I worked my tail off – 14-16 hours a day, yet come the end of every month, there wasn’t any munee left to pay myself.

And let me tell you, it was REALLY frustrating.

I could have gone broke easier if I’d just sat on the couch watching Oprah.

Fortunately, a friend of mine introduced me to a man who would change my life.

And in the process, he taught me a valuable lesson.

If you want to know how to do something, all you have to do is follow the lead of someone who’s already done what you want to accomplish.

That was a lesson I’ve never forgot.

And…

When it comes to making munee on the internet, I owe my success to a gentleman by the name of Matt Furey.

Matt has shown me how to make lots and lots of munee with my online business.

But more importantly, he helped me discover the secret of “Super Human Success”.

Matt taught me how to unleash the power that was already inside of me, and use this power to accomplish anything that my heart desired.

If you’ve been with me for any period of time, you’ve heard me talk about Matt on MANY occasions.

But…

This is the first time I’ve ever had the opportunity to personally introduce you to him.

As a favor to me, Matt has agreed to host a private training seminar for YOU.

If you’re ready to unleash YOUR “Super Human Success”, here’s your opportunity.

Go Here right now and register for this one-time event.

There’s no charge to participate, but you must register in order to attend.

As soon as you’ve registered, I’ll send you all the details you need in order to join us for this unique training seminar.

I look forward to introducing you to my good friend, and mentor – Mr. Matt Furey.

Dedicated to your success,
Kevin Thompson
