I released the first version of the Automatic Income System in 2004, and since that time, we’ve sold more than three thousand copies.
While the overwhelming majority of people love this product, and the life-changing information it offers, there’s a small percentage of the population who have returned it for a refund, saying that it’s nothing more than hogwash, and a waste of time.
The first time someone sent me a negative review of the Automatic Income System, I made the mistake of taking it personally, and even went so far as to question the value of what I had to offer.
But as time went on, it became increasingly obvious that these nay-sayers were the minority… NOT the majority.
For a long time, I wondered, “How can two people receive the exact identical product, yet have such widely differing opinions about it”?
The good news is, that over time, I’ve come up with a VERY good answer to this question.
And the answer has absolutely NOTHING to do with the product itself.
In all cases, the product was the same, other than the fact that I’ve updated it over the years.
The difference lies in the person who receives the product, and here’s my take on it:
One person comes from a place of abundance, while the other comes from a place of scarcity.
And it just so happens that a real life example of what I’m talking about unfolded on the blog last week.
I had shared some insight into how I go about achieving my own goals, while simultaneously enjoying my life to the fullest in the here and now.
Two of the people that commented were Ro and Joseph.
This truly resonates with me.
Over 30 years ago, as a second lieutenant, I wrote down my goals for the future: to make major below the zone, to attend war college, to get a masters degree, to make colonel, to retire somewhere spectacular and wild, to become a US Senator.
I made major 3 yrs below the zone (early) and Lt col 2 yrs early, and col 2 yrs early, then passed the goal to earn a star.
I got a masters degree on scholarship at full pay, retired from the Air Force in Alaska, and decided politics was not for me.
So, I met or exceeded all those goals, or decided on learning more that it wasn’t for me.
My vision for retirement was to continue working on something that made a difference, build my dream log home, have horses, and eventually work for myself.
Now I work on launching rockets for NASA, flying unmanned aircraft for science and civil support, and constructing an icebreaker for the university.
I moved into my log home last year, will soon plant my first garden there and move my horse to the property, and have begun planning to move from employment to my own coaching business and professional cat breeding.
Part of that goal is to develop streams of income that are independent of each other and independent of government budget decisions – and so your program, Kevin, is on my plan, along with learning to build and maintain my various websites, or at least maintain them, for each endeavor.
My life is testimony to the principle that if you dream it and keep the dream in view as the many decisions of life come along, you will achieve the dream and better.
Best wishes to all just starting out, and thanks, Kevin, for the chance to post this.
One thing that everyone forgets is that even people who can not work outside of their home due to a disability or handicap, will look online for work, however, those who are in such poor state of being can not afford to pay to join some group and pay for web hosting fees, advertising, or membership fees.
They simply do not have the income to get started.
And even if they do and become the greatest online worker ever, they can not afford to keep doing it because the cost of doing it eats up the profit and then they can not pay their rent and medical costs, and transportation costs, and food cost and utility bills etc.
So it is a rat race of banging your head against a brick wall in hopes of finding something that will allow them to make a little extra money to make life better for them and their friends and family without going deeper in debt.
So if you ever find a free system that is totally without cost, please let me know.
= = =
I don’t personally know Ro or Joseph, but I can most certainly tell you that one has an abundance mentality, and the other has a scarcity mentality.
So let me ask you, where are you coming from?
What kind of mentality do you have – abundance or scarcity?
Because the fact is, the choice is completely up to you.
Hope this gives you some insight.
Dedicated to your success,
“The Automatic Income Coach”
P.S. Perry Marshall sent out a similar email to his subscribers last week, talking about this very same subject matter. If you’re on his list too (as I am), hopefully you’ll get the lesson… because it’s a biggie.
