1. The One-Minute TIP

There is no magic and there is no "secret" to success! But
there are principles and processes that some people know and
apply. And unfortunately, too many people either don' know
them, don't understand them, or don't apply the principles
so they struggle and often fail to achieve their dreams.
Fortunately, you can learn the techniques and use them for
the rest of your life!

2. Welcome Notes

Fall has come, with it's rain and fog and while that may not
strike most people as exciting, I find it invigorating. I
love the fog in the trees during my morning walk. The rain
reduces the temptation to go out and play. And the sound of
rain outside my window soothes me to sleep at night. By the
time you read this the sun will probably be back and we'll
be celebrating the glory of some temporary summer weather,
and that will be good, too. But for today, I'm writing to
the cadence of rain on my window and that's a good thing!

Perhaps the rain doesn't bother me because I'm excited about
my new Science of Success program. You can read more about
it below, but in essence I've distilled the process of
success into a SYSTEM that can be applied to help you
achieve any goal, every time. A few years ago, Jack Canfield
wrote a huge (and wonderful!) book called "The Success
Principles." One of my mentors, Jim Rohn said, "Success is
the predictable result of consistently applying the
fundamentals." I've always thought that was HUGE!

Why do some people consistently achieve one success after
another? Some singers have one hit after another. Some sales
people rise to the top, while others never have any "luck."
Some people achieve one goal after another, while others
never quite seem to "get there." What's the secret? What's
the difference?

After almost 30 years of study and putting the pieces
together, I've discovered it really is a science, a
repeatable, reliable process that you can use any time you
choose and I'm eager to teach you! I hope you'll join me!

3: The New Science of Success!

Several years ago, someone said we were in the "age of
anxiety." Little did they know! During the past couple of
years savings and retirement plans have shrunk, millions of
homes are "under water" (what a terrible image that is!),
debt and deficits have soared, unemployment is far too high,
and "anxiety" has taken on a whole new meaning! I think it's
a tremendous testimony to human courage that many of us
endure and do as well as we do! These are tough times.

But not for everyone. Even in the worst recession in 70
years, millions of people continue to achieve one success
after another. Often it's in business and they are still
making sales, growing their business and finding ways to
prosper in the midst of bad times. Millions of people go
right on achieving their personal goals of fitness, family
life, spiritual peace, learning new skills or writing the
novel they've always wanted to write. How do they do it?

Whatever their personal dream, some people have found the
"secret" to achieving their goals no matter what the
external circumstances.

I assume they may have had to adjust or adapt to this new
world situation. In some cases, they may find it "harder" or
slower or they may have to find a new "way to get there,"
but some people seem to thrive no matter what. Some people
have "all the luck!" Some achieve their financial goals even
in hard times. How do they do it?

There is no magic and there is no "secret!" But there are
principles and processes that some people know and apply.
And unfortunately, too many people don't know them, don't
understand them, or don't apply the principles and so they
struggle and often fail to achieve their dreams.

Is there really a "recipe" for success? I think so!

Is it really universal? Does it really work for anyone and
let them achieve virtually any goal? Yes, I think so!

There are reliable, repeatable systems and processes that,
when understood and applied properly, can help you save for
the future, invest well, enjoy a happy family, write a novel
or run a marathon. These powerful, universal techniques have
been used by successful people in every area of life. These
tools will help you raise a teenager, maintain your health,
start a business, develop more patience or even run for
political office! These PRINCIPLES and TECHNIQUES make all
the difference!

And two miraculous truths: (1) They are not a "secret!" They
have been known, taught and used through the ages! And (2)
they can be used by anyone who desires to learn and apply

You can find them in books and audio programs--often free at
your local library. You can learn them from a good mentor or
coach. But if you want the ultimate in convenience, please
join me for 8 weeks this fall. I'll be teaching them in a
series of live, weekly teleclasses. I'll give them to you
as a series of mini-ebooks and as recordings so you'll
have the info forever and can review it as often as you
wish. We'll talk about them so you really "GET IT!" We'll
answer your questions and you can test them in real life to
prove to yourself that they work. And if you get stuck or
confused, we'll coach you!

I hope you'll step up. Make the investment. Learn the skills
that will let you achieve your goals and dreams for the rest
of your life! We begin next week, so take action TODAY! Get

5. Strictly Business: Repeat Customers or Raving Fans?

This past Wednesday I interrupted my schedule, pulled off a
busy street, drove around the block and went back to see if
my eyes were playing tricks on me. I had glimpsed a small
sidewalk banner with the name of a company I thought was out
of business. I pulled into a busy shopping mall, drove
around, and finally spotted the business. They were open and
I immediately found a parking spot, got out, walked over and
bought a sandwich.

Yup. All that for a chicken sandwich.

But, you see, it's no ordinary sandwich. It's a "Cart de
Frisco" chicken sandwich and it's fantastic. It's huge--a
real "two-hander" and it's messy. It's got sauces that drip
on my shirt and run down my hands. It's hot and spicy and
gives me heartburn. It's "to die for" and it's served with
flair, humor and enthusiasm.

Twenty years ago, a Cambodian refugee came to Eugene with
nothing. But he had this idea for a spicy chicken sandwich,
which is rumored to have over 50 ingredients crowded onto a
Kaiser bun. He didn't have any money for a restaurant, so he
sold them from a cart on the sidewalk and when I worked
downtown, it was not unusual to see a dozen people lined up,
waiting in the Oregon rain for their sandwich.

Do people wait in the rain to do business with you? This guy
served them with a smile and with "attitude." He made people
laugh, he made them glad to do business with him.

Wednesday, I learned that he had been ill and that's why his
carts had disappeared for a while, but now he's back and
once again, people are lined up for his chicken sandwiches.

I've never seen any advertising for his little business.
I've never known him to do any "marketing." But he now
drives a Cadillac and he's done quite well for himself.
Another "over-night sensation!"

His cute little cart, his delicious sandwich, and his
extraordinary attitude have created thousands of raving fans
here in Eugene. Can you say that about your business? Why

Create raving fans. They will make you rich.

You see, he knows the "secret" of success! He understands
the principles and has a system. He persists and trusts the
universal, historic path that has worked for millions of
people, and it's working for him as well. Want to know his
"secret?" Join me at:

was the one essential behind every successful person he
interviewed! And yet very few people create a Mastermind
team to help them achieve their most important goals in
life! Now you can! Most people donít know how or they fear
they wouldnít know who to ask. Now, Iíve written the manual!
Iíve create a recipe so you can create your own MasterMind

and how often to meet. Iíve even included simple scripts to
get you started. Check it out!

If success is important to you, you deserve a MasterMind

#4 Make Your Website Work BETTER!
Earn Passive Income!

Over the years, I've paid lots of money for shopping carts,
autoresponders and systems that were supposed to help me
serve my subscribers and make money from my website. They
all worked (sort of), but they were complex, confusing and
didn't work very well. Then I discovered Don Schnure and the
amazing programs he's put together. They work! They are
powerful, EASY to use, and they let me automate my
newsletter, my affiliate programs and my shopping cart, with
no hassle! I love this! And, you can use it for 30 days to
check it out. Highly recommended! (Full disclosure -- I earn
a commission if you sign up for 1Automation, but I've used
it for years and recommend it because it's worked really,
really well for me.)

7. Humor: Best (and Tragic) Headlines

We all know that bad news and tragedy make headlines, so
once in a while itís nice to see some humorous headlines,
intentional or otherwise. Most of these have been around for
a long time, so I make no guarantees that they ever actually
appeared in any newspaper. I only promise that they sound
plausible and that theyíll make you chuckle. Enjoy.

Something Went Wrong
in Jet Crash, Expert Says
[no, really?]

Police Begin Campaign
to Run Down Jaywalkers
[Isn't that a bit harsh?]

Panda Mating Fails;
Veterinarian Takes Over
[what a guy!]

Miners Refuse to Work
after Death
[no-good-for-nothin' lazy so-and-so's!]

Juvenile Court to
Try Shooting Defendant
[see if that works better than a fair trial!]

War Dims Hope
for Peace
[I can see where it might have that effect!]

If Strike Isn't Settled Quickly,
It May Last Awhile
[you think?!]

Cold Wave Linked
to Cooler Temperatures
[who would have thought!]

Enfield (London) Couple Slain;
Police Suspect Homicide
[they may be on to something!]

Man Struck By Lightning
Faces Battery Charge
[he probably IS the battery charge!]

Astronaut Takes Blame
for Gas in Spacecraft
[That's what he gets for eating those beans!]

Kids Make Nutritious Snacks
[Maybe they taste like chicken?]

Hospitals are Sued
by 7 Foot Doctors
[Boy, are they tall!]

And the winner is...

Typhoon Rips Through
Cemetery; Hundreds Dead

wonder-FULL week!
