How To Not Suck (more radical honesty)

I’ve been very inspired over the holidays to finally stop pulling punches. It’s time to kick some ass and take some names.

For those of you with ADHD that can’t patiently read my stuff, this email/post is about how you can partner with me in my new “holy grail” businesses. Real partners, not just thinly diguised affiliate programs. More on that in a bit…


Radical Honesty

I discovered a cool blog last week and found myself READING EVERY WORD. It’s from a guy name James Altucher.

I’d never heard of him until last week but I love this dude. He’s the type that you’ll either love or hate. The reason is because of his radical honesty, both about himself and others. He’s funny and though I don’t agree with everything he says, I love his writing.

His style has inspired me to finally stop being so PC and really do what I want to do, help people.

Unfortunately most people need to be told what to do all the time. Even those that don’t could use an ass kicking once in a while.

So, from now on I’m be the “remote ass kicker” and really get people to move off dead center and make it big.

So, let’s start with what holds you back.
1) Fear of the unknown
2) Fear of success
3) Fear of failure
4) Fear of everything else

With so much fear there is no action taken. You get frozen and can’t even take a step.

You need a REAL call to action.

You are afraid. No biggie. Just get over yourself and take some steps. Success is usually only an inch away amazingly.

I talked a lot about fear in a previous post so I won’t go too much into that again. You can read all about that here. (Make sure to download my fear-smashing PDF.)

Hell even I have fear sometimes so I KNOW it’s universal. But if you have the tools then fear is easy to dispatch.

How To Not Suck

Once you actually start taking some action you need a path to follow. Without that, you’ll eventually get lost and fear and inaction will return.

So, in order to not be afraid, not suck and not fail AGAIN, all you need is three things:
1) Action
2) Action
3) Action
4) Holy Grail

Oh wait, that’s 4 things. My math is bad. πŸ™‚

Action removes fear.
Holy grail gives you confidence.
Confidence removes fear.

Action + Holy Grail = Success

Success removes even more fear and you all of a sudden don’t suck and you become UNSTOPPABLE! (For those of you that don’t read my stuff more often and are wondering what the hell I mean by “holy grail” just go here.)

The Holy Grail(s)

I’ve been trying to figure out how to partner with my readers for a while now. Not some lame affiliate program that allows you to “partner” with me. I mean a real partnership where we work together to grow a real business and we split the profits.

It’s been hard for me to figure out for obvious reasons. You need to trust partners. I didn’t want to get stuck giving away the farm while my new partners did nothing yet kept half the money. Plus how in the world do you scale to an unlimited number of partners while maintaining focus?

Finally I had to drop my ego and kick my own ass a bit and just say screw it. If people want to lie, cheat and steal my time, energy and money then let them. They’ll weed themselves out and the cream will rise to the top.

As far as scaling goes, I’ll let the partners manage that. (Those details coming later.)

So, what in the world am I talking about?

I’m opening up my businesses to all of you to partner with me. I’m talking about businesses that already work, already make big money, already are tested. They just need you to get in and drive.

These businesses already are doing six figures or more EACH for me and/or my friends. No theory. All real. I provide whatever you don’t have (people, funds, scaling, expertise, etc.) You run it and we split the profits.

Pretty simple. (Of course you have to provide a MINIMUM of half the work or resources needed.)

Here’s the best part: It’s free.

BUT…and this is a BIG BUT, you have to prove yourself. I don’t need my time wasted any more than you do so you have to jump through a couple hoops.

For a long time the only way I could have people “prove” themselves was via buying products or paying me money somehow.

This has proven to be a REALLY bad way to filter people. It’s better than nothing but ultimately very bad.

Luckily I found a brilliant way for me to test your mindset, work ethic and partner potential.

This is the Call To Action.

Time to not suck and finally achieve big things.

If you want to partner with me and finally make it big both financially and in life then watch for tomorrow’s email/post for more details.
Talk soon,
P.S. Set aside an hour on Thursday evening because I’m going to explain it all then via teleconference.

Details tomorrow.

Let’s partner in 2012 and make it your biggest year ever.

Hey Matt,

Totally agree…PC’ness is dead. Long live free speech and trigger pulling. Double tap everything…even if she’s an 7 πŸ™‚

No really…Get people center one side the fence or the other….we have a nation of zombies. It takes some very unique thinking and directions to steer those that want it…not the ones that need it. WANT and MUST have success.

Go crush 2012 brother!

YEARS ago….. I had lunch with someone we all know and it finally HIT me while we were chatting, I felt like Gary V gave me the green light to be ME, to unleash hell and not give a shit what others thoughts…. that’s when the corner turned and success came easier than ever

I always wanted to be ME, I just needed, for some odd reason, someone telling me to go ahead and be me and it’s ok to be different and NOT conform….. NICE!

I used to worry what people though of me, now I never blink an eye… gooooood shit, Matt, NO more PC – gotta bitch slap peeps when ya gots to!!!

From Matt: Haha! Nice! πŸ™‚

Cool deal~ I was on the call tonight and it was great. I learned a bunch and now I am scrambling to find a way to get enough together to buy Michael’s course. It sounds like it will be transformational.

And I would love to be able to work with you and finally realize my dreams by working in and being a part of something big. Something I can be proud of and that I can make a difference in the world, in my life and for those around me. Hopefully more!

Good Things!!!
