It is so gosh darn subtle…
The move of a MASTER…
The way they FLOW…
The way they coax…
The way they POSSES the HEART of the onlooker.
One day a little over 5 years ago I got an email from the MASTER that I hoped
to persuade to be my mentor.
He said to me…You must come to a get together Diane.
You must sit with GIANTS and observe them
For most of what you want to acquire can not be taught via phone (let alone webinar)
Most of what you want to posses is an attitude..a vibe…a BEING
And so I went…scared to death to sit at a dinner with a dozen powerful business owners.
Petrified that I would have a slip of the tongue and reveal that I was nothing more than a housewife.
I was sure that they would reject me…
But instead they embraced me and one by one they shared secrets and moves that had made them MILLIONS
But in the end it was still only the original master that I had traveled to see that interested me as a teacher.
Because he was the Master of the masters.
And what I didn’t know was that that evening was my AUDITION
The test to see if I had what it takes.
And he had decided that I did…and my lessons began the next morning.
And like a kid on the first day of kindergarten I showed up eager to learn and full of excitement.
And like a child..time and time again I was CORRECTED over the course of years until FINALLY I had acquired the code myself.
And today I am able to wield it.
I have been very successful and for this I am THANKFUL…
And I spend my days doing all I can to find the people that I can pass this along to.
So now for my advice to you dear reader…
Look for the subtlety…
Look for the masterful.
There will ALWAYS be young brash gladiators who will enter the field and conquer for a while.
They seem young, and sexy and successful…
I always looked for the old sage.
The one who had been in the game 10, 15, or better yet 20 years.
The one who had seen it all and had survived to tell the tales.
The ones with the WISDOM.
And the one who didn’t need to attract attention as they were power embodied.
This is so hard to understand for some…
Like I said..it is SUBTLE.
While I was going through my schooling I often asked why my master didn’t go for the ‘easy” money
Why he didn’t do a quick pitch or write a masterful sales letter as there are few who can do it quite like him…
I couldn’t understand why he would pass up such riches.
And he explained that when one TRANSCENDS the need to take money from people and moves into true STATEMANSHIP is when
his legacy will be secured.
If you KNOW you can attract a raving crowd on demand…there is no longer need to do so…
There is only need to SERVE.
And if you look around…
This industry has a lot of hot shots
A lot of big earners
A lot of “gurus”
But VERY FEW statesmen (this is not a gender specific term)
I can count them on both of my hands.
These people…and their faithful students
These are the ones that will teach you the CODE that lasts forever…
That will be here long after Facebook is gone (and I promise you that it WILL be gone someday)
What will you study in 2011?
It’s almost here you know.
In a blink of an eye.
What will you focus your efforts on?
A passing fad or timeless wisdom?
How to do a computer trick or how to get people to eat out of the palm of your hand?
The choice is YOURS…
But at least now you have an idea of the choices that sit in front of you.
I wish you much success in your quest.
And if I can serve you at all…
Let me know.
