TAMMY LAWMAN: Thank you for taking time out to share with our audience. We really
appreciate it. We’ll jump right into it. Tell us: why do people hold themselves back from
the success they’re capable of?
NOAH ST. JOHN: That really is the $11 billion question, Tammy. The reason I say it’s the
$11 billion question is because that is the amount of money that people spend on self-help, personal development and money-making programs every year in this country. It’s actually going up every year. People are spending a lot of money. For everyone listening,
I want you to just think about it in this way.
Think about how much money you’ve spent personally on different self-help programs over the last couple of years. In fact, I call most of it shelf-help. Many people have a lot of shelf-help. That’s a problem. Take a look at the shelf right now. If you’re listening in your living room or in work area, you probably have a shelf with a lot of things like that right now. That’s a problem because you’re not getting the real benefit from these programs.
That’s what I call shelf-help. Many people in the media have called my formula the cure for shelf-help. Tammy, today I want to give people real strategies and techniques that they can put to use immediately in their lives and in their businesses. That’s really what we talk about. When you look at why some people hold themselves back from success, it’s a very vexing problem.
On the one hand, people are driving down the road of life, and they want to get to where they’re going. That’s why they’re spending this money and investing in it. That’s why you’re listening to this phone call and conversation right now. It’s because you want to get something. You want to get somewhere, just like driving your car. You want to go there, so you have your foot on the gas.
At the very same moment that you have your foot on the gas pedal, many people also have their other foot slammed on the brake. Of course, I’m using an analogy, but it’s actually a very good analogy, and it’s very accurate. I would suggest people think about their own experience. Think about the fact that you probably invested your hard-earned money in all these different programs, but for many people, they’re still frustrated.
They’re still thinking, “Why haven’t I gotten to where I really want to go?” The answer is that you have one foot on the brake and one foot on the gas. Today I’m going to show you exactly why that happens and then I’m going to give you some real world strategies to fix that problem. Then at the end I’m going to show you exactly how you can get even more information.
We have a very limited time today. For those of you who are interested in taking more steps in getting your foot off the brake even more and accelerating your results even faster, there’s a great program that we’re going to offer you today. I’m actually going to give it to you at an unbelievable discount. It’s really an amazing deal that we put together for you today.
TAMMY LAWMAN: Noah, before we spill all the beans about that great deal, let’s talk about why success comes naturally for some people while other people struggle with it.
NOAH ST. JOHN: That’s a great question, Tammy, because that’s what so many people come to me with. Every day I get emails from around the world from people who are just like the people on this call. They’re smart, hardworking, and intelligent. They’re motivated, and they want to succeed, but they’re feeling frustrated. They’re feeling a little angry because they’ve spent a lot of money on shelf-help.
They don’t want to do that. They don’t want to hold themselves back. That’s why they’re investing their hard-earned money and time. It’s so they can get out of their own way, but nobody has given them the real world information that’s going to enable them to do that. I realized that. This is where my background comes from. I’m exactly like that. That’s who I am. That’s why I know this feeling very well.
That’s where I came from. To tell you briefly about my story, I grew up poor in a wealthy
neighborhood. I wondered why my parents were always arguing about money and the fact that we didn’t have any. The hard part about that was that my parents worked really hard. Both my mom and my dad did. My dad probably worked 80 or 90 hours a week. They owned a small theater company and an advertising agency.
They did a lot of things. They were working so hard, but we just never had any money. It was very confusing to me as a little kid to see this. Why did my parents work so hard? They were sacrificing and doing all of these things, but we didn’t have money. There were so many other people around who didn’t seem to work as hard, and they had lots of money. They had lots of things. They drove nice cars.
They had new clothes. They had food. That was something we didn’t have sometimes. We’d eat macaroni and cheese for two weeks at a time because that’s all we could afford. From the time I was a little kid, I asked, “Why is it different for some?” I realized after a long time that it didn’t have anything to do with intelligence or hard work. It didn’t have to do with a lot of things that we’d been told.
That was really aggravating because I had to spend so many years of my life and probably over $100,000 to get these answers. I finally realized after many years and maybe $250,000 that something that wasn’t explained to me at all. There are two groups of people who exist in the world. One group is what I call the naturals. They’re the naturals of success. What does it mean to be a natural?
To be a natural means that you don’t hold yourself back from the success that you’re capable of. For all intents and purposes, you don’t have your foot on the brake like most of the people I was just talking about, which is by far the majority of us. There are the naturals of success. That’s the tiny minority of people who don’t stop themselves from success. In just a few minutes I’m going to show you exactly what’s going on in their brains.
I’m also going to show you how you can be a natural, even if you aren’t a natural. The other group is the rest of us. The rest of us are working hard. We’re motivated. We want to succeed. We just haven’t been given the tools that the naturals have. Right now I’m going to reveal the big secret of the naturals. This is something that took me more than 20 years to figure out. Nobody told me because they couldn’t tell me.
The big secret is that…
