As of September 17th, 2009 until supplies run out, Raymond Aaron is offering the opportunity to get his book, “Double Your Income Doing What You Love: Raymond Aaron’s Guide To Power Mentoring” for free, directly from Raymond. In addition to the free book, he’s autographing it for you and including a special DVD about Raymond’s participation in Polar Race. Polar Race is a event where competitors compete in a foot race to the magnetic North Pole and not only did Raymond participate in the 2007 event, he was at age 62 when he did it.
Raymond’s book is an amazing book. I’ve owned a copy since it was first released and have given it as gifts, it’s a very wonderful and powerful book explaining the need for mentoring and introducing the concept of goal setting using Raymond’s MTO Technique. MTO stands for Minimum, Target, and Outrageous and together they make for the most powerful way I’ve ever encountered for goal setting. Just by applying this methodology guarantees some accomplishment on your goals whether you hit your minimum level or shoot for the stars and hit the outrageous achievement level.
Last week I mentioned that one of my mentor’s, Raymond Aaron, posted a free video that teaches how to eliminate procrastination in your life. (Click here to read that blog entry.) This week he’s added a new video that teaches about why it’s important to have mentors in your life and how you can achieve amazing things with the help of a mentor.
You might be thinking that you don’t need a mentor, but think about it for a moment. Every sports team has a coach, every movie and television show has a director, and every ship has its captain. Why? So that they can guide their team, film, show, or vessel successfully from the start to finish. Do you think Donald Trump has mentors? You bet he does. Anytime you want to learn something, you’re best bet is with the guidance of a mentor. But don’t let me try to sell you on the value of a mentor, hear about it from one of the world’s best success coaches, and he’s even going to teach it to you for free.
Twelve weeks ago, when I first met Jorge Cruise, I was 47 pounds heavier and 10 inches bigger around my belly. I had read in the Costco Connection magazine that Jorge was looking for 100 participants to take part in his Belly Fat Cure challenge. The purpose of the challenge was to find testimonial cases for the program when it officially launches either in December of this year or January of 2010. Jorge had previously done a couple of local based testimonial case groups through San Diego Magazine, and the Costco Connection was the third and final group to get the chance to preview the materials before it gets officially finalized for the launch.
I had submitted my name and a couple of shirtless photos that I wasn’t too proud of along with my application to the program and a hope for the best. I was pleasantly surprised to not only be selected to be part of this group which would meet online weekly for the duration of the challenge, but I was also selected to be part of a smaller group of San Diego based Costco members that got invited to Jorge’s office to personally get introduced to the program. Unfortunately, Jorge’s busy schedule prevented more than one additional in person group meeting with him, but it was still an honor to be selected.
To achieve this Raymond is utilizing a number of tools to help share a wealth of information covering such diverse topics as eliminating debt, to applying the Law Of Attraction, and building a list of potential clients using social media services like YouTube, FaceBook, and Twitter. One of Raymond’s tools is a blog site that is located at http://www.DoubleYourIncomeChallenge.com and as incentive for signing up for updates on the site, Raymond Aaron will send you MP3s of Jack Canfield discussing several topics from his “The Success Principles” book.
If you’ve ever seen the colossal selling video “The Secret” or read the book version, or even seen the “The Secret” discussed on Oprah Winfrey’s show, then you’re already familiar with the concept of creating a vision board, as taught by John Assaraf. Essentially, the concept to making a vision board, is put up photos of what things or concepts you want in life on a board and then visualize having those things or feelings as if they were already part of your life.
So this can be quite a laborious process, but if you really want those things in your life, then it’s worth the time and effort. Well when I was first introduced to “The Secret” at Raymond Aaron’s “Monthly Mentor University” a couple of years ago, I thought about putting together a vision board, but really couldn’t get past the feeling that clipping pictures out of magazines and using glue sticks to attach those pictures to colored construction paper and writing little sayings, felt a little too junior highish for me. So needless to say, I never did one, even though John Assaraf’s story of living in the same exact dream home he put on his vision board was quite compelling in itself.
