Just Stop It!
Here's an email Joe sent out just today ...
Stop paying attention to the media.
Stop paying attention to the doom and gloom of anyone and everyone around. Stop getting sucked into being a victim.
You won't go anywhere buying into the cultural trance that there isn't enough and times are tough.
You won't accomplish your big goals, or do anything of real greatness, as long as you give in to outer circumstances.
You have to take back your power.
You have to take back your control.
You have to "awaken."
Recently I told a woman who was interviewing me that I was homeless and in poverty only as long as I stayed stuck in survival "thinking."
As soon as I put my mind on what I "wanted" to have instead, I began to shift and get better results.
This can happen for you, too. It took me ten years. You can do it in one weekend.
But you have to stop listening to the media paint a picture of darkness.
The media paints it by finding something dark to report on, whether it's true or not. You and others listen to it, believe it, and before you know it, you have "created" what the media painted.
They predict a recession before there actually is one.
But people believe the media, fall into fear, stop spending, and suddenly a recession is here.
This has to stop. And it can stop right now.
Break free from money worries.
Break free from job worries.
Break free from health worries.
Break free from love worries.
Break free -- PERIOD.
This great message was admittedly sent to promote Joe's Miracles Weekend event in September. But even if you take the event completely out of the picture, there's still a lot of power in his words.
So ... are you ready to STOP IT?
