Too Good To Be True
By MLM Mobster | Published: July 17, 2010
I was in Vegas at the Red Rock Resort for Marshall Sylver’s mind expanding First Million seminar. It’s one of those you-have to-be-there-to-get-it courses Two days of belly laughs and quantum learning.
Marshall Sylver, aka The Millionaire Maker, is a hypnotist who’s out to “ruin you.” Don’t worry. That’s a good thing. He lobs landmines into your subconscious that blow your fear based notions about life and money to smithereens. In other words, he wakes you up.
The thing is, most people wanna stay asleep. Their trance tells them that life’s gotta be a struggle. Money is scarce and hard to make. If something seems too good, it can’t possibly be true. Yada-yada-yada. Funny? On one level, yeah. To my mind it’s sad. People will die defending beliefs that keep them stuck, broke, and sick.
Marshall Sylver believes, and I do too, that all of life is a trance. Scary? No. It’s liberating – if you choose your trance wisely. Bottom line – you only have two choices. You choose your trance, or your trance chooses you.
What is a trance? It’s a half-conscious state, like a dream or a reverie (pleasantly lost in one’s own thoughts). I know, I know. We like to think of ourselves as sharp and alert. The truth is, the best of us are a bit like automatons. Some people are bonafide zombies.
You couldn’t function without beliefs. Beliefs are thoughts. They’re not true; they’re not false. They just are. They only have the meaning you give them. Most of us create meanings that get us through the day without a major meltdown. You set your beliefs like you set cruise control. Then you can move around without effort. That’s safe; that’s comfortable; that’s trance.
The norm is to set your trance for survival. But what happens when you long for something more, when your deep desires start to burn, when your dreams demand a life of their own?
You can stay in your familiar trance and live your “life of quiet desperation.” Or, you can take responsibility and create a trance that empowers you. A trance that shatters all your boundaries. A trance that forces you to stand up, stand out and be seen.
People may laugh when you do. They may criticize you. Can you handle it? If your answer is , “Yes!” you can have anything you want. Romance. Adventure. Wealth.
I’ve just described the trance of the successful Network Marketer. I know because I live in that trance. It’s delicious. Life is easy. Life is fun. There’s no line between my work and play. Money flows to me constantly. Why wouldn’t it? It’s an energy that I attract.
I feel blessed. I never have to plan a vacation. My life is one long luxury vacation. Check out the photos in this post. Does it look like I’m struggling? I’ve gotta smile when I think that I was learning and earning big bucks while standing in a luscious pool under a Vegas sun.
Too good to be true? Depends on your trance.
