“So Let it Be Written, So Let it Be Done.”

If you’ve ever watched the movie, ‘The Ten Commandments,” the quote above should be familiar.

It was what Yul Brynner said as the Pharaoh Rameses II when he issued an important command. The order was given, it was written down and it was to be done. The Pharaoh ruled—literally.

I thought of Rameses’ command recently when I wrote something down and within 72 hours it had come to pass.

We could say it was a coincidence except that it happens all the time. Our intention and our writing is part of the creation and manifestation process.

A friend of mine just showed me an affirmation he created when he was fearful of losing an important client. On an index card he wrote. “I am so happy and grateful now that Mr. “X” has renewed his commitment for another year.” Within two days, the renewal was made and check received.

And our Diamond Club Members and EMC regularly fill out their Intentions and Commitments forms each week to share with their mastermind teams.

It’s an exercise in active clarity and impressive results.

So what was it that I wrote down?

Well, you’ll hear more about it in the weeks ahead, but I can tell you part of the story now.

It started when I did a Diamond Club Training call on the importance and the art of networking. A short while later, I had Larry Benet, “The Connector” do a teleseminar on the same subject.

I really do try to practice what I preach, so I was updating my Top 20 List of people I am connected to as well as my Top 20 List of people to whom I would like to be connected. It was this second list to which I added the name of Michael Gerber.

Most of you are no doubt familiar with the founder of E-Myth Worldwide and author of several E-Myth books. Michael is one of my favorite business authors and his work has had a profound influence on my own. I have long wanted to meet him and develop a relationship with him, but I had never written it down.

Through an interesting sequence of events that would take a long while to tell you, and due to some very fortuitous connections, I now find myself registered for Gerber’s Dreaming Room (a new program he’s created that I was anxious to attend) at a very favorable rate.

So on April 25 and continuing through April 27, I will be working with “Mr. E-Myth” in The Dreaming Room in San Diego.

I highly recommend his new book, Awakening the Entrepreneur Within. It is all about his latest endeavor and how it will change the shape of entrepreneurship (my words, not his).

When I come back, I’ll be able to tell you more about the Dreaming Room from my own experience. I have a feeling that I and SuccessNet will never be the same.

If you’d like to find out about The Dreaming Room now, you can get a free recording from Michael Gerber that explains it here. It’s quite eye-opening to say the least.

Would You Like Me to Be “On-Call” for You?

I have some questions for you . . .

One of the many benefits of Diamond Club is that my members can set up a strategy session with me pretty much any time they want.

That’s right, they get to pick my brain, ask a question, brainstorm with them, review a website or kick a new idea around.

This is our third year in this program and no one has abused it.

One member, I’ll call him “Don” saved over $1400 by calling me. He was about to invest $1397 on a program and he wanted to know what I thought of it. I told him not to bother. He didn’t really need it and the program doesn’t work—at least not very well. He would have wasted his money—and his time and energy.

“Sam” asked me to review one of his sales pages that was converting at just under 2%. After he changed it based on my suggestions, it began converting at 4.3%. How much was that phone call worth? It generated an additional $1,700 in the first 60 days.

“Betty” was confused about what appeared to be conflicting goals and objectives. In less that 20 minutes, I was able to help her get clear, resolve the conflicts and focus her energies on what would generate the best results.

It’s hard to put a monetary value on that, but she did get a new website operational within 2 weeks that she’d been trying to get up and running for over a year. Being clear on your path enables you to make better progress, but also enjoy the process more and have a lot less frustration.

And this is just a sampling of some of the breakthroughs I’ve been able to assist these Diamond Members with. In addition they’re constantly getting feedback and support from their mastermind team.

How about you? Do you have an expert to call and ask their counsel? Do you have a mastermind team that’s dedicated to helping you reach your goals?

I’m willing to be “on-call” for you. I don’t have all the answers and I won’t try to snow you when I don’t. But I’ve got over 30 years of experience, knowledge and expertise to bring to the table. And if I don’t know the answer to your question, I usually know where to get it.

I will also set you up with your own mastermind team. I’ll open the vault of SuccessNet products to you–at no additional charge. I’ll send you a book every other month and I’ll give you access to business book summaries with new books added every week.

And, of course, there’s more.

But what would it be worth to you to have an expert to call when you need help?

Many of our DC Members join at the beginning of the year. You can join anytime, but the best time is right now. The only thing worse than not being in Diamond Club is not being in Diamond Club for another day or another week.

This program is for serious people who are ready to take action on their goals and dreams. If that’s you, find out more here . . .

PS: Oh, and just so you know, Gold Membership is about to double in value—and you will get all the benefits of Gold Membership INCLUDED in your Diamond Club Membership.

If you have questions, please let me know and I will be happy to assist you.
