Default Just one man's way of thinking.

Who you work with is incredibly important. Are they trustworthy?

When you get into big trouble, it's often because of the people you're working with...

Harvey's 3 types of people are...

Number 1s: the good people to work with. Basically honest, and will do what they say they will.

Number 2s: these are the people who want a piece of the reward, but don't want to work to help you reach the goal. The way I see it, these are the "freeloader" types...

Number 3s: These are those with a "hidden agenda." They may say all the right things, but in reality, they have something else in mind...

I try to follow Harvey's example, and only work with people who I feel are "trustworthy" types of people...

I've come across another type of person. This is the person who so wants to do something, he "fools himself." That is, he convinces himself that he can do something or fulfil something which he can't really do. In the process, he also fools you... Though he's not doing it "dishonestly," since he's actually fooled himself into believing it (because he so wants it to be true)... This person can screw you up, too (though it is unintentional).

Best wishes,


Thanks Dien,

I would like to point out, this thread was an answer to the email, mainly, so I don't get another one. Rather post here than respond to similar questions.

I was asked specifically about Harvey Brody's thinking, and I gave my interpretation/translation.

Also, we lost any "Warriors" with all this thinking stuff. This HARD thought process is behind a guy with over 55 years of continuous success. While others have gone to jail, been fined, went bankrupt, quit the business, became gurus or whatever, Harvey keeps on keeping on.

But he is not for everyone. Nor is hard work, effort, setting goals or even having a focus.

Harvey Brody represents to me, ADVANCED techniques and methods. Licensing, which we have extensive threads on in the archives, is simply one of the best businesses to be in. Toll positions are hard to beat. Yet, few do it or even know how.

As for application of Harvey's thinking, he helped me to secure a very sweet ongoing contract which paid almost $6,000.00 a Month for 10 hours a week of my time. BECAUSE I did the thinking first. Not my usual style.

Using and applying what Harvey teaches becomes easier, like everything, the more often you put it to use.

But still, it is only one's man thinking, feel free to choose whomever you want to follow or listen to.
