A little trick I use, may help...or not.
Yes, we all can relate.
Here is a trick. A technique, which is very powerful, and this is only a small part of it.
It comes from several sources, but 2 of the most known are THINK AND GROW RICH by Napoleon Hill and his oft cited "weird" section on INVISIBLE guides. Using his imagination he created a round table of dead men to ask them for their wisdom. It is probably the least read or used chapter in his book.
The second source, is from Mike Marvel (aka Frank Rudolph Young) another very "weird" idea guy. FRY wrote several books on yoga, health and mind magic, etc. Anyhow, here is the gist of the method.
I have real people, alive, that I can confer with. I have others, like Harvey Brody, albeit still alive, I consult with the many hours of audio I have with him, and then there are people from my past who I can easily recall.
Say health. I had a friend in the Navy, Jack. He was the most fit, energetic guy I knew.
Today, as I'm focusing oh what goes into my mouth as part of my regimen toward good health, when I come to the decision I ask myself, out loud,
what would Jack do? What would his choice be to maintain his great health, fit and athletic body, high energy levels? What choice would he make?
What would Jack say to me, right now, about what I am about to decide?
Man O man, it is MAGIC. Or seems like it. I can almost hear him, very clearly see a pic of us, which I look at from time to time, with us both sitting on a bench at the beach in our swim suits. He looks like the California surfer, the sort of like Frank Kern only with good looks...and I am there all Lumpy AND Ohio flabby.
What would Jack do?
I have other go to MODELS, OR CONSULTANTS, on my decision making methods.
And one other tid bit secret, I flood myself with the emotion of being there with Jack (or whomever) and get to laughing, soaking up his energy and thanking him for his good advice. Which I can always ignore (but he does give me a disappointing look).
Weird? Well that's never bothered me.
But using invisible consultants, living or gone from this world, and choosing ones you respect and have a lot of good feelings about, comes in so handy.
Every once in a while, in a face to face situation, I ask, What would Elmer do? And gosh darn, both those dapper old salesmen of yesteryear come to my aid and give some pretty good advice. Often, I hear something about sizzle and commissions don't fall from heaven (or you don't get paid, laid or made doing nothing).
Who would you confer with re: a decision about investing? What would he/she do?
Try it, might be surprised.
Just be aware, both Napoleon Hill and myself lost our minds with the help of invisible friends, HA!
