This past weekend, we attended a personal development seminar that we’d been looking forward to for months.
But you can be sure we were surprised when we walked in a little late on the second day, and everyone was getting in on some S&M action…
If we thought it was that kind of seminar, we would’ve been on time that morning. 🙂
OK, the seminar was the Millionaire Mind Intensive from Peak Potentials, founded by T. Harv Ecker. Ecker is a very well known guru in the area of personal development / betterment.
If you haven’t read his latest book Secrets of the Millionaire Mind yet, you’re seriously missing out. It’s about finding all those limiting beliefs like "I don’t deserve it", "That’s for other people", "I’m not that lucky", that many of us acquired while growing up and showing you how to destroy them. It’s really that simple.
We can’t give the whole thing away – you’ll want to go to one of these seminars yourself – but here’s what you need to know.
T. Harv Ecker is very big on completely eradicating old damaging beliefs that we hold which don’t serve us. These beliefs actually sabotage our chances for success, in all areas of life – love, relationships, money, success. etc.
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is a great easy read, and very actionable… Oh, and it also comes with two Free tickets to this really cool seminar, which is how we got in. I highly recommend you check it out.
Back to our story – the S&M session…
Our instructor had just passed out some heavy duty rubber bands and asked everyone to put one on their wrist… and that’s where the fun begins. Yes, it IS exactly what you’re thinking.
The 30 Day Personal Development S&M Challenge
He challenged everyone in the room to wear that rubber band for 30 days, and every time you catch yourself having a limiting thought, you have to stretch that rubber band and let go. ‘POP!’, ‘Ouch!’.
Yes, it hurts, but that’s the idea. Then you correct your statement with something encouraging and positive. And you repeat two more times.
Now, this may remind some of you of some form of bizarre shock therapy or a Pavlovian experiment unleashed on us all, but it’s a really good idea. Yeah, the brain psychology is basically the same.
So for every negative though, you experience three snaps of that heavy duty rubber band. Your brain’s going to catch on pretty quickly, and it’s going to associate the pain with negative, damaging thoughts, and the relief and good feelings with powerful, empowering thoughts.
And like with any bad habit, after 30 days you’ll change the way you think and be much happier and more successful for it.
Read Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and get your own personal success story in gear. Also, dial into the free Millionaire Mind Tele-Class. That price again is "free", so you’ve got nothing to lose except some bad habits. 🙂
Now if you’re looking for the "other kind" of S&M, watch for our special BDSM series coming soon. As you probably know by now from reading our blog, we don’t pull punches or hide out from the forbidden topics. That’s not what helping people is about.
As always, our commitment to you is to answer your questions without bias or judgment, and to help you with the best advice we possibly can. If we don’t know the answers, we’ll find someone who does!
That’s our promise to you.
Have a great day!
