“Well, you’ve already ruined Thanksgiving for a bunch of families,” I said to one of our Mastermind members, “Are you going to ruin their Christmas as well?”
Harsh, but that’s what Craiggy Grinch had to say to get the message across.
And you see, while t’is the season to send really Christmassy greetings, Craiggy Grinch decided to go the other way today.
Listen, it’s the end of the year and if you didn’t achieve what you wanted then you need a wake-up call.
Because you are probably like my client…
…you have a website, and your product is “almost” done…or maybe it’s your sales letter that is “almost” done.
And like my client’s projects, your work has been “almost” done for months and months and months.
As a result of that, your product – the solution to many OTHER people’s problems – remains hidden from the world.
So they suffer while you procrastinate.
Maybe, because you haven’t released your fat loss program, this person remains overweight, in tears and even in hiding during the holiday season because they are ashamed of how they look and act at holiday parties.
So you ruined their Christmas. Way to go.
You’re a real Eddie Johnson, aren’t you? (Clark Griswald’s brother-in-law, FTWK).
Or maybe you have a really great “improve your finances” program, but thanks to your laundry list of silly reasons for not launching it, hundreds – if not thousands – of people have no room in their budget to get gifts for everyone on their list.
Way to go Ebeneezer. You ruined their Christmas.
Or perhaps you have a brilliant system for helping a husband and wife fix their relationship.
But you’re still editing your book…for the 14th straight month…and so not only will hundreds and thousands of stressful marriages remain on edge over the holidays, but their poor children will be walking on eggshells on Christmas morning so as to not upset their parents and spark off another screaming match…
…and that one REALLY bothers me because I’ve been that kid.
And it sucks.
And all because of YOUR FAILURE TO LAUNCH, there is going to be some poor kid dealing with that on Christmas.
Way to go. You’ve ruined Christmas again.
– You aren’t happy with the colors on your website.
– You’re not sure if Chapter 9 should go before Chapter 7 or after Chapter 12.
– Your headline just isn’t perfect.
– You’re worried with other people will think <= worst excuse ever
Blah, blah, blah.
You see, those aren’t real obstacles to your success.
Yet those silly little distractions are stopping so many of you.
Just last week on one of my FB QnA sessions at www.SuccessQnA.com, reader Scott M. posted the following:
“I’m a trained copywriter, currently working for big company, but my passion is info-marketing in the romance/relationships niche. I’ve written an e-book & downloaded your Internet Independence report, but for some reason I have a block/fear when it comes to launching my own e-biz.”
“I feel SO much more knowledgeable than the average joe, so I can’t decide whether to hire someone to help me make my dream come true or use all the books and programs I already have and just trust my gut and launch my e-biz on my own.”
Here’s Craiggy Grinch’s reply. It was short and sour (and sassy):
“Scott, stop procrastinating and just go and take massive action and get it done TODAY. Remember – every day you hold back there is some poor, lonely guy out there desperate and dateless. YOU are ruining HIS life with your procrastination.”
So Scott, the truth is that you and my Mastermind client and so many other potential success stories reading this email have effectively ruined Christmas for thousands of strangers because you didn’t get your solution to their problem out in time.
It is unacceptable.
You can do better.
You can go on ruining Christmas for everyone.
Listen, this was pretty harsh, but it was needed, because nothing else seems to be working to get you to take action.
And it’s frustrating because I know you can help so many people.
You have a great gift. You have the knowledge to help others, and you’re a good person that cares.
So let’s start taking action. Let’s get you helping people and start changing lives for the better.
The world needs YOU more than ever.
The world is hurting – so help it.
Please, don’t let those so-called obstacles stand in your way any longer.
Destroy the obstacles, eliminate the excuses, and help save the world one person at a time – starting with yourself.
Make it your BEST year EVER in 2013 – and do so by taking action.
And more important…
Make it THEIR best year ever in 2013 – and do so by helping others through delivering solutions to their problems.
Share your message, abundantly, and without fear.
“Reject fear, greed, and doubt.” – Bedros Keuilian
You can do it,
