Mark Joyner Letter & New Purchasing option for those outside of US/Canada

Posted in State of Man News with tags , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2010 by stateofman

Now that “Swallow Your Fears” has become a part of the brand,  we couldn’t be more pleased that best selling author / thought leader / marketing sensei, Mark Joyner,  sent a great letter recently to members to pread the word about State of Man‘s latest album IN THIS PLACE.

You probably already know Mark is known as “The Godfather of Internet Marketing,” so  you can imagine the great response we’ve received from his hundreds of thousands of Simpleology members!  THANK YOU!

For those outside of the US and Canada who’ve had difficulty purchasing the album online to get all the great bonuses we’re offering,  here is a simple work-around:

You’ll receive nearly 30 State of Man tracks – some of which are unreleased and many are out-of-print and unavailable elsewhere. You’ll also get two interviews between Mark Joyner and State of Man front-man John Stringer!

Oh.. and even if you are not a Simpleology member (why aren’t you?  sign up – its life changing and FREE), you can still get in on the bonsues.  Enjoy!

Opportunity – In the mind of the beholder

You know how you find a book on life or on perspective that just FEELS GOOD to read… one that makes you tingle all over with excitement?  That amazing experience generally happens when the content resonates with who you are – and its a great experience to have.

My wife and I are currently reading an excellent new book called Relax into Wealth that has this very effect on me.  The book is exceptionally well written and offers practical advice and didactic stories that may inspire you as much as they inspire me.   Here is an excerpt about opportunity that reminds you of an important lesson:

“Around the turn of the twentieth century, a shoe manufacturer sent a representative to Africa to open up a market in that undeveloped continent.  After exploring the culture for a month, the rep sent a telegram to the home office shouting, ‘Disaster! Disaster! These people do not wear shoes.  Bring me home immediately!’

A short time later, another shoe company sent their agent to Africa for the same purpose.  A month later his home office also received a  telegram: ‘Opportunity! Opportunity! These people do not weare shoes!  Triple production immediately!’

Every situation contains the potential for disatrous problems or undprecedented success.  The event is what we perceive it to be, and it will become what we make of it.  The Chinese written character for crisis is composed of two other characters: danger plus opportunity

The author, Alan Cohen, goes on to explain that “No person, event, or experience is one thing only.  Every situtaion is a blank slate upon which we project our beliefs, which create our entire life.”  How true!

Instead of viewing experiences that trigger frustration, failure, or resistance as “bad,” we can use those feelings as warning signals to reset our perspective and to look for the hidden value the opportunity is offering!  As one great teacher was reported to have said,  “Seek and ye shall find!”

A friend, a father, a son, an incredibly talented video producer and an all around force of nature, Adam Bush was the video producer for “Swallow Your Fears,” and through the filming of the project, State of Man and I got a chance to work with him. Thanfully, we were also welcomed into his friendship.

Both Xandy Smith (director for “Swallow Your Fears”) and Kathy Stringer (my wife – thanks love) wrote words that I’d like to share with you at John Stringer’s Myspace Blog – words about ADAM, his work with State of Man and how we felt about him. Please visit my personal blog if you’d like to read those words!
