Everybody wants to be saved. Saved from the tax man. Saved from your landlord. Saved from credit cards. Saved from their jobs. Saved from life itself. The bad news is … you are going to die at some point, we all are. So being saved from everything and anything never changes the outcome of life.
However… we can control, change and mold our weekly, daily, hourly life. This is a sad little story but not unusual.
Sandra is looking for the perfect business opportunity. She has just ordered the absolutely perfect solution from a franchise magazine. It hit all of her switches. Easy (no brain required). Cash (loads of it). Freedom (so much time 24 hours a day will be too long) A month passes and her new business arrives. How exciting. Sandra rushes to open her box.
She pulls out everything at the speed of a child opening a new present from his favourite uncle. Sandra lays everything out in front of her. The 473 page, step-by-step manual. The digitally created set of 12 DVDs. The 6 CDs that can be listened to in the car, on her iPod and walking the dog. And a toll free hotline that is 24/7.
Sandra has booked another day off work to go over everything. First, she begins with the manual. She opens the table of contents and looks for a chapter that will interest her right away. She finds it and reads it. The chapter is called… “ The Seventeen Steps To Your First Million Dollars” …
Perfect, just what a “proximo Salvationist” needs. Half way through the chapter she doesn’t quite get it so she reads another chapter. The same happens again, she doesn’t quite understand so she moves into another chapter. Until she decides to try a DVD. The presenter is great. He talks about how he now makes over 5 million a year, drives to his office in a Lamborghini car whilst booking his next holiday in his cell phone. That’s the life Sandra wants. At DVD 3 the trainer starts to go over all of his systems.
Actually, they are not as simple as she expected. She begins to feel confused. Sandra tries DVD4 but soon gets bored so decided to try and make a start from the manual. At page 19 she gets stuck so she remembers this is where that 24/7 support comes in handy. She rings and gets put on hold… for 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes and longer. She puts down the phone and tells herself she will try again later. It’s now late. She has been going through this stuff for nearly 10 hours now. Sandra goes to bed. It’s the next morning. Sandra walks downstairs from her sleepy night and has to step over all of the empty boxes, manuals, DVDS, CDS and more. She is in a rush. Its 6-30 am and has to get ready to take the 90 minute drive thorough rush hour into the office where she works for another crazy day working her guts out. The day is over, Sandra gets home from the office at 7-45pm and feels like a train wreck. The boxes of stuff frustrate her so she decides just for tonight to pack them and put them into the spare room.
When she opens the spare room door guess what? She stands, looks, stare with her brain saying to her… “Sandra what the hell are you doing?” Why? Because Sandra put her new course in top of the last 21 course she has paid for on her credit cards. Sandra feels ashamed deep inside and slowly closes the door like someone sneaking away in the night. Sandra never opens the door again until she buys another new course promising her salvation from life itself. This is the case of the “Proximo Salvationist” I want salvation, you want salvation, everyone wants saving from something. It’s a human fact!
But can the solution really be found in a box of easy to follow, press one button, ready to go, never work again solutions? If you had business is that what you want? Do you want it so easy that you can laze around on a beach whilst you make stack of money and actually walk away from your office to enjoy your life? Well here’s the thing that your new-life saviors never tell you… it can take, blood, sweat, tears, time, energy and endless hard work to make it happen. It’s rarely if never quick. I have never seen a single click of a mouse solution in my life for success. I have never seen anyone that has paid good money on a credit card instantly gain salvation from anything by making millions overnight… NEVER! And frankly … I doubt it’ll happen to you!
So can you gain your own salvation? Yes, of course, you can but it depends what you want saving from? Only you know that question. Sandra wanted saving from her long hours. Yet she was not willing to put in the long hours as an investment to find out how to do that. I see hundreds of people doing the very same as Sandra.
So do you know what you want saved from? Do you understand the simple steps it’ll take to save you? Are you willing to invest the time and energy into being saved? Are you willing to take control, take charge of your own life? It really is up to you.
Proximo Salvationists want a solution overnight, this hour, this minute. It won’t happen. Sadly proximo Salvationist has predators out there looking, waiting to devour them and steal their cash for their own gain. Does this email sound d like you? Does sit sound familiar? This could be a wake up all for you? I hope so. You are your own salvation. Address your life, your business, your outcome yourself.
Take control and stop the rot of being a proximo Salvationist!
Let me know what you think.
