The ONLY Learning That Matters!

In school, they never taught us HOW to Think.

They taught us how to read, write, do math, and collect, organize and analyze data.

They taught us history, as it is spun by those who wrote its books.

But they didn’t teach us how to think for ourselves –
how to discover our own TRUTH.

They taught us WHAT to think.
If we knew HOW to think critically for ourselves, we
might become a challenge for those who want to control
us, to bind us in mental slavery.
To be FREE, to truly OWN our lives, we must learn and
understand the power we have within, and how to control
and utilize our valuable tool and asset – our MINDS.
More than 80 years ago Napoleon Hill wrote a manual and
handbook for the powerful human mind – Think and Grow
Rich
.
Thousands of people have read the book, but most read
it the way they were taught in school – and completely
missed its lessons and secrets.
Hiil and his publishers instructed us to read the book
repeatedly, and form a study group – to benefit from
the points of view of others and utilize the Power of
the MASTERMIND.
While there are many such study groups around the
world, including webinars, most of them are led by one
or a few individuals who present their brilliant
insights to the groups.
The problem with the groups is that, in order to
discover the lessons and secrets, You must engage and
actively PARTICIPATE in the discussion.
I know of only one group who not only permits, but
actually begs, its members to Participate.
The Mentoring For Free Mastermind group enables all its
members to add their written and verbal insights to the
discussion – for the benefit of all.
Its Think and Grow Rich Lessons program charges no
tuition, nor any other fees, and explores one chapter
in depth every week. They have been doing so for more
than 12 years.
I greatly appreciate the thousands of folks who have
added value to this group over the years.

Why 98% of New Businesses Fail

Why do 98% of all new businesses fail within their
first 2 years? (That is ALL businesses, not just MLM.)

Hill gives usdisappointment a thorough lesson in economics in Chapter
7.

There’s an old saying… “If a man will not work, he
shall not eat.”
(2 Thessalonians 3:10)

As civilizations grew, the demand for the Services of
specialized skills increased. As we entered the
Industrial Age and now, the Information Age, it became
impossible for any one person to be proficient in every
skill needed by the community.

So we bartered our Services and developed currency to
make trading Services easier.

Yet somehow, since the dawn of the Information Age, an
entire generation of Internet users have been
conditioned to believe they can earn money without
productive work or performing wanted Services!

This is pure ECONOMIC INSANITY.

98% of businesses are started by lazy people driven by
a Fear-based need to make money. (Fear is the root of
all Negative Emotions including Greed, Jealousy, Anger,
Hatred and Revenge.)

Our friend Jim’s uncle passed away and left Jim a nice
corner lot downtown.

When Jim was a teenager he enjoyed working on cars with
his buddies. So Jim figures a lot of folks need auto
repairs and maintenance and decides to open an auto
repair shop.

In the beginning Jim services some cars, does a good
job, and business picks up.

But Jim also like to take time off to go fishing. He
does not want the hassle of hiring, training and
supervising other mechanics.

So Jim takes cars across the street to Bob’s Auto
Repair to has them do the work. When the work is
complete he brings the cars back and bills his
customers what Bob’s charged him, plus 30% for his
profit – without any value-added services.

How long do You think Jim will stay in business?

With an MLM distributorship – You don’t invent or
develop the products; You don’t manufacture, package
and label them; You don’t process payments or ship the
products.

So, what value-added Services will You provide to
warrant the earnings You expect to receive?

Leadership is not about awards and recognition.
Leadership is a willingness to get one’s hands dirty
and bloodied while blazing a trail to make the
followers’ journey easier.

In other words, a Leader SERVES the Followers. Service
is the engine of success and leadership.

The 98% who fail do so because their driving motivation
is Fear.

The 2% who succeed thrive and endure due to a
Love-driven desire to SERVE.

Knowledge is Not Enough

fire-hand-ovenKnowledge is not enough.

You can attend schools, read books, listen to audios,
watch videos..and acquire no Skills – zero, zip, nada,
bupkis.

There’s an old saying… “Experience is the best teacher.”

We learn by making mistakes. Everything we learned and
mastered required many mistakes: Walking, talking,
riding a bike, throwing a ball, reading, writing, basic
math, cooking, etc.

Usually the best lessons learned are those very painful
and costly mistakes. “Careful! The stove is hot!” took
on a whole new level of understanding the first time
You touched a red-hot one.

“Wow, wow, WOW!!!!! Oh, my GAWD, that HURTS!!!!!! Huh?

The sad thing is, the Fear of making mistakes holds
folks back from learning new skills or mastering old
ones. But, wait a minute… WE CANNOT MASTER NEW SKILLS
WITHOUT MAKING MISTAKES.

Another old saying…”If You want to swim, You have to
get wet.”

Learning some things, like swimming, should not be
attempted without a Mentor. When choosing a Mentor,
look for these two qualities…
1. A vested interest;
2. Competence.

Someone who loves You very much does not want You to
drown, but be sure they demonstrate swimming ability
before allowing them to teach You.

Success in Network Marketing requires mastering some
People Skills.

At Mentoring For Free we teach the Personality Colors
skill. Yeah, there’s a video to watch, a CD to a listen
to and a book to read…

But, unlike anyone else I know of who teaches about
personalities, we provide live, hands-on Practice 3
times every week.

On these 3 conference calls we also teach the skill of
Talking to people…and the Critical skill of
LISTENING.

Your Mentor will demonstrate how to have good telephone
dialogues and leave voice messages. Then Your Mentor
will let You practice doing the same, all the while
standing by You with a life preserver in case You get
into trouble.

All of us mastered these Skills this way…and, so far,
in almost 12 years, no one has drowned.

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm

The First Sense

Here is a secret the SEO gurus won’t tell You, because
most of them are unaware of it…

Good Search Engine Optimization (SEO) attracts LOGICAL
Traffic, or MACHINE traffic.

But REAL Human traffic – the kind that fills out Your
form to get Your help – is ORGANIC traffic. It is
EMOTIONAL, based on FEELINGS.

The search engine algorithms that rank websites are
logical – they don’t FEEL.

Real people PRAYING for help are ATTRACTED to Your
VIBRATIONS of LOVE and GRATITUDE. They see it in the
warmth of Your smiling eyes. They FEEL it in something
You wrote from the heart. They are Attracted to Your
very name!

The logical CONSCIOUS mind will go to Google or Bing
searching for something, but the Emotional SUBCONSCIOUS
will select You from all the listings because it is
drawn to You by its FEELINGS. This is what Hill calls
The SIXTH SENSE. I like to refer to it as the FIRST
SENSE, and I’ll tell You why in a little bit.

But be careful! Your VIBRATIONS can REPEL traffic as
well!

HOW this works is really not important, but okay…

We Are All Connected

Organically, we are made of about 70% water – a whole
big bunch of hydrogen and oxygen atoms. Way deep down
at the subatomic level, these atoms are built by tiny
quantum particles.

These quantum particles are not particles at all, but
tiny charges of vibrating ENERGY. All of us, and the
rocks we stand on, are made of this Energy.

This is the TRUE nature of the Universe: We and the
rocks we stand on are all connected because all this
Energy comes from ONE SOURCE.

THOUGHTS and FEELINGS are pure energy too – uncluttered
by the patterns of matter. Being Energy, they cannot be
destroyed.

So, with this in mind, which is more REAL – the chair
You are sitting in, or Hill’s Invisible Counselors?

Okay, The First Sense…

Growing within the womb, long before we became
Consciously Self-Aware, our Subconscious minds formed
and grew – that mind which is aware of, and
communicates with, the Energies of EMOTION. So, we had
THAT sense… FIRST.

After birth we began perceiving the logical patterns of
the material world with our puny, logical, Conscious
minds.

As we grew we accepted SUGGESTIONS from others that all
this spiritual stuff is bullshit. Layer upon layer of
accepted suggestions gradually buried our core
programming under the false programming of the
so-called “real” world.

But the core TRUTH is still there under all those
layers and layers of junk. That is why we instinctively
KNOW, no matter which culture we grew up in, that there
is something greater than we are… The SOURCE.

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm – Florida, USA

P.S. Spend 5% of Your time working on SEO, and the
other 95% growing Your LOVE and GRATITUDE via Your
connection with The Source, and You will achieve
amazing results!

Mentally Fit – The New Fitness for 2013

Inspired by Chapter 4 of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

Darkness is the ABSENCE of light. Cold is the absence
of heat. Neither darkness nor cold have sources,
origins or generators. They are NOTHING.

Likewise, LACK is the absence of PROSPERITY or
ABUNDANCE. Weakness is the absence of POWER. There are
no stores warehousing either Lack or Weakness. They are
Nothing.

The remedy for Darkness is to apply the tiniest bit of
Light – it obliterates Darkness. The remedy for Cold is
Heat.

The remedy for Lack is to embrace Abundance and
Prosperity.

The remedy for Weakness is to acquire POWER. Physical
Power is obtained by exercising the muscles against
resistance. Mental Power grows from exercising the MIND
– simply THINKING.

Here is the boggle…

We build ourselves over entirely every eleven months,
so we can say we are really only eleven months old at
any time. If we build the same defects back into
ourselves year after year, then we have no one to blame
but ourselves for our condition.

We are the sum total of our own thoughts.
Unfortunately, in school we were not taught HOW to
think – only WHAT to think.

We learned reading, writing, arithmetic and the basics
of history and science through REPETITION. We learned
the applied knowledge skills such as cooking, sewing,
typing, woodworking, auto repair, etc. through REPEATED
practice.

With sufficient practice, we reach the highest level of
competence: Unconscious Competence. The SUBCONSCIOUS
part of us performs the skills without our Conscious
effort, just as we breathe and beat our hearts.

We learned our theological BELIEFS through REPEATED
SUGGESTION in church, schul or mosque. ALL Beliefs are
programmed in our SUBCONSCIOUS via Repeated suggestion.

We will believe LIES when we hear AND REPEAT them often
enough. For example, even today many folks Believe
destruction is the proper route to Harmony, World Peace
and Enlightenment.

ALL our gut reactions and decisions are determined by
our Emotional FEELINGS. Our Feelings are generated by
our Belief Patterns.

To change the way we react or decide, we must change
the way we Feel. Thus, we must change our Beliefs. We
create NEW Beliefs the same way we received our
existing ones.

PREDOMINANT ATTITUDE

Attitude is simply the direction in which something
leans. Our Mental Attitude determines how we filter and
react to new SUGGESTIONS.

Predominant means, “MOST of the time.” It’s okay to
sway when hit by as strong gust of wind, as long as You
lean the way You want to most of the time.

The MAIN role of SELF-TALK is to guide Your Predominant
Attitude. This is KEY before You can practice and
MASTER the Skills of Visualization, Imagination,
Organized Planning, Sex Transmutation, and the Sixth
Sense. It also KEY in inducing PERSISTENT BELIEF,
DESIRE and FAITH – and Vibrating WITH the MASTERMIND.

Self-Talk is NOT the same as Your daily goal statement
as outlined in Chapter 2 of TGR. Self-Talk is mainly an
ongoing Attitude course correction.

I know folks who set aside time each morning and/or
evening for Self-Talk during their daily meditation,
walk, gym workout or commute. I’m certain they have a
great Attitude during the days’ bookends, but what
about MOST of the day?

I have posted sheets everywhere that say in big, bold
print, “I AM WHOLE, PERFECT, STRONG, POWERFUL, LOVING,
HARMONIOUS AND HAPPY.” These remind me to adjust my
course throughout the day.

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm – Florida, USA

P.S. Your Subconscious will probably cry, “Bullshit!”
when You first begin to reprogram it. This is normal.
It will accept whatever You have CHOSEN the same way
You got all Your existing Beliefs – through PERSISTENT
REPEATED SUGGESTION.

Remember, You build POWER through repeated exercise
against resistance.

Vibration

Inspired by Chapter 13 of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

In his day, Dr. Alexander Graham Bell was the world’s
foremost expert on VIBRATION. He believed all Vibration
behaved according to the same Laws. From the very low
frequency seismic vibrations of the Earth; up to the
higher acoustic vibration of sound; further up to the
vibration of electrical current; up higher to the radio
waves; higher to heat radiance; still higher to visible
light; up through the highest known electromagnetic
vibrations.

Bell thought all vibration included the exchange of
electrons, the tiny particles which are the basis of
the science of chemistry. Working in conjunction with
Bell and Dr. Elmer R. Gates, Hill developed the theory
of Chemistry of the Mind.

His theory is that THOUGHTS Vibrate by the same Laws as
all other lower-level vibration – there is an exchange
of “electrons” of some sort.

Now, more recent discoveries by neuroscientists and
quantum physicists show that Thought Energy, whatever
it is, travels much faster than any electron, or any
other particle, is capable of – faster than light, or
virtually instantaneous.

Although there are devices capable of generating or
detecting all other forms of vibration, there is only
one known device capable of GENERATING and detecting
thought vibrations – THE BRAIN.

The other devices are TUNED to sense and process only
certain ranges of vibration – ignoring all others. A
seismometer only reacts to the vibrations of the Earth;
a motion detector only certain sounds or heat sources;
and so on.

In its base, our Brain has a Reticular Activating
System. It chooses which vibrations to sense and
process, and which to ignore – it is our Brain’s tuning
dial.

Who programs our RAS?

In most cases, it is programmed by the accumulated
SUGGESTIONS from other people.

We are capable of re-tuning our own RAS – through
AUTO-SUGGESTION.

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm – Florida, USA

P.S. Who is programming YOUR tuner? Who tells YOU what
is important and what should be ignored?

All Events and Habits are Equal and Neutral

Inspired by Chapter 12 of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

All Events and Habits are Equal and Neutral.

Whether an event is good or bad depends on how I react
to it.

Stock Market Crash – bad news?

Yes, were I one of the multitude of foolish investors
who jumped on the bandwagon when the prices were high,
expecting them to keep rising higher forever. (My
gullible Subconscious Mind assumes everything will
remain as it is. It struggles with sudden change. It’s
programmed that way.)

However, were I a smart investor waiting to scoop up
bargains after a crash – GOOD NEWS!

HABITS are Neutral as well. They are programs in my
Subconscious Mind. Anything I’ve repeated often enough
became a hard-wired, neural pathway Habit at the level
of Unconscious Competence.

My Subconscious does not judge any Habit as good or bad
– it just runs the programs. It treats the Habit of
beating my heart, Equal with my Habit of saying “my
pleasure” instead of “no problem”, Equal with my Habit
of smoking cigarettes.

It expects to run all its programs forever, until and
unless some external force or my Conscious Will forces
it to change. Conscious Repetition is the only way I’ve
found to force change myself.

A dude named F. W. Woolworth had the Habit of saving
his pocket change and then investing it. Desiring more
pocket change to save, he noticed the Habit most people
have of spending theirs. So he traded nearly worthless
junk for their nickels and dimes, and built himself an
empire.

The five and ten cent stores are long gone. Now we have
dollar stores – more junk, bigger pieces of pocket
change.

My Subconscious Mind was wired at conception with the
knowhow to interact with all other Consciousness of the
Ether. I’ve noticed it does this best when I am free
from Conscious Distraction, like when I meditate or
sleep.

When I’ve gone to bed dwelling on numerous challenges,
I’ve experienced disturbing dreams and woken into
anxiety attacks in the middle of the night – unable to
return to sleep.

When I’ve gone to bed repeating a soothing, uplifting
Self-Talk, I’ve experienced pleasant dreams and woken
early with a head full of ideas I felt confident about.

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm – Florida, USA

P.S. I am continually bombarded by the Suggestions of
others, and they bother me. My own Suggestion must be
enough to outweigh them. Each Suggestion is Equal too.

Sex, Love and Romance

Inspired by Chapter 11 of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Uh oh, big ah-ha moments here. I realized how huge this
chapter is, and why some editions of TGR omit it. You
see, there are powerful people in this world who do not
want You to know some things.

This chapter is KEY, Preston,  to business, sales and
building an organization. It is KEY to the mind-set of
“No Ego, No Agenda” that we call Pull-Through
Marketing.

In EVERY CHAPTER of TGR, Hill teaches us that EMOTION
is the powerful wave that carries our thoughts and
gives them substance. Emotion, blended with thought, is
FELT in the body.

So, what is the most powerful form of Emotion? Bear
with me here…

The PRIMARY PURPOSE hard-wired into the DNA of EVERY
cell of EVERY living thing, plant and animal, is to
REPRODUCE! To each life-form the Creator said, in
effect, “There You are. You are good. Now, be fruitful
and multiply.” It was the first command given to every
organism.

So, we thinking, feeling, emoting, creative humans are
driven by the same biological imperative. We will do
ANYTHING to please and impress our mates, driven by the
command to reproduce. After our reproductive years, we
continue to please and impress out of the HABIT of our
nature.

Now, what we learn to do is re-direct that ENERGY
outward, aiming it toward everyone we encounter – to
please and impress them. (Not to mate, to SERVE, please
and impress.)

When we mix together the re-directed ENERGY from the
FEELINGS of Sex, Love and Romance, we perceive others
within a State of COMPASSION, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and
ACCEPTANCE.

A person in this State has a super-charged aura,
radiance, magnetism, an irresistible attractiveness.
This person directs their Energy OUTWARD – driven by an
overwhelming Desire to Serve, please and impress.

Such a person can create, and draw others into, a
MASTERMIND ALLIANCE.

Such a person was Lucille Sides, one of Michael and
Linda’s key mentors.

Did You ever wonder how some of us can build an instant
rapport with a total stranger on the Live Clients
Calls?

I’ll give You my secret. (This is top secret, now.
Please don’t repeat this to anyone.):

While the phone is ringing, I conjure up a memory of a
Perfect Moment with my special lover. I am THERE for an
instant, but I hold onto the Energy, the Feeling. (I
don’t care whether You believe this or not, but the
moment is actually rated PG-13.)

Now, when the phone is answered, I beam all that Energy
to that person. For the entire duration of the call,
that person is the ONLY person in the world to me.

When You LOVE someone that way, it is IMPOSSIBLE to
have an Ego or Agenda.

When I hang up, I really have no clue what their
Personality Color is until I reflect. (Focusing on
Color during the call would be an Agenda. The Colors
Training is really about forming habits anyway. Habits
of Listening, Acceptance, and Sympathy.)

And THAT, my friends, is the Mystery of Sex
Transmutation.

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm – Florida, USA

P.S. If You truly dislike people, abandon ye any hope
of succeeding in any kind of sales or business
ownership.

There IS NO FINISH LINE

Inspired by Chapter 9 of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

The TRUTH about the Race: As long as we draw breath,
there IS NO FINISH LINE.

The necessity of EDUCATION, COACH-ABILITY and ACTION
never ceases.

PERSISTENCE is about HABITS – Losing the Habits of the
majority and acquiring the Habits of the highly
successful.

We can replace the Habit of Procrastination with the
Habit of Initiative;

The Habit of Spending Beyond Our Means with the Habit
of Saving;

The Habit of Entitlement with the Habit of Doing More
Than Paid For;

The Habit of Fear with the Habit of Self-Confidence;
and many more.

How?

Self-Talk and the support of our Mastermind. (It always
comes back to those two, doesn’t it?)

Your Friend and Servant,

Ken Klemm – Florida, USA

P.S. We are either GROWING or Decaying, but never at
rest.

Why do folks Procrastinate?

Inspired by Chapter 8 of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

Alright, the DECISIONS we need to make quickly are NOT
the Major Choices – such as uncovering the DEFINITE
CHIEF AIM of Your Life. We are talking about the Daily
Decisions to take ACTION Steps.

Why do folks Procrastinate?

They FEAR taking ACTION. Action might bring dreaded
Criticism or Rejection. They say, “If I run the race,
then I may lose or discover I’m incapable of winning.
It is safer not to run the race at all.”

THE PURPOSE OF THE RACE IS TO REACH THE FINISH LINE,
nothing more.
