Dear Friend & Subscriber,
We're getting close!
As I write this, there's only 62 days left
until we enter a brand new century. You know what else? If you
knew what I know right now... those 62 days... would be... way
more time... than you would need to make more than enough
money to live in luxury for all the rest of your days.
I have discovered what I believe to be the
easiest, most foolproof way to make huge wads of money than
anyone previously has even dreamed about. It is so simple I
could teach you how to do it in less than 10 minutes. It is
100 times more profitable than dealing drugs... yet... it is
100% legal. It works faster than a girl from Hooters could
seduce Bill Clinton. (I just can't make myself refer to him as
It requires no employees, no talent, almost no investment, no
thought... and... believe it or not... practically no effort
whatsoever. The cash-flow from using this secret is as
automatic and as consistent as sunrise. It is one of those
things which is so simple and so obvious (once you know the
trick) it will make you want to smack yourself in the head
because you didn't see it... when... all the time... it was
right there in front of you.
That's the good news.
The bad news is...
I'm Never Going To Write About
This Is My Newsletter!
Why am I being such a shit about this? The
answer is simple: Remember how I said I wanted to do one last
seminar before the end of this century that would go down in
history as the most valuable seminar of the last 100 years?
Well, this is the money-making secret I am going to reveal
that is going to help me make that goal come true.
But you know something? When I think about it,
I am convinced I have already
given the best seminar of the 20th Century. It was held almost
exactly 10 years ago in Los Angeles at the Century Plaza Hotel
and it was called... appropriately enough...
Of The Century!
That seminar was 100% sold out and the cost to
attend was $6,250. I think everyone who attended that
seminar... or... has heard the audio tapes of it will agree...
it was simply the best money-making seminar... ever!
Can I beat it?
But, there's only one way: You see, the
quality of the info I delivered in that 1989 seminar cannot be
topped. Neither can the personalized attention I gave every
attendee. I doubt there will ever be a seminar that delivers
more or better ideas. So, the way I figure it, the only way I
can top my 1989 seminar is to deliver a money-making secret
that has... as its main claim to fame...
How simple is it? I'm glad you asked. If you
come to this seminar, here is what will happen: The seminar
will start at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, December 10th. At that
time, I will be on stage and I will start talking about this
special secret. At approximately 9:15 I will stop
talking about this secret. Why? Simply because, there will be
nothing else to tell you. Nothing more you need to learn. If,
for some reason, you don't want to stick around for the rest
of the seminar (it ends on Sunday, the 12th) you can walk out
of the room, go home and start making money hand-over-fist
just as fast as your little heart desires. It's really true;
after only 15 minutes, you honestly will know everything
you need to know to make this work.
One more thing: This
part of the seminar will NOT be taped. The rest of the
seminar (after the first 15 minutes) will be taped and, those
tapes will be available for purchase. But, those first 15
minutes? No way, Jose. This dealybop is just too damn good to
share with "wanna-be's." This is truly the best
money-making secret (probably in all of history) and, if you
want to know all about it, you now have a very clear choice...
You Can Arrange For Yourself To
Be In That Room... Or... You
Can Choose To Be Left In The Dark!
It's up to you.
All of which brings me to the subject of this
month's newsletter which is directly related to everything
I've just written. I am about to illuminate something you
really, really need to think about. Listen: In only 365 days
from today, one more year will have passed into history. No
matter who you are, 365 days is all you are going to get in
the next year. By the way, that comes out to 8,760 hours... or
525,600 minutes... or... 31,536,000 seconds.
Now, let's say you are rich as hell and you
are willing to pay dearly to have more time in the coming year
than other people. Let's say you want just 10 extra minutes
and you are willing to pay one million dollars for each of
those 10 minutes.
You can't buy them. They're not for sale.
You couldn't even buy one
extra second... for 100 billion
dollars. Time is not for sale. Not at any
price. During the next year, nobody is going to have more time
than you and nobody (except those who go to "Check-out
City") is going to have less.
So what? Well, here is the "so what"
of it: The difference from where you are right now, today...
and where... you will be 1-year from today, depends on one
thing and one thing only. It depends on...
What You Do With Those
8,760 Hours You've Got To Work
With In The Next Year!
What you think about isn't going to produce
any change whatsoever. What you plan isn't going to create any
change either. How you feel isn't going to make a difference.
What you read; what you learn; what you study; what you
discover... none of these things... none whatsoever... is
going to make a scintilla of difference about where you are
1-year from today. Get this straight in your head: The only
thing (except for pure happenstance) that is going to make any
difference at all in your life... is...
What You Do!
So, what are
you going to do with those 8,760 hours you've got to work with
in the coming year? Actually, what you are going to do with a
lot of those hours is outside your control. For example:
You've almost got to spend approximately 2,920 of those hours
sleeping. True, you could sleep less... but... that will
almost certainly be counter-productive. The most recent
research indicates the vast majority of Americans need MORE
than eight hours of sleep per day... and yet... most of us get
Which, of course, makes us a nation of people
who are sleep deprived... and... sleep deprived people suffer
from fuzzy thinking, make bad decisions, and are more at risk
for all types of health problems.
Whatever you do, don't try to become more
productive by getting less sleep. That tactic will backfire on
you. By the way, domestic housecats sleep an average of 16
hours per day and lions in the wild sleep an average of 20. It
is my belief, the happiest mammals on earth are domestic
housecats. As I see it, the only possible exception is a
dolphin or a porpoise. (Same thing.) I live less than a mile
from the world-famous "Dolphin Institute" and
dolphins, like housecats, are truly happy campers.
They might be even happier than housecats.
Here's why: I bet you didn't know it... but...
Dolphins Are The Most Sexually
Active Mammals On Earth!
Honest-to-God. Believe it or not, if you
happen to find yourself in the ocean with a pod of
bottle-nosed dolphins, you don't have to worry about them
hurting you... but... they will make an attempt to screw your
I'm not kidding. Ask any dolphin expert. Hey,
why do you think Flipper and all his buddies are always
Pressing on: After deducting the time we need
to spend sleeping, we're down to 5,840 hours to work with in
the coming year. Let's say you are neither rich, retired nor
retarded. That means you've got to spend a significant amount
of time earning enough fungolas to support yourself and your
family. To do this, let's say you work the proverbial 40 hours
per week. Also, you've got to get ready for work, get to work
and get home from work. Some of you have a long commute, some
are lucky enough to work at home... but... I'm going to decide
arbitrarily, we need to add an average of 10 hours per week to
get ready, and get to and from work. Let's give you a two week
yearly vacation... which means... you are going to use up
2,500 of your hours (50 hours per week times 50 weeks per
year) on work-related activities.
We are now down to 3,340 hours we've got left
in the coming year.
Ah, but we ain't at the end of our deductions
yet. No Sir. But rather than belabor the obvious, let's make
one sizable deduction for what I will designate as "Absolute
Necessities of Life." This might include playing with
your kids, giving time and support to your spouse and friends,
brushing your teeth, shopping for groceries, getting your car
repaired, shaving, taking some "down time" to let
yourself recharge and so on. The time necessary to take care
of the "Absolute
Necessities of Life" will, of course, vary from
individual to individual... but... I can't even imagine this
taking anyone (who actually has a life) less than 3 to 4 hours
per day so... this means... we're going to have to whack off
at least another 2,000 hours from the stash of time we're
allotted for the coming year.
I'm going to stop with these deductions.
You've got the idea by now, don't you Boopsie?
Let us inch a bit closer to the truth: You
really do not have 8,760
hours to decide what to do with in the coming year. In truth,
with so many of your hours already "spoken for," you
probably don't even have 1,000 "discretionary" hours
to decide what to do with in the next year. That gives you
something like 2 hours and 42 minutes per day with which you
have to work to change your life for the better.
And, I feel certain, most of you have lives so
jam-packed that... the truth is... you only have a fraction of
even that small amount of "discretionary" time each
day. And, I bet whatever amount of discretionary time you do
have, I bet you use almost none of it to seriously advance the quality of your life. And, if you
care... if you truly
care... about elevating your status and achieving your
This Has Got
You simply must
use your discretionary time intelligently... or else... you
don't have a rat's ass of a chance of getting anywhere that's
So, what do you do first? I'm gonna tell you
but, before I do, I want to make an important observation:
Many people hate it when I write newsletters like this.
These readers don't want to get the fundamentals right...
no... they want to skip right to the "details." But
your life is already
filled with details... none of which... are doing doodley
squat to enhance your life. You cannot intelligently decide
which details you should really attend to... unless... you are
clear and accurate about what your guiding fundamentals must
Here's something else: Success is not
complicated. It is simple. The real answers are... so
simple... they are downright corny. But simple does
not mean easy. Running the Boston Marathon is very simple.
All you have to do is keep putting one foot in front of the
other for 26+ miles.
Simple as pie. Hard as hell.
I want you to be one of the "Masters of
the Millennium." I want you to achieve more in the year
2,000 than you have achieved in all the previous years of your
life. That means you've got a lot of details to attend to in
the year 2,000... plus... you've got to attend to the right
details. I've got less than two months to help you get this in
laser-sharp focus. Let's see if I can get a commitment from
you. Just for approximately the next 30-days. Just from the
time you read this letter and the time you read next month's.
This commitment will cost you maybe $20.00 or $30.00 and will
take less than five minutes of your time for each of the next 30-days.
Here's all I'm going to ask you to do: Go to a
local drug store, a Radio Shack or wherever and get yourself
an el cheapo, microcassette tape recorder and 30 of those
little bitty microcassettes.
Keep your el cheapo recorder with you all the
time and use one microcassette each day to keep a "time
diary." Use it approximately once every hour of your
waking hours. Your audio entries should only take seconds.
They should be something like this:
"2:15 to 3:10:"
|| Had cavity filled by Doc Megapain.
"3:10 to 3:40:"
|| Drove back to office.
"3:40 to 5:30:"
|| Returned phone calls at work from customers with routine questions."
Etc., etc., etc.
That's all I want you to do. I know, I know.
You're way ahead of me. You already know what this is all
about. You already know the basics of my evil scheme to change
your life for the better.
You don't have a clue. Please just trust me on
this. All you've got to lose is $20 or $30 and a couple or
three hours out of one lousy month.
All you've got to gain is everything you've
ever lusted for.
Look, stop thinking you're so damn
sophisticated. So damn smart. So far above doing a simple
exercise like this. Let me tell you something...
You Don't Know Shit!
Give Me A Chance To Help You!
Gary C. Halbert
I don't think I have ever given a seminar that is more
important than the one I am putting on December 10, 11
and 12 at the Phoenix Airport Hilton Hotel in
Arizona... and... I have never had such a difficult
time talking with people interested in coming to the
seminar. I first announced the seminar in my September
newsletter and I asked anyone interested in attending
to call and talk with me personally. Many people
called and left messages but I was able to only talk
with about half of them. Then along came Hurricane
Floyd which ruined (for quite some time) any
communication possibilities between myself and my
readers on the Eastern seaboard of the United States.
So, in last month's newsletter, I gave out my
personal telephone number so readers interested in
attending the seminar could call me direct. As I
explained, that phone rings right at my desk and if I am
not in the office, there is an answering machine hooked
up to handle the calls. Well, right after I gave out
that number, we had another hurricane (Irene) that came
through the Keys and made an absolute direct hit on the
area where I live and work. Fortunately, Irene did not
knock out the telephone system. No, instead she knocked
out our entire electrical power supply.
As if that wasn't enough, Hurricane Irene brought so much rain, the
property where I was living with my aunt and uncle was literally turned into
what I call "Lake Halbert." I actually have photos of myself
paddling a boat in the driveway and the yard surrounding the house. My aunt
and uncle occupy the top half of the house and, until Irene, I occupied the
bottom half. My half of the house was completely flooded by the hurricane and
we had no warning from the weather bureau this storm was going to hit us. I
went to sleep one night and when I woke up the next morning and put my feet on
the floor to get out of bed, I was standing in water. Many of my possessions
and furniture were literally floating throughout the apartment.
My aunt and uncle are putting their house up for sale (it's a hell of a
good buy if you want to live in the Florida Keys) and I've had to vacate my
portion of the house. I'm going to be living on a large houseboat (47') which
I bought recently in a little town near Cape Canaveral. My houseboat was
previously owned by an astronaut and he kept it in excellent condition. It's
an ocean-going houseboat with plenty of living room and it even has its own
washer and dryer plus a small office I'm going to use as my on-board computer
room. I'm waiting for my boat to be delivered here and, until then, I am
living in a motel right on U.S. 1 about half a mile from the world-famous
Back to the phone scenario... because of all this lousy weather, people
who tried to call me at the number I gave out in last month's newsletter would
just get a phone that would ring and ring and ring and never be answered
because there was no electrical power to operate the answering machine hooked
up to the phone. When there finally was power, everything was so flooded out
and I was so busy saving what possessions I could, I often couldn't get to the
office for days on end.
So now, if you want to attend the seminar, I'm going to give you
another number which also rings directly at my desk... but... if I'm not there
to answer the phone, you can leave a message (one that will actually reach me)
because this phone is equipped with Ma Bell's voicemail. This means if you
call me and I'm not there to get the call, I'll get your message even if we
should lose electrical power... or... even if we should get flooded again.
A TIP: If you happen to live, as I do, in an area that often
experiences violent weather, I suggest you get rid of any electrically
operated answering machines you might be using and use voicemail provided by
your local telephone company instead.
For whatever it's worth, the last four months have produced the most
consistent period of bad weather this part of Florida has experienced in more
than a century. We have had almost nothing but constant hurricanes and
tropical storms. I read in the "Miami Herald" we are now at the tail
end of the rainy season... but... Mother Nature is delivering us one last slap
in the face in the form of Tropical Storm Katrina.
But wait. What am I saying? It ain't over till the fat lady sings and
for hurricane season... that's not until November 30!
Well anyway, if you haven't signed up for the seminar and you'd like to
attend... but... you'd like to speak with me first, here is the new number for
you to call...
If you're interested, please call soon because... there's not much room
or time left. I just want to be fair and give all my readers an opportunity to
talk with me if they have questions.
Now, if we can just keep Lenny, Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Philippe, Rita,
Stan, Tammy, Vince and Wilma (the rest of the 1999 hurricane names just
waiting for a storm to attach themselves to)... if we can just keep these
bastards out of our hair... perhaps... we can... maybe... make a
couple of staggering steps in a forward direction.
