South of Jewfish Creek
Friend & Subscriber,
in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run
faster than the fastest lion... or... it will be
a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest
gazelle... or... it will starve to death.
matter whether you are a gazelle or a lion, when the
sun comes up... you better be running."
You know, I used to think if I worked hard
enough, remained clear-headed enough, remained disciplined
enough, was clever enough, honest enough, creative enough,
good-hearted enough... and... in general, did enough of
everything I needed to do... that someday... I would get to a
"sweet spot" where I could just kick back and enjoy
Me and everyone I cared about would be
healthy. Financial problems would be a joke. I'd have so much
money stashed away, I would be able to laugh at the money
worries of lesser mortals. I'd have the love of a good woman
(maybe more than
one) and an endless supply of everything great. Love.
Money. Sex. Health. Fame. Friends. Adoring fans. You name it,
I'd have it. I'd have it all.
I'd wake up in the morning, stretch, splash
some water on my face, drink a cup of coffee, walk out on my
sun deck, look out at the ocean... and... my big decision of
the day would be... 'what pleasant thing shall I do to amuse myself today?'
Well, guess what? In spite of all my
successes, all my luck, all my doing everything just so...
that "sweet spot"... has always managed to elude me.
Finally, as we approach the beginning of an entirely new
century, I have managed to figure out why I can't find that
"sweet spot." Simply put...
Not in this world anyway. Show me a guy worth
100 gazillion dollars and I guarantee, he won't be in that
"sweet spot." He'll have 167 things on his "to
do" list. He won't have enough time or energy to have a
real and satisfying relationship with a member of the opposite
sex. And he'll frantically be trying to juggle 30,000 balls in
the air all at the same time.
Show me the very best marriage or relationship
you know about. Show me a couple so "right" for each
other they absolutely "glow" when they are together.
Let me hire a private detective to record their lives with
hidden microphones and TV cameras... and then... I guarantee
you will be astonished
at how much stress they
are dealing with in their lives!
Show me any retired person you know. Pick
someone who has meticulously prepared for his or her
retirement. Let's put the hidden cameras and microphones on
that person and what will we find? Unexpected aches and pains?
Loneliness? Despair? Poor health? Depression? Etc.
That's the sound of me ending my rant on the
morbidity of life. Life is not necessarily morbid. It's
not necessarily joyous either. You know what life really is? It's
a conveyer belt! A conveyer belt of problems,
opportunities, joyous events, horrible events, good news, bad
news... everything you can imagine. But, this
conveyer belt was not designed by man; it was designed by a
DUDE just a tad smarter than us mere mortals. And guess what
else? There ain't NO mechanical problems with HIS conveyer
belt... and... that damn thing... ain't
never gonna stop moving! Truth be told, that sucker seems
to me to be speeding up every
You're on that treadmill. So am I. So is
everybody else on this planet still lucky enough to be drawing
breath. Other than the grave, we don't really have a choice.
As my friend, Dr. Joachim DePosada pointed out in that little
tale about the gazelle and the lion...
The Sun Comes Up,
We Better Be Running!
So what? Well, here's so what: Since we don't
have any real choice about whether or not we are going to run
"the race of life," my idea is this:
For As Long As We Can,
Let's You And I Be
The Fastest, Strongest And
Most Ferocious Lions
In The Whole Damn Jungle!
Let's not starve; let's not be eaten; let's thrive!
Here's my plan: I occasionally run an ad in Investor's Business Daily with the headline, "How To Make Up To 15
Profitable Trades Every Single Day The Market Is Open!"
That little ad is designed to get people to call my answering
service and request a copy of my confidential report which
explains my new stock trading system. I think you've already
seen a copy of that ad in this newsletter but, since I suffer
from an advanced case of "CRS"*, I'm going to
reprint it right here just to make sure.
Free Report Reveals...
To Make Up
To 15 Profitable
Single Day The
Market Is Open!
trading system works like a Swiss watch. However, it
does not work with bulletin board or "pink
This system lets you make up to 15 profitable trades
per day... but... it only works with stocks listed on
the NYSE, AMEX or
NASDAQ exchanges. This is not
day-trading... but... most of your trades (about 90%
of them) will be completed in approximately 40
minutes. In other words, if you buy a stock at 11:00
a.m., you will probably have sold it (at a
double-digit percentage profit) well before noon.
system is not for everybody. If you can't pay
attention to the stock market for at least 90 minutes
per day... and... if you can't scrape together $8,000
or $9,000 to get started, this system is not for you.
On the other hand, if this is not a problem for you...
then... you should read my free report immediately!
easy to get a copy. All you have to do is call my
answering service, leave your name and address...
and... we will send the report to you by First-Class
Mail the same day we receive your call.
If you happened to read that ad and requested
a copy of my report, I'm sure you'll remember receiving it. I
sent it by Federal Express... and... along with the report was
a personalized letter addressed to you with a $1.00 bill
attached to the first page... so... I would be sure to catch
There was also an audio tape included with the
I've learned a very valuable lesson from
running that ad. I've been so swamped with people interested,
I haven't been able to reach each caller. I took on so many
students and, I ended up working so many hours, it started to
affect my health. I was working up to 14 hours per day and
there were some days I literally "forgot" to eat. I
got my youngest son to help me out and, at first, I thought
that would take off the pressure.
But, it didn't. The students just kept coming
and coming and my son started to get as exhausted as I was.
Our fee to teach someone the stock trading system was $3,700
and, in spite of that high price, the students still
kept coming! We were ruining our health trying to keep up.
day, I just quit.
On that particular day, I had seven new
students ready to go... and... I told them to keep their money
because, I literally had to take some time off. Can you
imagine that? I could have made $25,900 in a single day...
and... in spite of that... I quit.
It's not like I don't need the money either. I
now have a special set of circumstances in my life... that
requires... (in order for me to continue to help certain
people whom I love with all my heart) I make a considerable
amount of money.
Those circumstances are personal and I'm not
going to discuss them here.
Anyway, I got to thinking: Why don't I follow
my own advice? Why don't I teach this stock-trading system at
a seminar... have it audio and video taped... and then... sell
the tapes? That way,
I can stop doing all this personalized instruction and take
some time off so I can get a little bit of enjoyment out of my
life. (By the way, I continually modify my trading system...
and now... I've got it where you can make all your trades
early in the morning and go do something else with the rest of
And, I got to thinking even more: Why not (at
the same time) don't I give an updated version of my "How
To Write A Sales Letter That Will Make You Rich"
seminar? I can include all the new Internet stuff I've
discovered and give my students a jump start on writing the
kind of copy that's going to work most effectively in the
And, I got to thinking even more: Why don't I
teach every detail you need to know to have a profitable
website on the Internet?
And, I got to thinking even more: Why don't I
make this the absolute best and most complete seminar of this
entire century? Why don't I do one final end-of-the-century
seminar... and... tell everything
Why don't I do a seminar so fantastic that Jay
Abraham, Terry Hunefeld, Brian Kay, Dan Kennedy, Michael
Kimble, Bill Myers, Joe Polish, Tony Robbins, and all the rest
of them... will be too
ashamed to ever show their faces in public again?
I'm gonna do it. Damn it, I'm gonna do it! You
know what I'm gonna call this seminar? It's gonna be...
Masters Of The Millennium Seminar!"
It's the end of the century and I'm going to
spill it all. Hell, I may as well. I can't use all this
knowledge anyway. As I've often said, "I
have the same ability to manage a business as a pig has to
solve geometry problems."
But, make no mistake: Just because I can't
manage doesn't mean I can't teach!
I'll tell you what: I've got more to teach than all the rest
of the ever-growing tribe of "Gary Halbert
Wannabe's" all put together. Here's a sample of what I
will be teaching at this seminar:

could go on and on but, I'm not going to. However, I do want
you to know, I am setting aside an entire day (maybe two days, if necessary) at this seminar where I will attempt to
answer all questions from all attendees of the seminar.
Whatever your goals are, I will try to help you achieve them.
Whatever your problems are, I will try to help you solve them.
Basically, what I want to teach you is this...
The Best Ways In The
World To Become Rich
Before The Year 2,000
Is Even Half-Way Over!
Look, veterans of my past seminars have said
there is no way to accurately describe what happens at these
events. Each day starts at fever pitch... and... it continues
to go up from there... until... I literally have to force
everyone to go to bed for the night so I can
"re-juice" my brain for the next session.
Would you like to know who are the most likely
people you are going to meet when you come to a Gary Halbert
seminar? It's simple: It's often someone who's been to a previous
seminar. You see, often, after a person leaves one of my
seminars, he goes out and makes so much money so fast, the
expense of coming to another seminar is almost of no
consequence. I do not exaggerate when I say that often, when a
person comes to one of my seminars it is...
A Life Transforming Event!
Where am I going to have this seminar? How
long will it last? How much is it going to cost?
Actually, there are certain
"details" of this seminar I don't want to reveal
unless you are a serious
potential attendee. The nature of this seminar is such, I
don't want anyone to attend... unless... they talk with me on
the phone first. The conversation won't be overly long...
but... it will be important.
I hope you're interested. If so, call 1-305-534-7577 or fax
1-352-861-1665 and leave a number and the best time I can
But... call now! I am writing this
letter on the last day of August which means you will be
receiving it well after we are already into the month of
September... which... does not leave us a lot of extra
time to get this dealybop organized and up and running. If you
come to this seminar, you are going to start the next century
as the baddest ass in the jungle. You know what my attendees
are gonna call you if you are a non-attendee? It can be summed
up in one word:
Gary C. Halbert
don't usually dedicate my seminars but, I sure am going
to dedicate this one. This one is for my daughter, her
husband and their new-born baby girl. Cindy is my oldest
child and she just blessed me with a beautiful new
granddaughter named Rosannah Antonia Seger.
there never seems to be any roses without thorns, does
there? Cindy went in to have a normal birth and ended up
having to have a Caesarean. It seems she had a benign
tumor in her uterus... the
size of an orange... that... the
doctors somehow failed to previously notice! This
caused her to almost lose her life five different times.
She had so much internal bleeding, they found an entire
liter of blood in just her uterus. Her blood pressure
dropped to practically nothing. Her heart became
arrhythmic and nearly stopped. And on and on.
the while, her lovable, big lug of a husband, Anton
"Big Mac" Seger was beside himself with worry.
Cindy is out of intensive care now and in a non-critical
section of the hospital. She should be released from the
hospital altogether in about a week after the iron count
of her blood is back to normal.
couldn't be more proud of her. She was on that damned
conveyer belt and it started to go 1,000 MPH... but...
my baby girl hung in there!
