Chapter 3: “I Must Be Out of My Mind…” [3 of 5]

In 2007, I found myself $40,000 in credit card debt,
working out of my parents’ basement.

I was depressed, frustrated, broke, and miserable.

Did you ever do that thing where you
transfer your credit card balance from
one zero balance card to another
every six months to avoid paying
credit card fees?

Yep, that’s what I was doing.

But the most frustrating part was,
I knew I had something valuable
to share with the world…

And even though I’d been working on
my business for years…

I still wasn’t sharing my gift or
making money the way I wanted to.

Then one day, I got an email about
a program about how to make money
by sharing your gift.

The course cost about $2,000
($1,997 to be exact)

But as broke as I was and with the debt I was carrying,
it might as well have been 2 million dollars!

But, I had this gut feeling that I’m supposed to
take this course.

So I took what was then the biggest gamble
of my life…

And bought the program.

(Thank God they had a payment plan,
because that’s all I could afford at the time!)

Now at this time, I have a tiny list
of fewer than 900 people.

I devoured the program and studied it
like a madman…

Because since I basically used my last money
to pay for this, I decided to give it everything I’ve got.

I followed my instructor’s advice to the letter…

And put together a teleseminar series where I
taught people my Noah’s System.

Well guess what happened next…

I made over $12,000 from my very first teleseminar series…

From a list of fewer than 900 people.

That was more money than I had ever made in my life.

I was ecstatic. I could finally see the light
at the end of the tunnel.

But there was just one little problem…

I was still working out of my parents’ basement.

I knew I had to get out of there and
start building a new life.

But I didn’t know what to do or where to go.

So I decided to do something that
most people would call “crazy”…

I decided to become what I call an
“Imperfect Action Taker”.

What that meant was that I decided to
keep taking action, even if I didn’t know
how everything was going to turn out.

I kept taking one step a time and
putting one foot in front of the other…

And wouldn’t you know it, I kept making
more and more money teaching my courses.

And paying down my credit card debt
bit by bit.

Then one day, I’m talking with a friend
who happens to live in a little town
in Northeast Ohio…

I tell him that I’m looking for someplace
nice to move to.

And he says, “Well, why don’t you move here?”

Before that moment, I’m not sure that
I could have told you where Ohio was
on a map of the United States.

But for some crazy reason, I decided
to pack everything I owned into my
1996 Toyota Camry and move to
this quaint little town in Northeast Ohio.

I get there and my very first thought is…

“What am I doing? I must be out of my mind.

“I’ve got to start my whole life over again
from scratch. What was I thinking?”

But then something amazing and unexpected happened…

Less than a month later, my friend
introduces me to one of his friends…

Who in turn introduces me to this beautiful
little blonde named Babette.

And the rest is history…

You see, the problem most of us face is that,
because we’ve been beaten down and
beaten up by life…

We have trained ourselves to not believe
in ourselves.

We start with desire: You want something.

Next comes belief: You either believe that
you can be/do/have that thing you want, or
you don’t.

Then comes action: Your actions spring
from your beliefs.

If you believe that you can’t be/do/have
the thing you desire…

You won’t take much action…

Which means you most likely won’t get
the thing you want…

Which means you’ll prove yourself right.

But what if you started to believe that
you can be/do/have the thing you desire?

You’ll start taking action and keep taking action…

And then what happens?

When you have a desire, believe, and take action,
that means you always get everything you want, right?


(crickets chirping)

That would be, ah, no.

I know that many people in our industry
don’t like to talk about this…

But the fact is that we have all had
the experience of desiring something,
really believing we were going to get it,
taking action, and then . . .

Not getting it.

Look, you and I have had plenty of disappointments,
setbacks, failures, and things not go our way…

Even when we did everything “right”!

What this means, then, is that after
desire, belief, and action comes the result.

You want something…

You believe something…

You do something…

And then something happens.

However (and this is one of the most
frustrating parts about life), there are
two kinds of results we can experience…

Desired results and undesired results.

Desired results are when you get what you wanted.

You get the date, you win the award,
you lose the weight, you land the big client,
and so on.

Undesired results, on the other hand,
are when you don’t get what you wanted.

You don’t get the date, you don’t win the award,
you don’t lose the weight, you don’t land the client, etc.

The question is…

What are you going to do when you keep getting
undesired results for that thing you really want?

How you answer that question is one of the
greatest determinants of whether you succeed
or fail in life.

So, your homework assignment for today
is simple…

Tell me what you do when you keep
getting undesired results for that thing
you really, really want.

    Whenever I used to get undesired results I would think why can’t I achieve my desires? What am I doing wrong? Is missing taking action on a daily basis my stumbling block to success? Admittedly, I haven’t reviewed my business plan for a few weeks because I have exhausted researching my idea as far as I can go. However, I am now thinking that there are other options i should review in my quest to achieve my burning desires. In addition, having read the second lesson where Dr. Noah advises me to think of my desires, believe that they WILL materialise into my reality, take action, then await the results to enter my reality, I strongly believe without any doubt that I WILL achieve my desires. However, I am still unsure when doing all that Dr. Noah suggests why my results are not materialised into my reality. I now know, think and believe that leaving my business plan on hold for a few weeks is not keeping my desire alive. This only came to me whilst posting my comments because I believe by returning back to my desires will generate more BURNING DESIRES that will unfold into my reality swiftly. Eureka! I think I am getting it AT LAST – thank you Dr. Noah.

    What do you do when you get the undesired results, Pause, take a deep breath, step back ,and reanalyze what it is your doing. try and look at the situation differently, If your doing everything right then you are only a millimeter off from success 😀

    When I do not get results I desire, I work harder at non paying work, consume less, be more still in my actions toward money, become even more humble, hang on even harder to my personal code of ethics so I will not end up for any length of time – cheating myself by lowering my ethics standards…and I end up getting sicker & sicker, living less & less to avoid some of the physical & emotional pain. I do not give up. I have been “runnin on empty” for 20 years, doing, searching, researching, trying to find what my gift is now that I am unable physically to do my beloved trades work. Lots of my dreams have come true, so I live in humble gratitude endlessly, but that lifestyle has not earned me money of my personal making, other than having temporary financial help from my father & one friend, because they believe in me. I have been told I could run a giant company, but being with people makes me very nervous & more sickly, so that is not a goal of my thoughts & dreams. Doesn’t sound 100% positive, I know.

    When I receive undesired results, I go back to the drawing board. I evaluate the action I took and decide if I need to ‘tweak’ my steps, or formulate another plan of action. However, I do realize that sometimes you need to give up and/or let things settle. To quote Katy Perry:

    “Maybe you reason why all the doors are closed
    So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
    Like a lightning bolt, your heart will glow
    And when it’s time you’ll know”

    Think about your talents and how you could bring them to the world. Create a plan of action and take one step at a time.

    P.S. I had no idea that Noah lived in the Cleveland/Akron area. I too live in the Cleveland/Akron area; I moved back to Ohio from Arizona in 2010. I can’t wait to read “The Book of Afformations: Discovering the Missing Piece to Abundant Health, Wealth, Love, and Happiness.”

    I think at this point in time I just need to stay the course a while longer and see what develops.
