Over 100 Pounds Off – so far

May 10th, 2017

Last weekend I was working with, G, a young man who currently weighs 316 pounds.

53 Pounds Fall Off Man’s Belly

April 24th, 2017

Here’s a little story about a man named Dale,
First time I saw him, he’s big as a killer whale.

I made not one single mention about his big ole belly,
Or how much he loved to drink beer and slam jelly.

Then one day he yells and calls out to me,
Yo, Furey-cat, here’s someone you gotta see.

I did a double-take as I turned round and round,
I recognized the voice, but the body skipped town.

“It’s me. It’s me. Look here you stupid ass,
Forgive my cursing, you know I’m from Mass.”

Dale?
Big Dale?

It’s me,
Can’t you see?

What the hell happened to you?
Did you fight a silverback at the Orlando zoo?

Haha, Fureycat, you’re always so charming.
Can’t you tell, I’ve been eating different farming?

I definitely see a big difference, that’s a fact, my friend,
But there’s no way in hell you didn’t move your rear end.

Right on, per usual, you’re definitely above smoking pot.
I gave up beer and starches, then did hundreds of Hindu squats.

Congratulations, my friend, you’re now an elite member,
of the Furey Faithful group, from now through December.

In fact, I believe your journey is so darn compelling,
I’m betting your story will do most of the selling.

Whatever I can do to help spread your message,
Just promise me now you’ll spare the old adage.

I’m 50 years young, I’m not over the hill,
Helping your members will be a great thrill.

I’ll tell them, when they train with the Furey-cat,
they can truly expect to lose their unwanted fat.

The first time you saw me – you saw a big whale.
Now, I’m so grateful – when you see me as … Dale.

*The above poem written by Ma Tai – the alter ego of Matt Furey, best-selling author of Combat Conditioning and many other books on fitness, martial arts and self-image psychology.

Enroll in the Furey Faithful and follow the truly life-changing system that is working for Dale and so many others.

Go to Bed Late – Get Up Early

December 16th, 2016

If you’re looking for motivation or inspiration to get more done in less time, consider going to bed a bit later – and/or getting up earlier than usual.

Allow me to explain:

Several months ago, I made a decision to get up earlier than usual and slide out the door to walk a minimum of three miles.

This may appear to be an easy task, but I’m a “late to bed” moonlighting type of guy, so I’ve never practiced, believed in or advised others to get up at 5 AM or to go to bed early.

Yes, I realize there are many successful people who swear that getting up early is the hallmark of their success. Similarly, I’m simultaneously aware of the masses who get up early each day and receive no tangible or verifiable benefits.

Additionally, there are many legendary historical figures who worked creatively into the night – as well as innovators who discovered new pathways after midnight.

As a practitioner of Chinese internal martial arts, and a student of Taoist teachings on health and longevity, I’m aware of how the grandmasters have taught for centuries that the power hours of each day are 11 PM – 1 AM and 11 AM – 1 PM.

Think of the person taking a “power lunch” or the innovators and creators who were working after midnight to bring something new into existence. There may not be many of them, but I believe they enjoy a secret that few are aware of.

Personally, many of my best products were either created or finished in the late-evening, early-morning hours, and to celebrate the accomplishment, I slept in.

The ancient Taoists meticulously tracked everything they did, and as a result I was taught, by more than one master teacher, that every hour you spend in dedicated practice, espccially in the evening from 11 PM -1 AM, you obtain the equivalency of two hours of benefits in the form of “internal power.”

If you train for an hour – you get two hours of benefits. If you go for two hours – you get four.

I realize that this structure doesn’t necessarily appeal to those who believe you should get up at 5 AM each day or that you must have eight or nine hours of sleep per day to be a peak performer – yet, I believe there are some definite similarities to the approach.

Here are a few I can verify:

1. You’ll find it infinitely easier to engage in deep concentrated work because the majority of the world is sleeping,

2. You’ll be less prone to interruptions and trivial matters that anyone with a third-grade education can handle.

3. You’ll gain psychological and spiritual benefits, in part because you feel a sense of achievement just from the realization that most people are in bed already.

So, as you can probably see, if I’m going to be up until midnight or later, it’s inconceivable that I should also get up early to go for a jaunt.

Yet, intuitively, I felt this was a shift I needed to and wanted to make.

Upon contemplating the situation, I became aware that following this approach would result in a five or six-hour sleep pattern, rather than the eight or nine hours I was used to getting.

I then thought of something novel and made a psycho-spiritual shift in how I used my imagination as well as how I was utilizing my frontal lobes, the part of the brain involved in planning, organization and the prioritization of one’s day.

I put my ideas on paper in a hand-written journal I keep, then I set my timer to awaken at 5:55 AM, and made an agreement with myself to be out the door within 10 minutes.

When morning came the rebellious side of me that was intent on hitting the snooze button was unbelievably incorrigible.

What are you doing? Who do you think you are, Furecat? You don’t get up this early. This is absolutely stupid. Hit the snooze button and go back to sleep. This is crazy. You already walk five miles a day, you don’t need to do it at THIS HOUR.

As I was about to hit the snooze button, an illuminating awarness flashed before me.

I noted the precise mental picture I had just imaged.

The go-back-to-bed voice I was hearing was mostly a mental image, a mental picture of myself snoozing. At that moment I crafted an idea to transform the image of myself snoozing to one of me getting up and going outdoors for a walk.

This simple change in how I was using my imagination made it incredibly easy to follow through on my plans.

As a result I’m now able to get even more done in less time – so much less that I now do something truly mind-blowing.

I can cover this for you in a future dispatch if you’re game for it.

Or you can apprise yourself of all the nitty-gritty details at my seminar in February.

Until then…

See it. Be it. Have it.

Matt Furey

P.S. I’m thinking that no one reading this email can picture himself or herself in some area of life wherein you’d love to make a change for the better and move to the next level. But then again, maybe you do want to get more done in less time. If so, enroll in the seminar I’m doing with the legendary Ted Nicholas this February in Tampa. It will transform your life in a way unimaginable in common hours.

It’s Way Worse Than You Think

December 14th, 2016

Back in 1995, when I first heard Ted Nicholas speak, he mentioned that the average Americanspends 21 hours per week watching television.

478 Days In a Row is Nothing

December 13th, 2016

I guess I shouldn’t gloat about going 478 days without watching television.

Fake News

December 12th, 2016

Today marks 477 days without television.

You read the above correctly. No tee-vee for me, for four hundred seventy-seven days.

This abstention from hypnosis via the “idiot box” also includes not watching professional sports such as the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and so on.

This means I must either read about what is supposedly going on – or hear about it through the grapevine. Or, if it’s particularly urgent, I can view a very quick clip online, then move on.

About a week ago I started hearing about “fake news.”

Now that’s an interesting term, especially when you consider that almost everything about television is fake.

I’m not just talking about the WWE either.

As the “E” in the above states, it’s “entertainment” – yet the masses plop before the box each day to watch something choreographed and quite possibly predetermined.

Based upon the above, I spend my time away from the television. I don’t turn it on and if it is on when I go somewhere, I avoid looking at it.

Now, you might wonder why I stopped watching television. There are many reasons – but foremost is that it’s designed to be so incredibly addictive that once I start watching, I get nothing done.

My workouts get put on hold. I stop reading. I communicate less with those around me – and then I start feeling lousy. Yet, once the news and sports and entertainment are not a part of my life, I am vibrantly alive and filled with creativity once again.

This leads me to believe the real “fake news” is the news playing inside your brain. The fakery that tells you that you’re nothing, a nobody, that you can’t do anything remarkably well.

Once you turn off the chattering box in the room, the REAL YOU manifests and begins to take charge of your life. Amazingly, you start feeling ALIVE once again.

You feel inspired to live a happier, healthier and more creative life. Your productivity increases and people react to you differently.

You have time to do the things you’ve always wanted to do but weren’t pursuing because your attention was gobbled up by the listless, passive and depression-inducing inactivity of watching television.

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to get yourself into incredible condition, or you’ve wanted to write a book or travel the world.

All of the above are much more easily accomplished when you free yourself from the box.

Challenge yourself to see how many days you can go without. Well over a year ago I was on Day One.

Now I’m on Day 477.

It’s amazing how the days add up when you live them with creativity, and keep track in a hand-written journal each day.

Indubitably, this path is not for everyone – but if you feel an urging in your soul to follow along, then I’m with you.

Matt Furey
