How to Get Mentally Prepared

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

Right now I’m preparing for the Glazer-Kennedy

Info-Summit in Atlanta. I speak Thursday night from

7:30 to 10:30 PM. Many of you will be there and I

look forward to meeting you.

On Friday afternoon I speak for 90 minutes on


That’s 4.5 hours of speaking.

Some people have asked what I do to mentally prepare

for a presentation.

The answer is virtually the same as what I did to prepare

for a wrestling competition or martial arts event. I take time

to be alone. I have no distractions. No tee-vee. No radio. No


I simply sit quietly in a room all alone – and whilst there I

breathe deeply and relax.

Michael Masterson of Early to Rise fame, remarked some months

ago that when I speak I am relaxed almost to the point of non-


I don’t know if I would go THAT far, but I will say that being relaxed

is a major part of success, whether it is sports, speaking, writing,

selling or doing surgery. If you are tense, other people pick up on it

and they become tense, too.

You can always tell when something was difficult for someone to write.

How? Because it’s difficult for you to read.

Same goes for everything in life.

If you can simply relax and let it go, relax and let it flow – without effort –

others will respond to you differently.

Had a surgeon I spoke to some months ago. He told me that the night before

surgery he watches videos of surgery. That’s how he begins his mental preparation.

Then he relaxes and visualizes the result he wants.

When he told me this I was amazed to know that the same procedure I followed

for wrestling and martial arts was nearly the same as what he followed before surgery.

Something to be learned from this.

Study and prepare yourself – then relax, let go and let it flow.

Look forward to seeing y’all in Atlanta. I’ll have an extensive report in

my newsletters for the Elite Gold Crown Program. Look into it to-day –

My Opinion of Lasik Eye Surgery

Monday, October 30th, 2006

On August 31, shortly before going under the

laser to correct my vision, I had 20/50 vision

in my right eye and 20/400 vision in my left.

On October 21, my surgeon, Dr. George Thurber,

of Biloxi, MS, tested me again.

The test took place in between rounds of my most

recent seminar in Tampa. It was Day 4 of five-straight

days of teaching. I had only gotten 3-4 hours of sleep

per night from the day the event began. So you’d think

my vision might be a little off.

And I guess it was. But that’s only if you think 20/15 in

the right eye and 20/25 in the left is a bit off.

Ask me my opinion, though – and I’ll tell you how awesome

it is to be able to read without glasses; how great it feels to

see BOTH sides of the room, all the way to the back, when I

speak; and how thrillng it is to know what my doctor told

me upon examination.

“Matt, if you’re not seeing it – NOBODY is.”


For most of my life I’ve had a lazy eye and it wasn’t getting

any better with age.

Yes, I thought about natural methods of improving my eyesight –

but the fact of the matter is that I already have enough to do each

day and I was tired of having poor vision. I was tired of not being

able to read for long periods of time – of not being able to read the

fine print – as well as the NOT-so-fine print. I was tired of having

to move to a different room with better lighting in order to read something.

I wanted a change NOW – and I was willing to risk what I had

in order to get it – but NOT until I found someone who was “the best” –

as well as someone I liked and trusted.

The idea of having Lasik surgery is frightening, no doubt. No

one wants his eyes operated on. But when I met Dr. Thurber and

talked to him about it, my thinking changed. I relaxed and trusted

that everything would be okay. Most certainly, when I heard that he has

done 5000 surgeries without a single person losing a single line of

vision, I was ready to move forward.

Instead of having the surgery done locally, I flew to Biloxi and stayed

in a hotel for 3 days. I was treated first-class all the way. And when I

flew home on September 1 – I was already a changed man.

I can’t thank Dr. Thurber enough. And I’m passing the word to any and

ALL who are thinking about getting Lasik done. You might not want to

take a flight and visit someone out of your area to have the procedure

done – but for ME, it was the way to go.

I took the flight because I believe in working with those whom

I can wholeheartedly trust.

When it comes to my eyes, trust is of utmost importance – and I hope

it is for you, too. Dr. Thurber earned my trust not only because of his

track record – but because of his kind, warm and friendly demeanor.

He’s a down-to-earth man, and he’s my kind of guy.

I am profoundly grateful to him – and as a show of my gratitude I’m

telling you about his new website. I get nothing for telling you this –

other than the satisfaction that somene else will come to know the

miracle of Lasik, too.

Confidence vs. Arrogance vs. Humility

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Back in my early days as a collegiate wrestler, my

father and I exchanged many letters, most of which

I still have.

In one of my letters I told my father that I was “working

on being more humble.”

He wrote me a lengthy letter explaining what humility is –

and what it isn’t. I never forgot the message.

Before receiving my father’s letter, I thought humility was

saying you’re no good when you are, refusing to blow your

own horn, bowing to your inferiors, talking in a low voice,

taking a job beneath your true worth, never showing passion

or excitement of any kind, never smiling, earning an income

below what you could – and so on.

Earlier today I reviewed an email from a man that I coach. He

was asking similar questions. Our correspondence appears


Hi Matt,

I got the Zero Resistance Living course – am digging in. Question:

How do you square being humble with being confident? I always

seem to have trouble with the line between confidence and arrogance

– in other words I think I hold myself back by being “humble” because

I don’t want to be cocky or arrogant.




Great question. Humility is supposed to be an accurate assessment of

your talents and abilities. If you’re the best at something, it is not humility

to pretend otherwise – just as if you’re lousy at something, it is not real confidence

to pretend you’re great. You can imagine being great – yet that is very different

from telling someone you’re great when you aren’t.

At the same time, some people have a “See, look how humble I am” orientation.

This is also false. It is pure ego and something people quickly read through.

If you’re number one, you can be humble by saying, “I’m the best – but I’m

still working on improving myself because there is always a way to get better.”

This statement encompasses BOTH confidence and humility.

Or, “Today I was at my best. I did a good job. Tomorrow I want to do better.”

That’s confidence. Nothing arrogant about this statement at all.

When I first won a national title in college – I was interviewed by the tee-vee

and papers. Over and over I said stupid things like, “I was lucky.”

Days later when I would be introduced as a “national champion” to others, I

put my head down in shame. I acted embarrassed.

This was NOT humility. Moreover, it would not be cocky to simply smile, thank

the person who introduced me and shake hands with the people before me,

telling THEM I was glad to meet them.

Cockiness or arrogance is a false front designed to protect oneself – or to

showboat for greater attention, publicity, etc. Some of it has a place. Nothing

is either 100% good or 100% bad.

But the arrogance that stinks is that in which the person doesn’t listen to anyone.

He’s got too much knowledge; he’s too smart; has too much Zen. I have no

patience for those who are full of themselves or for those playing the phony

humility game. Both need good kicks in the rear to wake them up.

True, some will not like your confidence – they may even call it arrogance –

but if they’re not successful – pay no heed. They’re afraid of what they don’t

know and jealous of what they don’t have. Your job is NOT getting others’

approval. Your job is being true to what is highest in you.

Why November is YOUR Month

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

In a few days I’ll be making an announcement regarding

my 2007 Universal Health, Strength and Power Seminar.

It’s gonna be a hog roast – in more ways than one, so stay


You’ll want to move fast to make sure you get a seat. Last year

was a sellout – and this year promises to be even better than a

year ago (hard to imagine) with a grand prize for the winner

of the Combat Conditioning Contest for a considerable sum

of dough.

Again, stay tuned.

In the interim, make sure you’re a member of the Matt Furey

Inner Circle – as I give extra special treatment to those who

are ‘in the group’ at these events.

All the October issues of my newsletter and CD have been mailed –

but November promises to be better than ever – with a single dietary

change that virtually anyone can make – and this simple change may

result in you dropping all the extra stubborn bodyfat that has clung to

you no matter what.

Not anymore, my friend. Not anymore.

So make sure you enroll NOW because November is definitely NOT an

issue you’ll be glad you missed. Nope – November will be the issue that

will turn your life around.

Enroll today and you’ll get all of the above – and much more.

Two ways to get the job done:

1. Go to http://www.mattfurey.com/furey_inner_circle.html and

enroll as an annual member.


2. Go to http://www.mattfurey.com/fg324trfsr3ttai.html and sign

on as a monthly test-drive member.

That’s it, my friend.

Don’t Get Caught Up

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

Earlier today I was talking to one of my older brothers

(I have four). He’s a successful businessman – so exchanging

ideas with him can be very productive.

Anyway, he asked me how I was doing after my seminar last

week. I replied, “I’m working on getting caught up.”

“Forget that,” he said. “Focus on what’s important instead.”

I stopped long enough to let my jaw drop.

“Now THAT is a keeper,” I said. “Afterall, the objective is NOT

to get caught up. When you’re in business the idea is to have

so much coming in that you cannot catch up. So you’re right.

Focus on what is most important and the rest will take care of


I realize the above sounds odd to many people. We’re taught to

finish everything each day. And when you have nothing to do each

day, this applies. On the other hand, when your business is doing

well, it’s impossible. You’re FAR better off focusing on what is

most important, then next most important – and so on.

Keep this in mind the next time you are trying to “get caught up.”

Coming to Earth

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

After 5 straight days of teaching and coaching – I am finally

coming back to earth. I say this because whenever I give a seminar,

it is not only a transformational experience for those who attend, but

for myself as well.

When it was all over – I had given all I had. I slept no more than 3-4

hours each night for the entire five days – that’s how excited I was to

be doing what I was doing.

During the event one man came up to me and said, “I get the feeling

that you really LOVE what you’re doing.”

I smiled and told him the answer was “YES.”

I absolutely love getting before a group of people to visit with them

about success living.

At the same time, in order to keep everything in balance, I have

limits on how much I will do and how often. Even when you’re doing

what you love, if you don’t take time to rejuvenate, you will soon begin

hating what you love.

THIS is important.

On Sunday evening, at around 8 PM – I called it quits for the five days.

I showered, changed into casual gear, sat in the restaurant/bar and

visited with members of my MasterMind.

Naturally, some came to me with flashes of inspiration and ideas. When

they did so I paused, wiped my forehead and face, then faced them. Message

received. Matt needs time alone. Give him some space. I appreciated their

understanding very much.

It’s a tough thing to do. You give and give and give. But you must know when

to stop and allow Mother Nature time to recharge and rejuvenate you.

This is something I didn’t do earlier in my life. As a personal trainer back in

California, all I did was train, train, train. This approach never resulted in me

“getting ahead.”

Yes, it’s important to focus on your work and to work hard. But it is equally

important to rest.

Keep this in mind – especially when you’re doing what you LOVE.

The T-Rex Workout

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

There are two types of dinosaurs: those who are

dead and those who, despite all claims of modern

science – are … get this – STILL ALIVE.

It’s true. And I met one yesterday. He’s a T-REX

and a freak of nature.

Truly – this dinosaur is so lifelike you’d think he

was human, like the rest of us.

Naturally, you’re probably curious at this point.

You’re probably thinking, ‘Has Fure-cat finally

lost it.’

Well, there is only one way to get the answer

to such a question – and that is to click the link

I provide you and go see for yourself.

Now, before you click, a bit of warning, this

dinosaur is like you and me. He does a ton

of bodyweight exercises. And he isn’t just

big and strong – he’s ripped and shredded.

He’s got muscles on top of muscles – and they

aren’t like all those worthless greased-up bodybuilder

for-show-only muscles.

I’m watching this dinosaur kick butt and his abs

look like they were carved from granite. His back

looks like the second-coming of Hercules and his

arms are bone-crushingly powerful.

So believe me now and listen to me later – you

MUST go check this LIVING dinosaur out right

My Newest Video Clips

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

The benefits of being a member of The Matt

Furey Inner Circle are compounding like


A couple weeks ago we began adding online

video clips to the “member’s only” portion

of the site. And members are going bonkers.

They’re reeling with excitement when they

see how I have improved my flexibility and

strength in all these movements, despite

being in my 40’s.

I first wrote and produced the DVDs for

Combat Conditioning in the year 2000.

And what I have to teach you in these

formats is correct. Yet, even when you

already do something well, you can still

improve – and even though I’m the teacher –

I am also “always” the student.

I’m continually learning, refining and improving

what I do – and the bodyweight exercises and

programs I champion are no exception.

And so, if you’re not in the Matt Furey Inner

Circle yet – enroll today by going to


I’m not sure how much longer we’re going to be

allowing new members into the group. I may have

to close down subscriptions as I’m not sure how

many people we can handle on the site when

everyone is going in to view the updates we post

each week in the video section.

One good thing is that previous members who

dropped out are not allowed back in – so this

gives extra leeway to get in.

By the way, you can also test-drive for a month

by going to http://mattfurey.com/fg324trfsr3ttai.html

but remember, if you’re a cheap skate who thinks

he can come and go when you please in order to

soak in all the info without the monthly fee – you’re

sadly mistaken. Once you drop – you’re gone for

good. I only want truly committed people in the

group. Lookie Lou’s need not apply.

So jump on this offer NOW, my friend.

My Mother-in-Law Does It

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

My mother-in-law is 65 years old. And she’s Chinese.

A couple years ago she was in bad shape. Knees hurt.

Shoulder hurt. And she wasn’t much for exercise – with

the exception of taking a daily walk.

Well, when I came back from China a year ago with the

Chinese Long-Life System, she suddenly became very,

very interested.

None of the movements were difficult. She could do

everything I was doing. Not only that, but the movements

were fun, invigorating and rejuvenating.

She never misses a day following this routine either.

She looks out the window in the privacy of her own room

and does the exercises.

She doesn’t need any equipment – just her own body.

Today her shoulder no longer hurts; neither does her

knee. And she walks around with the energy of a


This routine has changed her life.

It will change yours, too – if you’re open to it.

Go to http://www.chineseculturesecrets.com/long_life.html

and order NOW.


Matt Furey

P.S. I’ll have to post some pictures of her doing the routine with

me sometime. And BTW, the lady in the photos on the site – the one

here – http://www.chineseculturesecrets.com/long_life.html – is

now 90 and going stronger than ever. Can’t wait to see her again

when I go back to China in December.

What’s Your Winning Routine

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

Each and every day you are doing something

that is either moving you toward your goals or

further away from them.

The same can be said of how you communicate

with yourself; how you use your imagination; how

you talk to yourself.

Having a daily regimen that you plan on doing, then

follow through with – rain or shine, is one

of the hallmarks of the super achiever.

An aspiring as well as seasoned writer may write a

minimum number of words each day. That’s his


Someone else may follow a specific exercise program.

Once again, the program is followed, rain or shine.

Another person might like to paint. Then again, someone

else may enjoy singing, playing piano, reading or making

a few sales calls before breakfast.

Regardless of what the activity is – the daily regimen can

and will increase mind power when you connect it to a

desired outcome.

For example, as a college wrestler – then later on as a

world champion martial artists – I can tell you that there

were many, many practices that were agonizing. At times

my side would ache. Or my hands would shake with ex-


Yet, as hard as things were during certain workouts, I would

picture my goal, and suddenly ‘all was well.’

When I kept my goal in mind, the side ache became bearable

and the pump I felt in my forearms – no biggie.

But when I didn’t focus on my goal – when I simply performed

the activity, things were much harder. There was physical and

psychic resistance. In order to hit Zero Resistance – I simply

changed how I was using my imagination – and the rest was

history. Not only did the workouts get significantly easier – but

I reached my goals as well. A double winner.

I know a man who used this same idea to earn his fortune.

He started on the Internet when he was in his late 20’s. A few

years later, he was pulling in a couple mill per year online.

What he did was simple: Each day he’d get up and read his

goal to himself. He’d read it silently first – then outloud. Then

he’d sit in a chair and visualize hitting his targets. Before long

his website was making some major dough.

I know this person well because I coached him along the way.

I told him what to do and he followed directions.

And one of the biggest directions I gave him was as follows:

Choose the one thing in your business that has the highest

rate of return – and do it EVERYDAY. Choose the thing that

will build your career the fastest – and do it EVERYDAY.

The man listened – and he’s still listening today.

Dr. Maxwell Maltz never looked at going into the Theatre of

the Mind as a ‘sometimes’ activity. It was an every day

deal. Each and every day you take time to play with your

self-image – to imagine better days – even when they’re

already good.

Going into your private movie house is a daily regimen.

It helps clear the cobwebs from your thinking. It helps

remove the resistance you may have to success – and it

does so effortlessly – provided you’ll spend the time.

I suggest you begin with a few minutes per day and gradually

work up to 15-20 minutes. You’ll find that amount of time to

be ‘the highlight’ of your day. You go to that special place

in your imagination where no one can get to you; no one

can bother you; no one can keep you from becoming all

you truly desire.

As a member of the Psycho-Cybernetics Success Group I’ll

make it even easier for you to follow a winning routine. How?

By sending you a mega-powerful Amazing Meditation and

Visualization, on CD, to do each month. Also, by sending you

some other motivational tools that will keep you focused like

a laser beam all day long. Enroll today and get these tools –
