“I QUIT !!”

Hi Everyone,

I Quit!

That’s right, I quit !

Now this may seem a little weird but it’s not directed at you.

It’s directed at the newspapers I constantly find myself reading.

Let me explain…

At the start of the 2009 I made a conscious, published decision to cease watching the news on T.V.

This was my ‘New Year’s Decision’. You can read the post on my blog here.

To Make A New Year’s Resolution Or Not?

Well, I am proud to say I have managed to do this and I am not missing it one iota.

Now, I need to make another decision and that’s what I am going to do.

I am going to cease reading the newspaper.

Why would I do this I hear you ask.


Every page is filled with ‘hard times, bad-business stories, and doom and gloom of some description.

Now, don’t get me wrong…

Some people are losing their jobs, some people are in financial difficulties and some businesses are closing.


Did you know, First Class Seats on airlines are FULL, even when there are spare seats in economy?

See, the newspapers are like the T.V. news; they keep telling us the sky is falling and that can’t be further from the truth.

If I continue to read the newspapers and focus on the negative world, I would start living in the negative world and that is quite frankly not the way I wish to live.

If you focus on having no money, you will get NO MONEY.

You need to focus on what you want not what you fear.

If you focus on prosperity, happiness and money, that is what you will get prosperity, happiness and money!


It doesn’t happen by just focusing – that belief is baloney.

You must make conscious decisions and change.

For Things To Change First I Must Change.

You need to start doing things differently and ACTION.

Because without action your dreams will remain a dream.

So join me and stop watching the News and Reading the papers they mostly focus on the negative because good news stories do not sell.

There is money everywhere.

It doesn’t disappear. (Well, unless you are the Joker and decide to burn a bunch of it – that’s a Heath Ledger tribute if you didn’t pick it up)

Money moves around and gets transferred, so why can’t it transfer to you.

So come on and join me in saying “I QUIT !”

“I QUIT watching the news and reading papers”;

“I QUIT feeling doom and gloom is all around me”;

“I QUIT getting in discussions how bad everything is”;

“I QUIT talking about anything which won’t make bring me prosperity and money to my life.”

Here’s a confession.

I used to focus on BAD things and engage in topics and then I made a DECISION.

And that was to…

Eliminate “DreamCrushers” from my life.

It’s probably not a real word “DreamCrushers” but it’s mine and they exist !

You know the ones which say, “You can’t do that.” “That will never work.” “How much money are you wasting on…?”

DreamCrushers – WE DON’T NEED THEM !

Eliminate them from your life and get on with your plans.

When you do, things will start changing, for the better.

We both know…

You want to.

We both know, you should commence NOW.  NOT today but NOW.

And you can.

You are the only one who can make that decision and when you do.

You will be the one flying FIRST CLASS.

See, up near the pilots…it;s where you DESERVE TO FLY.

Cheers and Great Selling


PS:  Make a decision today, you deserve to.

  1. Hi Kurt,
    LOVED your ‘I QUIT’ positive thinking email dated 3rd March 2009.
    Focus on the negative..receives negative results. BUT focus on the positive and the world is your oyster!!
    Yes we are in a turbulent time right now BUT this can be used to our advantage, as indeed this is actually a great financial time for those that felt it was out of their reach not so long ago. Think positive and plan, action that plan, the results in time will be rewarding.
    Well done Kurt and have a very rewarding 2009.
