For this assistance I have two videos here that can change your life in a most positive way.
The first video shows that you can refuse to accept the tyranny of reason that modern education tries to impose. Let me explain.
Our Super Spanish program has been growing nicely because so many people are like me… incapable of conjugating verbs or understanding past present and plu perfect tenses (and whatever!) etc.
It seems quite ironic… earning a good living and fulfilled life… as a writer since I failed at grammar and could never diagram a sentence in school. I still get confused about things other than a rumor that you can’t end sentences with certain parts of speech and Winston’s Churchill’s comment about that…. “This is the sort of English up with which I will not put.”
Even funnier is the fact that I teach Spanish when my two years of high school Latin were total abysmal failures. The minute a teacher says something like… “Latin verbs have four main patterns of conjugation. As in a number of other languages, most Latin verbs have an active voice and a passive voice. There also exist deponent and semi-deponent Latin verbs (verbs with a passive form but active meaning), as well as defective verbs (verbs with a perfect form but present meaning)”… my mind has totally freaked out. Semi deponent what?
If you have a passion… pursue it! The heck with what education says we can and cannot do. I love to write and have always enjoyed the process so I just sat down and did it… the English teachers be damned. Do not let anyone tell you why you cannot turn your passion into profit. You do not have to accept the tyranny of their reason.
Writing and speaking languages are experiential not educational processes. The way to get good at them is to then create first… study second.
I receive many emails like this one a reader sent last week: Gary, I have taken 3 Spanish classes here in Cuenca, and a private teacher for 3 months. Not to mention the Pimsler program, and I lived in Mexico for a year as a kid. But i still can’t speak well enough to be confident. I believe it is because everyone teaches the same way. I have also taken and dropped out of 4 college Spanish classes within the 1st month. (doesn’t look good on my transcript, and i am a 3.8 student and on the honor roll – that was just last semester in the US). There is nothing worse than trying hard to learn something when it isn’t taught correctly. Thank you.
Most Spanish courses teach you Spanish grammar. Super Thinking + Spanish teaches communication.
Super Thinking courses teach how to be smarter so you can absorb, retain and recall information. Second, the course teaches how to communicate in Spanish. You can start talking from the very first day and making sentences. Studies have shown that talking is the ONLY way to perfect speaking Spanish. Speaking a language like writing is not like memorizing a poem. These skills are learned in the same way as riding bikes. The process to perfection is experiential not educational. You learn by doing… not studying.
You can do it. We have abilities far beyond what we are taught in school. We do not have to let the tyranny of reason deny us our destiny. Here is proof.
When, in the state of relaxed concentration, we tap into the higher intelligence that we all possess. An example of the human ability is shown in this 3 minute video on relaxed concentration.
This video sent to me by our pronunciation coach, Don Childs, shows a modern day samurai, Isao Machii who can have a pellet fired at him from 70 ft away and draw his sword and cut the pellet into two pieces on the fly.
A scientist in the video explains “This is about processing on an entirely different sensory level, he is not visually processing it, this is a different level of anticipatory processing”.
A normal person would take 3 tenths of a second to process the sound of the gun and by the time that he started to draw the sword, the pellet would have past them.
Watch this video and look at the samurai’s face. He is in a state of complete awareness and knows what the path of the pellet will be in the future and acts to intercept it. He becomes pure action. He is tuned in at the universal level… just as our delegates do in Super Spanish.
If you missed last week’s message here is a ten minute video of Don Childs with me showing how to get started creating Spanish sentences right now.
Because the Super Spanish course really works, attendance has grown to the point that we can afford to provide some full scholarships. This is why I need your help.
Last week we invited readers to apply for a full scholarship to a Super Thinking + Spanish course. We explained that you… our readers, would choose who is awarded this opportunity to attend a course at no charge.
Six applications arrived and all appear deserving… but we only have space for one. Would you help us and vote for the scholarship applicant you feel is most deserving and or will accomplish the most.
Please read the applications below and send your vote by simply writing “Applicant # -” with the applicant number of your choice. Please email this to Cheri at email@example.com
Hello! I was SO excited to read about the possibility of getting a full scholarship to a Super Thinking/ Spanish Course. The course I am most interested in is November 2-3-4 in Florida. I have a very limited income, but with a full scholarship and my sister watching my son, I will be able to pay for transportation to Florida as well as other small expenses that might not be covered.
Here’s my story (short version):
I am hoping to move with my son to Ecuador within the next 2 years and thus far know very little spanish. I am even more excited to learn the Lozanov system!! It will change my life dramatically to be able to think clearly, learn efficiently, and be able to retain more information! I am a single mother of a wonderful 9.5 year old boy who deserves my best, but I’ve been struggling with depression for 12 or so years, and living with a “heavy fog” on my brain, making it extremely difficult to concentrate, remember, and manage stress. I have not been taking depression medication as I feel meds only mask or numb the problem. I truly believe that with new super-thinking strategies, I will overcome my depression and really feel motivated and alive again! It’s time to use all of my great creative ideas for good cause! I wish to impact the world, at least small communities, in an exciting positive way and I believe in giving back whenever and where ever I can! Please please please consider me for a scholarship! Thank you for your time!
I would like to apply for your scholarship program for the March, Mt Dora Super thinking/ Spanish workshop. I am a missionary working for a small, non-denominational organization called Issa International. I have been on a medical sabbatical for over a year with a blood clot on my brain. I have just this month been released by the doctors to go back to work. I work in Tanzania, Cuba and Ecuador. Knowing how to speak Spanish at least conversationally would greatly enhance my work. I have always relied on translators in my work (except for Tanzania because I speak Swahili). But I now work more in the Spanish speaking countries and our budget has taken a serious downturn during my illness. It would help me get back on my feet if I could attend a workshop and return to the field a Spanish conversant. Thank you for considering my application. God’s blessings on you both.
Since my return in 2009 from a year working abroad in India, I have been lost. I had spent everything on a B.F.A. in graphic design and realized I did not want a career in advertising. I could not blindly create while so many starve, pollution grows and more and more trees are cut down.
Scraping by on $400-$800 a month, I have finally found what I can to do. I am selling my car, saving every ounce and heading to Costa Rica in January 2013 to gain a Permaculture Design Certificate. “Permaculture is an ecological design system for sustainability in all aspects of human endeavor. It teaches us how build natural homes, grow our own food, restore diminished landscapes and ecosystems, catch rainwater, build communities and much more.”
If I am able to take your course, I will gain the confidence in helping humanity transistion into peaceful co-existence with nature. I am excited for the future and hope we can share our reality. My timing is still flexible and I can be present in November, December or January. Thank you for providing this opportunity while I hope to hear from you.
Thank you for creating the Super Thinking scholarship. In 2010, I started import/export business in Japan. Before I could add language training and publishing, the earthquake wiped out my market. I faced bankruptcy. Thanks to my language and teaching abilities, I survived, but the debt is significant.
My previous business experience resulted in a two-year contract with a global company. Unfortunately, the internal politics make new projects very difficult. Contract extension may not happen. Either way, I have half a year to prepare an exit strategy or face bankruptcy again.
I use five languages (Polish, Japanese, English, Czech and Russian) and understand written text in another 10. I am half way through developing an online English course for Japanese who are hopeless with languages. I need a special approach like Super Thinking (ST) to make them successful.
There is a big problem in Japan with jobs for new college graduates. Using ST, language training and my international experience, I will be able to assist them in becoming global players.
I want to develop a method to learn 5 languages simultaneously. Based on ST English => Spanish method, I want to add Italian and Brazilian or/and French; maybe Romanian. This would start in Japan, Singapore and Poland.
The next step would be Slavic, Asian and German languages to find language groups I could work with using ST. All this will be supported by publishing and international business consulting projects mainly in Japan and Europe, though with Spanish, the South American market might be very interesting.
Wow! Thanks for posting this Gary! I am also a disabled veteran, suffering from bi-polar disorder, post traumatic syndrome, and loss of hearing in both of my ears. I wear hearing aides, “appliances” as they like to call them. Not what I imagined I would be wearing at 43! My husband and I are both Realtors here in Alabama, I am a stay at home mom and keep my license because after being diagnosed 13 years ago it was my first big accomplishment! We have a sixteen year old at home still, the last in a line of seven, and look forward for him going to college at the University of Alabama where he will study to be an engineer. He wants to travel the world and build for less fortunate countries and the people who reside there. My husband and I both know that what ever social security (if there is any!) and my disability check from Social Security will not allow us to maintain the house we now live, much less pay the bills. We are really studying Equador, and have not only my mom and step-dad, but a few friends that have also expressed interest in Equador! I would appreiciate any insight on how we may get down there for a visit, without costing us an arm and a leg! I am passing on the email that you sent to my husband to see if we can attend one of your classes in Florida! God bless, and hope to see you soon!
The most important one to me right now is the Super Thinking and Spanish. The others close behind.
My problem is qualifying for the scholarship program you just started. (I believe the Law of Attraction works.) I am a Korean Vet with no physical handicaps but I did have a heart attack and a TSA in 2006. I am 83 years young and have quite a variety of interests. I am a widower twice and live alone. With gas prices and real estate taxes on my home; there isn”t much left over with a social security of $955 per month.
However, I would like to attend the course in Jan. 2013 in Mt. Dora, Fl. I can drive there from here easily. Sincerely.
Please send your vote to to Cheri at firstname.lastname@example.org showing “Applicant # -” with the applicant number of your choice.

Five Positive Steps
Join Merri and me as we look at positive ways to prosper during 2013. Here are five ways to gain from the forces of change that can raise havoc with many.
#1: Having your own micro business for extra earnings, freedom, fulfillment and fun.
#2: Living and prospering in lower cost countries or small towns.
#3: Multi currency investing through US brokers and bankers abroad.
#4: Commodities that rise with inflation.
#5: Good value real estate…. especially multi dimensional and agricultural property.
We have specialized for over four decades in helping our readers excel in these five inflation beating opportunities.
The big benefits of belonging to the International Club are the power of repetition, updates and international friendships. As a club member, you become friends with other members as you meet again and again.
Your first saving is on waived seminar fees for the seminars over the next year.
As you will see above and below you can attend Florida & North Carolina seminars. If you attend just two of these seminars, the $1,799 membership fee will have already created a savings for you.
Yet there is more. Much more.

Enough…. Enough with the Bad News.
Our 2013 mantra is BE POSITIVE in this negative world. There is nothing as valuable as rarity but we need to remember that bad news sells. This means the mainstream media has slipped into offering information with an adrenaline rush. Mayhem, murder and natural disasters. These negative events will happen…. globally. We cannot do much about this. Dwelling on insolvable negativity is not good for our health or wealth.
A recent quote from the Abraham Hicks website explains why nicely.
Continuing to tell stories of shortage only continues to contradict your desire for abundance, and you cannot have it both ways: You cannot focus upon unwanted and receive wanted. You cannot focus upon stories about money that make you feel uncomfortable and allow into your experience what makes you feel comfortable. A different story will bring different results: My thoughts are the basis for the attraction of all things that I consider to be good, which includes enough money, and health, for my comfort and joy.
Make 2013 Your Best Year Ever
What we can do is make ourselves Friendlier, More Compassionate, Happier, Stronger, More Energetic with greater intellect. The way to start is to surround ourselves with successful, friendly, compassionate, happy, stronger, smarter, positive people who think as you do.
The International Club brings together experienced, like minded souls, who take a positive view and think outside the box… in constructive, thoughtful, doable ways.
Being in the club surrounds you with successful… positive… like minded souls. This benefit alone is truly powerful stuff!
The courses you can attend free integrate Super Thinking with business and investing ideas and experience that enhance your health and wealth.
Focus on Ecuador & Smalltown USA & Canada
Learn how to create a BIG INCOME by thinking SMALL. At the seminars you meet speakers who are attorneys and real estate experts for both Ecuador and small town USA. You’ll rub shoulders with experts on global investing and pensions who can help you increase and protect your savings and pensions also how to increase the income you earn in positive ways you enjoy as you help your community.
(See a list of speakers you’ll meet at the club meetings along with other club members below).
Absorb through Osmosis
Merri and I are in our 45th year of organizing courses, seminars and newsletters about international and Super Thinking lifestyles. The importance of this sharing… by like minded souls… was reinforced when a delegate from a course sent an email that said:
My Dearest Merri and Gary, Thank you for your most gracious hospitality last weekend. I am just thrilled at being a part of your group. You and Gary were exactly as I imagined you to be, warm friendly, kind, considerate, genuine, helpful, fun, sincere, what else can I say……I felt so comfortable in your presence and learned so much in your course. I was sad to leave the farm that Sunday afternoon. You made us all feel so welcome and cared about. You were so kind to make arrangements for a ride with the other delegates from the Charlotte Airport. They were so nice to me and so helpful, by the time the weekend was over I felt like they were my long lost brothers. Monday morning we all had breakfast at the airport together and I was so sad to see them go, I was sad the weekend was over, perhaps sad is not the right word for how I was feeling perhaps Gratitude is a better way to describe it. Grateful for having the opportunity to share the weekend with such wonderful, like minded Human Beings, in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Thank you Merri and Gary. Thanks to you I now have new hope and a new direction to move forward in my life. I know by attending your classes and conferences that through education and due diligence I will make the right choices.
This delegate’s comments about “belonging and feeling like a brother” to the other delegates is a wonderful refrain we have heard from our readers, year after year.
24 years ago Merri and I created a way that readers can join us to be immersed in a year-long learning program through our International Club.
The ideas behind this program began all those years ago in Vienna, Austria while we were conducting a course there. One of our older delegates, had some sort of attack. The first fear was heart trouble. Several delegates took him to the hospital. Others stayed with him there. I don’t think that delegate was alone for a minute!
What impressed Merri and me was that no one asked the delegates to help this man.
The friendships of delegates sharing many courses had just grown so strong that it was a natural reaction, just as if a family member was ill. Fortunately, it was only travel fatigue and the delegate didn’t miss a session of the course!
When you join our International Club 2013 you become part of a special family. The very first member to join the club all those years ago wrote, Thank you for the enjoyable and informative courses. I am pleased to be part of your international family and look forward to continuing my education at the next course.
His feeling struck a familiar chord. It has always been one of my greatest satisfactions to see how much fun delegates have getting together, sharing information and making friendships as we learn how to improve our health and increase our wealth.
The courses draw like-minded souls. For this reason some delegates come back again and again. They come to learn, but also to be with their many friends made at the courses. When like-minded souls get together again and again to discuss a common purpose, magic happens! I can’t explain it in any other way-but it is true.
In a way our meetings are almost like family reunions. Perhaps it is getting together and reflecting on what has been said and what has been happening.
Learning with those who are also interested in the world creates thoughts that multiply the value of what we gain. This is hard to describe but results are most powerful and wonderful! This is to me is as important as the great financial benefit of attending many of our courses.
See the 2013 seminars in detail below.
We started and have continued the International Club for 24 years because there are wonderful benefits from having repeat delegates at courses. Having repeat delegates makes the whole course somehow more exciting for all. Being a repeat delegate makes it easier to make and keep wealth and to lock in the knowledge you gain. It’s an exciting lifestyle. We have fun, gain adventure, discovery and friendships and share ways to improve our health and wealth!
You can see from the schedule above a very busy schedule for 2013. Very few club members actually attend every seminar. Many attend almost all of them! Of course we hope you be with us for all of them, but even if you attend just two of the seminars, you gain considerable savings.
Another savings: Lifestyle for Two.
We want couples! As a member of the program, you are entitled to bring another person to every single course or tour. The cost for that extra person will be ZERO! You can bring whomever you wish. Bring your spouse, a friend, son or daughter, partner, accountant, adviser. You can bring the same person each time or a different person, whomever you choose to accompany you. (Accommodations and air fares relating to the courses are not included for members, delegates or their guests.)
The International Club fee of $1,799 is less than the price of two seminars.
I invite you to be a member of the International Club which allows you and your guest of your choice to attend all of these courses and tours.
Let’s prosper in these times of change. Won’t you join us in this exciting club and share Merri’s and my lifestyle for the next year? Join us at our farms and visit Ecuador. We look forward to seeing you at as many courses as possible and sharing this wonderful world of abundance and well being with you!
You can attend all of our seminar , courses online courses and more plus $1,246 of online value. Club membership is $1,799.
