New Problems – Old Solutions

Ever feel bewildered?

I do.  There are so many changes.  They create many unexpected or unintended consequences at a faster and faster pace.

It’s hard to figure out what’s ahead and how to prepare for the future.

Take an example of computer games.

Who could have thought they might help destroy baseball.

The Wall Street Journal article “The Latest threat to Pitcher’s Arm” says: the evolution of a million-dollar arm can be halted by any number of injury risks. Throwing too hard, throwing too many pitches, throwing all year round and throwing too many breaking balls have all been linked to the endemic fraying of elbow ligaments and shoulder tendons.

Now, youth pitchers can add to that list one of their favorite off-the-field hobbies.

A new study of elite youth baseball players found what it described as a significant association between extensively playing videogames and elbow or shoulder pain. The study, to be published in the September issue of the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, looked at 200 boys between the ages of 9 and 12 at a national tournament in Japan in 2017.

Researchers from the Tohoku University School of Medicine found that players who spent three or more hours daily on videogames were 5.6 times more likely to have felt elbow or shoulder pain in the prior year than those who played videogames for less than an hour a day.

Personally, as a former baseball fan, I think the business of baseball did enough to ruin the fun in what had been a sport. One could see that coming.

But video games ruining shoulders and elbows?  Who would have thought?

This is just one example. So many ways of life are being changed in such unseeming ways!

Fortunately old books can help us gain new ideas for succeeding in change.

We need to be smarter in this age of rapid change.   The Western mode of teaching did not prepare us for today’s rapid evolution. Yet many of us gained a hidden education that can make our lives better  that a little idea can reveal.


Switch Hitter by Duane Decker Copyright 1953,

This is one of a series of  old baseball books that I read as a child.

Those particular books are special only to me.  The process of using old books to create new ideas can be special to everyone because it highlights an almost unknown way to brainstorm old foundations for business, investing and lifestyle ideas.

Step #1 in the process is spotting a past joy.  Baseball was the past joy for me.

As a voracious reader, when not watching or listening to baseball, I was reading about it.

This series of the baseball books was written by Duane Decker a former combat correspondent on the Leatherneck, the official Marine Corps publication.  Decker loved baseball and wrote a series about an imaginary major league baseball team called the Blue Sox from 1947 to his death in 1964.   Every single one of his Blue Sox books was read.

Step #2 is rediscovering the joy. 

Though I no longer follow the business of baseball these books still turn out to be enjoyable… simple morality tales based on true stories. Showboat Southpaw,  sounds like Sandy Koufax, a young pitcher who blows out his arm trying to set the strikeout record and has to learn both humility and control to salvage his career.   “Switch Hitter” is about a center fielder with incredible talent and a miserable attitude who appears to be remarkably like Mickey Mantle… etc.

Old books that are special to you… those you read when you were young may unleash this special process that can enhance wealth and happiness for you.

Here are the steps we can use in the process.

First, use music to be smarter.

A 2008 psychology research paper by Whitney Sims at The Ohio State University helps explain why this is so when it says:   Another reason that might explain why music increases the learning and recall of text is that memories for music and lyrics may be partially integrated. Research has shown that melody and text are integrated in memory, even when nonsense syllables are used.

When we remember a sound and a word at the same time, we enhance the ability to recall the information.  Hear one recall the vision. See one recall the tune.  That’s recall doubled.

Next, gain the therapeutic value in reading and writing.  

Bibliotherapy allows one to match existing problems to the content of books as therapy.  Bibliotherapy also uses writing as therapy in the same way.   Bibliotherapy has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression and results have been shown to be permanent or long-lasting.

This is an old concept dating back at least to ancient Greeks. Their ancient wisdom  was that the library was a “healing place for the soul”.   In the US  bibliotherapy has a long history with the idea that reading is a healing experience.

A similar technique can be used to create business ideas and to overcome resistance to change.  In our micro business and writing courses we use a technique that integrates the use of Baroque music, relaxation, writing and reading to enhance intellect and stimulate useful business and or writing ideas.

Third, read books you read as a child to open the mind and gain relaxed concentration.   Most bibliotherapy uses books to solve current issues.  Specific reading material relevant to a current life situation is read.  For example, to release grief for the loss of a loved one,  reading about another who has a similar loss may help resolve the grief.

Reading books that you read as a child is more reinforcing, stimulative and informative than resolving.

Reading the old books recalls many formative thoughts, events and ideas that may have been forgotten at the conscious level.  This process reveals many “Aha, that’s why I think or feel this way”.

Reading books from the past helps integrate the present with the past… the conscious with the subconscious and in the process this expands your intellect. 

Plus you will often enjoy the read.

The benefit in business and investing we gain is this… bibliotherapy, using books we loved in the past, creates a special form of relaxed concentration.  This helps create a special type pf brainstorming that is unleashed from our deeper subconscious.   Reading such books can make us smarter by uniting  our past and present and unlocking what we know that we have not recalled in years. This allows us to dwell on the present with wisdoms long buried.

This is a great way to begin new chains of thoughts that can lead to new investing and business ideas… and better more fulfilling lifestyles.

Reduce Stress With Sound


Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Free yourself by becoming smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.


They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Reduce stress.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!


At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!
