The Core of Success


How do we get to the core of true success?   Perhaps  we can get one angle on this if we bore to the core of Apple’s success.

An article in the December 1 to 7, 2012 Economist entitled “Technology giants at war – Another game of thrones”
Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon are at each other’s throats in all sorts of ways.

Economist Chart

Chart from Economist article.

This chart shows how incredibly successful Apple has become.

We’ll see how Relaxed Concentration is a core part of this success in a moment…  first, let’s see why relaxed concentration can be extra important now.

“Technology giants at war – Another game of thrones” says:  Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon—are in furious flux. The death last year of Steve Jobs, Apple’s monarch, robbed the technology world of the nearest thing that it had to royalty. But even before Jobs’s passing, tension was growing between the great powers of the web generation as the onset of mobile computing upset the previous balance of power.

Nor has the industry ever seen such young and feisty firms—Apple, the oldest of the quartet, was founded in 1976—with so much financial firepower. Each of the companies has developed a powerful business model.

The battlefields on which the big four are fighting are, like most battlefields, messy and confusing. They are also numerous. Apple and Google are crossing swords in operating systems for smartphones and tablet computers; both firms and Amazon are butting heads in hardware; Google and Facebook have become sworn enemies in social networking; some of the other protagonists even have designs on e-commerce, which has long been Amazon’s stronghold.

With the battlefields seeming to multiply every quarter—mobile wallets, cloud computing and who knows what else—picking out the strategic shifts over the tactical setbacks is hard.

In other words… our future… the way we and our children and grandchildren might live will be determined in a big way by a huge messy battle waged by young companies toward an outcome that no one can logically know.

This is why we need to think beyond logic and this is where Super Thinking comes in.

The process we call Super Thinking may also have had a lot to do with why Apple currently has more market value… more revenue. more cash and more profit than Amazon, Google and Facebook combined.

This may be because Steven Jobs used Super Thinking.

I first started began my exploration of Super Thinking after hearing a quote from Aristotle Onassis.   He said that you do not need an astrologer to be a millionaire but to be a billionaire you do.  Astrology is a way of thinking beyond logic.

Later, I was a speaker at a Cayman Island investing seminar with John Templeton.  He explained that he did everything to stay on top of trends but then also reviewed everything with a black box…. a form of thinking beyond logic.

Even later while conducting a book signing for my novel “The 65th Octave” I gave a talk about Super Thinking because this is the core of that book.   One attendee, began crying.  She explained that she had been Warren Buffet’s personal assistant and that she was so sorry because Buffet and Charlie Munger used these principles and encouraged her to use them, but she had ignored them.

Each of these events reinforced my quest to gain greater intelligence by thinking outside the box.  Or better my goal was to clarify the understanding  that there isn’t and never was a box to think in or out of.  Instead thinking creates the box and our reality… or lack thereof.

Now some are saying that Steve Jobs was a Mystic and had access to some sort of Super Thinking wisdom that went beyond what most people achieve.

Jobs’ biographer, Walter Isaacson, confirmed that Jobs  had a lifelong passion following basic precepts of Eastern religions, such as the emphasis on experiential prana, wisdom or cognitive understanding that is intuitively experienced through concentration of the mind.

I have read that Jobs loved the book “Autobiography of a Yogi”.  This is one of my favorites along with “How to Know God” translations Patanjali by Isherwood.

“Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda helps us understand how and why we are more than our physical bodies.

Isaacson writes that on Job’s last holiday… just before his transition…  the only book he read was “Autobiography of a Yogi”.

Was Jobs balancing his brain waves as we learn to do in our Super Thinking courses?

We live in a world of such rapid change that it is impossible to logically understand what is going to happen so we need ways to expand our intelligence.

One path to Super Thinking is music.

Research at a University of North Carolina website entitled “Music Can Help You Study” says:  Did you know music can help you study? Studies have shown that the right kind of music can help you relax your mind which enables you to concentrate better. Perfect to studying, doing homework or studying for a test or exam. It cuts down on distractions and helps you focus on your work.

The most cited study is the “Mozart Effect” a set of research results that indicate that listening to Mozart’s music may induce a short-term improvement on the performance of certain kinds of mental tasks known as “spatial-temporal reasoning” which is the ability to think out long-term, more abstract solutions to logical problems that arise.

What Kind of Music Helps You Study?

There are many types of music that have been shown to put your mind in study mode. Here are a few of the most mentioned.
Baroque classical music is said to have mind-boosting effects. Productivity writer David Allen of “Getting Things Done” fame has said he prefers music like Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons,” Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #3, and other Baroque tunes.   Others say that music at 60 beats-per-minute is required to put the brain in a “bright and breezy” frame of mind. In this state your thinking and creativity are said to be easier. Concertos for Recorder – Telemann & Vivaldi is recommended.

How does this work?

Music is one way to attain a state of relaxed concentration.

Concentration is the most rewarded ability on earth… the longer one can concentrate on one thing… the more one can accomplish… the more the knowing… the understanding…. the wealth of an act.

There are three steps to being unbelievably smarter in a relaxed way…  #1: having correct thoughts… #2: being able to focus on these thoughts and #3: being able to stay focused on the correct thoughts.

A comparison on the benefits of meditation and Baroque Music can help us see how to attain the state of relaxed concentration.  This study compares Transcendental Meditation. Since TM is the most documented form of meditation worldwide, it lends itself to a comparison with Super Thinking.

Below, we can see the physiological changes during sessions of listening to certain types of music as compared to TM Meditation.

Meditation creates a state of “Restful Alertness”…. which is great for tuning into deeper levels of intelligence.

Music, however, creates “Relaxed Concentration” the state one wants to attain during study and action.

This is the first of three steps we use in the Super Thinking portion of courses.

Three events can be used… to get in this state of total relaxed concentration.

Music is one step.   Integrating our brain waves is the second.

Integrating the Brain Step Two.

Frequency Modulation works by focusing on the learner… rather than data.  We all have enough data.  FM “grows the learner” rather than just expands the information.  The explosion of data we must all process everyday means there is too much information to process already.  Let’s view this learning in terms of plumbing to outline what “Growing the Learner”  means.

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 to first create a six inch pipe and then an even larger pipe…a never ending expansion of abilities!

FM (Frequency Modulation) integrates our brain waves.

Here are details about brain waves from an article in Scientific American entitled “What is the Function of the Brainwaves?” by  Ned Herrmann an educator who has developed models of brain activity and integrated them into teaching and management training. Before founding the Ned Herrmann Group in 1980, he headed management education at General Electric, where he developed many of his ideas. Here is his explanation.

It is well known that the brain is an electrochemical organ; researchers have speculated that a fully functioning brain can generate as much as 10 watts of electrical power. Other more conservative investigators calculate that if all 10 billion interconnected nerve cells discharged at one time that a single electrode placed on the human scalp would record something like five millionths to 50 millionths of a volt. If you had enough scalps hooked up you might be able to light a flashlight bulb.

Even though this electrical power is very limited, it does occur in very specific ways that are characteristic of the human brain. Electrical activity emanating from the brain is displayed in the form of brainwaves. There are four categories of these brainwaves, ranging from the most activity to the least activity. When the brain is aroused and actively engaged in mental activities, it generates beta waves. These beta waves are of relatively low amplitude, and are the fastest of the four different brainwaves. The frequency of beta waves ranges from 15 to 40 cycles a second. Beta waves are characteristics of a strongly engaged mind. A person in active conversation would be in beta. A debater would be in high beta. A person making a speech, or a teacher, or a talk show host would all be in beta when they are engaged in their work.

The next brainwave category in order of frequency is alpha. Where beta represented arousal, alpha represents non-arousal. Alpha brainwaves are slower, and higher in amplitude. Their frequency ranges from 9 to 14 cycles per second. A person who has completed a task and sits down to rest is often in an alpha state. A person who takes time out to reflect or meditate is usually in an alpha state. A person who takes a break from a conference and walks in the garden is often in an alpha state.

The next state, theta brainwaves, are typically of even greater amplitude and slower frequency. This frequency range is normally between 5 and 8 cycles a second. A person who has taken time off from a task and begins to daydream is often in a theta brainwave state. A person who is driving on a freeway, and discovers that they can’t recall the last five miles, is often in a theta state–induced by the process of freeway driving. The repetitious nature of that form of driving compared to a country road would differentiate a theta state and a beta state in order to perform the driving task safely.

Individuals who do a lot of freeway driving often get good ideas during those periods when they are in theta. Individuals who run outdoors often are in the state of mental relaxation that is slower than alpha and when in theta, they are prone to a flow of ideas. This can also occur in the shower or tub or even while shaving or brushing your hair. It is a state where tasks become so automatic that you can mentally disengage from them. The ideation that can take place during the theta state is often free flow and occurs without censorship or guilt. It is typically a very positive mental state.

The final brainwave state is delta. Here the brainwaves are of the greatest amplitude and slowest frequency. They typically center around a range of 1.5 to 4 cycles per second. They never go down to zero because that would mean that you were brain dead. But, deep dreamless sleep would take you down to the lowest frequency. Typically, 2 to 3 cycles a second.

When we go to bed and read for a few minutes before attempting sleep, we are likely to be in low beta. When we put the book down, turn off the lights and close our eyes, our brainwaves will descend from beta, to alpha, to theta and finally, when we fall asleep, to delta.

It is a well known fact that humans dream in 90 minute cycles. When the delta brainwave frequencies increase into the frequency of theta brainwaves, active dreaming takes place and often becomes more experiential to the person.

Typically, when this occurs there is rapid eye movement, which is characteristic of active dreaming. This is called REM, and is a well known phenomenon.

When an individual awakes from a deep sleep in preparation for getting up, their brainwave frequencies will increase through the different specific stages of brainwave activity. That is, they will increase from delta to theta and then to alpha and finally, when the alarm goes off, into beta. If that individual hits the snooze alarm button they will drop in frequency to a non-aroused state, or even into theta, or sometimes fall back to sleep in delta. During this awakening cycle it is possible for individuals to stay in the theta state for an extended period of say, five to 15 minutes–which would allow them to have a free flow of ideas about yesterday’s events or to contemplate the activities of the forthcoming day. This time can be an extremely productive and can be a period of very meaningful and creative mental activity.

In summary, there are four brainwave states that range from the high amplitude, low frequency delta to the low amplitude, high frequency beta. These brainwave states range from deep dreamless sleep to high arousal. The same four brainwave states are common to the human species. Men, women and children of all ages experience the same characteristic brainwaves. They are consistent across cultures and country boundaries.

Research has shown that although one brainwave state may predominate at any given time, depending on the activity level of the individual, the remaining three brain states are present in the mix of brainwaves at all times. In other words, while somebody is an aroused state and exhibiting a beta brainwave pattern, there also exists in that person’s brain a component of alpha, theta and delta, even though these may be present only at the trace level.

It has been my personal experience that knowledge of brainwave states enhances a person’s ability to make use of the specialized characteristics of those states: these include being mentally productive across a wide range of activities, such as being intensely focused, relaxed, creative and in restful sleep.  Scientific American  December 22, 1997.

Here is my thinking about the power of brain waves.

Our Beta waves tap into the local news. This is the part of our being that takes care of the here and now…the space around us.  This is what we call logic and it is a vital tool. Nothing is more important than know what conditions are in the here and now.   However mankind is so dependent on this logic that that often the messages are ignored coming from our other brain waves that we can sum up by calling them intuition.

Our Alpha waves connect us to the regional news. This is a much deeper and broader area of intelligence too vast for our prefrontal logical brain to compute on its own. When we tap into Alpha we get intuitive creative flashes we could never just think up.  If there is about to be an earthquake in our region, all animals know it. Dogs will howl.  Roosters will crow. Birds will fly away.  Humans have this intuition as well.  Yet we can be so steeped in our logic… that we ignore it.

Theta connects brain waves which connect with the global news.   This an even deeper vaster level of intelligence.  At some level we are in touch with anything and everything that happens wherever int he world.   Here we need the filter of our logic. For our mind to process all this data would be like running many yottabytes squared of information through a 64K processor.

At some level we are in touch with everything that happens in the world.

Delta waves are our connection to the universal news right down to our quantum state.   This is an intelligence so vast that we cannot even imagine it.  Here according to quantum science we are even in touch with the past and future…even other universes in a multiverse. We must be in a dream state where the physical boundaries strip away. In Delta we can be in two places at once, know all things and even fly.

When we allow these waves to interconnect freely we gain access to infinite knowledge and unimaginable intellect.

How to get Traction is the next step.   After we get in tune with all our brainwaves, we need a way of putting  the data into usable form.   We need a way of completing the impossible task of defining infinity.  This requires a filter and a recognition system which we teach in our Super Thinking courses.

Increase…. faster…. change.  This is the core of the challenge we face in this era and this is a core in the success that Apple has attained in this environment.   

We hope to help you become a Super Thinker in 2013 and our Super Spanish teachers have added three new Super Thinking + Spanish courses for this winter.

Gary Scott at a Super Thinking + Spanish course explaining the air, fire, water cycles we have each day so we know the best to to eat… exercise… study.

Delegates at a Super Thinking + Spanish course  listening to Baroque music.

I am often asked about our Super Thinking + Spanish course, “Can I learn Spanish in just three days – Really?”   This part of the course helps delegates go beyond just Spanish and enhances their ability in thinking, investing and business… even improves their health.

The second part of this system makes Super Thinking + Spanish  completely different from any other Spanish course.

An article at www.livescience.com article entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone Who Can Speak 2 languages” explains why most North Americans never learn Spanish.  The article says (bolds are mine):  WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many Americans don’t learn a second or a third language from birth, let alone a language that the CIA or U.S. Foreign Service might want. The situation has forced U.S. government agencies to learn how to cultivate the most talented second-language speakers from among college students with little to no other-language expertise.

The Quantum Thinking + Spanish course is different from other programs in three ways.

#1: We stay in the infinitive so our system avoids all conjugation.  The sentence structure is correct. Meanings are correct.  Understanding by listening is correct but grammar is avoided.  The courses teaches communication… NOT language. There are no conjugations of verbs… no adjectives… no nouns…that is talk of all of this…we use those but we do so in a manner which has no confusion.   The task of dealing with conjugations and parts of language stops most English speakers from even getting started.

#2: We give 4005 Spanish and English words that are the same. Our course provides 17 simple lessons that unlocks all these words and provides an instant vocabulary with no memorization required…it is just pure fun to know, remember and come alive.

#3: Delegates learn how to create and say Spanish sentences from the very first morning. What we create we never forget. What we memorize we readily forget.

Gain From Pandemics – Riots & Election Volatility

On top of the pandemic… and the riots, another election on its way… all the robo calls from politicians… the dirty tricks and the innumerable amounts of nonsense this vital process brings.

However America’s politics turn out, one thing is sure, there will be volatility in stock markets during the election process.

The first reason markets will bounce has nothing to do with politics or policies.   A market correction was due regardless of the party or the person in office and COVID-19 was a pretty good excuse for it to suddenly drop.  Expect plenty more volatility.  Whether the economy recovers slowly or quickly, history suggests that the US market will do a lot of moving up and down.

Second the new politics has created an uncertain era.  Everyone has been shaken over the past three years whether they are pleased with the government or not.

Nothing frightens markets like uncertainty. 

What more could we ask for… an uncertain COVID-19 future and riots in 30 major cities.

Well interest rates could be a dark horse.  I the massive government handouts create inflation, interest rates will rise and rising interest rates will push stock market prices down.

Despite these pitfalls, there is a way to profit using the strong US dollar and undervalued non dollar stock markets to pick up good value shares.

During nearly five decades of global investing I have noticed found that good value strategies are the best way to profit long term, through good politics and bad.  The steps to take are simple.

The first tactic is to seek safety before profit.

We can look at Warren Buffett’s investing strategy as an example.  Buffett success is talked about a lot, but rarely does anyone explain how he make so much money.  That was the fact until some researchers really stripped his operation bare.  They looked at everything and learned the deepest of Buffett’s wealth management secrets.  Fortunately they published all in a research paper at Yale University’s website. that reveals important truths about extending wealth.

This research shows that the stocks Buffett chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price – to – book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios).

The second tactic is to maintain staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

A 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of outperformance to 70%.

However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.

Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio the better the odds of outstanding success.

The Buffett strategy integrates time and value for safety and profit.

A third tactic is using limited leveraging, tactic in the strategy boosts profit.  Buffett leverages his portfolio at a ratio of approximately 1.6 to 1.   The Yale published research paper shows the leveraging methods used by Warren Buffett to amass his $50 billion fortune.  The researchers found that the returns from Buffett’s investment company, Berkshire Hathaway, far outweighed those achieved by any rival that has operated for 30 years or more.  The research shows that neither luck nor magic are involved.  Instead, the paper shows that Buffet’s success hinges on using leverage at the rate of 1.6.

To sum up the strategy, Buffet uses limited leverage to invest in large purchases of “cheap, safe, quality stocks”.  He limits leverage so he can hold on for very long periods of time, surviving rough periods where others might have been forced into a fire sale or a career shift.

Stated in another way buffet uses logic (buy good value) to have the conviction, wherewithal, and skill to invest with leverage over many decades.

What do we do when we are not Warren Buffett?

May I introduce the Purposeful Investing Course (Pi) for those who want to invest like Warren Buffet, but know they are not.  This course is based on my 50 plus years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

Enjoy Extending Wealth

Pi’s mission is to make it easy for anyone to create a three point strategy, like Buffett’s even though they do not have a lot of time for or knowledge about investing.

Pi reveals investing secrets and the sciences that make investing easy, safer, less time consuming and increases the chances of profit.

One secret is to invest with a purpose beyond the cash.  One tactic as mentioned is staying power.  This means not being caught short and having to sell during a period of loss.  This also means having enough faith in a strategy that we stick to the plan.  When we invest with purpose, doing what we love, we enjoy the process more and are more likely to hold on during down times, when most poor investors panic and sell.

Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  They create the Behavior Gap, a trait exhibited by most investors, that causes them to underperform any market sector they choose.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.   Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Spanning the Behavior Gap

Behavior gaps are among the biggest reasons why so many investors fail.  Human evolution makes fear the second most powerful motivator.  (Greed is the third.)  Fear creates investment losses due to behavior gaps.  Fear motivates us more strongly than desire.  By nature investors are risk adverse.

Winning investors though embrace risk because they have a plan based on good value.

Purpose is the most powerful motivator,  stronger than fear and greed, so a strategy with purpose is the most powerful of all.

Combine your needs and capabilities with good value secrets and the math to back up your value selections through the Pifolio – The Pi Model Portfolio

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio.  There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based entirely on good math.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my (almost) 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:

#1:  Current book to price

#2: Cash flow to price

#3: Earnings to price

#4: Average dividend yield

#5: Return on equity

#6: Cash flow return.

#7: Market history

We follow this research of a brilliant mathematician and have tracked this analysis for over 20 years.    This is a complete and continual study of international major and emerging stock markets.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.   The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.   This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

A country ETF provides diversification and cost efficiency by spreading one simple, even small investment into a basket of equities in a good value stock market.  The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.

Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi matches this mathematical certainty with my fifty years of experience. This opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

For example in the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.

The two conditions are in place again!  There are currently ten good value (non US) developed markets,  plus 10 good value emerging markets.

Pi shows how to easily create a diversified, worry free portfolio in some of these good value markets using Country Index ETFs.

The current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  There is so much more to write and the trends are so clear that I have created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but you’ll receive the report “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Leverage

Pi also explains when leverage provides extra potential without undo risk.  For example in 1986 I issued a report called “The Silver Dip” that showed how to borrow 12,000 British pounds (at almost 1.6 to 1 dollars per pound the loan created US$18,600) and use the loan to buy 3835 ounces of silver at around US$4.85 an ounce.

Silver had crashed, I mean really crashed from $48 per ounce.  As prices decreased from early 1983 into 1986, total supply had fallen to 449.7 million ounces in 1986.  Mine production was restricted by the low prices at this time, with silver reaching a low for this period of $4.85 in May 1986.  Secondary recovery also was constricted by these low prices.

Then silver’s price skyrocketed to over $11 an ounce within a year.  The $18,600 loan was now worth $42,185.

The loan was in pounds and in May 1986 the dollar pound rate was 1.55 dollars per pound.  So the 12,000 pound loan purchased $18,600 of silver.  The pound then crashed to 1.40 dollars per silver.  The loan could be paid off for $13,285 immediately creating an extra $5,314 profit.  The profit grew to $47,499 in just a year.

Conditions for the silver dip have returned.  The availability of low cost loans and silver are at an all time low.  The price of silver has crashed from nearly $50 an ounce to below $14 as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).

Now the SLV price is taking off!

Imagine investing in a spike like this… with leverage!

At the same time the silver gold ratio has sot well past 80, a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I have updated a special report “Silver Dip 2019” about a leveraged silver speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  While working on the report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80 and the price of silver dropped below $14 an ounce, I knew I needed to share this immediately.

I released a new report “Silver Dip 2015” so readers were able to take advantage of these conditions and leverage 1.6 times as a speculation.  That report generated profits as high as 212% and a revised 2019 issue has been produced.

Getting TractION With Positive IONs


We have learned hundreds of Spanish ION and AR words in the last two lessons of this three lesson series that teaches you to communicate in Spanish.  Now let’s get some traction with this knowledge so it can benefit us.

super thinking teachers

Super Thinking + Spanish teachers, Glenn Sterling and Bob Girga and me.

Teaching the ION and AR Spanish words helps Merri and me fulfill our mission of readers demonstrating just how smart they really are.

This three lesson series proves that you know a lot more than you realize.   Lesson #1 shared 58 Spanish words that you already knew in less than 47 seconds .  Lesson two added hundreds more words to your Spanish vocabulary instantly!   In fact with the 17 lessons in our Super Thinking + Spanish course you know 4005 Spanish words.

If you missed lesson #1 return to it here.

If you missed lesson #2 return to it here.

Now let’s look at how to form sentences so you can get some traction in your communication.   Tracion and Communicacion 

This process requires a bit of memorization.  Super Thinking avoids memorizing  lists  of words as much as possible (this is the least effective ways of absorbing, retaining and recalling information ) but we need a little… in this case we need to memorize two words.

The first memorization is a phrase that we call a “connector phrase” in the Super Spanish course.

The phrase to memorize is “Es posible?”   “Is it posible?”

This is a pretty easy recall because “posible” and “possible” are quite similar.

The next memorization is the “me” which is “me”.  Again this is not too hard to recall.

That’s enough memorization to begin creating our first sentences.  In the Super Spanish courses we use a method we call detouring to find ways to create sentences that “communicate our intent’.

For example if you want to learn Spanish, if you know the Spanish word for Spanish… Español… you can now ask for someone to teach you.

Your intent is to ask “Can you teach me Spanish?”

Yet we do not know the word “you” nor the word “teach” so we simply detour.   We know “to educate” which is “educar” derived from education which becomes “educacion”.  Most ION words in English are the same in Spanish and the infinitive verb is created by changing ION to AR.

We could ask…  “Es posible educarme en español?”  which translates to “Is it possible to educate me in Spanish?”   This is the beginning… the detour.   This is not the way a native Spanish speaker would ask the question but this will be an effective communication. The listener will know that you wish to be taught Spanish.

Lets try one more time.  Let’s assume we are in Quito, Ecuador and want to ask a driver to take us to Cotacachi.  We do not know the word for “drive” or “take” but we can detour because we know the word to transport… transportation becomes “transportacion” which becomes “transportar“.

We can ask…  “Es posible transportarme a Cotacachi?” which translates to “Is it possible to transport me to Cotacachi?”

Again this is not how a local might ask but this very polite question that will communicate your intent beautifully and easily.

You have learned to construct effective Spanish sentences in just a little studying.    It is possible for me to communicate in Spanish.  “Es posible educarme en español?”

We a few more memorizations of words like “in”, “the”, “an”  “tomorrow”, “yesterday”, and a couple more connector phrases you’ll have hundreds of sentences!  Your detouring becomes even more effective.

Detouring is the key to becoming fluent in Spanish because it gets you thinking and speaking in Spanish without fear and without worry about sentence structure….

A Livescience.com article by Jeremy Hsu, entitled “CIA Seeks Anyone, Anyone Who Can Speak 2 Languages” helps explain the importance of this.

The article begins: WASHINGTON, D.C. — Many Americans don’t learn a second or a third language from birth, let alone a language that the CIA or U.S. Foreign Service might want. The situation has forced U.S. government agencies to learn how to cultivate the most talented second-language speakers from among college students with little to no other-language expertise.

The article explained how Doughty and her colleagues used tests to train up cognitive processes related to language learning, such as the ability to hold information in the brain while using it for learning.  The tests sought to predict those who can succeed despite everything stacked against them.

The article said (bolds are mine):  Another surprise came from studies of Spanish-speaking immigrants, because neither age nor language proficiency seemed to predict how quickly the immigrants picked up English. Instead, the fastest learners showed both the greatest motivation to learn and a willingness to use English at every opportunity despite being bad at it (at first).

This is the reason why Super Thinking plus Spanish works. The three day course gets the delegates speaking and thinking Spanish by detouring, aloud and in their thoughts. By using and or thinking Spanish every day the education grows even when Spanish is not being spoken.

The Super Thinking course first integrates the brain.  Students learn better with relaxed concentration. Then the course teaches them 17 simple lessons so they know 4005 words in Spanish and can use them to create sentences. In this way, you can communicate in just three days.

Delegates find what the Spanish they learn in three days is amazing. Yet the Spanish is not the most important part of what they learn.

The Super Thinking course helps you think better… be more energetic and balanced and much more relaxed.

What good is Spanish or any knowledge if you are too sick, unhappy, unable to think clearly or worse dead from stress?  Misery and failure may be different words in English but in any language they inhibit happiness and success.

Merri’s and my mission, along with our Super Spanish teachers is to help readers achieve more of this unlocked potential through Super Thinking.

Super Thinking + Spanish teaches Super Thinking.   You learn to speak Spanish as well but the language is just the by-product that proves how smart and effective you really are.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote about the course he attended taught by Mark Frakes outlined this when he worte (bolds are mine):   Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week and I’m on to a new career. What is my new career? Still formulating, but the eye -opening, mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.  Mark was a very capable leader and teacher, and his choice of Daniella as a pronunciation coach was well received.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be. We all, and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October. Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning. Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off. You did,and I look forward to other courses that you offer,and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially. Thanks to Mark, whom you chose well to represent your program.

Best regards, Denis Molloy.  Actually I now answer to my course acquired name of Antonio. For that I am also grateful. Love, Antonio.

Denis’s note points out one more powerful learning fact.

like minded souls

Like minded souls learning Super Thinking together at a Super Thinking + Spanish course.

People learn better together.  We have had numerous publishers offer to market a Super Thinking + Spanish correspondence course.  We have declined at this time because people learn better together with other people.  There is no more powerful motivational force than like minded souls sharing and growing as they learn.

Save $899 with our Friendship Plan

Because learning is accelerated when friends, families and couples learn together, we started our friendship plan.  This helps people learn together so they can help one another start speaking Spanish and then help each other continue to improve.

Here is the special offer made to you.  The Super Thinking + Spanish course is $699 or $899 for a couple.  Enroll now and you can bring one or two of your friends with you (if you enroll as a couple) free.  You’ll save either $699 or $899.  This is a “two for one” offering.  If you enroll as a single, you can bring one person free.  If you enroll as a double, you can bring two people free.

Now you know hundreds of Spanish words. You can create effective Spanish sentences that communicate a wide range of intent.

We hope you’ll join us at a Super Thinking + Spanish course to continue this learning.

The Huge 2020 Risk

Here is a huge risk that could explode in 2020.

I hope I am wrong… but the numbers are clear.

According to Treasurydirect.com, (1) as of December 26, 2020 the total US public debt was 23 trillion and 845 billion dollars.

This is not a theoretical problem for the future.  This is not something that our children and grandchildren will have to deal with.  This is a problem in the here and now for you and me.

Rising interest rates create a massive problem for every American.

treasury direct

Look at how the interest costs alone have risen to over a half trillion dollars a year.

treasury direct

 

The bad news is that the (US federal debt) is getting bigger….harder to miss.  The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected in 2010 (the debt then was a bit over 14 trillion) that, under law at that time, debt held by the public would exceed $16 trillion by 2020, reaching nearly 70 percent of GDP.

The $7 Trillion Error.

They sure goofed on that.  Here we are… only in 2020 and debt has shot past 23 trillion.

How could the CBO be so wrong? 

The CBO screwed up because they could never imagine that the Fed would push interest rates so low… and keep them there.  The interest rates are so low that the government has been able to borrow more than imagined and still afford the interest.

For example, US Federal government interest last year amounted to around $573 billion.  Yet in 2008 on debt of only $9 trillion +  the interest that year was $451 billion +.

Interest payments in 2017 were 27% higher than they were in 2008.  Yet the debt is over 250% higher.  

Very low interest rates have helped the government borrow.  Low interest has also helped the US stocks reach all time high prices.

The government will resist raising rates because it will ruin their budget, cause a collapse of the stock markets and destroy the US dollar.

Rising interest rates, will create an almost unimaginable debt crisis.  If government interest doubles it is like the $23+ trillion national debt  rising to 46 trillion!  Unless there are some huge tax increase the interest payments are not sustainable.

Learn how to have more freedom and time, less stress, better health care, extra income, greater safety and profit in your savings despite America’s deficits, debt and currency risk.

Fortunately there are secrets that will allow a few to live much better, free of debt and worry despite the decline in the dollar’s purchasing power.   My wife, Merri and I, have traveled, lived, worked and invested around the world for nearly 50 years to gain this information.

Let me share the basics of this data and how we can be of help through 2020.

The first fact behind this secret is that things are really good in the western world.  Despite many problems, we are surrounded by more abundance and greater opportunity than almost anyone has ever enjoyed, anywhere, ever.   To enjoy a fair share of this wealth, all we have to do is understand human nature and learn how to invest in the new economy, as it changes and becomes new, again and again.

Merri and I have made seven huge transitions in the 50 years.  Each has allowed us to always stay ahead of losses that the majority of Americans suffer.  We are in another transition right now and want to share why and what to do so you can stay ahead and live a richer, independent life through 2020 and beyond.

A falling US dollar is one of the greatest risks we have to our independence, safety, health, and wealth, but also brings a window of huge profit as I explain below.   Though the greenback has been strong for a number of years, its strength is in serious jeopardy.  The growing federal deficits increase the national debt and this with rising interest rates propels a growing debt service.

While the Dow Jones Industrial Average passed a record high, the U.S. national debt passed the $20 trillion mark.

The problem is that the Dow will come back down.  National debt will not fall.

The double shock of money fleeing Wall Street and US debt skyrocketing, will destroy the purchasing power of the greenback.

Go to the store even now.  Statistics say inflation is low, but buy some bread or, heaven forbid, some fresh vegetables like peppers or fruit.   Look at the cost of your prescription or hospital bills.  Do something simple like have your car serviced at an auto dealer.  Look at the dollars you spend and you’ll see what I mean.

The loss of the dollar’s purchasing power erodes our independence, our freedom and our savings and wealth as well. 

At the same time, low interest rates by big banks and higher health care costs soak up the ever diminishing income and savings we have left.  According to a Gallup poll, the most unpopular three institutions in America are big corporations & Wall Street banks, HMOs and Congress.

Yet there is little we can do because these institutions are in control.

Over the last 50 years the average income for 90 percent of the American population fell.  Our health system is restricted by a Kafka-esque maze of legislation and insurance regulations that delay, frustrate, and thwart attempts by patients and doctors from proper medical care.  Big banks and corporations restrict our freedom of choice.  The business customer relationships are no longer transactions between free equals.

Banks can trap us in indebtedness at every age from student loans to mortgages to health care costs.  They pay almost nothing on our savings.  They hide unexpected fees and payments in complex and unreadable documents.  Banks and big corporations routinely conceal vital information in small print and then cheat.  Weak regulations and lax enforcement leave consumers with few ways to fight back.  Many of these businesses ranging from cable TV to phone and internet service to health insurance have virtual monopolies that along with deceptive marketing destroys any form of free market.

These same companies control the credit-scoring agencies so if  we don’t pay unfair fees, our credit scores will plunge and we could lose the ability to borrow money, rent an apartment, even to get a job.  Many consumers are forced to accept “arbitration clauses” in lieu of  legal rights.  The alternative is to lose banking, power, and communication services.

Big business has also usurped our privacy.  Internet companies sell our personal data.  Personal information is pulled from WiFi and iPhones track and store our movements.  The government can access this information, sometimes without subpoenas.  There’s a lot that we don’t know, often withheld under the guise of “National Security.”

The glow on Western democratic capitalism has dimmed… or so it seems.  The US, leading the way, is still a superpower with economic, innovation and military might, but the institutions that should serve the people have become flawed or broken.

America’s infrastructure is in shambles.  The nation’s bridges are crumbling, many water systems are filled with toxins, yet instead of spending more to fix this, we build more prisons.  The 2.2 million people currently in  jail is a 500 percent increase over the past thirty years.  60% of the inmates belong to ethnic groups.  Not just non-white ethnic groups are suffering.  Annual death rates are falling for every group except for middle-aged white Americans.  Death rates are rising among this group driven by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse, alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.

America’s middle class is shrinking.  Nearly  half of America’s income goes to upper-income households now.  In 1970 only 29 percent went to this group.  How can we regain our freedom, our happiness and our well being in such a world?

What can we do?

Gain a better, freer life is to combine better health, higher income and greater savings for a happier, more resilient lifestyle. 

Merri and I will celebrate our 50th year of global living, working, investing and researching to find and share ideas on how to have simpler, low stress, healthier, more affluent lifestyles.  Our courses, reports and email messages look at ways to gain:

#1:  Global micro business income.

#2:  Low cost, natural health.

#3:  Safer, more profitable, investments that take little time or cost to buy and hold… so you can focus on earning more instead

Many readers use our services for just one of these three benefits.  They focus only on health or on earning more or on better, easier investing.

28 years ago Merri and I created the International Club as a way for readers to join us and be immersed in all three of these benefits.   The International Club is a year long learning program aimed at helping members earn worry free income, have better affordable good health and gain extra safety and profits with value investments.

Join us for all of 2020 NOW.

The three disciplines, earning, health and investing, work best when coordinated together.  Regretfully the attacks on our freedom are realities of life.  There is little we can do to change this big picture.  However we can change how we care for our health, how we earn and how we save so that we are among the few who live better despite the dollar’s fall.

We start with better lower cost health care.

Club membership begins by sharing ways to be free of the “Secret Hospital Charge Master”.   Just as governments hide truth behind “National Security”, big health care businesses hide medical truths behind “Charge masters”.  Most hospital charge masters are secret because big business does not want us to know how much hospital costs have risen.  Motivations beyond our good health, like corporate greed, want to keep us in the dark about health care cost.

Despite rising health care costs, a report from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention shows that hospitals are the last place we want to be for good health.  One report shows that hospital-acquired infections alone kills 57% more Americans every year than all car accidents and falls put together.

Often, what patients catch in the hospital can be worse than what sent them there.  Governments and health care agencies agree  – antibiotic resistance is a “nightmare.”  An antibiotic-resistant bacteria may be spreading in more hospitals than patients know.  About one in every 25 hospitalized patients gets an infection and a report from the Journal of Patient Safety showed that medical errors are the third-leading cause of death in the country.

Along with the risk of hospital acquired illness and medical errors, the second huge threat to our well being… is health care costs, especially at hospitals.  This is why charge masters are so often secret.  There are few risks to our wealth that are greater than a hospital stay.

I have created three natural health reports are about:

#1: Nutrition

#2: Purification

#3: Exercise

Each report is available for $19.95.  However you’ll receive this free as club member and save $59.85.

Club members also receive seven workshops and courses on how earn everywhere with at home micro businesses.  We call this our “Live Well and Free Anywhere Program”.   The program contains a series of courses and reports that show ways to earn and be free. These courses and reports are:

  • “International Business Made EZ”
  • “Self Fulfilled – How to Write to Sell”
  • Video Workshop by our webmaster David Cross,
  • The entire weekend “Writer’s Camp” in MP3
  • The report “How to Raise Money Abroad”
  • Report and MP3 Workshop “How to Gain Added Success With Relaxed Concentration”
  • The course “Event-Full – How to Earn Conducting Seminars and Tours”

This program is offered at $299, but is available to you as a club member free.  You save $299 more.

Next, club members participate in an intensive program called the Purposeful investing Course (Pi).  The purpose of Pi is finding value investments that increase safety and profit.  Learn Slow, Worry Free, Good Value Investing.

Stress, worry and fear are three of an investor’s worst enemies.  These destroyers of wealth can create a Behavior Gap, that causes investors to underperform in any market good or bad.  The behavior gap is created by natural human responses to fear.  Pi helps create profitable strategies that avoid losses from this gap.

Lessons from Pi are based on the creation and management of a Primary Pi Model Portfolio, called the Pifolio.  There are no secrets about this portfolio except that it ignores the stories from economic news (often created by someone with vested interests) and is based mainly on good math that reveals the truth through financial news.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets using my 50 years of global experience and my study of the analysis of four mathematical investing geniuses (and friends).

There are seven layers of tactics in the Pi strategy.

Pi Tactic #1: Determine purpose and good value.

Pi Tactic #2: Diversify 70% to 80% of portfolio equally in good value developed markets.

Pi Tactic #3: Invest 20% to 30% equally in good value emerging markets.

Pi Tactic  #4:  Use trending algorithms to buy sell or hold these markets.

Pi Tactic  #5:  Add spice speculating with ideal conditions.

Pi Tactic  #6: Add spice speculating with leverage.

Pi Tactic  #7:  Add spice speculating with forex potential.

The Pifolio analysis begins with a continual research of international major stock markets that compares their value based on:

#1:  Current book to price

#2:  Cash flow to price

#3:  Earnings to price

#4:  Average dividend yield

#5:  Return on equity

#6:  Cash flow return

#7:  Market history

We combine the research of several brilliant mathematicians and money managers with my years of investing experience.

This is a complete and continual study of what to do about the movement of international major and emerging stock markets.  I want to share this study throughout the next year with you.

This analysis forms the basis of a Good Value Stock Market Strategy.  The analysis is rational, mathematical and does not worry about short term ups and downs.  This strategy is easy for anyone to follow and use.  Pi reveals the best value markets and provides contacts to managers and analysts and Country Index ETFs so almost anyone can create and follow their own strategy.

The costs are low and this type of ETF is one of the hardest for institutions to cheat.  Expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund.  Little knowledge, time, management or guesswork are required.  The investment is simply a diversified portfolio of good value indices.  Investments in an index are like investments in all the shares of a good value market.

Pi opens insights to numerous long term cycles that most investors miss because they have not been investing long enough to see them.

The Pi subscription is normally $299 per annum but as a club member you receive Pi at no charge and save an additional $2299.

Profit from the US dollar’s fall.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

Club members receive a report about opportunity in the  current strength of the US dollar is a second remarkable similarity to 30 years ago.   The dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but when you become a club member you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns For 50% Profits or More” FREE.

Plus get the $39.99 report, “The Platinum Dip 2019” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80 and has remained near this level, compared to a range of the 230s only two years ago.

Now there is a new distortion ready to ripen in the year ahead.

These two events are a strong sign to invest in precious metals.

I prepared a special report “Platinum Dip 2019”.   The report explains the exact conditions you need to make leveraged precious metal speculations that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The purpose of the report is to share long term lessons about speculating in precious metals gained through 30 years of speculating and investing in gold and silver.

The low price of silver offers special value now so I want to send you this report because the “Platinum Dip 2018” offers enormous profit potential in 2018.

The report “Platinum Dip 2019” sells for $39.95 but club members receive it free as well.

The $39.95 new “Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere Report” is also free.

There is an incredible new economy that’s opening for those who know what to do.  There are great new opportunities and many of them offer enormous income potential but also work well in disaster scenarios.

There are are specific places where you can reduce your living expenses and easily increase your income.  Scientific research has shown that being in such places actually make you smarter and healthier.  Top this off with the fact that they provide tax benefits as well and you have to ask, “Where are these places?”.

Learn about these specific places.  More important learn what makes them special.  Discover seven freedom producing steps that you can use to find other similar places of opportunity.

The report includes a tax and career plan broken into four age groups, before you finish school, from age 25 to 50 – age 50-to 65 and what to do when you reach the age where tradition wants you to re-tire.  (Another clue-you do not need to retire and probably should not!)

The report is very specific because it describes what Merri and I, our children and even my sister and thousands of our readers have done and are doing, right now.

Live Anywhere – Earn Everywhere focuses on a system that takes advantage of living in Smalltown USA, but earning locally and globally.

This report is available online for $39.99 but International Club members receive it free.

Adding ActION to Your Life’s MissION


Teaching the ION words helps Merri and me fulfill our mission of showing readers how smart they really are.

This three lesson series proves that you know a lot more than you realized.   Lesson #1 in quickly shared 58 Spanish words that you already knew.  That lesson gave you a way to instantly know hundreds of Spanish words.  In fact with the 17 lessons in our Super Thinking + Spanish course you know 4005 Spanish words.

If you missed lesson #1 return to it here.

Now let’s double your awareness of the Spanish you already know.  This lesson shows you how to express action by teaching you hundreds of verbs.

Gary-scott-spanish

Gary & Merri Scott working with Super Spanish teachers Mark Frakes and Shawn and Suzanne Bandick

Lesson #2: To have the infinitive verb of most ion words simply change ion to ar.    “Action is actar”  Actar mean “to act”.

Education is educar.  “To educate”.

Manipulation is  manipular.  “To manipulate”.

Simply think of words that end with “ION”… change the ending to “AR” and you have the infinitive verb.

Now you have 58 Spanish words that you already knew but perhaps did not know you knew.  Now you know hundreds more.  In fact with the 17 lessons you’ll have 4005 Spanish words in your Spanish vocabulary.

The amazing thing is that Spanish is the least important part of our Super Thinking + Spanish courses.

What good is Spanish if you are sick, unhappy, thinking unclearly or worse dead from stress.  Misery and failure may be different words in English.

A good example of how powerful Super Spanish can be, after a Vancouver course taught by Ernest Neumann we received an amazing email.  One of the registrants had a medical matter that posed difficulty with concentration, attention and focus.  He had a doctor’s prescription (legal in Canada) for medicinal marijuana.  Following the course he emailed us and said that upon taking the first joint of the medicinal marijuana he realized it was no longer necessary and made the decision that he no longer needed this and due to the complete life changing alteration he had experienced from the Super Thinking class!

Merri’s and my mission, along with our Super Spanish teachers is to help readers achieve more of this unlocked potential through Super Thinking.

Super Thinking + Spanish teaches Super Thinking.   You learn to speak Spanish as well but the language is just the by-product that proves how smart and effective you really are.

We hope you’ll join us at a Super Thinking course and hope you’ll join us for our message tomorrow… lesson three of this series tomorrow which will double & allow you to construct effective Spanish sentences.

Use Positive IONS to Accomplish Your Life’s MissION


Each of us has a purpose.    Something (even if we are not aware of it) is our mission and we can describe this life journey in Spanish through IONs.

Gary-scott-spanish

Gary Scott teaching Super Thinking.

Merri’s and my mission is to help our readers understand how much more they know and are  through Super Thinking.

To prove this here is a three part series based on just a portion of one of 17 lessons we teach in our Super Thinking  + Spanish course.  This small portion will teach you hundreds of Spanish words in just 47 seconds if you read at my normal speed.  By the end of the three part series you’ll be able to form effective sentences in Spanish.

Lesson #1:  Almost every single word that ends in ion is equal in English and Spanish.   A walk through life below shows the English word in bold and Spanish word after the sentence in Italics.

Life begins at conception.   Concepcion

After gestation our creation comes at birth… our  first respiration is the introduction to the material world    Gestación – RespiracionCreacion  –  Introduccion

We begin to gain control of our body so we can have manipulation over our environment. Manipulacion

Our spiritual growth may begin with our confirmation. Confirmacion

We begin to walk… our first transportationTransportacion

We learn to talk.. our form of social communicationComunicacion

Education becomes formal at school.  Educacion

Often before we can merge with the school population we must have vaccinationsPopulacion – Vacunacion

We have many examinations at school for verification of our learning.  Examinacion  – Verificacion

If our exam results are good we feel elation. If grades are bad there could be some recrimination of our reputation Elation – Recriminacion – Reputacion

Our parents and school may even start an investigation. Investigacion

We may be assigned a tutor for extra preparation. Preparacion

At graduation we have a great celebrationGraduacion – Celebracion

To get into the work place we start making job applicationsAplicacion

Passion attracts us to a potential spouse after a presentationPasion – Presentacion

There is flirtation perhaps a proposition and excitationFlirtacion – Proposicion – Excitacion 

Cohabitation often comes next.  Cohabitacion

Then perhaps there is marriage with a reception and a new habitation Recepcion – Habitacion

Procreation is the natural consequence.  Procreacion

Obligation to family is a result.  Obigacion

Dedication to work helps us fulfill this familial duty.  Dedicacion

Fabrication of products or services is the way we earn.  Fabricacion

Many have trepidation of job termination and overcome it with aggression. Trepidacion – terminacion – agresion

If we work too hard our family suffers and married couples often have a separation.  Separacion

Vacations help avoid this and keep us balanced with work. Vacacion

Recreation is essential to well being.   Recreacion

Otherwise stress can hurt digestion and lead to inflamation.   Digestion – Inflamacion

If we get too far out of balance we can have problems with friends, family and business which can lead to litigation,
ruination and even the police stationLitigacion – Ruinacion – Estacion

Medication is the result of not being balanced.  Medicacion

We can regain our balance with meditation that helps us stay in touch with our larger life’s mission. Meditacion – Mision

We can dramatically increase the effectiveness of our work and reduce stress with with relaxed concentration which brings clear thinking… wisdom and relaxation in actionConcentracion – Relaxacion – Accion

Tradition tries to get is to retire from service in the process of maturation. Tradicion Maturacion

Our lifetime of experience brings us wisdom and veneration from those with less life experience.  Veneracion

Then we make the great transformation and pass to a broader universe.  Transformacion

Not all of these Spanish words are exactly correct… but this is okay. A study for the CIA showed that the key to speaking a second language well is to start even though you are not perfect so we keep the Spanish words similar to English because we want you to  know a word that works first so you’ll have a sufficient command to start the trial and error process that leads to perfection.

Now you have 58 Spanish words in your vocabulary that you already knew but perhaps did not know you knew.  This took less than 47 seconds and you know hundreds more.  In fact with the 17 lessons you know 4005 Spanish words.

The amazing thing is that Spanish is the least important part of our Super Thinking + Spanish courses.

One delegate Rob Christi who took the Super Thinking + Spanish course in Cotacachi Ecuador explained this perfectly and put it this way (bolds and underscores are mine):  After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!  Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Thinking Super Spanish. And learning Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.  In recent years, I’ve rarely relaxed (No wonder I have had high blood pressure!).   In class, the past three days, I’ve been introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music.  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make this a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi

What good is Spanish if you are sick, unhappy, thinking unclearly or worse dead from stress?  Misery and failure may be different words in English.

Merri’s and my mission is to help our readers achieve more of this unlocked potential through Super Thinking.

Super Thinking + Spanish teaches Super Thinking.   You learn to speak Spanish as well but the language is just the by-product that proves how smart and effective you really are.

We hope you’ll join us at a Super Thinking course and hope you’ll join us for our message Monday… Lesson Two in this series tomorrow which will double your Spanish vocabulary!

Survive NDD


Here is the dirt on the health system of the Western World… there is not enough dirt in the system.  This is creating NDD…  Nature Deficit Disorder.

See how to be smarter through nature as the world turns faster.

gary-scott-farm-images

My view when writing at dawn.  This is a great start… warmed in a rising sun…  cleansed by mists clinging to fir.   Such natural surroundings  help me work done and keep my health in balance too.

This latest series has been looking at how to survive the system and as far as health is concerned… staying away from hospitals and pharmaceuticals may be a really smart move.  For safe health care… natural defenses rule!

In times that many perceive as tumultuous, inspiration becomes even more valuable and important in health and in wealth.  The news on the internet, in the papers and on TV are so filled with negativity that it can be catching.  In such eras, those who are balanced and in tune with nature gain an extra edge.

Recently we announced two new Super Spanish Camps… programs that combine the power of Super Thinking and deep rain forest experiences in Ecuador and a different but wonderful experience in Smalltown USA .  There is a special reason for these camps.

Nature Teaches

Timothy Egan the New York Pacific Northwest correspondent for 18 years was part of the Pulitzer Prize-winning team that wrote the series “How Race Is Lived in America.” He also wrote “The Worst Hard Time,” which won the National Book Award.  He wrote about the power of nature in a Times  article entitled “Nature Deficit Disorder” which explained a survival problem created by millions of people completely decoupled themselves from nature, in less than a generation’s time.

Here is an excerpt from his article: There’s a term for the consequences of this divorce between human and habitat — nature deficit disorder, coined by the writer Richard Louv in a 2005 book, “Last Child in the Woods.”

This has a big impact on kids as studies have shown that children who play outside are less likely to get sick, to be stressed or become aggressive, and are more adaptable to life’s unpredictable turns.

Studies show exposure to the randomness of nature may actually boost the immune system.

Louv wrote in his book:  “The future will belong to the nature-smart—those individuals, families, businesses, and political leaders who develop a deeper understanding of the transformative power of the natural world and who balance the virtual with the real. The more high-tech we become, the more nature we need.”

Individuals And Businesses Can Become Nature Smart.

Our 252 acre Merrily Farms at Little Horse Creek shows how Super Thinking can be enhanced in all forms… from everywhere… every day.

Our farm is always quiet.   Cell phones do not work.

Here is the creek…

deep in the forest as it flows beneath our seminar hall.

Spending more time outdoors nurtures our “nature neurons” and our natural creativity.  University of Michigan researchers demonstrated that, after just an hour interacting with nature, memory performance and attention spans improved by 20 percent.  In workplaces designed with nature in mind, employees are more productive and take less sick time.

louv book

Richard Louv has written two books about the importance of being in nature. The Nature Principle: Human Restoration and the End of Nature-Deficit Disorder  which shows how nature offers better psychological, physical and spiritual health for people of every age.

Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder has been translated into 10 languages and published in 15 countries.

Louv has been awarded the Audubon Medal, along with Rachel Carson, E. O. Wilson and President Jimmy Carter. Louv and has been bestowed many other honors.

Our farm is isolated and has many waterfalls.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

Instant $110 discount on the course!

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Due to the difficulty of getting groups together to learn this valuable technique, we created an online program for subscribers to use the Super Spanish course at home.  Normally $149, this is available at the highly reduced price of $79. Simply use coupon code SPANISH110 at checkout.

I’ll be in touch personally via email with each person who signs up for this course to see how it works or what is required to make it better.  Once this test is complete, we plan to offer the program on a larger scale and at a much higher price.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

The Power of Our Inner Child


The Power of  our Inner Child is one of our greatest assets.   Innocence. Earnestness. Eagerness. Willingness.  Enthusiam.  Whole brained. Unafraid.

These symbolize seeds of truly great power.

children tags:

Tilly & Leo, Amigos.  They are too young to learn Spanish but you can see below how your high school aged children and grandchildren can learn Spanish free.

Children have fun even at work:

fun-in-work

The children have it figured out. Here’s our grandson Garren “helping us with farm work”.  Work can be play.

There is value in playfulness that makes work… investing and life better.

We begin life being playful.    The rules of society beat this down.  There are seven billion of us living on this planet.  We cannot all do as we please.  Playfulness in swinging our hands has to end before the nose of our neighbor begins.

The teaching and the enforcement of social rules… along with the natural tendency to have a pecking order can stifle play.

In school we cannot talk.  Outside the lines we cannot walk.  In moving lines we cannot balk.  We have to conform… or else.

Bills can be  pressing… debts can grow… the IRS might call… there can be turmoil at work and  food and gas prices may rise.  How can we be playful?

These are typical questions I hear often so just wanted to share a quote from one of the websites we monitor on health.

There are several steps we can take to start making our work… our investing… our efforts… our lives more playful.

Jay Glaser MD gives us some clues in his book “Body Renewal: The Lost Art of Self Repair”.  He writes: Just watch puppies, kittens and kids. Wrestling, horseplay and tussles are their work. They have no clue they are stretching muscles, strengthening bones, sharpening reflexes and developing turbosities, the bony attachments for their muscles.

Jay then explains that children think they are just having fun, but in the bigger scheme of things this is serious work… developing their bodies and sense of self.

He goes on to write: Don’t Exercise, Just Play. A good research study showed that exercise is as effective as the anti-depressant Zoloft in relieving depression especially in the long run. More recently it was shown in a study of adults that being physically active just once a week for 20 minutes including doing housework and gardening is enough to lower the risk of psychological distress and improve mental health.

The Value of Play. Exercise done in this context is the wisest, because it is the most enduring and safest. It is harder to push yourself to the point of injury when you have the attitude, “I’m just playing”.

I’d like to recommend a link to Amazon.com where you can buy the book from our dear friend,  Dr.Jay Glaser, “Body Renewal: The Lost Art of Self Repair”. I recommend this book highly…see link below.

This is why Merri and I make “having fun” one of the main thrusts in our Super Thinking courses.  We promote a lot of laughter.

In our lives we have a routine that takes advantage of  the importance of play.

First, we make sure we walk in the woods or nature… or paddle on the lake and remain active in the garden doing things we love… planting flowers… crops…. harvesting. This for us is not work, it’s fun.

Second, we use techniques to modulate the frequencies of our mind. We experience the power of sound… every day…  listening to 60 cycle baroque music.   The power of music (frequencies in tune with the flow of nature) creates order out of chaotic days.

Yehudi Menuhin expressed this power of music in his book “Theme and Variations” this way: Music creates order out of chaos; for rhythm imposes unanimity upon the divergent, melody imposes continuity of the disjointed, and harmony imposes compatibility upon the incongruous.  Thus a confusion surrenders to order and noise to music, and as we through music attain that greater universal order which rests upon fundamental relationships of geometrical and mathematical proportion, direction is supplied to mere repetitious time, power to the multiplication of elements, and purpose to random association.

We also meditate every day or use use relation techniques like the Tai Chi idea shown below.

We also have a nutritional routine that promotes a “heart and mind balance” including the food supplement theanine… an amino acid.   These steps… the relaxation, the classical music and the nutrition have been shown to integrate and balance brain patterns so one is more relaxed and intelligent at the same time. This helps reduce excess stress… a major enemy of play!

We teach these techniques at all our Super Thinking courses.

Merri & I attribute most of the business success we enjoy to the fact that we simply write about what we love.  This has worked because what we do has always been have interesting, fulfilling and fun… for us and others as well.

Help Your Children Play

Modern life makes it hard for children to play.

Children are bombarded by adult information.   A lot of media for kids has only one goal… to get them to buy something.  Some of these things (probably a LOT) are not good for kids.

Trading down… and economic pressure means that moms and dads have to work more and have less time to spend with children.

Numerous big pharma companies gain from creating disease that must be medicated at great profit for these concerns.

Zero tolerance concepts eliminate common sense and take discipline out of the teacher’s realm.  The web site endoftheamericandream.com  linked below shows 10 examples of very young children being arrested like a five year old who assaulted a police officer.

Examples include three nine-year-old girls and an eight-year-old boy arrested for fighting and marched out of their Baltimore elementary school in handcuffs.  The police department defended handcuffing these kids with “It’s our policy, regardless of the age, when a suspect is arrested by police, they’re handcuffed. And the reason is just not for the suspect’s safety but also for officers’ safety.”

In New Haven, Connecticut a 10-year-old boy was actually arrested by police for giving another student “a wedgie” on a school bus.

A 5-year-old boy at a public school in Stockton, California was arrested by police and handcuffed with zip ties because he was committing “battery on a police officer”.

I had some bad teachers growing up. Many children my age who attended Rockwood Grade School outside Portland, Oregon remember the steely eyed Ms. Arpin who wielded an arrow. We were either whacked or stuck depending on the seriousness of the offense.

This is a really complicated issue. I do not know the solution…. how to unwind this stress.   The point here though is that these conditions are not conducive to childlike activity.  They force children to become adults early on.

ecuador-child

Merri’s and my Godson, Kinti Anaki, (the King of the Hummingbirds)  at his Christening.  Children are naturally happy but…  Western lifestyles often stop them from being this way… turning them too quickly into adults.

Ecuador children in the countryside are happy and I learned a lot from this fact.   The yatchak that Merri and I lived and worked with for years specialized in bringing children who had lived in cities (or North America) back to good health and happiness.  He explained that it required only three things… good nutrition… good work which brought the third…. good sleep.

We watched him bring numerous sullen… behavior challenged children, back to innocent, earnest joy.

This let me share one way to help children release the stresses of growing up in a distorted world and to learn more effectively.

This is a T’ai Chi Game for Learning called “Be the Chair”.

concentration

Be the Chair:  Be the Chair is a (guided) seated, Chinese meditation, and like all meditation, clears the mind, but with the added benefit of improving posture and energy. Students will have better focus after processing their mental chatter in stillness. A straight back while poised on the edge of the chair, as if sitz (sitting) bones are the feet during standing meditation, is essential. The crown point must be lifted and the shoulders relaxed. Concentration and focus on all subsequent exercises are improved from starting with “Be the Chair.”

There is a link below to numerous easy Tai Chi exercises for children like the Turtle Races -Follow the Leader, Lead the Follower  – Sword Fingers – Glider –  Full Moon/Empty Moon – Push the Turtle or Don’t Break the Chain and Dog Chases its Tail.

Another way to help children remain playful is to teach them Super Thinking.  In fact it is the kids helping s adults when it comes to these techniques because the master Merri learned from Dr. Greorgi Lozanov, was an  reknown educator.   He developed these intelligence enhancing routines for kids and had stunning results.

That is why we are making a special effort to help children learn Super Thinking + Spanish and why  want to let your children learn Spanish FREE.

Super Thinking + Spanish teacher Mark Frakes was formerly a teacher of Spanish in high school. He switched to Super Thinking because he saw fallacies in the old ways and understand how effective Super Thinking can be.   He has offered to let any of your children high school student and older attend the St. Louis Super thinking course free.

Here is the special offer.  See details of the course below… and the seven Tai Chi Exercises for Kids link below.   Enroll… one person or a couple (parents or grandparents) for the St. Louis course and up to four of your children high school age or older can join you at no added cost.

Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

The Power of Communication – Government Intrusion VIII


There is incredible power in communication.  Government Intrusion VIII.

This series on government intrusion began from the process of taking a photograph.   I realized my camera was tracking me and communicating with others where I was!

Never mind the tracking.  Photography in itself is a pretty amazing form of communication… that we take for granted… like electricity. We push a button or flip a switch.  It works. The lights come on… or we have a picture.

Wow!

gary-scott-moon tags:

I captured the super moon last night with the push of a button and can communicate this information with you with just one more click.   We have these incredible abilities today. We can put a man on the moon.  We can do the near impossible. Yet we  cannot overcome inconvenience.

How does it work?  Most of us can’t really explain it.  I cannot tear my camera apart and change it.  You certainly will not find me sticking any screwdrivers in electrical sockets either.

We just depend on these technologies… caught in their alluring web.

We are pretty much forced to adapt and accept new technologies if we want to keep up. This is what makes us vulnerable to government intrusion and as you’ll see in this article, we AIN’T  SEEN NOTHING YET.

We as social animals are stuck with the human network. Our increasing efficiency in communication is both good and bad news.

The efficiency of human communication has expanded enormously in the last two decades and yet the big quantum expansion via the quantum computer is only in its infancy.

The potential of this scientific advance caught my attention clear back in the 1990s.   One of the first articles at this site over a decade ago told about the quantum computer and the communicating power of the qubit.    You can see articles at our site about quantum computers posted in the 1990s.

Two keys that will alter the way we communicate forever are pointed out in these articles.

The first key is superposition.

Computers, no matter how sophisticated, work on a simple zero or one concept, created by the presence or absence of an electric current.   The simple on or off binary formula builds all calculations.

Quantum computers work on thee same principle because atoms have a spin either up or down and create the  binary potential.  Up is on, down is off.

There is a weird aspect however.  Until an atom is observed… it is in a state where it is both up and down at the same time.  That’s impossible in our Newtonian workload… but possible in our expanded quantum reality. This is called a  superposition.

Scientists call this ability of an atom to be in two separate states simultaneously scalar energy.   Another way of describing this is as potential.  The atom is waiting for a consciousness to observe it and cause it to convert from potential to physical.

Then it chooses either to be up or down.  This reality that our senses can identify is called vector energy.

In a way this means that we really do create our own reality. This expands upon the age old question “If a trees falls in a forest where there is no one to hear it, is there a sound?”  The question now is “If there is no one to observe the forest… is there a forest?”

The second key is entanglement.

When two atoms are observed together they become entangled.   Once entangled, if one entangled atom changes from scalar to vector energy  so does the other simultaneously. There is no gap in time for this reaction even though there may be huge distances between these two atoms.  The concepts of time and space… of E = MC2 fall apart.  The atoms communicate in a way we do not yet understand… but show that there is something beyond the speed of light.

Entanglement is the ultimate form of communication and since we are composed of atoms we can put this power to work if we understand it. 

Let’s hold this thought.

First, let me add that since we began writing these articles about quantum computing almost a decade and a half ago… there have been many advanced in quantum computing.

For example, the Ames Laboratory, has developed a new technique for solid-state quantum information processing using diamonds.   Ames is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science national laboratory operated by Iowa State University. The Ames Laboratory creates innovative materials, technologies and energy solutions. This lab is  run by the DOE’s Office of Science, the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States.

NASA is in this act as well.  Understanding the science is way beyond my pay grade.

Take for example “NASA’s article Quantum Adiabatic Evolution Algorithms for NP-Hard Problems and Quantum Spin Glasses” Here is a short excerpt:  Phase transitions and Computational Complexity.

One of the central open questions in the field of quantum computing is that of an existence of an efficient quantum algorithms for solving classically intractable instances of an optimization problem. Our project is devoted to the theoretical analysis of performance of quantum adiabatic evolution algorithm (QAA) proposed by Farhi and coworkers for NP-hard optimization problems. The algorithm is similar to simulated annealing but instead of thermal cooling the system at zero temperature is subjected to external magnetic field of slowly decreasing magnitude. Adiabatic theorem predicts that the system will remain in its ground state as the magnetic field is changed provided that the rate of change is sufficiently smallI do not have a clue what this means… but logic can show us how to use entanglement now.

Entanglement is the ultimate form of communication. Since we are composed of atoms, we can put this power to work if we understand it.   We are composed of atoms and these atoms are entangled so the atoms that compose us are communicating with trillions of other atoms.

At some level we can tap into this information. We just need to know how to get traction.  Quantum information cannot be converted into linguistics.  Our logic is not powerful enough to figure it out.  We can however let all this data stack up and send us pictures… or feelings or knowledge that we call “intuition”.    This is what the Super Thinking portion of our courses are all about… getting into a state where we allow this quantum communication to transmit information and how to interpret this data.  Super Thinking takes place where scalar energy (potential) and vector energy (manifestation) merge… often called THE ZONE.

Quantum computing will change government intervention forever in ways we cannot yet begin to imagine.   These changes will come in ways we can do nothing about.  Since this series is about what we can do…let’s look at Super Thinking because  we can use the quantum reality  to embrace and benefit from change.  We can turn our quantum reality to our favor… even now… decades ahead of the machine.

An article at Superhuman feats Howstuffworks.com entitled “How can adrenaline help you lift a 3,500-pound car?” by Josh Clark touches on this:   In 2006 in Tucson, Ariz., Tim Boyle watched as a Chevrolet Camaro hit 18-year-old Kyle Holtrust. The car pinned Holtrust, still alive, underneath. Boyle ran to the scene of the accident and lifted the Camaro off the teenager, while the driver of the car pulled him to safety.

In 1982, in Lawrenceville, Ga., Angela Cavallo lifted a 1964 Chevrolet Impala from her son, Tony, after it fell off the jacks that had held it up while he worked underneath the car. Mrs. Cavallo lifted the car high enough and long enough for two neighbors to replace the jacks and pull Tony from beneath the car.

Marie “Bootsy” Payton was cutting her lawn in High Island, Texas, when her riding mower got away from her. Payton’s young granddaughter, Evie, tried to stop the mower, but was knocked underneath the still-running machine. Payton reached the mower and easily tossed it off her granddaughter, limiting Evie’s injuries to four severed toes. Curious, Payton later tried to lift the mower again and found she couldn’t move it.

What accounts for feats of superhuman strength like these?

­­Although well-documented when they do occur,  feats of hysterical strength — unnatural and amazing strength tapped during high-stress situations — are not recognized by medical science.

The establishment cannot act beyond the bounds of vector energy… the stuff our day to day senses work with.  As soon as miracles and/or unrepeatable events take place, science as we describe it has to shut down until we move below vector to scalar energy.

Statistical Laws

This interface between the scalar and vector aspects of our reality were explained to me once by Dr. John Hagelin.

John was running for the US Presidency for the Natural Law Party and stayed in our guest host during his stay in our community so we had a chance to sit round the dining room table and listen to his theories.

John received his PhD  from Harvard University, and worked at the European Centre for Particle Research (CERN) in Geneva, as well as the Stanford Linear Accelerator in California. He worked closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for many years, examining the relationship between the most fundamental aspect of human consciousness… this place where quantum science and mysticism meet.

He explained how Yogic Flying works.  I have practiced this form of meditation for many decades so from experience know there is something there.  Simply thinking the correct words in the correct way can affect the physical nature of the body.

Of that there is no doubt but can it violate the laws of gravity?

Hagelin pointed out first of all that gravity is very 17th century thinking!

Like the speed of light, quantum science shows that time and space and gravity are not basic laws of nature.

The concepts of gravity, like so many classical laws we absolutely believe are not absolute laws. They are statistical laws. They are the result of the likely happenings of many microscopic events.

He used flipping a coin a hundred times as an example. Chances are the coin will land fifty times heads and fifty tails plus or minus 10%.  But there is no actual law.

Every flip the odds are equal that the coin will land heads or tails.  Innumerable microscopic factors  – air currents, the surface the coin lands on, force of the flip and such all affect each flip.

Gravity as a statistical event means that an impulse, a thought… or emotion can alter the outcome and shift the statistical laws of averaging enough to change the outcome.

Instead of falling down, which is the normal outcome, an item can fall up, or to the left or to the right.

This would explain the examples above of Superhuman strength.  The body may not have become stronger physically as we would expect but rather the emotional impulse weakened or altered the specifics of gravity.  The miracle is not a miracle at all if we leave Newtonian physics and become a quantum thinker.

Shape Shifters – Sub Atomic

These same concepts are used in the Andes where many shamans and yatchaks practice these concepts to shape shift… cure… bring on rain, etc.

Our Super Thinking courses rely on these principles as well… to get into a relaxed state where brain wave integration allows us to interface with our deepest levels of existence which  must be at the quantum level.  Then we use a number of techniques to help our linear logic interface with the non linear knowing so we can take correct action in this physical world.

This may at least in part how Steve Kelly was able to report after attending our Super Thinking Plus Spanish Course:  Almost Miraculous results??! Well…you be the judge?!

Look at the 2 blood tests (lipids,sugars etc etc) i had done recently, just 2 months apart!

My Cholesterol was 330 then, 169 now!
My triglycerides were 1350 then, 199 now!

Both incredibly, dangerously high, if fact doctor said he never saw or even heard of Tri’s so high. (I checked on the internet, others do have them that high).

My (FBS) Blood sugar was 150,  now 129 !

Hemaglobin count up appreciably (red blood cells), which is real good too!

And Blood Pressure at the time was 130/80, a bit high, now 107/70= Perfect said the doc!

Man I feel a whole lot better too!

How did I do it?

Perhaps in part because the relaxation techniques helped him alter the amount of intelligence his body could muster and use.

Expect More Government Intrusion

Quantum computers will change everything and leaders in this science like like Ames Labs are government led.  Their advances are likely to increase government intrusion.   Man’s change has always come in thrust and counter thrust so just like radar has been used to catch speeding cars… quantum knowledge will offer benefits and protection from intrusion as well.  Count on it.

In the meantime we can apply what we already know about quantum reality to turn change to our favor with Super Thinking tactics for learning that wise men for millennia have known.

Our Super thinking + Spanish courses are working really well!

One delegate who completed the course in Cotacachi last week wrote:

Buenos Dias, Gary y Glenn,

Below is a testimonial for Super Thinking Super Spanish. Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course. In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.

Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish Super Learning.

I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

The course was taught in English by Glenn Sterling, a witty, engaging, retiree and Alberto, his Ecuadorian side kick, who made sure we learned to pronounce everything correctly.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.

The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Thinking Super Spanish. And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.

One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Learning is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.

During the course of the day and night, humans experience four types of brain waves: alpha, beta, delta, and theta. It turns out we learn best in alpha state. Research has shown that alpha state can be induced by meditation, listening to Baroque music (or any music that has about 60 beats per minute) and by taking a theanine (the active ingredient in green tea) supplement.

Getting into alpha involves slowing down and relaxing. So, class includes baroque music and guided journeys to support relaxation. Imagine learning while relaxing and having fun. That’s not how I remember school!

I practiced yoga from 1980–1988 and was taught to meditate. Unfortunately, I let go of the practice and have not meditated consistently for years. When I was meditating, I was spending some time relaxing every day.

The brutal truth: In recent years, I’ve rarely relaxed (No wonder I have high blood pressure!) and, suddenly, I’m aware of it. Why?

1. Since early April, I’ve been living in a small town in a country with a slower pace of life and I’ve been affected by it. Positively, I’d say.

2. In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org). What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.

Meditation is not part of the class. I mention it here as I have prior experience with it, and its relaxing effects.

Learn Spanish in Three Days ONLINE

Instant $110 discount on the course!

The “Learn Spanish in Three Day Course” is now available online.

Read below to see why we are offering our Super Spanish course online for the first time.

Speaking Spanish is a huge benefit on its own.  You can become one of the rare North Americans who can get along in Spanish speaking countries.  You can be one of the special people who can communicate with 10 million non-English speakers in the USA.  Spanish is the second most used language in the USA.  There are more Spanish speakers than speakers of Chinese, French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and the Native American languages combined.  According to the Census Bureau, Spanish is the primary language of nearly 50 million people in the US.  This is the largest Spanish-speaking community outside of Mexico. Only half of these speakers also speak English “very well,” and 19% do not speak Spanish at all.

You can tap into all this potential when you speak Spanish.  Yet there are more benefits.

An article in England’s leading newspaper, the Telegraph, entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism” (1) sum up the biggest benefit of learning a second language and increased intelligence.  The article says: “Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for traveling.  It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English.  Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process.  The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.”

The article then explains studies that show seven cognitive advantages gained from learning a foreign language.

#1:  You become smarter
#2:  You build multitasking skills
#3:  You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia
#4:  Your memory improves
#5:  You become more perceptive
#6:  Your decision-making skills improve
#7:  You improve your English

Does it sound impossible to learn Spanish in three days?  Yes, it is impossible when you try to learn Spanish in the old, traditional way.

Though you may choose to take more time using this course to learn Spanish, thousands of our readers have learned at our Spanish courses.

There is a scientific method of learning… proven and described in numerous best selling books that create educational jumps by making education natural, easy and fun.   This course works because it is education without stress!

This method was created and refined by the Bulgarian educational master, Georgi Lozanov, who transformed the entire Soviet educational system to such a degree that this third world country beat the USA into space.

Merri was lucky to be one of a handful of students outside of Bulgaria who were allowed to be taught this system in the early 70s.  She practiced this unique and remarkable form of education for  four decades. It was a delight!

Merri and I began integrating these techniques with other shamanic and educational tactics we had gained in our global travels and then applied them to teach Spanish in three days.

The course has been proven again and again by the thousands who have used this system.  You can read a few of the many raves we have received from delegates who have learned from the Super Thinking Spanish course we created.

Here are a few quotes from delegates of the course.

One delegate from St. Louis wrote:  Hi Gary,  Just ended forty-five years in dentistry last week, and I’m on to a new career.  What is my new career?  Still formulating, but the eye -opening,mind expanding Super-Spanish course last weekend in St. Louis surely shows me the opportunity exists to expand my horizons.

Besides having a lot of nice people to learn our new language; the methods Merri and you developed proved to be just what you said they would be.  We all and I in particular relaxed our way to new learning.  I feel so very comfortable with the basis of my new language skills that I know I will be spitting out great Spanish sentences by the time I reach Ecuador in October.  Last year I spent six weeks in Ecuador and now I plan on conversing with the people.

Today’s excerpt of your newsletter really hit home. You do what you say you will. There are no surprises or hidden sales tricks. The only tricks are beneficial to our learning.  Thank you for a wonderful experience that I was quite unable to grasp how you would pull it off.  You did, however, and I look forward to other courses that you offer, and I have absolutely no doubt they also will work beneficially.  Best regards, Denis Molloy.

Another wrote about the Super Spanish course:   Buenos Dias, here is a testimonial for Super Thinking-Super Spanish.  Please feel free to use all or part in promotions for the course.  In addition, you may give my email address to any prospect “on the fence” about enrolling.  Yesterday, in Cotacachi, Ecuador, I finished Super Spanish.  I had high expectations for the course and they were exceeded.

After three days, I can speak Spanish in complete sentences. In simple conversations, such as buying groceries or ordering a meal, I can make myself understood. I think that’s incredible!

Although I am far from the competence level of a native speaker, I feel I’ve taken a giant step forward in learning Spanish so that I can experience the people and culture of Ecuador.  The foregoing benefits would have more than justified the time and money I invested in Super Spanish.  And learning some Spanish was not the most important benefit I got from the course.

Prior to leaving the USA, I had felt for some time that the pace of life there was unhealthy for me (and for most people) and I did nothing about it.

I’ve thought about the pace issue during the course.  One of the key elements Merri Scott designed into Super Spanish is placing the student in the optimal state for learning.  In class, the past three days, I’ve been re-introduced to guided journeys and introduced to the calming effects of Baroque music (www.sundaybaroque.org).  What a blessing! I’m inclined to make one or both a daily part of my life.   Rob Christi.  Cotacachi, Ecuador

Another attendee from a course wrote:   “I took this incredible class a few weeks ago, and I would like to tell anyone that is interested, that it is an amazing three days of learning with lots of laughs included. You leave everyday wanting to learn more and are so excited to do so.

“Other Spanish classes and tutoring made us feel like it would take forever to get to the point where we could put it into practice, but this method gave us a more fluent use for everyday life almost immediately AND the confidence to use it.  It is a fantastic way to show people how much they know and give confidence to learn and use Spanish creating a momentum.

“They made learning Spanish easy and fun in a very relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.  I would definitely recommend this course.  Even if you know some Spanish, this helps make it easier because of the less stress that no verb conjugations gives you.  This gives you more confidence in yourself to try and speak it more.

 “The stress free atmosphere and tons of interaction and participation were very conducive to learning.  The relaxation techniques alone are worth the price.  The fact that I can now feel more comfortable conversing in Spanish with my new friends and neighbors is priceless.  Muchas, muchas gracias.”

“I loved the relaxed environment.  I picked up quite a lot of new vocabulary.  I found this course very informative about how the language works, how I can make sentences and understand others better!  Muchas Gracias!  I had a call from Telcel (the local phone company) after our second class and I was able to speak and understand them for the first time. Despacio (meaning slowly) … a great word!  Everyone should take this course before they pick up bad habits.”

“I liked how simply the course was organized and the positive attitude about learning.  Thank you so much for helping me to learn Spanish!”

“I liked the laid back yet professional approach.  I highly recommend this new, relaxing method of learning Spanish,  I feel a lot more confident in the delivery of my words and sentences. It was taught in an excellent and very professional way.

“It was a very enjoyable class.”

How The Course Works

The first tactic is to use Baroque music in the learning process.  At least three best selling books, “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000” have revealed insights about how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri Scott was among just a few who learned directly from Lozanov.

The second tactic uses 17 unique lessons to provide Spanish fluency in a short time.   Let me prove to you how this tactic works by teaching you hundreds of Spanish words in less than 30 seconds.

Here is the proof.

“Most words in English that end in ION are almost identical, just pronounced differently.  For example action is accion, education-educacion, manipulation- manipulacion, etc.”

There you have it.  How long did it take you to read the sentence?  You now know hundreds of Spanish words that you will never forget.

See examples of the words you already know below.

How long would have taken you to memorize all those words?  How soon would you have forgotten them?

This is just one of seventeen Spanish lessons in the course.

The next lesson teaches how to pronounce each of the nouns.

Then, the third lesson teaches almost as many verbs, almost as quickly.

The fourth lesson shows how to avoid conjugating verbs by sticking with the infinitive (far easier than it sounds).  This simple lesson leaves a person sounding like a Spanish professor without ever conjugating a verb.

Lesson five shows how to sound infinitely polite and yet get almost anything desired in Spanish.

Lesson six gives valuable connectors and the seventh lesson triples the Spanish capacity with three words for “yesterday,” “now” and “tomorrow”.

By the end of three days you feel comfortable speaking Spanish.

Plus the system is Impro-Dynamic.  This means your Spanish keeps getting better even though you do not seem to be studying… practicing… or speaking Spanish.

I was amazed by this as I traveled back and forth from the USA to Ecuador.  The longer I was away from Ecuador… the better my Spanish became.  My second language was automatically improving The self improving feature comes because you learn to create Spanish sentences rather than remember them.  The portion of the brain that creates is more powerful than the portion that recalls.  When your mind creates something… it owns it!  You do not have to remember .

During the course you learn 4005 Spanish words that you already know .  

You then learn how to create Spanish sentences from these words.

Throughout the course you learn how to pronounce the sentences you create.

When the course ends… the mind keeps working… and creating… so next time you begin to speak Spanish you’ll be surprised .  You improve even though you have not actively worked on your lingual skill.

Here are more testimonials from previous Super Spanish Courses.

Maggie wrote: It didn’t really seem possible that we would be speaking and understanding Spanish in only 3 days but the course made it happen in a very supportive learning environment.  I would highly recommend this course for anyone wishing to learn “practical Spanish”.  The teaching methods, use of relaxation, the use of native Spanish speakers for pronunciation and the teachers themselves who were approachable and helpful and always positive made this a very valuable class.

This course improved my self confidence in my ability to learn and retain a language.  It was presented with genuine enthusiasm, great energy and the style of learning is very effective. Gracias!  It was a great experience.

Nadine wrote: “Just spent the last 3 days in the most wonderful learning environment learning Spanish.  What an amazing learning experience!!  First day out of class and I could not stop thinking in Spanish WOW!!  I am amazed by how much I learned, retained and how much more is showing up now that I am out of class.  And the best part is THERE WAS NO STUDYING!! Indeed this is Super Thinking!!!  I would highly recommend this to anyone that has ever had a desire to learn another language or learn anything in record time.

And a few days after that ….  As I went through my day, just hanging out with my son, I could see myself starting to think in Spanish.  At first I thought it was amusing but as it continued and increased I thought “My goodness this is really remarkable amazing” It was really an effortless unfolding.  I wasn’t at any point “trying” to think in Spanish, just words I knew would fly across the screen in my mind.  And then this afternoon, my son cuddled up on the couch to watch some cartoons on his ipad and was watching Peppa Pig in Spanish…hmm coincidence?  I think not, I’m radiating Spanish so much that my son is being influenced!  Thanks a million again.  This weekend the best learning experience of my life!!

If you have ever had a desire to learn Spanish this is the way to do it!  By the end of the first day I had more confidence and more practical ability than I had from any previous courses I had taken.  It was fun and relaxed and full of laughter.  You will leave this class excited to use what you have learned.  Rather than leaving overwhelmed with how much you have yet to learn and master, you are equipped with the knowledge and know how to go out and communicate as well as the excitement to do it!”

Gary noted:  “The whole approach is positive and conducive to learning at a level that benefits ALL participants.  It is not intimidating and does not set up a pass/fail atmosphere.  The presenters are terrific and the results unbelievable.  It was relaxed, informal, friendly and effective.”

Twila said:  “This class provided a very refreshing and relaxed way of learning.  The atmosphere felt very safe to say the words you were practicing.  I learned a lot in a way that will make it easy to apply.  Starting with conversation is way more fun.  How quickly you can learn!  It was a great group, great instructors and great stories.

The atmosphere in the classroom was so relaxed that learning Spanish felt like a breeze and not like a painful task.  The relaxation exercises are really conducive to language learning.  We learned A LOT in a short time and it was fun and the environment was non-threatening.”

Brigitte sent this:  “Buenos Dias, Suzanne. su clase de espanol es excelente! Muchas Gracias!  
I have already done what you suggested and went into the program listening to the music and going over the lessons.  I know: Repetition……reinforcement…..thinking in the new language….it’s all part of it.  I loved your course and will certainly recommend it to friends.  Who knows….I might feel the urge and have the opportunity to repeat it at your beautiful place in Puerto Aventuras…..Quien sabe? Hasta otro dia y saludos a su familia.”

Marie wrote:  “I would highly recommend this course.  The amount covered in 3 days is amazing!  All with no stress.  The correlation lessons and pronunciation practice has greatly reduced my anxiety to go out and use my Spanish.  I really enjoyed the whole process and thank you for the take away tools.”

Triple Value


The key to success in investing and business is to find value.

Ecuador beaches offers great value.  Speaking Spanish adds value in a person’s life. These facts and a special savings this month at Ecuador’s beach adds tripe value.

Super Thinking + Spanish Teacher Glenn Sterling explains why he is conducting Spanish courses on Ecuador’s beaches that are coordinated with Ecuador beach real estate tours.

Why Spanish on Ecuador’s Beaches?

By Glenn Sterling

Perhaps your priority is quiet, quaint.   Perhaps like in the H. G. Wells’ novel, “The Time Machine”, you’d prefer to go back to a simpler time, less costly, with fewer rules and regulations, with more time just for you?

 Retirement on the beach in that quiet, quaint location in a simpler time you dream of does exist.  It’s less costly by far, has fewer rules, fewer regulations and most of your time is your own.  The most that’s not taken up by guests, neighbors, well-wishers and other such “friends” anyway – or by the beach.

You can be alone on the beach 90% of the year, you can make your own disappearing trail in the sand or surf.

ecaudor-beach

You can watch fishermen at work or admire their boats.

ecaudor-beach

Perhaps you’ll want to see the frigates (sacred to the Mayans) catching thermals, soaring high, or…

ecaudor-beach

admire the pelicans patrolling the surf.

ecaudor-beach

What you won’t feel from these pictures is the warm humid coastal air embracing you, you won’t hear the exploding surf as it tumbles beachward.

ecaudor-beach

You won’t smell the invigorating brine scent of the brisk sea breeze.  For three fourths of the year you may NOT notice the almost “perfect” climate.  Unless you’re an early riser, you may miss the morning fishing catch unloading on the beach.

ecaudor-beach

San Clemente, Ecuador offers all of the above, the basics to survive, thrive and little more besides quiet and alone time.

For the recluse in you, San Clemente is almost perfect.  Here you can almost make time stand still!

We Wait for Pain


We do not have to wait for pain as we age.  I’ll explain why in a moment.

First, let me point out that the sentence “We Wait for Pain” shows why learning Spanish may be easier than you think.

costa-rica-spanish-course

Super Thinking + Spanish teacher John Sloan teaching his first course in Costa Rica.

This sentence “We wait for pain” shows one reason Spanish is so easy to learn.  In Spanish there are hardly ever confusing words that sound one way but are spelled another.  Even better there are no words that sound the same but are spelled in a totally different way and have a completely different meanings.   “We wait for pain” could be “Wee Weight Four Pane”.

Spanish is a phonetic language.  There ya go.  Another example.  Even the word phonetic makes no sense phonetically.  This word should be spelled “Fonetic”.  In fact in Spanish it is… “Fonético”.

The phonetic aspect of Spanish is one reason why you can learn Spanish in three days.  See other reasons at Learn Spanish in Three Days.

However there are more important reasons “Beyond Simple” to know Super Thinking + Spanish and why a micro business teaching Spanish offers incredible opportunity “Beyond Money”.

The excerpt below from the New York Times article “Exercising an Aging Brain” by By Denise Grady shows that teaching is an exceptional career “beyond the money” because it slows mental aging!

Here is an excerpt from the article (bolds are mine):  MORE and more retired people are heading back to the nearest classroom — as students and, in some cases, teachers — and they are finding out that school can be lovelier the second time around. Some may be thinking of second careers, but most just want to keep their minds stimulated, learn something new or catch up with a subject they were always curious about but never had time for.

For many, at least part of the motivation is based on widespread reports that exercising the brain may preserve it, forestalling mental decline and maybe even Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.

“When you and I are having this conversation, you’re taking notes, thinking, remembering pieces of it, trying to relate it to other things,” said Arthur Toga, a professor of neurology and director of the laboratory of neuroimaging at the University of California, Los Angeles. “You’re changing the circuitry in your brain. That is because you have changed something in your brain to retain that memory.”

Dr. Toga elaborated: “The conversation requires nerve cells in the brain to fire, and when they fire they are using energy. More oxygen and sugar must be delivered, by increased blood flow to those regions.

“Why would that be good? If you are vasodilating, delivering more blood to certain regions of the brain, that is important. It increases the longevity and the health of those circuits. In adults, if I ask you to perform tasks you’ve never done before, the amount of brain it takes for you to try and do it is far greater than the amount of brain it takes for you to do something you’re already good at. So yes, exercising the brain is good.” Playing video games probably qualifies as a type of brain exercise, he said, though older people might not sharpen their skills as fast as younger ones do.

But research continues. Dr. William Jagust, a professor of public health and neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, said there were two main theories that tried to explain why exercising the brain might make it more resistant to disease.

One is the “cognitive reserve” theory, which says that if the brain is in the best possible shape with extensive neuronal connections from being used a lot, it may be able to withstand the onset of Alzheimer’s disease for a while and symptoms may take longer to develop.

A hallmark of Alzheimer’s is deposits in the brain of an abnormal form of a protein called amyloid.

“A paper we published showed that people who were more cognitively active over their whole life span had less amyloid,” Dr. Jagust said.

“A variety of things is important,” Dr. Toga said. “We try to encourage people to do certain things because it couldn’t hurt and may be good. Retaining lots of social interaction is really important. It involves so much of the brain. You have to interpret facial expressions and understand new concepts. If you want to learn to ride a monocycle or do acrobatics at 75, it’s probably not a good idea. But exercising more geography in the brain, I think that’s important.”

 Few activities are as socially interactive as teaching!  This does not mean we should wait until we are old to teach. 

The same article also said:   “My interpretation is that people who are more cognitively active have more efficient brains,” Dr. Jagust said. “What seems to happen in aging is that older people seem to have less efficient brains.” A scan of brain activity on a 20-year-old being asked to remember something will show less activity needed than in an 80-year-old asked to perform the same task.

“Older people seem to activate or bring on line brain areas that young people don’t use,” Dr. Jagust said. “They have to work their brains harder. So people who stay cognitively active may use their brains more efficiently.”

That way, they may generate fewer amyloid deposits. But he emphasized that being mentally active throughout life — not just in old age — was what mattered.
“It has to do with lifelong patterns of behavior,” Dr. Jagust said. “We tend to focus on what people do at 75 in terms of dementia. But there is more evidence that what you do in your life, at 40 or 50, is probably more important.”

This era of rapid change makes it harder to earn a good living and enjoy life.  Standardization… globalization and growing population puts stress on so many. We call it the rat race… a never ending struggle where the treadmill continually accelerates.

This stress and the unraveling of the social pact… mean that money… savings… investments… pensions and  Social Security are becoming less and less dependable.   The only real assets are a keen mind, dependable body and an ability to serve.

This is why teaching is such a great way to serve.  In this information era… few things are as valuable as knowledge.  Plus the process provides freedom and helps us remain mentally active.

Whether you learn to teach Super Thinking or not… learn to teach something.   This is a good way to return some of the blessings we have all received and  we gain more than money.   We may gain mental clarity and much more.  One Super Thinking + Spanish teacher who just completed his first course (which allowed him to spend the winter in South America and earn while there) summed up the greatest benefit perfectly when he wrote.

“Although drained and tired yesterday from three days of being “on”, today I feel very buoyant and charged up from the joy and positive feedback I got from the delegates.  Along with their progress from no Spanish to speaking before my very eyes, I can report to you in all honesty the feeling I have being part of their progress is simply intoxicating.  I understand now why you and Merri do what you do very well indeed.” 

New Teacher Aid Program.   There is a new way to learn how to speak Spanish in three days FREE as a Teacher’s Aid.  See details here.

Change.  We fear it. We resist it and we can let us ruin our lives. Yet without it… our existence would still be in caves.   As change speeds up we can embrace change and retire from the rat race.  For mental stability… the sooner… may be the better so we do not have to “wait for pain as we age”.  Hoo kneads the weight of waiting inn are thyme???

“Exercising an Aging Brain”

The Intoxication of Teaching


The intoxication of teaching and everlasting wealth.

A Super Thinking + Spanish teacher just finished his first solo course and sent this note.

Hi Gary,

My first class is done!  Overall it went very well and mostly exceeded my expectations.  One of the delegates had to leave early on the last day because he fell ill (he looked awful) but he did say how by the end of Day 2 he was already talking Spanish to his Spanish speaking girlfriend (who told him “whatever you’re doing in this class, keep doing it, its working!).

Although drained and tired yesterday from three days of being “on”, today I feel very buoyant and charged up from the joy and positive feedback I got from the delegates.  Along with their progress from no Spanish to speaking before my very eyes, I can report to you in all honesty the feeling I have being part of their progress is simply intoxicating.  I understand now why you and Merri do what you do very well indeed.

Super Thinking teaching is intoxicating because you grow dramatically as you teach.  This is a wonderful way to earn wherever you go and gain enormous satisfaction along with a never ending income.
