Knowing where to mark the “X” Sweet Spot!

OK, you’ve got a problem. It’s bad!

Your machine’s not working and your factory’s at a stand still! So you call in an engineer. He arrives and walks around the machine, listening to the sounds it’s making (or not making). He doesn’t say anything. He touches some levers and fiddles with something inside…

Then he marks a spot with an “X”. He turns around and pulls out a small tool from his tool box and taps lightly on the sweet spot.

The machine comes back to life with a happy sigh. You breathe a big sigh of relief!

The engineer pulls out his invoice book and writes quickly in it. He signs it with a flourish, tears out the invoice and hands it over to you.

“What! $10,000! For just an “X” and one tap? Please break down your bill in more detail!” you demand.

He takes the invoice back from you, writes on it and hands it back to you. You look at it and you roll your eyes! OK, I get it!

  • $1 for marking the spot “X”
  • $9,999 for knowing where to mark the spot “X”

You grin at him and he waves his hand at you with a smile too, a twinkle in his eyes before he leaves…

This is one of the stories about Nicola Tesla and Henry Ford. Unknown source but a great  story! It takes experience and training to find that Sweet Spot!

Knowing where is your `Sweet Spot’

Before I see a client for the first time, I give them their homework before they can start. It’s a list of questions… If they’re not prepared to do their homework, I refuse to work with them. It means they’re not committed 100% to getting their breakthrough.

During the 1st session, I spend about 2 hours with them. The first hour is going through the list of questions and discussing them together. This gives me a better idea of what is the problem and what kind of solution is required. The 2nd hour, we do some tapping and `tinkering’…

What you think is the problem may NOT be the problem at all.

That’s like knowing how to find the sweet spot and where to mark the “X” on it!

If you can find the main root of the problem/limiting belief and change this, then the other `minor’ roots are easier to change. If you’re a gardener, you’ll understand what I mean by weeds. You really have to find the roots and dig them out or else they’ll come back again quickly!

Like any Anti-Virus computer programs, you update them almost every day with new patches or upgrades. You do this so that you can use the best version to protect your computer.

Your mind is like a super computer and limiting beliefs are like viruses or old programs still running. When you decide to go up to the next level, these old programs will need to be upgraded to new improved versions.

  • Old program: Broke 401 >> Upgrade to Wealth 701.
  • Old program: Sick 455   >> Upgrade to Perfect Health 801.
  • Old program: Anger 535 >> Upgrade to Peace 789.
  • Old program: Unworthy 166 >> Upgrade to Confidence 811.
  • Old program: Unloveable 601 >> Upgrade to Absolutely Loveable 901!

You have a problem and you need a solution to get your life working or on track again.

So what’s this problem costing you? What do you want to change?

What do you want to save?

  • Your relationship?
  • Your health?
  • Your money situation?
  • Your job?
  • Your business?

We’ll work together until it’s done! 100% success!

We’ll give it all we’ve got!
