    Hey folks,

    Here's an article that I just came across and felt the urge to share with you here. And before that, I just want to say one thing that I just internalized after facing the difficult and hardships that comes with the process:

    Your mind is the most sacred piece of you. You can only achieve something if you have the control over your mind - and subsequently, your behaviours. You must be disciplined. You must own yourself.

    This just became crystal clear to me, after re-reading the part 6 on The Millionaire Fastlane (that talks about choices, you creating your own reality) and stumbling into this article yesterday. So here it goes the link:

    PETERSON TEIXEIRA - The Definition of Reality Is Subjective

    I liked the mindset of the guy and its simple and well written. I hope this ideas ignite some improving and add value to your lives.

    [EDIT: I'm sharing the information, not the guy. Forget his services. As our friend @lowtek pointed out, he seems to be a much better writer than marketer/coach. Read the article, reflect on the content and put into action.]

    Keep hustling folks, it's there for the taken if you really want it.

    To your success,
    Matheus Guerra.

    Thanks for sharing, but not because the content is valuable. But thanks because it's a teachable moment.

    Many people new to the "game" run across these sorts of articles, which are really just thinly veiled marketing pitches and/or fluff to get a little bit of SEO juice amidst all the noise on the internet. The material parrots what they've read in other reputable sources - you yourself linked it back to TMF.

    This gives the guy some credence, since he's saying stuff that isn't entirely stupid or off the wall. Sure, our thoughts help define our reality (that relationship is reciprocal by the way), but why consume such content from this guy?

    What's the harm, you may ask? It's just a blog post.

    The harm is that there's a strong possibility that at some point you may reach out to this guy, or someone like him, to help you in the process. There's an almost certainty that if you do so, you will end up disappointed and several hundred bucks poorer.

    While legitimate coaches can be worthwhile, as their experience can shave off some of the pain from the learning curve for you, there are many many charlatans in the industry.

    For people new to entrepreneurship, these folks can be tough to spot. It can be difficult to know who to listen to and who to be wary of.

    Here's my own process for spotting these types:

    1) Do they possess the expertise in the area they claim? He says he's a marketing coach, so how is his marketing? Well, after looking at his main page I can't tell you why I should pick him over the other 100,000 marketing coaches out there. Marketing 101 is to define your unique selling proposition. Why the hell should anybody choose you, your product, or your service? It may be buried somewhere in there... but I'm not going to dig around to find it.

    2) He offers coaching AND consulting services - really what is the difference? Just looks like he's padding stuff to me, because he couldn't figure out how to make the wordpress widget have two fields instead of three. It's a subtle point and you may think it's stupid, but he's a marketing coach. Good marketing leaves no confusion, and that's all he's left me with.

    3) Identifying as a CEO and founder when you are a one man operation. This is strange to me - what is he the executive of? His cat? I love cats, and mine is critical to my success, but I would never profess to be her CEO just to pad my resume and make myself feel important.

    There's nothing shameful about being a freelancer, but it's all about the framing. Why the claim to grandiosity?

    4) How about past success, either personal or for other coaching clients? I have no idea what this guy has accomplished in life. He's just a warrior. And an entrepreneur.

    With no employees.

    I don't see an intro thread for you, so I don't know how far along you are. You may be beyond the stage of being vulnerable to guys like this, and just genuinely thought the article was valuable. If so, then yes please keep hustling and less reading of content from these types.

    But for those of the other newbies here who can't spot these types from a mile away, go back and reread what I wrote and internalize it. Tune up your BS detector and be careful out there.

    It's a jungle full of predators with basic wordpress sites, warrior mentalities and CEO titles.

    And you're on the menu.

    You are absolutely correct. I didn't share the personality, but the article alone. Sorry if I didn't communicate it clearly - my fault.

    Yep, thats the case. I was just genuinely sharing the article to add value to this forum that have added so much value to me already.

    And because I am not vulnerable to this guy anymore, I missed the fact that his grips may catch some "less-exposed-to-this-gurus" that reads it.

    I reinforce what you said here. Most of the information we consume especially on internet is BS nowadays. Always consider the intentions behind what you consume and question everything before accepting it.

    And yes. Always be aware of what you put in and know that even imperfect action trumps 90% of the information you consume.

    Thanks for the constructive feedback, @lowtek
    You are welcome.

    Ps.: With that being said, I must add that this guys have really valuable content on his blog. Especially the ones about creating a really robust AI BotChat. Every business can benefit big time with this thing alone. =)
