Not for the easily offended

My last email elicited this doozy from Sidney:

“So your message is ‘If it can work for Hitler, and Manson, it can work for you too?’. This is not an enrolling conversation. You can do better John. By what underlying scientific principle are your methods going to work for those wanting to change their condition? After reading your email I’m left with Murder, Sharon Tate, Manson, Hitler and not the brilliance of John Morris and why I should listen to you.”

Sure Sidney…

THAT’S what I said.


And, surprise, surprise…

Sidney didn’t actually listen to the episode.

It makes me laugh. You have no idea what I’m even talking about if you didn’t listen to it… but you’ve got that opinion, still. Lol.

Look, I get it.

Like I said, most people shy away from this stuff. Or, they clutch their pearls because the sensibilities are “offended”. Fine. Don’t listen. Delete the email and move on. It’s that simple.

But, lecturing me on it?


The truth of it is, this kind of thing isn’t for the low-IQ freelancers looking for the latest “technique” or “hack” — and want it for free, too. If that’s you, you’re on the WRONG side of the tracks, poncho. 😀

It takes intelligence to get what I’m saying on this one.

It takes vision.

And it takes, you know… actually listening to the episode.

Anyway, if you can set aside your sensibilities and are smart enough to see this for what it is, then, give the episode a listen here:

But, you will need to register for a free account to get access. You’ll see how on that page. Once you create your free account, you’ll be able to access this episode AND all of the other free training I will be adding here.

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
