Steve, is that a true story?
Matt, thank you for all your work to help us.
I have PTSD and Agoraphobia and get panic attacks from just opening the mailbox to find a bill I can’t pay, much less getting on a stage.
Your dad sounds like such a sweetie.
MENTOR ME :) that’s all I have to say. What do I have to so to prove I’m serious?
He is an amazing man. I’m aware you want to work with us Jill, we’ll just have to wait and see if anything comes up. Thanks for staying interested!
Is there a better way to communicate with you? I would rather it not be in the public.
Very powerful story there Matt! It reminds me a lot of myself when I was younger, and even so now! I’m a little better about that stuff as I am older but none the less I connect very well with this story. Keep up the good work!
Thanks Erin – It’s crazy how seriously we take this moments when we’re young. Can’t believe Matt felt so strongly about it!
Ah, Matt. You are such a good salesman. And I really like your programs. Haven’t quite figured how to make them work for me, but I do like them. I feel like that boy who is never going to be a rapper/entertainer because his father did something to his self-esteem.
That was not an unimportant story you told. Very personal and effective and I thank you for it.
I lived through it, and still found it effective as well lol!
Trust me, these skills Matt teaches can be used by EVERYONE. I’ve seen people achieve unbelievable changes because of Matt’s work. Often it just takes us persistence and a willingness to adopt and cement new habits.
i love you, you’re amazing
Aww thanks Tamara! x
great, colourful story, Matt)) I’m sure everyone has had something like that in his life. It’s nothing? yeah, you’re right but not the worst case – I used to sit in the 20th rows and believe that I was going to travel into the body of some performer and forget all the words and moves. Psyche can be very cruel.
So I guess that’s why I need to work really hard on that and that’s what your Impact for!;) signed already!;)
Excellent Olli – you’ll find this programme incredible for dealing with comfort and presence on stage. Can’t wait for people to see it!
first of all thanks for sharing this info with us i can’t wait till the release day :)
secondly, you mentioned that we got to buy our copies .. the problem for me is that in Sudan we can’t purchase items via internet , because there are no visa cards and for other governmental regulations
so would you let me know if there is any other possible way to get this material.
We don’t have another way right now, but feel free to shoot my team an email on the day and we’ll see if there is anything at all we can do. I’d hate for you to miss out.
Thanks for your lovely words,
My the odds be ever in your favor
It’s a very touching video.
I really could feel the pain of that 13 year old boy. I felt like traveling to the past and console him.
Well luckily Anita, you don’t have to. That boy is fine, and I’m thankful for him because without him I couldn’t have been who I am today. x
I am getting your point. It depends on how we treat those big or little life accidents. Either we use those springboards and we can reach the sky or we stay stuck in the gutter!
PS: “Ouf”, I was uncertain about my time-traveling power!:P
My references : “X-Men” and “Back to the future”
I n addition to my previous comment. Yes. Odds in your favor because in the email it’s being offered to 977 lucky people hope to be one of them
I finally saw this video didn’t expect to get service out on the roads of Texas currently driving not me but on board
And this video was really moving I can completely relate and it got me e motional maybe it’s the road. Who knows
As your dad making that reflection Really got to me Especially putting myself in his shoes and seeing how far you’ve come wow
Hope to be one of the luckiy ones to receive the program!!!
Lots of love.
Hey Raquel, I hope you manage to get one of the spots on it!
Thanks for your support,
I avoided the front seats at your Get The Guy live seminar in Dublin for that very same reason – row three felt safer ;) I laughed out loud listening to your story but only because I understood and felt it internally. I learn a lot by watching you and am really starting to understand the extent to which showing vulnerability is the best sales technique ’cause a true sales person sells with real emotion. Thank you x
I have found that authenticity is everything. That doesn’t mean being vulnerable to the point of being weak, it just means facing down – and sometimes being prepared to laugh at – your old weaknesses or insecurities, which is easy when you have strength today.
Thanks for commenting x
Matt, this is exactly the kind of advice i’d like to see along with the dating advice. I liked your video where you were in your “Hollywood Studio” and showed you actually applying your techniques and then breaking them down, I learned alot from that. More of that please :)
Oh more is coming!
Fantastic! Great to hear… :)
Thank you for sharing such a personal story with such vivid detail! I can relate, and it reminded myself how I was in my early teens with school ( fainting while reciting a memorized poem was mine :( ).
The way it had an effect on you father was particularly moving! It’s when the people who are closest to us notice a shift, that we realize how much of a change in our previous behaviours we are making.
Though with age, there has been some lessening of fear, it still is a struggle, especially when dealing with people higher up at work or when meeting new people in an unfamiliar territory.
I am thrilled and excited about the release of this material!!! I really hope to one of the lucky few to gain access to “Impact “!
Thank you for sharing!
Shev x ( with fingers crossed!) ;)
Thanks Shev! It’s a joy to be able to share this personal information with you. I really hope you get in on the 31st!
Sounds like something I don’t want to miss out on, nevertheless I’m a student and I would hate to spend 20 min refreshing my page, and maybe even getting a copy only to find out I cannot afford it. I was therefore curious about the price range and if it was similar to man-myth (I think) in that it is a subscription type style with monthly payments?
Hey Marie! I can’t disclose anything at this stage. But stay tuned for thursday and I’ll have more info to you.
Oh no, I am so terrified that I will not do it… and I really need it..I have already signed for the “early bird list”, but what if there is too much people? I will settle the alarm for and stick to the hope to get lucky…
Matthew, if you read this, what can I do to prepare? What kind of payment will you accept? PayPal or credit cards?
End if somehow in the two first seconds all copies will be sold out, will I ever again get a chance to get the program???
I’ll have you more details on thursday (and will send you an email before then with specific instructions). But rest assured I’ll get you everything you need to have the best possible chance of making it!
Thank you so much for the answer! I am so excited!
oooooooh what a lovely and touching video!
The way that you can be connected to the heart of the people is phenomenal.
Iam so happy that I found you recently on youtube and I watched all the videos you uploaded but I wish you can upload a video that helps us girls learn how to make a man let go his ego because I face this problem with all men I fall in love with . Keep up the good work mathew , you are amazing !
I can really connect with the story you told, Matt, however, you have been definitely ahead of me and better at the analysis of charisma, how to make it work in your favour.
I am very pessimistic of being able to 1) be on time and 2) be able to afford it on the spot (broke graduate as I am)…however, I hope the programme will be successful and you will post it to general public soon! So more people in need of your advice can get more out of their own life and also give more to the world. Being terrifed and having low self-esteem will not ensure a person a life of his/her dreams, and of course, will prevent the person from taking more responsibility and speaking up his/her mind and be active (e.g. start a start-up/NGO/firm). People (including me!) are too scared to start something, they don’t believe in themselves, they don’t want to fail or get rejected, it feels too risky and scary. And this is how every day seems like any other day where you are fighting with yourself by saying: “I should do this…”, but that is where it always stays, in your head.
It applied to love life also, while you are looking for someone, when you are in courtship, when you establish a relationship, when your relationship is getting more serious, while you’re married, but also when you are in school/college/uni, when you have graduated and need to figure yourself out, what to do next, once you have your first real job, when you get stuck at your “first real job”, too scared to quit and too scared to ask for promotion.
I suspect half the people are introverts, living in the world led by extroverts, how will you ever get noticed like that? Some people just need to work on themselves harder, some are better at this and some are not, although they are not worse people, some people just never get over that stage fright you had at Disneyland, some people will never believe they are worthy and of high value. Society at large is not making it easier, like your relatives at the performance when pointing at you.
Being introverted, it’s like a stain, and as it’s implanted in your nature, you feel just powerless about it. However, some fight back and need to “fake it till they make it”. Which is not something most of us is good at.
It’s great you are giving 977 people a chance to hear what you have to say at Impact, knowing you though your blog posts and your book, my gut feeling tells me that it’s going to be amazing. As I feel probability is against me (your fan base is massive!) then I all I can do is to be on a lookout, and if I will be late or not be able to afford the programme at that very moment, then I really hope that more people can hear what you have to say soon.
We live in a world of people who don’t believe in themselves enough (at least I know a lot of people like that) and you have the potential to turn this around. You really give hope :)
Thanks to you and Steve’s contribution for making every day a better day :)
I was about to say, thanks for sharing that with us Matt, then realising I sound like a counsellor! I had a similar experience when I was 13, had to go on stage and do a demonstration on my own with a ballet teacher. So many people and I had to go on stage from the front up a few steps. Just really didn’t want to fall or trip up the steps in front of everyone, it was at the venue in London the pictures are from. I was booked to come but when you changed the venue my heart sank. How crazy is that years later, I am a very confident person this should affect me? Glad I am on your list for Thursday.
Many Thanks, Kathryn : )
God if this sounds a familiar story to me! I was that exact kid!
I can’t quite talk in front of a big audience yet (!) but I feel like I can surely crash a party or a group where I don’t know anybody without feeling particularly nervous, which I would have been so afraid of doing years ago.
It must have been liberating for you to share this story, it is encouraging and give us certainty that we can be even more comfortable than what we are right now in our own skin! And it can give you perspective in knowing that someone out there understands perfectly well what you went through at the time and admires a lot the effort you must have put into becoming more confident!
