Change Your Life in Mirrors

field of social psychology, there is a
relatively well-known study that was published in the Journal of
Personality and Social Psychology in which, on Halloween, researchers
posing as homeowners greeted trick-or-treating children at one of
eighteen different houses.
of the houses, when trick-ortreaters
rang the doorbell, one of the researchers pointed to a large bowl of
candy sitting on a table nearby.

was watching what happened behind a peephole. A full 33.7% of the
children took more candy than they they should have.
researchers set up a mirror right in front of the bowl of candy, so the
trick-or-treaters had to see themselves in it as they approached the
bowl. The rate of those taking more than one piece of candy when the
mirror was there? Just 8.9%!
studies since then have confirmed
that adults, too, have a much more difficult time being dishonest when
they are confronted with themselves in a mirror.... even if no one else
studies always seem to confirm ages-old expressions,
in this case, "How can you look yourself in the mirror?" when someone
has done something dishonest.)
DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH
may be the most honest person in the world with
others, but we all tend to have the hardest time admitting the most
difficult truths to ourselves. We're of course not setting out to
sabotage ourselves. Most of the time we are not even aware that we are
lying to ourselves, or denying the truth, until things really come to a
head (i.e., until things get messy, frustrating, really tense, etc.)
of course we therefore DO sabotage ourselves by never admitting - never
facing - the truth.
about it: how many
times in your life have you been faced with "big" questions that, later
on, you realize deep down you already knew the answer to? But the
answer was difficult, the truth was hard, and you just could not, or
did not want to, face it?

career, or other direction-your-life-takes areas are you currently

simply, instead of trying
to ponder the big question while driving in your car, or sitting at
your desk or table, go somewhere alone that has a mirror.
washroom or a bedroom, where you can close the door to ensure your
solitude, is a smart choice. It is even better if you are so alone that
you can talk to yourself aloud: hearing your own voice ask and answer
questions prompts even greater depth and honesty.

from your own mouth.The first and usually most difficult step when
embarking on a new leg of your journey through life is deciding which
is the right direction to go.
intense little experience will, in a
powerful way, help guide you in that right direction.And though it can
be perceived as "sales-y" if your mind lets it, I mean it deeply and
honestly when I say that - if you are about to embark on a potentially
difficult new leg of a journey in life, or if you are already somewhere
on one - nothing is as powerful as The Nine Intense Experiences audio
program to help you thrive there.
this little mirror experience helps
you in some small (or not-so-small) way, I just ask that you imagine
how extensively the full audio program can help you... And then, with
the 100% satisfaction guarantee in mind in case your mind is still
hesitant, I urge you to try it risk-free today...

About the program:
It took my friend Brian Vaszily six and a half years of focused work to create The 9 Intense Experiences audio course...
What separates super-successful people from everyone else is that they focus their time, mind, heart and energy on the nine intense experience areas that others have forgotten.
If you doubt that at all, consider what Brian also discovered: Throughout most of human history, in cultures throughout the world, these nine intense experiences were an essential part of adult life.
It is only in contemporary times that the mass of people have forgotten and moved away from these nine intense experience areas.
These are the true “secrets” that the super-successful know and other people don’t."
