If you've ever invested in a Personal Development product, this short letter is going to be a revelation.
Because like you, I've bought and read all the best sellers from authors like Tony Robbins, Stephen Covey, David Allen, Brian Tracy, and Jack Canfield, and Tim Ferris...
And I've discovered one HUGE thing that all of these greats are missing... And it's probably stopping you dead in your tracks from getting what you want.
All These Books Have A Built-In Failure Factor!
Now, I have to be honest... I own all of these titles. I love these books, just like you probably do too.
And I know firsthand that these are great guys, because I have personally trained with many of them. They aren't intentionally trying to set you up for failure...
But it's happening anyways.
In fact, you might be stuck in a cycle that's keeping you...
Addicted to Failure!
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess this sounds familiar:
The Hot & New Tip Everyone is Excited About:
You hear about a hot new productivity, personal development, or business book. Maybe it was featured on Oprah, Dr. Oz, or you read about it online, or it was recommended by a friend. Either way, it's right up your alley, so you buy a copy and start reading your heart out.
And it's good... Really good.
This Will Definitely Work for Me:
Some of the author’s content seems familiar and old hat, but a couple concepts really jump out at you and pique your interest and curiosity to try them out.
So you forge ahead like a man on a mission, determined to implement this new “hack” or “trick” and see some results. You're ready to finally make a dent in your getting your goals finally done!
You decide to get started the very next morning. However...
If It Weren’t For… Those People:
Your day starts with some interruptions, and you get pulled into handling a few small, seemingly urgent things. There's the 64 emails you wake up to, the kids are sick again, and more phone calls and deadlines at work... and suddenly before you know it, it's lunchtime.
The afternoon goes pretty much the same and suddenly you are rushing to get the home because you’re going to be late for dinner (again).
Suddenly, it's next week, next month and then...
You Need a Reset:
You get frustrated when you realize you've done it yet again. Despite all your heartfelt best intentions, you've learned a lot, but nothing's changed for you. You failed to create any tangible momentum or achieve your goals...
Your frustration lasts right up until you hear about the next, hottest new productivity, personal development, or business book and you start all over again from the top.
So don't waste another minute beating yourself up about it.
It happens to millions of people, every single day. The painful yet obvious truth is that just reading these books isn’t enough to make your dreams magically come alive. You actually have to create a game plan, lay out some goals, and create more successful habits that support you realizing your goals and your hidden human capability...
The books you're reading and authors you admire just don't show you how to successfully do that. Instead...
Like I said earlier, it's not being done intentionally.
It's not the author’s responsibility to make sure you implement what he teaches you...
Just like it's not Bowflex's responsibility to make sure you spend 30 minutes every day on your new treadmill.
There is a process in the adult education and corporate training world called a learning needs assessment. The sole purpose of this assessment is to reduce the gap between the TRAINING and the IMPLEMENTATION of that training out in the real world.
Essentially, it's designed to help you...
You need the right environment, the right training devices, and personal support to make new habits a reality. These three tools will ensure you're learning and achievement cycle looks more like this:
It's Not Like You Could Call Or Email The Author Asking For Some Fast, Personal Help… Right?
This is reserved for people who attend the author's high price speaking events where you only get a couple minutes of the authors attention provided that you bought a VIP seat for several thousand dollars. If you could afford it and are willing to give up the days of travel and hotel costs, you will literally get a 2 to 3 minutes to ask one question and get a tepid fast response that might solve one of your many questions.
The second issue is that the training the book provided had only one training device... the book itself. We know that in order to set the stage to make training "sticky" and successful for the learner, you need multiple training tools and devices.
Once in a while in life, if you’re like me, we all need a helping hand with something, especially if you are new at it. I’ve been there and I can tell you that the expert support or lack of it will impact your outcome in every situation.
I Get You,
Because I Was Worse Than You Are Today
Eliminate Your Greatest Enemy…
No matter what is happening around you and to you today, there is one master enemy that is lurking around trying to extinguish your flame of productivity and goal getting ability. This is the same person who puts the brakes on all your efforts to get going toward what you’ve always wanted. It’s the same person who whispers in your ear that you aren’t good enough, fast enough, smart enough or rich enough.
Meet your major enemy.
Your enemy’s sole job is to keep you living a life of average.
Your enemy wants to keep you flying under the radar and never getting noticed for the brilliant contributions you make at work. Your enemy loves seeing you live a life of mediocrity and having you never master any one thing. Your enemy LOVES when you jump from one thing to the next “big thing” in the search for success.
Your enemy wants to hide the fact that often, you are closer than you think to getting what you want.
You Know The Person Who’s Been
Robbing You Of Your Dreams…
If you’re anything like me, I can empathize with what it’s like to have poor energy and be overweight.
I know what it’s like to be dead broke and wonder how on earth will I tell my family that I can’t afford to buy Christmas gifts this year.
I’ve taken the bus, worked graveyard shifts just to get by while trying to get an education in the process and make something of myself.
At times life can be downright exhausting… at least that is what I used to believe a decade ago.
I can tell you that nobody has ever held a gun to my head and forced me to eat that delicious second piece of chocolate cake or bowl of ice cream. Nobody has ever tied me to my chair while they used my credit card to buy things online. Nobody has ever bolted my door shut and siphoned the gas out of my car preventing me from going to the gym to get my workout in. Nobody has ever forbid me to spend time with the loved ones in my life.
Only one person stopped me from achieving all that I wanted is me.
In all of those situations, I've been the one that's chosen the piece of cake. I’ve believed that my excuse on a given day ruled out over getting my workout done. I’ve chosen to waste and fetter away valuable time on less meaningful activities. I’ve squandered valuable time that could have been used to build awesome relationships throughout my life.
I'm sure you have a few big obstacles in the way of you achieving what you want to do in this life. The only person who ever stopped me and robbed me of my dreams was me.
I Suspect You Are The Only One
Who Holds You Back From
Getting What You Deserve Out Of Life
But I have great news to share with you.
You can become the you that you’ve always wanted to be.
You can become an even more refined and accomplished version of yourself than what you see in the mirror today.
You can overcome the enemy of average lurking within you that keeps you from starting and more importantly finishing the goals that you have started.
You can implement a routine of consistency in a few simple minutes a day that will keep you on track to accomplishing something significant in your life this year.
You have the capability inside of you right now to be an awesome goal getting, dream accomplishing person with impressive feats behind your name.
For most of my clients, this happens much quicker than they initially think is possible. Why?
Because my certainty in my ability and skills to help them overcome their biggest obstacles is greater than their self-doubt. Sound familiar to you?
You start out on a project with great enthusiasm. Within about 48 hours you start thinking about how much further you have to go. 72 hours comes by and you think about whether you have made the right decision. 96 hours hammers you over the head with a dump truck size load of doubt… doubting whether you of all people can even be so crazy to attempt such a lofty goal.
Then it’s over…
Back To Reality and The Grind
That You Are Currently On
At this point, you might give up on your dream.
You then start plotting the next big thing. You ponder how you will face those family members and people at work who a week ago you shouted from the top of the building your lofty goal. You sigh. This is some reality that I have cooked up for myself.
STOP the grind you are perceiving yourself to be living. It doesn’t have to be this way any longer.
Your New Reality Starts RIGHT NOW!
I know what it’s like to get caught up by the daily grind. I get what it’s like trying to find a better way to get by. I used to have a lot of frustrations because I tried hard, but ended up spinning my wheels with slow and minimal results to show for it.
I read the books and listened to the self-help books on tape back when cassettes were all we had. Still nothing seemed to really be working. If that’s you too, it’s not your fault.
You have the heart to do better. You want to have reality match up with what’s inside your head and you want it now! Actually, you wanted it yesterday.
You Are Your Own Enemy Of Average!
You are standing on the doorstep of opportunity right now that will lead you to getting what you truly want and deserve from life. But every door of opportunity requires a key to open it. I have that key waiting for you to reach for, take and use to unlock the door and let it swing open to helping you accomplish your biggest goals, faster than you think is possible right now.
Don’t worry, it’s not as hard as you might be thinking because I have forged the hard path for you. I have shed tears, bled and been bruised in learning how to come up with the key to open doors of opportunity for you so you don’t have to.
I’ll Save You the Blood and Bruises
I Endured to Unlock the
1000 Year Old Samurai Code For Your Benefit
(use it wisely)
I’m Shane Fielder and over 26 years ago, I walked through the door of opportunity called an Aikido Dojo. I stepped into a totally foreign world for me. This place was the weirdest place I had ever been. Why would I willingly want to hand my body over to a whole line of black belt level samurai to become their training dummy?
I did it because I had a far out, seemingly impossible dream of becoming a black belt martial artist. I yearned to discover the secrets of the martial arts. I also did this at one of the lowest points in my life. I entered the dojo when my life had hit rock bottom and there was truly no place to go but up.
I was broke, fat, out of shape, single with no girlfriend prospects on the horizon and I had just learned that my mother was diagnosed with that horrid disease that starts with a “C” and is also named after a famous zodiac sign.
Going to the dojo was the one place I could get my mind off of everything else going completely wrong in my life. The pounding that I took at the dojo then caused more bleeding and bruising than I had ever experienced before in my life. It hurt a lot and every part of my body for months seemed to always be hurting.
At one point, I was introduced to “the code”. I had reached a certain level of proficiency when my teacher pulled me aside and explained this "Code of Behaviour" to me.
The Code That Worked Exactly As
My Teacher Said It Would,
It Will Work Exactly For You Too...
Once I started applying the principles of the code to my life, things began to change. I started noticing small little victories coming my way. I began noticing how people were starting to be nicer to me. I met the woman of my dreams who is now my wife! I even landed a new professional job that changed my financial situation for the better. The clouds that once seemed to hang over my head started to break and I saw some sunny days.
I began making more and better quality decisions in my life. Three of those early decisions have paid off in ways that would take me a few hours to be able to tell you the stories.
I Will Share With You A Way That
I Will Personally Teach You
How You Can Master
The 16th Century Code Of Behaviour.
You won’t have to shed any blood, tears or sweat in the process. I will save you the emotional and physical bruises that I had to endure in order to understand how the code works. Instead, I will walk along side of you. I will teach you the code and the system that will help you crush any goal that you want to accomplish.
The system that I want to share with you that will help you get your goals done quicker and easier is called:
An Immersive Coaching
Imagine for a moment what it will feel like later this year when you’re sitting around with family and friends at Christmas or New Year’s and they are all curious as to what’s different about you.
It might be the 15 to 20 pounds of excess weight that you suddenly seemed to drop.
Your brother in law might be blown away by the new car that you drive onto his driveway because you earned that sales bonus.
You could be the apple of all the ladies eyes because they have heard your wife bragging about how awesome you are around the house lately…
What will it feel like not having to work on the weekends anymore because you the most productive you’ve ever been?
I have designed an intensive goals mastery program for you.
In this 5 week coaching series, I will work with you to ensure that you don’t get caught by the failure factors in accomplishing your most critical goals. You won’t be left alone to fend for yourself like you have been in the past...
Instead, I will walk along side of you every step of the way, and show you…
You will learn how to win on the inside, so that you can get everything you truly want on the outside. And achieving your goals will be easier than it’s ever been, because you will…
Master The Intention-Action Gap!
Earlier, we talked about the intention-action-gap that has caused you to fail at achieving your goals. Well no more.
I will eliminate the three failure factors for you:
1. Poor environment
2. Poor training systems
3. Poor support to help you form powerful habits
Over the 5 weeks of live coaching from me, we will set the stage for you implement the You vs You system in your personal and work life. The key to putting this goal getting secret code to work for you comes in the form of an automatic system for goal accomplishment that I’ve designed for you.
I have researched, tested and perfected the You vs You system on myself and my Samurai Innovation coaching clients over the past 5 years.
When we put you in the right training environment and provide you direct coaching, you will experience great leaps of productivity on your top goals.
We will follow that up with a proven system that when implemented will take you about 5 minutes each day to get the system working for you and showing you awesome results.
"Thank You, Shane! What I especially appreciate is the personal attention you give to every dojo member who asks a question or encounters a problem."
"By the way, I set up a 90-day plan as soon as I received the new version (about a month ago) and I thought the goals were a little out of reach, but decided to try to accomplish them anyway. I have the first one done and the second will be completed next week! The other two are kind of ongoing, but I am measuring the results and that helps keep me on track. It's amazing what can be accomplished with some focus!
I have tried many other organizing/time-management/goal-setting programs and software. I must say that yours by far is the simplest to use and the most effective I have come across. I use the 90-Day Plan and Weekly Plan in combination with a paper planner (I'm not on the computer all the time). Plus, I did take the Ultimate Information Manager course and I love OneNote now! I have almost no paper files and I have no post-it notes and no papers scattered around. I can find any information I need in a jiffy.
All I can say is Thank You, Shane! Your programs and videos and blogs have been so helpful. What I especially appreciate is the personal attention you give to every dojo member who asks a question or encounters a problem."
“After speaking with Shane I’ve realized that I’ve neglected two sides of my business that I didn’t even know existed! Shane’s “3 sides of the sword” concept has changed the way I think about business, and now that I’m paying attention to all three of them, I expect to double my income next year.”
"After speaking with Shane... I expect to double my income next year.”
Cape Coral, Florida
"Write down this name, Shane Fielder, then contact him and ask him to mentor you .....in fact insist that he will mentor you"
"Think about taking your life to a new level ! How will you do it ? However we all need a lift along the way, we all need that special someone or word at the right moment. Write down this name, Shane Fielder, then contact him and ask him to mentor you .....in fact insist that he will mentor you in achieving a level of success most peopled only dream about. I know him, and I know he can do it."
"Shane Fielder is one of the smartest, most disciplined, high integrity, industrious people I know. He's a student and a teacher. I consider myself fortunate to have him as a friend, colleague and mastermind partner. When Shane decides to do something, you can count on him to over-deliver on his promises. His commitment to excellence is exceptional."

"I particularly like the way he uses real world examples from his years of business experience to explain timeless principles in a practical way."
San Diego, California
"Shane Fielder is a dynamic, inspiring and energetic speaker who has a knack for teaching complex topics in simple, easy to understand terms. I particularly like the way he uses real world examples from his years of business experience to explain timeless principles in a practical way. Whether it's sword strikes used in Aikido, increasing sales at a movie theater or reducing thefts at a parking lot, they enhance the lessons and make them more memorable, enjoyable and sticky."

Don’t Blow It Like I Did
In the past, there's been a couple times in my life where I really wanted to invest in a product or service that I knew would really help me take it up a notch to the next level. On a couple of occasions I hesitated to take fast action. Like you, I wanted to think it over a bit only to find out when I went back to invest, that it had sold out.
The other terrible situation happened when I went back a few days later to find out the vendor doubled my investment price.
My friend, this is a sickening feeling and it's something I call the cost of procrastination. I paid it and learned my lesson the hard way by taking a punch to my wallet and ego. That was worse that the tongue lashing my wife gave me for being so careless with our financial resources.
Don't Pay The Cost Of Procrastination
Take advantage of this awesome early bird special I'm running in conjunction with Black Friday.

Space is Intentionally Limited For This
Coaching Experience That
I Will Personally Lead You Through
Each Step of The Way
I don't want the experience to be taken by hundreds of people. If I did that, I could not deliver a superior coaching transformation experience and be able to give individual and group attention to you in an individual setting and in a group setting.

I will use our time together so that I start thinking about how I can help you make the fastest and best transformation into the you that you've always wanted to be.

You will come out with a crystal clear action plan, knowing who you are and what you want to accomplish. You will leave the experience armed with the confidence and focus to go out there and make monumental things happen for you.
P.S. When you win on the inside, you always win on the outside. It always happens much more quickly than you initially thought it could.
P.S.S. Five short weeks from now, you can have a concrete plan in place to accomplish 4 significant goals within the next 3 months. What will that do for your confidence?
How good will it feel when your friends, family, and co-workers start asking you…
“You seem calmer and focused than normal…”
“Lately you seem different…”
“Did you lose some weight recently? Your clothes seem a little baggy…”
“Did you do something different with your hair?”
It’s none of these things, and yet it can be all of these things… It’s all a result of winning the battle against yourself, and it all starts when you join today.
