Oprah Show Calls On Joey Atlas – …Yeah Oprah!

Just over 2 years ago – on Friday, August 2th, 2006 – I posted an entry on my ‘old’ blog – The Fitness Advisory. I’ve copied and pasted the post below if you wish to read it here, on this blog. But if you want to see the original, date stamped entry – you can read it via the direct link:

Oprah Show Calls on Joey Atlas

Here’s that entry…

Friday, August 2th, 2006:

Joey Atlas on Oprah…
In this week’s live issue of ‘Secrets of a Trainer’ you will learn about how ‘ordinary’ people, just like me and you, get on shows like Oprah and how I am already scheduled to appear on the show.

But before I get into that – I must tell you about this…

Yesterday, I was brainstorming how I would put this email together, you know, a basic outline – then sleep on it (while letting my subconscious do some more of the work) and then sit down today & type it – then send it.

Well, while going through my emails this morning, I came across this one – which most people would write off as coincidence – but if you understand the power of the mind (and our thoughts) and its relation to the energy of the universe – I know you understand this is no coincidence.

It came as a response to the free info I offer through my websites and my emails.

‘Hi Joey: I wonder why Oprah hasn’t discovered you.
Thanks…you are a social contributor!’

Did you catch that line about Oprah discovering me?

As I mentioned at the beginning of this email, I am already scheduled to appear on the show – the program directors just don’t know about it yet.

You see, just like achieving permanent optimal fitness, we must be able to ‘envision’ the results we are working toward AND we have to truly believe we are capable of achieving those results. So in this context I have already scheduled myself to appear on the Oprah show – the rest is just a function of time and me doing what is necessary to make it possible for Oprah to ‘discover me’.

Now – I am no different than you, or any of the others 50,000 subscribers to this e-newsletter – I just happen to have a neatly defined & flexible game-plan – which some of you may in fact also have. Whether or not you desire to be on the Oprah Show is another story. My reason is that an appearance of that magnitude will make my ascent to ‘worldwide fitness personality’ just a little bit faster.

Besides the piece of mental energy I may have provided you with in the paragraphs above here is something else that may fuel your fires…

Last week I received an email from an actual client who has purchased 2 of my programs and does read each issue of this newsletter (You’ll know who you are once you read the next paragraph ;-)

She happens to be a biz development/marketing specialist and here is what she had to say:

‘Joey,
Just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for your programs – I’ve been doing them for almost 3 weeks and I love them – but from a business standpoint may I offer some advice?

First, every time I get one of your e-newsletters (which goes out to both actual clients and non-paying subscribers) I have to wonder why you are not charging for it. I believe that even those of us who have purchased some of your programs should still pay extra for what your now offer as a freebee e-newsletter. You are spending valuable time writing it and the content is usually brilliant compared to most of the other fitness newsletters out there.

What intrigues me most is that you allow people who have never purchased any of your programs to subscribe as long as they wish – that’s charity, not business. Now I am a little ‘mature’ (from the old school) and sort of new to the internet models of doing business, so maybe I’m not seeing the whole picture.

I think you have a lot more to offer in terms of your biz structure and what you offer and ultimately how successful the business is.

Please take this as constructive criticism/advice from a client who believes you have lots of upward potential.’
– name withheld

Now – rather than answer this one directly – I thought it would be best to answer thru this newsletter so everybody understands why I do what I do AND how we can help each other move forward in life.

My motivations are simple – by helping others with small but powerful pieces of advice without expecting ‘payment’ in return – that goodwill comes back to me in some form or another. Its one of the laws of the universe. By unselfishly offering helpful information to those who want it – with no strings attached, at some point the same ‘energy’ is going to come back to me with something that I desire to be ‘helped with’.

Sometimes its fast sometimes it takes a while. But part of this is based on our mental state and our readiness to ‘accept’ the aid being offered.

From a business standpoint this has been proving to be a wise way of operating. One example is that just by ‘word of mouth’ or ‘word of email’ many of you have sent your friends and family members to my one of my websites to sign up for the newsletter – and a good many of those people have purchased at least one of my programs – and that is just one small example.

On a related note, as many of your testimonials and success stories have proven what help I am capable of offering – even just from some of the no-cost info I provide, in the near future I may be looking for some assistance (in the form of some return ‘energy’) from all subscribers and clients, in an effort to help me speed up the process by which the program directors at Oprah actually put me on the schedule.

In other words, we are all going to have a hand in this and I’m going to illustrate by example that almost anything you can think of in your mind’s eye can become reality if you truly desire it.

Now here’s why I’m high-lighting that ‘old’ blog post…

I worked wire to wire today on the two projects I recently mentioned; the ‘Butt Enhancement’ Project and the ‘Fat-Loss/Diet Coaching’ Project…

So – I didn’t have a chance to answer the phone all day – but I knew I had a bunch of voicemails waiting for me…

The last voicemail was from someone at… ‘The Oprah Show’…requesting that I call back, left me their number, etc., etc…

I have no idea what the inquiry is about – but we’ll find out tomorrow when I return the call…

I’ll keep you posted…

And remember…
