I’d like to share a story about how important it is to let go of old ideas, especially when learning successful internet marketing.

Bear Hugs Kettle

by Emmett Fox

I once read an anecdote of the Far West that carries a wonderful metaphysical lesson.  It appears that a party of hunters, being called away from their camp by a sudden alarm, left the camp fire unattended, with a kettle of water boiling on it.

Presently an old bear crept out of the woods, attracted by the fire, and, seeing the kettle with it’s lid dancing about on top, promptly seized it.  Naturally it burnt and scalded him badly; but instead of dropping it instantly, he proceeded to hug it tightly – this being Mr. Bruin’s only idea of defense.  Of course, the tighter he hugged it the more it burnt him, and of course the more it burnt him, the tighter he hugged it, and so on in a vicious circle, to the undoing of the bear.

This illustrates perfectly the way in which many people amplify their difficulties.  They hug them to their bosoms by constantly rehearsing them to themselves and others, and by continually dwelling upon them in every possible manner, instead of dropping them once and for all so the wound would have a chance to heal.

Whenever you catch yourself thinking about your grievances, say to yourself sternly: “Bear hugs kettle,” and think about God instead.  You will be surprised how quickly some long standing wounds will disappear under this treatment.

It’s been my experience when it comes to internet marketing to let go of longstanding beliefs because most of them are other people’s misconceptions about the subject.

Case in point:

I Think It’s A Pyramid Scheme!

Now don’t you hesitate because you know

what they say about that.  Open that door,

and pay close attention, because I’m going

to ask questions later.


Learn how to have fun with it.  It can be very

rewarding, and enjoyable if you just relax

and let your imagination flow.


Let’s make it an awesome year…
