The Man Who Offered to Beat Me Up
by Dr. Joe Vitale www.mrfire.com
Today I received a long letter from a man who created a new self-defense system. He claims he can defeat anyone in under 3 minutes.
He wants me to promote him and his method. He went on to say he'd be happy to meet with me to prove his skills.
What did he have in mind?
He wants to beat me up.
"If I can defeat you within 3 minutes," he said in his letter, "then you promise to promote me and my products. Deal?"
He went on to give me contact information for his agent so I could set up match.
It might have made an interesting webcast. I can just see headline:
"51-year-old formerly obese Internet Marketing Expert meets 30-year-old Superman-fit Martial Arts Expert in Quick-Kill Match. Register now."
Gee, I wonder who would win?
I'd lose even if I went armed.
What would you have done?
How would you have responded to his offer?
Unless you're a fighter looking for a match, you'd probably toss this offer in trash.
I often wonder what people are thinking. Does this guy really think I'll fight him? And then, if I lose, I'll gladly smile and start marketing him?
