A couple of days ago something traumatic happened to us.
We got robbed while staying at a hotel in Mexico.
Just so you don’t worry, we’re just fine. Our truck was robbed while we were probably sleeping.
Really a stupid move on my part but you live and you learn.
But for that day when I realized we had been robbed I was not feeling all that great. Combine the stress of traveling by car for 5 days, with feeling exhausted from a lack of sleep in this particular hotel and then getting robbed, made it hard for me to feel happy and bubbly.
I did what I could spiritually and mentally considering the circumstances but for one day I was feeling fairly depressed. Which is NOT normal for me.
But it was indeed a valuable experience.
Because there was something I did that immediately got me out of that feeling of despair and depression.
But first to those two BAD and SAD words that ALWAYS lead to depression of the worst kind.
If you want to be depressed all you have to do is think that you have no future.
Did you get it?
The two words that always lead to depression are — NO FUTURE.
Anytime that you feel you are doomed and have no prospects for happiness then you’re going to feel depressed and possibly suicidal.
In fact, every time I’ve dealt with my own depression and any time I’ve helped others deal with depression and even severe trauma I’ve had to help them start thinking about the future and not past mistakes.
It’s really as simple as that.
Of course, there can be other reasons for depression. Sometimes it’s physiological like when I had my depression for 6.5 years and it cleared up immediately (less than 24 hours) after eating a 50% Raw Food Diet.
But I’m talking about when the average person goes from relatively happy to sad, fearful and depressed over certain outer events in their lives.
You can even think back in your own life.
What about when a girlfriend or boyfriend broke up with you?
For many people that can feel ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE.
Or maybe you found your wife of 20 years cheating on you and now you are divorced.
Or maybe you lost your house in a hurricane, tornado, fire or flood.
Or maybe you went bankrupt.
Or maybe you’re stuck living homeless on the street.
Or maybe a violent crime happened to you or your loved ones.
These things can feel pretty darn horrible.
But the reason for those feelings is because we’re focused on what we’ve lost. And the more you focus on what you’ve lost the worse things get for you.
We feel that all is lost and that life is hopeless.
In my case, I lost around $2,000 worth of stuff. I also lost most of my clothes and two pairs of almost new sneakers that I really loved. Might be hard to find proper replacements here in Mexico considering my size 12 to 13 shoe size.
But I realized I could earn the money back and I’d be just fine.
As soon as I started making plans as to how to earn that money back (focusing on my future instead of my past – plus a great night of sleep) I felt better INSTANTLY.
It’s was like turning on a light switch.
From sad and depressed to glad instantly.
From thinking of what I had lost and to doom and gloom and how are we going to survive here in Mexico. (We plan to stay here for 6 months – not the greatest start to our trip. We lost a lot of “survival” supplies that we bought specifically for this trip. Stuff we won’t be able to get in Mexico without having it imported and therefore paying a 22% tax on whatever we buy.)
Basically I needed a plan to make me BELIEVE I could be happy again.
And it didn’t help that we didn’t have Internet for one day (right after we were robbed) and therefore I could not do any work that would lead to earning money which we drained considerably by taking the long drive and spending nights in hotels etc. etc. etc.
By the way gas in NOT cheap here in Mexico as the government has a monopoly on gas and they set the price. It’s almost twice as much as in the US right now.
In any case, I hope you get the concept.
If you’re feeling depressed it almost always means that you BELIEVE and FEEL that YOU DON’T HAVE A FUTURE.
To turn that around you have to focus on CREATING the future you want.
That simple change of focus from no future to a positive future can turn your situation around and make you feel a lot better almost instantly.
Of course, you’ve got to be able to detach yourself from the things you supposedly lost as well. That’s a whole other issue which is learning how to be DETACHED. Which is a vitally important quality for living a happy life.
ATTACHMENT causes pain but that’s maybe an issue for a future email.
By the way, I also have been helping a friend of mine who has been super depressed and was homeless and living in the streets. He was even getting beat up and lost his connection to his family. Plus he now has a son to support.
And it was the same exact issue with him.
He believed life was hopeless. That his future was absolutely bleak.
Actually he was too focused on all that he had lost to even think of the future.
But talking and supporting him he’s much more positive and making forward progress. Showing him that at least we cared for him made a BIG difference in his life.
And he’s starting to earn money and not stuck living on the streets anymore.
His problem like everyone’s problem is feeling he had NO FUTURE worth living.
So if you want to be happy then focus on what you want to have not on what you have lost.
You can almost always rebuild.
I’ll be sending a followup email which will show you “our plan” for turning lemons into lemonade.
Watch for it soon.
And please email me back and let me know if what I said rings true with you and is helpful to you.
I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Making the Raw Food Diet Effortless through Tastiness
P.S. This is what I’m doing to fight back from being robbed.
I’ve put our FLAGSHIP and BREAKTHROUGH program Savory Veggie Stews on a Dime Sale. In fact, it’s at a much lower price than I normally put it on sale for but the price increases a little bit automatically after each sale.
P.P.S. This is just the beginning. Later this week I may put some of my other top products on a DIME SALE as well.
P.P.P.S. Later this coming week I’m going to be offering an extremely limited elite raw mentoring service I’ve never done before. Where you’ll get to spend two (possibly three) days with me and my family in person here in an incredibly beautiful and raw foodist friendly area of Mexico.
In the past I’ve found that everyone who spends time with me finds it easy to stay raw. Let my 13.5 years of 100% raw experience rub off on you. I’ve made all the mistakes (including trusting the raw no-clue-roos) so you don’t have to.
So far out of all the places we have lived on this globe (like Costa Rica, Panama, Hawaii, Oregon, Arizona, New Jersey, Toronto, Florida etc.) this is by far the best for our overall needs. A kind of raw foodist paradise.
It’s just a wonderful summer like climate all year long with crystal clean air and blue skies. No chemtrails here at all. And it doesn’t get overly humid or overly dry for that matter either.
And there is so much beautiful nature and amazing beaches. So many incredible things to do out in nature.
And no stinking rainy season!!
Of course, there’s much more to this “Elite Raw Mentoring Program” but I’ll save that for future emails.
And for a few lucky early birds this elite raw mentorship program will be offered at a steep discount that I’m only offering because we need to generate some fast cash to replenish our reserves.
This won’t be cheap (though compared to its regular price it will be pennies on the dollar) but I guarantee it will be an absolutely life transforming experience for those few people who participate.
Get ready to take your health, happiness, energy, beauty and fitness to a sky high level.
And watch how your body, mind and soul transform to create a biologically younger and more brilliant you.
So instead of being crushed by being robbed (like I was for a day) I’m fighting back.
I’m taking action.
I’m making raw lemonade out of lemons.
And I’m very excited about this raw mentoring program. I had not thought it would be ready for at least a month or two.
But this robbery has forced me into quick and decisive action that I would not have taken otherwise.
