Thomas Jefferson + Home Based Business + Buckets and Pipelines?

by Franco on April 28, 2010

Quick, go grab a highlighter…

Turn everything off. You know what I mean…

Then print this out…

You’ll understand why this is important
as you study the lessons – it’s subconscious stuff…

Close your eyes – and breathe (not rocket science, I know)…

1 full minute (gotta start slow)…

It’ll seem like eternity, trust me – I’m fast wired too…

1 full minute – focus on the sound and feeling
of your breathing…

Then come back to this…

(cheater!) get to breathing – only 60 seconds…

ok, there’s the bell…

School’s in session…

Are You Set Up To Build Pipelines?

Or Are You Carrying Heavy Buckets Daily?

There is a story (and book) titled:

“The Parable of the Pipeline”

Written by Burke Hedges (good little tool!)

It’s about How Anyone Can Build a Pipeline Of
Ongoing Income In The ‘New’ Economy…

It begins with a story of a village where
the people were accustomed to walk far
distances with buckets to get water…

Long story short…

A wise guy uses his brain and imagines
some thoughts…

Thoughts don’t become ‘things?’

Think again…

His thoughts lead to the concept that
he could build a PIPELINE from the water
source (far away from his village) to the
people – and OWNING that Pipeline, he
could then trade the CONVENIENCE of
having easy-to-get-to water to his peeps
for a small fee…

Fee per bucket (direct sale)…
Fee per month on continuity membership (take what you need)…

Now the people around him didn’t believe
it was possible, or desired by anyone else…

“It will NEVER work!”

“Our people have proudly carried heavy
buckets for AGES! Are you ‘better’ than us?”

“We are proud heavy bucket carrying people!
Who are you to tell us we can have it easy!”

“That’s illegal!”

“Your idea is just a scam!”

“Dillard, Budd and Joe Schroeder already monopolized the
pipeline industry – it’s SATURATED!” (lol!)

And so…

His boys kept carrying buckets…

One by one…

Big boys and girls carried 2 and even 3
buckets at a time and took all day and night
to do it – so they never really saw their kids…

But “Pyramid Pipeline” boy carried his
buckets too! Happily! Worked as hard
as anyone else by day…

Then secretly built his pipeline by night…

When everyone else in this primitive
village was watching “Dancing With
The Stars” and some sad, drama-filled
ex “Stars” on reality TV shows…

And whined and complained about the
economy and impending doom and how
they were scammed by the govt, corps,
banks and online hustlers…

Pyramid Pipeline boy built his Pipeline…

He turned it on…

And water flowed…

Some believed it wouldn’t last…

Others “hated” on him and called
him a scammer…

But he started to win over some
villagers with a sneaky little thing
he called a “Marketing Funnel!”

He invited the villagers to learn about
his Pipeline for free on free webinars,
by free email trainings and conference

Heck, he even posted some free training
videos and reviews to his Pipeline building
tools and courses on YouTube and began
to give away his notebooks…

He copied every thought, every idea
and every piece of his experience he
had while going through his journey…

All his tips and lessons…

Copied them and offered them freely
so his peeps could learn exactly how
he did it…

He told them…

“I built my pipeline…

But there are countless other
villages that will never know about
this – unless you tell them and teach…

Here’s my blueprint…

This is a list of the tools I used…

Here’s my emails…

Oh check it out…

You can build your own with my info
and knock yourself out!

Or if you’d like, let’s partner up and
you can leverage what I’ve built and
help us teach the masses that want
to learn…

For a small fee, I’ll give you my
audio recordings so you can share too…”

This built him a loyal and enthusiastic
following – and won the people’s hearts
and minds to his cause…

Not everyone…

But many…

And in the end…

Cat was out of the bag…

The only reason people would
choose to continue to struggle
carrying buckets all day and
complaining all night…

Was because they had made a CONSCIOUS
decision to do so…


Permission and Philosophy (lesson two)

(take a short break)

Think about Pipeline Building vs Bucket Carrying…

Because success here is JUST that simple.

(ok, five minute break is over…)


Why do people choose to do what they
do and live how they live (even choosing
to carry buckets and complain about it)?

Here’s just a taste…

You can read a million books on personal power
and then go sleep over at Tony Robbin’s house
for a week. You can go to a new “make more money”
seminar every two months and even hire a personal
life-coach. Great!

But without a life philosophy that in fact invites wealth
to you and a philosophy that supports the idea that you
are even allowed to be wealthy, not much will change.

At the end of the day, people live to prove what
their self-image dictates back to them including:

What they are allowed to have, to BE and to receive.

If you’re surrounded by real mentors (which at
The Million Mind March you definitely ARE) get used
to them telling you that over and over.

Therefore, if you change the rules, you then change
your position and your order in life, which then changes
your world. If you change your SELF-image, by default,
your WORLD changes. Your perception of reality changes.

Go grab that highlighter and underscore this:

“What you fail to get and who you fail to become is
only because of who you decided not to be.”

Period. Space, Space… ( <--- got that from Cedrick - smooth as Sade, that Cat!) My philosophy doesn't believe in working to pay bills. Successful people would never DARE minimize their earning potential by limiting themselves to an income DICTATED to them by a lousy stinkin job "title." Would you? Maybe another unbelievable story will help here…

Only this one is actually a true story about how
some rag tag rebels blew off a KING and told him
to stick his buckets where the sun don’t…

Well, I’ll tell it like this, since we don’t really
know each other yet…

John Adams, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson
formed a TRIBE and SYNDICATED what they called
the “Declaration of Independence” which was broadcast
via their aweber autoresponders, and facebook notes,
their YouTube Channels and personal blogs online
and offline via post cards on July 4th, 1776.

(see, how it’s impossible that Al Gore “invented” the
internet… he wasn’t even born yet – DUH! lol )

And that Declaration of Independence – that single
piece of relevant content – was the singular governing
“theme” and “philosophy” that gave rise to America as
a free nation.

And NOT until that governing philosophy was born
(in thought and belief first), was America free or even
less so – a nation. So, in fact, the philosophy came
before the act of freedom. From there the governing
laws came to pass due to the philosophy.

It’s simple 1+1=2 arithmetic.

This rag tag Tribe of Pipeline Building Rebels later
wrote some other THOUGHTS into paper and called
it the “Constitution.”

The thousands of laws that now govern our nation
would not have been written – or conceived – without
that constitution.

And so it is with people.

And so it is with you.

And so it is with your target market.

What man does and the LAWS that man executes
within his life (ladies too) are directly woven back
to his life PHILOSOPHY. Everyone is a “Law Unto Self.”


Everyone is self-made. NOT just millionaires and the
laws that you agree with, throughout your own life
philosophies, are the mental agreements that we live
to PROVE all day, every day. Like it or not.

Show the world anyone who is “just getting by” and
within a few minutes of interviewing them, we could
easily pinpoint their own life philosophy that supported
and forecasted their life of mediocrity and their “ho-hum”
little “I’m just getting by” life existence.

“Whoa – hold on one minute there, buster, this smells
like “New Age” mumbo jumbo!!!”

Well – funny you mention it… it’s actually BETTER than
“New Age” – it’s…


You can find it from the ancients: King Solomon (read Book of Proverbs)
all the way to Robbins, Dwyer and Tolle – so get rid of the
chip on that shoulder and get with the eternal, and AGE-less

It’s about THOUGHT not labels…

It’s easy to keep carrying buckets…

Just look around, and blend in…

Work to fit in…

Worry about what others will think and where
they believe you should be…

And keep carrying buckets…

No one will get mad at you…


Be like John, Jonathan, Thomas, Ben, Katie,
George, Joe, Diane, Mike and so many others…

Change your thoughts…

Change your personal philosophies…

Hustle while they whine…

Focus into agony…

Learn to like it…

And build yourself a PIPELINE…

A “Marketing Funnel…”

Join and help out a TRIBE…

Journal about your Journey because:

“A life worth living is a life worth recording…”

And share your notes with others willing
to receive them…

Leave your heart and soul on the field…

And then see what your grand kids will think of you
LONG after you graduate “school house earth…”

You LEGEND! Look at them now! They are SO
proud of YOUR NAME! That’s it – that’s SO “it!”

For homework and extra credit reading asignments,
find me at the Tribe, on Facebook or YouTube

Later Gator…

And remember – in 2010 and beyond, it’s hip to be deep!

And smart, is the new cool

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my
comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as
yours and I’m having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!

Lakeisha June 2, 2022 at 4:05 am

Shenna June 1, 2022 at 5:23 pm

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Bless you!|
