Shiny Object Syndrome is Making You Blind

Lesson 2

You're Blind To The Truth

  • Chasing The Dream
    You are sold "what you want to hear" because... that is what you want to hear.
  • Looking For Quick Rewards
    You have unrealistic expectations of fast results for little work. This is not your fault because you are trained to think this way.
  • Chasing Your Losses
    The more you spend the more desperate you become to "recoup your losses", just like a gambling addiction.

For every shiny object you buy...

  • You are wasting your time.
  • You are wasting energy.
  • You are wasting money.
  • You are wasting your enthusiasm.
  • You are wasting your belief in yourself.
  • You feel embarrassed and cheated.

    Thank You Philip, for I finally found a course with no BS, and up sales. For I to have fallen for all the BS sales pitch’s, and this course I cannot wait to get into.

  • says:

    What video software do you use

  • says:

    so right 123 frustration and going broke
    Glad to be here

  • Victor C says:

    Hi Philip,
    I totally understand your takes here. I love and agree with them 100%

    I will follow you all the way and not Jono or the others but I would like to mention a couple of things.

    One, long, long time ago I read something like this : “marketing is presenting something and work with the people that raised their hands”

    I’ve seen Jono for long time, I haven’t purchased his trainings but I know he has have great success exploting what I mentioned.

    I respected him because he has gotten success with Marketing, which is presenting stuff to whoever wants to buy. Nothing wrong with that.
    I don’t respect him anymore because his latest reviews I realized he doesn’t even show all the features of the product and just want to get buyers at all cost.

    • Philip Borrowman says:

      Yep, Jono never tests anything he reviews. Most of the software he reviews are 100% junk and never work or ever has worked. And he knows this but he does not care.

  • says:

    Rewatched this video and it stopped me from buying Ultimate Traffic Boost – Thanks Phil

  • David S says:

    Right, that”s it! No more buying crap. I have so many ‘shiny objects’ on my machine that I cannot recall what I possess. So much so, that I recently bought the same shiny object again. It was only when I went to the login page that my Roboform password appeared and told me I already owned it. Fortunately, the seller did refund my transaction.
    I’m totally committed to doing this right from now on!

    • Philip Borrowman says:

      Great! Glad to hear it! SOS is a very real thing. So much stuff out there and information overload follow soon after. Stick with one thing and you will do much better.

  • Sibusisiwe M says:

    Thank you, Philip, for this education. I have watched this a few times now but the more I watch. The more it sinks in that this business involves me taking action and putting in the hours. I admit I used to think there was something that could give me instant results.

    • Philip Borrowman says:

      Absolutely. We are all guilty of thinking it will be easier than it really is. Keep moving forward with the training and you will be amazed at what you can achieve.

  • JJ A says:

    Aloha Philip,

    Yes, This has been the never-ending struggle and I only blame myself. It’s like I know that it’s bad for me and I pull the trigger again. It’s time to do it right and make the commitment to get it done. Thank you very much for your help with this.

  • John A says:

    This is so me. In fact, at first I was hesitant to get in to this course (TAO) because I was thinking…what if this is another garbage? You know what I mean. Most courses would sell it in bits for so cheap and then you get bits of pieces in the form of one upsell after another, then, before you knew it, you spent thousands on things you never need. I won’t be buying garbage courses again. Thank you, Philip, you overdelivered and there’s no upsells or anything. Awesome!

  • Abdellah E says:

    Thank you Philip this is exactly what I am suffering from, I’ll cut everything I am doing except for your tutorial because you are honest and values givers. Thank you again

  • John S says:

    This is my 2nd month with TAO. All I’m hearing from Philip is work, work, and work. I hear you loud and clear saying there’s no short cut in success.

  • Loren G says:

    Once again you hit this topic head on Philip. This is a better and improved model on Shiny Object Syndrome, especially bringing to light our emotional needs and redirecting our way of thinking, there are no get rich quick systems that can make a nubie to internet marketing rich quickly!

  • Les B says:

    Very true words Philip. I’m a big believer in F.O.C.U.S. Follow One Course Until Successful, it works!
