You gave a wonderful talk today. So much of what you said you have discovered over the years resonates with what i have been studying over the last 4. I feel like I am decades behind, but no matter…… when the student is ready, the teacher appears. It is wonderful to at least hear someone else thinks along the lines that few of us do. Never doubt that your calling and your work has sent millions upon millions of positive ripples into the Universe and into others lives. Whether you may realize it or not, you are leaving a substantive legacy upon the minds and hearts of humans that will certainly be passed on into future generations. There is no higher calling (in my humble opinion) and you are slaying it. You are clearly in the flow and it shows. Thank you from someone who knows the value of what you share and you share it in such a way that those who might be opposed to deep thoughts/ideas receive it with your humor easily. Well done. Attached is a photo of the kind of quote from the Ester/Abraham Hicks teachings I was speaking about today.

Hello Mark,
It is always so nice to hear from you via your enlightening emails.
I like this five year old prediction.
I do think that we enter the world hard wired with our gifts of who we are and will perfect to become at age 5 and on.
I like your tellings because they come from the perfect place, your heart!

I know you don’t remember me but once a long while ago you came to speak to us at our writers meeting in the Edmonds public library.
We carried on our usual of being given about 10 or so minutes to write on some words that were chosen by us and Jannette,
Then we all read ours out loud, when we were finished you came over to me and said “You young lady are a very gifted writer”.
I took your words home with me and have been writing ever since.
My first novel is called’The Secret of Anja’ it covers the period from 1938 to after the war.
It is on Amazon and Barnes and Noble where you can read some of it.
Just an added note, I am now 90 years old and writing my second novel ’Camp Henley’.
Your influence is very lasting and encouraging. I thank you for seeing my 5 year old spirit, it still resides in me and keep flourishing.
I send you so many thanks of appreciation.

Mark, I loved this month’s Ezine . Just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you this morning.

Today is my 13th year anniversary in sales and come next February will mark the first time we met at the Sales Summit in Round Rock, TX. I still have the original eBook you sent us and had you sign it for me.

Thank you so much for all you have done for me over the years but mostly for your friendship.

Would love to see you again or have a call to chat soon.

Hope all is going well for you. Congrats on the new Granddaughter!

Hi Mark!! I sure hope your doing well today! That’s an amazing story about your Dad playing in Cuyahoga Falls!! 🙂. That’s really something special to be proud of! Listen, I just wanted to take a minute today to thank you. Thank you for coming all the way to Richmond, Va. Thank you for being the man you are to me, and sharing your life, experiences, and wisdom with. I want you know it has deeply touched me. I read Freedom from Fat in 6 days, cover to cover, I couldn’t put it down! Like yourself I never made it pass 8th grade English. I failed 8th english, and summer school too, made a deal under the table to get into high school. I was then expelled from 2 freshman years at separate high schools. I could have gone to MIT, instead, I haven’t read a book cover to cover in 25 years. Your presence in my life has truly inspired me, and I think of you often if not daily!! If no one has told you today, I truly appreciate your presence in my life and I couldn’t be prouder just to be able to share your wisdom with others! I imagine at some point you may have told yourself you want to be a legend, we’ll sir. I think you already are! 🙂 Keep kicking ass out there Cowboy, there’s a whole new generation that needs ass kicking guys like you!! – From Facebook

I so enjoyed your presentations to the WIN group in Wichita. You are without a doubt one of the best speakers we have ever had. I picked up so much from your talks. New habits which I will incorporate into my daily actions along with Jim Stoval’s recommendation to write down 10 things we are thankful for each day in our journal. I’ve been doing that for months. Hope to see you again in the future.

I attended one of your training classes with one of our dealers a few months back. I am a Lennox Territory Manager that works in Washington DC. You & I did some role playing during the training, I was the guy that was a big golfer. From that training I took away a few nuggets that I started applying almost immediately. The impacts of these “nuggets” are sending ripples of change in every area of my life. I felt it was important I take a moment to share this with you.

  • Daily Journal- this by far has been the most impactful. I have never kept a journal before and this has stretched me way out of my comfort zone. I am finding myself thinking differently and have noticed an immediate improvement in the way I approach everything.
  • Thank you cards- I started sending “thank you” cards to every new prospect/dealer that I meet. The response I have been getting is incredible. This is helping me build relationships with people I have just met faster than I could have ever imagined.
  • Your podcast- I subscribed to your podcast and find myself listening to it weekly. Now I feel like I have your voice running through my head when I run calls, this has consistently given me fresh ideas and keeps my focused on what I am doing well and need to improve on.
  • The cd’s you gifted to me- You signed and gifted me 2 audio cd’s. I have listened to them at least 5 times each. I feel like I have listened to them so many times I feel like I own the material now in my mind. I enjoyed them so much I gave them to my Dad to listen to. He loves them.

The one “nugget” I haven’t put in to play yet is devoting more time to reading daily.

I see the value & have chugged your kool aid. This will be part of routine sooner than later.

The brief time we spent together and things you have taught me are going to stick with me forever.

THANK YOU for changing my life professionally/personally in a positive way. Many years from now I will look at back at my first journal entry and think of you.

I am looking forward to the next time our paths cross.

See you at the top!

Mark Matteson consistently delivers a message about expressing appreciation for others (co-workers, customers, etc.). That approach resonates deeply with me, as I believe everyone needs to take on the mission to make their world a kinder and more thoughtful place.

I have listened to the first book in entirety freedom from fear. This book along with meeting you I feel will change my entire life. I am going to continue to listen to the rest your books and apply them to my life. You had a great impact on my life and I hope we stay in contact.

“Coach Lolla,

I attended Mark’s talk on Tuesday night, and I wanted to express my deepest gratitude and thanks for bringing him to come speak with us. His energy was infectious, and his talk was very entertaining. More than that, though, he taught me invaluable skills that will make me a better athlete, a better leader, and a better person. I learned so much about goal setting, the power of repetition, and the importance of positive self-talk. I can’t thank you all enough for providing me the opportunity to meet Mark and to hear him speak.”

Thank you for making the whole room laugh and inspiring us with positive thoughts and good feelings! Pretty sure everyone walked out of there ready to take on the world after hearing you talk. Your presentation was definitely a big wow!

Mark, I just want to say, You were amazing in Santa Rosa, Ca. You had me laughing and kind of had a big lump in my throat, from that last story you told us. I always wondered how people looked at me when I was the center of attention. Not only our stature are close being equal but our way of thinking and how we treat those around us are amazingly similar. When we were eating supper that night, I video'ed you from the other table. I showed the video to my wife, when I got home. I told her, I think I found my twin, in California. She laughed and said, Oh my lord, another one of you!!! After watching the video, she laughed again and said, yep!! He doesn't meet a stranger either. I hope I have another opportunity to come see you again!!! If you are ever in an open forum in Louisiana, please let me know. Keep up the GREAT work!!!! You are simply AMAZING!!!!!!
