What can you learn by studying a powerseller? Everything!

eBay Secret Tip: You must study a PowerSeller to become a Powerseller. Do what they do
and you'll pretty much be guaranteed success. Author and motivational speaker Anthony
Robbins calls this "modeling." We also suggest you read  THE SCIENCE OF GETTING RICH by
Wallace D. Wattles.

So get to know those who are PowerSellers. Even buy from them! You may get wind of a
new product idea, discover a trick about listing on eBay or uncover a packing/shipping tip. Be
creative to see how you can improve delivery, package items better, or deliver a quality
product. In a word:
Spy on Powersellers. The secret is simple: model a PowerSeller's
success, and then be creative without competing with them. Example:
John Thornhill.

Note:  This guide is based on "Patterns of Success." If you have but an inkling of a negative thought about rich
people, and hold steadfast with unfavorable adjectives towards them, then you have cursed yourself with a lifetime of
servitude to your current circumstance. This smacks the truth. You can not put yourself in opposition to the very thing
you desire.

As nature has its ebbs and tides, so are your opportunities in life. You must take direction to steer yourself in the
direction you choose. Nature has left for you clues about its bounty in every crystal formation, in every leaf or blade of
grass, in the growth of every living.

Open your heart to the premise that life is good and that all the bounty of the earth is possible for you to attain. Have
peace in knowing that without a competitive spirit, without hatred, and without , wealth is attained, and easily. It is with
gratitude and These are the "patterns of success." When you study the patterns of success, then and only then can
you learn to duplicate them. Make it your first calling, then to study the masters and the patterns of success, so that
you may follow the path of the great men and women before you...
