Wear Red for Success!

3 replies
Back in the day... when I was working very close with a mentor, I was very motivated and success driven. I wanted to learn everything and do everything I could possibly do and have as much success that anyone could ever dream possible. I was also inpatient... I wanted to be successful today, not tomorrow.

I drove my mentor crazy with questions. I did everything he said and more. Why am I NOT making any money? I don't know what else to do? There must be something else I can do? Am I doing everything right? I started to have doubts, I wasn't sure this was for me, I was getting frustrated. My mentor told me everything I needed to know. I'm sure I was driving him nuts with phone calls, emails, whining, complaining, frustration and more. What am I doing wrong?

Then one day my mentor said: "Scott, Why don't you start wearing something Red?" This made no sense to me, but he said that people who wear read tend to have more success.

Ok, now he had me thinking again and I Googled this: "People who wear Red have more Success" and sure enough, people have written articles on this. I found Boxers who wore red, won 6 out of 10 matches. Football teams with red uniforms had a better winning average and so did baseball teams, but I guess when both teams wear red, as in the 2004 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals, all bets were off. : )

I also learned that people who wear red to job interviews, get hired more often and if you're an internet marketer, you certainly heard the name: "Michael Dlouhy" right? Well, if not, Michael Dlouhy and "Big Al" Schreiter are veteran internet marketing experts and they developed the "Colors of Success" where they talk about color personalities. There are four color personality types: Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow and some people have broken that down even more, but for the sake of this post, I'm just going to talk about the Red Personality Color.

The personality color Red's motto is "Get out of my way!" Red personalities tend to work as CEOs, Attorneys, Pilots, Military Colonels, Bank Presidents... and Reds typically dress for success and their voice is forceful with volume.
· Strengths: Focused, Goal Oriented
· Weakness: Ego, Short-Tempered, Impatient, Un-teachable
· Reds dislike Indecision, Chit-Chat, Losing Control
Sounds like Reds are pretty successful people. Now you can't just become a red person, you are born with it. What I'm getting at is: The color Red is associated with very powerful and successful people. A very clear example of a red personality is Donald Trump. He's a CEO, dresses for success, has a big ego, and doesn't like to lose.

I also found that people who wore red to job interviews, had a much higher rate of getting the job and when you look at some very successful people right now, you will see a red tie or a red scarf. Many presidents wear red ties and so does Donald Trump. I've seen red scarves on Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin many times as well.

OK, so my mentor had some validity here and I decided to take his advice. Every day I wore something red. Not all in red, but something like a red shirt, red socks, red ball cap, even red boxers. I even tell people for my birthday and Christmas to only buy me red clothing. I've been doing this for about 6+ years now and yes I'm definitely more successful, but I'm also 6 more years experienced : )

The thing my mentor did was to add belief and the power of attraction. You have to have the right mindset to be successful. By simply believing that red was the key to my success, I believed I would be successful by wearing red. Every morning when I woke up, I thought to myself: "make sure you wear something red today, so you can have a lot of success today" and for extra success, you may as well wear your red boxers today too. : )

Call me superstitious, but to this day, I still have to wear something red every day. It gives me power and I feel naked without it. Just like my mentor... It gives much pleasure in helping others become successful. That's what yellow personalities tend to do which I am dominate in. When I start hearing my students whine, complain and get frustrated... I tell them to start wearing something red if they want to be successful. I know it seems weird and I get a few strange reactions, but it works if you sincerely believe that wearing red will help you become successful. It's the "Law of Attraction"

So my question for you is: "What are you wearing tomorrow?"

    Confidence. That's what your mentor did, he gave you confidence. The believing in yourself, thinking that a red scarf would bring you success is what actually made you succeed. It was not the actual red scarf, but the belief on the red scarf.

    I am not very superstitious, and I don't believe that wearing red will help me become successful, and that's the only reason why it wouldn't work for me, whilst for some believers on the coulour red it would.

    This is a complex area, the LOA can be tricky.

      Totally agree, confidence feeds the subconscious and when you have a thought in the front of your head your subconscious starts moving like Joe in Family Guy and screams "Let's do this!".

      The Law of Attraction simply says that you attract into your life whatever you think about. Your dominant thoughts will find a way to manifest. But the Law of Attraction gives rise to some tough questions that don't seem to have good answers. I would say, however, that these problems aren't caused by the Law of Attraction itself but rather by the Law of Attraction as applied to objective reality. This understanding comes through discussions about it and through your own investigation, your own exploration and experience.

      Basically... if I would have just wore a red shirt everyday and did nothing else and my thoughts were "I'm wearing this stupid red shirt cause my mentor said it would help me have success"... it probably wouldn't have done anything for me. But for me... I believed the red shirt had power and when I did the things my mentor taught me, I had success. That success would have probably happened whether I had the shirt on or not, but in my mind it was the red shirt. With a red shirt on... I had the confidence that I would get the same success every single day.

      But the objective reality is that you can't think that wearing a red shirt will help you win the lottery or find love. The red shirt only gave you the confidence to be a good marketer... however that could lead to other posibilities down the road, after all, who wouldn't want to be involved with a very successful person, but it will never help you win the lottery though : )
