“The Secret Writings of El Furecat”
I have a lot of sayings.
Or, I guess I should say, my sidekick, my alter ego, who goes by the Spanish name, el Furecat, has a lot of sayings.
Having an alter-ego is a good thing for a writer. It gives you more pastures to roam, more mountains to climb, more seas to explore. It makes the pain that often accompanies writing something far more enjoyable.
Some writers advocate having a muse. That’s too complicated and “out there” for me. I prefer something much closer to home, something that springs from my fertile imagination.
Over the course of many years, el Furecat has dictated or written (often in my sleep), a grand array of poems, witticisms, one-liners, jabs, barbs and gut-busters.
Oftentimes, he gives me ideas in the shower, or while I’m out walking the dawgs. Occasionally, his words come to me in conversation, or while driving. And then there are those that arise when I’m coaching someone or having a seminar.
One time, whilst staying in a hotel, in Beijing, China, a poem played out for me in the shower. It was a long one to remember, but when el Furecat took a seat, grabbed a pen and began to write it out, it flowed into my journal and not a single word needed to be changed.
It doesn’t always happen that way – but when it does, I knows its priceless. A bonafide winner. 100 percent.
Well, a few days ago, when I was lathering and washing my skin, el Furecat gave me the title for a book of his best writings, and he wants me to act upon this book immediately, without delay. He wants me to put together a book of his Secret Writings, his secret sayings, his secret poems and one-liners. And he wants me to use his name in the title.
He also advised me to use the words, “Compiled by Matt Furey,” on the cover, so I don’t get any credit for these sayings, although he did agree that I will get all the money. He’s not greedy. But he does want me to use a portion of the proceeds for a charitable cause. I’m agreeable to that, as giving back is a principle I have written and spoken about in my previous products.
Now, you’re probably wondering what these secret sayings can and will do for you. Will there be anything useful or usable? Will any of these writings improve your life in any way? Is there anything about them that can be turned into daily actions that will benefit you as well as others?
The answer to all the above is a definitive “YES.”
Even so, I’m not the type of person who will twist your arm behind your back, break your jaw or tweak your knee just to make a sale. In the ring, sure, I have no problem doing the above. But in my personal life, I’m not the type of person who will call you names or demean you if you don’t buy from me.
But I will say this: If you hate poetry, if you loathe witticisms, if you hate powerful life-altering quotes, then this book is not for you. Stop reading, return to scrolling on social media, and move on with your day.
On the other hand, if you’re tired of the rat race, if you truly want to be somebody, if you really want to get to the Promised Land, then this book is a MUST.
Some of the writings will be more on the personal development side of life. Others will be about using the Power of Imagination to the hilt. Then there will be others that have to do with fitness, with fighting, with dealing with trolls and naysayers, with making money, with getting the maximum out of life, even if you’re a minimalist who has no interest in the financial whirld.
One of my readers, someone who got to see some of these secret writings a few months ago, was floored. He felt the power of el Furecat’s punches. And he wrote me the following:
“This is the most impactful material I have read from ANYONE.”
Another person wrote to say, “This is incredible. I dare you to publish a book of el Furecat’s sayings. It will change the whirld.”
Now, just so you know, none of el Furecat’s writings are a regurgitation of anything that is commonly taught in self-development circles. Everything he writes is a shot below the belt, or at bare minimum, a gut punch.
If you cannot handle anything you already believe being questioned or put under the microscope, then this book is definitely not for you.
If you hate poetry and witticisms, then this book will only gather dust. You’re better off without it.
But if you LOVE poetry and wit that rhymes, that makes sense, that is actionable, that will do you a lot of good, then you’ve got to get your digits on this one. Just as all my other books are ones you cannot put down or stop reading, this one is the same… but it goes even further.
You will not only feel compelled to read this book from start to finish, you will also feel compelled to read and re-read it and re-read it, over and over again. Chances are also excellent you’ll want to get a copy for family, friends and loved ones.
Why do I say such a thing? I say this because I’ve seen how el Furecat’s words have transformed my writing, my workouts, my relationships, my career, my finances and my life.
Ya know, I do realize that some people will think of me as a buffoon for putting together a book such as this, for claiming to have a sidekick or alter ego. Some may even think that I have a dual-personality, or that I suffer from multiple personality disorder.
And that’s a crying shame because the very person who thinks such a thing probably vacillates from one emotion to another, all day long. He or she might be calm as clay before reading the copy I’ve written to promote this book, but as soon as they read the words el Furecat, or alter ego, these same people get PISSED OFF. They scoff, condemn and ridicule. This is the exact opposite of who these people were a few moments earlier. And they think they don’t have a dual personality?
Then there are those who set ambitious goals in the evening, and wake up in the morning unable to take any action toward those objectives. Who was the person who wrote those goals last night? Is he or she the same as the person who woke up in the morning and can’t get going?
Maybe people who are this way ought to rethink their entire thinking about dual personalities. el Furecat once told me, in private, “Everyone who thinks he only has one personality is listening to the wrong person.” That was one that stopped me in my tracks and it still makes me wonder.
When we were youngens, all of us had imaginary friends. All of us had imaginary conversations with pretend friends (and/or enemies) that did not exist in the so-called reality. And then we went to screwl, plopped our asses in chairs and learned something other than real thinking.
Our imagination got hosed, and we’re all the worse for it.
And that’s why I am going to put out this all new ground-breaking, glass-ceiling shattering, gravity-defying book, The Secret Writings of el Furecat.
It’s not destined to be an international best-seller or even a classic, as it is not a book that is supposed to be for “everybody.” No. In some ways, this book is going to be similar to one of those secret society collector’s edition books. Those are the books you are not allowed to see. They’re only for people “in the club.”
I’m not a member of any of those societies; neither is el Furecat. And he says we don’t need to be in any of them because he has enough secret information to last another eight and a half lifetimes.
And he’s willing to let you open the covers to his secret writings, giving you deep insights into what you can do to make more money and have more peace of mind than ever before.
The Secret Writings of el Furecat is currently in the pre-publication stage.
With enough donations, I can move through this pre-publication stage much more quickly and get this book into your hands. El Furecat prefers to test the market before he goes to print, and I am abiding by his wishes.
With a donation of $69 plus S&H, this book will be printed by August 15, 2023, and will be on the way to you by mail before the end of August. In the interim, as the book is being laid out, we can give you sneak pics at the cover and some of the secret writings.
What do you think? Are you game? Do you want in?
P.S. When it comes to poetry, many, many people grow up hating it, mostly because much of it bullshit. It doesn’t rhyme. It makes no sense. It’s not clear. And it usually doesn’t help you in your life in any way. El Furecat’s poetry is totally different, that’s why he says of poetry, “If it doesn’t rhyme, it ain’t worth a dime.”
Although el Furecat’s witticisms and one-liners may not necessarily rhyme, his poems do, and all of them have a secret message that will change your life.
For example, you can take this one to the bank:
“Ears that pay listen than ears that don’t.
Ears that pay more listen better than ears that won’t.”
You can expect to see this one, and a ton more in the final.
Let’s get it on!
