Four Powers For Greatness!


Discover the four “power” skills that can stop you cold, or lead you to greatness…

…and learn how to get the equivalent of 320 hours of comprehensive instruction on mastering these four essential skills in just 4 to 8 hours

Dear Friend,

Four Powers for Greatness, by Professor J. Michael Bennett with segments by Paul R. Scheele, can help you

  • build confidence in all personal and business situations…eliminate feelings  of embarrassment, fear, and guilt
  • increase your income
  • improve the quality of your life
  • raise your self-image
  • get better grades
  • enhance your self-esteem, and
  • help you reach new heights of success and achievement.


So, what are the “four powers” for greatness?

They are simple things you do every day…

When performed poorly they steal your time, stifle your results, blow important deals, disguise opportunities, and undermine relationships. However…

When performed with skill and effectiveness, these four daily actions give you supreme power and influence with others, create a tremendous competitive advantage, maximize your time and efforts, advance your career or business, and fill your life with wealth and happiness.
The Learning Strategies Corporation Four Powers for Greatness Personal Learning Course provides all the knowledge, skills, and strategies you need to become a world-class communicator … faster, easier, and more efficiently than any other method we know.

Your guide toward personal greatness is J. Michael Bennett, Ed.D., or “Professor Bennett,” as his university students affectionately have called him for over 30 years. His expertise on human communication is well established. He has been honored with several awards for his accomplishments researching and teaching effective human communications.

In fact, Professor Bennett became associated with Learning Strategies Corporation after a television station here asked him as a reading scholar to critique our PhotoReading whole mind system for an investigative report. Intrigued and impressed, Dr. Bennett has since worked closely with our Paul Scheele on several projects.

Paul and I are excited to have Dr. Bennett condense his best tips, strategies, and techniques for being a peak communicator into a few short lessons … that anyone can use.

Incredible but true, Professor Bennett’s four lessons compare to 160 to 320 hours of college level instruction, yet they are condensed onto four compact discs. We include two additional for a total of 6 CDs. You can listen to all the recordings, review the written material, and complete the course in 8 hours or less.

And it gets better. We have combined Dr. Bennett’s work with the accelerative whole mind learning technology developed by Paul Scheele. More on that in a minute.

When you complete the Four Powers for Greatness, you will be able to quickly and efficiently absorb thoughts, ideas, and feelings by becoming a more effective listener and reader. Plus, you will enjoy the ability to express yourself with powerful new speaking and writing skills.

How can the Four Powers for Greatness help you actualize your dreams … unlocking the door to a prosperous and more satisfying future?

The best way to answer that question is to delve into each of the four powers … plus a fifth “Bonus Power,” included in your personal learning course. Professor Bennett teaches each of the four powers in a separate lesson. Each lesson is less than one hour. You can listen to them while driving, relaxing, or exercising.


The First Power for Greatness

Do you suffer from what Professor Bennett calls “hysterical hearing?” You may hear others talk, but do you always listen? LESSON I reveals how Effective Listening can raise the value of all your personal and professional relations. I’ve found that effective listening is the best way to gain respect from others with the least amount of effort. Discover…

  • Specific techniques to increase your comprehension and retention, whether to an individual or a group.
  • Simple strategies to help you concentrate, actively listen, and gain more value from each listening opportunity.
  • The most common pitfalls to effective listening, their dangerous result on your effectiveness, and how to avoid them.

The Second Power for Greatness

Inferior reading skills slow your momentum and can prevent you from shaping the destiny you desire. LESSON II covers Efficient Reading. Studies have shown that skillful readers earn twice the money of average readers. Let Dr. Bennett teach you

  • How to read 200%-400% faster … with better comprehension … guaranteed.
  • How to eliminate bad reading habits, rivet your attention … and get handsomely rewarded for your time spent reading.
  • The best known reading techniques to dramatically improve your speed and efficiency.

Professor Bennett is one of the few scholars in the world with a doctorate degree in reading. He is one of the nation’s leading experts. As you may know, Paul and I PhotoRead at speeds in excess of 25,000 words a minute. Even so, we were both impressed to learn that Professor Bennett’s technique of “skittering” is great for activating PhotoRead material. Also, I find his “rhythmic perusal” technique valuable.

The Third Power for Greatness

Whether you are speaking to a packed auditorium, a board meeting, a prospective client, or someone you deeply care about, LESSON III on Powerful Speaking can build your confidence and make you more effective. It reveals

  • How to add credibility to your ideas and thoughts … and enjoy an increased ability to influence and persuade others.
  • Four simple steps to eliminate fear and anxiety.
  • What you must ALWAYS do before speaking.
  • The 7 essential steps for planning, preparing, and presenting.
  • How to grab your audience’s attention immediately.
  • How to keep on track and handle distractions.
  • How to save time and avoid hassle in developing an audience-specific message that commands attention.
  • How becoming a confident speaker can make you more money.
  • Where you can find all the information and supporting material you’ll ever need to prepare for your topic … free of charge.


You may know that Paul Scheele is a world-class speaker. Companies pay him tens of thousands of dollars for him to talk with their employees. “Professor Bennett’s advice matches my strategies,” says Paul. “I could not teach it better.”

The Fourth Power for Greatness   

Have you ever longed for the respect and prestige great writers enjoy? LESSON IV on Professional Writing will develop your writing skill and confidence. Improving your writing technique can leverage your time and efforts … both personally and professionally. And the rewards can be substantial—Learning Strategies Corporation is successful partly because Paul and I write well. You can too. That is why we’ve commissioned Professor Bennett to create this course. Let him show you…

  • Seven proven formulas to consistently touch all the bases when writing letters.
  • How to write a business letter that will get you anything you want, whether it’s an interview, a sale, or a concern put to rest.
  • How to create a resume and get that job you want.
  • How to eliminate “writer’s block.”
  • How to help your reader get your intended message.
  • How to become more confident by overcoming the fear of making embarrassing writing errors.
  • Proven techniques to transform yourself from a poor speller to a master speller.

You also get a bonus “fifth power”

It’s a little known secret, but … when you know the meaning of more words, you achieve more power, prestige, and wealth. Simply put, big incomes go hand-in-hand with an exceptional vocabulary.

Throughout each of the Four Powers for Greatness lessons, Dr. Bennett has seamlessly incorporated a bonus fifth lesson, intended to help you automatically Build An Extensive Vocabulary.

Research shows that someone with an exceptional vocabulary (regardless of formal education) normally earns three times more than someone with an average vocabulary. Building a larger vocabulary can have a profound and everlasting impact on all your communications — whether it’s listening, reading, speaking, or writing. So go beyond the Four Powers. Discover…

  • Five simple strategies for immediately building a greater and more powerful vocabulary.
  • How mastery of the English language enhances your self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-image.
  • How words dramatically affect your chances for career advancement and success.

The vocabulary component of the course complements Professor Bennett’s Million Dollar Vocabulary Personal Learning Course that he also created for us.

And perhaps you would end up with 1,001 techniques to become a better listener, reader, speaker, and writer. But do you need all those? Think about it. If you had 1,001 techniques, you would be forced to narrow them down. Perhaps to just a handful of the most powerful and useful.

That’s what Dr. Bennett has already done for you. There is no other program available any where with the information that has been distilled into this course. It is an absolute must for any high school or college student, and unquestionably an invaluable resource for any adult who must listen, read, speak, or write.

Get started today. Small gains in your personal effectiveness now can have a compounding effect on your future results. By beginning immediately, you will get the best return on your investment. Imagine this:

Say you make $24,000 per year. Ignoring other reasons why your income may increase, it’s safe to say that improving your skill in any of the Four Power areas could increase your income by 2% each year.For example, after LESSON I you become a more effective listener. Therefore, you’d earn at least 2% more each year because of your increased effectiveness and productivity.

Now add 2% more each for efficient reading, powerful speaking, professional writing, and an enhanced vocabulary.

All these skills complement one another. They have a synergistic effect on your personal development. Therefore, we don’t add these 2% gains together, we multiply them. The result after 12 months is $24,000 a year x 102% x 102% x 102% x 102% x 102%, or $26,498. After two years, $29,256. Year three, $32,300. This continues year after year.

In this example, your income increased about $2,500 in the first 12 months. Now suppose this was just half right? This course would still be worth at least $1,250 in direct income to you, year one.

So please, review Four Powers for Greatness risk-free — see what it can mean for you..

Bill Cosby on Reading… 
“But as I got older, my eyeballs must have slowed down or something!…”It wasn’t until much later, when I was getting my doctorate, I realized it wasn’t my eyeballs that were to blame. Thank goodness. They’re still moving as well as ever.

“The problems is, there’s too much to read these days, and too little time to read…

“Now, mind you, I still read comic books. In addition to contracts, novels, and newspapers. Screenplays, tax returns and correspondence. Even textbooks about how people read. And which techniques help people read more in less time.

“I’ll let you in on a little secret. There are hundred of techniques you could learn to help you read faster. But I know of 3 that are especially good.

“And, if I can learn them, so can you—and you can put them to use immediately.”
