Chapter 7 Organized Planning

What I learned:

On the list of 30 major causes of failure, Lack of Decision was near the head of the list. Procrastination, which is the opposite of decision, is an enemy which must be conquered. Opinions are the cheapest commodities. if you are influenced by the opinion of others, you will have no Desire of your own. Keep your own counsel, reach your own decisions and follow them. Take no one into confidence, except your Mastermind group and choose only those who will be in Complete Sympathy and Harmony and with your Purpose.

The Declaration of Independence was born from a decision created by a master mind, consisting of 56 men. Six principles were involved in the story of the Declaration of Independence. They were Desire, Decision, Faith, Persistence, The Mastermind, and Organized Planning.

You might change the entire world with your thoughts, words or actions, or you might just change another person's world. Both are equally important. Any person on earth could be the one who utters a kind word to another lost soul who is contemplating his or her own life or taking someone else's life. You never know what that person is meant to contribute to in the future.

Just because Fate doesn't deal you the right cards, it doesn't mean you should give up. Anything is possible! You have greatness within you!

My heartfelt thanks to Nathan Grimes for being my mentor, friend, and encourager. He is always on call and ready to serve. His tireless efforts are very much appreciated. Much love to him, this entire group, and to Michael for these lessons.
