The lessons this time have really been outstanding, so good I had to comment early. Michael says ‘I've heard many people say that they Desire a change in their life, but most are closed minded and won't study any type of personal development.’ And what a shame because if they only knew that personal development was EVERYTHING they would go after it like oxygen. The old saying which is true is that you have to be before you can have and they only way you can be is though personal development.
I love the scripture that Nathan quotes from Proverbs because it’s really about visualization “Where there is no vision, the people perish; but he that keeps the law, happy is he.” If we can’t see what we want on the movie screen of our minds then we will probably never see it in reality. I have to admit that my mental imaging has been neglected for a big part of my life. I’m working very hard on making improvements. And Claudine’s thought goes right along with Nathan’s. She says” To be successful at these six steps you must be able to use your imagination to visualize the successful completion of the goal before it actually happens.”
I love what George says too “Our life is not based on our circumstances, it's based on our heart, our desires.” Another way of saying that is we can only control what on the inside, not the outside. (Circumstances) If we focus on the latter only it’s a recipe for disaster for there are so many circumstances you couldn’t count them on a calculator.
Tuula’s goes hand in hand with Michaels. She writes “So many come to Mentoring for Free and expect to see results instantly. They do not see where they have to put in the time to learn, to grow personally and then apply what they learn”. People will say they don’t have time for that, that they need to make money quick but if you want to make it that quick they need to get a job.
Marty writes “I believe when O Henry started writing, a more positive person started growing” and I totally believe that. I have been doing writing exercises for the last two to three months and it’s magic. Something that I really didn’t previously like to do has begun to transform me. I have written the last chapter of James Allen’s book called Serenity for 70 out of 90 days now and my belief has completely changed.
Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for providing this PD mastermind platform and to all my friends and mastermind partners for always sharing your brilliant insights.
