- More confused than before
- It’s you becoming something better gradually
People think that when they read a book, or attend a seminar they are magically improved. No, all they did was expose themselves to something that may, or may not improve them, or their lives.
You see, personal development and improvement is a process, it’s not an event. You could go to a motivational seminar every weekend for a year and then see if you’ve improved or developed. Chances are you are now more confused than before you went to the first one.
We have said before that it’s you becoming something better gradually. That’s the process. You don’t get something by reading books, or going to seminars – you are becoming something different. Let’s hope that you choose the right books and the right events to go to where you actually make a change as a result of the experience. It’s never a static process, that why we think it should be called: personal developing.
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?
ANSWER: That you don’t ever get something just because you are chasing it, you have to become something.
QUESTION: Why is this information timely?
ANSWER: This information is timely because as we said in our last session about being manipulated, people are hardly ever more manipulated than from a “Guru” at a seminar.
QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: You can start by acknowledging that everything and all the information you need to change, or develop – you already have.
COMMENTARY: Personal development and improvement has been sold to the masses as entertainment. Something you do on the weekend, or make a vacation out of it. It’s not your special occasion, it’s the Guru’s special occasion. You paid big bucks for the “privilege” of meeting with him in Maui, where he will stay an extra 2 weeks with his family for a nice vacation after the event that you made possible. But, like that weekend, vacation, or occasion, it wears off. You learned a few interesting things and maybe even have some bragging rights for attending, but your persistent restlessness is causing you to imagine somewhere else you could have gone. You are just moving from one distraction to another and wondering why you still have that empty hole inside you. Don’t kid yourself by chasing things, and seeking quick fixes. Instant gratification is not the path to “personal developing” it’s fleeting. Do you like how you are personally developing? Slow down and take a look inside. Invest in some alone, calm time; allowing yourself to show itself. This is how personal developing really happens.
