In a conversation over the weekend, a friend told me of one of her friends who owns a gigantic stack of motivational books, CD’s, DVD’s and ticket stubs from numerous events with some of the industry’s heaviest hitters.
Her life, however, is a mess…and she can’t figure out why.
In my opinion, personal development materials (books, CD’s, DVD’s, seminars, speakers, strategies) are just firewood.
Some people have acres and acres of it, either stacked neatly or strewn all over their property, which doesn’t do anyone any good…
…unless that person has the SPARK to set it ablaze, or is willing to put in the extreme effort to combine a couple of those pieces (i.e. rubbing two sticks together) until they create fire.
Too many people think that next book or next seminar is the one that is going to “change their life forever”.
To me, that is garbage. YOU have to be the most important part of the equation.
Some people only want a small fire…and some people want to burn their crappy village down and build an amazing new one so that many peoples’ lives are improved.
Whatever you want to create or achieve in life, YOU need to be the accelerant to make that fire burn brightly!
