Who do you know who has a lot of power? Maybe you know some
famous business leaders who own and run large corporations worth
millions of dollars or you may know some famous politicians,
successful authors, or individual speculators in real estate who have
made it big. Each of these types of people probably have buying
power beyond what you ever imagined, or professional power to
the policies or events of a country, or even the power to make or
break careers as they see fit.
A Different Kind of Power
But, I want to talk about a different kind of power and one that I
is worth a lot more than you may realize.
This is the kind of power that successful people know about from first
and the kind of power that cannot ever be taken from you.
It is the kind of power that can change
lives for the better, or make an everlasting mark on the well being
of many around them. So, what kind of power is this? Where can you get it?
Is it available to only the chosen few?
A Short Story To Demonstrate
Let me tell you a short story to demonstrate what this power is and is not.
Several years ago, I had the opportunity
to conduct a two and one half day seminar. This was a
motivational and life-changing seminar basically designed to assist
people in changing their lives, breaking through their own personal
barriers that were preventing them from achieving what they really
wanted from life.
It was always fascinating to see and meet the seminar attendees. Some of them
couldn't wait to get started, others were skeptical about what they
would get for their money, and others attended reluctantly often being
coerced or brow beaten to attend by spousal pressure.
This last group was always the most challenging to work
with - you probably know the type. They sit there with arms
crossed (a negative body language signal) and with what was a seemingly
permanent scowl on their face, and forever looking around without
seemingly focusing on what was being said or, minimally participating in
any of the specific exercises meant to help them build positive
mechanisms and behaviors to conquer old habits and thoughts.
And, at the end of this particular seminar . . . . .
