“It’s Like An App Store For Mentorship”
What do Buckminster Fuller, Peter J. Daniels, and Andrew Carnegie all have in common?
- They each achieved huge fortunes.
- All three greatly influenced the politics of their time.
- Each made philanthropy or the giving away of millions of dollars a major focus.
- And each started out poor, uneducated, with no special advantages of birth, pedigree, or station.
Within the biographies of each of these men can be found the secret to their vast fortunes and lasting influence: PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT.
The life of each man tells a similar story of finding themselves in a place of extreme physical discomfort, no father figure to speak of, and a fervent search for a way to improve their situation.
Each had a defining moment when they realized they were of value and they worked very hard to improve their knowledge of the world, their language and communication skills, their business knowledge and skill set, their financial standing, and their relationships. And they did it through what we call Personal Development.
Most Americans spend way too much time (nearly 6 hours per day) engaged in entertainment and frivolous pursuits–and almost no time in personal development.
What would happen in our relationships, our careers, our community involvement, and our understanding of God and the cosmos if we took just 1 hour a day from our less lofty pursuits (mindless texting and Facebooking and gaming) and used it to improve ourselves?
Seriously…what would happen?
We all want to do better. We want to be better, feel better, have better relationships, provide more and help others more.
A person I respect once said, “the most dangerous information in this entire world is what we don’t know.”
And what we don’t know may just be the difference between an exciting passionate marriage and “just hanging in there.” What we don’t might be why we can’t seem to go to the next level in our business or in our relationships with our children.
I am not trying to add more to your plate, I know it’s already full. But I am suggesting that you take a minute and check out The Conscious Creator Mentoring Network and see if you can find something that might be worth trading for an hour of internet surfing or Facebook.
If you want a more in-depth sneak peak into the “Vault,” reply to this email and I will be happy arrange that.
