Today I found myself in a conversation about "right" and "wrong." We were discussing skiing, of all things, and I found myself trying to convince someone that "right" and "wrong" are inappropriate terms to use when we talk about skiing. As with most things in life, the differences are more qualitative than quantitative; more a matter of degree than of a binary yes/no nature.
And yet there is something attractive about the simplicity of "right" and "wrong," so we're drawn to it.
If you're "right" and that other guy is "wrong," you can feel better about yourself.
You are justified.
You can rationalize what you decide to say, do, and think.
But, is that really the point?
Instead, we have to learn to answer the more complex and difficult questions: given the options I have, what's my most profitable choice? In the blessing of plenty, where do I spend my time and energy?
This is a very difficult question for most people to answer.
What about YOU?
Do you have a technique for recognizing and answering this question?
There are some simple techniques, of course. If you are focused on your primary purpose, it is much easier. If you've learned how to distinguish your choices before moving forward, you have a better chance of choosing well. Knowledge of the dynamics of personal development helps, too.
These are just some of the reasons that I created the Library Builder system (http://infinitesummit.com/) and are some of the concepts that I introduced in Open Your Heart with Skiing (http://infinitesummit.com/book.html).
But some of you have told me you are looking for some specific guidance. That's why I'm creating the new program. And I want to make sure I address your needs.
So, please drop me your thoughts on the most important questions you have about becoming all that you are created to be. What's holding you back?
Together, we'll find the answers and create the systems so you will succeed.
