People know who they have the potential to be.
The challend is seeing that process through.
Self-development is an art.
It takes time. It requires patience. It asks you to step outside your comfort zone. It is challenging — and that’s the point.
However, the biggest challenge when it comes to self-development is the process itself. People really struggle with the path and all its twists and turns, much more than they do any single obstacle.
Should you learn how to walk the path of self-development, you will learn many truths to live by:
1. Any failure can be reframed as a lesson.
Self-development is a mindset.
To one person, a project going poorly or a relationship ending means they failed. To someone else, it is nothing more than another lesson on the path.
To those who remain open-minded, it is seen as an opportunity to turn it around, only to find that within the results lies a phenomenal, unexplainable, almost supernatural successful outcome.
By reframing a mistake, to see the lesson, you will ultimately learn more and move on to what’s next faster. The key is to keep your mind open and stay in a conscious state of awareness, so you never miss these golden opportunities in life’s experiences.
2. Anyone can change attitudes, beliefs and behaviors, if they know HOW.
Self-improvement is a huge business. You can spend a lifetime moving from one theory to another, trying them on, like a glove, to see how they fit.
The frustration begins to mount when you read DESCRIPTIONS of attitudes, beliefs and behaviors but cannot find the INSTRUCTIONS on HOW TO EASILY go about changing these three critical aspects of ourselves, for our better health and well being.
Oddly enough, you move on to more and more books, without pinpointing the frustration, the lack of a answers.
The HOW TO is where TLF focuses. The idea is simple but it takes an enormous amount of time to condense text down, and weed out the parts that are of little importance. To only capture the precise points that can then be turned into a set of guided steps is our approach or method.
Anyone can follow instructions, right? Yes, and no. If your mind is not at a place of ‘seeking answers’ then there is no need to attempt a course like this. But for those who describe themselves as seekers, they will find exactly what they have been looking for. As a matter of fact, they already have the pieces of the puzzle. The TLF course becomes the set of instructions that will fill in any gaps and show you how to put your pieces together. Most are amazed at how simple it really is.
3. “Dead last finish is greater than did not finish, which trumps did not start.”
Many people are not up for a challenge. They would rather stay ‘asleep’ in a state of subconscious, return to the doctor when they are ill, take pills that are prescribed for illness that can’t be explained and simply move along their daily life in a very routine manner. Maybe they don’t know how the thought process works and cannot venture deeper, asking the questions that ultimately lead back to the “Why” (did this happen) and “How” (can “I” fix it).
Root cause analysis is a process of asking the 5 whys, working backwards until you can get to the root problem. The TLF approach used these techniques to dive 1000’s of feet deep in the ocean, so to speak, so we could weed out the truths as we asend back to the surface where we present the keypoints we are trying to address. You don’t need to know these details but what you do need to know is the enormous amount of time and thought went into the final set of instructions that allow you to simply follow.
While this course will consume approximately 5 hours a day, in the beginning week, it will drop as you practice and get better at staying ‘AWAKE’, until it becomes a natural habit. When you reach week 2, the physical part of the program increases in intensity. Finally, in week-3, the light-bulb will go off as you put it all together. You may laugh as you realize, as you complete the course, “I can’t unlearn this, so now what?” It comes to your attention that there are only 2 alternatives, to move forward and up or move backwards to your old self and habits. Your new knowledge will be the motivation that should carry you on to customize your plan, stay positive, relaxed with your own daily meditations and feel absolutely great about what you have just accomplished … in only 4 weeks.
If you start, stop, start, stop, …. that’s fine. Keep going. Keep giving it a try, if you truly want to finish. It does not matter how long it takes you to finish, only that you gave it your best shot and took it as far as you could. Not everyone will be ‘ready’ to recieve the information that is provided in this course.
