Why had I not noticed these things although I was in a nicely lite room?
Write-up by Larry James Reed
I want to take a few minutes to share a line or two from one of my preferred books Psycho-Cybernetics I have read it by way of a couple of times and also have the audio version which I listen to when I'm on the road. I came across this book a couple of years ago by sort of a strange manner, I had went to a free Robert Allen Genuine Estate Seminar in Tulsa, Oklahoma sat by way of the program, a very stirring presentation by a young gentleman pushing 70 yes 70, distinguished searching and really specialist sounding. Toward the finish of the speak the speaker turned his concentrate on me, an unconformable glare whilst finishing up his speak admonishing me to get in or lose out on an chance to greater my condition in life. There had been a couple of points to purchase at the back table and a hawker at the back promoting them at a fevered pace, I respectfully declined picked up a couple of tickets to the 2 day event in Dallas and headed out the door. It was early evening and I, a smoker at the time, had set in that room for 2 hours without having a cigarette, I rapidly drew the plastic sandwich bag( Leading tobacco and papers) from my front pocket, rolled a cigarette, licked it shut, pulled out my lighter.....ah relief. I wasn't the only 1, there under a tree across the parking lot I produced out the speaker who had seeming selected me to release his fury on at the finish of the talk. I wanted to know what that was all about, as I got closer I noticed his seemingly pricey suit coat was torn at the hem, not a large tear but noticeable a couple of other points scuffed shoes, belt to huge. Why had I not noticed these items whilst I was in a properly lite room? Now I had two questions that I needed to seek answers for. I came proper out and asked him "Why had been you picking at me in there" he took a long drag off his burnt to the filter cigarette looked me in the eye and stated you need to go to the next event. Why are you performing these 2 hour program's you are a actually wonderful speaker? Thanks he stated Where do you teach you classes? I don't teach classes What is it like to perform for Robert Allen? I don't work for Robert Allen, I perform as a independent contractor and I got to go. Got to be in Wichita tomorrow then Kansas City the next day and somewhere the.............. He was gone,,,honest I had a spiritual knowledge that warm evening a shiver ran up my spine, latter it reminded me of the story of the disciples not recognizing Jesus following the resurrection. I have believed about it numerous occasions because yes I know speakers have all kind of tools to sell, the looks the hands........ for me this was a spiritual knowledge none the much less. What was I telling you about, oh yeah how I came by the book. I went to the meeting in Dallas, met a lady that worked with the Robert Allen company. Couldn't afford to get there material, one of the ladies that worked in the company told me about a friend of hers I necessary to speak to, I named him he told me to get my crap together gave me a list of books to read and is nonetheless a mentor of mine. One of the Books Psycho-Cybernetics, I feel the man in Tulsa that night provided a bridge to chance but it was my responsibility to cross over.Larry James Reed
"What is chance, and when does it knock? It by no means knocks. You can wait a entire lifetime, listening, hoping, and you will hear no knocking. None at all. You are opportunity, and you must knock on the door leading to your destiny. You prepare oneself to recognize opportunity, to pursue and seize opportunity as you develop the strength of your personality, and build a self-image with which you are able to live with your self-respect alive and growing." - Maxwell Maltz (U.S. plastic surgeon, motivational author, and creator of the Psycho-Cybernetics, 1927-2003)
