“So many thirsty pass so close to the water, yet do not drink.”—Sufi Proverb

Jim Rohn, a great speaker and business philosopher, writes that motivation is a mystery. He said, “Give a lecture to a thousand people. One walks out and says, ‘I’m going to change my life.’ Another one walks out with a yawn and says, ‘I’ve heard all this before.’ Why is that?” He shakes his head in wonder that a millionaire tells a thousand people about a book that started him on the path to wealth, yet very few of them ever get the book. If people are listening to this man talk, and probably paid money to hear him, why wouldn’t they do what he told them to do? He called this a mystery of life.

During one session of the Financial Stress Reduction Workshop, I had twenty-five participants. On the day of the last class, twenty-four of them wrote glowing reviews of the course on their evaluation sheets. The twenty-fifth didn’t come to the last class, but instead left a message on voice-mail that she “didn’t hear anything new” and wanted a refund of her money. Why was that? She heard the same information.
Why couldn’t I reach her, too?

Many people are looking for someone special who holds the key to their success. They believe that the right key will unlock their potential. What they don’t realize is that everyone has that key. They’re being showered with keys all the time. They just don’t turn it in their lock. Instead of saying, “This isn’t working for me,” they need to say, “How can I make this work for me?”

Look for your key today. Then put it in your lock and turn it.

Today’s Affirmation: “I learn from all around me and grow wiser, richer, and happier every day.”

A friend of mine said, “Vacation is the reality – work is an illusion.” Hee.

Taking heed of my own advice to be sure to take lots of time off to enjoy life and be a “human being” instead of a “human doing”, I’m on vacation until September 7th. Please read and enjoy the daily pages from The Wealthy Spirit while I’m gone. I’d love to read your comments, too, so post away!

Have a glorious day, filled with joy, love, and lots of goodies!
