Nice tip I heard today. Usually when people are eager to dive into various motivational material to hopefully spark some energy to change their life around the expectation is that you go through the course and with that new knowledge you will be a completely different person. However, in many cases people just end up in the same rut once they head back home for some reason.
One important point that was brought up is that you have to be willing to change your environment and surroundings. For example, if you just got back from hanging around with a bunch of successful people that generated all these ideas and positive energy then of course you are going to feel very good. But if you simply go back next day to hanging around people that are simply negative in every way they will simply suck everything out of you and you will be back to square one.
So true I thought. I suppose it can be true in every aspect. For example, if you went and took the best financial management course for a year where it seems like you have everything set now, if you continue to hang around others that insist in blowing all their money away on the most trivial ways then most likely you will be back in that situation. I guess another way of putting it is that you have to be truly ready to change your life before worrying about what to learn to help you get to where you want.
