WALLS, WINDMILLS ME AND YOU. PART 1.
A Spanish lesson and a ‘beneficial thinking’ lesson. “Cuando soplan vientos de cambio, algunas costruyen muros. Otros molinas. ” In English, “When the winds of change blow some people build walls. Other people build windmills. Unknown author.
Hello and welcome,
Sorry to be late posting this week . I got carried away in my research for knowledge and information that will be of use to everyone who reads my Blog. I suddenly realised, at 5 a.m. this morning, that it was 5 a.m. this morning, so I went to bed.
It’s now 4 p.m. on Saturday 30 August 2014 here in sunny Spain and I have been writing for around two hours.
So this is Part 1 of another ‘two parter’. If you don’t’ learn anything of use to you from this part you can skip the next one!
I may even start posting every day and doing one post in seven parts. Any thoughts?
My start in life!
I was born prematurely, weighed in at less than 2 pounds and was not expected to live. In 1966, in Malaysia, I almost drowned. During that experience a large number of thoughts went through my mind. “Am I about to die”? “What would I regret not having been able to do”? “What are the most important things that I would love to do in life”?
Not long after the incident I realized that I was really glad to have a ‘second chance’ at life. I wanted to make sure that my life would matter. I wanted to make sure that I would achieve something. As the days went by and I asked myself loads of questions,(this really means hundreds of thoughts appearing in my head) I realized that I needed to act on the promise I made to myself when I almost drowned
I started focusing on my own personal development. I was always fascinated by, the mind, thoughts, thinking and how me/people work? I also had thoughts about training to become a teacher. The areas of human, behaviour, success, performance, growth, development etc were a large part of my daily thinking. I thought many times, “Is what I am doing really making any difference to myself and others?” and “Am I living fully?” The answer, I wasn’t.
Where I've been.
During this time I was an Electrician in the Royal Air Force. On day I had the thought” “I would definitely like to teach”. Ooops, I have a problem. I had left school with no qualifications! For the next four years I did the studying needed to gain the qualifications required to enter university. After leaving the Royal Air Force I gained a place at university to study for a Degree in Education. Aged 32, I was the oldest student on my University course. Not bad for a school failure eh!
My most beneficial education.
I’ve self-educated myself over many years by reading and acquiring knowledge from many of the great thinkers. People such as, James Allen, Charles F. Haanel, Walter Wattles, Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Paul Arden and Ekhart Tolle, among others. You may not know about any of these people but you can Google them to get to know their thoughts. I did!
Where I am now.
What I write in my posts, my website and my books is a blend of all these ‘thought leaders’ but I have injected my own ‘take’ on the central issues. This is to make absolutely certain that the information I write is, practical, easy to understand and to put into practice, for ordinary folk like you (and me)!
I created my Website and Blog with the specific purpose of helping you, and others, to start their life afresh, to re-launch your life!
Where I want to be and want to 'take' others
Very few people know about me or my work, yet! but I am not giving up on my aim to get as many people as I can to realise the revolutionary effect of realising the truth, power and self –empowerment of this quote, “What you think and what you do, determine what becomes of you”. Me The outcome of people knowing, understanding and applying this will make certain that I can reach my objective to, “Change people one thought at a time. Change the world one person at a time”. Me, again!
Continued next week, if you’re interested.
Beneficially yours, as always,
P. S. There is a sidebar with some free and 'to be paid for information that I have written. It should be of interest to you if you really want information that will start you on your 'life re-launch'. You can't THINK and DO what you don't know. Go learn.
