If I’ve learned anything from working with Dream Into It: The Roadmap to Freedom, it is this: You can sit behind the steering wheel of a motionless car for as long as you want, but you’re still not going anywhere.
My buddy, Waldo Waldman, wrote a post on his Wingman Blog recently about coming across a homeless man. I couldn’t help but think, “What if the guy had given the five dollars back to Waldo and asked him for his five best recommendations on how to get off the street instead?”
Waldo is a master of the mission. Five words from him is worth a whole lot more than five bucks any day. The homeless guy didn’t know that, though. And chances are he wouldn’t have been able to hear the solution, even if it had been offered. That’s the way we are, for the most part. Short-sighted and dreaming way too low.
I meet folks every day who need Dream Into It, but the only ones the program can help are those who pick it up and use the tools it provides.
Sometimes, it’s all I can do to hold back and not be blunt about it. It is painful to see someone continue to suffer and complain when you know that there is a simple solution to every problem. The fact is, though, that some people don’t really want a solution–they just want someone or something to blame.
Let’s say, for example, that I’m speaking with someone who is just not making it where he is. Every job he gets and every relationship he enters ends up going sour. He has a plan: Move.
He wants me to help him figure out how the details–where to go, where to live, where to work. My response is to remind him of something that I know to be sure: “Wherever you go; there you are.”
I caution him against thinking that a move is going to change anything important–oh, it would distract him for awhile. It could provide some excitement… but the real battle he needs to fight will just be waiting for him when he unpacks.
My experience is that nine out of ten human beings will be offended at that idea. They will accuse me of being insensitive, ignorant, just plain wrong… or a combination thereof. I likely won’t hear from them again until the new situation turns out as bad or worse than the old one–until they have decided that that they must have moved to the wrong place, and they are ready to move again.
Some people never stop repeating cycles like that. You know it. You’ve seen it too.
For the one person who is open to some fresh information, though. To the one person who is tired of the same old thing, I have an answer: Dream Into It: The Roadmap to Freedom. It is a guaranteed way to get what you want.
The most important thing, you see, is to get going in the right direction. Course directions can be made later, but for Pete’s sake, buckle up and get going.
