I asked the bell captain to call a cab for me to get to the train station for my trip to Ottawa. He replied that, with all the freezing snow Montreal was enjoying that morning, a cab would take 45 minutes to arrive! Shock and awe what was I to do? I had meetings and a seminar lined up in Ottawa carefully planned down to the last minute. I couldnt afford to miss that train! Then I realized that the bell captain was still there, talking. He was saying, But, Mr. Elliott, why not take the underground to the train station? Its right around the corner, here. In only twenty minutes I was at the station via the underground, saved money on the cab and enjoyed a great, relaxing train ride to Ottawa.
When he walked into the huge seminar venue in the Toronto hotel, he seemed pretty professional and successful Well dressed and groomed, poised, aware. He handed me his business card and I was impressed. Thirty minutes into my seminar, I asked the audience, How many of you think this looks Too good to be true? and the same man put up his hand. Shock and awe! It was hard to believe that this sophisticated businessman was, in fact, seriously handicapped by his mental conditioning. We all are. How many wonderful opportunities have we all missed, because our conditioning got in the way? We all have mental programming that hampers and restricts us.
The same goes for technology I searched for YEARS to find a way to record sound bytes on my computer at home and then to e-mail them. It only took one e-mail from Member Andrew Cavanagh in Australia, and within ten minutes I had the solution, which has been working great ever since. We dont have money problems, we have thinking problems. And the same goes for everything else. We already have whatever we want and need its all in the way we think. Understanding that we have mental blocks is the first step on the road to overcoming all obstacles on our way to success.
Other people know things that we dont know. They have different perspectives and they know how to get to the train station. The fastest way I have discovered to getting over, under and around mental blocks is by associating with a wide variety of Eagles through our DollarMakers Joint Venture Forum. Hundreds of ethical people around the world with a Joint Venture Mindset are available to help me to succeed in a win/win way. They have different frames of reference, experience, skills, connections, access and resources that are readily available. We help each other to see through the mental blocks and solve problems. Together, we can do amazing things. For more information on the Forum, I invite you to visit www.JVWisdom.com.
