Many people have opinions, but do they have the results you are looking for?

Gary's Philosophy

As our life goes around, the wheel of life contains many spokes. Envision your family, your finances, your recreation, your leadership personally and professionally, your spiritual component, your relationships, your health and wellness, and your freedoms all as spokes on the wheel of life. Most people today struggle in one or more of these areas.

When the spokes of the wheel are out of balance, life becomes a bumpy, bumpy road. So why do so many people struggle? It isn’t that people aren’t trying, it is simply a lack of correct information. It isn’t that people don’t know, it is that so much of what they know just isn’t so. We live in a conceptual age, an age of instant information. Unfortunately, most of the information is not accurate or helpful.

Most of what we believe is simply because we’ve heard it over and over again, and not because it is right or “truthful” information. Think back ten years ago…how many people believed the value of their home would always go up? Remember? We all know now, that housing values don’t always go up. Unfortunately, many people learned from their own personal experience.

Did you know that experience is not the best teacher? Someone else’s experience is. If two brothers stand near a hot stove and one touches the stove, who got burned? Obviously, the one that touched the stove. Who learned a lesson? Hopefully both brothers did. So how do we get truthful information?

We have to get it from the people that have the results we’re looking. From whom do you think it would be better to get financial advice? Your neighbor that has been bankrupt twice or a debt free multimillionaire? You get the point.

Now, even when you find people with the results you are looking for, they don't usually have incentive to share everything they know with you. For example, if you worked in an autobody shop, the owner probably would want you to be great at doing body work, but not really want you to know how the business ran. In other words, he isn't looking to teach you everything he knows so that he trains his new competetion. Make sense? He is only incentivized to teach you enough to be a good employee, but not a capable business owner.

I personally have been able to find and implement life changing information from credible sources in all areas of life. Through this, I have committed myself to a life time of personal-growth and "self- directed education". If you're looking to make real change in one or more areas of life, contact me and lets get you started on your journey.
