I know you’re scared. I was too.
You think it must be a scam. That did cross my mind too.
You’re worried you might fail. Yep. Me too.
You are afraid of the ‘pay it forward’, because you’re broke, or in debt, or just don’t trust that this isn’t just another way to get you to buy something. I get you.
You’re worried it’s just a religious thing, or not religious enough, or you’re going to get pressured or coerced to do something you don’t want to do. I didn’t actually write about that, but those things did cross my mind as well. You see, I was a Christian lay minister for 14 years, but I was also a survivor of some pretty nasty spiritual mind control stuff. So I get leery of anyone telling me they got ‘the truth’ about something.
But these people aren’t interested in telling you ‘the truth’. They’re interested in helping you find YOUR truth. Mark’s favorite saying is “the best influence is NO influence”. I didn’t find anything in the course which went against any religion, yet it certainly wasn’t shoving any religion down my throat. Most people from a religious background find that this course helps them understand the basis behind their religion so much more. I know it did with me.
If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I signed up to be a Guide for this year’s course. We’ve been doing weekly classes to help us guide you through the course. I guess I’ll get 15 people to work with.
They told us we were going to get a ‘final exam’ a few weeks ago, and I think this last Sunday was it: they sent us a bunch of sample homework assignments to look over and revise, to see if we were understanding what to do to help you.
We got one where the guy was basically in despair. There was one phrase in everything he wrote which could even be construed as slightly positive. It was heartbreaking.
So I thought, this guy’s pretty brave. Not many men would just spill like that. Then I thought, okay, let’s take that one positive phrase, encourage him on that, and see where we can take it.
Later, my staff member Dayna (we’re supervised until they are dead sure we know what we’re doing, which is wonderful) said I did good. And then she said those were real people’s first tries at finding their purpose.
Wow, I thought. I asked “what happened to that guy? Did he finish the course?”
She said, “He’s one of the guides”.
Now, you can’t be a guide unless you:
- finish the whole course
- actually are using the course (not just checking the boxes), which is easy to see in what’s going on in the person’s life: they are manifesting their dreams, making a difference in the world around them, their families, everything
- take the guides training and pass that
I was blown away. I tell you this to say that no matter how bad off you are, no matter how badly in debt you are, no matter how awful you feel about yourself, this will help you, assuming you do the work.
If you’re like most people and are scared to death, it’s okay. The difference between those who stay being scared and never get what they want and those who do get what they want is one thing: action. Go here, leave your email (a good one: it’s how they track scholarships), watch the videos and the Q&A session, and get in the course. They are closing it Monday night, and you need some time to get the things together you need in order to fill out the application.
Don’t wait. I don’t want you to be regretting it for the whole rest of the year that you didn’t do what you needed to do now.
Looking forward to seeing what you do on your own journey.
