From Panic to Progress

I watched it. My friend poured out his problems to all of us. The initial thought, what really got him going, was a feeling of panic. He took his time explaining it all, what the “issue” was. As he described in detail his pain, I noticed he began to talk in a more positive light. The more he described it, the better it sounded. He was solving his own problem, but didn’t yet realize it.

By the time he got to the end of his story he was actually sounding pretty upbeat. Our responses reflected this. It was easy for us to encourage him, because he laid it out so well. He really took the time to think through the issue, and for us, supporting him was simply a matter of repeating what he had said back to him.

Sometimes getting it said is all it takes. Clarity comes from a certain amount of whittling away at the stuff that seems to be tugging at us, but in reality is no more than fluff when you look at the whole picture.

This is just one example of the wonderful things that are going on in this new world we are all part of. This is a wonderful place where everyone supports you and no one is an outcast. The forum is called Milagro World, and it is the new baby of the famous Pat O’Bryan, of the “UnSeminar” and author of Your Portable Empire. It is open to all, so I encourage you to come join us!
