Words of Wisdom

May 4, 2009

Well. it has been awhile since I last had a chance to write, so I figured, now is as good a time as any to catch up, where we last left off.

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to a seminar from Karl Pilsl. This gentlemen is a business journalist, and has spent almost half of his life living and reasearching  businesses in the United States. He then takes the information he has gathered and applies it to helping people  in reaching their goals.  He takes the role of being someone who speaks to your heart and not a motivational preacher. He also says he is here to tell you what you need to know, not what you want to hear! I had the pleasure of meeting Karl, and his wife Monika, last October in St. Gallen for the first time. This man is 61 years old and says he is at  the halftime stage in his life! Not only does he have an incredible talent for researching, he also has a divine wisdom of conveying the information to normal every day people. The power and drive which he has is rarely seen in most people, let alone at this age. He is highly motivating and extremely attractive,  using  short stories and solid fundamental thinking, he is capable of waking even the biggest sleeping giant within!

There are numerous stories he delivers to get the point across, and while  everything is in German, I have decided to take the time and translate, as best I can, what this gentlemen has taught me. Not only does Karl deliver a remarkable message, but he is actively promoting his courses and informative cds. Karl even takes the time to send a weekly newsletter to anyone interested in improving their situation in life!

This week he has reminded us to think of a stamp, a stamp does not give up until it has completed it’s mission, getting the letter to it’s recipient. It doesn’t say well, I have done this for awhile and gotten no results, so I will jump off this letter and look for something better, no it stays until the job is done. Unfortunately, people do not usually exercise this vital character quality. We all have our calling in life, no matter how large or how small, it is our mission, what we came here to do, it is so easy, just be yourself! No one can do a better job at this than you.  Most people will never reach their full potential while they simply give up too easy. Everyone is looking for a quick fix, and when it doesn’t happen right away they give up and start something new. They overestimate what results they may have in the short term, and underestimate what results they could have reached in the long term, if they didn’t give up so easily.

He goes on to explain that the greatest success stories known to mankind, were always accomplished by visionary people, who not only were in it for the long term, but had a determination that enabled all of their innate powers to overcome all hurdles they possibly could have or did encounter along the journey.

Today there  is no scarcity on the number of business opurtunities available, no limits on the options one has to earn money. But what is rare and becoming almost extinct is the will power and determination to stick with your project/business  long enough to harvest the fruits of your labours. He asks everyone to think long and hard about what you want to do with your life. What burns in your heart? What are  your passions? Make a decision and stick to your guns! With the fire in your heart coupled with determined action every individual will reach his or her goals!
