I’ve been following Allan Pease for over 20 years reading his books and listening to his CDs. I have had the privilege of speaking to him for over three times. He shares with me his very candid story of how he experienced cancer more than once and his new book will be departure from the usual.
“The Keys: How To Get Everything You Want In Life” his soon-to-be-released book talks about his depression despite being a motivational speaker. One of his strategies of overcoming stresses is to put a time limit on your problems. Give some time to think about it and then STOP thinking about it after giving it a deadline. I must admit I tend to dwell on a problem for ages.
With 2015 around the corner, a lot of people would be setting goals. He said when making goals, decide what you want and the how (or the answers) will appear before you. We usually get crippled not even knowing what to do.
Reading his blog, he discusses why some people don’t learn from their mistakes. “Making a bad choice doesn’t mean you are stupid. The consequences of a poor choice is life’s way of telling you needed to learn a life lesson. If you make the same poor choice a second time, then life shows you again that you still haven’t learned your lesson. If you continue to make the same mistake repeatedly, then you have an issue such as self-sabotaging and need advice from a professional counselor. Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.”
