Two women apply for jobs. They look exactly alike. On their applications, they list the same last name, address and telephone number. They were born to the same parents on the same day, same month and same year. Everything is identical. The receptionist says, “You must be twins.” They say, “No”. Now how is that possible? (Take 30 seconds to think about it.)*

The purpose of this presentation is to encourage a re-assessment of your thinking processes and to consider how you might change them in order to accommodate the type of attitude that will encourage and inspire new awareness within yourself. The outcome, of course is the creation of expanded successes in every area of your life.

As unlikely as it may sound, most of us do not take conscious inventory of how our thinking habits and patterns affect the inevitability of a recurring outcome. The focus on this essay is to establish the obvious affects of patterned thinking, to suggest a overview of your particular thinking habits, and to stimulate new thinking.

*(They are two from a set of triplets). Now if the answer was not obvious to you it is, at the least, your invitation to start thinking differently. Go beyond the conventional. Don’t try to legitimize your old stilted thinking. Insist on training your mind to go beyond the usual and seek out the response that defies your traditional rationalization. You are not obligated to do anything with it. But it is imperative that you determine to stretch your imagination and dare to go beyond the limited reasoning you have used to keep you stranded in the confines of a life that is currently less than totally satisfying.

IBSEN: “The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That is one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent wo/man can help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population – the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it’s the fools, no matter where you go in the world, it’s the fools that form the overwhelming majority”.

ANTHONY ROBBINS: “In life, you need either inspiration or desperation”.

BONAPARTE: “Over-preparation is the foe of inspiration”.

HENRY MILLER: “ Every person has their own destiny; the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it no matter where it leads”.

DENNIS WAITLEY: “Success in life comes not from holding a good hand, but in playing a poor hand well”.
