If you are like most people at some time in their life you have or you will enter a rut in life. Sometimes this rut is referred to as the mid-life crisis, some times it is called the prodigal period, but whatever it is called the same basic ingredients exist. They are questioning the meaning and direction of your life and evaluating whether or not you should make changes (often major) and how you should go about doing them. Often it is brought on by a feeling of discontentment in the place that they are in life compared to where they wanted to be. In short they feel that they are not achieving the success that they can and want to change that. I want to suggest that these people try out (or at least look into) a success program.
What is a success program? Well it can be a lot of different things really. They range in value and quality just like anything else and it is good to keep in mind that you often pay for what you get. What the essence of the program should be is how to change whatever you are doing to adjust your trajectory in order to achieve the things that you are setting out to do. This mainly has to do with adjusting your thinking.
These programs are often a conference in a nice (often exotic) location that allows people to break away from whatever might be holding them back in their home place and invigorates them for success. After all if a success program didn’t get people “up” for success then it really couldn’t be called successful could it? Any way there is often a guest speaker most of the time someone with two things. One a gift for motivation which requires a certain personality that is supposed to be infectious and persuasive. And two a story of the time in their life when they went through a similar phase and how they got out of it. They are often very successful and can prove it with real life dollars and cents figures that convince people they are just a bunch of fluff.
There often are books at these events that allow people to take the message home to ponder it and there are many times different “specialty” workshops that allow people to hone in on their area of expertise or interest. Again the major goal of a success program is to make people change their way of thinking that allows them to change the course of their future. The mind is a powerful thing and if you can get it bent on success rather than futility, you have done a wonderful and potentially life altering thing for them!
