Decades back I grew to become immersed in the Rich Father Very poor Dad teachings. I examine each and every one of his textbooks, went to numerous of his seminars, and even acquired his Cashflow board game.
One particular of his teachings that trapped in my brain was a tale about focusing on what you want and exactly where you want to go. Several of you will recognize this as the Legislation of Attraction basics. The illustration he gave was mastering how to drive a race auto.
He gave his spouse an abnormal present for her birthday one particular yr... race car driving lessons. Whilst this most likely isn't a thing she was dying to acquire as her birthday current, the lessons proved to be a lot more valuable in techniques she could never have imagined.
As she was understanding how to drive very quickly all around an oval monitor, she repeatedly came close to crashing into the concrete retaining wall as she entered the first corner. After a few or 4 moments, her instructor who was sitting down following to her in the passenger seat said, "If you want to avoid hitting the retaining wall, DO NOT look at it. As a substitute appear in the other direction in which you want to go - the inside lane of the track."
