Think & Grow Rich Lessons

I was driving through the parking lot of the local Winn Dixie grocery store the day before yesterday and there is an adjoining strip mall connected to that parking lot with a clearly marked stop sign for people entering it. It’s just that a lot of people decide to ignore it like the woman that pulled right out in front of me in a Mini Cooper. I am aware of that fact and always keep an eye open for it. That was probably in no way life threatening but still accidents are always an inconvenience. 


I have had however many instances just like that except they could've been a lot worse over the years that I've been driving a truck and all the US and most of Canada and I give credit to my sixth sense along with awareness and defensive driving to keep my out of trouble. I have come out of blind curves while carving them up on two wheels to encounter a dead stop but even though i’m aware I know there is some risk involved when having fun like that. And awareness and defensive driving are out the window at that point. That’s when the gut feeling that something “just wasn’t right” warned my in the nick of time. 


I really do believe that I have had a guardian angel watching over me all my life because when I look back on it I can see that I should have probably been gone before I got out of my 20’s.


Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for having that gut feeling that MFF would be a success despite all the negative feedback from all the other people he consulted with that told him that would never work and standing by the idea anyway and kicking them to the curb. And thank to my friends and mastermind partners for sharing your brilliance with me weekly!
