I’m doing an event this weekend in Boras, Sweden. Walking around town beforehand, I met a couple who came from Iceland to attend. Because they’re new on the success journey and money is tight, they took a budget flight to Oslo, then rode two buses all day to get here. They were brimming with excitement and couldn’t wait to learn how to become more successful.
There are more than 1,000 people here, great energy, and they’re passionate about success. Like many of the events I do around the world, some people see me as a saint, sage, or savior. Or I can read the comments on my YouTube channel and find others who think I’m a charlatan, chump, or arrogant jerk.
So who’s right?
They all are. Because they’ll receive what they come prepared to receive. And that’s true for every speaker you hear, book you read, or CD you listen to. Come looking for wisdom and you’ll find it. Expect to receive nothing and that’s likely what you’ll get.
The default setting you approach life with determines what you’ll receive. So what are you expecting?
