10-A “Knowledge Will not Apply Itself”

  Pretty interesting concept.  Let’s define our terms: Definition of knowledge. 1 a (1) : the fact or condition of knowing something with familiarity gained through experience or association -Merriam Webster Dictionary. Haanel claims it won’t apply itself but it seems, by definition, it already has since we cannot gain it except through experience or association. Here’s a […]

Hopes & Dreams

“Some men see things as they are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were, and ask why not.” -Robert Kennedy *** Why on earth would anyone ever consider signing up for a course online that goes for 26 weeks? and what does anyone really mean by the term ‘self-development?’ This course is […]

Weeks 23 & 24 – Creation

This week’s lesson from Haanel is about the process known as thinking.  Our ability to observe ourselves and then choose what to think separates us from all other known life forms. Yeah, so what? you say.  Well, here’s the deal.  Since we can think whatever we choose to think, we should be able to create […]

Week 7 – “Look the ball all the way into your glove.”

Practice, Practice, Practice Definition of ‘practice’: “repeated exercise in or performance of an activity or skill so as to acquire or maintain proficiency in it” What’s that you say? ‘Stay present.’ Are you kidding? Didn’t you feel the earth shake? The sky fall? Don’t I have to do something? Anything? Yes. Stay present. Stop your […]
