Notable Quotable:: If you have no major purpose, you are drifting toward certain failure. - Napoleon Hill (Best-selling author of “Think and Grow Rich”)
-Now this next pillar you talked about is self-control. Give me an example what you mean by self-control.
-It means that, you know, it feeds the same victory of I don't control you. I had better control me. Because if I don't control you, and I don't control me, I'm out of control.
-I see this a lot. I've been business consulting for years. And I'll be talking to, say I have one of my clients would be a doctor. Another client maybe is somebody who owns a bakery. Someone else is a landscaper.
And I noticed that two out of three, let's say, are really out of control. Like they have no idea where they're going to be. They don't really have a good boundaries in their life. They don't know their schedule. They don't know passwords to things. They don't know where they're supposed to be. They don't have a pro forma for their business. And they're kind of out of control. And they're just--
-And then they're reacting. And then they're freaking out at everyone. And I see it all the time.
-And that might-- I don't know if that's common to non-business owners. I fellowship mostly with business owners who I've done consulting with. Do you see this common in non-business owners, too? Or is this everybody?
-Oh yeah. This is not an uncommon parental model.
-Yeah. Where parents are just reacting, and there is no sense of controlling themselves towards a goal. It's really about trying to control the environment and make children do stuff and be nice to each other and do their homework and eat their stuff and-- You know, you exert so much energy trying to get other people to do stuff, when you can change an entire environment by letting other people know what you're going to be doing.
