Self Transformation: Where Is My ON Switch?!
“When I saw the suspect,” said Jasper Schuringa to CNN, “that he was getting on fire, I freaked, of course. And without any hesitation I just jumped over all the seats. And I jumped to the suspect. I was thinking like, he’s trying to blow up the plane.”
You’ve heard of him by now – hero Jasper Schuringa threw himself on the terrorist who was trying to blow up Northwest Airlines Flight 253, grabbed the bomb out of his hands and held him while other people put the fire out with blankets and fire extinguishers.
First, let me say, my gratitude and admiration know no bounds. I can only hope that I would have that kind of courage in a similar situation. Actually, my greater hope is I’ll never have to face a similar situation, but if I did, I’d want to react like Jasper Schuringa.
You might be wondering why I’m writing about Jasper Schuringa in a blog post about self transformation. His heroism is obviously a great example to us, but, besides that, he serves as a terrific model of the difference between living by Core Desires versus living by goal-setting, affirmations, and (the dreaded) New Year’s Resolutions.
This is the kind of intensity that I want for you in your life! Hopefully you’ll never come face to face with a terrorist. But you are face to face with time, mediocrity, and unrealized hopes. It’s time to unleash the Conquering Force in you to find the self transformation that will change your life forever. How?
First, answer these two questions:
- Are you smart enough to learn what someone is willing to teach you?
- Do you believe that the information that you need to know to achieve the success you want already exists somewhere in a book, class, CD, coach or minister or course of some kind?
Let me make this easy for you: the answer to both questions is
Mark Twain once said, “I can teach anybody how to get what they want out of life. The problem is that I can’t find anybody who can tell me what they want.”
Can you have what you want out of life?
Let’s say it again:
Do you know how to get it?
My friend, it’s time to learn.
