Please review email 14.
If you have been following along and have participated fully in this
sequential series, congratulations, you have distinguished yourself from
the masses. You will have already begun to take some small, but
important steps towards closing the GAP between where you are now and
where you want to be.
You may find it interesting to know that less then 40% of newsletter
subscribers make a consistent effort to open and review the sequential
emails sent. Of those 40% only 5% take the time to actively participate (see email 12).
I have suggested that we should never assume that our ways of being are
set in stone. Regardless of innate preferences and social programming,
and despite past experiences and current circumstances, we can influence
our subconscious mind to accept change.
However, creating lasting change requires a willingness to actively engage.
Remember, in email 8,
I suggested that one of the reasons we are where we are at in life, is
because we have been exposed to unhealthy influences and received

Remember, this series is designed to offer you, the subscriber, the
information you need to gain more awareness and a better understanding
about why you think, feel, and behave as you do.
The information offered supports your understanding of the dynamic
interplay between original potential and social programming. This
information sets the foundation for change.
With this knowledge, and the active participation of truly working with
it, we can begin to make inroads and create positive new changes.
Change requires more then a passive passing interest in information. We
must review it, work with it, play with, try it on for size, question it
and find ways to begin to assimilate it.
Can you imagine investing in a new set of tires for your car and then
leaving those tires sitting in the corner of your garage, unused? It
wouldn’t make a lot of sense, would it? Subscribing to this newsletter
and not actively engaging it makes no sense either.
So, once again, I encourage you to go back and review the series. Makes
notes, answer the questions, and actively participate. Decide to place
yourself alongside the 2% of subscribers who have decided to
consistently make use of the information being offered. As I said early
on, stick with me, consider what is being offered and over time, you can
begin to close the GAP between where you are and where you want to be.
