okay let’s do the workshop now and
setting goals developing a good plan for
the next 10 years especially some of the
things you want to accomplish that our
dreams pull us through our objectives
sustain us get us up early keep us up
late or drive us to do the disciplines
read the books take the classes study
whatever is necessary if the dreams are
strong enough and the purpose is strong
enough we will pay the price then after
we’ve accomplished here’s what you’ll
say small price to pay okay so let’s go
to work entitle this part of it now
workshop and under the workshop I’m
going to ask a series of questions and
it’s gonna serve as a model so that you
can teach this to your children you can
teach it in classes you can teach it
anywhere and I’m gonna give to you the
question first and then give you time to
work the exercise okay so you jot down
the question and then the work the
exercise and if for lack of time we have
to cut you working nexor sighs a little
bit short it’s something you can
continue you know after you’ve gotten
home or whatever you can continue doing
the exercise but I want to make sure I
get through it all so that you have this
format to follow on setting goals
because I think it’s so valuable okay
under the workshop now here’s the first
question what five things have you
already accomplished that you’re proud
of let’s take some credit before we go
to work on the future we’ve accomplished
some things in the past let’s give
ourselves credit for that when you’re
working with kids this is important what
five things have you already
accomplished that you’re proud of so I
want you to make a note of that question
and then I want you to do the exercise
make a list of five things that you can
think of that you’ve already
and we’ve probably got some gold medal
winners and you know no telling who
we’ve got in the audience I did a tour
of Australia once with mark Tewksbury
gold medal winner and I’m sure under
this exercise he would have put that on
his list won the gold medal in Barcelona
I also did that tour with David Chilton
who wrote the book the wealthy barber if
you haven’t got it you got to get it
might add it to Charlie’s list the
wealthy barber by David Chilton it

thousand sixty thousand six hundred
thousand and David you to say you know

Rowland could push in the Bible so list
five things that you’re that you’ve
already accomplished that you’re proud
of I graduated third in my high school
class I was really proud of that took a
lot of hard work now if there’s only
three it’s not that great we got that
