No. 119 HOW TO HAVE YOUR DESIRES FULFILLED MORE CONSISTENTLY (HS RM C-304)--**THIS CLASS WAS CANCELLED DUE TO AN INSTRUCTOR CONFLICT.**
Monday, September 18th
7:00-9:00 pM (8-weeks)
INSTRUCTOR: Dr. John Mazzola
R $70; NR $75; GC $65
Many people spend many years of their lives wanting to accomplish something. Some people call it a wish, in which they depend mainly on themselves in order to achieve an objective. Others call it a prayer, in order to depend on someone else to help them achieve their objective. And still others call it a dream, in which they really don't expect to achieve an objective, but it sure would be wonderful if they could. Happiness is having dreams, but success is making those dreams come true. So whether it's a wish, or whether it's a prayer, or whether it's a dream, you still want to get some closure and achieve your objective.

Unfortunately there are four mistakes that we make, through no one's fault, that prevent us from achieving whatever were trying to achieve in which ever manner we approach it. These are the specific four mistakes:

First, we are simply not prepared to achieve what we want to achieve. Either we don't have the necessary qualifications even to be considered for that opportunity, or we don't understand the difference between a mere symptom and an actual problem. We spend too much of our time reacting to the symptom instead of the problem. A person may spend years hoping to be able to deal with loneliness because of the loss of a loved one, but they just don't realize that loneliness is just a symptom. The real problem is fair of rejection, to go out and find someone else. So they have to eliminate that problem. We help them do that.

The second mistake we make is we don't realize that everyone has a free will, to act any way they want to. If we don't overcome and deal with that free will, the other person may stop us cold in our tracks, and prevent us from achieving our objective. A classic example is a person either hopes for, or prays for, or wishes to have a job, they have no idea how to cope with the person interviewing them. That person interviewing them has a mental picture of what they're looking for, and if we don't find and then satisfy the other person's mental picture, they will exercise their free will to stop us cold and prevent us from achieving what we want to accomplish. This is true for a job, a marriage, a school classroom situation, or anything else where you have to interact with someone else. We don't understand the free will and the mental picture that one uses as a measurement of whether they want to exert their free will in our favor or against us. This program will help you successfully deal with this issue also.

The third mistake is that we either hope for something, or pray for something, or wish for something, but don't take any action to help ourselves achieve it. It's not just a wish, but again happiness is having dreams, but success is going out and making those dreams come true. Here, we have to cope with our self-image or level of self-confidence, because if that is low, our achievement will be in the same level. This program will help improve one’s level of self- image and self -confidence, and significantly improve one’s attitude for success.

The fourth mistake we make is that we can only be run by one emotion at a time, and if our fear is stronger than our desire, then we will be paralyzed by that fear. The definition of a hero is someone who moves on in the face of fear, while the definition of someone who is not a hero is a person who is literally paralyzed by that fear, regardless of their skill level, their strength, or their level of knowledge. Fear will always be there, so we have to learn to overcome our fears, whether it is fear of rejection, fear of failure, or fear of commitment. This program will help you win out over fear too.

This program, which will last eight weeks, two hours per weekly session, will provide solutions for all four of those above-mentioned problem areas. The odds are overwhelming that if you attend each of the eight two hour classes, you will not be the same person you were in level of confidence and capability to deal with these issues before you started this program.
