Dream Catching: A Sucessful Enviroment

As we learned in our last section the environment you were brought up in is incredibly important to catching your dream and becoming successful. Your childhood environment creates your current enviroment. An environment can literally make or break someone. The environment you grew up in has shaped who you are today. If you want to start living a better life you need to reflect on your childhood environment.

Barbara Sher, will be our guide for the rest of this section and will help us along in our quest for success. Very few people are better at self-improvement than Barbara is and her writing actually jumps out off the page and speaks directly to you.

First Sher wants us to ask ourselves some important questions:

"Were you treated as though you had a unique kind of genius that was loved and respected?

Were you told you could do and be anything you wanted-and that you'd be loved and admired no matter what it was?

Were you given real help and encouragement in finding out what you wanted to do-and how to do it? Do you blame yourself in not becoming all they said you could become?

Were you encouraged to explore all your talents and interests even if they changed from day to day?

Were you allowed to complain when the going got rough and given sympathy instead of being told to quit?

Were you bailed out when you got into trouble without reproach?

Were you surrounded by winners were pleased when you won?" (It could be anyone who was happy to see you succeed)

If you answered “yes” to all of these not only is Barbara Sher jealous but also so am I. If you answered “no” to some or most, think about how your life would be different if you answered yes. Where might you be today, who might you have been?

Don’t be dismayed because it’s never too late to bet the person you might have been. We'll have more on that tomorrow.
