My name is Gary John Bishop. I'm a personal development expert and an author. I want to start today by telling you just a little bit about myself, and then I'm going to tell you what you're going to get out of participating in this course. If you'll notice, I've got a little bit of an accent. I'm originally from Scotland, but I've lived in the United States for twenty-something years. My field of expertise is in personal development. That is, What does it take to have a human being break through their already existing self constraints? And in this course, I'm going to lay out for you the ways in which you can cause real breakthroughs for yourself, and your self expression, and your effectiveness, and your ability to produce outstanding results in your life. But first off, let me tell you about the structure of this course. So, there's ten sessions. And in each of the sessions, I'm going to be giving you a little nugget of information that I want you to think about. I want you to really...
give some real thinking to. You see, that's not something we typically do. When I say, real thinking, as human beings, what we mostly do is compare what information is being given to something we already know. And that really is the trick of participating in this particular program, is you got to keep setting that apart, and you gotta keep listening to what I'm saying for what it is. So, if you're someone who has struggled with certain areas of your life, so if you've struggled with your finances, or if you've struggled with relationships, or if you've struggled with your body, and your health, and your wellbeing. If you've struggled with yourself, like self-confidence, or doubting yourself in those critical moments of life, when you really wanna step out there and make new things happen. Whatever your thing is, I promise you, you will find real value in this program. Now I also wanna tell you what this course is not. This course isn't about psychology. It's not about neuroscience. It's not about the behavioral sciences. In fact, our approach in this course is very much based on a philosophical point of view. In particular, ontology, and a little bit of existentialism in there, just to keep you on your toes. Now this last part is really about you, and the way that you participate in the course. You see, from my perspective, whenever I teach people something new, what's really important for the person who's observing, is to notice the way that you're interacting with it. So were there parts of it where you're being dismissive? Are there parts of it where you're being confused? Here's what you'll notice, those states for you, aren't new. Now I'm gonna make you a promise. If you stick with each of the lessons, if you follow it all the way through to the end, and I know for some of you that's a big deal, following something through to the end. Raise your hand if you're one of the world's great starters of things, but not so much a great finisher. Okay, put your hand down. Especially if you're in a coffee shop. People are watching you right now. So the point I'm making here is, that if you stay all the way through to the end with us, you will discover something new about yourself. You'll see something that you hadn't seen before. The seeing of which will open up new pathways for you to act and produce new results in your life. I'll see you in the next session.
