Wealth Propulsion Intensive Seminar - Reflections

Over the last weekend from Friday night at 6:00pm until Sunday night at 10:00pm I along with a few hundred others spent time in Brisbane with Christopher Howard and his Team. The seminar topics addressed a range of aspects of our life conditioning that were hindering our ability to be the person that we were meant to be. In backing this up, we also worked our way through a number of exercises that were geared to assist us to leave behind our baggage, which for some of us we had carried with us for more years than we would wish to acknowledge, without necessarily recognising that it was indeed baggage.

Topics covered were from a number of the courses on offer, thereby giving us a small window in which to look at the benefit of taking each of those courses in full.

The weekend was highly charged with both enthusiasm and noise. Mind you there were also the quieter times as we wrote down responses to various items of material which were then usually shared or role played with others in groups of 3 or 4, throughout the day.

After the breaks, often a game of 'Fact or Crap' was played, and those chosen at random to play were given the opportunity to win valuable prizes. There were also several 'give away' promotional spots, where again the items handed out were of significant value.

As both Chris and Johnny, the two presenters wanted to ensure that we in no way were short changed, the finishing times went out the door so to speak. With this in mind I for one would encourage all those thinking of attending to have a bottle of water and perhaps some light refreshments with them, to ensure that they were able to be sustained physically, as in a good way mentally and emotionally you were constantly being stretched.

All in all, especially for one who was able to attend free, through logging onto the website listed below I found that the time spent was very educational and life enriching.

If I was wearing a hat I would raise it to Chris and the Team for a fantastic weekend.

The One Thousand Legged Worm Song! -( Author to remain unknown)

The ‘One Thousand Legged Worm ‘ song.

Said a Thousand Legged Worm,
As he gave a little squirm,
Have you seen a leg of mine?
If it can’t be found ,
I will have to hop around,
On my Nine Hundred and Ninety Nine.
Hop around…hop around,
Hop around…hop around,
Have you seen a leg of mine?
If it can’t be found ,
I will have to hop around ,
On my Nine Hundred and Ninety,
Nine Hundred and Ninety,
Nine Hundred and Ninety Nine!!!

As soon as we come to the ‘Hop around’ part, that is when we all start
to hop around in a big ‘Worm Line’ as all our feet make up the 999!!

This is aimed at the Australian voters

This one is a little different....Two Different Versions....Two Different Morals

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

Channels 7, 9 and 10,the ABC and SBS show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.

Australia is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green.'

Acorn stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where the news stations film the group singing, 'We shall overcome.' Cardinal George Pell then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper's sake.

Prime Minister Gillard condemns the ant and blames John Howard, Robert Menzies, Capt James Cook, and the Pope for the grasshopper's plight.

Bob Brown exclaims in an interview on Today Tonight that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and calls for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, Labor in conjunction with the Greens draft the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood.

Tony Abbot then wins the 2010 election removes taxes on big business and mining increases taxes on small business the ants and grasshoppers to make up the shortfall hires the spiders to control any dissenters.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2010.

A lesson from an older generation!

Learn from your elders

A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long flight.

The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on them easy.

So the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play a fun game.

The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists saying that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5. Then you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500, he says. This catches the senior's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.

The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?'

The senior doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.

Now it's the senior's turn. He asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?'

The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net.

He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up.

He wakes the senior and hands him $500. The senior pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'

The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.

Thank you to the person who sent me this. I forgot to remember your name in all of the excitement!
