Tim Shay was awarded the 2008 Gar Rowbotham Memorial NLP Scholarship to attend the Moden Jedi NLP Mind Mastery Certification July 12-20, in Connecticut. He was deeply moved by being chosen to recieve the scholarship and wrote this letter.
Dear Mark, Scholarship Applicants, & our friends/family that have sent such positive references:
I sincerely thank you. I am honored by you. Seriously, we have all taken a chance on this contest. We have invested time, emotions, thought and shared our stories for the world to see. We all have had great reasons for doing so and we have had times and events in our lives to validate learning NLP and TLT. I am honored to have been a party to such worthy contestants. Not that it was just a contest but more of a communal choosing or induction. Contests have winners and losers. We can all win in this scenario in the long run.
I hope to meet all of you in training and I am confident that we will be good friends. As a friend I would like to add my support to your goals as well. Anything I can do to help any of you achieve your dreams… Anything I can do to help you gain perspective…. Anything I can do to enable you to help yourself and others…. I will do without hesitation.
I would also like to add a more specific Thank you here to Mark and Staff. I am grateful for the opportunity you are affording me and I am certain that we are going to have a great time! I am looking forward to meeting you and as I learn and grow I will certainly reciprocate this act of kindness in the present and future as well. Your actions and choice to teach me does not and will not go unnoticed. You are helping me to help others and that is a noble act in and of itself. In short, I appreciate you and your efforts as a musician, educator and I wish you many successes.
Also, a note of thought about anyone who is “on the fence” deciding whether or not to take training. Do it! You can! Have faith in yourself! Have faith in the people that support you! Have faith in human kind! We all have choice!……..
Mark, I truly believe that your trainings and services are such a tremendous value that people cannot afford not to attend. I have done the research. I have done my homework.
Folks, if you don’t think you have the time; then you need the training. Time lining is about the subjective structure of time (from what I have read). If you don’t feel that you have the time, you are creating the “reality” of not having the time.
We all have the same 24 hours in a day. Don’t we? All time. All possibilities. And what does that say of money? It has been said that “Time is Money” for so long that it is a form of cultural hypnosis now. So learn how to manage your states, time, money and beliefs in 9 days?!?!?! The possibilities are endless! The necessity should be evident!!!
If anyone believes in their limitations about not coming to training; they NEED to come to training.
The only limitations that we have are the ones that we have learned and we can…. and it’s natural…. to have had experiences…. and learnings…. that means that we owe it to ourselves to find our limiting beliefs and behaviors and add more choice to our lives. We can choose excellence. We can chose prosperity. We can choose inner peace.
Thank you again.
