Prior to my trip Arizona for the Breakthrough to Success live event in the summer of 2014, I had no idea what to expect. Based on the summary of the program I had been given I understood that Jack’s work was life changing, but I didn’t fully understand what that meant for me. Although I was anxious about what the program would entail, I soon realized that joining the Pathways to Success Team and attending the seminar was a great decision.
The most incredible part of the experience is that I didn’t need to attend Breakthrough to Success knowing what I was looking for. Instead, I was led through a bunch of activities and experiences and discovered things about myself that I never knew.
Since my time with Jack I have become more fully aware of all I really learned. I uncovered what I am truly passionate about. I learned how to dream big, how to set goals, and how to succeed in creating a life that I will be honestly content with.
I met amazing people from all around the world and made connections that will last a lifetime. The success principles are geared to individuals of all ages and provided us with the tools for us to become our greatest selves.
The success principles taught me how to have a more positive outlook on my life. At one point, I paused for a moment, stepped back and began to see the limiting factors that were preventing me from being as successful as I could be. I learned that is impossible to do everything you dream of doing if there are unaddressed obstacles standing in your way. And then I learned some tools to overcome those blocks.
I realized it was just as simple as opening up, letting people in and building stronger connections to the people I love. That also allowed me to be more positive.
I discovered that you can also make progress in your own life by making connections to those around you. I have always been an extrovert, however I have learned how to listen better to others and to connect with the people who have a positive effect on my life rather than those who bring me down.
Indeed, the success principles and Breakthrough to Success has definitely had an unforgettable impact on my life!
