Since I am pretty active on this site, i get a lot of PMs. I feel very honored that people will approach me and say things that they don't dare say in the open forums. And I reply with what my heart says and not what is necessarily considered "politically correct". (Of course, those of you who have been here for a while are not surprised at that! It has gotten me in trouble a few times!)
Yes, a lot of people were disappointed over the fact that joining the IE was just not feasible for them right now. I am one of those people that just did not feel that I could budget it at this time.
One of the PMs I received said to me, " They are always asking for money for stuff here, I can barely get by now. I think Dean has just gotten so rich that he has forgotten where he came from."
I can remember when I first came here and various programs were offered and I had to pass on them. Just no money. I sometimes wondered the same thing.
That was because like so many of us, I had fallen for guru after guru making their promises, taking my money and then letting me down again and again. We get so that we are afraid to believe.
I joined DG.com a little over two years ago and I started participating and studying and reading and connecting and I knew that things REALLY were different here. I developed very strong friendships. People who honestly and truly ARE closer than my blood family. And the longer I was here, the more I let myself believe!
This is a very hard and frustrating business. People come and go here so fast it is like a revolving door on crack! The business is simple. But not easy. You will hear this over and over because it is the truest true.
It is so easy to lose your motivation.
So here is my honest to goodness assessment of Dean. He does every single drop of this because HE HAS NOT FORGOTTEN!!!! They say an elephant never forgets!!! Whoever said that NEVER MET DEAN!
He knows down to the tips of his toes (yes, in his very expensive tennis shoes) that any of us can do it! But that's the whole dogma! We have to DO IT!
He knows how easy it is to get frustrated and give up and for us to never be able to break out of the oppressive struggles that many of us have day to day. And he wants better than that for YOU and for ME!
So he comes up with cool stuff to help us. To get us excited! To teach us and keep us believing in ourselves. Because when it comes down to it, that's who we really have to believe in, isn't it? We have to believe that WE are the ones who can do it!
And if you are really objective about this, How much did you pay to join this site? Of course, after you join, there is that BIG monthly fee... To ask questions and get answers from coaches and other people here who are doing lots of deals? The tickets for those videos from Dean every week get pretty expensive, too.
But, of course, it did cost you $19.95 for one of his books and he really insulted you by giving you the second one free!
Instead of resenting the fact that we couldn't join the "new club", I say let's celebrate the fact that we are a HUGE part of this family and we will never be left behind unless we decide to be!
As for me, I am using all these incredible tools and the knowledge that I have been blessed to receive here and I am gonna BUST IT!
And I need all my relatives here to charge with me!!!
From my heart!
