Studying With Great People Energizes Your Life!

I was about to board a train from London to Bath, England, when I felt an irrepressible impulse to visit the book kiosk on the platform. I expected the ride to take more than an hour and I wanted something that would feed my mind.
Staring right at me was a thick paperback titled, MANAGEMENT. It was the UK edition of Peter F. Drucker’s classic. I had always meant to read the master, in his own words, so this was a moment of serendipity, to be sure.
As I deciphered the tiny print I became enthralled. His ideas gave voice to many of my observations as a business consultant. Inasmuch as I had benefited greatly from studying with other luminaries in my academic career, I was driven to see if Mr. Drucker still taught.
He did, at Claremont Graduate University, which named its graduate school of management after him. I studied directly with the professor for two and one half years, earning my MBA in the process.
I have always contended there is something special about being in the presence of a great master. It goes beyond mere ego gratification Consulting Agreement Template Pdf and idol worship. Until I came across a passage in Wayne Dyer’s book, THE POWER OF INTENTION, I couldn’t account for this dynamic.
Dyer describes his encounter with someone that would change his life, Mother Meera, who gazed into his eyes making him feel so energized he couldn’t sleep.
Reporting that he has had a similar World Health Organization Consultant Rates effect on others, Dyer recalls:
“I’ve been told I’ve had an impact” by “having a meal in a restaurant. I’ve done nothing. They’ve felt impacted by the field of high energy we shared.”
That’s it. Energy that transcended the ordinary made Drucker’s classes into great occasions, pilgrimages of executives coming to drink from his deep well of knowledge.
Find the best people in your field and then do what you must to meet them. If possible, have them teach you.
It will energize and revitalize your life!
