TO MASTER LIFE
WHAT TO DO AND IN WHAT ORDER
FOOTBALL FIELD OF LIFE
INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PROCEED WITH THE PROGRAM
You will go at each of these until you reach stage I only (approximately 80% proficiency), later returning to refine further but getting alot of results from Stage I.
I have not linked the pieces yet, so you'll have to use the search engine to access any topic. I have, however, added "paths" that will accomplish all these, so I would recommend that you follow these. Pick your paths listed in The Paths, but I recommend that you also strongly read and implement The Only Sure Path To A Great Life.
As you study and learn these by taking time from your life to invest in your life, while living life in the hours (say 23 per day) left over, you will find that life is richer and more fulfilling than it ever was before, with that extra hour. The reward and the elevating of your life comes as you do the process, not at the end!
Yes, it looks long, but the pieces are direct and to the point, so that you learn relatively more quickly, and find that the time seems not to be long at all, especially as you harvest your rewards from what you've learned!!!!!
