“Employ your time in improving yourself by other men’s writings so that you shall come easily by what others have labored hard for” Socrates
Socrates was an incredible man, his teachings of philosophy are still studied today. If you have taken the time to review the History of Personal Development page you will know a little bit about him. His teachings of course were passed on to Plato, who’s teachings were passed on to Aristotle. One fact about Aristotle you may not be aware of is the fact that he actually passed these philosophies on to Alexander the Great. That’s quite a lineage.
The reason I mention this is because there are very few men who truly understood teaching the concept of the quote above quite as well as the author, his teachings were effectively passed on to some pretty noteworthy people.
Today we have the ability to learn from some pretty noteworthy people as well. The principles which were identified thousands of years ago are still very much relevant today. These principles were not invented by the great leaders mentioned above and others you are probably aware of, the principles of self advancement have always been there. It is important to understand that these are NOT manmade, they were developed by a much higher power. This, along with self evident results, are the reason why the principles of personal development simply cannot be argued.
My goal and my purpose over the coming months and years is to share the principles of self betterment with you. As often and as well as I can. As many of you are aware I recently formed a joint venture with world renowned personal development expert, author and philosopher Bob Proctor.
I realized after 20 years of studying hundreds of books, seminars, webinars, CDs and DVDs all on the topic of personal improvement, that I was only really fulfilled when I was helping others grow more intellectually aware. I had always thought about how I would love to help others grow for a living but, I never really thought of it was going to be a reality for me. I especially didn’t think I would be in business with such an amazing man. It’s pretty neat how things happen when you set your mind to them.
There is a key however to “improving yourself by other men’s writings” as Socrates puts it and that key is based in simplicity. As I was considering making a career in helping others become aware of what I had become aware of, there were certain things that I was looking for. Obviously, being a serial entrepreneur, I had looked at the possibility of investing in and implementing a learning system myself, while this could be done, at the time I found a much more efficient option. That option was to reach out to and form a partnership with Bob Proctor. There were a number of reasons why this decision was made, however the most important reason to mention here is SIMPLICITY. Now, I’m not saying that I was seeking the simple way to accomplish this, I was seeking the best platform where the principles of personal development can be shared with the widest group of participants therefore sharing the philosophy of success with as many people as possible.
The key to fully understanding the cerebral side of personal success is that the information must be teachable in order to be learnable. This is Bob’s secret to success and therefore my success, which I do hope will also evolve into your success, for many it already has! That is the goal and the very reason why we are conversing.
The Learning Systems organized by Bob Proctor such as The Success Puzzle, Mission in Commission, Goal Achiever, The Art of Thinking, You Were Born Rich and The Winner’s Image are simply phenomenal and I believe they are the best personal development programs on the market today. They are simple to follow and incredibly well done. Most importantly they are based in Developmental Learning which as you know is much more effective and results oriented than motivation. That being said, I have been working on an addition to these amazing programs over the last few months and it is near completion it is called The “SUCCESS thINC Learning System“. The SUCCESS thINC Learning System is a total growth program designed to be beneficial to the the personal growth new-comer but also the advanced, a full description can be found at my new website PhilCicio.com. I have been working hard to create maximum value and I believe that this program is maximized.
Personal Development is about finding freedom, not just financial freedom but personal freedom and I believe this system will benefit anyone wishing to satisfy that need. Over the last 20 years I have benefited immensely from these concepts and my true purpose is to share this with you. I do hope you visit me online and take some time to review all of the programs we offer. We are working hard to “Close the gap between where you are and where you want to be”.
I also want to thank all the people who have been subscribing to this blog and sharing on Facebook it has been quite an honor to hear from you and I hope, if we haven’t met, we will in the very near future. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can help you with!
Don’t forget to take Socrates’ advice!
To your success,
