I believe that messages come to us from all different encounters that we have in life and yesterday was no exception! I was driving home from visiting my 89 year old grandmother who is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom in her own right when it comes to all issues regarding life and success when I decided to stop and get some fresh squeezed orange juice from Bob Roth’s famous groves in Davie Florida.
When I walked in I noticed an older man sitting on a golf cart where the samples of oranges and grapfruit sat on the table for customers to enjoy. After I purchased my orange juice I noticed the picture on the Jukebox as I walked out.The picture was of the old man was sitting on the golf cart.
It said happy 100 birthday to Al Roth!
The man was the father of the owner of the groves who had recently turned 100 and was still out there greeting customers. I needed to ask him a question that was most important to me and one that I might be able to share with my clients and friends alike.
I went over to Al and introduce myself and asked him:
” What did he feel was the secret to success”?
He looked at me and said it’s very simple. He said, “you need to learn to control your subconscious mind”.
With all the books that I have read and all the speeches that I’ve delivered I have stressed the philosophy and the importance of the subconscious mind when it comes to success.
Now Al Roth and his hundred years on the planet confirmed that I was on the right track!
Your ability to control your mind and focus your thoughts is paramount to your success in life. We never know when these little secrets or life lessons are going to come upon us, so be open and aware at all times.
You may get one of life’s greatest lessons even if it is at the local orange grove!
