For me personally, I was always sensitive to how a student would respond once they finally knew that they would never be able to exhaust the supply of "opportunities" all around them.
This important breakthrough would cause some of them to relax a lot and to become much more cerebral than before. They focused much better and became very deliberate in their approach. I loved to see that kind of reaction.
But. in contrast, other students would react much like our American history describes people acting when they learned that gold had been discovered nearby. Those students often became very energetic and started to create shortcuts to the strategy. Eventually, some of them would also settle down.
In one of my later books I used a printed step-by-step flowchart to help keep students on track. These same type of experiences kept occurring so that eventually, I began wanting to someday use a software system to help them to behave more like Harvey wanted them to do.
Sherman, you're right, there are a lot of "roadblock beliefs" that hold people back...
It would be great (one day) to come up with a list the most common of these! (If it hasn't been done already...)
By the way, I'm also very interested in the other books and courses you created... (At the moment, I only know about "The Concept" which you created with Harvey...)
Thanks, and best wishes!
