We so appreciate the time you spent with us Tuesday.
The seminar you did about creating profit by empowering
people had a tremendous impact on our entire
organization. You could feel the energy shift after
you had left. Normally things can be really hectic
and full of stress (as you saw when you visited us to do a
"needs analysis"). Now people are letting
go of the panic and focusing on being productive.
What a tremendous change!
We are grateful for your time
and the obvious enjoyment you get out of helping
people. I will highly recommend you to anyone who is
experiencing the same challenges we were.

If they say yes to all
these points, then you say you will need to have a
workshop about replacing stress with profit.
Dr. Gordon, the founder
of The Monetary Stress Institute, has designed a
system and technique which he has taught his participants
that stress or lack of profit are thoughts, and
thoughts are within us. If we take control of our thought
process we can reduce our stress. Everything depends
on the way we look at the situation.
Dr. Gordon gives the
participants the tools to be able to reduce their
stress. Dr Gordon teaches how to achieve financial
goals with breakthrough in mind. He teaches creative
thinking that will get the participants and their
organization to where they want to go.
In his workshop, he will be
introducing a new language that will help the participants
to make the distinction between the reality and their
thoughts, which will help them to create what they want.
Once the participants learn
how not to be stressed about their monetary situation or
the financial situation of the company, they can be open
to create something completely new, a new attitude that
will bring with it more profit.
The participants feel
empowered and focused, which brings the best out in each
person. It is bringing the real person that they are to
the world, the person that they want to express before too
many things got in their way. It helps them to focus
and have clarity about goals and mission.
Creating Profit by
the best out in each person or each employee.
It is bringing the “real
you” to the world, the part that you want to express but
too many things got in your way. It helps you to
focus and have clarity about goals and missions.
Once you are focused and
empowered, you can produce and achieve your highest
potential. You will not waste any more time on work and
matters that are nonessential. Even if you start
focusing on a very small project or idea, your success in
that project will be so great that it will be easier to
duplicate it and expand later on into many more areas.
Success in one field will have a ripple effect on many
other fields. This in turn will create a projection of
excellence, empowering you and creating better results
Empowerment cannot be
created by constant extrinsic help. Even benefits
like increased salary will not help (except perhaps for a
month or two). During this process the employers have to
find how to ignite the intrinsic power that exists within
each person. Empowerment takes the command away from
one commander and makes us our own commanders for the
overall betterment of the company. In empowerment,
the goal is to empower the employees, not to control
them. If you try to control employees, they
usually rebel by not agreeing to follow directions, and
trying to gain control by doing other dissatisfying
things. Amounts of money that are spent, the kind of
furniture that is bought, can be controlled, but people
cannot be controlled. Be empowered to do your
Empowering is not giving
individuals power that they do not have. It
motivates us to use our own power. Empowering
doesn't mean taking away the boundaries and letting
everyone do what they want. If everyone just does
what he or she wants, the organization will revert to
unempowering them, because there is no direction.
Create boundaries, create a goal, create a mission
statement, and be motivated to work within the framework
the best that we can do.
Empowering is teaching
others not to be dependent. When people understand that
they are empowered, they are motivated to act
better. When you are empowered, you perform
better. Empowering is the boss giving up control but
still keeping the responsibility to guide things to
Empowerment will make
things happen the way they are supposed to happen.
Empowering is also letting everyone express what they want
to do which will also be in alliance with what is best for
the company. If you are obliged only to work with
the goal of the company without expressing your own
desires, the achievement will be very low. However,
if all the employees have their own mission statements
within the company, they will perform much better.
Empowerment is the
opposite of judgment. Judgment is based on being right or
wrong, which is subjective; there are not just one or two
but many sides to very complicated issues. Sometimes
it is hard to understand another until you see his point
of view. The problem with judging is that it will
bring others to react defensively and put their energy
into a direction we do not want. If you act out fear
guilt or shame as a consequence of judgment, your
reactions will subside after a while and the judgment will
not have any effect anymore.

leaders are leaders whose employees say we did it

Dear Dr. Gordon:
Thank you for your
excellent presentation at our luncheon meeting. Your
topic, "Replacing Stress with Profit," certainly
is a pressing issue for many members who were present.
Your interesting viewpoints were well taken by all members
that I have spoken with.
I have reviewed my notes
taken during your presentation and certainly plan on
implementing some of your ideas. With all the emphasis
on stress in the "work-place" it is important to
understand proven stress management techniques.
Once again, thank you for
your provocative presentation!
A wealthy man
enjoys the amount of money that he has while a rich person
might worry about the amount of money that he does not have
without enjoying what he has. A wealthy man
comes out of abundance. There is an abundance of
wealth in the world. It belongs to him and he also
shares it with the world. His wealth helps him and
everyone around him. His wealth is not created by taking it
from somebody else, but by adding to the total wealth of the
world. His richness is not only in money but also in the
spiritual world with his family with his friends and
everyone around him. So I want you to feel wealthy and then
by law of attraction you will attract more of everything
into your life. Do not be a person who is always
worried about his money and by law of attraction attracts
more problems. Remember that the way you feel about your
money becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Do not give a
bad meaning to money. It is true that some people misuse
money. There are crooks in the world who misuse money,
but you are not one of them. It is the same as water—water
is always considered an essential part of your life. I
want you to think about money as an essential part of your
life. We do not think of all the flooding and the damage
that water has caused in the world; we think about the
good that the water has done to us. I want you to
think the same way about money. Sometimes too much of it
might spoil certain things, the same way that a flood does.
When you think about the air that you breathe you do not
think about the wind chill factor or the cold winds of
Chicago. We think how important it is for us to breathe.
When you admire a beautiful piece of glass sculpture, you do
not think about how a broken glass might cut your foot.
It’s true that everything that has beauty to it might have
another side to it. Don’t ignore the other side;
however, identify with the positive and beautiful side of
think the same way about money. Think about all the
good the money has brought into the world. Think of all the
philanthropic actions that been have taken throughout
history. Think about all the good things that you will be
able to do with money. How many people you will be to help.
This does not mean to give all your money away. However if
you do not have money you do not have what to give. It means
helping the economy, by paying your employees, by running
your business, and even by shopping and providing other
So it is
important that you will actively work on making money,
collecting money that other people owe you in order to
continue the cycle. By thinking that money is not a positive
thing, that when it will come it will come, you are breaking
the cycle of money. You do not get what you deserve
and this might force you not to be able to pay all the
people who are dependent on you.
Money is a
commodity that you gain by working in order to help other
It might be
easier for you to think that when you collect money, you do
it to help the economy, to help your employees, to help
their families, and everyone in the world that you will give
