Funny how some of the greatest minds don’t start out that way. For those of you who are not versed in this truth, let me name just a few. Albert Einstein. ThomasEdison. Bill Gates and even Henry Ford – these men are prime examples of people who weren’t considered outstanding students! Einstein didn’t even speak at the age of 6, Edison dropped out of school, Bill Gates left college without a degree, and Henry Ford was taken to court to try to prove that he was an idiot, no kidding, it really happened! Dr. Demartini himself was labeled “slow” and was told that he had never read beyond a lower elementary school level, or that he had never gotten very far. Can you imagine being the one to say that to any of these guys? What a hit that would be! Personally, I would like to crawl into a hole and never get out if I had made such a mistake.
Dr. DeMartini didn’t listen to those Nay Sayers and, lucky for us, he became a Doctor of Chiropractic and Clinical Research. I think that’s a wonderful achievement considering that in addition to being labeled with a learning disability, he had so much more to overcome. At the age of 14, John dropped out of high school and became homeless, as well as begging on the streets for whatever he could get as a way to survive. At 17, he had a near-death experience…and that seemingly tragic event served as a catalyst that changed everything in his life, resulting in a complete 180-degree turn in his thinking and the way he had lived. been living your life before. to a near-fatal ingestion of strychnine.
When he awoke from that experience, he made a promise to himself to become a “teacher, healer, and philosopher.” to change things for himself internally in his mind, body and spirit. These are the reasons why he became a Doctor: the “healing” part of his promise, a Speaker “to master the art of teaching” and also became a student of Philosophy, Science and Theology “to understand our connection with the Divine. He has spent the last 30 years keeping his promise and challenging, as well as changing the way most people think on a day-to-day basis. Now his association with El Secreto is helping him reach more people than ever before.
As I looked at his past, present, and future achievements and intentions, I realized: how many other people would have given up in his place? How many of them would have made the kind of change that Dr. DeMartini did? How many more people are living a life without opposition in their current circumstances? What I mean by the last question is how many people are just “settled” with the life they lead? How many more will never reach their full potential? How many more will? John’s story can serve as a great testament to the inner strength that lies within each and every one of us…if we look deep enough, dig deep enough, and reach high enough, I’d be willing to bet the farm. we could all succeed in becoming better, happier, and even healthier, in our minds and hearts, you know what I’m implying here, after all, those are the places that determine our sense of worth and satisfaction to begin with! You do not agree?
