There is hope, Rick

Not all is lost concerning the lack of acceptance of PCT. I think PCT
will (and in my case is) find acceptance from those who are struggling
to produce some positive results with the people with whom they work.
I am working with several organizations and lots of people who at first
haven't the faintest idea what I'm talking about. As they begin to
find success in turning their own lives around or in getting their
organization to function cooperatively and effectively, they begin to
respect the theoretical basis (PCT) upon which I'm basing my ideas for
helping them. What I'm trying to say is that people have to first
succeed at what ever they are trying to do using your help or your
ideas as the basis for their success. You have to go from the
practical success or practical examples to respect for the basis upon
which those practical ideas come from. That's how I get another's
attention. I'm working with a Catholic priest who runs a largely
volunteer organization called Andre House, which feeds in excess of 800
homeless every day besides providing clothing, shelter (for some), and
help in gaining skills and finding work. I had him read Freedom From
Stress, then we worked on how people can work together while respecting
each other's internal worlds. I talk about measurable goals and
controling variable perceptions and providing feedback and ways of
working with the staff and they with the homeless that would help every
one involved take more control of their internal worlds and the areas
for which they are responsible. The staff hadn't the faintest idea
what I was talking about at first, but my practical suggestions seemed
to have made sense and they tried what I suggested cause it made sense.
As they began to succeed, respect for my ideas spills over to respect
for PCT, and for some, a desire to learn what the heck I'm talking
about. I guess you have to go from practical success to respect for
the theoretical basis and then, for some, a curiosity as to what the
heck is PCT.
