Gratitude / Resources
I would love to express my profound gratitude to the millions of people that have supported this effort. I literally mean millions! From my immediate family and friends to all the teachers through the centuries that have distilled and shared their wisdom from countless other teachers before them. To all the modern authors, teachers and students that I have learned from and finally to the millions of followers, students and teachers in the online world that I am privileged to reach around the world every single day.
There is no doubt that I will miss many that have influenced and supported me and this work. The good news, is because this is all in the digital cloud, I can add as I remember.
Immediate family: Dot and Ken Tipper, Delaine, Lynn, Wayne, Melia, Amy.– for unfailing support, even though many times I’m sure they thought I was off the deep end.
– This is going to be a big list and I will add as I remember. This includes people online that I have met that have influenced the creation of this course in some way.
A special thanks to Rebekka McAllum from Melbourne, Australia who was the first friend to step up to the plate and give this course a serious listen and run through a year ago and test the principles for herself. I was inspired at every connection with Rebekka as she showed up with complete honesty, vulnerability and total willingness to dive in and give constructive feedback with a great sense of humor. 🙂
Dr. Lynne Namka, FB friend, Psychologist, Author, Positive People Contributor. I had been FB friends with Lynne for quite some time and like many FB friends, we didn’t really connect until fairly recently. When I started to pay attention to Lynne’s work, I knew I had to contact her. When Lynne and I finally connected and shared what we were each doing, she generously donated her huge library of incredible psychology articles to the Positive People project. I learned more about the nuts and bolts of Psychology, Symptoms and Solutions, and how it relates to this course in 3 months than from dozens of books I had read on the subject. Visit Lynne’s psychology articles section on this site.
