HAVE, DO, & BE, but in what order?

David's board-work during his presentation. Read about it below & tell us if
you agree with the concept he presented about how to reach your goals.

David Sanchez in the TOEFL class shared some ideas and techniques he's learned from two experts: Ramon Campayo, who studies the mind and shares ways of improving memory, and Mario Alonso Puig, a Harvard doctor who lectures on motivation, leadership, and creativity, among others. Have you heard of either of them? 

One concept that David pointed out was the idea of HAVING, DOING, and BEING in terms of reaching your goals. Most people think of their goals in this order. You need to HAVE something first, so you can DO what you want to do; then you can BE who you want to be. What David learned is that it is in fact the reverse. We need to simply BE who we are first, then DO what we enjoy doing, and the things that we want to HAVE will come. 

What do you think? Do you agree? Have you heard of the same concept, perhaps said differently? Share it with us here, on our Facebook page, or on Twitter @NYLangCenter.
