Back to the Gulf
This has been a busy month so far.
This has been a busy month so far. On Monday, November 5th, I spoke all day for 500 sales people and entrepreneurs in Chicago on the subjects of personal and sales success.
On Tuesday, November 6th, I spoke for Larry Bailin and more than three hundred highly motivated entrepreneurs and sales people in Edison New Jersey for half a day.
After New Jersey, I flew to Toronto and conducted two three-hour seminars for Jonathan Weaver and Peak Performers on Wednesday, November 7th.
On Thursday, November 8th, I arose in Toronto, packed two bags, my large suitcase for everything I needed for the next eight days, plus my carryon suitcase with my essential clothes and materials for the next three-four days. I checked in my large suitcase at the Toronto airport, flew to New York, transferred at JFK to a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight and spent the next eleven hours flying across the world to Jeddah and Riyadh, deep in “The Kingdom.”
I arrived on time but my large suitcase disappeared. Leading to ten days of telephone calls and text messages, back and forth, seeking my lost bag all over the western world. It finally arrived home in San Diego on November 24, 16 days after disappearing.
Fortunately, I always carry my essential clothes and material in a carryon bag, just in case my larger bag is lost for any reason. Because of this, I was able to continue on speaking in Saudi Arabia, Poland, Germany and Turkey for the next week with only minor inconveniences, and no serious problems. I recommend this strategy, of carrying your essentials with you, to anyone who travels long distances.
Because of $90 oil, the oil producing countries of the gulf are awash with billions of petro dollars. They are investing this money in building their countries into ultra modern states, plus putting this money to work in Europe and America.
My clients in Saudi Arabia, Lal Khaleej Corporation is the most successful training company in Saudi Arabia and in the entire Gulf region. They have fourteen hundred professional trainers and course development specialists, offering courses that cover the entire gamut, from English immersion through to every aspect of business development. It was a pleasure to meet with them and to work with them.
As usual, I read and study on the areas I visit, as extensively as possible, before going. Muslims believe that the Koran is the absolutely indisputable word of God, relayed from Allah to Mohammad, his messenger. They believe that not a single word can be questioned or debated, the Koran is considered to be a divine book that cannot be altered or even clearly explained in any other language other than Arabic.
Followers of Islam believe that the Koran, being the inspired the inspired word of Allah, answers all questions and explains all life situations. For this reason, followers of Islam are called “People of the book.”
This means that they believe that “Everything is written.” There are no disputes that the Koran does not settle. For this reason, followers of Islam are quite accepting of whatever happens in the world.
