"The management training we took at the Hubbard College has turned out to be a real lifesaver for us. Soon after our training we began applying it and the business flooded in. Anyone can have a successful business if they apply what they learn at the College. The management technology is simple, easy and fun, not to mention financially rewarding.""
— Alan and Sheila Atkinson-Baker
Don't ever do anything as though you were an amateur. Anything you do, do it as a professional to professional standards.
If you have the idea about anything you do that you just dabble in it, you will wind up with a dabble life. There'll be no satisfaction in it because there will be no real production you can be proud of.
Develop the frame of mind that whatever you do, you are doing it as a professional and move up to professional standards in it.
Never let it be said of you that you lived an amateur life. Professionals see situations and they handle what they see. They are not amateur dabblers.
So learn this as a first lesson about life. The only successful beings in any field, including living itself, are those who have a professional viewpoint and make themselves and are professionals.
