February Speaker Series: 
Learn the three principles we must know before
“Getting Lucky”
With Rev. Dr. Bary Fleet
Tuesday, February 26th
7:30 - 9:00 a.m.
Massasoit Community College
49 Union St., Middleboro

Did anyone tell you that there is a science to success???  Do you know that there are specific principles for success … that always work … IF you always work the principles?  Just as there are laws that govern the Universe, so are there “laws” or principles that govern Success.   Success isn’t about Being Lucky, and it isn’t even about hard work, though hard work is often an intricate part.  Success is about following the principles.  All successful people, whether they realize it or not, are practicing scientifically proven principles.  It doesn’t matter what your goals are … whether you want to own an ultra-successful business, become a successful entrepreneur, enjoy a happy and fulfilling relationship or to lose weight … or anything else, the principles for success are always the same.    In this Eye-opening, Exciting and Thought-provoking seminar, you will learn about the three the fundamental principles that every successful person must – and can – control.
