Dear Mark Hamilton,
I have enjoyed reading all your books and thoroughly looked forward to becoming a member. I listened to your lectures and started on the daily calls a couple of weeks ago. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the callers. There was such loving and patient interactions that I felt encouraged and supported. Before I can start being creative with your club I need to find a job. A job will increase my self-confidence as well as my income and sense of security. Then, a few meetings ago the support stopped and coersion began. I no longer felt supported; I was being strongly encouraged to get involved as that’s the only way they can tell whether I’m growing or not. I thought perhaps that was a fluke, but the following meeting was more of the same.
Job hunting is not as easy as it used to be with so many people competing for jobs. I’m sensitive right now, and I really need the support of the club, but I find my interest in calling has declined. I’ll call again tonight, but if I don’t feel supported I will stop calling until after I am happily ensconced in my next position. I don’t understand why there has to be coersion. People are either interested or they’re not. People already know they’ll be left behind if they don’t step up. Telling them that actually hampers the creativity, at least it does for me. I need to feel accepted and supported.
I just wanted you to know what’s going on with me. I didn’t want you to think I just abandoned the club.
