Leland Val Van de Wall, Dutch born Canadian.
Val Van de Wall taught many people and got their attention by a few very profound statements and observations:
Anywhere in this world of ours you will find:
- 5 percent of any country's population getting up in the morning, being perfectly aware of what is happening and going out to make things happen.
- 15 percent of any country's population getting up in the morning somehow being aware of what is happening and allowing the top 5 percent to instruct them on how to make things happen.
- 80 percent of any country's population getting up in the morning wondering what the hell happened!?”
I found this to be profoundly discouraging finding until Val Van de Wall explained: Each individual has a choice of which group he or she wants to be in. Stan chose the 5 percent group and from that day forward has started to live his life according to his rules and beliefs.
"The degree to which a person can grow is directly proportional to the amount of truth he can accept about himself without running away." – Leland Val Van De Wall
