  3. Awareness – They look at their own life and asking what area do I need to work on today?
  4. Pain – Your greatest gain can come through your greatest pain. As an example, think about the founder of MADD (mothers against drunk drivers).    Gain may come through a broken relationship, a financial loss, bad health or a great disappointment, all painful but great sources personal gain.
