- Who is Gary Douglas?
Gary Douglas has spent his life in the search of truth. He made a commitment to himself to be honest and stand by his word early on in his life.
Gary’s experience in the horse industry taught him that you can’t lie with a horse, either you’re there or you’re not. If you’re true with a horse, they will be true for you. Gary wondered if it were possible to be that way with people too. This realization eventually lead to the creation of Access Consciousness.
- Do people not have a commitment to completing?
Never give up, never give in, and don’t quit. But that doesn’t mean you won’t change if something is not working. Most people talk themselves out of even trying before they really know if it’s working or not.
If you want something, what do you have to be or do to get it? If you are not being or doing that thing, how can you expect that you will get what you wanted?
- What did you learn that allowed you to come to that realization?
Gary set his goal to own a horse. Once he knew what he wanted, he learned how to be so good at riding horses that he was able to get better deals on horses that no one else could ride. He would then teach the horse how to let people ride them, and be able to sell that horse for much more than he purchased it for.
If you’re not willing to be or do what you need to succeed, you will not achieve your goals. Your level of commitment will reflect in your results.
- What was the genesis of Access Consciousness?
Access Consciousness is about creating the tools and techniques that allow people to create more in their life.
If you ask a question, the universe can give you an answer. You have come to a conclusion, the only thing you can be aware of is the conclusion you already have.
- What is the role of failure?
Always look for a constant state of expansion instead of a result. You should always be aware of what is going on and assessing what is working and what isn’t.
Once you make the choice to pursue a goal, you will discover the path to make it a reality. You need to find out what is possible, not just what is probable.
Things that are easy for are not necessarily easy for everybody. The thought patterns we’ve been taught are not serving us anymore and we need to think of the world in terms of what is possible.
Don’t try to create the change you want to see in the world, be it.
- Where should we look to discover our hidden talents?
Think about the things that are natural and easy for you, and brainstorm ways you can use that skill to make money.

- Gary’s Takeaway
Never give up, never give in, and never quit. Never listen to anyone else and don’t share your ideas with people. The one thing that most people will tell you first is why you can’t do it.
