The role of thinking, mindset, attitude in life and death

When I do the health measurements for people, the last step is to see what causes or will likely cause big troubles if nothing changes.

The first of such causes (thinking/emotional errors, attitude) is what I want to talk about in this article... because I am just going through, or have just gone through something that even I didn't expect, despite all my experience to the opposite.

I have been waiting to die.

I felt it inevitable. My mother died at my age... so I will too.

Yesterday was the day I was exactly, to the day as old as my mom was when she died. And I didn't die. Continue reading "The role of thinking, mindset, attitude in life and death"

Times are a’changing… are you prepared?

Are you secure enough in who you are to look at things that are of no personal relevance to you?

That sounds like a 'so what?' question, but it isn't.

You see, one of the most important measures in predicting your happiness and success in life is your cone of vision plus your about-me score.

Ultimately the two measures, combined, give me how much of all-knowledge you are willing and able to see... so you can navigate life, the economy, relationships, health, successfully.

The smaller the combined measure is, the less you are willing to see. Your reaction to it: 'it doesn't apply to me' and you just block it out. You don't even entertain it for a moment. (I can see it in your 67-step reports clearly. Or in what articles you open... or not) Continue reading "Times are a’changing… are you prepared?"

The fastest way to get better in every area of life…

...or how you are a one-legged person trying to win an ass-kicking contest

I have been experimenting.

I have run two experiments among the many that have brought results I did not expect. Results that told me that I have been one of these one-legged people. Continue reading "The fastest way to get better in every area of life…"

You can flip the context of anything… and change your life

One of the transformational moves I use with my students is 'flipping the context.'

Context is decisive, and the context inside which you live your life is what makes your life great or horrible... not what happens to you. Continue reading "You can flip the context of anything… and change your life"

Can The Sight be useful if you habitually don’t look?

The willingness to look is a behavior, it's an attitude, and therefore cannot be activated.

If you act without looking, or if you act from what you stored in your mind, then the activator of the capacity to see the consequences of your actions won't make any difference.

There is a prerequisite to seeing: and that is looking. Continue reading "Can The Sight be useful if you habitually don’t look?"

The parallels, the differences between Robert Greene and me

Robert Greene definition or distinctionIt was Apr 9, 2021

I spent that whole day watching Robert Greene, listening to him, reading him... And had a question to you:

What is the difference between a worldview where you look through definitions and a worldview where you look through distinctions.

Definition vs distinction

The first thing to do is to see what is a definition. Whatever you define: you talk about it. It's characteristics, and you try to be as descriptive and as exactly as possible. Continue reading "The parallels, the differences between Robert Greene and me"
