There are statistics that before someone become a millionaire or a billionaire, they went through a few bankruptcies.
One could surmise that it’s a rule… but what no one is saying, at least I haven’t heard… is the blind chicken rule.
If you learn to see through trial and error what there is to see, in business, in relationships, in health, then your next try will have more chances to succeed, if you put in practice what you saw.
There is something about the learning that is unusual: it is non-verbal.
If the person turns it into words, rules, the learning disappears.
Some soul corrections are more prone to verbalize than others. And for these verbalizer people there is NO CHANCE to learn unless they stop verbalizing.
Why is this? Because verbalizing is now standing in to being present, to being alert, to being discerning… and the person can, now, go through the next experiment all the way to failure, without ever paying attention to what they are doing.
Painful to watch.
It’s so counter-cultural to have non-verbal learning, and a very culturally focused soul correction has a difficult time with that. Not that they are less intelligent… they just think that talking is what it is about.
It is not.
Most people who are good at things, have to struggle to put words around what they are doing, because about 90% of what you do to be successful is non-verbal. Even for someone who seemingly earn their living with words, written or spoken.
If you are one of these “verbally focused” soul corrections, you need to control your tendency to “crystallize” what you see and what you think you are learning, so you don’t block the flow.
Another “hallmark” of this type of person is the faulty premise. They think: if I can think it, it is so… if I can think it it is almost reality.
We could say that they are the ideal suckers for the Law of Attraction teachers: they look at words as reality… while they have a really poor relationship with actions… actions that words can replace.
I have observed a few of these blind-chicken people. They have no problem seeing that a physical thing that needs to be built, needs to be built. A yard project: no problem. Moving house: no problem. Fixing a computer: no problem.
But creating sales, or anything that doesn’t feel physical… they fall for the words, time and time again.
What is the real price they pay? Really two kinds:
1. they never learn anything because they stop looking. In fact, I think, they cannot look and see without guidance. Blind chicken is a really fitting label… with one big missing: they resist being guided. They resist feedback. They don’t want to learn from it.
2. using words to “create” and believe that that is all they need. This puts them squarely in the desire trap… and trust me, that is a nasty place to live.
