‘For sale: baby shoes, never worn‘
He could have written about all humans, about my students… who are just like those baby shoes; unfulfilled dreams… unfulfilled potential.
I just hung up my ‘Distinctions’ podcast call that today was all about entitlement.
The podcast is conversation between a student of mine and myself… and it’s been designed to go deep in some areas of life, an invisible dynamic…
Entitlement is so invisible in ourselves…Entitlement is so invisible in ourselves, that most people would say they are not entitled… but entitlement can be measures… mine is 10%. The average entitlement, a worldview, in the United States is 60%. In France… a different ideology the country is based in, is 10%. Israel: 7%. Germany: 60%. South Korea: 10%. Hungary: 70%.
So for someone in the United states the fastest way to a better life, a better brain, a better everything is to remove the ideology that causes one to waste their lives… whereas is a country like Israel, it is more like doing more.
I personally waste 30% of my life, so for me doing less wasteful things and more productive things would be the path.
One of the ways a person I know wastes 90% of her time and energy is setting harsh rules: I will only do something useful if I have a big block of time. And that ‘condition’ results in her never reviewing any of my courses, never re-listening to any of the calls… and thus ending up with only 1% there was to gain from any of my programs.
Most worldviews are never examined. They are the soil from which everything grows, or the floor people re-arrange the furniture unaware that the floor needs to be changed if life to be changed.
Rare is the person who can see beyond the one-way mirror separating the different paradigms… How rare? About 400 people on the whole planet actually look… Seeing, the Sight capacity is activated by looking. The rest, almost eight billion, never actually looks, never actually asks a question… they don’t even suspect that there is anything beyond what they see inside their paradigms.
- The ‘socialist’ bending doesn’t see the reality of socialism…
- The ‘business first’ doesn’t see beyond their agenda.
- The ‘educational reform’ promoters can’t see what in education is killing ambition, the spirit, and advancement.
So I think that number, 400, is not a fluke.
And this included everyone in every area of life… even when someone can see somewhat beyond… doesn’t mean they see the real invisible dynamics… just some of the symptoms, really.
People who participate in my courses get a chance to be one of the 400… but given their level of entitlement, given their worldview, given how little time and energy they invest to master the material, they don’t…
Imagine doing size dependent things with just 1%… would you be disqualified? Hell yeah…
But entitlement gives people the sense that they deserve to get more without any investment, without any work, without any of themselves.
Certain religions, certain ideology whip up the otherwise innate entitlement of people to feverish pitch… and result in people just waiting for their rightful due to come to them… Manifest in front of their very eyes. After all you are a child of god… so… of course…
- Stupid as the stupid does…
- If you fake it you’ll never make it…
Of course the Inner Authority course that is starting on Sunday could be your ticket to astuteness, clarity, and seeing… But I predict people will do what they always do: get wet as if it were a pool, and then dry off… nothing left of the immense wisdom that is available.
If you ever wondered why I price my courses so low, this is your answer.
The value that is available is not what people should pay for. People should pay for what they are actually able to use… willing to use, willing to invest time and energy to make their own.
And that is how I price my courses… the value: priceless. Based on most people’s track record: 100 times of what I charge.
If there were just one person who is willing to invest themselves… it would be really the best gift to me… I am allowed to dream, am I not?

Let’s see what you are made of… because we will.
