Are you working on your pretend self? Trying to make it better? Read this article for clues…

I have students at all different stages of their personal paths.

I, as a coach, can do only so much. I answer their posts, and then I write my articles. And the rest happens where I am not. Inside them, in their interaction with people, in their interaction with stuff.

This is the hardest part.

My soul correction is Forget Thyself... meaning I want to be personally causing stuff... I did it, Me, Mine. Talking over people, having no patience for people doing things the "wrong way".

I have been gaining ground in my soul correction, but it is still wicked difficult. Especially when someone has a good result that has nothing to do with me... lol.

So my first reaction to a student breakthrough is feeling let down... I didn't do it... lol.

This is what happened this morning.

A student of mine had a glimpse, a momentary clarity of who and how he really is... His real self...

Here is what he wrote: Continue reading "Are you working on your pretend self? Trying to make it better? Read this article for clues…"

The key to consistency… Winners are consistent. What is missing for you?

Yesterday I had a huge awakening.

A long held assessment of mine that I was a lousy business coach fall apart.

I have tried my hand on business coaching many times in the past 40 years, and every time I hated it. So I didn't even gave myself an opportunity to do it badly... I fired the clients after one or two sessions.

Now, what has changed that I don't think of myself as a bad business coach?

A whole lot...

But before I make the list... let me look for the source of this change... Continue reading "The key to consistency… Winners are consistent. What is missing for you?"

Everyone talks about reprogramming your mind or brain or whatever part they blame for your lack of success and lackluster life.

Everyone talks about reprogramming your mind or brain or whatever part they blame for your lack of success and lackluster life.

When Tiger Wood discovered that his swing that he trained and won with was actually limiting him, he needed to take time out to "reprogram" his body to do the swing differently.

If you try to program the brain while you keep the current programming, you'll be like me... I was in an Israeli supermarket when this French lady came up to me and asked me if I spoke French. Yes, I said. Can you read the English instructions on this box in French for me?

I started to read it in French, I thought, but turned out I read it in Hebrew, or a mix of French and Hebrew: I could not even tell.

The memory of that fiasco stuck in my mind forever: this was 30 plus years ago.

So what do the "reprogram the mind" people do wrong that no one ever gets reprogrammed, and basically we are all screwed if we follow their teachings?

Before you can write something on a blackboard, and make it dominant, you need to erase what is already there. Continue reading "Everyone talks about reprogramming your mind or brain or whatever part they blame for your lack of success and lackluster life."

Desensitizing you to the mind-noise

Desensitizing

the unexamined lifeI watch Netflix series that don't make sense on the surface for me to watch. But when I look, there is no book, no fiction, that would teach me that principle.

I am looking for principles. Principles are a lot like laws. According to the dictionary, a principle is a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.

When things don't work, there is something you don't see... when things don't work, most of the time what you don't see is that the principle or principles upon which you build the thing that isn't working, are not sound principles.

If your premises are false, wrong, or mistaken, whatever you build on it won't work.

Most of humanity's life is a history of false premises. All the statements of what humans are supposed to do, allowed to do, are false premises, popped out of someone's near-sighted, or skewed brain. Continue reading "Desensitizing you to the mind-noise"

Imagining success, imagining stuff… here is what really happens…

Unless you know what creates your sky high desire number, and your unbridgeable gap between reality and your delusion... you need to learn where it comes from, what feeds it, and what is the feeder's goal.

Your guiding principle should be: If in 30% you don't know who is the sucker in the room, then it's you. You are the sucker.

So how are you made the sucker? And how come you don't know?

The mind, that storage/imaging device that is part of your brain, is really stupid. It really believes everything it hears.

You do "imagine" exercises, and the mind believes that it's there.

Now, what good does that do to you? None, I say... no matter what your "wealth conditioning" expert teaches you.

It gives you delusions, and a delusional person becomes the next sucker... plain and simple. Continue reading "Imagining success, imagining stuff… here is what really happens…"

How does your Soul Correction prevent you from getting to a life worth living?

When you change the way you see things, the things you see change!

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.
-Einstein

I have a disproportionately large number of people asking for their numbers, whose soul correction is "Sexual Energy"

I could ponder why the Kabbalist named the soul correction that... but instead of that I'll say: How you do anything is how you do everything... meaning whatever your attitude to one thing in life, will be visible in every area of life, including sex.

The main attitude of this soul correction, "Sexual Energy" is: It is my due. One may say "I deserve it". I heard the expression "Magiya li" in Israel a lot. 1

We all think about certain things, we all view certain privileges as a right, as a due, as an "of course", but the nature of reality dares to differ. Continue reading "How does your Soul Correction prevent you from getting to a life worth living?"

Why is meaning missing from your life? A meaningless life means you are unhappy

My methodology to lead you to become a human being is simple, and step by step.

First you become conscious of the machine and start taking control over your own life... by the Amish Horse Training Method, The memes finding, The A is A. And then fourth and final step is finding/creating the wind you walk into... The purpose. The meaning.

In the Nazi concentration camps, people who had a meaning to their lives, survived, people who didn't... died. The guy who I learned this from is Victor Frankl, an Austrian Jew, like Sigmund Freud, and not much less significant. In my experience his discovery is the golden key to a happy existence.

The connection between how you listen and how alive you are…

You listen... approximately. And your life can be no better... you are at best approximately alive.

Your powers of distinguishing the relevant from the irrelevant, the worth listening to or the noise, the worth reading or the noise, the worth knowing or the noise are not even on a kindergartner level.

Why? Because you have all these amazing human abilities, but you don't use them.

When I tell you to practice the Amish Horse Training Method, and I explain that the way it goes is that the Amish farmer ties the young horse in training to a pole next to a busy highway, and leaves it to deal with the noise of the highway for 30-60 days. Continue reading "The connection between how you listen and how alive you are…"

Is it really beliefs that keep you from what you want?

Is there really such a thing as a belief?

One of the things that keep you stuck is the language that you use.

One of the words that definitely hand over the reins to someone else is the word belief.

I, personally, argue that such a thing even exists.

Approaching life, approaching reality, approaching tasks with inadequate tools, antiquated tools will lead to disaster, and that is where you, most of you, find yourself.

Lots of words, lots of books, lots of talking, but no advancement. Neither personally, nor as a race.

As a true empath, I actually see why.

You and everything you read is stuck on the surface. On the seeming working of the Universe, or in this case, the seeming working of a human.

If we dealt with computers, or cars, or even houses the way we deal with, try to fix, etc. humans, ourselves, our thinking, our behavior, we would go back to the stone age. Continue reading "Is it really beliefs that keep you from what you want?"

I have been toying with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course…

I have been toying, playing with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course...

What has been blocking me is the kinds of people who want it.

You see effortless is a lie... although efforting, per se, 2 is unnecessary.

Efforting is a concept. But doing things, learning things, unlearning things, is sometimes hard work. And for most people, who are attracted to the Effortless Abundance idea, work is a dirty word. Continue reading "I have been toying with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course…"
