Principle: Make your plane land on the landing strip, regardless of the weather

make your plane go where you want it to goI have been "harping" on this with my students: hear the principle first, and then hear the rest...

If I asked you (Cinderella) to separate the wheat from the chaff... what would you do first? If you are like me, you first find out what is the difference... in looks, in weight, and then start separating them accordingly.

I even used to use this capacity (oh, forgot to say, it's a capacity!) to hire or not hire someone to work with me. I would ask someone to separate a pile of things by their category...

For you Everything is the same as everything else ... except not always

Universally missing capacity... I found out.  The underlying capacity can be said with these words: be able to tell the forest for the trees. Continue reading "Principle: Make your plane land on the landing strip, regardless of the weather"

Do you get the promised value when you buy something?

I had an interesting insight this morning.

Putting a price tag on any product, service, or coaching is going to be a lie. My strategy sessions. My 67 step coaching. My health consultations. My Water Energizer. My Heaven on Earth...

Really, almost any product.

For one main reason:

The buyer creates the value for themselves! Nothing has value without someone saying so, without someone valuing it. So that means, that ((The issue is value or valuation. If we didn't have different values, if we valued everything the same, the world would be a lot easier place to navigate.

Around the time of the second world war and the holocaust, an German boy puzzled with the same questions. Fatherland, Jews, peace... he had these heavy duty questions, and he saw that each valued differently. Continue reading "Do you get the promised value when you buy something?"

Floundering? Can’t seem to get from A to B? Don’t know why nothing seems to work?

Maybe you feel clueless? Maybe you feel left behind?

Here is MY clueless story...

I have been asking questions more than normal.

In the past seven years, my site's readership WAS steadily growing... until a month or two ago when it dropped to approximately half of what it was at that point.

It didn't, or better English, hasn't effected my income, but it looked troubling enough to start asking questions.

The pull to ask why questions is tremendous... Why me, why now, why people don't like me?

Meh... But what other questions can I ask?

Now, that is a really useful question: what other questions can I ask? Continue reading "Floundering? Can’t seem to get from A to B? Don’t know why nothing seems to work?"

Compounding interest… the secret of exponential growth…

There is a controversial saying by Charlie Munger, who said: to get what you want, you need to deserve what you want.

This is controversial, because the verb, deserve, is bastardized in our culture. What he should have said:

to have a chance to get what you want, you need to earn what you want. And then say: to earn what you want, you need to become the person who can earn what they want.

And this last sentence is what this article is about: the kind of person who can earn what they want.

One common thread that I notice among my clients and students is that they let their life hang on one or maybe two activities, which is not to be the kind of person who can earn what they want. Continue reading "Compounding interest… the secret of exponential growth…"

Everyone wants to be self-confident… why? Does changing beliefs help? Does energy healing help?

Confidence: firm trust, a sense of self, appreciation someone's proven track record

If you look up the word in the dictionary, that is not what you find.

All dictionaries are now in step with the tendency to make words vague, not matching the reality... this word is a crucial word in your vocabulary. Unless you get this right, your chances of having a self, and thus the chance for self-confidence are between zero and none.

No one takes my Starting Point Measurements Seriously. How do I know? Because I have literally haven't had anyone ask clarifying questions about certain key words that will make or break you... Not even one.

For example, no one has asked me what is awareness, really? Or what is trust? Or goodness... etc. Continue reading "Everyone wants to be self-confident… why? Does changing beliefs help? Does energy healing help?"

You want a better life? Want to avoid a life of quiet desperation? Resignation? Here is your path…

70% of your life is made up of the things you do every day... your habits. The remaining 30% is what you don't have control over.

But even that 30%, where you don't have control over what happens: you have control over how you react, how you do what you end up doing, and what is your attitude. My next article is about that... the how of your life.

Most programs you can buy make up what to teach. Given that the average truth value of programs is around 2%, what they teach must come untried, untested, and altogether not true.

Tai's approach (Tai Lopez, 67 steps) was different. He looked at, primarily, billionaires, secondarily at famous scientists or other authors.

The truths he gleaned from billionaires: 30% truth value, the truths he gleaned from authors: 10% truth value. Hm, interesting.

Where does the difference come from? Continue reading "You want a better life? Want to avoid a life of quiet desperation? Resignation? Here is your path…"

How to use what I teach to become all you can become… A roadmap…

I have given people driving directions in the ancient times where there was no gps and you could not google direction.

How did I do it? I drove the path several times, and took notes: what you see when you need to turn, what you see when you are still on the path, what you see when you went too far.

Looking back, decades later, and I see that this was training, preparation for what I am going to do in this article... give you "driving" directions to how to travel the path from where you are to where I am pointing you.

If that is where you wanted to get to, my directions are good. If that is not where you wanted to get to: you are reading the wrong articles.

The direction I am taking you is towards a destination where "One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things."... or more precisely a "new way of seeing things." Continue reading "How to use what I teach to become all you can become… A roadmap…"

“You can only kick with one foot at a time, Otherwise you fall on your arse.”

"You can only kick with one foot at a time, Otherwise you fall on your arse."

You can only pick one thing that you want out of life, and if you pick the wrong thing, you'll never be successful.

...Joel Salatin said, "the worst thing in life is to get older and realize you got good at the wrong thing."

You would think that the title is about multi-tasking. But it isn't. It is a life that is un-integrated.

So what is an integrated life?

A life is like a symphonic orchestra.

Most people's life sounds like the tuning the instruments phase of the orchestra: cacophony. Bad noise.

Only when the conductor shows up, raps his baton against the music sheets, silence, and music starts. All instruments read the same music sheets, all keep their eyes on the conductor... Integration happens.

An integrated life.

Yeah-yeah Sophie, but what is the music sheet? What should you organize your life around so you can live the integrated and therefore enjoyable life? Continue reading "“You can only kick with one foot at a time, Otherwise you fall on your arse.”"

Your life is like a boat on sea… Where it’s going is given by the drift 96%

Every learning is becoming. Every action that is aimed at learning but doesn't lead to becoming... is not learning, it is just a pretense. Treading water. The drift.

But becoming is not easy, and it takes longer than you would expect. OK, longer than I expect. Longer than I have been expecting... 🙁

Why? because some of the learning requires you to be "right there", ready for that particular learning. You first need to become ready. Continue reading "Your life is like a boat on sea… Where it’s going is given by the drift 96%"
