This article was inspired by an Aeon.co article against cheerfulness as a virtue
I am taking that concept to its conclusion… So here we go…
The mantra of the world-class thinker is: “I am responsible.”
That quote is from Mentally Tough leader, Steve Siebold…
I get his one-sentence emails, and I read them. They are all wakeup calls, and they are all telling me the many ways your TLB, Twitchy Little Bastard score manifests.
I teach that the most valuable ability, capacity, aspiration, maybe even virtue is to interact with reality.

I have been working longer hours than usual, listening to recorded courses of mine, and listening to more than 10 hours of Partner calls a week.
Increasing the intensity and listening to older, already forgotten courses has done me good: I am seeing some questions I haven’t been asking.
How many predatory genes you have. How much energy you have to do the work to go to the next level. Is the machine stronger than your desire to be free? Well? Productive? Happy?
The human culture pulls toward self-righteous attitudes, where people have an illusion that life should go their way. That other people should conform to their requirements.
I remember when this pull broke for me.
It was a simple, innocent sounding question: What would life be like if everyone were like you? Continue reading “The uncatchable ball”

Warning: lots of footnotes in this article!
I am Jewish…
Jewish people are not genetically smarter than non-Jews… In fact, no ethnic groups are genetically smarter than others. And yet, certain groups test better both on tests and in life. Depending on the learning culture of different communities, the IQ numbers differ tremendously. But, in my humble opinion, when you take the child out of the environment, and put them into a different environment, their abilities, their IQ will match the new environment standard… so it is not innate, and not genetic.
This is what is meant by: “all men created equal…” genetically. Not smarter than they were when they left the Savannah of Africa, not genetically. No, with regards to capabilities, it is all in the “nurture”, not in “nature”.
This is the results of my thousands of muscle tests over the years. Continue reading “If you can’t beat them… join them… Or what it takes to turn yourself into a high producer…”
Inspiration… what is it and why do you want to have it?
Inspiration, breathing life into inert or unconscious matter… is the difference between a machine and a Man…
An inspired action, an inspired life, an inspired person is vastly different from most people, actions, lives on the planet in that what guides those is what is beyond the 10% reality, and beyond the emotional dramatic interpretation and meaning based lives humans live nowadays.
Inspiration, it seems, is a right-brain phenomenon. Curiosity is also a right brain phenomenon… and so are conscience, inner motivation, etc. Few even know the words.
Whether inspiration has anything to do with spirit, or if spirit is even real, is another question: I won’t concern myself with that question in this article. It won’t really matter, it is a sidetrack.
Inspiration is Right-brain… really?

One of the most telling measurements in my Starting Point Measurements is the number of spiritual capacities you have active in your DNA.
The world, humanity’s average score on that measurement is 0.4. My students’ is 0.6.
Why is that a telling measurement, Sophie? you should ask, but you don’t.
OK, let me explain even though no one is asking. Spiritual capacities are DNA capacities that only open when they are needed to get work done with them.
Some work cannot be done well, some things cannot be performed well, some things cannot be seen accurately or at all without one or more capacities.
Example: A medical doctor cannot diagnose well,

March 4, 2011 I’ve been talking about paradigm jumping as a major tool to improve your life. I have been talking about all kinds of stuff regarding paradigms, but what is it, and why should you care?
Evolution of a species is not linear.
There are evolutionary shifts, we could say paradigm shifts. The fish climbing out to dry land was a paradigm shift. A lot more freedom, a lot more stimuli, a lot more fun… but also a lot more danger… And evolutionary jump.
Humanity is poised to take an evolutionary jump, and by poised I mean: should take an evolutionary jump if it wants to survive as a species on this beautiful little planet called Earth.

It is, it has been hard to see, but I think I can see it now.
You want to get without giving. Anything, if possible, a thank you at most… so that
- You shouldn’t have to reciprocate
- You shouldn’t have to pay attention
- You shouldn’t have to do anything for what you want… especially not something that another person will or may benefit from
The worst of human nature is starting to take over…
You could call it stinginess… but I think we have gone past that stage… stingy was nice compared to… wait for it…
Circuitry: blocking even the chance of thinking about any energy going to the other… Block the flow…

What is the fastest way to devolve… the greased chute to lose your vibration? To move yourself to the horizontal plane…
- Sometimes I write articles to solve an issue for myself… Tai calls this chess-like assiduity… lol.
- Sometimes I write articles to address and issue one or more clients are dealing with… and help them solve it for themselves. Because, remember, when things don’t go well… there is something that you don’t know/don’t see
- And sometimes I write articles to prevent an issue for a client, and issue that is predictably coming.
This article fits category two and three… Some clients are struggling with an issue the other clients are about to encounter…
The issue is devolving. Greased chute to hell… Not a happy issue, is it?
So, let’s get starting.

Mental Models: relate to and solve problems with different, fundamentally different views (perspectives) of reality
It doesn’t take high IQ… it takes the ability (spiritual/mental capacities need to be activated in your DNA through application) to look at things in different ways.
You have an innate, most likely emotions-based mental model, where you judge things by how you feel about them or the person who recommends/sells them.
What clues you in that you are using a mental model is the word: know/don’t know
And that is, of course, all the time.
Some mental models are more useful than others, but all of them are imprecise. Why? Because “reality is collective hunch… at best.” Continue reading “A vibrational review of Michael Simmons, and the introduction of the occurrence mental model you want to get rid of”
Homo Sapiens, as a species, is pretty messed up. Everything sets its emotions off, and the specimen gets all emotional, angry, afraid, violent, or sad and depressed.
This emotional reactivity makes getting things done near impossible, learning, or having people together pretty hopeless.
Almost all diseases are a consequence of this phenomenon… people eat to soothe themselves. People eat to eat another out of their fortune. People eat to feel superior. People eat to get some enjoyment out of life.
And they eat to fix the damage that overeating caused, and do all kinds of unnecessary things to reduce the damage. Continue reading “You never feel bad about what you think you feel bad about”
