I have been noticing a strong reluctance of people to find out the truth about themselves.

self defeating attitudeI have been noticing a strong reluctance of people to find out the truth about themselves.

When they do, they are relieved... so it is before... when they don't know what's wrong with them.

There is, there are signals that you are not in perfect alignment with who you would need to be to be happy, to be fulfilled, to be healthy, vigorous, the world is my oyster kind of guy or gal.

And you hate it, because it niggles away on you, like the thought of getting a C diagnosis from a doctor, the diagnosis of almost certain death.

So you procrastinate. Continue reading "I have been noticing a strong reluctance of people to find out the truth about themselves."

Small thinking always indicates a small life, small opportunities, low vibration.

judgment is like looking in a mirrorBut it's so "normal" to be a small thinker, that many people think they are big thinkers because they have big pie-in-the-sky desires.

What is a pie-in-the-sky desire? It is an end goal to which there is no ladder and there is no intention to build one.

One of the things I measure in the Starting Point Measurements is the size of your desire vs. the size of your ambition.

People with sky high desire entertain pie in the sky goals.

The easiest "test" to find out is to ask them to do the skill-finder process from the book "What Color is Your ParachutE" that has been published, I guess, for 50 years? OK... I just checked, for 49 years. Continue reading "Small thinking always indicates a small life, small opportunities, low vibration."

Does everybody really count, or is that a seductive slogan?

change is the result of true learningEither everybody counts or nobody counts... this is the principle that makes Michael Connelly's books so dear to me. Obviously, to me, that labels me as a commie, a Democrat, a lefty... but I really don't care... It's your issue, not mine. My job is to be true to my principles.

I like crime novels. Most of them are clean and most of them go into the details that allow me to be forced to ride on the surface, to turn the page too eagerly, but stay on the page I am on: savoring it. Rare to find books like that.

No FOMO, I am where I am supposed to be. No desire to be anywhere else, doing anything other than what I am doing.

Priceless. Continue reading "Does everybody really count, or is that a seductive slogan?"

What is your time worth? What does it have to do with your worth?

what is your time worth? do you value your time?If you are in business... or even if you are only selling your time/work at a job or freelancing, pricing your merchandise, friendship, advice, companionship, your time, your service is going to be something worth looking at.

A few decades ago I published a magazine. The magazine was free, the income came from advertising.

A girl whom I knew from before, who worked at the same architect's office I worked, called me and asked if she could trade cleaning my office for advertising. Turns out she was turning tricks...

She came to the office, worked for an hour and expected it to cover the price of a quarter page ad, $200 at the time.

Why? Because that is what she got paid by her johns. lol Continue reading "What is your time worth? What does it have to do with your worth?"

If you can’t even SEE a better future…

My Sunday calls, a kind of podcast with limited accessibility (paid), used to be called Sunday Rants.

A rant is a loud and extended complaint. 1

I am a joyfully exuberant person... I stand out wherever I go, some people love me around, others hate me... I make ripples, I ruffle feathers. I am that way. I don't try to, I don't have a "what to do to appear exuberant"... Continue reading "If you can’t even SEE a better future…"

Raise Your Vibration: The Original Design

original design If you've known me and my work, you know that I talk to something I call Source. I begged it for decades to allow me to do the work for it, and today I get all my knowledge from it.

Our conversations happen on many levels, feelings, premonitions, dreams, stuff showing up when I need to deal with it, and also through things that I initiate: muscle testing yes/no answers.

A few days ago I spent some time, not long, I ran out of intelligent questions. The question I wanted an answer to: who or what are you?

Source said it is physical, even though it has no particles, no shape, no volume, no... whatever would make it physical in my world. And it is sentient. Continue reading "Raise Your Vibration: The Original Design"

Life is an experiment. Unless you only have good and bad, successful or failure in your vocabulary

An experiment is always successful. It is successful at showing what it shows. Whether you interpret accurately what it shows or not... is up to you. And then what you do with what it suggests is up to you...

"Do not be timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Considering my life, life is an experiment has been probably the best thing I've ever invented for myself. Why? Because it killed 90% of the voices inside that said that I was stupid, that I was a loser, that nobody will ever love me.

I hate learning new things... Why?

Yeah, why would anyone hate learning new things?

What does learning new things means? REALLY REALLY MEAN? About you.... Continue reading "Life is an experiment. Unless you only have good and bad, successful or failure in your vocabulary"

change is the result of true learningChange is the end result of all true learning ~ Leo Buscaglia

I found this site, Quotation Celebration, by accident.

And, unusual for me, I signed up to the notification list.

This quote came in today's email.

It is the perfect quote for where my students are at: unless there is a change, nothing has happened. You got some mind candy, some insights, maybe some new rules to resist, but it is all useless. Continue reading "Change is the end result of all true learning ~ Leo Buscaglia"

Updated: Your soul correction and commitment: What is the connection?

soul correctionAs I have said before, soul correction is a set of character defects, specific to your soul correction, that you need to overcome in a lifetime.

Track record through written history shows, that unless someone has guidance, expert guidance, they will not overcome the character defects: it is as if the character defect protects itself.

Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking your potential. ~ Winston Churchill

Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking YOUR potential.

How much potential you have? Except for one person, Elon Musk, the Tesla guy, everyone is only using less than 10% of their potential. He stands out with a whopping 11%.

How much potential remains dormant in you? If my example is any indication, about 93% of your potential is never breached...

Why? Because you feel, you act, you consider yourself fixed. Continue reading "Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking your potential. ~ Winston Churchill"
