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?
I 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.
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.
Almost all bad feelings you have come as a result of your delusional self, your precious "I" is scared of being devalued.
It is as if you were a gold plated coin pretending to be solid gold, and life would be continually threatening you to reveal your fakeness.
I used to be like you. I felt that there was a big gap between my accomplishments and my abilities... and maybe there was.
But most importantly, every little error, every little mistake I made or even just faced!!! jerked me down a hellish path... filling me with dread, and fear, and remorse, and regret, and who even knows words for those horrible feelings.
And mistakes? I made plenty.
I misunderstood, I jumped into conclusion, I tried to do something too fast before I even saw what the heck I was supposed to do... Put my foot in the mouth... lol.
99% of the people I measure have a TLB 1... meaning that they have NO mental toughness. Meaning that at the moment of threat, discomfort, challenge, they make a beeline to something easy, pleasurable, and safe.
But all the things you have ever wanted are on the other side of difficult, uncomfortable, challenging, hard, or maybe even painful.
