When it comes to your life, Are you a race car driver or a hop-into-the car grocery shopper
Said in another way: If Your Life Were A Car, Who Is Driving Your Life?
This article is about your relationship with your life. It is fundamental, it is at the root of you never amounting to all you can be, it is at the root of why most people can only evolve a little bit in a lifetime (many go backwards!)
Mastering this area of life is the difference between a winner and a loser, and it is so subtle, that without someone pointing it out to you, you would notice no difference.
Let’s start at the beginning: in life you accomplish some stuff (right?) and don’t accomplish some other stuff. You win some races, and you lose some others.
Changing your future: what is the challenge on the seed level?
In the last article I have set up the issue: you need to know where you are and you need to decide where you are heading if you want a future by design.
To actually get there, you need to design your path, you need to have the skills and the knowledge and the decision making ability and willingness.
But that is just the surface: you need to change your undertow, the underworld, the root of your world, on the seed level.
If I told you that your life, your projects are like a tree. They are designed to bear a certain fruit… and what that fruit is comes from the seed level. And the seed level tells the seed what type of roots to develop…. But
You see, most people, in self improvement, spend all their time trying to work on the fruit level, trying to hang a different fruit on the tree, wish, pray for a different type of fruit, repeat affirmations, etc. make mind movies, but that does not change the results because it doesn’t change the seed level.
What do you need to do to change the results?
If I limited you to an orchard: what would you do? You would do either of two things:
1. plant a different tree from a different stock
2. infuse a different stock into the roots you already have, but just barely above root level.
This is going to be a mind-bender, and at the end of it you’ll come up a lot smarter, and with a lot more power over your life… interested?
It is all about mindset! Context is decisive… and what the heck is a backdrop?
Let’s start with backdrop. Why? Because it’s the easiest to see what’s going on.
I say that the backdrop is more important than what happens in the foreground.
Someone says something to you and you are hurt.
Your boss assigns someone else to an important assignment.
Your experiment at making money with your first product is a flop.
You continually have trouble and emergency in your life.
The above statements are the foreground.
Depending on your mental attitude (mindset) you say it’s bad, or it’s good, or you have no opinion.
