When you are fixing something, the solution becomes the next, bigger problem

Human history has gone from problems to bigger problems throughout most of its 200 thousand years.

What is fixing?

Fixing needs something to be wrong. Wrong is a systemic judgment, cultural and personal. It is never true in reality... one could say: there is never anything wrong in reality.

Dying is not wrong, dying is dying. Being sick is not wrong, it is being sick. Being slow, ugly, lazy is not wrong, it is just being slow, ugly, or lazy.

This means that any and all fixing is working on something that doesn't need fixing... so the fixing adds a new wrinkle to things that isn't supposed to be there... the new wrinkle is not natural. It takes you further away from your natural state: joy, productivity, intelligence, wellness. Continue reading "When you are fixing something, the solution becomes the next, bigger problem"

Can you predict the future? Can you pick the next big winner?

My last article, the shotgun method has missed its target... few even understood what the heck I was talking about.

Regardless, I am continuing on the theme, because this is one of the stumbling block for most of you... so although you don't know what is eating your lunch... although you have no idea how you are screwing up, I do, and I am here to help you till you get it. I already have a third article in the pipeline... ;-/

About a month ago I finally and suddenly got ready to pick a marketing mentor. Terry Dean is his name... and as soon as I can afford it, I'll also book one-on-one coaching with him. It's expensive... Continue reading "Can you predict the future? Can you pick the next big winner?"

Knowledge… how accurate is it? How safe are you, given the level of knowledge today?

I was looking for pictures for "accurate knowledge" on google... hardly any results. Then I looked for "garbage in garbage out, and I hit the jackpot"... I will put some of the best pictures at the end of this article... they are really funny... But now, let me get to the knowledge article.... OK, here you go:

I am reading Aristotle.

Why? It's an excellent wake-up call. It knocks you conscious... It has knocked me conscious!

2400 years ago, when Aristotle lived, people, scientists, knew very little about much of anything. They weren't less inquisitive, they didn't have less theories, they didn't argue less. They probably argued more...

They just had theories that are quite ridiculous by today's standards, knowing what we know today.

Here are a few examples... Be prepared to laugh... Continue reading "Knowledge… how accurate is it? How safe are you, given the level of knowledge today?"

I make decisions really slowly. One may even accuse me of procrastination…

slow decisions vs fast decisionsLet me correct that: I consider most decisions I make a test. Experiment. Rough draft. 1

Huh?

Yeah, I thought so. I thought it will sound foreign... But you will learn something, through this article, that is not common knowledge... and it is even new to me!

Decisions are an expensive activity for the brain. Any choice is. Important choices and unimportant choices equally use up a renewable resource, for ease of language, I'll call glycogen, although it may not be that.

You wake up with more of that glycogen... it replenished itself during the night... If your sleep is restless, then you won't have your full stores of glycogen: ever since that nurse moved to the next house, my sleep is restless. Even with the audios... Mind you, I have tried to sleep without the audio, and slept a total of 58 minutes that night. With the audio I wake up a few times, and dream or solve puzzles, or write articles in my mind, but I sleep and wake up rested. So...

And yet, I have less glycogen than if I slept through the night without working in my sleep...

But I digress... What I really want to teach you is... Continue reading "I make decisions really slowly. One may even accuse me of procrastination…"

Love feedback or else… Make it a feedback loop…

The way to find the strait and narrow of happiness (See The Anna Karenina Principle) is to watch the feedback 1 ... and self-correct. 2

Yesterday I added integrity to the starting point measurements. so far all people I measured ranked on 3 out of 100. Wow.

I had an exchange of text messages with a guy, whose vibration was low, and that is all he asked for. His vibration.

He is a Polish person, part of the Starseed Global Alliance to save the earth or something. To me it sounds like a computer game... to him: it is reality. 3 Continue reading "Love feedback or else… Make it a feedback loop…"

Why only 1~2% of participants produce results in a course? Any course… And why you are not among them?

It's Sunday. I hung up my Sunday Rants call 90 minutes ago. I spent these 90 minutes watching marketing sales videos... as I would like to get better at marketing.

And it suddenly hit me... It hit me why no course, no program, no video course, audio course or group coaching can get much result, my program or others'.

I remember a few years ago when famed marketers, like Frank Kern, approached Tony Robbins to get some coaching on how to make people actually achieve the results they promised them in their sales letters. The meager results were bothering them. No matter how good, how detailed the course was, how much handholding they gave, only a fragment of the participants produced results.

What is the difference between people who actually raise their vibration and people who don’t?

Humanity can be divided to two groups. The dividing line is the vibration of 200... the level of responsibility and integrity.

Responsibility is a view of life where it is up to you. What? Everything. And when it is up to you, then you are never a victim, although things may happen to you, thing may be done to you, and yet you are not a victim. Because you have something to say in the matter... and you don't say that you are a victim.

Responsibility is a dividing line, and I fully expect that 99 out of 100 of my readers, including my regular readers, my clients, my students, think responsibility is either a duty (you have to, need to, or should) or blame (you had to, you needed to, you should have... and you didn't!) Continue reading "What is the difference between people who actually raise their vibration and people who don’t?"

How much energy do you need to create the good life and maintain it?

how much energy do you need to create the good life and maintain it?If you want to grow as a person, or grow anything worth growing, you need energy. Lots of it. Continuously.

Physical law says that systems, unless they are very highly organized closed systems, like the brain, will fall apart with time (entropy)... Your life is NOT highly organized, because it is not a closed system. So in order for it to stay organized and effective, it needs a ton of energy to be injected, continually.

Left alone, your life starts falling apart. This is what happens during holidays and vacations.

Injecting energy into your life is going to be a crucial distinction you need to learn.

Success leaves traces… as in footprints in the sand

Success literature, books, articles, movies about success... are they worth following?

Success leaves traces... as in footprints in the sand

If you look at what people did, how they did it, the tracks converge and become the "strait and narrow', exactly the way Leo Tolstoy says it in the Anna Karenina Principle.

So there is no wonder that I am finding articles nowadays that I could have written myself, if I were a success writer.

There are three types of success writers and success coaches.

Context is decisive… or why your dreams only exist in words… not in reality

You have freedom to create any context you wish. There are only two kinds of contexts:

1. Empowering Context
2. Disempowering Context

Empowering means, simply, that it gives you power to go in the direction you meant to go. It is like the wind behind your back.

Disempowering, as in anything negative, what takes you off your path, hinders you, takes your power away, makes you doubt, etc.

The Anna Karenina principle 1 applies here:

Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
