Most winners in life master one thing in particular: they are astute. Astute: having or showing an ability to accurately assess situations or people.
Accurately assess... as opposed to have an opinion, have a good feel, or guess...
Is that a skill, a capacity, a virtue? What is it and how do you get it?
A have a new "most visited" post, the 31 quotes that give you chills... Why? Because it promises an experience... an experience you crave in the consistently dull and painful life you have.
Wanting to get chills without any other benefits says a lot about you and your life. What does it say? For one: you are a mystery to yourself...
I have said it before... humanity bars its way to evolution by throwing big words around. Continue reading "More on the 10 dark years theory… or why it takes so long to succeed"
If investing 10 years in service of learning a profession, learning an art would make you a winner... then there would be a lot of winners. A lot more than there are...
There must be something more that most people don't know or don't do...
...and neither do or know their mentors, their trainers, their managers, their teachers.
Capacities, DNA capacities are invisible. They are the seed level of any ability, of any success.

In my weekly coaching call with my only business/marketing student last night, I went deep into the causes of why someone with a degree, why someone who is making a living, cannot move further up the life-satisfaction, life effectiveness scale.
I have found two blatant holes in him, that my guess is shared by all of you, or most of you.
- 1. a total blindness of what gives meaning and therefore the mood for life.
- 2. a total inability to see what is cause and what is effect.
So how do you fix that? You don't.
When you find something that isn't working or isn't working as well as you'd like it to, your knee jerk reaction is to fix it. Or change it. Or stop doing it.
But unless what you found is seed level, you can work till the cows come home, and you will only produce pretense, but not a change.

Your behavior is always consistent with what you see.
And what you see depends 100% of your available capacities.
You don't even look... because you know what is there... you know there is nothing to see.
The difference between a blind person and you is that the blind person knows she cannot see.
Why can't you see? For two reasons: Continue reading "Your behavior is always consistent with what you see… All your mistakes come from here…"
Yesterday I used the free community van to get to two stores I cannot get to easily on my own.
Note: in the illustrations I am not taking sides. I am illustrating that there is confusion and disagreement in what is race, what is racist, what is racism, and what it does is it makes people rigid, lie about what they think, and vote for Trump... ugh.
The driver of the van, PhD in sociology, asked if it bothered me if he continued to listen to NPR radio . It was a public debate in Trump and if he was a racist.
I listened for at least half an hour, and observed that no one bothered to define what they meant by racist. Or what is racism. So the discussion was as if blind people were discussing the color of something... lots of talk. Lots of passion. Very little substance. Continue reading "Equality, racist, collusion, big words you throw around"
I did the first session of the Muscle testing course, version 2 yesterday.
There was a lot of things to unlearn and relearn for the students, things can and do prevent one from being effective in life.
Tons of the memes, everything and its opposite, no clarity.
What is Source. Where is the knowledge coming from when we muscle test for the truth? Is truth stagnant, the same today as it was yesterday? Does anything remain the same as it was yesterday?
The most successful people on earth know that only physical laws, the laws of physics apply here, and you can deal with the rest as appearances. A mirage. Maya. Not solid.
This article is about personal evolution... going from where, how, who you are today to a higher level, a higher organization where you can be, have, do more.
It's November 10, and the ground is covered with snow where I live. My hands are cold, I am contemplating putting on my typing gloves: gloves that the tip of the finger is cut off so I can type.
I started to keep my house cold in the winter a few years ago, but went all hogs with it last winter: my thermostat is set to 47 degrees (9 degrees Celsius) day and night, and I have a heating pad under my desk and a heating pad on the wall about two meters from my right shoulder on the wall in my office. I also have a heating pad in the bathroom that I turn on when I plan to take a shower.
We, humans, talks a lot about IQ. And genes. And intelligent and not intelligent.
I assert that we don't know what we are talking about. Your IQ has little to do with the quality of your life.
We don't discern cause and effect... and this is only just one area where we don't.
OK, so back to intellectually slothful... I expect to lose 99% of you here... Continue reading "Intellectually slothful"
This article has long been in the making.
It's about our inability to tell what is the cause of something. Or even if there is a causal relationship between two things...
Between tithing and a sudden windfall... between lying and breaking your leg... between eating peanuts and feeling better/worse... Is there a cause and effect relationship there? If you pray: do people get better? If you spend time on a reiki person's table... do you feel better because someone paid attention to you, or was there even energy there? Questions, questions and no answers.
If it were just you and other consumers of information who don't know the answers, that would be fine with me, but with the proliferation of the internet, and with everyone and their brother writing, publishing, opinionating, sounding off, repeating things and their opposite, our sense of who to trust, what to believe is at an all-time low.
It used to be that we trusted doctors, and we died feeling that the doctor did their best... and their best was not a match to the task.
And we were right. We did the best we knew to do. Continue reading "Can you be well, can you get well if you don’t know if something is true or not?"
The first 42 letters of the Torah, (The Old Testament) are powerful tools for creation. Each line of the 7-line prayer consist of 6 letters, and each line has a different energy, removing time between cause and effect, infusing your being with the power of creation, purifying, removing ego, etc.
Yahuda Berg wrote a great book about it, and the flash video explains it and shows how to do it correctly to accomplish what you aim for. click here for the video
