How will increasing the accuracy of your vocabulary lead you to a fuller experience of life, joy, purpose?

Yesterday I had a conversation where I had a number of opportunities to see how and what way your unclarity, your vocabulary, shows up, not as a theory, but as a reality.

How it prevents you from seeing reality, or hearing what is being said.

It was somewhat new to me, so if it was new to me, it will be really new to you.

Your vocabulary shows the size of your world

Your vocabulary mirrors your clarity. The opposite of clarity is unclear or foggy. (Brain fog?)

One of the Starting Point Measurements is your vocabulary/clarity measure.

People are stunned by their low numbers. They shouldn't be. Their results in life, in all four main areas of life are consistent with their clarity. Low.

When you are not clear, it is like you are bringing a knife to a gun fight. It is like you use tools that are unsuited for the job. It is like you are fighting windmills. It is the state of "for you everything is the same as everything else, except that not always."

Sticky point: Being able to tell the self apart from other things, the not-self.

Being able to tell the self apart from other things, the not-self.

You are not your feelings, not your thoughts, not your history. Not even what you do, or what you have, or what you have achieved!

I didn't realize that this is such a big issue, collapsing all these and calling it "you".

This is the source of unclarity, and ultimately it is the source of the delusional self and misery. Utter misery.

What am I talking about?

One aspect of clarity is to be able to tell the person from their actions. The person from their feelings. The person from their story or history. The person from what they have done. The person from everything else...

It seems that at a low level of clarity (low vibration) this isn't obvious.

Rocks, pebbles, and sand… what is your life organized around?

rock pebbles sand

Some of my students pondered my article from yesterday and asked themselves: why am I not reading?

One found something that may be the reason billions of people don't read: by the time they would get to reading, they are too tired. They are spent.

The priority they assign to reading is low.

Normal lives are full of stuff to do that some meme says: you must do. Take a shower every day, for example. Many people even wash their hair every day. Read the newspaper. Do your shopping when you need something. Drive your kid to activities.

Cut coupons. Check facebook, your email, chat, watch cat videos. 1

What is the number in your starting point measurements that most predicts how effective you are in life?

Theory induced blindness

I like to call the phenomenon of not being able to see what doesn't agree with your theory of life: theory induced blindness. A more popular and better known label for it is "confirmation bias".

You only hear what you agree with. Or more precisely, you only see what you recognize. And you only consider what you recognize as agreeing with your world view.

I see this every day with people who turn to me, who I coach, who I give a free strategy session to.

And I saw this in this video. 1 Continue reading "What is the number in your starting point measurements that most predicts how effective you are in life?"

How old is your child self that is running your life to the ground?

What is an adult, what is a child... and does your ego-state (Child, Parent, Adult) influence how much money you have, how much love you have, how healthy you are? 1

In the starting point measurements I measure (#19) To what degree you have access to your adult capacities. 2 or asked in another way, how much does your adult run your life? The more adult the more results...

And how much is the child running your life, how much is it running your life to the ground?

Continue reading "How old is your child self that is running your life to the ground?"

I want to be like the Soup Nazi

Why am I such a Nazi when it comes to who I am willing to work with?

Remember the soup Nazi? Who ran his soup takeout shop like a prison camp? And people lined up and waited patiently to be given soup... that was so good, and so hard to come by, they were willing to earn it... I want to be like the soup Nazi.

Like everyone, my energy is finite. I can't whip out extra at the drop of a hat... I am human. Continue reading "I want to be like the Soup Nazi"

From the limited perspective of the human mind… why you make so many mistakes??

Most authors, most gurus, most spiritual/money/prosperity/marketing teachers contributed one distinction to me... if any.

Actually, most didn't... Famous ones, successful ones, amazing ones... nothing. I was left with nothing.

One of these distinctions, by Robert Scheinfeld, is considering that all you see when you look is through the limited perspective of the human mind. The 1%.

But seeing things the only way we can is not the problem. You see what you see. Continue reading "From the limited perspective of the human mind… why you make so many mistakes??"

Pinpoint accuracy or shotgun method?

There are really two types of people when it comes to making more money: one group will chase the mirage, the lottery approach, winning, betting on schemes... and the other, the tiny group that sees that making more money is a natural fallout of becoming worth a damn. 1

I am interested in talking to the second group, the tiny group.

You see, knowing that you should become worth a damn is nice and dandy... but knowing with pinpoint accuracy where you aren't... what it is that you need to do next to increase your worth a damn factor is crucial.

Life is holographic. Maybe it is the Universe... but who am I to just repeat something I heard... I don't know about the Universe. But I do know about Life. Continue reading "Pinpoint accuracy or shotgun method?"

What is the truth about the 10 dark years, 10,000 hours and 10,000 experiments

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. 1

Capacities, DNA capacities are invisible. They are the seed level of any ability, of any success.
