A long held assessment of mine that I was a lousy business coach fall apart.
I have tried my hand on business coaching many times in the past 40 years, and every time I hated it. So I didn't even gave myself an opportunity to do it badly... I fired the clients after one or two sessions.
Now, what has changed that I don't think of myself as a bad business coach?
One of the skills you need to build is to eat right.
The information out there is faulty.
Just like the person who commented on my site this morning, people, who are clueless, misguided, delusional, have as much right to post on the internet as people with legitimate knowledge. And they do... in droves.
It is as if you went to a school where the teachers were volunteers from all walks of life, and you can't tell the difference between what they teach and what is so.
When you want to make sure you only eat what is on your food list, I suggest that you don't have anything in your cupboards that you should not eat.
But what should you do if you are always distracted, click-baited on the Internet, and therefore never amount to much? Never amounting to much is a version of being fat, obese, a lump of fat... in a way.
If I could stand on the rooftop and yell it to every person who visits my site, I would have a mailing list that has eliminated the weak, the slothful, the unable to think for themselves crowd.
So, what is the "famous" law of attraction myth and what are the common characteristics of the people who believe in it?
In the New Thought philosophy, the law of attraction is the belief that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life. The teaching is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from "pure energy", and that through the process of "like energy attracting like energy" a person can improve their own health, wealth and personal relationships.
The concept of law of attraction received criticism in skeptical essays, such as Robert Todd Carroll's The Skeptic's Dictionary.
Law of attraction is an example of a pseudoscience.
Healing should mean "getting you well", and on the 13th floor of your being: it is.
But humanity lives on the 14th and the 15th floor... the Tree of Knowledge, and there healing means something entirely different. It means that someone who is a "healer" does woowoo and then whatever was bothering you goes away.
Not going to happen. But people are seeking healing, want to be healers, so I am changing the words... and of course a ton of people who this way can keep on dreaming.
I changed my site's heading from healing to "getting you well" and the quality of the people changed DRAMATICALLY! Who would have thought? I was guided to change... but I surely didn't expect that I was going to rid myself of the wannabe's and the secondhanders.
The words sound similar, but the meaning, the emotional meaning in today's "culture" is vastly different.
I have been doing, for the past 4-5 hours, what I haven't done, ever, since I've been writing articles.
The game has changed, and I cannot speak my mind as I used to: Free Speech, the First Amendment, hasn't been officially lifted, but it will be... all signs point to a police state... a racist country... fascism.
So it is dangerous to speak... already. Articles on the internet are there for the duration...
The other reason I have been thinking is this: a strategy is needed to turn around the unfortunate coming to power of the Rich and uncaring.
And it seems to me that strategy is the weak point of humanity... people can only think one or maybe two steps ahead... no chess masters outside of chess...
I went to my chiropractor today: my neck was stuck.
I took a ride with the community center van. On the way back the driver of the van gave me feedback on myself: eager. As in eager beaver... busy body, annoying, rushing people. (I was early in the morning, and I was waiting for him outside when he came to pick me up. I meant to make it easier and faster for him, but that is not how it landed... obviously.)
