I have been observing people for about 33 years. Before that I had my head entirely up my ass… I wouldn’t have seen anything had I looked: I was too eager trying to get to a place where I can stand on my two feet and look.
I am reading a book, The One Thing. Tai Lopez recommended it, but I had been resisting.
But like most of the books Tai recommends, it does have a kernel of gold… Maybe more than one kernel.
One of these is what he says about will power. Quite fascinating and very useful. Continue reading “How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives…”
Charles M. Schwab was one of the ‘robber barons’ of the early 20th century. He was, at the time, one of the richest men in the world. He was president of Bethlehem Steel, but his ambition to become more and more was insatiable.
He hired famed productivity consultant of his time, Ivy Lee… Ivy charged nothing for his service.He requested 15 minutes with each executive of Bethlehem Steel, and said: at the end 90 days (13 weeks) write me a check for what it was worth to you.

Arthur Barry was described by Time as “The slickest second-story man in the East,” truly one of the most famous jewel thieves of all times. 1
In his years of crime, he committed as many as 150 burglaries and stole jewels valued between $5 and $10 million.
He seldom robbed from anyone not listed in the Social Register and often did his work in… get this…

The 67-step program isn’t about money. It’s about living the good life. Whatever that means to you.
If it is being financially free, rich, beautiful, famous, happy, fulfilled… whatever you are willing to work for, that you have a natural inclination, i.e. talent for, you can become.
I did another teacher’s, T. Harv Eker’s course, The Millionaire Mind Intensive twice.
For me the course had one sentence that was instructive: “It is not making the millions of dollars, it who you need to become to earn and have millions of dollars that matters.” 1
Harv subsequently effectively sold me courses, courses that cost me over 30 grands… courses that gave me nothing in addition to that one sentence.
This is important, because this is what I have in mind when I think about today’s spiritual teachers: they teach that doing will create beingness. Or speaking… or thinking…
If your life feels empty in spite of all that’s in it, then you need to look at it and examine it. There is something, a piece of knowledge, is missing… and you are paying the price.
Another saying that really talks to me: the size of your life can be measured with the size of your projects.
But the most important thing is this: you can be doing things, 24/7, but unless what you are doing is hard, challenging, needing you to apply yourself, it is not fulfilling, it doesn’t feel like accomplishment.
Read the footnotes… if you haven’t been reading them, you now know why you are not getting anything out of my posts… 1
The reason people like doing sports is because they can be measuring themselves against something that is bigger than what’s comfortable.
People who watch sports live vicariously through them… but if you look, the fans’ lives are empty. You need to measure yourself against something bigger than what’s comfortable, like watching others play sports.
Simple, hardworking people are happier than you.

And as you know, talking when I have echo, someone who hears me is the most meaningful activity for me.
I did have private clients for massage, and I did it for 16 years… Giving a massage is not meaningful for me. So I picked and chose, and filtered, and screened the people that wanted a massage: If I didn’t feel that there will be a meaningful conversation, that I would be heard, I didn’t take them as a client.
Hey, it’s my life, and my fulfillment is what it is supposed to be organized around.
I am unabashed that what is important to me is the most important thing for me, bar none.
So being more influential, hearing more echo from you is always on my mind, because it is not working. Not working for me.

Financial Freedom: Why Context is decisive, or why your gurus are fake, why they are miserable, and why what they teach is crap
The Money Game 1
One can get caught up in the “money game” on any levels of income. You can even get hooked in its tangles before you make any decision about what to do with your life… as in inherited from your parents, or getting hooked on the perks money gave you through stuff your parents bought you.
No matter when and how you got hooked, you can unhook yourself and be financially free.
What does “financially free” mean?

It is much like saying that someone is wearing glasses. Some glasses come in different colors, sunglasses, prescription glasses, and then there are glasses that are solid with holes in them, to train the eye to fill in the gaps in information.
If your glasses are colored blue, you won’t be able to see blue after a while. Just like water doesn’t exist for the fish, blue won’t exist for you.
The glasses act as filters. Filters allow certain things to pass through, other things won’t be able to make it through. There, the mind, will fill in the gaps in information,just like with the training glasses.
Now, where is this useful knowledge?
First off, it is useful, in my humble opinion, to understand that you read and hear a lot of useful information, that simply doesn’t reach you.
I have a list of affirmations in front of me. the list is from the weekend, the Millionaire Mind Intensive.
When we got back, I promptly started on my 90-day workbook: it had simple exercises for each day.
There was another event on an investment club that I returned to New York (I live 275 miles from NY City). I got there an hour early. I decided to hang out and talk to people as they arrived.
I asked every person I had a chance to talk to if they did the exercises. No one I spoke with did.
>In those 30 days I increased my net worth 13,000 dollars. Others had no results.
Why did I act on the information and why didn’t others?
The answer is simple if you look through the lens of paradigms.

Why An Activator Cannot Change Your Behavior, Only You Can?
What happens when you get an activator downloaded to you? Even though the activator (a set of statements that are worded as commands, and are very similar to affirmations) alters the “terrain” or the balance of power in the sub-conscious, those affirmations will not alter your behavior.
What will alter your behavior?
