I have been toying with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course…

I have been toying, playing with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course...

What has been blocking me is the kinds of people who want it.

You see effortless is a lie... although efforting, per se, 1 is unnecessary.

Efforting is a concept. But doing things, learning things, unlearning things, is sometimes hard work. And for most people, who are attracted to the Effortless Abundance idea, work is a dirty word. Continue reading "I have been toying with the idea of teaching the Effortless Abundance Course…"

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?"

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?"

Scarcity, abundance… big words… again. What are they, and how can you get into abundance?

Both are context words. Neither talks about the stuff that is inside the context... inside the wrapper. The wrapper tells you how to look at the content.

It has nothing to do with the stuff, or the quantity of it. It can be great, it can be plenty... the context, scarcity or abundance will tell you what to feel, what to think, what to do.

Why? Because context is decisive.

You can have plenty inside the context of scarcity, and feel that you don't have enough. Enough time, enough stuff, enough happiness, enough whatever... Continue reading "Scarcity, abundance… big words… again. What are they, and how can you get into abundance?"

It is the week of Thanksgiving… Why can’t you feel gratitude? Why your thanksgiving is hollow?

This morning I received an email from a young man who paid me to measure his starting point measurements.

He could be speaking for you.

I need to take better care to my physical body. Like you said, drinking more water is the first step.

I don't take care of my body, and I can't understand why.

I feel like I'm missing gratitude. I hate to say it but I don't feel grateful, and I don't understand why.

Gratitude probably will come up to everyone, at least in the United States, where this week is Thanksgiving week... and you are supposed to be grateful. Or pretend that you are.

The more lavish your Thanksgiving, the more money you spend, the more food on the table, the more you do it to cover up that you are pretending. And pretense is the killer of the spirit.

Context is decisive. And yet 99% of humans cannot wrap their minds around the context.

You create your own reality with the context. And inside that context you look at things... And the context, unless attended to, is mostly creating a reality that you don't want. But because you don't know how to create context, that is what you created. bummer, eh?

Context is decisive. And yet 99% of humans cannot wrap their minds around the context. Context is invisible... and most people can't see it. But...

The quality of your life, your life experience doesn't depend on the content, it only depends on the context. On the invisible.

The previous article should have explained it all, but it probably wasn't enough. So let's poke around this topic some more.

Most of us don't live in a world of our own design, or unless you consider all the voices in your head, it is the voices' design, not yours.

Are you building your self-esteem around things that hurt you?

shackledI am going to quote an email from Tai Lopez, because it is so useful.

He talks about a conversation with the founder of Quest bars... A protein bar I would never touch... but the guy is smart, at least what he says here is very smart, and I wish I had said what he said: (I got stuck at a few sentences, so I changed them around hoping they make more sense that way)

When I asked him what was ONE lesson he learned while scaling his business at a rate of 57,000% in just 3 years, this is what he told me:

"It matters a lot what you build your self-esteem around. Most people build their self-esteem around having the right answer, being right, being good, being smart -- all of those things are a death trap.

The word of Good and Evil, and other memes. How the wrong yearns to be fixed…

I field a lot of emails in a day. And some of those emails are goldmines, because they reveal the wrong ideas that people entertain, the wrong premises on which they build their actions.

In this article I will go deep, root level, and I will also go higher... because wrong premises can infect you on all levels.

Here is the latest:

Q: Can I listen to the Energizer Audio through headsets for 10 minutes a day to raise my cell hydration?

MVP… Life’s most valuable player? Minimum viable product? What is the connection?

Confession time: I have a very small window where I experience being physically well. Or emotionally well. I am not very sturdy.

I have a tiny tolerance to heat, a small tolerance to cold, a small tolerance to running on empty.

Especially painful and unsettling for me is running on empty... while you, while most people spend their daily energy allotment on trivial things, and then run on fumes all day.

For me, that is unbearable, intolerable, hell. Continue reading "MVP… Life’s most valuable player? Minimum viable product? What is the connection?"

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…"
