I have a friend who is around 4 years older than me, he is in his 70’s. We have been talking once a week for about seven years.
He would like to retire, but his business is in decline, and there is nothing to sell: he is a glorified self-employed person.
Since I have known him, he bought about 15 money making programs, only to drop them after a weak attempt, after losing money with it, or even without trying.

I have been pondering something that has been really bothering me. I have diagnosed it 90% accurately, but I have no idea how to change it.
And that is the cultural shift towards avoiding work.
I first woke up to it when my favorite teacher, Robert Plank, called it a four letter word, and avoided using it.
The weird and disorienting fact was this: Robert loved getting things done. Actually really loved it. So it was the word, somehow, that appalled him. He lives in California… I thought maybe it had something to do with it.
But since then I realized that it is all over the place.
The media teaches us that work is ugly, or not necessary, or if you are smart you don’t have to work… and today any type of work is included. Even school work…

Correct Diagnosis is 50% of the Cure in any area of your life
In this article I am going to show an area of my life where diagnostic skills and tools have saved the day, and in fact proved to be 90% of the cure.
The process of growth is not linear. It is more like layer by layer. No matter where you are now, in order to get to the next level, you need to completely explore the level or layer where you are.
I have been relative successful for a while now, and like any other “normal” human being, I had the illusion that I have arrived to the place where it is smooth sailing from hereon.
The mind will always think that. Whatever is the newest experience, the mind will jump into conclusion and declare that life is going to be like this from here onward.
When you screw something up, the mind tells you that you are a lost cause and you’ll never going to succeed. When you do something right, the mind tells you that you are the best, and you can now expect the best.
I’ve been telling you over and over that the mind is a stupid machine, but it is one thing to understand, and it’s a whole other thing to discredit the mind, actively, when it says anything bombastic and summary like that.

Be Nice! I love you but… You are rude on the calls, where is the Heaven on Earth that you promise?
From My Mailbox:
I already love you and care for you bc i can feel your heart…way big. The challenge is that the ego is still getting in the way of your delivering the Heaven on Earth and your special talents bringing down energy.
The meditations are rather distracting and the tone you offer to the participants is a turn off.
My wife is not going to be getting on any more bc it was more unsettling (the demeanor with some girl on the call and others) than beneficial.
I am telling you this bc if you are like me you will process this and come up with a more loving solution for your meditations. I felt the same thing Tuesday and my interest weaned in what can truly be a Heaven on Earth. Please understand this is offered with love and not really interested in challenging you to help you grow..just how and what my wife observed. Love

I “met” my business/marketing teacher, Robert Plank, 37 years my junior, red-headed punk programmer genius at the time, in early 2009.
I wanted to learn php programming from him, because I didn’t know what I wanted to do in life, so learning programming sounded like a good idea.
I had been learning marketing, mindset, everything and anything… when you don’t know where you are going, every path takes you there… lol.
I remember being on the first webinar with him. I didn’t know I was an empath and I could feel the tension between the two partners like my own, and I was rooting for Robert. He stammered, he talked to fast, he was eager and loved teaching!
I could not learn anything in the first course, nothing in the second course, ditto the third course, but I was coming back.
Then on the fourth course I could do three out of the 10 assignments, and I knew I found a home.
Doing the assignments is both a capacity issue and a mindset issue.

Why is it that you look at a successful person and even if you copy all their actions, even if you copy their attitude the way they tell you, you won’t be able to duplicate their success?
I have been slacking off growing, i.e. didn’t do much to grow, and I noticed. Not for a long time, maybe a week or two, but I have started to notice. Just like athletes notice the imperceptible signs of muscle atrophy and weakening when they are on vacation.
It is very easy to go to this mode… easier than to go back to growth mode.
It’s easy, because 99% of the population is there, at any one time. Most people over 18, as a matter of fact, and most people under 18… lol, not funny.
