I went grocery shopping today on my own. I was carrying some 20 lbs of groceries up the steps to get home.
I ran into Leo, my musician friend. I explained to him that carrying those 20 lbs of groceries illustrated to me what it was like to climb the steps a year ago, when I was about 20 lbs heavier. In 18 months I shed 40 lbs.
He said: Losing 40 pounds is hard work.
I said "no it isn't..." He wanted to know how, and I told him that is what I get paid the big bucks for. He laughed, but it got me thinking. Continue reading "Reframing: is losing weight hard? is it hard work? or is it something else?"
This article is about personal evolution... going from where, how, who you are today to a higher level, a higher organization where you can be, have, do more.
It's November 10, and the ground is covered with snow where I live. My hands are cold, I am contemplating putting on my typing gloves: gloves that the tip of the finger is cut off so I can type.
I started to keep my house cold in the winter a few years ago, but went all hogs with it last winter: my thermostat is set to 47 degrees (9 degrees Celsius) day and night, and I have a heating pad under my desk and a heating pad on the wall about two meters from my right shoulder on the wall in my office. I also have a heating pad in the bathroom that I turn on when I plan to take a shower.
Last night I spent a few hours (3, to be exact.) listening to Jim Rohn, famed self-development coach. Funny, entertaining, brilliant.
He said all the right words. He made sense to a lot of people.
But I bet if we scratch the numbers, he made just as little results as everyone who is trying to cause individual human evolution.
I'll tell you in a little bit why... but first let me tell you what he says: Continue reading "How do you catch what you can’t see? How do you change into someone who can?"
How I use the energy that I download during the Days of Power
After I moved out of my parents' home, I met this guy who became my boy friend. My first boy friend.
He was a philosophy student, son of a well known philosopher.
I didn't understand a word they were talking. When I typed up his thesis I bastardized some of the words, because I had no idea they weren't typos. They didn't look like, they weren't regular words.
Here I am 46 years later, and if you asked me what profession I have, I would have to tell you that I am closest to being a philosopher. Boggles the mind. Continue reading "Epigenetics… the path of human evolution: from human to human being"
The Michelangelo Method and your money blueprint
In a previous article I told you about the three-phase methodology of changing your money blueprint, that will allow you to make, keep, and enjoy more financial benefits than your money blueprint currently allows you to have.
The 3 steps were:
- The first part of the process is to diagnose.
- The second part of the process is to shift.
- The third part of the process is to create a new set-point.
What are not spoken of in the plan are the common actions we all do that backfire and make all our actions ineffective, and work against our best interest.
I dubbed this method the Michelangelo Method because it has its emphasis on removing these actions, thoughts, and beliefs, in one word the causes, that work against the masterpiece you were meant to be. By removing these active elements (the part of you that is not the masterpiece), you'll be left with your masterpiece... just like Michelangelo was left with David after he chipped away everything that was not David.
