One of my principles is from the TV ad for the HairClub for Men.
The man talking says, I paraphrase: I so much liked the company that I bought it. I am not only the owner, I am also a client.
I am also not just the teacher but also the student. Not just the owner but also a client.
And, of course, when you are a student, as your status, and use what you are given, recently The Sight, and the Whole Brain Method, you get insights, results, ideas that stun you… Well, they stunned me.
There is a lot of talk about emotional intelligence, the keyword and some images bring a lot of people to my site. They all leave without ever buying anything, ever really learning anything.
The Playground has been my favorite program where I attempted to take people from wherever they were to Heaven’s gate… and maybe beyond.
It’s main principle is that you made up stuff at an early in life incident, stuff about yourself, about people, about life, about what you need… and what you didn’t get.
You called that wrong… and you have been trying to fix it all your life. So your life is still about that thing. That injustice, that unfairness, that thing that happened to you, that was done to you, that was wrong.
Why do I prefer to read fiction, instead of what everyone says I should read: non-fiction, someone talking ABOUT something?
In my recent conversation I have realized something important: people not only have a narrow cone of vision, they don’t even know where else they could be looking other than where they are already looking.
I realized that looking is a skill. It comes from someone taking you by the hand and takes you to places you would not think to go, and maybe even point out what you could look at, what you could get curious about.
But not by talking about it… but by going there with you.
A minor miracle happened yesterday morning… I found that one of my students who had willfully turned off The Sight capacity, unexpectedly allowed it to stay on. Or maybe it was a major miracle… we shall see.
I assert that what was underneath of that miracle is that I suggested that he can be polite when asks someone to back off and let him speak his piece.
He saw that he never looked to see if it was possible. He had only seen that to get something, you need to be haughty, bombastic, loud, rigid, forceful… and his sight got stuck there.
I have been looking at the traffic that comes to my site… and 99% of the people who come, leave empty handed.
Most people want to make more money. I don’t have what they want… I could only have what they need… so I have had nothing to offer them. I have thought of doing a money course… but have discarded it… It feels inauthentic for me to teach about money, given how mediocre my income is.
What you don’t know that you don’t know is really your blind spot. I have, must have, a big blind spot that I can’t, don’t want to, am afraid to make more money than is necessary to survive.
It’s not necessarily a lack of knowledge, or lack of work. It is that something stops me when the going gets good…
