Most winners in life master one thing in particular: they are astute. Astute: having or showing an ability to accurately assess situations or people.
Accurately assess... as opposed to have an opinion, have a good feel, or guess...
Is that a skill, a capacity, a virtue? What is it and how do you get it?
A have a new "most visited" post, the 31 quotes that give you chills... Why? Because it promises an experience... an experience you crave in the consistently dull and painful life you have.
Wanting to get chills without any other benefits says a lot about you and your life. What does it say? For one: you are a mystery to yourself...
I have said it before... humanity bars its way to evolution by throwing big words around. Continue reading "More on the 10 dark years theory… or why it takes so long to succeed"
Most authors, most gurus, most spiritual/money/prosperity/marketing teachers contributed one distinction to me... if any.
Actually, most didn't... Famous ones, successful ones, amazing ones... nothing. I was left with nothing.
One of these distinctions, by Robert Scheinfeld, is considering that all you see when you look is through the limited perspective of the human mind. The 1%.
But seeing things the only way we can is not the problem. You see what you see. Continue reading "From the limited perspective of the human mind… why you make so many mistakes??"
If investing 10 years in service of learning a profession, learning an art would make you a winner... then there would be a lot of winners. A lot more than there are...
There must be something more that most people don't know or don't do...
...and neither do or know their mentors, their trainers, their managers, their teachers.
Capacities, DNA capacities are invisible. They are the seed level of any ability, of any success.

"They" want you to hope for a miracle... magic, windfall...
And you have been compliant. You buy magical supplements. Start magical diets. Go to magical healers. Buy magical courses.
Magic bullet. You have a storehouse of those.
I recommended to a new client that she sells it to people who still want a magic bullet. She didn't say yes. I guess she still hopes that one day they will magically start working.
I got a deep insight in this kind of thinking when i read the otherwise worthless long book by Laura Knight-Jadczyk. OK, it is not worthless to me, actually they were worth their weight in gold... they are worthless to you. The woman has insight, but mixes it with crap... I took the insights, if you read her stuff, you'll probably eat the crap.
Anyway, what i got is the historical roots of magical thinking.

I am on my eighth round of the 67 steps.
Obviously I am following what I learned when I was nine: you can spend a whole vacation reading a book, or a lifetime listening and working with 67 audios and not get bored with it.
Or the way Bruce Lee says the same thing: I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
I have grown more in these 19 months than in any similar period in my life.
Most people I watch are not present to what they are doing: it is habitual, which means mindless, stuck, plateaued. Continue reading "Is consistency THE winning capacity?"
I just had one of the most productive Sunday Rant call ever... and I just finished the third book in the Freak series, Think Like a Freak.
Because it is about thinking, and because it is about frames it is right up our alley at this point in time. Continue reading "Why your brain doesn’t make you a winner… Or is your brain to blame?"
Being successful as a human
When you look at people, you notice that there are two different ways to be successful:
1. worldly success... and
2. successful as in well rounded, fulfilled, joyful, and loving life.
The two don't happen in the same person too often.
There are notable exceptions. Einstein was one of the exceptions.
Your vibration is a lot more correlated with the human success score than with worldly success score: fame, money, notoriety.
Obviously I train people in human success first, and worldly success second... and I have chosen, for myself, the same.
Why? Because no worldly success compensates for wretchedness.
