None of it.
It’s that the rules that govern human behavior and the rules that govern the Universe are very different.
“Laws of the Universe” here we go again….
I get it.
Anyone that knows me knows my affinity towards woo woo ideas.
My dad used to tell everyone: “That boy ain’t right!”
But, if what I see is what people think is is right, and I’d rather be wrong.
There is a better way of living.
The way we show up to life matters.
Each day can make a significant impact on you, and send a ripple through time via the connections you share with other people.
As we interact with one another, we grow in surprising directions.
The problem is, no one taught us how to do this consciously, and openly.
Most of us are afraid to show anyone…
…even our family our true nature.
Countless People throughout history have tried teach this stuff.
Plato talked about shadows on a cave.
Stoics spoke of ways to tame the animal nature.
The New Testament.
And several that followed.
You have the modern age of self help starting in the 20s and evolving til today.
All the way through history, teachers in every age have discussed the same basic principles with a twist or two to match the times.
The problem the stuff they teach you in the self-help, fitness, or financial training courses and books…
…the principles are there… the strategies are sound… and they still don’t work for everyone!
Why is that?
Are these people all scumbag snake oil salesmen?
I suspect not.
I’ve met my fair share of gurus in all of those fields and they’re mostly very sincere and caring people.
Some of them are con-men… others use conman tactics to sell you, because they believe that what they teach you will change your life… and possibly change the world.
And they’re not wrong. Some of the programs have life altering affects, I just wish they were as good at selling the next action step after the sale.
You already have all the tools, you have the answers you need to get to the next step, when you take it, you’ll survey reality and figure out the next step.
….not easy… but it’s simple, it goes something like this.
- START WHERE YOU ARE
- KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
- MAP THE STEPS TO GET WHAT YOU WANT
- BREAK DOWN THE STEPS IN MANAGEABLE CHUNKS
- WORK THE PLAN AND SHOW UP ON TIME
This isn’t new to anyone.
So, why do you think it’s so hard to get past a certain point in life or business?
Why do you think, with all these strategies that will work, is it so difficult to stick with the program?
Most people will fall into one of two camps
The program is broken — I am broken.
What’s worse is that if the program works for one guy and it doesn’t work for you, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll feel defective.
“It works if you work it” might ring true, but if you try to “Work it” on a level you’ve not earned, you’ll fail.
What do I mean by that?
In surfing you need to know your skill level or you’ll end up dead.
If you’re just starting out, it’s a really good idea to get in the whitewash.
You just push the board, jump on it and belly ride it a little so you body gets a feel for how the board moves.
Progress to your knees, then you try to stand up… all in the whitewash before heading out near the other surfers.
Imagine being at that level.
Would you want to paddle out with pro-surfers on double overhead waves in shallow shark infested water?
You gotta have a really good assessment of your own skill level and surf where you’re least likely to die.
So, that’s the first step really.
Know who you are.
I’ll walk you through some exercises to help as we move along.
