“First things first.”
Grandpa used to say that, he was a wise and well respected man in the community. And he was well accomplished too. My friend who was a F-4 pilot, he LIVED by that rule. And he survived a lot of things he shouldn’t, both in the cockpit, and in daily life. So it’s worth repeating, “First things first.”
“First things first. How are you perceiving the world?” If you take care of this bit, the rest of the story becomes much easier.
Let me share 2 quick examples of what I mean. Feel free to apply liberally.
1. To my friends who are in the NLP – Pick Up Artist world, if you want to become a babe magnet – instead of having to be a babe manipulator – here is your first thing. STOP putting on women the responsibility to keep you satisfied and your self esteem in existence. Then START learning how to actually put your ATTENTION on the woman you are with. Learn how to put attention on her, and I can help you do that, and you’ll be a babe magnet. Almost no man can consistently let his attention really settle on a woman, those who can, give to them tremendously.
2. To my friends who are trying to succeed in biz – both online and off, STOP focusing on your biz, START focusing on helping customers, potential customers, and clients with something they are willing to give you money for. Great ideas are great ideas, and profitable ideas are profitable ideas. Sometimes they overlap, often they don’t. Learn the difference.
So, we’ve solved relationships, and money so far today. What else could we do, in our short time together?
- STOP thinking it’s about what we think it’s about.
- START putting the focus where it really matters.
Real life awareness of what you are, and what’s going on (they are functionally the same, but that’s another story) is priceless, and worth MEGATONS more than any THINKING.
STOP THINKING. — START NOTICING.
See the pattern?
PS: What you are is “the flame”. How you experience “you” and “your world” is through clouds. Everything I am writing about here is about “your clouds”.
“Learn how to optimize your clouds, and you get to discover that you are far above them, like the sun in the sky.”
