Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking our potential. ~ Winston Churchill

Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking YOUR potential.
How much potential you have? Except for one person, Elon Musk, the Tesla guy, everyone is only using less than 10% of their potential. He stands out with a whopping 11%.

How much potential remains dormant in you? If my example is any indication, about 93% of your potential is never breached…

Why? Because you feel, you act, you consider yourself fixed.

You never stop needing to heal…

What is Meaning Healing?

It is transcending suffering, physical, emotional, intellectual… any suffering.

Why do you need healing? you ask. If you don’t… then you are lucky. Most people do. In fact I don’t know a single person who doesn’t… but, of course, you may be the exception.

No matter how you grew up, how good people your parents were, or other people, or your peers, you got banged up. Hurt.

Being hurt is an experience.

Did you get hurt in reality? Not necessarily. But as long as you live in an unreality where your emotions tell you what is happening, you will remain miserable… and hurt… and suffering.

The introduction of the occurrence mental model you want to get rid of

This article was removed from Medium.com… I guess it offended a “star” there…

The person whose articles inspired this one has 10 active predatory genes…

In my next article, the one I am working on, I’ll ponder about that high number… As I just did, in my Sunday call with an old friend who is like the perfect mirror to me…

I don’t publish those calls for general consumption: they are a tad gossipy, I talk about people there… but select subscribers can get it… $15 a pop… and worth it, if you are are willing to change your mind… Most never will. You can email me for a link… and I’ll decide if I want you to have it or not.
Mental Models: relate to and solve problems with different, fundamentally different perspectives of reality

Quantum reality: There is order in the universe, even if it is not readily observable to you

The visible order, what you can see, is just the top 1%. Below that there is 99% that is order, but you can’t see it.

The more you are of the persuasion that there is a way the world should be, you should be, society should be, to the same degree you are blind, and unsuccessful if you act, and stuck if you don’t.

Of course you expect the order to be obvious, with clear rules, so you don’t have to be responsible for thinking, observing, adjusting your actions to how it is… and ultimately for any of your actions, any of your results.

Predatory genes combined with human culture are deadly, deadly in its consequences.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change. ~Einstein

Species-wide, the ability to change is called adaptability. Species that can adapt survive. Species that don’t… don’t.

“Adaptability as a skill refers to the ability of a person to change his actions, course or approach to doing things in order to suit a new situation. We constantly change our lifestyles because our world is changing always. … That is an example of adaptability.”

But what happens if you don’t recognize that it is a new situation… when you look at everything exactly the same way as before? Then you are stuck.

Everything You Ever Wanted Is Coming To You Through Other People.

Henry David Thoreau wrote
The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.
What is the meaning of desperation?
Desperate means “having lost all hope.” … If you are in a desperate situation, it means things are really, really bad. Desperate… Both desperate and despair come from the same Latin verb as despair.

I remember clearly what that is like. It wasn’t long ago where I was wholly resigned and therefore had nothing to look forward to…

It was about 10 years ago that I had a turning point.

The puzzle of human evolution, of human health, how are we doing as a species?

Almost any puzzle worth its name has a linchpin type of “catch”… that doesn’t look anything worth exploring.

It looks innocuous, unimportant, just like anything and everything else.

Whether it is physical puzzle or a mental puzzle, it has one catch…

In my growth I have faced and solved many puzzles.

The solution didn’t befall me like magic.
I wasn’t shown the solution to any of those.
I had to solve them, piecemeal, one by one.

The only things that got me through are

curiosity
the ability to detach
enough misery for an army

Behaviors that hold you back from success

There is a behavior that I used to have, and have successfully beaten.

The behavior  is the “out of sight/out of mind”, “now that I am doing something else, I don’t remember the things I have been doing, promised, supposed to do…”
The behavior of a person who cannot keep 2-3-4-5 habits going concurrently.
If they are busy looking at something, they are so busy, that their water is not energized, their food list is not honored, they don’t practice their guitar, they don’t read, nothing. Just do that one thing.

With social media, smart phones, this is getting even worse… and I didn’t think it could get any worse than it was before.
What is the cause?

What does Tai Lopez mean by cabbage mind? does he know what he is talking about?

This is an important post… Either read it thoroughly, or just skip it… Please. OK?

Every Sunday morning, for the past 12 years, I have been having a 90 minute conversation with a guy who I met at Pam Ragland’s Quantum Thought Shifting course back in 2007.

I have been recording those calls… I call them Sunday Rants… because that is, pretty much, my only chance to rant and rave about things, people, frustrations, disappointments, and return to sanity, week after week.
