To judge something accurately, you need a lot of skills, spiritual capacities, including seeing the big picture, etc. You need to be able to tell similar things apart. You need to be astute. You need to be able to answer the question “But is he worth a damn?” ((The originator of that question, But is he worth a damn? Tai Lopez looks for credentials, because they are easy to check. But when I go and check the truth value of the books he recommends, I find anything from 3% to 9%… and that is not worth a damn.
Treating Tai’s steps, or what his teachers say, or what the books say as the truth will trap you on the Tree of Knowledge… and yet. And yet I recommend that you do the 67 steps… But do it the way you take a shower. You take a shower, you get wet, you towel off, and you move on. But getting wet has a lot to do with a good life…
What? It is hard to say, but being exposed to a lot more of the world than you would sitting on your ass, doing the same things day in and day out, will slowly and surely allow you to be more, see more, and be a lot more astute… because you can see a whole lot more. Will it make you astute? No… by itself: no.
But by doing things that test what you learn… hell yeah… at least in the area of life where you are testing. So yes, I recommend it.
I myself became a lot more astute by doing it… I am asking a lot more questions, and questions that are taking me to the edge of human knowledge… maybe into the “unfolded” part of the Holographic Universe.))
As I have said before, if you are a midget you see the knees of people, and you will make your judgments from the knees…
If you judge people to feel better about yourself, or to place yourself above them… you are fooling no one except people who are on the same level as you are, intellectually, spiritually, and in emotional maturity.
