The amount of confusion and judgment about fame is pretty nuts. It seems like I can’t bring up one piece of pop-culture without people telling me how they "hate <blank>" about it, or "oh <blank> sucks, they should do something else," or "psssht, must be nice to be that <blank>"
It’s pretty played out, man. I stopped talking and thinking that way a long time ago, and now I’m just cool with success. If somebody feels good about their life and what they’re doing, why complain?
Here’s 3 things I’ve done to really get my mind, body, and soul prepared for fame. These are things most famous people have already done, but they don’t explain it and may not even be conscious of it. You’re getting the ideas provided to you clearly. Ready?Read More
I`m sure you`ve heard of "Starving Artist Syndrome", but I’ll bet you’ve never heard much about what’s really behind it. It’s root cause is a powerful misunderstanding of value.
Starving Artist Syndrome = "I have lots to offer the world, but I can’t offer it until I have money for <blank>. If I had money, then I could help the world."
This idea is wrong. Just plain wrong.
Your value and your success have NOTHING TO DO WITH MONEY.
I can’t make this clear enough.Read More
Have you ever been to school? Been taught anything by anyone?
If you have, chances are you’ve had some good, some bad, some moderate learning experiences.
Have you ever taught? To a friend, to a co-worker, to a child?
If you have, chances are you were able to remember those things in a much better way. Enjoying it the whole time.
I have been attending an RMT (Registered Massage Therapy) course recently, and the teacher is a super entertaining, awesome human being and a natural at everything: drawing, humor, simplifying difficult concepts into baby food that people can swallow and even into micro-organisms for the former-scientists in the classroom.
He recently talked about what he calls “active memory”, the first time I’ve heard of such a concept, where he suggested in examples about it where you can make flash cards, with the question, for example:
What is the origin, insertion and action of a trapezius? And you would have the answer on the back.
Of course, there is always another layer behind what people say. And he later went on to say that “active memory” has nothing to do with flash cards, but the ability to teach. He even suggested that one could teach oneself. Obvious, yes?
And then I realized, on my drive home. Who’s the best student I can always teach? The answer, was myself!
I was quite surprised. Though I knew what he meant at the time, because isn’t teaching yourself just… “learning”? It’s something more.
A little more conscious. A little more love is needed to teach oneself, or myself. Basically, really be able to teach yourself in the way that isn’t just habitual.
For example, brushing your teeth.
Do you really know how to brush your teeth? Can you explain to a 5 year old, why and when is the best time to brush? Do you just say to him or her, the little wee thing, just put the toothpaste onto your toothbrush, and start brushing?
Then make a slightly sarcastic joke, which only you find funny, about working on tying their shoes tomorrow (leaving abruptly).
Or do you tell them kindly, it’s fantastic that you are learning to brush your teeth by yourself! When you brush your teeth properly, you can not only look better to your friends and family, but also you feel and smell better.
You remind them about how, didn’t you know? An apple once a day makes the doctor go away. And relate it to how when you eat an apple, the natural fibers actually clean your teeth!
And you keep sharing your knowledge, about that time you had a funny teeth brushing incident where you used your little brother’s toothbrush and started freaking out because you were still afraid of germs at the time.
More and more, about this and that, flossing and brushing twice a day and balabalabla.
To see their eyes widen, as they realize you care about them and that they will always remember these funny life stories combined with little lessons you shared with all your heart. It also takes something out of your essence to give to them, courage that your jokes, your information and how you present yourself is received well. Teaching well requires trust. Which can be hard, especially when their attention spans are about as focused as a dog surrounded by bone-like toys. Maybe the kid didn’t listen to the joke, or only heard the joke, but that doesn’t matter. What made it a great teaching and learning thing for everyone was that everyone had a great time, and learned as much from the experience as they could absorb at the time.
To teach yourself like this, it’s also a beautiful thing.
What were some of the best experiences where you taught yourself something? Think.
Maybe it was how to talk to a girl you were attracted to without being nervous. Some people (like me), just talked to/ asked out a 100 attractive girls in a row, in a span of a month, and was done with it.
How is this related to teaching kids teeth brushing?
Well, it just is.
While I talked to these random girls I met on the subway, on the street, at Chapters, in the library, at the school cafeteria or in the shopping centre, I kept teaching myself like so:
“Hey sweetheart, how about a date?” I already have a boyfriend (while looking at me up and down humorously).
It was awesome, I didn’t actually want to date them, as I chose to be busy with school and work, and most of them already had boyfriends. Or at least that’s what they told me. Some of them actually invited me to a bar or parties they were going to that night or to go to their cottage with their friends.
I regret not having enough courage at the time to say yes to any of these events, especially since I was deathly afraid of alcohol, but those are stories for another time. Soon, I promise
Anyways, what made this a great learning experience for me? It took courage, and trust that the conversations would go over well and that it would be a great time for everyone involved. Not all of them did, some didn’t care and didn’t respond, but it was clear that everyone had as funny or as eye opening experience as they could receive at the time.
It’s just fun to teach yourself. You develop your capacity to express more love. And I find I like to separate teaching oneself and “learning”. It’s not the same thing. One is putting everything on the line and putting yourself out there and giving it your all, and the other is related to boredom and grind.
Choose what’s on your menu, but for me the choice is obvious.Read More
Today I’m going to touch on something very few people talk about and yet most care quite a bit about. They don’t really consciously think about it, but it’s there.
There are people in this world who were born intellectual geniuses and there are people who are natural ‘physical monsters.’ These people can perform amazing feats of creativity, creating books and clothing lines or doing one-arm-chin-ups and punching through concrete or any other various other tasks of such nature.
These people, if they simply did these things on auto-pilot in a mechanical way, while they would become proficient and “better” easily, would be learning the hard way how painful and boring it is to do such things so unconsciously, compared to what they could do if they did push their comfort zones. Put another way, if they grew in their power (technique, speed, implementation of such tasks), and not risk with it in a vulnerable position, they would end up disempowering themselves and holding their growth back. They’d be afraid of losing what they could accomplish already, and they’d try to remain in their current (inevitably lowering) skills in their favourite discipline, without really expanding and growing of who they really are. They would not really be able to say ‘Hey, now I can do a one-finger one-armed chin-up, because I trained hard consciously and reached a new level.’ Put yet another way, these people need to increase their vulnerability always, to increase their enjoyment of life. If they didn’t, they could lose it all. But by doing so, they tremendously increase their ability to succeed in accomplishing their dreams. Basically, they take risks, and ‘God helps them.’
There are others who were born with much less genius, much less physical talent. These people who go through life in a daze and their accomplishments are easily forgotten or even if remembered, cannot really be praised as a true contribution to society for most people. Often discarded as simply useless by the community around them, they still are beautiful in their own way and, if proceeding in a certain way, also are capable of pulling through a dark horse victory.
These people are already always vulnerable (through their lack of natural capacity), and so it would seem as though they must improve their sense of power unto themselves, and build skills to facilitate their growth. These skills could be anything from sports, dancing, social skills, tech skills, job hunting ability, writing skill, so on and so forth. Though it would seem that these people would have to do the reverse, grow in power and technique of various activities, and while that’s a part of it, actually the answer for them is the same. They must simply grow more conscious about being vulnerable and do activities that “put them at risk”, that they realize can benefit themselves, their friends, and life itself. After doing these in various habitats and scenarios, they will learn and imbibe a certain degree of skill and power of whatever fortune gives them. If they tried to do this in the reverse order, that is, to become skilful at certain tasks with a certain set motive or agenda to “be the best” or to accomplish some “personal aim with an ego attached”, they would certainly not live up to their full potential, it would seem unnatural, and most importantly, it shows of their character to life itself that they are not trusting of what is given to them, and their lack of gratefulness would change things. They’d be better served by simply doing new things with joy and complete innocence, despite a lack of natural ability.
Ultimately though, it doesn’t matter, because God helps them too, especially for those ready to listen.
