I put all my knowledge into my articles. I hold nothing back. I am not afraid that it cheapens my brand, that the knowledge will be, suddenly had by everyone, and I’ll have nothing to sell.
I read articles on other sites, and they are quite inane, with a nugget of gold here and there, but even that nugget is rare. And hidden.
When I realized that I was in the marketing and selling business in 1998, 21 years ago, I was in for a long and very slowly rising learning curve.
I bought courses, in-person, online, and most courses, if I could glean a nugget, I was lucky. Most courses I didn’t glean any knowledge. Why? Am I stupid? No. What was wrong with me that I spent tens of thousands of dollars and didn’t get the results I paid for?
But it’s so “normal” to be a small thinker, that many people think they are big thinkers because they have big pie-in-the-sky desires.
What is a pie-in-the-sky desire? It is an end goal to which there is no ladder and there is no intention to build one.
One of the things I measure in the Starting Point Measurements is the size of your desire vs. the size of your ambition.

The easiest “test” to find out is to ask them to do the skill-finder process from the book “What Color is Your Parachute” that has been published, I guess, for 50 years? OK… I just checked, for 49 years.

As I was looking for pictures, I found another dude, British, long beard… Aubrey de Grey… who approaches aging more the way we do here… so I’ll show his TED talk he gave in my favorite city, Budapest, Hungary, where I was born.
He looks at aging as a side effect of living, and his approach to longevity is to work with the side effects, and one by one beat them.
It’s going to take a lot of medication, and hoopla… before this can even be working on humans… but the idea is sound, so here is his TED talk. (Truth value: 20%)
I have students who fake thankfulness, gratitude… you can hear it. And occasionally they confess.
To me, to hear the fakeness, it indicates their wretchedness.
They think that gratitude, appreciation is social grease… and you give it to look good, to fit in, to obey some social rule, or because the other needs it.
Their knowledge about how reality works is completely missing…
Gratitude, what you are getting, all live in language… have no existence in reality. Without expressing gratitude you got nothing… and of course nothing to be grateful for.
