The FOUR Biggest Reasons for Failure

Any of these four will produce failure every time and there is nothing special about the order.

success12# 1) Believe the ‘marketing’ preached by every single program, political party or religion! My favorite one is you have to have first mover advantage, join early, get in at the beginning before the herd and buy into prelaunch tactics forever. The ‘hurry up and wait’ gets very old. Another one is failure is not your fault. That sounds nice but who really is in charge of your life then? As long as you live in hope, you will fail. Hope is NOT a strategy and is never a tactic to acquire or succeed at anything. If you cannot distinguish between marketing, truth and reality, you are doomed. Yes, the truth gives you a small chance to be free. If you say, ‘if it is too good to be true it likely isn’t’, then please leave now. You are invincibly brainwashed and sabotage your success every time. The ability and willingness to think for yourself is rare and not taught in government institutions.

# 2) You failed because the organization was actually a sifting and sorting mechanism for the few who succeed regardless of circumstances or conditions. Most people have not valued their first and second tier relationships enough to know how important they are. If your friends and family will not or cannot support you, why would strangers? You did not have the skills, the experience or support required to accomplish the objectives. YOU are not ‘qualified’ to succeed in every area or task. Again, hope is not a strategy or tactic for success. How do you become qualified is a worthwhile question. Who determines the qualifications?   It is not the government, any government by the way.

successcycle# 3)  Everyone is committed and outcomes make them clear. If yours is tentative and conditional combined with the same from the organization you will fail. Most of us have tried enough to know that ‘try’ only produces an education in failure, a learning experience. Some will do their best but once reached, they quit also. The excuse, “I did my best” placates all failures. We live in a time when contracts are worthless, no fault divorce is easy come easy go and a person’s word means even less. Consequently, you don’t trust yourself or anyone else. Until you know that you can count on yourself without anyone watching and until you have accomplished the impossible for you just past where you usually quit, you will continue to fail by habit.

#4)  You are not a leader and only want to be a follower.  A leader takes responsibility for all outcomes, is ‘cause’ in the matter of their life. If you keep following the same path to oblivion as the rest of your group, you have nobody but you to blame for the same outcomes. Results matter. Ignoring the ‘fruit’ is a sure way to fail. Hang out with people that inspire you and you become who you spend your time with. Bad fruit and good fruit hang out in separate groups.

The list is a longer than just these four but these four once identified can make the success6difference. Awareness of these four areas can produce ground where success has a real chance to thrive.

Will you stay the course; commit to at least one year or even better, 18 months, to allow the ‘fruit’ to ripen?   Yes, you need to know all the costs up front but nothing you have ever done successfully happened in days, weeks or a few short months. If your memory tells you otherwise, you have forgotten the most important steps you took to get there.

Can you follow directions and complete actions without regard for how you ‘think’ it should turn out? Yes means you are coachable. Most people cannot, will not let go of the thinking and beliefs that only serve their masters interests.

Where do you want to go and how do you get there? It will not happen on your own. Find a group that supports you! Where do we want to go and how do we get there? Liberals, democrats and socialists have their own groups. They have their own conditions for satisfaction, tenets, rules and beliefs and claim profit is evil. Profit pays for everything, not the government. The total number of jobs has been declining in the USA since the 1960’s while the number of people looking for a job keeps rising. Can you guess why ‘pay’ has not increased and never will.

Everyone loves sales! What you fear is rejection! …

There is a successful life out there but all of the obstacles are in your mind.

If money is your problem, money won’t solve your problem. – James A. Ray

success10You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you. – James Allen

At the bottom no one in life can help anyone else in life; this one experiences over and over in every conflict and every perplexity: that one is alone. That isn’t as bad as it may first appear; and again it is the best thing in life that each should have everything in himself; his fate, his future, his whole expanse and world. – Rainer Maria Rilke

Are you ready for instant pay, 100% commissions and monthly residual income while offering a smorgasbord of education courses in ongoing personal, business, health and financial areas? Yes, you will meet with invincible ignorance, you cannot teach rocks anything.

Focus, Leadership and Influence…

Where focus goes, energy flows.

Most programs and most training programs want you to focus on sifting and sorting YOURnewNotanyoneelsessuspects and prospects for ‘their’ opportunity.  Whether it is network marketing, affiliate marketing the sifting ‘job’ is worse than work. The few who figure it out will earn plenty but offering people your ‘funded proposal’ so most people only realize smoke and sizzle wears thin. Karma bites victims often. Blaming victims is the number one industry pastime. Instead of sifting and sorting with the prospects money in hand what if you began qualifying people first. Is your focus and commitment to their success bigger than theirs is and if not why not! The Lone Ranger rides again!!

People are not afraid of failure, they are afraid of blame. The belief that you have to help people and how may in fact be destroying any chance they could have for success. When the caterpillar enters the chrysalis stage, any ‘help’ you provide insures it will never fly. Most programs suck you dry, clip your wings permanently and blame you for your failure. Helping is important when feeding caterpillars or naiads.

outonalimbNaiads hatch from eggs and live for years in the water feeding on smaller life forms, usually mosquito larvae. One day they climb out of the water and the exposure to sun and air has them breathe. Their shell breaks, they crawl out of their shell, pump their wings and the dragonfly spends the next six months or less feeding on smaller insects, mostly mosquitoes.

In a world that works for everyone, with no one left out and no one left behind, will we focus on caterpillars and naiads or will we support the butterfly and dragonfly? It appears to me the current system keeps ‘people’ naiads and caterpillars.

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. – GK Chesterton

I cannot help anyone who will not help himself or herself. You have to want to slay your own dragons. If anyone else does it for you, it cannot count towards your success. The cults of leadership and leaders are mostly dragons.   A ‘promised land’ for caterpillars and naiads is a myth. The North American Monarch butterfly migrates to and from Mexico. The Monarchs in the Valley of Eternal Spring stay here. Monarchs have no leader. What influence makes the difference?

Goal: An object or an event towards which PLAY is directed in order to score.

If your goal is survival, the best score only keeps you alive. If your goal is success at an MLM or any other caterpillar/naiad game, the play is at least ten thousand hours long, on the same field before you can hope to surpass survival. You still have to transform in the process.

What does a program designed for a dragonfly or a butterfly look like? It is not MLM, network marketing, gifting, a money game or the majority of online offerings pandered today. It is only for the tenacious. Persistence, much like pestering, is a caterpillar trait. Tenacity accesses the same data differently; tenacity influences decisions using paths unavailable to naiads and caterpillars. Tenacity achieves goals the old ways, the RUReadycaterpillars and naiads could never imagine.


You are banking $3,000+ in the next three to six weeks, then weekly in less time and for the truly serious, daily in ten hours or less a week. Can you follow directions? For a brief three-minute explanation, please press 1-612-594-7703. Caterpillars and naiads won’t call.

Not as something that has arrived here by fluke.
But you can begin to feel your own existence
as absolutely fundamental.
I’m not trying to sell you on this idea
in the sense of converting you to it.
I want you to play with it.
I want you to think of its possiblities.
I’m not trying to prove it
I’m just putting it forward as a possibility of life to think about
So then…
Let’s suppose that you were able every night,
to dream any dream you wanted to dream.
And that you could for example have the power
within one night to dream seventy five years…

What is Holding Me Back?

If I am only a passenger in the vehicle thinking I am the driver, I do not have the control I believe I have. If everyone is a passenger, while an unknown driver who knows our destination is driving, what is there to worry about? If the driver doesn’t know the destination why am I a passenger? If I am in one car on a train, where people are committed to one side of the car I ride makes all the difference in our destination, as long as the view from the side I am on makes me happy, confirms my belief, all is well. When I don’t like my view of the direction we are headed I may be tempted to switch sides believing that affects our destination somehow.

perspective2The squares and circles we use as excuses, arguments, justifications and beliefs never make any difference. Plato’s shadows on the cave wall still enslave and mesmerize us, even when we suspect none of it is true. We are still stuck like crabs in a bucket. Someone will support our vision…our beliefs keeping us stuck in our perspectives.

I have been standing in the question ‘What is holding me back?’ for a long time.  Perhaps the question only gives the squares and circles keeping the ‘held back’ experience always present.

The nattering regarding time [insufficient usually], difficulties [ongoing Goldilocks sagas], readiness [starting usually] and worthiness [more insufficiencies] all happen in our minds, from an in-the-stands perspective amounting to book size justifications. School taught us to think and look for the correct answer. That is the wrong universe!!!

The latest in neuroscience and cognitive science research says…

The belief that our attitude or state of mind influences or causes the way we act is a fallacy.

The belief that our feelings or emotions influence or cause the way we act is a fallacy.

The belief that our body sensations influence or cause the way we act is a fallacy.

The belief that our decisions influence or cause the way we act is also a fallacy.

As a three year old, the one thing that impacts accomplishment is not smothered yet.whoYouareNOT

No magic buttons affect our actions. ‘Yeah, but’ at best is just a gif. The application that may work is:

Knock UNTIL the door opens
Seek UNTIL you find
Ask UNTIL you have it

What we see is always and all ways a function of what we believe. Until we can set aside one belief as easily as we can another, we are blind. Consider all beliefs are a lie or at best incomplete truth. Any nanomicrocosm of doubt voids the ‘whatever you want you can have’ warranty too.

Accepting what is happening, without paying causal attention to the circle or square, without judgments, without justifications is not easy or simple to acquire.  One plus one equals three and two is a lie or at best a bridge.

The choice of perspective is always to live in a lie.

How do I move into the driver seat? Is it possible to get out of the train, get in front of it and lay new track while the train is moving? Is either question a possibility in this paradigm? What delusion keeps it all in place?

The only escape, the only way out, the only way forward, the only exit from the box is remaining present in the moment to now. As an answer, this is worthless information.

Leaders are NOT Babysitters

My experience of most leaders and leadership is a mutual endeavor to be taken care of and to take care of ‘people’. That insures a codependence preventing ‘people’ from ever experiencing themselves as ‘leader’. Asking me to accept a babysitter for anyone older than fourteen is abuse. Yeah, but you do too.

integritycourageThere are four foundational factors concerning leadership and leaders. They are integrity, authenticity, being committed to something bigger than yourself and being cause-in-the-matter. Each of these deserves a series of blog posts over the next year.

Leader and leadership have four aspects to their contextual framework.   They are the linguistic abstractions, phenomena, concepts and terms. Blogs on all of this are coming and all the source material that will get in the way of all of it as well.

The two kinds of ontological constraints, often ignored or not identified, are perceptional constraints and functional constraints. Click on any links for additional information.

An epistemological mastery (a from-the-stands mastery) of a subject leaves one knowing. An ontological mastery (an on-the-court mastery) of a subject leaves one being. – Werner Erhard

There is a belief, a myth actually, that if it isn’t difficult or a challenge, if it didn’t take a lot of struggle and hard work, ‘it’ isn’t worth remembering or doing. That goes against all of my best breakthrough experiences. What led up to the breakthrough was not always simple or easy to explain and sometimes involved a story about difficulty or ‘hard’ work but the actual experience while it happened, while the breakdown was in progress had a sense of effortlessness. The breakthrough effortlessness is multi-directional compared to a single line of breakdown effortlessness. Only afterward, was I ‘required’ or ‘taught’ to explain it relative to the perception of difficult, especially for anyone else.

I struggle daily with judging and justifications. The struggle is to notice when it begins. Judgments, especially related to awareness5myself, are always using the standard of a future perfect me. [Or you] When I notice that, only then may I let it go to notice real perfection. All justifications are ploys used by the mind to keep me [or you] out of ‘now’, the present, that one place in time “I” may exist. Any justification is an excuse related to some judgment about how it should or could be and only happen in the mind from a place not now.

Real perfection is noticing and letting me [or you] be exactly the way I am [you are] and exactly the way I am [you are] not. Stop lying about it. Improvements, the way to additional achievements is only possible from where I am [you are] now and never from anywhere else.

[Y]ou do not change your reality through doing anything. … Enlightenment is not an experience. – Richard Rudd [one plus one only equals three, 2 is a myth or maybe a ‘bridge’]

What is intradependence?

I am a firm believer in independent learning which for me, is allowing children to acquire processes that their natural enquiring minds feel most comfortable.  One of the important aspects of learning that applies to all children is to work at that own pace.  Some teachers see this as an excuse to be lazy, but by motivating the children through good leadership skills a teacher can guide a student towards high quality learning.  It is not a question of nature vs nurturing – I firmly believe that a teacher’s role is to nurture the child.  One of my preferred methods is through sharing and collaboration.  In the modern high tech 21st century world, it seems that our children will work on projects in collaboration with people around the world, so to be competitive in the job market they need to acquire the skills and processes that collectively I term as…
