Before we dive in today I’d like to congratulate you for
sticking with me. Early in this series I suggested that you could begin to
close the GAP between where you are now and where you want to be.
By considering what has been offered, you will now be in a
different place then you were just over a month ago.
The difference may be slight, and in fact, hardly noticeable
to your conscious mind. However, by continuing to be open to what is being
offered, you will be making incremental gains in becoming the CEO of your life.
We have covered plenty of material and much of it takes more
then a day to process and absorb. I have continued to encourage you to go back
and review past emails as this will support your learning.
In the last email (review email 34) I suggested that:
The very ideas and standards
we have so willingly adopted via external programming do not necessarily
position us to live satisfied lives.
I encouraged you to:
Begin to pay attention, to inspect, and
to notice how you are allowing curiosity to play out for you.
The willingness to become curious is crucial when we are
aiming to creating new ways of being. Remember that the internal robot (aka
- is designed to maintain the path of least resistance (cow
path of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors)
- is also a learning machine
Our job is to get the
subconscious mind to sit up and take notice of differences. Plausible,
incremental differences are more likely to be swallowed by the subconscious
mind. In the last email, I spoke briefly about becoming an amateur social
scientist (see workbook).
Today, I am continuing to encourage you to become curious and
look for differences:
What ideas and
standards does someone, who is just slightly ahead of you, have in terms of
being the CEO of their lives? What ideas and standards do you think they have consciously
and deliberately chosen?
