You don't want to read post history but you'll read the material if I publish it in a book? I can engage in a conversation about something specific but if you're going to say fostering an abundance mentality via self improvement is new info to me and others then you are patently wrong. When you refuse to look at the evidence(post history) there's little point in conversing further.Your post history? This is the problem right here; if your post history is worth reading, be like Rollo and publish it, expand upon it... Im not going to go through your post history, because most ideas can be boiled down to their very base and I believe there is a bit of denial here.
This is semantics... If you want to get technical then literally every thought, every action, is a form of mechanical manipulation.What I am saying, is that the basis of the information here, is propped up by manipulation, when boiled down to its very core. Self Development is a form of Manipulation, the only difference is you are Manipulating yourself into that mindset...
Results can breed complacency, they can also breed more ambition, it's entirely subjective. I think you may be describing your personal issue. That's great but let's make sure to keep that in mind, that this is your opinion and not gospel.But before you wanted to engage in Self Development, it was denial, Blue Pill denial, a concept I am certainly familiar with, intimately maybe and I am sure most of you can say the same thing... But maybe we read new information, have a bad experience, this shakes our denial until eventually we convince ourselves to give it a shot.
The problem here, is that results breed complacency... We want to refer people to the past, a place of comfort, rather than a place of discomfort.
I understand it can make one uncomfortable when I suggest that the very basis of this whole thing is something you do not want to believe it is.
Me directing you to information that will enlighten you as to who you're talking to and our ideas proves your point? All it proves is your stubbornness and ignorance. You've given some examples of what makes for good self development, but if you have no specific points I'm done here. Guys get tired of spoon-feeding the same stuff, the post history has a lot of great stuff.I do believe that you guys advocate for Self Development, but the very idea of that term, has an implication of maintenance and progress and the fact that you are diverting me to your post history instead of a current post or idea, actually proves my point.
Yeah once again it seems you should dig in the member post history. Expecting spoon feeding is not realistic, why would someone of higher value want to convince you to listen? And it's normal that average posts/threads are the majority, that's the definition of average. A complex topic or discussion will naturally come up less often.I see no current threads about intellectual development, the occasional... This tells me there is a tangible denial in the community, to not recognize the power of education, it is the great Equalizer across the planet, this idea that going to the gym is even in the same realm of thought as education, is completely ridiculous, but this is what I am working with.
How can you refuse to read something then in the same breath say this community denies education? Do you realize the irony of your behavior?
I lose immense respect for anyone that is too lazy to read or tries to excuse away reading, especially if they come in as if they know better. I work with those that are hungry to understand and humble about what they don't know.
