The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth

I made an alarming observation yesterday at my monthly PlaygroundPlayground session. Every single person in the program has a version of ‘I only want to do what I want to do, and none of the things I am supposed to do’.

Of course there is a gradation… gradients… some are less unwilling than others.

Chances are I didn’t get all ‘special’ people into my programs, so it seems that this is part of the human condition now: people don’t want to do what they need to do, what they ought to do to be well, to be valuable, to be happy, fulfilled.

Some of the services I provide is muscle testing supplement list, food list, eating style, and health measurements.

This unwillingness to do what one needs to do first shows up for me in their behavior with regards to their health suggestions… they largely keep eating the way they have always eaten, in extreme cases, to be defiant, they actually eat worse.

I don’t have patience or time for reverse psychology: I assume that if you pay hundreds of dollars for something you will do what it suggests… but I could not be more wrong. They don’t.

The lower the willingness to do what needs to get done the less willing they are to do, even for themselves, what needs to get done.

Their health numbers are declining.

The parallel between their health numbers, their willingness level and their TLB (Twitchy Little Bastard score) is totally obvious.

Which of these measures are most within your grasp to control? To grow?

In my experience, it is the TLB that is the most obvious and accessible to control. Increasing your tolerance for pain, discomfort, risk, can be gradually done.

As luck has it, I just took a brief break to read one of my client’s 67 step commentary… and he is at the step where Tai talks about ‘intellectual arrogance causes disabling ignorance’

“…discover where your intellectual arrogance is causing disabling ignorance and overcome it.” ~Peter Drucker

The mind is a meaning making machine. In technical terms this activity is called ‘confabulation’.
