If Steve Pavlina said to me, "You are not productive" I would probably hop right off the couch and get to something, anything, as long as I was doing something!
Well the point isn't to feel like crap about yourself, I make it a point to be totally forgiving of myself as a prerequisite... the only thing that I have to do is to manage my thoughts and then I trust that LoA will "manifest" the results. Instead, there are 2 thought processes that usually kick in:
1) Defensiveness. Wait a minute, how can you say I'm not productive? Look at all this stuff I've done. You better believe I'm productive.
2) Visualization. How do I know I'm not productive? If I were productive what would that look like? Spend some time imagining myself as being productive.
And both of these patterns draw me towards greater productivity, instead of pushing it away.
Well if it's a place out of the country it would take around $1000 i'm guessing, and out of state a few hundred bucks, and if it's one in my state, I'd just need probably $50-$100 for gas to drive there. But the thing is, these programs only run for a short amount of time, some only want you for a few days, some a week, some a few months. So I would have to move around and find a new one when the other one is done. So that would mean coming up with a few hundred dollars or more maybe as often as every week. Egghhh this is sounding pretty hard now, how would I be able to get a job in all those places if i'm only there for a week or a month?
Oh, I thought you said you found one that was for 6 months. Yah, going for a week at a time could get pretty pricey.
