Who do you listen to?
Hi all, I just wanted to take a quick moment to pop by the forums again and offer some value that might help in your Intention Manifestation journey.
As some of you know, a few months ago I was lent a copy of "Your Wish is Your Command" by a friend of mine. It's a 14-CD audio course put out by Kevin Trudeau and the Global Information Network.
I found this training to be invaluable, and pretty much the best LoA course I have ever seen in my 10 year study of Law of Attraction. Since taking and applying the teachings of the course, I've manifested a lot of cool stuff in my life in the last few months.
I have also become a Level 1 Member of GIN because I love their training so much and the mission of the organization as a whole.
Anyway, one of the first things I wanted to share with you guys that I learned from YWIYC and GIN is the importance of being VERY selective of "Who do you listen to?"
It may sound like a very simple thing, but I have found it to be a HUGE factor in making LoA work for you.
There are many, many, many levels to the "Who do you listen to?" concept, but I'll start with the basics.
The biggest "flaw" with learning how the Universe / LoA works is not that there isn't enough information / books / courses / forum posts / opinions out there which teach how it works.
The biggest flaw is that there is TOO MUCH information out there. Information on the Law of Attraction can really be broken down into three categories:
(1) Purposely False - This is information that is purposely disseminated publicly which contains parts of the truth, intermingled with a whole bunch of false information intended to keep people running in circles. Information that is also "missing" key pieces of the formula also falls into this category. Those missing pieces were omitted on purpose.
(2) Innocently False - This is information that is spread around all over the internet and in books by people who THEORIZE on how the LoA might work, should work, or how it makes logical sense that it should work. However, these are people who have not actually produced any real, duplicateable, major results with the Law of Attraction.
For example, in monetary terms, maybe they manifested $100, or $500, or even a few hundred thousand dollars, or even perhaps a million dollars over a few years.
However, when they try to teach their methods to other people, 95%-99% of their students fail to produce any results. Also, they themselves often have trouble duplicating results.
Very often these types of teachings reflect the current beliefs of the masses on what they believe to be the truth about how "LoA" works. By reflecting the beliefs of the masses it's easy to get a large number of people to say "Yes, that must be the truth, because that's what I already believe!" even if those beliefs produce NO RESULTS in people's lives. It's all just theory that sounds good but because it doesn't challenge our beliefs, we accept it as truth because it's so easy to agree with that which we already believe.
(3) True Time Tested - This is information that has been thoroughly tested by many, many people and has been used to produce MASSIVE results utilizing the Law of Attraction. It produces reproducible results for anyone who utilizes the teachings. As long as you do what the teachings say, you will produce results. If you don't do what the teaching says, you don't produce a result.
Often times these teachings are simple, seemingly illogical, and very often go against the very beliefs you currently hold onto which are preventing you from experiencing results. Often time when first heard, we will challenge these teachings because they go against our beliefs - the very same beliefs which are keeping us stuck.
Ok, so where do we go from here. Well, we need to realize that WHO WE LISTEN TO is very important.
For example, I have about 500-800 books here on my book shelves. A lot of them touch on the subject of "attraction", "manifestation" etc. in one way or another. So technically I have about 500-800 "opinions" here.
That is the equivalent of having 500-800 different recipes for a very specific cake, with all the recipes calling for different ingredients and in different amounts. Having that many recipes makes it impossible to actually bake a cake. You can't follow all of them at once. You have to pick one to see if it produces the cake you want.
However, what you soon realize is that 95% of the 500-800 recipes are not even complete...they simply make general statements like "Don't use general purpose flour whenever baking a cake, otherwise it won't work." and that's it. They don't say what kind of flour to use, and even if they do, they don't include the rest of the recipe.
In this same way, there are so many theories out there, mostly written by well-intentioned authors that fall into the 2nd category I listed above. For example "The Celestine Prophecy" is a great book.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. However, it is a FICTIONAL book about a FICTIONAL character with a FICTIONAL story that DIDN'T HAPPEN. No different than the movie THE MATRIX for example. It's a story, not something that actually happened.
Anyway, the point is that for me books like "The Celestine Prophecy" are no longer a reliable source of information as they fall into category #2. The Matrix as well. Neo doesn't actually exist, and he can't teach me how to manifest because he's not a real person in this reality, he's a fictional character created by the Wachowski brothers. I can still watch and enjoy the movie, but it's not a "RECIPE" for success.
What about all the other books that I have on LoA written by authors who make their money selling books on LoA? Unless my primary goal is to be an author of LoA books who makes all his money selling LoA books, then I have to discard their teachings as well since they haven't manifested money outside of their LoA teaching career.
If my goal, for example is to manifest a net worth of $50,000,000 or more, then I have to pretty much discard all books written by people who didn't manifest at least that. Or at least I have to consider that their information may not be complete.
What about people like Donald Trump, or Warren Buffet? They are very rich. What about books written by them? Well, their books might be good if they actually wrote them. Donald Trump doesn't write his books. They are ghost written by someone else who writes everything through their own filter. That person writing it probably makes $50,000/year or maybe $150,000/year as a writer, but hardly an ultra wealthy person.
Ultimately you have to come to realize that there is VERY LITTLE information out there, that falls under category #3.
Most of it is Category #2, where well intentioned people are just spreading their opinions. There's nothing wrong with that. Bloggers do it all the time, we do it here on the forums, it's all good. But it's not a formula for success.
Also a lot of information out there is Category #1 - especially when we're dealing with mass media / hollywood etc.
So where do we get Category #3 info? Well you have to find people who:
(a) Have a proven track record of producing the results you want to produce.
(b) Have the ability and desire to teach it to other people.
For example if you want to become a master chef, then you have to go and study with someone who is a master chef.
This is the old Master/Apprentice model of teaching.
If you want to be a Black Belt in Aikido, go study with a 5th Degree black belt in Aikido.
Don't study with the guy who read 1,000 books on Aikido but who hasn't ever trained.
Don't try to learn Aikido by watching YouTube videos of it, or watching a hollywood movie on it.
"WHO DO YOU LISTEN TO?" is one of the fundamental success principles.
This is one of the fundamentals taught in "Your Wish is Your COmmand". Kevin Trudeau does a much better job of teaching it than I do. However I just wanted to share it with you guys if you haven't gotten a copy of YWIYC yet.
By the way, if anyone wants to get access to YWIYC for free, I have copies that I can lend out. I know I mentioned this before, but I just wanted to mention it for anyone who hadn't seen that post of mine.
Also, just to be clear, the "Who do you listen to?" rule also applies to me. I don't recommend anyone listen to me for any advice on anything I haven't accomplished myself. Most of what I say falls into Category #2. I have good intentions, but I have not yet manifested a net worth of $50,000,000+ myself. I'm working on it, but not there yet.
Therefore if that is your goal, I recommend not listening to me. I instead recommend listening to other teachers who have already manifested such things, which is exactly what the GLobal Information Network is about - putting people in direct contact with those in the world who are producing real results.
