Push on Through to the Other Side
When on the road to enlightenment, or success, or accomplishment a person comes to a what might be called, so to speak, a threshold where afterward there is no turning back. A commitment has been made. Full speed ahead. Put your nose to the grindstone, pedal to the metal. Success! Onward and upward. Analyze. Arrange! Actualize! Just do it. Right!
They say, “Use your determination! Stick with it!”
Not all of them do. Some point out that the main cause of failure actually is attachment. One has to ask themselves, “How many times am I going to put this ‘Three-legged horse’ into the race? You’ve bet your life savings, hocked the credit card and sold the family jewels to get in the race. It has to work! When do you stop? Can a person reverse direction on a dime?
The Greatest Idea of All Time
That may be a good name for the ‘Three-legged horse’ on which you’ve bet your life, because the secret of the Internet, of successful Internet business, is to quickly change directions by starting, re-starting ideas, and getting rid of the dogs you’re racing. . . . which you’ve created because of attachment. Your idea is a dog if you’ve been working too long and getting no where. But, but . . . the idea is your baby. You can’t change now.
The Rules of the Internet
Are the same as NLP–Neural Linguistic Programming–created by Grinder and Bandler–which has as it’s basic tenet: If it doesn’t work, try something else. Maybe it’s time to let go and reverse direction. This next exercise increases your creativity as it releases the attachment to fixed ideas. It’s simple, but by doing it you might get rid of the ‘mudders’ and ‘three-legged’ horses you’ve been racing and discover you’re a real winner . . . or even that it’s not a race but a lazy afternoon siesta.
Consider some everyday life situation, object, or activity as if they were exactly the opposite of what you normally take them to be. Imagine yourself in a situation the reverse of your own, where you act exactly contrary to what you do now. Observe actions, and thoughts, and feelings as if they were totally reversed. Don’t condemn or judge them. Simply reverse them in your mind’s eye.
For example, if you fed your dog or cat this morning, imagine what it would be like if your pet fed you. What if instead of going to work, your work came to you? If you’re married and have kids, what would life be like if you were the kid and your kids were your parent?
