Awaken Your Inner Zentrepeneur
Maybe this is the best for last you know I'm going to reveal some things in this module that I don't often share in a lot of my corporate environments because there's a readiness factor and not everyone's ready for some of this just yet so I'm going to reveal some of the things behind what I do at a deeper level the truth is entropy neuron what that's really all about and uh and even run a little an interesting little demo up here that to show the power of heart if you of the very power of heart another albert einstein quote here you know I like to start out with a little okay quote from geniuses or great masters a great teachers over the years but I sense that the intuitive mine and I think jane you're going to love this one the intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant we have created a society that honors the servant and has for gotten the gift so think about that for a minute we get so programmed in our left brain rational society and laws and proc...
edures and do's and don'ts that the artist and all of us the zen part of zen trip endure really is entrepreneur because a lot of those enterpreneurs um the right brain if you will very intuitive it gets lost that gets lost in all the all the noise all the the rigor morale, so another uh wonderfully insightful comment from from albert einstein so in this ah this session to close things out we're going to explore the insights and the practice of this entrepreneur and just what is that what is this entrepreneur and learn ways how to get out of our own way we don't even realize sometimes that we're in our own way and we let these fears in these doubts he's in skirts securities and disbelief that external locus of control some of the things we discussed her there get in our way get just get in our way ignorance gets in our way so let's at least open up our minds and then opening up our minds opening up our hearts tio run so many amazing learnings weaken take in at a much faster pace allowing us to reach more of our potential and then I'm gonna explore some simple questions and release techniques that lead does entrepreneurs to these great discoveries so what are these simple questions and then what are these release techniques he's letting go techniques all right but there's something called the ring of peace it's four step model that I developed it's what I write about in beyond out four steps to inner peace on the ring of peace how do we apply that how do we in one of those steps of course is to let go really the four steps air let be let go let's see and let flow and its heritage similar to domestic. How does that work? How do we let be, let go, let's, see and let flow, and so we'll we'll work through that that's part of getting out of our own way. So an overview here, and you've heard me reference both of these books just a little bit. But there's, entrepreneur and beyond doubt is this is what where a lot of this segment is coming from. What is his? Enter, pinot spent a little time talking about that. What is energy? You've heard me reference energy a number of times. What what is that? And then how do we awaken this very powerful energy? But it's it's always there, it's like a radio frequency. You might stop for a minute, you know, and say, well, I don't hear any music right now. That mean it's not here because if we had a receiver in the room called the radio and we turned it on there's music playing right now we just don't hear it it doesn't mean it isn't here we can even change the dial and we cannot work now in here a talk show change the dialogue we hear a sports game we change the dial again and hear a different different type of music it's just because we can't hear it doesn't mean it isn't here so when we start to understand the world in terms of energy and frequencies vibrations and that it's always going on and einstein understood this is his well as anyone I know we start to realize that we're living in a field of energy this is what he references the field it's all around us we live in a field of energy and when we hear people say something like you know so and so seems to just light up the room when they come in that's just a reference but it's it's an intuitive understanding that they actually do that there are people that have a tendency to raise the vibrational energy in the room simply by being there simply by being present we've all been in the company of people like that it's like something's different when they're around something feels different there how what isthe the party is not the same when they're not here that kind of thing. There's it's a vibrational energy now scientists have found ways these days to to measure all of this it's fascinating I mean I love to see the work of people like dr bruce slipped in and dr david hawkins you know these air these air very credible verywell renounced scientist and in some cases a medical practitioners who have found ways teo uncover in reveal mysteries we've we've wondered about all along in fact what's happening is science and spirituality are coming together in ways we've never seen before because it used to be they were you know, science and religion were always at odds and the very divisive and there's things beyond react religion called spirituality what where it's really coming together so that's part of this entrepreneur and I'll speak to both the zen please maurine this segment to the zen into the entrepreneur because we've spent the last eleven segments speaking about the 00:05:59.542 --> 00:06:02. entrepreneur fuel in the change agent into the pioneer 00:06:02.82 --> 00:06:05. now that stuff so now we'll get to that zen part of 00:06:05.52 --> 00:06:07. this entrepreneur and have a little fun with it you 00:06:07.96 --> 00:06:10. know and then again what are some of the biggest challenges 00:06:10.11 --> 00:06:13. we face I got into this in the last segment just a 00:06:13.0 --> 00:06:17. bit these obstacles we call fear insecurity doubt 00:06:18.56 --> 00:06:23. ego what is ego what is that all about and I'll talk 00:06:23.14 --> 00:06:25. more about just exactly what that's all about and 00:06:25.91 --> 00:06:28. then how do we let goto let flow two of the four steps 00:06:28.73 --> 00:06:31. on the ring of peace how do we have I know I should 00:06:31.59 --> 00:06:33. let go this habit I know what I shouldn't think this 00:06:33.72 --> 00:06:36. way I know I shouldn't be afraid in these circumstances 00:06:36.72 --> 00:06:40. but I am it's a program and it's a habit I can't help 00:06:40.77 --> 00:06:43. it I get up on stage I get butterflies like I can't 00:06:43.54 --> 00:06:46. help it I get into traffic I get impatient I get anxious 00:06:46.4 --> 00:06:48. I can't help it yeah you can 00:06:49.66 --> 00:06:50. yes you can 00:06:51.46 --> 00:06:52. you just don't know how 00:06:53.76 --> 00:06:58. and that's the secret we often know the what we want 00:06:58.02 --> 00:07:00. to change we even know the why we want to change it 00:07:01.46 --> 00:07:04. we don't know how and that's really the intriguing 00:07:04.53 --> 00:07:08. part we need to know how and for a long time we didn't 00:07:08.27 --> 00:07:10. know howto let go of some of these vibrations some 00:07:10.93 --> 00:07:13. of these frequencies that we've carried around and 00:07:13.64 --> 00:07:16. now we're learning ways to do that talk a little bit 00:07:16.38 --> 00:07:19. about some of those so what does his enterpreneurs 00:07:19.1 --> 00:07:20. anyway? What is that all about? 00:07:22.16 --> 00:07:25. I like to refer to it as our our eternal spirit 00:07:26.94 --> 00:07:28. their spirit capital s spirit 00:07:29.62 --> 00:07:32. calling for expression so we're spiritually beings 00:07:32.49 --> 00:07:36. having a temporary human experience we're not human 00:07:36.54 --> 00:07:39. beings will have a temporary spiritually experience 00:07:39.51 --> 00:07:42. every every sunday or something like that that's another 00:07:42.18 --> 00:07:44. paradigm shift because a lot of us have been programmed 00:07:44.32 --> 00:07:48. to think that we are human beings temporarily experiencing 00:07:48.55 --> 00:07:53. spirit when it's just the reverse is true we're eternal 00:07:53.26 --> 00:07:55. spiritually beings and there's more and more science 00:07:55.63 --> 00:07:59. around this a cz well the work of dr brian wiese and 00:07:59.03 --> 00:08:03. people like that it's fascinating that we are carmack beans or internal spiritually beans uh who are having just a temporary human experience once you make that shift you're no longer afraid of a lot of the things you're currently afraid of you realize you can't get it wrong and you can't ever really fail all right so it's a whole different perspective as that's entrepreneurs aligned with our was source energy now you can refer to source energy is god you could refer to it as the life giving force but when we are aligned with that which gives us life it's a it's a critical step in getting into flow no this is ah this is simply aligning with thy will over my will so that I will be done not my will so are my will and I will are aligned we're in good shape it's our willingness to listen trust an act on our intuition and are six cents in our imagination and some of these things that we often talk ourselves out of it a very rational uh kind of world sir it's our innate desire for positive outcomes the zen is about positive outcomes it's about health and wellbeing and balance joy it's our ah ability to turn good ideas zen thinking if you will into positive outcomes which is requires action sze enterpreneurs act on good ideas the entrepreneur takes the good ideas the good thinking and does something with it so this is entropy enduring all of us again it's that spirit it's that good idea that wants to come out and be manifested and so why don't we let it what a way what do we get in the way for all right it's ability to a transcend fear is a very powerful obstacle and I'll come back into that and more and it's that ability to put presence poise grace into practice to flow so you know athletes call this sometimes the zone you get into the zone you can't miss artists get into getting two flow and it's a state of timelessness it's a state of peak productivity it's a state of fearlessness when urine flow hours seemed to race by time is is a nonissue you're not afraid you're not distracted you're so focused you're so present I get into flow when I write a lot of my writing is channeled I don't know I honestly don't know where it comes from but it's just it's it's it's coming through may not from me I know that much you know what I wrote beyond doubt in two thousand nine I was actually over in a hotel in france and I never I hadn't written a book in nine years I was halfway through a book on my father died in year two thousand and then I stopped and I got distracted and I just don't feel it anymore and I never went back and finished that book so for nine years I hadn't written a book now I'm in a hotel room over in the own france and I was doing a kaizen event over there that week and then I was staying the weekend and I was going upto england to run another event so I had a weekend in the in france just rest or go looking cathedrals or wander around things like that I wake up on a saturday morning and there is a incredible presence in the room saying you need to start writing again I'm like no I don't yes you do know I don't I was yeah button it yeah but I'm busy but I'm really I don't have time right now yeah but but but but that's a title that's a title of a chapter in the book entrepreneurial but so I'm getting in the way but for whatever reason this presence was not going to accept my my resistance I finally said you know I I don't have time that was an excuse and I don't want to start something you can't finish in all of that and ah I've got all this work lined up I was super busy for like the next four months in a row out of a lot of contracts anyway uh I lost or one however you wanna look at it because it was it was so profound and so powerful I just said all right I'm going I'm going I'm sorry I don't know what to write about so I sat down and I just started writing what what came to me and attacks it ended up being uh the book beyond out four steps in peace that one the best inspirational book of the year in two thousand ten and canada so it was an award winning book um incidentally I got started I wrote all saturday and sunday I came I went did my thing in england when I got back to the states all of my work for the next four months was wiped out my contracts were canceled her or ah post postponed we're in the part of the recession and it's easy to get rid of consultants and trainers and people like that when when you run out of money so cut cut cut cut cut I went from a super busy schedule teo nothing to do except what finish the book go I don't know where this is coming from but all right I'll finish the blasted book all right so I did and it's the book but that's that that's that it's letting go process incidentally this book was a premonition for me it was actually a warning it's a very tough times that were in my near future that I wasn't aware of and it was it was in some ways lifesaving for me because it got me through some of the toughest times in my life, and thus it was really it was a book for me that I didn't know that then allowed me to help a lot of the people along the way. So in fact, I, uh, a couple of years ago, I was working the big company up in canada and after a bout of fifteen month assignment with thiss company, I was finding my replacement because I come in, I teach and I find somebody to then replace me, and if I can't find him internally, you know, I helped them recruit somebody, and so the recruiting process for for this lead us to ah, guy from toyota, toyota sent, say, a master from toyota, because we couldn't have anybody internally that was quite ready to do what I was teaching them. So I was part of the final interview I'm sitting in, uh, this office with the executive vice president of this multi billion dollar company, big company and in walks the candidate we introduce ourselves and I introduced myself is john murphy, and he says, john murphy beyond doubt john murphy. Yeah yeah yeah nice line you know he had no idea that that I was going to be there a part of it but I said yeah how do you know that because I love that book I should really tell me about that because you know what we use it at toyota I said no kidding tom about that I had no idea and the executive vice president sitting there going do you guys know each other how did this happen? Right we never met each other before incidentally this thiss man named jacob abraham the man from toyota that way did under pirate he wrote the forward for his entrepreneur I asked him if he would write the foreword presenter pinar which he did but he uh he found his way into beyond out and then he used that to turn phones a lot of change in a toyota so these mystical things in life the synchronicity ease these these coincidences that seemed to happen I like to say there are no coincidences there are things going on that we just don't get we just don't understand it we're all ignorant basically in a lot of ways and the more we open up our minds and our hearts the more the life reveals thes awesome miracles and mysteries that so many of us get freaked out about perplexed with a little bit about myself a little bit more and and we we talked about just just the other day you know when you look at some of these headings murphy's law we've uh we've all heard that law before a lot of people joke about it but if anything can go wrong you know it will friday the thirteenth is scary it's superstitious it's it's bad luck okay goes right along with black cats which I happen to have and uh it's true I do my little sage there davis sage and she's just adorable and she's just black with green eyes but the terrible twos you know so you know here I am I'm my name's murphy born on friday the thirteenth I've almost killed myself twice by the age of three one time I was bouncing on my bed with my broad brother and sister and I went right through the second floor window land in the front yard at age too you know you could that's a broken neck waiting to happen and everything else and the other in the second time was so I get raced off to the hospital of course and I managed to survive and then the second the other one was I had a cold I was too and I had learned through observation that when you have a cold you don't feel well you take aspirin so I might just be the reason there's childproof caps now I don't know uh but no there was never any litigation anything like that but there was there was rushing me back to the hospital, because my mother discovered that eating a whole bottle of aspirin and and it took, got me off to the hospital, and they know they pumped my stomach, and again, I survived. But now you start to put thes dots together a little bit. You say, you know, what is this kid doomed for failure? You start to second guess yourself. You start to get doubtful, and, uh, and I most certainly was. So, you know, I grew up in in a faith that had me repeating a mantra every week that I'm not worthy. Couple. I'm not worthy with these other factors, and I'm a loser. I'm I'm just I'm doomed. And then, ah, the more I believe that, the more it seemed to present itself is truth. You mean, we manifest what we believe. So I think I run into all these crossroads. 00:18:03.328 --> 00:18:06. In nineteen seventy seven, at age seventeen, 00:18:07.85 --> 00:18:10. we had just won the state championship in michigan 00:18:10.57 --> 00:18:13. and football. All. We really excited about that, looking 00:18:13.42 --> 00:18:16. for the big colleges to come and look at us. And that 00:18:16.96 --> 00:18:19. summer and one of my entrepreneurial ventures, I had 00:18:19.88 --> 00:18:24. a lawn care business at about forty, customers, several 00:18:24.22 --> 00:18:27. people working for me, equipment, sixteen, seventeen 00:18:27.9 --> 00:18:29. years old and the business for a couple of years, 00:18:30.44 --> 00:18:31. a great little business. 00:18:33.77 --> 00:18:35. I run my foot through a lawn mower. 00:18:37.24 --> 00:18:39. Yeah that was you on now 00:18:40.84 --> 00:18:45. and I'm off to the hospital and uh seven days later 00:18:46.0 --> 00:18:50. in the hospital and two major surgeries over ten hours 00:18:50.29 --> 00:18:52. of surgery reconstructing my foot in this and that 00:18:53.84 --> 00:18:56. the surgeon said your football days are over my friend 00:18:56.5 --> 00:18:57. I'm so sorry you know 00:18:59.04 --> 00:19:01. we did the best we could you know you'd be lucky to 00:19:01.46 --> 00:19:03. walk again without limping so 00:19:04.74 --> 00:19:07. just trying to break it to you straight you know and 00:19:07.37 --> 00:19:10. after lots of tears and things like that here I am 00:19:10.19 --> 00:19:13. I'm not worthy friday the thirteenth and then go wrong 00:19:13.51 --> 00:19:15. it will here we go again 00:19:16.94 --> 00:19:20. you know this repeating of these these these karmic 00:19:20.03 --> 00:19:21. energies if you will 00:19:22.12 --> 00:19:24. that the good news is my my brother mother brought 00:19:24.77 --> 00:19:27. me a book that my grandfather had sent it was about 00:19:27.39 --> 00:19:29. courage and one of the stories in the book on courage 00:19:29.85 --> 00:19:32. was about dining rocky bleier rocky bleier 00:19:33.74 --> 00:19:35. graduated from notre dame is a great football player 00:19:35.97 --> 00:19:39. but too small toe really make it big everybody thought 00:19:39.75 --> 00:19:42. too slow obviously you didn't manage to get drafted 00:19:42.88 --> 00:19:44. in the last round for the pittsburgh steelers but 00:19:44.89 --> 00:19:47. before he ever played for the steelers you got drafted 00:19:47.12 --> 00:19:50. into vietnam he's over in the war fighting and he 00:19:50.1 --> 00:19:54. gets seriously hurt shrapnel all up and down in his 00:19:54.57 --> 00:19:58. foot in his leg gunfire in his hamstring rocky is 00:19:59.54 --> 00:20:02. I'm told you're never playing football again go home 00:20:02.17 --> 00:20:05. and you know sell cars or insurance or something, 00:20:05.0 --> 00:20:08. but not playing football, and I'm reading this book 00:20:08.39 --> 00:20:11. now going oh, man, no, I thought I had it bad this 00:20:11.15 --> 00:20:13. guy's got shrapnel and also, 00:20:14.96 --> 00:20:18. anyway, make a long story short. Rocky, rehabbed, 00:20:19.46 --> 00:20:23. put mind over matter rehab for three years and was 00:20:23.09 --> 00:20:26. back on the pittsburgh steelers team faster than he 00:20:26.37 --> 00:20:29. ever was before became the starting tailback for the 00:20:29.51 --> 00:20:31. pittsburgh steelers and won four super bowls. 00:20:33.06 --> 00:20:36. At last count, the only twenty nine athletes have 00:20:36.92 --> 00:20:39. won four super bowls, and I know it's more than that 00:20:39.33 --> 00:20:43. today. But it's, interesting because I'm sitting here 00:20:43.13 --> 00:20:45. reading this and then I'm thinking to myself, well, 00:20:46.52 --> 00:20:48. he can do what I could do it, that kind of thing, 00:20:48.76 --> 00:20:52. mind over matter and two years later, I was playing 00:20:52.6 --> 00:20:53. at notre dame, 00:20:55.06 --> 00:20:57. same school rocky did. By the way, is that a coincidence, 00:20:57.24 --> 00:20:59. or is that synchronicity? I don't know here's the 00:20:59.73 --> 00:21:02. fun part of that story fifteen years later. 00:21:04.7 --> 00:21:07. I'm on stage with rocky bleier. Speaking at a big 00:21:07.28 --> 00:21:10. event was executor and some other folks, and I get 00:21:10.49 --> 00:21:12. to spend the day with this guy who doesn't know me, 00:21:12.74 --> 00:21:16. really. And so I told him the story ofthe stage, said 00:21:16.31 --> 00:21:18. iraqi, I gotta tell you something, it goes, you know, 00:21:18.9 --> 00:21:20. you you probably helped a lot of people around the 00:21:20.87 --> 00:21:23. world that you don't even know it. I want to give 00:21:23.29 --> 00:21:27. you one data point, and I told him the story, and 00:21:27.04 --> 00:21:30. he said, uh, wow, he said, would you introduce me? 00:21:33.76 --> 00:21:36. I said power means I said that can't tell the story 00:21:36.62 --> 00:21:40. you go see I expected that come on man right so sure 00:21:40.64 --> 00:21:42. enough I I did and it was a wonderful thing by the 00:21:42.7 --> 00:21:44. way he gave me a wonderful endorsement for the book 00:21:44.6 --> 00:21:46. I had just come out with that at that time could reinvent 00:21:46.99 --> 00:21:51. yourself no surprise with that title and these synchronicity 00:21:51.42 --> 00:21:54. is go on and on and on and it's just the more we get 00:21:54.12 --> 00:21:57. out of our own way and we just be present not distracted 00:21:57.66 --> 00:22:00. by the future in the past when the mind is elsewhere 00:22:00.72 --> 00:22:02. else we missed thes synchronicity is we missed these 00:22:02.86 --> 00:22:06. awakening moments so that was seventy seven in nineteen eighty eight that's the year I got fired from my job on uh the time my wife was pregnant with our second child not a good time to be out of work and in debt and all these other things and certainly not the best time to start a new business from scratch without much capital a lot of creativity before capital that business turns twenty nine in two days now it turns twenty six in two days so there you know there is another one of those mind over matter things the point of all of these these in two thousand I lost my father and that was a really tough time for me two thousand nine nine I lost my wife that was a really tough time for me, so each of these challenges each of these adversities, each of these moments of truth in our lives, give us a chance to look at things as half full or half empty, so to speak. And what I've learned from all of this is that there's, a silver lining in all of this, and anything that doesn't kill us makes us stronger. You've heard me say that before so that's, the sentra, poseur and all of us, I wanted to give you some some specifics and even some personal things. That's, those enterpreneurs, all of us. It is alive and thriving and fearless and devoted tio health and well being it's. Just that we, I don't know it. Sometimes we get in the way. The book is entrepreneur. Challenges us to ask some very simple, yet very profound questions. You've heard me reference these now for, for several sessions, chapter one's. All about what if. What if I start this business up? What if I what if I create a new business? What if I leave the business I'm in and and do something different? What if I write a book? I started radio show, but if I start a social media company, what there's, just endless, what ifs? We we live in a giant playground you know there's nothing like on eternal spirit and eternal soul coming to the earth just tow tow play and manifest something interesting and that's essentially why we're here we're here tio to create so what if I do whatever then the questions why and why not you've heard me reference those who I do it why not do it that's that yin and yang balance that's that here are all the reasons why here's the value add and then here are all the yeah but so are the resistance factors the failure modes the force that's the force field analysis we've we've talked about entrepreneurs are doing that all the time because we got it we're looking at balance all right so we're looking at if this is really gonna work we've got to find the right balance the cost benefit type balance if you will who whole chapter on who ho can help me now it's a huge mistake and I've said this before to think that we do it all by ourselves just cause we're sola preneurs the that's that's simply arrogant we have to recognize that were part of a larger system were part of a larger culture and the only way we're really going to thrive and be successful is to surround ourselves with people that want us to thrive and be successful they're helping us all right? You know we've got good people helping us build our brand helping us publicize our work we've got people looking out for us and we've got their back you know, we we find ways to partner virtually or or we're legally whatever the relationship happens to be so who who can help me who's been there before who's done this and you've heard me referenced people you know, going to seminars to listen to people who were out in front of me doing something similar and learning from them beating their books listening to their audios buying programs like this just to just to listen in and review it okay so who can help me with the how which is the next chapter how do I do this how do I learn how to let go how do I learn how to write a business plan? How doe I actually execute that business? But how do I run kaizen events to make things better and better and better how do I write a book? I bought a book on how to write a book so who can help me with the how dorothy applebaum I wrote a book called how to get happily published and um I don't know maybe it was a fifteen twenty dollars book at the time I'm not sure what the return on that investment was but it's astronomical because from that book it led me to two currently eighteen published books mmm and that who is somebody I've never even met it was a who wrote a book and so I virtually gained from that so there's another thank you I can offer all right so how I mean this is the planning things that we went through the steps the sequencing the gant charts the you know the left brain kind of thing we've got to have the left brain stuff here including the when and there was a question I was asked you know when do you start this stuff and I could say well I kind of like cats philosophy yesterday yeah when do I start using this stuff right now all right this isn't something you put off by the way you know you put this off on a shelf for you put it away in a file chances of that coming back out again get pretty slim especially if you're super busy so you execute right now I'm a big fan of the just in time training model okay if I'm gonna train you how to do a causal circle I'll show you how to do one and then we're going to do a real one I'm gonna show you how to do a reality tree and then we're going to do one a real one so in this course we just played around with the tools and uh in the in the real world we would play around with them and then we we'd actually go go live immediately so that's the wind then there's that whole chapter on the butts we're going to continue to run into yeah but this isn't a good time yeah but we don't really have the resource is yeah but everybody's busy yeah but we already tried it before yeah but we're already doing lene and it doesn't seem to work it's just countless excuses okay to be resistant what are the yeah buts and how do we overcome those yeah but then there's a chapter called so what so what chapter is about not going through life looking through the rear view mirror not going through life patting yourself on the back for the trophy you got in high school or the award you won five years ago ten years ago which a lot of people do their they're going through life looking in the rear view mirror as if their their summit of their life the peak of their life was when they were twenty or thirty or whatever and that was an awakening for me I remember going back to a reception years ago and a lot of the people that I was talking to we're talking about the great times in life as if they were all over they were all behind you know back in the day and it was sad because I'm sitting there thinking what there is so much in front of me that's exciting and motivating I still feel like I'm on a a great climate great you know a great ride not not I'm not sitting around you know, reflecting on stuff that happened a long time ago I appreciate it but the idea that so what is let it go so what if you wrote a book so what if you you know uh you developed a seminar or whatever and so what if you started a business so what a lot of us just let pride get in our way and pride is ah I'll come back to that but pride can be a very dangerous obstacle okay and then finally the last chapter's all about now what so now what and his entrepreneur approaches now what with we'll see because if we spend too much time planning out into the future we're not not we're not in the present there's ah there's a spot in eighty two this entrepreneur where it's uh you know it's not that we're not planning ahead but it's that we're not living life in the future either okay we're looking out for where we're going but we're in the now you know if I'm a shooting free throws or I'm trying to hit a golf ball on my mind's wandering off into the future whatever I could just I could I could easily miss so again that focus that intensity on the now is very powerful factor it's a practical application stall of this zen thinking if you will number one is be curious this entrepreneur and all of us is very curious I wonder what's out there, I wonder what would happen if the what if so, we can learn to be more and more curious, but to be curious, you've got a suspend judgment, you've got to suspend resistance, you have to be contemplated. Be curious. So, for example, I was given a workshop in salt lake city two weeks ago and had somebody in there who claimed to be a skilled black belt, so to speak. And at the beginning of the work stops, I liketo ask, what does this lean? Six sigma, what does operational excellence mean to you in one word, or to one or two words, I want a very lean answer. What does it mean? This what comes to mind when you hear it and people go around and they, you know, they share all kinds of things, got to this guy and he says, said, waste of time. Yeah waste of time I thought well that's interesting so I was curious and I said to him I bet you're not the only one who thinks that and I looked at the rest of the audience they're like of a number when they thought I can't believe he said that but instead of trying to be confrontational or whatever with him I said I was curious so so what's your experience it with it then well he was one of these black belts who was trained in a lot of statistical analysis and things like that and there wasn't really a lot of support behind it at the company and the company you know it just it was a flavor of the month they the company didn't get it the culture never really changed and he was part of that so he just perceived it as ah a waste of time and it was honest it was honest okay, so I'm bi curious you pay attention and pay attention to who you pay attention to and pay attention to what you pay attention too because there's a lot of people that want to give you advice that have no idea what they're talking about be careful with that examine your tendencies because hidden within one tendency or habit are thousands of subconscious thoughts so if you want to know what's going on in your subconscious mind examine your habits, examine your tendencies have a tendency to get anxious in certain situations they have a tendency to get nervous tendency to get angry what do your tendencies because buried it within those tendencies air subconscious thoughts programs that you're running on and that's how you uncover him you contemplate and you look at your tendencies again we've talked over and over again about assumptions to challenge your own assumptions find him find him and challenge him learn from your mistakes I certainly have ah lot of experience at that connect the dots the dots are these moments in our lives that might seem to be disconnected but an example of that for me when you know I wrote the first book was called pulling together made lots of mistakes but my older brother actually he read it and he said you know what you ought to write an allegory go ahead who yeah it sounds like a good idea what's an allegory I have no idea what he's like well it's like I'm not a novel like a business novel so you really ought to write a on allegory why do you say that? Because could you tell some really good stories and pulling together you should write the whole book like a story that sounds like a challenge with that so then I wrote a book called agent of change and it is a story in fact I dedicated it to jon pierre surround the man I spoke of earlier because he was an agent of change in my life but this was a this was a fictitious general manager who went to a seminar so to speak all pulling together which is where the book pulling together came from it came back to a culture of resistance and difficulty and and he wanted to now figure out a way to lead people through this change and he was running it all kinds of resistance so this was through his eyes how do you apply what what we learned in pulling together how do you apply this stuff? And one of the big obstacles in that book was a guy that he was his old friends with and he was the plant manager of this tip co the typical company plant and the end of the day hey had to make a call you go back to core values in a line change would be exchanged in exchange so this guy gets it his name's wayne wayne gets booted and the whole culture takes takes notice not wayne's out so I've got a university friend of mine who's reading this book agent of change incidentally agent of change got endorsed by some very big names and people picked up on it even though I made all these mistakes she's reading this book she says well john you know what? This is perfect for an allegory for a sequel I got this oh yeah you got to write the sequel to you've got to write the story now from wayne's perspective he's mad is he can't believe he just got fired what's the way you know what's he going to do he's fifty two years old he's out of work and he's he's afraid and yada yada so I wrote a book called reinvent yourself and it's an allegory from wayne's perspective and then there's a sequel to that and then there's a prequel to the other one so these air connecting the dots and got to know what they're not even my ideas they're just people saying you had to do this you do that I'm listening I'm curious and paying attention and then I'm executing that's that's his entrepreneur I'm taking the ideas and doing something with them where a lot of people just sit there and dream about him so you've got to take some risk got to go for it that's connecting the dots it's taken the risks it's it's it's letting go toe let flow letting go of inhibition and excuses and yeah butts and all that stuff and focusing on allowing not resisting so you know focusing on allowing leads us into something called the law of attraction one of the most powerful lessons I've ever learned a lot of attraction essentially says that the essence of that which is like itself is drawn meaning that from an energetic frequency perspective like draws like misery loves company if we live in a state of misery misery we're asking for more and more misery it will find us energetically it will find us so like draws like hmm wow so if I go through life stressed what am I drawing into my life more stress more to be stressed about if I go through life doubtful what am I driving into my life or doubt more things to be doubtful of the law of attraction is just it's not playing games the law of attraction is that we are drawing into our lives whatever we're feeling from the heart I'll come back to that but that's that's what's going on so pay attention to how you feel every day because if you feel stressed if you feel anxious if you feel scared if you feel mad you feel whatever you're asking for more that's the law of attraction very powerful okay and we're communicating with this universal energy through our heart shock ra to our heart center and it was something called heart coherence we're going to play with that just a few minutes so indeed this is the mystery behind we reap what we sow so if you're going to do an ai po diagram you that most certainly have to include on the input side how do I feel how do I feel because that input is absolutely critical to our personal outputs and fear by the way a lot of people say you know what? What if I was the ceo of a big company with millions of dollars and I had all these, you know, I had all this wealth and extravagance. I wouldn't be afraid. Let me tell you something. Some of the most fearful people I've ever met are very senior levels, and corporations got nothing to do with position and title, nothing at all. Pascal uh shared this quote with us that the heart has reasons that reason cannot know that similar to something you know einstein said where the heart is more connected with the right side of the brain if you will the intuitive that gut feel not so much the rational reasoning side if you will so the heart has reasons that reason cannot know this is the mystery behind how did you ever end up playing football again when you were told you could and your foot was all messed up same thing with rocky the heart didn't know any better my heart was in it scientists have now found that the heart to head ratio is ten to one when it comes to power the heart is ten times more powerful than head when it comes to teo energetic impact so this is where you know this is where we see miracles if you will sometimes so this is the ring of peace I mentioned before from the book beyond doubt on this is these are the four steps you know the way start with let it be let b is focus on b be what be aware be curious be present be patient be empathetic be understanding b b maybe now get get away from the future get away from the past meditate be present get in touch with uh with your heart your heart center and we have ah software to test to test that so to speak to see just how have centred we are okay and then from there let b and you start to you know get get ground to get present you start to learn things that you need to let go of okay so what do I need to let go of my maybe I need to let go some of the distractions in my life some of the non value added activity okay some of the emotional baggage I carry around or whatever the fears the doubts the grief okay the guilt let that go and here's what happens when we let go of this emotional baggage and we let go of this wait we've been carrying around not really we feel lighter and that's where the term enlightenment comes from we feel a lot lighter like free or a lot more joyful but we see things so differently the very people who used to really annoy us and really bother us and aggravate us don't anymore way actually see them now with more compassion were understanding and we recognize there actually great teachers because they've taught us patients they've taught us empathy that taught us understanding that's the yin yang balance we might never have figured out before so these challenges we have in life are great lessons in disguise their great teachings but if we're so caught up on everything else that's going on we completely missed the mystery of it so we let's see which way c with a whole different set of eyes, a whole different set of under understanding. This is a paradigm shift. So this is the whole idea of a shifting paradigm. And then we see things different only in the mind's eye. We flow. Another way to play with this tool is to say, work backwards. Imagine a time in your life when you were in great flow. You were writing. You were singing. You were dancing. You were painting. You know, you were doing whatever you have. You get into flow around everybody's been in a state of flow and that state of timelessness, that peak productivity. So you're in your zone. You're in your thing. What? Well, how'd you get there does the question to ask. And if you look backwards through this model, how did I get there? Well, I envisioned it. I mean, I could I could see it. We manifest what we see in the mind's eye. We become what we see. All right. Well, how did you see it? Well, I had to get cem blinders off. I had to let go of certain things I had to and let go. All right, well, would you have to let go of things I discovered in my current state that were weighing me down? So this is not exactly an application of domestic but it's a very useful tool to just be very contemplated. Contemplated means looking at things without judgment, just contemplating. I don't want the most powerful formulas I know ever they've come I've come across is this tee times equals f so the tea is thinking that he is the emotion and the fbis feeling if we're communicating through the universe so to speak energetically from the heart the heart shock with the feeling and we want to walk into a nevada kaizen event or whatever give a presentation to whatever we do and we want to be grounded we want to be poised and we want to be a confident and composed come on feel but free and joyful and not all freaked out we want to feel that way we've got to take example take a look at a couple of important uh factors because the way we feel is going to draw energy and that it's the law of attraction all right so thinking which is really that if you understand the seven shockers in the whole energy system and the human being the top the top three with crown shock ra and the third eye the shock ra and the throw chaka are all related to thinking all right the emotional shock was of the bottom three the root shock ra and the bottom three if you will and then the heart shock was right there in the center and this this is where the shock was me and this is where the community command center is so to speak so when we're drawing in very joyful energy were also emitting it and that's that light in the room impact we have. So thea and this is the field that einstein spoke of. So it's the heart shocker that communicates with field so how do we how do we affect the heart? The heart feeling and the secret is is that what we think? And the emotion that drives it? So think about it this way, there's only two true, actually there's only one true emotion. If you go back into into biblical times, then you really look at what the one true emotion is love. Okay, which is which is a form of fearlessness. It's, just universal love. And then the absence of love could be called fear, which would be then the second emotion. But those were really the only too true emotions. So if I'm thinking about something like, geez, I could lose my job. That's a thought some people have or I could really screw this up. All right? I'm thinking something like that. And it's driven by fear what's the feeling going to be anxiety, stress freaking out. This is what's going on. What if that same thought is driven by love and, uh, and fearlessness, I could lose my job. And this is now love. What might feeling that sound like? I'll land on my feet could be a blessing in disguise. I'll figure out things will be okay that's a whole different paradigm right there and it's the same thinking, but it's driven by two different emotions so what's going on in our head. What do we thought? Thoughts are we carrying around day after day, many of which your subconscious and what emotion is driving it, and that's going to take us into what we feel and it's through that feeling, then that we are drawing in a response? So when we want to really inspire people and we want to really get people to take some risk or including ourselves, remember this formula what? Think positive, there's your zen and feel it from the from a r emote it, if you will, from a perspective of love on origin of love and not fear and you're gonna feel great and other people going so I don't get it, how come you don't know how come you don't seem to get stressed out? You don't seem to get all worried about stuff. Because I have a different thoughts system. And I have a different way of expressing it, that kind of thing. So here are those two emotions, if you will, there's the love, emotion, and then the fear, emotion, if you will, often referred to as the ego, and this is what's called the map a map of consciousness. David hawkins has done some wonderful work on this and others. Esther hicks, people like that. But on a on energy frequency level, the lowest energies we have calibrated our shame and guilt. So if we live in life with a lot of shame, a lot of guilt where we have people trying to make us feel guilty or make us feel ashamed. And then some of us have experienced that if we're down in this energy level well, with the law of attraction, what we call in for no more of the same right. Apathy, you know, hopelessness, despair, depression. Not a good energy to be in you start to see this with people we've got you know we've got people on our team who are they who live in grief there they're just they're sad there they've got grievances with all kinds of people they're you know they're there I'll get even their revengeful you know you know an eye for an eye kind of thing it's uh that's it it's all in the grief grief energy level and all of this could be calibrated using applied kinesiology so you've got actually david hawkins developed developed a log rhythm a table or you can actually test ah person's consciousness level all right on a scale of zero to a thousand to find out yeah and you can also you can actually a calibrate the consciousness field a level of things like songs books movies certainly not just people countries cos organisations you can actually calibrate the energy level over that he's an applied community kinesiology which is which is deeply profound so then we go up from grief to fear you go up to from fear into attachment you know lack and lust and greed all right jealousy things like that get up into anger a lot of times anger comes from greed and jealousy and things like that you get up into pride high school is better than your school my country's better in your country my religions right years is wrong you get into this pride about awards have fought and fought for years on pride's a lot people think pride's a good thing on an energetic level well it's better than his but it's still considered a negative energy it is until we get to courage I like to call it the bridge of courage until we get to courage which is more or less neutral and we get into this whole neutrality zone that's where we really let things go and we get into acceptance all right which is a contemplated thing its acceptance it's not right or wrong it's like the great mystic roomie wrote there is a field beyond right and wrong I'll meet you there all right there's a field beyond right and wrong I'll meet you there this is up here and you get into love on conditional of you know what you can do whatever you want say whatever you want I'm never going to stop loving you that's within my control you can't take that away that's unconditional you get into joy this is a wonderful full energy to be in because well number one it feeds on itself more joyful you are the more joy you call into your life that's the law of attraction it's effortless you don't have to try you can't try to be joyful it's either real and authentic or it isn't you get up in the piece which is just gratitude you live you just live every day with gratitude all right and then you get up into enlightenment and there's whole levels of alight mint, because it goes up to very get you get, you get up to a level where you actually you, you can no longer it's time to go from the body from the human body. It's. Time to go. All right, and there are great masters on this planet today. Calibrated. It is very, very, very high levels. All right, it's, uh, on this scale, it's. Quite powerful.
