Life Perspective

Welcome back. So I just want to use this a little halfway point. You've been laying the foundations of something. And to recap, we've been laying the foundations of what it is, or what is the point you've come to as a human being. But bear in mind, we really only are at the halfway point. But we've been uncovering what you've conclude about yourself, what you've concluded about others, and what you've concluded about life itself. Now the one thing I do want to make sure of is that you don't get too hung up on the examples that I've been given you. It's critical that you look in your own life and you start to see for yourself. And one way to do this, is just observe yourself right now. What's going on with you? What's your experience of yourself? If your life is going pretty well, that's great. Then you can maybe recollect some of those times when maybe it wasn't going quite as well. And you might notice some of those internal dialogues about yourself or your social conclusions, or your...

life conclusions. But here's the thing. All of these, like I said earlier, come together. They locate you at a very specific place on a map. Now, you can imagine this for a moment. Your experience of yourself is from a very distinct place and what I'm proposing is, that place is given by those conclusions. So as you make your way through life, you're trying to get past them. You're trying to overcome them. You're trying to produce results and accomplishments, but still grounded in those same conclusions. Now we've all heard the phrase, point of view, or the phrase, a view of life. The reality is you and I don't live like we've got a point of view. We don't live like we've got a view of life. We live as if we're seeing things the way they are. It's other people who have points of view. It's other people who have a view of life. It's not you or I. But you see, the thing is, I don't think it really captures what we're talking about here when you use the term point of view, or view of life. I prefer to call it your point of experience. That is, there's a very definitive locale, there's a very definitive place on the map where you exist and you experience life from that locale. Your job in life, is to actually get out of it, is to expand, is to take new things on. Get a new job. Get in a relationship. Have children. All of it, to somehow take you away from this locale, but at the same time, you always end up back in it again. And that really is the conundrum of being a human being. No matter how things change, the more they stay the same. And the older you get, the more polarized you become. You become more like you than you were before. In fact, if you're someone who's in your 30's, or in your 40's, you'll notice, there's a very definitive way that you are now. There's a very you that exists. And, that you is organized around overcoming what you've concluded. So in the next section, we're going to deal with, we're going to uncover who are you. Who are you as a human being? How do you strategize this life? How do you turn life around and make it go your way? I'll see you there.

Class Description

Are you tired of running into the same problems over and over again? People tend to find themselves in the same predicaments over and over, making the same excuses about why they’re not seeing positive changes in their lives. Gary John Bishop gives you the tools and advice you need to break this cycle and become a truly better version of yourself.

"Wake up to the miracle you are," he directs. "Here's what you've forgotten: You're a fu*king miracle of being."

It isn't other people that are standing in your way, it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive, it's yourself. And only you have the ability to overcome these obstacles.

Gary’s tough-love approach is, BS-free, honest, no-nonsense, and will help you move past self-imposed limitations.

In this class, you will learn why:

  • You do what you do and why it doesn’t work
  • You constantly feel like you are stuck in a cycle
  • The same issues keep coming up and why you keep using the same excuses
  • You can’t stop yourself from ruining your life
  • You always sabotage yourself

Students in this class are challenged to level-up their lives with measurable and tangible actions.

By the end of this workshop, students will feel in more control of their conclusions, they’ll identify them and be able to adjust accordingly. It’s time to open up the ideas that you only dream about and start talking about making them reality.

With Gary’s strategic guidance, you’ll sort out the things that keep you from advancing in life and blaze a new trail to happiness and fulfillment. 

Gary John Bishop is the author of Unfu*k Yourself, Get Out of Your Head and Into Your Life

Gary, thank you for sharing your insights and building our understanding by "connecting the dots" of life and living as human beings. Your message and words are powerful and thought-provoking. More importantly, life-changing for those who wish to get out of their box, over their barriers, and live an authentic and genuinely free life beyond the velvet rope. These lessons were paced well and I appreciated the flow of connected thoughts and reasoning. Your message and points are both simple and complex at the same time. They create knowledge and understanding but are only useful if applied and put into action. Just like most of philosophy! You did a great job of identifying steps needed for personal change without reducing the need for individual action. Your bonus message of keeping one's promises to oneself sealed the deal. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I love Gary John Bishop's materials. I've read his book several times, watched all of his YouTube and Facebook videos (more than one) and I'm taking part in his year-long personal development program. When I saw this course I jumped in head first. After purchasing, I discovered it was roughly 70 min of material. Don't get me wrong, I'm still recommending this program, I'm just wondering if it would have a larger appeal and reach if it were more affordable or included more material (length). Had I taken the time to discover for myself, the actual content of the course, I would have skipped it and put the money toward the tuition of the next year-long program. Having completed the material of this course, I'm now looking at my conclusions in a different way. I've done a lot of ontological work through reading and interaction so a lot of this is a new perspective on familiar information. If I were new to this conversation, I know my mind would be blown by this course. Gary John Bishop has an approachable delivery and accessible way of presenting his philosophy so that participants actually gain access to what is possible for them. I don't regret purchasing this course but I do wish there was more material included.
