There's talk of self education being the new norm. At least that's what self help guru's Tony Robbins, Dean Graziosi & Russell Brunson are saying. So I signed up for their Knowlege Business Blueprint and it seemed like the terror barrier of all mutha's came out of hiding!
Bob Proctor calls it the terror barrier when you want to do something better for yourself and your insecure subconscous mind steps in trying to create havoc or tell you all the reasons something won't work. It doesn't happen often to me, but at least I'm aware when it does happen and it's happening now. I join the very mastermind group that I've been looking for but my subby is trying to tell me it's not for me or I don't have time or how am I ever gonna get my film completed or reminding me about that $1,500 dollar balance.
Those things above might be true, but I'm gonna stick to the Blueprint plan. Basically what the guys are saying is the new industry is people making money off their existing knowledge or someone else's knowledge. Although the terror barrier wants me to cancel, I have to remember that I'm investing in my life and that's call self education. Educating ourselves doesn't stop after high school or college. Learning is life long and our minds need to stay energized with new knowledge or become a couch potato weed smoking gamer.
Scientists talk about AI as if it's the future, but it's been here awhile. We just don't have robots that look like people in the home yet...Look around people...your privacy is dying.
Artificle Intelligence "AI" is deep and I'm concerned because when I can upload a picture and the AI program tells me what it is, that's a problem. You don't think so? That means I can be profiled based on pictures. Wow! This means we're playing chess with our lives and freedom. You don't play chess? That means you must live an almost perfect life. You wanna upload photos of your guns with a hoodie covering your face? I can assure you that you're on an agencies gun list with your name because even if you hide your face the software can detect your body mass, hands, eyes, lips, nose etc. and piece together you! You wanna show all your illegal "cash" from selling whatever? All it would take is for someone to send your name and a snapshot to the IRS and get a REWARD for turning you in!
You can't hide and it's F-up. People will say if you ain't doing nothing wrong then you have nothing to hide and why worry. Some will say privacy is overated. I say privacy is all we got and when we don't have it we can't really be free to be ourselves. AI is making us check ourselves or personal censorship. You wanna say something hateful, political or express your passionate opinion? You'll think twice and if you think you will disguise youself that's were AI will let the world know it's you. We can run but we can't hide...anymore.
They say success is a journey and to enjoy the ride. I think success is your attitude while on the journey, because when shit hits the fan and it will, it'll be all about your attitude and how you handle the situation. Will you say F-it and keep going or will you wilt like a dried up flower?
I updated I Hate My Neighbor website but I'm still working on it. This is about the 4th time I had to update it but I think it gets better.
I keep evolving and learning about myself. The latest litebulb is how the hell could what happened in my early years like 5 years old have anything to do with now? I wasn't making any decisions when I was five years old so what's up? I've come to realize it wasn't me those psychiatrist types were talking about, but those around me like my mother, father, step fathers, aunts, uncles, family friends, strangers etc. and that my little mind was sucking in their info about life and storing it for the future.
What I learned recently is why don’t I have a college degree? Of any type, but don't feel sorry for me. I'm sure when my mom and her friends were smoking weed and drinking us kids was absorbing in our mind computers what we saw. Maybe they were talking about how the system was unfair or they didn't have the time or money for school. Whatever the reason I rationalized that I don't need a degree to be successful and that may be true, but could it also be a mental barrier about education from...gulp...childhood? I'm recognizing what might have happened as a child now is because I'm digging into my mind computer about my beliefs. Why is this even a big deal? haha only those that know...know :)
The big deal for me and even you is there might be something in our belief systems that we picked up as a child regarding education, money, lifestyle, cars, spouses etc. that’s keeping us from being all we can be. Some people never realize this. I’m glad I understand some of the beliefs that have held me back from being the best version of me that I can be. So the 82 units that I have accrued through my education I’m compiling so I can get my Accounting degree.
Oh yeah back to working on the film Neighbor! and the website and the never ending editing...but I'm grateful!
I planned a networking event and got my face cracked. I'm in Lancaster, Calfornia which is basically the desert. Not a problem. I'm one of those enterprising types and if I see opportunity I jump on it. Well this time is the final time I jump into a situation without all the facts.
You know what? I won't bore you with the situation, but I've learned my last lesson about starting a new venture when I have existing ones I need to focus on. I literally had to stop my Get Off Your Butt Networking campaign while right in the middle of it. It's absolutley crazy because overnight I decided I was going to round up all the business people and have them attend my networking event. Not to say that it wasn't possible it's just that I thought the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce was a graveyard and it turns out they got it going on and got the networking covered so no need for me to waste my time trying to convince business owners to get off their butts and network!
The lesson here is to stop my mind from jumping into situations without all the facts and to seriously focus on one project at a time until completion. Like, "I Hate My Neighbor!" Yeah like I don't know that...I lost the Neighbor website a few months ago and have to start if from scratch again! A fellow director told me to scrap I Hate My Neighbor but he doesn't realize that I can't quit nor will the actors let me live it down. It's because of this director that I got my mojo back and decided to really get seriuous as it will be 4 years and the Neighbor project should be completed by now.
Such as life it's not time yet even if the actors are growing gray hair...
