Stop Caring What Other People Think - Based on these insights!

(In email, click on the post title in order to read the entire post.) 


Read this article to learn why you have an “irrational unproductive obsession with what other people think of you”.  If you “get” it and then do the simple exercises, this could drastically improve your life!!!!

Yes, 50,000 years ago, social acceptance meant everything, in a “small tribe without whose support you might die or not live well. “
“Because of this, humans evolved an over-the-top obsession with what others thought of them—a craving for social approval and admiration, and a paralyzing fear of being disliked.”

Though society and the world have changed such that “social survival is no longer a real concept” we still have with us a “large, hungry, and easily freaked-out woolly mammoth who still thinks it’s 50,000 BC.”

Part of growing away from the control of the woolly mammoth is realizing that:

1.  It has a low IQ, with poor understanding and some bad decisions and myriad fears that are totally irrational!!   (See Understanding How The Primitive Brain’s Thoughts Work - Not Undestandng Perpetuates Ideas That Keep You Stuck.)

2. That its efforts are counterproductive,

If you realize these, then you can’t help, methinks, at least questioning them and also not “obeying” them.  
(I am writing a piece now on No Longer A Victim Of Emotions, Impulses, People, Conditions...Or Anything.)

Also, see the list of irrational beliefs in the article!

Some people (few) see that social acceptance does not really matter in terms of actual consequences (which are about zero).  (As discussed in Notice: Nothing Actually Happened - One Of The Greatest Philosophical Insights!)

Once you’ve conquered this area, most of your fears, approval seeking, and being controlled by others will disappear!  This is our goal. And then you can “play” at life, creating what YOU want that is of actual value to you!

How do you  recover from this?  Follow the exercises in this article (Make up a sheet of paper and put in the question or exercises on it and answer it in writing - it must be in writing or you’ll not make progress!!!!

So, now, you can read this article and let it go the way of most people’s non-action, or you can do it completely...and change your life!  

Your choice!!!!!!!!

Learn now, pay only a % of income for two years (computer...)


Lambda School teaches you now, all online, without tuition now, and then, only if you make 50K+/year, 17% of your income for two years.

This is the school of the future, I believe, where we base everything on results (and creating the benefits sufficient to be able to pay from a part of the gain!).

I would hope to do the same for The Life Management Alliance, where people, later, “pay” other people’s tuition, but only after they know they have made their lives so much better that they can afford, and want to, “pay if forward.”

If this strikes your interest, either directly or just conceptually, take a look at Lambda School.

You cannot live a better life, unless you do what is necessary to learn how to live a better life.  Relying on random chance, or hope, does not work.

So the question is “how much is your life worth to you?”.  Will you invest the number of hours needed to elevate it?   (See Allocating My Time To Life  Learning/Implementation.)

Creating calm when anxious - easy, scientific, evidence based, simple method

(In email, click on the post title in order to read the entire post.) 

We have identified scientific, “evidence-based” techniques to reliably and easily change/cause our emotional state, yet people still default to letting their emotions govern their lives.  These are easy and very doable AND I absolutely recommend that you learn and use these as one of your primary means to creating a life of peace of mind and mastery of emotions...and happiness.

From Waldman’s book,  Words Can Change Your Brain, the start of Chapter 2:

“First ask yourself this question: how relaxed or tense do you feel right now? Next become as relaxed as you possibly can. Take three deep breaths and yawn a few times; this is one of the most effective ways to reduce physical, emotional, and neurological stress.

Now stretch your arms above your head, drop them to your side, and shake out your hands. Gently roll your head around to loosen up the muscles in your neck and shoulders, then take three more deep breaths. Check your body: do you feel more relaxed or tense? Now check your mind: do you feel more alert or tired or calm?”

If you don’t use this as a primary technique you will be missing out on the opportunity of being the master of your emotions and you’ll be unnecessarily leaving yourself to be the victim of negative beliefs/thoughts/emotions!!!!!

Use this as part of your repertoire, first, before you go to the more sophisticated, complex and/or harder to implement techniques (that you also MUST learn for a great life)

(Relates to The Vital Skill Of Emotional Mastery, on the site.)

IS ALCOHOL GOOD FOR OUR HEALTH AND HEART? OR IS THAT A POPULAR MYTH?

(In email, click on the post title in order to read the entire post.) 

First, I make a couple of comments, then watch at least the key video for proof:

No, drinking alcohol is not good for your heart or health, contrary to the myths and erroneous incorrect “studies”.  It is a carcinogenic (cancer causing) toxin that negatively affects blood sugar and sleep. It “numbs” the brain and causes malfunctioning.  

Well, how about just a little poison?  

Well, uh…

It’s poison.  Don’t drink it.  Use better, and easy, methods for relaxation and we could, actually, have better relationships when we are fully conscious.  

Any person who uses critical, rational thinking would come to that conclusion. However, most people will just us “selective” evidence to support their existing beliefs and “deselect” and ignore evidence to the contrary.

Which group are you in?

The fact is, contrary to popular opinion:

“Cutting down on drinking -- even for light or moderate drinkers -- benefits the heart.”

Quotes from WebMd:

“Although we’ve heard for years that moderate drinking is good for our hearts, several recent studies have questioned that long-held belief. And earlier this year, the World Health Organization issued a dire warning about cancer and alcohol. No amount of alcohol is safe, the report said.”

“Cardiologist Michael Shapiro, DO, is not convinced that any amount of alcohol is good for us.

“It’s a common perception that alcohol, and red wine in particular, is helpful for the heart, but that perception is not based on any particularly good evidence,” Shapiro says. “If there is any benefit from alcohol -- and that’s not entirely clear -- it’s probably modest.””

Watch this brief, great, scientific, video:



“For the cancers that have been identified as being causally linked with alcohol, we are absolutely certain that alcohol causes these cancers," says Dr. Rehm.”
