In light of the recent antics by urgirlzwitme/thebest, I feel the need to clarify a few things for current and future new members.
-My methods may not be the most popular...my methods may not give you a warm fuzzy or bring a smile to your face...my methods may not make me many fans...BUT...my methods ARE effective...my methods ARE genuine...and...hopefully...my methods WILL make you take a hard honest look at YOURSELF. Change starts from within. In today's society of zero self responsibility/accountability, we are pretty much programmed to dodge the harsh truths about ourselves and quick to point the finger to lay blame. Oh, I'm fat because of McDonalds...not because I'm a lazy sack of shit with no self discipline.
-Do I have an ego? Of course I do...everyone does. A healthy ego is natural...an unchecked super ego, however, is not. When I get on you guys about ego, I'm not being a hypocrite...I'm already at the mindstate that most of you are striving to get to, therefore, I already know, understand and apply ego regulation. I had to lose my ego to get to this point...that was YEARS ago...once I got here, I could then reapply my ego because I already rebuilt from the ground up with an egoless foundation FIRST.
...it'll make a lot more sense if/when you finally get there. Just understand that there is a method to my madness...and trust in that.
-Other than skype sessions, as Sniper pointed out, I do not charge anything...yet I provide more value than any bullshit product you could possibly buy. I know that if I could get this point alone, then you guys can get to this point with a little bit of guidance. I do not spoon feed because it diminishes the 'A HA!' moment when you finally figure something out. Let's say you're playing a videogame and you get stuck...is it more gratifying to reach for the strat guide? Or is it much more satisfying to figure it out on your own? Just like in real life, being spoon fed as you hit walls gives short term satisfaction without any real appreciation.
-EVERYTHING I DO/SAY IS BY DESIGN
. If I say something that pisses you off, I MEANT TO. Why? Because I'm hoping that in that storm of pisstivity, you will have an 'A HA!' moment of self realization...it is in those moments where real progress can be made. So, instead of getting pissed off at me, focus more on why you are so upset over what I said. Often times I come across vague on purpose...it's my way of promoting independent thought.
-EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE
...no matter how far fetched it sounds. Members Sniper and Alchemist can attest for this personally...especially Sniper, who was quite obstinate during his 'transitional period'.
-If I've already discussed something at length, I'm not going to do it again. I do not care if you weren't currently a member when I did. That's what the search function is for...and myself and others are more than happy to post links to the pertinent information. 'Grinus won't expound on territory once traveled either. As stated, I do not get paid to be here in the forum...I have no income stream. My free time is just as precious to me as it is to you...please understand this. Clarification is one thing...rehash is another...know the difference.
I hope this clears up some common misconceptions and false truths around here. Let us continue the conversation and continue to be enlightened.
Edit by Sniper:
I wanted to write a post about this as well but The Kidd has already said everything well enough so no need...
I just wanted to add that Me & the other admins also don't have an income stream from this forum.
We are running the forum and looking after it- on our free time.
There aren't any links or ads here that point out to buy something. If and when we post about something good that we paid for - it's only a suggestion and we don't make any money from recommending it - The forum is not a part of any Affiliate programs...
So please understand that our free time is valuable to us, therefore: topics that were already discussed at length- we are not going to say the same things again (like a parrot).
We will give you the links, you read what was already written AND THEN: if you still have questions we will be more than happy to answer
EVERYTHING in life is conditional...EVERYTHING.
