Meeting Your True Self Aug 1-7, 2021 Retreat
When Jim Carrey was a ‘ starving actor’ one night in 1990 while looking down on Los Angeles and dreaming of his future, Carrey wrote himself a check for 10 million dollars and put in the notation line "for acting services rendered".
He dated the check for Thanksgiving 1995 and he stuck it in his wallet. He gave himself 5 years. And just before Thanksgiving 1995, he got paid $10,000,000 for the movie ‘ Dumb and Dumber’.
What Dreams are you wanting to come true? And are your core beliefs REALLY congruent with allowing this to manifest?
In Benjamin Harding’s book ‘ Willpower Doesn’t Work’, he makes an excellent case for the influential power of your environment. He takes it down to the genetic level quoting the preeminent cellular biologist and leader of the new science ‘epigenetics’ Bruce Lipton, “the signals from your environment are responsible for your genetic makeup far more than the DNA you were born with”.
If we do not create and control our environment, our environment creates and controls us. This includes the people around you. The expectations of those around you establish your own personal rules and expectations. Psychologists call this the Pygmalion effect.
So instead of trying to prequalify to be someone, create the environment that will qualify You to become that person now.
I have been aware of the power of the environment both external and internal for decades. And that is one reason we pick such a spectacular ‘environment’ to hold our ‘Healing Retreat, 'Meeting Your True Self’.
We have created an environment that extrapolates the best out of you AND simultaneously allows you to fully recover, rest, and re-connect. First, we have chosen an environment based in NATURE. Crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Ocean. The magical healing power of the Ocean. The soothing breeze over your body. No man-made sounds.
We’ll start your reconnection with your ‘inner nature’ by having you take a technology fast. No cell phone, no computers-NADA. The purpose of the 'technology fast' is to reconnect with yourself and your loved ones. You are immediately cut off from the stress and hustle of everyday life. There are no noisy telephones or SMS messages, no inboxes full of mail, no electrical bills, or other trivialities of everyday life taking up time and energy. If you never give yourself a break from technology it will wear you down mentally, physically, and spiritually. Although it may not feel like it, technology stresses your nervous system. If you want to be mentally and physically healthy you need to give yourself brakes- you need to reset and rest.
You’ll unplug from the 24/7 availability that modern society demands of you. When you allow yourself to be ‘unavailable’- physically, mentally, and emotionally you live a far more present life. You experience a deep satisfaction actually being present with your love ones. You’ll be more attentive to their needs. You'll be more mindful and engaged. You'll be a better person in your relationships. Others will feel your love and affection more fully, since you’ll be giving them your exclusive attention. Something they might not have experienced in a long time, if ever.
So, “ wherever you are, make sure you're there”.
Oliver Wendell Homes said “a mind that is stretch by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions”.
Abraham Maslow describe PEAK experiences as, "rare, exciting, oceanic, deeply moving, exhilarating, elevating experiences that generate an advanced form of perceiving reality, and are even mystic and magical in their effect upon the experimenter".
Because of our vetting process we will only allow 20 highly qualified people on this retreat.
As Dan Sullivan says ‘surround yourself with people who reminds you more of your future than your past’. Rest assure this group will
So let’s look at where you’re headed?
You’ve heard the analogy that a commercial flight is off course most of the time enroute to its destination. But by ‘checking in’ it keeps course correcting to arrive at its destination.
So let me ask you a few questions:
How are you piloting your life?
What feedback are you receiving to correct your course?
How often do you check your guidance system?
Do you even have a guidance system?
Where is your destination?
When are you going to get there?
Are you currently off course?
How long have you been off course?
How would you know if you were on the right course?
How can you minimize the turbulence and other conditions distracting your path?
We’ll help you get clear on these AND implement new high level strategies too.
“ Escalation of Commitment” a term used in psychology and economics- Basically stated, putting yourself in situations knowing that a high investment will produce enormous inner commitment. And this is exactly what the highest achievers in the world do. They aren’t dreamers, they are DOERS. Because they have skin in the game.
One of the best ways to experience an ‘ Escalation of Commitment’ is to hire a mentor who is brilliant at what you want to do.
If you don't pay for something, you rarely pay attention.
Most people want stuff that's free.
But if you haven't invested your money, resources, or time, it’s incredibly difficult to invest yourself.
How much do you invest in yourself?
How much of yourself have you invested?
How committed are you to yourself?
If you aren't investing in yourself, then you don't have any skin in the game of your own life.
If you aren't invested in your business, you probably won't do high-quality work.
If you're not invested in your relationships, you’re probably more focused on what you can get than what you can give
Remember every choice involves opportunity cost - because everything of true value comes with sacrifice
Are you in? Or are you taking yourself out?
