Going for a Breakthrough

Posted By: Randy GageOctober 21, 2018

So last post I told you that the reason many ultra-successful people reach a plateau, is because they’re afraid of the awesome strength of what they possess.  That sounded crazy to some of you.  But I see it happening again and again. 

Many people are actually fearful of what they know they would do, if they were to really kick it into overdrive and go for it.

Because of the negative mind viruses that many have become infected with, they may subconsciously sabotage themselves because they afraid of becoming too wealthy. I’ve seen people self-sabotage because they carry guilt about making more money than their parents.

Sometimes people throttle back simply because they know their life will get more complicated.  Because they realize that to manifest their greatness, they’re going to have to be a little breathless, running a little faster, just to keep up with themselves.  So they choose the crockpot, slow cooker life.

Don’t Be a Crockpot

Take a shot on a true breakthrough now and then.  Yes, stepping into your greatness is a little daunting, risky and challenging.  But it’s worth it.

Thoughts? Arguments? Confessions?

  1. Great post. It never stops Randy. I thought I was free of negative memes. When my first book was published a few weeks ago at first I was thrilled and excited, Then old doubts crept in and I became unsure that I wanted people reading my story. But I’ve worked through it and am back on track promoting my book and starting my next one. I’m putting my dip down to an unusual overdose of world news. Lesson learnt.❤️

  2. Randy, although I have asked this before but you did not respond - where is the line between taking a risk and throwing all caution to the wind? Please give us an example, or are they both the same? In other words, when does becoming discerning turning into inhibiting?

    1. Well let's explore how most people would think about this. Many would tell you that if they attempted a new business and it didn't work out, they would lose everything and their world would end. What's the reality? They might have to give up their country club membership, or drive a Honda instead of a Lexus, or make some other status changes that they believe will cause them to lose status with their neighbors or friends. What they might describe as losing everything would actually mean they may have to eat dirt for a time. In my life I've been willing to roll the dice and once ended up selling all my furniture and sleeping on the floor. When you're 20, that seems romantic. At 30, not so much.

      I think people have to be honest and realistic about what a setback would actually mean. Only then can they discern if the risk is worth it, If a loss means your car and house will be repossessed and you have four kids - that's a different story than the examples above. -RG

  3. The “negative mind viruses” are prevalent, as are the “ crockpot” people. I can see people convincing themselves for the other reasons you note, as well. I still can’t and never will be able to understand this thinking and resulting lack of actions - but do know these people exist.

    Back when I was a graduate student, I had a summer job at a Navy lab. One of the younger people in the office spent the entire summer rewriting his previous year’s yearly report - to make it read differently, because he had virtually nothing new to report ONE YEAR LATER. Then, early in my first job, there were several people not much older than I was at the time that spent many hours of company time reviewing their latest retirement financial projections that we all received - with retirement at least THIRTY YEARS IN THE FUTURE. Couldn’t then and still cannot understand why people such as those in these two examples could be seeing the status quo as a given ... I’m not there yet, NINE YEARS after accepting Emeritus status!!!

  4. I've got research to do, a paper to write and discussion board follow ups to write. I also need to look for work in alignment with management/global leadership. I have to make these my top priorities. So I might not post that much here while I am putting time into a job search.

    I needed to make a career change, it is best that I changed my major before making that career change.I also moved back north before I made a career change, It was the right move for me. Florida was not the place for me, although it may be for others, I did not lose. If someone else was a better choice, then it wasn't the best place for me. I did my Masters in Florida and I met people from around the world. After my Master's I planned to do my Doctorate and now I am doing that. I also realized I needed to move to do what was best for me. I will also remain single if that is what is best for me. I can also be happy for others in relationships. Being single may be the best for me now while it may be best for some to be in relationships. Being single isn't being a loser. For me, I think it is best for me to be a single winner first before I get into a relationship with another single winner. And I am ok if I stay a single winner too.

    If posting here is holding me back, then I will stay off here. It isn't worth harming your work, grades, finances, health, etc You would think I could add value to a prosperity blog. Although some people don't see me as valuable. I see myself as worthy and valuable. I know I am worthy.

    I had a vision last night of what I now think was the train crash in Taiwan. I think someone went to heaven and wanted to live. They cried. Enjoy your time on earth (in healthy ways) and change your beliefs so you want to live (and you want others to live). It is a living Spirit. I am alive

    I didn't buy a slow cooker. I am looking at an Instant Pot.

    My plan is to post on my sites and contribute on some other sites also. I just have to figure out where the best sites are for my message.

    Wishing you well,
    Bernice

    1. So I will stay off of here for me. For work, money, school and housing (etc) You have to eliminate things that are harming your grades etc.
      DM in Global Leadership.

      I still have to work while going to school and will need to do business online. I will find places that are in alignment with my degree and business.

  5. It is important to know that you are not your parents. While you don't have to follow them with the same career as a doctor, you don't have to follow them to stay in poverty. This is your life and no one do care about it as much as you. Things like religions and astrology suggest you to be fatalistic and accept the fact that everything is pre-planned (I wonder why you have a brain then). That means if you born in poverty, the reason is that you should stay in it and suffer it for life. This is ridiculous. The reason can be exactly to learn that poverty aren't contain too much value for you, therefore you should leave it as soon as possible.

    Other aspects of this is the "prosperity is for others" meme. You think God (fate) decided to give prosperity to the upper class, but you not one of them. This comes from the "born riches" like kings and queens and so on. They have a right do be rich but you don't, because if you do, than you born to be rich as well. But this is a lie. Riches people are the same as you. They don't have more rights for the money than you. Neither less.
