We all know we shouldnâ€™t judge others, but we probably do judge by appearance first.
But we donâ€™t know the whole story. Thatâ€™s obvious. So any judgment we make has no basis.
Moneyâ€™s a big judging factor as well.
People tend to judge somebody who is rich as greedy or somebody who isnâ€™t as lazy.
Thereâ€™s just too much we donâ€™t know and assume so any judgment we make is flawed.
But what most of us donâ€™t realize is that we judge a hell of a lot throughout the day.
So much that itâ€™s automatic.
And the sad thing about that is:
Thatâ€™s the main reason thatâ€™s holding us back from what we want in life.
Our judging mind is KEEPING us LOCKED in the life you are currently in, the one you want to make better.
Hereâ€™s how it happens.
You encounter an opportunity to do something different.
You judge it negatively.
You donâ€™t do it.
Life goes on the same as before. Nothing changes because you didnâ€™t change anything.
We assume we know what will happen if we do something even though we never try it to really see what itâ€™s like.
Hereâ€™s the classic example.
Youâ€™re not satisfied with your life, you want to improve it, you read a few books, and in one of them, thereâ€™s a paragraph that suggests a unique exercise.
As soon as you wake up in the morning, you move a pile of stones from one side of your room to the other.
Youâ€™re supposed to do that everyday for a year, the reason being to develop discipline.
Automatically your judging mind kicks in:
â€śOh thatâ€™s stupid, whatâ€™s the point, I might get hurt lifting those rocks, what a waste of time, what a stupid exercise, I got better ways to develop discipline, etc.â€ť
Yeah, but how do you know if you never tried it?
Could it not work for you?
But it COULD work for you as well.
If youâ€™re disciplined in doing such a mindless task that bears no direct benefits to what you want, how much more disciplined will you be on a task that DOES give you direct benefits you do want?
One person, who doesnâ€™t judge, may very well take it upon themselves to do this exercise and their life will never be the same again afterwards. It will be so much better because that one simple exercise helped them cultivate the discipline they needed.
Another will just judge that exercise negatively and wonâ€™t do it.
This kind of scenario plays out MILLIONS of times throughout your life without you even knowing it.
We donâ€™t catch ourselves in the act.
The judging is on autopilot.
â€śOh that diet is stupid, this workout is dumb, that advice is pointless, they donâ€™t know what theyâ€™re talking about, how does that help, it doesnâ€™t even work in real life, that doesnâ€™t make senseâ€ť, etc.
Again, you donâ€™t know.
It might work, it might not.
Hereâ€™s a classic example with regard to this site.
Somebody might not want to sign up for the newsletter.
â€śOh I donâ€™t want to get an email Monday â€“ Friday. Itâ€™ll clog up my inbox. It wonâ€™t do any good. I donâ€™t have time to read it.â€ť
Iâ€™ve even got that excuse before.
â€śI donâ€™t have time to read itâ€ť â€“ even though itâ€™s only a few sentences long.
Hereâ€™s the thing.
You read the testimonials from the newsletter and you see what a dramatic impact that newsletter has had on tens of thousands of people around the world.
Their lives are never the same again.
Theyâ€™ve seen and EXPERIENCED the power of UNIQUE POSITIVE CONSISTENCY.
You donâ€™t really get that in this world. The default is negative. But with the M.I.T.â€™s, you get that positive consistency thatâ€™s crucial like air and water to your goals.
Moreover, you miss out on links to previous articles in the archives and brand new ones – articles that might help you with a situation youâ€™re in right now as well as the eCourse.
You miss all that thanks to the judging mind.
The same thing goes with the books and the subscriptions on this site. A person might think that â€śoh Brianâ€™s just trying to make a buck, I donâ€™t want to be bothered with that, I donâ€™t want to be sold thingsâ€ť, etc.
Look at the testimonials of the books. People have discovered that itâ€™s the final number of the combination theyâ€™ve been trying to unlock for YEARS, some even DECADES.
And yet for those who still havenâ€™t read the books, their judging mind is preventing them from finally unlocking it all.
Judging is such a closed action.
It suffocates opportunity.
It kills serendipity.
It negates any chance for change in your life.
Be curious and open.
Watch your judging mind.
Tell it that if you havenâ€™t experienced it, itâ€™s in no real position to make an opinion.
Youâ€™ll find that the less you judge, obviously the more you do and the more you do, the less you judge as you realize time and time again, that your judging mind is wrong simply because it has no data of experience to back up itsâ€™ claims.
In doing so, youâ€™ll begin to experience and understand things in your life that you never wouldâ€™ve had with your judging mind in charge and your life will never EVER be the same again.
Itâ€™s as if youâ€™re looking at the world with CLEAN LENSES, instead of all that dust and dirt and gook that clouded it.
Remember, if youâ€™ve always done what youâ€™ve always done, youâ€™ll always get what youâ€™ve always got.
Thanks to your judging mind.
Take action in spite of it.
And youâ€™ll truly realize thatâ€™s whatâ€™s been holding you back all this time and from then on, youâ€™ll NEVER look back.
