UCWG 099: Unceasing Self-Discovery Part 56 – To Gladly Suffer Fools

A vitally overlooked ability of the exceptional class who intentionally pursue excellence in being is to segregate the presentation of their totality by audience and context. The majority of the human occupants of the world are both unwilling and unable to perceive the important parts of your character. To try to force them to is social and practical suicide.

UCWG 098: Unceasing Self-Discovery Part 55 – Lost Causes and Moving On

The ability to recognize the changing nature of bonds is essential to their healthy function. This is especially true when circumstances evolve such that what was once a beneficial opportunity no longer serves its original purpose.

UCWG 096: The Only Resolution that Matters this New Year’s Day

The only thing that matters as you prepare to celebrate a turning about of the world is to resolve the need to make resolutions and correct the imbalance between who you perceive yourself to be and who you would like to be.

UCWG 095: Unceasing Self-Discovery Part 53 – Those Who Teach You

No one can show you everything. Just because someone has achieved a certain level of success, it does not imply they are capable of showing you how they got there. Many mentors are addicted to their role as teacher. They enjoy the power dynamic. They may feel threatened when a subordinate begins to overtake them. When this happens, they will develop unconscious resentment for you. Such a person can only ever teach you specific things. They cannot form a stable bond.

Advice is just a starting place. Consensus just gives you context for what others believe. It is not the end, but a direction to move in and examine on your own.
