Today I would like to continue the topic of the last video. Last time we talked about how you create your reality with the power of your thoughts.
This is the big difference between successful people and unsuccessful people: successful people know that they can do it and therefore they are successful. Unsuccessful people „know“ that they cannot. And therefore it does not work.
What do you „know“ about yourself? How does this inner knowledge of yours create your reality?
- Step: Many people confuse interpretations, opinions, „hear-say“ and sensitivities with facts. This is the reason why most people never become successful. So learn to distinguish facts from subjective interpretations, opinions, „hear-sake“ and sensitivities. This is the first step to accurate thinking.
Actionstep: Distinguish the facts from the interpretations, opinions, „hear-say“ and sensitivities in your life. Write them down in your journal!
- Step: Learn to distinguish the important facts from the unimportant ones. Do you already know the 80/20 rule? Many people spend 80% of their time on unimportant things, which only produce 20% results. So they only have 20% of their time left for what really counts for them. This concerns especially people who are average and not very successful. Successful people concentrate on the 20% that bring them 80% of the results.
Action Step: write down: what are the really important things/activities in your life? What are the important facts in your life? Which 20% will bring you your 80% of results?
- Generalizations – induction and deduction – two different thought patterns.
Induction means: you throw a stone into the window, and the window shatters. Then you throw the stone back into the window and the window breaks again. You can repeat this as often as you like. The glass will keep breaking. Why? The stone is much more massive than the window, and glass is fragile by nature.
Deduction is a „derivation„. You now derive from the fact that if you throw a hard object into something fragile like glass, it shatters. Now you can think: ok, what else is there in hard objects? For example a football. If it is shot into the window at a decent speed, the window will break.
Action Step: Analyze, what are the generalizations, your inductions and what are the deductions you make in your thinking? Here are 6 different generalizations that are especially important to consider: 1. All & Nobody, 2. Always & Never, 3. Everything & Nothing.
Remember Thomas Edison and the light bulb: what is the „vacuum“ that is still missing in your life?
I look forward to your comments and questions, until next time,

Good questions are honoured with a video of their own, which gives the answer to the question. So feel free to ask a general question that is on your mind and after a while a video with the answer will appear on this blog!
