Have you ever had a complete melt-down, a real failure of your world-view, where the world has gone to hell and stayed there? Sad to tell you: it's your own damned fault.
What makes it worse is to find out that everything you ever needed to succeed is already programmed into you – and has been since you were born.
Then how did you get into that mess?
By believing what people told you as you were raised, and in every school you went to, all your on-the-job-training, all the books you ever read, every movie you ever saw, or song you ever heard. All those lessons and examples just helped you believe in something other than your own natural ability to succeed.
And so, if you were raised in a “disadvantaged” neighborhood, you weren't responsible for your own failures. However, this has only really been taught since just after World War II. Before that, there were many schools of thought which held that the individual created their own world and made their success in it, or didn't.
W. Clement Stone believed in the Horatio Alger stories he read as a child and turned $100 into $35,000,000.
George Washington Carver was born a slave and became one of the most respected and influential scientists of all time, even before the Civil Rights movement.
Almost all of the U.S. Presidents were born into poor or decidedly middle-class backgrounds.
Most of the Forbes list of Richest People came from a poor or middle-class upbringing and either didn't finish college or never went.
Some of our oldest traditions, such as the Tibetan Book of the Dead, say that as children we have complete access to all the world's knowledge – right up to the point we learn to talk. Yet other traditions say that everyone of us can still tap into unlimited knowledge, any time we want or need it.
Unfortunately, this isn't what modern Science says. And it isn't what any current government or their Academia wants you to believe.
The truth is wilder than our broadcast media admits, although our popular self-help and business books have published it every decade since books first came off a printing press (actually, even when they were still being hand-copied.)
That truth can be found in one of the oldest phrases, which has been repeated over and over in various ways through all our literature, philosophic, and religious works:
We Become What We Think About.
What you think and how you think is up to you. How you think consistently, the mental habits you've developed, are those you chose for yourself.
Those ideas you started relying on made you feel sexy, made you feel powerful, helped you think that others were looking up to you, and generally explained how the world worked. They gave you some prediction about things.
Then one day, your prediction failed you. What you used to think was the way the world worked, wasn't.
Yes, this happens several times to everyone. For a lot of people, this is also known as “mid-life crisis.” But it can also happen in colleges with high-stress situations. The military sees people “hit the wall” in their boot camps weekly. Watch any popular movie and you'll see this happen to just about every single character. (Actually, we think it's a bad movie if that doesn't happen...)
We make our own movie called Life. We create our “real life” situations that we have to solve on our own. We each are the main hero or heroine, the director, and the producer. We stage each scene and sequence, we craft the dialog, we light the set, we pick the wardrobe, we provide the props, we edit out the bloopers. And our movie is a tragedy or comedy wholly dependent on the situations we find ourselves in. Life is a one-take continuing melodrama where there are no “do-overs.”
Or so we think.
Is life really that serious?
Not if you know how it works, what the principles are behind the scenes, and how we each came to believe the specific world-view that we do. That we did. That we will tomorrow unless we decide to change it.
The movie each of us lives depends on the world view and mindset that we develop and stack as we live that movie. How we think creates that movie, determines if its a tragedy or comedy.
Perhaps the times where we are at our highest risk of having a tragic mental crash is in our current days when we are most removed from the natural world and have come to depend on all the concrete and steel environments where we live our lives.
These artificial worlds might protect us from the elements as long as we follow the rules they require. But they do not protect us if we build a world view which is fragile because it was built of straw instead of brick.
I've spent a few decades involved in the work of fixing people and thought I had it figured out, until my own world-view crashed. Then I spent another decade sorting out how that could have been possible at all.
This guide you are reading has a lot of my story, but it has more to the story of how the mental world we create really works.
It's been written for you to help you either recover from a recent crash, for help you make your belief-system more impervious to any future ones.
The third option is to help you embrace the crashes when they occur. That last one is for entrepreneurs, who take risks most of us wouldn't (but perhaps all of us should.)
You could say that crashes occur due to “brittle” world views. The belief-systems which are more resilient can withstand far more than we would ever ask of them.
If you want one of those resilient belief-systems, you're going to have to work out how to strip down and rebuild and tune your own mental engine while you are using it to drive to work every day and taking the kids to their sports events or visiting their relatives on the weekend. You can't just get away with putting it in the shop and driving a loaner.
You also meanwhile have to be prepared for environmental “crashes” and “adjustments.”
