Great talks with Phil

So, I called my good buddy Phil today and he started explaining to me what he does at his job at SunTrust. We have had this talk before and each time we talk about his profession our understanding of his profession and our general understanding of business grows. Throughout the talk I had an aha moment (like what Oprah talks about all the time).

 

Investment institutions can be taken out of the equation of business. Financial institutions play the middle man for getting money from people who have money to people who have ideas, potential goods, etc. Well, my idea is to take out the financial institutions and have the businesses or very wealthy people offer apprenticeship programs. In this model the person who has the great idea will be matched up with people who can help him grow his ideas and connect with people he can network with.

 

This model is clearly seen in the show sharktank. The entrepreneurs come on the show with the idea to work with the sharks and be able to use all of the resources that the sharks have. My model would work that way. Instead of a shark sitting in his home throwing money into these investment markets with high risks, the risk will be lowered because the entrepreneurs are getting resources to succeed, not just money.

 

Big ups to Phil for stimulating my brain. We discussed 100 more topics than this but this is what I decided to post. more posts from conversations with Phil in the future.

 

That’s all. I hope you enjoyed the post. Thank you for reading. God bless

Revelation Part 2

Posted by johnson.jonathan.m on August 16, 2012 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

The key to being able to communicate/change other beings is to 1) understand it’s give/want structure and 2) building a trust by doing things for it, suffering with it, etc. This situation can be seen by picturing a cup. This cup is the communication/ ability to change something cup. You can fill the cup up with blue rocks (meaning you understand that things give/want) and/or with orange rocks (meaning that you have built up trust with the person). Anytime the person understands the entity more or builds the trust more the cup gets filled up more. The higher the cup is filled up the greater the communication you can have with the entity and the greater you will be able to change that thing.

I need to explain what change another entity means. This means that the entity will trust you so it will more easily change by the things that you say or the things that you do. If you have very few rocks in the cup then it will be very hard for that person to listen and change to the words you say or to follow you.

My favorite person to show of how this works is Jesus. Jesus’s main power was being able to understand everything. He understood the give wants of every person on Earth, the flowers, the water, everything. People were moved because Jesus understood them. Water and plants and things moved not only because he understood them, but because they understood who he was. Water would allow him to walk on it. Plants would quiver if he commanded them to all because of the first principle.

This example of Jesus drives my want to understand the give/want structure of everything, but first I must start with myself. Like I stated in my revelation part 1, I completely believe that my mind and body are separate because they have different give/want structures. I want to continue to learn these structures so that my body and mind can work in balance.

This is Jon Jon signing out. Thanks for reading.

 

Revelation Part 1

Posted by johnson.jonathan.m on August 16, 2012 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

I had an astounding revelation a few weeks ago. The revelation goes like this: If something has a different give/want structure then it is a different entity/being/etc. than something else. I have a different give/want structure than the person that is reading this so I am a different entity than that person. I have a different give want structure than the raccoon that is in the dumpster at night. I am a different entity than the raccoon. The purpose of this revelation was the fact that my mind has a different give/want structure than my body. My mind and body are two different entities. This basic premise opens me up to a whole slew of understandings. Let me say that my mind wants me to work out and to get really big and strong. This is a give for my body. My body will become broken down from the workout. I reiterate: this is not a want for my body, but a give; it is a want for my mind. So, after I work out my body has given so I need to get my body things that it wants in order for my body to continue performing and giving to my mind. I can give my body rest so that it can rebuild. My body may also want some yummy snack or meal after I’m done working out. The key is to give the body something that it wants.

I believe this is the reason why people fail at getting used to working out. The person has never worked out a lot so when she does work out it is a huge give for her body. That person needs to understand that working out will be a huge give before she works out so that she can already know the things that she is going to give her body as a reward for working out. This is how you turn something from a give to a want. After successfully giving the body what it wants after working out, over time the body will get used to the workout and it will become less of a give for the body.

I feel like sickness is related to taking care of the body and giving it wants. If someone’s body is continuously working for 10 hours a day, that person is not giving the body food to perform correctly, and the person is not giving the body enough rest to recover, then why would the body want to fight off diseases for the person. The body is depressed. All of the body’s basic needs are not met. These are huge gives for the body. Give the body what it wants and it will perform very well for you. Eat when the body is hungry. Sleep when the body is sleepy, etc. Do these things and the body will perform for you.

I’ll finish with this short story. I take care of my body very well. Dana hardly sees me get sick and she hardly hears me sneeze, etc. While I was working at Kohl’s this summer, a couple of days I would miss breakfast in the morning (a huge, huge give for my body) and I would work a few hours before I got a break. I would get a couple of hours into work and I would sneeze. I never sneeze. This may seem very simple but it is like clockwork. When I don’t take care of my body, the first sign is I will sneeze because my body is not thinking about fighting off virus’s. It’s trying to get basic wants.

 

That’s it for part 1of this revelation. Thank you for reading as always.
