Controlled By What Feeds Me.

“Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self-interest.” – Napoleon Bonaparte.

Tony Robbins, will rather call it Fear and Pleasure. It was from him I learned this principle, as I read his books, "Awaken the Giant Within" and "Unleash the Power Within," decades ago. The second was rather more technical, and more difficult for my young mind to digest. Tony sold me on the key, instinctive,  motivations for every one of us - fear and pleasure, or self-interest, as Napoleon would rather have it.

What's your take on it? Do you agree with Tony and Napoleon? Or, you think other factors come into play? Why do you do what you do? Why is it important to know? It is important to know, as Tony spells out in his second book because you can direct it. You can use it to your advantage, rather than allowing it to use you. That was the whole essence of Tony's second book, which I can now better decipher, from my knowledge of metaphysics.

The average person, deceptively thinks him or herself to be rational. Really? Unknown to such they are being controlled, teleguided. They are only simply using their rationale to justify their action. That way they have an appearance of control. Appearance is all that is to it. Mere smoke. The substance is the programming and conditioning running their life, irrespective of their awareness of it. 

Carl Gustav Jung puts it this way, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” What a lot of us call fate today ain't fate. They are predictable outcomes. You have gotten the result of the things feeding something on the inside of you, be it via the instrument of fear, or self-interest. 

In an unconscious, or should I better say the subconscious state, we are all mercilessly selfish. Our subconsciousness only works for our own interests. And, will only produce a result which is in conformance and congruency to what it is used to, its programming and conditioning, irrespective of every other thing.

Are you aware of the conditioning and programming your life is running on? Do you think it is worth knowing? Do you like the results your life is producing? If yes, then do more of it. If not, You need to change some things in your programming and conditioning. You need to be aware of the wrong beliefs and values that might be doing you in. Then, you need to replace them with a new empowering story, conditioning, programming, belief, and value system.

You can. You will. You must.
