Started with this Have you seen West Side Story and I went Ooh Tell me more knife fights homoerotic Police officers dancing I was waiting For some drama baby But the drama never came Turns out this was a gentleman with whom She had exchanged some looks at the Gin It didn’t go much further than that There wasn’t some big ending to the Story but in these looks that she had Exchanged with someone looks that she Said carried that sense of flirtation And attraction not just from her side But from his she had built an entire World she had asked the receptionist for His name because she didn’t want to ask Him or talk to him so she went to the Receptionist at the gym and said what’s That guy’s name and she ended up getting His full name and then using that name To go and find out all about who this Person was she even asked a friend of Hers who happened to grow up in the same Area as him if she knew him and that Friend happened to know him and then Gave her lots and lots of information About him so by the time she was Finished with all of this research she Actually knew quite a lot about this Guy’s life his family where he grew up The kind of person that he was by Somebody else’s account and I said well

So what is it you want she said well I Want to ask him out and I have this Whole plan so then she revealed her Whole master plan for how she was going To ask him out and I I’m gonna you know Time it so that he’s leaving his class At the same time that I’m going into Mine and when I catch him in that moment I’m going to talk to him about the Weekend and then based on that I’m gonna And she even had a plan for if he said No or if he said he had a girlfriend how To give herself a soft Landing where it Didn’t look like she was asking him out Romantically but just as friends the Amount of time and energy that she had Spent on this guy was astounding this is Albeit a story that will make some People go wow that’s a lot A very common story all of us to Differing degrees have our version of This we see someone we like and it might Be someone we see regularly and Therefore have time to consistently Build up a story around or someone we See once in a coffee shop and for that 10 minutes that we see them in the Coffee shop we’re thinking about them And the kind of person they are and what It might be like to talk to them and Where it could go and all of this Thought becomes incredibly unproductive Incredibly quickly because instead of Engaging and participating in real life

It has us all of a sudden engaging in an Idea of Life a future projection a hope A fantasy a dream of what it could be The interesting part was when she found Out information on this guy there wasn’t Just a dream element to it she also Heard things she didn’t like she heard Things that she thought might be cause For concern in the future and so now She’s also future projecting all of Those things again the whole time she’s Never actually been on a date with the Person it’s just thought on thought on Thought I respect the fact that we may In some cases want to do a little bit of Homework on someone from the point of View of Feeling comfortable about who they are They’re not in a relationship and that We like the kind of person they present Themselves as online to me that is akin To seeing a teaser trailer for a movie And going okay I’m in I want to see that Movie it’s a different thing when you See the teaser trailer you start to get Excited about the movie and then you go I’m now gonna do every bit of research Possible you know what Let’s take a look at the reviews Jane Have you seen this movie you start Exploring online all of the different Media about the movie they had an Off-screen romance he said what on Twitter I gotta find out more that

Is too much and the more we obsess the More we think about someone firstly the Further we deviate from reality and Secondly the more we build everything up So now we have more fear by the time we Speak to them because it’s already Become this epic drama in our mind with This perfect stranger in the gym we set Ourselves up for more heartbreak how is It that I could possibly get any form of Pain emotionally in any deep sense from Someone that I literally haven’t ever Been on a date with well it can feel Like heartbreak if you’ve had a Relationship with them in your mind and Number three you’re liable to waste an Incredible amount of time this is all Time and energy spent on somebody there Are mindsets in love that help people Find love quickly or much more quickly And there are mindsets that derail People constantly and make it hard for Them to ever find love one of the Mindsets that makes it hard for people To find love is when instead of going And finding out if someone is available Instead of going to find out if someone Might like them enough to go on a date Or it has enough chemistry or attraction With them to go on a date instead of Actually learning what they have with Someone they ruminate about that person They obsess over that person they stalk That person online they go down the

Rabbit hole of who they are and how good We could be together and how compatible Are we what kind of person are they they Go down that fantasy and all of that is Wasted time the productive mindset the Good mindset for finding love is to say I’m not going to waste my time Fantasizing about someone I’m gonna go Find out if I think they’re intriguing If I just exchanged a fun flirty look With someone uh in the coffee shop in The gym in the Bookshop at my a local Club whatever I’m gonna go over And say something it doesn’t have to be As Extreme as I’m going to go straight Over and ask them out but I’m going to Just get my feet wet right this is like Going in through the shallow end of the Pool I’m just gonna go and get my feet Wet I’m going to participate in a real Way in the exchange and see what it is It might be after months of of engaging In her mind in this way with the guy it Might be that she speaks to him and says Hey do you want to do something sometime And he says I have a girlfriend and you Realize oh my God months months of Thinking months of West Side Story Months of playing out this movie that Was that never even existed only to find Out he’s in a relationship or he’s not Interested or he’s leaving town next Week forever the people that get results The people that find love faster are the

People that actually go find out in real Life instead of asking questions in Their mind and that means being this Like stream of water that’s just flowing You can’t be stopped I’m just gonna go Find out if I hit a rock some one says No to me someone says oh I’m not Available someone says I I’m not really Interested then we just flow around that Rock and we keep going what we don’t do Is stop the stream altogether and just Sit there and go we’re just gonna chill Here for a few months and fantasize that Is a recipe for wasted time and your Heart can repair itself getting a no Getting a rejection getting your heart Broken the heart can repair people get Their heart back the thing they never Get back is their time that is the thing That you will never ever ever have Returned to you so all of that time Fantasizing is wasting the most precious Resource you will ever have and if you Want to find love faster you have to be Willing to discard the wrong people Quicker and that means going and finding Out in real life now that may be Disappointing to actually find out what You might have with someone to actually Find out where it could go or won’t go Can be very very disappointing the Person who is working with me and my Writing said to me Matthew you have to Remember any time you’re afraid to put

Words on the page anytime you have Writer’s block you have to remember that What this perfect book you have in your Mind is never going to be as perfect on The page you’re gonna write and it’s Gonna feel like a poor representation of What you had up here but the only way to Get it close to what you have up here is To work it to write and edit and go Through the painstaking process but at The end of it you actually have a book And that book is worth far more than any Idea you have in your head and this is What I want to boil it down to right now Because there are people in life Who would rather have a relationship With the fantasy than be a participant In real life and the reason that we are Reluctant to be a participant in real Life Is one because we’re afraid and Ironically the more we build something Up the more afraid we become it’s Actually we can be less afraid when we Don’t build it up when I just say oh There’s an attractive stranger I’ll say Something to them and just see what Happens they’re nothing to me right now They’re nobody to me I don’t know them I Haven’t thought about it very much That’s the best time to say hi before You’ve done the whole dance in your head That suddenly turns it into not I’m no Longer walking in through the shallow

End of the pole now I’ve gone straight To the deep end of the pull and I’ve Created this High Dive that I’ve got Jump off of to talk to this person and The more you build it up in your head The greater the collision with reality When you engage with it and it’s easier For me to wrap myself up in the blanket Of the dream in the blanket of the Fantasy and just enjoy that for a bit Longer before I go and douse those Flowers frames with a cold hard bucket Of reality and that’s the thing right When I thought about this woman’s story I thought She had a moment where she could have Gone to talk to him but instead she Chose to talk to the receptionist and Find out his name that is avoidance and Every time you dig a Little Deeper on Someone and you look them up online and You go down all of their pictures and Now all of their tagged pictures and you Find out more about them and so on Instead of engaging with that person It’s always just a nod in the direction Of avoidance of fantasy instead of Participating in real life because real Life is scarier real life might come With a no real life might come with a Disappointment So there’s that fear and I think that The the close cousin to that fear is Is a kind of disappointment in some way

With real life or a reluctance to engage With life on its terms a reluctant to be Present with life you know there’s There’s some similarity between it and The person who jumps out of every Relationship after six months because Every relationship never lives up to This romantic ideal they have in their Head it sort of becomes an insult to People who are married for decades and Whether the storms together and go Through difficult periods and come to Make peace with each other’s flaws and They get through the hard times and the Arguments but they come out stronger They come out these sort of War wounded Veterans who love each other so much and Have this badge of honor in their Marriage to show for it because they’ve Been through all of that they didn’t Bail and and there are people that just Always by all the moment it’s not Perfect because they’d rather live with The idea of this perfect relationship in Their head Then participate in life on its terms Sculpt a relationship the way that a Great book is sculpted by shitty Paragraphs and average writing that we Work on and we make better and better by Doing it there are no points in life for Winning in the fantasy world but if we Can be a com an active participant in Life if we can see someone and rather

Than live with the idea of what it could Be with that person we can go and get a Yes or a no and then proceed or move on Accordingly if we can do that Then life will be kind to us in bringing Us love faster But if we stall because we become Addicted to the fantasy then we are Liable to be condemned to that fantasy To become a prisoner to it for the rest Of our lives so here’s the Crux of this Video Stop guessing stop assuming stop Fantasizing stop future projecting and Give yourself a new motto go find out if You want to know if someone could be Someone in your life go find out if you Want to know if they’re attracted to you Go find out if you want to know whether You could have a date with them go find Out end the fantasy participate in real Life the results when you get them will Be real now this video is about the Mindsets that hurt us and the mindsets That help us this is about so much more When people come to me they come to me Usually about a person you know how what Do I do with this person but we are the Person that we take to every situation The person that you’re currently talking About may or may not be a feature of Your life in six months time but you Still will be and the mindsets that you Have will either help you achieve

Everything you want or they will Consistently sabotage you so this is About the operating system that we have In place and most of us go through our Whole lives without ever questioning our Operating system and upgrading it so That we can get better results in Life Or be happier I said to you earlier in This video the virtual Retreat is coming Up I said to you it was the final call Or this is me saying one last time if You haven’t already come and join us and Upgrade this operating system that is Shaping every experience you have of This life good or bad what could be more Important than investing in it is a link thank you For watching the video don’t forget to Like subscribe hit the notification Bell So that you get notified of the next one Leave me a comment and I’ll read them Today and I’ll see you next time thanks Everyone Okay

Trust – Difficult to Get and Keep

Often I hear clients state “I just don’t trust him (her)”. My response is “To do what?” 1.

Resolve or Regret

So many people have regrets. They feel sad, guilty or disappointed about the way things turned out and blame themselves for doing or not doing something that would have resulted in a different outcome. Their lives are tainted by thoughts of the past and “what if”.

Relationships: Why Do Some People Always Shame Others When They Open Up?

In order for someone to experience intimacy, it will be important for them to open up to others. However, this is not to say that they should simply open up to anyone, and this is because doing so would lead to problems.

Humans Are Naturally Selfish, Study Finds

It’s an undeniable fact that all humans have a selfish side whether they accept it or not. Psychological data obtained from previous researchers suggested that humans tend to be selfish because they like the attention. Altering the Prisoner’s Dilemma which is a classic matchup theory, selfish strategy, somehow, proved to be more productive.

What Can Happen When Someone Is No Longer Willing To Put Up With Other People’s Projections?

Although some people have the tendency to take responsibility for what takes place within them, there are others who don’t. Due to this, it can be normal for someone to believe that what is taking place externally has nothing to do with what is going on internally.

Diagnosed or Undiagnosed Personality Disorder Might Harm Your Relationship(S) – What Should You Do?

If, in spite of your many attempts to develop a good intimacy you fail time and again, it might be that you behave in your relationships in self-sabotaging ways (such as: having unstable moods; extreme reactions; often being too angry, making irrational decisions, etc.). When these happen, you might blame your partner for “making you” behave that way. However, if you exhibit the same behavioural, emotional and attitudinal patterns time and again, unwilling to see your part in sabotaging your relationship(s), it might mean, among other, that you might suffer from some (diagnosed or undiagnosed) personality disorder you don’t seem to be able to control, which causes you to behave in these self-sabotaging ways. Learning what it is that causes you to behave the way you do will enable you to take control and become able to (finally) develop a healthy and successful intimacy.

Choosing a Partner or Escaping Into the Relationship: The Difference Makes You Happy or Tormented

There are many who decline and deny – to themselves and to others – that they are with a partner and in a relationship which are not for them. However, even people who are unaware can not cheat themselves (and their partner) all the time; can not continually pretend that “all is right” in their relationship; can not repetitively come up with one thousand and one excuses to justify staying with a partner who is not for them and in a relationship that doesn’t bring them happiness. So why do they stay?

Has Humaneness Walked Out on Us?

A human is said to be humane if the human displays tenderness, compassion and sympathy for fellow humans. It is evident from the events and incidences around us that one can be human and not be humane. How and when did some humans stop being humane?

Everything in the Law Code Sums Up to Love

Death and destruction are on rampage, from town to town, city to city and from country to country. Switch on to any news channel, you are informed of one chaos or another; one tragedy or another. People gather face to face, on social media or phone calls discussing: “What is going on? Death is on the loose like never before”

Relationships: Is It A Form Of Indirect Revenge When Someone Always Criticises Others?

If someone was to think about what their friends are like, they may start to think about how supportive they are. These are then going to be the kind of people who are life-affirming, and it could then be said that that they have the right people in their life.
