Hey JB:

For the Level III homework last week, you mentioned about starting a list of our trusted advisors. Could you go into more detail of the criteria we should be basing our list on and in what areas of our life we should be considering when it comes to having a trusted advisor? Since you mentioned it would be on the assessment for Level III, I think it would be beneficial for us to know what we should be looking for.

I’d thought I’d ask it here because it would be beneficial for all of us, even for those in Levels I and II, to know understand the trusted advisor concept a bit better.

Thanks for everything you are doing to make this group epic.

Cheers,

Bruiser

Hi JB!
I am interested in hearing more about your metaphysics PHD and what that entailed to study?
What did the study cover and how long did it take you to acquire and was it done in a classroom or online?
I`m very interested in metaphysics and would like to know more about options to study this.
Thanks so much
Virginia

Hi JB
Couldn’t get SpeakPipe to work on mobile today, so I’ll leave the question and suggestion here.
The suggestion is can you please say the lesson number at the beginning of each ACIM lesson? Just like you did today for Lesson 36. At least that way it makes it so much easier for anyone following along to know what the lesson is for the day off they are just jumping in or if they are catching up.

Which leads to my question.
With regard to ACIM, it feels like every lesson is a progression. That makes me feel like if I miss a day I should go back to it, but then if it’s multiple days, then it can become difficult to internalize (and practice) each lesson in a day. Any tips on how to catch up if you miss a day or a few?
And what about folks just joining MC or who are finally interested in jumping in to ACIM?
It could be quite intimidating to jump in on Day 36. Should they instead start at day 1 even though they’ll be out of sync (rather not say “behind” which is subjective) with the daily lesson on the Coach Cast?
Thanks JB. ACIM is really stretching and illuminating for me.

How would you or how do others describe a human utopia? If you could skip ahead 100, 200, 300 years, and so on, into the future what would you want to see happening in human society on our way towards utopia?

JB – Can you please talk more about the S6. Specifically, to-dos that come up in daily life that take time away from completing my S6 daily tasks. These are things that I cannot outsource and need to be addressed in a short amount of time. If I am not careful, I can spend an entire day putting out fires. Perhaps there is a better way that I can manage them? I hate to put these into my S6 Journal, but that is how I am currently capturing them. Any suggestions on capturing and managing these types of to-dos would be greatly appreciated.

JB – Thank you taking my Ask JB question last week. During the coachcast, you had several questions about, my fires and my organization so let me try to provide more information.
I am a manufacturer’s representative for several electromechanical component manufactures. My customers tend to be high-tech medical devise manufactures, and robotic companies with a few military applications sprinkled in. We are a small firm, so I wear many hats.
I break my sacred six into two piles, work, and personal. Most of the personal S6 tasks are done while on the homefront. I believe that as an entrepreneur you are either working on your business or working in your business. Working in your business keeps things going but working on your business is what leads to true growth. Currently, my work S6 is focused on growing the business. Most of my fires are working β€œIn” the business issues. They can be anything from, an engineer needing help on a new design, chasing down late orders, making sure that orders get confirmed or expedited, to even troubleshooting why a design is not working. It is these fires that I have been capturing in my journal for follow up. It is also these fires that can keep me from working on my daily S6 tasks.
Please let me know what other information you need in helping me to keep the fires to a minimum. I am sure that other folks have these same issues. (And yes, I set my day in the morning after listening to MC and walking the dog. – Long before the work day starts.)

Is being competitive bad? Competition in nature seems natural but humans don’t always seem to fit into nature.
If I am the winner and someone else is the loser, has my win harmed the other person? This relates to the limiting belief that “if someone gives me their money then I am harming them”. But if I provide them value equal to the money then I should feel no shame. But in direct competition, does my win provide them with something of value or is it pure harm?
From my male perspective, it seems the more competitive, the better, and it seems for females the opposite is true. Is this simply a social construct or is their value in being competitive versus non-competitive?

Hello JB, I am so happy to have passed the S6 Assessment and achieved Level III. Even without the “promotion”, I’m glad to finally have deep thoughts on my values, missions and goals. Level III was the right incentive. But how does it continue? When is the Level III FB Group coming? Will there be a separate L-III What’sApp Groupe? When does who put the triads together? Best regards Olaf

If we have the ability to manifest things in our lives and God is infinite in space and dimensions (including time), then is it conceivable to say that we as human beings can set intentions of manifestation that would lie outside the realm of “reality” and literally “Think Big”, even as big as the universe or bigger? Also, is manifestation proportional to the depth at which we have connected with God or can anyone, regardless of their connection to God, ask and receive things of infinite size, in infinite time or dimensions, or outside what we consider reality? As an example, can I manifest a complete connection with God at any time whether it be past, present or future?

Hi Jb!
Thanks again for your morning inspiration!
My question is how does one stay positive and focused when working full time whilst setting up a business?
I`m about to move interstate to pursue a new business but I will need to take on full time work whilst setting this up and my job is not related to my business, so I will be working on the business after hours.
Do you have any tips for ensuring your business is your priority whilst working for others and how do you stay on top of things whilst also finding time for yourself and your friends and family?
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
Virginia

My question is about the retreats. Could you post a rough start time & end time for your retreats? E.G. Start Feb 21 at 8am, End Feb 24 at 2pm. That would greatly help those of us who are flying in to get started looking at flights to Boca Ration, FL.

Hey JB,

Loving the M&M course!

Got a question about HRV. I’ve noticed that on the infrequent mornings when my readings are abnormally high (parasympathetic) or abnormally to mildly low (sympathetic) the day becomes unbearable. Today, as I write this question, my parasympathetic reading was abnormally high, in the red. All day I was stricken with the worst anxiety attacks ever. I had a total of eight. This was not a fun day.

I’m wondering if these anxiety attacks came about as a result of seeing the readings in the red (or yellow). Whether this is the case or not, what suggestions do you have to for me, or us as a group of listeners, so that we don’t get emotionally attached to the daily HRV readings?

Best,
Eric Sazer

JB I listen to your daily podcasts and they are great.
I’ve heard you talk about priorities and how to find the time to pursue a change of career, doing something you love, exercise, etc. and the need to take action. It’s all great advice and I am taking action, But I don’t feel I’m making much progress.
I want to change career but I can’t seem to identify what I want to do instead of my current job and what my purpose is. I feel like I am going round and round in circles Any ideas on how get some real focus?
Thanks JB

PS. would love to know how many of your followers are in the UK – be great to link up!

I have been listening to Morning coach for about 8 months. I remember when JB was allowing open enrollment and according to my records I had signed up but you have no records of my enrollment, so I hope I can get an answer to my question about HRVB.
I am very interested in this, and would like to find out what hard ware I will need to purchase to begin monitoring my HRV. I continue to listen to Morning Coach on a daily basis, but I am not willing to invest a lot of money at this time in becoming a member. I hope you will answer my question even if I am not a paying member.
Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Hi JB. I have posted this on your FB feed as well (sorry, only realised this is the place to ask questions!)

I absolutely love Morning Coach and JB. Such honestly, openness, realism, and fantastic support.

I feel totally overwhelmed in all parts of my life ..work, home, etc. And I know it is having a negative impact on my life and how I feel.

My question is ..how do I work out what I need to tackle/prioritise first to shift myself out of this feeling so I can take action?

Thanks JB, and love to the MC community!

Good Morning! My name is Pearla Phillips, I’ve been listening to your pod case…THANK YOU so much for all you Share. I’ve been on the waiting list for a while and heard this morning you’d be opening up for those people on the waiting list to join. I want to join, I need M&M! I didn’t see that I could join the community as of yet. Are you only taking a few from the waiting list according to who’s been waiting longest? How will I know when I can join?

Hi JB,
I would Iike to ask about focus and careers. I am a mother of two children (6 and 2) and there are two new career paths that I would love to follow. One would be as a reiki therapist helping people on their healing journey, and the other is to start designing and making clothes, and develop a fashion business. Is it better to pick one and focus on it, or have one main daily career and build the other one up on the side? It would be hard for me to let either one go as both leave me peaceful and fulfilled. Thank you so much for everything! Harriet

Good morning JB!
I had a question about your brainwashing story this morning – I’ve heard it before from you and I never really understood how this was brainwashing since they actually just told him the truth, the guys that told him “we are just like you and there’s poverty etc” are the ones that are on the right side so to me he was brainwashed to go into the war in the first place. The military is a huge brainwashing machine so I’m surprised that the story is about the side that actually got him to see the truth about how he was brainwashed in the first place. Just wondered cuz the story never made sense to me this way. Thanks πŸ˜ƒ

Hey JB,

I realized this means this question will be on the podcast 😬 and you I’d rather you don’t answer this question on the podcast since I know where you were coming from with this and it might be misunderstood, but an interesting question I had asked on the FB page a while ago that I would like your take on is this:
I’ve stayed away from the negative media as much as possible and staying as positive as possible. But if we as privileged individuals don’t stand up and get involved, help the voiceless – then isn’t our silence saying a lot as well?

In the end, we don’t wanna get caught up in separation and division by getting into FB arguments and posting negative things that are happening, but is staying silent about issues then making us look like we are complacent? Like I can afford to stay silent since I am not directly involved?
Thank you for your input! You rock!!!

Hey JB

IΒ΄ve got some good friends that IΒ΄ve been trying to help or guide so that they can have a better life. Basically telling them and showing them what IΒ΄ve learned from Morning Coach. Meaning, being mindful, eating right, exercise correctly, have some goals and purpose in life etc.
I have even let them listen to you and tried to convince them to try out MC. But they really donΒ΄t listen. Some of them try a bit but they really do not listen or even consider going for it. So they keep on living their “zombie life” were they just go as theyΒ΄re told, not thinking about anything.

That frustrates me because I love my friends and I only want the best for them !

So my question is … are there any other methods I can use to guide them to a better life ?
Or am I wasting my time and energy so I should just stop and let them go ?

Much of love

Thank you so much for the great answer. You really nailed it.

It’s now been 2-3 weeks since your answer and I’ve applied it to my life and to be honest …. it’s working for me.
Not that I’m getting them on the good side but I’m feeling less frustrated and stressed around them.

Thank you so much

Hi JB!
I know you have given strategies for a morning routine but my problem is my active mind before I even get out of bed!
As soon as I wake up its as though I remember who I am and where I`m at and I start this cycle of negative thinking that sets me off on the wrong foot for the day.
Do you have any tips for changing this pattern?
Cheers

Hi JB! So grateful for this “ask JB” opportunity! 2 questions. As you may know, I’m a writer, teacher, and creativity coach. I have an 8-module self-paced online program called Writing from the Top of Your Head, that combines writing prompts to help people connect with the flow state and get out of their thinking mind, with strategies from creativity coaching that help with obstacles like perfectionism, procrastination, self-doubt etc. The online course is the crystallization of my in-person course, which has taken me a few years to develop – in collaboration with many amazing students. I created this online course so I could serve more people, and I know it changes lives and gives artists real tools to live by. My question for you is how can I best get my program out into the world? It has been easier to attract students when I’ve done launches of my part live part online course. (Which I’m not doing at the moment.) But since this course is ongoing – I’m not doing a traditional launch. My email list is only 350, and I know I need to build it. I have been doing webinars and fb ads and funnels and freebies to grow my list, and I’m reaching out to guest podcast. I have a website and a weekly newsletter too. You talk about being patient and staying positive and I am doing my best, though it has been hard to keep my spirits up even though this is my thing – I can’t imagine doing anything else! You also speak about choosing an avenue and not spreading oneself thin in terms of promotion – so I’m trying to really hone this down. I’m thinking about blogging (no, I don’t have one!) or creating youtube vids or ….too many options! Do you have any take on the best way to promote an evergreen online course? I’m also thinking of doing a monthly paid 90-minute creativity coaching group. I know you’ve held groups like this and I’m wondering if you have pointers – in a group like this do you coach one person at a time and for how long? How does it work with a group so that everyone feels heard? Sorry this is so long, but I know you’re asking and it doesn’t hurt to ask, right? πŸ™‚ Thanks for being so available, and for keeping my spirits up every day with this mission in my life.
