Tim, I just don't get you. I think you may have said that about Glenn Osborn and his Weird NLP tricks.
I get you are an analytical, or a green, or a Taurus or stubborn or bullheaded or whatever....
Personalities, be they 4 of Richard Dennis' chart, 12 astrological signs or 16 of psychological jargon...
I get personalities.
I don't get you Tim. And that's ok, just like you not getting Glenn.
But, I'd think at some point, maybe you'd quit doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
People are NOT logical. PERIOD. End of story.
Having worked in a state mental facility for a couple of years, and seeing people do the same things over and over, because they have an illness which makes them, or creates the thougths...to do that...
I'm always puzzled by people like you, who by your own admissiong, keep gumming things up because you can't make people think like you.
I just don't get it.
You are smart, probably too smart in some ways, but...when does the
TRY A DIFFERENT WAY kick in?
No one is getting any younger, why delay or wait one day more to make an adjustment and take some action...and solve the problem in the direction of your goal...
but having a goal of
keeping on doing what you are doing and expecting different results...
well, it's just insane. Isn't it?
As for your thinking, biggest excuse of all time...
that's just the way I am.
It is a nice excuse to fall back on...I suggest you get some professional help and try to get rid of the blocks, which are deeply subconcious, which keep you on the insano train doing the same thing and expecting different results.
Maybe buy one of those Glenn Osborn courses and really get into it??
Good luck TW, I think you're going to need a lot of it.

So, in other words, I must take the initiative to persuade people who need persuading. But I ALSO must "persuade" those who are ALREADY persuaded?!?! Huh?!?!
Makes no sense!
That's like -- I need a gallon of milk, and then I sit there wondering why the store isn't CALLING ME to take my order -- and I'm not gonna buy milk until they do CALL ME -- even though I know darn well where the store is, and I'm the one who wants the milk!!!
