What if success wasn’t just about picking good bets, making good decisions, and working hard?
This is the traditional narrative and I’ve come to believe it’s missing an integral part of the equation.
Doggedly trying to control reality to get what you want can lead us to what today’s guest calls “counterfeit success.” Everything on the outside may look great, but within our inner space and our personal lives it’s a different story.
As a coach, he began to notice a distinct divergence where some of his clients toiled away following the traditional narrative only to get mediocre results, while others seemed to experience wild success with flow and ease.
What eventually became clear was that the relationship with success and these people was less about how smart and well-reasoned they were, and more about whether they engaged life from a place of deep alignment.
It was as if there was an algorithm behind reality that responded favorably when someone was in alignment and adversely when someone was out of alignment.
This dynamic is displayed beautifully in the alignment continuum below that Mark created.
With this insight, Mark’s perspective on the linear nature of reality started to expand to a reality that was more responsive and dynamic in nature.
Helping people to see this expanded view of cause and effect became part of his work in order to help more people work with this subtle force that has been operating behind the scenes the whole time.
Interesting ideas in this conversation include:
How to understand whether you are in alignment
Why many of us resist being in alignment
Steps to recognize the responsive reality
How the definition of success evolves as we evolve
Creating predictable magic
Mark is someone that I’ve been on the journey with for awhile. Sometimes its eerie the extent to which our experiences and revelations overlap. I feel a deep connection to him and it brings me great joy to share this conversation and worldview.
We both genuinely feel like this recognition of a deeper layer of reality one of those life “secrets” that we hope more people discover.
Enjoy this conversation!
