I often receive questions like the one below:
“Are you the most magnetic man on earth?”
In case you’re wondering: not at all.
There’s plenty of people with a stronger magnetism. In fact, many students developed a stronger magnetism and have many more magnetic accomplishments than me.
And I feel really happy with that!
I follow the same approach my teacher Fabricio did.
He never wanted to be considered a guru, or even an example to follow. He wanted to teach magnetism but not have someone follow his footsteps or put him on a pedestal in any way.
So whenever someone started to have “guru” admiration towards him, he would do or say something to purposefully break that.
He wouldn’t accept that someone would consider him a guru where everything he did was perfect and without fault.
We are all human, me, Fabricio and all of our past teachers; and becoming an example to follow is a burden neither of us wanted. He wanted to maintain his day to day life, with all its faults and imperfections without trying to live the “role model life”.
Back then, in the beginning of my own training, I would tell him that he could use his magnetism to be famous and wealthy and have many followers. He would laugh at me. Now, I completely understand and identify with his stance and approach. It “only” took something like 10 years to realize that.
In a world where everyone lives off their perfect “instagrammable lives”, it takes more courage to be a real human than to establish the appearance of a near perfect life.
He would let the magnetic transmission and training do its work, with him being only a vehicle to transmitting the knowledge, without claiming – or wanting to be – the ultimate magnetic man.
The first few exercises are usually enough for everyone to notice whether this kind of material has value or not.
For me it was perfectly obvious once I started my own training. I knew this material had a potential to be life changing. Not because a “guru” maintained some sort of perfect life that I wanted, but because I saw the potential of the training to change myself.
Do the work and embrace the changes. Not because of any sort of “guru”, but because you see the value in this training to change your life.
