Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration

The famous writer Stephen King said an interesting sentence:

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”

This is correct in pretty much everything in life, not just in creative endeavors.

It’s not just about writing or painting or music.

It goes much further than this, and includes every area where you need to produce something.

It can be a boring report or a computer project. It doesn’t matter.

If you are waiting for you to “feel like it” before doing something, you might be waiting for a long time. That’s the most normal mental chatter in procrastination.

You check your body, your body isn’t “feeling it”, so you move on doing whatever lazy thing you were doing or delay that activity.

Inspiration or motivation to do something, can be there a few days – hopefully more than a few – but on most days, you have to simply start whether you feel like it or not.

Then, “the muse of inspiration” will pop up A LOT more often. But it requires that act of Will in the beginning of actually start doing what you want to be doing.

It requires putting in the effort to do it, whether you feel like it or not, and show up to do the work with all your intention put on it.

Not just doing it for the sake of doing, but doing it with your full mind, body and energy on it. This is about “owning” what you do – as the students of Will Mastery already know very well.

Only this way can the “muse” show up.

If you’re doing it with a bored mental state, just to get it over with, very rarely will this “inspiration” pop up.

But once you actually “own” what you do, then the possibilities become a lot greater!

are people accepting your projection?

The way to understand the strength of your projection is mostly one:

Are others actually feeling it? Are they changing their behaviors toward you? Or not?

That’s the most important guideline.

You can be feeling it quite well inside, but have no results on the outside.

Then you know something is wrong.

Maybe they are not accepting your projection OR you aren’t projecting it correctly or strongly enough.

The first case – they are not accepting your projection – can happen on certain people. Regardless of strong your magnetism is and how well you project, you won’t please everyone.

If you really wanted for someone to feel your magnetism you would have to adapt it to a kind of energy they can accept.

But this – supposedly – will only happen in a minimum of situations. Or at least, that’s the main goal. Your magnetism will be strong enough to influence most people around you.

If in the majority of the interactions, others aren’t feeling your magnetism, then, most likely, you have a problem in your projection.

It can be a projection block, or related to the energy or about the strength of it.

Either way, it’s something you need fix if you want others to feel your magnetism.

The most common cause is a projection block. You may be feeling energy quite well inside, but are still blocking your projection.

In other words, the energy can be there but it’s not getting out. It’s like an armor is preventing it. Not only do you need to feel the energy flowing correctly inside but you’ll also need to feel the energy getting out – using your projection sources (your voice, your gaze, etc).

The most direct consequence of this problem is that others won’t be able to feel it. Until this projection block is fixed, no influence can take place.

So, if you’re not achieving the influence you think you should, feel your own projection to make sure it’s actually going out.

We work on fixing this projection blocks specifically on sexual energy, on the Become a Sexual Man training.

Being magnetic in the wrong direction

Here’s an interesting quote from William Walker Atkinson:

“Each and every individual is in possession of a certain degree of personal magnetism; that each person may increase the degree and strengthen the power by knowledge and practice.

Even the most “un-magnetic” person possesses personal magnetism, perhaps even to a considerable degree, but is generally so ignorant of the nature of the force of the means of its employment, that he or she actually repels other persons instead of attracting them. For, do not fail to note this fact, personal magnetism, like material magnetism, may repel as well as attract – it has its positive as well as its negative side. Many very repellent persons are really manifesting a high degree of personal magnetism in a negative form, and are driving away persons from them in the same manner that others attract persons to them – it is all a matter of the use of the power.

The fact is that every person generates and throws off a certain degree (varying among different individuals) of personal magnetism, which affects the minds of other persons coming within the field of its influence. Not only does each person emanate and project a certain amount or degree of personal magnetism, additionally, each person is also constantly surrounded by a field of personal magnetic influence – a personal atmosphere, so to speak. This personal atmosphere affects to a greater or lesser degree other persons coming within its field of influence.

This personal atmosphere varies greatly in degree of strength, extent and general character, among different individuals. The average person has but a weak personal atmosphere, which extends but a short distance on all sides of him, while the strong characters of the race are surrounded by a widely spread personal atmosphere of great, power, especially when they are aroused by any strong emotion, feeling or desire. The personal atmosphere of those strong individuals, who are generally recognized as leaders of the race, usually extends great distances from the person, and is fairly saturated with strong dynamic magnetism, which impresses itself strongly upon those coming within their field of influence.

But even the weaker individuals of the race, or using personal magnetism unconsciously, exert at least some degree of influence upon those around them. It requires but a moment’s thought to recognize that some persons emanate an atmosphere of good-cheer, brightness, and happiness, which affects in a desirable way all persons with whom they come in contact. Others, in the same way, are surrounded by an atmosphere of gloom, pessimism and discouragement, which adversely affects persons coming near them. These things are too common to even excite interest among the average persons, but in this phenomena may be found the key to the higher forms of personal magnetism.

We are so accustomed to regarding personal magnetism as meaning only the positive, attractive phase, that it comes as a shock to some of us to be told that the repelling personal atmosphere is equally “magnetic” – that is, magnetic in the wrong direction.”

This is important for you to keep in mind, particularly if you are repelling people instead of attracting. Your magnetism may already be strong… but it’s strong in the wrong direction.
