Is it possible, that when you awaken the artist within, your entire life takes on a new trajectory? In my earlier article, I have discussed how Geniuses who have actually left a legacy have always been a Master of Many trades. The example I love to quote often is that of Einstein playing the Violin amidst his lectures on physics.
Getting good and pushing your own bar of excellence in any art form will play back into your business and relationships, simply because you have access to wider choices of altered states where your neurology is more equipped to arrive at more creative solutions.
In this article, I would like to share with you the Most Accelerated way to Learn.
Learning by UnConscious Assimilation:
- Find a Genius
- Create the opportunity where you can be around the Genius when he/she is performing what you want to Learn
- Condition Yourself to be Awake and mirror every muscle of the Genius when he/she performs without any conscious effort or interference (You learn this at uP!)
- Practice Obsessively and Compulsively
- Make a Parallel Practice context, where after you indulge in unconscious assimilation you have your own opportunity to perform
- To those of you who are familiar with fractionation – fractionate, others just get good sleep.
This is how I surprise people with the things I know. People ask how do I have so much time to master so many things? The answer is I get there faster. There is a reason I pursued singing when my teachers told me I could be tone deaf and it is a miracle if I ever sing. The reason was I wanted to perfect the art of learning to learn. And also, I consider myself a modeler. And a modeler typically looks for interesting things outside of what he or she may already be good at. And for me, I get a thrill out of discovering things that are both useful and radically different from what I know.
Here are 3 quick Discoveries about Learning from my experience as a Modeler:
- It is not about the techniques
Helping performers who are already at the top get to the next level has led me to believe artistry is not about the technique. And the finer nuances that we don’t even know we need to learn can take decades to learn but with the approach of unconscious assimilation, one can get there way faster. If you do an honest search, every fine artist, the business owner has had a mentor. It may or may not be a formal setup. Learning from a Genius in the field makes a difference because there are things that can’t be coded into steps or words, easily. And most time, what the genius does is so innate to him/her that they will not be conscious of the exact stuff that is making the difference between then and an average performer.
- There is no Creative Gene or the Learning Gene
Your Neurology has the capability to learn and do incredible things. And I truly believe if any one man can walk on water, a good modeler can get anyone to walk on water. I have helped people labeled ADD, ADHD, and all kinds of learning disabilities, learn what was believed impossible for them to learn. And I can assure you – there is nothing that you can’t really learn.
- It is always Polycontextual
The neurology doesn’t demarcate or create boxes around what we learn like most people do consciously. It doesn’t go – this is my passion, this is my business. Instead, everything cross feeds into each other. There is a reason most outstanding scientists grew up listening to some form of classical music, peotry or art. The is a reason most people adore sportsmen. This is because when you master any art form, the states, attitude, and creativity you develop with it will flow into everything else you do.
So, who knows, what may solve your business challenge could be you making that first step to awakening the artist within and going with it till you succeed?
Here is a small video of how Harini and I help individuals develop their modeling skills to become an excellence learner. We pack this learning with the opportunity to model Harini singing for those 6 days and also perform. What Harini and I get thrilled about this entire journey in those 7 days is how right there the learning generalizes into a real business/life project leading to people gathering investment, writing books and launching their own businesses before the dawn of the 8th day. Truly, Awaken the Artist in you and the Genius you will get to the action in ways that will be both be delightful and rewarding when you look back.
