Why You Should Stop Setting Goals And What To Do Instead


In these personal improvement notes from Eben Pagan’s Advanced Learning and Teaching Seminar you’ll discover how to make the results you want to have in your life show up automatically without setting goals and without any “The Secret” woo-woo bullshit

Hey You, Goals

It’s Lewis a.k.a. Nerd #2.

One thing you must keep in mind when seeking improvement is that getting feedback is crucial.

Feedback is the key to doing things better.

There’s two approaches to enhancing an area of your life:

1) Keep doing the same thing which intensifies the signal. We are all guilty of doing this in some area of our life. This causes frustration which is natural because you’re often getting worse and worse results.

2) We observe what we’ve done and we modify our behavior in the future based on what we’ve done.

One thing to keep in mind: Teaching and Learning Are Connected

There’s a loop in your mind that connects them to each other and effects both of them – The teacher teaches, the learner learns. The teacher is affected and they change their behavior and teaching style as they get feedback from the learner. The learner learns and gets feedback from the teacher and changes their approach to getting results as well.

And this all fits within a unique paradigm of learning which says . . .

Level 0 Learning is that of merely having an observation . . .

Level 1 Learning is where your behavior actually changes and . . .

Level 2 Learning is where you change you which leads to many of your behaviors changing.

Think about these levels in the context of these examples…



Eben Pagan & Joe Polish On Getting Access To And Learning From Masters

See in these personal improvement notes on Eben Pagan’s Advanced Learning and Teaching seminar the quickest way to slay the obstacles that keep you from what you want

Hey You, Phelps

Eben Pagan believes that one of the fastest and most efficient ways to learn and evolve that is 10x better than any other method is to work directly with a master – 1 on 1 coaching with them getting direct mentoring feedback.

But first you’ve to figure out what you want to accomplish and then see if you can identify someone who’s an absolute master of that universe.

Tony Robbins is brilliant at this. His mindset matches Eben’s. He figures why take longer to get the result I want when I can seek out the person who’s the greatest at doing or teaching it and learn what they know?

I wish he still did his Power Talk interviews because this was him seeking out people who were masters and then he gave you an outstanding hour + long introduction to who they were and what they were all about.

Through these interviews was how I first found out about Jay Abraham, John Wooden, Marva Collins, and many more masters.

And then at a level above that, he sought out even more masters for his Mastery training events. One guy he brought out in particular, Pete Egoscue has changed my physical body for the better forever.

Every single one of the people have impacted my life positively and what I’ve learned from them will stick with me until I buy a ticket to the next existence. Yeah, the lessons and behavior changes I’ve encountered are THAT significant.

And these hard-hitting impressions were all made through reading and listening. I can’t fathom what results would be had had I sought them out for a 1-on-1 consult.

Hey you, Lucky 2

It’s Lewis a.k.a. Nerd #2.

Have you ever known someone who it just seems like everything works out for them?

I have.

And I’m lucky enough to have one of these people as my baby brother.

People FUCKING LOVE this guy. Throughout his entire life he’s never hurt for friends, money, women, jobs, anything he needed. 

He’s very handsome and but more than that, he’s a fiercely loyal person and he’s got one of the friendliest and fun personalities of anyone I know.

Here’s a life and death example of how this blessed life of his works . . . 


Success Isn’t What You Think It Is

In these personal improvement notes on Eben Pagan’s “How To Be Creative and Innovative” course you’ll see why most people have their head up their ass when it comes to the idea of what success is and isn’t and why this keeps them from actually experiencing life as the wish it would be

Hey You,

It’s Lewis a.k.a. Nerd #2.

Have you bought something and thought to yourself, “NOW, this problem is finally going to be handled!!!” only to find that sooner or later this wasn’t the case?

I have.

Dandruff shampoo, subliminal success audios, fake tits, and a business-in-a-box are all products that people buy everyday thinking “This is gonna be the ticket to getting what I want.”

And 9.9 times out of 10, it’s NOT. 

I believe you’re a person who’s felt like you’ve been let down over and over and over again by products/services that didn’t match up to the promise made in the marketing . . . and/or you feel like you keep letting yourself down because you don’t implement the solutions you buy.

What I also believe you know in your heart is that it doesn’t have to be this way.

Personal improvement insights from Eben Pagan’s Advanced Learning and Teaching Seminar


Get ready to experience this level of joy

It’s Lewis a.k.a. Nerd #2.

On Monday, we talked about how the way you’ve been learning your whole life is wrong in this post here.

And today, I want to tell you about something you’ve never learned to master even though it’s the most important thing you could ever learn to master.

Most people think their head is the most important part of their body. It is important, but our heart is majorly important as well.

The ancient Egyptians used to value the heart more than the brain believing that’s where all of thoughts came from which is why when someone died, they would preserve the heart and throw the brain in the garbage. Primitive idiots, right? Nope.

As a science journalist, Daniel Goleman reported on the brain and behavioral sciences for The New York Times for many years and what he revealed was that the Egyptians were onto something.

His 1995 book, “Emotional Intelligence” was on The New York Times bestseller list for a year-and-a-half, with more than 5,000,000 copies in print worldwide in 40 languages, and has been a best seller in many countries.

The research conducted for this book found that emotional IQ was more important to your success than your mental IQ was. 

The only problem is that no one taught you about this when you were growing up and in Daniel’s books he tells you what to do, but not how to do it. Today you’ll finally see how to learn the most important skill you need but first let’s answer the question of . . . 

What Is Emotional Intelligence?

What Can You Learn About Personal Improvement, Teaching and Consuming Content From The Man Who Could Teach You To Speak A New Language In 5 Days? Answer: A Metric Shit-Ton.

Hey You,

It’s Lewis a.k.a. Nerd #2.

I’ve been studying Eben Pagan’s Advanced Learning and Teaching Seminar and I came across a guy I think you should know about.

Wyatt Woodsmall, the gentleman who is co-presenting at this seminar with Eben has had the good fortune to model a man he believes to be one of the greatest educators of the 20th century.

Modeling is the process of analyzing the specific behaviors and thinking patterns of another person or system in order to duplicate their successful results.

Michel Thomas was world famous because he could teach you to speak a new language in 5 days.

He lived to be 90 years old and Wyatt and his wife published a book not too long ago chronicling how he did what he did; The Future of Learning – The Michel Thomas Method.

Have You Ever Been The Victim of “The Blind Leading The Blind”?


How To Read A Book In 15 Minutes

On the road to personal improvement we meet with the challenge of reading books. In Eben Pagan and Wyatt Woodsmall’s Advanced Learning & Teaching seminar they reveal how to tear through and get the meaningful meat out of books like a beast just like the pro’s do

Hey You,

It’s Lewis a.k.a. Nerd #2.

If you hate reading, you’re gonna love what you see here.

If you love to read (like I do) and you’ve got 40 books laying around you have only read 1/3 of (like I do) you’re gonna love what you see here.

What Eben and Wyatt reveal here is how to take charge and ditch all the bullshit reading habits you’ve picked up over the years that have kept you in the slow reading lane.

Now let’s get this party started by answering the question of . . .

What Is Reading All About And How Do We Use It To Learn?

In the dis-educational world we’re given things called text books.

George Bernard Shaw was known for saying . . .

“I don’t want my work in text books because I don’t want to be hated.”

The dis-educational system has a hard time teaching reading because it doesn’t understand what reading is. They confuse two things – reading and pronouncing.
