Internal Vs. External Drivers
There was this doctor that has always been torn.
He was always good at talking to people.
Not because he enjoyed it, but because he would always get good results.
Positive results based on what the people he was talking to wanted.
So he won a scholarship to a famous medical university.
Follow Your Brain?
And he was really smart, so he passed all his classes with high honors.
And he became a doctor with a huge following and a stellar reputation.
But he really hated being a doctor.
He didn’t like people, but he kept being a doctor because of the social pressure and a the money.
Inner Brain Power
I used to know these two guys.
They met during a hypnosis seminar and became fast friends.
One day, as a prank they tried to have a self-hypnosis contest.
Who could hypnotize themselves to think a lemon tasted like a cheeseburger.
Pretty soon it became a popular event.
Try This One…
People would bring very non-delicious and a bunch of cards with the names of delicious food written on the cards.
Then they would pick one of each at random, and see how well they would match.
Like they would eat a bowl of wasabi, but they would be self hypnotized to it tasted like chocolate pudding.
Once there was this famous juggler.
He was at the end of his career and he went on a TV show.
He talked about his career, but it turned out to be a tragic story with him balling like a baby by the end of the interview.
And it made all of his fans feel incredibly guilty.
He was just starting what he’d hoped to be his dream career.
Need To Pace The Breaks
And to pass the time during necessary study breaks, he started juggling.
Then he mentioned that he juggled as a hobby at a party, and people asked to see him.
He performed, and he was much, much better than he had imagined.
He never wanted to be a performer, he only wanted to keep his hands and minds busy when studying for his real career.
Yeah, Hang On…
Pretty soon, due to social pressure, he was performing at parties.
Then somebody filmed him and put him up on YouTube, and he was famous.
Now he had social pressure and tons of ad revenue pulling him away from his career.
Pretty soon he was on famous TV shows and performing his juggling routine in front of Kings and Queens and Presidents and even the Pope.
But it was all empty and not fulfilling.
The more he drifted away from his dream career, the sadder he got on the inside, despite is riches and fame and the obviously gorgeous young women desperate to have sex with this world famous juggler.
Angry And Misunderstood
Once there was this old man.
He got it into his head that children love tomatoes.
And he further got it into his head that it was his mission in live to grow delicious tomatoes and give them to the children.
That if children ate his tomatoes, and recognized his super genius tomato growing skills, the world would see what a splendid fellow he was.
So he grew tomatoes.
They’re Gonna Love Me
And he sat in his drive way behind a table with a bowl full of tomatoes.
And when kids would walk by, he would tell them to come get their tomatoes.
But none of the kids liked tomatoes.
And his resting face was pretty mean looking.
So every time a kid would walk past his house, and he would shout at the kid to come and get his tomatoes, the kids would run away screaming.
Run Away From Me?!
Then he started throwing the tomatoes at the kids.
Then things changed in a very unexpected way.
Pretty soon kids would go by his house, just to see if they could dodge his tomatoes.
Everybody soon thought that he was pretending to be a mean old man, but he was really playing.
Pretty soon, all the kids would run by his house, taunting the tomato man, thinking it was all a game.
But inside, the tomato man was furious.
Lucky for the kids, his eyesight was poor, and his arm was weak.
So he tried to pelt the kids in the face with his tomatoes, but they would rarely make it all the way to the sidewalk.
Cooking Plans Thwarted
He said that his original plan was to be a chef.
That he dreamed of creating culinary masterpieces.
But because of the mistake of juggling at that one party, his entire life had that of a mindless entertaining.
A juggling clown not recognized for any real skills.
I Will Win Every Time
One guy went too far.
He hypnotized himself so much, he forgot.
And he sat in his back yard for a week eating dirt.
Cheap And Delicious!
He thought he was eating chili cheese fries.
Then he started to get stomach problems.
He went to the doctor and she asked what he’d been eating.
He embarrassingly said chili cheese fries.
She looked at him curiously and said according to our records, you’ve been eating dirt.
He went home and checked his security cameras, and sure enough, he’d been going into his backyard every night and sitting on the ground and eating spoonful after spoonful of delicious dirt.
The Path Not Chosen
He’d always wanted to be a golf pro.
To be alone, on the open grass, hitting the ball into the hole.
But he was such a successful doctor, he didn’t even have time to play golf.
And whenever he did, he was horrible, since he never had time to practice.
