T E C H N O L O GY OF CREATING

  1. 1. CREATING THE RESULTS THAT MATTER TO YOU (Adapted from “The Path of Least Resistance” written by Robert Fritz)‏
  2. 2. RESULT <ul><li>You will learn how to shift from reacting and responding to circumstances to creating the result you want </li></ul>
  3. 3. CREATING <ul><li>is bringing about things that are most important to you in a tangible way: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>your dreams </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>aspirations and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>what you truly want your life to be </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. CREATING <ul><li>has NOTHING to do with </li></ul><ul><ul><li>fixing what does not work or </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>getting away from something you don’t like or you don’t want, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>it’s NOT problem solving </li></ul></ul><ul><li>is NOT designed to heal you, fix you, or satisfy you </li></ul>
  5. 5. CREATING <ul><li>is a way in which you can bring your talents, energies, actions, imagination, reason, intuition and </li></ul><ul><li>even love to the creation you desire </li></ul><ul><li>Love is generative rather than simply responsive </li></ul><ul><li>If you love your creation enough  you will take whatever actions necessary to bring the creation into the world </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>A deep longing to create resides within the human soul </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone has an urge to bring something into being that has not existed before except in their imagination </li></ul>
  7. 7. CREATING EXERCISE
  8. 8. Desire Concept Vision Current Reality Action Evaluate Learn Adjust Completion Bestowing Judgement Receiving Creation has a life of its own S T R U C T U R A L T E N S I O N
  9. 9. <ul><li>People are by nature creators </li></ul><ul><li>but </li></ul><ul><li>very few have been trained to create </li></ul>
  10. 10. Experience while <ul><li>CREATING </li></ul><ul><li>Involved </li></ul><ul><li>Focused outwardly </li></ul><ul><li>Focused in the moment </li></ul><ul><li>A sense of timelessness </li></ul><ul><li>A feeling of freedom </li></ul><ul><li>A sense of vital energy </li></ul><ul><li>A sense of themselves/ independence </li></ul><ul><li>Life seems important </li></ul><ul><li>NOT CREATING </li></ul><ul><li>Often not involved </li></ul><ul><li>Focused inwardly </li></ul><ul><li>Not focused </li></ul><ul><li>Often under pressure </li></ul><ul><li>Somewhat oppressed by circumstances </li></ul><ul><li>Often tired or depleted </li></ul><ul><li>Unclear sense of themselves </li></ul><ul><li>Life often seems arbitrary </li></ul>
  11. 11. In the creative process <ul><li>You never need to misrepresent to yourself what you think or want </li></ul><ul><li>You focus on your REAL opinions and REAL desires when you first conceive of a result </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t know whether or not it is possible to create the result </li></ul><ul><li>You know only that it seems probable </li></ul>
  12. 12. First Step <ul><li>A simple question: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What results do you want to create? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>You conceive of the result you want </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t know HOW you will GET THERE </li></ul><ul><li>You want what you want whether or not it is possible </li></ul>
  13. 13. Criteria for good end results <ul><li>It is the end result. </li></ul><ul><li>It is separate from you. </li></ul><ul><li>It doesn’t have to be created. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not problem solving. </li></ul><ul><li>It is what you want independent of whether or not it’s possible. </li></ul><ul><li>It is driven by desire, not by circumstances. </li></ul><ul><li>It is clear and specific, rather than vague and unspecific. It can be quantified. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not an ideal. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Second Step <ul><li>CHOICE! </li></ul><ul><li>Ask the right question: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What end result do you want? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Answer it regardless of the circumstances or any situation </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You know the answer either rationally or intuitively </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>When you make a choice, you focus vast human energy which goes untapped </li></ul>
  15. 15. How to choose <ul><li>Ask the question “What do you want?” </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t limit what you want based on what you think is possible </li></ul><ul><li>Conceive of the whole picture of what you want including the circumstances and choose them all </li></ul><ul><li>Ask yourself the test-question: “If I could have it, would I take it?” </li></ul><ul><li>If YES, </li></ul><ul><li>Formally make your choice </li></ul>
  16. 16. Types of Choices <ul><li>Primary Choice – about the final result (this is something you want )‏ </li></ul><ul><li>Secondary Choices – actions in support of the primary choice </li></ul><ul><li>Fundamental Choice </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Essentially different from other choices </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s not about a direct result </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s about a state of being </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s about your general orientation/perspective </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s a foundation of your life-building process </li></ul></ul>
  17. 17. Fundamental Choice <ul><li>to be the predominant creative force in your life; </li></ul><ul><li>to be true to yourself ; </li></ul><ul><li>to be free (of fears, negative thoughts and feelings); </li></ul><ul><li>to be healthy (mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually). </li></ul>
  18. 18. Fundamental Choice <ul><li>Once you have made a fundamental choice  you will naturally organize your primary and secondary choices in concert with the fundamental choice </li></ul><ul><li> the level of your involvement becomes self-generating rather than dependent upon circumstances </li></ul>
  19. 19. Third Step: Current Reality <ul><li>Accurately describing the present conditions is a skill that can be developed </li></ul><ul><li>You need to develop the skill of viewing reality objectively </li></ul>
  20. 20. Common Mistakes <ul><li>Describing only what you don’t like about the condition </li></ul><ul><li>Describing only what you do like about the condition </li></ul><ul><li>Making it seem worse than it really is </li></ul><ul><li>Making it seem better than it really is </li></ul><ul><li>Minimizing how good or bad it is </li></ul><ul><li>Imposing how it “should” be on how it really is </li></ul><ul><li>Analyzing how it got to be the way it is </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Structural Tension </li></ul>VISION Result you want to create Current Reality What you now have T E N S I O N RESOLUTION R E S U L T SEEKS LOVE TRUTH
  22. 22. Structural Tension <ul><li>Tension can only be resolved in three ways: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You can give up what you want (vision). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You can misrepresent what you currently have (current reality). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You can create what you want (structural tension – creative tension)‏ </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Tension is structural, not psychological </li></ul>
  23. 23. FOCUS <ul><li>an important ability in the creative process that can be developed </li></ul><ul><li>focusing on </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the result and </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>what you currently have in relation to the result </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Principle: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Conscious focus creates energy” </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Two types of motivation <ul><li>Our actions are motivated either by our circumstances </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Problems, unwanted consequences, conflicts, lack of resources, conflict of interests, pressure from others </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>REACTING AND RESPONDING </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(action is either a reaction against or a response to circumstances)‏ </li></ul></ul>
  25. 25. The problem <ul><li>LEADS TO </li></ul><ul><li>Action to solve the problem </li></ul><ul><li>LEADS TO </li></ul><ul><li>Less intensity of the problem </li></ul><ul><li>LEADS TO </li></ul><ul><li>Less action to solve the problem </li></ul><ul><li>LEADS TO </li></ul><ul><li>The problem remaining </li></ul>
  26. 26. Two types of motivation <ul><li>Our actions are motivated by desire and aspiration </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To bring something into being, to accomplish results that matter, to build something </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CREATING </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(action taken is motivated by desire to achieve an end result)‏ </li></ul></ul>
  27. 27. <ul><li>PROBLEM SOLVING : </li></ul><ul><li>IS TAKING ACTION TO HAVE SOMETHING GO AWAY </li></ul><ul><li>– THE PROBLEM </li></ul><ul><li>CREATING : </li></ul><ul><li>IS TAKING ACTION TO HAVE SOMETHING COME INTO BEING </li></ul><ul><li>– THE CREATION </li></ul>
  28. 28. Tension-Resolution Systems <ul><li>A structural principle in nature: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>tension seeks resolution </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In nature and in our lives there are structures of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Simple tension-resolution systems </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Complex tension-resolution systems </li></ul></ul>
  29. 29. Simple System <ul><li>Contains one single tension </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tension  Resolution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hungry  Eat </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Overweight  Not eat </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Two simple systems tied together </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tension  Resolution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hungry  Eat </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Overweight  Not eat </li></ul></ul>
  30. 30. <ul><li>You can’t resolve the tension in these two systems </li></ul><ul><li>Resolution in the system increases the tension of the other system </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tension Resolution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Hungry Eat </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Overweight Not eat </li></ul></ul>
  31. 31. <ul><li>On the level of appearance the dieter is taking action to lose weight </li></ul><ul><li>On the level of structure, the actions are designed to resolve structural conflict </li></ul>
  32. 32. Structural Conflict <ul><li>We have two or more tension-resolution systems with mutually exclusive points of resolution </li></ul><ul><li>The behaviour you see is oscillation over an extended period of time </li></ul><ul><li>The underlying structure gives rise to your behaviour </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes it’s easier to diet, sometimes it’s easier to eat </li></ul>
  33. 33. Basic Structure of Structural Conflict <ul><li>Tension Resolution </li></ul><ul><li>Desire to have Have end result desired result </li></ul><ul><li>Belief you can’t Do not have the have what you desired result want </li></ul><ul><li>This structure reinforces fixed patterns of behaviour. It’s common in our lives. </li></ul>
  34. 34. Basic Structure of Structural Conflict <ul><li>Is formed by two competing tension - resolution systems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Your desire </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Your incompatible dominant belief that you can’t have what you desire! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>“ Solving” structural conflict: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You “give up” your dominant belief </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You “give up” your desire </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Structural Conflict is NOT resolvable </li></ul>
  35. 35. Compensating Strategies <ul><ul><li>Staying within the area of tolerable conflict </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Conflict manipulation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Willpower manipulation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>You may develop one or more of these strategies  all of them inhibit true creating </li></ul>
  36. 36. Area of tolerable conflict <ul><li>The goal is equilibrium </li></ul><ul><li>Minimize the amplitude of the oscillation </li></ul><ul><li>Oscillation creates emotional experiences (minimize uncomfortable feelings so that they can be tolerated; avoid change; “you don’t rock the boat”; when challenged – move away from conflict)‏ </li></ul><ul><li>Behaviour limits aspiration and minimizes loss </li></ul><ul><li>Reaching for only the “realistic” </li></ul>
  37. 37. Area of tolerable conflict Negative Belief Desire
  38. 38. Conflict Manipulation <ul><li>You try to “motivate” yourself into action by </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Intensifying the conflict – presenting a “negative” vision (fear, guilt, and pity) or unwanted consequence </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Taking action only to reduce pressure and relieve the emotional conflict instead of creating what you want </li></ul></ul>
  39. 39. Conflict Manipulation Negative Consequence I can have what I want I can’t have what I want I can’t have what I want I can have what I want
  40. 40. Willpower Manipulation <ul><li>Many people take little or no action unless they “motivate” themselves through </li></ul><ul><ul><li>positive attitudes (“self-manipulation”), </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>positive thinking (“affirmations”, “mantras”), </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>inspiration, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>exaggerated determination (forcing themselves in compliance with what they wish to see happen)‏ </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the structure reinforces powerlessness over time </li></ul></ul>
  41. 41. Willpower Manipulation Negative Belief Desire Negative Belief Negative Belief Desire Desire
  42. 42. <ul><li>Structural conflict is not resolvable </li></ul><ul><li>We need another structure that is senior to structural conflict </li></ul><ul><li>This NEW structure: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>incorporates structural conflict into itself </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>transposes a complex structure into a simple structure </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>it has ONE major tension  with a tendency to completely resolve it in favour of the desired result </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> STRUCTURAL TENSION </li></ul></ul>
  43. 43. <ul><li>Structural Tension </li></ul>VISION Result you want to create Current Reality What you now have T E N S I O N RESOLUTION R E S U L T SEEKS INCLUDING SOMETIMES STRUCTURAL CONFLICT (Oscillation)‏ LOVE TRUTH
  44. 44. The pivotal technique <ul><li>Is used when circumstances are not the way you want them to be </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Describe where you are </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Describe where you want to be </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Once again, formally choose the result you want </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Move on </li></ul></ul><ul><li> This technique re-establishes STRUCTURAL TENSION </li></ul>
