“Traditional academia does not factor in whole brain development when creating its curriculum. It focusses on activating those parts that are specific to preparing a person for one skill set, which quickly becomes outdated in the ever changing work landscape, where people are then forced to be on a continual quest to up level their skill-set and knowledge, to meet industry demands through alternative professional development avenues.
This is why the coaching industry is growing at an exponential rate – to fill the gap left behind by archaic, sub-optimal education institutions that draw out the learning process to feed their bottom line at the expense of individuals being left with huge debts and an outdated education that sets them up to fail.”
~ Raj Girn, Founder, The Open Chest® Confidence Academy
Have you ever wondered why we aren’t taught all of the things that we need in order to set us up to succeed in life? I have, and continue to do so, because there is an abundance of evidence that supports the notion that historically speaking, most of us have been set up to fail in life. Let me explain . . .
If we look at recent history, from the start of the industrial revolution (150 years ago), the education system was intentionally created to depower individual growth and empower institutional growth, in a top down infrastructure system, that was (and still is), set up to benefit the few (haves) by enslaving the masses (have nots). It does this by giving limited access to resources to the general public, with the goal of developing minimal skills that are intended to keep us down and reliant on working for a portion of what we are worth, rather than maximizing our capabilities to be self-sufficient, through whole brain activation training.
As a result, we have been and continue to be, conditioned and taught to play small in the macrocosm of manmade infrastructures, that have been created to sustain the status quo of inequity (knowledge, resources, economic, social, gender, and ethnic) – and to do so willingly, with a smile on our faces, being thankful for the gift of government control and exorbitant taxes, which are used to further strengthen those systems that keep us down. We pay for the privilege of being dehumanized, and the difference between the perceived “free world” (North America and Europe) and communist countries, is that the latter is honest about the incarceration that controls its subjects.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that what we have built is all bad (LOL), just that it could be far better if we were to re-imagine the power dynamic, where we arm the masses to be reliant on themselves rather than on the state. I believe that just this one change would set us up for a more equitable and optimal quality of life. What is currently in place, however, empowers only the few, which is why we have a world wrought with systems that are breaking down, because the masses have cottoned onto the lie and as a consequence, are very unhappy. The global, mental health pandemic is one example of this, where we are turning to alternative lifestyles and value systems to find the nirvana that the industrial revolution had promised us and failed to deliver on.
Similarly in India and China, (who I’m not letting off the hook by any means), had created infrastructures that go back thousands of years beyond the industrial revolution, where people were cattled into an impervious system called the caste system, where people were fated to a life pre-ordained by the family lineage that they were born into, and not allowed to live on the efforts of their own volition. And although this system has since been legally abolished, it is still very much a part of the culture and its value system.
It’s because of this insipid inequity that I’m on a mission to support as many people as I possibly can around the world – through my coaching, consulting, and mentoring services – to arm them with the knowledge, resources, actionable steps, and accountability support that they need, to move the dial on their work life, so as to elevate the quality of the life they want to live and provide to others.
If you’re in need of direction on how to work step-by-step through finding your life’s purpose in any capacity, send me an email to set up a free, no obligation call and let’s explore how I can guide you through my one-on-one coaching service (Consult With Raj Girn), to move the dial towards your intended direction (and if I cannot help you, I’ll do everything in my power to find someone who can).
