In today’s episode #2: Garrett interviews Anti-preneur and email marketing gourmet Ben Settle about neediness, massive life changes, and the finer points of not giving a fxxk:
-The Victim to Adventurer motif, ancient wisdom from the classic myth-Two and a Half Men. (Winning!)
-“Outcome independence”–Do you win more when you don’t give a fxxk?
-Why saving yourself first is not only NOT wrong or mean, it’s mandatory.
-Why if you get shot walking down the street, it’s your own fault.
-Getting comfortable with success.
-Robin Williams…wtf happened?
-The power of not knowing and knowing it.
-What common human trait is akin to woman and client repellent.
-Confidence = Being too busy with your life to give a fxxk.
-“The only thing going on a pedestal is my mission in life.”–Ben Settle
-Poli-tricks: Monsieur, would you care for the rat poison or the cyanide.
-What’s everybody got against having fun?
-Fun as the guiding force of life.
Editor’s Note: we block out letters in the word fxxk due to the fact that itunes doesn’t allow it to pass their strict filters. We apologize for an inconvenience, and promise to say the word fxxk many times during the show to make up for it. Please forgive us. It’s the Art of Not Giving a F*ck after all.

Here’s the thing:
It’s great getting Undoing sessions over Skype. It’s the next best thing to getting a session in real life with a skilled practitioner.
The first time I ever had a session with Dr. Hyatt, it upgraded my understanding of the Undoing work in a huge way.
I went from earnest beginner to solid intermediate in that one experience.
But–that was the result of all the practice and efforts I made on my own.
If I hadn’t had the experiences before that, it might not have even made sense to me at all.
Since I decided to stay in Colombia for a while longer, I figured you might enjoy a visit down here too.
It’s especially beautiful on the coast here, right near the equator. There’s so many fruits, so many new foods, so many amazing wild areas filled with creatures and plants I’ve never even imagined before.
It’s time to take a break and get deep into your own organic nature.
It’s also time to immerse yourself in the greater organic and wild flow–because that’s what the flowing life is all about:
Getting in deeper touch with yourself, and learning how to make yourself the primary source of information and authority in your life.
Experience your own bulletproof confidence.
Get a world-class undoing experience.
Fully catered organic meals–including local beer, wine, and drinks.
Spend a week in a beautiful villa on the coast.
Leave your old ways and your limitations behind forever.
Be prepared to take action on anything that inspires you.
Experience the victim to adventurer shift in your own life.
This is the very first time we’ve ever offered a workshop of this magnitude–live–and in a perpetual paradise overflowing with organic beauty.
You can expect to make vast headway on getting rid of fears, self-doubts, procrastination, and worries.
Plus, we’ll setup some adventures for you–and make sure every aspect of your trip is the most expansive, fun, and enjoyable experience you’ve ever had.
Click that button and I’ll send you an invite and application for the live workshop.
It’s limited to 10 people, as I want to make it the highest quality experience possible–and that gets tougher the more people you add into the mix.
I’m super excited to meet you in person, to demonstrate the immense power of the undoing work, and to help you EXPERIENCE the shift from Victim to Adventurer over that mind-blowing, life-expanding, limitation-busting week.
Tomorrow, I’ll tell you a little more about the basic NGF training and how it’ll help you to overcome self-doubt, fear, guilt, and your old pesky habits.
From February 11 onward, We’ll be building toward the first round of Elite NGF 3 month training. You’ll still be able to do the basic training, but if you want sessions or to ensure that you get the best results in your undoing work–click here to get some sessions. (Sessions available for a short time longer. I’ll be restricting Undoing and Hypnosis sessions to Elite Training and in-person work ONLY.)
The way you do the exercises is the way you do everything else in your life.
If you’re hesitating, look closely at difficult situations in your life. What are you holding back?
If you’re forcing the movements, which situations in your life are you bringing too much aggression? Are you trying to force things?
It gets really fascinating once you make the exercises and experiments your own, and start navigating your own Flowing Life from the sovereign perspective of your own body, direct experience, and perception.
You’ll see that the tension around your eyes was keeping you from seeing your partner in a new and different light.
You’ll notice that you fear a catastrophe–instead of being present to the current situation–when your shoulders rise up with tension.
You’ll notice that you can learn a lot from that body you carry around all the time, if you’d just start paying some attention to it.
The cool thing is that all attention paid to your body and your direct experience is an investment that will always repay you a hundredfold in ways you can’t even imagine.
Everything gets a lot easier when you keep your mind rooted in your body.
You’ll no longer be haunted by phantoms of thought, past guilts, and future catastrophes.
Instead, you’ll just be living, growing, and experiencing things as you go.
Try out this exercise, and then leave a comment or hit reply and let me know what YOU learned about YOURSELF by doing it:
Make sure you try it at least 10 or 12 times before making any assessments or analysis.
Even better if you make a video of yourself and watch it for clues.
When you do the Basic Training, you’ll learn how to upload hundreds of these kinds of organic tools into your bodily operating system–all to put you back in charge of your own Flowing Life.
See you there,
Garrett Daun and Command Z
Command Z is a collaborative effort between Garrett Daun, Paula Galindo, and a small collective of contributors. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to get an interview podcast that goes deep into the history of Command Z and how and why this all got started.
If you’re like me, you’ve run the gauntlet of personal development, philosophy, self-growth, life change, brain change, religion, spirituality, extreme physical pursuits. When I first started searching for true brain and life change, I felt frustrated at every turn.
I wanted results, but what I found was mostly trash that took me further away from my goals. Most people and systems were just complicated fantasies designed to make you feel like something’s changing, and then you find yourself right back where you started.
When you’re finally willing to face that much of your life has been guided by forces outside of your control, then you’re ready to start dismantling your conditioning and building a life of your own making.
In all of my searching for powerful life enhancement techniques, I kept track of anything that has a real impact–that means when you do it, you get results.
After over 15 years of trying out everything I could get my hands on, I have the experience to know what works (.01%) and the guts to burn the rest (the other 99.99%), leaving you with exactly what you need to start living the life you really want.
What that means for you is radical changes in your life, faster and more smoothly than you ever imagined possible.
Most recently, I’ve advanced my training in hypnotherapy through Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI)–a training that began with one of my teachers, Dr. Christopher Hyatt, many years ago–as well as training with a professional mentalist, and expanding my practice of hypnotherapy and Undoing through other trainings and resources.
Paula has advanced training in psychology, hypnotherapy through HMI, as well as advanced work in Undoing and other body-based transformation systems. Look for more from her in the blog, and check out her post on handwriting analysis.
You can start your own Radical Undoing transformation in whatever way suits you best.
We invite you to get in touch so we can meet up on Skype and invite you to the private Inner Circle (full of supportive people undoing themselves and making changes in their lives), Art of Not Giving a Fuck Basic Training, and working directly with Garrett on extremely powerful personal Undoing and hypnosis sessions.
Is it possible to enjoy everything you experience, regardless of what’s going on around you?
It’s a controversial question, and one that most people will answer automatically with a sour, “NO!”
Others may respond with a “Yes, but…” followed by some banter about how you’ve got to get rid of “negative” emotions first, or only if you prostrate yourself to some guru first, or some prescription or other.
Robert Scheinfeld, the author of the new book, The Ultimate Key to Happiness, says YES. Not only that, but he says we’ve all already experienced what he calls True Happiness hundreds of times in our lives. It’s just that we’ve never looked clearly at what happiness really is, and what it is that prevents us from experiencing it all the time…
As with everything we present through Command Z, don’t take our word for it, and whatever you do, don’t believe these assertions. Instead, look closely, think for yourself, and find out what’s true. The whole purpose of all of this is for you to experience it for yourself.
That’s how we operate at Command Z, and that’s how Robert operates as well. He experiences things first, and then comes back to share those experiences with others so they can experience it for themselves, if they choose.
Below, you can find a player with an MP3 of a discussion between Robert and I about his new book and the experience of abiding True Happiness. You can listen here or download the MP3 with the link below the player.
I’d love to hear your thoughts, reactions, comments, and questions about the discussion, so feel free to leave them in the comments section below.
Thanks again to Robert Scheinfeld for stopping by to share.
