Fingerprints of the Gods

Been reading this book…

“Fingerprints of the Gods” by Graham Hancock. It’s this interesting look at human history and his argument that there used to be a super-advanced civilization on Earth that created all the big wonders of the world.

And are the source of “God” in all the ancient myths and religions.

I have to admit… it’s pretty fascinating.

Even if, I don’t really buy his theory.

Tracing back through history and all the ancient ruins, taking a second look… with the dramatic twist… “Could this be a sign of a super-advanced civilization?” Definitely satisfies my sci-fi nerd-iosity.

Anyway, it got me thinking about this guy…

Graham Hancock.

Best I can tell he’s a bit of a outcast author that mainstream science laughs at. His own Wikipedia page even says: “He is known for his pseudoscientific theories. An example of pseudohistory and pseudoarchaeology, his work has neither been peer reviewed nor published in academic journals.”


That’s cold, bro!

Yet, he’s got over 200,000 followers on Twitter. Judging by the number of Amazon reviews on his books, he’s sold hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of copies and he’s carved out a nice little audience…

And makes a decent living doing what he does.

That’s not me suggesting you start spouting a bunch of silly theories.

But, it does show you the power of finding your niche, knowing who you are and owning it. You can do just about anything and make a good living IF you hone in on what your true purpose is and go all in on it.

And, the whole world can stand against you…

And, you still be all right.

That’s why it’s one of the things I teach in my upcoming Freelance Feast course.

Because I find a lot of people have a hard time with it. They get caught up in what’s “practical” and what’s “marketable” — and miss the obvious point that potential is just that… potential.

You have to actualize it.

And, if you’re not following your true purpose…

And doing something you hate…

Or something you’re not naturally talented at…

You’re limiting how much you can actualize. So, the revenue *potential* might be through the roof, but you’re constrained by your own ability to execute. Procrastination, lack of motivation, uncertainty… these will all plague you.

And, keep you from achieving what you’re meant to.

You might just be feeling that now.

Anyway, I figured out a process to liberate you from all that — a simple series of exercises that help you get clear on what your purpose is and develop a commercially viable business around it.

Like I said, it’s part of my upcoming Freelance Feast course.

Of course, that course isn’t available to the general public, yet. But, if you’re a supporter of mine on Patreon, you get early access to all my courses — along with ongoing access to them once they’re live.

I’ve just uploaded the lessons that contain these exercises there.

So, if you want early access…

Plus, access to all 22 of my existing courses…

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!
