About 2-Be

Hi. I’m Charles Burke, and I’d like to welcome you to my blog. Here, you’ll discover how you can, with some honest effort, make the changes you want, and then keep them – until the day you decide to continue on and make even further improvements.

You’ll find that I try never to sing you lullabyes on this blog, try not to spin you soft, easy fantasies and fairy tales. Get over it. Sooner or later you’ll wake up to the idea that your life is yours, that you’re the one driving, that if you’re in a runaway truck and about to go off-road, it’s not Mommy’s job to fix it, nor some big brother’s job. It’s your life. Take charge and live the thing.

Now, I may occasionally drift off into easy-easy land or hum a few bars of some mawkish tune or other. But I do try to control myself. So if you catch me trying too hard to please, you have my permission to leave a ridiculing comment or go to my contact page and send me a call to get back on track. I’ll try harder to shoot straighter.

Now About Change…

A hypnotist friend once commented, “Change is easy, Charles – you just jack up your hair and replace everything under it.” Since then, as I studied more and more deeply about the mind, I’ve discovered that my friend wasn’t entirely joking.

And that’s what this website is about, getting change. Real change. Lasting change. The kind of change you’ve always wanted and wished for, but which may have eluded you up until now.

The kind of change I mean involves the ability to wake up one day soon and be living life as the person you really >REALLY< want to be. So right here, right up front, I’m going to share a secret with you. It’s my number one secret – the one that was the hardest for me to learn.

My #1 Secret

The real secret of personal change doesn’t come down to some special, hidden technique. Nope, the world is full of techniques. You’ve probably already studied some of them yourself. How many of the following do you have some passing familiarity with?

• Meditation
• Hypnosis
• Body work
• Reiki
• Channeling
• Guided visualizations
• Quantum healing
• Chi Gung
• Crystals
• And hundreds more

The truth is, every one of these methods is producing real, lasting change for somebody right now. They all – without exception – work sometimes. And yet, have you ever had the feeling that “Yes, I believe this stuff really works… so why doesn’t it work for me”?

If you’ve tried one (or more) techniques and come away not quite satisfied, then perhaps you’re ready for my #1 Secret. And here it is:

Change is directly dependent on the decision to change
… and very little else …

Real Decision … that is, a mental action that leads directly to physical results. But we tend to get distracted by unimportant things like techniques, methods and protocols, all of which are pretty much interchangeable. Myself, I tend to favor approaches that center around hypnosis and NLP because, after decades of study, that’s what I’m most familiar with. But that’s not the only way because there is no “One True Way” to anything in life.

By the way, the corollary to the above rule is:
If there has been no change, there has been
no real decision to change

We’re all familiar with false decisions… the kind that don’t lead to change.  Take new year’s resolutions for example. Or think of the last time you said, “That’s it! I’m definitely going to quit [smoking… eating chocolate… biting my nails… whatever…]”

You’re getting no results? Then you’re making no real decisions. So there it is. Simple. Honest. Slightly Confrontational.  But if we can accept that one (possibly distasteful) idea, then we’ve already taken one small but important step, and we’re on our way to making real, substantive changes in areas that count.

Now, this is not the old, sneaky dodge that says, “first you’ve got to believe before it’ll work.” Absolutely not. Instead, I’m telling you to be realistic and judge the methods you’re using by the results they’re producing. Wrong results means you’re using methods that are wrong for you right now.

So as you look around this website, keep that one idea in the back of your mind, that…

learning how to make solid, unshakable decisions
is the key to changing anything in your world.

And helping you master the art of making world-changing decisions is my sole purpose here.

In these pages you’ll occasionally find a few products recommended. Some are mine, some are produced by others. But I have, in every case, tested and poked and prodded and examined each one for effectiveness. If a product or method or system doesn’t work exactly as promised, you won’t ever see it here. Period.

Also, in the spirit of full disclosure, I should also mention that this website makes a profit for me. If you decide to purchase a product due to one of my recommendations, I’ll probably receive a commission from the sale. And for that I’d like to thank you, because it ends up being a good, honest exchange of value for value.

Now keep reading. You’ll be glad you did.

All the best from sunny Japan,
Charles Burke
