The 3 layers of GRIP are the basis on which Grip Work Gear is built on. Like building a powerful Empire, you must use strategy, technique, and resources effectively to put together a machine that will flourish and withstand the test of time. Luckily for us, we have been gifted with such a machine known as the human body, that which has yet to be rivaled by anything here on Earth. In fact, human beings have 2 very special and unique things about them. We are biological computers that act as vehicles for the soul. But does this really make us that special? Yes and no.
Are we any different than the plants and animals that inhabit the world? In a lot of ways we are no different than the billions of other species and organisms that exist on land, in the air, or underneath the deep blue waters. Like humans they breathe, eat, drink, feel, think, communicate, and adapt. They move and transform. They even evolve. The difference really only lies in our power, which far exceeds that of any other creature. We have the power to dominate as well as empower all that inhabit the ecosystem. Our minds act as instant evolutionary processors. While the physical body may take millennia to naturally adapt to its environment, the human brain will immediately transform, allowing humans to create instruments that will enhance our physical limitations as well as reprogram our biological constructs. What other living organism do you know that can do that?
We are biological computers that act as vehicles for the soul and I'm sorry to say but when I think of what the soul could be, I think of the Transformers. Intelligent, mechanical men whose body’s generate electricity, but their entire existence is based on an energy that exists within the center of their chest known as the spark. Essentially, that is where their soul lies. This is where their thoughts stem from, decisions derive from, and personalities are born from. Yes, they are definitely a product of their environment as well as their own genetic make-up (genetic?), but ultimately we believe their very being is based on this portal of energy being funneled through their core. That is kind of how I see a human beings soul, because honestly none of us know what it really is.
So, we have this soul/spark that seems to power our bodies. Without a body, a soul would just be a ball of energy I would guess, and without a soul the body would just be an empty vessel. It is through this body of ours that the soul can express, experience, and interact with the rest of the universe on a universal atomical plane. Therefore, these meat suits become vehicles that the soul rides in until the system is shutdown, but don’t log out just yet.
We are biological computers that act as vehicles for the soul to travel through space and time. A computer is a device that can be instructed to carry out an arbitrary set of arithmetic or logical operations automatically without constant human interference or monitoring. In other words, we make the decision on what we want the computer to display or download while the built in programming does all the necessary calculations in the background so that the task is completed without us knowing why or how. This is how breathing, digestion and cell division works for our own bodies. Our biological, living body is constantly operating at high speeds without our conscious knowing or direction. We respond to it by eating when we feel hungry, sleeping when we feel tired, and fleeing when we feel threatened. We don't know completely how the body functions and we never had to know. It just does. It’s like how a computer doesn’t know how to explain the process of launching an App on your iPhone, it just responds when you click the button. And now the button is actually just a picture of a button on a screen. I bet you can’t explain how that works.
Times are changing and so is technology. Computers, smartphones and watches are "thinking" faster and "living" longer. Artificial Intelligence it resembling that of human beings a little more every day and the need to buy the next generation of devices is becoming less necessary because we now get our computers upgraded from the software itself. I’m sure you’ve downloaded the new iOS for your phone or OS X El Capitan for your desktop. This concept of maintaining and improving our computers through digital upgrades is being recognized in human beings as well. For some time, people have been bringing attention to the effects of external and internal forces on the human condition. From DNA and gene activation, to nature vs. nurture, to public and self-education, to fitness and nutrition, and even to financial and social stresses. It has been widely proven and accepted that people are not the computers of the 90's. We are not stuck with a fixed program from birth. Our hardware (DNA) may be fixed, but our software (biology) is flexible and more importantly, upgradeable.
Here at Grip Work Gear, we recognize the complexity and potential of the human being. We understand what you are capable of with the right guidance. The same guidance that the founder, Mel Jones, follows every day of his life. As biological computers acting as vehicles for the soul we are essentially real life Transformers, and like Transformers we can become Autobots or Decepticons. Good or bad. Great or mediocre. All based on how we think, operate, and what we do. This is how we came to understand the 3 Layers of human potentiality.
The 3 Layers of GRIP are based on the mind, body, and personal achievement. Like any computer, if the programming is messed up the computer will not function properly no matter how new its parts are. On the other hand, if the wires are crossed or the screen is broken it won't be of much use to you either, whether you have the new update or not. And of course, the whole reason for having the computer in the first place is to do more than have it act as decoration. You want to use it for all of its magnificent functions to achieve some sort of outcome, and the more precise you are in your utilization, the more fulfillment you will get out of successfully accomplishing those goals.
So, what are the 3 Layers of the GRIP exactly? They are the lifetime goals of every human being; Self-Mastery, Optimal Health, and Massive Success. In other words, Powerful Thinking, Powerful Living, and creating a Powerful Lifestyle. These are the desired levels that Grip Work Gear strives to capture because we believe that is what we as souls traveling in these biological computers were meant to do. Maximize our human potential.
As you travel with us you will find that this is not your final destination, but merely a pit stop into a Powerful Motivation Factory bent on building Powerful People who will go out into the world and become a manifestation of what we all dream to be. Rulers over our own destiny.
