You Fear the Sabre-tooth

6753809I read somewhere that the brain is wired since the stone age to think negatively so to protect us from the dangers that existed then.

Sabre-tooth as an example.

These days this negative thinking works overtime, stopping us from getting ahead in life.

Because we fear trying something new.

Fear of the Sabre-tooth.

This happens without us even realizing.

Without reading, preferably instructional books, then nothing will contradict that thinking.

You could even try swapping listening to the car radio station or your phone playlist for an audiobook.

The hours you spent while traveling, could be spent sharpening your mind against the Sabre-tooth.

Maybe that’s what you need.

Maybe that’s what need.

A different outlook.

That comes from developing a habit of reading or listening daily to go sh*t.

Replace Your S** t Habits With Good Ones

I kept on seeing and hearing the name Simon Sinek being projected in my head.

Simon Sinek.

As if stuck in the frontal lobe of my brain.

Simon Sinek.

All this, haunting, while trying to sleep.

So here I am, writing about him.

I don’t know much about him.

He was first brought to my attention by a business partner who has a background in medicine.

Google Sinek.

From the little I know of him is that he’s a speaker.

He speaks about most about leadership. On what defines a leader and what drives her. Reasons why they are true leaders. Amongst other things.

He’s available on different social media sites, I also follow him on Twitter and IG.

He’s an author as well, he wrote Start With Why.

And there are lots of videos on the ‘Tube that have he’s talks.

I think there’s a vid of one of his talks I posted in one of my blogs that I thought was awesome.

There’s a bias that comes with being a leader that I want to take advantage of.

The monetary benefits of being paid to solve problems being one of them.

It’s as if followers create problems while leaders get paid to solve them.

So I’ve been listening to some of his audios as well. Him, John Maxwell and Gary Vaynerchuk are the 3 guys I’ve been filling my head with of late.

And Eric Thomas. #TGIM

I guess I can be obsessed with certain things in my life, such as my personal development.

If I don’t invest the time for it, noone else will.

Then I will just be like the rest of them, blaming my job or spouse or community or the government or the gods for my current, undesirable situations.

Not realising that the true problem here is me.

I fix me, all else gets fixed.

It’s an inside job.

What Are the Lyrics to Your Song?

It’s 7:39pm on my way back from work.

I’m in a taxi, with the passenger next to me probably reading what I’m typing here on my cell.

Just realized I need to post something for my WordPress blog.

Not sure what exactly.

But I’m figuring I should update on what’s been on my mind lately.

And that’s been bliss.

In the sense of overcoming the fear of doing what I love.

Instead of being caught up with what the system asks of me to “survive” within the monetary system.

I’ve been reading a lot of Dr. Wayne Dyer’s updates on Facebook.

And he’s all about purpose.

My favorite quote from him is:

“Never die with your music still in you.”

About how the wealthiest piece of land in the planet is the graveyard, with a lot of people dying with their dreams…desires…what they were REALLY good at not having been fulfilled.

So what will happen, if you did?

If you took the steps, step by step, that led you to producing or creating or designing your inner “song?”

Until one day, the world hears your “song,”

What you are really about,

Who you really are?

…Bliss.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

What’s In It For You?

I’ve been telemarketing for the past 9 months.

Wow.

Was shocked to even realized how long I’ve been here.

Guess time passes you by when you get “caught up” in waking up at 4:30am only to get home at around 8:30pm.

Sales driven environment, I’ve seemed to have lost the plot.

Especially when it comes to my self development education.

Applied knowledge is power.

And I’ve just been going through the emotion of late.

Just grateful to have this blog.

Writing centers me.

My true passion…

But why sales then?

Because it’s outside my comfort zone.

Or at least it was.

For an emotional guy like myself, I feel there’s no better way to manage my emotions than doing sales.

People don’t like to be sold to really.

But if you get the hang of the WIIFM paradigm then you should be good.

W – what’s

I – in

I – it

F – for

M – me

Come I get back to it then.

Lunch break almost over.

I love you.

Thank you.

Most Are Temporary Lessons Are Eternal

What I have noticed in life is that if whatever you are focusing now is not making you happy, then some way, some how you pull in more of the things that will make you even more unhappy.

So your current situation is a temporary one…depending on what you focus on.

But sometimes it’s not easy.

Especially when all that you can think about is how shitty things are for you.

So turn your focus to one sole goal of you thinking of that one better feeling thought…

What can you tell yourself or what can you think about that will take your focus away from how bad things are, to how better things can be for you.

Seek for that better feeling thought.

And then another one.

And another one.

Until you become almost indifferent about your current temporary challenges because you are focusing all your attention and actions to improving it.

I love you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

The Art of Letting Go

Sometimes you need to let go.

Ideally this “letting go” process should be an every day thing.

I think it’s because in most cases letting go is part of a healing process.

Especially when holding on is doing more bad than good.

This guy made an example of holding on to a pen.

The tighter the grip and the longer you grip it, the higher the chance of it hurting your hand.

Same goes for everything else.

It’s a scary thought letting go of things you’ve gotten used to making you feel pain.

In theory yes we want to feel pleasure but the fear of loss is greater than the need to gain.

So make it a gradual release.

One inch at a time.

One finger at a time.

One day of a time.

I love you.

Thank you.

What Do You Want?

Writing your goals down is the best way you can fast track yourself into achieving them.

There are other techniques involved including visualization and meditation and affirmation and, most importantly, taking action.

But the very first step is knowing what you want.

Who was it that said it?

Was it Brian Tracy?

Nah I think it was that co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Yes, Mark Victor Hansen…something about writing 100 goals you would wish to do, be or have in your lifetime.

Chances are you’re gonna unintentionally achieve 80% them.

Billy Cox has more to say about this goal achieving strategy on this update.

I love you.

Thank you.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.
