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.

Habits: They Are Either Making You A Success or A Failure

I read somewhere that “humans are creatures of habit.”

This is evident from the toes I count 5 hours into my evening shift.

Something I told myself I wouldn’t do after going through a bit of Neale Donald Walsch’s “Conversations with God.”

Allowing my working environment to influence me by having negative judgements against it, that is.

By making a judgement on a particular thing, negatively or positively, I am in effect judging myself, negatively or positively.

This is so if I believe in the theory that I am the creator of all the things that I encounter in my life.

It’s like creating a sculptor and saying that “this is a bad sculpture or this sculpture makes me feel drained and depressed”…then it is not the sculpture that is “inadequate” or flawed, but it is the craftsman that is inadequate or flawed.

Now coming back to the period of boredom I encounter 5 hours during my shift…

This is not a true reflection of me.

Musa and boring in the same sentence is not “possible.”

But here I am, at work, counting my toes.

Not literally of course, there’s no need for a strip tease.

I guess a less conscious mind would continue to allow her environment influence her, either than the other way around, with her influencing her environment.

Which was, I have to admit I currently am to some level & working towards the habit of influence, something that I am guilty of during my months prior Sir Richard Branson’s “Screw It, Let’s Do It”

Personal development materials I recommend for you if you seem to be drowning in your own destructive web of thought(s).
