Nothing for sale today. We’ll do that tomorrow.
I do want you to read this…because unless you get yourself ready for success in all aspects of your life, nothing I have for sale will make any difference. Same for every other trainer.
I realize the title of this note is bound to get me more clicks than most of my notes get. I’m OK with that.
I had just started a tai chi session at the gym, which is normally a time of dynamic, creative peace. I couldn’t get the usual spot because a Zumba class was going on, so I set up near the stationary bikes, which have a TV set near them.
I opened my eyes after “sinking the Qi” to video of that poor man in South Carolina being shot in the back.
How do we expect to achieve peace and wellness when our media is saturated with pornographic violence and intrusions into the private lives of strangers?
The answer is to be an extremely selective sifter of what you choose to let in. If you take in information by default, you will be programmed to settle for blinding mediocrity.
Now that’s not to say we shouldn’t know what’s going on. There are forces at work that profit from our ignorance. And they do so at our expense. That includes elements of our own government.
But the sources of that knowledge…that’s a whole different ballgame.
I’m not gonna get into where I think you should get your news from. Not interested in the whole liberal vs. conservative thing. There will be plenty of time for that with the next election cycle coming up.
But when someone keeps playing the same tragic video over and over again, it’s a pretty safe bet they aren’t interested in educating you, so much as getting you to give up your own power of discerning real from manipulated.
And if you want to be in charge of your life – that includes your health, your relationships, your business, your career, your spirituality…
You have to choose what you let into your thoughts, your emotions and your behaviors.
You’re in charge of that. Not the media.
Once you take control of what you let in, don’t be surprised to see not just your life get better, but that you influence a bunch of others around you to better life situations as well.
