"If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it." - Mary Engelbreit Quote #18 from Dr. Joe Tichio's book.
Happy New Year for the 13th time! Today's daily dose of Organek Food for Thought combines Think and Grow Rich's chapter on The Six Ghosts of Fear and Mary Engelbreit's quote on either changing things or changing the way you feel about things.
First, let's visit TAGR's "The Six Ghosts of Fear". The Six Ghosts of Fear chapter is really a chapter to show you what fear looks like in all its forms so you can see what you fear. Fear is comprised of the elements of "indecision" and "doubt". The way fear starts out is through indecision. The longer indecision is able to fester the more likely it is to eventually become doubt. If conditions remain that allow indecision to keep festering while doubt is present, FEAR arrives.
In order to get rid of fear, you have to be able to find it. You need to root it out. This whole chapter is on rooting out fear so you can address it and force it to depart from your body and mind. Simple willpower will get that done for you. SIMPLE DOESN'T MEAN EASY. Just as push-up's, sit-up's, eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle is simple, talk to my belly. For me, it isn't that easy.
Watch the video and you'll see that I cover how many alibi's I had two months ago when I started my TAGR marathon vs. how many I have now. You can even hear me vocalize my alibi's. You will also hear me say, "Goodbye." (To one of the alibi's, not me ending the video series, sorry.)
The Quote: "If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it." This is an easier one than the caterpillar/butterfly one I had to do a couple of weeks ago. The President of the United States is a great one to use as an example. For my purposes, let's pretend the President is named Baronald Trobama. I kind of like that and I'm curious to see how the haters on each side deal with this orgy. Anyway, none of us can change the President by complaining about him so just change the way you feel about him. If you hate him that much, take solace and be happy that you don't have to be in his shoes and put up with the hatred he experiences. Imagine his work schedule...you don't have that either. If you think he's a total ass, take comfort in knowing at most he only has 7 more years left, at most. If you think he will be a dictator and eliminate the two term max, be happy you will have an excuse to finally move to Thailand or Costa Rica.
This was a pretty easy mash-up considering I listed out my "alibi's" that are my B.S. excuses as to why I am not where I need to be. I even said, "Goodbye!" to one of them. I'll get the rest tomorrow in some sort of ceremonial fashion. I know you'll enjoy this video as the topics were easy enough to flow through. Thank you for watching and don't forget to comment with the embedded word from the video.
I hope the boredom insurance can make this enjoyable enough that you introduce your clients and family to my daily message.
