You can’t know if your going to enjoy an experience until you experience it.
You can’t know
And we talk ourselves out of doing things we think we won’t enjoy, yet we dont truly know we wouldn’t until we tried
Some of my best experiences were doing things I didn’t want to do
Some of my best achievements I almost talked myself out of doing
Why because of some little voice in our heads?
Just try something new
You might love it, you might not
Your head is not an island
Have you ever just thought ‘my head is fucked’
Like thoughts all over the place, stressing for no reason and just being pure negative
Then you start thinking what the hell is wrong with me, why am I like this.
You start blaming the fact that you have a negative mindset and that your head is fucked.
But you fail to notice when your Blaming your head the way your lifestyle has been lately
You’ve not been eating properly, you stopped exercising and your not even walking as much,
You’ve been stressed at work, your not getting meaningful connections out of your relationships because your too distracted
All this adds up
Your head is not an island, everything you do has an effect on how you think and feel, the things you do internally and externally
Your not broken and your head is not fucked everything you do is connected.
Take a step back, have a think about all the things that can be causing these feelings and make a plan to get back to reality
“Can you imagine yourself in 10 years if, instead of avoiding the things you know you should do, you actually did them every single day? That’s powerful.”
Procrastination will kill you faster than a natural death, I know I’m a master procrastinator,
I put off things for weeks/months, I started editing a book and saw a note I left in it that said its Feb 2020 at the time of editing, 8 months later still not done
I could be in a lot better shape, I could be a lot smarter, I might even still be in a relationship if I did the stuff I knew I should.
We need to snap out of this distraction mentality Because it stops us from living.
We need each other
It’s how we got here.
We got here through cooperation as tribes,
Working together to get food, look after the young and staying alive.
Being isolated meant almost certain death.
Today that feeling sticks with us,
If we are lonely our stress levels go up, we perceive more things as threats, we perceive others as threats which can make interactions awkward, it increases the risk of diseases like depression and Copd…
As the uk is pretty much back into lockdown I can’t help but think that the phycolical effects are going to be more disastrous than ‘Covid’ that thing that we may have but have no symptoms…
Meaningful relationships are needed now more than ever,
We’re all connected virtually but physically we’re not.
Reconnect with your tribes, we need them
Your order is on it’s way
I told myself I wasn’t going to buy any more books until I have finished some of my ever growing to be read pile
But when I’m tired like very tired, doing anything takes a lot of effort so I I browse Amazon
And before I know it my book pile is even bigger
Because when I’m tired I lack discipline.
But observing this I can now work out a plan to stop or at least know I’m about to do it and uninstall the app or something.
It pays to know what your triggers are so you can work out a plan to counteract them
