The Only Right Way

The Only Right Way, Is the Way That Helps You Make The Change You Seek – Seth Godin.

It’s overwhelming…

Entering a new game, Trying something new, Making a change

We try and take shortcuts and fast lanes, We google and youtube the best way to this, the fastest way to get ‘…’ how to hack the new algorithm…

These searches and shortcuts normally from experience leave us more overwhelmed, confused and a couple of hours with nothing done but browsing…

The right way is doing, doing what actually reaches your audience, gets you the result you want and over time you see the change you are seeking,

There is no search for that,

It’s trial and error.

Do the work, not the browsing

It’s not ‘meant to be’ – Its meant to be done

It’s not meant to be – Its meant to be done – Jade Teta.

If it’s meant to be its meant to be – (I hate writing this post because my Nan always said that saying)

But,

If you’re sat around waiting for the stars to align waiting for something to happen then you need to get up, stop star gazing and go and do the work.

The work, The work is meant to be done.

Once the work is done then the work needs to be put out there…

And once that has happened then it might be.

You might fail, But if you did the work then you will have learnt some valuable lessons, you can course correct and try again…

That is how we learn and grow, and that’s how we make our stars align…

Not by waiting, By doing.

You Are What You Eat…

You are what you eat…

You feed yourself garbage, eventually, you start to feel like garbage, your energy levels drop and your output is garbage too…

The same is true for the information you feed yourself, The people yourself with, The music, the tv shows, what you read…

All this information is fed into our subconscious…

If you feel negative, lack motivation and have a can’t be arse mentality, Then look at the people you surround yourself with, How do they talk, how do they act,

What are you listening too on the radio and on the tv, is it drama, drama and more drama, same with your reading are you just reading the drama on facebook…

Garbage in – Garbage out

Then why not create the most beautiful story for yourself?

“If you can see yourself as an artist, and you can see that your life is your own creation, then why not create the most beautiful story for yourself?” – Don Miguel Ruiz

As kids we’re free, we draw, we create, we sing and dance… Life is fun…Life is art

But

As social creatures, we are drawn towards tribes and we want the tribe to accept us, so we conform to how the tribe acts, we do as they do because their opinion matters to us.

We start to fear rejection.

So the things we used to do for joy and fun we stop.

We don’t start the things we want to do because,

We fear being laughed at, Not being liked and rejected…

So the art we want remains a thought in our head,

Whilst we conform to the system of the tribe’s beliefs…

Is that the life you want…
:// Side note – Its why it doesn’t bother me when people comment on my grammar, If they commented on it, they read it, which means I did the work and put it out there to be criticized – No art is perfect

Life is like dancing

Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time. – Don Miguel Ruiz

Everything changes,

Getting angry won’t stop that.

Like oh, Mikes pissed off let’s not change the weather today…

It’s not going to happen…

Instead of getting angry, prepare for changes, don’t resist them…

Blockbusters went bust because it resisted Netflix (They had the opportunity to buy it)

They wanted things to stay the same now the only chance of finding a Blockbusters store is in a Marvel movie…

Learn new rhythms…
