We live in a noisy world
Noise everywhere, people arguing,talking, cars and trucks, planes, TV, radio…
Even on social media its just noise, noise, noise…
And this noise drowns out the noise in your head,
No time to think just trying to process all the noise going on
Then you sit down in the evening with a glass of wine or whisky to calm yourself from everything that has demanded your attention before you have to do the process again the next day…
One day you find yourself in an empty room, no TV, no radio,no people and no signal on your phone…
A strange feeling starts to emerge, your mind starts to wonder and you get to think and all these wonderful thoughts and ideas start to emerge…
Thats the wonders and the beauty of nothingness
Seek out some quite time in a world full of noise
Let your mind show you that it still has a voice
Watch what you can create from nothing
Put the wrong fuel in your car and it’s not going to work.
We know this and we are careful not to do it as we know the costs of repair are high and we risk permanently damaging the car…
Yet every day, we put the wrong fuel in our –
Mind and Body
Everyday (Excluding you health nuts of course)
WE feed our brains advertisements, toxic news, gossip, negativity (Most likely from the news)
We feed our bodies poison and junk
And we wonder why we are run down and stressed…
The cost of getting your car fixed is one thing…
The cost of fueling your body is far far more expensive.
Fuel Up Properly.
Who fact checks the fact checkers?
We live in a world where your post, video, blog or whatever can be removed for breaching guideline
Where if you post something that goes against an agenda they will label it as fake news.
But who are they and where have they got their facts from?
If something true gets posted and is branded false, the chances are people are going to believe its false.
Then it comes down to another form of manipulation and control and in aid of stopping misinformation, they are promoting misinformation (but to benefit an agenda.)
So the job comes down to me and you to do an already hard task at figuring out what is true or not and not believing everything we see and read at face value.
That old saying –
Those who control the media, control the people (or something along those lines)
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
Evil is Whatever DistractsFranz Kafka
I happened to stumble upon that quote whilst being distracted.
Distractions do nothing but take away time from doing something meaningful and take away time from our life as a direct result of that.
Distractions don’t allow us to get any Deep Work accomplished as Cal Newport would say, and what we’re left with is half-arsed work that doesn’t match our true potential.
Distraction don’t challenge our minds they just merely keep them entertained so we don’t have to do too much thinking.
Distractions are evil because they drain our life ever so slowly we don’t even realise it until its too late
