Do you realize how little control we seem to have over our thoughts?
If you’ve ever played a contact sport, such as rugby, you’ll be aware of two mind states: the ball is on the other side, with the fast wingers, and you’re just jogging to keep the line; the opponents defense is solid and the ball starts flowing down towards you – it’s in your hands, and you are AWAKE.
Focused, planning, calculating, committing.
Now, why are we not like this all the time?
You have a report you need to write? If the report threatened to physically tackle you, would you hesitate? I assure you it would be dealt with post haste.
Focus your mind. Control, actively, what you think about. What you set as a target then falls easily to the scythe that your mind has become.
Reject distractions. Imagine walls pushing out from the centre of your mind, sweeping aside clutter and rubbish that stops you from dominating your own life.
YOU control your mind. Your life.
Focus. Plan. Calculate. Commit.
Cross over to the age of enlightenment.
I’ll be waiting.
