And eventually become sick of it…figuratively and physically.
What do you do????
As a coach, I often have the answers for others, but sometimes not for myself. But knowing myself, I have to constantly remind myself, and remind myself to remind myself again , and again (lol). This is a mindful activity that some people do, but many of us don’t actually have that ability as it is not a part of how we operate, and trust me it is not a skill. However, we can still enhance it.
When you get tired of what ever “IT” is, take this moment as an opportunity to reevaluate, readjust, redo. MEDITATE! or do whatever it is that helps you reconnect with yourself. I had to find what works for me, and sometimes it is more than one thing, however, the idea is to rid the negative distractions, and to become more at peace.
THINK about it. How can you receive anything, if you’re not open? How can you see with your eyes closed? We do a lot of things to distract ourselves, and continue the habit of the distraction, and yet never quite stop, sometimes not even pause for a moment. We just go and go and go……… next? It is a never ending cycle, and then we wonder why things aren’t progressing as they should. We are evolving in a lot of different ways, but maybe we need to evolve more internally. We are so fast to get somewhere, then before you know it, we aren’t really getting anywhere. We’re just spinning the wheels.
This is why it is important to STOP! Breathe! Listen! and Trust!
STOP the negativity, by stopping what you are doing. Even when you entertain the negative, you are just as bad as the negative. Stop it. When you complain about someone else’s complaint, belief, lack of, gain, etc. You are just like them…. You ever think about the crazy stuff going on in the world, and see or hear others going back and forth about the rights and wrongs, but none of it is to remedy the actual problem itself. This means that we are the problem!
Breathe. Know that what we cannot control is out of our control for a reason. It can be difficult to accept that, but once you do, you set yourself free to focus on what you can control. Like YOUrself. Some people tend to have control issues, wanting to manipulate situations, or others, because it makes them feel superior. But what better satisfaction than to have complete control over yourself and your life. Are you really in control? Don’t give that power to the distraction(s).
Listen. Because a lot of us just talk, and talk, and talk, sometimes about NOTHING! And it is annoying. How can one learn if they talk more than listen? All of us don’t have the answers, but we can all answer questions together. We can all come to a solution, but do we all want to Listen to each other?
Trust. You are tired, mentally, physically, maybe even emotionally, but trust that it means something to you. Think of putting a puzzle together. When you get tired, the universe is trying to tell you something, but you have to find the missing pieces to put them together. This takes time. But this is why it is important to Stop, Breathe, Listen, and Trust. You have to put time into what you want, and sometimes you have to do absolutely nothing to figure it all out.
Life’s like a scavenger hunt,
But….what will you collect along the way?
