Before these thoughts leave my head, I want to share what’s going on. I feel some people benefit from this. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be any point in me opening my mind.
Lately, I’ve been feeling like shit; mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
I’m not sick or anything, I’ve just been losing a lot of sleep. The reasons aren’t as important as the insights it has provided. This may be different for some people, but for me, if I lose sleep, everything else will go to shit.
I know people who can lose sleep and still work and churn out work like a machine — aka, Chris. I cannot do that. If I lose sleep, I feel mentally disabled, spiritually demoralized, emotionally unstable, and physically drained.
That being said, attitude is everything. Mindset is everything. The way you talk to yourself everyday, habitually, is the way you’re creating your reality. I perceive 3 versions of “reality.”
There is your reality. There is other people’s reality. And then, there is reality… the real truth. The cold, unbias, unemotional, unaffected truth. The way things truly are, whether you like them or not.
Keeping this in mind, if you are someone who’s always constantly negative with a bad attitude towards everything in life, you will always find a way to give up, quit, blame others, be frustrated, and look at the unlimited number of obstacles you face before reaching your goal.
If you are a person who has a winning attitude, you will ALWAYS find a way, even if there is no way. You will create the path, even where there is none. You will find a way to overcome, learn, be persistent, persevere, become stronger, rise up from the ashes, focus, and sacrifice, knowing fully well that the pain you suffer is completely temporary.
This is the difference between a doer and non-doer, a winner from a failure, a happy person from a sad person, a survivor from a dead person, and true enlightened, humble spirit from a non-enlightened spirit.
In other words, even though there are 3 realities (yours, others, and the real truth), you, and only you, are constantly creating, manipulating, twisting, bending, and shuffling your reality.
YOU create your reality. YOU are the one responsible for where it goes. YOU choose how to respond to what’s going on. Because of this, mentality, mindset and your consciousness, is everything.
Every thought, action, invention, feeling, appetite, drive, project, song, celebration, cooking recipe, building, end result, etc starts with your thoughts.
Remember this when you feel like complaining about life or others, or talking negatively about life or others. The way you talk to yourself everyday, is the way you’re creating your reality. Choose wisely.
