Getting Out of a Rut
Escaping a Pattern or Rut
You should be willing to do something drastic or crazy if you must escape a pattern or rut. Sometimes that involves cutting people off. Kicking people out of your life. Whether it’s a friend, family member or a romantic interest. Sometimes it involves changing your surroundings in a literal sense, in the physical sense, whether it’s taking a vacation, taking a holiday, moving to a new neighborhood, hanging out with different people. But sometimes you have to do something drastic that drives massive action. Sometimes you have to change environment to change your thinking. But what you cannot do is keep trying the same activities, hoping for different outcomes. When you have a goal, that means you’re seeking an outcome you currently don’t have in hand, so why would the behaviors you exhibited in the past lead you to a situation you’ve never had. They won’t. You have to do something different to get something extraordinary. You have to do something extraordinary. You have to let go of fear, of being embarrassed. Let go of fear, of people staring at you and thinking you’re weird and thinking you’re different. Not encouraging you to be weird, but certainly you would be different to be a high achiever. Cause most people are losers at heart. In fact, I even secretly think that they want to lose even when they say they want to win, they don’t really wanna win. But you have to be obsessed about it. You have to dream about it and think about it and act about it and obsess about it and read about it and write about it. Your goals are something that you have to keep coming back to has to be top of mind all of the time. Same talk give you some time to sending your thoughts, questions, comments as we wind down.
Don’t worry about being down bad financially. I can promise you it ’won’t happen again and your finances may do this. Hopefully it does this you know it fluctuates but it’s on the uptrend. But one thing I want you all to know is that spirituality, meditation, prayer, peace, happiness, that is a choice. And that choice has nothing to do with your bank account.
I can smile no matter how much money I do or don’t have. And that is what life is about as being happy. There are a lot of people who have money and are not happy. Yesterday, I was out at a restaurant and a couple comes over, older white couple comes over and the woman says, “Hey, I just wanted to share a story with you.”
I was a little bit suspicious. I don’t know these people.
“We know who you are because you were here earlier today. And we were talking with a guy and he said, you know, there was this black, young man who came in, he was wearing a red velvet shirt and he was just the nicest, most down to Earth guy. And he, he’s a very wealthy guy. You would just never know it to talk to him, so down to Earth and nice. And I didn’t expect it.”
She continues, “You usually don’t expect people to behave this way when they have money. And I just wanted to share that story with you. That people were speaking well of you in your absence. And I knew it was you because you’re wearing a red velvet shirt.”
It was really nice to hear and I appreciate that. I always think back to one of my mentors who’s very wealthy man, but he’s very unpleasant, man, I remember. met him, people were warning me about his attitude. And I always want wealth to look good on me. And even without wealth, I wanna be a positive person and a happy person.
