Hello again readers!
I wanted to discuss something rather important to me…and what better place to do so than a blog? [Hehe]
A mixture of things sparked my need for sharing this with you all. One, a friend of mine was sharing a movie with me that blew my mind. Not sure if you’ve heard of it, but it’s from the 60’s…part two came out in the 90’s. It’s called “To Sir, With Love” it carried a powerful message. From the title alone I thought it was a love movie…not really a big fan of those [HaHa]! The other thing that helped produce my need to blog about this was another discussion I had with a loved one.
Did you know, that how you think, or rather…what you believe, affects your inner and exterior? Some may get the hang of what I’m talking about already but for the percentage still waiting for me to get to the “point”, here it goes [LOL]. There is nothing worse within someones character, than a bad attitude. Whether it’s directed at school, work, family, friends, hobbies, LIFE in general…it’s just a burden on everything around you including yourself. You ever ask yourself “why me”? I hear that more than enough. For example, if you’re consistently dating a bad person who has nothing to offer you but everything to gain from being in your company…then you have to start asking yourself, what are you doing to attract these negative people? You can’t blame your boss…or your parents…or that annoying guy on the bus [lol], you have to look within. Same goes for the people who only give everything they do 50% of what they’re REALLY capable of accomplishing. I think the sooner we as individuals address our most deepest of wounds, concerns, and agony…we can then become a better of people. For ourselves especially, but most importantly the ones around us. I personally cannot stand negative thinkers, who feed off of everything wrong as a coping mechanism only suppressing the real and in depth issues. Love yourself first before you can offer such things to anyone else. We’ve all been dealt a deal of cards in life and some may have never been shown the proper way to address that. Self respect, class, modesty, honesty, loyalty, strength, wisdom, humility, pride, ethics…are all things as PEOPLE we should strive to achieve. We cannot continue to use the “passing judgement” card anymore. It’s only a diversion from finding “self”. Know self, in and out, in and out. Given you’ve sought after all opportunities with a clear and educated mind, only then can you make a clear perception of where you want to be in life.
How do you achieve such a thing Jumblez?
Simple. Take out some well needed time to figure you out. Anything that will not help you grow and expand is another that needs to be removed. If you’re used to only doing one thing the SAME thing every weekend…mold yourself to try something new and something different, with SOMEONE different. Feeling down? Take a few moments to jot down 5 great things that you love about yourself (in a non narcissistic way haha). Make amends with those you’re spending way too much energy hating on. Want what the next ones got? Don’t reach for it, GRAB IT!
Not from them, but from this big world just handing it waiting for you to seek it. Don’t sulk, don’t moan, don’t bicker, don’t should’ve could’ve would’ve but didn’t…dig, explore, and find what’s in you that brings fourth negative energy and flip it. Focus on how to be a better YOU. Surely, the rest will follow. If you’re broken, shame on you to expect a man or woman to fix it. There’s nothing wrong with a little help, but sitting on your hands looking around for the next one to “save” you is a shame and is only meant for the weak. Find methods for the strong and long lasting. I speak from a place of experience, love, and the best of intentions as I do with everything in my life. It’s time to breed thinkers again, to re connect with our inner being. Bring that to the table. As they say in SFI,
“Your attitude determines your altitude in your life, so make sure it’s positive! And don’t let the negative attitudes of others (even if they’re family members, friends, or peers) influence you.”
Apply this very attitude to your business, your careers…what ever they may be. To your loved ones, do you know how many people reside on this very planet with us? I’m known for assisting people, an elderly man blind in one eye and had cataract in his other eye…needed help getting onto the bus. Do you know how many people backed away from him based on his appearance and attire? I was so ashamed. All of these grown men and women ignoring this guy clearly asking for help, had a cane and all and you know what he did? Attempted to get on the bus! I was only about 16 at the time and knew better. I stopped to help him on the bus without a thought to hesitate. He thanked me profusely, all the while I just wanted to be a contribution to an easier day for him, or anyone for that matter. I hope I haven’t talked up a storm here :), but my intentions are good and I mean well. If you’re still here and made it through my lengthy blog I applaud you for wanting to learn something new today, and for doing something new today 🙂 Help someone else today, find that inner them that only produces something use able and something that contributes.
