We’ve talked about…

“What we give is what we get”.

It is something we have all learned in grade school.

If we did D work, we got a D…and if we did A work we got an A.

Why is it that when we grow up, some of us expect an A lifestyle, when we produce D work?

Just take in what’s around us in our life, whatever we “got”, has been what we have “given”.

If we don’t feed something…

It will wither away.

That’s the case with our thoughts and habits that we don’t want.

Changing our thoughts and habits from what we don’t want, and replacing them with what we do want, will be feeding what we want, and starving what we don’t want.

And over time, what we don’t want, will soon cease to be.

The Big Picture

Looking at the “Big Picture” of your life…like where you have come from and more importantly, where you are going is vital.

Paying attention to the Big picture not only helps you stay on track, it keeps you from focusing on the little things that can take and keep your attention off track.

But, sometimes when you have challenges, we need to focus on the small picture which is the right thing to do, at the time, to handle the challenges.

BUT…remember to get back to the Big picture as soon as possible, so you end up where you want to end up.

Whether it be a group, team or family…

Keeping people going in the right direction takes constant steering but should not need rounding up again unless left unattended.

So if you find yourself in a continual round up, you may want to spend less energy rounding up and more energy in attending to the process.

A shock is sometimes good for us?

You betcha…and the only reason it is a shock, is because we weren’t ready for it.
When we are shocked by a situation, event or even a cold shower, it’s just because we are taken by surprise and have a hard time getting our heads, or our body around what just happened.

And getting shocked simply elevates our internal structures and functions to rise to the occasion.
It’s the “fight or flight” reaction of our body – where our autonomic nervous system shifts to meet the demand – the sympathetic nervous system takes over and the parasympathetic nervous system cools down – all to better help us deal with what we didn’t see coming.

So our body rises to the occasion, and so can we, and sometimes a little shock is what we all need to get us out of “idle”.
