Which LION are you: Courageous or Cowardly?
“A coward dies 1000 deaths, a courageous man only once.” Ernest Hemingway
I was listening to Tony Robbins for morning motivation I heard this gem. What is your focus? What are you saying to yourself? Here’s an interesting analogy. If you saw a bad movie,would you continue to go back to that movie several times even though it made you miserable? Of course we wouldn’t… we wouldn’t waste our money and time on something we know we are not going to enjoy. So why do we agonize ourselves with sabotaging thoughts, causing an uneasy state? Like going to a bad movie over and over again, we have a choice on where to direct our focus and what movie we’re going to play in our heads every moment. Don’t create pain over and over again, feel the emotion once and let it go. Today’s wisdom… stay focused and do your best to stay in the present. If you find yourself fearful and worrying about the future remind yourself to come back to the now. We may not have control over what’s going to happen in two weeks, two months, or even two years, but we do have control over how we react right now. Choose your thoughts wisely, and if you find yourself getting fearful, instead go to a place of gratitude and kick those thoughts out of your head.
