No one says, “when I grow up, I want to be homeless!”
No one says, “when I grow up, I want to be a substance abuser.”
No one says, “when I grow up, I want to be incarcerated.”
Yet…. we see millions and millions suffer this same fate every day. I understand mental health, and I understand substance abuse, and I understand poverty.
I also understand human nature.
The results of our lives are made on the tiny unconscious decisions we make all day long, time after time after time.
We are biological creatures who have a conscious “soul” if you will and the majority of the friction in our lives is between our biological desires and our conscious desires. The need to eat vs the desire to be healthy. The need for social connectivity vs the desire to have good social standing. The need for pleasure vs our desire for love.
If you let your biological needs dictate your life, your conscious desires will be sacrificed. You may give up true love for shallow passions, you may give up security for an easy living, you may alienate loved ones over minor differences.
The flipside is that you could be so logical that you sacrifice feeling, warmth, or physical needs for your conscious desires.
We were given a wonderful brain, able to compute complicated logic yet sensitive enough to appreciate the delicate beauty of a flower. You must use that brain to properly weigh your biological desires, and align them with your conscious goals to find your purpose, power, and perspective in life.
Do not let life “HAPPEN” to you!
Make a conscious decision everyday to follow your goals, to satisfy your biological needs, and to live life on purpose.
It is within that sphere of reality that your goals are in reach.
- Decide what you want TODAY.
- Decide what you want out of life.
- Decide how you respond to what happens to you
- Make conscious decisions about what you say, how you treat others, how you spend your time, who you are.
When you master this you will move closer to your dreams, be more fulfilled in your relationships, and transform your life
