So many social and global things bother and puzzle me: terrorism, injustice, control, poverty. We survive in an information age where the negativity and shocking brutality of the world assaults us each time we leave home or hear the news. I catch myself often marinating in fear and despair…and then I correct it.
No body or no thing can control what we think. If we are out there what we think in here, then why oh why would I concentrate on what the media wants us to think?
I am daily reminded to catch my thinking and to replace negative thoughts with positive ones of a positive future. The current climate of terrorism, hate, pay-back and be-headings are atrocious. It makes me want to weep…but so too does inertia, civil impotence and fear. I will not give in to them, because, I have a choice to believe in a better world. Perhaps terrorists are so radical because they really believe in a cause? I believe in a cause too – personal development and NOT terrorist development.
Personal development demands us to make a choice – we can take the well-worn path or we can follow a proven track of overcoming seemingly insurmountable occurrences.
Instead of being herded into fear and hate (a metaphorical beheading), I herd myself into positive thinking. I concentrate on that which is my purpose, my goal and my aim in life: to educate others to self educate in motivation, personal development and growth.
I reach for books that instill me with goodness and pop on a CD that reminds me there are good and caring people in the world.
While I am reading or listening to good stuff, bad stuff cannot rent space in my head.
I urge you to change the world into a better place by first changing your thinking; your concentrating; your cognitive marinade.
Personal Development is the opposite of Terrorist Development. Do not allow domestic terrorism to behead you – instead use your head to create a better world.
