Instead of thinking, “What do I have to DO today?”
Why not ask, “What am I going to ENJOY today?”
Instead of thinking, “What do I have to DO today?”
When your desires match your expectations, your Progress is inevitable.
There are two words that, when combined, will actively destroy your conscious creations.
How to respond when someone has a problem with your Self-Authorized lifestyle.
So, when you were playing the music and also, when you talked about turning into where you want to go, right? So, I don’t have any fear of playing wrong notes or not going with the turn, but there’s that moment when you feel like, but there’s so many songs to learn. But there’s so many places I want to go. No doubt. So,how do you get the clarity of which one to follow, I guess?
That’s a great question. The overwhelm of opportunity is a weird thing. You could be anywhere, you could do anything.
My experience has been that sitting or standing, staying, oh neat… Hmm, the experience of being in one spot, and thinking about all the potential places is actually paralyzing. Where as the experience of saying, “There’s all these places,
I’m going to pick one.” There’s something I do with clients now is we roll the dice and that first roll will be a continent. One is North America, two is South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, New Zealand, Australia, et cetera. We haven’t done Antarctica yet. They roll one and that’s a continent. They roll two and that’s the country. They roll three and that’s the city, and then I pick the best hotel in that city, and that’s where we do our private day.
Easy solution, no more opportunity overwhelm. Let’s go there, but why not do that for yourself? And not about travel, but why not do that about business? Why not do that about your social life? Why not do that, why not just pick one, because in the act of choosing, and then eliminating all the other ones for now, which you actually get to create is this beautiful gift of momentum.
And now you went from sitting to moving, and once you’re moving, it’s just so easy to shift and move to the next place. Now it feels weird when you’re sitting, but once you start moving, it’s so easy to pick the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing.
So, I would invite you to pick one thing out of all of these, and make it a reality. To practice your manifestation muscles. Law of attraction and the law of traction and you dig in and you do it, you make it happen. Because from there comes confidence, and then all of the other ones stop seeming so impossible, and they start to seem inevitable.
You can choose to feel guilty simply for being human… or you can embrace your power to change this world for the better.
Put the phone away. Turn off the computer. Get up, start moving and go engage with your life!
Hey, it’s Jesse here, and right now you’re scrolling, you’re searching, you’re watching this video. And, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that the reason you’re doing that is because you don’t have a project right now that has you absolutely enchanted.
Something that you’re completely connected to, that you’d rather be doing that than anything else in the world. I don’t think that that’s what’s going on for you, because, you and I are here having this conversation. So, why? Why are you scrolling instead of being productive, enjoying yourself, getting off of this social media platform. Why are you here instead of doing something else?
That’s a legitimate question. Now, I might not be able to hear your exact answer right now, but think about it. Why are you here, watching this video, instead of out in your life, doing the things that actually make a difference for you? Is it because you don’t know what to do?
I’m gonna challenge you a little bit on that. I think we always know what to do. I mean, if we tell ourselves the truth, we always know what is the best next step that we can take. And, I don’t know what it is for you right now, but you do. You know what the next thing is that you could do, that would make you feel a little bit better. That would make you feel a little more productive, a little bit more focused, a little bit happier, a little more peaceful, a little more confident, more powerful.
C’mon, these are the feelings of life that we’re all going for. Scrolling through social media, looking for videos to distract yourself, or try and motivate yourself. Well, maybe this is the video, maybe this is the one you’ve been scrolling for. And, maybe this video is the one to remind you that you have a life, that is your personal property.
And that every day is an opportunity to make that property more valuable. That property, called your life, can appreciate. In other words, it can increase in value. All you have to do is just get in gear. So, if you’ve been telling yourself, “I don’t know what to do,” this is the video to remind you that you do know.
Deep down inside, you always know what to do. So, why not take some responsibility? Why not lean into a little bit more action? Why not, right after this video, put your phone away, turn off your computer, get up, walk away, go do something, go engage with your life. It’s that simple. I’m gonna do the same thing myself. I’m gonna get out of this video, and go do something. You do it too.
That’s how life begins to expand even more. And that’s how we get to have a life that is something that we are really, really enchanted by.
A message for those in pain.
The failure to understand the difference between pain and suffering is the cause of more silent misery worldwide for human beings everywhere, than just about anything else.
The reality is that most people don’t even allow themselves to tell the truth about whatever pain they might be in. And we live in a world today that is completely dedicated to the avoidance and distraction and sedation when it comes to pain and discomfort.
So you ask the average person, hey how are you doing? They go, “I’m fine.” But are you really?
So this message is for that rare person who has actually begun to tell themself the truth, that things maybe are not as good as you thought that they once were.
Or maybe things are not as good as you’d like them to be and you’ve begun to feel that uneasiness, you’ve begun to feel that pain but then what do you do with it?
We live in a culture that is wired to ignore pain. So one of the skills that we have to develop is understanding the massive difference between pain and suffering. These two could not be further apart.
Pain is simply feedback. It’s simply a signal that you get in your body, in your mind, it’s a signal that you begin to feel, a set of sensations that doesn’t have any meaning by itself and yet if we’re not careful, it’s easy to assume that this signal of pain is just something you have to accept.
This is just something you have to put up with. This is just how life is and then you start to connect with other people that are also experiencing this sensation, this feedback called pain.
And then what do people do? They normalize it. They say, “Well this is just how it is.” And you start hearing things like, “Well, it is what it is.”
Look, nobody who was really living a fulfilled life uses that phrase, it is what it is.
Your understanding of pain and the difference between pain and suffering is a fundamental skill that you must develop. Pain is just feedback. It’s just a sensation. It’s just information for you to do something with.
But suffering, suffering is completely optional. There is no reason on this planet why you must continue to suffer. Suffering, no matter how many times it’s been glorified and honored and no matter how many tributes and monuments humans build to those that have suffered, that doesn’t mean that it’s right. That doesn’t mean that it’s necessary.
In fact, suffering serves no purpose because it’s totally different than pain. Pain is just feedback. That serves an amazing purpose to get you present so you do something different to change the situation to get out of pain, ’cause when you’re in pain, and you pretend everything’s just fine, when that quiet voice inside of you is screaming at you, saying, “This isn’t working.”, is when you say, “Shut up!”, ’cause you don’t want to deal with it.
Look, I get it. I know it takes courage to face your pain. It takes courage to feel your pain. But that’s pain’s purpose.
Pain’s purpose is to get you present and once you become present to your pain, new awarenesses start to bloom and blossom.
You begin to have new insights. You become aware of choices that you didn’t know you had. You begin seeking solutions and alternatives. You begin to research different ways of improving your situation.
Now this pain has a purpose. Now you’re not in suffering because you’re making progress. You’re expanding and you may not know what’s next and that might be scary.
It might be terrifying to know that what is happening isn’t working anymore. But you don’t know what to do next.
And this might be happening in your physical body. It might be happening in your job or in your business. And it might be happening in a personal relationship.
But my message here for you is that you don’t have to suffer. Suffering is optional.
And I know that it hurts sometimes. It might hurt a lot. But that hurt, that pain, is a gift.
It’s only here to get you present, so instead of distracting yourself, instead of lying to yourself, instead of saying it’s not that bad, instead of beating yourself up because you are where you are, why not just take responsibility and allow that pain to become a teacher. Allow that pain to become a catalyst. Allow that feedback and that signal to motivate you to do something different.
This is when suffering ends. And you don’t have to suffer. The purpose of life is not suffering. There are no prizes for the person who suffers the most, not in the real world, not in the natural world.
So stop suffering. Embrace whatever feedback you’re getting, even if it’s painful, because that’s the moment the pain begins to go away.
That’s the moment your entire life begins to shift because you’ve taken back control of your own powers of choice.
