I’d love to open a can of worms which no doubt many people totally don’t agree with.
It’s evident by the fact that people are so quick to comment on the “news” – whatever “news” that be.
It’s because people are consumed with the “news”.
Be it gossip, be it actual TV or radio news, be it social media news.
It’s so beautifully wrapped and sucking you into its glorious web of…
(You thought I was going to say LIES!)
WASTING YOUR TIME.
PULLING YOU OFF TRACK.
Let’s be honest.
Everyone knows all the news is just someone or some news outlet telling their story from their point of view, right or wrong.
And hey, who am I to judge what’s right or wrong!
This is not about right or wrong or deeming what news is fake or not fake.
The simple fact that you are all up in the news is the problem.
Don’t get me wrong.
Yes, I know about the hurting people all over the world, the injustice of it all, the climate change, blah, blah.
WHY AM I SO QUICK TO DISMISS ALL OF IT?
Because it’s pulling you away from what you are here to really do!
Do you want to change the world, transform it in some way, leave your mark?
Do you really want to help others and be a solution to these problems you see?
Do you want to honour your freedom, honour those who came before you to fight for your freedom?
The only way you do that is by stepping into your purpose with confidence, with power, with radical conviction!
And work on it.
FULL STEAM AHEAD.
Not letting some silly billion dollar company prove that they control you by scrolling all your time away or reading endless news articles or watching endless TV.
Do you honestly think YOUR ancestors, the ones that fought to bring you and your family safely to a new life in a new country last decade or decades ago or hundreds of years ago would be rolling over in their grave at you sitting around watching social media and TV all day?
(Yes, my tribute to Remembrance Day! I can only hope that I am consciously using my time in a way that honours my soul and those that went before me to keep my country strong and free – and trust me my lovely – your soul knows when it’s wasting time! #boom)
Okay, so I know my people reading this are more like me preaching to the choir compared to the larger crowd of the peoples in the world.
It’s just a word of caution to myself, to my soul and yours:
Stay in your lane.
The lane that was paved for you by all those that came before you.
You honour your ancestors and those that fought for this by HONOURING YOURSELF.
This is how you also honour those that will come after you.
Honouring yourself does not include commenting on whatever is happening OUTSIDE of YOUR COURT, YOUR FIELD – that’s gossip for the most part.
Don’t buy into clatterfarts.
Clatterfarts (love that word) cost you time & MONEY!
This is a blog about money after all….. why else would I bring up this whole subject!
Anything happening in your life where you are just a spectator, up in the stands watching from afar is not in your court.
Anything happening where you can’t directly converse with the said parties and say it to their face is out of your court.
You can throw out your opinions on politics, on Hollywood, on all the things, but unless it’s playing in your court and you can confront it directly, then it’s out of your court and you shouldn’t be wasting your precious time on it.
Speak up, sure. Write letters to your MLA or MP or whatever you have to do – that’s different – that’s playing the game and not sitting in the stands being a commentator.
Do you get what I’m putting down?
Play your game.
Play it hard.
Play it to the best you can.
But don’t sit around and waste your time and comment on other people’s games.
It’s not going to BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE.
It’s just a distraction pulling you off your game.
Do a time audit on your life. It’s very intriguing.
(Your device also tells you how much screen time you have put in, check it out. I know Apple does this.)
You wanna make money? You wanna make a difference?
Turn off the noise.
Listen to some uplifting music.
Make a sales call.
Give someone a hug.
Write a note or a blog.
Contribute to the positive.
Contribute to fulfilling your purpose here.
That’s how you honour you, the people who’ve come before you and that’s how you….
Live Your Legacy!
