Tap.. tap… tap, tap, tap.
He always does this!!!!
Tap, Tap, Tap,
Alright, I’ll get up now.
I stumble out of bed to see the dog doing his “let me outside dance”,
Bloody laminate floor, why don’t I put carpet down?
That would be no good in the long run, in case he has an accident.
It’s frustrating lately when he does that, not sure why.
Anyway, why am I still ranting about this?
Its 06.30, I’ve slept in again.
I could have been up at 5. I had come out of my 5th cycle of sleep,
I had woken, and felt quite refreshed from sleep, yet I turn into the wife for more cwtches.
It annoys me when I do this.
The morning is the quiet time of the day, where are no distractions or interruptions.
It’s really the only time I get to push my dream forward without beating myself up, for not doing more with the kids.
I’m very self-critical. I am constantly overthinking things.
My life revolves around my family, to the point where I do nothing for me.
I recently did an online Mastermind, with a talented group of guys.
We all had our own struggles.
Some bigger than others, it was great to get the different perspectives on situations.
Clarity will vary rarely appear if you stay inside your own head.
Because you are only looking at the problem/situation with what you already know.
I know I run things over and over. I’m an engineer by trade.
I wonder if my need to not double handle things, drives this behaviour.
Overthinking for me can lead to procrastination and analysis paralysis.
Neither of which are helpful, if you want to get things done.
Since the mastermind I have been consistent with keeping a journal.
Its therapeutic to put things in there that I need clarity or an answer to.
I try to leave the questions fresh in my mind, so they are running through my head before I sleep.
Not in a way that drives you bonkers, just a question, so my unconscious can go to work and help me out.
It works to, through the next day, I’ll get flashes of inspiration, completely random ideas, someone will mention something in a podcast that sheds a bit of clarity.
A friend might mention something, there will be some coincidence, or chance happening.
I believe in synchronicity. I believe the situation or circumstance you find yourself in, no matter how random,
be it what you want or what you don’t, is provided by the universe,
These circumstances are put here to move us forward, help us grow.
I think that’s our job as human beings, to experience emotionally the world of our creation.
To review our reactions, and ascertain whether they are helpful.
Are we being the person we want to be?
Are our habits helping us or hurting us?
The desire to do more and be more.
I know I want to be more, I want to leave a legacy behind, for my children’s children.
I want to leave a legacy that has a massive positive impact on this world.
The only way I am going to do this, is to be the type of person, who gets up to move himself forward,
Who gets up between 04.30 and 5,
To write articles about problems and things I have going on in my own life that may in some way help others gain clarity with theirs.
My eldest son, is 12 now and started playing video games at the age of 6,
My youngest, started at 4, he wanted to play with his brother.
The youngest one in the house, has learned from me, his mother his brother and his sister,
He has seen years’ worth of tactics and tips, quietly passed on, while playing.
I played yesterday with him and his level of ability far exceeds what I would have expected.
The passing on of gaming advice has allowed him to slipstream his learning.
Imagine, if the world was able to harness and share and collaborate,
Not for money, but for the good of mankind.
Imagine the learning environment, our children’s, children could be in.
Imagine where they could be?
Elon Musk wants to die on Mars, though not on impact.
How big, can hopes and dreams be?
Living on another planet is pretty up there,
What is your biggest dream?
What would it bring to the world?
Will your current habits, get you there?
Could you improve anywhere?
