Unexpected joy from being sober

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park, hiking to Ptarmigan Tunnel, and looking back where i had been.

Unexpected joy from being sober.

Sober people at a party or event are stereotyped as boring, stiff, serious.

The real stereotype is this: focused, disciplined, fun, spontaneous, in control, uninhibited, confident, creative, strong.

No competitive artist in any genre ever performs spectacularly when drinking.

None.

Strength, confidence, excitement = sober.

Professors vs practitioners

Mickey Mouse toy and jeff noel saying
Texted this to a CEO client yesterday. Additionally, it’s how i feel about gurus. i watch how gurus live their life, not what they preach.

Professors vs practitioners.

What’s the difference?

One makes a living off of theories.

One makes a living by doing the work, without any theories.

Be careful who you follow and listen to.

You should be the most positive person you know.

If you aren’t, chances are you are spending too much time with professors.

Attitude Church

Seth Godin  book
Cheryl brought home some books from her Disney office. This one is eye-catching. It’s always our turn.

Attitude Church.

Church holds both positive and negative stereotypes.

Take anything in life and you have the same like-dislike paradox.

You must find your own path for whether you invest in, or shun, a positive mental attitude.

At the end of the day, how you see things is how they are.

This will strengthen you or weaken you.

Which do you see?

They ain’t the same

Disney never gets old for our household.

A positive attitude helps us slay can’t vs won’t.

Can’t and won’t are not the same things.

There was a time in life when we thought they were the same.

But then we discovered they are simply two choices at opposites ends of a spectrum.

Let’s take a positive attitude.

Who’s the most positive person you know?

It’s a trick question.

The question asks “who you know”, not “in the world”.

Your answer should be yourself, you.

You are the most positive person you know.

If you agree with this, congrats.

If you disagree, why?

And can’t you or won’t you make the changes to get the answer you deserve?

Growth mindset

Walking to gym yesterday. So easy to overlook on the brick wall. A tiny cocoon. Growth mindset is easy to overlook too.
Because i was delayed in returning home, texted a quick photo pictured here to let our son know where i was and why.

Can you explain the growth mindset to anyone?

Do you know how to apply it to your daily life?

Wonderful hour-long conversation with family member yesterday while walking back from the gym, which extended to a tranquil spot on our homeowner’s dock.

Pause and reflect…

That which is most important is hidden because of its simplicity and familiarity.

As my son and i discussed a situation the family member is having now, we can clearly see the best way for two anxious people to move forward – discuss things adult to adult, with an open mind, filled with curiosity, patience, and optimism.

In the phone call i had with the family member there is literally nothing but dread, anxiety, uncertainty, and fear. Apparently with both parties.

My son and i marvel at the paradox and quietly wonder as this is typed if there are personal blind spots that others can easily see.

Also can’t help but wonder if anyone would be kind enough to point them out and help me see them.
