To win the game, you have to be in the game.
Have you suffered the disappointment of not reaching your goals? Sure you have, unless you’ve never tried. Some of you are feeling that way now. I had to kick that stuff out of my head awhile ago. None of us are immune to it but we can all do something about it. Take that feeling and squash it. Yes, squash it. We have that ability to squash it.
Do you know why we let those feeling come upon us? More than likely, that feeling is habit from not knowing how to fight it off and lack of awareness that you have been influenced by NEOOP. What the heck is a NEOOP you may ask? NEOOP is an acronym for negative effects of other people. Here are examples of neoop influence. It’s the jealous smile you get from a person who believes you can’t do something he or she can’t imagine themselves doing it. It’s the comments from well-meaning friends and family who encourage mediocrity from you instead of excellence. It’s the sudden attitude of disinterest from the person who asked you how are things going, and you told him or her you were making great strides. They have a negative attitude toward you because they expected you would be floating downstream with them instead of swimming upstream toward your dreams. Once you become susceptible to the NEOOP, then you become your worst enemy. Your psyche is divided into two halves: the win-half, and the lose-half. For some reason, you are rooting for the lose-half. Stop it! This is not the way to do it. If you stay in that mental state long enough, you’ll end up discouraged, which is a poor mental state to do anything. It’s better to fringing pissed off and tell the world go $#@! itself.
Well if you are there, I’m here to get you out of it. If you are not, then don’t go there. That’s what synergy is all about. It’s about aligning you and all your skills and strategies in one direction to have harmony and success. It would be nice to have harmony and cooperation from others all the time too, but that’s not the way it works. Too many people have trivial things on their minds and hang-ups over even smaller stuff. You can’t do anything about what they are hung up on, but you can do something about you. How bad do you want it? Are you willing to go after it until…? Ditch those useless feelings of defeat and disappointment. Get you ass in gear and set your mind on attack! Go after it until you get it. Stop making excuses about the time not being right. I’ve been there before. Do you know what I found out? There is no perfect time or perfect situation for anything, ever. You have to start where you are, with what you have, and you just do it, whatever it is for you. If it’s uncomfortable, fight the feeling and do it anyway. If you fail at it, fight despair and do it again, and again, and again. Let your frustration and your pain drive you to fight back, not roll over, tuck your tail between your legs, and wet on yourself. We create our opportunities and have to work with what we have and where we are. Don’t forget that. I encourage you to get up and get on with it. You won’t live forever. All you have is now. Don’t put yourself down; pump yourself up and get after it.
