I think, I thinks too much. Thinking and knowing are two different things entirely. Just like knowing and believing are different too. Would you agree? I had an opportunity (audition) last week, and I didn’t think I did a good job during the meeting, even after the casting director said, “I’ll call you back tomorrow.” I thought, “Really, why?”
She believed she could, so she did. What do you believe about you? How are you at remembering? Your childhood, past relationships, mistakes, laughter, lines, etc.? Roles and scripts…maybe you’re acting, and you don’t even know it. We all are to some point, it’s how we navigate in this world (script). Us and them, conversational questions that aren’t real questions, how are you? Your line is, ‘good.’
We’ve all lost our two front teeth, and then, we got new ones! So, we won that war! And we’ll all face two front battles in life: interior (ourselves/mind) and exterior (other people/life). Go with me here…
“Climbing mount everest is not a straight up the mountain climb.”
– Woman Mountain Climber & Speaker (2011 Chick-Fil-A Leadercast Conference)
I wish I remembered her name. This was news to me. I always thought climbing Mount Everest was up, up, and up. It’s not. It’s up, then down, then up, then down, then further up, and then all the way back down, and continue this pattern until the top…like what?! Why?!
Your body has to get use to the changes and the pressure.
How do you deal with pain or disappointment? This is important. I don’t remember at school or at home anyone really sitting down and telling me, things in life will hurt, this is how you deal? I was told that I’m strong, that I’ll be alright, and I’ll have another chance.
Maybe that’s why playing sports or board games when we’re children is so important, there’s winning, losing, teamwork, communication, work ethic, progression, etc. But even in playing these games there are still ungraceful winners and sore losers. There’s pain and disappointment, because there’s hope and care. So how do you deal?
