Where are you getting educated? Who are you reading? Who are you listening to? Ten years ago you had to actively seek out what to read, listen to, or attend. You probably did this based on having a question you wanted to answer, or a gap in your knowledge or skill that you wanted to fill.
Now most people read whatever’s in their social media feed.
That’s high risk. Filling your brain with other people’s interests, people who may or may not be experts. Allowing Facebook’s algorithm to set the direction of your learning.
Is it time for you to take back control of what you fill up your mind with?
Change isn’t that hard.
Our lives are filled with paths that we have seduced ourselves into believing are impossible for us to take.
A while ago I encouraged my daughter Zara not to listen to a friend who wanted her to do something that she didn’t feel good about.
When we focus on a past that we don’t like, we are living in a state where we are hoping an imaginary future will heal a non-existent past.
Recently I was in a situation that wasn’t what I wanted, but there wasn’t anything I could do to change it.
Is it to never stop believing?
If you fill up every area of your life with little regard for the quality of what you’re filling it with, there’s not much room left.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
