Our attitudes are the base of the iceberg… you need to go deep to find them, appreciate them, and change them. No voodoo method, energies, subliminal, affirmations will every change them… just cover them even more, and push them deeper, into hiding.
How a simple attitude adjustment has made a big difference
I decided, a few weeks ago, to start to take the weekends off… if nothing else, in my mind. It makes a big difference. I still answer emails, and maybe even write an article on Saturday or Sunday.
But the attitude is: I do what I like… it’s my day off… And my favorite things to do are reading, writing, and teaching… so weekends are, now, for the first time in 50 years, for doing what I most like to do… and my experience is that taking time off restores my energy, replenishes my resources… what a difference an attitude adjustment makes… Amazing.
One cardinal issue that many of you may deal with is money.
I could bs around this, but I won’t.
If you have a money issue, that is the first thing you want to handle.
Why? Because when your livelihood is threatened, nothing else matters. Not even your health.
Maslow, a 20th century psychologist set up a pyramid-like hierarchy… and the base of the pyramid is the physical needs… unless your physical needs are met, you won’t be fully available to fulfill other needs.
The second level is safety needs. Until safety needs are met, you are not available to fulfill other needs like emotional needs, or self-actualization needs.
