Everything you have ever seen, heard, read, watched, played or clicked is stored in your vast memory. You are an unique collection of self-filtered information constantly updating via your values and your genetics. Positive, negative, caring, violent, inspirational or just plain lazy actions, inactions and reactions are the daily results. If you are not getting what you want it is because your vast collection of wisdom needs a better self-filtering warrior. Taking control of your information gateway is the key to success and it all starts now.
Get into the habit of consistently choosing better. Which news stories did you click this morning? Did you hear a song that made you dance? Did you laugh at a joke? These simple questions should have positive YES answers each and every day. Instead we meekly choose the easiest options put in front of us. We are bombarded with comparative negativity, pathetic advertisements and extremely low quality entertainment. But it can also your choice not to click on something. You instantly know when something provides zero value so just turn it off.
Intentionally search out images, articles and videos which positively and specifically relate to your desired future. Read biographies of your heroes. Watch films with inspiring storylines. Listen to music which motivates positive action. Collect images of where you want to go. Everything of value can be used to create your own library of momentum.
Zoning out is not an option if you really want to go for it. Don’t waste your energy playing video games just to pass the time. Do not believe for second that repeated exposure to violence does not desensitise your responses or increase your tolerance for violence. Who did what in some TV reality show does not matter on race day. If you are looking simply to have a release or recharge – know that there are much better choices than that all that trash. If you continue putting garbage in your brain you will continue having garbage coming out. Do you want to have what it takes to pull through at crunch time?
Make a choice to start putting good stuff inside. Do NOT wait for tomorrow! Before you go to sleep tonight find an image or quote that represents your goal. Read why your hero started his/her journey. Who were the heroes of your hero? Find a memento of the last time you had an excellent performance or training session. Research a new piece of new equipment to learn how it can help you succeed. Whatever it is, start recording this positive goal related stuff in a journal or on your blog to prove to yourself how much you really want success.
You must make daily efforts to enrich your wisdom and add value to your life. You will be challenged again and again both on and off the playing field. Give your warrior self a fighting chance by filling your mind with quality information. Make yourself strong from the inside out.
