“We have far more control in our lives than many embrace. We create or co-create our experiences in life, and each day is a new opportunity to be fully engaged in the present moment. It’s the present moment where glimpses of our potential are revealed and expressed. A living masterpiece is not drawn on a canvas or etched in stone or inked by pen. It’s the pursuit and expression of applied insight and wisdom.”
– Michael Gervais, sport psychologist
In order to do real work, I believe we need to get rid of the distractions i.e. emails, text messages, social media (besides this post lol!), etc; accept that we’re enough and don’t need validation from others; be comfortable with silence; look around and within; and leave white space open so that your most authentic self and full potential can flow out.
Today, the one little thing I’m going to do to honor this is making eye contact with people I talk to and making eye contact into the root of things. I so want to make a connection; I want to be comfortable with this uncomfortable position, for a chance to have deep understanding, gain deep insight, and do deep work.
I tend to distract myself with busyness and other mind-numbing activities because I don’t like the feeling; but I want a breakthrough more than I want comfort.
Hope this equips you today.
