I don’t know if you’ve got kids…
Yes or no, it’s kind of irrelevant.
But the comment I heard this morning, at Barney’s rugby training, was not…
A throwaway remark, most would miss, but for men like you or I, never more instructive words have ever been spoken.
“I’m NOT a morning person…”
Five words muttered by one mum, as she relived the horror of having to get up for 9am – after 12 months of being locked-up and locked-down.
Now here’s the thing, for the self made man and if history has proved anything, it’s that in my experience, you are ALWAYS what you think.
… Or in other words, if you my friend, think that you are not a morning person – guess what?
You won’t be getting your arse out of bed.
A natural phenomenon that people wiser than me would call a self fulfilling prophecy.
Now it got me thinking…
Because on multiple times this week I’ve said…
“My spelling is shit…”
“My handwriting is terrible…”
“And my back is goosed…”
… The kind of arsehole thinking and self fulfilling prophecies that once spoke will almost certainly become fact.
Anyway, back to this morning, and back the touchline at rugby.
Because Needless to say, I chose not to pull this particular woman aside and talk her through the intricacies of this principle and these prophecies.
I suspect my time would have been wasted and my mantra for protecting the mind, mocked..
That said, this week, and unlike the mass mediocre majority, you would be wise to take head of the lesson laid bare.
… That means starting to consider today, that there is no doubt, that whatever you think about yourself (good or bad), it will always be 100% true, AND always be self fulfilled.
So best start thinking good.
It comes back to One Man Empire Iron Law #4:
“Never Think Like An Arsehole.”
