Tiredness comes from compulsively doing those things that are destroying your health and well-being. The person who is unable to separate himself from his compulsive tendencies is enslaved by his interior conditioning; conditioning that causes him to mechanically react to his exterior life. His life ebbs and flows with every passing weather pattern, or every time the stock market falls or rises, or with every report of good news or bad news that comes with the evening news. And so, he feels exhausted at the end of each day, not knowing that there is an entirely new way.
Yes, there is a new way of living. You don’t have to talk on incessantly when you have nothing to say. You don’t have to feel anxious when someone shows up that you think you have to impress. You don’t have to appear super successful or really intelligent for any reason whatsoever. The next five blogs are going to help you destroy the compulsions that are destroying you. The secret to living a successful, happy life is to notice what you are doing to YOURSELF that stops you from living incredibly.
Destroy What’s Destroying You – Tip # 1:
Walt Whitman said, “You have slumbered upon yourself too long.” Walt was pointing to the fact that you have neglected to realize that you are God in a Bod when it comes to your world. Your potential is incredible; your talents, immutable. When you feel a compulsive tendency coming on – stop to remind yourself that nothing need disturb you unless you allow it to. Say that again to yourself, “Nothing need disturb me unless I allow it to, and I only allow it to when I slumber upon myself.” Now, take advantage of the next moment and respond in an entirely new way.
Know right now that you always know what to do in any moment. Knowing what to do is not the problem. The problem is that you give yourself over to compulsive tendencies that you took on in youthful moments of fear and pain. Reminding yourself that you are slumbering upon yourself when you yield to compulsive tendencies; this empowers you to see things differently and enables you to respond to the moment differently.
