Do It Anyway

This. Many of us are scared right now. Big changes are coming and we’re going through the acceptance and then take action process. 

To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness. – Eckhart Tolle

Many are taking actions. Large or small, doing something with an unknown outcome can be frightening. Fear stops many of us from making changes. After all, it’s more comfortable to be … comfortable…to lay low, to let it pass. Tempting. But unrealistic. 

Doing what is right isn’t always comfortable. Taking action isn’t always brave. It can be downright terrifying. But do it anyway.

Pete Holmes and the Joy Quotient

​If you get a chance, watch Pete Holmes HBO stand up Faces and Sounds.Takeaways:“joy quotient” and love yourself “for what you are doing, not what you could be doing.” 

Be There

The cat is always a good reminder.

Wherever you are, be there totally.

 — Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now


Humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die. … If the structures of the human mind remain unchanged, we will always end up re-creating the same world, the same evils, the same dysfunction. — Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth.

“Rocky Speech: It is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!
