The other day, I just woke up and decided to move to Texas.
As of this writing, it is the 3rd day of my move.
Right now, I feel happy, excited, determined, and glad to be out of NYC.
However, the challenges are coming…
I still don’t have a day job yet. I don’t really know anyone around here. I don’t have any girls out here. I don’t have any mentors around here, Etc.
But that’s OK.
A warrior acts, a fool reacts.
These challenges will test my patience and ability to be creative and resourceful.
Just like in Aikido, I will use the energy of these challenges to turn them on their head. The result will be that I will grow stronger.
I realize that there’s no point in getting stressed out because that doesn’t help me at all.
Stress is just a signal that something needs attention. Once you give that stimulus the proper attention then there’s no point in being stressed out anymore.
Earlier I felt slightly irritable and impatient mostly due to a few days of low sleep. My focus took a hit and I wasn’t feeling like being very productive. I started to feel guilty about not wanting to work. The monkey-mind felt quite active.
Instead of getting into a rut with it, I simply employed a few tactics to deal with it.
I laid down on my bed to just relax for a second and next thing you know I fell asleep for about 2 hours.
After that, I was feeling WAY better.
I sat down and knocked out my business to-do list for the day.
That is what I call destroying the enemy of irritability and sleep-deprivation.
I could have got all reactive and fussy but instead, I dealt with it.
Now I have several job interviews scheduled for the week ahead and can go to sleep feeling satisfied.
Stay strong and govern the mind,
