A new year is upon us.
Once again America will experience “change”. Let us “hope” this proposition will be a positive one. At a bare minimum the addition by subtraction model will reward these United States as the removal of Obama will immediately pay dividends to the spirit and the soul to those who have both spirit and a soul.
The addition by subtraction model is always a favorite at the beginning of a new year as well.
Subtraction of weight, alcohol usage, and debt are just three things that having less of increases happiness in many cases.
Of course the removal of all liberals from our lives might be an even healthier option although I guess that could also be construed as the repeat of the removal of weight.
Dead weight that is.
Many will make resolutions to clean out closets, garages, or storage units with hopefully positive outcomes.
The concept I would like to discuss today is the removal of all the “noise”.
While we organize, adjust, and feng sui our surroundings we are forgetting our most important asset.
The human body is a collection of electrical currents that is regulated by numerous things including our glands (thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary) and muscles.
Muscles actually have “memories” allowing for positive and negative communication throughout the body.
For this column positive and negative will be used specifically as actions that either release endorphins or release adrenaline.
For anyone who likes to exercise at certain levels or has engaged in certain lengths of laughter an endorphin “high” is very common.
Adrenaline on the other hand releases into the body when a “fight or flight” moment arises. Again for anyone who has experienced an adrenaline “dump” they know full well how the body responds (freezes) when it isn’t dispensed.
I personally have experienced both the release of endorphins and the release of adrenaline at different times through simply the power of thought.
Many won’t realize it but anyone reading this column has too.
The noise created in the media is nothing compared to the noise we create in our own minds on a second to second basis.
We even do this in our sleep through dreams.
There is an idea called Minimalism that has been around for a long time. The concept is the removal of unwanted things that are clogging up our lives.
Rather than attempting to minimize our minds by trying to figure out what to remove let us maximize our minds and focus on very specific things that benefit our lives, the lives of others, and the culture of Freedom.
In business, as in life, not growing is regressing. Let us not focus on the “noise” anymore and concentrate our endeavors towards individual monumental specifics disallowing the gathering of chatter.
Rolling stones not only gather no moss they create actual momentum.
The individual American who believes in Freedom and requires the Truth is the most powerful species on the planet.
With that power comes responsibility.
The world is a mess.
Let each one of us be the pebble that thrusts itself into the pond creating wave after wave of energetic, excited, ethical behavior.
Clear minds laser focused on two things.
Happy New Year.
We have work to do.
Let us get to it.
