The moment you are for something, or against it you limit your options. When you have limited options, you have limited power.
“They shouldn’t act that way” “I don’t like that” “I wish things were different.” Each of these statements, even if a fleeting thought, create a position for and against whatever you are commenting on.
What every few people understand is that when The Drunk Monkey shares its opinions, people step back. They are less likely to include you in projects and opportunities because secretly they are afraid your opinions are going to be pointed like a loaded gun at them someday. As a result you have less power to get things done, and you have to resort to using force to make things happen.
Using force to get what you want takes tremendous effort and is not sustainable. Conversely, having power allows you to move things forward with less effort and more ease.
So, today just notice how your mind is designed to be for and against everything, all the time.
And instead practice being in a more neutral state. Noticing, appreciating, accepting how things are and then taking action from there.
Your goals, dreams and plans move faster when you are not held back by the opinions that limit you.
