Hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend! No doubt many of you spent it with good company and even better food, preferably something grilled! Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer. The kids are back at school and most of us stay at home parents with kids at school age have a lot more free time on our hands.
I don't know about you but the Fall is probably my favorite time of the year. The leaves are changing colors and the air is nice and crisp. To me it's the perfect time of year because it's not too hot or cold. I also find it to be very inspiring.
One of the things I enjoy about the Fall is watching the squirrels go to work. Their fur coats change and get a lot thicker to protect them from the winter storms ahead. In addition to that physical change, they are busy collecting and hiding nuts all around their tree. The reason they do this is so they can manage until Spring and Summer arrives. See the squirrel knows they can't control how the Winter turns out. So instead they instinctively focus on what they can control which is collecting nuts and strategically placing it around their home.
So Eddy, what's up with this Discovery Channel commentary on these fury versions of rats?
Well many of us are like squirrels but aren't behaving like it of late. Too many of us are watching the news reports about the economic Winter we're having and pretty much just wandering about being depressed about it (rightfully so!). But how has that helped the situation? Can you imagine if squirrels acted like this? You would see a gang of frozen rodents every winter. But you don't. They thrive just fine. You know why? Because they know Winter is a season that will pass. They may not know exactly when but they don't focus on that. They focus on what they can control.
I'm encouraging you to act more like these fury little rodents this Fall and on. I challenge you to focus on the things you can control in your life. Trust me, despite what the gloom and doom news reports will have you believe, you do have some control in your life. First it starts by limiting your intake of that negative garbage on the news. Next it means to take more action in your life. I don't care what type of action it is. But it has to be towards gaining control in some area of your life that is causing you pain or stress.
Eventually when you take enough continuous and consistent action things do get better. Next thing you know you'll be like a squirrel sitting on a stack of "nuts" looking at winter as another season that will pass. So this is how I want you to view this Fall. Let it be the rise of a new you that takes control again! We can't control the economy but we damn skippy can control how we react to it.
In any event, let me stop my preaching. But I felt compelled to share this with you. Hopefully it something you can appreciate and this Fall will be the start of a new beginning for you. Every day is the opportunity to start anew. Let today be that for you. Is this resonating with you? Let me know below.
Either way, enjoy this week's leads.
