Automatic TRANSCRIPT

What do you see me. Take a crack at it and do my best impression of psychic. Things are okay the way they are. We often think about how they could be better. You're doing your best to stay happy out here but sometimes people just bother you and get you down is all right but you're capable of more on. All things are fine but they could always be better and by. Golly you know that you could be better. He can see yourself rising above everything with grace not worried about a thing you see it is within your grasp and then boom the alarm goes off in your lunch break is over. Go back to work. Then you go home and take part in your usual dinner. Tv instagram scrolling. And maybe through teen. If you have enough time then you wake up early gets rest. Go to work. Take your lunch break and repeat pause if you're about to stop listening and write me off forever don't or if you do just know that the problem is with five dollars psychics. Now with you. I shall take that back. There's no problem with five dollars. Psychics over you were all fine in transition right where we are. It's quite natural to fantasize about how things could be better men for the extra responsible people to think about how you could be better. Not everything else is natural to compare ourselves to what we think of as the best version of ourselves or two people we emulate want. What's best for ourselves. We want peace and happiness. So when you envision someone that's completely at peace what do you see. Is it a buddhist monk. Who's been meditating for the last seven years without taking a break to eat or sleep or perhaps if someone who's frolicking naked through a field of sunflowers may-maybe elon musk gleefully wielding his flame thrower as he prances around mars without a worry in the world. We all have our image of whatever that peaceful person looks like. However you envision a person piece the one trait that i would think permeates through. Everyone's interpretation is easiness. Simplicity those who are at peace never seem to have to struggle through things do they. Life is beautiful and happiness seems to require no efforts or more importantly no his auction. It is here where many people looking to better themselves go wrong. The trap we fall into is thinking that having an easy and peaceful way life is just that simple and easy we get angry at ourselves and say Why can't i just do that. So simple these peaceful people are doing nothing as far as we can see those who are at peace those who are genuinely happy. Essentially have the same lives as us. They just handled better rowley missing. That one little trait won't that is true. Salsa true that the difference between you and a professional hockey player is that you don't skate like a magician. Shoot a puck hundred miles per hour and have hands as soft as an angel is really not a whole lot of difference the issue however is that when it comes to simple happy. Living is easy to not acknowledge expertise. You look at the differences between you and hockey player and say yeah. But they've trained their entire lives to do that. I can't just do that often. We don't have the same reaction or level of patients when comparing ourselves to those who have more peace in their lives. It looks easy. We focus on all the good. Forget about the struggle that needs to be endured. Assume something wrong with us for not being able to pick it up instantaneously now here this. Mastering peace of mind is like mastering anything else. It requires a ton of practice. Is it a simple concept. You're right. It is but your brain is in simple. Your baggage is simple. Your undoing a lifetime thinking patterns to attain the level of peace. you want. He thinks you don't have to work for it. Three therapy sessions are not going to do. The trick is if you want to attain peace of mind. The root to getting there requires effort. Saturation and obsession requires diligence and maintenance. You wouldn't expect to be a professional athlete after reading about it a few times each month and practicing once a week that's nonsense. He must be both realistic and patient with yourself. In this matter so decide now what degree of peace you want and how badly you want it decide whether or not you believe in the path to getting there and whether or not it's a path you'd enjoy to find your metric of success after watching my video called the metric of success lowell. Make a plan based on practices that you'll enjoy and stick with it. There is no right answer here. Ideally everyone would want an optimal level of peace. Were all at different places in life. We all define piece in different ways. We all have different priorities. And we're all veering distances away from peace. This kind of self-assessment is incredibly healthy mother. It'd be about peace or anything else.
