WRITING 154: SELF-TALK

I NEED A ROLE MODEL: JOHN COCHRANE IS ONE, FOR NOW. WATCH HIS VIDEO REGULARLY.

ALSO, I SHOULD SERIOUS CONSIDER WRITE A BOOK ON SIM. THIS MAY TAKE ONE OR TWO YEARS. BUT THE REWARD IS TREMENDOUS. IT WILL SHARPEN MY UNDERSTANDING.

YOU MUST PRACTICE. READING IS NOT ENOUGH. ONLY WHEN YOU ACUTALLY DO IT, YOU WILL TRULY UNDERSTAND WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN’T. KEEP A OPEN MIND. ALLOW FAILURES. IN FACT, EXPECT LOTS OF FAILURES. THEY SHOULD BE SEEN AS A MEASURE OF ONE’S DARING AND COURAGE TO TRY NEW STUFF.

SMILE, SMILE, AND SMILE. THAT MEANS I MUST CHANGE MY MENTALITY. I SHOULD ELEVATE ABOVE THE ANGER AND AGONY. TAKE A BROAD VIEW. SEE THE HUMOR IN ALL THESE SITUATIONS: THIS IS WHERE THE FUN BEGINS. NOTHING LASTS FOREVER. ALL ARE JUST A SLICE OF MY EXPERIENCES. THAT IS ALL MATTERS.

THE NEW MINDSET WILL MAKE ME MORE HAPPY.

THIS SUNDAY, I SHOULD TAKE TIME TO THINK THINGS OVER.

  1. It’s never good to rely on anger. But changing your mindset takes a little longer than a few days. However, the first step is always realising something’s wrong, and what comes next is change. I hope you have a good trip and you’ll get your thoughts together :)
