What Were You Thinking?
A strange thing happened to me on Thursday.
Mum was down from Queensland visiting and she was spending the last couple of days with me. As well as going for a spin in Candy (The V8 Mustang that is wifey's car), we chatted and did a few things. On Thursday I made my famous Frangelico and Walnut brownies (let me know if you want the recipe). This is when the strange thing happened. Just after I poured the mix into the bowl, I turned to Mum and asked "Do you want to lick the spoon?"
It was like one of those science fiction movies. All of a sudden I was swept back to when I was a kid and mum would ask me, "Do you want to lick the spoon?" It was so not how the situation was "supposed" to be. But the more I thought about it, the more I realised that it is EXACTLY how life is supposed to be.
Each generation matures to take over the role of the previous one. It happens all around us. So why do we fight it?
It is because of what we are thinking. We hold ourselves back with old ways of thinking. We have ideas of what our parents should do, our boss should do, our colleagues should do, what we can't do, what subordinates shouldn't do... the ideas and rules of what we can and can't do continue on!!!
Change your thinking!!
By the power vested in me by your subscription to the Get More Goer, I hereby give you permission to break your own rules!!
You can parent your parents, you can boss your boss, you can lead your leaders, and you can do all the things you tell yourself you can't. It is OK to say No to your boss. You can submit your ideas to the discussion even if you are a junior and haven't been there long.
Change your thinking and you will change your life.
Go get 'em!
