Friday Podcast Reccomendation

I'm going to start having this as a regular entry. I listen to a lot of podcasts; most of the time I don't hear what the people are saying because I listen to them while I'm working. I just enjoy having the background noise.

Every once-in-awhile I hear something that's really cool come out of the ear buds. +

Today's podcast is kind of a hit or miss one that I've been checking out for a couple of weeks. Sometimes I don't listen to the whole thing but this week something was said that really stuck a chord with me.

Now, this is going to be a little touchy-feely but it really makes sense when you think about it.

The thing that was said was about our motivation to do things or accomplish things stems from out desire to feel something for ourselves. The revolutionary idea that isn't revolutionary at all is that we have the ability to feel that way about ourselves right now.

Often times if we are able to create a positive mindset in regards to ourselves that will facilitate our ability to achieve whatever goal was originally the thing that we thought we needed. Does that make sense?

To reiterate, the thing that we want to accomplish (weight loss, fitness, patience, writing) has the weight that comes with it, a kind of pressure to succeed so that we can feel something. If we allow ourselves to feel good about ourselves regardless of that accomplishment we can become more well-balanced human beings.

Agree? Disagree?

Just some thoughts

Have a good Friday.
