I told you in the last post that the biggest danger you face isn’t negative people, but the neutral ones. Like most things in life the biggest evil isn’t some intentionally malicious force – but the threat of mediocrity. It is the most insidious evil.
That is the evil that stops you from doing the last set at the gym, the last lap in the pool, the extra hour studying for an exam, or making that little extra effort at the job. It’s the comfort zone.
Which is really the death zone for someone seeking higher consciousness…
We can get complacent, and figure we have attained something. Which we have. But having attained something and resting on it is no different than the people who never tried to attain anything. Because it is wasted potential. Apathy. And mediocrity.
Which is the worst of the worst. Accepting that which is enough to get by, but not really tapping into your greatness.
So here’s my question for you: What areas of your life are you accepting mediocrity in right now? And what is your real potential?
By the way, I’m supposed to be doing a program in Lithuania tonight. Instead, I’m blogging from bed from my hotel in Stockholm because I was too sick to travel this morning. I’ve got an audience of 10,000 waiting in Bangkok this weekend so please send me some healing energy so I can head out there tomorrow.
And since I am laying here a prisoner in bed, I decided to give you a Mental Aerobics challenge...
Let’s test your vocabulary and math skills. No cheating in the dictionary here! Here’s your challenge:
If “diaphanous” and “sheer” do not have the same meaning, cross out all the 9’s in the line below. If they do, cross out all the 6’s. If “slough” and “cough” are pronounced the same, multiply the number of 4’s by 6. If not, add up all of the non-crossed out numbers and multiply by 4.
9 4 6 4 9 4 6 9 4 6 9
Please check in below with your answers to both the questions, and the Mental Aerobics. I post the answer depending on my healing powers and travel schedule.
