Happy June 1st! The year is almost HALF over. Are you using your time wisely?
Look – here’s the deal. There’s a TON of negativity out there. It’s everywhere. And with 24-hour news, an election cycle in full swing and neverending social media – negativity can get the best of you. It can turn you sour. Stress you out. Make you not talk to your family.
Or, you can go down the road of comparison and come up with 1000 examples of how you’re not doing enough, traveling enough, earning enough… blah…blah…blah.
STOP. The madness must end.
GOOD NEWS: you can rise about it. Right… now.
That’s what today’s Power and Purpose TV is all about.
Before I get into today’s message – I want to remind you that I have my final Unstuck Tour stop in Denver this Saturday.
It’s going to be a powerful 4-hour LIFE CHANGING seminar.
I’m gonna bring it. If you’re in the area, I’d love to meet you. If you’re in the area and haven’t signed up yet – time to stop procrastinating and grab your tickets. This is my last Unstuck event of 2016.
Now – about that negativity in your life.
Are you ready to end it? Good. Let’s do that today.
You see – even though all the negative voices in your life hold you back, piss you off, stress you out and make you feel like sh*t – sometimes you may actually want to keep them around?
Huh? Why would that be?
Well – here’s a tough truth.
Sometimes, when you are focused on the negative – you are conveniently ignoring the stuff you’re supposed to be doing… like living your purpose.
It’s so much easier to get caught up in the drama and negative stuff out there than it is to take the risk, live your purpose, start your business, lose the weight, write the book – or whatever it is you are procrastinating on.
Purpose > negativity.
So, let’s put on consuming all the negative stuff that’s holding you back and let’s get back on track with all the good stuff that’s going to make your life rock – sound good?
I want you to refocus on what’s important. I want you to be surrounded by joy… love… abundance… support. And – I want you to have a negativity free life – where you say no to the drama and YES to your purpose.
Make sure to watch today’s coaching video.
I made it just for you.
Remember to get out there, take action & make it real!
Your biggest cheerleader,
Hello and welcome to Power & Purpose TV. I’m your host Mastin Kipp, and I’m coming to you from Lumeria-Maui, one of my favorite places in the world. I’m so excited to come to you from Maui today.
So question for you: Do you feel like the negative noise in your life is so loud that you don’t know how to tune it down?
Maybe the TV and everything you see coming on the TV or on Facebook and you’re scrolling down and there is just so much negativity in the world. Or maybe the people that you’re surrounded with, there’s just so much negativity. How do you tune it all out?
I’m going to share with you today how to tune out those negative voices, get back to your heart and really figure out what it is that lights you up. Sound good?
The first thing we have to do is turn the damn thing off. Turn the TV off, get off Facebook, get SelfControl – it’s one of my favorite apps in the world. It’s called SelfControl. It helps you turn off all social media because we could be addicted to looking at the negative voices.
Think about this, you’re driving down the road and you see an accident. What does the mind do? Boom! Let me focus on the accident. And why do we do this? Because it’s a fight or flight response.
We feel like if we don’t pay attention to these things that are threatening us then we’re going to die. And that’s not true. We want to become aware of the news and become aware of what’s happening in the world but we don’t want to become overwhelmed with all of it.
And there are so many reasons today to be overwhelmed with negativity.
So stop it!! Set a boundary. Turn it off.
Next, we want to cultivate self-care practices. So what does this look like? It’s look like prayer, meditation, healthy eating, clean your schedule, making sure that we’re getting enough sleep.
These are all very big things. And we want to start filling our minds with uplifting material, spiritual material – whether it’s a book, watching this video or going to a lecture or a seminar, whatever it might be, we want to start to fill our minds with inspiring material AND we want to look for the good that’s happening in the world.
And here’s what true. Just because the news is full of so much negativity or people arguing over their political beliefs on Facebook, doesn’t mean that is all that’s happening.
But here’s what it does mean. There is a tagline in the news business that says this: If it bleeds, it leads. Because the more it bleeds, the more eyeballs we get because we all panic and we have to pay attention to all this negative stuff. And if the world was reported and the news was reported as to what was really going on, there are a lot of incredible stuff happening in the world today. Incredible advances in science, spirituality, personal growth and for all the tragedy, which there is a lot of tragedy, there is also a lot of good.
And so YOU can focus on and choose what YOU want to pay attention to and what YOU want to fill your mind with. Because what you fill your mind with is what you’re going to see. And we can get into a hypnosis around this negative cycle that we see on social media and with the news. I’m not anit-news or anti-social media but I am for you filling your brain, filling your mind with amazing content.
And then what do we want to do? Well we don’t want to just sit around and just read stuff all day. We want to take the a-ha moments and the breakthroughs and put them into action, right? A lot of people think that if I have an a-ha moment I’m done.
But if you have an a-ha moment that is the beginning of the work. And so, if you really want to silence the negative voices in your mind take the a-ha moments, take the breakthroughs, take these spiritual and existential insights that you’re having and put them into practice.
Start serving other people, start helping other people, start the blog, start the business, start or end the relationship, do the thing that you know that you have to do so you don’t feel so stuck. Because one of the other reasons why we feel stuck in those negative voices is it’s just easy to be there. It’s so much easier to stay stuck in negativity than it is to have the courage to go out there and really get after what we want.
So that would be my advice for you. Set some boundaries with the news, set some boundaries with your social media, fill your mind with inspiring information consistently – I have an hour of cardio that I do every day and while I’m doing that, I fill my mind with inspiring content. I don’t just pay attention to the news. I’m aware of what’s happening but I fill my mind. I try to read a book a week.
So fill your mind with inspiring content and then get out there and put it into action! Because remember, if we don’t put it into action what do we call that? If you’re new then this will be a new term for you or maybe you’ve heard me say this before… If you just read the books and you don’t take action we call that spiritual entertainment. And spiritual entertainment will create resentment if that’s all you do. So we need to take spiritual entertainment and turn it into courageous action. And when you make that shift, everything changes.
So, in the comments below let me know how are you going to set boundaries with the news, with social media? Are you going to download the SelfControl app? How are you going to fill your mind with inspiring content and look for the good that’s happening in the world? And then how are you going to take all of that and put it into right action and courageous action in your life so you’re not just sitting around reading a bunch of books but not taking any action, it’s embodied in your life? I would love to know in the comments below.
And, if this video has served you or if it’s created an a-ha moment for you I would love for you to pass this on to someone that you know. Feel free to send this link. You could change their life with one click of a button, and I think that’s pretty cool!
