If your “Steel trap mind” is rusted open or rusted shut you have a potential problem.
It made me stop to think.
This was followed by Kim Clausen as part of the Just Do It Challenge for which I will run a webinar on the 12th April (NZ 12 pm) (Book Here). Kim has challenged a number of people to just create and deliver a webinar and her info is helping us deliver something useful but to just do it, make a start. The webinar I am running is “Change Your Future and is step one in the “Eat the Rhino” support program.
Now I had a reason to listen to both but hubby’s point was am I looking for answers and listening so hard that I am doing nothing with the information.
We have friends, students, colleagues, mentorees and other clients who operate in one of two states:
Mind rusted open or Mind Rusted Shut
These are smart people with steel trap minds but in both cases the rusting in either the open or shut position is keeping them stuck and stopping them from excelling.
When your mind is rusted shut, you refuse to look at new ideas. Or if new ideas come along your refuse to accept them because they do not suit your world model. I remember when we wrote our first book, my mother rejected everything in it out of hand because hubby had written it and she thought he was an idiot so how could he write a book. (Interesting, that we keep seeing material from that book quoted in other places and is the bases of several other business gurus teachings).
The mind rusted open is so willing to listen to every new idea but just absolutely is so full of new ideas that they keep jumping from one shiny new idea to the other and never seem to get anywhere or really do anything.
Whether you are too open minded or too closed minded, there is only one way to get out of stuck that I have ever found.
Be on PURPOSE
Remember that you have a reason for being.
You have needs and you can help others fulfill their needs.
It is a day when you can recommit to living on purpose. To realizing that you have control of your mind even if you are unable to control your circumstances.
And that control gives you power. Power to live your life every moment of every day doing your best and giving your all.
Today, oil the steel trap minds of the world and recommit to living your purpose and doing your best today.
Wishing all my Christian readers a very blessed Easter and may the oils of the chocolate eggs and hot cross buns, unrust your mind and help you live this day on purpose.
