Why are you able to work with others? Might be project at work, maybe finishing a roof with friends, or even playing football with family on Thanksgiving.
Have you ever considered why you can work with people? Is it just a norm that we’re born with? Uh, not exactly.
What we do have is a need to belong, to be inspired, to feel positive.
That’s why we also choose who we hang out with, want to work with. That happened because of what you learned at a very early age. You always wanted to feel that way, and has it really changed.
So riddle me this Batman, why do we not consistently strive for that same every day? By the way, when you said “I do”, my bet is that you really don’t.
The culture today is that we are influenced by negative news, advertisements, and peer pressure. We are influenced because we are not as choosy about what we watch or listen too as we are about the people we spend time with. We should all be “informed” on topics we care about, but the information. The information should feel good because then we know the truth – something else that answers the riddle.
Take time today to not only hang out with those that help release endorphins, but with input that also motivates. They’re all choices you have.
