Understanding Fire: That's one of Man's greatest achievements. That applies both externally and internally.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Where would we be without an understanding of how to use fire?

Wouldn't we be cold and uncomfortable?

Wouldn't we be uninspired?

Wouldn't we be in the dark...at least, half the time?

People mirror trust.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Trust: it's a dynamic thing; it flows 2 ways; you must extend it in order to receive it; it starts with Thought, then it inspires Action.

***

A double-entendre metaphor: we have mirror neurons in our brains to help us understand other people's intentions...and we tend to mirror other people's behaviour.

Intrinsic Goals feel right...they align with our talents & strengths...they inspire & energize us.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Intrinsic Goals mesh with life purpose, mastery of task, and self-actualization.

Naturally, intrinsic goals align with talents and Strengths.

And, in contrast to extrinsic goals, intrinsic goals tend to broaden rather than restrict experiences. 

 

When we to want to win at all costs, our perspectives become quite blind to the realities of situations.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some people cannot adjust their thinking to fit the realities of the situations at hand.

Some people cannot even begin to untie their emotions, so they can use logic to think about the real facts they face in situations.

Perhaps, the problem is, their Ego must cry out for help regardless of the situation they face?  

 

 

Winners seek solutions and think of better places. Losers agonize over problems and fear uncertainty.

The choice is yours.

Choose fixing the problem over fixing the blame.

Why anger is better than frustration

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Confusion: that's a light sampling of conflicted thought.

Torn between 2...that's a heavier sampling.

Confounded: that can be bloody annoying.

Conflicted thoughts are the roots of frustration.

Frustration gets you nowhere & getting nowhere is frustrating: a vicious circle or downward spiral.

At least when we are angry we are more certain about our thoughts. This is why anger is better than frustration.
