If you were responsible for feeding a hamster, what would you feed it?
Hamster food? Something cheap from a bag?
What if you really wanted to live up to your responsibility? Throw in some carrots and greens?
What if you knew you would only live as long as the hamster lived? Would you feed it differently than if it was a pet someone didn't want and they pushed it off on you?
Would you feed it the cheapest feed you could find or something that had real quality?
If the hamster mattered to you, then you would feed it the best feed you could find and you wouldn't be skipping any days feeding it.
Why? Because you know what goes in matters.
What do you feed you?
Does your body matter? If life matters to you then your body should matter.
Do you eat the cheapest and lowest quality food you can find or are you careful about what you eat because you know it makes a difference?
What about your mind? What do you feed your mind?
There is an old computer saying "Garbage in = Garbage out."
If the data or information you put in a computer is garbage or worthless, you won't get anything valuable from it as your output. The same is true with your mind. Put the daily feed of pop culture garbage in and you won't be getting any solutions to world problems out.
This morning I had a round of the Monday's. With travel and my Churchwork yesterday, it was a long day. I was feeling it this morning. I put on some Jim Rohn, the late and great educator, motivator, teacher and businessman. In no time I was ready to take on the world and wrote two new ad campaigns, made a healthy to do list, entered my work in my journal, enjoyed a light breakfast and made several phone calls.
Because I felt like doing it.
If I had tuned in early to the doom and gloom news, you probably wouldn't be reading this.
Be careful what goes in, it affects what comes out.
best and be blest,
