There are so many things in the world that we have no control over. In fact, you can even say there’s nothing we’re in control of. Exercising awareness is understanding this truth but also being acutely perceptive about the choices you have to make. Brendan Myers talks about keeping yourself aware in a busy world that you have no control over. You can’t be in the passenger seat your whole life. It’s time to take the reins of whatever things you have control of in your life.

Birds Eye Awareness (Mindset!)
Making The Shift
I know that many times we get sucked into all this stuff around us. We lack all this focus and we get off track and this or that. All I need is a couple of minutes. You’re going to be presented with many different obstacles. You’re going to be able to choose a different path. You’re going to be able to take on this opportunity. Someone’s going to say something to you that might trigger something. You might break up with your girlfriend, boyfriend or be going on to a date. You might have something that’s going to bring a lot of anxiety or nervousness to your situation. I want you to take a step back and think of all that’s going to come in one way. You’re not in control of anything. The only thing you truly are in control of is the awareness that you bring. Think about that for a second. You are not in control of that person saying something to you. You are not in control of the weather outside. You are not in control if the water splashes on your foot and you got brand new shoes because the guy next to you is eating a Chipotle burrito. He spilled it on you.
You are not in control, but what you are in control of is the awareness that you bring. When you have that little person, that Brendan Meyers 2.0, that Ashley 2.0 or that Christopher 2.0 in the back of your mind saying, “Don’t do that. That’s not a good idea. That’s going to push you off the path. This is sickening. This is nasty,” I want you to be aware of it and make your own decision. It’s an interesting state to be in. It’s a great state to be in where you could look at things and not even be impulsive about it or not even react to it. Imagine if you thought about it for a second. What is thought? What is this thought process that everyone talks about? The fact is you don’t control this earth. You don’t control the car in front of you. You don’t control the way your mom talks to you. You don’t control anything around you. You can control what you say, but even then, you’re not in control of a lot of your thoughts. A lot of it is the subconscious mind firing past experience.The only thing you are truly in control of is the level of awareness you bring. Click To Tweet
Take a step back. Bird’s eye view. Can you understand what’s going on the field if you’re standing on the ten-yard line? Can you know what’s going on at the 95-yard line in the corner of the end zone and what logos on the ground and all that? Can you do that? If you can, hit me up and I’d love to hire you and bring you on to CreateU. The fact is when you go up into the sky, you’re a drone, you’re looking at it from a bird’s eye view and you look down, you can see the entire field. You could see the logos. You can see the colors. You can see how this person’s running towards that way or that person’s running that way. You could see the formations and this and that.
Imagine the field is your cautious mind. That’s the things that are being said in your mind and say, “This, that, worry, freak out, push yourself.” That is the field of play. You are a bird’s eye view, a drone looking down and setting up your day for success because you can see everything happening. You are aware. Have a great day and kick ass. Inside the mind of Brendan Meyers is coming through on YouTube soon. CreateU Nutrition, we have our mood, product, stress product and other things coming. I can’t wait for you to try them all out. I appreciate you and I’ll see you next time. Peace.
