Up’s and Downs: How To Stay Centered
How To Stay Centered when out in the sea, in order to avoid seasickness, it is recommended that you keep your eyes focused on the horizon. The horizon is stationary and solid. It gives you a reference point that you can count on and will not under any circumstances change its position. It is an orientation point that no matter how rough the seas get, no matter how much your body gets thrown around, you always have this anchored focal point.
Lessons From Life
Like the sea, things in life sometimes get a little rough. Distractions come in like rogue currents to push us this way or that. We encounter obstacles, stormy weather, uncooperative crew, any number of ominous beings lurking in the deep! The key to survival? Make sure you have an anchored focal point! This anchored focal point can be a specific goal, core values, specific intentions, or even an attitude that you want to obtain. The important thing is that you never lose sight of his focal point. It is your anchor and your focus regardless of what is happening around you.
Form Your Posse
Your posse is your inner circle of peers that you can trust. Use your Master Mind group, a think tank, and brain trust all in one. This group of peers are the people that you go to when you lose your direction, get stuck, or need energy and inspiration. They are the ones that you can trust with your innermost thoughts and most creative ideas. These people do not qualify easily. It takes time, experience, and relationship-building to establish such a group. But it will be one of the most important resources you can create. they will help you stay centered and you will help them do the same
