With this beautiful background, I thought I'd bring up the concept from physics called buoyancy, or upthrust. Buoyancy is a principle of an upward force exerted by a fluid opposing the weight of an immersed object. That's why boats, you, and I float.
In scuba diving, you see the scuba divers that wear these vests, right? So when divers go down, after a certain depth, we become negatively buoyant, and we just keep sinking. So those vests allow us to put air in them to compensate for that which is why they are called buoyancy compensating devices.
Therefore, we can just hang out, wherever that is, 80 feet, 100 feet, and boom, just sit in neutral and hover in the water without any effort, no kicking, no swimming, just there. Because you're in a fluid. So without this, we're negatively buoyant, and we just keep sinking.
Let's take that concept out of physics and from scuba diving and into your life. Where do you have a buoyancy compensation device for you, so you don't get pulled under, so you don't sink?
In this day and age, it is critical. With all that's going on, I watch too many people sink when they don't have to. I know times challenging, I get it. But that's where we get the chance to rise above, right, literally rise above.
If you have a greater buoyancy compensation system, you will rise above and you won't get pulled under and you won't sink.
So how can you do that? Well, one of the most powerful things that I teach my students and clients is to 'manage your environment'
Manage your environment! One important place is your 'mental environment. What do you allow in here? If you keep listening to what "they" have to say, from out there, it's going to take you under because most of everything that's out there right now is based on fear, lack, and limitation. What you're not capable of, what's not possible.
That's enough to sink anybody.
Hence, look around the world. Businesses closing, people having all kinds of challenges, right? For those of us that don't listen to 'that noise, we're thriving, we're not just surviving, we're thriving. Yet it's possible for anybody.
So be mindful of what you put in your head, in your mind. Manage your environment! Who do you hang out with? Are you hanging out with people that are trying to pull you down because of their own fears and lacks and limitations? If you stay in that environment then that's on you. Get around a better group of people. Up-level, that's on you as well. ( and that doesn't make anybody right or wrong.)
But your life is your responsibility? No one else's; not the governments, not your family, no one- IT'S YOURS. Take ownership of it, right? Manage your environment. Up-level your system. So there are things that you can do to grow yourself. And one of them I would love to have you join me at the highest levels. Come play with me. Come play with me. August 1-7, 2021 at my last retreat in this location.
This Retreat is called Meeting Your True Self... There are only three spaces left.
It's high-end, high achievers doing some serious work, and having fun too.
Up leveling ourselves, managing our environment at the highest levels to achieve whatever you want. And to really learn how to create a magnificent 'buoyancy compensation device'.
