Beware of what you say, because somebody far greater than you is listening: the universe.

It’s amazing how many people will say things before their day starts, which then actually dictate what their entire day would be.

It’s almost like you’re a future projector, and didn’t even know it.

How many times have you woken up after a mediocre night’s sleep?

And thought to yourself, man, I’m really going to be tired today. This is going to be a rough day.

Meanwhile, it’s 7:00am.

You have no idea how the day is going to be.

You haven’t done a thing, yet within the realm of the day to even know what type of day it is, yet you’ve already projected exactly what the day is going to be. It’s going to be a rough day. How do you know that? How do you even remotely know that? How do you even know what today is going to be, you have no idea. You have no idea that maybe you have a lot energy. Maybe you’ll be fine.

So what do you do?

Like most people, you go for some type of stimulant.

You go for coffee.

Maybe you’ve got Adderall laying around.

Maybe you’ve got some marijuana in the house.

Maybe you go for one of those Red Bulls instead, and you give yourself that jolt that you need, because already you predicted inside your brain what type of day you’re going to have. So then you start loading up on any of the stimulants mentioned above.

You start to get a little out of sorts, and a little irritable.

You say to yourself, it must be from the lack of sleep I had the night before. I knew it was going to be a rough day! I knew today was going to be tough for me.

So you continue on that path all day. You see, the stimulants that you put in your body are stimulants that are not naturally there for you to use all the time.

Sure, caffeine might grow and sure, Adderall might have 1% natural something in there, maybe the white coating might be natural chalk. Who the hell knows?

So as the day goes on, you get a little out of sorts.

Your brain is going all over the place because you are over stimulated and over hyped-up on a stimulant, which in turn leads you to become irritable. You blame the irritability on the lack of sleep — NOT on the fact that you’ve been abusing stimulants all day and you continue to take more stimulants, thinking that that’s the reason why you’re going to be able to make it through the day.

But in reality, what you’re doing to yourself and doing to your brain is making it fire in eight million different directions, directions it didn’t need to go.

You see, I don’t take stimulants. If I wake up tired, that means I woke up tired. I have no idea what the day is going to bring. There have been many a day where I’ve woken up very tired.

Had a momentary thought of, today might be rough.

Erased that thought because I knew that I was literally programming myself for the day.

And had some of the most spectacular days on little sleep. I remember when I sometimes travel and get minimal sleep, and yet I seem to make it through the day perfectly fine. Why?

Because the only stimulation you need in life is your life. If you can’t be stimulated by the life, then there’s not a chance in hell you’re going to survive on this planet.

You see, life is really stimulating. Life is really interesting. You never know who you’re going to meet, you never know who you are going to speak with, you never know who might call you, you never know what text might come in.

Life is the high that I choose every single day.

I choose life as my stimulant.

I choose to leave myself to be fully conscious to what life is.

I don’t alter my brain chemistry in any way, shape or form, so that I can literally not be present. Because every time you play with a stimulant, every time you limit, or every single time you push yourself, you use a stimulant. You’re not going to be fully in alignment with what life needs to bring. Because if your brain is going to be scattered all over the place.
