Your mind, which I call The Drunk Monkey, doesn’t care about your goals and dreams. Have you ever noticed that when you set new goals and new dreams, the first person to talk you out of it is the chatter in your head?
It is imperative that you begin to see that there are two people. There is The Drunk Monkey, which is a non-stop talking machine that never shuts up and has an opinion on everything, and then there is the person who is listening, which is who you really are.
Your goal is to begin to realize that there is talking in your head, which is really trying to keep you safe, and then there is a person who is listening which is trying to have an amazing life.
These two elements are opposing. The person who is listening has surrendered control of your life on accident. In order for you to achieve happiness and success, you have got to stop trusting in the mind and practice trusting your gut. Your gut will say go, do it, you can do this. And your mind will think of a million reasons why you can’t. Your gut will say, take the action, say yes, go for it, and your mind will say, you are not good enough, you’re stupid, you have done it in the past and it didn’t work out.
Begin to see that the mind’s job is to keep you alive, it’s a part of your biology. Notice that today, and watch how it brings relief and it brings more happiness.
Start to recognize that all suffering is a function of your opinion. All opinions are nothing more than an estimation of the mind about the truth of reality. Reality cannot be discerned from the mind. The mind sees life through a filter called your perception.
Once you begin to see The Drunk Monkey in action, you begin to notice how it’s automatic reactions to situations and people are just that, reactions. Upset, fear, concern… these are automatic reactions of the mind to things it thinks MIGHT be dangerous. So, you get upset when things aren’t how you want them. Or you get offended by others. Your family annoys you. On and on, the mind positions itself against others. When it comes to living with peace, and joy… when it comes to collaborating on a business idea… or serving your clients, it just isn’t very practical to be opposing, resisting and protecting yourself.
Choosing to tame The Drunk Monkey is the first step in things under control. Manifesting is easier when you are in a feel-good state. When you are calm, you make better decisions. Opportunities come to those who are in a relaxed, peaceful mindset.
