WEBVTT 1 00:00:10.990 --> 00:00:17.429 Good Day, my friend. Welcome to a moment with modes. Thank you 2 00:00:17.710 --> 00:00:22.339 so much for downloading the show. I am so glad to be here with 3 00:00:22.500 --> 00:00:30.699 you again today. Hope you had a great weekend. Let's get on with 4 00:00:30.899 --> 00:00:38.450 having a great week. E pictitis joins the show, and today epictitis tells 5 00:00:38.530 --> 00:00:45.770 us first say to yourself what you would be and then do what you have 6 00:00:46.049 --> 00:00:53.200 to do. What I really like about epicteitis he's pretty clear and it's pretty 7 00:00:53.320 --> 00:01:00.399 easy to understand what he's trying to tell us. My friend, you are 8 00:01:00.560 --> 00:01:04.950 the captain to your own ship. You are your own boss and you're already 9 00:01:06.030 --> 00:01:10.430 in business, and you are the business, you are the company. A 10 00:01:11.750 --> 00:01:18.390 ship doesn't leave the harbor without a destination in mind. And I know at 11 00:01:18.430 --> 00:01:23.739 times it doesn't feel like it, but you are in control. You can 12 00:01:23.859 --> 00:01:30.819 control what you do with most of your free time. You can control your 13 00:01:30.980 --> 00:01:37.170 imagine nation and your ideas. And while we can't control every thought that pops 14 00:01:37.250 --> 00:01:44.290 into our head, we can control the thoughts that we dwell on. We 15 00:01:44.409 --> 00:01:49.760 can control who we have for our role models, we can control the people 16 00:01:49.879 --> 00:01:55.079 that we spend our time with. Mostly, and I'm talking about our our 17 00:01:55.239 --> 00:02:00.319 free time, and we can control our commitments. So we have lots of 18 00:02:00.519 --> 00:02:07.189 control. Knowing where we're going, knowing the destination clarifies the steps it's going 19 00:02:07.230 --> 00:02:10.270 to take for us to get there. And, my friend, you have 20 00:02:10.430 --> 00:02:17.300 to remind yourself, and you have to tell yourself out loud. Remember, 21 00:02:17.539 --> 00:02:24.580 back when you were learning how to count and or learning the Alphabet, how 22 00:02:24.659 --> 00:02:30.930 did you do it? By saying it out loud over and over and over 23 00:02:31.169 --> 00:02:37.770 and over, until it was ingrained so deep that you didn't have to think 24 00:02:37.810 --> 00:02:44.840 about it anymore. As with most things, the saying of it is easy, 25 00:02:45.879 --> 00:02:51.240 but the believing and the doing not so much. The law of attraction 26 00:02:52.000 --> 00:03:00.349 requires action on our part, every day action. You can say and believe, 27 00:03:01.310 --> 00:03:07.750 but without the doing, without the action, the formula doesn't work. 28 00:03:07.629 --> 00:03:13.740 Once you know your destination, it's time to plan the journey, at least 29 00:03:13.819 --> 00:03:20.460 the parts of the journey that we can control. As important as the destination 30 00:03:20.900 --> 00:03:27.569 is, our daily focus needs to be on the journey, the little steps 31 00:03:27.689 --> 00:03:31.610 we need to take every day. If we take care of the little steps 32 00:03:32.250 --> 00:03:38.009 of this, small goals that make a stretch beyond our present reach, we 33 00:03:38.289 --> 00:03:44.680 will reach our destination. Will it be a straight line? My friend, 34 00:03:45.479 --> 00:03:50.000 you can make all the plans you want, but you know as well as 35 00:03:50.039 --> 00:03:55.469 I do it's not likely to be a straight line. So be prepared for 36 00:03:55.669 --> 00:04:01.150 when you have to take a side step or take a backstep. Sometimes we 37 00:04:01.349 --> 00:04:09.270 take a step and we slip. If that happens, steady yourself, revise 38 00:04:09.389 --> 00:04:15.379 where your next step is and, my friend, keep on stepping. Carpe 39 00:04:15.539 --> 00:04:17.139 momentum. I'll talk to you tomorrow.
