Your life: Paradise or Dump?
By Leland Sapp
been a month since I posed the following question and wrote the below
story; the changes are profound. I feel more peaceful, eat healthier,
read more, play more chess, meditate, workout, and am trying to learn a
couple of languages. I am confident that this same question, when
reflected upon throughout the day, will move the world (and me) toward
little over two years ago, I had the not so distinct privilege of
working with the laziest man in the world. After observing him for
several months, I asked
the simple but meaningful question: “If everyone
in the world was like you, what kind of world would this be?”
would be a shit hole!" I replied, having to answer my own question. I
went on to recount the ways I observed him make the planet worse.
of us makes choices between whether we are going to make ourselves and
this world better or worse, every day (towards a paradise or towards a
garbage dump). We make decisions regarding our emotions, our
spiritually, and our physical condition.
2013 I have decided to ask myself the following question: "What's best for us?"
“us” I mean myself, the world, and my circle of influence. I ask this
question before saying, eating, buying, watching or doing ANYTHING!
Today alone this question has influenced me to: get up earlier, eat
yogurt, sit up straight while driving, listen to my daughter's band's
new CD (link) (instead of talk radio) and make a decision NOT to watch
"American Horror Story" tonight.
So, “What's best for us?”
