Imagine you have a cup of water and someone puts one tiny spec of feces in it - it’s such a minuscule amount that you can’t really even see it but you know that it’s in there. You decide that it’s just one little negative thing in your life and it’s not that big of a deal. So, you chug that water because you decide it’s OK and it’s going to taste great. You may cringe at the thought … but that’s what many of us are doing in other aspects of our lives.
Where do we have "poop" in our lives?
It’s common to weave pieces of negativity into our lifestyle - pieces that don’t uplift. Take, for instance, the media. The media is laced with negativity - sometimes it’s so subtle, you barely notice it’s there. You may justify it because it’s just a little spec that won’t really matter. In reality though, it may be pornographic, sleazy, or degrading in some way. Another popular way people do this is with language. A crude or negative word here and there isn't really going to matter, is it? A little bit of sleaze in this otherwise great show isn’t that big of a deal, is it?
Well, does that little spec of poop in the water matter? If you drink a glass of water with a drop of poop in it, will it have an effect on you? Even if you can’t see it, there is unhealthy bacteria in it that could eventually lead to trouble. What if you drank that every single day?
What to do about it?
Here are some quick questions to help you analyze the quality of what you let in your life:
- What is on the walls of your home?
- What are you listening to?
- What are you watching?
- What are your putting into your body?
- What kind of food are you eating?
- What kind of people are you hanging around with?
Then ask yourself, "Is this one of those pieces of poop that I should get rid of or is this pure liquid goodness?”
If you commit to drinking the pure liquid and fill your life with good uplifting media, podcasts, messages, movies, friends, and food in everything you do, you can't help but create success.
In the simplest terms, check what you are putting in, get rid of the poop in your life, and enjoy more light and energy.
