Don’t Feed The Animals

Posted · Add Comment

You have to appreciate the warning signs on the animal cages at the zoo. “Don’t Feed the Animals”.

1. Why would I stick my hand, or my child’s hand into the cage of a wild animal?

2. Do these animals crave zoo food such as popcorn and corn dogs?

3. See #1 again.

There are animals in our minds that we feed. Seth Godin refers to our brain as Lizard Brain. SONY DSC

Seth says, “We say we want one thing, then we do another. We say we want to be successful but we sabotage the job interview. We say we want a product to come to market, but we sandbag the shipping schedule. We say we want to be thin but we eat too much. We say we want to be smart but we skip class or don’t read that book the boss lent us.”

“The contradictions never end. When someone shows up and acts without contradiction, we’re amazed. When an athlete just does the sport, or when a writer just writes the words, we can’t help but watch, astonished at the purity of their actions. Why is it so difficult to do what we say we’re going to do?”

The lizard brain.

The athlete shows up at the racing event, get’s into the starting position and runs when they hear the starting gun. You know what you need to do. You have a vision for your life and a plan mapped out, so show up, get into position and run! Put your lizard on a leash and show it you’re in control of your destiny.
