Dieta Comunicazionale

“Bombardati dai mass media, i bambini imparano ad osservare il lato peggiore della vita, gli vengono proposti modelli impossibili e irraggiungibili, e comportamenti più stupidi e incredibili, e questo impedisce una buona crescita.
Pubblicità quotidiane prodotte da menti malate, spot pubblicitari assurdi, mostrano vite impossibili e comportamenti idioti, bambocci e Barbie, “fighi” di plastica e “fighe” di plastica, il modello mentale di persone che vivono solo per gli oggetti e l’apparenza, in vite arredate di altrettanta plastica e falsità.
I messaggi che nascondono sono tanti. Ti dicono sottilmente che non sei adeguato, cercano di insinuare in te una tensione, un impulso a comprare o imitare, per poi tornare a sentirti povero come prima dopo qualche ora, o qualche giorno. La vita vera è altro. Spezza questa catena.
Allora, esiste il momento sacro, in cui, da adulti, possiamo renderci conto delle menzogne che ci hanno contornato e cercare una nostra via personale verso la verità e verso la pulizia mentale.
Possiamo capire che siamo stati sottoposti ad una “dieta comunicazionale” fatta di abbondanza di messaggi deviati e falsi. Solo allora possiamo e dobbiamo riprendere le redini della nostra “dieta comunicazionale”, e scegliere cosa vogliamo imparare e conoscere”.

Concetti fondamentali dal volume

image022Il potenziale umano. Metodi e tecniche di coaching e training per lo sviluppo delle performance

Copyright Daniele Trevisani

Ogni persona può fare incursioni fuori dalla zona di comfort, fino alla zona di sfida. L’over-reaching è per pochi e richiede un supporto di coach preparatissimi.

È necessario evitare di esporre all’elaborazione mentale una mole eccessiva di dati o problematiche (sovraccarico o overload), a meno che non si tratti di una precisa strategia allenante di sovraccarico intenzionale (overreaching), che va ingegnerizzata e non deve accadere nella normalità.

L’esigenza di disporre di un metodo ha portato i miei interventi a costruire un principio generale aperto, un metodo interdisciplinare di Regie di Cambiamento™, che comprende sotto-modelli come lo Human Performance Model (HPM), metodi sviluppato nelle nostre esperienze di ricerca e di coaching per dare struttura consistenza ai percorsi di crescita personale e/o organizzativa.

Nel progetto sulle Regie di Cambiamento sono stati inquadrati diversi tipi di stimolazione formativa, che corrispondono a spazi di azione in cui le persone si muovono:

Figura 9 – Zone stimolo e gli effetti sul potenziale personale

zone-noia-sfida-overreaching

In questa sede vogliamo esaminare il rapporto tra le zone e l’ingegneria dell’apprendimento (Learning Experience Engineering).

Il compito delle azioni di sviluppo del potenziale è allargare la zona operativa e accedere con nuove risorse alla zona che prima era proibita. Il senso sottostante non è quello di trasformare un essere umano in un robot privo di emozioni, ma di permettergli di essere ciò che può essere rimuovendo ostacoli e barriere, e accedendo pienamente alle sue risorse non ancora coltivate e trasformate in energie disponibili.

Una larga parte degli esseri umani ha il potenziale fisico, alla nascita, di arrivare a livelli atletici olimpionici, o ricercatori eccellenti, se il potenziale viene coltivato, e lo stesso soggetto potrà invece ridursi in condizioni di quasi totale abulia in condizioni diverse e negative.

Anche sul piano intellettuale, una stragrande maggioranza degli esseri umani che vedono la luce sul pianeta ha la possibilità e le basi genetiche per avvicinarsi a livelli di pensiero ed umanistici molto elevati, ad esempio laurearsi e pluri-laurearsi, essere creativi, sviluppare pensiero strategico e problem-solving di alto livello.

Una piccola frazione di persone tuttavia vi riesce, largamente a causa del clima psicologico che incontra, favorevole o sfavorevole all’autoespressione e alla crescita. Questi blocchi diventano poi auto-convinzioni, ed il circolo si chiude a spirale in un crescendo di auto-impoverimento.

Il ruolo di un professionista del potenziale umano consiste soprattutto nel costruire il clima psicologico adeguato allo sviluppo di sé, e orchestrare azioni stimolo entro una ingegneria degli stimoli che tocchi tutte le aree della crescita personale e professionale.

La noia, non subita ma adeguatamente “ingegnerizzata”, può essere utilizzata per fasi di “scarico” o recupero, la zona di comfort è utile per consolidare competenze, la zona di sfida per “produrre adrenalina”, stimolare e aumentare l’acquisizione di nuove risorse, la zona di over-reaching è utile per fare i conti con se stessi e la realtà, capire dove sono i limiti, fare “stretching” e “incursioni guidate” su aree prima proibite, ampliare gli orizzonti. Farlo senza un coaching professionale, tuttavia, significa solo farsi del male, a volte peggio. Per cui, quando fate incursioni oltre la zona del limite, abbiate sempre il coraggio di farvi aiutare. Questo è il supremo coraggio.

INDICE DELLA SESSIONE

Presentazione di Daniele Trevisani

In questa prima traccia Daniele Trevisani, l’autore di questo programma

audio, si presenta a te e ti racconta il percorso che lo ha portato a essere

un coach internazionale, esperto di crescita personale, potenziale umano

e comunicazione.

Presentazione del programma audio

Nella seconda traccia Daniele ti presenta il suo programma audio e la

sessione di coaching dove, con un linguaggio diretto e coinvolgente, ti

parlerà di crescita personale e ti suggerirà diversi strumenti per la tua ri-

cerca interiore e per sviluppare il tuo potenziale.

La spia rossa

Il tuo cruscotto personale cosa dice? La spia rossa è quel senso di disagio

che ti indica che qualcosa non va. Questo è uno strumento fondamentale

per capire cosa non va e cosa hai in te che può essere espresso e che ti

può aiutare nel tuo progresso personale. Parti da qui per esprimere il tuo

potenziale personale.

Il progresso personale

In questa traccia Daniele ti spiegherà cosa è il progresso personale, come

innescare il percorso verso la tua realizzazione, verso ciò che per te e solo

per te è importante. Ti sprona a focalizzarti sul tuo personale significato

di progresso e a non avere paura del cambiamento.

Ascolta la nave

Tu sei il solo comandante della tua nave: il tuo corpo, la tua mente e la tua

anima. Imparare ad ascoltare la tua nave significa ascoltare quello che

davvero è il tuo destino. Solo così potrai tracciare la rotta del tuo progres-

so ed essere il capitano della tua vita.

Una visione olistica delle performance

Ogni tua azione, ogni tuo progetto e ogni tuo successo sono il frutto di

un insieme di fattori. Con il metodo HPM elaborato da Daniele avrai una

visione d’insieme (olistica) degli elementi che fanno di una performance

un’ottima performance. Applica questo nuovo approccio a ciò che fai e il

successo è assicurato.

Il mondo dell’intangibile che cambia la performance

Ogni prestazione possiede un fattore di potenza superiore, questo fattore

è ciò che ti spinge oltre, quella forza che possiedi ma di cui a volte non sei

consapevole. Qui Daniele ti spiegherà come attivarlo e usarlo per cambia-

re in meglio ciò che fai e come lo fai.

Dieta comunicazionale

La dieta comunicazione è un aspetto molto serio quanto poco trattato. In

questa traccia Daniele ti indica il corretto modo di informarti e valutare ciò

che i media ti propongono per evitare di perdere il senso di ciò che stai

facendo, di ciò che desideri e di ciò che stai creando.

La spirale del silenzio

Il concetto di spirale del silenzio, elaborato negli anni Settanta da Noelle-

Neumann, mostra come più un tema viene evitato dai media e nelle

conversazioni e più si allontana dalla mente delle persone fino a sparire.

A partire da questo Daniele ti invita a ritrovare, approfondire e diffondere

argomenti importanti di crescita e di avanzamento per te e per il mondo.

0:00:08.360,0:00:12.960

Well, let’s start with this second module of the morning

 

0:00:13.340,0:00:17.680

Theme: Communication and Leadership

 

0:00:17.680,0:00:20.480

Our Master Lecture on Leadership

 

0:00:20.840,0:00:24.400

Leadership is a very broad and wide concept

 

0:00:24.400,0:00:29.340

We can say that generally Leadership is the ability to “drive people” (but there are several ways in doing it)

 

0:00:29.340,0:00:39.320

Some interpret Leadership in a way that we can call “Primal Leadership” mode (Level 1 of the Exa-Leadership Model)

 

0:00:39.760,0:00:42.680

the “Leadership of the Leader of the Tribe” or Leader of the Pack

 

0:00:42.900,0:00:45.920

The Alpha Male, or the Alpha Female

 

0:00:45.940,0:00:49.460

That is to say: Who is stronger, leads

 

0:00:49.460,0:00:52.160

In this modality, the position of Leader is acquired by fighting

 

0:00:52.160,0:00:56.800

and is held and kept by fighting, since there is always someone that wants to get it, to grab it, to steal it, ok?

 

0:00:56.800,0:01:00.560

I refer to this, in the HPM Model, as “Primal Leadership”

 

0:01:01.560,0:01:06.440

Second modality of viewing Leadership is a Psychoenergetic Leadership (Level 2 of the Exa-Leadership Model)

 

0:01:06.920,0:01:09.880

That is, the superiority of Mental Energies

 

0:01:11.900,0:01:17.540

I like an example, Stephen Hawking, that is a leader in the field of Astrophysics

 

0:01:17.780,0:01:22.820

one of several leaders, an incredibly charismatic person,

 

0:01:22.820,0:01:24.580

he did incredible things,

 

0:01:24.580,0:01:27.220

he revolutionized the world of Physics

 

0:01:27.220,0:01:29.360

but he is paralyzed.

 

0:01:29.360,0:01:32.720

We cannot talk in this case of a Primal Leadership,

 

0:01:32.720,0:01:37.280

it’s not his body the source of inspiration for people, it’s his Mind

 

0:01:37.840,0:01:42.080

and mainly his capacity to continue working

 

0:01:42.080,0:01:46.160

in conditions in which 99.99% of other people would have quit

 

0:01:46.160,0:01:49.840

and would have quit not only today, but tens of years ago.

 

0:01:49.840,0:01:54.560

So, there is also a Leadership on the front of the Motivational Side.

 

0:01:54.560,0:01:58.800

The capacity to motivate themselves and auto-motivate others.

 

0:01:59.540,0:02:04.500

Than we have a third level of leadership, the Leadership of the Specialist (Level 3, Micro-Leadership Level in the Exa-Leadership Model)

 

0:02:04.500,0:02:09.000

So, if we have on example a Surgical Operating Room within a Hospital

 

0:02:09.000,0:02:16.000

you would see that in a Surgical Operating Room there is a specific time-frame that we can identify as “Leadership of the Anesthesiologist”,

 

0:02:16.000,0:02:20.000

in other words, the best in the team in doing anesthesia, leads. He drives the action.

 

0:02:20.000,0:02:21.500

Nobody can interfere with his decisions (on what to do and how to do his job as specialist)

 

0:02:21.500,0:02:24.060

because he is THE specialist.

 

0:02:24.060,0:02:30.180

Than, we’ll have a Leadership Phase of the Surgeon,

 

0:02:30.260,0:02:36.300

than, when you return in your room, there will be a Leadership Phase of the Head Nurse, and so on.

 

0:02:36.920,0:02:41.560

That is to say, the Third Level of Leadership is a Leadership Mode that is very focused on Micro-Skills, Micro-abilities (Leadership of the Specialist, Level 3 of the Exa-Leadership Model)…

 

0:02:41.580,0:02:45.600

…you have a Micro-Skill, you can do some things better than others

 

0:02:45.900,0:02:50.500

and you become the Leader, a Situational Leader, let’s call it this way.

 

0:02:51.200,0:02:52.420

4th Level.

 

0:02:52.420,0:02:55.620

Always referring to the HPM Model of Leadership

 

0:02:55.740,0:02:59.320

… it is a “Leadership of the Big Picture” (the capacity to see the big picture)

 

0:03:00.320,0:03:03.340

which is based on Macro-Skills (Level 4 of the Exa-Leadership Model)

 

0:03:03.340,0:03:09.480

What I am saying, is that it could be the case of a CEO,

 

0:03:09.480,0:03:14.020

who is not necessarily the best or most skilled of the company in the field of Marketing,

 

0:03:14.200,0:03:17.540

he is also not the best in Administration, or as Buyer, and in Logistics,

 

0:03:17.760,0:03:19.960

but he can coordinate all these Corporate Areas.

 

0:03:20.180,0:03:24.580

He must have a good knowledge of the various organizational areas,

 

0:03:24.700,0:03:28.820

without pretending to be the best in all of them.

 

0:03:30.000,0:03:35.160

So he has the ability to “cover” several areas and to “supervise” them.

 

0:03:35.160,0:03:41.800

This (Level 4 in the Exa-Leadership Model) is another and different Leadership modality, the capacity to “supervise” processes (Supervisory Leadership).

 

0:03:41.800,0:03:51.080

For coaching and counseling, this is very interesting, since a coach and a counselor can really be “supervisors” of client’s processes,

 

0:03:51.080,0:03:54.260

processes that the person can deal and bring ahead also together with other professionals,

 

0:03:54.880,0:04:01.880

on example, lawyers, supposing that in a marital separation there might be the need of a specific legal skills in some stages of the process….

 

0:04:02.240,0:04:07.740

… or processes that the person brings ahead with medical doctors, with other professional roles,

 

0:04:07.920,0:04:18.360

always keeping in mind that someone has to maintain a “helicopter view” of the whole process that the person is trying to carry out

 

0:04:18.380,0:04:27.740

And now, the 5th. The Fifth modality of looking at leadership is the Leadership of Project Management, the “Leadership of Projectuality”

 

0:04:28.020,0:04:31.380

What does it mean to be “Leader in Projectuality”?

 

0:04:32.540,0:04:38.260

It means to be that person that is able to transform an idea into a “To Do List”

 

0:04:38.260,0:04:40.740

the list of things that have do be done

 

0:04:41.580,0:04:45.640

So, a person that transforms a dream

 

0:04:45.840,0:04:48.880

into a project and into a “To Do List”

 

0:04:48.880,0:04:51.440

defining “Who” “Does What” and “When”

 

0:04:53.620,0:05:01.000

There are people that are extremely able in intervening inside an idea or a project

 

0:05:01.580,0:05:07.920

they might not bring any real creativity, but are able to set times, methods, procedures

 

0:05:08.180,0:05:12.600

and in assigning tasks, delegation and responsibilities

 

0:05:12.640,0:05:17.680

This is a Projectuality Leadership (5th Level in the Exa Leadership Model)

 

0:05:18.720,0:05:28.140

This applies to any field. On example in a kitchen, a Project Leadership becomes the ability to know what ingredients are needed and when to use them

 

0:05:28.140,0:05:32.860

and very likely the dish or recipe might have been decided by others. Project leadership has nothing to do with “generating” ideas but in getting things done

 

0:05:33.100,0:05:39.320

Than we have the Sixth and higher Level of Leadership (Level 6 in the Exa-Leadership Model): “Spiritual Leadership”

 

0:05:39.720,0:05:46.440

I can cite as examples Gandhi, Buddha,

 

0:05:46.900,0:05:53.900

I could quote any person that someone can consider to be a “Charismatic Leader” for the value that he/she expresses

 

0:05:54.560,0:05:58.880

for the “Values” and not for his/her physical power or physical strength,

 

0:05:58.960,0:06:02.440

and not for a capacity in Project Management, but for the Values.

 

0:06:02.480,0:06:07.920

So, Spiritual Leaders are those in which we recognize values

 

0:06:07.920,0:06:13.280

we recognize ourselves in those values, we nourish ourselves with those values

 

0:06:13.380,0:06:16.020

those values inspire us in improving us

 

0:06:16.020,0:06:22.340

they inspire us in growing again, in changing the world, or in leaving a better human race behind us

 

0:06:22.340,0:06:24.340

This is a Spiritual Leadership

 

0:06:24.740,0:06:26.840

and now you imagine

 

0:06:27.360,0:06:31.000

That these 6 Leadership Levels

 

0:06:31.080,0:06:33.980

can be singularly present

 

0:06:33.980,0:06:39.660

on example, in having a Leader that has one specific strong trait among 6 highlighted (and might be weak on others)

 

0:06:39.660,0:06:44.140

and with that single strong trait, he will be able to do great things

 

0:06:44.140,0:06:48.620

or a Leader that has 2 strong traits, or 3 strong traits, or even more, up to 6

 

0:06:48.620,0:06:59.740

so we have a view of Leadership Styles based on the analysis of which typical “strong trait” a leader is using (within the Exa-Leadership Model)

 

0:06:59.780,0:07:03.700

so, if we look at Leader (among political Leaders) as Putin

 

0:07:04.000,0:07:08.400

you will see a Primal Leadership in action, a “bodily leadership”

 

0:07:08.400,0:07:14.480

expressed in the “walking style”, in the way to stare or look at the counterparts in the eyes, an almost “challenging mode”

 

0:07:14.480,0:07:21.480

a “Leadership of the Fighter” (ps. Putin is also a Judo Black Belt and his Martial past and history made an imprinting into his bodily style)

 

0:07:21.480,0:07:23.240

than. you will see in him also other Leadership levels in action, but this is a very typical case of Primal Leadership Style

 

0:07:23.240,0:07:32.440

If we went to analyze e.g. Gandhi, we could not talk about a form of Primal Leadership (Level 1), but instead of a Spiritual Leadership (Level 6)

 

0:07:32.820,0:07:38.220

If we observe a Master in Martial Arts,

 

0:07:38.480,0:07:47.340

we will very often see a leader in the Macro Skills (level 4) that are needed

 

0:07:47.540,0:07:51.320

and hopefully also in the Projectuality (Level 5), in the Skills that are needed to be able to take an athlete

 

0:07:51.740,0:07:55.520

and make him improve along the areas in which he has gaps and needs to improve

 

0:07:55.960,0:07:59.360

Clearly, however, if in a (Martial Arts) Gym happens that

 

0:07:59.680,0:08:04.320

the Master adopts a Self Perception of Primal Leader

 

0:08:04.340,0:08:08.340

that will mean that the Master will beat everybody in the Gym

 

0:08:08.340,0:08:12.500

he will attempt to show his power and his territory by “kicking everybody’s ass”

 

0:08:12.500,0:08:19.500

as the Alpha Monkey does within a tribe of Monkeys, where he – each now and then – attacks those who pass too close,

 

0:08:19.500,0:08:23.100

just to show that he is the Alpha Male and Leader of the Tribe

 

0:08:23.100,0:08:29.980

In another (Martial Arts) Gym, we could instead have someone who uses a Spiritual Leadership (level 6)

 

0:08:29.980,0:08:32.280

conducted by means of meditation session, reflective activities,

 

0:08:32.380,0:08:35.840

acting as Counselor and as Coach in helping his students

 

0:08:35.840,0:08:39.680

very probably without any need to demonstrate his skills

 

0:08:39.680,0:08:46.680

and even having much lower bodily skills of his students, it does not matter since his Leadership is on the Spiritual Side, not on the Body Side, he is the “Spiritual Glue” of his group

 

0:08:46.680,0:08:55.340

So leadership has a lot to do with the ability to let a group become what that grup might become

 

0:08:55.340,0:08:59.460

or in helping a person in growing, achieving his/her Personal Development and improve him/herself

 

0:08:59.460,0:09:03.380

and this is the really most profound meaning of Leadership

Train the mind as a muscle, and tune up your left prefrontal cortex

© Article by Dr. Daniele Trevisani – http://www.danieletrevisani.com – Copyright. Adapted from the book The Soul Box. Ancient Wisdom meets Human Potential Research. Thoughts for Self-Expression, Inner Energy and Life

1329060886_samuraitraining_2554088586

Neuroscience research tells us that our brain is like a muscle. The parts that are more often used do enlarge, get fitter, and become more agile and fast. The parts that are underused become smaller, slower, as if they were mummified.

The stimuli that change our brain can be those that come from any day, any hour of the day, any moment in life. Scientific studies that show how plastic the brain is, responding quickly and changing its structure in response to both real-life stimuli and artificial stimuli (magnetic stimulation)[1].

So what should we do? Human brain has a Left Prefrontal Cortex that has the ability to perceive positive things in our world and in what surrounds us (positive perception) and a Right Prefrontal Cortex that is very good at detecting what is wrong, negative, and the ability of feeling pessimistic emotions. The continuous flow of anxiogenic news, movies, messages, the continuous subliminal message to “become rich and famous or you are a loser” are lies that pump your right cortex and kill you. We must stay away from these messages, as if they were toxic, radioactive, and poisonous.

Even talking about negative topics and bad news during a dinner can pump your “negative” side of the brain while a dinner or eating should be a pleasure and a restful pause.

But besides specific moments, your whole life is constellated by messages, ads, movies, and people that are lying to you.

The very fact of telling you that money and status will decide whether you made it or not, is a lie that trains your right prefrontal cortex every minute of every day. You become extremely good at feeling what you have not yet done.

You start to believe that people that are on tv or became famous or very rich “have made it” without realizing that their inner experience of life can be miserable, most of them are severely depressed and unhappy people.

We could make a huge list of rich and famous people (artists, movie stars, entrepreneurs) who killed themselves or died from self-intoxication from drugs and alcohol, at the peak of their career and money possession.

Michael Jackson in music, Marilyn Monroe among actresses, the cyclist champion Marco Pantani, the member of the richest Italian family Edoardo Agnelli (Fiat) who, despite the richness and enormity of opportunities, suffered from depression and jumped from a highway. Should we judge these unlucky people “arrived”? “Arrived” where? Who has the arrogance decide for you and to tell you what makes you “arrived”?

The more you think about bad news and consider the wrong part of existence, the more you train to suffer.

You also become insensitive towards the little good things that you did or happened in your day, even the most subtle positive things. You need more and more results to feel happy, more and more money to feel rich, and at the end you always you feel that “something is still missing to be really happy”

This system can make you anxious and feel always inadequate, always out-of-place in your world, always poor. A system designed to make you feel a loser is sick, is a lie.

If you look at the lives of the richest people in terms of money, so many of them are so depressed and so many of them do suicide and are into drugs, that you should wonder if they really “made it”. Made it to get insane and unhealthy and miserable? Yes, they made it. But when it is the turn to see if they made it in being good people, good fathers or mothers, people with a sense of love for life, a strong spiritual life, an inner and self-sustaining force inside, they “didn’t make it” at all. They are miserable inside.

When you lose sight of the miracles that life provides to a living soul, even the mere fact of being able to “think” should surprise you, and make us incredibly happy. The very fact of waking up, being alive, breathe once again, is a miracle.

Don’t spit on miracles. Live them.

The endless fight between Energy and Fears

It’s better to light a lamp, than to curse the darkness .
Lao Tzu

Every day you get up. And every day you fight a battle.

Sometimes you even realize that you’re fighting, sometimes you are anesthetized and do not feel it, but the fight continues, always. Deep forces face each other within us. In the depths of our hearts, two entities, two dragons, forces or titans … no matter how you want to call, are struggling for the victory. They are the Energies and the Fears.

  • The first warrior is our Personal Energy, physical and mental, our determination, ability, enthusiasm, physical power and mental toughness. This side of life also comprises good, generative, positive thoughts and ideas. It is the metaphor of the Light, the Good, and Life.
  • The other side is the land of Fears, darkness, pain, anxiety, oppressive ideologies, and the formidable challenges that life poses us. This side comprises difficulties, negative ideas, wrong beliefs that try to grab you and push you down, or make you turn back, and slow our attempt to advance. As illusory or real these forces might be, they erode our instinct towards self-expression in life and inhibit our hunger for freedom.

In fairy tales and myths, this struggle is represented as the metaphor of the Hero’s Journey, where life becomes a series of tests that the Hero must take to assert himself in the world.

And we, tiny creatures among millions of stars in the universe, immersed in this fight, what can we do? Well, let me say: a lot! We could first install a mental radar that goes in search of the negative ideas that circulate in our minds. Negative beliefs, once exposed, identified become enemies. And you can finally fight.

Intelligence is useful for survival if we can extinguish a bad idea before the bad idea extinguishes us

Karl Popper

Another fundamental operation is to open our minds towards the entrance of good, positive ideas, new visions, new learning, and let in fresh water from a thousand brooks. It can be a journey, a book, an enlightened person to listen. Any source of learning moves our energy-balance towards the side of light and weakens the darkness.

The mind that opens to a new idea never returns to the previous dimension.

Albert Einstein

Each person accepts or not the challenges that life poses, based on the “internal state” the he/she is living, the state of physical and mental power and energy, and this is related to how our “inner balance”, works, and the accuracy of our mental radar.

Our mind weighs perceived energies and perceived fears, then decides.

Who is able to do mental cleansing and re-charge his/her energy, becomes powerful beyond measure, up to the point of actively seeking challenging projects. An energetic person will seek challenges in which to apply the energies that feels, the resources that he/she possesses.

This applies to athletes, martial artists, fighters in life, even to a couple who decides to give birth to children in this rotten world, knowing that eventually the light will prevail or at least that this possibility exists.

The challenges always teach.

Those that we accept but also those who do not accept.

Fears are growing in us. Some are motivated and useful to save our lives. Driving without paying attention to the road needs to become something that we fear, and it must be something that generates awareness of the danger. This is not a pathological fear, but fear to drive – the pure fear of driving, is a debilitating fear, something to get rid of.

 

When you are ready to die you will be ready to live.

Sitting Bull (1831 – 1890), tribal chief of the Hunkpapa Sioux (Lakota).

Those who live within completely unmotivated fears, carry exhausting rocks in their backpack. Misconceptions, wrong fears, become unnecessary weight to be disposed of as soon as possible. The fear to try a different career, fear of failure in a project, the fear of public speaking, fear of trying new roads.

As in a fairy tale, epic confrontation between these two forces never ends, within us and outside us.

We must look for some positive challenges. It becomes a positive challenge to remove the suffering to every child on the planet.

It becomes a challenge to remove from ourselves the fears of which we can do without, and learn to live fully.

Living fully means to decide what deserves to be a part of our lives and what does not. Do not let it decide to the mass, to others, to a TV program, or ignorance.

It is necessary to do this cleaning every day. It ‘a daily exercise of mental autonomy, freedom at the liquid state. A fighter does not remain standing waiting to be struck without reacting, he/she will use every technique, every energy, every tactic, to win the match. This is also true in life.

So we will fight every day this struggle for freedom.

And we are proud of this.

 

Destiny is not written, it is what we create.

(John Connor) from the movie Terminator Salvation
