How Are You? How Do You Do? What's Your Common Response to ThisQuestion?
In the vast majority of cases, our physical tiredness is not really a physical problem; we are simply suffering from mental exhaustion, sometimes known as "stinkin' thinkin." Here's an example (you men who read this will relate to this example better than the ladies).
The day has been one of "those" days, all day long, and everything that could go wrong has gone wrong. One frustrating event has piled on top of yet another frustrating event. At the end of the day, you stagger home, too tired to put one foot in front of the other.
Your wife greets you cheerfully and enthusiastically, expressing her delight in the fact that you are not late in getting home, since this is "the" day. You wearily inquire, "What day?" Your wife eagerly responds that this is the day that six weeks ago you had set aside to clean the garage. You feebly protest that you cannot put one foot in front of the other. Your wife promises to help but again you deny the presence of energy.
However, at that precise instance the telephone rings and the voice at the other end says to you, "Hey, pardner, I've got a tee time at the country club in fifteen minutes. We still have time to get in nine holes before dark, if you can make it.: All of a sudden the tiredness disappears and you enthusiastically respond that you'll be there in ten minutes.
In one form or another, the above example recurs millions of times every day. The point is simple; when you reinforce your feeling of tiredness by acknowledging it, you further reduce your energy reserve. Visualize yourself enjoying the task, and you'll be amazed at how much more energy you have.
You see, the moment you've been waiting for is now! You just have to feel and get energized with the thought! Do not be deceived by the cunning of your mind (lazy mind), train it and make it positive. Every morning is another reason to be inspired.
So today, tell yourself this "Every time I am asked, "How are you?", I will respond with "Super good, but I'll get better!"
