Stand Up and Find the Object

If I am sitting on the couch and notice an object I thought was immediately closeby, seems now to have gone missing, I tell myself: "Stand up!" 

My ego argues back: " ... no just lift up your butt, feel under the cushions, lift the pieces of paper on the table, feel around, don't disturb your own comfortable seating arrangement." 

The longer I listen to my ego the more I delay finding the object.

Standing up, forces myself to a different perspective, access to logical sequencing and helpful memories.  Using this approach, I invariably find the object much more quickly (whether indeed it IS between the pillows or actually much further away).

Getting off your ass/ not taking the bait of comforting your ego, helps you improve your act by doing what works.

Stand up and find what is important to you.  


  1. 'Tis true. People's ego often does get in their way, and, more obviously, in other folk's way. Maybe mine does, too. I'm not really sure. My perspective to judge others is much more clear than my perspective to judge myself.

  2. Recently, the father of a young man insisted that his son would certainly NOT speak to me regardless of my intention to converse with him because he was sure his son was busy. Now as it turns out this father's declaration was unnecessarily insistent and negative and ... well, just plain wrong.

    Hmm, how curious that people insist on projecting negative future events!

    Oh, that's right, I am in the positive attitude business and other people often have other ways of thinking and speaking. (Good to know.)

    I hereby request technical support.
