Last week, I shared with you how my addiction to excessive consumption was actually a symptom of a fear driven life. I then challenged you to tackle a process to begin shifting your perspective. You should now have created a list of what and who is surrounding you. The easiest way to complete this task was to focus on your direct surroundings at any given time, but to really challenge yourself I encourage to to continue with the exercise when you are in other environments. I even challenge you to attempt to do this on a bigger scale. Asking yourself, what is beyond your direct view? What objects and people matter to you that are not in your immediate surrounding right now.
This week’s exercise includes two parts to begin answering the question of, why do these objects and people really matter? To do this, you need to be able to:
Recognize that you solely make these objects and people matter; and
Recognize that you don’t really understand why they matter.
Donuts, are a perfect example
