Ok I Gotta Say This

But not sure how.  It’s kinda deep, and yet it’s not. It’s important, but most don’t see it.

Why? because people are afraid.  Fear is a survival tactic that was bestowed on early humans to help them avoid being eaten. What caveman wouldn’t want that?

Want you to know, upfront, that this has only been a revelation in the last year or so for me. And it is the five-a-day blog writing that has awakened the truth. And the truth is, most of us lack courage.

There are true alpha dogs in the human pack, but not nearly as many as you might think.  I digress.

Ever listen to people offering advice about what’s important? Next time listen more closely.

Do you hear them using their own examples, struggles, triumphs,? Or do they use someone else’s?  Or maybe no examples at all, just theory?

My theory is not much has changed since we lived in caves, except fewer of us get eaten when we walk outside.

Pushy?

Pushy?

I don’t want to push anyone who doesn’t want to be pushed.

And yet, there is a certain human instinct in all of us, I believe.  

In fact, there are actually a multitude of instinctual impulses, or desires, in our human brains.

The one I’m referring to now is the one that has to do with being pushed.

There are most likely exceptions, but I think that humans actually want someone to push them, to challenge them, to help them see things they can’t yet see, or do things they can’t yet do.

Seriously.

I know it may sound crazy, but deep down, I believe that you believe this too.

It’s for this reason that I’d like to steer you to Lane 8.org for today’s look at a subconscious yearning.

The stronger and faster a cave man was, the more likely he could find and subdue (kill) an edible animal.

This led to a meal, which lead to sustenance, which gave strength to survive another day in a harsh environment.

After telling you all that, may I please wish you a great weekend, full of whatever brings you peace, joy and love. 

But please, by all means, visit your grocery store to get you next meal.  🙂

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
