(funny improv interaction with Al Gore starting at 5:15)
What are you going to focus on?
Right now, you have to decide what you’re going to focus on. In this second, consciously or unconsciously. The minute you decide to focus on something you’ve got to give it a meaning, and whatever that meaning is produces emotion. Is this the end or the beginning? Is God punishing me or rewarding me, or is this the roll of the dice? An emotion, then, creates what we’re going to do or the action.
It’s not about resources , it’s about resourcefulness , the EMOTION behind.
Shape the STATE that you are in: Focus -> Meaning -> Emotion -> Action
