An Letter from my friend Robin Sharma including —The War Measures Manual

Frustration is the child of stagnation.

We are most alive when we are making progress [even micro-progress] in the direction of ideals that excite us.

Our spirits take flight when we stand steadfast along the path of the mighty mission and heroic ideals that call out the finest within us.

And when we exercise our native creativity to make things that help others, push our craft to the jagged edges of its farthest limits and lean into what frightens us.

It’s an interesting time we live in Suresh…

…a pandemic ravages lives, businesses and economies.

…social injustices that have been going on for far too long are causing deep upheaval as we are weary of seeing our brothers and sisters mistreated.

…social media addicts us, providing an escape from a tumultuous reality.

…uncertainty and volatility overwhelms many of us.

And yet there is a beautiful solution to all of this…

…retreat from the world (at least more often) and find that place of creativity, courage and serenity that sits at the root of every human soul. [I’ve been spending more time in silence, prayer and contemplation than ever before].

…reorder your days to clear out complexity, remove toxic negativity and release all mediocrity. You become your ecosystem. Purify your environment and your positivity and performance will rise. I’m writing a lot about this in my new book which is now on round #8 of refining. I’m doing my best to get it to you as soon as I can.

…remove the resistance to standing on the fires of the discomfort that is—in truth—nothing more than your growth coming to get you.

Life’s just too short to get caught up in the frustration of living each day in the same way—with no real creative fire, personal inspiration and authentic productivity.

Please don’t live the same week five thousand times and call it a life.

Three quick suggestions for you:

1. Learn my new Trinity of Vitality Model to multiply your energy and stamina. For now, I’ll simply suggest that you explore intermittent fasting, become a sleep expert so you recover better, delete sugar from your diet and get serious about home cooking [so you’re not polluting your body with processed goods]. Food is medicine. Your nutrition and hydration affect your energy, mood and productivity. So dial it in well.

2. Do a Personal Progress Inventory where you list all the ways you’ve advanced over the past 7 months of 2020, from your craft and any business wins to the human growth you’ve earned. This will create confidence as well as momentum. Even in the upheaval that is this year, you can find a ton of tiny triumphs to celebrate. And the more you actively cherish your progress, the more you’ll turn adversity into precious opportunity.

3. Turn off all notifications on your phone as the distraction and interruption they generate is costing you a fortune. I also recommend that you turn off your phone at 8PM each night and ease into an excellent pre-sleep routine. And read the news just once a week. Its job is to scare and addict you versus to introduce you to all the good things happening. And unfolding.

It looks like the second waves and “re-lockdowns” will happen for a while.

All the closures will likely create The Mother of All Recessions. Or what some economists are calling The Greater Depression.

I get that it’s easy to worry and fret about the future.

Yet I must enthusiastically share that what makes us human is our ability to invent. And to endure. And to overcome.

I pray you will leverage this season to reaccess the bigness, honour, kindness and strength that I know is you at your best.

It’s the best time I’ve ever known to build your most exceptional you. And to upgrade your skills. And to lead your field.

This is a fine stage to x10 your dedication to personal mastery. And to lean out expenses. And to reorder your priorities. And to build an even better business. That moves quicker and serves more people.

I am bullish on the future. I am on fire to help you make this surprising time the greatest time of your life (yet). And I am here to encourage your ideals.

Hope all this helps you Suresh.

Better days are coming. Use this stormy season to grow, strengthen and serve.

Love + respect,

Robin

Our Plans

  • Centenary Park Residents Webpage is designed to highlight service delivery and crime related issues facing the community
  • We also plan for Safety and Security – Community Safety Plan – CSP

We wish to address issues relating to the current reactive security model….security companies sitting under trees in their vehicles and reacting to crime at the one place the criminal is no longer at. We require a proactive patrolling solution.

We wish to join any incongruency between the Political Wards, the Police Precincts and Sectors and Metro Police Wards
