The Time Is Now

There are a few sayings that I remind myself of regularly.

  1. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

  2. Life is a boomerang effect and what you speak repeats.  

  3. What you believe you achieve.

Words, what we think, and what we speak shape the lives we find ourselves in. What we say to ourselves, what we speak aloud, shapes the lives we have.


Until you accept total and complete responsibility for every aspect of your life, including your words, (thought, and spoken), your life will send you experiences designed to get your attention.  In other words, you will keep going around that same mountain.


I've started a training series on Attention Bias to help people understand that what we pay the most attention to grows. Yet, more often than not the things we neglect, the little things, are the most significant in helping us live in the present moment and obtain the life we truly desire.


One of my favorite books is, "The Power of Now," by Eckhart Tolle. In the book, Tolle guides the reader through the present moment and how we learn to interact with ourselves to obtain the love, peace, joy, and happiness we all desire. According to Tolle, only the present moment is real, and only the present moment matters, and both an individual's past and future are created by their thoughts.


Comedian Lily Tomlinson once said, "I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific."  


In life what you think about shows out!


I have learned that the Creator of the Universe acts on our every word.  If you say I want a job, husband, or a roof over my head you are just as likely to be working as a Walmart greeter, married to Bozo the clown, and living in a tent. 


When you know that in life words, (thought or spoken) are the mystery of all life, you will learn to be more careful with what you think and what you speak.  


When we learn to pay attention to the little things in our own lives, we can create the big lives we convince ourselves that we all want.


The little things in life can make a big difference.  


Don't believe me? Try sleeping with a mosquito. 

 

Attention Bias


What is attention bias? Attention bias is our tendency to prioritize certain types of stimuli/information over others. At any given moment, an individual's senses can perceive countless stimuli in our immediate surroundings. Threat-related attention bias refers to the tendency to prioritize the processing of threats over benign or neutral stimuli. Is it no wonder we have biases related to race, ethnicity, disability, and more?


Each of us individually generates more information than ever before in human history. We take in almost 90,000 pieces of information daily, yet our brains can only filter in about 10 percent of that information. The rest, well is stored in our subconscious minds and often when we perceive a threat we act upon it.


How do you perceive the world around you and how can you understand your attention bias?


 

The WEBB Advisory Group Presents



The WEBB Center For Social Impact was developed and designed from more than 50 years of lived experience as a Black Woman in America.


Focusing on domestic policy specifically, our institute provides a global worldview perspective for black and brown women from the diaspora living in America today.  

Using research data, lived experiences, and stories of impact, policymakers and leaders can understand the social impacts various policies have on black and brown children and women, today and tomorrow.  

In response to various incidents in our country's recent history, history mustn't repeat itself.  Therefore, the WEBB Center For Social Impact strives to provide voter information, information on issues for policymakers, information for community activists, and information for anyone who seeks to understand the social impacts of public policy on individuals and communities.
