Mobius Monday Minute
# 9 – Jan 10 , 2011
Mean is a word that can have some very diverse definitions, even alarming ones.
The first that might come to mind is the one associated with all the vile stuff we hear about on the evening newscast.
But that’s not what I want to talk about today. You get enough of that in other media so here’s a little break from all that.
The word I’m using today is just another way of saying medium. You know. Not too hot and not too cold but just right. Sort like Goldilocks and the 3 bears sort of thing.
This right in the middle thing is sometimes looked at as the “average” on a certain scale.
And while “average” can accurately describe the position of being in the middle there is another derivative of that word meridian.
This has a famous connection to it as in the prime meridian. This is the invisible line that runs north and south and divides the globe into two distinct hemispheres of east and west.
The prime meridian has a historical connection to the Royal Observatory in Greenwich in London. In fact it’s drawn right through the center of it. If you go there you’ll see a line painted on the floor.
This is the same observatory that used to be the keeper of the measuring of time for the rest of the known world. Greenwich “mean time” was the standard for the world’s clocks for many years until it was replaced by Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for scientific purposes.
But Greenwich mean time is still the time for you and me and is based on the sun’s position at a particular point as it passes over the earth’s meridian.
But what’s all this got to do with my main theme for this blog which is Mindset Immunity?
Glad you asked.
It appears that there is another important mean measurement term that I haven’t yet introduced you to.
I’ll refer to it as the “mood mean” It’s a state of mindset equilibrium. It’s kept nearest it’s middle point thanks to something I call mindset immunity.
Let me describe it this way.
The body maintains its temperature at approximately 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Much hotter than that and you probably should stay home and drink plenty of fluids. Colder than that and you’ll be in a chill that could have serious consequences unless you get yourself cozied up by the fire or head off to the nearest hot tub.
It’s well known that a natural state of good physical health is largely maintained by the built-in mechanism provided by the immune system. It automatically works on three levels:
- to protect
- to heal
- to remember
Mindset immunity provides similar protection except it does it for the thinking mindset. In other words it keeps your mood closer to “normal” so that you can function and make good sound decisions even in the face of ever-changing realities.
But there is a problem.
I believe that, the average human today has a mindset immunity that is moving at a snail’s pace. That account’s for why it takes so long for many of us to get over a situation that was not seen as positive.
But I’ve figured out a way to speed things up quickly and permanently. It’s a process that I call H.E.R.O.; an acronym for Honest Examination of Real Occurrences. It entails reverse-searching your past success history in a structured way in real-time in an on-line platform with a live guide to assist you.
Mindset immunity is everyone’s birthright. You have it now. All it needs is to get untied and it will do its magic as it should.
That means it can smooth out all those otherwise rough spots in your thinking so you have more energy to do better at living a quality life.
And that is no mean feat.
More power to you.
