Mind Over Matter... How Our Mental State Creates Our Lives

Recently a friend of mine, who is 84 years old, crashed one of his planes and walked away with minimal injuries, just a few scratches on his nose! Yes! I just said, an 84-year-old man crashed a plane and walked away barely scathed! After the crash, he was transported to the hospital. The following day a friend of mine and I went for a visit. While we were visiting him, I was showing his wife a picture of his plane that had been posted on Facebook. She took my phone, walked over to him and showed him the picture.

The words that followed out of his mouth were and I quote, “Ohhh, I can put that back together.” My point here is, what is Your state of mind? Is it negative or positive? Is it complaining and whining or is it optimistic and filed with tenacity? The only thing my friend was complaining about was wanting to get out of the hospital and go home. He had been placed in the ICU upon being released from the ER; I mean, he did crash a Fa-Rekin plane!!! However, all he wanted to do was get home, so he could start putting it back together!

So… If you were in a plane crash, regardless of your age, would you survive it…barely scathed?! The “plane crash” here can also be used as a euphemism for situations that happen in our every-day lives. How many “plane crashes” do you survive barely scathed on a daily basis? Our state of mind and how we “show up” in the world is in direct correlation to how amazing or not so amazing our lives are. My friend is one of these unique people who would most likely tell you that his life is amazing because he lives his life to the fullest, doing every day, that which makes him happy! He never developed the mentality of, “well, I’m too old to do what I did in my younger days.” I am almost positive that when this guy leaves this world, he’s going to leave doing what makes him happy and nothing less!
