*Professor Paul*

All right, let's go ahead and begin episode number 101, of Morning Mindset. Yes, now we officially have more than 100 episodes in the can. I'm your host Paul Markel and thank you for taking the time to join me today. Also, thank you to everyone in the last 24 hours or so who has gone to Amazon and picked up the book “Morning Mindset: A 30 Day Plan for More Positive and Productive Life”.

-

How easy is that? All right hard reality makes soft people uncomfortable. Oh I have this maybe it's a reputation. Maybe it's a habit of saying hard truths of speaking hard truths or addressing reality and it's reality that makes people uncomfortable. I've been told by my spouse on more than one occasion that well.

-

Yeah, that might be true honey, but people don't want to hear that because it makes them uncomfortable. It's easy to find the soft people in your life or it's easy to discover the soft weak people in your life. The people that do not have hard moral courage because when you bring up reality you bring up hard reality, it makes them feel uncomfortable and they don't want to talk about it.

-

Now that’s something that you probably don't want to talk about. But it is a fact the recent murders at the Parkland Florida high school, during the recent murders and what we found and what we discovered in the after action is that the state the the school district the sheriff's department and even the FBI all of them knew that the murderer.

-

Was a bad person they knew that they were a dangerous person. They actually had information that this person was planning to commit this crime and yet they took no proactive steps to stop it from happening. And then while it was happening, it was allowed to continue because those who were supposed to be the Guardians of the people stayed outside, and hid and took cover and when I mentioned this, someone was like, “You know, people don't want to hear that. Uh, yeah, it's easier to say guns are bad. We shouldn't have guns and no one should have guns and Guns and guns are bad.: But the hard reality is that those whose job it is supposedly ostensibly to be our protectors.

-

To stop things like this from happening to catch bad people and if you know, they can't catch them beforehand while they're in the ACT to stop them failed completely and it makes people uncomfortable makes them feel uncomfortable the soft people. They don't like that. They don't want to hear that now conversely when you address hard reality.

-

Hard truth if you're able to address it, if you're able to accept it, even though it's not a nice thing what that can do for you is make you stronger. It can make you more better prepared or more well prepared to deal with the harsh realities that life is someday going to hand you. As long as you're alive on planet Earth in this big blue ball is spinning around and around at some point in time.

-

You are going to encounter difficulty. You're going to encounter hardship. You may even encounter a life-or-death situation that requires your attention. Now, if you are one of the soft people the aforementioned saw people and hard realities. Such as the fact that there are hundreds if not thousands of paroled felons violent paroled felons who are on quote supervise adult probation living in your city.

-

When you go to a restaurant a gas station a Walmart or whatever. Your favorite shopping place is the chances that there are going to be uh hardcore violent felons, who are on. Only release or supervise the dough probation right there standing in the aisle right there in the the Frozen Foods. I standing in line at the the gas station to pay for whatever, uh, they're there and they're all around you now soft people don't like think about that because it makes them uncomfortable but hard people who can accept that can prepare themselves for the reality.

-

That they may have to protect themselves and their families. So on one hand, you have those who want to whistle past the graveyard and “I don't want to talk about that” and we don't want to think about that because it just it just makes us uncomfortable. Well that may be the case. But how is that preparing you to deal with the very harsh reality of the world?

-

Pretending that it doesn't happen or saying that you don't want to talk about it because it makes you feel uncomfortable. It's not going to prepare you on the other hand on a good note. If you are able to address it accept it and figure out a way to prepare for it. You'll be a more well-rounded and prepared individual.

-

Alright, ladies and gentlemen, that's all I have for you today. Uh, remember the book “Morning Mindset: A 30 Day Plan for More Positive and Productive Life” is available right now on Amazon and I would really appreciate it and Amazon would appreciate it and my family would appreciate it. If those of you who have already ordered the book after you've had a chance to read it and examine it and you know, leave us a little bit of review leave a review on Amazon let other people. I'm your host Paul Markel, and I'll talk to you again real soon.
