The worst passing attack is passing baseless judgments about others. Passing baseless judgments is a pastime with the bored, the uninformed, and the drama addicts. I firmly believe with all my heart that you have to bullet-proof your mind if you intend to achieve anything whatsoever because if you let poison into your head, you’ll lose your mind, do nothing, and get nowhere.
Bullet-proofing the mind from bullshit is easy because it’s simply a matter of choice. It takes fitness – exercise free will. Turn off the switch. Passing baseless judgments is a pastime for those who have too much free and a waste of time for those who listen to it. The amount of energy needed to process bullshit is greater than the energy needed to repel bullshit. It takes a lot less energy to build up a force-field than trying to digest mind-pollution.
Building a mental shield doesn’t just happen. It has to be built. One way is to never, ever lose your mind. Never lose your identity over bullshit. Never let bullshit change your true self. Never let small-minded, pettiness rob you of becoming everything you can become. Never let meaningless chatter stand in the way of reaching your goals. Once you lose your mind, it’s replaced by someone else’s mind, a mind that doesn’t fit. The resulting misfit is painful. It’s impossible to score a passing grade by wasting time and energy on bullshit.
