Use Protection

Here’s Real-Life Lesson #3122 that I’ve taught to thousands of football players during my 40-season coaching career: Use Protection. Guard your mind from the daily, hourly, even moment-by-moment attack of poison and junk. Defend your mind from attempted murder brought on by the deluge of depression and negativity thrown at you from all directions. If you don’t use protection, your mind will get infected with intellectual and psychological disease that will put you at risk on any field and in any field.

People can lift us or limit us. The difference starts at the top with mindset. There are two types of mindset – Lifting Mindset or Limiting Mindset. Both have strong powers of persuasion. The Lifting Mindset strengthens. The Limiting Mindset weakens. The type of mindset that you and your team choose is the difference between first place and dead last. Which one you allow to influence you depends on your consent. You have authority to consent or reject information. The key is to use protection. Protect your mind from depressing news that attacks you every single day of your life. Using protection regulates access of the junk that can accumulate in your mind turning it into a human landfill site. Depressing people and depressing news add up like a heavy weight that can crush you.

Using protection protects you from becoming another depressing person who spreads depressing news that drops those around you down in the dumps. Using protection allows you to clean your mental environment, protecting it from the onslaught of depressing news that will eventually land you in a dark place.
