Its Tough Being Unplugged

On the first time hearing the metaphors of our food industry and our traditional job force industry compared to being “The Matrix”, fashioned after the popular movie series, it immediately resonated and made so much sense. Just talking about being unplugged even scares some people away, let alone actually being unplugged…its tough! This unplugged means going against the norms, breaking free from daily mundane cycles, and actually acquiring knowledge or experience to learn to do better for yourself.

Now, that is a cool cartoon video shining light on our current farming industry and why we really have to be better informed with the things we eat, where they come from, and how it is made.

Why is this so important? Because if you aren’t informed of the whole other world that is out there, then you can’t possibly aspire to live in it and that in itself can be damaging to your health and quality of life. If you accept that when you get old it is the norm to be on multiple medications, have tons of immobilizing aches and pains, not being able to take care of yourself, and not having teeth then that is what you’ll expect to be like. But if you open your eyes and look at those who are 100 years old and have all their teeth or 90 years old and still traveling the world or 85 years old and running in marathons or competing in triathlons then you’ll see there is so much more to this thing called life.

There was this success CD playing, from a big name in business and leading entrepreneur, and he said “If someone else has done it, well then so can you. Nobody was given less or more of anything, it is just what you do with what you are given.” Think about that for a minute. Why do we often see someone else’s success and think , well good for them but I couldn’t do that or I’m not as smart as them or dedicated or whatever it is that the voice in your head says? It is absolutely possible. This can relate to personal goals, business goals, career changes with great success, health and weight loss goals, and fitness goals.

So now that you know, you have no excuse. You have to at least try. They say most people give up before they even start. Imagine what it would be like to start and just decide that no matter how long it takes, you just don’t give up. Wow, how exciting that would be…you’d be destined for success in accomplishing whatever you started out to do. Every time you fail and get back up to try again you learn something new to put forth a different kind of effort or you made a little bit more happen towards your end goal, you just aren’t there yet but failing forward is succeeding. Did you know that it took Thomas Edison 1000 tries before he got the light bulb to work?! Where would our society be right now without that 1001 trial? Its never too late to start or to try something new and different. Thomas Edison would never be seen as a failure now, but he sure did seem crazy around that first couple of hundred times im sure, let alone at 999. But he did not give up!

 Thomas Edison’s teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was fired from his first two jobs for being “non-productive.” As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”

This quote taken from the website: “But they did not give up!” Check it out:


Unplugging is hard work, but somebody has to do it…let it be you. No worries, we got you.
