Today you can travel around the world faster than it takes to visit the public library or the small bookshop around the corner. Ah – technology and the internet.

What a time-saver! But it has its drawback too. Like the many distractions that waste all the time we should be saying with modern technology; for example television, video grams, music, and of course we can’t forget the internet. I’m guessing – the average Dominican reads two chapters of a book per year. That’s right. Not even one whole book!

As a young lady growing up, my mom (Jennifer Daisy) had to walk for miles, just to borrow a good book, and she would stay up all night reading. To-this-day, I’m still amazed at the amount of information she retained just by reading. Growing up in a poor family, reading was one of the only ways I could travel the world in my own imaginative mind. It wasn’t until her late forties; when my mom received her Associates Degree in Tourism and Hospitality.

Education is more than a college degree. It is a life-long pursuit! As an adult, don’t be fooled into thinking everything worth reading should be read before graduation. And as a parent, don’t mortgage the future of your children by allowing them to waste their most critical years of development on trivialities. Create a reader-friendly environment in the home, and don’t just read – study.

In a way, it’s hard not to be a little envious of my mom, and the broad knowledge she have gain from reading. On the other hand, we’re a position where we can experience the best of both worlds. We can use technology to do greater things in shorter periods of time—and then dedicate free time to do more reading.

One of the traps that’s easy to fall into is filling your life with too many incompatibilities – places, objects, activities, people, and circumstances that we just don’t mesh with the person you’re on the inside. Not too long ago a good friend of mine realized that he had surrounded himself with so many incompatibilities – in his relationships, job and activities. Shame to say, but a lot of us are just tolerating certain aspects in our daily life – even if we know that it’s not who we’re inside.

When your external reality is out of sync with your inner self, your inner self will refuse to give in to it. This creates the feeling of wanting to escape your circumstances. You’ll fantasize about quitting you job, moving out, ending a relationship(s). You may feel powerless to make big changes, but deep down you’ll still sense a strong desire to “get out” and leave parts of your reality behind.

Like my friend, it’s easy to lose years of your life while surrounded by incompatible energies. In fact this problem is so common that some people just consider it normal. They figure it’s normal to dread going to work or to feel disconnected from the people around them. This may be common, but it certainly isn’t a healthy situation.

Look at the different parts of your life — your career, health, relationships, spiritual practice, daily habits, and finances — and ask yourself these questions, “Is this really me?” do you hear some no’s? How long have you been tolerating these incompatibilities?

Some people think it’s a good thing to tolerate the parts of life they don’t like. I think personally that’s stupid. Tolerance isn’t acceptance. Tolerance is resistance.

When you fill your life with energies you must tolerate, you prevent yourself from attracting what you really want. The more incompatibilities you tolerate in your life, the fewer compatibilities you’ll be able to attract and enjoy. Keep this up for a few years, and you’ll be drowning in a life that feels totally wrong for you.

What bothers you about your life? What are you tolerating right now? I’m challenging you to stop tolerating your life. Kick out the incompatible parts to create the space for a life you’re able to love and accept completely.
