I was ready for a street fight for all the wrong reasons.

There are real enemies, and there are ones we create in our minds. When we see everyone as a potential threat, we are poised to fight, grind our teeth, fists are clenched, and have zero patience.

In this state, we are less intelligent, make poor decisions, and our minds are clouded. Furthermore, it is not good for our physical and mental health.

It’s not that we want to be violent, but something is happening at an unconscious level that feels threatening.

Take time to investigate the threat. Is it real or imagined? Meditate on it.

In The 4 Keys Mastermind members are ready for a street fight. It’s a metaphor for being present and always ready – but not in a threat state, a ‘challenge state.’

There is a difference.
