What Can Spongebob Teach us About Mental Fortitude?

Posted: April 14, 2010 in Uncategorized


Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Sqarepants of course. And where do you live?

Our mind constantly vacillates between the past and the future entirely missing whats important. Right now.

Not only is our mind going back in time as if we can change the past; and not only is it casting its eye on the future as if we can control it, but we are also allowing the environment to trow us off our mental and emotional center. So I will ask you again. In your mind and in your heart, where do you live?

Do you live in an inflatable raft somewhere in the middle of an ocean?
Are you being tossed around by the currents and waves somewhere on the surface of your liquid foundation?
Is your mental and emotional core affected by the waves and currents, typhoons and upheavals not of your making?

Who in your life, is able to suck you into their tornado? Your spouse? Your kid? A friend or a parent? Your dog?

Who puts you in a barely inflated raft and sends you sailing across the ocean of anger, misery, jealousy, and judgment?

There is someone who has bought real estate in a mentally and emotionally beneficial location unaffected by the surface turmoil. Spongebob.

If you move-in next to Spongebob, somewhere on the bottom of the ocean, the upheavals on the surface will not affect you. This is where your mental and emotional core should live. Waves and currents, typhoons and upheavals not of your making are just things that happen on the unstable surface. Down on the bottom, things are calm and quiet. This is where we should set up camp.

How do YOU think this relates to dog training?

What? Too short? lol
Not every post has to be a dissertation, I think I’ve made my point 🙂
