Hey theređź‘‹

If you’re reading this, you’re probably quite close to me since Mental Clarity is running is such a small community right now. Very few people have heard about it or are talking about it. Therefore, you’ve either stumbled upon this page completely out of nowhere or you know me. So, for those who don’t know me, I’m Grant Finlay. I am the Creative Director of Mental Clarity, a success coaching company based on Glasgow. Anyway, let’s get back to the blog. Detours.

The other day, I was in my car; following Google Maps, as usual, and then something struck me. If I stepped out of this pattern, I would discover the way by myself. It might not be the best for speed or for aesthetics but this route came from me making decisions and not relying solely on a continuously updated map.

That thought had me ensnared. Wait a moment. How many other areas in my life have I given up control of?

I started saying no a lot more. I felt good about saying no. I was free from obligations and then mental jail cell I had placed upon myself.


I had merely seized control of my life by force.

When you operate from a place of force, the environment around you repels. You have no chance because you fight against the universe.

And if you believe in a universal consciousness then you are the universe. Therefore, you fight yourself.

From this level of awareness, I can now see that whether I choose the route of Google Maps or if I decide to veer off path and rely on my rusty old memory, as long as I do it with joy, I may been in with a chance of sleeping better tonight.

Thanks for reading,
