Start with 'Why?'

Start with 'Why?' - Find purpose

Invariably the most important question in any situation in my opinion, is 'Why?'.

I know for a fact that there are many who do not agree with me.

The simple question 'Why?' can dictate the response for every other

question you can ask, by giving purpose to the what, when, where and how.

It may also shed light on how important the activity is and help you decide

if it worth the effort to execute at all!

 

Ask yourself a general question like "Why do you go to work?"

Everyone can answer this question but the answers will not be equal.

A common answer would be "To get paid" but that is a shallow answer.

If you dig deeper you will realize that this is not the end goal because you are not

going to horde your earnings,you are going to spend them on the things you want and need.

In this way an answer such as "To feed my children" is worth more than any shallow answer.

 

The more specific you define the result that you want to achieve,

the more motivated and focused you will be in every activity required.

Sadly most of our activity is done on autopilot without ever analyzing why we do it

but rather just engaging in activities we believe are normal.

 

Start with 'Why?' - The right why!

How many people do you think use the right why in their decision making?

To be more specific, how many people use the reason 'to make money'

or 'to save money' as their motivation for many of their activities?

What would you do differently if money was not a factor?

 

It has become acceptable to choose a career based on how much money can be made

rather than passion or interest in the field in question.

How can you choose a direction of your life that steers you away from your interest?

It sounds insane but this is unbelievably common due to the focus society

places on monetary gain rather than happiness.

 

The most unfortunate thing in this situation is that many who follow their passion,

despite advice to the contrary, often do well.

They do their job with passion and people are willing to pay for that!

Let us change our thought process and begin with why we want to take action

before we decide what action should be taken.

Being Patient

0 Comments

Being Patient

Being patient, I find, is the hardest thing for me to do.

Some may say it is a symptom of the information age in which we live

or any number of character flaws that can causes a lack of patience.

I for one, do not see patience reflected in many people anymore.

We simply cannot take the time to allow processes to take place as they should.

We are always trying to accomplish the same results in less time.

 

My problem is I do not entirely agree with this mentality that drives us to

make everything in our lives more efficient, faster or easier.

Like most individuals I would gladly choose an alternative method

that will give me the results I desire in less time.

Unfortunately, there are many things in life that cannot be accomplished swiftly,

without compromising the results or costing and unreasonable amount.

 

Let me refer to the most universal of examples,

exercise for the purpose of body modification of any type.

Whether you want to lose weight, gain muscle or even just be fit in a general sense,

you need to dedicate the time required to transform your body.

Being Patient

Any attempt to gain results faster through steroids,

or any drastic method promising to cut the time down significantly,

can cost you your health.

In essence trying to speed up the process may result not only setbacks

but the opposite of the desired result.

 

In examining an example like this it would be easy to identify hard work

as the most important activity of the transformation process.

The reality is that hard work needs to be expressed over time to achieve worthwhile results.

Hard work in the moment does not instantly produce.

I am sure you know of many hard working people who gave up before achieving the results that they desired.

Being patient will allow you persevere through the periods with limited results.

 

While I point out a physical activity, this series of events holds true for many other things in life.

While it would be accurate to say patience itself is a barrier to success,

I would like to point out the trait that I believe to be at the heart of many of these example…….. consistency.

Yes, in some cases the patience to wait on the right time is required before action is taken.

However, simply waiting without consistent action is much easier than working with consistency toward a particular goal.

 

The repetition of any activity over time will undeniably make anyone better at it.

The problem is that when measurable results are not forthcoming,

the resolve (and thus the consistency of practice or repetition) wavers before the results are achieved.

Perseverance and consistency are functions that cannot arise without patience.

Chasing Dreams

0 Comments

Chasing dreams - Not everyone does

It doesn't occur to me that you would have to tell people to start chasing dreams.

Maybe I grew up watching too much television shows where the central theme was

'you can do anything you put your mind to' or 'dream it and you can achieve it'.

'Chasing dreams' however is used in certain scenarios as a negative describing

when someone is going after something they cannot attain.

When did dreams become impossible?

 

Having a dream cannot be bad, so it is often encouraged in children.

How can we then be of the opinion that we should "face reality"

and abandon our dreams when we come of age?

Many people have accepted this lie as the truth of the lives we live.

Many people abandon ambition for the monotony of making a living

that has no greater purpose or fulfillment just to get by.

 chasing dreams

Chasing dreams - Why not you?

Yes, it does take courage to chase your dreams.

It takes so much courage that many never even take the first step.

A sure way to fail is to never try.

Procrastination is usually only a symptom of a lack of courage

or an over abundance of fear.

 

Many will discourage you, whether it be accidental or intentional is irrelevant.

You need to have your own motivation to be stronger than your detractors

in order for you to make sure you stay on your path.

In the end you must believe that whatever you want to achieve is possible for you,

not just for others, but as the first step and constant thought on your journey.

 

Instead of chasing what we love the vast majority of the population

chooses what is thought to be the safer road in life.

Unfortunately the reality is that even on the 'safe road' it is still possible to fail.

Even worse is the fact that success on the 'safe road' may not lead to happiness or comfort!

 

Ask yourself what you would do if money was no object?

Money should not be be your priority!

If you do things you do not like for money to continue living to do

more of what you do not like you are living a purposeless life.

Why would you teach your children to do this?

Why would you do this yourself?

You have no excuse!

Any excuse you make will seem to pale in comparrisson after this video.

We can all make excuses not to.

That is the easiest thing in the world.

How many of us can fight the uphill battle to success?

Positive thinking

Positive thinking from a pessimist

Anyone who has known me for more than a week will, without hesitation, call me a pessimist.

I wholeheartedly disagree with that analysis but I understand why that would be the consensus.

I believe myself a realist.

The main argument I have for these people is that I am not an unhappy person.

I am not depressed and jaded or unwilling to try something new.

Surely there must be more criteria for being a pessimist than pointing out the negative.

 

In most conversations I will point out the negative possibilities,

but I will never take the point of view that a negative outcome is unavoidable.

I believe that negative factors are unavoidable and are a part of our lives

so we must be prepared for them and learn from them.

Unfortunately, I see a world that tries to ignore all negativity and make it

taboo to speak about the possibility of failure in any way.

Failure is not the end of the world.

As a matter of fact you often rise from failure stronger.

 

My brand of positive thinking does not involve the delusion that the world is all sunshine and rainbows.

For me, failures are merely the experiments that allow me to find out how to achieve success.

Negative outcomes do not put me in a slump!

Yes, I do see the negative in everything, because I need to be prepared to avoid it!

If the negative obstacle is unavoidable you need to have a plan of action to get past it.

There is a difference in the naivety of an optimist blindly saying that everything is going to work

out and a realist preparing for every eventuality to make sure things work out.

Positive thinking

Positive thinking should produce positive words

I understand that it is difficult to understand that a person speaking about

all the things that could go wrong would be hard to accept as a positive thinker.

In that respect I must admit that I fail to communicate positivity daily.

Both positive and negative can be seen in every situation and it is rare for me

to socialize with someone who cannot see the positive in any situation.

 

When a true pessimist enters a conversation with me however,

the doom and gloom perspective is always thrown out.

The way I do it however is still not as desirable as the pep talk of an optimist.

I do not say ''things will work out, don't worry" of give any of the blanket statements

that imply a future bed of roses after their hardship.

Instead I ask questions like 'do you understand why that happened?' and

'do you know what you have to do next to get out of this situation?'.

 

In the end I believe that a positive outcome is always possible,

though that may be referring to the lesson you will learn through the current negative situation.

Your attitude is an important factor in your view of the world and you have to freedom

to choose optimism, pessimism, idealism or realism or any combination to shape it.
