“When you feel like giving up, focus on the outcome rather than the struggle- and push yourself to keep going, no matter how difficult this may seem. Be careful to evaluate your goal. If it’s the right goal fof you, you are unlikely to act on the urge to quit in the face of challenges.”- Greg S. Reid
You will encounter obstacles on your way to your own success. It is not going to be a smooth ride. If you really want to achieve your goals, you must not give up. But you must know when to say, “enough is enough.”
If your going gets tough, do not quit. Just keep going. Do not even think of quitting. Before you quit, ask yourself, ” What is the worse that can happen if I give up?” If it will affect your life in a big way, then do not quit. Instead, find a different way of approaching the same problem.
It is easy to give up. But it is not easy to start again. The best time to give up is when you are done. The second best time to give up is when you have found a better way forward. If not, do not try it. Even if other people are giving up on their dreams, do not do it. Because they are not you. You are not them. And you guys are not running the same race. You guys are different.
If you are not them, then why are you running after their dreams?
“Why are we so busy?” “Because we run out of space.” Because we want to make people happy. Because we are out of self-control, out of self-mastery, out of self-management. If you want to be really productive, you must slow down. You must NOT follow the crowd. You must follow yourself. You must believe in yourself.
But you can do something about it. You can change it. You can live your normal life. You can be you, not others.
You are busy when you are trying to live your life like other people. You are busy when you do not even know what you represent. You are busy when you are trying to fit in.
It pays to be you. If you have the courage to do it. Off course, you do. How? In his book, The Happiness Equation: Want Nothing + Do Nothing = Have Nothing, Neil Paricha asked, “What’s the secret step we can take to never be busy again?” The answer is, according to Neil Paricha, “Create Space.” He continues: “Creating space is the secret step to freeing yourself from the oppression of your busy life. … Creating space means injecting space into your life so you can properly live it.”
Yes, we are busy. But do not let it take over your life. Yes, we live in a busy world. But if you are not careful, it will take over your life, your peace.
When you are busy, you are out of your balance. When you are busy, you are not in control of your life. When you are busy, you are not in control of your own thoughts. When you are not in control of your own thoughts, then you are not in the right state of mind.
Busyness is crazyness.
If you want to achieve greatness in your life, you must slow down. If not, you are not going to achieve anything in your life.
When you are out of balance, you are out of life. Why? Because we die slowly. Because we die every day.
