“Do all that you can do in a perfect manner every day, but do it without haste, worry, or fear. Go as fast as you can, but never hurry. … The moment you begin to hurry you cease to be a creator and become a competitor.”- Wallace D. Wattles
Being busy is not being productive. The world wants productive people, not busy people.
It does not matter what you do, if you are just running around, you are not going to get any thing done. But if you focus, if you evaluate yourself, if you know what you are doing, you do not need to rush. You do not need to compete with other people. All you need to do is to add value to your life.
It does not matter how busy you are. If you are not chasing your purpose, you are chasing nothing.
If you are not making your life a masterpiece, you are making your life a masterpieces.
Do not do that to yourself. Because you are here to conquer yourself, not to conquer others. Why? Because if you cannot conquer yourself, you won’t be able to conquer others. Hold your faith. Do not let it go. You need it. Without faith, there can be no success.
If you want to connect with your soul, you must strive for stillness, not busyness.
The only person you can be in this world is you. No matter what, be yourself. Be real. No matter where you are, be yourself.
And the only way you can make peace with yourself is to be yourself. Ask yourself, “If I am not myself, who am I?”
You will do better things in your life if you are yourself, if you believe in yourself, if you love yourself, if you have faith in your future, if you are not afraid of the unknown.
Why? Because the future is unknown.
To be anything else is to be a fool, a coward. To be who you are not is to be a liar, a storyteller.
It does not matter what you are doing right now. If you want to do it really well, you must be yourself.
According to Ryan Holiday, “Be a cop. Be a soldier. Be a philosopher. Be another musician in a long tradition of rock music. Hold somebody’s hand. Just make sure that underneath, you are being yourself. That you are not letting fear shut you up or put your down. That you are not doing what everyone else is doing simply because they are doing it. Be original. Be yourself. To be anything else is to be a coward.”
You cannot connect with your true self if you are not honest with yourself. Because being your true self is being honest with yourself. Whatever you do, small or big, make sure that you are not faking it. Just make sure that you are doing it for you, not because others want you to do it.
