“Why Are We So Busy?”

“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.

“When The Pain Leaves, Space Remains”

“We grow through hard times. Growth is change. And when everything is easy, we have no chance to change. The most painful moments in life expand us. And when the pain leaves, space remains. Space we can fill with life itself.”- Matt Haig

No one likes hard times. But that is where growth is. That is where growth really happens. Look, you can’t growth without change. If you want to grow, you must make friend with change.

If you do not like change, it means you do not like life. Because life is change. And change is life. Without change, there can be no growth. Without change, everything will remain old.

When you face something bigger than yourself, do not ignore it. It is going to expand you. It is going to make you bigger. It is going to bring out the best in you.

So whatever you are going through right now, you can defeat it. You can face it.

“And when the pain leaves, space remains.” When the pain leaves, love yourself even more. When the pain leaves, take care of your self even more. When you are no longer dealing with the pain, enjoy your life even more.

Why is that? Because you are bigger than pain. You are better than what is going after you. You are bigger than what you are going through in your life. You are smarter than you think. Whatever you are dealing with, it is not the end of your life. It is just the beginning of a new chapter. Are you ready to read it?
