Sometimes it’s more important to stay still
As you rush through life, it’s vital to understand: “Sometimes it’s more important to stay still than to keep moving forward.”
Coming to a stop can often throw light to things you never notice while you’re rushing from one task to the next; you start seeing things from a completely different perspective. Often the answers are right there, but invisible as you’re in too much of a hurry to be able to see clearly. Take a break every once in a while. Relax. And try to appreciate how things are. Maybe you’ll find your next breakthrough.
Tell me it’s “common sense” when you know the reason
Common sense is often reason’s bitterest enemy. The moment you think “that’s obviously the way it should be”, you stop trying to ascertain the how, thus cutting out any possibilities of learning and improving the present status quo. Without the curiosity to understand why things are the way they are, there can never be progress.
Carefully weigh every thought that goes through your head, every thing you hear someone say, never stop being curious, and you will find yourself in a whole different state of learning and growth.
Scaling a Mountain
How you gaze at the summit!
So awestruck, it’s almost silly.
The path to the top will only grow longer if you belittle yourself.
A mountain peak does not exist to show how small you are,
It’s there to provide you with a goal.
If you have time to wander down a side path,
You should use it to climb up instead.
It won’t be an easy climb.
You may have to spend your entire lifetime.
Step by step, steady as a turtle…
It’s possible that you’ll never reach the top,
You may burn out halfway,
But one thing is certain:
You’ll have a better view.
The First Step
The first step. Sometimes that’s all it takes; sometimes it doesn’t make an inkling of a difference. Either way, one thing’s certain—you’ll never know until you take it! If you do, and get nowhere, at the very least you know that you did not let the chance go by.
The thing is, people do not like to take chances; they’re afraid of change, and of failure. When that happens, I reckon the best thing to do is ask yourself “what’s the worst that can happen?” If the answer doesn’t look too grim, go ahead and take that chance. You may not be able to figure out what all strange new possibilities arise due to that one small step!
What do you want?
What is it that you desire?
What do you want to be?
You struggle against the odds, fight the darkest despair to get things.
But what do you really want?
Do you have a goal?
Are you running through the journey of life without aim?
You can be truly happy only when you know your heart’s desire. Everything else just gets old and monotonous after a while.
It’s only when you know what you’re aiming for, that you can get a lasting sense of achievement.
Try and figure that out, will you?
We try real hard to get something
We put in everything we’ve got
But when it doesn’t yield
Don’t try so hard
Some of the best things in life happen
When we least expect them
Work for the joy of it
