I am without doubt one of the most lazy individuals that you’re ever likely to meet. Playing computer games all day Saturday and Sunday, completely destroying my weekends. Surfing the internet in the evenings, gliding about on Facebook, stalking my exes with the occasional peek at my friends hot girlfriend, who recently posted pictures of herself in a bikini, that keeps my perverted mind occupied for a few moments, before venturing to my slumber. Only to be rudely awoken by the cries of the iphone’s alarm, that screams at me, “today you are going to do it all again”. This perpetually dull existence, is a comfortable, safe, relaxing way to live your days until you come to meet that tall shrouded fellow, who asks you the final question you will ever answer. We all purposely avoid ever having to come to this point, where we will have to face it. My answer, to this fateful question, is the reason that if you ever meet me, you would think I was anything, but lazy. I certainly have not achieved a great success to which I am known, at least not yet, however I am one or maybe two promotions up from a jack of all creative trades, and when I say all, there certainly isn’t anything I haven’t tried.
Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.
My factory setting is idol. I should be simply dreaming about exciting adventures from my pillow, play my games and watching my xfactor, dream and wonder at the lives of those I consider lucky. Luck it would appear has nothing to do with a life worth living. I do battle at every moment to defeat my automatic function. When asked to go somewhere to do something I will be the one to answer. If I am invited to go anywhere, I’ll almost always go. There is a very simple process that makes me do this. When conjuring up your happiest memories, the reason you had the experience that you did is simply because you made some kind of choice that led you to that experience. When remembering these moments, sheer joy and love for the experience should overwhelm your heart, and not fill it with regret or longing for a time when things were easier, and better.
The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.
I try to make friends with people who have higher levels of energy than that of what I have, in order to ride the gravy train of their enthusiasm. People are without doubt the key that opens the door to a life that will, make you smile on your death-bed. Investing time in friendships with personalities that you admire will almost certainly, change your life. All the books you see on the shelves of the self-help section ironically, before opening their pages, have already explained how you will overcome the stresses of everyday living. Self help, you quite simply, help yourself. Humans are extremely complex individuals. Paul McKenna, Tony Robbins and Oprah may have their hearts and their fat wallets in the right place, nevertheless, one thing is for certain; their words are an insult to you. To arrogantly think that they can improve everyone’s lives, completely takes away the special wonder that is from being a person. Knowing the path, is not walking the path.
A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money.
