Somehow, I stumbled across a copy of "The Motivation Manifesto" , by Brendon Burchard and it caused me to reflect on my life and how the decisions I make everyday have an impact on me . Just about everything that I've wondered about was confirmed between each page. One affirmation that was and still is very important to my life was , "We Shall Reclaim Our Agenda" . Yes , everyday I find myself wrapped up in things that aren't my own responsibility , but rather what I would call busy work because it is of no importance to the future that I wish to have . Always caught in the hustle and bustle , I go to sleep sometimes singing the "should've /could've/ would've" story and I wouldn't wish that on my worse enemy ( of course , if they existed). I've accepted this as a flaw and every time I mysteriously slip up , I apologize to myself for putting off what essentially is , myself.
We have the same 24 hours in a day , but somehow we allow those hours to slip between our fingers while we gasp for air or just a second to relax. During the school year, I found myself lost in the abyss , unable to write or meditate which eventually backfired when it was finally time to put all of my ideas together. You would think that at almost 20 years old , I would have all of the time in the world to dream , search and discover . No , instead I scheduled times to do all of the things which make me happy. These things remained on the bottom of my to-do-list , rolling over everyday , month and year.
We wonder why we haven't reached our potential or that we see no change in our lives , but give more time to the things that won't matter later in life . I , myself had to stop myself from saying yes , spending unnecessary money and buckle down to reach certain goals . Though I'm not there yet , I sleep better knowing that the best is yet to come. I sleep better at night when I am productive , stressing less about deadlines and not utilizing my time productively.
If you find yourself "penciling" your dreams and ideas in , you my friend have a problem.
If it helps , remember that you have the same 24 hours in the day as * enter favorite celebrity here* and you can be just as successful if you use the time right.
