In childhood, my mother told me many times to clean up my room. I didn’t really listen to her because I thought it was meaningless. Along the way, I learned the importance of that activity. But it’s now that I finally appreciated the full meaning of that sentence. It was when I heard Dr. Jordan Peterson.
Sometimes we are feeling like we have enough of some activity. But some part of us doesn’t wanna let it go.
We stay in the same place until we are exhausted as hell (or even until we die). Sounds familiar?
The question is: how can we change this behavior?
Feeling like you have to all the time do something productive?
All demands are on your shoulders. Maybe it’s time to reconsider something?
Many people go through their lives like they have only obligations.
But is it healthy? Of course not.
I was sitting back in my room and I was wondering. The question came to my head:
“Why should I eat this healthy food, why should I go to the gym on daily basis, why should I read these books. Does it even matter?”
And then… I got the answer,
It matters because the effects of these routines are visible but in a long term.
Remember the time you wanted to do something good with your life?
Maybe you got a musical talent and you wasted it. Or maybe you were good at math but you stopped pushing yourself further
or… You just wanted to become average like everybody else…
You said – who the f. cares about me. I may still be average.
But… Is it true?
When you don’t manifest your potential you bring up hell to the world!
