Motivation and Survival – The thin line in between.

Good day all, 

We live in a world where, there are constant reminders of how hectic and stressful our lives are. We are all constantly looking for escapes and some how, just some how scrape past our day to day routine. Reason being, we as humans over think every detail, every situation and everything in our lives to such an extent that we forget to capture in and indulge in the present. 

What do I do about this? Well, I myself can personally vouch for this reality. It’s quite simply a phenomenon of our brain telling us all the things we need to accomplish in our life time within the span of one single day, one single hour or perhaps even one single second. But as the saying goes, a computer is in fact ‘stupid’ unless it is told what to do, we have control over our thoughts, our brain and our actions, so we must therefore control our brain, calm it down and reflect on the bigger picture, I for example have summarized my life into three simple categories: My education, my relationships and my community work, that doesn’t go to say that each of these elements aren’t riddled with sub elements however once you have a foundation of what your life revolves around, one can successfully enable and unlock all otherwise ‘hidden’ potential, vieiwng my life in these three concise disciplines allows me to not dwell on all the things that need to be done, but to focus on the task at hand. 

As we keep working in this fashion, it appears our goals almost realise themselves for we are no longer focusing on the stress of future plans but on the deidication of present effort which both culminates and manifests into a world of possibilities otherwise deeemed impossible.
