You may be already living the dream

You may be already living the dream

Have you heard the story of the Mexican fisherman

A buisness man approached him and started quizzing him on his lifestyle

Then gave him buisness tips so he could build an empire over ten years

The Mexican asked what he would do after he did that

The buisness man told him he could fish for leisure, drink with friends and nap in the afternoon

Of which the Mexican was already doing
(Read the full story for it’s full effects)

Today we are hit with advertisements left right and Centre, we can’t avoid adverts

That tell us we need to do this, earn that and have this so that we can be happy or live the dream

Yet we could be the Mexican, we could already have and do everything we need,

We could already be living our dream

Dont let someone tell you what you should be doing, figure it out for yourself

You never know, you might already be there

The universe owes you nothing

The universe owes you nothing

The universe is a cosmic beauty that I far from understand, but I’m pretty certain it is not a catalogue of your wildest dreams

I’m pretty sure it’s not giving you signs to follow or conspiring against you.

The universe by chance gave us life, what more could you ask of it.

To give you a Lamborghini? For everything to go right today?

Nah life on earth is just as random as the universe

So don’t be mad or upset that things didn’t go your way, be mad at yourself for not managing your expectations

Restarting Hurts

Restarting hurts

Restarting takes effort, it takes time to get back into the flow and making it a habit again.

I injured both my ankles during lockdown, I could barely walk let alone exercise so I rested,

Which turned into more resting and more before I knew it a couple of months had passed and I hadn’t done anything

Getting back into the gym hurt, both physically and mentally

I had to break out of the comfort of not going I have to deal with the muscle soreness

Restarting hurts

It’s easier to not quit and keep going

But it’s better than never trying again

It’s better than doing nothing

It hurts but the pain is temperamental

Because the battles we fight are on the inside

I call myself a Peaceful Warrior because the battles we fight are on the inside

  • Socrates

The battles may be internal, Stress, Depression, Loneliness, Anxiety etc. But they could be caused by external events,

Actually, during researching and writing an ebook on depression I realised that mostly they are caused by externals, The way with live today is so different than what we evolved from but our underwiring is still same,

Having a Philosophy can help but if you don’t turn the gas off, your probably not going to stop the fire.

Can you imagine?

“Can you imagine yourself in 10 years if, instead of avoiding the things you know you should do, you actually did them every single day? That’s powerful.”

Jordan Peterson

Procrastination will kill you faster than a natural death, I know I’m a master procrastinator,

I put off things for weeks/months, I started editing a book and saw a note I left in it that said its Feb 2020 at the time of editing, 8 months later still not done

I could be in a lot better shape, I could be a lot smarter, I might even still be in a relationship if I did the stuff I knew I should.

We need to snap out of this distraction mentality Because it stops us from living.
