The stronger the wind

The stronger the wind the stronger the tree

Paths of meaning

A group of scientists grew some trees in a lab but the trees kept collapsing, eventually they realised that the fact the reason was because there was no wind to strengthen them

No think of someone who was born with it all and never had to work for anything, the moment they face adversity, they crumble

Because they had no ‘wind’ to strengthen them

So your facing adversity today…
That’s your wind,
Its making you stronger

Study what?

Study what?
if you don’t learn these things to put into practice, why learn them in the first place?
– Epictetus

Why do you read or take that course, or watch those how to videos and not implement what you have studied.

To say I know that?

Studying on it’s own is useless, knowledge on it’s own won’t do anything.

If the purpose of study is to collect knowledge then you can instead focus your time on something more useful that will impact your life

Because study without implementing is a waste of time,
Learn, but make sure you do something with it afterwards

Stop Thinking

Stop Thinking

And just go already,
Thinking,
Thinking,
Thinking…

Is actually really tiring and you can think yourself out of doing something, The key is to just go or just get started

Otherwise, nothing will get done,
Apart from a whole lot of thinking

Beautiful nothingness

Beautiful nothingness

We live in a noisy world

Noise everywhere, people arguing,talking, cars and trucks, planes, TV, radio…

Even on social media its just noise, noise, noise…

And this noise drowns out the noise in your head,
No time to think just trying to process all the noise going on

Then you sit down in the evening with a glass of wine or whisky to calm yourself from everything that has demanded your attention before you have to do the process again the next day…

One day you find yourself in an empty room, no TV, no radio,no people and no signal on your phone…

A strange feeling starts to emerge, your mind starts to wonder and you get to think and all these wonderful thoughts and ideas start to emerge…

Thats the wonders and the beauty of nothingness

Seek out some quite time in a world full of noise

Let your mind show you that it still has a voice

Watch what you can create from nothing

Otherwise you wouldn’t be here

(2 Daily Fires today… You lucky buggers)

Your exactly where you need to be, otherwise you wouldn’t be here

Forgot to note the IG account I took that from :/

Let’s just say you had the skills to fulfil your dream.

You were talented and you could have made it.

But you never did because you didn’t turn up to the auditions because you were lazy or you never had the confidence to release your work…

But instead of excepting that you instead tell people that should have been you or could have been you.

But instead of it being you, you just bore everybody with the same old talk…

You’re in the position now because that’s who you are supposed to be because if not you would have changed it…

But also you are right here right now able to change it.

If that was supposed to have been you but wasn’t because of X, Y or Z then now is the time to work on X, Y or Z you supposed to be here now, to work on them so you can move on from them.

And if you don’t work on them, then yeah this is exactly where you are supposed to be
