This is the power of silence, Grow silently

A seed grows with no noise, but a tree falls with huge sound, Destruction is loud but creativity is silent, This is the power of silence, Grow silently

I’m gonna
I’m gonna
I’m gonna

No, you’re probably not

I’ve had conversations like this all the time and looking back I’ve said my fair shares of I’m gonnas

I lot of them the ‘Not’ Was silent

I’ve also been on the receiving end of someones I’m gonna

There ‘Not’ Was also silent

I find it more powerful now to just say oh yeah I’ve done this by the way

And show the work I’ve actually done

If your ‘im gonna’ has gone on for over a week and you haven’t done anything to get started

Just tell your sell your full of shit and move on

At least then you can do something of use with yourself

Learn to lose in order to recover

Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember nothing stays the same for long’ – May Sarton

In the harshest winters, a tree will look dead, No leaves nothing… But after a harsh winter, that same tree will have the most gloriest spring…

You too will have harsh winters, will feel like you have lost everything… but in the time of struggle remember this is just a season in your life…

This too shall pass

and know that something beautiful is getting ready to spring, That beauty comes deep from within, deep down in your roots, it can’t be seen on the surface.

Don’t let the harsh times defeat you… ‘Nothing stays the same for long’

A divided mind will fall 

A divided mind will fall  – Garret J White

When you want change but you’re scared of change, You will not change.

The fear will consume you, you will seek the comforts of what you know.

Rather than the uncertainty of change.

You will battle yourself daily, knowing that you should do something different but the voice in your head won’t let you.

You want change, you need to be certain that you want it, you can’t be torn between change and comfort (Old and New can’t live together remember) because comfort will win.

If your mind is split, dive deeper into why you want to change, take a look 5,10, 15 years down the line, how does your life look if you stay the same…

Persist and Resist

“Persist and Resist.” Epictetus

Remember your in this for the long run, till the whistle blows and knowing that you know that every second is yours to use.

You don’t need to worry about the other team, the scoreboard, what who and what have done as long as that clock is ticking you can turn the game around…

By Persisting in your efforts even when things aren’t going so good…

And resisting distractions that stop you from persisting that is the only way we can get ‘so far As I can see no way out but through’ (Yesterday’s post)

People are forever watching things

‘What good is watching for that matter? People are forever watching things.’ Patrick Rothfuss

There are times when we watch people do things, that we could be doing ourselves

Youtube is pretty big for people watching others play videogames,
You can watch people workout and prep for a big fight, Motivational clips of people taking big risks…

We open up Instagram and watch peoples lives on there, doing the stuff that we want to do…

All this is ok for a bit of inspiration but if you really want to live the life of the ones you are watching then…

You have to stop watching and start doing those things, otherwise, you will forever be a watcher
