As I lay on my bed after a sumptuous lunch, half-awake, half drowsy; I think -What am I doing with my life? I am wasting time here. Valuable time. What do I want to do? What should I do? Do I want to be lazy, or do I want to be awesome? We can be awesome when we work towards it- get productive and show the world what you are capable of, flow with your passion and get things done. You motivate yourself and those around you. Be useful, feel happier feel accomplished and enjoy your life. Or do you still want to be lazy?
Why do we like to sleep long hours? To watch TV endlessly? To just order junk food and skip the trouble of cooking? Why do we socialize on Facebook and not in real life? Why indeed you ask, why?
Because it is easy. Because it is what the primitive man of the stone age did. He was hard-wired to resist troubles because his primary aim was to Survive. Less exertion meant more survival. He would work his ass off to collect fruits, hunt and then store it in his cave to preserve for as long as possible. But, are we, the modern men the same now? Is our sole purpose Survival?
On the other hand, the modern man has to figure out his life’s purpose and work hard to fulfill it. You have a dream- something you want to do before you die, a passion you live for; then go do it. Maybe you want to be a musician, writer, inspirational figure, whatever. You might even have a simple dream of making this world a better place than you found it in.
But it won’t be easy, you’ll have to work, hard. You cannot afford to waste time, money and energy in fruitless activities. You do the stuff that matters to you and ignore everything else. Get out of your comfort zone and work for your cause. There are no shortcuts. There is only one path to success- the path that you forge with your efforts.
You get to decide whether you want to be primitive or modern; lazy or productive. If you choose the former, people will forget you soon after you die, but if you choose the latter, people will talk about your achievements and your contribution to the world. You can inspire people for centuries after you are no more.
You have to decide: Do you want to just survive? Or do you want to really live? Think about it.
