Everything happens at a certain pace. Sometimes things move slowly; sometimes things move quickly. In the modern world, we have an inclination for a fast paced momentum. However, this is not how it should be all the time.
Slow movement is not a bad thing. In fact, at times slowness can be exactly what is necessary. But it is important to know the difference between what is slow and what is sluggish.
Sluggish is not a slow pace; it is a restrained or resistant pace. Sluggishness happens when there is a perpetuation of heavy energy or a drainage of energy. It is a waste of valuable time, a lack of enthusiasm, a negative attitude, or a type of malaise.
You know sluggish when you encounter it. You can feel it. Sluggish is what holds you back and keeps you from moving forward. If you really want to get ahead, then get rid of the sluggish.
Research is not just for professors and scientists. Everyone who wants to stay on top in career and business has to do research on a regular basis.
The study of various types of information and trends is not based only on scholarly investigation. In fact, this material can be gleaned from a broad range of subject matter. Data is everywhere.
Seeking and gathering pertinent information is vital to the achievement and maintained success of your goals. Research helps you to be more knowledgeable and gives you the tools you need to make informed decisions.
A door is not a door when it: A. Does not open, or B. When it opens to something that is more trouble than it is worth.
An open door is an opportunity, a possibility for something good to happen. The main point here is that an opportunity may look promising but it is still only a possibility. You have to investigate further to see where it leads.
Just because a door has opened, this does not mean it is going to result in great and wonderful things. Your knowledge, experience, and intuition must all come together to alert you to what is happening so that you can realize whether to keep going or to back away. That is how you solve the riddle.
Everyone and everything develops and grows, and this happens within certain boundaries. It is not possible to extend anything without limits. Containment is necessary for healthy progress.
It is essential to know what your boundaries are and to do this is with yourself as well as with other people. Be aware of how much time/energy/money you can logically expend on anything or anyone. With this understanding, you can set reasonable and workable parameters that allow you to achieve and maintain a strong sense of well-being.
Your spirit is your true self, the essence of your being. It is who you are without all the layers of external interactions, expectations, and limitations.
Becoming who you really are is an evolutionary process. It takes cultivation and a clearing away of negative or unbalanced energies. It takes being responsible for yourself and your own happiness.
Inside of you is a complete soul, a whole being, who needs to be nurtured and allowed to blossom. Listen to your spirit!
We all want to get ahead and make a comfortable place for ourselves in the world. Nobody really wants to be stuck or pushed back. Despite the fact that some people say, “I don’t care,” or “I give up,” no one actually desires that.
The reality is that life is a messy business. It certainly is not easy.
Those who move forward are those who are willing to deal with the messiness of life. Those who get behind are those who allow themselves to be overwhelmed by life’s messiness.
Sometimes it seems as if you are getting behind, even when you have made the effort to get ahead. It is during those times when you must trust in the process and have confidence in your ability to come out on top.
What if you analyzed and assessed your life the way an entrepreneur does with an enterprise? It would certainly give you an advantage in this world.
If you sat down and wrote out one or more problem statements and then began to find solutions, this would be the start of your strategic plan. It is how you begin to set goals and objectives.
Let us conceptualize, for example, that your goal is to attain peace of mind. You must first figure out what the steps are to achieve this. And then you have to consistently work at it.
Everything worth having happens with continued effort.
