“If you think something is missing in your life, it is probably YOU…”
― Robert Holden
Have you ever had that feeling that something is missing in your life? Have you taken the time to find it?
For some people life is a struggle. It’s not that it has to be a struggle it is just the way they believe things are. I’ve heard, “I just can’t do this kind of work.”, and they lament the very fact that the work is challenging instead of looking at how they could make those challenges smaller. They could learn more or dig into the material that they don’t understand and find ways to learn the material. In other words they could chose to attack work rather than letting work attack them.
“I don’t have enough time to do all the things I want to do.” and I’ll guess that you’ve uttered those words when the amount of things in life just seem overwhelming. The list of things to do just keeps growing and it is starting to crowd out what you really want to do. I’ll ask those people, “what do you really want to be doing? or what is most important to be done now.” After a few minutes a list of important things becomes visible and the unimportant things also become visible. From there it is a choice – “what do you want to do with what you have on the list?” Prioritization and making sure that the list of things to do are the things that matter most. Figure that out and there is time for you.
Are you struggling? Not just having a difficult time but really struggling to be your best self. What are you doing about it? What is missing in your life?
For some people it is motivation and they aren’t finding the energy to do something. When you’re not motivated what do you do about it? What keeps you in the game?
Do you have problems just getting started on something? Is it easier to wait, for another few minutes, hours and then days? Pretty soon that project, that idea, or inspiration just falls into the heap of the undone and unnoticed.
Where are you? Do you have all the things in life that you want to have? What’s missing?
