Do You Sometimes Feel too Lazy to Move a Finger?

Too lazy

Do you sometimes, feel too lazy to move a finger?

Do you sometimes, go through a day, when you feel you have been drained out of your energy, with no motivation, and no desire to do a thing?

Do you, at times, feel you don’t want to do anything?

Everybody has such days.

Don’t feel too bad when you go through such day. It’s quite possible that you are tired, and you are exhausting yourself, and not giving yourself enough rest.

Your body and your subconscious mind revolt against you, because they need rest, which you are depriving of them, and therefore, make you feel down and listless. In this way they force you to ease down.

You should listen to your body, to your mind, and to your intuition, and cooperate with them. Don’t wait until they force you to stop, by making you feel lazy, drained, and exhausted. It is much better to give yourself periodic rest before this happens, instead of being forced to do so. Take a day or two off, and just rest, go to walk on the beach, travel somewhere, read a good book, and try to find out what you can do to feel happier.

Everything Starts as a Dream, but Requires Action

101 Motivational Tips for SuccessHere is an excerpt from the book 101 Motivational Tips for Success:

“Everything starts as a dream, a thought, a mental image, but this is just the first step. If you stay there, you will enjoy your dream, but one day you will see that you are standing still, like a person watching a beautiful and inspiring movie, over and again, but not going out to the real world to create and live what he or she has seen in the movie.”

“Are you waiting for some miracle to change your life? Sometimes, miracles do happen, but why not make the miracles happen? You can create miracles, when you know what you want, adopt a positive attitude, and take action.”

“Help the miracle happen, by participating in its creation, by planning, visualizing, expecting, and acting. When you contribute to making things happen, they eventually happen, sometimes quite fast, and sometimes, gradually, over a period of time.”

What do you conclude from this excerpt?

To achieve a dream you need to take action. For most people, it looks like a difficult step, because you don’t know where to start and what to do. It is here that most people stop and don’t go further. The people who succeed are those that think, plan, read, and look around them to see open doors. In order to see the open doors you need motivation and faith in yourself.

Was the Past Really Better than the Present?

Do you think that your life in the past was better than the present?

Do you miss the “good old days?”

Quite often people, not just old people, but people of all ages yearn to the past, believing it was a better time. They think and feel that their childhood, adolescence, and the time they were young was a great time. They think and believe that everything was better than it is now.

This sometimes might be true, but not always. If you analyze these thoughts and feelings in an unprejudiced manner, you might arrive to the conclusion that your earlier years were not as great as you imagine.

I have a certain theory about this, which I would like to share with you.

People do not yearn to the actual past, to past circumstances and situations, which sometimes were good, and sometimes not so good. They yearn to something else. They yearn to two things.

They yearn to the period when they were quite young, when they didn’t worry about money, work and possessions. They yearn to the times when they had no worries and problems, when grown up people took care of everything. It was a carefree period, and this is what they are missing now.
