Real Time: Tuesday, 10 September 2019.
What do you do when you don’t feel like doing something? Believe me or not, your life is shaped by how you react or give in to your feelings, the outcome of your life is driven by the decisions you have made, or you make based on how you feel.
Are you confused? Okay, a lot of people worship their feelings, meaning, you only do what you feel like doing, always and only. Decisions that are made based only on how you feel often lead to self-inflicted misfortunes.
When you feel something please also radically ponder over it, you’re smart, I believe we all are, we have just allowed our feelings to take over our lives. But then remember, do not ignore or deny your feelings, do not suppress how you feel, never. Instead, acknowledge, have an understanding of how and why you feel a certain way, just don’t entertain this for a lengthy period of time, time is not standing still, and life will not wait for you. Just keep moving.
Most importantly, feelings change over time so do not make a mistake of making a permanent decision solely based on how you feel. Keep your eyes and mind open, basically be honest with yourself and be hardcore conscious.
Your goals cannot only be driven by your feelings, you will never accomplish and achieve them. Oftentimes, you do not feel like doing that very thing that you know you need to do for you to move closer to your goals.
You wanna complete your Degree? You gotta study even when you don’t feel like it and I tell you, you will not feel like it 70% of the time. You skipped the gym this entire year ‘cause most of the time you did not feel like it…laziness. Not feeling like doing something is a form of laziness and laziness is a form of negative attitude and behaviour. Whenever you feel lazy at a time that you know you cannot afford to be bull-shitting with your goals, means that you are allowing this feeling to flourish and just know that you are entertaining negativity upon yourself.
You also miss out of life’s opportunities ‘cause most of the time you do not feel like so many things, you are not special hey, sometimes just go out there and meet new people.
Homo sapiens are social animals. I personally believe that social interaction is necessary and imperative. Opportunities won’t wait for you to feel like it.
Reassessing your feelings is as important as drinking water.
