I have noticed that the happiest people are always building and creating. They are always working towards something.
Building and creating is where most of our fulfillment in life comes from.
No wonder so many people are down in the dumps and depressed- they aren’t building anything.
Idly hands are the devils plaything. Being sedentary is not what we were made for.
To avoid falling into the pit hole of depression and lack of motivation, you have to be building. You have to keep your mind and hands busy.
Building and working towards something is the only way to have satisfaction in your life.
It doesn’t matter what your building. It can be your business, your body, your brain, a DIY project, but you have to find something to work towards.
Only by building something can you get the feeling of accomplishment.
Only by accomplishing things, do we gain self mastery and self confidence.
The less you build- the less you want to build. The more you build- the more you will want to build.
People who are sedentary, stay sedentary.
People who are active, stay active.
This is newtons 1st law of motion.
An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
What does this mean?
Unless you actively choose to get off your ass and build, you will always stay sedentary.
The hardest part is just starting.
We should have excitement and purpose running through our veins. We should come home at the end of the day completely satisfied and tired.
If you’re not tired at the end of the day, you didn’t build enough.
Anyone who’s ever traveled for a certain amount of time can attest to this feeling of dissatisfaction you get from laying around on the beach all day.
Sure laying on the beach for months at a time is definitely relaxing and enjoyable, but after some time you feel unsatisfied and unfulfilled. You want something to do. I remember even being happy to go back to work at Pita Pit. I couldn’t wait to do something, anything.
The only time that relaxing or chilling is enjoyable is when it is deserved. When you have built or worked towards something all day, then you should relax.
Relaxing and fucking around all day doing nothing leads to depression, lack of motivation and lack of direction. It leads to an unfulfilling life.
