I hope all of you are doing great! It is almost the end of May 2017 and indeed time runs faster than we do. I haven’t got the time to actually sit down and write down inspirational stories and articles. But, don’t worry, it’s time to share what’s good and pursue on our values of life.
This time out, I came to realise after quite a period of thinking and sharing thoughts with people, we came up to a word called ‘Self-Realisation’ which means that you realise something on yourself. What would it be? It could be vary depending on what you are pursuing.
For example, I found this article to be useful:
There has been bunch of articles about being an entrepreneur, from starting with 0 capital or more than 5-6 digits of 0 in USD, EUR or any other strong currencies.
Why is this related to self-realisation? It is related because you have come up to an age or a time when waiting for salary to come to you either in every 2 weeks, end of month or beginning of the month has made you feel that your life is being on a shaky line, not to mention with bunch of our commitments which has made us not able to move around and do stuff as we wish. Beggars can’t beg – There is a saying of this which is true at times, we can’t just say ‘Hi I want that car, or that house when our balance is not even enough to pay for its down-payment.
It has come up to myself that having a stable income every month is indeed a decent thing so you don’t have to worry about any of your expenses within budget of your salary.
However, if you do ask yourself? What it has given to you? Any self-satisfaction?
If you do have a self-satisfaction on what you are getting as long as you are having a regular income, I can’t complain much on that because some of us have commitments on our back, holding responsibilities. But, for us who aren’t happy with what you are getting, are you going to stay doing what you’re doing and keep up straight faces from 9-5? Days have changed us to a period when self-employment is possible (with quite a struggle) and don’t say it is easy because none of us as pioneers of doing a business have got to say and tell the world that it was an easy path for them to put the stepping-stones.
What should be done then?
It is obvious than social medias have taken 90% of our attention to our world of screen (either big or small and medium size of it), to impress, to look or search for something that we do like and just to stay out from our boredom.
How about reading? It is known that people don’t read much and prefer to read HEADLINES and made assumptions out of it, as a result? Being judgemental is a soft skill for them. Sometimes, you have to slowdown with your social medias and read for your own knowledge, not to say that you can’t read novels, comics or else but by having knowledge from books and dedicated writers, they can and able to help you out whenever you have doubts in your mind or want to do something valuable within your life.
Read for 5-10 minutes in a day and pick any books you like and make sure it has a good knowledge inside. Otherwise, try to search for valuable writers and magazines as well.
Back to the 90s when we do not have mobile phones as our bangles and mobile tablets as our PSP/Gameboy, we will sit and talk with other people in cafe, mall or just over the phone. This is something that has gone to an extinction ’til some cafes are putting wifi passwords as : talkwithyourfriend, stoplayingwithyourphone and more which clearly indicate our addiction of mobile phone. Put away your phone, talk with your good friend/family about life and cherish the moments with them.
I hope that we will start to make something out of our life, be someone who can share happiness with others. Life is not about having unlimited balance in your bank account (although that is nice too) But, it is also about being YOU, the one that YOU love and appreciate.
Have a good weekend.
