THERE ARE THREE DIFFERENT KINDS OF PEOPLE
Everyone wants everything, but not everyone wants to do what it takes to get it!
There are so many aims out there - so many things and consequently so much possibility - that the field is completely open. So, why don't we hear more stories of people overcoming adversity? This is because everyone needs everything, but no one requires doing what is required to obtain it. You are motivated by a purpose or a thing and strive to run just on determination - this does not work. This actually works:
There are three types of people in this world: those who start things, those who watch things happen, and those who can't stop thinking about what happened. The great majority belong to the third group. There is no attention, concentration, or thinking about what is going on around them.
When you need something, all you have to do is take the time and attention to sit down and make it happen. This applies to everyone, regardless of their identity, major event, or place of origin. Your previous experience makes no effect at all. We should choose a narrative that perfectly expresses that.
Individuals are Broken, and We Refuse to Accept It
We're a shattered, jagged package. People tend to complain, "Gracious, the government did or isn't doing this, and now we're all suffering." Do you believe that the President, Prime Minister, or anybody in authority thinks about your financial problems or the impact that the progress they cause will have on you?
A considerable portion of human emotion comes in response to rejection by others, whether it is genuine, expected, recalled, or imagined. Because acceptance by others increased evolutionary fitness, humans evolved biopsychological processes to warn them of dangers to acceptance and belonging, as well as emotional systems to deal with challenges to acceptance.
It's simply easier for us to sit on the couch and watch the intellectuals argue about our overall position. "Well then, what got you off the love seat?" I'm frequently asked. The short answer is:
Meditation is an exploration. It is not a set destination. Your mind does not get cleaned clean of all distractions. It's a particular location where every minute is significant. When we meditate, we enter the workings of our minds: our senses (air blowing on our skin or a strong odour drifting into the room), our emotions (love this, detest that, seek this, abhor that), and our ideas.
Indeed, even for those who are resisting captivity, one of the first actions they take in group treatment is to just own it. We'd rather not admit that we're broken, imperfect, insecure, and uninspired. We go to a fast food restaurant a few times a week and can't stop thinking about how we gained so much weight.
Furthermore, it is not always the case that particular persons are influenced by external factors. Many people are not seen to be wealthy. However, monitoring it and spending more time to convert it is what separates the separated from those wanting to glue their lives back together and make a big deal out of themselves.
If you can look at your ledger and say, "gosh, I'm spending more than I make," and then take extra time to handle it, you're already ahead of the majority of other people who are worried that the government, their boss, the weather, and everything else is conspiring against them.
Accept Your Situation and Work to Improve It
The fact is that no one else thinks about you as much as you do. True, your family and friends may love you, but when adversity strikes, people's true natures emerge. If you are injured or disabled and wind up in the hospital, some people will stay with you, but the majority will not. If you're in a horrible situation and want assistance, your loved ones may be unable to assist you. Some will, but the majority will not.
Acceptance is the ability to value all aspects of oneself unreservedly. That is, you acknowledge everything about oneself, including the good and the bad. Self-acceptance might be difficult for most of us. We are often critical of ourselves, yet there are several approaches to learning to embrace yourself and your life. It all starts with your mental condition.
So stop whining. Stop feeling hopeless about your station in life, and instead of sobbing or being distracted, double down and hone in on one aspect of your life that you need to grow, and then take extra time to get it going. Monitoring the problem will not solve it, but it is a good first step. The next step is activity.
