What can you learn from being still? A lot actually. When you learn to stop and scale back your efforts, you increase your productivity. When the clues appear within your life, try your hardest to make sure you don’t miss them. It is human nature to overlook things that are right in our faces. These clues are not going to be placed at your feet; it’s not that easy my friend. You have to actually go out of your way to see them.
Wait For a Second
Pausing is the hardest thing to do considering that we are constantly on the move. From since we were children, we have been on the go time and time again. Most of the time, when we are going and going like the energizer bunny, we miss out on a lot on what life has to offer. We miss out on beautiful relationships; beautiful sunsets and good times. Besides, when you just keep going, you burn yourself out much more quickly.
If you are not stopping to pause, it’s important that you start giving yourself ample time to take it slow. Why did they add the pause button on the remote that works your movie player? So that you can hold the spot in the movie if you are ever distracted. The other functions on the remote are important, but the pause button has to be the most important function of all.
Who’s hiding the Remote?
The point of this article is to help you maintain control, to keep the universal remote in your hands and monitor who is holding it. If you lose the remote, you tend to lose control of your life. That is why it is called a remote control. You have the power to change the channel if you don’t like what is being showed or to turn down the volume. Pause where ever you are to take inventory of what has been happening in your life, and always remember, it is okay to come to a complete stop when you need too.
Locating the clues within your life can be tough, but it was not meant to be easy, so do not think of it as such. This will just cause you a lot of frustration and grief, which can be minimized dramatically with proper procedures. Instead, look at it as something that needs to be done. Make pausing as important as breathing, and keep on refreshing the process as you refresh your lungs with every breath.
Pause right now and look around you to see what is going on. If you continue to do this, in no time you won’t need the remote, because you will become it. Completely.
